Inversions have been scrutinized heavily for the past year, yet companies continue to pursue mergers or acquisitions resulting in an inversion. This latest U.S. Treasury action was significantly more aggressive than earlier legislation introduced by U.S. House Ways and Means Committee Democrats and may signal the end of inversions transacted without a justifiable business strategy.
