These regulations represent important guidance regarding when a controlled foreign corporation can take advantage of the manufacturing exception by making a "substantial contribution" in a (related or unrelated) contract manufacturing arrangement. They also potentially apply to groups whose controlled foreign corporations have been structured into unrelated-to-unrelated transactions, thereby potentially introducing manufacturing branch rules issues into those structures.
