Potrebbe, tanto per spararne una al buio, trattarsi di Foreign-Owned Affiliate, ammesso che parliamo degli USA. Ecco la definizione: A business in the United States in which there is sufficient foreign investment to be classified as direct foreign investment. To determine fully the foreign owners of a U.S. affiliate, three entities must be identified: the foreign parent, the ultimate beneficial owner, and the foreign parent group.
Ma potrebbe anche trattarsi di Franchise Operating Agreement. Chissà che andando avanti nella lettura del documento non ti si accenda la lampadina giusta ;)
