The article is devoted to the study of digital companies and the identifying the features of their international activities. The article gives a classification of companies, analyzes the scale of their activities and geographical distribution. The study revealed the features of transnationalization in the activities of digital companies, which, first of all, include the following: a change in the role of foreign direct investment, since the digital economy allows companies to work on a global scale and operate in foreign markets with virtually no physical presence, the need for a limited amount of foreign assets for doing business, the concentration of investments of digital companies, their parent companies and foreign branches in several developed countries, primarily in the United States. The introduction of digital technologies leads to a change in the content of international commercial operations: completely new multinational business models emerge, a radical transformation of international operations takes place, as a result the digitalization fundamentally changes the nature of international activities of companies.
