We’re Expanding to America...

Based on the announcement post it seems like this has a lot of downsides for authors (and possible a lot of headaches for the company) but I couldn't really find any clear benefits...? Does anyone know what was the problem with their current / previous company structure?

Seems that way to me, too. Collis will be doing an AMA on here next month though so could a good chance to ask him!

Most likely tax reasons and not getting screwed on exchanges rates when funneling the money back to AU is a huge plus too :) but those are just my ideas.
