WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - U.S. investors, including Oracle Corp ORCL.N, are set to hold at least a 60% stake in TikTok, a person briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The U.S. Treasury submitted a revised term sheet to ByteDance late Wednesday to address national security concerns that was agreed to by the Chinese parent of TikTok, the source said. The new company, called TikTok Global, will have a majority of American directors and a U.S. chief executive. Oracle has agreed to take a 20% stake in the company when it is created and Walmart Inc is also expected to take an equity stake and have a seat on TikTok Global's board, the source said.
