I lean towards thinking CompanyName.US suggests that you are a U.S. based entity when, in fact, that's not the case.

In the past .us was considered a bit spam like, I'm not sure if that is still a concern...
.US has never been considered spammy (for SEO purposes). The reason is was never spammed out is because spammers can't do a private registration with it.Perhaps not for SEO purposes but that rather clueless discounted registrations offer did inflate the zone and attracted the wrong kind of registrations. Many of those registrations washed out of the zone when the domain names came up for renewal. (Saw a lot of the same stuff that appeared in the discounted new gTLDs appearing in .US ccTLD when running web usage surveys.)
