About Houlihan Lokey

Founded in 1972, investment banking firm Houlihan Lokey employs more than 2,600 people worldwide. Although it’s best known as an advisor to mid-cap companies and a restructuring house, Houlihan Lokey also serves large public corporations and small private companies.  On August 13, 2015, the firm became a public company, listing on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HLI. 

Underscoring its prowess in the deal markets, Houlihan Lokey is currently ranked No. 1 in announced M&A transactions for all U.S. transactions, No. 1 globally in restructuring, and the No. 1 M&A fairness opinion advisor over the past 20 years, according to Refinitiv.

Led by CEO Scott Beiser, Houlihan Lokey operates through three main business lines: corporate finance (comprising mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, private funds advisory, and board advisory services), financial restructuring, and financial and valuation advisory. The firm is headquartered in Los Angeles, and has additional U.S. offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. In all, it has 35 locations around the world, including overseas offices in Europe (Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich); the Middle East (Dubai and Tel Aviv); and the Asia-Pacific region (Beijing, Fukuoka, Gurugram, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong SAR, Mumbai, Osaka, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo).

Over the past decade, the firm has made several acquisitions. Most recently, in 2021, the firm acquired GCA Corporation, a global technology-focused investment bank and Houlihan Lokey’s largest acquisition to date. The two companies fully integrated at the end of 2021, adding to the firm more than 500 employees and 24 locations across the globe.
