Corporate Finance—Healthcare Group
Houlihan Lokey has extensive expertise in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, takeover defense and other related advisory services for a broad range of clients. Our experience in M&A has earned us recognition throughout the industry. In 2011, we were ranked the No. 1 M&A advisor for U.S. transactions under $1 billion by Thomson Reuters.
As trusted advisors, we have the proven ability to engineer and execute financing solutions that are essential for growth and success. We offer access to financing in the public and alternative capital markets through the issuance of debt, equity or hybrid securities.
Our integrated Capital Markets Group provides clients with independent solutions, free from conflicts of interest arising from credit extensions or proprietary investments. This dedicated team of financial professionals handles large, complex engagements and all aspects of capital-raising to help maximize its clients’ financial flexibility over the long term. Thanks to our extensive relationships with alternative capital providers, we have the unique ability to raise customized capital for those situations where the public markets do not offer an attractive solution. In addition, we offer liability management expertise, enabling issuers to optimize their capital structure or resolve conflicts with existing debt securities.
Houlihan Lokey’s Capital Markets team has decades of combined experience and a track record of successfully executed financings in a variety of market conditions.

With more than 25 investment bankers in Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, and San Francisco, Houlihan Lokey’s Healthcare Group is among the largest dedicated healthcare investment banking groups in the country.
