Houlihan Lokey Opens Dubai Office

DUBAI – September 26, 2017 – Houlihan Lokey, Inc. (NYSE:HLI), the global investment bank, today announced that it has formally opened its Dubai office. Jointly led by Managing Directors Arun Reddy and Joseph Julian, the Dubai office offers clients the full suite of Houlihan Lokey’s services, including M&A, capital markets, valuation services, and restructuring.

“Houlihan Lokey has a long and successful track record of establishing its reputation and relationships in new geographies by leading with its top-ranked Financial Restructuring capabilities, as we have done with office openings in Europe and Asia over the past few years, and Dubai is no different,” said David Preiser, Co-President of Houlihan Lokey. “We see a tremendous opportunity for clients in the region to benefit from our expertise in Corporate Finance and Financial Advisory Services, and we’re excited to bring these capabilities to our clients across the Middle East,” he added.

Recently completed and current engagements in the region include Dana Gas, Ojer Telekomünikasyon (OTAS), Oasis Holdings, and ADEEM.

“As liquidity needs continue to increase throughout the region, coupled with a rapidly improving regulatory and legal environment, we see a substantial opportunity for our Capital Markets business. We have global market knowledge and deep relationships among a wide range of alternative capital providers. This insight enables Houlihan Lokey to originate, structure, and execute bespoke financing solutions using non-traditional sources of capital, and we look forward to further expanding our service offering to clients in the region,” said Mr. Reddy.

The firm plans to hire local financial professionals to augment the team that has relocated from existing offices.
