Bala Cynwyd, Pa.-based Hamilton Lane Inc., an affiliate of Hamilton Lane Advisors LLC, has filed for an initial public offering of its class A common stock.
The proposed maximum aggregate offering price is about $200 million, estimated solely to calculate the registration fee.
Hamilton Lane, an independent alternative investment management firm, was incorporated in Delaware on Dec. 31, 2007, and has had no business operations prior to the offering.
Hamilton Lane intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the offering to purchase membership units in Hamilton Lane Advisors from certain of its existing owners, and the remaining net proceeds to purchase newly issued membership units in the company. Hamilton Lane Advisors is expected to use the proceeds to repay debt and for general corporate purposes.
Following a corporate reorganization and the consummation of the IPO, Hamilton Lane will be a holding company, and its sole asset will be an equity interest in Hamilton Lane Advisors, of which it will serve as the sole managing member.
Hamilton Lane plans to apply to list its class A common stock on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the symbol HLNE.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are acting as joint book-running managers of the offering. Goldman Sachs & Co. is acting as lead co-manager, and Keefe Bruyette & Woods Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities LLC are serving as co-managers of the offering.
