CUSIP No. 441593100 SCHEDULE 13D Page 4 of 6


 The Schedule 13D, dated August 18, 2015, is filed by ORIX HLHZ Holding LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“HLHZ”), and ORIX Corporation, a Japan corporation (“ORIX” and, together with HLHZ, the “Reporting Persons”), with respect to Class A Common Stock of Houlihan Lokey, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”), is hereby amended as set forth below. This Amendment No. 12 to Schedule 13D does not restate disclosures in the original Schedule 13D that are not being amended, and should be read in conjunction with the original Schedule 13D. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings provided in the original Schedule 13D.

 

The purpose of this Amendment No. 12 is to report (i) the conversion by HLHZ of 394,374 shares of Class B Common Stock into an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock on August 21, 2018 (the “Conversion”) and (ii) the sale by HLHZ of 324,941 shares of Class A Common Stock in reliance on Rule 144 from August 3, 2018 to August 27, 2018 (collectively, the “144 Sales”).

 

Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:

 

Pursuant to that certain Stockholders’ Agreement, dated as of August 18, 2015 (the “Stockholders’ Agreement”), prior to the fifth anniversary of the Issuer’s IPO, so long as HLHZ’s Post-IPO Percentage Ownership (as defined in the Stockholders’ Agreement) was 10% or greater, HLHZ had the right to recommend three director nominees to the board of directors of the Issuer. As a result of recent sales of Class A Common Stock of the Issuer by HLHZ, the Post-IPO Percentage Ownership of HLHZ has decreased below 10%, as a result of which the number of director nominees that HLHZ is entitled to recommend pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement was reduced from three to one and the number of director nominees that the trustees of the HL Voting Trust are entitled to recommend was increased from five to seven.

 

On August 13, 2018, the Issuer, HLHZ and the trustees of the HL Voting Trust entered into a waiver agreement pursuant to which the Issuer and the trustees of the HL Voting Trust waived the provision of the Stockholders’ Agreement requiring HLHZ to take all actions necessary to cause the HLHZ-designated directors to tender their resignations within five business days of HLHZ’s Post-IPO Percentage Ownership dropping below 10%, and HLHZ agreed to take all actions necessary to cause such directors to tender their resignations within one business day of receiving a written request from the trustees of the HL Voting Trust to do so. HLHZ understands that the trustees of the HL Voting Trust are considering potential director candidates and plan to request HLHZ to cause their designated directors to tender their resignations once they have identified their nominees for such replacements and/or the Issuer determines to reduce the size of the board of directors to eliminate any such vacancies. Such waiver incorporated and replaced a prior waiver, dated November 3, 2017, with respect to one HLHZ-designated director, which was entered into following the reduction of HLHZ’s Post-IPO Percentage Ownership below 20%.

 

Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

The 31,882,912 shares of Class A Common Stock reported as beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons consist of 6,377,935 shares held directly by HLHZ and indirectly by ORIX, as HLHZ is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of ORIX ( the “Subject Shares”) and 25,504,977 shares held by the HL Voting Trust. Other than the 609,721 shares of Class A Common Stock held by HLHZ, these shares are receivable upon conversion of a like number of shares of Class B Common Stock:

 

  Shares of Class A Common Stock Beneficially Owned Percentage of Class A Common Stock Represented(a)
Reporting Persons  6,377,935 15.6%
HL Voting Trust(b) 25,504,977 42.5%
Total  31,882,912 48.5%

(a) Based on (i) 34,491,130 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding as reported in Amendment No. 10 to the HL Voting Trust’s Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 21, 2018, after giving effect to the Conversion and the 144 Sales, and (ii) 31,273,191 shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding of which 25,504,977 shares of Class B Common stock are subject to the HL Voting Trust as of the date hereof and 5,768,214 shares of Class B Common Stock are owned directly by HLHZ. Each calculation assumes conversion of the Class B Common Stock into the number of shares of Class A Common Stock listed in that row and assumes no other holders of Class B Common Stock convert their shares.
(b) Based on 25,504,977 shares of Class B Common Stock subject to the HL Voting Trust as reported in Amendment No. 10 to the HL Voting Trust’s Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 21, 2018.

 

 

 

CUSIP No. 441593100 SCHEDULE 13D Page 5 of 6

 

By reason of the Stockholders’ Agreement, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own the shares in the HL Voting Trust; however, the Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of such shares. Together, the parties to the Stockholders’ Agreement hold approximately 90.2% of the voting power of the Issuer’s outstanding capital stock.

 

No other person is known to the Reporting Persons to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Subject Shares beneficially owned by any of the Reporting Persons.
