Interview with Houlihan Lokey Restructuring for Summer Analyst Program NYC (INTERVIEW TIPS?)

Hey guys/gals,

I have a first round with HL RX on campus and was wondering what I should expect technical wise. I'm an econ major with some finance experience, so I'm trying to figure out what I should prep for, thanks. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Top RX shop, so expect some tough technicals. Know what makes a company 'distressed', how valuation differs for a distressed company, probably questions about PIK debt, and different tranches of debt.

this is a brtual interview process (i had it for FT)...but not sure how intense it was for SA kids. how was it for you?

could you elaborate a little? heard they were very technical and it seems like you went through the process recently.

Can't speak for SA interviews but knows bond pricing questions, capital structure, and distressed valuation questions. You can PM me and I'll give you a few ideas of what you could expect. Id suggest reading the HL case study as well just to get an idea of how distressed m&a/valuation/RX works.

Very technical - you may get LBO situations/questions (albeit simpler) depending on how you sell yourself on experience.
