Houlihan Lokey Advises Liquid Robotics

Houlihan Lokey is pleased to announce that Liquid Robotics has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA). Houlihan Lokey served as the exclusive financial advisor to Liquid Robotics.

Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., Liquid Robotics designs and manufactures the Wave Glider® unmanned surface vehicle. The Wave Glider is the world's first ocean robot to be powered 100% by wave and solar energy, revolutionizing how the ocean is monitored and protected by gathering data in ways and locations previously too costly or challenging to operate. The Wave Glider's platform supports a wide range of end-market applications, including anti-submarine warfare, surface vessel detection, illegal fishing, Marine Protected Areas monitoring, and various application areas for environmental assessment and the oil and gas market. With more than one million nautical miles traveled to-date, Wave Gliders address challenges facing defense, commercial, and science customers by making ocean data collection and communications easier, safer, and real-time.
