The Hyperion Group

The Hyperion Group is headquartered in New York, where it was founded in 1988 by Lewis Ranieri, former vice chairman of Salomon Brothers. Hyperion's family of funds comprises a series of successful merchant banking funds that invest in both start-ups and mature companies. In aggregate, the Hyperion funds and their respective portfolio companies manage more than $1 billion in capital.  

Hyperion has proven expertise in organizing IPOs and equity offerings. These offerings have at times been exit events and at other times been a vehicle for raising less expensive public equity to fully actualize a portfolio company's business plan.
