* Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank are underwriters
* Era plans to list Class A common stock on NYSE under the
Aug 2 Helicopter operator Era Group Inc, owned
by SEACOR Holdings Inc , filed with U.S. regulators to
raise up to $150 million in an initial public offering of its
Class A common stock.
In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, the company said Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and
Deutsche Bank would be underwriting the offering.
The Lake Charles, Louisiana-based company said it would use
proceeds from the offering to repay a portion of advances
received from SEACOR, which owns 100 percent of the outstanding
common stock and will continue to be the controlling stockholder
after the offering.
The company plans to list its shares on the New York Stock
Exchange under the symbol "ERA."
The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its
first IPO filing is used to calculate registration fees. The
final size of the IPO can be different.
