H.I.G. Acquisition II, the second blank check company formed by H.I.G. Capital targeting TMT or healthcare, filed on Monday with the SEC to raise up to $300 million in an initial public offering.

The Miami, FL-based company plans to raise $300 million by offering 30 million units at $10. Each unit consists of one share of common stock and one-fourth of a warrant, exercisable at $11.50. At the proposed deal size, H.I.G. Acquisition II would command a market value of $375 million.
