Seawater Desalination Technology: SEEKING ACCREDITED INVESTORS
“The Big Short” movie concludes with “Michael Burry is focusing all of his trading on one commodity: Water.” If you neither saw the movie nor read Michael Lewis’s book of the same name, Burry was the financial genius who saw the economic crash coming in 2008, then placed trades on a bet that the housing market would crash.
“With demand for water outpacing supply by 40%…this situation presents a massive opportunity for investors and analysts in the areas of desalination, ‘smart’ water meters, efficient irrigation technologies, wastewater treatment, infrastructure, engineering, and other water-related businesses…the desalination industry alone is projected to be worth as much as $25 billion by 2025.” Source, page 102
While Burry’s investments in water are indirect (via food production), here’s another way to invest in it.
As their investment banker, we are seeking Accredited Investors to invest in the Private Placement Offering of a company raising money to commercialize their seawater desalination technology (Regulation D Rule 506(c) exemption).
Our client has a portfolio of a dozen advanced water and renewable energy technologies, mostly co-developed with National Labs in the U.S. and overseas. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, has a lab facility in the Monterey Bay area, and its market is global.
Their primary product is a modular, scalable, seawater desalination system that achieves the lowest power consumption and carbon footprint in the industry, using only renewable energy, no added chemicals or on-site operators, while remaining environmentally benign, with the lowest projected total cost of ownership (all unique attributes).
One of the world’s foremost desalination technology engineering experts believes they have a “three to five year technology lead on the market” for distributed seawater desalination systems. Almost $18 million was spent on development and testing; they are now raising capital for global commercialization.
Additionally, this particular investment may offer social benefits. While the company was created as a profit-driven entity first and foremost, this proposition would qualify as a triple bottom line investment:
- profit-driven, investment expectation at risk-adjusted, negotiated market cost of capital;
- environmentally sensitive; and,
- social and community development-supportive, sustainable resource management.
Just think how socially destabilizing global water insecurity could be!
They have a detailed Business & Technology plan, with all the expected financial models and due diligence items ready for review under Non-Disclosure Agreement. Please note that the opportunity to invest in this private placement offering is limited to Accredited Investors, as defined in the Securities Act of 1933, and verification of status is required by securities law (applies to U.S. residents).
Please contact me if interested. (415) 294-0002
