Water Intelligence will use the proceeds mainly for the continued re-acquisition of four franchises of American Leak Detection (ALD) in the US. The deal is said to enable the firm to expedite its growth strategy of developing a one-stop-shop water infrastructure platform.

The water leak detection services provider could also use a part of the proceeds for carrying out bolt-on acquisitions and to fund additional training centres.

Dr. Patrick DeSouza — Water Intelligence Executive Chairman said: “We are pleased to announce the successful close of our oversubscribed capital raise which received significant demand from existing and new investors. We appreciate the continued support of our existing investors and are pleased to welcome new high quality institutional investors to our shareholder register.

“The proceeds will help us accelerate our ambitious growth strategy of building a leading multinational water infrastructure platform. Global market demand for water and wastewater infrastructure solutions is only growing and impacted by the realities of climate change.

“We look forward to taking a leadership role in providing solutions globally.”
