Platform will tap up to 64,500 institutional investors/lenders and 600,000+ accredited investors
Clearwater, FL – August 3, 2022 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC Pink: OCLN), the Clean Water Innovation Hub™, announces that it has named investment bank Castle Placement (“Castle”) (www.castleplacement.com) as its exclusive placement agent to build the capital base for its Water On Demand™ program.
Funds to Finance Recycling Equipment
The Company intends to combine its $300 million private offering to accredited and institutional investors in the US and internationally with a planned offering for unaccredited investors which may target up to $75 million, conducted by its wholly owned subsidiary Water on Demand, Inc. Until the launch of the offerings with Castle, investors may learn more at www.water.originclear.com/offer.
The Company intends to allocate the bulk of the funds raised to finance water recycling equipment. To hear the latest developments, join OriginClear CEO every Thursday on his weekly Zoom briefing at www.originclear.com/ceo.
Water as an Investable Commodity
"We’re excited to help OriginClear implement its revolutionary pay-per-gallon water recycling program,” said Richard Luftig, Castle Placement Managing Partner (www.linkedin.com/in/richard-luftig-51a94b4). “We intend to make this investment opportunity available to targeted investors on our platform (64,500 institutional investors/lenders and 600,000+ accredited investors), and we look forward to collaborating on a powerful offering for unaccredited investors too.”
“This is an exciting project,” added Luftig. “It provides an opportunity for investors to invest in water equipment with the potential for long-term royalties. This facilitates water as an investable commodity, as growing numbers of businesses invest in on-site water recycling, relieving stresses on overburdened municipal systems.”
Local water recycling is now becoming law in many jurisdictions. As CNBC recently reported, “San Francisco recently passed a law requiring every new building over 100,000 square feet to have a water-recycling system. There are similar requirements in Los Angeles, and programs like it are cropping up in Denver, Austin, Texas, and New York City.”
“Water On Demand can help businesses eliminate or mitigate their dependency on municipal sewage treatment, which can be costly or possibly unavailable,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear CEO. “This is a growing trend as city water systems fall behind on funding ─ and populations increasingly migrate away from big urban centers. For wastewater producers, the ability to pay-as-you-go for water recycling is revolutionary. For investors, Water on Demand enables them to participate in the financing of these services at a stage we believe is undervalued.”
About OriginClear Inc.
Once a government monopoly, Clean Water is going private. Local industries and communities are now treating and recycling their own water, helping to reduce the burden on municipal systems and save on fast-rising water rates while also responding to the challenge of climate change. That’s good for business and good for sustainability, and now the innovative fintech, Water On Demand™, is enabling this megatrend. For the first time, Clean Water is becoming an investable asset, open to Main Street investors, with the potential for generational royalties. OriginClear® is the Clean Water Innovation Hub™ for both Water On Demand and Modular Water Systems™ – a leader in onsite, prefabricated systems made with sophisticated materials that can last decades.
