An opportunity to create wealth while doing good
How do you calculate a market cap of a company that can affect the water supply for 800 million people?
How do you calculate a market cap of a company that can affect the water supply for 800 million people?
With fresh water, we grow our crops, cook our food and nourish our bodies. Without it, we can’t survive. Even as we explore space, the first question about any planet is whether there is a presence of water. In developed countries, many of us take water for granted. Turn on the tap, and there it is, ready to drink.
Yet there are too many places where it’s not nearly so simple. Places where it takes hours to bring home a precious jug of water from a well, where water is contaminated and often the carrier of deadly diseases. At Rainmaker our purpose is to serve communities in need anywhere in the world, so that nobody thirsts for water.
Michael O’Connor, CEO of Rainmaker delivers an inspiring speech on innovation at TEDxRotterdam. According to Michael O’Connor, water is the new gold. More and more people on this planet are deprived of their access to clean water, a necessity and therefore a human right. What better cause to get aspired for.
Rainmaker Worldwide Inc. is a publicly traded company, headquartered in Peterborough, Canada, with an innovation and manufacturing center in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Rainmaker is listed on the Over the Counter Markets (OTC:RAKR). Our patented water technology provides economical drinking water wherever it’s needed and at scale.
RobecoSAM Water: The Market of the Future, estimates that the market opportunities related to the water sector could reach $1 trillion by 2025.1
Rainmaker builds two types of energy-efficient, fresh water-producing technologies to participate in this opportunity.
1. Air-to-Water, which harvests fresh water from humidity in the atmosphere.
2. Water-to-Water, which transforms seawater or polluted water into drinking water. Our technology is both wind and solar powered, is deployable anywhere, and leaves no carbon.
We also offer options for grid and diesel powered models. Rainmaker occupies the optimum and most flexible position when it comes to size, capacity and cost. The technology can easily and quickly be deployed where drinking water is needed most.
Air-to-Water units are available in three sizes, producing 5,000, 10,000 or 20,000 liters of drinking water per day. Water-to-Water units are available in three sizes producing 37,500, 75,000 or 150,000 liters per day. This makes each unit suitable for communities of 200 to 30,000 people, depending on units deployed. Rainmaker water is affordable — costing as little as 0.5¢ per liter, which is up to 100% less expensive than competitive technology production.
Our goal is to become a global leader in solving the worldwide water crisis. Simply put, we’re creating safe, drinking water where little or none exists.
Total Available Market (TAM)
The global water market was estimated at approximately $600 billion in 2014.3
Serviceable Available Market (SAM)
The drinking water market is estimated at 10%.3
Serviceable Obtainable Market (SOM)
Our target market is the estimated 800 million people who do not have access to clean water.4
The World Health Organization specifies 50 liters per person per day as the recommended ‘intermediate’ quantity needed to maintain health, hygiene, and for all domestic uses.5
For the humanitarian market, we believe we are the best choice for communities of 200 to 30,000, with typical locations in the Middle East, North Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
There are also significant opportunities in heavy industry. Processing and refineries are looking for cost-effective solutions to clean up their waste water, rivers, lakes, harbors, and waterfronts.
In our sweet spot of serving communities of 200 to 30,000 people, we offer many distinct competitive advantages including:
We do not compete in the markets for household-size units, or on the other extreme, desalination for cities or countries such as San Diego or Israel.
The Company began in 2008 as Dutch Rainmaker by inventor Piet Oosterling.
It evolved through 2014, with units of the first-generation technology deployed in Kuwait and Northern Holland.
To date, over $15 million has been invested in technology research, development and deployment.
The second-generation units have improved energy efficiency by as much as 100%, significantly reducing the cost of each liter of water produced. The units are approximately 50% more energy efficient than those of our competitors.
Rainmaker Worldwide Inc. was formed in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada in 2014 to consolidate all assets, intellectual property, and the executive management expertise of Dutch Rainmaker.
Round 1 financing was completed December 2015. The first full year of operation was 2016.
– Michael O’Connor, Rainmaker CEO
Rainmaker’s proven and patented technology is delivered in units that we believe are the right size for the majority of communities in need of water. Our units deliver from 5,000 to 150,000 liters of water per day per unit.
Rainmaker technology is available either as a capital purchase, or on a Water-As-A-Service basis. This flexibility meets the needs of various governments, corporations and organizations.
Rainmaker technology can be powered by wind, solar, grid, and diesel, or a combination thereof. This addresses the reality of the market, where water-poor regions often lack robust electrical grids.
The need for fresh water in locations around the world continues to grow. Current world population is approximately 7.5 billion, projected to become 8 billion by 2023 and 9 billion by 2038.6
Much of this new growth will come in regions that are water poor, specifically African countries, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Mexico.
Furthermore, environmental damage due to climate change will help fuel ongoing growth. Precipitation has become less predictable, and regions that are water rich today, may soon need to generate water.
Rainmaker is fully operational. Our overall sales pipeline has continuously increased with new projects and applications. In 2017, revenues are expected to reach $4.9 million, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR), 2017 – 2021, of 120%. We have incorporated revenues from both product sales as well as water sales for projects where water is provided as a service.
With new financing and the availability of project financing going forward, this balance could shift.
Our management team is experienced in launching, managing, and operating high-growth companies. They have led numerous companies through successful IPOs.
