Amane Advisors has successfully supported Typhon in securing financial backing from Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures

Amane Advisors has successfully supported innovative water treatment equipment company Typhon Treatment Systems to secure critical financial backing from Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV), the corporate venturing subsidiary of Aramco, the world’s largest integrated energy company.

Established in 2014, UK-based Typhon offers the world’s first LED-based UV water treatment technology for high flow municipal and industrial applications, delivering as much as 90% energy efficiency savings over traditional UV technology. Typhon’s systems are focused on disinfection of microorganisms and photochemical advanced oxidation processes (AOP) for removal of micropollutants. Through lower temperature operation and chemical-free disinfection processes, their solutions provide significantly lower lifecycle costs, reducing opex by up to 70%. The ingenuity of the technology was reflected at the 2019 Global Water Awards where the company was awarded a distinction in the Breakthrough Technology Company of the Year category.

Seeking to take the company to the next stage of growth, Typhon engaged Amane as its exclusive advisor to assist in raising additional capital to expand manufacturing capability and scale their business further in both national and international markets.

Working closely with Typhon’s leadership team, Amane managed the entire end-to-end fundraising process, from investment documentation development, investor outreach and evaluation to due diligence and final investment agreement negotiation. By leveraging our deep understanding of the global water industry and extensive network within the sector, Amane adds unique value through assisting business plan refinement, reinforcing technology positioning in the market, and connecting Typhon to leading water investors.

“Working with Amane’s global team enabled us to conduct a comprehensive search for our equity investment. The Amane team worked hard to bring the deal together” stated Peter McNulty, CEO of Typhon Treatment Systems. “Venture Capital finance is never easy, but Amane ran an excellent process”.

Thierry Noel, Founding Partner of Amane Advisors adds, “From our first meeting with Typhon we were convinced that the technology and solutions developed were unique and differentiated. We are thrilled that the fundraising closed bringing the necessary cash for Typhon’s expansion globally. And very important with an investor committed to the water industry bringing strategic value and which we expect will accelerate the management team’s plans. As Amane, we are always delighted and honoured to work with clients who want and can change our industry by bringing significant economic, environmental and social impact.”
