HydroEdge Closes $8 Million Financing

MCMURRAY, PA–(Marketwired – November 09, 2017) – HydroEdge Solutions, a privately held leading turnkey water solutions provider to the U.S. energy marketplace, today announced that it has completed an $8 million round of debt financing with an independent, third party lender. Under the terms of the transaction, the Company has received a $3 million revolving line of credit and a $5 million one-year term loan.

HydroEdge, along with related affiliates, provides water solutions to oil & gas, municipal, mining, and other industries. Leveraging key customer and supplier relationships in an otherwise highly fragmented industry, the Company’s strong customer retention drives recurring project revenue that provides excellent visibility to its new-business pipeline. In a domestic energy market that is in recovery mode, HydroEdge is experiencing out-sized growth, robust profitability, and cash flow.

The capital raised in this financing will be used to fund rapidly growing operations, receivables, capex and as general working capital.

HydroEdge, which maintains a deep base of global blue-chip customers in both the private and public sectors – including EQT Corp., CNX Gas Company, LLC – a subsidiary of Consol Energy, Rice Energy, Statoil, and EdgeMarc Energy – boasts an attractive financial growth profile. HydroEdge is on track to increase its 2017 revenue 67 percent to approximately $13.2 million with $2.7 million in EBITDA. It is projected to organically grow revenue another 40 percent in 2018 to $18.5 million with $4.4 million in EBITDA.

“Aggressively expanding our product and servicing offering, while maintaining lean operations, are key components of our strategy,” said Matt Brewer, Chief Executive Officer of HydroEdge. “This financing validates our business model and enables us to rapidly expand our customer base and diversify revenue sources while ensuring the best-in-class service and reliability upon which our growing reputation is built.”
