China Water Pollution Play: Duoyuan Global Water (DGW) IPO Coming

duoyuan_global_water_dgw_ipo The growth in China over the past 10 years or so has been staggering and despite a global economic crisis, the economy is still growing around 6% (so they say).  With an attitude of growth at any cost and a mass migration to China cities, you have to assume that water pollution and scarcity could very well choke the economy in the coming years. 

Guo Youzhi, general secretary of the China Desalination Association, said that only 20 percent of industrial wastewater in the country is efficiently re-utilized and 80 percent is being simply discharged.

Duoyuan Global Water (DGW) which IPO’s next week aims to alleviate some of the concern.  The  company distributes its water treatment equipment which includes filtration, water softening, water sediment separation, disinfection and reverse osmosis throughout 28 Chinese provinces.  The company is growing quickly with revenues rising 40% and net income jumping 63% over 2007 levels.. The company cites population growth and industrialization as factors that are driving demand for water treatment in the country.

The IPO is expected to price on June 23rd and begin trading the next day on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “DGW”.  The company plans to sell 5 million ADRs between $13 – 15/share with the proceeds being used to improve and build new facilities including research facilities as well as create new products.

Im playing this IPO by buying CLWT, a Nasdaq listed company thats been in the China water infrastructure business for several years. CLWT should get a big boost from the DGW IPO, market cap is only 15mil with 10mil in cash, no debt.
