AquaVenture Holdings (AVH)
AquaVenture primarily operates as a water supplier in North and South America, the Caribbean and the Middle East. The company was founded in 2006 and went public in 2016. AquaVenture operates through two subsidiaries: Quench and Seven Seas Water. Quench produces water filtration systems such as water dispensers for home and office, ice machines and coffee machines. Thus, Quench covers the business area "drinking water systems". Seven Seas Water is a water supplier but also active in sewage treatment and even operates within the seawater desalination sector. However, the desalination operations are only responsible for a small part of the revenue. Customers of all areas include both private households and industrial companies. AquaVenture therefore covers almost the entire water cycle with the water treatment business receiving the great part of the incoming revenue. However, the subsidiary Quench is also active in the growing market for water dispensers and the so-called "bottle-free drinking" - business.

It is particularly active in the areas of water disposal systems, pipeline systems, house drainage systems, rinsing systems and installation systems.

The takeover was aimed at increasing the presence in the bathroom equipment area and expanding the product range through bathroom ceramics.

Taking into account the still lacking basic sanitary infrastructure in Africa, Geberit could benefit strongly from a sustainable investment in sanitation across this region.

Toto Limited
Toto offers sanitary equipment and kitchen accessories all over the world. The company is mainly active in the bathroom equipment and produces, among other things, toilets, bathtubs and sinks. Moreover, systems and products to use water more efficiently and consequently reduce the water consumption of households have been produced by Toto for many years. Thus, the company is deeply rotted within the sanitary business and commands huge expertise in the sanitary sector. For example, toilets are produced that consume significantly less water than models from other manufacturers. Toto is active through subsidiaries worldwide. By many people seen as a big advantage, Toto Ltd. also operates in countries such as India, Indonesia or Vietnam, where the average sanitation of a private household is still below the western standards. But according to the UN, a huge amount of investments are urgently needed in the coming years to stop diseases caused by a lack of sanitation facilities.

Principles of successful Investments by Warren Buffett:

    1. Buy cheap, never sell.
    2. Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
    3. The stupidest reason to buy a stock is because it rises.
    4. Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.
    5. If you aren’t thinking about owning a stock for 10 years, don’t even think about owning it for 10 minutes.
    6. Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you are doing.
