Long Point Capital Portfolio

Torrent Resources


Business Description

Torrent Resources, Inc. is a leading provider of stormwater drainage solutions in the Southwestern United States and is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. Torrent’s proprietary MaxWell™ drywells are unmatched in efficiency and reliability for stormwater disposal applications. Torrent also provides products for pre-treatment filtering, recharging, and other specialized stormwater applications.

Transaction Overview

Long Point Capital invested in Torrent through a leveraged recapitalization structure, where the owners of the Company monetized the majority of the illiquid value contained in their business, while continuing to retain a significant ownership interest in the Company and maintaining operational control along with the existing management team.


Torrent has increased product acceptance in Southern California, expanded its drywell service and maintenance business, and is pursuing growth in emerging markets across the western U.S. As a step to achieving liquidity for its investors, Long Point has sold the Company to a newly formed ESOP while retaining a significant investment in the business.

Add-On Acquisition Criteria

Torrent is seeking acquisitions of niche companies of any size that provide complementary stormwater services and products.
