Xylem to boost smart water platform with new acquisition.

NYSE-listed Xylem has announced the close of its $400 million purchase of Canadian leak detection specialist Pure Technologies - and the simultaneous acquisition of sewer and stormwater analytics start-up EmNet.

Pure and EmNet will be combined with Xylem's existing software and analytics businesses Visenti and Hypack to form a new Advanced Infrastructure Solutions business unit, which will be headed by current vice president of strategy and business development Al Cho.

First formed as a partnership between the City of South Bend, Indiana and the University of Notre Dame, EmNet has developed network modelling and optimisation solutions which will be a "pivotal addition" to Xylem's existing smart water portfolio, according to CEO Patrick Decker.

Xylem's digital strategy is proving a significant factor in the company's strong year-on-year growth - in today's full-year earnings announcement, the firm projects revenues could be as high as $5.2 billion in 2018, up 6% organically on last year.
