Asset Sale Update

Fulcrum, the UK's market leading independent multi-utility infrastructure and services provider, is pleased to announce an increase in the cash consideration receivable for the sale of the first tranche of its domestic customer gas connection assets and associated meters, to E.S. Pipelines Limited (ESP).

As announced on 1 April 2020, the cash consideration for tranche one was initially estimated at GBP16.8 million (before related expenses) but has increased by GBP0.7 million to GBP17.5 million, as a result of:

   --      an increase in the annual Transportation Income (TI) generated by the assets sold; and 
   --      an increase in the number of associated meters transferred 

The additional consideration for tranche one has been agreed with ESP and cash of GBP0.7 million was received by the Group today, 30 June 2020.

The increase in TI is a result of the annual Relative Price Control (RPC) adjustments implemented in January 2020, in line with Ofgem licence conditions. Under the annual RPC adjustment, TI can increase or decrease and over the previous five years has ranged between a plus 2% and minus 2% threshold. The increase in January 2020 was at the top end of this range.

The increase in the number of associated meters transferred relates to new meters added to the estate between the contract agreement and the completion of tranche one on 31 March 2020. The total cash consideration from metering assets will vary in the future as a result of new meter additions to the estate and meter removals under the smart meter exchange programme.

These adjustments will also apply to future tranches of the asset sale. Accordingly, the total gross consideration receivable by the Company is now estimated at GBP48 million in cash, an increase of GBP2 million from the previous estimate of GBP46 million.
