Severn Trent Plc Interim Management Statement for the period 1 October 2013 to 13 February 2014 The Board of Severn Trent Plc confirms that the group's trading performance overall remains in line with its expectations and prior guidance. Regulated business Consumption across our measured income base is expected to be slightly higher year on year, given current volumes. Our forecasted bad debt level is maintained at around 2.2% of turnover for the full year, and we continue to monitor developments such as unemployment levels and changes to the UK benefits system closely. Operating expenditure continues to be in line with the Board's expectations for the year and, on a like for like basis, in line with the level of the Final Determination. Operating costs are expected to rise year on year due to the impact of inflation and power costs, partially offset by efficiency improvements. We currently anticipate no material financial impact from the present floods. Net capital expenditure (UK GAAP after deducting grants and contributions) is expected to be towards the low end of the GBP600 million to GBP620 million range, including an estimated GBP15 million related to private drains and sewers. The level of net infrastructure renewals expenditure included in this range is anticipated to be GBP135 million to GBP145 million. On 2 December 2013 Severn Trent Water submitted its business plan for 2015-2020 to Ofwat. On 19 December 2013, Ofwat published a revised price review process and timetable. Ofwat subsequently published guidance on risk and reward on 27 January 2014. We await further announcements from Ofwat on plan ratings, starting on March 10 2014. Non-regulated business Operating Services continues to perform well year on year, but in Products shipments have been below expectations in the last two months due to continuing customer project and delivery delays. Therefore for the full year Severn Trent Services underlying PBIT is now expected to be lower year on year. Group The group interest charge is expected to be higher year on year due to higher net debt and with the adoption of revisions to IAS19 increasing the pension accounting interest charge. The year on year impact of this revision to IAS19 is estimated at GBP13m. The effective current tax rate for the group for 2013/14 is expected to be between 21% and 23%. Under our dividend policy of RPI+3% growth the dividend for 2013/14 is set to be 80.40 pence, representing growth of 6% year on year. Severn Trent Plc will announce its Preliminary results for the financial year ending 31 March 2014 on 29 May 2014.

The gain follows the proposal from the industry regulator, Ofwat, that the weighed average cost of capital be towards the upper end of its pre-qualification guidance. Ofwat proposed a WACC across the industry of 3.85%. Although this is lower than the 5.1% previously allowed, it is more than many had expected given political pressure to restrict utility company profits.

Nice continued upward movement. Yesterday, Severn Trent up 1.5%. The gain follows the proposal from the industry regulator, Ofwat, that the weighed average cost of capital be towards the upper end of its pre-qualification guidance. Ofwat proposed a WACC across the industry of 3.85%. Although this is lower than the 5.1% previously allowed, it is more than many had expected given political pressure to restrict utility company profits. What do you think, MIATA?

JPM We believe that Ofwat's decision to alter the price review timetable and announce the key financial parameters on January 27th is likely to herald a lower allowed WACC than the companies requested in their business plans. We have reduced our vanilla WACC assumptions for the next regulatory review period from 4.2% to 3.9%. We also see M&A this year as unlikely given the degree of regulatory risk, with Ofwat's final determinations not due until December 2014. We reduce our SVT price target by 8.6% to 1,535p; downgrade our recommendation to Underweight and add it to the European Analyst Focus list (AFL) replacing Snam. Ofwat to publish key financial parameters on 27th January. On 19th December 2013, the UK water regulator (Ofwat) announced that it had changed the price review timetable. It will now publish its views on key financial metrics such as the cost of capital and retail margins on 27 January 2014. Ofwat's rationale for the change was that "companies' views on risk and reward...are not in alignment with market evidence". Reducing our wholesale WACC assumption to 3.9%. Ofwat's Chief Regulation Officer, Sonia Brown, stated in a presentation on 13 November 2013 that the "cost of capital will fall...there is a real opportunity for this number to start with a 3." We therefore lower our wholesale vanilla WACC assumption from 4.2% to 3.9%, this compares to 5.1% in the current regulatory period. We see M&A as unlikely until the regulatory review completes. In our view, given the uncertainty over allowed returns, M&A is unlikely until Ofwat publishes its final determination in December 2014. We have therefore excluded any M&A premia from our price targets for all three quoted water companies. Update estimates for lower inflation and deferred price increases. We have updated our earnings forecasts to take account of: lower UK inflation and the deferral of allowed price increases in 2014/15 by Pennon and United Utilities. UU will take this deferral as an exceptional item, so the EPS impact is minimal. In Pennon's case we have reduced our March 15e EPS by 10%. Reduce SVT price target by 8.6% to 1,535p and downgrade to Underweight. We reduce our SVT price target from 1,680p to 1,535p, which is 10% downside from the current share price and downgrade our recommendation to Underweight. We retain our Overweight recommendation for PNN and our Neutral recommendation for UU, although we have reduced our price targets for both companies by 6.0% and 1.7% respectively to 700p and 735p.

Turnover edged up from £918m to £922m while underlying operating profit at Severn Trent, which has 14.2m customers, rose slightly to £267m. Profits were hit by slightly higher finance charges that rose from £155m to £164m as the company ended the period with net debt of £4.3bn. Underlying profits before tax and exceptional times fell from £150m to £141m. However, the value of financial instruments held by the company swung from a loss of £38m to a profit of £61m, pushing up pre-tax profits from £113m to £191m for the six months. SVT confirmed a 6 per cent rise in its interim dividend to 32.16p, in line with its policy of increasing its payout by 3 per cent above of the rate of inflation. Severn Trent raised prices by 2 per cent – below the rate of inflation – during the six-month interim period to September 30. It is also due to impose average price increases below the retail price index, as measured in November, from next April under the terms of its current five-year settlement with Ofwat. 26 Nov 2013 Severn Trent PLC SVT RBC Capital Markets Underperform 1,758.00 1,785.00 1,580.00 1,580.00 26 Nov 2013 Pennon Group PLC PNN RBC Capital Markets Sector Performer 633.25 636.50 650.00 650.00
