Grupo GuitarLumber.

I would agree except that Water Intelligence has dropped more than many.
I suspect that it is also because of the bad press that the UK water and sewage industry is getting this week. Ironic really, because the water industry's problems should mean more business for Water Intelligence.

I topped up today

Why the drop?
12:37 is more interest & more investment (a lot) in the water sector in the UK

(& in the USA they are investing big bucks of Govt money in the water sector)

which can surely only be good for WATR, whether directly or indirectly

How does this impact water intelligence or brings a positive impact?

Working for the water industry, Ofwat will be auditing this initially, which will then be followed by instructions to the water companies on tighter water checks and final effluent discharge to the water stream, so they can see where excessive rainfall has forced sewage works to not process raw sewage and send back to the water course.

They will probably slap tighter controls on the water companies to ensure this only happens say X times a year

Water regulator launches major investigation into sewage treatment works

Press Association

Isobel Frodsham, PA

18 November 2021, 5:34 am

Water companies are facing a major investigation after checks revealed some firms may be releasing unpermitted sewage into rivers and watercourses.

The probe, by the Environment Agency (EA) and water regulator Ofwat, will involve more than 2,000 sewage treatment works, and any company caught breaching its permits could be handed fines or prosecuted.

The investigation was launched after the two bodies said several water companies admitted many of their sewage treatment works may not be compliant.

The names or amount of companies who may not have been compliant have not been revealed.

It comes after the EA and Ofwat have been encouraging companies to improve their day-to-day performance and meet progressively higher standards to protect the environment.

As part of this, the EA has been checking that water companies comply with requirements and has asked them to fit new monitors at sewage treatment works.

This is to make sure the right levels of wastewater are being treated before overflows are allowed to enter the environment.

The EA and Ofwat are now analysing all water and sewerage companies to assess the scale of the problem.

Dr Richard Benwell, chief executive of the coalition of conservation groups Wildlife and Countryside Link, said the crackdown was welcome.

The EA and Ofwat said some firms may be releasing unpermitted sewage discharges into rivers and watercourses

He added: “For too long poor monitoring of sewage overflow permits has been a ‘get out of jail free’ card for some water companies to pollute with impunity. Under-reporting, inaction, and failure to comply with statutory duties to reduce harm to our rivers and wildlife are unacceptable, and incompatible with stopping nature’s decline by 2030.

“We need Government to ensure our underfunded water watchdogs have a full armoury of financial and legal options available to ensure that corporate environmental crime does not go unpunished.”

Emma Howard Boyd, chairwoman of the Environment Agency, said: “Any water companies in breach of their permits are acting illegally. This is a major issue of public trust.

“Water company boards must certify every year that they have adequate resources to fulfil their regulated activities. Only now, just before new monitors are installed, have companies reported concerns over potential problems.”

She added she would like to see the levels of penalties for corporate environmental crime to increase and more attention should be given to directors of companies that are “guilty of repeated, deliberate or reckless breaches of environmental law”.

Jonson Cox, chairman of Ofwat, said: “Customers pay water companies to treat wastewater and protect and enhance rivers and wildlife. The public will be extremely disappointed if these reports are confirmed. Ofwat takes any reports of water companies breaking the law very seriously.”

Environment minister Rebecca Pow said the news was “shocking and wholly unacceptable”.

She added: “I have made my expectations of water companies and their legal duties crystal clear. Water companies must take urgent and immediate steps to abide by their legal duties. I will also be remaining in close contact with the regulators about any fines, prosecutions or other enforcement action that is deemed necessary.”

the exercise of 25k share options & subsequent sale in the placing replaced by issuing 25k new shares & placed & the money paid to the option holder & the options cancelled

(not sure the tax man will/would agree if he ever found out)

I assume this was done to give tax benefits to the share buyer, by buying new shares issued directly to them they get various tax benefits whereas buying existing shares from the option person would not give the same tax benefits since only given to the first new holder of the new shares.

imo the price to buy is about to pop up to 1270p or 1280p

- that is already the real price to sell
- buys are at 1301 & 1308p, right next to the official price to buy, while there is a 20-30p between official selling price & the actual selling price


illiquid trading

cap. value over £200 million yet the value of shares traded per day is perhaps just £30-50k. a tiny % of the shares.

ah....options exercised & sold by a franchisee

thanks for the info Metis20

"The Company has also received notice that a franchisee has exercised options over 25,000 new ordinary shares of 1 pence each ("Option Shares"). The Option Shares are also expected to be admitted to trading at 8.00 a.m. on or around 17 November 2021. The Option Shares will be sold alongside the Placing Shares."

the 25k shares sold by an employee were not sold by Souza ??



sold by a franchisee not by Souza

'up, up & away
in my beautiful balloon'



Thanks, metis20.

Pat de Souza has always cashed in some of his partly paid shares in previous fund-raisings. It is interesting that he has decided not to on this occasion.

effortless cool
£12.5m raised.

The directors have not sold any. (From this morning's RNS:-
"Should the level of demand through the Bookbuild be significantly greater than the £10 million target, certain Directors and/or senior management of the Company may be prepared to sell a limited number of ordinary shares to help meet such demand.")


According to my projections, WATR will actually generate very little cash during 2022, even on my above consensus revenue projections, mainly due to deferred payments on previous franchise reacquisitions. By raising more cash now, they can continue to finance a high rate of earnings positive acquisitions.

Further, the fact that they have made a placing with institutions at a discount of just 4% should, in my opinion, inspire confidence.

effortless cool
Very good to see that the last placing (July 2021) was at 920p whereas this one is at 1200p.

From the Q3 trading update

"The Group continues to perform strongly and by the end of Q3, has surpassed full year 2020 results for revenue, profits and EBITDA. Profit for full year 2021 is now expected to be at the upper end of consensus analyst estimates."

In the half year to June 2021 Reacquisition of Franchises was £4.8m.

Should be making enough cash to finance these small deals. Placing does not inspire confidence.
Strong market response to 1200p placing price so far….
Market seems to believe that buying franchises is accretive at this price.
