Trading Update for the period 1 October to 31 December 2015


Severn Trent, one of the leading water and waste water companies in the UK, today announces trading for the 9 months to 31 December 2015.


Guidance for the net reward from ODIs for this financial year is increased to £15million.  Other than that, Severn Trent confirms that it continues to perform in line with expectations and there has been no material change to the technical guidance for the full year.


Liv Garfield, Chief Executive, said:  "Our customers are at the heart of all we do and we continue to invest in operational improvements to build a better business for our customers, colleagues and shareholders.  I am delighted to see all this hard work is translating into a net ODI benefit, at this stage, of £15million for the full year.  Having locked in the savings set out in our Final Determination we are working hard to identify further efficiencies, while continuously improving our services, and will provide a further update with our results in May.  There remains much to do, but this year is shaping up to be a great start to the current regulatory period."


Severn Trent Plc will announce its Preliminary Results for the period ending 31 March 2016 on 24 May 2016.
