LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. -- April 9, 2013

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI) announced today that Aguas de Valencia, a private
water utility serving more than 3.5 million residents mainly in Valencia,
Catalonia, Aragón and Northern Spain, will begin full deployment of Itron’s
water AMI solution, including 100,000 water meters, 100,000 communication
modules, fixed network infrastructure and software, which will be installed
over the next five years. The utility has successfully completed a
5,000-endpoint pilot of Itron’s advanced metering infrastructure (AMI)
solution which led to their decision to move forward with Itron for a full
deployment.

Itron’s AMI solution has helped Aguas de Valencia modernize its metering
infrastructure and create higher levels of service. With the ability to
collect and utilize detailed water data, the utility can better analyze its
operations and monitor distribution system integrity to become more efficient
and deliver more value to its customers. Itron’s AMI solution opens the way
for a wide range of applications such as water conservation, customer
relationship management and distribution asset optimization.

“Testing Itron’s AMI solution has given Aguas de Valencia the opportunity to
validate the system’s performance,” said Juan José Pérez Palomar, chief
operating officer, Aguas de Valencia. “We sought an easy-to-manage, highly
efficient solution with a low level of maintenance, and we got that with
Itron’s AMI solution. We look forward to realizing benefits more broadly as we
expand our deployment.”

“Itron’s AMI solution empowers utilities to oversee and manage the delivery
and usage of water more effectively and efficiently than ever before,” said
Pascal Michaudel, Southern & Western Europe sales director for water at Itron.
“Aguas de Valencia has already begun to realize these benefits and will soon
gain greater value with their expanded deployment.”
