United Utilities Group plc Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year Ended March 31, 2015

For the year, the company reported underlying operating profit of £664.3 million compared with £634.6 million for the same period last year. Underlying profit before taxation was £447.4 million compared with £388.1 million for the same period last year. Underlying profit after taxation was £354.1 million or 51.9 pence earnings per share compared with £304.9 million or 44.7 pence earnings per share for the same period last year. Revenue was £1,720.2 million compared with £1,688.8 million for the same period last year. Operating profit was £653.3 million compared with £630.2 million for the same period last year. Profit before taxation was £341.6 million compared with £543.3 million for the same period last year. Profit after taxation was £271.2 million compared with £739.4 million for the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were 39.7 pence against 108.2 pence a year ago. Net cash generated from operating activities from continuing operations £706.5 million compared with £797.2 million for the same period last year. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was £665.7 million compared with £661.7 million for the same period last year. Purchase of other intangible assets was £63.4 million compared with £39.4 million for the same period last year. Underlying operating profit increased by £30 million to £664 million, as continue to tightly manage cost base, despite the expected increase in depreciation and other cost pressures, including bad debt. There was also a planned reduction in infrastructure renewals expenditure in the year, as completed the five-year regulatory period. Net debt including derivatives at 30 March 2015 was £5,924 million, compared with £5,516 million at 31 March 2014.  This increase reflects expenditure on the regulatory capital expenditure programmes and payments of dividends, interest and tax, alongside fair value losses on the group's debt and derivative instruments, partly offset by operating cash flows. This reduction mainly reflects the receipt of the aforementioned exceptional tax refund in 2013/14.  The group's net capital expenditure was £709 million, principally in the regulated water and wastewater investment programmes. This excludes infrastructure renewals expenditure which is treated as an operating cost under IFRS.

United Utilities Group PLC Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year of 2015

United Utilities Group PLC provided earnings guidance for the fiscal year of 2015. For the year, revenue is expected to be slightly higher than last year, reflecting the regulated price allowance for 2014/15 partly offset by the impact of the previously announced one-off special customer discount of around £20 million. The company expects an increase in underlying operating profit for 2014/15, compared with last year, as the company continues to tightly manage cost base despite the expected increase in depreciation and other cost pressures, including bad debts. The company expects an increase in group net debt at March 31, 2015 compared with the position at September 30, 2014.
