Financial year 2019 in review

A detailed look at our performance during the financial year from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.

Our capital delivery strategy during the next Asset Management Plan


One of the things we’re going to focus on over the next AMP, which runs from 2020 to 2025, is our capital delivery strategy, and how we work sustainably with our suppliers.

We’re committed to leading and collaborating with our supply chain to ensure we mitigate risk and create additional value for our shareholders, society and the environment.




Social purpose


We’re a business with a social purpose and we have made commitments to our customers, colleagues, investors and wider society.

We also pledged to become the first purposeful company in the utilities sector.

Cumulative Return on Regulated Equity (RoRE) from AMP6



Key points from our cumulative RoRE

  • Upper quartile RoRE performance across all levers during AMP6.
  • Cost of finance lowered to 3.7% in the 2019 financial year from 5.4% at the beginning of the AMP.
  • £870m of totex outperformance, of which we’ve reinvested £220m in improving our assets and performance in our water business.
  • Our ODI rewards have totalled £115m in AMP6, which is 40% of all outperformance earned by the industry up to 31 March 2019. In year four of the AMP, we hit the waste water ODI cap, limiting the rewards we could earn in that year. The cap was increased for the year ending 31 March 2020.
