Further to the announcement made by Affinity Water Limited (the "Company") dated 7 December 2018, and further to amendments described in a proposal dated 15 November 2018 (the "STID Proposal"), the Company announces today that the following conditions have been satisfied:

(c)        opinions from Hogan Lovells International LLP as to (i) matters of capacity and the enforceability of the Master Implementation Deed and (ii) certain taxation matters in relation to the proposed substitution;

(d)       confirmation from each of the rating agencies that the Substitution will not result in a downgrading of the then current credit ratings of such rating agency applicable to the Bonds (or where a rating agency is not willing to provide such confirmation due to its prevailing policy, a certificate from the Company certifying that, in its opinion, having consulted with such rating agency, the Substitution would not result in a downgrading of the then current credit ratings of such rating agency applicable to the Bonds); and

(e)       the other conditions set out in paragraph 7 of the STID Proposal,

(the "Amendment Conditions").

Following satisfaction of the Amendment Conditions, Affinity Water Programme Finance Limited (the "Previous Programme Issuer") has been substituted with the Substitute Programme Issuer, a public limited company incorporated in England and Wales, as the issuer of the Bonds and as a guarantor for the Existing Issuer Bonds.

Additionally, the Substitute Programme Issuer has replaced the Previous Programme Issuer as the issuer of its privately placed notes and for all other purposes as Programme Issuer under the Transaction Documents. Accordingly, the Previous Programme Issuer has been removed from the Financing Group.
