Conference to Focus on Investing in Water Industry

Oct. 8, 2004

On Nov. 15 in New York, The Wall Street Transcript (TWST) will offer its second water industry conference, "Maximizing Returns on Invested Capital in the Water Industry."

This conference will delve into issues relating to boosting allowed regulatory returns such as single tariff pricing, incentive based pricing and structured competition. It will provide insight into achieving the optimum capital structure and provide pointers on lining up the appropriate sources of capital. Further, this conference will examine how water companies can derive revenues from non-traditional sources.

David Wanetick, managing director of TWST, said, "We are delighted that renowned authorities from General Electric, Southwest Water Company, United Water, the Suffolk County Water Authority, New Jersey Environment Infrastructure Trust, and Badger Meter will share their insight into pressing regulatory and financial issues. The conference is turning into a can't miss event for financial executives working in or working with the water industry."

Gateway Reports, an affiliate of TWST, will also release its report on the State of the Water Industry at the conference. This report will provide thoroughly researched insights into trends in building out the water infrastructure, desalinization, purification technologies as well as developments in bottled water. (The report will sell for $175, but is free to conference participants.)

TWST's most recent water industry conference was held in New York City in June and featured the CEOs and CFOs of most of the publicly-traded water companies in the U.S. as well as the senior most executives from the water industry trade associations. The June conference attracted about 150 attendees.

Limited seating and sponsorship opportunities are still available.
