Yü Group PLC
("Yü Group" or the "Group")


Licence granted to supply water market


Yü Group PLC (AIM: YU.), the independent supplier of gas and electricity to the UK corporate sector, announces that it has been granted a licence by regulator Ofwat to enter the retail and commercial water market. The Company intends to supply water services for the business sector only and will trade under the Company's newly formed subsidiary, Yü Water Limited ("Yü Water").


Yü Group decided to launch Yü Water following the de-regulation of the water retail market in April this year, the largest market of its kind in the world. The licence will allow Yü Water to buy wholesale water services and offer these services together with its energy services to develop bespoke packages to suit the individual business needs of its customers.


Commenting on the news, Ofwat senior director Emma Kelso said: "It's good news to see suppliers bring different areas of expertise to the water market - with Yü Water bringing theirs from a background in energy."


Bobby Kalar, Chief Executive of Yü Group, said: "The addition of the water utility services to our product portfolio builds on our experience in the energy market for corporate customers and our ability to deliver these utilities with best-in-class customer service. Our focus remains on our core offering in the provision of energy, however this enables us to offer a bespoke, value-added service to our customers who seek the flexibility of a one-stop-shop for their utility needs. We see long term opportunities for the Company in the water industry."
