NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Wall Street Transcript (TWST) continues to produce its successful series of Water Conferences with the launch Nov. 15 of its conference on "Maximizing Returns on Invested Capital in the Water Industry."

This unique conference will delve into issues relating to boosting allowed regulatory returns such as single tariff pricing, incentive based pricing and structured competition. The conference will provide insight into achieving the optimum capital structure and provide pointers on lining up the appropriate sources of capital. Further, this conference will provide insight into 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. (This report will sell for $175, but is free to conference participants.)

TWST's most recent Water Industry conference was held in New York City 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. This June 2004 conference attracted some 150 attendees.

Limited seating and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Further information is available at www.twst.com/conferences or by contacting Jim Meyer at jhmeyer@twst.com or 212-952-7400.
