MILAN, ITALY, and LONDON, ENGLAND, May 13, 2015 -- Severn Trent Plc -- a subsidiary of Severn Trent Services, a global supplier of water and wastewater solutions -- and Industrie De Nora SpA, a private multinational company with headquarter in Italy, have both reached a definitive agreement for the share sale of Severn's Water Purification business (part of its Business Services organization) to De Nora.

Through its operations in the U.S., Europe and Asia, the Water Purification business is a global player in the water treatment products industry, focused on electrochlorination, disinfection and filtration. It has a strong technology platform and a portfolio of brands and products recognized around the world for their quality and reliability.

Since 2002, Severn Trent and De Nora have been partners in a successful Joint Venture -- "Severn Trent De Nora" -- which specializes in electrochemical processes for water and wastewater treatment for the municipal, onshore and offshore energy and marine sectors. This entity is part of the transaction.

Severn Trent Plc entered into the transaction after it recently reorganized and brought together its remaining non-regulated businesses into a new 'Business Services' division. The sale of the Water Purification business will allow the management team to focus on creating value from its core businesses in water and wastewater services, which involve Operating Services US, Operating Services UK, including non-household retail and renewable energy.
