The company said it would appoint Ian Marchant as executive chairman while it looked for a new CEO. "It was felt this was the right time for new leadership to take on the operational and delivery challenges for the next regulatory period (2020-25)," a spokesman for Thames Water said in an emailed statement. Robertson, who was appointed in September 2016, was previously chief executive at telecoms services companies Truphone and BT Openreach.
United Utilities said it would pay a total dividend of 41.28 pence, an increase of 3.9%. Rival Severn Trent said this week that a re-nationalisation of the UK water industry could raise customer bills and lower investment. Labour says that water bills have risen 40% in real terms since privatisation in 1989, while water companies receive more in tax credits than they pay in tax while paying out large dividends to shareholders.
British utility stocks are trading at a growing discount to euro zone peers as investors fear the country's deepening political crisis could trigger a general election that ushers in renationalisation of the industry, worth $76 billion (£59.9 billion). The opposition Labour Party has said it wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation policies. Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager on the global and international equities team at Schroders said those fears were "another overhang" for utilities, already subject to a discount like other UK assets because of Brexit uncertainty.
Britain's opposition Labour Party wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's ruling Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation public policy. Despite a national election not being due until 2022, the prospect of nationalisation is worrying investors. Analysts have valued the regulated asset values of water and energy networks potentially facing nationalisation at around 125 billion pounds.

The company also forecast higher revenue for the year ending March 31 as utilities in Britain benefit from outcome delivery incentives (ODIs) paid by regulator Ofwat for meeting or exceeding targets including project completions. United Utilities, which supplies water to 3 million homes and 200,000 businesses in the north-west of England, said trading was in line with its expectations for the year ending in March 31. United Utilities warned in November that an extreme period of hot and dry weather during the summer had caused significant strain on its water resources and network, with reservoir levels running "extremely low".

The FTSE 100 added 0.4 percent after earlier hitting its highest level in nearly three weeks, while the midcap index handed back earlier gains to close 0.6 percent lower. A positive tone was initially set with Asian shares bouncing to a four-month high after the Federal Reserve pledged it will be patient with further interest rate hikes, signalling a potential end to its tightening cycle amid signs of slowing global growth. On the other hand, uncertainties mounted for Britain with the European Union's chief Brexit negotiator saying that time was too short to find an alternative to the Irish border arrangement agreed in their divorce deal, as London wants.

The water utility expects to invest an additional 80 million pounds during the current financial year to safeguard continuity of supplies to customers and protect its water resources after Britain's spell of extreme hot and dry weather. "We anticipate the operating costs associated with the exceptional dry weather period to be an adjusted item and therefore underlying operating profit for the first half of 2018/19 is expected to be higher," the utility said in a statement. Earlier this month, United Utilities and other top British water companies unveiled business plans to reduce leakages by 15 percent in 2020-2025 and improve service while controlling prices after their performance was questioned during the country's hottest summer in decades.
