Modern Water announces re-structuring



6 August 2019




Modern Water, the owner of world-leading technologies for water and wastewater treatment and for water quality monitoring, announces that it intends to restructure its group of companies with the aim of focusing on its innovative membranes process technologies.


The Company is in advanced negotiations to sell the assets of Modern Water Inc., the Company's US-based monitoring division. The boards of Modern Water Services Limited and Cogent Environmental Ltd have decided to appoint liquidators.


In keeping with the new strategy of focusing on its core innovative membrane process technologies, Modern Water has decided to retain control of Surrey Aquatechnology Limited, a subsidiary which holds most of the Group's patents.


Simon Humphrey, Modern Water's CEO, said: "We are working on overcoming our liquidity problems in order to retain a restructured business that can service our customers with world-leading innovative technologies."


A further update will be issued as soon as there are any material developments.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
