5 Background on TCTA TCTA is a Special Purpose Vehicle
Responds to directives/mandates from the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs to fund and implement bulk raw water infrastructure on behalf of DWA Board is appointed by Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs Established under the Water Act Schedule 2 Public Entity w.r.t. PFMA Limited recourse approach No balance sheet Break-even of revenue to costs over a specified period Fully debt funded – no equity Ring-fenced projects – tariffs related to a specific project – no cross-application of revenue Non profit-taking organisation Recover actual costs – overhead and capex, no profit/loss or reserves Risk averse approach – risk is transferred to parties best suited to manage it Revenue stream terminates once debt is repaid on a project Tariffs are TCTA’s main source of revenue

6 Water Supply Value Chain
National Raw Water Resource Infrastructure DWA TCTA Water Boards Distribution of water Municipality End User Treat raw water to potable level 6 6

7 TCTA funding and implementation model
Water Delivery Payment of Tariffs TCTA Fund and implement infrastructure Collection of Income Undertake to honour obligations of TCTA Implementation agreement DWA Supply bulk raw water to users Operate & maintain infrastructure Payment for water including CUC due to TCTA Water supply agreement Users 7

10 Stakeholders & tariff principles

11 Interested and affected stakeholders
TCTA Tariffs will generate sufficient revenue streams to meet contractual obligations and sustain TCTA Correct tariff set so as not to misinform stakeholders Banks and bondholders Repayment of loan obligations within contract terms SARB Support inflation targeting National Treasury Protection of sovereign against unnecessary risk - Bankable project Relieve government from financing commercial infrastructure from the fiscus Ensure affordability of tariffs to users Responsible utilisation of state guarantees DWA Inflationary increases in raw water as start of water chain input cost Affordability and predictability to end-users Uncomplicated annual tariff consultations – inflationary increases Water demand management incentive (pay on actual use) No cross subsidisation between projects – transparency of costs Compliance with Water Pricing Strategy

12 Interested and affected stakeholders
SALGA Inflationary increases Fair tariff structures Municipalities Limited to inflationary increases, including raw water components DWA expects TCTA to support this objective Municipality and Council pressure to keep increases low Water sector and end users Tariff stability and predictability Affordable water Inflationary increases acceptable No cross subsidisation between projects – transparency of costs Fitch Ratings Credit rating of all TCTA projects except LHWP

13 Tariff Principles Tariff categories for off-budget schemes:
Capital Unit Charges (to repay debt) Bulk Operating and Royalties Charge (to repay royalties and bulk O&M) Water Use Charges (statutory charges as per pricing strategy) Operations and Maintenance Charges (State schemes portion) Betterment and Refurbishment Charges (if applicable) Input data supplied to TCTA as follows: BER: long-term economic forecasts (inflation, real interest rates) DWA: water demand forecasts (high and low scenarios) system yields future schemes timing and projected costs 13

14 Tariff Principles (cont.…)
TCTA recovers the following tariffs: Raw water tariff as capital unit charge to repay debt Bulk Operating and Royalties charge to cover royalties and bulk O&M Full cost recovery from water sold to end-users or take-or-pay where required Based on water sold out of system and not on water delivered into the system from the specific project supports water demand management initiatives reduces demand risk Constant tariff in real terms which increases with: CPI annually Triggers as per the Income Agreement Repayment of debt within reasonable period (eg 20 years) Affordable structure to the end-user Tariff setting takes account of tariff, funding and risk management principles in combined approach

15 Other considerations National Water Pricing Strategy
Administered prices – inflation targeting Stakeholder consultation outcomes Affordability to end-users phasing-in of large adjustments allowance for capitalisation of interest in early years

16 Tariff Setting Balancing Effect
End user affordability Debt outstanding Considerations to support end user affordability: Under recovering in early years End-user pays on actual use if bankable Constant tariff in real terms approach – CPI targeting Phasing-in of large tariff adjustments over 2-3 years Take account of future augmentation – future affordability No reserves built into tariffs Actual cost transfer – TCTA not profit taking Considerations to support debt management: +20 year repayment period Peak of debt in relation to value of asset (limit interest capitalisation) Risk transfer to end-user – trigger adjustments if input assumptions change Water sector debt profile – debt overlap with future schemes Interest rates mostly fixed Utilisation of explicit Government guarantees and impact on National Treasury 16

17 Tariff Setting Process – May to August
Input data Demand, system yield, economic fundamentals, cost and timing of future augmentation schemes Long-term projections DWA compiles long-term demand projections based on coordinated approach with DWA – various departments involved, Water Boards’ Planning and Budgeting departments, Large industrial users, Muni’s etc. Sensitivity Analysis Inflation, real interest rate, timing of future augmentation schemes and repayment periods Stress Testing Lower inflation, changes in yield of system, higher real interest rate, zero growth in demand etc Stakeholder validation Demand projections, system yield, economic fundamentals, cost and timing of future augmentation schemes Consultation with National Treasury and SARB On administered prices Consultation with DWA management structure Rand Water Services Forum Other Major stakeholder forums Planning process Sensitivity Analysis & Stress Testing Consultation Participation
