The Company‘s strong points include:
Consistent cash generation and solid financial position
Significant percentage of revenue derived from long-term contracts
Virtually all revenue from water supply and sewage services is based on long-term formal instruments, i.e., concession contracts and program agreements.
Availability of water resources
Unlike other sewage companies in Brazil, COPASA holds formal water use permissions for most of its sources, including for all of its main water resources. COPASA also owns or holds use rights for almost all properties on which these water sources are located, which allows it to preserve the quality of most of its water sources, thereby preventing illegal occupation of the property and deforestation of the surrounding areas.
Technical and operational excellence
The business infrastructure is supported by a complex organizational structure that enjoys high standards of excellence in terms of operational and technical performance.
Recognized service quality
Based on the technical survey conducted, COPASA maintains the highest quality standards for the provision of its services, which assures high levels of customer satisfaction. We believe this recognized service excellence enables the Company to maintain its client portfolio and solid relationship with government authorities and to expand its business.
Diversified and disperse client base with low delinquency
