In line with this, and noting recent media speculation, SSE plc can confirm it is in discussions with Ovo Group over the possible sale of the SSE Energy Services business, which supplies energy and related services to around 5.7 million household customers across Great Britain.

These discussions are continuing, however no final decisions have been taken and no agreements regarding the terms of any transaction have been entered into.

The Board remains focused on securing the best long-term future for the business, its customers and employees, and for shareholders.

SSE will provide no further comment on the discussions until a conclusion to them has been reached.
