SJW Corp. (NYSE:SJW) today announced that San Jose Water Company, its wholly owned subsidiary, along with three other California water utilities (the "Joint Parties") received a letter dated February 1, 2016 from the Executive Director of the California Public Utilities Commission ("CPUC") granting the Joint Parties' request to postpone their scheduled Cost of Capital ("COC") filings to March 31, 2017.

The Joint Parties had filed, on December 11, 2015, a request for a one-year postponement of their COC filings scheduled for March 31, 2016. Pursuant to the CPUC's rate case plan, the Joint Parties were required to file their COC applications on a triennial basis with the next filing to take place by March 31, 2016. Postponing the filing for one year alleviates administrative processing costs on the Joint Parties as well as the CPUC staff.
