Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/13/2017, Location: Europe

Commenting on todayís announcement, Ian Marchant, the Chairman of Wood Group said: "The Combination represents a transformational transaction for Wood Group, which accelerates our strategy and creates a global leader in project, engineering and technical services delivery across a range of industrial sectors.

The Combination extends the scale and scope of our services, deepens our existing customer relationships, facilitates further development of our technology-enabled solutions and broadens our end market, geographic and customer exposure.

The Combination will create an asset-light, largely reimbursable business of greater scale and enhanced capability, diversified across the oil & gas, chemicals, renewables, environment & infrastructure and mining segments.

By leveraging Amec Foster Wheelerís and Wood Groupís combined asset life cycle services across project delivery, engineering, modifications, construction, operations, maintenance and consulting activities, the Combined Group will be able to better capitalise on growth opportunities across a broad cross section of energy and industrial end markets.

Delivering significant sustainable synergies will also result in a leaner and more competitive Combined Group, creating value for shareholders.

Amec Foster Wheelerís shareholders will become shareholders in the Combined Group, thereby gaining from the enhanced operating capabilities, and benefiting from a share of the synergies, a stronger balance sheet and Wood Groupís progressive dividend policy.

The Wood Group Board is confident that the Combination will build on the individual platforms of Wood Group and Amec Foster Wheeler to the benefit and advantage of customers, employees and other stakeholders.

The Combination has been unanimously recommended by the boards of Wood Group and Amec Foster Wheeler, and the Wood Group team looks forward to working with the Amec Foster Wheeler team to further develop the Combined Group over the longer term.Ē
