6.3 billion(2)

- Management team for four business units confirmed

Amec Foster Wheeler plc today announces the creation of a new force in global

engineering, project delivery, asset support, power equipment and consultancy

following the completion of the Pound 5bn combination of AMEC plc and Foster

Wheeler AG.

The new company, Amec Foster Wheeler, has a highly skilled workforce of over

40,000 in more than 50 countries, 2013 annualised scope revenues of Pound 5.5

billion(1) and a Pound 6.3bn order book(2). The combined company would have

generated pro-forma trading profits of Pound 521 million in 2013.

Amec Foster Wheeler designs, delivers and maintains strategic and complex

infrastructure assets across a range of markets. It has a strong presence

across the onshore and offshore oil and gas value chain - from production,

through processing, gas monetisation, midstream, oil refining and chemicals.  

Amec Foster Wheeler is also a major player in the mining, clean energy, power

generation, environment and infrastructure markets, using its increased scale

to widen and deepen customer relationships. In addition, Amec Foster Wheeler is

a leading designer, fabricator and supplier of advanced boiler systems for the

power generation and industrial markets.

The combination strengthens its already considerable positions in North America

and Europe and further enhances its established presence in growth markets of

the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. Amec Foster Wheeler has more

entrenched market presence and penetration prospects and will also enjoy a

broader spread of customers among both independent oil majors and the world's

national oil companies.

Based on 2013 pro-forma numbers, 56% of its revenues came from oil and gas, 19%

came from clean energy, 9% from environment and infrastructure, 8% from the

Global Power division and 8% from mining.

The engineering and project delivery operations will be managed through three

geographic business units: Americas; Northern Europe & Commonwealth of

Independent States; Africa, Middle East, Asia & Southern Europe. The Global

Power Group, the power equipment business, will operate across all geographies.

These four business units will be supported by a global strategy and business

development function - focused on the development of market and regional

strategies, customer relationship management and business acquisition, and a

project delivery function - to assure and drive project excellence and leverage

Amec Foster Wheeler's global talent and experience. High Value Execution

Centres and Centres of Expertise will support this activity.

The 10-strong Leadership Team is completed by:

- Ian McHoul  (Chief Financial Officer);

- Jeff Reilly (Group President of Strategy & Business Development);

- Jon Nield (Group Project Delivery Director);

- Will Serle (Group Human Resources Director); and

- Alison Yapp (General Counsel and Company Secretary).

Samir Brikho, Chief Executive of Amec Foster Wheeler, said: "In creating our

new company we are building on the proud heritage, skills and customer

relationships of two already successful and highly respected businesses. Amec

Foster Wheeler operates in more than 50 countries worldwide, in strong end

markets and throughout the value chain. With our strong management team and

talented workforce, we will not only serve our customers better, but can also

offer our highly skilled employees even better career opportunities. I am proud

to be leading the combined business into a new phase of growth."

Amec Foster Wheeler's American Depositary Shares will begin trading on the New

York Stock Exchange today on a 'when issued' basis under the ticker AMFW. The

company's ordinary shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange and its

ticker will change from AMEC to AMFW at the UK market open tomorrow, Friday 14
