Subject Report -ws-atkins approach by CHM2 re merger 
Votes for this Posting Voted UP 1 time.
Explains a 5% jump in SP, all sounds a bit preliminary


WS Atkins Plc (ATKW.L), a British engineering and design consultancy, has been approached by U.S. company CH2M for a possible $4 billion merger, the Times reported.

CH2M made the approach for Atkins at a senior level, although it is unclear how far talks developed, the newspaper reported.

Atkins said last year that plans by both the UK government and new U.S. President Donald Trump to increase infrastructure spending would benefit the company in the medium term.

"It is our policy not to comment on rumor and speculation," Atkins said in response to an inquiry by Reuters, while CH2M was not immediately available for comment.
