Shares for UK firm are removed from stock exchange as £223m deal is finalised

Scott Wilson has been delisted from the stock market following the completion of its sale to American engineering giant URS.

Shares in the British firm were suspended on Wednesday and were removed from the official list this morning.

URS acquired Scott Wilson for a bumper price of £223m in early July after a bidding war with rival US consultant CH2M Hill. Share prices in the British firm jumped 233% as the American companies escalated their offers.
