Repurchase of shares in AMEC plc


On 21 February 2012, AMEC plc (the "Company") announced that it intended to complete a £400 million share buyback programme within the next twelve months.


Further to the announcement on 17 August 2012 of its irrevocable, non-discretionary share repurchase programme with Barclays Capital Securities Limited, the Company announces that under the terms of that programme it has today purchased for cancellation 50,000 ordinary shares of the Company at a price of 1159.432 pence per share.  This purchase equates to approximately 0.02 per cent of AMEC's current issued share capital excluding Treasury shares prior to this purchase.


The company also notifies that 333 shares held in Treasury were today transferred to share scheme participants.


Following this change AMEC's total issued share capital is 317,803,250 ordinary shares, of which 6,349,500 are registered as Treasury Shares, leaving a balance of 311,453,750 shares with voting rights.
