One of the framework contracts, in which Interserve has been included is worth 750 million pounds and involves construction and refurbishment works for Yorkshire Water's operational treatment area. Interserve Plc, one of the British government's biggest contractors, was taken over by its lenders early in the year as shareholders rejected a rescue plan for the company.

Europe suffered a fourth day of losses as persistent worries about the pace of global growth and Brexit uncertainty took their toll on shares in the region. The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed 0.45 percent lower and is now nearly 3 percent lower than the six-month peak reached on March 19. European stocks pulled back from an initial 0.8 percent fall after an unexpected rise in German business sentiment that eased fears of a recession in the European Union's largest economy.
The FTSE 100 fell 0.4 percent and the domestically-focussed FTSE 250 shed 1.1 percent to hit its lowest since Feb. 12. Last week's cautious remarks from the U.S. Federal Reserve and weak manufacturing data from Germany and the United States once again raised concerns about the world economy, making stocks, generally considered riskier assets, less appealing.
The FTSE 100 was up 0.3 percent. The domestically-focused FTSE 250 was up 0.3 percent as investors waited for further Brexit developments with reports that Prime Minister Theresa May would ask the European Union to delay Brexit by at least three months. May's Brexit plans were derailed after the speaker of Britain's parliament said on Monday that her deal could not be voted on again after two thumping defeats unless a different proposal was submitted.
Aberdeen-based Wood said on Tuesday it had secured contracts worth over $600 million (452.05 million pounds) following the Amec Foster deal, winning business as a combined group that neither company would have been able to do on a standalone basis. The FTSE-250 company, which provides engineering, project and technical services to industrial, energy, process and utility markets, said its annual results had benefited from favourable conditions in energy and industrial end markets. Its order book stood at $10.3 billion, and Wood said that about 60 percent of its revenue target for the current year was secured.

Postal company Royal Mail (RMG.L) is set to lose its place in the FTSE 100 (.FTSE), while insurer Hiscox (HSX.L) is likely to join Britain's top stock index in a reshuffle next week, analysts said. Demotion from the blue-chip index would come just as Royal Mail heads into its busiest time of year, as Britons send millions of greeting cards to family and friends in the run-up to Christmas. The possible swap comes after Royal Mail unveiled a broad review of its operations as it battles to cut costs after reporting a 25 percent drop in half-year profit.
