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.

European shares clawed back losses on Friday, buoyed by a bounce on Wall Street as a turbulent week drew to a close and investors licked their wounds after the region's benchmark STOXX 600 sank to its lowest level since U.S. President Donald Trump's election. The STOXX 600 (.STOXX) ended the day up 1.9 percent, its biggest daily performance since last April.

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.

The results bode well for a refocusing on core business after a difficult period marred by investments in production that fell afoul of the 2014 collapse in oil prices. The company's main measure of profit rose to $190 million (147.39 million pounds) compared to $158 million a year earlier, excluding a $207 million charge for losses on oil asset sales and helped by some of its remaining upstream businesses swinging into the black. Chief Financial Officer Alastair Cochran told Reuters that Petrofac would continue on a course that has seen it agree sales of $800 million in mostly oil-producing assets this year.
Shares in Aberdeen-based Wood rose 5 percent, initially topping gainers on the midcap FTSE 250 (.FTMC), after it also raised its prediction of cost-savings from its takeover of smaller rival Amec Foster last October.

The changed landscape comes as a relief for service providers after a slump in crude prices that forced producers to cut spending and defer or cancel contracts. "We do feel like we are coming out of that (oil and gas) down cycle," Wood Chief Financial Officer David Kemp said. Aberdeen-based Wood Plc's market comments echo those of smaller rivals Petrofac Ltd (PFC.L) and Hunting Plc (HTG.L).
