(LSE: WYG) are pleased to announce that Tetra Tech has made an
all cash offer to acquire all the outstanding shares of WYG for 55 pence

service areas including planning, water and environment, transport,
infrastructure, the built environment, architecture, urban design,

The acquisition of WYG expands Tetra Tech’s geographic presence and
positions Tetra Tech as a leading global consulting, engineering and
program management firm focused on water, environment and
infrastructure. In addition, the acquisition enhances Tetra Tech’s
business for international development supporting both the European
Union and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.

“WYG advances our strategy to add firms that support our position as the
premier global high-end consulting, engineering, and program management
firm,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “WYG’s expertise
in infrastructure and program management, as well as water and
environmental services, enables us to deliver innovative solutions to
support the UK’s infrastructure needs. Together, we will be able to
provide an expanded scope of services to our customers and offer our
combined staff even greater professional opportunities.”

Jeremy Beeton, WYG Chairman, said, “Becoming part of Tetra Tech brings
the benefits of scale and access to broader expertise across highly
complementary geographies and client relationships. It also brings the
operational infrastructure and financial strength to support WYG’s
long-term ambitions, whilst we provide Tetra Tech with a strong platform
for growth in the UK and Europe. We believe the combination will provide
greater opportunities for our people and our clients as well as offering
certainty of immediate value to our shareholders.”
