Earlier this week Ferrovial confirmed that it has engaged a consultant to examine the possibility of selling its services division, which includes Amey in the UK. The Financial Times has reported that the consultant is Goldman Sachs. And with a number of global firms recently snapping up UK assets, international consultants and contractors are again emerging as early front-runners to acquire Amey, should Ferrovial follow through on the sale.
Japanese engineering giant Nippon Koei is likely to be among those looking at Amey after missing out on Hyder in to Arcadis.Unscientifically run Jammu slaughterhouse a den of diseases, problems
Arcadis themselves could of course swoop again for Amey. Another potential buyer could see Singapore firm Surbana Jurong enter the fray. Last year, the Singaporean outfit swooped for Australian consultant Robert Bird group and according to industry sources, the Asian consultancy is on an expansion drive, including buying specialist firms. The likes of Arcadis, Jacobs, Aecom and SNC Lavalin will also be keeping a close eye on the future of Amey, however industry sources suggest that they will be unlikely to want to take on the PFI contracts tied to Amey.
It has been a mixed couple of years for Amey. Following complaints from residents over pot-holes, the local authority and Amey became embroiled in a lengthy a legal dispute about the quality of works carried out so far under the year maintenance and management service.

Two separate owners of the PFI deal, one based in the tax haven of Guernsey, remain in place. Goldman Sachs, the international banker and deal-maker that Ferrovial has engaged to sell its assets, declined to comment on Monday, while the two private equity firms, one British and one French, which both The Financial Times and The Times have recently reported as the likely buyers of Amey PLC, told Green World in interviews last week that they had not purchased Amey VAHL.
But PFI and investment experts we interviewed suggested that other private equity firms across the world were probable purchasers. The main asset of a PFI-based firm is that its revenues are guaranteed by Westminster for the life of the contract, which is often 25 years.
One is based in the tax haven of Guernsey and did not return our phone calls. Last year, Manchester bought out a failing waste management PFI in its region. In Birmingham, the parent company is in administration. Rather curiously, the Amey press office also refused to even release the name of the branch of its own company that is temporarily doing the road work and other construction, road gritting, street cleaning and rehab work for SCC.
The PFI project is at least a year behind schedule. Amey PLC no longer has an ownership interest that is, a shareholder vote in the PFI deal; it is now a merely a contractor working for the two other longer-term owners, as well as the new, still undisclosed, owner of Amey VAHL. As things stand now, Sheffield residents will be paying for the PFI scheme until the year PFI contracts allow private, profit-making companies to take over, control and manage buildings and services usually operated by local councils, the NHS or Westminster.
PFI schemes are now so discredited, indeed downright toxic, that not even the Tories will establish another one, Chancellor Philip Hammond announced in November Whether Labour-controlled SCC has the competency to manage this complex and mostly secret PFI contract is an issue that may arise in the campaign for the 2 May local elections.
Other short- and long-term implications of the recent sale remain uncertain.
Infrastructure woes lead to Amey being advertised for sale
As a result of a very effective non-violent direct action campaign — chiefly, standing under threatened street trees — the wrongful arrest of many tree campaigners and widespread political campaigning, Amey and SCC were forced to halt the felling of street trees in Sheffield in the middle of March New fellings of healthy street trees would likely be a catalyst for fresh street protests.
