shares of 50p each at 1068.04 pence per share through Deutsche Bank AG, all of
which are to be  cancelled. This purchase equates  to approximately 0.05  per

this purchase.

purchase price paid was 1052.00 pence per share.

Following this  change  AMEC's  total  issued  share  capital  is  314,677,449

approximately £287.533 million.

Going forward, it is the Company's intention that the significant majority  of
