In exchange, CCCI will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Aecon, for $20.37 per share in cash, and will advance its global growth strategy.

The Davies team on this transaction includes Vince Mercier, Brett Seifred, Zain Rizvi and Andrew Mihalik (M&A); and John Bodrug and Jim Dinning (Competition).
