EDMONTON, Alberta & NEW YORK -- 

TSX, NYSE:STN

Stantec, today announces that it has initiated a strategic review for MWH Constructors, Stantec Treatment and Slayden (“Constructors”). Stantec acquired Constructors through its acquisition of MWH Global, completed in May 2016. As part of this review, Stantec will evaluate a range of strategic options to optimize the value of Constructors, to provide the best prospects for our people, clients and shareholders.

Constructors provides construction and construction management services on mainly water-related projects for key long-term clients. As ranked by Engineering News-Record, Constructors holds the No. 1 position among “Top International Contractors” for wastewater treatment and the No. 3 position for Sewer & Solid Waste.

Constructors predominantly operates in the United States and the United Kingdom. In the United States, Constructors and Slayden offer start-to-finish construction capabilities to municipal, utility, federal, and industrial clients, including commissioning and start-up services. In the United Kingdom, Constructors, operating as Stantec Treatment, participates primarily in design-build water and wastewater projects through joint ventures and alliance agreements. Constructors generated over $1 billion in gross revenue in 2017 representing 18.3% gross revenue organic growth over 2016. Constructors has approximately 1,900 professionals in North America and the United Kingdom.

The existing joint projects between Stantec and Constructors are a sound basis for business partnership going forward. Stantec has retained Perella Weinberg Partners, L.P. as financial advisor to assist in its review of strategic alternatives for Constructors. Additional insights on the review will be shared on Stantec’s first quarter conference call, scheduled for May 10, 2018 at 7:00AM MDT.
