8 October 2015 - US-based energy infrastructure contractor Willbros Group, Inc. (NYSE: WG) has executed a purchase agreement for the sale of its professional services segment to TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) for USD 130m cash, the company said.

The agreement is binding and the transaction is subject to normal closing conditions including the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended.

Willbros said the sale is expected to close before the end of November. Under the terms of its amended credit facilities, Willbros will retain USD 43m of the net proceeds to maintain its current liquidity and working capital.

The balance of the proceeds, net of closing and transaction expenses, will be applied to reduction of the company's term loan debt.
