Reuters reports that the deal offers around seven times Storks’ annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of 100 million euros ($109 million), the companies said.

Fluor said the acquisition would combine well with its own operations in the same industry and give it access to Stork’s customer base , which spans the globe but is most focused in Europe.
