Dallas-based Jacobs Engineering Group Inc, is buying rival CH2M Hill Cos Ltd. for $3.27 billion in cash and stock.

Jacobs has formed an Integration Management Office (IMO) to oversee the integration of Jacobs and CH2M. The IMO will be jointly led on a full-time, dedicated basis by senior executives from both companies. Gary Mandel, who joined Jacobs six years ago through the Aker Solutions Process & Construction acquisition, and most recently served as Jacobs president of Petroleum & Chemicals (P&C), has been appointed to lead the integration for Jacobs. In addition, Jacobs announced that Vinayak Pai has been appointed interim head of global Petroleum & Chemicals.

Perella Weinberg Partners LP and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are serving as financial advisors to Jacobs. Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz are serving as legal counsel to Jacobs.

BofA Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse are serving as financial advisors to CH2M. Latham & Watkins LLP and Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A. are serving as legal counsel to CH2M.

Jacobs employs over 54,000 people and operates in more than 25 countries around the world
