EnerMech’s boss has denied that the Aberdeen energy service company has been sold to a US private equity firm.
A report by Sky News said Washington-based Carlyle Group would take control of EnerMech next week in a £425 million deal.
The report said an official announcement was expected “within days”.
In an email to staff members, seen by Energy Voice, EnerMech chief executive Doug Duguid described the report as “inaccurate”.
He said: “Whilst we have made no secret of the fact that we would like to bring new investment into EnerMech in order to continue our growth, no deal has been concluded and the news in today’s media is inaccurate.”
A spokesman for EnerMech declined to provide an official response.
