Carillion calls in accountant EY to cut costs

17 Juillet, 2017, 15:37 | Author: Marc Bacque
  • Carillion saw the value of its shares fall by nearly £600m after it issued a profit warning

The shortfalls were discovered following an earlier contract review helped by fellow accountants KPMG.

EY and Carillion will focus on "cost reduction and cash collection" following a torrid seven days for the firm.

Shares in Carillion plunged more than 70 per cent at one point last week, wiping nearly £600m off its market cap, after it said on Monday it expected to take £845m of writedowns on some of its largest projects.

Carillion is a leading supplier to Sellafield and has an office in Moor Row.

Carillion has brought in accountancy giant EY to look at cost reduction and cash collection as part of a strategic review of the troubled business.
