Responding to Construction Week's query regarding how Carillion's closure would affect Emrill, Davies said: "In light of the recent media coverage about one of its shareholders in the UK, Emrill advises that it is a profitable, independently-operated Dubai-based organisation, which is trading positively and grew its revenue in 2017 by approximately 10%.

"The day-to-day operations and ongoing concern of Emrill are not affected by the affairs of its shareholders."

The development followed a meeting held on 12 January, 2018, between Carillion, its financial stakeholders, and the UK government. 

No solutions were found that the end of the meeting, which was held to find options that would help reduce Carillion's debt and strengthen the group's balance sheet.
