(Reuters) - Engineering design firm AECOM Technology Corp on Sunday said it would pay about $6 billion in cash and stock to acquire URS Corp, an engineering and construction services company, to create a combined company with about $19 billion in annual sales and more than 95,000 employees. AECOM in a news release said it would pay $56.31 a share in cash and stock for URS. Terms of the deal were unanimously approved by both of the California-based companies, and the deal is expected to close in October, AECOM said. URS stockholders will receive $33 in cash and 0.734 share of AECOM common stock for each URS share.
