Multiplicative inverse transversals of regular semigroups were introduced by Blyth and McFadden in 1982. Since then, regular semigroups with an inverse transversal and their generalizations, such as regular semigroups with an orthodox transversal and abundant semigroups with an ample transversal, are investigated extensively in literature. On the other hand, restriction semigroups are generalizations of inverse semigroups in the class of non-regular semigroups. In this paper we initiate the investigations of E-semiabundant semigroups by using the ideal of "transversals". More precisely, we first introduce multiplicative restriction transversals for E-semiabundant semigroups and obtain some basic properties of E-semiabundant semigroups containing a multiplicative restriction transver- sal. Then we provide a construction method for E-semiabundant semigroups containing a multiplicative restriction transversal by using the Munn semigroup of an admissible quadruple and a restriction semigroup under some natural conditions. Our construction is similar to Hall's spined product construction of an orthodox semigroup. As a corollary, we obtain a new construction of a regular semigroup with a multiplicative inverse transversal and an abundant semigroup having a multiplicative ample transversal, which enriches the corresponding results obtained by Blyth-McFadden and El-Qallali, respectively.
