It suffered its worst daily fall since June 24, 2016, when Britain's vote to exit the European Union roiled global markets.

The FTSE 100 fell 0.6 percent to a six-week low with most European bourses also closing in negative territory. Intense competition in Spain and Italy took the shine off Vodafone's third-quarter revenues and sent the shares of the world's second largest mobile operator down 4.5 percent.
A British government minister on Thursday played down comparisons between outsourcing company Capita (CPI.L) and collapsed rival Carillion (CLLN.L) after officials met the company's senior executives following its profit warning.

The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) fell on Wednesday as shares in outsourcer Capita (CPI.L) tanked after a profit warning, further weighing on the monthly performance of the UK's blue-chip index. Earnings updates were the main focus on Wednesday, none more so than Capita's. The mid-cap company's shares tumbled by 47 percent, its biggest one-day loss, after it issued a profit warning, suspended its dividend and announced a rights issue.

British outsourcing group Capita (CPI.L) lost 40 percent of its market value on Wednesday after its new boss slashed profit forecasts and set out plans to raise cash to avoid the same fate as collapsed rival Carillion. Just two weeks after Carillion perished under a pile of debt, Capita, which provides IT services to companies and governments to cut costs, said it needed a complete overhaul and to retrench. Under new Chief Executive Jonathan Lewis who arrived in December, Capita said it would raise around 700 million pounds ($992 million) in a rights issue in 2018, scrap the dividend and sell assets to enable it to boost investment, focus on contract profitability, and plug a hole in its pensions scheme.

LONDON/BALMEDIE, Scotland (Reuters) - In Balmedie, a village on the northeast coast of Scotland, an unfinished 12 km stretch of dual carriageway is a stark illustration of why British construction company Carillion went bust this week. Britain's biggest corporate failure in almost a decade threatens thousands of jobs and has forced the government to step in to guarantee a slew of public services that the firm had provided. A handful of workers in high-visibility jackets could be seen still on the building site this week, on a bitterly cold day, nine months after that section of the route was expected to open.
LONDON/CAMBRIDGE, England (Reuters) - Britain ordered a fast-track inquiry into the role played by Carillion's directors in the failure of the construction and services group, as some of its thousands of small suppliers started to lay off workers on Tuesday. The government, which relies on big outsourcing companies such as Carillion to provide services from school dinners to road building, stepped in to guarantee that key contracts would be unaffected. Business Secretary Greg Clark said a full picture of the events which caused Carillion to enter liquidation needed to be established by the Insolvency Service.
