    Shares in security group G4S skid on Middle East, margin pressure

    Shares in G4S (GFS.L) tumbled 7 percent on Thursday after the world's largest security group reported a fall in first-half profit, hit by restructuring costs and weaker revenues from the Middle East. G4S, which provides outsourced services to manage cash including guarding and security, is in the final stages of a four-year restructuring programme and is also cutting costs to boost productivity. It said it secured new contracts in the first half which would lift revenues going forward and would start to reap technology-related productivity gains, but investors fretted about narrowing margins.

    Carillion collapse exposed flaws in UK government policy - MPs

    The collapse of Carillion exposed the risks of using private companies to cut the cost of delivering public services and its failure could be repeated if the government does not learn lessons, lawmakers said on Monday. Carillion, which employed 43,000 people to provide services in defence, education, health and transport, collapsed in January, becoming the largest construction bankruptcy in British history. A report published by a parliamentary committee on Monday said the government's overriding priority for outsourcing had been spending as little money as possible while forcing contractors to take unacceptable levels of financial risks.

    Taking lessons from Carillion, Britain toughens outsourcer rules

    The government, which awards 200 billion pounds of public contracts to private companies every year, plans to force those doing critical work for government departments to provide a "living will" agreement that would pass their work to another supplier in an emergency. Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington said earlier on Monday he was also seeking to make it easier for smaller companies, charities and social enterprises to take on large government contracts, and would demand more transparency and social awareness from public service providers. Carillion collapsed in January when its banks halted their funding, leading to the loss of thousands of jobs and a political row over Britain's outsourcing of public services to private companies.

    G4S says trading in line with full-year targets

    G4S (GFS.L), the world's biggest security group, said it expected growth to accelerate in the second half of the year after organic revenue fell 2 percent in the first quarter due to tough comparatives with last year. G4S, which provides outsourced services such as guarding, security and cash management, said it was building up a strong pipeline in its retail cash solutions business in North America and overall trading in line with its full-year targets. "We expect growth to accelerate in the second half of 2018 as the strong first-half comparatives from Retail Cash Solutions roll off, our new contracts mobilise and our productivity programmes deliver benefits to the bottom line," said ChiefExecutive Ashley Almanza.

    Global security and cash management firm G4S expects notes and coins to drive its business, even as their usage falls in favour of electronic transactions around the world. Although data compiled by the British company best known for transporting banknotes in armoured vans shows people are increasingly paying for anything from their daily coffee to online bargains with cards and mobiles, Chief Executive Ashley Almanza said G4S is defying its own expectations. "Our fastest growing service line anywhere in the world in the last three years has been cash solutions in the United States," Almanza told Reuters in a telephone interview.

    G4S sees bright outlook and further investment on cost-cutting

    The world's largest security group G4S said its gains from a cost savings drive would go towards boosting its technological capabilities, giving it "substantial confidence" in its medium-term outlook. G4S, which provides outsourced services such as guarding, security and cash management, said full-year revenue was 7.43 billion pounds, below analyst expectations for 7.55 billion pounds, but within in a lower range it had a forecast late last year of between 3 and 4 percent growth.

    Serco's Soames calls for end to 'Wild West' in UK outsourcing

    Britain's Serco (SRP.L) has called for more transparency from the government over the award of public contracts to protect companies after rival Carillion went bust, saying the market should not be a "Wild West". Carillion, which took on large infrastructure projects as well as service contracts, collapsed in January largely because of problems with its public building works. Critics accuse the government of encouraging a risk-taking culture in which companies bid aggressively for contracts with thin margins, leaving little leeway when projects hit predictable delays.

    Capita shares plunge 40 percent as UK outsourcer cuts forecasts

    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.

"Broadly we monitor the financial health of all our strategic suppliers, including Capita, and we are in regular discussions with them regarding their financial position," the spokesman told reporters, after Capita shares fell sharply on news of a restructuring.
