    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.

    Britain's G4S looks beyond small change in cash revolution

    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.

    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.
