    G4S shares dive as Garda backs out of takeover

    G4S shares tumbled more than 8% today after Canada’s Garda World walked away from a possible bid for the security giant. G4S has earned a reputation for losing prisoners on the way to court and this year reported a 63% drop in profits, leaving it potentially vulnerable to a bid. G4S in turn said it had received no proposal from Garda and would continue its review of the cash solutions business, which moves money to and from banks, shops and cash machines.

    G4S acknowledged Garda's decision and said it had not received any proposals or requests for extension of the May 8 deadline from the Canadian firm during the offer period. Garda said on Sunday it did not intend to make an offer for G4S, having previously said it was considering a cash offer for some or all of the company. Shares of G4S, the world's largest listed security company, recouped some initial losses to trade down 5.6 percent as of 0711 GMT, after it also said it would focus on its previously announced review to separate its cash solutions unit.

    G4S first-quarter revenue rises, separation review on track

    The world's largest listed security company has been working to rebuild its reputation after a series of scandals, most notably a failure in 2012 to provide enough guards for the Olympic Games in London. The company had said in December it was looking to split off its cash business to focus on its security operations and said last month it received interest from potential bidders for the unit, which includes Cash 360 machines operated by retailers and a cash transport business. The G4S update comes in the light of Garda World Security's announcement last week that it was considering a cash offer for some or all of the British company.

    G4S soars as Canada's Garda World Security considers bid

    Canada's Garda World Security said on Wednesday it was considering a cash offer for some or all of G4S, sending shares in the world's largest listed security company up almost a third for their biggest daily gain in nearly two decades. At Wednesday's close, G4S shares were up about 20 percent at 215.35 pence, adding nearly half a billion pounds to its value and taking the British security firm's market capitalisation to about £3.4 billion. An offer could mark a change of fortune for G4S, which is struggling to recover from a string of scandals, notably a failure in 2012 to provide enough guards for the London Olympic Games.

    Is G4S a takeover target? A casual look at the share price, down a little today at 184p from 280p last August, suggests it might have caught the eye of bargain hunters. City traders were gossiping that GardaWorld, a Canadian security firm which is rather like G4S but with less of a reputation for losing prisoners on the way to court, might be casting its eye over the company.
