    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.

    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.

    UK government does not see Capita heading same way as Carillion - PM's spokesman

    The British government monitors the financial health of all its strategic suppliers and does not believe that any, including Capita (CPI.L), are in a comparable position to Carillion, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. "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.
