STATEMENT REGARDING UNSOLICITED POSSIBLE CASH OFFER

  

G4S plc (the "Company") notes the announcement by Garda World Security Corporation (“Garda World”) regarding an unsolicited possible cash offer for the Company, or a part thereof.

There can be no certainty that any firm offer for the Company will be made by Garda World nor as to the terms on which any offer might be made. Shareholders are urged to take no action at this time.

Following the establishment of our Global Cash Solutions division on 1 January 2018, the Board announced in December 2018 that the Company is reviewing options for the separation of the Cash Solutions business from the Group. In parallel with the review, the Company is taking steps to enable it to commence the process of separation in the second half of 2019. Our aim is to establish two strong independent businesses that are able to take advantage of their leading market positions and excellent service offerings. The Board believes that a separation of Cash Solutions has the clear potential to enhance the focus and success of both businesses and thus to unlock substantial shareholder value.

As previously announced, the Group has received other unsolicited expressions of interest to acquire the Global Cash Solutions and/or Retail Cash Solutions businesses. No assurance can be provided at this stage that any of these expressions of interest will lead to a proposal or transaction.

A copy of this announcement is also available on G4S plc’s website at www.g4s.com/investors

The content of this website is not incorporated in, and does not form part of, this announcement.
