G4S wins security contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan

G4S Risk Management announces that it has won a new contract to provide
security services to Basra Gas Company (BGC) for three years commencing
January 2016 with a total contract value of $187 million. The exercise of a
two-year extension option would bring the total value to $270 million.

BGC operates several assets including two gas plants, several compressor
stations, a marine shipping terminal, an LPG storage terminal, and all the
pipelines between. BGC captures and transports gas from oil fields of West
Qurna 1, North Rumaila, South Rumaila and Zubair. This is the largest gas
project in Iraq's history and the world's largest gas flares reduction
project.

G4S Risk Management has also successfully renewed a contract to provide
security services to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in
Afghanistan for the next three years. Including a two-year extension option,
this has a total contract value of £100 million. Under the contract, G4S will
provide close protection for British diplomats, attached personnel and
officials travelling within Afghanistan and security at the British Embassy.

Ashley Almanza, G4S Group Chief Executive said:

"Our Risk Management and Risk Consulting businesses deliver high quality
services to our customers and we are delighted to have been entrusted by both
the FCO and BGC to provide these important services. These major contract
wins reflect G4S's world class expertise and investment in sophisticated
security services."
