been prepared following the adoption of IFRS10/11/12 effective 1 January

Financial performance for the three months to 31 March was in line with our
plans. Revenues, compared to the same three month period last year grew by
4.8%, with organic growth of 5.0%. We continued to invest in organic growth
and our wider programme of corporate transformation and underlying profit
before interest, tax and amortisation (PBITA) and earnings were slightly
higher than the same period of 2013.

Emerging markets organic revenue growth was 16% with double-digit growth
across all emerging markets regions. Developed markets' revenue was flat
compared with 2013.

The group had a positive start to the year winning new business with annual
revenues of over
£440 million. Major contract wins include retail and services customers in the
US, retail customers in Brazil, port security consultancy in the Middle East,
cash solutions contracts in the Netherlands and significant new business with
the UK Government.

In April, the UK Government gave a positive assessment of the group's
Corporate Renewal Plan in the UK which forms part of the group's wider
corporate transformation programme

The group continues to have a strong financial position, with S&P recently
confirming its investment grade credit rating at BBB- (Stable).

Commenting on current trading and outlook, Ashley Almanza, CEO said "Our
trading performance is in line with our plans, reflecting strong growth in
emerging markets and satisfactory performance in developed markets. We
continue to implement a group-wide transformation programme which is focused
on embedding our group values, restructuring key businesses and investing in
organic growth, technology, innovation and cost leadership and which supports
our long term objectives of delivering sustainable growth in earnings, cash
flow and dividend."
