G4S plc UK DK : Statement re Pre-Conference Update

2 November 2016

G4S to Present at Investor Conferences

G4S, the leading global integrated security company, will be presenting at
various investor conferences in November and the Group therefore provides
this update for the nine months ended 30 September 2016. All figures and
commentary are stated at constant exchange rates.

HIGHLIGHTS

Since the start of the year the Group has won new contracts with annual
revenues of £1 billion and total contract value of £2 billion.

Revenues from continuing operations in the first nine months of 2016 were
£4,821 million, up by 5.7% compared with the same period last year.

The combination of the group's organic growth and productivity programmes has
produced double-digit growth in earnings and operating cash flow.

The Group remains on track with its plans to reduce leverage to 2.5x ND/EBITDA
by the end of 2017; operating cash flows from continuing operations have
increased by more than 60% year-on-year for the first nine months, and the
Group is making good progress with its portfolio programme.

Following strong investment performance in the G4S pension scheme, the G4S
pension trustees have agreed a reduced annual pension deficit payment of £39
million in 2016, with a 3% per annum increase until the next funding
valuation.

G4S Chief Executive Officer Ashley Almanza commented: "The Group's strategy is
delivering tangible benefits which are reflected in our operating and
financial performance. The strong progress made in the first half has been
sustained and for the first nine months the Group has delivered revenue
growth of 5.7% and double-digit growth in earnings and operating cash flow.
We still have a long way to go to realise the full potential of our strategy
and we are encouraged by the Group's progress and prospects."
