RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brink's Company (NYSE: BCO),
a global leader in secure logistics, announced that it has agreed to sell its
event security operations in France to Groupe Ageparfi, and its cash handling
business in Poland to Impel Security Polska.  Both transactions are expected
to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.

Brink's will continue to operate its airport security business in France.  The
company also will continue to operate in Poland through its Global Services

Tom Schievelbein, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Brink's,
said:  "Our strategy is to maximize profits in developed markets while
investing in growth opportunities in emerging markets and high-value
solutions.  These divestitures are the result of an ongoing portfolio review,
which is aimed at reshaping our European footprint by reducing our presence in
markets that are unlikely to achieve an acceptable return." 

In 2011, the businesses to be divested had combined revenues of approximately
$45 million and an operating loss of about $3 million.  Brink's employs
approximately 1,100 people at the two businesses.
