THIS ANNOUNCEMENT AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN IT IS RESTRICTED AND IS NOT
FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION  OR DISTRIBUTION, IN  WHOLE OR IN  PART, DIRECTLY  OR 
INDIRECTLY, IN  OR INTO  THE UNITED  STATES, AUSTRALIA,  CANADA, JAPAN,  SOUTH 
AFRICA OR ANY OTHER STATE OR  JURISDICTION IN WHICH SUCH RELEASE,  PUBLICATION

OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

                                   G4S Plc

                           ("G4S" or "the Company")

                              RESULTS OF PLACING

G4S is pleased  to announce the  completion of the  placing announced  earlier 
today (the "Placing").

A total  of 140,925,797  new ordinary  shares of  25 pence  each in  G4S  (the 
"Placing Shares")  have  been  placed  by  Citigroup  Global  Markets  Limited 
("Citi"), J.P. Morgan Securities plc (which conducts its UK investment banking
business under the name J.P. Morgan  Cazenove) ("JPMC") and Barclays Bank  PLC 
("Barclays") at a price of 247 pence per Placing Share, with existing and  new 
institutional  investors,  raising  gross  proceeds  of  approximately  £348.1 
million. The  Placing Shares  being issued  represent approximately  9.99  per 
cent. of the issued ordinary share capital of G4S prior to the Placing.

Applications have been made to  the Financial Conduct Authority for  admission 
of the Placing  Shares to  the premium listing  segment of  the Official  List 
maintained by the UK Listing Authority  and to the London Stock Exchange  (the 
"LSE") for admission to trading of the Placing Shares on the LSE's main market
for listed securities  (together "Admission"). It  is expected that  Admission 
will take place at 8.00  a.m. on 2 September 2013  (at which time the  Placing 
will become unconditional)  and that  dealings in  the Placing  Shares on  the 
LSE's main  market for  listed  securities will  commence  at the  same  time. 
Application will also be made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to listing
and trading on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will  rank 
pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of 25 pence  each 
in the capital of G4S, including the right to receive all dividends (including
the interim dividend  of 3.42p  (DKK 0.2972)  per share  announced today)  and 
other distributions declared,  made or paid  on or in  respect of such  shares 
after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

Citi, JPMC and Barclays acted as Joint Bookrunners in respect of the Placing.

Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citi"),  J.P. Morgan Securities plc  (which 
conducts its  UK  investment  banking  business under  the  name  J.P.  Morgan 
Cazenove) ("JPMC")  and  Barclays Bank  PLC  ("Barclays"), each  of  which  is

express or implied,  is or  will be  made as  to, or  in relation  to, and  no

written or oral  information made available  to or publicly  available to  any 
interested party or its advisers in  connection with the Company, the  Placing 
Shares or the Placing and any liability therefore is expressly disclaimed.

Certain statements in this  announcement are forward-looking statements  which 
are based on the  Company's expectations, intentions and  projectionsregarding 
its future performance, anticipated  events or trends  and other matters  that 
are not historical facts. These forward-looking statements, whichmay use words
such as "aim", "anticipates", "believe"", ""intend"", "estimate"",  ""expect"" 
and words of  similar meaning,  include all  matters that  are not  historical 
facts. These forward-looking statements involve risks, and uncertainties  that 
could cause the actual results of operations, financial condition,  liquidity, 
dividend policy and  the development of  the industry in  which the  Company's 
business operates  to differ  materially from  the impression  created by  the 
forward-looking statements.  These statements  are  not guarantees  of  future 
performance and  are subject  to known  and unknown  risks, uncertainties  and 
other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from  those 
expressed or implied  by such forward-looking  statements. Given these  risks 
and uncertainties,  prospective investors  are cautioned  not to  place  undue 
reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only
as of the  date of such  statements and, except  as required by  the FCA,  the 
London Stock Exchange or applicable law, the Company undertakes no  obligation 
to update  or revise  publicly any  forward-looking statements,  whether as  a 
result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Any indication in this announcement of the price at which Placing Shares  have 
been bought or sold  in the past cannot  be relied upon as  a guide to  future 
performance. No statement  in this announcement  is intended to  be a  profit 
forecast and no statement in this  announcement should be interpreted to  mean 
that earnings per  share of the  Company for the  current or future  financial 
years would necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings  per 
share of the Company. The  price of Placing Shares  and the income from  them 
may go down  as well  as up and  investors may  not get back  the full  amount 
invested on disposal of the Placing Shares.

In addition to the main market  of the London Stock Exchange plc,  application 
will also be made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to listing and trading
on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen.
