Mr Mark Seligman, a non-executive director, owns 50,496 ordinary shares of G4S plc, having acquired 10,000 shares on 13 March 2006, 40,000 shares on 29 June 2006 and a further 496 shares in November 2007 under the company’s dividend reinvestment plan. These shares were held from the time of acquisition, with other assets, in a portfolio account in his own name.  The assets in this account were subject to a security arrangement which pre-dated any of the acquisitions referred to above.

Following discussion with the company, and after taking legal advice, both Mr Seligman and the company believed that the security arrangement did not itself constitute a transaction under the FSA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules (the “DTRs”). Noting the FSA’s recent press release and statement in relation to the DTRs and the granting of security over shares, Mr Seligman has now formally notified the company of the grant of security.

Therefore in accordance with the FSA’s recent statement, we hereby give notice of the grant of security over the shares described above.

We also give notice that these shares are no longer subject to the security arrangement described above, the security having been discharged today.
