(Disclosures made in accordance with DTR 3.1.2R)

The company has been notified  that, on 10 November 2009, the following directors of, and other persons discharging managerial responsibility (“PDMRs”) within, G4S plc acquired shares in the company by exercising executive share options.

The options exercised by the directors and PDMRs were granted during the period 1999 to 2001 and were therefore granted over Securicor plc shares that were subsequently rolled over into G4S plc shares at the time of the merger between Securicor and Group 4 Falck in 2004. These options were due to expire between 2009 and 2011 and the directors and PDMRs concerned considered it fiscally efficient to exercise them during the current tax year.

Details of the options exercised and the exercise prices are as follows:

Directors

Option Price 164p 133.75p 153p 108p
Nick Buckles 95,000 75,000 55,000 700,000
Trevor Dighton 55,000 40,000 30,000 350,000

At the same date, the directors sold all of these shares at £2.4665 per share.

Following these transactions, the interests in the ordinary shares of G4S plc of the directors mentioned above (including awards of deferred shares) remain unaffected and are:

Nick Buckles
1,591,228 shares

Trevor Dighton
1,045,528 shares
