FAQs relating to the Allied UNiversal and GardaWorld Offer

 I accepted the GardaWorld offer what should I do?

The Acceptance Condition for GardaWorld has not been satisfied and the Cash Offer has now lapsed and is no longer capable of acceptance. Any G4S Shareholders who have accepted the GardaWorld Cash Offer cease to be bound by their acceptances.

You can read the announcement outlining what to do in this circumstance here

When can I expect to receive the funds for my shares?
The transaction was declared wholly unconditional on 6 April 2021 and if you have accepted the offer, you should receive a cheque within 14 days of that date.
My share certificate has been lost/stolen - how do I get a replacement?
If you have lost your share certificate you will need to inform our registrars as soon as possible. This can be done by telephone or in writing. Link Asset Services will then be able to guide you through the process of obtaining a duplicate certificate. Depending on the value of the shares represented by the share certificate, a fee may be payable.
What happens if I do nothing/do not accept the Allied Universal offer? 
It is expected that the shares will be delisted from all exchanges and so you will be holding an illiquid asset.
