Graeme Davies rounded up this period of contracts with his perspective in the November 2018 issue of FM World:
Week commencing 5 November
After a subdued first half of the year, security specialist G4S activity picked up in the third quarter as organic revenues rose by 2.5 per cent, compared with a 0.2 per cent uplift in the first six months of 2018. The group saw good growth in North America, where Security Solutions saw revenues rise by 6.5 per cent; this helped offset weak growth of just 0.2 per cent in this division in Europe and the Middle East, where weakness in the Benelux region dragged down performance.
