(Reuters) – British security contractor G4S <GFS.L> said on Friday its board had approved plans to separate its cash solutions business as it looks to focus on its mainstay security operations.

The company, which had received a number of unsolicited expressions of interest from third parties to acquire parts or all of the cash solutions businesses, said it would continue to evaluate proposals for all or parts of the business alongside the implementation of its demerger plans.

G4S, the world’s largest private security group, said adjusted profit before interest, tax and amortization rose to 234 million pounds, slightly above analysts’ average consensus of 231 million pounds, based on company compiled estimates.
