INVESCO Asset Management Limited Key Developments

G4S to Raise Capital

G4S plc (LSE:GFS) plans to raise about £600 million by issuing new shares and selling off businesses to reduce debt. G4S said it would place 140.9 million new ordinary shares, representing up to 9.99% of its existing share capital in order to shore up its balance sheet, adding that the move would give it greater flexibility to invest in the business, while reducing the risk of a credit downgrade. G4S didn't disclose how much the shares would be sold at but based on the current price the placing would raise about £350 million. G4S said the placing was supported by its largest shareholder, INVESCO Asset Management Limited, which owns a 14.85% stake in the business. Citigroup Inc., JP Morgan and Barclays are joint bookrunners for the sale. G4S also said it could raise up to £250 million in asset sales, announcing agreements to sell a number of businesses, including its Canadian cash-security business and its Colombia Data solutions businesses. A sale of U.S. businesses continues, G4S said.

Suitors Eye JJB Sports

Jon Moulton and Decathlon S.A. have been named possible bidders for JJB Sports Plc. JJB said, "The Company has continued its discussions with its strategic partners regarding a further capital raising and restructuring of its store portfolio to facilitate the turnaround of the group's trading performance. However, following these discussions, the Directors do not believe that the company will be able to raise the level of funds required to implement the turnaround. As a result, the board has decided to conduct a formal sale process of the company and now wishes to invite offers to support further investment in the company, which may result in a sale of the company or its assets." Better Capital PCC Limited has got access to JJB Sports’ data room, a Sunday newspaper reported. Dave Whelan is also interested in acquiring JJB Sports. Sports Direct International Plc and JD Sports Fashion Plc are also looking at acquiring at parts of JJB Sports. OpCapita LLP and INVESCO Asset Management Limited have also been seen as possible suitors. JJB Sports’ sale process is being handled by KPMG and David McCorquodale. Pearce Roberts, Gareth Roberts, Kevin Pullen, and Ewen Fergusson at Herbert Smith acted as advisor to JJB Sports.
