    Serco's Soames calls for end to 'Wild West' in UK outsourcing

    Britain's Serco (SRP.L) has called for more transparency from the government over the award of public contracts to protect companies after rival Carillion went bust, saying the market should not be a "Wild West". Carillion, which took on large infrastructure projects as well as service contracts, collapsed in January largely because of problems with its public building works. Critics accuse the government of encouraging a risk-taking culture in which companies bid aggressively for contracts with thin margins, leaving little leeway when projects hit predictable delays.

    Serco rallies on signs it can withstand bumpy UK outsourcing road

    Britain's Serco said it expected to emerge as one of the winners from the turmoil hitting the outsourcing sector after it reported 2017 results in line with its expectations and predicted profit growth for the next two years. Serco, which provides justice, transport, defence and welfare services for governments across the world, is in the latter stages of a five-year restructuring, started after it ran into the kind of problems which led to the demise of rival Carillion (Frankfurt: 924047 - news) in January. Serco shares rose 5 percent in a falling market after Chief (Taiwan OTC: 3345.TWO - news) Executive Rupert Soames said the actions it has taken made it more robust than rivals who are also grappling with a downturn in demand, such as Capita (LSE: CPI.L - news) and Interserve (Frankfurt: 860509 - news) .

    Britain's Interserve exits power business as part of restructuring

    British contractor Interserve (Frankfurt: 860509 - news) , which is in talks with its bankers to secure funding after issuing two profit warnings last year, has decided to close its power business as part of an operational restructuring of its industrial unit. Outsourcers such as Interserve have been the focus of investor attention since competitor Carillion (Frankfurt: 924047 - news) entered liquidation in January, putting 43,000 jobs at risk. Interserve, which employs about 80,000 people worldwide, is a major player in the outsourcing industry, managing facilities including washrooms and waste management at most of Britain's busiest rail stations and some government departments.

    Capita chief turns to Carillion advisers as debt problems mount

    The troubled outsourcing giant which collects the TV Licence Fee has turned to the same bank which advised Carillion (Frankfurt: 924047 - news) in the months before the construction giant's collapse. Sky News has learnt that Capita (LSE: CPI.L - news) , which shocked the City with a massive profit warning last week, has drafted in Lazard (Frankfurt: A0DQP8 - news) in recent days to advise on financing options. The move comes just days after Capita's new chief executive put another set of financiers on standby to raise ‎£700m from a rights issue, which would involves the sale of new shares to investors.

    Babcock trims revenue​ forecast, savings protect profit

    British engineer Babcock trimmed its 2017-18 revenue forecast on Tuesday due to slower demand in the oil, gas and defence sectors, the latest blow to the country's outsourcing industry. Its shares were down 2.2 percent at 0900 GMT, after a 20 percent slide in the past three months and against a near 3 percent fall in Britain's main FTSE 100 share index. The collapse of construction and support services group Carillion (Frankfurt: 924047 - news) in January, and a big profit warning from outsourcer Capita (LSE: CPI.L - news) , have also sent shockwaves through the sector.

    Deutsche Bank drags European shares towards worst weekly loss since August

    European shares were set for their biggest weekly loss in six months on Friday as a slump in Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) on a disappointing update dragged the heavyweight banking sector lower after a strong start to the year. "The stock market cannot always go up and multiples are very high. Vailati said European shares were more vulnerable than their U.S. peers to possible pull back because earnings growth expectations were stable, whereas those for U.S. companies were being revised upwards thanks to measures there to cut taxes.

The FTSE 100 fell 0.6 percent to a six-week low with most European bourses also closing in negative territory. Intense competition in Spain and Italy took the shine off Vodafone's third-quarter revenues and sent the shares of the world's second largest mobile operator down 4.5 percent.
