    CORRECTED-UPDATE 1-Securitas targets doubling of electronic security sales by 2023

    Sweden's Securitas aims to double sales of electronic security, including combined packages, to about 40 billion crowns ($4.2 billion) by 2023, it said on Thursday. The world's biggest security group, the services of which include guard personnel, alarm surveillance and airport security, wants to increase the share of electronic surveillance in its business mix, thereby reducing wage costs. Securitas also seeks to move away from standalone service contracts towards more profitable packages that combine electronic security with other protective services, such as fire safety, corporate risk management and traditional manned guarding services.

    G4S soars as Canada's Garda World Security considers bid

    Canada's Garda World Security said on Wednesday it was considering a cash offer for some or all of G4S, sending shares in the world's largest listed security company up almost a third for their biggest daily gain in nearly two decades. At Wednesday's close, G4S shares were up about 20 percent at 215.35 pence, adding nearly half a billion pounds to its value and taking the British security firm's market capitalisation to about £3.4 billion. An offer could mark a change of fortune for G4S, which is struggling to recover from a string of scandals, notably a failure in 2012 to provide enough guards for the London Olympic Games.
