This from Motley Fool - "Well-placed for growth G4S may not be the first company that comes to mind when thinking about dividend stocks, but I believe the company is well placed to capitalise on the rising demand for outsourced security services around the world. G4S has hardly been the model company over the past 10 years. A number of scandals have rocked the group, and at one point analysts were questioning whether or not the firm could ever recover from the reputational damage. G4S Plc Sell: 304.80 | Buy: 305.50 negative 1.40 (-0.46%) Graph Prices delayed by at least 15 minutes. So far, it looks as if these concerns are unfounded. For 2016 revenue jumped by more than 10% to £7.6bn while pre-tax profits increased 17.9% to £461m. Further growth is expected in the years ahead as the company unwinds unprofitable legacy contracts. The very fact that revenue grew last year thanks to a new global security contract for a major bank, and new facilities management services in Ireland shows that G4S’s reputation is recovering and management can now build on this to continue growing. Now that the company has learned from its mistakes, future growth should be more predictable. And it’s not as if the firm will find it hard to get work. The UK security guarding services market is worth £5bn alone and is growing at a rate of 5% to 8% per annum. Meanwhile, the US contract security market is worth $43bn and has increased at a rate of around 4% per annum for the past few years. Growth in markets such as airport security is much faster than the average. G4S is well placed to both grab market share and grow in line with the rest of the security industry, and as long as the company continues to put its reputation first, shareholders should be able to reap the benefits. Shares in the company currently support a dividend yield of 3.2%, and according to current City forecasts, the payout will be covered twice by earnings per share for full-year 2018."

Security services company G4S got a boost after Barclays upped its stance on the stock to 'equalweight' from 'underweight' and hiked the price target to 260p from 160p. The bank said it reckons this year will see a combination of high organic growth, cost savings and balance sheet deleveraging. Barclays' more positive view on organic growth and margins as well as favourable currency moves and the removal of its assumption of a credit rating downgrade lead it to upgrade its earning per share forecast for 2017 to 18.1p from 15.8p. The bank expects organic revenue to be 5% in 2017, which would be the fourth highest of the 30 business services companies it covers. "The growth is supported by good contract wins and firm demand for security services. At the same time, after more than one false dawn, cost savings from multiple initiatives started by management in 2013 could now be set to come through.

The debt has started to reduce and they have annouced they are working to reduce it furter. Greater profits and the reduction in the cost of borrowing will help..But more importantly they have lots of big assets for sale could help quickly reduce it. One for example is G4S Israel for which I found this article this morning:http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/business/1.736246?v=E56E3DD162B0D78BF8859095F8538D70
