We are delighted to have advised T.S.S. (Total Security Services) Ltd on their sale to G4S Secure Solutions UK.

Founded in 1989, TSS is a family owned security business with over 6,500 front line staff, providing over 11 million hours of guarding services each year to some of the UK’s largest retailers.

Our corporate finance advisory team advise the shareholders on the sale of the business.

Aided by our extensive experience in the security sector and the company’s strong performance in recent years, we were able to identify the shareholders’ key criteria in a buyer, optimally position the business and deliver a hands-on approach to managing conversations with a number of interested parties.

Once in exclusivity we guided management through the due diligence process to provide the eventual buyer with confidence around the customer pipeline and the sustainable nature of revenue generated during the COVID-19 pandemic.

G4S ultimately presented a compelling proposition which the shareholders were keen to progress.


The Grant Thornton team did a fantastic job in supporting us through this transaction due to their knowledge of the security industry and proven track record in the sector. The team’s dedication and expertise added value from start to finish, from selecting the right partner for our business, effectively negotiating the terms of the deal and subsequently driving the transaction through to a successful conclusion. I would highly recommend them to all those in the sector.
