That would leave about $5bn to be funded through debt. The group has a couple of months to round up the investment, the person said.ISS’s main peers are UK security services group G4S, French catering and services company Sodexho SA, UK catering services provider Compass Group and Swedish security services company Securitas AB.Apax declined to comment. EQT and Goldman Sachs were not immediately available for comment.
