Tyco can barely manage their own installations - I dont see how purchasing Diebold would help.
They could pick up the customers they lost to Diebold when Diebold was over promising while laying off their most experienced crews.
iT WOULD GIVE THEM THE CASH PORTION OF THEIR PROPOSED PURCHASE OF WINCOR.
Well now, isn't this how rumors get started?
DieCo sounds about right.
Looks like there was some foundation to the rumors - just the wrong company doing the acquisition. Securitas agreed to buy Diebold Electronic Security today
New post: Securitas Buys Diebold Security NA for $350M
Most interesting element here is that Securitas is bearish on their core guard business and want to shift towards technology now.
Btw, Securitas did not sell Niscayah to Stanley, Securitas spun out (what was to become Niscayah) about 10 years ago. In 2011, there was an auction to buy Niscayah and Securitas was outbid by Stanley.
