The National Bank of Denmark has sold its stake in Bankernes Kontantservice (BKS), a cash handler formed in 2010 after a series of high-profile robberies.

Cash-handling company Loomis revealed today (August 19) that it has agreed to acquire a 100% stake in the Copenhagen-based firm, valuing the enterprise at approximately Dkr250 million ($38 million). Loomis already has operations in Denmark and, in a statement, it said the move would allow it to expand its "customer portfolio".
