Capita rejoins FTSE100


Capita, which first broke into the FTSE100 in March 2000, will replace engineering firm GKN from mid-June.

It has also announced a new six-year, £22m extension to its contract with the Driving Standards Agency. The agreement includes the continued management of hardware and software of DSA’s existing system as well as the development of a new IT system to handle the registration of new drivers.

‘With around 2,000 driving test bookings made every day, it’s essential we have an experienced and capable partner to support our IT system,’ said Gary Austin, chief executive of DSA.
