| August 16, 2013

MEMPHIS, Tenn. and TORONTO, Ont., Canada — Terminix announced its entry into the Canadian pest control market with the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Toronto-based Magical Pest Control.
 
Founded in 1997, Magical Pest Control is one of the largest pest control companies in Ontario, specializing in commercial accounts and the property management sector, while also treating residential customers.  Led by President Mark Joseph, the Toronto company served customers throughout Ontario and eastern Canada.  Terminix’s Toronto operations will provide commercial and residential pest control services under the Magical Pest Control name.  Under Terminix’s leadership, Joseph will continue to operate the business and work closely with the Terminix Commercial team.
 
“Our acquisition of Magical’s operations marks an important strategic opportunity to expand our business to the growing Canadian market,” said Larry Pruitt, president of Terminix, a subsidiary of ServiceMaster, one of the world’s largest residential service networks.  “Magical’s impressive focus on customer-centric service, innovation, as well as its strong commitment to its team members, made for a perfect match as we begin to establish the Terminix footprint in Canada.”
 
“When comparing companies with the resources to grow and improve Magical, our top priority was making sure our customers and our employees would be taken care of,” said Joseph.  “We have a tradition of providing exceptional service to uphold at Magical, and we were very careful to select a company that would enhance our service offerings, provide more opportunities for our associates, and maintain our tradition. We’ve found that in Terminix.”
