New Report Analyzes UK Pest Control Industry

International News

The "Plimsoll Industry Analysis - Pest Control" notes that one in six UK companies could change ownership as a result of the current economic climate.

| February 15, 2010

A recent edition of the Plimsoll Analysis provides a comprehensive review yet of the UK Pest Control industry.

According to the report, one in six companies in the UK Pest Control industry could change ownership as a result of the current economic climate. With a surprising number of cash rich competitors waiting in the wings the market could be set for a prolonged period of consolidation.

David Pattison, author of the new Plimsoll Industry Analysis - Pest Control, explains, “I am sure any director worth his salt would agree that, in the current climate, there are simply too many companies chasing too little market. With many directors eyeing the exit doors and highly leveraged buyouts consigned to history for the time being it really is a buyers market out there for cash rich companies.”

Adds Pattison,”In the Plimsoll Industry Analysis we have identified 29 companies that have a sizeable cash reserve sat on their balance sheets that, due to record low interest rates, is generating nothing. These companies are now in the position to buy up large chunks of market share at rock bottom prices and make that money work for them. They must be like kids in a sweet shop at the moment - all those distressed competitors available at a fraction of their true value.”

Additionally, the report assesses each of the 193 companies in their own 2 paged section of the report. You will receive the following on each company:  

* An individual valuation  
* A full financial health assessment  
* A breakdown of the board members and ownership structure  
* A 10 point takeover attractive rating
