PHILADELPHIA - The Potomac Pest Control Group has compiled nine regional webinars into a one video now available to all owners and executives in the pest control industry. Supernova explores pest control company valuations past, present and future. With pest control company valuations up over 300% in the last five years, changes are on the horizon. In this presentation Paul Giannamore, managing director at Potomac, discusses how global economic trends have changed and what we can expect for valuations and M&A in the future.
Senior executives and M&A directors of the largest pest control companies in the world, as well as former owners who have sold their businesses joined the conversation to share their thoughts on valuation and M&A. Guests included Alex Nigh (Rentokil), Matt Whiting (Rollins), David Billingsly (Anticimex), Shane Hoy (Pro Pacific), Bill Talon (Turner Pest), Kyle Varona (formerly Fahey Pest and Lawn), Mike Schmitt (American Pest, former Head of M&A at Anticimex North America), Tony Sfreddo (formerly Triple S Services), Jim McHale (JP McHale Pest Management), Paul Bergmann (Viking Pest), Mike Givlin (Certus), Andrew Klein (Terminix), and Jay Brown (Terminix).
Schmitt shared his opinion that “high quality assets will continue to garner high valuations…even if there is a market correction, they will still garner market premiums. It's sort of your average business that's really going to see that change from trading at two, maybe even three times revenue…back to mean reversion of one-times revenue.”
