MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Terminix announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to divest its pest management businesses in the U.K and Norway. These businesses are being divested by Terminix as a condition to the closing of its pending merger with Rentokil Initial.
 
The Divestment is expected to close in the next 30 to 60 days, subject to limited closing conditions. Terminix expects to record a loss on the sale of these assets in the period ending June 30, 2022. Together, the two businesses were expected to generate approximately $60 million in revenue and less than $10 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2022.
 
“I want to thank the Norway and United Kingdom teams for their dedication and commitment to our Company and customers while at Terminix,” said Terminix CEO Brett Ponton. “Both businesses are well positioned in attractive pest control markets for continued growth and margin expansion under experienced new ownership. Terminix is excited to take another step forward in the pending Rentokil merger as we remain on track for completion in the second half with a targeted closing by the end of the third quarter.”
 

Completion of the divestment and the previously announced completion of the antitrust review process in the U.S. will satisfy two of the closing conditions to the company's pending merger with Rentokil. Remaining conditions to be satisfied include approval by the company’s and Rentokil’s shareholders, and the registration of Rentokil’s American depository shares with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and their listing on the New York Stock Exchange. Both parties continue to make good progress on satisfying these remaining conditions and the transaction remains on track for completion in the second half of 2022, with a targeted closing by the end of the third quarter.

Paul Giannamore and Franco Villanueva-Meyer of The Potomac Company advised Terminix on these transactions.
