Terminix to divest UK, Norway businesses as condition of Rentokil merger » 07:5605/0905/09/22
Terminix Global Holdings,…
Terminix Global Holdings, Inc. (TMX), 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 (RTOKY). 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 $60M in revenue and less than $10M in Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2022. Completion of the Divestment and the previously announced completion of the antitrust review process in the US will satisify two of the closing conditions to the Company's pending merger with Rentokil. Remaining conditions to be satisified 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.

Reports Q revenue $496M, consensus $492.8M. "We are encouraged by the positive momentum in our residential business," said Terminix CEO Brett Ponton. "Unit growth in termite and strong price realization across all channels offset expected inflationary pressures in fuel, labor and materials in the quarter. Key investments in labor and staffing levels aided the first quarter and will support growth in the coming quarters. Commercial pest continues to improve, and with strong sales and improved retention rates in the quarter, is poised for growth in the back half of the year."

Terminix reports Q4 EPS 6c, consensus 22c » 07:2003/0103/01/22
Reports Q revenue $484M,…
Reports Q revenue $484M, consensus $482.57M. "In the fourth quarter, we continued to build momentum in our residential business with improvements in digital marketing, staffing levels and pricing driving an acceleration in organic growth," said Terminix CEO Brett Ponton. "We reported double-digit organic growth in termite and home service completions, seven percent growth in termite renewals and five percent growth in residential pest control while making solid progress on the CxP and Terminix Way initiatives. Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion in the quarter was highlighted by higher revenue contribution and fleet productivity offsetting investments in labor and strategic initiatives and increased medical costs from the lingering effects of the pandemic. We also delivered meaningful progress managing termite damage claims with the lowest new claims in a quarter since 2018." "The new year is off to a strong start as we capitalize on the foundational improvements made during 2021," Ponton continued. "Our strategic growth priorities for the year remain focused on improving teammate retention to drive customer retention, improving technician cross-selling capabilities to drive customer penetration and developing our digital marketing prowess to drive increased lead generation. CxP has been deployed in our southwest region and we are targeting a full Terminix Way pilot with enhanced standard operating procedures and training protocols in both the commercial and residential service lines in the next few months. While these operational initiatives remain the focus of our customer facing teammates, the back-office is also working closely with the Rentokil team on integration planning as we progress towards an anticipated second half of 2022 merger that will significantly enhance our commercial capabilities and accelerate the progress already well underway."
