Terminix® Announces Acquisition of Two Canadian Pest Control Companies

The Pest Control Leader Expands Presence in Canada; Reinforces Commitment to Growth in the Country

MEMPHIS, TN - (Marketwired - March 19, 2015) - Terminix®, the leading provider of termite and pest control services in the United States, has announced the acquisitions of two more Canadian pest and wildlife control companies, Excel Pest Control and Cabot Pest Control.

Excel Pest Control was established in 1999 by Greg and Shelly Ricker and is located in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The residential, commercial and industrial pest control company is regarded for providing effective, efficient pest control and customer care. In addition to pest control, Excel offers services such as infrared building condition monitoring, insulation services, structural renovations and hygienic washroom care. Excel Pest Control was acquired by Terminix in December 2014 and services customers in Fredericton, St. John's, Moncton, Woodstock, Sussex and St. Stephen.

Cabot Pest Control was founded in 1998 by Kenneth and Kathy Pretty and is located in St. John's, Newfoundland. Cabot was acquired by Terminix in January 2015. The company, which specializes in residential and commercial pest control, also provides bird control services, commercial washroom care, odor neutralizers and home protection plans, and services customers in the agricultural, institutional, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors.

"Excel and Cabot are two more exciting additions to our continually growing business," said Bill Derwin, president of Terminix. "In our efforts to expand our presence, Canada will play an important role in our growth strategy. We focus on acquiring solid companies with high integrity, experienced technicians, and loyal, recurring, long-tenured customers. Because of that, we're pleased to welcome the teams at Cabot and Excel to Terminix."

Terminix has fostered substantial growth in Canada since 2013. These two new additions follow acquisitions of Toronto-based Magical Pest Control, Vancouver-based Care Pest & Wildlife Control and Quebec-based Groupe Cameron in the past two years. Company officials said the Excel and Cabot acquisitions will not have a material impact on its first-quarter or full-year 2015 financial results.
