Terminix Announces Acquisition of Diversified Exterminators

The Pest Control Leader Expands Presence in Hawaii

MEMPHIS, TN - (Marketwired - March 13, 2015) - Terminix®, the leading provider of termite and pest control services in the United States, today announced the acquisition of the assets of Diversified Exterminators, a residential and commercial pest control company specializing in fumigation services on the Hawaiian Islands.

Diversified Exterminators, headquartered in Honolulu, was established by the late Mohinder Maan in 1972 and is the largest locally-owned pest control company on Oahu. The company's workforce is well-known for providing customers with timely service and solutions for the treatment of termites, ants, fleas, rodents, birds, cockroaches and unique pests native to the state.

"The acquisition of Diversified Exterminators expands our already strong footprint on the Hawaiian Islands," said Bill Derwin, president of Terminix. "We continually search for companies that mirror our focus on excellent customer service, professionalism and the potential for growth. We're pleased to welcome this strong company to the growing Terminix family."

Terminix has seen substantial growth in Hawaii since entering the state in the 1940s. With the Diversified Exterminators purchase, Terminix now operates a total of seven branches across the islands. The acquisition is part of Terminix's strategy to expand its footprint and increase penetration in North America. Company officials said it will not have a material impact on its first-quarter or full-year 2015 financial results.
