Fox Pest Control employs more than 1,300 associates and is headquartered in Logan, Utah. The Company ranks as the 13th largest pest management company according to PCT 100 rankings. Founded in 2012, Fox Pest Control has consistently grown and now provides services for residential customers across 13 states.

The acquisition of Fox Pest Control will accelerate our long-term growth strategy in new geographies across the United States,” said Jerry Gahlhoff, Jr., Rollins, Inc.’s President and CEO. “In addition to providing HomeTeam with an efficient entry point to new markets, we provide the team at Fox Pest Control with new services to offer to their existing customers,” he said. The highly complementary nature of the acquisition will provide both brands with new avenues of growth across several regions,” said Mr. Gahlhoff, Jr. Rollins, Inc.’s Executive Vice President and CFO, Kenneth Krause, added that the acquisition reflects Rollins, Inc.’s balanced approach to capital deployment. “Profitable growth continues to be the top priority in our capital allocation strategy. The strength of our balance sheet has positioned us well to continue to pursue organic and inorganic growth across our highly fragmented industry while returning cash to shareholders through our growing dividend,” he said. Mike Romney and Bryant White, the co-founders of Fox Pest Control, both commented on the reasons that they chose to partner with Rollins. “Culturally, HomeTeam was an obvious fit for Fox. Our long-standing relationship with the good people of the Rollins organization has been a blessing to our company, and we were mindful of that when pursuing this opportunity. We are excited to gain the benefits of HomeTeam’s expertise in the industry as well as its track record of excellence,” said Mike Romney. Bryant White added, “Fox and HomeTeam are aligned in the way we value people, leadership and vision. We look forward to seeing all of our team members continue to accomplish great things in their professional and personal lives.” The transaction is valued at $350 million, including $32 million of contingent payments based upon the attainment of future growth and profitability levels. The Company had annual revenues in excess of $120 million in 2022. Rollins intends to provide more information on this transaction during its first quarter earnings conference call later this month.
