Tim's thoughts on the status of the Rentokil/Terminix deal
On Oct. 12, Rentokil Initial rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange in celebration of its acquisition of Terminix.
Notable: "I know I say this every year, but there is more interest at this PestWorld coming from financial sponsors than I've ever seen before. You've always had the big five strategics plus Arrow, Massey and others, but now you have 10, 20, 30 private equity companies that ... over the last 12-18 months are actually executing and doing deals." —Tim Mulrooney
