Rollins, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2020 Business Update

- Q2 2020 presented multiple record setting days for residential pest control sales growth

- Anticipated Q2 residential pest control revenue growth in high single to low double digits

ATLANTA, July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rollins, Inc. (NYSE: ROL), a premier global consumer and commercial service company, provided a business update regarding second quarter 2020 financial results.

Rollins anticipates revenue growth for the quarter to reach low to mid-single digits over revenues for the second quarter of 2019, while residential pest control revenues are anticipated to reach high single to low double digit growth over revenues for the second quarter of 2019. While we experienced challenges in our commercial pest control business during the quarter, as pockets of the economy begin to recover, we have been encouraged by improvement in parts of our commercial pest control business. Our new service line, VitalClean™ disinfectant cleaning service, has been a contributor to this improvement.

Growth in our new residential pest control customers has been attributed to Rollins' experiencing multiple record setting sales days during the second quarter in the Covington, Georgia call center.

Eddie Northen, Rollins Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer stated, "There are still more unknowns than knowns for the future; however, for the second quarter we have seen strong improvement in our residential service line accompanied by appropriate cost containment for our revenue levels."
