|Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]|
Fox Pest Control Acquisition
On April 1, 2023, the Company acquired 100% of FPC Holdings, LLC (“Fox Pest Control”, or "Fox"). As part of funding the Fox Pest Control acquisition, on April 3, 2023, the Company borrowed incremental amounts under the Credit Agreement of $305.0 million. The proceeds were used to pay cash consideration at closing.
Management believes that the acquisition will expand the Rollins family of brands and drive long term value given Fox's attractive financial profile and complementary end market exposure.
The Fox Pest Control acquisition has been accounted for as a business combination, and the Fox results of operations are included in the Company's results of operations from the April 1, 2023, acquisition date. Fox contributed revenues of $81.0 million and net earnings of $1.9 million from April 1, 2023, through the period end date, September 30, 2023.
The valuation of the Fox Pest Control acquisition was performed by a third-party valuation specialist under our management’s supervision. The preliminary values of identified assets acquired, and liabilities assumed for Fox Pest Control are summarized as follows (in thousands).
The Company purchased Fox Pest Control for $339.5 million. Included in the total consideration are cash payments of $302.8 million made upon closing, contingent consideration valued at $28.0 million that is based on Fox Pest Control's financial performance in the twelve months following acquisition, and holdback liabilities valued at $8.7 million to be held by the Company to settle indemnity claims and working capital adjustments. The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation. During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recognized a charge of $2.1 million related to adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration resulting from the acquisition of Fox. This charge is reported within sales, general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statement of income.
Acquired customer contracts are estimated to have a remaining useful life of 7 years. The acquired trademarks and tradenames are expected to have an indefinite useful life. See Note 6. Goodwill and Intangible Assets for further details.
Goodwill from this acquisition represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets of the business acquired. The factors contributing to the amount of goodwill are based on strategic and synergistic benefits that are expected to be realized. The recognized goodwill is expected to be deductible for tax purposes. Valuations of certain assets and liabilities, including intangible assets and goodwill, as of the acquisition date have not been finalized at this time and are provisional.
