Rentokil shares hit a record high after the announcement, climbing as much as 6%.

The cash-and-stock deal involves about 643.29 million new Rentokil shares to be issued to Terminix shareholders and about $1.3 billion in cash.

The deal implies a value of $55 per Terminix share, representing a 47% premium to Monday's close. Terminix's shareholders will own about 26% of the enlarged group.

Rentokil's Chairman Richard Solomons and Chief Executive Andy Ransom will hold those same roles in the combined group.

Ransom commented on the deal, saying: “These are two highly complementary businesses with a similar operational playbook.

“We will open our first innovation centre in the US and provide our industry-leading innovations and digital technologies to a far larger customer base.”

The companies expect the transaction to close in the second half of 2022. In line with Rentokil’s undertakings to the Competition & Markets Authority, it has been reported that Terminix will dispose of its UK business prior to completion of the transaction.
