Selling Your Pest Control Business – Acquisitions & Mergers

Viking Pest Control has been serving customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland’s Eastern Shore for over 40 years. Viking has continued to dedicate ourselves to superior service quality and attracting the best people to join our team. In 2017, Viking Pest was acquired by the Anticimex Group. Since that time, we have had the privilege of completing M&A transactions and welcoming over 15 other pest management businesses to our team. In each case, we identified cultural alignment through a deep commitment to quality and the needs of the customer and employees. You can acquaint yourself with our approach to M&A on this page where you will meet some people who have sold their businesses to us and how satisfied they feel about having made such a move.

Viking Pest Control Process for Mergers & Acquisitions

Viking Pest Control is looking for businesses that are interested in selling their pest management business. If you are considering selling your business, we have a streamlined process consisting of three steps: Origination, Execution, and Integration.
Origination
Step 1
Origination

While maintaining the utmost confidentiality, we will determine if the company and its employees will fit well with Viking Pest Control. During this phase we aim to learn about your business model, priorities, corporate culture, and employees. You can expect to learn more about Viking and our business practices so you can gauge if we are the right partner for you. The objectives of a potential acquisition will also be disclosed.

If we agree to move forward from this phase we will prepare a non-disclosure agreement, a letter of intent, and a high-level standardized information request (formulated by Viking Pest Control)

Execution
Step 2
Execution

In this phase (2-4 months) we conduct an in-depth analysis of the business and agree on transition documentation You can expect an in-depth analysis, which includes due diligence by third party advisors. They identify key risks and mitigations as well as areas of improvement that are essential to the business's success and plan for integration. You can expect an in-depth analysis, which includes due diligence by third party advisors. They identify key risks and mitigations as well as areas of improvement that are essential to the business's success and plan for integration. We expect to understand the value of your business, including the employees and customers. In this phase we will also collaborate on the future organizational structure. After completing satisfactory due diligence, we will agree on detailed transaction documents and will complete the legal acquisition through payment of purchase price and transfer of shares or assets.

Integration
Step 3
Integration

In this phase (6-12 months) we structure an integration plan that retains the value in the acquired business. You can expect Viking Pest Control to initiate the integration process as quickly as possible with the main priority being a smooth transition. Integration includes onboarding employees by introducing our company culture, operational model, and SMART technology. The goal is always ensuring that what works well continues working while acting on areas needing improvement. We encourage sellers to remain with the business after the integration. Most sellers choose to stay on board and become part of Viking Pest Control and for us that means we selected a business with a good cultural match and strong leadership.
