Are you exploring the possibility of a sale, currently in the market for acquisitions or laying the groundwork for succession planning? If so, the fifth annual PCT Mergers & Acquisitions Virtual Conference is for you.

The Aug. 23 event provides expert advice from some of the industry’s leading authorities on mergers and acquisitions and family business issues. And one of the most valuable aspects of this event is that it is virtual, meaning attendees will learn from the comfort of their home or office.

Here’s a look at the speakers and topics planned for the conference:

The State of the Mergers & Acquisitions Market: What Does the Future Hold? PCT Publisher Dan Moreland will provide an overview of the current state of the mergers and acquisitions market, as well as look at what the future may hold for PMPs interested in buying or selling a pest control business. In an M&A marketplace filled with both great opportunity and great risk, you won’t want to miss this informative market update. Speaker, Dan Moreland, PCT Media Group, Valley View, Ohio.

Key Performance Indicators That Drive the Value of Pest Control Businesses: How Do You Compare?

Speakers, Dan Gordon, owner, and John Corrigan, attorney, PCO M&A Specialists, Newton, N.J.

The Essential Role of Pest Control Employment Agreements. Paul Giannamore, managing director of the Potomac Pest Control Group, will discuss the importance of having appropriate agreements in place. Speaker, Paul Giannamore, Potomac Pest Control Group, Philadelphia, Pa.

Sales & Acquisitions for Companies With Revenues Under $2 Million. Often, PMPs managing pest control companies under the $2 million level are so absorbed with operating the business on a day-to-day basis, they have little time to strategically plan for a future sale of their business or consider possible acquisitions. It doesn’t have to be that way however, according to Rand Hollon of Preferred Business Brokers, a firm specializing in M&A activity for small- and medium-sized pest control companies. Speaker, Rand Hollon, Preferred Business Brokers, Ocala, Fla.

Attendees also will hear from representatives of the event’s platinum-level sponsors Arrow Exterminators, Rollins and Terminix, as well as gold-level sponsor Rentokil Steritech.
