The Potomac Company today announced the sale of its client, Liberty Pest Control, to Rentokil North America.

Founded in 1959 and operating from Albany, NY to Scranton, PA, Liberty is one of the oldest and largest pest control operations in New York’s Hudson Valley.

Potomac is pleased to have had the opportunity to advise the management and shareholders of Liberty in a competitive, strategic sale process.

Dan Tulp, President of Liberty commented on the sale to Rentokil North America: “Since our inception, exceptional customer service and innovative pest solutions has been the heart of our success. That is why we are proud and pleased to join forces in a merger with Ehrlich Pest Control, a member of the Rentokil family of companies in North America. Rentokil is a worldwide pest control business with customers. We now can provide even higher levels of service to commercial and residential customers, so we are certainly excited about what this merger means for our customers. In the Hudson Valley, Rentokil operates its primary pest control brand as Ehrlich Pest Control.”

Dan Tulp, President of Liberty commented on his experience with Potomac: “Paul Giannamore of The Potomac Company was a phenomenal advisor to Liberty. I was completely blown away with Paul’s, well… everything. I don’t have the words to say how impressed I was and still am with Paul’s sincerity and dedication to not just my project but with his dedication to me personally. I truly can’t say enough about him as a person and also at this point, a friend for life. Anyone that connects with Paul will be amazingly surprised. Paul, thank you for one of the most exhilarating moments of my life.”

Paul Giannamore and Ericka Andes of The Potomac Company acted as exclusive financial advisors to the Company along with attorney Michael Stanczyk, who has worked closely with Potomac for many years on transactions with acquirers such as Orkin, Rentokil, Arrow Exterminators and Anticimex.
