IMPORTANT: The Treatment of Your Terminix Stock and Equity Awards

 

As we get closer to the planned merger of Rentokil and Terminix, we know you have questions about what will happen with your Terminix stock and equity awards, including stock purchased through the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), and what, if anything, you need to do with your stock or equity awards.

 

Over the next several weeks, there is a dedicated team of experts committed to getting you the information you need to understand the process for the required conversions of Terminix stock and equity awards so you can focus on the results during this exciting time.

 

The Philosophy

 

As a recipient or owner of Terminix stock and/or equity awards, we know your biggest question is likely whether or not you are at least in an equal position to where you were before the transaction, since so many things will change with your awards and stock during the conversion. Providing you with the tools where you can see your value before and after is key to understanding the process.

 

The Merger Process

 

The proposed transaction is scheduled for October 12, subject to Rentokil and Terminix shareholder approvals on October 6 and satisfaction of certain other closing conditions.

 

Calendar of Events and Communications

 

This communication about your equity awards is the first of many between now and the days following the transaction. You will receive additional emails beyond these primary communications with further details and reminders about the events and happenings within the program.

 

 

 

 

Date Communication
Week of September 12 Distribution and mailings of the Merger Proxy and Election Forms have begun. You will receive these documents from your brokerage around this time.
September 23 Today’s email includes: 1) This basic timeline, 2) a glossary linked below, 3) an infographic overview of stock treatment, and 4) FAQs you may have about the equity treatment process.
Weeks of September 19 and 26 Presentations (recorded) about the equity conversion process will be available to all teammate-shareholders.

October 1 - October 28

 

A Blackout Period will be in effect, and you will not be allowed to trade your Terminix stock until after the transaction is closed and your stock is converted to Rentokil stock (ADSs).
October 6 Deadline for Election Form. You must complete your Election Form to choose whether you would like to receive all stock consideration, all cash consideration, or a mix of both, in exchange for your Terminix stock in the merger. If you do not make an election by the election deadline, you will be deemed to have elected all stock consideration.
October 10 Rentokil ADS Valuation Measurement Date. The value of the cash and stock consideration will be officially set by using the volume weighted average price of Rentokil shares as of this date (which is based on the target transaction closing date).

October 12

 

Targeted transaction closing date. On the date of the closing the Rentokil ADSs will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Week of October 17 Individualized equity statements will be delivered to those with more than one equity type (i.e., Directors and above). Click here for an example statement.
October 27 Expected date for when new Rentokil equity will be accessible in your Morgan Stanley account and cash consideration will be available to access.

 

Your Terminix Equity Awards

 

We have developed an overview of award types and their treatment, which you can access by clicking here. This infographic shows how vested and unvested Terminix equity awards are treated. While this document is customized for Terminix teammates, you may also receive similar communications from the brokerage where your shares are held.

 

The biggest transition will be getting familiar with a new security to trade. Rentokil Initial shares are currently trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) under the ticker symbol RTO, but your new stock and the stock underlying your new awards will still trade on the NYSE, as Rentokil American depository shares (ADS) under the ticker symbol RTO. This is not a big change process-wise, but the terminology you will see is different, so we have developed this glossary for you. There are also details on the security/stock changes in this FAQ.

 

The Documents Shareholders Will Receive

 

1.Merger Proxy – A proxy statement is a required U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing that must be made when a public company seeks to obtain votes from its shareholders, such as votes to approve the merger transaction. The Merger Proxy contains important information about the merger agreement, the transaction, the merger proposal and the related agreements and transactions. All Terminix stockholders who held shares at the close of business on September 6, 2022, will have a choice of whether to vote in favor of the merger and the related compensation proposal.

2.Election Form – The ‘Election Form’ is what you fill out and return to select whether you would like your owned Terminix shares converted to Rentokil stock in the form of ADSs, or alternatively to receive cash for your Terminix shares, or a mix of both. If you do not contact your brokerage with your election or return a form by the October 6 election deadline, you will be deemed to have elected all stock consideration. Importantly, if too many Terminix shareholders elect stock or cash, then proceeds will be pro-rated among shareholders.

 

Merger Proxy Election Form

 

As a reminder, stock options and unvested RSUs are not part of the cash/stock election process. This is why there is not an option to elect to receive cash/stock for certain any equity awards under the Election Form. Instead, per the merger agreement and applicable equity award plan terms:

 

·Terminix stock options that you have which are vested will convert into a right to receive certain cash payments; and

 

·Terminix unvested stock options and RSUs that you have will convert to Rentokil RSUs or stock options and will continue to vest on the same schedule.

 

How to Complete or Return Your Election Form

 

Your TMX stock can be held in one of several types of accounts. The process for completing your Election Form varies based on where the shares you own are held. Depending on your award date, your fully vested shares are viewable in the StockPlan Connect/Shareworks platform or a Morgan Stanley Access Direct (MSAD) account. Below is a table that summarizes how you will receive the Election Form for different account types, and how to make your elections.

Important Reminders About Your Form

 

·You will likely receive both the Merger Proxy and the Election Form at about the same time, but this may vary depending on your brokerage firm.

 

·If you do not contact your brokerage firm with your election or return an Election Form by the October 6 election deadline, you will be deemed to have elected all stock consideration.

 

·If you have not received both documents by the time you receive this email, check your spam folders as some banking materials often get caught in junk folders. Otherwise, you must contact your brokerage directly. Terminix cannot send you these documents directly.

 

Where to Go for More Information

 

This is a lot of information and there is a lot more information coming. We know you’ll still have some questions. The attached FAQ and other documents are designed to be a helpful starting point. The upcoming presentations at the end of this month will also give you more information, and you will always have the ability to ask questions, by email at compensation@terminix.com. If you feel there are still things you are missing or have an unanswered question, please let us know. Other teammates may also have the same questions and we want to ensure we clarify things for our valued teammates as quickly as possible.

Forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates and expectations that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements.
