Rentokil has posted a rise in interim profits, driven by revenue growth across all regions.
The company said pre-tax profit rose 48.1% to £240 million as revenue grew 70% to £2.7 billion.
Chief executive Andy Ransom said: “The group enjoyed growth in every region and continued to benefit from effective pricing to manage inflationary costs.
Revenue growth was further supported by another excellent period of M&A with 24 high-quality businesses acquired for a total consideration of £202m.”
Mr Ransom continued: “We start the second half of the year with continued confidence in our plans, both operational and strategic.”
