Orkin Establishes Franchise in Hainan Island

Pest control leader opens second franchise in China

Rollins Inc., a nationwide consumer services company (NYSE: ROL), announced today

that the company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Orkin, has established an

international franchise in Hainan Island in the People’s Republic of China. This

marks the company’s 20th international franchise worldwide.

“We are pleased that we have established our second franchise in China,” said Tom

Luczynski, Orkin vice president of U.S. and international development and franchising

and technical support. “Hainan Island, China’s second largest island, is recognized

for its tropical rainforests and beautiful beaches, making it a popular holiday

destination. The tropical wet, warm weather in Hainan Island also creates unique

pest control situations and challenges, so our customers there will benefit from

Orkin’s long history of service.”

Orkin Hainan Island will offer commercial pest control, focusing mainly on the vast

hospitality sector located there. The principal franchise owner, Wu Wentao, is also

the owner of pharmaceutical companies. His franchise partners are Wen Changyun,

Li Yuanzhou and Zhu Rouyu. Mr. Wu’s wife, Wu Wenping, will be the managing director

of the franchise operation.

Franchise employees have already travelled to Atlanta, Orkin’s U.S. headquarters,

for initial training at the company’s award-winning training center.

Orkin established its first China franchise in Shanghai in March 2011.
