Shares in the business dipped in early trading on Thursday despite it hailing a ‘strong performance’.
As vaccinations across the world gather pace and restrictions are lifted in the United States as well as in Europe, its core pest control services are re-emerging as the company's main performance driver. During the pandemic's peak last year, Rentokil's pest control division was hit from businesses being shut, and the company focused on expanding its hygiene segment to more countries as the health crisis prompted demand for cleaning products and services. "We have delivered a strong performance from our core businesses in the quarter and are confident of sustaining this momentum for the remainder of the year," Chief Executive Officer Andy Ransom said.
The group has seen demand for hygiene and cleaning services rocket amid the pandemic.
