Appointment of New Director   

   

On January 18, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Terminix Global Holdings, Inc. (“Terminix” or the “Company”) expanded its directorships by one and appointed David J. Frear, 64, as a member of the Board to fill the vacancy created by the expansion.  Mr. Frear will serve as a Class I director, with his initial term expiring at the Company’s 2021 annual stockholders meeting.  Mr. Frear was also appointed to serve as a member of the Board’s Audit and Environmental, Health & Safety Committees. The Board determined, after considering all of the relevant facts and circumstances, that Mr. Frear is “independent” as defined under NYSE listing standards.    

    

No arrangements exist between the Company and Mr. Frear or any other person pursuant to which he was selected as a director.  There are no transactions in which Mr. Frear has an interest requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of SEC Regulation S-K.   

   

Mr. Frear will be entitled to participate in the Company’s publicly disclosed director compensation plans, pursuant to which he will receive an annual retainer on the same terms as the Company’s other non-employee directors.  Such director compensation plans are described in more detail in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 20, 2020 under “The Board of Directors and Corporate Governance— Director Compensation.”  

   

In connection with this announcement, Terminix issued a press release on January 19, 2021, a copy of which is being furnished hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
