NEW YORK, NY – April 24, 2020 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (“ServiceMaster” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SERV).  A complaint has been filed against the Company on behalf of investors that purchased ServiceMaster common stock between February 26, 2016 and November 4, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On October 22, 2019, ServiceMaster announced disappointing preliminary financial results for the third quarter of 2019, missing both revenue and earnings estimates according to the complaint. ServiceMaster also gave downward adjusted EBITDA guidance of $415 to $425 million, down from $435 to $445 million. The Company's press release attributed the disappointing results partly to "termite damage claims arising primarily from Formosan termite activity," concentrated in Mobile, Alabama.  ServiceMaster further indicated that the Company has known about this issue since 2018 when “the company initiated mitigating actions to limit [its] future exposure. . . .”  Finally, ServiceMaster announced the sudden departure of Matthew J. Stevenson from his role as President of Terminix Residential.

Following this news, ServiceMaster's stock price fell $11.44 per share, or 20.38%, to close at $44.70 per share on October 22, 2019.
