Sandwich Isle Acquired by Terminix

Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, based in Pearl City, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, was acquired by Terminix on August 2, 2016. For Terminix, the acquisition represents an important expansion on the Hawaiian Islands. Sandwich Isle was founded in 1997 by Michael Botha, and under Botha’s leadership has grown to become the largest independently owned pest control company in Hawaii. The Company services both residential and commercial customers throughout Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, and the Big Island.

Quoted Botha, “I’ve interacted with Terminix leaders on industry affairs for many years. We chose to sell to them because of their commitment to our people and customers. We have a long history of providing exceptional service at Sandwich Isle, and we wanted to find a company that would strengthen our service offerings, provide more opportunity for our employees, and continue the high level of service our customers deserve and expect.”

Tullius represented and acted as exclusive financial advisor to Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions.


  • “Especially in today’s market, selling your business can be a life changing event.  Choosing a winning team to represent your company in this important event is key to receiving the best possible outcome.  Lance and his team far exceeded my expectations by achieving a multiple that was 25% higher than my best expectation.  It was a pleasure to work with Lance’s high performance and attentive team throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend Tullius more highly.”

    Michael Botha Former President, Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions.
  • “Selling your business is complex and comprehensive.  Lance Tullius and his team paved the road for what became a very successful transaction.  They guided us through every step with candid and sound counsel.  I’m happy to say that in addition to having become a trusted confidante of mine, I’m happy to call Lance a friend as well.”
