Rollins (ROL) to Post Q3 Earnings: What's in the Offing?

Rollins, Inc. ROL is scheduled to report third-quarter 2020 results on Oct 28, before the bell.

The company’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the second quarter of 2020. The average trailing four-quarter surprise is 5.6%.

Expectations This Time Around

Acquisitions, customer growth and pricing are likely to have driven the company’s top line in the to-be-reported quarter, offsetting impacts of coronavirus-led general reduction in demand for services. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $574.7 million, indicating 3.3% year-over-year growth. Rollins’ revenues were up 5.6% year over year in the second quarter of 2020.

The bottom line is likely to have been positively impacted by continued enhancements in routing and scheduling initiatives. With the consensus mark pegged at 23 cents, earnings are expected to increase 4.6% year over year. Earnings improved 9.5% year over year in the second quarter of 2020.
