We welcome the Integrated Pest Management team and will work side by side to continue providing excellent service to our customers.”

David Damiano, President of IPM, added, “The Aust Group was great!! Deciding to sell my company, Integrated Pest Management, after 37 years was a difficult decision. It would have been overwhelming if not for The Aust Group. Initially, I considered selling my business on my own, however, after speaking with Stuart, I realized that having someone who has not only been through this process himself but understands the complexities of mergers and acquisitions is vital to getting the most competitive offer. After going through this process, I know for a fact that without the expertise of The Aust Group, we would have never made it to the finish line. The Aust Group exceeded all of our expectations. They were there every step of the way. If you are considering selling your company, call The Aust Group. I’m glad I did. It was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made!”

Stuart Aust, Principal/Founder of The Aust Group, commented, “It has been great getting to know David over the last several years and learning about the business he’s built. What a privilege it was to be his trusted advisors throughout this process. We look forward to seeing the future growth of Viking Pest Control through this acquisition.”

The Aust Group represented Integrated Pest Management as the exclusive financial advisor on the transaction. The transaction closed on March 31st, 2022, and the terms of this transaction were not disclosed. Hanse Anderson LLP acted as legal advisor to IPM.
