ServiceMaster (SVM) Attracting Buyout Interest - WSJ

According to reports from the Wall Street Journal, ServiceMaster (NYSE: SVM) is attracting the interest of private equity firms. Some suggest that a management-led buyout is another possibility.

According to the paper, the company's cash flows are especially attractive to buyout firms, but the company's religious-based culture could make some buyout firms uncomfortable.

ServiceMaster currently serves residential and commercial customers through a network of over 5,500 company-owned locations and franchised licenses. The Company's brands include TruGreen ChemLawn, TruGreen LandCare, Terminix, American Home Shield, InStar Services Group, ServiceMaster Clean, Merry Maids, Furniture Medic, and AmeriSpec.
