Rollins, Inc. (NYSE:ROL), a premier global consumer and commercial services company, reported strong unaudited financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
The Company recorded third quarter revenues of $583.7 million, an increase of 4.9% over the prior year's third quarter revenue of $556.5 million. Rollins' reported net income of $79.6 million or $0.24 per diluted share for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $44.1 million or $0.13 per diluted share for the same period in 2019. Adjusted net income* for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $86.3 million or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income* of $70.6 million or $0.22 per diluted share for the same quarter in 2019.
Rollins' revenues rose 7.6% for the first nine months of 2020 to $1.625 billion compared to $1.509 billion for the prior year. Net income for the first nine months of 2020 was $198.2 million or $0.60 per diluted share compared to $152.6 million or $0.47 per diluted share for the same period last year. Adjusted net income* for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $204.9 million or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to $179.2 million or $0.55 per diluted share for the same period last year.
The Company's profit improvement came primarily from the continuation of cost containment efforts implemented at the onset of the pandemic, Rollins ongoing routing and scheduling enhancements, and lower fuel prices. The increased spending on personal protective equipment and new health screening initiatives partly offset our cost savings initiatives.
With many people quarantined or working from home, we continue to see strong residential revenue growth. This has helped to offset the negative impact the pandemic has had on our commercial customers. After its launch this year, we are growing our new VitalClean sanitation services that help businesses reopen while protecting their employees and customers.
As announced in a press release on August 18, 2020, the Company's Chairman of the Board, R. Randall Rollins, passed away. Per the stock compensation plan, Mr. Rollins' restricted stock grants vesting was accelerated, resulting in a one-time non-cash expense of $6.7 million.
Gary W. Rollins, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rollins, Inc. stated, "The loss of Randall is felt profoundly, not only by our family, his friends and me personally, but also by a multitude of Rollins' employees and colleagues who had the privilege of knowing him during his over 70 years of contribution to the Rollins companies. He exemplified the principles of integrity, innovation and dedication instilled by our father O. Wayne Rollins"
*Adjusted amounts presented in this release are non-GAAP financial measures. See the appendix to this release for a discussion of non-GAAP financial metrics including a reconciliation of the most closely correlated GAAP measure.

Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has used the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS in today's earnings release. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
The Company uses adjusted net income and adjusted EPS as a measure of operating performance because it allows it to compare performance consistently over various periods without regard to the impact of the accelerated stock vesting expense and pension settlement losses.
A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented.
Set forth below is a reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS with net income, the most comparable GAAP measures.
