Outlook Whenever Rentokil Initial says it is doing better, I smell a rat. This is a company that has flattered to deceive for as long as I have been writing about it. A glance at yesterday's figures shows that underlying revenues are falling, it is enduring tough times in Europe, and it is trying to put in place a more efficient country-by-country operating model. So what's changed?
