M&A Strategy Helps Push ADS Security RMR Mark to Over $4M
ADS serves more than 100,000 residential and commercial customer sites spread over 25 branch locations throughout the southeastern United States.
ADS achieved this mark in 2018 “through strong organic growth driven by a focus on providing legendary service and by maintaining a large acquisition pipeline,” the announcement states. The company acquired eight companies in 2018, surpassing its previous record of seven acquisitions in 2016.
After its inception in 1990, ADS achieved $2 million in RMR in 2012 and now has doubled that monthly revenue in about a quarter of the time. ADS’ $4 million in RMR is made up of more than 100,000 residential and commercial customer sites spread over 25 branch locations throughout the southeastern United States.
“2018 was the best year in ADS’s history,” John Cerasuolo, president and CEO, says. “We have built a strong culture and team of people who care about providing legendary service to our customers and to the security company owners we acquire. We are not slowing down and expect 2019 to be another record-setting year.”
Here are the deals the company completed in 2018:
- Delta Security Systems and Wilson Alarm Co.
- Alarm One
- Systems By Design
- The Alarm Co.
- RTC Secure
- Mid America Security Systems
- A-Sonic Guard
ADS, based here, was established in 1990. The company operates a UL-Listed monitoring center and offers a full range of intrusion, fire alarm, video surveillance, access control and automation systems.
