Earnings Round-Up: Protection One, IASG

Security provider Protection One has announced its final year earnings for its 2005 fiscal year, saying that while it still had a net loss, it was drastically less than the net loss in 2004, when fears of bankruptcy swirled around the electronic security installer. While revenues saw little change, Protection One increased its retail recurring monthly revenue (RMR) 10 percent in 2005.

Protection One had a net loss of $29.1 million in 2005 compared to a $323.9 million loss in 2004. It had slightly less revenue — $263 million — compared to the $269.3 million it earned in 2004.

At the end of 2005, Protection One had 1,012,797 subscribers compared to 1,030,113 at the end of the previous year.
