The security and alarm industry is facing unprecedented pressure as valuations plummet and capital providers exit the industry. In addition, companies need to adapt their business models to rapidly changing technology, consumer demands and competitive pressures.

Many companies are approaching loan maturities with the refinancing environment severely restricted and more challenging, as traditional lenders to the security & alarm industry are exiting their positions. In addition, due to competitive pressures and the current economic conditions facing residential and commercial customers, revenues are dropping, causing defaults with loan covenants based on RMR and leverage metrics.
