Allied Universal Holdco LLC -- Moody's says Allied Universal's announced acquisition of U.S. Security constrains cash flow and raises the potential for operational disruptions; no ratings impact at present

Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") today stated that the 16 July 2018 announced acquisition of U.S. Security Associates Holdings, Inc. (B3 stable) by Allied Universal Holdco, LLC (B3 negative) is a credit negative as it will likely result in continued high integration costs which will constrain cash flow generation at Allied Universal.
