SECOND QUARTER 2021 RESULTS(1)

Total revenue declined 2% year over year to $1,304 million, driven primarily by a $69 million decrease in installation and other revenue. Consumer and Small Business installation revenue declined by $109 million from a year ago, reflecting the non-cash reduction in reported revenue due to equipment ownership model changes, which was partially offset by higher Commercial installation revenue. Monitoring and related services revenue was up $42 million or 4%, driven by higher recurring monthly revenue.

Reflecting strong customer retention, trailing twelve-month gross customer revenue attrition of 13.3% increased slightly from a year ago due primarily to headwinds from the 2020 Defenders acquisition and an increase in customer relocations. Trailing twelve-month customer revenue payback remained at 2.2 years.

The Company reported a net loss of $126 million, compared to the prior year’s net loss of $107 million, as strong M&S revenue and improved Commercial performance were offset by higher year-over-year expense related to radio conversion, service, and net subscriber acquisition costs. Diluted net loss per share of common stock was $(0.15) compared to $(0.14) a year ago, and diluted net loss per share of Class B common stock was $(0.15). As detailed below, diluted net loss per share before special items was $(0.07) in both periods.

Adjusted EBITDA was $542 million, down from $563 million in the prior year, reflecting the non-cash impact of the ownership model changes, an increase in service costs, and investment in IT infrastructure and next generation technology. These items were partially offset by strong monitoring and related services revenue performance, as well as improved Commercial results.

Year to date net cash provided by operating activities was $786 million and net cash used in investing activities was $777 million. These amounts compare to $629 million and $536 million, respectively, for the first six months of 2020. The increase in cash provided by operating activities reflects the impact of lower outright sales to residential customers in 2021 and the non-recurrence of a 2020 payment related to the Defenders acquisition, partially offset by higher net payments for radio conversion costs. The increase in net cash used in investing activities reflects subscriber system asset expenditures and additional spending for dealer and bulk account purchases, partially offset by the non-recurrence of the Defenders acquisition. Net cash used in financing activities was $60 million compared to $96 million a year ago.

Year to date Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $227 million, down from $405 million in the prior year period. The decrease was driven by higher subscriber acquisition costs to fund significant growth in customers and RMR additions.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

ADT is a trusted consumer brand, driving profitable growth through innovative technology, strategic partnerships, and premium products and service. Key highlights of the Company’s performance include:

  • Continued Growth of RMR – During the quarter, Gross RMR additions increased to $14.5 million, an increase of 28% from the prior year. This growth included stronger year over year performance of ADT’s dealer network. Total U.S. Gross RMR additions have increased by double digits in each of the past four quarters. As of the end of the quarter, RMR totaled $352 million, representing a 4% year over year increase. Approximately 80% of the Company’s total revenues come from this durable recurring revenue.

  • Radio Conversions Progress – The Company continued to make significant progress in replacing the 3G and Code-Division Multiple Access (“CDMA”) cellular equipment used in many of its security systems. During the first half of 2021, the number of customer systems to be converted was reduced by 1 million. As of June 30, 2021, there were approximately 800 thousand customer systems remaining to be converted.

  • Proactively improving capital structure – Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company completed a number of transactions to proactively improve its balance sheet. In July, the Company issued $1 billion in new notes due in 2029 and plans to use the proceeds to retire its $1 billion of notes due in 2022. The Company also extended the maturity of its revolving credit facility to 2026 and upsized its capacity from $400 million to $575 million. The Company amended its consumer financing agreement on more favorable terms while aligning the facility more closely with customers’ needs, including a wider range of smart home products. Combined with other refinancing transactions in 2019 and 2020, the Company has flattened near-term maturities, improved liquidity, and reduced annual cash interest by more than $100 million.

  • Cash dividend declared – Effective August 4, 2021, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.035 per share to holders of the Company’s common stock and Class B common stock of record as of September 16, 2021. This dividend will be paid on October 5, 2021.

All variances are year-over-year unless otherwise noted. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per share before special items are non-GAAP measures. Refer to the “Non-GAAP Measures” section for the definitions of these terms and reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures. The operating metrics Gross Customer Revenue Attrition, Unit Count, RMR, Gross RMR Additions, and Revenue Payback are approximated as there may be variations to reported results in each period due to certain adjustments the Company might make in connection with the integration over several periods of acquired companies that calculated these metrics differently, or otherwise, including periodic reassessments and refinements in the ordinary course of business. These refinements, for example, may include changes due to systems conversion or historical methodology differences in legacy systems.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

To provide investors with additional information in connection with our results as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we disclose Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Net Income (Loss) before special items, and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per share before special items as non-GAAP measures. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about our operating profitability adjusted for certain non-cash items, non-routine items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future, as well as other items that are not core to our operations. Further, we believe Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of operating profitability because we use it for evaluating our business performance, making budgeting decisions, and comparing our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss adjusted for (i) interest, (ii) taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, including depreciation of subscriber system assets and other fixed assets and amortization of dealer and other intangible assets, (iv) amortization of deferred costs and deferred revenue associated with subscriber acquisitions, (v) share-based compensation expense, (vi) merger, restructuring, integration, and other, (vii) losses on extinguishment of debt, (viii) radio conversion costs, net, (ix) financing and consent fees, (x) foreign currency gains/losses, (xi) acquisition related adjustments, and (xii) other charges and non-cash items.

There are material limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account certain significant items, including depreciation and amortization, interest, taxes, and other adjustments which directly affect our net income or loss. These limitations are best addressed by considering the economic effects of the excluded items independently and by considering Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with net income or loss as calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Adjusted EBITDA discussion above is also applicable to its margin measure, which is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of monitoring and related services revenue.
Free Cash Flow

We believe that the presentation of Free Cash Flow is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about our ability to repay debt, make other investments, and pay dividends.

We define Free Cash Flow as cash flows from operating activities less cash outlays related to capital expenditures. We define capital expenditures to include accounts purchased through our network of authorized dealers or third parties outside of our authorized dealer network, subscriber system asset expenditures, and purchases of property and equipment. These items are subtracted from cash flows from operating activities because they represent long-term investments that are required for normal business activities.

Free Cash Flow adjusts for cash items that are ultimately within management’s discretion to direct, and therefore, may imply that there is less or more cash that is available than the most comparable GAAP measure. Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures since debt repayment requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures are not deducted. These limitations are best addressed by using Free Cash Flow in combination with the cash flows as calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

We define Adjusted Free Cash Flow as Free Cash Flow adjusted for net cash flows related to (i) net proceeds from our consumer receivables facility, (ii) financing and consent fees, (iii) restructuring and integration, (iv) integration related capital expenditures, (v) radio conversion costs, net, and (vi) other payments or receipts that may mask our operating results or business trends. As a result, subject to the limitations described below, Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a useful measure of our cash flow attributable to our normal business activities, inclusive of the net cash flows associated with the acquisition of subscribers, as well as our ability to repay other debt, make other investments, and pay dividends.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow adjusts for cash items that are ultimately within management’s discretion to direct, and therefore, may imply that there is less or more cash that is available than the most comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures since debt repayment requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures are not deducted. These limitations are best addressed by using Adjusted Free Cash Flow in combination with the GAAP cash flow numbers.

During the second quarter of 2020, Free Cash Flow before special items was renamed Adjusted Free Cash Flow to reflect the net cash flow associated with our consumer receivables facility, which supports our consumer financing program that launched nationally in 2020. The inclusion of the net cash flow associated with our consumer receivables facility represents the only revision to Free Cash Flow before special items.

Net Income (Loss) before special items and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per share before special items

Net Income (Loss) before special items is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for (i) share-based compensation expense, (ii) merger, restructuring, integration, and other, (iii) losses on extinguishment of debt, (iv) unrealized gains and losses on interest rate swap contracts not designated as hedges, (v) radio conversion costs, net, (vi) financing and consent fees, (vii) foreign currency gains/losses, (viii) acquisition related adjustments, (ix) other charges and non-cash items, and (x) the impact these adjusted items have on taxes.

Diluted Net Income (Loss) per share before special items is Net Income (Loss) before special items divided by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of common stock. In periods of net loss, diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of common stock does not include the assumed conversion of Class B common stock to shares of common stock as the results would be anti-dilutive.

We believe that Net Income (Loss) before special items and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per share before special items are benchmarks used by analysts and investors who follow the industry for comparison of its performance with other companies in the industry, although our measures may not be directly comparable to similar measures reported by other companies.

The limitation of these measures is that they exclude the impact (which may be material) of items that increase or decrease our reported operating income, operating margin, net income (loss), and diluted net income (loss) per share of common stock and Class B common stock. This limitation is best addressed by using the non-GAAP measures in combination with the most comparable GAAP measures in order to better understand the amounts, character, and impact of any increase or decrease on reported results.

Refer to the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Reports on Form 10-K for further discussion regarding the computation of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of common stock.
