FIRST QUARTER 2021 RESULTS(1)

Total revenue declined 5% year over year to $1,305 million, driven primarily by the $82 million decrease in installation and other revenue which largely reflects the non-cash impact of ownership model changes made in 2020. Monitoring and related services revenue was up $17 million or 2%, driven by an increase in recurring monthly revenue and improved customer retention. Commercial installation and other revenue increased from a year ago reflecting higher outright sales revenue.

With strong customer satisfaction and lower than normal customer relocation activity, trailing twelve-month gross customer revenue attrition remained at 13.1%. Trailing twelve-month customer revenue payback remained at 2.2 years.

The Company reported a net loss of $48 million, an improvement to prior year’s net loss of $300 million. The decrease was largely a result of lower interest expense related to swap valuation, a significant reduction in debt extinguishment costs, and lower merger and integration costs. Diluted net loss per share of common stock was $(0.06) compared to $(0.40) a year ago, and diluted net loss per share of Class B common stock was $(0.06). As detailed below, diluted net loss per share before special items was $(0.07) versus $(0.09) in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $542 million, relatively flat to the prior year, driven primarily by improved Commercial performance, partially offset by a lower volume of outright sales to residential customers.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $359 million and net cash used in investing activities was $399 million. These amounts compare to $250 million and $338 million, respectively, for the first quarter 2020. The increase in cash provided by operating activities reflects the non-recurrence of a 2020 payment related to the Defenders acquisition and the impact of lower outright sales to residential customers in 2021. The increase in investing activities reflects additional spending for dealer and bulk account purchases and subscriber system asset expenditures, partially offset by the non-recurrence of the Defenders acquisition. Net cash used in financing activities was $41 million compared to cash provided of $158 million a year ago.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $64 million, down from $173 million in the prior year period. The decrease was driven by higher subscriber acquisition costs to fund significant customer 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 from the quarter show the Company’s focus on making life safe and simple for our customers at home, at work, and on the go.

Technology and Innovation

  • Google Nest Product Integration – ADT customers can now purchase Google Nest Mini, Nest Hub, and Nest Hub Max products and have them professionally installed by ADT’s nationwide network of smart home technicians. Customers with ADT Command & Control and Blue by ADT smart home security systems can now control their systems via voice when using compatible Google Nest products. Voice control can be used for system arming and disarming, connected lights, locks, ADT thermostats, and system status queries. The integration also enables control of ADT-compatible smart devices through touch control using the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max.
  • Accelerating Innovation – ADT has a long and proud history of innovation, with a robust and growing internally-developed portfolio of patents and other valuable intellectual property, as well as the developers, engineers and other innovators who help turn ADT’s proprietary data and insights into innovative new services and products for its customers. The Company is increasing its innovation investments this year, planning an initial $50 million on next-generation solutions that will power future services, products and customer experience. With ADT-owned and developed solutions, combined with Google’s hardware and technologies, ADT aims to further differentiate itself in the eyes of consumers.

Strategic Partnerships

  • More value for customers – ADT partnered with traditional insurance companies and insurance tech companies such as Branch and Hippo, leading a new standard of care and protection for homeowners. The partnerships bring homeowners even greater ways to help save on their homeowners’ insurance and offer better protection for their life, property, family, and assets.
  • Increasing scale in our commercial business – During the first quarter, ADT Commercial continued to expand its nationwide geographic footprint with the acquisition of SAFE Electronics, Inc., based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. SAFE Electronics specializes in the system design and installation of fire alarm and suppression systems, security alarms, video surveillance, and access control for a wide range of commercial industries. Additionally, ADT Commercial became the U.S. distributor and service provider for WG Security Products. This addition enhances the electronic article surveillance (EAS) market and ADT Commercial will install and service WG Security Products’ comprehensive EAS portfolio in the U.S., including a full range of detection systems, hard tags, specialty tags, disposable labels, deactivation devices, and detachers.

Delivering for our owners

  • Cash dividend declared Effective May 5, 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 June 17, 2021. This dividend will be paid on July 1, 2021.

2021 FINANCIAL OUTLOOK (2)(3)

The Company is reaffirming its full-year 2021 guidance given in February 2021. With strong demand for our products and services, ADT is increasing spending on subscriber acquisition costs and other technology investments, which the company believes will drive full year RMR growth in the mid-teens.

_______________________

(1)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, 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. Record performance on metrics reflect measurements made since the formation of ADT Inc. in 2015.
  
(2)Guidance excludes 3G and Code-Division Multiple Access (“CDMA”) radio conversion costs. There are many variables involved in those costs, including retention levels, system upgrade rates, revenue opportunities, cost-sharing opportunities, and possible technology solutions. The Company estimates the range of net costs for this replacement program at $225 million to $300 million, of which ADT incurred $136 million through March 31, 2021. The Company incurred $59 million during the first quarter of 2021. These amounts and ranges are net of any revenue the Company collects from customers associated with these radio replacements and cellular network conversions.

Due to the Company’s residential equipment ownership model transition, the Company’s guidance includes estimated non-cash reductions in reported revenue ($350 million to $400 million) and Adjusted EBITDA ($80 million to $100 million).
  
(3)The Company is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of its updated financial outlook for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities, which are their respective corresponding GAAP measures, because these GAAP measures that are excluded from the Company’s non-GAAP financial outlook are difficult to reliably predict or estimate without unreasonable effort due to their dependence on future uncertainties, such as special items discussed below under the heading “Non-GAAP Measures—Adjusted EBITDA” and “Non-GAAP Measures—Adjusted Free Cash Flow.” Additionally, information that is currently not available to the Company could have a potentially unpredictable and potentially significant impact on its future GAAP financial results.

Beginning in the first quarter 2021, ADT has two operating and reportable segments, Consumer and Small Business (CSB) and Commercial. Selected historical and current period disclosures reflecting these segments are included below.

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 payments related to (i) net cash flow associated with 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.
