footprint in the U.S. is an important part of our growth plan, because it strengthens

our domestic reach.”

Chief Operating Officer, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, Inc. “Additionally,

this expands our national footprint into the country’s fastest growing commercial

market; enabling us to grow our national account support structure.”

       A-1 Security has an exemplary 25-year service history in Las Vegas and

throughout Nevada. Last year, Security Dealer Magazine (SDM) ranked A-1

Security as the 45th largest security company in the U.S. based on total revenue

and 69th in total recurring monthly revenue (RMR). “We are proud and eager to

continue providing quality service to the over 8,000 A-1 Security customers doing

business throughout the state of Nevada,” continued Byerly.

       Commenting on the acquisition, Bud Wulforst, President of A-1 Security,

stated “Building and operating successful businesses has always been my passion.

As the new President of the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), I now have

the opportunity to apply my passion to the alarm industry overall.”

       “Having Stanley Convergent Security Solutions acquire A-1 Security gives me

the peace of mind knowing that my customers and employees will be taken care of

with the highest level of service and responsiveness,” continued Wulforst.

       According to Howard Wulforst, Chief Operating Officer of A-1 Security,

“Having grown up in the alarm business, I know the importance of responsive

customer service and having local employees to deliver that service. I am very
