ST. LOUIS, October 25, 2017 – Alarm Financial Services (“AFS”) has sold its portfolio of alarm monitoring accounts to a major alarm industry strategic buyer.  After the transaction, AFS will focus exclusively on growing its existing loan division which provides loans to small to medium sized alarm dealers.

Jim Wooster Jr., President of AFS said, “We have been more focused on our loan division in the last few years and decided that it was time to sell the account portfolio acquired through our legacy dealer program.  This step will allow us to streamline our operations and put all of our energy into loan opportunities.”

The Edmonds Group served as exclusive financial adviser to Alarm Financial Services.  Henry Edmonds, President said, “The father-son team of the Woosters has been active in the alarm industry for many years.  It was a privilege to help them find the right partner for this transition.”

Jim Wooster Jr. added, “We have had a unique business model in the alarm industry.  The Edmonds Group identified the best buyer for our accounts, one who will provide outstanding service to our customers and dealers and who also recognized the value of what we built over the last 30 years.”
