Practical questions about your business you should know
          As you may have noticed K&K has become a bit more active in the industry’s merger and acquisition market. We will “broker” a deal if we are the attorneys for one of the parties, seller or buyer.  A current list of seller’s we are assisting are listed in The Alarm Exchange in the Merger and Acquisition category.
          Recently a seller engaged K&K and in order to properly list it on The Alarm Exchange I asked a few questions that any potential buyer of accounts would want to know.  I thought I’d share them, because these are the questions you should be able to answer without too much effort; a sign you’re on top of your business.
  *  number of accounts
  *  % residential
  *  % commercial security
  *  % commercial fire
  *  RMR for inspection or service
  *  RMR for monitoring
  *  what cs you go to
  *  how much you pay cs each month [average for all accounts]
  *  number of techs you have
  *  are employees under Employment Contract
  *  where are most of the accounts concentrated
  *  what equipment do you usually use
  *  panels?
  *  software you use?
  *  contracts?
          If you have a good idea what the answer is to these issues you know your company well.  Now all you need to do is keep an eye on what direction the account base and RMR takes, up or down.
