The Company is involved in litigation and similar claims incidental to the conduct of its business.

Such accruals are based on information known about the matters, management's estimate of the outcomes of such matters and experience in contesting, litigating and settling similar matters. In management's opinion, none of the pending actions are likely to have a material adverse impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations. The Company accrues and expenses legal fees related to loss contingency matters as incurred.

Asset Purchase Agreement

On June 17, 2020, the Company acquired certain contracts for the provision of alarm monitoring and related services (the "Accounts") as well as the related accounts receivable, intellectual property and equipment inventory of Protect America, Inc. The Company paid approximately $16,600,000 at closing and will make 50 subsequent monthly payments ("Earnout Payments") consisting of a portion of the revenue attributable to the Accounts, subject to adjustment for Accounts that are no longer active. The transaction was accounted for as an asset acquisition with the cost of the assets acquired recorded as of June 17, 2020 and an estimated liability for the Earnout Payments of approximately $86,000,000. The Earnout Payments liability was estimated based on the terms of the payout and the forecasted attrition of the Protect America subscriber base. The current portion of the Earnout Payments liability is included in current Other accrued liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and the long-term portion of the Earnout Payments is included in non-current Other liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The monthly Earnout Payments are classified as Cash flows from financing activities on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.
