Protection 1 expects to use the net proceeds from the Offering, after deducting estimated fees and expenses, in connection with the previously announced merger agreement pursuant to which The ADT Corporation (NYSE:ADT) has agreed to be acquired by an affiliate of certain funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, "Apollo") and merged with Protection 1, with ADT surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Prime Security Services Borrower, LLC.

In the Concurrent Offering, the Notes are being offered only to accredited investors and qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from registration requirements or a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act or any state securities laws.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
