The ADT Corporation (NYSE: ADT) today reported diluted earnings per share of $0.52 for the third quarter of 2013, and diluted earnings per share before special items of $0.53. Using the company’s cash tax rate, EPS before special items was $0.80 1.
Recurring revenue, which made up 92% of total revenue in the quarter, was up 4.2%. Recurring revenue growth was driven primarily by an increase in ending average revenue per customer, which rose to $40.08. Non-recurring revenue declined 14.8% as the company’s mix of newly installed systems continues to shift toward more ADT-owned systems, increasing deferred revenue and reducing current period installation revenue. Total revenue of $833 million increased 2.3% compared to the third quarter of 2012.
