Ultimate Security will stay in business and continue to service ACA customers, according to the Aug. 7 release.

In the release, Kelly Bond, VP of sales and marketing for ACA, remarked, “This was one of the smoothest transactions that we’ve entered into.”

Ultimate President Richie Burns said in a prepared statement that this is a “tremendous transaction that allows us to remain in business, continue to sell accounts and provide service for all of our friends and customers.”

Bond said, “Richie has a great staff and quality accounts, and we’re looking forward to a prosperous relationship.”

Terms were not disclosed. Ron Davis, of Davis Mergers and Acquisitions Group, represented the seller.
