VIENNA, Va.—It has been a year since reports surfaced that Alarm.com owner ABS wanted to exit its investment. The wait may have been worthwhile, according to experts who spoke to Security Systems News. Now is a good time for Alarm.com, a fast-growing, market-leading provider of interactive services, to go public, they say.

AUSTIN, Texas—With an eye toward developing new technology and possible M&A activity, logistics security firm FreightWatch International announced this month a $10 million capital raise led by Bridge Investments, with help from Egis Capital and the Kroll family.

This is the first equity raise in the company's 12 years, said CEO Barry Conlon, and though it remains difficult to raise funds in this economy, "we see cargo theft really on the rise. We're seeing a demand and more and more requests for locations that we're not currently in." To meet that demand, FreightWatch need some capital to grow quickly. Conlon said to look for new locations "not in the short term, but in the middle term."
