Beginning with the fourth quarter of 2022, Alarm.com believes that quarterly SaaS and license revenue and total revenue will be impacted by approximately $6 million, or 2.8% of total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022. Alarm.com also believes that quarterly earnings and cashflow will be impacted by the aforementioned $6 million, plus additional legal fees.
