TELUS Acquires AlarmForce in Canada

TELUS Acquires AlarmForce Operations in Western Canada and Welcomes 39,000 AlarmForce Customers
in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan

Acquisition supports TELUS’ commitment to connect homes and businesses in Western Canada to the gigabit-enabled
PureFibre optic network

TELUS announced that it has acquired all of the customers, assets and operations of AlarmForce Industries Inc. (AlarmForce) in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. AlarmForce is a Canadian leader in home security, monitoring and personal emergency response systems (PERS). BCE Inc. (Bell) announced its agreement to acquire AlarmForce in November 2017, and the deal is now formally closed. TELUS has purchased the western operations of AlarmForce from Bell for approximately $66.5 million, representing a proportionate share of the value of the Bell transaction.

TELUS looks forward to welcoming western AlarmForce customers to the TELUS family and to integrating all B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan based AlarmForce employees and contractors into the TELUS team.

TELUS has been at the forefront of innovation in technology by connecting homes and businesses in more than 100 communities in Western Canada to the TELUS PureFibre network. TELUS’ gigabit-enabled fibre optic network equips premises with the fast speeds and large capacity they need as more devices in the smart and connected home require a connection to the Internet. TELUS Health is a leader in transforming the Canadian healthcare industry, and empowers Canadians to take control of their health and the health of their loved ones with the right information, tools and support they need both at home and on the go. This acquisition offers TELUS a unique opportunity to leverage TELUS’ robust fibre and wireless networks and expertise to continue to enhance connected home, business, security and health services for their customers.

In the coming months, TELUS will announce more details on its home security solutions as a component of its broadband enabled connected home strategy.
