Alarm.com Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALRM), the leading platform for the intelligently connected property, today announced that Vivint Inc. has notified the company that it will stop paying license fees to Alarm.com under the Patent Cross License Agreement between the companies.

Alarm.com also believes that quarterly earnings and cashflow will be impacted by the aforementioned $6 million, plus additional legal fees.

- Third quarter hardware revenue is expected to be between $82.0 million and $82.5 million.
