(Reuters) - ADT Corp Chief ..., 16 Feb 2015 [cached]
(Reuters) - ADT Corp Chief Executive Officer Naren Gursahaney expects the home security company to increase its subscriber base in North America this fiscal year, excluding acquisitions, for the first time since it was spun off from Tyco International Plc more than two years ago.
"We have been in a net customer loss position through last year," Gursahaney told Reuters in an interview. "We are closing that gap, and we expect this year to be able to turn the tide there."
Gursahaney outlined other steps he will take to protect ADT's 25 percent share of the professionally monitored home security market, including launching a new television and digital advertising campaign on Monday.
ADT is under pressure from telecommunication companies such as AT&T Inc seeking to make inroads into home security and do-it-yourself products that allow homeowners to install their own monitoring.
"It’s not just defend, but defend and grow," Gursahaney said. "I’m not happy with only 25 percent market share."
ADT has plenty of skeptics. About 23 percent of its shares outstanding are held as short positions, according to Thomson Reuters data, meaning a huge number of shareholders are betting the stock will fall as ADT loses ground to internet-enabled rivals.
The skepticism seems to reflect "more of the cloud of what could happen," Gursahaney said.
"The only way we address the shorts is by continuing to execute every single day, every month, every quarter," he added.
"We never had to do that in the past because we were the clear leader and the most well-known brand," Gursahaney said.

"The trends from the second half of last year continue and we are off to a strong start to the year, highlighted by double digit gross subscriber growth and attrition reaching its lowest levels since we became a public company over two years ago," said Naren Gursahaney, ADT's chief executive officer.
As a partner of choice, we believe that ADT is in the right place - at the right time - with the right platform, services and products to make homes both smart and safe," Gursahaney added.
