Annual Recurring Revenue
The total revenue (i.e. money you receive) each year from subscribers (customers who are signed up to continue to pay next year as well). The money might be collected daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly. Not to be confused with "Accounting Rate of Return", or "Average Rate of Return" which are both concerned with ROI. See also: What pirates say: Arr! and Monthly Recurring Revenue.
