  • Adjusted EBITDA of $140 million, an increase of 11 percent (14 percent on a local currency basis1) compared with the third quarter of 2014

TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Total revenue was $389 million, an increase of 15 percent (18 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the third quarter of 2014. The net loss attributable to TransUnion was $4 million compared with a net loss attributable to TransUnion of $3 million in the third quarter of 2014. Diluted earnings per share was $(0.02) flat compared with the third quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA was $140 million, an increase of 11 percent (14 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the third quarter of 2014, as the increase in revenue was partially offset by investments in the business to drive future growth and more efficient operations. Adjusted Net Income was $56 million, an increase of 41 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share was $0.30 compared with $0.27 in the third quarter of 2014.

"We delivered another quarter of double-digit revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth, driven by broad-based, organic growth in all segments on a local currency basis," said Jim Peck, TransUnion's president and chief executive officer. "We are seeing strong business and consumer demand for our core offerings and new, innovative solutions across our verticals, channels and geographies. This robust performance is enabling further investments in key strategic growth and productivity initiatives that will drive diversified top-line growth and long-term operating leverage. We expect a strong finish in the fourth quarter to cap off what has been a very good year."

Segment Highlights

U.S. Information Services (USIS)

Total USIS revenue was $244 million, an increase of 14 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014, driven by double-digit revenue growth across all platforms. Online Data Services revenue was $159 million, an increase of 11 percent, driven primarily by an increase in credit report volumes. Marketing Services revenue was $40 million, an increase of 12 percent, due primarily to an increase in demand for custom data sets and archive information driven by demand for new solutions and revenue from acquisitions. Decision Services revenue was $45 million, an increase of 27 percent, due primarily to revenue growth in the healthcare and insurance markets and revenue from acquisitions.

Operating income was $47 million, an increase of 36 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted Operating Income was $87 million, an increase of 9 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. The increase in Adjusted Operating Income was due primarily to the increase in revenue along with savings enabled by the initiative to transform our technology platform, partially offset by investments in key strategic growth initiatives and additional depreciation and amortization.

International

International revenue was $69 million, flat compared with the third quarter of 2014. On a local currency basis, International revenue increased 17 percent. Developed markets revenue was $25 million, an increase of 2 percent (15 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the third quarter of 2014. Emerging markets revenue was $44 million, a decrease of 1 percent (increase of 18 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the third quarter of 2014.

Operating income was $8 million, a decrease of 7 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted Operating Income was $19 million, a decrease of 10 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. On a local currency basis, Adjusted Operating Income increased 5 percent.2 The increase in local currency revenue was offset by investments in cost management initiatives to drive operating efficiencies and long-term margin expansion, along with additional depreciation and amortization.

Consumer Interactive

Consumer Interactive revenue was $80 million, an increase of 37 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014, driven by an increase in revenue from both the direct and indirect channels.

Operating income was $32 million, an increase of 68 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted Operating Income was $34 million, an increase of 51 percent compared with the third quarter of 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents were $129 million at September 30, 2015 and $78 million at December 31, 2014.

Total debt, including the current portion of long-term debt, decreased to $2.2 billion at September 30, 2015 compared with $2.9 billion at December 31, 2014. On July 15, 2015, the Company used the proceeds from the Senior Secured Term Loan A together with the net IPO proceeds to redeem all of the outstanding 9.625% and 8.125% Senior Notes, including unpaid accrued interest and an early redemption premium.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, cash provided by operating activities was $206 million compared with $110 million for the same period ended 2014, due primarily to the increase in revenue along with a decrease in cash paid for interest. Cash used in investing activities was $118 million compared with $165 million for the same period ended 2014, due to lower acquisition activity and lower capital expenditures. Capital expenditures were $96 million compared with $118 million for the same period ended 2014. Total capital expenditures are expected to be lower in 2015 than 2014 as the improvements to the Company's corporate headquarters are complete and investments in the initiative to transform its technology platform have decreased. Cash used in financing activities was $33 million compared to a source of cash of $49 million for the same period ended 2014, due primarily to the net pay down of debt, partially offset by the net proceeds from the IPO.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Outlook

For the fourth quarter, consolidated revenue is expected to be between $367 million and $369 million, an increase of approximately 9 to 10 percent (13 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $125 million and $127 million, an increase of approximately 8 to 9 percent (11 to 12 percent on a local currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be approximately $516 million, an increase of approximately 14 percent (16 percent on a local currency basis) compared with full year 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release presents changes in revenue on a local currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, segment Adjusted Operating Income, segment Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Earnings per Share. These are important financial measures for the Company but are not financial measures as defined by GAAP. We present these financial measures as supplemental measures of our operating performance because we believe they provide meaningful information regarding our performance and provide a basis to compare operating results between periods. In addition, our board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted EBITDA as a compensation measure. These financial measures should be reviewed in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures and are not presented as alternative measures of GAAP. Other companies in our industry may define or calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, including revenue, operating income, operating margin, effective tax rate, net income (loss) attributable to the Company, earnings per share or cash provided by operating activities. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the attached Schedules.

Local currency revenue change is defined as the percentage change in the prior year's revenue using the current year's foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to TransUnion plus net interest expense, plus (less) provision (benefit) for income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization, plus stock-based compensation, plus mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and business optimization expenses, plus technology transformation expenses, plus (less) certain other expenses (income). Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income (loss) attributable to TransUnion plus stock-based compensation, plus mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and business optimization expenses, plus technology transformation expenses, plus (less) certain other expenses (income), plus amortization of certain intangible assets, plus or minus changes in provision for income taxes. Adjusted Earnings per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted-average shares outstanding. Adjusted Effective Tax Rate is defined as adjusted provision for income taxes divided by adjusted income before income taxes. Adjusted Operating Income is defined as operating income plus stock-based compensation, plus mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and business optimization expenses, plus technology transformation expenses, plus (less) certain other expenses (income), plus amortization of certain intangible assets.
