TransUnion Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results


CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - TransUnion Corp ("TransUnion," or the "Company") today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The Company reported revenue of $257.5 million for the second quarter, an increase of 8.5 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010. Of this increase, 1.4 percent was due to the impact of strengthening foreign currencies. Operating income was $60.5 million, an increase of 49.0 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010.(1) Net income from continuing operations attributable to TransUnion Corp. for the second quarter of 2011 was $23.2 million compared to a net loss of $27.0 million for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of $50.2 million. The increases to operating income and net income from continuing operations attributable to TransUnion Corp. were primarily due to expenses incurred in the second quarter of 2010 relating to the change in control transaction.(2)


Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $91.2 million, an increase of 5.3 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010, with a corresponding margin of 35.4 percent for the second quarter of 2011 compared to 36.5 percent for the second quarter of 2010.(2)


"TransUnion continues to show revenue increases across all of our business segments," said Bobby Mehta, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Business performance in the second quarter was highlighted by growth in core financial services markets and key industry segments within USIS, the emerging markets portion of our International segment and the Interactive segment as a whole, as the demand for credit marketing and online services and consumer credit monitoring services continued to improve."

six months ended June 30, 2010, adjustments included $21.4 million of
accelerated stock-based compensation and related expenses resulting
from the change in control transaction that were recorded in each
segment and Corporate. See page 9, footnote 1, for the impact on
segment operating income for these adjustments.

(3) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a
supplemental measure of our operating performance because it eliminates
the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our
ongoing operating performance. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not
reflect our capital expenditures, interest, income tax, depreciation,
amortization, stock-based compensation or certain other income and
expense. Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA
differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative
measure. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures
calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition to its use as a measure
of our operating performance, our board of directors and executive
management team focus on Adjusted EBITDA as a compensation measure. The
annual variable compensation for certain members of our management is
based in part on Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of
financial condition or profitability under GAAP and should not be
considered an alternative to cash flow from operating activities, as a
measure of liquidity or as an alternative to operating income or net
income as an indicator of operating performance. We believe that the
most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is net income
(loss) attributable to TransUnion Corp. The reconciliation of Adjusted
EBITDA to net income (loss) attributable to TransUnion Corp. is
included in the table above.

(4) Capital expenditures for the six months ended June 30, 2011, include
$18.8 million paid in the first quarter of 2011 for assets purchased
and accrued for in the fourth quarter of 2010.
