TransUnion Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results


CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - TransUnion Corp. ("TransUnion" or the "Company") today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012(1).


Second Quarter 2012 Highlights



  • Total revenue increased 10.0%; weakening foreign currencies accounted for a reduction in revenue of 2.1%. 

    • Revenue in USIS Online Data Services increased 10.8%, driven by an increase in credit report volumes.

    • Revenue in USIS Decision Services increased 20.3%, driven by strong performance in Healthcare and Financial Services, and the integration of Financial Healthcare Systems (FHS). 

    • Revenue in International emerging markets increased 8.8%, driven by organic growth and the acquisitions of Crivo in Brazil and Credit Reference Bureau (CRB) in Africa.

      • Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a reduction in emerging markets revenue of 14.4%. 

      • Acquisitions accounted for 16.1% of emerging markets revenue growth.



    • Revenue in the Interactive segment increased 21.4%, driven by growth in the direct and indirect channels.



  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $100.0 million, an increase of 9.6% compared to the second quarter of 2011. The corresponding margin was 35.3%, 10 basis points below the prior year primarily due to planned integration costs, the impact of foreign currency and investments in growth.

  • During the quarter the Company closed the acquisition of an 85% ownership interest in CRB.

  • During the quarter TransUnion Holding Company, Inc. ("TransUnion Holding") acquired 100% of the outstanding common stock of the Company. TransUnion Holding is owned 49.5% by affiliates of Advent International Corporation, 49.5% by affiliates of GS Capital Partners and 1% by members of management.


"Our positive momentum continued in the second quarter behind strong core business performance, the benefit of recent investments and positive macroeconomic trends in the U.S.," said Bobby Mehta, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. "In addition, we finalized the acquisition of CRB in Africa. CRB expands our credit bureau and collections presence into seven new African countries and enhances our premier position as the largest player in one of the fastest growing regions of the world. It also enhances our ability to support the expansion plans of our customers in South Africa."


1 To facilitate comparability with the prior year periods, the attached financial statements combine Successor and Predecessor information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. We present the combined information to assist readers in understanding and assessing the trends and significant changes in our results of operations on a comparable basis. We believe this combined presentation is appropriate because it provides a more meaningful comparison and more relevant analysis of our results of operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, compared to the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, than a presentation of separate historical results for the Predecessor and Successor periods would provide. See our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a presentation of Predecessor and Successor financial statements.

Second Quarter 2012 Results


The Company reported revenue of $283.3 million, an increase of 10.0% compared to the second quarter of 2011. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a reduction in revenue of 2.1%. Acquisitions accounted for 2.6% of revenue growth in the second quarter.


The operating loss of $28.8 million in the second quarter, compared to operating income of $60.5 million in the prior year, was impacted by $90.3 million of accelerated stock-based compensation and related expenses ("2012 Change in Control Transaction related expenses") resulting from the acquisition of TransUnion Corp. by TransUnion Holding on April 30, 2012 (the acquisition and related transactions being referred to herein as the "2012 Change in Control Transaction"). Excluding these items, Adjusted Operating Income was $61.5 million, down $5.3 million compared to the prior year primarily due to $14.2 million of incremental depreciation and amortization resulting from the 2012 Change in Control Transaction purchase accounting adjustments to record tangible and intangibles assets at fair value ("purchase accounting depreciation and amortization").


Additionally, non-operating income and expense in the second quarter of 2012 included $20.1 million of expenses primarily related to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction and the abandoned initial public offering process.
