TransUnion Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results


CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - TransUnion Holding Company, Inc. today announced results for the three and six months ended June, 30, 2014.


Second Quarter 2014 Highlights


Total revenue for the second quarter increased 8.9% compared with the second quarter of 2013. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.6%, while acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 6.5%. Key highlights include:




  • Revenue in the Interactive segment increased 11.4% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by an increase in the average number of subscribers and volume in our indirect channel.




  • Revenue in the USIS segment increased 10.1% compared with the second quarter of 2013, with increases in revenue in all platforms.




  • Excluding the impact of weakening foreign currencies and acquisitions, Emerging Market revenue increased by 8.2% compared with the second quarter of 2013.




  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $101.7 million, an increase of 7.7% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by broad-based revenue growth. 




  • On May 20, 2014, TransUnion acquired an additional 7.5% equity interest in Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited ("CIBIL"), increasing our ownership interest to 55%, resulting in consolidation of the results of operations of CIBIL as part of our International segment.






"In the second quarter, we generated strong revenue growth across all business segments driven by healthy organic growth in our International and Interactive segments and revenue from our recent acquisitions of eScan, TLO, and CIBIL, which are performing well and exceeding expectations," said Jim Peck, TransUnion's president and chief executive officer. "We are very excited about our majority stake in CIBIL, India's leading credit information company. Over the past 13 years, we have established a leading analytics and decisioning business in India and now we can further build on this foundation and better position one of our fastest growing and most dynamic markets for continued success. In addition, we have begun the implementation of the first phase of our technology upgrade and are already experiencing the benefits in terms of innovation, operational efficiency and a reduction in costs."


Second Quarter 2014 Results


The Company reported revenue of $327.5 million, an increase of 8.9% compared with the second quarter of 2013. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.6%. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 6.5%.


Operating income was $32.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared with $39.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to an increase in depreciation and amortization associated with our recent acquisitions, an acceleration of $10.2 million of fees for a data matching service contract that we have terminated and in-sourced as part of the upgrade to our technology platform; integration costs associated with our recent acquisitions; and restructuring charges that will help drive long term earnings growth, partially offset by the increase in revenue. Excluding the fee acceleration for the data matching service contract, Adjusted Operating Income was $42.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared with $44.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted Operating Income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 included additions of $5.2 million, including a loss on the disposal of a small operating company in our International segment and a tax expense related to prior years that was recorded in our USIS segment and in Corporate.


Non-operating income was $1.8 million, compared with a non-operating expense of $47.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 results include a net gain of $32.7 million resulting from the early redemption of the 11.375% notes and credit facility refinancing and a gain of $21.7 million resulting from re-measuring our previously held equity interest in CIBIL under the accounting guidance for acquisitions achieved in stages, along with an impairment charge of $4.5 million related to a cost-method investment that has sold its assets and is in the process of liquidating, among other items. Net income attributable to the Company was $17.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared with a net loss of $7.8 million for the second quarter of 2013.


Adjusted EBITDA1 was $101.7 million, an increase of 7.7% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by broad-based revenue growth. 


Segment Highlights


U.S. Information Services (USIS)


Total USIS revenue was $206.8 million, an increase of 10.1% compared with the second quarter of 2013.




  • Online Data Services revenue was $140.1 million, an increase of 6.1% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by our acquisition of TLO and slight increase in online credit report volume.




  • Credit Marketing Services revenue was $32.4 million, an increase of 4.9% compared with the second quarter of 2013, due primarily to an increase in demand for custom data sets and archive information in the insurance market.




  • Decision Services revenue was $34.3 million, an increase of 37.2% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by revenue from our acquisition of eScan Data Systems and other increases in the healthcare market.






Operating income for USIS was $26.5 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared with $37.3 million for the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to an acceleration of $10.2 million of fees for a data matching service contract that we have terminated and in-sourced as part of the upgrade to our technology platform; integration costs associated with our recent acquisitions; and restructuring charges that will help drive long term earnings growth, partially offset by the increase in revenue.


International
