TransUnion Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

CHICAGO, May 7, 2013 – TransUnion today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. This is a combined announcement that includes consolidated financial statements for TransUnion Holding Company, Inc. (“TransUnion Holding,” and together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”) and TransUnion Corp., a direct 100% owned subsidiary of TransUnion Holding(1).

First Quarter 2013 Highlights

 

 

Total revenue for the first quarter increased 3.5%. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.3% and acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 0.6%.

 

  Revenue in USIS Online Data Services increased 4.6%, driven by an increase in online credit report volumes in the financial services and reseller markets.

 

  Revenue in USIS Decision Services increased 6.9%, driven by growth in Financial Services and Healthcare.

 

  Revenue in International emerging markets declined 1.5%, as constant currency growth in Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific was offset by the impact of weakening foreign currencies.

 

   

Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in emerging markets revenue of 10.2%.

 

   

Acquisitions accounted for an increase in emerging markets revenue of 4.7%.

 

  Revenue in the Interactive segment increased 18.0%, driven by an increase in the average number of subscribers and volumes in the indirect channel and higher average revenue per subscriber in the direct channel.

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $93.3 million, an increase of 3.3% compared to the prior year, while the Company continued to invest in new initiatives to drive long-term growth.

“In the first quarter we generated organic constant currency growth, versus a particularly strong first quarter of 2012, while continuing to invest in long-term growth initiatives,” said Jim Peck, the Company’s president and chief executive officer. “In my first quarter at TransUnion, I’ve found a company abundant with potential. We will further unlock this potential by continuing to identify, pursue and invest in organic growth initiatives that will drive long-term growth and value creation.”

Due to the acquisition of TransUnion Corp. by TransUnion Holding, TransUnion Corp.’s financial statements are prepared on a Predecessor and Successor basis. In this earnings release, we present the TransUnion Holding consolidated results for the three months ended March 31, 2013, and compare this to the combination of TransUnion Holding stand-alone results from inception through March 31, 2012, and the TransUnion Corp. Predecessor consolidated results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 (combined results for the three months ended March 31, 2012). TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp. operate as one business, with one management team. Management believes combining the earnings release of TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp. provides the following benefits: enhances investors’ understanding of TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp. by enabling investors to view the business as a whole, the same manner as management views and operates the business; provides a more readable presentation of required disclosures with less duplication, since a substantial portion of the Company’s disclosures apply to both TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp; and creates time and cost efficiencies through the preparation of one combined report instead of two separate reports.

First Quarter 2013 Results

The Company reported revenue of $290.5 million, an increase of 3.5% compared to the first quarter of 2012. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.3%. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 0.6%.

Operating income of $44.2 million in the first quarter, compared to $65.6 million in the prior year, was negatively impacted by a $23.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization, resulting primarily from purchase accounting adjustments to record tangible and intangibles assets at fair value due to 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 depreciation and amortization, operating income increased 2.3% compared to the first quarter of 2012, while the Company continued to invest in new initiatives to drive long-term growth.

Non-operating expense was $50.1 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $41.7 million in the prior year due to an increase in interest expense related primarily to the issuance of $600 million and $400 million principal amount of senior unsecured PIK toggle notes in the first and fourth quarters of 2012, respectively. Higher interest expense and the purchase accounting depreciation and amortization contributed to the net loss attributable to the Company of $6.3 million compared to net income of $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Segment Highlights

U.S. Information Services (USIS)

USIS revenue was $183.7 million, an increase of 1.7% percent compared to the first quarter of 2012, with increases in Online Data Services and Decision Services due to improved market conditions and growth in Financial Services, Resellers and Healthcare.

 

   

Online Data Services revenue was $127.1 million, an increase of 4.6%, driven by an increase in credit report volumes.

 

   

Credit Marketing Services revenue was $31.8 million, a decrease of 11.7%, due to a large one-time batch job in the first quarter of 2012.

 

   

Decision Services revenue was $24.8 million, an increase of 6.9%, driven by growth in Financial Services and Healthcare.

Operating income of $43.1 million, compared to $55.6 million in the prior year, was negatively impacted by $14.4 million of additional depreciation and amortization, resulting primarily from purchase accounting adjustments related to the 2012 Change of Control Transaction. Excluding depreciation and amortization, USIS operating income increased 2.6% compared to the first quarter of 2012 as the Company continued to invest in new initiatives to drive long-term growth.

International

International revenue was $55.7 million, a decrease of 1.6% compared to the first quarter of 2012. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 6.4%. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 2.8%.

 

2


   

Developed markets revenue was $22.0 million, a decrease of 1.8%, as growth in Hong Kong was offset by weakness in Canada. A weakening Canadian dollar accounted for a reduction in revenue of 0.4%.

 

   

Emerging markets revenue was $33.7 million, a decrease of 1.5%, as constant currency growth in Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific was offset by the impact of weakening foreign currencies. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a reduction in revenue of 10.2%. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 4.7%.

Operating income of $2.4 million, compared to $14.8 million in the prior year, was negatively impacted by $7.5 million of additional depreciation and amortization, resulting primarily from purchase accounting adjustments related to the 2012 Change of Control Transaction. Excluding depreciation and amortization, International operating income declined 28.2% compared to the first quarter of 2012. The remaining decline is attributable to planned integration costs of our Brazilian and South African acquisitions, continued investment in growth and the negative impact of foreign currency.

Interactive

Interactive revenue was $51.1 million, an increase of 18.0% compared to the first quarter of 2012, driven by an increase in the average number of subscribers and volumes in the indirect channel and higher average revenue per subscriber in the direct channel.

Operating income of $15.4 million increased 55.6% compared to the prior year due to the increase in revenue and despite the negative impact of $1.0 million from additional depreciation and amortization, resulting primarily from purchase accounting adjustments related to the 2012 Change of Control Transaction. Excluding depreciation and amortization, Interactive operating income increased 59.6% compared to the first quarter of 2012.

Selected Liquidity Data

Cash and cash equivalents was $117.4 million at March 31, 2013 and $154.3 million at December 31, 2012. Cash provided by operating activities of TransUnion Holding in the first quarter of 2013 was $13.5 million. Other first quarter 2013 cash activity of TransUnion Holding included: $16.4 million used for cash capital expenditures; $24.3 million used for other investing activities; $7.7 million used for financing activities; and $2.0 million used from the effect of exchange rate changes on cash.

Recent Developments

Refinancing of Senior Secured Credit Facilities

On March 1, 2013, amendment No. 4 to the Company’s senior secured credit facility became effective. The amendment, among other things, lowered the floor on the term loan from 1.50% to 1.25%, lowered the margin on the term loan from 4.00% to 3.00%, extended the term loan maturity date one year to February 2019, delayed the first required excess cash payments until 2014, and relaxed certain covenant requirements.

Results of Operations

As a result of the 2012 Change in Control Transaction, TransUnion Corp.’s historical financial statements are presented on a Successor and Predecessor basis. Periods prior to May 1, 2012, reflect the financial position, results of operations, and changes in financial position of TransUnion Corp. prior to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction (the “Predecessor”) and periods after April 30, 2012, reflect the financial position, results of operations, and changes in financial position of TransUnion Corp. after the 2012 Change in Control Transaction (the “Successor”).

The 2012 Change in Control Transaction was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805, Business Combinations. The guidance prescribes that the basis of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recorded at fair value to reflect the purchase price. Periods after the 2012 Change in Control Transaction are not comparable to prior periods primarily due to the additional amortization of intangibles in the Successor period resulting from the fair value adjustments of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. In addition, the Predecessor incurred significant stock-based compensation and acquisition costs related to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction.

We operate TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp. as one business and to facilitate comparability with the prior years, we present below the TransUnion Holding consolidated results for the three months ended March 31, 2013, and compare this to the combination of TransUnion Holding stand-alone results from inception through March 31, 2012, and the TransUnion Corp. Predecessor consolidated results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 (combined results for the three months ended March 31, 2012). We present the information in this format to assist readers in understanding and assessing the trends and significant changes in our results of operations on a comparable basis. We believe this presentation is appropriate because it provides a more meaningful comparison and more relevant analysis of our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012, than a presentation of separate historical results for TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp. Successor and Predecessor periods would provide. The following table sets forth our historical results of operations for the periods indicated below:

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, operating income included additional depreciation and amortization as a result of the purchase accounting fair value adjustments to the tangible and intangible assets recorded in connection with the 2012 Change in Control Transaction. The increase in depreciation and amortization, which is related primarily to the purchase accounting fair value adjustment, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012 was as follows: USIS $14.4 million; International $7.5 million; Interactive $1.0 million; and Corporate $0.5 million.

(1) 

Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. We present Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of our operating performance because they eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. 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 members of senior management is based in part on Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted Operating Income does not reflect certain stock-based compensation and certain other income and expense. 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 Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial condition or profitability under GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to cash flow from operating activities, as measures of liquidity or as alternatives to operating income or net income as indicators of operating performance. We believe that the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted Operating Income is operating income and the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is net income attributable to the Company. The reconciliations of Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA to their nearest GAAP measures are included in the table above.

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, operating income included additional depreciation and amortization as a result of the purchase accounting fair value adjustments to the tangible and intangible assets recorded in connection with the 2012 Change in Control Transaction.

(3) 

Other income and expense above includes all amounts included on our consolidated statement of income in other income and expense, net, except for earnings from equity method investments and dividends received from cost method investments. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, other income and expense included $1.6 million of acquisition-related expenses and a net $2.2 million of other expense. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, other income and expense included $13.0 million of acquisition-related expenses, primarily related to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction and the abandoned initial public offering process. Of the $13.0 million in acquisition-related expenses, $7.0 million was incurred by TransUnion Holding and $6.0 was incurred by TransUnion Corp.
