Unaudited Attributed Financial Information for Fidelity National Financial Group Tracking Stock

The following tables present our assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows that are attributed to our FNF core business, known as FNF Group (“we” or “our”). The financial information in this Exhibit should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2016 included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.
FNF Group is comprised of three operating segments as follows:
Title. This segment consists of the operations of our title insurance underwriters and related businesses. This segment provides core title insurance and escrow and other title-related services including trust activities, trustee sales guarantees, recordings and reconveyances, and home warranty products. This segment also includes our transaction services business, which includes other title-related services used in the production and management of mortgage loans, including mortgage loans that experience default.
Black Knight. This segment consists of the operations of Black Knight, which, through leading software systems and information solutions, provides mission critical technology and data and analytics services that facilitate and automate many of the business processes across the life cycle of a mortgage.
FNF Group Corporate and Other. This segment consists of the operations of the parent holding company, certain other unallocated corporate overhead expenses, and other real estate operations.
We have adopted certain expense allocation policies, each of which are reflected in the attributed financial information of the FNF Group and the FNFV Group (see Exhibit 99.2). In general, corporate overhead is allocated to each group based upon the use of services by that group where practicable. Corporate overhead primarily includes costs of personnel and employee benefits, legal, accounting and auditing, insurance, investor relations and stockholder services and services related to FNF’s board of directors. We allocate in a similar manner a portion of costs of administrative shared services, such as information technology services. Where determinations based on use alone are not practical, we use other methods and criteria that we believe are equitable and that provide a reasonable estimate of the cost attributable to each group.
Notwithstanding the following attribution of assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses and cash flows to FNF Group, Fidelity National Financial, Inc.'s ("FNF, Inc.") tracking stock structure does not affect the ownership or the respective legal title to FNF Inc.'s assets or responsibility for FNF, Inc.'s liabilities. FNF, Inc. and its subsidiaries are each responsible for their respective liabilities. Holders of FNF Group common stock are subject to risks associated with an investment in FNF, Inc. and all of its businesses, assets and liabilities. See "Item 1A. Risk Factors - Risks Relating to the Ownership of Our FNFV Group Common Stock due to our Tracking Stock Capitalization" for further discussion of risks associated with our tracking stock structure.

Notes to Unaudited Attributed Financial Information for Fidelity National Financial Group Tracking Stock
Period Ended December 31, 2016
(unaudited)
Note A.    Basis of Presentation
Description of the Business
Through FNF Group, we are a leading provider of (i) title insurance, escrow and other title-related services, including trust activities, trustee sales guarantees, recordings and reconveyances and home warranty products and (ii) technology and transaction services to the real estate and mortgage industries. FNF Group is the nation’s largest title insurance company operating through its title insurance underwriters - Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company, Alamo Title Insurance and National Title Insurance of New York Inc. - which collectively issue more title insurance policies than any other title company in the United States. Through our subsidiary ServiceLink Holdings, LLC ("ServiceLink"), we provide mortgage transaction services including title-related services and facilitation of production and management of mortgage loans. FNF Group also provides industry-leading mortgage technology solutions, including MSP®, the leading residential mortgage servicing technology platform in the U.S., through its majority-owned subsidiary, Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. ("Black Knight").
Recent Developments
On February 27, 2017, Black Knight announced that it has completed the repricing of its existing Term B Facility under its senior secured credit facility (the “Repricing”). The Term B Facility was repriced from 300 basis points to 225 basis points over LIBOR. The LIBOR floor remains at 75 basis points. The repriced loans continue to be due in full on May 27, 2022. See Note J to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Annual Report for further discussion of the terms of the Black Knight Term B Facility. In conjunction with the Repricing, Black Knight’s lenders consented to the previously announced tax-free distribution in which we intend to distribute all 83.3 million shares of Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. common stock that we currently own to FNF Group shareholders.
On February 1, 2017, our Board of Directors adopted a resolution to increase the size of the of our Board of Directors to twelve and elected Raymond R. Quirk to serve on our Board of Directors. Mr. Quirk is the Chief Executive Officer of FNF and has served in that capacity since December 2013. Previously, he served as the President of FNF beginning in April 2008. Since joining FNF in 1985, Mr. Quirk has served in numerous other executive and management positions, including Executive Vice President, Co-Chief Operating Officer, Division Manager and Regional Manager, with responsibilities for managing direct and agency title operations nationally.
On January 31, 2017, Black Knight's Board of Directors authorized a three-year share repurchase program, effective February 3, 2017, under which Black Knight may repurchase up to 10 million shares of its Class A common stock. The timing and volume of share repurchases will be determined by Black Knight's management based on its ongoing assessments of the capital needs of the business, the market price of its common stock and general market conditions. The repurchase program authorizes Black Knight to purchase its common stock from time to time through February 2, 2020, through open market purchases, negotiated transactions or other means, in accordance with applicable securities laws and other restrictions.
Effective January 1, 2017, Property Insight ("PI"), a Black Knight subsidiary that provides information used by title insurance underwriters, title agents and closing attorneys to source and underwrite title insurance for real property sales and transfers, realigned its commercial relationship with us. In connection with the realignment, responsibility for title plant posting and maintenance, as well as the related Property Insight employees, are now managed by us. Black Knight will continue to own the title plant technology and retain sales responsibility for third parties. The realignment will not have a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations.
On December 7, 2016, we announced that our Board of Directors has approved a tax-free plan (the "Plan") whereby we intend to distribute all 83.3 million shares of Black Knight Financial Services Inc. common stock that we currently own to FNF Group shareholders.  Following the distribution, FNF and Black Knight will each be independent, fully-distributed, publicly-traded common stocks with FNF no longer being a tracking stock.  FNF and Black Knight should be eligible for index inclusion in the S&P Midcap 400 and potentially the S&P 500. The Plan is subject to the receipt of private letter rulings from the Internal Revenue Service approving the distribution of Black Knight, filing and acceptance of a registration statement for the Black Knight transaction with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the refinancing of Black Knight senior notes, which are subject to the FNF guarantee, on reasonable terms, Black Knight shareholder approval and other customary closing conditions. The closing of the distributions is expected by the end of the third quarter of 2017.
On August 23, 2016, FNF Group completed its acquisition of Commissions, Inc. ("CINC"), a leading provider of web-based real estate marketing and customer relationship management software for elite Realtors® and agent teams across North America, for $229 million. CINC’s product offerings include software, marketing and services designed to enhance the productivity and sales results of elite Realtors® and agent teams through lead generation and proactive lead management. See discussion in Acquisitions in Note B to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Report for further discussion.

During the second quarter of 2016 we invested $30 million in CF Corporation (“CF Corp”, NYSE: CFCOU), a blank check company co-founded by William P. Foley, the Chairman of our Board of Directors. Mr. Foley also serves as the Co-Executive Chairman of CF Corp. As of December 31, 2016, our investment in CF Corp has a fair value of $31 million and is included in Equity securities available for sale on the corresponding Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.
On May 16, 2016, Black Knight completed its acquisition of eLynx Holdings, Inc. ("eLynx"), a leading lending document and data delivery platform, for $115 million. eLynx helps clients in the financial services and real estate industries electronically capture and manage documents and associated data throughout the document lifecycle. This acquisition positions Black Knight to electronically support the full mortgage origination process. See discussion in Acquisitions in Note B to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Report for further discussion.
On April 29, 2016, pursuant to the terms of a certain “synthetic lease” agreement, dated as of June 29, 2004, as amended on June 27, 2011, we exercised our option to purchase the land and various real property improvements associated with our corporate campus and headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida from SunTrust Bank for $71 million.
EPS
Included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share are convertible senior notes (the “Notes”) issued on August 2, 2011 by Fidelity National Financial, Inc.  Under the terms of the indenture, if converted, a portion of the settlement may include shares of FNFV common stock.  As the debt is the obligation of FNF Group, if FNF were to settle a portion of the Notes with FNFV common stock, FNF Group would reimburse FNFV Group for the shares issued upon settlement.
