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

International revenue was $63.2 million, an increase of 3.1% compared with the second quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and acquisitions, revenue increased 5.9%.

Interactive revenue was $57.5 million, an increase of 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.

Operating income was $67.2 million for the first six months of 2014, compared with $83.6 million for the first six months 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 $77.4 million for the first six months of 2014, compared with $87.7 million for the first six months of 2013. Adjusted Operating Income for the first six months of 2013 included additions of $4.1 million of adjustments, including a loss on the disposal of a small operating company in our International segment, a gain on the disposal of a product line recorded in our USIS segment and a tax expense related to prior years that was recorded in our USIS segment and in Corporate.

Selected Liquidity Data

Cash and cash equivalents was $93.2 million at June 30, 2014, and $111.2 million at December 31, 2013. Year-to-date cash provided by operating activities was $45.6 million. Year-to-date capital expenditures were $74.3 million compared with $30.2 million in the first six months of 2013, due primarily to the upgrade of our technology platform and improvements to our corporate headquarters. Other cash used for investing activities included $54.8 million for acquisitions and purchases of noncontrolling interests, principally increasing our stake in CIBIL. Net cash provided by financing activities was $57.8 million due to an increase in net borrowings, partially offset by fees associated with the early redemption of the 11.375% notes and credit facility refinancing.

(1)   For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, adjustments consisted of $10.2 million of accelerated fees for a data matching service contract that we have terminated and in-sourced in our USIS segment as part of the upgrade to our technology platform. For the three months ended June 30, 2013, adjustments consisted of a $2.3 million loss on the disposal of a small operating company recorded in our International segment, and a $2.9 million adjustment for tax expense related to prior years that was recorded in each segment and in Corporate as follows: USIS $2.6 million; and Corporate $0.3 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, adjustments also included a $1.1 million gain on the disposal of a product line recorded in our USIS segment.
     
(2)   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 use Adjusted EBITDA as a compensation measure. Adjusted Operating Income does not reflect certain other income and expense. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our capital expenditures, interest, income tax, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and 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.
     
(3)   Other income and expense above includes all amounts included in our consolidated statement of income in other income and expense, net, except for dividends received from cost method investments.

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, other income and expense included $4.0 million of acquisition-related expenses and a net $0.9 million of other income. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, other income and expense included the net gain of $45.4 million resulting from the early redemption of the 11.375% notes, $12.7 million of refinancing fees and other costs expensed as a result of refinancing our senior secured credit facility, the gain of $21.7 million on our previously held equity interest in CIBIL, 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, $1.3 million of acquisition-related expenses, and a net $2.8 million of other expenses.
