TransUnion Holding Company, Inc., a global leader in information and risk management, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014. Total revenue was $336 million, an increase of 15 percent (16 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. The net loss attributable to the Company was $13 million, an improvement of 26 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted Net Income Attributable to the Company was $18 million, an increase of 5 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA was $97 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 28.8 percent, compared with 31.4 percent for the fourth quarter of 2013. During the quarter, we continued to invest to integrate our recent acquisitions and to invest in key strategic growth and productivity initiatives, including our new technology platform. Additionally, we invested in our new brand launch and messaging and had an increase in incentive compensation.

"We closed out the year on a high note with strong results across all business segments driven by healthy organic growth and from the performance of our acquisitions," said Jim Peck, TransUnion's president and chief executive officer. "Our most recent acquisitions, L2C and DHI, provide us with unique, alternative data sources that expand the breadth and depth of our scope and enable us to offer greater value to our customers. We are excited about the possibilities this combination of capabilities allows us to bring to market. We have also unveiled our new brand identity platform and logo, reflecting TransUnion's focus and capabilities as an information solution provider for consumers and businesses worldwide. During 2014, we continued to make strategic investments to enable sustainable top-line growth and in key productivity initiatives to drive long-term operating leverage. We are excited about our progress and momentum as we enter 2015."

Segment Highlights

U.S. Information Services (USIS)

Total USIS revenue was $206 million, an increase of 14 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Online Data Services revenue was $134 million, an increase of 14 percent, driven by our acquisition of TLO and an increase in online credit report volume. Credit Marketing Services revenue was $36 million, an increase of 13 percent, due primarily to an increase in demand for custom data sets and archive information in the financial services and insurance markets. Decision Services revenue was $37 million, an increase of 16 percent, driven by increases in the healthcare and insurance markets.

Operating income was $21 million, a decrease of 36 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted Operating income was $20 million, a decrease of 39 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted Operating Income was due primarily to our integration expense from our recent acquisitions that continue to track to plan and will enable diversified and sustainable top-line growth. Additional depreciation and amortization, resulting from shortening the remaining useful lives of certain existing technology assets as a result of successfully achieving a major milestone for our new technology platform, also contributed to the decrease in operating income and Adjusted Operating Income.

International

International revenue was $70 million, an increase of 14 percent (22 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2013, driven by increased volumes in most regions and the inclusion of revenue from our recent acquisitions of CIBIL. Developed markets revenue was $24 million, an increase of 12 percent (18 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Emerging markets revenue was $46 million, an increase of 15 percent (25 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the fourth quarter of 2013.

Operating income was $7 million, an increase of 70 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted Operating Income was $8 million, an increase of 4 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase in operating income was due to the increase in revenue and a decrease in litigation expense. The increase was partially offset by additional depreciation and amortization resulting from shortening the useful lives of existing technology assets as we migrate to our upgraded technology platform as part of our long-term strategic growth plan.

Consumer Interactive (formerly Interactive)

Consumer Interactive revenue was $60 million, an increase of 18 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013, driven by an increase in the average number of subscribers and volume in our indirect channel and an increase in direct subscribers.

Operating income was $25 million, an increase of 40 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013, driven by the increase in revenue.

Full-Year 2014 Results

Total revenue was $1,305 million for the full year of 2014, an increase of 10 percent (12 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the full year of 2013.

  • USIS revenue was $819 million, an increase of 11 percent compared with the full year of 2013.
  • International revenue was $256 million, an increase of 7 percent (15 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the full year of 2013.
  • Consumer Interactive revenue was $231 million, an increase of 13 percent compared with the full year of 2013.

The net loss attributable to the Company was $13 million, an improvement of 64 percent compared with the full year of 2013. Adjusted Net Income Attributable to the Company was $84 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with the full year of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA was $402 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with the full year of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 30.8 percent, compared with 31.9 percent for the full year of 2013. During the year, we continued to invest in key strategic growth and productivity initiatives, including our new technology platform, integrated our recent acquisitions and invested in our new brand launch and messaging.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents were $78 million at December 31, 2014 and $111 million at December 31, 2013. Cash provided by operating activities was $154 million. Capital expenditures were $155 million compared with $82 million in 2013, due primarily to the upgrade of our technology platform and improvements to our corporate headquarters. Other cash used for investing activities included $120 million for acquisitions and purchases of noncontrolling interests, principally increasing our stake in CIBIL and acquiring DHI and L2C. Net cash provided by financing activities was $92 million due to an increase in net borrowings, partially offset by fees associated with the early redemption of our 11.375% notes and credit facility refinancing.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release presents changes in revenue on a constant currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, segment Adjusted Operating Income, segment Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to the Company. These are important financial measures for the Company but are not financial measures as defined by GAAP. We present these financial measures as supplemental measures of our operating performance because we believe they provide meaningful information regarding our performance and provide a basis to compare operating results between periods. In addition, our board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted EBITDA as a compensation measure. These financial measures should be reviewed in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures and are not presented as alternative measures of GAAP. Other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, including revenue, operating income, operating margin, effective tax rate, net income (loss) attributable to the Company or cash provided by operating activities. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the attached Schedules.

Note: The adjusted provision for income taxes is not intended to present the tax provision we would have recorded had our income before income taxes been the same as the adjusted income before income taxes shown above. We estimated the effect on the tax provision of excluding certain pre-tax and tax-provision-only items individually rather than reflecting the impact of such adjustments to other assumptions and estimates inherent in our tax provision. We continued to assume that we will fully utilize domestic net operating loss carryforwards but not foreign tax credits. We also assumed no changes to our existing capital structure. If these assumptions and estimates were changed, the tax adjustments could be materially different from what is disclosed.

  
(1)Tax rates used to calculate the tax expense impact are based on the nature of each item.
(2)Eliminates impact of certain adjustments related to our deferred tax liability for unremitted foreign earnings, including a discrete change from foreign tax credit to foreign tax deduction methodology in 2014 and accrued withholding taxes on earnings from lower-tier foreign subsidiaries.
(3)Eliminates impact of certain acquisition-related items, principally deferred taxes established related to our pre-consolidated CIBIL investment.
(4)Eliminates impact of state tax rate changes on deferred taxes, valuation allowances on foreign net operating losses, and valuation allowances on capital losses.
