TransUnion Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) - TransUnion today announced results for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 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).

Third Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Total revenue for the third quarter increased 2.7 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.9 percent, while acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 1.1 percent. Key highlights include:

    • Revenue in the Interactive segment increased 10.5 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012, driven by an increase in the average number of subscribers and volume in our indirect channel and an increase in our average revenue per subscriber in our direct channel.

    • Revenue in USIS Decision Services increased 10.0 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012, driven by revenue from our recent healthcare acquisition of eScan and organic growth in the healthcare market.

    • Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and acquisitions, revenue in the International segment increased 8.4 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012.

  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $99.5 million, a decrease of 6.1 percent compared to the prior year, due to investments in new initiatives to drive long-term revenue growth and more efficient operations. 

  • On September 4, 2013, TransUnion completed the acquisition of e-Scan Data Systems Inc. ("eScan"). eScan provides services to hospitals and healthcare providers to efficiently capture uncompensated care costs in their revenue management cycle programs. eScan will be integrated into TransUnion's healthcare business.

"In the third quarter, we generated revenue growth across all business segments while we continue to invest in strategic initiatives and new technology that will enable future top and bottom line growth, promote innovation and provide a competitive advantage," said Jim Peck, TransUnion's president and chief executive officer. "We are excited about our recent acquisition of eScan, a strategic investment that will further diversify and strengthen our current healthcare offerings. These near-term investments will drive long-term growth and value creation."

Third Quarter 2013 Results

The Company reported revenue of $299.5 million, an increase of 2.7 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a decrease in revenue of 1.9 percent. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 1.1 percent.

  • Online Data Services revenue was $129.3 million, an increase of 0.7 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012, driven by an increase in average pricing and a slight increase in online credit report volumes.

  • Credit Marketing Services revenue was $31.5 million, a decrease of 3.7 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to a decrease in demand for custom data sets and archive information.

  • Decision Services revenue was $27.5 million, an increase of 10.0 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012, driven by revenue from our acquisition of eScan and organic growth in our healthcare business.

Operating income for Interactive was $16.7 million for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $20.4 million for the third quarter for 2012.

Year-to-Date 2013 Results

The Company reported revenue of $890.8 million for the first nine months of 2013, an increase of 4.1 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012. Weakening foreign currencies accounted for a reduction in revenue of 1.5 percent. Acquisitions accounted for an increase in revenue of 0.9 percent. 

  • Revenue for U.S. Information Services was $560.0 million, an increase of 2.3 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012.

  • Revenue for International was $177.5 million, an increase of 2.1 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012. Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and acquisitions, revenue increased 6.4 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012.

  • Revenue for Interactive was $ 153.3 million, an increase of 14.2 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012.

Operating income was $132.9 million for the first nine months of 2013, compared to $97.6 million for the first nine months of 2012. The first nine months of 2012 was adversely impacted by $90.6 million of 2012 Change in Control Transaction related expenses. Conversely, the first nine months of 2013 was impacted by a $2.9 million one-time adjustment for a transaction tax related to prior years and a net $1.2 million loss associated with the disposition of a small business in Africa and small product line in our USIS segment. Excluding these items, Adjusted Operating Income was $137.0 million for the first nine months of 2013, compared to $188.2 million for the first nine months of 2012. This comparison was negatively impacted by $37.2 million of additional depreciation and amortization, primarily resulting from purchase accounting adjustments related to the 2012 Change of Control Transaction. 

Adjusted EBITDA was $286.1 million, a decrease of 3.4 percent compared to the first nine months of 2012, due to investments in new initiatives to drive long-term revenue growth and bottom-line savings. 

Non-operating expense was $144.3 million for the first nine months of 2013, compared to $155.8 million for the first nine months of 2012. The first nine months of 2013 included a $30.2 million 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 second and fourth quarters of 2012, respectively. The first nine months of 2012 included $41.9 million of acquisition fees related primarily to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction. These factors contributed to a net loss attributable to the Company of $17.5 million for the first nine months of 2013, compared to a net loss attributable to the company of $55.5 million for the first nine months of 2012.

1 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 nine months ended September 30, 2013, and compare this to the combination of TransUnion Holding consolidated results from inception through September 30, 2012 combined with the TransUnion Corp Predecessor consolidated results for the four months ended April 30, 2012, (combined results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013). 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.

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 due primarily 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 year, we present below the TransUnion Holding consolidated results for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the TransUnion Holding consolidated results for the three months ended September 30, 2012, and the TransUnion Holding consolidated results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to TransUnion Holding consolidated results from inception through September 30, 2012, combined with the TransUnion Corp Predecessor consolidated results for the four months ended April 30, 2012, (combined results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013). 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 than a presentation of separate historical results for TransUnion Holding and TransUnion Corp Successor and Predecessor periods would provide. The following tables set forth our historical results of operations for the periods indicated below.

(1)   For the three and nine months ended September 30, 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, in the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2012, was as follows: USIS $3.6 million; International $0.6 million; Interactive $0.4 million; and Corporate $0.4 million. The increase in depreciation and amortization in the nine months ended September 30, 2013, which is related primarily to the purchase accounting fair value adjustments, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was as follows: USIS $23.9 million; International $10.0 million; Interactive $2.1 million; and Corporate $1.3 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, operating income included a $2.3 million loss on the disposal of a small operating company recorded in our International segment, a $1.1 million gain on the disposal of a healthcare product line recorded in our USIS segment and a $2.9 million one-time adjustment for a transaction tax 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 nine months ended September 30, 2012, operating income included $90.6 million of accelerated stock-based compensation and related expense recorded by the Predecessor as a result of the 2012 Change in Control Transaction that were recorded in each segment and in Corporate as follows: USIS $41.1 million; International $14.4 million; Interactive $2.3 million; and Corporate $32.8 million. See Part I, Item 1, Note 2, "2012 Change in Control Transaction," for further information about the impact of the 2012 Change in Control Transaction.

(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 focus on Adjusted EBITDA as a compensation measure. 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 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)   Operating income included additional depreciation and amortization beginning May 1, 2012, 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.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, other income and expense included $6.4 million of acquisition-related expenses and a net $1.9 million of other expense. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, other income and expense included $0.6 million of acquisition-related expenses and a net $3.0 million of other expense. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, other income and expense included $41.9 million of acquisition-related expenses, primarily related to the 2012 Change in Control Transaction and the abandoned initial public offering process, and a net $7.1 million of other expense.
