WESTLAKE, Texas, May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Solera Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SLH), the leading global provider of software and services to the automobile insurance claims processing industry, today announced that, through a series of transactions, it has acquired  Actual Systems, a global provider of premier parts recycling yard management systems that are sold under the "Pinnacle" brand name ("Actual Systems").  The Pinnacle software applications are used by sophisticated parts recycling yard operators to manage their daily operations and seamlessly trade recycled parts.  Actual Systems has successfully expanded beyond North America and penetrated Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Ireland and Spain.

"Further, the acquisition provides us with additional opportunities to create value for our clients and increase revenue per transaction for Solera operating entities outside of North America, especially as more countries embrace green parts recycling alternatives and engage in cross-border parts trading."
