Moody's Corporation Reports Results For Second Quarter 2012

Within MIS, global corporate finance revenue of $191.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 declined 4%, reflecting weaker speculative grade bond and bank loan issuance, against a near-record prior-year period. Corporate finance revenue was down 4% year-over-year both inside and outside the U.S.

Global structured finance revenue totaled $90.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 5% from a year earlier. U.S. structured finance revenue grew 22% from the year-ago period, primarily due to strength in ratings of collateralized loan obligations and asset-backed securities, while non-U.S. structured finance revenue was down 9%.

Global financial institutions revenue of $77.8 million in the second quarter of 2012 decreased 2% compared to the prior-year period. U.S. financial institutions revenue was essentially flat, while non-U.S. revenue declined 3 percent.

Global public, project and infrastructure finance revenue was $81.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 12% from the second quarter of 2011. U.S. revenue was up 19% from the prior-year period, primarily due to gains in public finance, while non-U.S. revenue declined 3 percent.

Global revenue for Moody’s Analytics (MA) for the second quarter of 2012 was $199.6 million, up 19% from the second quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, revenue growth was 21 percent. Revenue from research, data and analytics of $121.4 million increased by 9% from the prior-year period, driven primarily by increased sales of credit research via our CreditView offering and solid growth in data licensing arrangements. Enterprise risk solutions revenue of $51.5 million was up 24% over the prior-year period, reflecting both the acquisition of Barrie & Hibbert in December 2011 and growth in the base business. Revenue from professional services of $26.7 million was up 84% from the prior-year period, reflecting the acquisition of a majority stake in Copal Partners in November 2011.
