Neustar Reports Results For Third Quarter 2012

Discussion of Third Quarter Results

Consolidated revenue totaled $211.2 million, a 38% increase from $152.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. In particular:

  • Carrier Services revenue totaled $125.2 million, a 10% increase from $114.2 million in 2011. This increase was due to an $11.1 million increase in NPAC Services revenue;
  • Enterprise Services revenue totaled $43.6 million, a 14% increase from $38.3 million in 2011. This increase was due to higher revenue in both Internet Infrastructure and Registry Services; and
  • Information Services contributed $42.3 million of revenue in the third quarter of 2012. This business segment was created as a result of the TARGUSinfo acquisition completed in the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenue from Information Services was comprised of $24.2 million in Identification Services, $13.1 million in Verification & Analytics Services, and $5.0 million in Local Search & Licensed Data Services.

Total operating expense increased 45% to $136.5 million from $94.4 million in the third quarter of 2011. This $42.1 million increase was driven by the addition of $31.4 million in operating expense from the acquisition of our Information Services business segment. The remaining $10.7 million increase represents growth of 11% in the company‚Äôs operating expense. In particular, personnel and personnel-related expense increased $8.9 million due to increased headcount in technology and operations, research and development, and sales and marketing.
