Identification and credential verification services provider

ChoicePoint

(CPS) - Get Report

said Wednesday it acquired

USCerts

for an undisclosed sum.

USCerts, based in Memphis, Tenn., provides technology and data management services to facilitate the remote ordering of certified birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates.

The Alpharetta, Ga.-based company does not expect the acquisition to have a material impact on its financial results, nor does it expect the transaction to be dilutive to earnings.

The acquisition of USCerts will enhance ChoicePoint's VitalChek business, which already facilitates more than 2 million transactions per year to meet consumers' growing demands for documents needed to verify a person's age and identity, the company said.

The stock was down 4 cents, or 0.1%, to $41.11 in recent trading.
