Paul Lalljie, Neustar’s chief financial officer added, “Our 2012 operating results demonstrate strong execution across all of our business segments while integrating a significant acquisition. In addition, we repurchased nearly $100 million of our common stock and improved our financial flexibility through our recently executed credit facility and notes offering. Our guidance for 2013 reflects the momentum from 2012, operating leverage, and the impact of our new debt structure.”

Discussion of Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Results
Fourth Quarter Revenue
Consolidated revenue totaled $214.2 million, a 23% increase from $174.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. In particular:
- Carrier Services revenue totaled $126.2 million, an 11% increase from $113.3 million in 2011. This increase was primarily due to an $11.2 million increase in NPAC Services revenue;
- Enterprise Services revenue totaled $45.2 million, a 14% increase from $39.7 million in 2011. This increase was due to higher revenue in both Internet Infrastructure Services and Registry Services; and
- Information Services generated revenue of $42.8 million in the fourth quarter as compared to revenue of $21.2 million from the November 8, 2011 acquisition date through the end of the year.
Consolidated revenue totaled $831.4 million, a 34% increase from $620.5 million in 2011. In particular:
- Carrier Services revenue totaled $502.1 million, a 12% increase from $447.9 million in 2011. This increase was primarily due to a $43.8 million increase in NPAC Services revenue;
- Enterprise Services revenue totaled $170.4 million, a 13% increase from $151.4 million in 2011. This increase was due to higher revenue in both Internet Infrastructure Services and Registry Services; and
- Information Services generated revenues of $158.9 million for 2012. Revenue from Information Services was $21.2 million from the November 8, 2011 acquisition date through the end of 2011.
Operating expense for the fourth quarter totaled $144.9 million, a 7% increase from $134.8 million in 2011. This $10.1 million increase was driven by incremental operating expense of $19.2 million from the acquisition of our Information Services segment. This increase of $19.2 million was partially offset by $9.6 million of acquisition costs incurred in the 2011 quarter.
Operating expense for 2012 totaled $554.7 million, an increase of 35% or $143.3 million from $411.4 million in 2011. This increase was driven by incremental operating costs of $130.4 million from the acquisitions completed in 2011. This increase of $130.4 million was partially offset by expenses incurred in 2011 driven by acquisition costs of $11.6 million. The remaining $24.5 million increase represents a growth of 6% in the Company’s operating expense.
For 2012, adjusted net income totaled $206.4 million, including the impact of discrete tax benefits totaling $6.8 million, primarily associated with a domestic production activities deduction. Excluding the impact of these discrete tax benefits, our effective tax rate was approximately 38.6%.
Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $343.9 million as of December 31, 2012, an increase of $208.6 million from December 31, 2011.
As of December 31, 2012, the Company’s outstanding debt under its 2011 credit facility was $592.5 million. On January 22, 2013, the Company refinanced this credit facility. In particular, the Company issued $300 million of 4.5% senior notes that mature in 2023. In addition, the Company completed a $525 million credit facility that includes a $325 million term loan A and a $200 million revolver. The interest rate for the term loan A and the revolver is leverage-based and ranges from LIBOR plus 1.50% to LIBOR plus 1.75%. At the Company’s current leverage, the applicable interest rate is LIBOR plus 1.50%. The Company will record a non-operating expense of approximately $11.0 million in the first quarter of 2013 related to the modification and extinguishment of its 2011 credit facility.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this press release and in other public statements, Neustar presents certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and may not be comparable with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Set forth below are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations from financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP should be carefully evaluated. Prior disclosures of non-GAAP figures do not exclude the same items and as such should not be used for comparison purposes.
Reconciliation of Income from Continuing Operations to Adjusted Net Income from Continuing Operations
The following is a reconciliation of income from continuing operations to adjusted net income from continuing operations for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 and the year ending December 31, 2013. Management believes that this measure enhances investors’ understanding of the Company’s financial performance and the comparability of the Company’s operating results to prior periods, as well as against the performance of other companies.
