"This quarter highlighted the potential of our title business when we experience stable order volumes, as we generated a 14.6% pre-tax title margin while operating in a slow recovering purchase environment and a very soft refinance market," said Chairman William P. Foley, II.  "The 14.6% margin approached our normalized pre-tax title margin target of 15%-20%, despite operating in what is arguably less than a normal residential real estate market.  We believe this clearly shows that we are primed to benefit significantly from potential further improvement in the residential purchase market.

"Black Knight had another strong quarter, with revenue of $201 million, a 7% sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA of $84 million generated a 41% adjusted EBITDA margin, a 510 basis point sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2014.  We remain excited about the recurring nature of the revenue, the market positioning of our product offerings, the significant organic revenue growth opportunities and the strong EBITDA margins that Black Knight brings to FNF.

"The integration of LPS continues to progress well, as we have now realized nearly $275 million of cost synergies on a run-rate basis as of the end of the second quarter. Additionally, we are confident in again increasing our total cost synergy target to $315 million.

"Finally, we distributed the stock of FNFV on June 30, 2014, and it began trading as a separate public company on the NYSE on July 1, 2014.  We are encouraged by the market's significant interest in FNFV and look forward to creating value for FNFV shareholders through the active management of the existing portfolio company investments, the potential monetization of portfolio company investments and future potential add-on or new investments."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting. GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions and in the preparation of financial statements. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures, which it believes are useful to help investors better understand its financial performance, competitive position and prospects for the future. These non-GAAP measures include earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), adjusted earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation as a percent of adjusted revenue (Adjusted EBITDA margin), adjusted net earnings, adjusted EPS and free cash flow.

Any non-GAAP measures should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net earnings. Further, FNF's non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently from similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to related GAAP measures are provided below.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements regarding our expectations, hopes, intentions or strategies regarding the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on management's beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management. Because such statements are based on expectations as to future financial and operating results and are not statements of fact, actual results may differ materially from those projected. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  The risks and uncertainties which forward-looking statements are subject to include, but are not limited to: changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including changes in the financial markets; weakness or adverse changes in the level of real estate activity, which may be caused by, among other things, high or increasing interest rates, a limited supply of mortgage funding or a weak U. S. economy; our potential inability to find suitable acquisition candidates, acquisitions in lines of business that will not necessarily be limited to our traditional areas of focus, or difficulties in integrating acquisitions; our dependence on distributions from our title insurance underwriters as a main source of cash flow; significant competition that our operating subsidiaries face; compliance with extensive government regulation of our operating subsidiaries; and other risks detailed in the "Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information," "Risk Factors" and other sections of the Company's Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
