Experian plc Key Developments

Experian plc Announces Interim Management Statement for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Revenue Guidance for the First Half and Second Half of Fiscal 2014 and Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2015

Experian plc announced interim management statement for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported total revenue from continuing activities increased by 4% at constant exchange rates growth was 3% and organic revenue was unchanged. The difference relates mainly to the acquisitions of The 41st Parameter and Passport Health Communications and to the translation effect of the movement in British pound sterling relative to the US dollar. The company continued to expect revenue growth in the first half of fiscal 2015 to be constrained by the one-off headwinds it expected a return to more normal levels of organic revenue growth as the second half of the year progresses. The company continued to expect at least to maintain margins for the year, to deliver growth in earnings per share and to exceed 90% cash flow conversion.

Experian Launches New Offering to Help Government Agencies Identify and TRAP Tax Fraudsters

Experian announced the launch of the Tax Return Analysis Platform(SM) (TRAP) -- a new offering that will enable federal and state revenue offices to detect fraudulent tax returns that have been submitted using stolen identity credentials. This innovative tool goes beyond traditional identity verification, offering device intelligence and risk assessment and the use of proprietary data and analytics to check for fraud, potentially saving revenue agencies millions of dollars. TRAP uses Experian's powerful Precise ID(SM) identity authentication and fraud detection platform to analyze tax return data points and identify those with the high potential fraud risk. TRAP can combine Precise ID with device intelligence to determine if a user's device is or has been involved in fraudulent activity. TRAP also can combine Precise ID with proprietary data to determine if those same stolen credentials are already being used in other fraudulent applications. The tool provides fraud scores that allow the revenue office to further authenticate identified returns through an automated process rather than manually.
