CORELOGIC REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Significant Margin Expansion, Favorable Revenue Mix and Growth Highlight Strong Operating Performance; 2019 Full-Year Guidance Increased

Irvine, Calif., October 23, 2019 - CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global provider of residential property information, insight, analytics and data-enabled solutions, today reported financial results for the quarter ended
September 30, 2019
. Operating and financial highlights appear below.

Revenues of $459 million, up $7 million, reflecting strong performance in core mortgage, insurance and real estate solutions, which more than offset a decline of approximately $16 million attributable to the AMC transformation and wind-down of non-core mortgage and default technology units.
Operating income of $74 million, up $14 million, attributable to cost efficiency and productivity programs and improved revenue mix and growth.
Net income from continuing operations totaled $41 million, up $18 million, driven by higher operating income.
Diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.50, up from $0.27. Adjusted EPS of $0.82, up from $0.72.
Adjusted EBITDA of $137 million, up $8 million, primarily due to revenue upsides and the benefits of cost efficiency and productivity programs; adjusted EBITDA margin was up 140 basis points to 30%.
Reduced debt outstanding by $54 million and repurchased 700,000 common shares.

“CoreLogic delivered a strong third quarter in terms of revenue growth, mix and margins, driven by strength in our platform-related and other high-margin businesses. We also benefited from improved origination volumes in the U.S. market. Ongoing productivity gains also helped us to boost our overall adjusted EBITDA margins which rose by 140 basis points to 30% in the quarter," said Frank Martell, President and Chief Executive Officer of CoreLogic. “As we exit the year, we believe that in-flight strategic investments and cost efficiency and productivity programs, provide us with solid line of sight to our adjusted EBITDA margin objective of 30% in 2020.”

Third Quarter Financial Summary

Third quarter revenues totaled $459 million, up $7 million or 2%, from 2018 levels. Revenue growth reflected strong performance in core mortgage, insurance and real estate solutions. Revenues include a decline of approximately $16 million attributable to the AMC transformation and wind-down of non-core mortgage and default technology units. Underwriting & Workflow Solutions ("UWS") revenues totaled $281 million, up $7 million reflecting the benefits of higher U.S. mortgage origination volumes and gains from pricing and new products, which more than offset the impacts of the AMC transformation and the planned wind-down of mortgage and default technology units discussed earlier as well as lower credit services. Property Intelligence & Risk Management Solutions ("PIRM") revenues rose modestly from 2018 levels to $182 million, as growth in insurance, and real estate solutions more than offset unfavorable currency translation and reduced housing market activity in Australia, which together aggregated approximately $6 million.

Operating income from continuing operations totaled $74 million compared with $60 million in 2018. The 23% improvement in operating income was due primarily to workflow efficiency and cost productivity programs as well as favorable revenue growth and mix. Operating margin totaled 16%, an increase of approximately 280 basis points. Higher operating income drove net income from continuing operations to $41 million, compared to $23 million in the prior period. Diluted EPS from continuing operations totaled $0.50 versus $0.27. Adjusted EPS totaled $0.82 up from $0.72.





Adjusted EBITDA totaled $137 million, up 6%, compared to the same prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 30%, an increase of approximately 140 basis points. The $8 million increase in adjusted EBITDA was principally attributable to revenue growth, improved business mix and the benefits of ongoing cost efficiency and productivity programs. UWS adjusted EBITDA was $93 million, compared to $80 million for the prior year quarter, an increase of $13 million, reflecting improved U.S. mortgage loan origination volumes, benefits from pricing and new products, favorable revenue mix and continued productivity gains which more than offset the impact of the AMC transformation and wind-down of non-core mortgage and default technology units discussed earlier. PIRM segment adjusted EBITDA totaled $53 million, in line with 2018 as growth in insurance and real estate solutions and cost productivity helped to offset unfavorable currency translation and reduced housing market activity in Australia as well as higher levels of investments in platforms and technology.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At September 30, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $88 million compared to $85 million at December 31, 2018. During the three months ended September 30, 2019, we repaid debt of $54 million. Total debt as of September 30, 2019 was $1,727 million compared with $1,797 million as of December 31, 2018. At September 30, 2019, the Company had available capacity on its revolving credit facility of $750 million.

Net operating cash provided by continuing operations for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 was $351 million. Free cash flow ("FCF") for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 totaled $227 million, which represented 48% of adjusted EBITDA.

During the third quarter of 2019, the Company completed the repurchase of 700,000 common shares, or 1% of outstanding share count, for $33 million. Through the first nine months of 2019, the Company completed the repurchase of 1.4 million of its common shares, or 2% of outstanding share count, for $62 million.

Safe Harbor / Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements made in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including but not limited to those statements related to key estimates and assumptions related to updated 2019 financial guidance and assumptions thereunder, U.S. mortgage origination unit volumes, foreign currency translation impact, underlying business trends in our UWS and PIRM segments, savings expectations from reduction of run-rate costs and productivity programs, results of the acceleration of the AMC transformation program, and results of the wind-down of certain non-core mortgage and default technology units. Risks and uncertainties exist that may cause the results to differ materially from those set forth in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause the anticipated results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements include the risks and uncertainties set forth in Part I, Item 1A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. These additional risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to: our ability to protect our information systems against data corruption, cyber-based attacks or network security breaches; limitations on access to or increase in prices for data from external sources, including government and public record sources; changes in applicable government legislation, regulations and the level of regulatory scrutiny affecting our customers or us, including with respect to consumer financial services and the use of public records and consumer data; systems interruptions that may impair the delivery of our products and services; difficult conditions in the mortgage and consumer lending industries and the economy generally; our ability to protect proprietary rights; our cost reduction program, technology and growth strategies and our ability to effectively and efficiently implement them; risks related to the outsourcing of services and international operations; our indebtedness and the restrictions in our various debt agreements; our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of certain acquisitions and/or divestitures and the timing thereof; the inability to control the operations or dividend policies of our partially-owned affiliates; and impairments of our goodwill or other intangible assets. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. The Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date the forward-looking statements are made.

Use of Non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS and FCF, which are provided only as supplemental information. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in this press release.

The Company believes that its presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides useful supplemental information to investors and management regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income from continuing operations adjusted for interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, non-operating gains/losses, and other adjustments. Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted income from continuing operations, net of tax per share, adjusted for share-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, non-operating gains/losses, and other adjustments; and assumes an effective tax rate of 25% and 26% for 2019 and 2018, respectively. FCF is defined as net cash provided by continuing operating activities less capital expenditures for purchases of property and equipment, capitalized data and other intangible assets. Other firms may calculate non-GAAP measures differently than the Company, which limits comparability between companies.

This press release also contains certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS, which are provided only as supplemental information. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation, without unreasonable efforts, of its forward-looking guidance of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure due to the unknown effect, timing, and potential significance of special charges or gains that are material to the comparable GAAP financial measure.
