SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Unaudited Interim Financial Information
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full fiscal year. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date, but does not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the reporting periods. Significant estimates and assumptions are inherent in the analysis and the measurement of deferred tax assets; the identification and quantification of income tax liabilities due to uncertain tax positions; and recoverability of goodwill. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and assumptions that it believes are reasonable. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Fair value is the price that would be received in the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure Topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value and requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:
Level 1. Observable inputs, such as quoted prices in active markets;
Level 2. Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
Level 3. Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
The Company evaluates assets and liabilities subject to fair value measurements on a recurring and non-recurring basis to determine the appropriate level at which to classify them for each reporting period. Due to their short-term nature, the carrying amounts reported in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements approximate the fair value for cash and cash

equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses. The Company determines the fair value of its $325 million senior secured term loan facility (2013 Term Facility) using pricing service quotations as quoted by Bloomberg (Level 2) (see Note 5). The Company believes the carrying value of its revolving credit facility (2013 Revolving Facility) approximates the fair value of the debt as the term and interest rate approximates the market rate (Level 2) (see Note 5). The Company determines the fair value of its $300 million aggregate principal amount of 4.50% senior notes due 2023 (Senior Notes) using a secondary market price on the last trading day in each period as quoted by Bloomberg (Level 2) (see Note 5).

Restricted Cash
As of December 31, 2014 and September 30, 2015, cash of $2.2 million and $2.4 million, respectively, was restricted as collateral for certain of the Company’s outstanding letters of credit and for deposits on leased facilities.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In September 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-16, Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments (Topic 805): Business Combinations, which requires that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The guidance is to be applied prospectively to adjustments to provisional amounts that occur after the effective date of the guidance, with earlier application permitted for financial statements that have not been issued. The Company does not expect that the adoption of this ASU will have a significant impact its consolidated financial statements.
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Under this standard, revenue is recognized when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which a company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. On July 9, 2015, the FASB decided to defer by one year the effective dates of the standard. As a result, the standard will be effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Companies may adopt the standard as early as the original effective date (i.e. annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016). Early adoption prior to that date is not permitted. The standard allows for either full retrospective adoption, meaning the standard is applied to all of the periods presented, or a modified retrospective adoption, meaning the standard is applied only to the most current period presented. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. ASU 2015-03 requires debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The guidance is effective retrospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Adoption prior to that date is permitted for financial statements that have not been previously issued. The adoption of ASU 2015-03 on the Company’s consolidated financial statements will result in a balance sheet reclassification of net deferred financing costs related to our 2013 Term Facility and Senior Notes (see Note 5). As of September 30, 2015, the Company’s deferred financing costs related to its 2013 Term Facility and Senior Notes were $13.9 million.

ACQUISITIONS
.CO Internet Acquisition
On April 14, 2014, the Company acquired .CO Internet S.A.S (.CO Internet) and certain associated assets. .CO Internet is the exclusive operator of the worldwide registry for Internet addresses with the “.co” top-level domain. This acquisition expanded the Company’s registry services, which already included the .biz and .us top-level domains. As of December 31, 2014, the preliminary purchase price was $115.1 million and the goodwill balance was $36.6 million. The allocation of the purchase price was preliminary pending the finalization of acquired deferred income tax assets and assumed income and non-income-based tax liabilities. As of September 30, 2015, the adjusted purchase price was $118.1 million and the adjusted goodwill balance was $39.6 million.  The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014 has been retrospectively adjusted to include the effect of the measurement period adjustments.
Bombora Acquisition
On July 30, 2015, the Company acquired Bombora Technologies Pty Ltd (Bombora). Bombora is the registry services provider for the “.au” top-level domain and many other top-level domains. This acquisition expanded the Company's registry services, which includes the .biz, .us and .co top-level domains. Total consideration for this purchase, which is subject to certain customary working capital adjustments, included cash consideration of $87.4 million, of which $55.5 million was paid to the sellers at closing and $31.9 million was deposited into escrow pending the satisfaction of certain performance obligations. The transaction was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with the Business Combination Topic of the FASB ASC.
The total preliminary purchase price was $91.8 million, consisting of cash consideration of $87.4 million and contingent consideration of $4.4 million, which is the estimated fair value of such consideration as of the acquisition date. Of the total preliminary purchase price, the Company recorded $44.9 million of definite-lived intangible assets, $69.8 million of goodwill, and $22.9 million of net liabilities. The definite-lived intangible assets consist of $37.8 million of client relationships and $7.1 million of acquired technology. The Company is amortizing client relationships on a straight-line basis over an estimated useful life of 5 to 13 years. Acquired technology is being amortized on a straight-line basis over an estimated useful life of 3 to 5 years. The allocation of the purchase price is preliminary pending the finalization of the acquired company's working capital as of the closing and the fair value of acquired deferred income tax assets and assumed income and non-income based tax liabilities. The goodwill is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company recorded $1.2 million and $2.0 million of acquisition costs in general and administrative expense related to this transaction.
Caller Authentication Assets Acquisition
On September 9, 2015, the Company announced it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire caller authentication assets from Transaction Network Services for approximately $220.0 million in cash. The Company expects the transaction will close in the fourth quarter of 2015, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

2013 Credit Facilities
On January 22, 2013, the Company entered into a credit facility that provided for a $325 million senior secured term loan facility (2013 Term Facility) and a $200 million senior secured revolving credit facility (2013 Revolving Facility, and together with the 2013 Term Facility, the 2013 Credit Facilities). The 2013 Revolving Facility and 2013 Term Facility mature on January 22, 2018. As of September 30, 2015, outstanding borrowings under the 2013 Revolving Facility were $175.0 million and available borrowings under the same facility were $8.2 million, exclusive of outstanding letters of credit totaling $16.8 million.
The 2013 Credit Facilities provide for mandatory prepayments with the net cash proceeds of certain debt issuances, insurance receipts, and dispositions. The 2013 Term Facility also contains certain events of default, upon the occurrence of which, and so long as such event of default is continuing, the amounts outstanding may, at the option of the required lenders, accrue interest at an increased rate and payments of such outstanding amounts could be accelerated, or other remedies undertaken.
Senior Notes
On January 22, 2013, the Company closed an offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 4.50% senior notes due 2023. The Senior Notes are the general unsecured senior obligations of the Company and are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of its domestic subsidiaries, or the Subsidiary Guarantors. Interest is payable on the Senior Notes semi-annually in arrears at an annual rate of 4.50%, on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning on July 15, 2013.
If the Company experiences certain changes of control together with a ratings downgrade, it will be required to offer to purchase all of the Senior Notes then outstanding at a purchase price equal to 101.00% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of purchase. If the Company sells certain assets and does not repay certain debt or reinvest the proceeds of such sales within certain time periods, it will be required to offer to repurchase the Senior Notes with such proceeds at 100.00% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of purchase.
The Senior Notes contain customary events of default, including among other things, payment default, failure to provide certain notices and defaults related to bankruptcy events. The Senior Notes also contain customary negative covenants.

As of September 30, 2015, a total of 2,362,135 shares were available for grant or award under the Company’s stock incentive plans and a total of 336,100 shares were available to be issued under the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP). On May 27, 2015, at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal to make an additional 3,000,000 shares available for grant under the Company’s stock incentive plans.

Performance Vested Restricted Stock Units
The fair value of a PVRSU is measured by reference to the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grant. The Company recognizes the estimated fair value of PVRSUs, net of estimated forfeitures, as stock-based compensation expense over the vesting period, which considers each performance period or tranche separately, based upon the Company’s determination of the level of achievement of the performance target. As of September 30, 2015, the level of achievement of the performance target awards for the 2015 performance years was greater than 100.0% of target.
In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company revised its estimate of the level of achievement of the performance target for the 2015 performance year to greater than 100.0% of target, resulting in an increase in stock-based compensation expense of approximately $0.4 million and $1.7 million, respectively. The Company’s consolidated net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $50.3 million and $141.6 million, respectively, and diluted net income per common share was $0.91 and $2.52 per share, respectively. If the Company had continued to use the previous estimate of achievement for each respective period, the as adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 would have been approximately $50.5 million and $142.7 million, respectively, and the as adjusted diluted net income per common share would have been approximately $0.92 and $2.54 per share, respectively.

INCOME TAXES
The Company’s effective tax rate increased to 35.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 from 30.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily due to a discrete benefit for the domestic production activities deduction recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2014, which was not applicable for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
As of December 31, 2014 and September 30, 2015, the Company had unrecognized tax benefits of $13.6 million and $17.3 million, respectively, of which $12.8 million and $16.4 million, respectively, would affect the Company’s effective tax rate if recognized.
The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense. During the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2015, the potential interest and penalties recognized by the Company were insignificant. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2015, the Company recognized potential interest and penalties of $0.1 million and $2.3 million, respectively. Interest and penalties are primarily due to uncertain tax positions assumed in acquisitions. To the extent interest and penalties are not assessed with respect to uncertain tax positions, amounts accrued will be reduced and reflected as a reduction of the overall income tax provision.
The Company files income tax returns in the United States federal jurisdiction and in many state and foreign jurisdictions. The tax years 2008 through 2014 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject. The IRS has initiated an examination of the Company’s federal income tax returns for the years 2009 through 2012 and of the 2010 federal income tax return of Neustar Information Services, Inc. (formerly TARGUSInformation Corporation), a subsidiary of the Company. While the ultimate outcome of the audits is uncertain, management does not currently believe that the outcome will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

CONTINGENCIES
On July 15, 2014, the Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System, or OFPRS, individually and on behalf of all other similarly situated stockholders, filed a putative class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, or the Alexandria Division, against the Company and certain of its senior executive officers.  The OFPRS complaint asserted claims for purported violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5 on behalf of those who purchased the Company’s securities between April 19, 2013 and June 6, 2014, inclusive, and sought unspecified compensatory damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ and experts’ fees, and injunctive relief.
On October 7, 2014, the Alexandria Division issued an order appointing lead counsel and designating The Indiana Public Retirement System, or IPRS, as lead plaintiff.  On November 6, 2014, the IPRS filed an amended complaint and on December 8, 2014, the Company moved to dismiss IPRS’s amended complaint.  On December 22, 2014, IPRS filed its opposition to the Company’s motion to dismiss.  On December 29, 2014, the Company filed a reply brief to the IPRS opposition.  The Alexandria Division heard oral arguments on the motions on January 22, 2015 and on January 27, 2015, and issued an order granting the Company’s motion to dismiss IPRS’s amended complaint with prejudice.  On February 25, 2015, counsel for IPRS filed a notice of appeal.
On July 28, 2015, the IPRS, on behalf of itself and the proposed settlement class, on the one hand, and certain of the Company's senior executive officers on the other hand, entered into a Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement with the Alexandria Division, which sets forth the terms and conditions of the proposed settlement of the claims. The Alexandria Division granted preliminary approval on September 22, 2015. The final hearing before the Alexandria Division is scheduled
