Neustar to Be Acquired by TransUnion for $3.1 Billion

Paul, Weiss is advising Neustar in its $3.1 billion sale to TransUnion by a private investment group led by Golden Gate Capital and with minority participation by Singapore-based investment firm GIC. Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Neustar is an industry-leading identity resolution company with leading solutions in marketing, fraud and communications, serving more than 8,000 clients worldwide, including 60 of the Fortune 100.

The addition of Neustar’s data and analytics will enhance TransUnion’s position as a global information and insights company providing diverse, high-growth credit and non-credit solutions at scale. Neustar’s security business, which is excluded from the transaction, will become a Golden Gate Capital and GIC portfolio company following close. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

The Paul, Weiss team includes corporate partners Jeremy Veit and Austin Pollet; tax partner Robert Holo; intellectual property partners Jonathan Ashtor and Charles Googe, and counsel Michael Kurzer; litigation partner Andrew Finch, and counsel Jared Nagley and Steven Herzog; real estate partner Harris Freidus; executive compensation partner Lawrence Witdorchic and counsel Meghan Fox; and antitrust counsel Yuni Sobel.
