CHICAGO, IL and SAO PAULO, BRAZIL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- TransUnion, a global leader in credit and information services, has signed an agreement to acquire control of ZipCode, one of the largest independent providers of registry information to companies in Brazil's information management sectors that include credit, fraud prevention and marketing. The acquisition provides TransUnion with new tools to deliver even more comprehensive data, analytics and decisioning capabilities in the Brazilian marketplace. Subject to regulatory review, TransUnion anticipates to close later this quarter. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
