TransUnion Buys Neustar for $3.1 Billion

The other big news was credit bureau TransUnion’s deal to buy consumer data collector Neustar for $3.1 billion.  The price is just modestly above the $2.9 billion that Golden Gate Capital paid for Neustar in 2017, and roughly 5x Neustar’s $575 million revenue.   Apparently, the data business isn’t as attractive as it once seemed.
