Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On March 23, 2006, the Company’s publicly traded subsidiary, First Advantage Corporation (“First Advantage”), issued an additional 1,650,455 shares of its Class B common stock to FADV Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of the Company that was formed for the purpose of holding the Company’s interest in First Advantage. The issuance of the Class B common stock was in accordance with the agreements entered into with First Advantage in connection with the Company’s contribution of its Credit Information Group (“CIG”) to First Advantage during the third quarter of 2005. Such contribution included the Company’s minority interest in DealerTrack Holdings, Inc. (“DealerTrack”). Pursuant to those agreements, First Advantage agreed to issue additional shares of Class B common stock to FADV Holdings LLC in the event that DealerTrack should consummate an initial public offering of its stock within a certain timeframe following the CIG contribution if the value of the contributed minority interest in DealerTrack, as determined by such initial public offering, exceeded $50 million. The initial public offering was completed by DealerTrack within the required timeframe, resulting in the required issuance of the 1,650,455 shares of First Advantage Class B common stock.
