  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NeuStar is a provider of essential clearinghouse services to the North American communications industry and Internet service providers around the world. " (1/4/2017)
  • 2. Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. analysts commented, "This morning, NSR announced a proposal to separate itself into two different companies in order to improve strategic and managerial focus: the Information Services segment (Marketing + Security + related Data Services) and Order Management & Numbering Services segment (related Data Services + NPAC). The spin-off comes as no major surprise given Information Services can now generate enough cash flow to support itself going forward. No longer under the thumb of the NPAC business and Order & Numbering related data services, IS SpinCo can focus on NSR’s rapidly growing segments (i.e., Marketing, Security, and related Data services) while Order & Numbering Services addresses TAM ($1.2B) penetration."
