ChoicePoint announced that it has sold part of its public records operations, specifically the businesses that collect bankruptcy, lien and judgment (BLJ) records and provide them on a wholesale, bulk basis to commercial enterprises around the country. The terms of the sale and the buyer were not disclosed but the transaction is not expected to have a material impact on ChoicePoint’s financial results.

In connection with the sale, ChoicePoint and the buyer also entered into a data access agreement that gives ChoicePoint the right to include BLJ information in its other products for a long-term period.

This transaction is part of ChoicePoint’s plan to divest certain non- strategic or under-performing assets as previously announced in the company’s news release announcing third quarter 2006 earnings.
