On a GAAP basis, operating income was $154.3 million, up 13 percent from the prior year period. During the quarter, the Company also incurred transition costs of $3.0 million as compared to $3.4 million in the prior year period.

See attached Schedule 3 for additional detail.

Share repurchases during the quarter, under the Company's one-year, $200 million share repurchase program commenced in October 2006, totaled $75.0 million. These repurchases are in addition to the Company's repurchases to offset the dilutive effect of shares issued under employee benefits plans, which totaled $76.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2006.

The Company ended the quarter and the year with $138.4 million of cash and cash equivalents.



    Fourth Quarter 2006 Segment Results

    United States

Core and total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $335.8 million, up 8 percent from $311.9 million in the prior year period.

U.S. core revenue results for the 2006 fourth quarter reflect the following:

    --  Risk Management Solutions revenue of $173.6 million, up 5
        percent;

    --  Sales & Marketing Solutions revenue of $125.2 million, up 9
        percent;

    --  E-Business Solutions revenue of $22.8 million, up 20 percent;
        and

    --  Supply Management Solutions revenue of $14.2 million, up 12
        percent.

    See attached Schedules 4 and 5 for additional detail.

Operating income for the quarter was $140.3 million, up 2 percent from the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily due to improved revenue in the U.S. segment and benefits from the Company's Financial Flexibility program, partially offset by costs associated with our revenue generating investments, higher benefit costs and the effect of the adoption of SFAS No. 123R.



International

Core and total revenue for the fourth quarter was $101.7 million, up 5 percent (down 1 percent before the effect of foreign exchange) from $97.1 million in the prior year quarter. During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Italian Real Estate Data business had a negative 7 point impact on International revenue results, primarily due to the impact of ongoing legislative changes in Italy. All of this impact is reflected in the Risk Management Solutions results.

See attached Schedule 4 for additional detail.

International core revenue results for the fourth quarter of 2006 reflect the following:

    --  Risk Management Solutions revenue of $79.3 million, up 1
        percent (down 4 percent before the effect of foreign
        exchange);

    --  Sales & Marketing Solutions revenue of $19.4 million, up 18
        percent (up 12 percent before the effect of foreign exchange);

    --  E-Business Solutions revenue of $1.8 million, up 89 percent
        (up 80 percent before the effect of foreign exchange);

    --  Supply Management Solutions revenue of $1.2 million, down 5
        percent (down 11 percent before the effect of foreign
        exchange).

    See attached Schedules 4 and 5 for additional detail.


Operating income for the quarter was $34.6 million, an increase of 29 percent from the prior year quarter. This increase was primarily driven by a $7.5 million accrual reversal with our Italian Real Estate Data business, which we recognized in the fourth quarter of 2006. The accrual reversal was the result of our successes in challenging the validity of certain tax increases and related legislative developments impacting the cost of our data acquisition from the Italian government.

Full Year Results

Diluted earnings per share before non-core gains and charges for 2006 were $3.97, up 14 percent from the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported 2006 diluted earnings per share of $3.70, up 16 percent from the prior year period.

See attached Schedule 3 for a reconciliation of earnings per share before non-core gains and charges to earnings per share on a GAAP basis.

Core and total revenue for the year was $1.531 billion, up 6 percent (both before and after the effect of foreign exchange) over the prior year period.

    Core revenue results for the full year 2006 reflect the following:

    --  Risk Management Solutions revenue of $985.5 million, up 3
        percent (both before and after the effect of foreign
        exchange);

    --  Sales & Marketing Solutions revenue of $412.2 million, up 8
        percent (both before and after the effect of foreign
        exchange);

    --  E-Business Solutions revenue of $88.7 million, up 27 percent
        (both before and after the effect of foreign exchange); and

    --  Supply Management Solutions revenue of $44.9 million, up 19
        percent (up 20 percent before the effect of foreign exchange)

    See attached Schedules 4 and 5 for additional detail.

Operating income before non-core gains and charges was $427.9 million for 2006, up 8 percent from 2005, with contributions from both the U.S. and International segments. On a GAAP basis, operating income for 2006 was $402.4 million, up 11 percent from the year ago period. GAAP results include $25.5 million of non-core charges in 2006 and $31.1 million of non-core charges in 2005. During the year, the Company also incurred transition costs of $16.9 million as compared to $21.5 million in the prior year period.

See attached Schedule 3 for additional detail.

Net income before non-core gains and charges for the year was $258.4 million, up 7 percent from the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, net income was $240.7 million, up 9 percent from the prior year period.

See attached Schedule 3 for additional detail.

Free cash flow for full-year 2006, excluding the impact of legacy tax payments, was $297.5 million, up 5 percent from the prior year period. The Company paid $45.6 million in 2006 in connection with its legacy tax matters. Free cash flow includes the effect of our adoption of expensing stock options pursuant to SFAS No. 123R, which resulted in a reclassification of $39.6 million from Cash Flow from Operating Activities to Cash Flow Used in Financing Activities in 2006.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures and additions to computer software and other intangibles. Net cash provided by operating activities excluding $45.6 million of legacy tax payments was $350.5 million for full-year 2006, up 12 percent from the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, net cash provided by operating activities was $304.9 million, up 17 percent from the prior year period.



See attached Schedule 4 for additional detail.

Share repurchases during 2006 totaled $662.7 million. Of this total, $375.0 million related to authorized special programs, while $287.7 million was used to offset the dilutive effect of shares issued under employee benefit plans. As a reminder, in September 2006, we completed our two-year, $500 million share repurchase program that we commenced in the first quarter of 2005 and thus commenced a new one-year, $200 million program in October 2006.

    Full Year Segment Results

    United States

Core and total revenue for 2006 was $1.164 billion, up 7 percent from the prior year period.

        percent.

    See attached Schedules 4 and 5 for additional detail.

Operating income for 2006 was $425.8 million, up 5 percent over the prior year. The increase was primarily due to improved revenue in the U.S. segment and benefits from the Company's Financial Flexibility program, partially offset by costs associated with our revenue generating investments, higher benefit costs, the effect of the adoption of SFAS No. 123R and increased costs associated with the acquisition of Open Ratings in the first quarter of 2006.

International

Core and total revenue for 2006 was $367.1 million, up 3 percent (both before and after the effect of foreign exchange) from the prior year. During 2006, the Italian Real Estate Data business had a negative 3 point impact on International revenue results, primarily due to the impact of ongoing legislative changes in Italy. All of this impact is reflected in the Risk Management Solutions results.

See attached Schedule 4 for additional detail.

International core revenue results for full-year 2006 reflect the following:

    --  Risk Management Solutions revenue of $300.8 million, up 1
        percent (both before and after the effect of foreign
        exchange);

    --  Sales & Marketing Solutions revenue of $56.4 million, up 10
        percent (both before and after the effect of foreign

        (up 96 percent before the effect of foreign exchange); and

    --  Supply Management Solutions revenue of $4.4 million, up 3
        percent (up 4 percent before the effect of foreign exchange).

    See attached Schedules 4 and 5 for additional detail.

Operating income before non-core gains and charges for the year was $83.3 million, up 33 percent from the prior year. This increase was driven in part by a $7.5 million accrual reversal with our Italian Real Estate Data business, which we recognized in the fourth quarter of 2006. The accrual reversal was the result of our successes in challenging the validity of certain tax increases and related legislative developments impacting the cost of our data acquisition from the Italian government. On a GAAP basis, operating income was $83.3 million, up 34 percent from the prior year.

    See attached Schedule 3 for additional detail.

    Non-Core Gains and Charges

During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company recorded a net pre-tax, non-core charge of $1.3 million.

For the full year of 2006, the Company recorded a net pre-tax, non-core charge of $25.5 million and a non-core charge for taxes of $0.8 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company recorded a net pre-tax, non-core charge of $9.1 million.

For the 2005 full year, the Company recorded a net pre-tax, non-core charge of $30.5 million and a net non-core gain for taxes of $1.6 million.



See attached Schedule 3 for additional detail.

D&B's restructuring charges may be viewed as recurring as they are part of its Financial Flexibility initiatives. In addition to reporting GAAP results, the Company reports results before restructuring charges and other non-core gains and charges because they are not a component of its ongoing income or expenses and may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the results of its ongoing underlying business operations. For additional information, see the section titled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

Dividend Initiation

D&B today announced that its Board of Directors has declared the Company's first quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share. This initial quarterly cash dividend is payable on March 29, 2007, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 8, 2007.

Full Year 2007 Outlook



The Company recently provided the following full year 2007 financial guidance:

    --  Core revenue growth of 6 percent to 8 percent, before the
        effect of foreign exchange, all of which will be organic;

    --  Operating income growth before non-core gains and charges of 8
        percent to 10 percent;

    --  Diluted EPS growth of 13 percent to 16 percent before non-core
        gains and charges;

    --  Free cash flow of $310 million to $325 million. As a reminder,
        the Company's free cash flow outlook excludes the impact of
        any payments made in connection with the Company's legacy tax
        matters; and

    --  Tax rate before non-core gains and charges of approximately 37
        percent to 38 percent.

D&B does not provide guidance on a GAAP basis because D&B is unable to predict, with reasonable certainty, the future movement of foreign exchange rates or the future impact of non-core gains and charges, such as restructuring charges and legacy tax matters, which are a component of the most comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-core gains and charges are uncertain and will depend on several factors, including industry conditions, and could be material to D&B's results computed in accordance with GAAP.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

D&B reports non-GAAP financial measures in this press release and the schedules attached. D&B reports core revenue and core revenue growth before the effects of foreign exchange. Additionally, the Company reports organic revenue growth and each of operating income, operating margin, net income, diluted earnings per share and tax rate (defined as Provision for Income Taxes divided by Income before Provision for Income Taxes) before non-core gains and charges, and free cash flow. See "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - How We Manage Our Business" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2005, filed March 1, 2006 with the SEC, for a discussion of how the Company defines these measures, why it uses them and why it believes they provide useful information to investors. These measures are defined in Schedule 3 attached to this earnings release.



Fourth-Quarter and Full Year 2006 Teleconference

D&B will review its fourth quarter and full year 2006 financial results as well as its 2007 outlook, in a conference call with the investment community on Friday, February 2, 2007, at 10 a.m. ET.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

This press release, including, in particular, the section titled "Full-Year 2007 Outlook," contains projections of future results and other forward-looking statements that involve a number of trends, risks and uncertainties, and are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

The following important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in such forward-looking statements.



    --  D&B relies significantly on third parties to support critical
        components of its business model in a continuous and
        high-quality manner, including third-party data providers,
        strategic partners in its Worldwide Network, and outsourcing
        partners.

    --  Demand for D&B's products is subject to intense competition,
        changes in customer preferences and, to a lesser extent,
        economic conditions which impact customer behavior.

    --  The profitability of D&B's International segment depends on
        its ability to identify and execute on various initiatives,
        such as the implementation of subscription plan pricing and
        successfully managing its Worldwide Network, and to identify
        and contend with various challenges present in foreign
        markets, such as local competition and the availability of
        public records at no cost.

    --  D&B's ability to renew large contracts, the related revenue
        recognition and the timing thereof may impact its results of
        operations from period to period.

    --  D&B's results are subject to the effects of foreign economies,
        exchange rate fluctuations, legislative or regulatory
        requirements, such as the adoption of new or changes in
        accounting policies and practices, including pronouncements by
        the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other
        standard-setting bodies, and the implementation or
        modification of fees or taxes that we must pay to acquire,
        use, and/or redistribute data. In particular, D&B's results
        have been, and may continue to be, significantly impacted by
        legislative changes affecting the fees charged by the Italian
        government to acquire and/or re-use data.

    --  D&B's solutions and brand image are dependent upon the
        integrity of its global database and the continued
        availability thereof through the Internet and by other means,
        as well as our ability to protect key assets, such as data
        center capacity.

    --  D&B is involved in various tax matters and legal proceedings,
        the outcomes of which are unknown and uncertain with respect
        to the impact on D&B's cash flow and profitability. See the
        Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly
        Reports on Form 10-Q and notes to the financial statements
        included therewith, for a more detailed description of these
        matters.

    --  D&B's ability to successfully implement its Blueprint for
        Growth Strategy requires that it successfully reduce its
        expense base through its Financial Flexibility initiatives,
        and reallocate certain of the expense base reductions into
        initiatives that produce desired revenue growth.

    --  D&B's future success requires that it attract and retain
        qualified personnel in regions throughout the world.

    --  D&B's ability to repurchase shares is subject to market
        conditions, including trading volume in its stock, and its
        ability to repurchase securities in accordance with applicable
        securities laws.

    --  D&B's ability to acquire and successfully integrate other
        complementary businesses, products and technologies into its
        existing business, without significant disruption to its
        existing business or to its financial results.

    --  D&B's projection for free cash flow in 2007 is dependent upon
        its ability to generate revenue, its collection processes,
        customer payment patterns, the timing and volume of stock
        option exercises, the amount and timing of payments related to
        the tax and other matters and legal proceedings in which it is
        involved, as referenced above and as more fully described in
        the Company's filings with the SEC, including its most recent
        Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q
        and notes to the financial statements included therewith.


For a more detailed discussion of the trends, risks and uncertainties that may affect D&B's operating and financial results and its ability to achieve the financial objectives discussed in this press release, readers should review the Company's most recent filings with the SEC, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Copies of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q are available on its Web site at www.dnb.com and on the SEC's web site at www.sec.gov.

N/M - Not Meaningful
The following defines the non-GAAP measures used to evaluate
 performance:
* Total revenue excluding the revenue of divested businesses is
 referred to as "core revenue." Core revenue includes the revenue from
 acquired businesses from the date of acquisition.
* Core revenue growth, excluding the effects of foreign exchange, is
 referred to as "revenue growth before the effects of foreign
 exchange." We also separately analyze core revenue growth before the
 effects of foreign exchange among two components, "organic core
 revenue growth" and "core revenue growth from acquisitions."  In
 addition, we analyze core revenue both before and after the financial
 results of our Italian real estate data business because of the
 distortion of comparability of financial results due to significant
 price increases implemented in 2005 in response to legislative
 changes and the uncertainty of other regulatory changes.
* Results (such as operating income, operating income growth,
 operating margin, net income, tax rate and diluted earnings per
 share) exclude Restructuring Charges (whether recurring or non-
 recurring) and certain other items that we consider not to reflect
 our underlying business performance. We refer to these Restructuring
 Charges and other items as "non-core gains and (charges)."
* Net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures
 and additions to computer software and other intangibles is referred
 to as "free cash flow."
* Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities minus short-term
 debt and long-term debt is referred to as "net debt position."

This financial information should be read in conjunction with the
 consolidated financial statements and related notes of The Dun &
 Bradstreet Corporation contained in filings with the Securities and
 Exchange Commission.
