The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF) has acquired the noncontrolling ownership of First American CoreLogic.

The First American Corporation previously held an 82 percent ownership in the company.  First American CoreLogic is a key component of the company’s Information Solutions Group, which will be separated from the company’s Financial Services Group.

Total consideration for the transaction is $144 million. Fifty percent of this amount, $72 million, was paid in cash at closing on March 29, 2010.  The remaining 50 percent will be funded at a future date with equity valued at $72 million in The First American Corporation’s Information Solutions Group when it has become a standalone public company.

“The closing of the transaction to acquire the minority ownership interest in First American CoreLogic is a significant milestone in streamlining the ownership structure and financial flexibility of the Information Solutions Group as we prepare for our June 1, 2010, launch as an independent publicly traded company,” said Anand Nallathambi, CEO of the Information Solutions Group.
