Neustar Files Suit Against the FCC
#1
WENSDAY,8 April 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on April 8th,Neustar (NSR) is suing the FCC over the loss of the Local Number Portability contract which it held for 18 years. Neustar which has watched the price of its stock drop close to 50% from August 2, 2013 when the shares were at $55.71, initiated a $150 million share buyback once the contract loss was official.

Local Number portability refers to the ability of a “customer of record” of an existing fixed-line or mobile telephone number assigned by a local exchange carrier (LEC) to reassign the number to another carrier (“Service Provider Portability”), move it to another location (“Geographic Portability”), or change the type of service (“Service Portability”).

The contract at close to $450 million, represented nearly half of 2014 revenues for Neustar.

Neustar purchased .CO Internet S.A.S. last year for $109 million.

BizJournals.com covered the FCC suit, from the article:


NeuStar Inc. is suing the Federal Communications Commission over the agency’s recent recommendation to award a major contract for local number portability to rival Telcordia Technologies Inc., according to a filing made with the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C.

The FCC made its recommendation in a March 27 order, giving North American Portability Management LLC, a telecommunications industry consortium, the authority to begin negotiating a new contract with Telcordia.

NeuStar (NYSE: NSR) has asked that the court rescind the FCC’s order on the grounds that it is “unlawful.”
