StockMarketWire.com - Information services group Experian said Friday first-quarter performance was in line with expectations, supported by recent acquisitions.

The company left its full-year guidance unchanged.

For the three months ended 30 June, total revenue grew 10% at constant currency, from the same period a year ago, and 9% at actual exchange rates.

In North America, organic revenue growth was up 11% as B2B rose 12% and consumer services rose 8%, pushing total revenue growth to 13% supported by the Clarity Services acquisition.

In EMEA and Asia Pacific, total and organic revenue growth was 11% as more clients opted for the company's decisioning software such as PowerCurve.

In the UK and Ireland, organic revenue growth was 3% as B2B rose 7%, but consumer services fell 8%. Total revenue growth was 4%.

In Latin America, meanwhile, total and organic revenue growth was 4%.
