First American Financial Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, total revenue was $1,255.5 million against $1,219.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. Income before income taxes was $122.9 million against $84.8 million last year. Net income attributable to the company was $80.5 million or $0.74 per diluted share against $51.6 million or $0.48 per diluted share last year. Cash flow from operations was $182.4 million. Adjusted net income rose to $0.82 per share from $0.51 in the year-ago period. Capital expenditures were $33 million, up from $26 million in the fourth quarter of last year due to increases in capitalized software, title plans and capitalized data.

For 2015, the company expects net expenses to increase to $100 million in 2015, primarily as a result of 2 factors: first, the company will incur $14 million of interest expense throughout 2015 as a result of the $300 million senior notes transaction the company closed in November; second, the company will incur an additional $9 million of expense related to defined benefit plans in 2015.
