Moody’s Corporation, through its subsidiaries, provides credit ratings; credit, capital markets and economic related research, data and analytical tools; software solutions and related risk management services; quantitative credit risk measures, financial services training and certification services; and outsourced research and analytical services to financial institutional customers. Segments The company operates through two segments, Moody’s Investors Service (MIS) and Moody’s Analytics (MA). MIS MIS publishes credit ratings on a range of debt obligations and the entities that issue such obligations in markets worldwide, including various corporate and governmental obligations, structured finance securities and commercial paper programs. Ratings revenue is derived from the originators and issuers of such transactions who use MIS ratings to support the distribution of their debt issues to investors. MIS provides ratings in approximately 120 countries. Ratings are disseminated via press releases to the public through various print and electronic media, including the Internet and real-time information systems used by securities traders and investors. As of December 31, 2015, MIS had ratings relationships with approximately 11,000 corporate issuers and approximately 20,000 public finance issuers. Additionally, the company has rated and monitored ratings on approximately 68,000 structured finance obligations (representing approximately 12,000 transactions). Additionally, MIS earns revenue from certain non-ratings-related operations which consist primarily of the distribution of research and financial instruments pricing services in the Asia-Pacific region as well as revenue from ICRA’s non-ratings operations. MA The MA segment develops a range of products and services that support financial analysis and risk management activities of institutional participants in global financial markets. Within its Research, Data and Analytics business, MA distributes research and data developed by MIS as part of its ratings process, including in-depth research on major debt issuers, industry studies, commentary on topical credit related events and also provides economic research and credit data and analytical tools, such as quantitative credit risk scores. Within its Enterprise Risk Solutions business, MA provides software solutions, as well as related risk management services. Within its Professional Services business it provides outsourced research and analytical services along with financial training and certification programs. MA customers represent approximately 4,700 institutions worldwide operating in approximately 140 countries. During 2015 Moody’s research website was accessed by approximately 259,000 individuals, including 34,000 client users. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy are to defend and enhance the core ratings and research business of MIS; build MA’s position as a leading provider of risk management solutions to financial institutions; and invest in strategic growth opportunities.
