09.16.2010

Latest Version of TRA's Patented Web-Based System Will Match Aggregated Auto Ownership Data with Television Tuning Data

TRA also Adds Enhanced Experian Demographic Categories

New York, NY - September 16th, 2010 -TRA, Inc. announced today that it has released Media TRAnalytics® 2.6. This version of TRA's patented business intelligence software solution furthers TRA's partnership with Experian Marketing Services, a division of Experian plc, and features the expansion of product categories beyond consumer package goods (CPG) products, that will help advertisers, agencies and television networks improve the ROI of television advertising.

TRA is enabling clients to measure the impact of television advertising on auto sales and to increase return on investment (ROI) through improved media selection of the most responsive audiences for specific makes of cars, by matching aggregate level Automotive Ownership data from Experian's Auto Market StatisticsSM product with its own 1.5 million television set top box panel. Media TRAnalytics® 2.6 will also feature enhanced demographics from Experian and customized categories for products and services such as Moviegoing, Quick Serve Restaurants Patronage, (QSR) Wireless Carrier Usage and Financial Services.

Media TRAnalytics® is a web-based business intelligence software solution that already matches 1.5 million households of TV data with 54 million households of CPG purchase data for the largest single-source database -- 370,000 households. Since the official launch 2 years ago, broadcast and cable networks, consumer packaged goods companies and media agencies have been using Media TRAnalytics® to identify "the right audienceTM" and TV ROI patterns in their media planning, buying and selling to improve return on media investment. This enhancement represents the eighth release of TRA's
Media TRAnalytics®, all of which have been based on feedback from customers and the
marketplace.

Now, by working with Experian to add Auto Market StatisticsSM and enhanced demographic categories, clients will be provided with new and critical insights into purchasing behavior and ROI. This announcement builds on TRA's long-standing relationship with Experian. Over the past 2 years, Experian has supplied TRA with anonymous demographic data and has partnered with TRA on its industry leading privacy solution.

Mark Lieberman, Chairman and CEO of TRA said: "This announcement furthers TRA's commitment to work closely with our clients to continually enhance the value of our solution against their most pressing business issues. We are excited to expand our partnership with Experian and launch the latest version of our innovative software." "As new technologies emerge, advertisers can better understand how to connect with consumers by delivering messages that are more relevant and timely," said Mike Balducci, senior vice president and general manager of Experian Digital Advertising Services. "Integrating automotive data and enhanced demographic categories into the Media TRAnalytics® system will help advertisers improve their ROI."
