FAIR, ISAAC AND COMPANY, INCORPORATED NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS NOTE 1 GENERAL In management's opinion, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements for Fair, Isaac and Company, Incorporated (the "Company") for the three months and nine months ended June 30, 2001 and 2000 have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial statements and include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals unless otherwise stated) that the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for such periods. However, the accompanying financial statements do not contain all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. All such financial statements presented herein are unaudited, however, the September 30 balance sheet has been derived from audited financial statements. This report and the accompanying financial statements should be read in connection with the Company's audited financial statements and notes thereto presented in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2000. Notes that would substantially duplicate the disclosures in the Company's audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2000, contained in the 2000 Form 10-K, have been omitted. The interim financial information contained in this Report is not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year ending September 30, 2001. Certain amounts in the financial statements and notes thereto have been reclassified to conform to the 2001 classifications. NOTE 2 EARNINGS PER SHARE The following reconciles the numerators and denominators of diluted and basic earnings per share (EPS): Nine months ended Three months ended June 30, June 30, -------------------- -------------------- (in thousands, except per share data) 2001 2000 2001 2000 -------- -------- -------- -------- Numerator - Net income $ 31,828 $ 19,793 $ 12,352 $ 7,712 ======== ======== ======== ======== Denominator - Shares: Diluted weighted-average shares 22,723 21,813 23,304 21,902 Effect of dilutive securities - employee stock options (899) (555) (1,176) (395) -------- -------- -------- -------- Basic weighted-average shares 21,824 21,258 22,128 21,507 ======== ======== ======== ======== Earnings per share: Diluted $ 1.40 $ 0.91 $ 0.53 $ 0.35 ======== ======== ======== ======== Basic $ 1.46 $ 0.93 $ 0.56 $ 0.36 ======== ======== ======== ======== The computation of diluted EPS for the three months ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, excludes stock options to purchase 22,000 and 444,000 shares of common stock, respectively. The computation of diluted EPS for the nine months ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, excludes stock options to purchase 276,000 and 260,000 shares of common stock, respectively. The shares were excluded because the exercise prices for the options were greater than the respective average market price of the common shares and their inclusion would be antidilutive. -6-

NOTE 3 CASH FLOW STATEMENT Supplemental disclosure of cash flow information: Nine months ended June 30, ----------------- (in thousands) 2001 2000 ------- ------- Income tax payments $15,588 $15,115 Interest paid 118 54 Non-cash investing and financing activities: Issuance of treasury stock to ESOP and ESPP $ 2,145 $ 1,706 Issuance of common stock 74 -- Assets acquired through capital lease financing -- 953 Cancellation of restricted stock -- 353 NOTE 4 NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS In July 2001, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Account Standards (SFAS) No. 141, "Business Combinations" and SFAS No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets". SFAS No. 141 requires that all business combinations be accounted for under the purchase method for business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001 for which the date of acquisition is July 1, 2001 or later. Use of the pooling-of-interest method is no longer permitted. SFAS No. 142 requires that goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives will no longer be amortized to earnings, but instead be periodically reviewed for impairment. SFAS No. 142 must be adopted starting with fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2001. The impact of adopting SFAS No. 141 and SFAS No. 142 has not been determined. In December 1999, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101 regarding recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue. SAB 101 is required to be implemented no later than the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2001. Management believes that the adoption of SAB No. 101 will not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. NOTE 5 SEGMENT INFORMATION Effective October 1, 2000, the Company reorganized its reportable segments based on a combination of two factors: industry and product. The reportable segments include Global Data Repositories & Processors (Alliance products and services which previously were included in the North American Financial Services and in Other International segments), Global Financial Services (bank and insurance industries excluding Analytic and LiquidCredit products, which was previously included in NetSourced Services and Other International segments), and Other (an aggregation of Analytic products, LiquidCredit products, the retail industry and telecommunications industry), each of which represented less than 10% and in aggregate represents 20% and 19%, respectively, of the Company's total revenue for the three months and the nine months ended June 30, 2001. Analytic and LiquidCredit products, now included in the "Other" segment, were previously included in the North American Financial Services, and Other International segments; and the retail industry and telecommunications industry, also now included in "Other", were previously included in the NetSourced Services and Other International segments. Each of these segments are managed and reported on separately within the organization. Significant changes include classifying all related international revenues and expenses within each reportable segment, separating Alliance products from Analytic products and classifying segments by major industries or products. The segment information for the three months and the nine months ended June 30, 2000 has been restated to conform to the fiscal year 2001 presentation. -7-

The Company's Chief Executive and Operating Officers evaluate segment financial performance based on segment revenues and operating income. Operating income is calculated as revenue less expenses such as personnel, facilities, consulting and travel. Unallocated other income consists mainly of interest income and net gain on sales of investments. The Company does not evaluate the financial performance of each segment based on its assets or capital expenditures.

The par value of the Company's common stock remains unchanged after the stock split. As a result of the stock split, the accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect an increase of 7,408,000 and 328,000 issued shares of common stock to the existing stockholders and the treasury stock, respectively and the transfer of the par value of the additional shares issued to existing stockholders of $74,000 from retained earnings, as well as cash payments totaling $49,517 in lieu of 1,004 fractional shares from the paid-in capital. All share and per share amounts have been restated to reflect the retroactive effect of the stock split. -9-

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS REVENUES As of October 1, 2000, we reorganized the operating structure of our business segments into three reportable segments on a worldwide basis: Global Data Repositories and Processors, Global Financial Services and Other, which are described below: * Global Data Repositories and Processors. This worldwide segment consists of our credit scoring services and insurance bureau scores distributed through major credit bureaus, including the three major credit bureaus in the United States--Trans Union Corporation, Experian Information Solutions, Inc. and Equifax Inc., our credit account management services which are distributed through third-party bankcard processors worldwide, our ScoreNet(R) services sold directly to credit grantors, our PreScore(R) services and insurance bureau scores sold through credit bureaus, the ScorePower(TM) online FICO(R) score delivery service sold jointly with Equifax directly to consumers, and other related products. The majority of these services generate revenues based on usage. * Global Financial Services. This segment is comprised of data processing, database management services and Internet delivery services provided directly for companies and organizations involved in direct marketing on a global basis, together with our Fair, Isaac MarketSmart Decision System(TM)("MarketSmart"), ClickPremium(TM), StrategyWare(R), and TRIAD(TM)products. In the third quarter we introduced a new product, our Credit Line Strategy Optimization (CLSO) product, developed for the financial services industry to help credit card issuers improve account profitability through optimal credit line assignments. MarketSmart and ClickPremium are sold on a usage basis and the TRIAD and StrategyWare products are generally sold to single users on a fixed-price basis. CLSO may be sold on a usage or fixed priced basis, or a combination of these. Global Financial Services products are sold under a combination of fixed-fee and usage-based pricing. * Other. This segment covers Analytics, LiquidCredit, Retail, and Telecommunications on a worldwide basis. Analytics products include our custom models, custom software and related consulting projects which are sold directly to credit grantors and other businesses and are used for screening lists of prospective customers, evaluating applicants for credit or insurance and managing existing credit accounts. Our LiquidCredit products are web-based products sold directly to credit grantors which automate the processing of credit applications including the implementation of our credit application scoring models. Retail products include MarketSmart for retail which are provided directly to companies and organizations in the retail market. Our Telecommunication products provided directly to companies in the telecommunications industry include Teleadaptive(TM)and MarketSmart for telecommunications. Products in the Other segment are priced in various ways. Other products developed specifically for a single user such as our application and behavior scoring models (also known as "Analytic Products," "scorecards" or "models") are generally sold on a fixed-price basis. Software systems usually also have a component of ongoing maintenance revenue, and LiquidCredit systems are sold under time or volume-based pricing arrangements. Comparative segment revenues, operating income, and related financial information in the three- and nine- months ended June 30, 2001 and the corresponding periods in fiscal 2000 are set forth in Note 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. -11-

The following table displays (a) the percentage of revenues by segment and (b) the percentage change in revenues from the prior fiscal year for the fiscal periods indicated. PERCENTAGE OF PERCENTAGE OF REVENUE REVENUE NINE MONTHS ENDED PERCENTAGE THREE MONTHS ENDED PERCENTAGE JUNE 30, CHANGE JUNE 30, CHANGE ------------- ------ ------------- ------ 2001 2000 2001 2000 ---- ---- ---- ---- Global Data Repositories And Processors 50% 51% 7% 51% 48% 17% Global Financial Services 31% 33% 3% 28% 33% (6%) Other 19% 16% 34% 21% 19% 23% --- --- --- --- Total Revenues 100% 100% 10% 100% 100% 11% === === === === The growth in Global Data Repositories and Processors revenues in the nine- and three- month periods ended June 30, 2001, compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year, was primarily due to increased revenues from the PreScore service and sales of new products, slightly offset by decreased revenues derived from the ScoreNet services. Revenues derived from alliances with credit bureaus and credit card processors have accounted for most of our revenue growth in the last three years. For the nine-month period ended June 30, 2001, revenues produced through credit bureaus increased approximately 7% compared to the same period in fiscal 2000 and accounted for approximately 37% of revenues. Revenues from services produced through credit bureaus increased 13% in fiscal 2000 and 14% in fiscal 1999, and accounted for approximately 37% of revenues in fiscal 2000 and 36% in fiscal 1999. Revenues from services provided through bankcard processors also increased in each of these years, primarily due to increases in the number of accounts at each of the major processors. While we have been successful in extending or renewing our agreements with credit bureaus and credit card processors in the past, and believe we will likely be able to do so in the future, the loss of one or more such alliances or an adverse change in terms could have a material adverse effect on revenues and operating margin. For the nine- month period ended June 30, 2001, revenues generated from our alliances with TransUnion Corporation, Equifax, Inc. and Experian Information Solutions, Inc. accounted for approximately 9%, 11% and 7%, of revenues, respectively. In fiscal 2000, TransUnion accounted for approximately 12% of our revenues; Equifax, approximately 10%; and Experian, approximately 7%. Revenues generated through our alliances with TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian accounted for approximately 10%, 9% and 7%, respectively in fiscal 1999. The increases in revenues in the nine-month period ended June 30, 2001 derived from the Global Financial Services segment compared with the same period in fiscal 2000 were due primarily to increased sales of StrategyWare products and sales of the new products, primarily MarketSmart and ClickPremium products and Fair, Isaac Decision System products. The decrease in revenues in the three-months ended June 30, 2001 compared to the corresponding period in fiscal 2000 primarily reflects a decline in sales of StrategyWare and other software products. The increase in Other segment revenues in the nine- and three- month periods ended June 30, 2001 compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year are primarily due to increases in sales of the LiquidCredit product. Total revenues derived from outside the United States represented approximately 19% of total revenues in the first nine-months of fiscal 2001 and in fiscal 2000. Revenues from software maintenance and consulting services each accounted for less than 10% of revenues in the first three quarters of 2001. -12-

EXPENSES The following table sets forth for the fiscal periods indicated (a) the percentage of revenues represented by certain line items in our Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income and (b) the percentage change in expenses for each such line item from the prior fiscal year's. NINE MONTHS THREE MONTHS ENDED PERCENTAGE ENDED PERCENTAGE JUNE 30, CHANGE JUNE 30, CHANGE ---------------- ------ --------------- ------ 2001 2000 2001 2000 ---- ---- ---- ---- Revenues 100% 100% N/A 100% 100% N/A Costs and expenses: Cost of revenues 45 43 6% 45 45 1% Research and development 9 11 (16%) 8 8 (1%) Sales, general and administrative 24 30 (21%) 23 30 (24%) Amortization of intangibles 1 1 (9%) 1 1 (7%) Restructuring Charge -- 1 N/A -- -- N/A --- --- --- --- Total costs and expenses 79 86 (8%) 77 84 (8%) --- --- --- --- Income from operations 21 14 47% 23 16 44% Other income, net 1 1 14% 1 1 7% --- --- --- --- Income before income taxes 22 15 44% 24 17 42% Provision for income taxes 9 6 43% 10 7 37% --- --- --- --- Net income 13% 9% 46% 14% 10% 45% === === === === COST OF REVENUES Cost of revenues consists primarily of personnel directly involved in creating revenue, travel and related overhead costs; costs of computer services; and the amounts paid to credit bureaus for scores and related information in connection with the ScoreNet Service. As compared with the same periods a year earlier, the cost of revenues, as a percentage of revenues, increased in the nine-month period ended June 30, 2001 primarily due to a more complete allocation of costs related to revenue generation that were not separately identified in the prior year. As a percentage of revenues, these expenses for the three-month period ended June 30, 2001, were substantially unchanged compared to the corresponding period of fiscal 2000. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT Research and development expenses include the personnel and related overhead costs incurred in new and existing product development, researching mathematical and statistical models and developing software aimed at improving productivity, profitability and management control. Research and development expenditures in the nine- and three- month periods ended June 30, 2001, as a percentage of revenues, were down as compared with the corresponding quarters of fiscal 2000, due primarily to redeployment of research and development personnel to support roles for our new products. SALES, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE Sales, general and administrative expenses consist principally of employee salaries and benefits, sales commissions, travel, overhead, advertising and other promotional expenses, corporate facilities expenses, the costs of administering certain benefit plans, legal expenses, business development, the costs of operating administrative functions, such as finance and computer information systems and compensation expenses for certain senior management. As a percentage of revenues, these expenses for the nine- and three- month periods ended June 30, 2001 decreased compared to the corresponding periods of fiscal 2000, due primarily to reductions in personnel costs, consulting costs, and travel expenses as a result of the Company's cost containment efforts. -13-

AMORTIZATION OF INTANGIBLES We are amortizing the intangible assets arising from various acquisitions over periods ranging from four to fifteen years. OTHER INCOME, NET Other income, net consists mainly of interest income from investments, interest expense, exchange rate gains/losses from holding foreign currencies in bank accounts, and other non-operating items. Other income, net increased in the nine- and three- month periods ended June 30, 2001, compared with the corresponding periods a year earlier, primarily due to an increase in interest income from higher investment balances, partially offset by our share of operating losses in an early stage development company accounted for using the equity method. PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES The Company's effective tax rate decreased from 41.3% to 40.8% in the nine-month period ended June 30, 2001, and from 41.3% to 40.0% in the three-month period ended June 30, 2001, compared to the same periods in fiscal 2000. The decrease was due primarily to revision of state tax rates to reflect increased activities in states with lower tax rates than anticipated. FINANCIAL CONDITION Working capital decreased to $93,586,000 at June 30, 2001 from $100,694,000 at September 30, 2000 due principally to the purchase of long-term investments and increase in cash provided by operating activities. Cash and marketable investments (short-term and long-term) increased to $126,543,000 at June 30, 2001 from $93,117,000 at September 30, 2000 as a result of stock option exercises and associated tax benefits. The Company's long-term obligations are mainly related to employee incentive and benefit obligations. We initiated a stock repurchase program to purchase up to one million shares of our common stock, to be funded by cash on hand in fiscal 1999. During the first half of fiscal 2001, we repurchased approximately 425,000 shares at a cost of $19.8 million. No shares were purchased in the third quarter of fiscal 200l. Since the program was initiated we have purchased a total of 785,000 shares at an aggregate cost of $32.1 million. We will continue to evaluate opportunities to repurchase shares under the program. We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents, short-term cash investments and cash expected to be generated from operations will be sufficient to meet our working capital, capital expenditure, and investment needs for both the current fiscal year and the foreseeable future. EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AND MONETARY UNION (EMU) Under the European Union's plan for Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), the euro becomes the sole accounting currency of EMU countries on January 1, 2002. Its initial phase went into effect on January 1, 1999, in 11 participating countries: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Greece was added as a participating country on January 1, 2001. In this initial phase the EMU mandated that key financial systems be able to triangulate conversion rates so that any amount booked will be logged and processed simultaneously in both the local currency and euros. We believe that our computer systems and programs are euro-compliant and have experienced no material disruptions to date. We also believe the conversion to the euro will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial results. RISK FACTORS OUR REVENUES ARE DEPENDENT, TO A GREAT EXTENT, UPON GENERAL ECONOMIC CONDITIONS AND MORE PARTICULARLY, UPON CONDITIONS IN THE CONSUMER CREDIT AND THE FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRIES. The majority of our revenues are derived from sales to the consumer credit industry. In addition, during the third quarter, approximately 31% of our revenues were derived from products in our financial services segment. A downturn in the consumer credit industry or the financial services industry caused by increases in interest rates or a tightening of credit, among other -14-

factors could harm our results of operations. The revenue growth and profitability of our business depends on the overall demand for our existing and new products. A softening of demand for our decisioning solutions caused by a weakening of the economy generally may result in decreased revenues or lower growth rates. In particular, one of the challenges we face in promoting future growth in revenues is the successful refocusing of our marketing and sales efforts to our new initiatives. There can be no assurance that we will be able to effectively promote future revenue growth in our business. Since 1990, while the rate of account growth in the US bankcard industry has been slowing and many of our largest institutional clients have merged and consolidated, we have generated most of our revenue growth from our bankcard-related scoring and account management business by cross-selling our products and services to large banks and other credit issuers. As this industry continues to consolidate, we may have fewer opportunities for revenue growth. QUARTERLY OPERATING RESULTS HAVE VARIED SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE PAST AND THIS UNPREDICTABILITY WILL LIKELY CONTINUE IN THE FUTURE. Our revenues and operating results have varied significantly in the past. We expect fluctuations in our operating results to continue for the foreseeable future. Consequently, we believe that period-to-period comparisons of our financial results should not be relied upon as an indication of future performance. It is possible that in some future periods our operating results may fall below the expectations of market analysts and investors, and in this event the market price of our common stock would likely fall. Factors that affect our revenues and operating results include the following: * A decrease in demand from our existing customers, particularly within our Global Data Repositories and Processor segment * The lengthy sales cycle of many of our products * Failure of our target markets and customers to accept our new products * Our ability to successfully and timely develop, introduce and market new products and product enhancements * The timing of our new product announcements and introductions in comparison with our competitors * Changes in the level of our operating expenses * Competitive conditions in the consumer credit industry * Competitive conditions in the financial services industry * Domestic and international economic conditions * Changes in prevailing technologies * Acquisition-related expenses and charges * Timing of orders for and deliveries of certain software systems * Increased operating expenses related to the development of products for the Internet and * Other factors unique to our product lines With the exception of the cost of ScoreNet service data purchased by us, most of our operating expenses are not affected by short-term fluctuations in revenues; thus, short-term fluctuations in revenues may have a significant impact on operating results. OUR ABILITY TO INCREASE OUR REVENUES IS HIGHLY DEPENDENT UPON THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND IF OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE NOT ACCEPTED BY THE MARKETPLACE, OUR BUSINESS MAY BE HARMED. We have a significant share of the available market for our traditional products and services, such as the products and services included in our Global Data Repositories and Processors segment. To increase our revenues, we must enhance and improve existing products and continue to introduce new products and new versions of existing products that keep pace with technological developments, satisfy increasingly sophisticated customer requirements and achieve market acceptance. We believe much of our future growth prospects will rest on our ability to expand into newer markets for our products and services, such as direct marketing, insurance, small business lending, retail and telecommunications. If our current or potential customers are not willing to switch to or adopt our electronic commerce solutions, our growth and revenues will be limited. The failure to generate a large customer base for our new -15-

products would harm our ability to grow and increase revenues. This failure could occur for several reasons. Some of our business-to-business electronic commerce competitors charge their customers large fees upon the execution of customer agreements. Businesses that have made substantial up-front payments to our competitors for electronic commerce solutions may be reluctant to replace their current solution and adopt our solution. As a result, our efforts to create a larger customer base may be more difficult than expected even if we are deemed to offer products and services superior to those of our competitors. Further, because the business-to-business electronic commerce market is new and underdeveloped, potential customers in this market may be confused or uncertain about the relative merits of each electronic commerce solution or which electronic commerce solution to adopt, if any. Confusion and uncertainty in the marketplace may inhibit current or potential customers from adopting our solution, which could harm our business, operating results and financial condition. THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW PRODUCTS. Significant undetected errors or delays in new products or new versions of a product, especially in the area of customer relationship management, may affect market acceptance of our products and could harm our business, results of operations or financial position. If we were to experience delays in the commercialization and introduction of new or enhanced products, if customers were to experience significant problems with the implementation and installation of products, or if customers were dissatisfied with product functionality or performance, our business, results of operations or financial position could be harmed. There can be no assurance that our new products will achieve significant market acceptance or will generate significant revenue. Additional products that we plan to directly or indirectly market in the future are in various stages of development. We are expanding our technology into a number of new business areas to foster long-term growth, including Internet/electronic commerce, online business services and Internet computing. These areas are relatively new to our product development and sales and marketing personnel. There is no assurance that we will compete effectively or will generate significant revenues in these new areas. The success of Internet computing and, in particular, our current Internet computing software products is difficult to predict because Internet computing represents a method of computing that is relatively new to the computer industry. The successful introduction of Internet computing to the market will depend in large measure on (i) the lower cost of ownership of Internet computing relative to client/server architecture, (ii) the ease of use and administration relative to client/server architecture, and (iii) the means by which hardware and software vendors choose to compete in this market. There can be no assurance that sufficient numbers of vendors will undertake this commitment, that the market will accept Internet computing or that Internet computing will generate significant revenues for us. FAILURE TO OBTAIN DATA FROM OUR CLIENTS TO UPDATE AND RE-DEVELOP OR TO CREATE NEW MODELS COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS. Updates of models and development of new and enhanced models depend to a significant extent on availability of statistically relevant data. Such data is usually obtained under agreements with our clients. Refusals by clients to provide such data or to obtain permission of their customers to provide such data, and privacy and data protection restrictions, could result in loss of access to required data. OUR BUSINESS AND THE BUSINESS OF OUR CLIENTS IS SUBJECT TO GOVERNMENT REGULATION AND CHANGES IN REGULATION. Our current and prospective clients, which primarily consist of credit bureaus, credit card processors, state and federally chartered banks, savings and loan associations, credit unions, consumer finance companies, other consumer lenders and insurers, as well as customers in the industries that we may target in the future, operate in markets that are subject to extensive and complex federal and state regulations. While we may not be directly subject to such regulations, our products and services must be designed to work within the extensive and evolving regulatory constraints in which our clients operate and to meet our client expectations with respect to handling data in conformity with applicable data protection laws. These constraints include federal and state truth-in-lending disclosure rules, state usury laws, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Community Reinvestment Act and the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. In September 1997, amendments to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act became law that expressly permits the use of credit bureau data to prescreen consumers for offers of credit and insurance and allows affiliated companies to share consumer information with each other subject to certain conditions. These amendments impose a seven-year moratorium on new state legislation on certain -16-

issues; however, score disclosure regulation by states is not pre-empted under this legislation and the states remain free to regulate the use of credit bureau data in connection with insurance underwriting. On September 30, 2000, the Score Disclosure Statute was signed into law in California and is the first legislation to require the disclosure of credit risk scores. The Score Disclosure Statute became effective July 1, 2001, and imposes significant new requirements on credit reporting agencies and residential mortgage creditors and brokers to disclose credit risk scores. In addition, there is a federal score disclosure bill pending, and other states may follow California's lead and pass score disclosure legislation. In March 2001, we launched, with Equifax, ScorePower(TM), an online score delivery service to consumers that delivers our FICO(R) credit risk score, with an explanation of the score, how it is derived, and steps consumers can take to actively maintain or improve their score over time. We believe enacted or proposed state regulation of the insurance industry has had some detrimental impact on our efforts to sell insurance risk scores through credit reporting agencies. For example, in California there is a draft of proposed regulation which would, if adopted, prohibit use of any credit information in the issuance, renewal, and cancellation of policies covering private passenger automobiles. An example of proposed legislation includes a Connecticut bill that will not allow use of bankruptcies, foreclosures, and liens in a model used in insurance underwriting. Providing an individual with control over what personal information a business collects and uses is a growing, global trend. The recent Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) includes several privacy provisions and introduces new controls over the transfer and use of individual data by financial institutions. Additional federal legislation is proposed. In addition over 400 state privacy bills are pending. On the International front, in the European Union (EU), the Data Protection Directive (the "EU Directive") became effective October 1998 and places strict controls on the collection, use and transfer of personal data. We have registered under the EU Directive in the UK, pledging to meet the EU level of adequate protection for personal data. We have another registration pending in Spain, and we are evaluating the desirability of registering in other countries. We expect increased costs of compliance with these regulations but such costs are not expected to have a material impact on our results of operations or financial condition. Furthermore, some consumer groups have expressed concern regarding the privacy and security of automated credit processing, the use of automated credit scoring tools in credit underwriting and whether electronic lending is a desirable technological development in light of the current level of consumer debt. The failure of our products and services to support customers' compliance with current regulations and to address changes in customers' regulatory environment, or our failure to comply with current regulations or adapt to changes in regulatory environment, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, could harm our business, results of operations and financial condition. OUR OPERATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES SUBJECT US TO UNIQUE RISKS THAT MAY HARM OUR RESULTS OF OPERATIONS. A growing portion of our revenues is derived from international sales. During the last fiscal year and the first nine months of fiscal 2001, we received approximately 19% of our revenues from business outside the United States. As part of our growth strategy, we plan to continue to pursue opportunities outside the United States. Accordingly, our future operating results could be negatively affected by a variety of factors, some of which are beyond our control. These factors include: * The general economic conditions in each country * Incongruent tax structures * Difficulty in managing an organization spread over various countries * Compliance with a variety of foreign laws and regulations * Import and export licensing requirements * Trade restrictions and tariffs * Longer payment cycles and * Volatile exchange rates for foreign currencies -17-

There can be no assurance that we will be able to successfully address each of these challenges in the near term. Some of our business is conducted in currencies other than the US dollar. Foreign currency translation gains and losses are not currently material to our financial position, results of operations or cash flows. An increase in our foreign revenues could subject us to increased foreign currency translation risks in the future. We have found it to be impractical to hedge all foreign currencies in which we conduct business. IF WE DO NOT RECRUIT AND RETAIN QUALIFIED PERSONNEL, OUR BUSINESS COULD BE HARMED. Our continued growth and success depend, to a significant extent, on the continued service of our senior management and other highly qualified key research, development, sales and marketing personnel and the hiring of new qualified personnel. Competition for highly skilled business, product development, technical and other personnel is intense. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in continually recruiting new personnel and in retaining existing personnel. In general, we do not have long-term employment or non-competition agreements with our employees. The loss of one or more key employees or our inability to attract additional qualified employees or retain other employees could harm our continued growth. WE RELY UPON OUR PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY RIGHTS AND IF WE ARE UNABLE TO PROTECT THEM, OUR BUSINESS COULD BE HARMED. Because the protection of our proprietary technology is limited, our proprietary technology could be used by others without our consent. Our success depends, in part, upon our proprietary technology and other intellectual property rights. To date, we have relied primarily on a combination of copyright, patent, trade secret, and trademark laws, and nondisclosure and other contractual restrictions on copying and distribution to protect our proprietary technology. We have approximately eighteen (18) patent applications filed and no issued patents to date. We cannot assure you that our means of protecting our intellectual property rights in the United States or abroad will be adequate or that others, including our competitors, will not use our proprietary technology without our consent. Furthermore, litigation may be necessary to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets, to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others, or to defend against claims of infringement or invalidity. Such litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and could harm our business, operating results and financial condition. WE MAY BE SUBJECT TO POSSIBLE INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS THAT COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS. With recent developments in the law that permit patenting of business methods, we expect that products in the industry segments in which we compete will increasingly be subject to claims of patent infringement as the number of products and competitors in our industry segments grow and the functionality of products overlaps. In addition, we expect to receive more patent infringement claims as companies increasingly seek to patent their software, also in light of recent developments in the law that extend the ability to patent software. Regardless of the merits, responding to any such claim could be time-consuming, result in costly litigation and require us to enter into royalty and licensing agreements which may not be offered or available on terms acceptable to us. If a successful claim is made against us and we fail to develop or license a substitute technology, our business, results of operations or financial position could be harmed. SECURITY IS IMPORTANT TO OUR BUSINESS, AND BREACHES OF SECURITY, OR THE PERCEPTION THAT E-COMMERCE IS NOT SECURE COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS. Internet-based, business-to-business electronic commerce requires the secure transmission of confidential information over public networks. Security breaches of networks on which netsourced products are used or well- publicized security breaches affecting the Internet in general, could significantly harm our business, operating results and financial condition. We cannot be certain that advances in computer capabilities, new discoveries in the field of cryptography, or other developments will not result in a compromise or breach of the technology we use to protect content and transactions on the networks on which the netsourced products and the proprietary information in our databases are accessed. Anyone who is able to circumvent our security measures could misappropriate proprietary, confidential customer information or cause interruptions in our operations. We may be required to incur significant costs -18-

to protect against security breaches or to alleviate problems caused by such breaches. Further, a well-publicized compromise of security could deter people from using the Internet to conduct transactions that involve transmitting confidential information. WE ARE DEPENDENT UPON MAJOR CONTRACTS WITH CREDIT BUREAUS. A substantial portion of our revenues is derived from contracts with the three major credit bureaus with usual terms of five years or less. In the first nine months of fiscal 2001, these contracts accounted for approximately 37% of our revenues and in the first nine months of fiscal 2000, accounted for approximately 38% of our revenues. If we are unable to renew any of these contracts on the same or similar terms with one or more of these credit bureaus, our revenues and results of operations may be harmed. WE MAY INCUR RISKS RELATED TO ACQUISITIONS OR SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT IN BUSINESSES. As part of our business strategy, we have made in the past and may make in the future acquisitions of, or significant investments in, businesses that offer complementary products, services and technologies. Although we do not currently have plans to do so, any acquisitions or investments will be accompanied by the risks commonly encountered in acquisitions of businesses. Such risks include, among other things, the possibility that we will pay much more than the acquired company or assets are worth, the difficulty of assimilating the operations and personnel of the acquired businesses, the potential product liability associated with the sale of the acquired company's products, the potential disruption of our ongoing business, the distraction of management from our business, the inability of management to maximize our financial and strategic position, the maintenance of uniform standards, controls, procedures and policies and the impairment of relationships with employees and clients as a result of any integration of new management personnel. These factors could harm our business, results of operations or financial position, particularly in the case of a larger acquisition. Consideration paid for future acquisitions, if any, could be in the form of cash, stock, rights to purchase stock or a combination thereof. Dilution to existing stockholders and to earnings per share may result in connection with any such future acquisitions. BACKLOG ORDERS MAY BE CANCELLED OR DELAYED. There is no assurance that backlog will result in revenues. We believe that increased revenue growth in fiscal 2001 and later years will depend to a significant extent on sales of newly developed products. BOOKINGS INCLUDE REVENUES EXPECTED TO BE DERIVED OVER THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACTS IN EXCESS OF CONTRACTUAL MINIMUMS. In our press release dated July 26, 2001 announcing financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2001, bookings of $132.0 million were reported by the Company. We define bookings as revenue recorded in the current quarter which has not been recognized as a booking in a previous period, plus the aggregate amount of future revenues expected to be derived by the Company over the life of contracts entered into during the reported quarter. Bookings are not limited to contractual minimums. -19-

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK Market Risk Disclosures. The following discussion about our market risk disclosures involves forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We are exposed to market risk related to changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and equity security price risk. We do not use derivative financial instruments for speculative or trading purposes. Interest Rate Sensitivity. We maintain an investment portfolio consisting mainly of income securities with an average maturity of less than five years. These available-for-sale securities are subject to interest rate risk and will fall in value if market interest rates increase. We have the ability to hold our fixed income investments until maturity, and therefore we would not expect our operating results or cash flows to be affected to any significant degree by the effect of a sudden change in market interest rates on its securities portfolio. We believe foreign currency and equity risks are not material. The following table presents the principal amounts and related weighted-average yields for our fixed rate investment portfolio at June 30, 2001: Cost Carrying Average Basis Amounts Yield -------- -------- ---- Cash and cash equivalents: Money market funds $ 9,494 $ 9,494 4.20% Short-term investments: US government obligations 11,925 11,987 4.10% Long-term investments: US government obligations 84,025 84,032 5.18% -------- -------- ---- Total $105,444 $105,513 ======== ======== -20-

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION ITEM 2. CHANGES IN SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS. On August 7, 2001, the Company's Board of Directors adopted a stockholder rights plan, pursuant to which one preferred stock purchase right (a "Right") was distributed for each share of Common Stock held as of August 21, 2001. Each Right, when exercisable, will entitle the holder to purchase from the Company one one-thousandth of a share of the Company's Series A Participating Preferred Stock at a price of $240.00 (the "Purchase Price"), subject to antidilution adjustments. In general, if a person or group (an "Acquiring Person") acquires beneficial ownership of 15% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, then each Right (other than those held by an Acquiring Person) will entitle the holder to receive, upon exercise, shares of Common Stock (or, under certain circumstances, a combination of securities or other assets) having a value of twice the Purchase Price. In addition, if following the announcement of the existence of an Acquiring Person the Company is involved in a business combination or sale of 50% or more of its assets or earning power, each Right (other than those held by an Acquiring Person) will entitle the holder to receive, upon exercise, shares of common stock of the acquiring entity having a value of twice the Purchase Price. When the foregoing rights arise, any Rights owned by an Acquiring Person will immediately become void. The Board of Directors will also have the right, after there is an Acquiring Person, to cause each Right (except those that have become void) to be exchanged for Common Stock or substitute consideration. The Company may redeem the Rights at a price of $0.001 per Right before the existence of an Acquiring Person is announced. The Rights expire on August 9, 2011. This summary description of the Rights does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Rights Agreement, which was filed as an exhibit to the Company's Registration Statement on Form 8-A filed on August 10, 2001. ITEM 6. EXHIBITS AND REPORTS ON FORM 8-K. (a) EXHIBITS: Not Applicable. (b) REPORTS ON FORM 8-K: A Form 8-K was filed during the quarter ended June 30, 2001. The report on Form 8-K was filed to report receipt of a letter dated April 23, 2001 from Robert D. Sanderson, one of the Company's directors, in which he resigned from the Company's Board of Directors effective April 23, 2001 and stated his disagreement with a proposal that the Company's Board of Directors grant Thomas G. Grudnowski, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, the option to purchase 50,000 shares of Company's common stock outside of Company's 1992 Long-term Incentive Plan. A second report on Form 8-K was filed after the quarter ended June 30, 2001 to report that the Company's Board of Directors has adopted a Stockholder Rights Plan as a means to guard against abusive takeover tactics. Under the Rights Plan, rights will be distributed as a dividend at the rate of one right for each share of Fair, Isaac common stock, held by stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 21, 2001. -21-
