SANTA ANA, Calif.,-- The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF), has acquired privately held FAXXON Legal Information Services, Inc., the leading UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) search and filing company in the Midwestern United States. Terms of the transaction, which closed June 30, 2006, were not disclosed.

The objective of First American’s UCC Division is to grow its businesses of UCC insurance, search, filing and other corporate services both through acquisition and the expansion of its customer base. The acquisition of FAXXON represents another important step toward the achievement of that ultimate goal.
