Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Fair Isaac (NYSE: FICO) price target of $48.00.

Analyst, Manav Patnaik, said, "Strategically, based on our channel checks, we view FICO's acquisition of Adeptra as very complementary to FICO's fraud suite (partners since 2002; no further investment/integration required). The $115M price tag equates to 2.6x LTM revenues and 25.6x EBITDA. However, if top-line cross-sell and certain cost synergies are realized FICO expects Adeptra's EBITDA margins to rise to 26%+ by FY14 - making the FY13 multiple more reasonable at 10x."

FY12 EPS estimate lowered from $2.59 to $2.57 and FY13 from $3.18 to $3.17.
