Nov 15 (Reuters) - Profits at Experian Plc rose 6
percent in the first half as the world's biggest credit checker
reported some initial gains from a data breach at U.S. rival
Equifax and broader growth across its operations.
The FTSE 100 company, which is best known for running
consumer credit checks for banks, landlords and retailers, said
operating profit rose to $518 million for the six months to
Sept. 30 from $490 million a year earlier.
