First American Financial Corp. and CoreLogic today announced the formal separation of the two companies. First American provides title insurance and other services for residential and commercial real estate sales.

At the end of April, First American assigned the CoreLogic name to its information-provider group ahead of the formal announcement. Both will be publicly traded companies. The First American Corp, which assumed the name CoreLogic, distributed one share of First American Financial common stock for each common share of the First American Corp. outstanding as of May 26.
