Equifax Reports Record Second Quarter 2012 Results

ATLANTA, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  The company reported revenue of $535.8 million in the second quarter of 2012, a 10 percent increase from the second quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter revenue was up 14 percent in U.S. dollars and 15 percent in local currency, excluding Brazilian operating results due to the deconsolidation of Brazil in the second quarter of 2011.

Second quarter diluted EPS attributable to Equifax was $0.62. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS attributable to Equifax, excluding the loss on the deconsolidation of Brazil and the impact of acquisition-related amortization expense, net of tax, was $0.74, up 21 percent from the second quarter of 2011.

"Broad-based revenue growth and operating performance were ahead of our expectations in the second quarter as our four largest business segments continued to execute well against their strategic objectives," said Richard F. Smith, Equifax's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "While mortgage activity continues to be strong, we do expect it to slow down later in 2012. However, the core non-mortgage revenue growth continues to be within the range of our long term business model as our investments in new product innovation and key strategic growth initiatives continue to pay off."

Second Quarter 2012 Highlights   

  • In addition to the financial highlights noted above, second quarter 2012 net income attributable to Equifax was $76.4 million, a 122 percent increase and a 23 percent increase on a non-GAAP basis from the prior year excluding the loss on the deconsolidation of Brazil. 
  • Operating margin was 24.8 percent for the second quarter of 2012, up 130 basis points from the second quarter of 2011.

Common Questions & Answers (Unaudited)








(Dollars in millions)

















2.

What drove the fluctuation in the effective tax rate?








Our effective tax rate was 35.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 down from 59.4% for the same period in 2011 due primarily


to the impact of recording $17.5 million of tax expense associated with the Brazilian Transaction that occurred in 2011.  The impact of the


Brazilian Transaction increased our effective tax rate 23.2% for the quarter in 2011.  The effective income tax rate on the Brazilian Transaction 


is higher than the statutory rate primarily due to the recognition of tax impacts related to foreign currency changes for which we had not 


previously recorded tax expense because we have historically been permanently invested in Brazil with respect to foreign currency


fluctuations. The remainder of the rate decrease is due to the impact of lower foreign income taxes and the reversal of certain contingent 


tax liabilities.

Notes to Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to the Comparable GAAP Financial Measures

Loss on the deconsolidation of Brazilian business – During the second quarter of 2011, the Company completed the merger of our Brazilian business with and into Boa Vista Servicos, S.A. ("BVS") in exchange for a 15 percent equity interest in BVS.  The Company recorded a $27.8 million loss on the transaction.  Management believes excluding the loss from certain financial results provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 2012, since a loss of such an amount is not comparable among the periods.  This is consistent with how our management reviews and assesses Equifax's historical performance and is useful when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.

Diluted EPS and net income from attributable to Equifax, adjusted for the loss on the deconsolidation of Brazilian business and acquisition-related amortization expense - We calculate these financial measures by excluding the loss on the deconsolidation of our Brazilian business and acquisition-related amortization expense from the determination of net income attributable to Equifax in the calculation of diluted EPS.  These financial measures are not prepared in conformity with GAAP.  Management believes that these measures are useful because management excludes acquisition-related amortization expense and other items that are not comparable when measuring operating profitability, evaluating performance trends, and setting performance objectives, and it allows investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis by excluding items that relate to acquisition-related intangible assets and items that impact comparability.

Adjusted operating revenue, excluding the results of our Brazilian operations - Management believes excluding the Brazilian revenue from the calculation of operating revenue, on a non-GAAP basis, is useful because it allows investors to evaluate the Company's growth on a basis consistent with the current composition of our business.
