For the full year, based on the current level of domestic and international business activity, we anticipate revenue between $2.55 billion and $2.60 billion, and Adjusted EPS between $4.20 and $4.30.  Given the recent strength of the US dollar, at current exchange rates, we expect foreign currency to negatively impact 2015 revenue growth between 2% to 3%, and Adjusted EPS by approximately $0.12.  On a constant currency basis, revenue is expected to grow 7% to 10% in 2015.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted EPS is expected to grow 11% to 14%.

4.  How did your reportable segments change as a result of the organizational realignment in 2014?

Effective July 1, 2014, we implemented an organizational realignment which changed our internal structure resulting in four reportable segments: U.S. Information Solutions, International, Workforce Solutions and North America Personal Solutions. These reportable segments are described further below:

  • U.S. Information Solutions - consists of the former U.S. Consumer Information Solutions and U.S. portion of the former North America Commercial Solutions segment.
  • International - includes Latin America, Europe and Canada (now including Canada Commercial of the former North America Commercial Solutions segment).
  • Workforce Solutions - did not change.
  • North America Personal Solutions - did not change.

5.   How did your reportable segments change as a result of the organizational realignment in 2015?

In January 2015, we implemented an organizational realignment which changed our internal structure resulting in the following four reportable segments: U.S. Information Solutions, International, Workforce Solutions, and Personal Solutions. These reportable segments are described further below:

  • U.S. Information Solutions - changed in July 2014 as described above in Question 4, but is not affected by this change.
  • International - now excludes the personal solutions line of business in the United Kingdom.
  • Workforce Solutions - did not change.
  • Personal Solutions - now includes the legacy North America Personal Solutions segment and the personal solutions line of business in the United Kingdom.

Refer to Appendix A on page 22 for detailed information.

6. Can you provide a multi-year outlook* for your reportable segments under the new organizational structure effective in January 2015 (described in Question 5 above)?

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

Settlement of a legal dispute over certain software license agreements - During the third quarter of 2014, we recorded a settlement of a legal dispute over certain software license agreements of $7.9 million ($5.0 million, net of tax) in our USIS segment. Management believes excluding this charge is useful as it allows investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis. Management makes these adjustments to operating income when measuring operating profitability, evaluating performance trends, setting performance objectives and calculating our return on invested capital. This is consistent with how management reviews and assesses Equifax's historical performance and is useful when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.

Collection of certain reserved 2012 billings - During the fourth quarter of 2013, we recorded revenue of $7.2 million ($4.5 million, net of tax) that relates to the collection of revenue attributable to certain reserved billings prior to 2013 that did not originally meet the revenue recognition criteria due to collectability issues. Management believes excluding this revenue is useful as it allows investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis. Management makes these adjustments to revenue when measuring operating profitability, evaluating performance trends, setting performance objectives and calculating our return on invested capital. This is consistent with how management reviews and assesses Equifax's historical performance and is useful when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.

Charge related to resource realignment - During the fourth quarter of 2013, we recorded a restructuring charge primarily to realign internal resources with our strategic opportunities. This charge of $9.3 million, pretax, ($5.9 million, net of tax) is reflected in selling, general and administrative expenses in our Consolidated Statements of Income. Management believes excluding this charge from certain financial results provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014, as compared to the corresponding periods in 2013, since a charge 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.

Impairment of BVS investment - During the fourth quarter of 2013, we recorded an impairment of our cost method investment in BVS of $17.0 million, pretax, ($11.2 million, net of tax) in other expense in our Consolidated Statements of Income due to indicators of impairment that arose during the quarter. Management believes excluding this charge from certain financial results provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014, as compared to the corresponding periods in 2012, since a charge 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 continuing operations attributable to Equifax, adjusted for the settlement of a legal dispute over certain software license agreements, collection of certain reserved 2012 billings, resource realignment charge, BVS investment impairment, and acquisition-related amortization expense, net of tax - We calculate this financial measure by excluding the impact of acquisition-related amortization expense and including a benefit to reflect the material cash income tax savings resulting from the income tax deductibility of amortization for certain acquired intangibles. These financial measures are not prepared in conformity with GAAP. Management believes excluding the impact of amortization expense is useful because excluding acquisition-related amortization, and other items that are not comparable, allows investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis. Certain acquired intangibles result in material cash income tax savings which are not reflected in earnings. Management believes that including a benefit to reflect the cash income tax savings is useful as it allows investors to better value Equifax. Management makes these adjustments to earnings when measuring operating profitability, evaluating performance trends, setting performance objectives and calculating our return on invested capital.

Adjusted revenue, adjusted operating income and operating margin, excluding the settlement of a legal dispute over certain software license agreements, the collection of certain reserved 2012 billings, and resource realignment charge- Management believes excluding the settlement of a legal dispute over certain software license agreements, collection of certain reserved billings, and resource realignment charge from the calculation of operating income and margin, on a non- GAAP basis, is useful because management excludes 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 impact comparability.
