On February 2, 2023, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Equifax Inc. (the “Company”) elected Karen L. Fichuk as an independent director, to serve a term expiring at the Company’s 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. With the election of Ms. Fichuk, the size of the Board is set at eleven directors, ten of whom are independent.

There have been no transactions since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year, and there are no currently proposed transactions, in which the Company was or is to be a participant and in which Ms. Fichuk or any member of her immediate family had or will have any interest, that are required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

The selection of Ms. Fichuk was not pursuant to any arrangement or understanding between her and any other person.

Ms. Fichuk will be compensated in accordance with the Company’s previously-disclosed compensation program for its non-employee directors as disclosed in the Company’s most recent proxy statement. Ms. Fichuk will also enter into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement for directors.
