Equifax, the multinational  listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 1971, recorded an increase in revenues of 11% in the fourth quarter of 2023, which reached 1.327 billion dollars.

  • Looking at the overall figure for 2023, growth is more limited and stops at 5.265 billion dollars (+3% compared to 2022). The significant 17% drop in mortgage sector revenues had a global impact.
  • Major milestones achieved in $210 million cloud spending reduction plan in 2023
  • Full-year 2024 guidance calls for revenue of $5.720 billion, up 8.6%, with strong non-mortgage local currency revenue growth of more than 10.5%

Begor, Chief Executive Officer of Equifax states: ” EBITDA margins are expected to expand to 33.3%, reflecting organic revenue growth and additional cost savings from cloud spend reduction plans as well as increased costs from normalization of incentive plans.
