Equifax cuts FY'19 adjusted EPS outlook once again

Equifax Inc. cut its outlook for full-year 2019 adjusted EPS and issued its revenue outlook for the year.

The analytics company is now expecting full-year adjusted EPS of $5.55 to $5.60, down from $5.57 to $5.77 in the previous guidance. It also expects reported revenue of $3.51 billion to $3.52 billion for the year, reflecting local currency growth of 5% compared to 2018, partially offset by an expected 2% negative impact of foreign exchange.

The S&P Global Market Intelligence consensus normalized EPS estimate for the year is $5.59.

Equifax expects fourth-quarter adjusted EPS of $1.47 to $1.52. Fourth-quarter revenue is anticipated to be $885 million to $900 million, reflecting local currency growth of 7.5% to 9.5%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, partially offset by an expected about 1.5% negative impact of foreign exchange.

The S&P Global Market Intelligence consensus normalized EPS estimate for the fourth quarter is $1.53.

The company reported third-quarter adjusted net income attributable to the company of $181.4 million, or $1.48 per share, up from $171.9 million, or $1.41 per share in the year-ago period. During the third quarter, Equifax incurred a $77.0 million charge related to its 2017 data breach incident.

The S&P Global Market Intelligence consensus normalized EPS estimate for the third quarter was $1.45.

GAAP net income attributable to the company surged on a year-over-year basis to $81.1 million, or 66 cents per share, from $38.4 million, or 32 cents per share.
