equifax inc (EFX) Key Developments

Equifax Inc. Announces Executive Changes

Equifax Inc. appointed Joseph M. 'Trey' Loughran, Chief Marketing Officer, succeeding Paul Springman, who has retired after 24 years of service. Prior to joining Equifax, Loughran worked at BellSouth Corporation where he held a number of leadership positions, his last being Managing Director of the company's Corporate Strategy and Planning department.

Equifax Inc. Joins Forces with Zoot Enterprises, Inc. to Launch MobilityPlus

Equifax Inc. has joined forces with Zoot Enterprises to launch MobilityPlus, solution that leverages Equifax data and Zoot decisioning technology to reportedly facilitate the mobile account opening process while helping to minimize fraud risk. MobilityPlus allows consumers to capture a photo of their ID on their smartphone or tablet to assist in auto-filling significant portions of their application, and in a matter of seconds, it performs a search-match analysis to help authenticate the consumer's identity, and determine whether the device in use may be associated with fraudulent activity. These processes pull in leading, knowledge-based identity questions and automated OFAC screening. This can be used at the point-of-sale to generate new DDA openings, or to cross-sell more credit cards or consumer loan products.

Equifax Seeks Acquisitions

Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX) is seeking acquisitions. Rick Smith, Equifax's Chief Executive Officer and President, said "We're investing in our business with CapEx in the range of $75 million to $100 million and continuing our acquisition focus."
