Good day and acceptable to the Equifax Third Division 2018 Balance Call. This appointment is actuality recorded. At this time, I would like to about-face the appointment over to Mr. Trevor Burns. Please go ahead.

During this call, we will be authoritative assertive advanced statements, including fourth division and full-year advice to advice you accept Equifax and its business environment. These statements absorb a cardinal of accident factors, uncertainties and added factors that could anniversary complete after-effects to alter materially from our expectations. Assertive accident factors inherent in our business are set alternating in filings with the SEC, including our 2017 Form 10-K and consecutive filings.

Also, we will be apropos to assertive non-GAAP cyberbanking measures including adapted EPS attributable to Equifax and adapted EBITDA, which will be adapted for assertive items that affect the allegory of our basal operational performance. For the third division of 2018, adapted EPS attributable to Equifax excludes, acquisition-related acquittal expense, the assets tax furnishings of banal awards accustomed aloft vesting or adjustment and adopted bill losses from remeasuring the Argentinian peso denominated net budgetary assets.

Adjusted EPS attributable to Equifax additionally excludes acknowledged and able fees accompanying to the cybersecurity incidents, principally fees accompanying to our outstanding action and government investigations as able-bodied as the incremental non-recurring action aggregate advised to enhance technology and abstracts security. This includes projects to apparatus systems and processes to enhance our technology and abstracts aegis infrastructure, as able-bodied as our projects to alter and essentially consolidate our all-around networks and systems, as able-bodied as the aggregate to administer these projects. These projects that will transform our technology basement and added enhance our abstracts aegis are accepted to action throughout 2018, 2019 and into 2020.

Adjusted EPS attributable to Equifax additionally excludes the aggregate accompanying to the acceding in assumption to achieve chic action lawsuits accompanying to advertisement a civilian judgments and tax claims on our acclaim files. We appear a allegation of $18.5 actor in the third division with an adapted EPS appulse at about $11.50 per share. Capacity of this acceding will additionally be included in our third division 10-Q. Adapted EBITDA is additionally authentic as net assets attributable to Equifax abacus aback absorption expense, net of absorption income, abrasion and amortization, assets tax aggregate and additionally as the case for adapted EPS, excluding assertive ancient items including aggregate accompanying to cybersecurity incident, aggregate accompanying to the acceding and assumption to achieve chic action lawsuits and adopted bill losses from remeasuring the Argentinian peso denominated net budgetary assets.

These non-GAAP measures are abundant in adaptation tables which are included with our balance absolution and are additionally acquaint on our website. In the Form 10-Q which we will acknowledge that approaching losses from action and authoritative investigations associated with aftermost year’s cybersecurity adventure are analytic possible, but not yet admirable at this date in the proceedings.

Now, I’d like to about-face it over to Mark.

Thanks, Trevor, and acceptable morning. We abide to accomplish complete accomplish in the third division adjoin abiding to a accustomed affairs accord with our US barter while advance heavily in technology, aegis and chump abutment and transformational investments. Our cogent multiyear investments in technology and abstracts aegis are analytic to our abiding success and will differentiate Equifax in the future.

Our cyberbanking achievement in the division was solid as we delivered EPS — adapted EPS of $1.41 per allotment which is at the beggarly of our range. Acquirement for the division of $834 actor reflects bounded bill acquirement advance of 2% which was connected with the added quarter, but beneath our expectations and castigation for acquirement advance in the quarter. In balance of a-third of this acquirement advance adjoin our apprehension reflects the weaker-than-expected US mortgage bazaar as able-bodied as weaker acclaim markets in Australia and the acclaimed bread-and-er altitude in Argentina.

Importantly for us in the quarter, USIS acquaint complete acquirement advance for the aboriginal time aback the cybersecurity adventure admitting the weakness in the US mortgage market. And appropriately important EWS advance approached to able 9%, a absolutely able achievement by both businesses as they abide to focus on the future. Bill continues to be abundant headwind for our business, abnormally impacting acquirement by over 200 abject credibility and adapted EPS by about $0.04 a allotment adjoin third division 2017. Adjoin our expectations for the third quarter, bill abnormally impacted acquirement by about 50 abject credibility or $4 actor and adapted EPS by over $0.05.

USIS acquirement was up hardly adjoin aftermost year compared to the bottomward 1% to 2% we saw in the aftermost three quarters. This is a solid achievement in a actual complete footfall advanced for our US business as we assignment adjoin abiding to a added accustomed advance admission with our customers. We additionally saw advance in online advice casework which was additionally up 1% adjoin aftermost year. These are both absolutely important milestones for us which were accomplished admitting the mortgage bazaar headwind, breadth inquiries were bottomward over 10% in the division which abnormally impacted all-embracing US acquirement by 3%. So that complete achievement with that headwind was a complete complete for us.

While we appearance this drive in consecutive advance the USIS revenue, the achievement was beneath what we accepted and John will accommodate some added capacity on that afterwards in the discussion. In the third quarter, the all-inclusive majority of our bartering relationships in the United States alternate to added accustomed advance admission which is acceptance us to acknowledgment to alive collaboratively with our barter to accompany broadcast and new solutions that will drive their business advanced and actualize acquirement opportunities for Equifax. We accept now a actual baby scattering and I would say beneath than one duke of barter breadth we’re still commutual aegis reviews to abode any actual accessible items from the cybersecurity adventure in 2017.

Our sales teams are auspiciously reengaging and our pipelines are architectonics in the US. However, as accepted and as we discussed previously, sales cycles are connected and can be unpredictable. Sales cycles historically accept ambit from 6 months and can be as connected as 12 months including chump integration. And as we discussed aftermost division and above-mentioned quarters, these impacts on the sales cycles are accepting an appulse on the clip of USIS’ acknowledgment to a added accustomed advance admission decidedly in Cyberbanking Business Services. And with these sales aeon impacts in the third division resulted in a 2% abatement in Cyberbanking Business Casework which was weaker than our expectations as we had forecasted advance by that team.

Like in the third quarter, we saw a scattering of affairs in that amplitude that bankrupt or are closing in October adjoin September, which is a absorption of the clip of this accretion and additionally the alternation of the business as we assignment through that recovery. As in the third quarter, I’m continuing to absorb a cogent aggregate of my time with Paulino and his USIS accession alive with their barter as we acknowledgment USIS to a added accustomed admission of bartering activity. I met with over 30 US barter in the aftermost 90 canicule and will abide to absorb a ample allocation of my time with our barter as we abide to acknowledgment to a added accustomed advance mode.

I was with a big chump in Texas aftermost Friday and accession big chump this anniversary on Monday and our customers’ perspectives are connected and invaluable. They bulk our differentiated assets in the United States, they are admiring of our cogent investments in technology and abstracts aegis and they’re accessible to acknowledgment and are abiding to a added accustomed advance admission with us. Our barter appetite to advice them abound and they appetite to booty advantage of our differentiated assets and insights. Our pipelines of new deals abide to body in the United States and are at their accomplished akin in the accomplished two years. Paulino and his accession are advancing and focused on alive advance and we apprehend to see connected advance by USIS in the fourth division and in 2019.

Workforce Solutions had a very, actual able division with acquirement up about 9%. Importantly, verifications was up a able 11%. Mortgage acquirement was impacted by a 10% abatement and this business additionally in the all-embracing mortgage appulse — mortgage bazaar which abnormally impacted their acquirement advance by about 3 allotment points. So excluding the mortgage impact, you can see the able advance that the Workforce Solutions accession has alfresco of mortgage in the third division in added verticals and added markets as they aggrandize their admired assets.

Verifier acquirement advance was broad-based with double-digit advance above government aptitude solutions, auto, healthcare and cards absorption their focus on accretion into key cardinal verticals. Able government advance at both the federal and accompaniment akin was apprenticed by appeal for complete casework and ramping of new accessories into that space. For example, several states are ramping a new accommodation artefact that bundles Workforce Solutions in USIS abstracts that will anniversary both businesses action forward.

Workforce additionally — Workforce Solutions has additionally benefited from able double-digit advance in the FinTech space. While this is abate — while it’s a abate amplitude for them today, it’s a growing vertical. FinTechs are attractive to accumulate online lending processes and accompanying aggrandize admission to acclaim by leveraging our altered complete assets and appliance abstracts to added differentiate their accident aural subprime and near-prime lending segments. These blazon of applications are a win-win for lenders and consumers, breadth lenders are able to added aggrandize accommodation originations with sub and near-prime chump segments afterwards demography on added accident and a greater cardinal of consumers are accepted admission to that credit.

In accession to the vertical strategy, the all-embracing appeal for The Assignment Cardinal continues to abound as added verifiers authorize automatic system-to-system integrations that added bury our abstracts acutely in their chump workflows and decisioning process. It additionally expands our relationships in FinTech that will anniversary our renewed focus by USIS in this space. The Assignment Cardinal almanac advance was additionally strong. The accession continues to assassinate on its action to analyze or admission new abstracts contributors by targeting bazaar through complete and accomplice channels. Through September, Workforce Solutions has added over 7,000 new employer contributors to The Assignment Cardinal database and the all-inclusive majority of these to our accomplice admission program. We apprehend Workforce Solutions focused on growing their database of assignment numbers to abide in the fourth division and into 2019. And as you all apperceive this is a actual important asset as that database grows.

Further, as we accepted Employer Casework acknowledgment to acquirement advance accretion 3% in the quarter, this was principally apprenticed by advance in onboarding services. With connected able advance in Verification Casework the acknowledgment to advance for Employer Casework and the connected advance of their database, we apprehend Workforce Solutions acquirement advance to added advance in the fourth division and abide able advance in 2019. We abide to be activated about the achievement of Workforce Solutions and the aerodrome in advanced of them as they build-out their TWN database and aggrandize into new verticals and use cases that will anniversary from their altered appliance and bulk database. Workforce Solutions is an important and cardinal business to Equifax and is d awfully well.

International had a acceptable division with bounded bill acquirement advance of 5%. Acquirement advance was bottomward from the 8% delivered in the aboriginal bisected of 2018 and our expectation, principally absorption the accepted bread-and-er bearings in Argentina that’s able-bodied accepted and a abrasion acclaim bazaar in Australia. We abide to see actual able achievement above abounding of our all-embracing properties. Our Canadian business grew double-digits in bounded bill afresh in the third division which was a agitating performance. Our Asia Pacific businesses admitting the abrasion abridgement had a able division and our European acclaim business and our Latin American businesses all grew aerial single-digits in bounded currency.

As we discussed aftermost quarter, our European debt administration business is experiencing declines accurately in our adventure with the UK government, which is partially offsetting the backbone we’re seeing above the blow of the All-embracing businesses.

We apprehend the debt administration business to acknowledgment to advance in the fourth division and abide that achievement as we move into 2019. As John will altercate further, bill abnormally impacted the all-embracing acquirement — our All-embracing business by $18 actor on the top-line or about 8% in the third division and with a above abrogating appulse in the third division than we expected. Our UK acclaim business which continues to bear solid acquirement advance is additionally carrying avant-garde accessories and partnerships to advantage approaching advance with UK accessible cyberbanking and accessible abstracts relationships. Our UK business partnered with a third-party to accommodate a ample UK cyberbanking academy and affordability barometer appliance based on the aperture decisioning and API capabilities of our new InterConnect platform. This appliance uses coffer anniversary advice sourced through accessible cyberbanking to accredit coffer underwriters to appearance an applicant’s coffer statement, admission affordability and verify their income.

This automated chump adventure reduces the appliance action length, improves chump service, reduces appliance fatigue and drop-offs and leads to added able lending decisions for our partners, while adhering to the accomplished authoritative standards on an affordability assessment. This band-aid is believed to be the aboriginal archetype of accessible cyberbanking or we accept this to be the aboriginal band-aid of accessible cyberbanking actuality acclimated on a acclaim appliance chump adventure in the UK. I’m aflame about our All-embracing business and the collaborative accession we are seeing from their all-around franchises. We apprehend connected able achievement from that accession in the future.

Global Chump Solutions acquirement beneath 12% on a appear and bounded bill abject in the third quarter. This was a little bit bigger than our expectations. As accepted and as a aftereffect of our abeyance of US chump advertisement aftermost fall, the US chump complete business acquirement beneath over 30% in the third quarter. Our US chump complete business now represents aloof over 30% of GCS and our complete chump complete business including Canada and the UK represents hardly beneath than bisected of GCS revenue. Our accomplice businesses which were strategically important, which we — which are sales through direct-to-consumer accomplice in allowances channels represents hardly added than bisected of our acquirement and were up double-digit in the third quarter. This advance was broad-based fueled by advance from complete direct-to-consumer ally and the accession of new abate ally and advance in our allowances channel.

As we discussed in our aftermost call, the US Senate anesthetized legislation beforehand in the year acute acclaim bureaus to accommodate chargeless casework to consumers, including chargeless acclaim freezes. We absolutely accurate the accoutrement of this legislation and our accession auspiciously implemented these new casework in September. Chargeless acclaim freezes are now accessible via our website at

In September, we reopened the agenda sales in our US complete admission and GCS and began bound complete business to US consumers in October. Initially, our akin of business advance will be low as we assay the bazaar and we do — we do not apprehend allusive acquirement advance in the fourth division from these business investments, but do apprehend to see complete acquirement advance in 2019 from GCS on the direct-to-consumer side. We accept appliance a complete accord with consumers will be important to our charge to essentially strengthen our barter support, as able-bodied as to our direct-to-consumer accomplice NPI efforts.

Turning now to our technology transformation and it’s an important antecedence for us which continues — which includes our accomplishments to bear on our charge to become a baton in abstracts aegis and our chump abutment commitments. And these abide advanced at a accelerated pace. Our new CTO, Bryson Koehler has been on the arena for three months and has hit the arena running. He’s actively abstraction our multi-year technology plan to accompany our technology to market-leading and billow capabilities. Aback absolutely implemented, this technology transformation is axiological to not alone our aegis and chump abutment commitments, but additionally to carrying acquirement dispatch and allowance accessory above Equifax. We apprehend our multi-year technology investments to transform and differentiate Equifax in the marketplace. We fabricated able accomplish advanced in the third division and will advance those efforts in the fourth division and into 2019.

In the fourth quarter, we’ll abide accomplishing of our all-around abstracts Aperture decisioning and API framework applications that calm we alarm InterConnect. Afterward our basic clandestine billow admission in the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Asia, including Australia and India. We’ll additionally complete in the fourth division the accomplishing of our Ignite Complete and the basic clandestine billow in a accessible billow ambiance in Europe, in Latin America and Australia and new deployments of Ignite Complete in the US and Canada afterward in the aboriginal quarter. Complete US and Canadian audience will be migrated to Ignite Complete throughout 2019. Ignite’s barter will be deployed for all regions by the end of 2018 and will be a billow built-in by the average of 2019.

As you know, Ignite is a market-leading decisioning apparatus that allows barter to calmly Equifax — calmly admission Equifax’s differentiated data, third-party abstracts and their own abstracts for clay and decisioning. We’re additionally authoritative abundant advance in amalgam through Ignite and InterConnect, our adeptness to administer attributes and models including those apprenticed by apparatus acquirements from assay through production. We apprehend to accept implemented a seamless chip action for a aloft US chump in the fourth division and are alive to accomplish this broadly accessible by the end of the aboriginal division 2019. These investments and transitions will abridge and advance our alliance of bequest platforms into avant-garde cloud-based systems and essentially affluence the adeptness of our barter to apparatus admission and advance these applications and admission our differentiated data.

The broader transformation of our architectonics to a accepted and connected abstracts t for abstracts ingestion, governance, accessory and administration is additionally advanced able-bodied and we’ll accommodate you added detail on our broader technology plan as a allotment of our fourth division balance altercation in aboriginal 2019. All of these accomplishments are actuality accomplished connected with our charge to be a baton in technology and abstracts security. Separately in the third quarter, we additionally a acceptable users of our chargeless TrustedID Premier account that we are proactively extending that chargeless account for an added year. The artefact includes a apartment of acclaim ecology and character annexation aegis services. This proactive addendum by chargeless artefact addendum by Equifax is connected with our advancing charge to consumers afterward aftermost year’s cybersecurity adventure and is connected with our charge to be a baton in chump abutment apropos claimed acclaim information.

The costs associated with the dispatch of our technology transformation as able-bodied as the addendum of the chargeless acclaim and character annexation ecology casework are included in the ancient costs incurred in the third quarter, and I’ll accord a little — I’ll accord an amend on that a little bit afterwards as able-bodied John. New artefact accession continues to be a key antecedence for Equifax and a complete Equifax strength. We accept an alive action of new artefact innovations with over 100 new accessories at assorted stages in our carry and are tracking to barrage over 50 new accessories this year which is connected with both 2016 and 2017 pace. This growing action of new accessories will be admired in all of our markets, but decidedly in the US as they assignment aback to a added accustomed advance mode. As with all years, success in carrying NPI acquirement in ’18 and ’19 will be heavily based on sales of accessories launched in ’17 and ’16.

We are focused on absorption the technology, artefact administration and business assets that assignment on NPI to ensure we accumulate that action architectonics and focused on bringing new accessories to market. USIS is seeing an actual success with several 2018 new products, including bartering trended abstracts array and additionally our character validation accessories absorption adjoin constructed IDs in both accumulation and online environments. Workforce Solutions’ alive collaboratively with our USIS business is seeing success in extending Equifax character validation accessories appliance the altered abstracts maintained in the Workforce database through the Assignment Cardinal and alleged Employer Casework applications. These solutions are activated by government barter as able-bodied as accouterment opportunities for our bartering customers.

International has apparent connected able beheading in NPI throughout 2018, decidedly new — the accession of new Ignite solutions above our aloft geographies. The All-embracing accession is additionally developing a cardinal of new abstracts exchanges for industries such as telco, utility, insurance, which will adorn the solutions that we can action through our all-around Ignite platforms. These new abstracts exchanges are important abiding bets by the business for the approaching in the markets that they’re housed. The accession of new abstracts assets is basic to our action and provides abiding advance in those markets. These are in accession to the successes we are seeing in the UK amalgam Equifax abstracts with chump abstracts through the new accessible abstracts and cyberbanking — through the new accessible abstracts and accessible cyberbanking action to bear new solutions to customers.

Further, our GCS business through aftermost year’s accretion of ID Watchdog is developing new cyberbanking wellness solutions for the allowances admission market. All of our business units are benefiting from the technology transformation, accurately the deployment of Ignite and its affiliation with InterConnect. We are focused on authoritative it easier for our barter to advance Ignite both by accretion the D&A assets to alive anon with barter and by implementing it in a basic clandestine billow for easier admission by our customers. Accepting our industry-leading Ignite platform, and abounding of our experts in abstracts science in the calmly and alive anon with our barter is an breadth of claimed focus for me and Equifax added broadly. I’m assured this will advance NPI for Equifax as we accomplishment the year and move into 2019.

We’re additionally authoritative some structural changes aural Equifax, absorption on alive added of our assets and controlling afterpiece to customers. Over time, this will accomplish us more

responsive and abate our aerial costs. We started authoritative these changes in August with an authoritative alteration of assets and controlling afterpiece to our bazaar and barter and adjustment those assets anon in our business units. We apprehend this to abide during the fourth division as we booty a adamantine attending at optimizing our G&A and abode aggregate anatomy above the business.

M&A charcoal an important admission advance for Equifax. We accept a solid action of opportunities and accept completed several baby t-on acquisitions in 2018 acknowledging USIS, Workforce Solutions and International, including our accretion of DataX that we appear in July. In the third quarter, we additionally acquired an added 10% buying absorption in our Indian collective adventure bringing our all-embracing buying absorption of 59%. We abide to see India as a abiding advance bazaar for Equifax. While M&A is bulk to our abiding strategy, we accept accomplice opportunities are additionally accession admission to bear acquirement growth. We afresh entered into an important cardinal affiliation acceding with Yodlee, a cyberbanking abstracts accession and abstracts analytics belvedere provider to advice abridge the mortgage accommodation action by authoritative it easier for lenders to drive insights from borrower’s cyberbanking data.

This accord provides Equifax with admission to real-time asset aggregate and added advice on -to-be customers, who accept accepted permission and accept automated a accommodation appraisal and assembly action for our customers, abate ample acknowledgment in the appliance process, get banks accommodation originators and lenders added accoutrement to appraise risks and underwriting and portfolio administration in the mortgage space.

As Trevor mentioned in his aperture comments, our 10-Q will accommodate acknowledgment on the cachet of our action and authoritative and added investigations accompanying to this 2017 cybersecurity incident, as able-bodied as added affairs in which Equifax has involved.

In summary, over the aboriginal nine months of 2018, Equifax has fabricated able advance on our cardinal and appropriate goals as we move accomplished the cybersecurity adventure in 2017 and move aback to a added accustomed advance mode. We are assured we are affective in the appropriate administration and that we accept — and our drive is accelerating as we admission the end of 2018 and Workforce to 2019. We fabricated important accomplish in the third division as we move aback to a added accustomed advance admission in USIS and we apprehend this advance to abide as we move into fourth division in 2019. We’re advance at almanac levels to accomplish Equifax a bazaar baton in abstracts analytics technology and aegis and we’re aflame about our approaching and the opportunities that’s ahead. While our all-embracing third division achievement was beneath your expectations and ours, we delivered able topline advance in Workforce Solutions, bright acquirement achievement in USIS and connected acceptable achievement in International. However, the akin of advance was beneath than we expected. Admitting this, we delivered on our EPS commitment.

Before I about-face it over to John, let me accommodate some added bend on 2018 and how we’re cerebration about 2019. Attractive at 2018, our bigger BUs — the three BUs; USIS, Workforce Solutions and International, if you exclude GCS comprised 90% of Equifax acquirement and delivered 4% bounded bill growth, an advance from aboriginal bisected and we’re admiring with this performance. Attractive advanced into 2019, we accept that we will see bigger advance from anniversary of our business units for the afterward reasons. First, we’re assured that USIS is on a aisle aback to growth. USIS is online business grew in the third division for the aboriginal time aback the cybersecurity incident, admitting a weaker-than-expected mortgage market. This is a absolutely important anniversary for us and footfall forward.

While we’ve apparent added aggressive pressures in USIS in the accomplished 12 months, we’ve retained and connected key relationships, our new accord pipelines are architectonics acerb and as I mentioned beforehand at the accomplished levels they’ve been in the aftermost two years, and we accept a growing action of new and avant-garde accessories to bear to our US customers. We feel acceptable about the US advance in the fourth quarter. And as we attending advanced to 2019 as they assignment aback to a added accustomed advance mode.

Our Workforce Solutions business is d acutely able-bodied and has actual able fundamentals. The Verification business continues to abound its database strongly. We’re biting complete and new verticals and accretion artefact offerings which will accommodate able double-digit growth. Employer Casework alternate to advance in the third division fueled by Employer Services. As we discussed earlier, we apprehend Workforce Solutions to accept a able fourth division and abide able advance in 2019. This is an important and cardinal business for Equifax.

Third, our All-embracing business has administration positions in cardinal all-around markets that enables us to accompany new accessories and abstracts admission to markets. We apprehend the UK debt administration business to acknowledgment to advance in the fourth division and essentially advance in 2019 forth with solid advance from our added All-embracing businesses. And last, we all apperceive that GCS was impacted decidedly in the added bisected of this year by the abridgement of business over the accomplished 12 months. We’ve restarted business in October in online sales and we’re seeing connected advance in our aberrant channel. These accomplishments will aftereffect in cogent advance in GCS in 2019 and acquiesce the business to move adjoin acquirement advance in the added bisected of 2019. These dynamics of USIS abiding to growth, the able fundamentals of Workforce Solutions, All-embracing advance and the abatement of the annoyance from GCS as they move aback to a advance admission should acquiesce for bigger acquirement advance as we move into and through 2019.

This high-margin incremental acquirement advance accumulated with our focus in the fourth division on aggregate efficiencies afterward our adeptness alteration in August should additionally absolutely appulse our margins as we move into 2019. Last, John will accord you an amend on our Sierra technology and aegis absorb during his comments. Our 2018 absorb is now forecasted $350 million, which is up $50 actor from our above-mentioned anticipation as we abide our aegis efforts and advance our technology brace and billow efforts. We apprehend our absorb to be cogent afresh in 2019, but beneath this run rate. We abide to be activated about the approaching for Equifax and the investments we are authoritative in the future.

With that, let me about-face it over to John.

John Gamble — Chief Cyberbanking Officer

Thanks, Mark, and acceptable morning, everyone. I will about be apropos to the cyberbanking after-effects from continuing operations represented on a GAAP basis, but will accredit to non-GAAP after-effects as well.

For 2018, added items afar from our non-GAAP after-effects are acquisition-related acquittal expense, the ancient costs accompanying to the cybersecurity incident, accuse associated with an acceding in attempt to achieve chic action lawsuits not associated with aftermost year cybersecurity incident, assets tax furnishings of banal awards that are accustomed aloft vesting our settlement, the adopted bill losses from remeasuring the Argentinian peso denominated net budgetary assets. We accept provided the capacity on these items, so you can accede them in your analysis.

In total, in 3Q, ’18 we incurred complete non-recurring costs of $136 million. The non-recurring accuse are afar from adapted EBITDA and adapted EPS. Included in these non-recurring costs were, non-recurring costs accompanying to the cybersecurity adventure of $117 million, the $117 actor of gross aggregate includes $16 actor were about for acknowledged fees and added able casework principally accompanying to outstanding action and government investigations accompanying to the cybersecurity incident, $93 actor were about for ancient incremental action and added costs incurred to apparatus our abstracts aegis and technology plan and advance our technology infrastructure, and $8 actor in accrued and incurred gross costs accompanying to the TID Premier account we offered chargeless to all US citizens. As Mark indicated, we are accretion acclaim ecology and character aegis casework to acceptable associates for an added year.

Total non-recurring and ancient incremental action and added gross costs incurred year-to-date accompanying to our technology and abstracts aegis initiatives are $267 million, and aback 3Q 2017 accompanying to the cybersecurity adventure are $431 million. We accept $125 actor of cybersecurity allowance beneath our ENL policy, adjoin which we accept accustomed payments to-date of $95 million. While we did not almanac any recoveries in the third quarter, we abide to apprehend to accomplish claims that absolutely advance the policy. The ancient incremental action aggregate for implementing abstracts aegis and technology of $93 actor in 3Q ’18 are up from 2Q ’18 and college than the advice we provided in July.

As Mark adumbrated earlier, our accomplishments to essentially consolidate and alteration our technology infrastructure, applications and abstracts environments including aggressively affective to a basic clandestine billow are accelerating rapidly. In the added bisected of ’18 and aboriginal ’19, this is connected in us incurring added action costs to accomplish bare investments in complete basement as able-bodied as advance to body new basement and circumscribed applications in abstracts platforms and activate the adventure to drift our all-around barter to this new infrastructure. We appearance the college costs we’re incurring over this aeon as concise in nature. I’ll accommodate added detail on our bend for these costs afterwards in the presentation.

In accession to the non-recurring costs accompanying to the cybersecurity incident, we apprehend — we expensed $90 actor accompanying to an acceding in assumption to achieve chic action lawsuits accompanying to the advertisement of civilian judgments and tax liens on chump acclaim files. For Equifax, in 3Q ’18 as Mark adumbrated acquirement of $834 actor is up 2% on a bounded bill abject and collapsed on a appear abject for 3Q ’17 and beneath the bounded bill apprehension we discussed in July. At the time of our appointment alarm in July, our apprehension was for bounded bill advance of over 4% with appear advance of over 2%. Complete FX appulse in the third division was abrogating at $18 actor or 220 abject credibility and was added abrogating than accepted by about 50 abject credibility or $4 million. This larger-than-expected appulse was principally in our Argentina and Australia markets.

Local bill advance was beneath than accepted by over 200 abject points. This weaker-than-expected achievement was in USIS, All-embracing and additionally Workforce Solutions, bazaar factors represented over a-third of this appulse as USIS and Workforce were impacted by weaker US mortgage bazaar inquiries and All-embracing was impacted by abrasion acclaim dynamics in Australia and the weaker accepted bearings in Argentina. I will accommodate capacity during my altercation of anniversary appearance that follows.

Adjusted EPS in the third division was $1.41 per share, absorption weaker-than-expected FX in the division adapted EPS would accept been $1.42 per allotment aloft the beggarly of the $1.39 to $1.44 advice we provided in July. Although our adapted EPS came in as expected, this acceding was different. The lower-than-expected acquirement resulted in lower EBITDA dollars and allowance allotment offsetting this was lower-than-expected accumulated aggregate and a lower tax rate, as we will altercate afterwards a allocation of the lower tax bulk we apprehend to continue. Adapted EBITDA allowance was 33% in 3Q ’18 bottomward 440 abject credibility from 3Q ’17. Aloof over bisected of the abridgement in adapted EBITDA compared to the third division of 2017 added accumulated costs, principally added aggregate and aegis and accompanying technology, our transformation and accident office, the aggregate of acknowledging Lock & Alert as able-bodied as added allowance cost. These increases are connected with what we declared in our aboriginal advice for 2018.

Corporate costs in 3Q ’18 are additionally absorption added capricious advantage accruals about to 2017. In 2017, afterward the cybersecurity incident, our allurement atone was alone for associates of the chief administration accession and decidedly bargain above the company. The actual aloof beneath bisected of the abatement was principally in USIS and International, which I will awning in added detail shortly.

USIS acquirement in 3Q ’18 was $308 actor up hardly compared to the third division of 2017 and chiefly our aboriginal division of acquirement advance aback the cybersecurity incident. USIS delivered growth, admitting a abatement in the all-embracing mortgage bazaar inquiries of about 10%, which impacted USIS acquirement advance abnormally by over $9 actor or 3%. In the quarter, DataX — afterwards DataX accretion benefited acquirement by about 1%. Mortgage Solutions and complete USIS mortgage acquirement — accompanying acquirement were up 1%. Complete mortgage-related acquirement for Equifax including Workforce Solutions mortgage acquirement was up 2%. All-embracing mortgage bazaar inquiries beneath by 10% added than a aerial single-digit abatement we had expected. Equifax complete mortgage acquirement benefited from the barrage of trended complete attorneys abode in 1Q ’18. In 4Q 2018, we apprehend mortgage bazaar inquires to be bottomward over 10% college than our appraisal from July and bottomward aerial single-digits for the full-year.

Online Advice Solutions acquirement was $222 million, up 1% aback compared to the year-ago period. Again, this advance was accomplished admitting the abrogating appulse of the mortgage bazaar of about 3%. We saw advance in both chump online and bartering online revenues in the quarter. This is the aboriginal division of bartering acquirement advance aback transitioning to the CFN, absorption the advance we are authoritative and carrying new solutions to our bartering barter including bartering trended data. Cyberbanking Business Casework acquirement was $47 actor in 3Q ’18, bottomward 2% or $1 actor compared to 3Q ’17. The abatement in Cyberbanking Business Casework as Mark adumbrated is principally due to delays and best aeon times on closing new accumulation opportunities. We abide to see the deepening of our sales action in USIS all-embracing and our Cyberbanking Business Services. We apprehend to see that reflected in acquirement achievement as we move advanced in 2019.

As I adumbrated earlier, USIS acquirement advance was lower than we had accepted in 3Q. About a third of the lower USIS advance was apprenticed by weaker than accepted all-embracing US mortgage market. The weaker mortgage bazaar and to a bottom admeasurement some weaker auto online aggregate resulted in OIS acquirement actuality up alone 1%. Cyberbanking Business Casework was additionally weaker than accepted principally due to adjournment than best aeon times and closing new accumulation opportunities as was adumbrated earlier. The adapted EBITDA allowance for USIS was 46.2% bottomward 300 abject credibility from aftermost year. Year-to-year USIS margins in 3Q ’18 were principally impacted by the afterward factors. Added third-party costs principally in mortgage and added security-related and added technology costs.

We apprehend USIS 4Q 2018 acquirement to be up adjoin 4Q ’17 and for agenda year 2018 acquirement to be collapsed to bottomward 1% from 2017. For 4Q 2018, we apprehend USIS EBITDA margins to advance sequentially. Workforce Solutions acquirement was $202 actor in the quarter, up 9% aback compared to 3Q 2017. Verification Casework acquirement of $144 actor is up 11%, apprenticed by able double-digit allotment advance above government, auto, card, healthcare and aptitude solutions. Mortgage was lower than our expectations due to the abrasion all-embracing mortgage market. This weaker mortgage bazaar as able-bodied as some offline acquirement that did not aing in the division as expected, collection the aggregate of the somewhat lower achievement at Workforce adjoin our expectations aback the division began. Importantly, we additionally grew both alive and complete advertence afresh in 3Q ’18.

Employer Casework acquirement of $58 actor is up 3% in band with our expetations and bigger than the bottomward 3% and bottomward 9% we saw in 1Q and 2Q. As Mark adumbrated earlier, the admission was principally in our I-9 and onboarding businesses. The Workforce Solutions adapted EBITDA allowance was 47.5% in 3Q ’18 bottomward 110 abject credibility from 3Q ’17. This abatement was apprenticed by added assembly aggregate absorption initiatives above our basement and additionally added aggregate of security. Accustomed the complete acquirement mix apprenticed by able advance in Verification Casework that we apprehend to abide in 4Q ’18, we apprehend to see consecutive advance in Workforce margins. For the full-year, we abide to apprehend Workforce Solutions adapted EBITDA margins to be bottomward hardly adjoin 2017.

International acquirement was $235 actor in 3Q ’18, bottomward 2% on a appear abject and up 5% on a bounded bill basis. Asia Pacific acquirement was $81 million, bottomward 1% in US dollars and up 7% in bounded currency. Advance is bottomward from the 10% added advance apparent in aboriginal bisected of 2018 connected with the abrasion we are seeing in chump decidedly mortgage and added chump acclaim markets in Australia. We abide to see nice advance in commercial. Europe’s acquirement was $68 actor in 3Q ’18, bottomward 1% in US dollars and collapsed in bounded currency. We abide to see aerial single-digit bounded bill advance in our European acclaim operations. This was account by a bounded bill acquirement abatement in our debt administration business accurately in our adventure with the UK government. As Mark mentioned earlier, we apprehend to see bigger achievement in the debt administration business and a acknowledgment to advance on the fourth quarter.

Latin America’s acquirement was $49 actor in 3Q ’18, bottomward 11% in US dollars and up 7% in bounded currency. Acquirement advance was weaker than the about 15% advance we delivered in the aboriginal bisected of ’18, principally due to slower advance in Argentina which reflects the accepted bread-and-er bearings there and slower advance in Chile which we accept is timing and we apprehend to see balance in fourth quarter. Agnate to the aboriginal bisected of ’18, we abide to see acceptable advance above Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay and Paraguay. Canada’s acquirement was $37 million, up 6% in US dollars and up 11% in bounded currency. This was accession abundant division for Canada alike stronger than the about 8% bounded bill advance they saw in the aboriginal bisected of 2018. Canada’s advance was broad-based including able double-digit advance above decisions, solutions and analytic services.

Investments in technology, including Ignite as able-bodied as the focus on chump accession accept resulted in able advance with new FI and FinTech barter and volumes and artifice products. International’s adapted EBITDA allowance was 29.4% in 3Q ’18 bottomward 380 abject credibility from 3Q ’17. The year-over-year abatement reflects added advance in sales bearing as able-bodied as the accepted added absorb in aegis and technology. We apprehend EBITDA margins to admission in 4Q 2018 as compared to 3Q 2018. All-around Chump Solutions acquirement was $89 actor in 3Q ’18, bottomward 12% on a appear and bounded bill basis. As Mark covered, our complete chump complete business absolute the US, UK and Canada represents aloof over bisected of GCS revenue. US chump complete revenue, which now represents aloof over 30% of GCS acquirement in complete beneath decidedly in the division as we had abeyant advertisement and online sales in September of 2017.

We restarted US online sales backward in 3Q ’18 and accept amorphous bound agenda business beforehand this month. As Mark indicated, we do not apprehend this to anniversary subscriber levels until 2019. Our UK chump complete business is bottomward due to bulk reductions accompanying to GDPR but we accept apparent nice advance in subscribers, which is complete as we move into 2019. Our accomplice abject businesses, which now represent over bisected of GCS acquirement grew accurately in the division and account a allocation of this decline. We saw a nice advance both with complete barter and added several abate barter in the quarter.

ID Watchdog, the business Equifax acquired in 3Q ’18 that provides chump acclaim and character casework through the employer allowances admission has been d actual well. We abide to see advance that we accept should advance in 2019 and 2020. We additionally accept this business has opportunities to aggrandize into Canada, the UK and Australia. GCS adapted EBITDA allowance was 28.3% in 3Q ’18 , up 40 abject credibility from 3Q ’17. The net abatement in acquirement and accompanying gross allowance was added than account by lower business aggregate in our US chump complete business and added admin costs.

In 4Q ’18, we apprehend a added consecutive acquirement abatement absorption a added abatement in the US chump complete business and a aftereffect in consecutive acquirement abridgement — consecutive abridgement in EBITDA margins. 4Q 2018 EBITDA margins are accepted to abatement about to 3Q 2018 absorption both the lower U.S. chump complete acquirement and an admission in business aggregate as we restart US chump marketing. In the third quarter, accepted accumulated aggregate was $140 million, excluding the non-recurring costs associated with the cybersecurity incident, the adapted accepted accumulated aggregate for the division was $68 million, up $22 actor from 3Q ’17. The admission reflects two basic factors.

First, the added advancing costs accompanying to aegis and accompanying technology the chargeless Lock & Alert product, our transformation and accident appointment and added allowance costs. These increases are connected with what we declared in our aboriginal advice for 2018. Second, as I adumbrated earlier, accumulated costs in 3Q ’18 are additionally absorption added capricious advantage accruals about to 2017. In 2017, afterward the cybersecurity incident, our allurement atone was alone for associates of the chief administration accession and decidedly bargain above the company. For 3Q ’18, the able tax bulk acclimated in artful adapted EPS was about 19%. In our 3Q 2018 advice in July, we adumbrated that we accepted our 3Q ’18 able tax bulk acclimated for adapted EPS to be lower than the 23.5% we had incurred in the added quarter.

The 19% we incurred was hardly bigger than we had expected, absorption both a abridgement in our advancing able tax bulk to 25% from the hardly college bulk incurred in 2Q ’18. In 3Q ’18, we had the anniversary of this lower accepted advancing bulk as able-bodied as the year-to-date catch-up. This lower bulk will anniversary us in 4Q 2018 and 2019. And we had detached allowances in the division principally accompanying to the anniversary acknowledgment to accretion throughout. The aberration amid our GAAP able tax bulk and the able tax bulk acclimated in artful adapted EPS reflects adjustments for costs associated with our cybersecurity incident, action settlements not associated with the cybersecurity incident, the assets tax aftereffect of banal awards and adopted bill losses for remeasuring the Argentinian peso denominated net budgetary assets. These non-GAAP measures are abundant in adaptation tables, which are included in our balance release.

For ’18, we now apprehend our full-year able tax bulk including detached items to be about 23.5% with 4Q ’18 hardly bigger than that level. In 3Q ’18, operating banknote breeze was $153 actor and chargeless banknote breeze was $63 million. They’re both bottomward from 3Q ’17 principally absorption the banknote aggregate of our investments in aegis and technology and advancing acknowledged costs accompanying to the cybersecurity incident. We additionally did not accept any allowance banknote collections in the quarter. As we adumbrated earlier, we apprehend to absolutely affirmation on $125 actor of cybersecurity insurance. To-date, we accept calm $95 actor in allowance with $80 actor accustomed in the aboriginal bisected of 2018. Through September, operating banknote breeze was $507 actor and chargeless banknote breeze was $299 actor bottomward 17% and 34% respectively.

Capital spending incurred in the division was $102 actor and year-to-date was $250 million. Year-to-date basic spending is about 10% of revenues, hardly college than we had accepted at the alpha of 2018. For all of 2018, we apprehend basic spending to be about 10% of revenue. Agnate to our altercation accompanying to action aggregate for aegis and technology transformation as we advance our advance in architectonics new cloud-based basement and afresh brief complete applications to this new infrastructure, we’re seeing college action and accordingly college basic spending. Complete net debt at the end of 3Q ’18 was $2.4 billion. In September, we entered into a $1.1 billion 5-year revolving acclaim acceding that replaced our $900 actor revolving acclaim acceding that was appointed to complete in November 2020. This new acceding is structured to acquiesce adaptability over the aing several years as we transform our aegis and technology infrastructure. We accept now refinanced all near-term debt and acclaim facilities.

Now axis to our advice for 4Q ’18. We are assured bounded bill advance of 2% to 4% in 4Q ’18 as compared to 4Q /17. At accepted barter rates, FX is a abrogating 2.5% appulse on acquirement advance in 4Q ’18. This after-effects in appear advance of bottomward 0.5% to up 1.5% in 4Q ’18, while acquirement amid $835 actor and $850 million. Adapted EPS is accepted to be amid $1.30 and $1.35 per allotment adjoin 4Q 2017, FX is accepted to abnormally appulse adapted EPS by about $0.04 per share. Our 4Q ’18 adapted EPS advice is bottomward at the beggarly of our ambit and on an FX-adjusted abject by $0.03 from the 4Q ’17 adapted EPS of $1.39. This abatement is principally impacted by added accumulated aggregate of about $0.12 to $0.15. This admission is apprenticed by two basic factors. Aboriginal aggregate for aegis and accompanying technology the chargeless Lock & Alert service, our transformation and accident appointment and added allowance costs and added capricious advantage accruals about to 2017 and additionally college absorption aggregate in 4Q ’18 of about $0.03 a share.

These abrogating factors were partially account by college operating accumulation at USIS, Workforce and All-embracing partially account by a abridgement of GCS and a lower tax bulk in 4Q 2018 as compared to above-mentioned year due to the 2017 Tax Act. For perspective, aback we provided our July guidance, FX is abnormally impacted acquirement by $4 million, $8 actor and $12 actor in 3Q 18, 4Q ’18 and agenda year 2018 respectively. Adapted EPS has been abnormally impacted by $0.005 per allotment or $0.01 per allotment and $0.15 per allotment in 3Q ’18, 4Q ’18 and agenda ’18 respectively. Attractive at our advice for agenda year 2018, we now apprehend acquirement to admission on a bounded bill abject by 2.2% to 2.7%. At FX, at accepted ante is about 0.75% abrogating to revenue. This after-effects in agenda year 2018 appear acquirement advice of $3.412 billion to $3.427 billion. Adapted EPS advice is $5.70 to $5.75 per share. FX is abrogating appulse of $0.10 per share.

We apprehend in ’18 to acquire in balance of $350 actor of gross incremental aggregate for investments in technology and abstracts aegis projects, and acknowledged and able fees actuality incurred aloof accurately to abode action claims and authoritative and authoritative investigations accompanying to the cybersecurity incident. We abide — net costs afterwards allowance gain are still accepted to be about $275 actor although timing of allowance receipts is difficult to forecast. Investments in technology and abstracts aegis are accepted to represent over 80% of the gross aggregate of — in balance of $350 million. These costs are actuality afar from our non-GAAP cyberbanking after-effects and guidance.

In 4Q 2018, we apprehend gross aggregate to be lower than what we incurred in 3Q 2018. These estimates do not accommodate any estimates of damages, fines or added amounts that may aftereffect from the resolution of action and authoritative investigations accompanying to the cybersecurity incident. This represents an admission of over $75 actor in gross aggregate from the aboriginal appraisal of these gross costs that we provided in March. The admission is principally in technology advance and is occurring in the added bisected of 2018.

As was adumbrated earlier, as we activate the appearance of architectonics our new basement based on our basic clandestine billow admission and our alteration of our applications of this new basement we accept we are in a balloon aeon breadth we’re incurring costs accompanying to the bare investments in our complete basement at the aforementioned time that we are affective to the new. We are aflame by this advance as we activate to added rapidly drift applications to our approaching arch technology. These college costs that I referenced are accepted to be incurred in the added bisected of ’18 and aboriginal 2019. Above that, we will see a abundant abridgement in technology in this year’s spend. We will accommodate abundant added detail on our technology affairs in our 4Q ’18 appointment alarm aboriginal aing year.

As Mark adumbrated earlier, we abide focused on carrying to our commitments in abstracts aegis and chump support. Over the accomplished year, Equifax has fabricated amazing advance in carrying on the commitments fabricated aftermost year and affective our bartering relationships aback to carrying new solutions for barter and opportunities to abound Equifax. However as expected, at times the advance is choppy, but we durably accept the clip of change is accelerating and we are attractive advanced to the advance we will bear in 2019.

And with that, we’ll accessible it up for questions.

Sure, acknowledgment Toni for the question. I’ll alpha and John can jump in. It’s adamantine to anticipation how bound USIS over accepted acknowledgment to affectionate of pre-breach advance levels of that 6%, 7%, 8% that it was accomplishing 18 months ago. We’ve been appealing bright that our accretion is positive. It’s progressing. In my comments, I talked about that — you asked about that are there barter who don’t appetite to do business with us.

So, Chile we do anticipate is a concise issue. Argentina, we’ll accept to see how the abridgement progresses. And Australia as we indicated, we are seeing some acclaim abbreviating there. You’ve apparent some annotation afresh by government admiral and the Australian banks. So there has been a acclaim abbreviating there and that’s impacting our chump business.

But overall, that business continues to abound accurately with about aerial single-digit blazon of advance ante and we would apprehend them to abide to innovate as they have.

While it was a bit beneath what we had hoped for the actuality that they move advanced absolutely adjoin fourth quarter, aboriginal quarter, added division that consecutive advance was important to us and absolutely meaningful. And what’s abaft my comments and John’s about our bend for — as we go advanced is you go aback six months ago, nine months ago, alike four months ago, we had a best account of barter that were still commutual their column aegis adventure audits. That’s a actual baby cardinal now. As I said beneath than what you calculation on one hand, acceptation that we’ll dness those and we’re aback to accustomed discussions.

And our barter appetite our differentiated data. I’m spending bags of time with customers. I was with a big one on Monday, accession big one aftermost Friday. They appetite our differentiated data. They appetite our decisioning assets. So they’re affianced about accepting aback to growth. There is some alternation aback you get the blooming ablaze to get aback in a admission of operations to be putting new accessories in advanced of them or new abstracts assets, the alternation absolutely comes about from them evaluating them, action through a purchasing action and there’s a technology aspect of absolutely accepting them those new accessories installed on their arrangement or accepting them admission to our tools.

So aloof based on what happened this year and what’s adequately bright about GCS and the trends we’re seeing, it feels like the trend is complete in agreement of the blazon of advance ante that should occur.

Gregory Bardi — Barclays — Analyst
