Equifax, a global data, analytics, and technology company has announced entering into a definitive agreement to acquire Teletrack, a U.S. leader in alternative credit data, from CoreLogic.
The combination of Teletrack with the Equifax DataX business will create a U.S. specialty consumer reporting agency, with data on more than 80 mn thin-file, unbanked, underbanked and credit rebuilding consumers. This powerful source of information will enable lenders and service providers to access more alternative data sources in credit decisioning that can help open new consumer financial opportunities.
“Our strong financial performance, balance sheet, and cloud investments allow Equifax to reinvest our cash flow in this accretive and strategic acquisition of Teletrack that will expand the breadth of differentiated data assets that only Equifax can provide. The acquisition of Teletrack is yet another significant investment in our United States Information Solutions (USIS) business that will provide new value to our customers and further establish Equifax as a leading provider of alternative data for use in credit decisioning,” said Mark W. Begor, CEO of Equifax.
