Equifax confirms $75M increase in all-cash bid to acquire Veda Group Equifax confirmed that it has increased its all-cash non-binding proposal to acquire all the outstanding shares of common stock of Veda Group Limited to AUD$2.825 per share, increasing its offer by $75M, resulting in an implied market capitalization of approximately $1.7B. The Veda board has agreed to unanimously recommend this proposal assuming it proceeds to a binding offer. Equifax is pleased that the Veda Board has determined to move forward to allow Equifax to engage in due diligence and negotiate a mutually acceptable definitive agreement. There is no certainty that any transaction will ultimately be agreed to or as to the terms on which such a transaction, if any, might occur, and any transaction would be subject to a number of conditions, including regulatory approval and Equifax board approval. Equifax does not intend to make any additional comments on this matter unless and until it believes it is appropriate to do so or a definitive agreement has been reached.
