Sep 11, 2017

NEW YORK, Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Equifax Inc. ("Equifax" or the "Company") (NYSE: EFX), including whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On September 7, 2017, the Company disclosed that it had been hacked and the sensitive personal information of 143 million Americans had been stolen.  The stolen information includes driver's license numbers, social security numbers, and credit card numbers.  According to media reports, certain of the Company's insiders executed significant trades in Equifax stock after they knew of the hack but before it had been disclosed to the public.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with potential conflicts of interest and inaccurate public disclosures.
