After the Indemnifying Party shall have been notified of the amount for which the Indemnified Party seeks indemnification, the Indemnifying Party shall, within 30 days after receipt of such notice, pay the Indemnified Party such amount in cash or other immediately available funds (or reach agreement with the Indemnified Party as to a mutually agreeable alternative payment schedule) unless the Indemnifying Party objects to the claim for indemnification or the amount thereof. If the Indemnifying Party does not give the Indemnified Party written notice objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds therefor within the -14-

same 30 day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged its liability for such claim and the Indemnified Party may exercise any and all of its rights under applicable law to collect such amount.

The failure of the Indemnified Party to give notice as provided in this Section 5.02 shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure to give notice. Within 30 days after receipt of such notice, the Indemnifying Party shall by giving written notice thereof to the Indemnified Party, (a) acknowledge, as between the parties hereto, liability for, and at its option elect to assume the defense of such Third Party Claim at its sole cost and expense or (b) object to the claim of indemnification set forth in the notice delivered by the Indemnified Party pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 5.02 setting forth the grounds therefor; provided that if the Indemnifying Party does not within the same 30 day period give the Indemnified Party written notice acknowledging liability or objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds therefor, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged, as between the parties hereto, its liability to the Indemnified Party for such Third Party Claim. Any contest of a Third Party Claim as to which the Indemnifying Party has elected to assume the defense shall be conducted by attorneys employed by the Indemnifying Party and reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in such proceedings and to be represented by attorneys of its own choosing at the Indemnified Party's sole cost and expense. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle or compromise the claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnifying Party may not agree to any such settlement pursuant to which any remedy or relief, other than monetary damages for which the Indemnifying Party shall be responsible hereunder, shall be applied to or against the Indemnified Party, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. If the Indemnifying Party does not assume the defense of a Third Party Claim for which it has acknowledged liability for indemnification under Article IV, the Indemnified Party may require the Indemnifying Party to reimburse it on a current basis for its reasonable expenses of investigation, reasonable attorney's fees and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in defending against such Third Party Claim, and the Indemnifying Party shall be bound by the result obtained with respect thereto by the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement effected without its consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Indemnifying Party shall pay to the Indemnified Party in cash the amount for which the Indemnified Party is entitled to be indemnified (if any) within 15 days after the final resolution of such Third Party Claim (whether by the final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or otherwise), or, in the case of any Third Party Claim as to which the Indemnifying Party has not acknowledged liability, within 15 days after such Indemnifying Party's objection has been resolved by settlement, compromise or the final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. -15-

Disputes. -------- (a) Except as otherwise provided in any Ancillary Agreement, all disputes, controversies or claims between members of the Equifax Group and the PSI Group, which are parties to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement or the performance by the parties of its or their terms, whether based on contract, tort, statute or otherwise, including, but not limited to, disputes in connection with claims by third parties (collectively, "Disputes"), shall be resolved only in accordance with the provisions of this Section 15.10; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall preclude any party to a Dispute from seeking or obtaining (i) injunctive relief to prevent an actual or threatened breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, or (ii) equitable or other judicial relief to enforce the provisions of this Section 15.10 hereof or to preserve the status quo pending resolution of Disputes hereunder. -22-

(b) Any party or parties to a Dispute of either Group may give the parties to the Dispute of the other Group written notice of the Dispute initiating the procedures hereunder. Within 10 days after delivery of the notice of a Dispute, the receiving parties shall submit to the other a written response. The notice and the response shall include a statement of each party's respective position and a summary of arguments supporting that position and the name and title of the executive who will represent the claimants and of any other person who will accompany such executive in resolving the Dispute. Within twenty (20) days after delivery of the first notice, the executives of both Groups shall meet at a mutually acceptable time and place, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary, and shall negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the Dispute. All reasonable requests for information made by one party to the another will be honored. (c) If the Dispute has not been resolved by negotiation within sixty (60) days of the notice of Dispute, the Dispute may then be submitted for resolution by binding arbitration by a panel of three arbitrators conducted in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (the "Rules"), as modified by this Section 15.10. Arbitration shall be initiated by notice from the parties to a Dispute of either Group ("claimants") given to the parties to the Dispute of the other Group ("respondents"). The claimants acting jointly, on the one hand, and the respondents acting jointly, on the other hand, shall each appoint one arbitrator within 14 days after the claimants give an arbitration notice. The two arbitrators so appointed shall designate the third arbitrator by mutual agreement within 30 days after the arbitration notice is given. If the two arbitrators so appointed fail to designate the third arbitrator within such period, then any party may request the International Chamber of Commerce to appoint the third arbitrator within 14 days after such request. The third arbitrator shall be a lawyer licensed to practice in the State of Georgia who shall not be related to, employed by, affiliated with or have had a substantial or ongoing business relationship with any member of either Group. (d) The arbitration shall be conducted in Atlanta, Georgia (or at any other place agreed upon by the parties and the arbitrators). The parties will facilitate the arbitration by: (i) making available to one another and to the arbitrators for examination, inspection and extraction all documents, books, records and personnel under their control if determined by the arbitrators to be relevant to the dispute; (ii) conducting arbitration hearings to the greatest extent possible on successive days; and (iii) observing strictly the time periods established by this Section 15.10, the Rules or by the Arbitrators for submission of evidence or briefs. All issues in connection with the Dispute, including procedural issues, shall be decided by the concurrence of at least two arbitrators, and all decisions by the arbitrators shall be accompanied by a written opinion setting forth the findings of fact and conclusions of law relied upon in reaching the decision. The panel of arbitrators shall decide the issues submitted to it in accordance with the language and commercial purposes of this Agreement or the relevant Ancillary Agreement (as applicable); provided that all questions of law shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. The arbitrators' decision shall be final and binding as to all matters at issue in the Dispute; provided, however, if necessary such decision may be enforced by either party in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or the subject matter of the Dispute. Unless the arbitrators shall assess the costs and expenses of the arbitration proceeding and of the parties differently, each party shall pay its costs and expenses -23-

incurred in connection with the arbitration proceeding, and the costs and expenses of the arbitrators shall be shared equally by the parties. [signatures appear on following page] -24-

Shares that are reacquired by the Corporation shall be classified as treasury shares unless the terms of such shares provide to the contrary or unless retired and canceled in the discretion of the Board of Directors. Any reacquired shares that are retired and canceled shall constitute authorized but unissued shares unless the terms of such shares provide to the contrary. Any treasury shares may be resold or otherwise reissued in the discretion of the Board of Directors, subject to the provisions of these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation. The voting powers, preferences, designations, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions of or on each class and series of the shares of the Corporation shall be as follows: COMMON STOCK Subject to all of the rights of the Preferred Stock as expressly provided herein, by law or by the Board of Directors pursuant to this Article II, the Common Stock of the Corporation shall possess all such rights and privileges as are afforded to capital stock by applicable law in the absence of any express grant of rights or privileges provided for herein, including, but not limited to, the following rights and privileges: (a) Dividends may be declared and paid or set apart for payment upon the Common Stock out of any assets or funds of the Corporation legally available for the payment of dividends; (b) The holders of Common Stock shall have the right to vote for the election of directors and on all other matters requiring shareholder action, each share being entitled to one vote; and (c) Upon the voluntary or involuntary dissolution of the Corporation, the net assets of the Corporation available for distribution shall be distributed pro rata to the holders of the Common Stock in accordance with the number of shares of Common Stock held by them. PREFERRED STOCK

The Preferred Stock may be issued from time to time by the Board of Directors as shares of one or more series. The number of shares of each series of Preferred Stock, and the voting powers, designations, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions of or on such shares shall be as fixed and determined by the Board of Directors prior to the issuance of any such shares, in the manner provided by law. The authority of the Board of Directors with respect to each series of the Preferred Stock shall include, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the establishment of any or all of the voting powers, preferences, designations, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions described in Section 14-2-601(d) of the Georgia Business Corporation Code and any others determined by the Board of Directors, any of which may be different from or the same as those of any other class or series of the Corporation's shares. The Board of Directors is expressly authorized at any time to adopt resolutions providing for the issuance of, or providing for a change in the number of, shares of any particular series of Preferred Stock and at any time and from time to time to file articles of amendment which are effective without shareholder action to increase or decrease the number of shares included in any series of Preferred Stock (but not to decrease the number of shares in any series below the number of shares then issued), to eliminate the series where no shares are issued, or to set or change in any one or more respects the voting powers, preferences, designations, rights, qualifications, limitations or restrictions relating to the shares of the series, except as otherwise provided by law or in the articles of amendment establishing any such series. ARTICLE III Except as otherwise provided in these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or pursuant to the terms of any authorized series of Preferred Stock or by action of the Board of Directors pursuant to the Georgia Business Corporation Code, the vote required for shareholder action on all matters shall be the minimum vote required by the Georgia Business Corporation Code. ARTICLE IV (a) The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by, or under the direction of, a Board of Directors comprised as follows: 1. The number of directors shall be not less than five, nor more than fifteen, and shall be fixed within such range by the Board of Directors. 2. The directors shall be divided into three classes, designated as Class I, Class II, and Class III. Each class shall consist, as nearly as may be possible, of one-third of the total number of directors constituting the entire Board of Directors. Each initial director in Class I shall hold office for a term that expires at the first annual meeting of shareholders after his election; each initial director in Class II shall hold office for a term that expires at the second annual meeting of shareholders after his election; and each initial director in Class III shall hold office for a term that expires at the third annual meeting of shareholders after his election. At each annual meeting of shareholders, successors to the class of 2

directors whose term expires at that annual meeting of shareholders shall be elected for a three-year term. If the number of directors has changed, any increase or decrease shall be apportioned among the classes so as to maintain the number of directors in each class as nearly equal as possible. Any additional director of any class elected by the shareholders to the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in such a class shall hold office for a term that shall coincide with the remaining term of that class. Any additional director of any class elected by the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in such a class shall hold office for a term that shall expire at the next annual meeting of shareholders, and, if such newly-created directorship is to be continued, a nominee therefor shall be submitted to the shareholders for their vote. In no case shall a decrease in the number of directors for a class shorten the term of an incumbent director. A director shall hold office until the annual meeting of shareholders for the year in which such director's term expires and until his or her successor shall be elected and qualified, subject, however, to prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office. 3. Any vacancy on the Board of Directors that results from an increase in the number of directors or from prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office of a director shall be filled by a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, though less than a quorum, or by the sole remaining director. Any director elected to fill a vacancy resulting from prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office of a director, shall have the same remaining term as that of his or her predecessor. (b) Except as may be prohibited by law or by these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, the Board of Directors shall have the right to make, alter, amend, change, add to, or repeal the bylaws of the Corporation, and have the right (which, to the extent exercised, shall be exclusive) to establish the rights, powers, duties, rules and procedures that from time to time shall govern the Board of Directors and its members, including without limitation, the vote required for any action by the Board of Directors, and that from time to time shall affect the directors' powers to manage the business and affairs of the Corporation. No bylaw shall be adopted by shareholders that shall impair or impede the implementation of the foregoing. (c) Notwithstanding any other provisions of these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or the bylaws of the Corporation (and notwithstanding the fact that a lesser percentage for separate class vote for certain actions may be permitted by law, by these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or by the bylaws of the Corporation), the affirmative vote of the holders of not less than two-thirds (2/3) of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders of all of the outstanding shares of the Corporation then entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class, shall be required to amend or repeal this Article IV or to adopt any provision of these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or the bylaws of the Corporation inconsistent with this Article IV. The holder of each share of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon shall be entitled to cast the same number of votes as the holder of such shares is entitled to cast generally in the election of each director. This Article IV (c) shall not apply, and such two-thirds (2/3) vote shall not be required, with respect to any amendment or repeal of any provision of this Article IV or the adoption of any 3

such inconsistent provision, if such amendment, repeal or adoption is recommended by a majority of the Board of Directors. (d) The invalidity or unenforceability of this Article IV, or any portion hereof, or of any action taken pursuant to this Article IV shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, any action taken pursuant to such other provision, or any action taken pursuant to this Article IV. ARTICLE V (a) No director shall have any liability to the Corporation or to its shareholders for monetary damages for any action taken, or any failure to take action, as a director, except for: (1) any appropriation of any business opportunity of the Corporation in violation of the director's duties; (2) acts or omissions which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law; (3) the types of liability set forth in Section 14-2-832 of the Georgia Business Corporation Code; or (4) any transaction from which the director received an improper personal benefit. (b) Any repeal or modification of the provisions of this Article V by the shareholders of the Corporation shall be prospective only and shall not adversely affect any limitation on the liability of a director of the Corporation with respect to any act or omission occurring prior to the effective date of such repeal or modification. If the Georgia Business Corporation Code is amended, after this Article V becomes effective, to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the liability of directors, then, without further corporate action, the liability of a director of the Corporation, in addition to the limitation on liability provided herein, shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by the Georgia Business Corporation Code, as so amended. ARTICLE VI The Corporation shall indemnify its officers and directors to the fullest extent permitted under the Georgia Business Corporation Code. Such indemnification shall not be deemed exclusive of any additional indemnification that the Board of Directors may deem advisable or of any rights to which those indemnified may otherwise be entitled. The Board of Directors of the Corporation may determine from time-to-time whether and to what extent to maintain insurance providing indemnification for officers and directors and such insurance need not be limited to the Corporation's power of indemnification under the Georgia Business Corporation Code. Any repeal or modification of the provisions of this Article VI by the shareholders of the Corporation shall be prospective only and shall not adversely affect any right to indemnification of a director or officer of the Corporation with respect to any act or omission occurring prior to the effective date of such repeal or modification. 4

ARTICLE VII In discharging the duties of their respective positions and in determining what is believed to be in the best interests of the Corporation, the Board of Directors, committees of the Board of Directors, and individual directors, in addition to considering the effects of any action on the Corporation or its shareholders, may consider the interests of the employees, customers, suppliers, and creditors of the Corporation and its subsidiaries, the communities in which offices or other establishments of the Corporation are located, and all other factors such directors consider pertinent; provided, however, that this Article VII shall be deemed solely to grant discretionary authority to the directors and shall not be deemed to provide to any constituency any right to be considered. ARTICLE VIII References herein to the Georgia Business Corporation Code shall be deemed to include any amendments to such Code hereinafter enacted. In the event that any of the provisions of these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (including any provision within a single sentence) is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or otherwise unenforceable, the remaining provisions are severable and shall remain enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

AMENDED AND RESTATED BYLAWS OF EQUIFAX PS, INC. ------------------- ARTICLE ONE MEETINGS OF THE SHAREHOLDERS Section 1.1 Annual Meeting. The annual meeting of the Shareholders of the -------------- Company (the "Annual Meeting") shall be held during the first five months after the end of each fiscal year of the Company at such time and place, within or without the State of Georgia, as shall be fixed by the Board of Directors, for the purpose of electing Directors and for the transaction of such other business as may be properly brought before the meeting. Section 1.2 Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Shareholders may be ---------------- held at the principal office of the Company in the State of Georgia or at such other place, within or without the State of Georgia, as may be named in the call therefor. Such special meetings may be called by the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Vice Chairman, the Chief Executive Officer, the President, the Board of Directors by vote at a meeting, a majority of the Directors in writing without a meeting, or by unanimous call of the Shareholders. Section 1.3 Notice of Meetings. Unless waived in accordance with the ------------------ Georgia Business Corporation Code as amended from time to time (the "Code"), a notice of each meeting of Shareholders stating the date, time and place of the meeting shall be given not less than 10 days nor more than 60 days before the date thereof to each Shareholder entitled to vote at that meeting. In the case of an Annual Meeting, the notice need not state the purpose or purposes of the meeting unless the Articles of Incorporation or the Code requires the purpose or purposes to be stated in the notice of the meeting. Any irregularity in such notice shall not affect the validity of the Annual Meeting or any action taken at such meeting. In the case of a special meeting of the Shareholders, the notice of meeting shall state the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, and only business within the purpose or purposes described in such notice may be conducted at the meeting. Section 1.4 Voting Groups. "Voting group" as used in these Bylaws means ------------- all shares of one or more classes or series that are entitled to vote and be counted together collectively on a matter at a meeting of Shareholders. All shares entitled to vote generally on the matter are for that purpose a single voting group. Section 1.5 Quorum. With respect to shares entitled to vote as a separate ------ voting group on a matter at a meeting of Shareholders, the presence, in person or by proxy, of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast on the matter by the voting group shall constitute a quorum of that voting group for action on that matter unless the Articles of Incorporation or the Code provides otherwise. Once a share is represented for any purpose at a meeting, other than solely to object to holding the meeting or to transacting business at the meeting, it is deemed present for quorum purposes for the remainder of the meeting and for any adjournment of the meeting unless a new record date is or must be set for the adjourned meeting pursuant to Section 1.11 of these Bylaws. 1

Section 1.6 Vote Required for Action. If a quorum exists, action on a ------------------------ matter (other than the election of Directors) is approved if the votes cast favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action, unless the Articles of Incorporation, provisions of these Bylaws validly adopted by the Shareholders, or the Code requires a greater number of affirmative votes. If the Articles of Incorporation or the Code provide for voting by two or more voting groups on a matter, action on that matter is taken only when voted upon by each of those voting groups counted separately. Section 1.7 Adjournments. Whether or not a quorum is present to organize ------------ a meeting, any meeting of Shareholders (including an adjourned meeting) may be adjourned by the holders of a majority of the voting shares represented at the meeting to reconvene at a specific time and place, but no later than 120 days after the date fixed for the original meeting unless the requirements of the Code concerning the selection of a new record date have been met. Section 1.8 Presiding Officer. The Chairman of the Board shall call the ----------------- meeting of the Shareholders to order and shall act as chairman of such meeting. In the absence of the Chairman of the Board, the meeting shall be called to order by any one of the following officers then present, in the following order: any Vice Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, the President, the senior Executive Vice President, the next senior Executive Vice President, or any one of the Vice Presidents, who shall act as chairman of the meeting. The Secretary of the Company shall act as secretary of the meeting of the Shareholders. In the absence of the Secretary, at any meeting of the Shareholders, the presiding officer may appoint any person to act as secretary of the meeting. Section 1.9 Voting of Shares. Unless the Articles of Incorporation or the ---------------- Code provides otherwise, each outstanding share having voting rights shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of Shareholders. Section 1.10 Proxies. A Shareholder entitled to vote pursuant to Section ------- 1.9 may vote in person or by proxy pursuant to an appointment of proxy executed by the Shareholder either in writing or pursuant to an electronic or telephonic transmission, provided that the transmission contains or is accompanied by information from which it can be determined that the Shareholder authorized the transmission. An appointment of proxy shall be valid for only one meeting to be specified therein, and any adjournments of such meeting, but shall not be valid for more than eleven months unless expressly provided therein. Appointments of proxy shall be dated and filed with the records of the meeting to which they relate. If the validity of any appointment of proxy is questioned, it must be submitted for examination to the Secretary of the Company or to a proxy officer or committee appointed by the Board of Directors. The Secretary or, if appointed, the proxy officer or committee shall determine the validity or invalidity of any appointment of proxy submitted, and reference by the Secretary in the minutes of the meeting to the regularity of an appointment of proxy shall be received as prima facie evidence of the facts stated for the purpose of establishing the presence of a quorum at the meeting and for all other purposes. Section 1.11 Record Date. For the purpose of determining Shareholders ----------- entitled to notice of a meeting of the Shareholders, to demand a special meeting, to vote, or to take any other action, the Board of Directors may fix a future date as the record date, which date shall be 2

not more than 70 days prior to the date on which the particular action, requiring a determination of the Shareholders, is to be taken. A determination of the Shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of the Shareholders is effective for any adjournment of the meeting unless the Board of Directors fixes a new record date, which it must do if the meeting is adjourned to a date more than 120 days after the date fixed for the original meeting. If no record date is fixed by the Board of Directors, the 70th day preceding the date on which the particular action, requiring a determination of the Shareholders, is to be taken shall be the record date for that purpose. Section 1.12 Shareholder Proposals and Nominations. ------------------------------------- (a) No proposal for a Shareholder vote shall be submitted by a Shareholder (a "Shareholder Proposal") to the Company's Shareholders unless the Shareholder submitting such proposal (the "Proponent") shall have filed a written notice setting forth with particularity (i) the names and business addresses of the Proponent and all natural persons, corporations, partnerships, trusts or any other type of legal entity or recognized ownership vehicle (collectively, a "Person") acting in concert with the Proponent; (ii) the name and address of the Proponent and the Persons identified in clause (i), as they appear on the Company's books (if they so appear); (iii) the class and number of shares of the Company beneficially owned by the Proponent and by each Person identified in clause (i); (iv) a description of the Shareholder Proposal containing all material information relating thereto; (v) for proposals sought to be included in the Company's proxy statement, any other information required by Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 14a-8; and (vi) such other information as the Board of Directors reasonably determines is necessary or appropriate to enable the Board of Directors and Shareholders of the Company to consider the Shareholder Proposal. The presiding officer at any meeting of the Shareholders may determine that any Shareholder Proposal was not made in accordance with the procedures prescribed in these Bylaws or is otherwise not in accordance with law, and if it is so determined, such officer shall so declare at the meeting and the Shareholder Proposal shall be disregarded. (b) Only persons who are selected and recommended by the Board of Directors or the committee of the Board of Directors designated to make nominations, or who are nominated by Shareholders in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 1.12, shall be eligible for election, or qualified to serve, as Directors. Nominations of individuals for election to the Board of Directors of the Company at any Annual Meeting or any special meeting of Shareholders at which Directors are to be elected may be made by any Shareholder of the Company entitled to vote for the election of Directors at that meeting by compliance with the procedures set forth in this Section 1.12. Nominations by Shareholders shall be made by written notice (a "Nomination Notice"), which shall set forth (i) as to each individual nominated, (A) the name, date of birth, business address and residence address of such individual; (B) the business experience during the past five years of such nominee, including his or her principal occupations and employment during such period, the name and 3

principal business of any corporation or other organization in which such occupations and employment were carried on, and such other information as to the nature of his or her responsibilities and level of professional competence as may be sufficient to permit assessment of such prior business experience; (C) whether the nominee is or has ever been at any time a director, officer or owner of five percent or more of any class of capital stock, partnership interests or other equity interest of any corporation, partnership or other entity; (D) any directorships held by such nominee in any company with a class of securities registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or subject to the requirements of Section 15(d) of such Act or any company registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended; (E) whether such nominee has ever been convicted in a criminal proceeding or has ever been subject to a judgment, order, finding or decree of any federal, state or other governmental entity, concerning any violation of federal, state or other law, or any proceeding in bankruptcy, which conviction, order, finding, decree or proceeding may be material to an evaluation of the ability or integrity of the nominee; and (F) all other information relating to such individual that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of Directors in an election contest, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended; and (ii) as to the Person submitting the Nomination Notice and any Person acting in concert with such Person, (X) the name and business address of such Person, (Y) the name and address of such Person as they appear on the Company's books (if they so appear), and (Z) the class and number of shares of the Company that are beneficially owned by such Person. A written consent to being named in a proxy statement as a nominee, and to serve as a Director if elected, signed by the nominee, shall be filed with any Nomination Notice, together with evidence satisfactory to the Company that such nominee has no interests that would limit his or her ability to fulfill his or her duties of office. If the presiding officer at any meeting of the Shareholders determines that a nomination was not made in accordance with the procedures prescribed by these Bylaws, such officer shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination shall be disregarded. (c) If a Shareholder Proposal or Nomination Notice is to be submitted at an Annual Meeting of the Shareholders, it shall be delivered to and received by the Secretary of the Company at the principal executive office of the Company at least 120 days before the first anniversary of the date that the Company's proxy statement was released to Shareholders in connection with the previous year's Annual Meeting of Shareholders. However, if no Annual Meeting of the Shareholders was held in the previous year or if the date of the Annual Meeting of the Shareholders has been changed by more than 30 days from the date contemplated at the time of the previous year's proxy statement, the notice shall be delivered to and received by the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Company not later than the last to occur of (i) the date that is 150 days prior to the date of the contemplated Annual Meeting or (ii) the date that is 10 days after the date of the first public announcement or other notification to the Shareholders of the date of the contemplated Annual Meeting. Subject to Section 1.3 as to 4

matters that may be acted upon at a special meeting of the Shareholders, if a Shareholder Proposal or Nomination Notice is to be submitted at a special meeting of the Shareholders, it shall be delivered to the Secretary of the Company at the principal executive office of the Company no later than the close of business on the earlier of (i) the 30th day following the public announcement that a matter will be submitted to a vote of the Shareholders at a special meeting, or (ii) the 10th day following the day on which notice of the special meeting was given. In addition, if a Shareholder intends to solicit proxies from the Shareholders of the Company for any meeting of the Shareholders, such Shareholder shall notify the Company of this intent in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 14a-4.

The Directors shall be divided into three classes, designated as Class I, Class II and Class III. Each class shall consist, as nearly as may be possible, of one-third of the total number of Directors constituting the entire Board of Directors. Each initial Director in Class I shall hold office for a term that expires at the first Annual Meeting of the Shareholders after his election; each initial Director in Class II shall hold office for a term that expires at the second Annual Meeting of the Shareholders after his election; and each initial Director in Class III shall hold office for a term that expires at the third Annual Meeting of the Shareholders after his election. At each Annual Meeting of the Shareholders, successors to the class of Directors whose term expires at that Annual Meeting of the Shareholders shall be elected for a three-year term. If the number of Directors has changed, any increase or decrease shall be apportioned among the classes so as to maintain the number of Directors in each class as nearly equal as possible. Any additional Director of any class elected by the Shareholders to the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in such a class shall hold office for a term that shall coincide with the remaining term of that class. Any additional Director of any class elected by the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in such a class shall hold office for a term that shall expire at the next Annual Meeting of the Shareholders, and, if such newly-created directorship is to be continued, a nominee therefor shall be submitted to the Shareholders for their vote. In no case shall a decrease in the number of Directors for a class shorten the term of an incumbent Director. A Director shall hold office until the Annual Meeting of the Shareholders for the year in which such Director's term expires and until his or her successor shall be elected and qualified, subject, however, to prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office. 5

Section 2.5 Term Limits. A Director ceasing to continue a regular ----------- business relationship (as defined below) shall automatically retire from the Board, except that a non-employee Director who ceases to continue a regular business relationship may continue serving as a Director until the next Annual Meeting of the Shareholders.

For purposes of this Section 2.5, the expression "regular business relationship" means a relationship as an employee, consultant or officer of a substantial business, professional or educational organization, which requires exercise of business judgment on a regular basis, and which is not lower in seniority than the position with such organization occupied by the Director at the time of the Director's first election to the Board of Directors of the Company.

At any adjourned meeting, any business may be transacted that could have been transacted at the meeting prior to adjournment. If notice of the original meeting was properly given, it shall not be necessary to 6

give any notice of the adjourned meeting or of the business to be transacted if the date, time and place of the adjourned meeting are announced at the meeting prior to adjournment. Section 2.10 Vote Required for Action. If a quorum is present when a vote ------------------------ is taken, the affirmative vote of a majority of Directors present is the act of the Board of Directors unless the Code, the Articles of Incorporation, or these Bylaws provide for the vote of a different number of Directors or of specific Directors. Section 2.11 Action by Directors Without a Meeting. Any action required ------------------------------------- or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or any action that may be taken at a meeting of a committee of the Board of Directors may be taken without a meeting if the action is taken by all the members of the Board of Directors or of the committee, as the case may be.

EXHIBIT 4.3 RIGHTS AGREEMENT This RIGHTS AGREEMENT, dated as of _____________, 2001 (this "Agreement"), is made and entered into by and between Equifax PS, Inc., a Georgia corporation (the "Company"), and SunTrust Bank, Atlanta, a Georgia banking corporation (the "Rights Agent"). RECITALS WHEREAS, on ___________, 2001, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized and declared a dividend distribution of one right ("Right") for each share of Common Stock, par value $.01 per share, of the Company (a "Common Share") outstanding as of the Close of Business (as hereinafter defined) on ___________, 2001 (the "Record Date"), each Right initially representing the right to purchase one Common Share, upon the terms and subject to the conditions herein set forth, and further authorized and directed the issuance of one Right with respect to each Common Share issued or delivered by the Company (whether originally issued or delivered from the Company's treasury) after the Record Date but prior to the earlier of the Distribution Date (as hereinafter defined) and the Expiration Date (as hereinafter defined). NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements herein set forth, the parties hereby agree as follows: Section 1. Certain Definitions. For purposes of this Agreement, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated: (a) "Acquiring Person" shall mean any Person (other than the Company or any Subsidiary of the Company or any employee benefit or stock ownership plan of the Company or of any Subsidiary of the Company or any entity holding Common Shares for or pursuant to the terms of any such plan or, prior to the Spinoff Date, Equifax Inc. or any of its Affiliates or Associates) who or which, together with all Affiliates and Associates of such Person, shall be the Beneficial Owner of 15% or more of the Common Shares then outstanding; provided, however, that a Person shall not be deemed to have become an Acquiring Person solely as a result of a reduction in the number of Common Shares outstanding or solely as a result of any acquisition that is approved in advance by the Board of Directors of the Company, in each case unless and until such time as (i) such Person or any Affiliate or Associate of such Person shall thereafter become the Beneficial Owner of any additional Common Shares, other than as a result of a stock dividend, stock split or similar transaction effected by the Company in which all holders of Common Shares are treated equally or in a transaction that is approved in advance by the Board of Directors, or (ii) any other Person who is the Beneficial Owner of any Common Shares shall thereafter become an Affiliate or Associate of such Person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Board of Directors determines in good faith that a Person who otherwise would be an Acquiring Person as defined under the foregoing provisions of this Section 1(a) has become such inadvertently, and such Person has divested or agrees to divest as promptly as practicable (as determined by the Board of Directors of the Company) a sufficient number of Common Shares so that such Person would no longer be an Acquiring Person as defined under the foregoing provisions, then such Person shall not be deemed an Acquiring Person for any purposes of this

Agreement unless and until such Person shall again become an Acquiring Person as herein defined.

Subject to the provisions of Section 22 hereof, the Right Certificates, whenever issued, on their face shall entitle the holders thereof to purchase such number of Common Shares as shall be set forth therein at the Purchase Price set forth therein, but the Purchase Price, the number and kind of securities 6

issuable upon exercise of each Right and the number of Rights outstanding shall be subject to adjustment as provided herein. (b) Any Rights Certificate issued hereunder that represents Rights beneficially owned by (i) an Acquiring Person or any Associate or Affiliate of an Acquiring Person, (ii) a transferee of an Acquiring Person (or an any such Associate or Affiliate) who becomes a transferee after the Acquiring Person becomes such, or (iii) a transferee of an Acquiring Person (or of any such Associate or Affiliate) who becomes a transferee prior to or concurrently with the Acquiring Person becoming such and receives such Rights pursuant to either (A) a transfer (whether or not for consideration) from the Acquiring Person to holders of equity interests in such Acquiring Person or to any Person with whom such Acquiring Person has any continuing agreement, arrangement or understanding regarding the transferred Rights or (b) a transfer that the Board of Directors of the Company has determined is part of a plan, arrangement or understanding that has the primary purpose or effect the avoidance of Section 7(d) hereof, and any Right Certificate issued pursuant to Section 6 or Section 11 hereof upon transfer, exchange, replacement or adjustment of any other Right Certificate referred to in this sentence, shall contain (to the extent feasible) the following legend: The Rights represented by this Right Certificate are or were beneficially owned by Person who was or became an Acquiring Person or an Affiliate or Associate of an Acquiring Person (as such terms are defined in the Rights Agreement). Accordingly, this Right Certificate and the Rights represented hereby may become null and void in the circumstances specified in the Rights Agreement. Section 5. Countersignature and Registration.

In case any officer of the Company who shall have signed any of the Right Certificates shall cease to be such officer of the Company before countersignature by the Rights Agent and issuance and delivery by the Company, such Right Certificates, nevertheless, may be countersigned by the Rights Agent, and issued and delivered by the Company with the same force and effect as though the person who signed such Right Certificates had not ceased to be such officer of the Company; and any Right Certificate may be signed on behalf of the Company by any person who, at the actual date of the execution of such Right Certificate, shall be a proper officer of the Company to sign such Right Certificate, although at the date of the execution of this Rights Agreement any such person was not such an officer. (b) Following the Distribution Date, the Rights Agent shall keep or cause to be kept, at the principal office of the Rights Agent designated for such purpose and at 7

such other offices as may be required to comply with any applicable law or with any rule or regulation made pursuant thereto or with any rule or regulation of any stock exchange or any transaction reporting system on which the Rights may from time to time be listed or quoted, books for registration and transfer of the Right Certificates issued hereunder.

Any registered holder desiring to transfer, split up, combine or exchange Right Certificates shall make such request in writing delivered to the Rights Agent, and shall surrender the Right Certificate or Right Certificates to be transferred, split up, combined or exchanged at the principal office of the Rights Agent designated for such purpose. Thereupon or as promptly as practicable thereafter, subject to the provisions of Sections 7(d) and 14 hereof, the Company shall prepare, execute and deliver to the Rights Agent, and the Rights Agent shall countersign and deliver a Right Certificate or Right Certificates, as the case may be, as so requested. The Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer, split up, combination or exchange of Right Certificates. (b) Upon receipt by the Company and the Rights Agent of evidence reasonably satisfactory to them of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of a Right Certificate, and of indemnity or security reasonably satisfactory to them, and reimbursement to the Company and the Rights Agent of all reasonable expenses incidental thereto, and upon surrender to the Rights Agent and cancellation of the Right Certificate if mutilated, the Company shall prepare, execute and deliver a new Right Certificate of like tenor to the Rights Agent and the Rights Agent shall countersign and deliver such new Right Certificate to the registered holder in lieu of the Right Certificate so lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated. Section 7. Exercise of Rights; Purchase Price; Expiration Date of Rights. (a) The registered holder of any Right Certificate may exercise the Rights evidenced thereby (except as otherwise provided herein) in whole or in part at any time after the Distribution Date and prior to the Expiration Date, upon surrender of the Right Certificate, with the form of election to purchase on the reverse side thereof duly executed, to the Rights Agent at the office or offices of the Rights Agent designated for 8

such purpose, together with payment in cash, in lawful money of the United States of America by certified check or bank draft payable to the order of the Company equal to the sum of (i) the aggregate Purchase Price for the total number of securities as to which such surrendered Rights are exercised and (ii) an amount equal to any applicable transfer tax required to be paid by the holder of such Right Certificate in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 hereof. In lieu of the cash payment referred to in the immediately preceding sentence, following the occurrence of a Triggering Event, the registered holder of a Right Certificate may exercise the Rights evidenced thereby (except as otherwise provided herein) in whole or in part upon surrender of the Right Certificate as described above together with an election to exercise such Rights without payment of cash on the reverse side thereof duly completed. With respect to any Rights as to which such an election is made, the holder shall receive a number of Common Shares or other securities having a value equal to the difference between (x) the value of the Common Shares or other securities that would have been issuable upon payment of the cash amount as described above, and (y) the sum of items (i) and (ii) above. For purposes of this Section 7(a), the value of any Common Share or other security shall be the current per share market price of a Common Share (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) on the Trading Day immediately preceding the date of the first occurrence of a Triggering Event. (b) Upon receipt of a Right Certificate representing exercisable Rights with the form of election to purchase duly executed, accompanied by either payment as described in Section 7(a) above or a duly completed election to exercise without payment of cash, the Rights Agent shall promptly (i) requisition from any transfer agent of the Common Shares (or make available, if the Rights Agent is the transfer agent) certificates representing the number of Common Shares to be purchased (and the Company hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs its transfer agent to comply with all such requests), (ii) after receipt of such certificates, cause the same to be delivered to or upon the order of the registered holder of such Right Certificate, registered in such name or names as may be designated by such holder, (iii) when appropriate, requisition from the Company or any transfer agent therefor (or make available, if the Rights Agent is the transfer agent) certificates representing the number of equivalent common shares to be issued in lieu of the issuance of Common Shares in accordance with the provisions of Section 11(a)(iii) hereof, (iv) when appropriate, after receipt of such certificates, cause the same to be delivered to or upon the order of the registered holder of such Right Certificate, registered in such name or names as may be designated by such holder, (v) when appropriate, requisition from the Company the amount of cash to be paid in lieu of the issuance of fractional shares in accordance with the provisions of Section 14 hereof or in lieu of the issuance of Common Shares in accordance with the provisions of Section 11(a)(iii) hereof, (vi) when appropriate, after receipt, deliver such cash to or upon the order of the registered holder of such Right Certificate, and (vii) when appropriate, deliver any due bill or other instrument provided to the Rights Agent by the Company for delivery to the registered holder of such Right Certificate as provided by Section 11(1) hereof. 9

(c) In case the registered holder of any Right Certificate shall exercise less than all the Rights evidenced thereby, the Company shall prepare, execute and deliver a new Right Certificate evidencing Rights equivalent to the Rights remaining unexercised and the Rights Agent shall countersign and deliver such new Right Certificate to the registered holder of such Right Certificate or to his duly authorized assigns, subject to the provisions of Section 14 hereof. (d) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, from and after the later of the Distribution Date and the first occurrence of a Triggering Event, any Rights beneficially owned by (i) an Acquiring Person or an Associate or Affiliate of an Acquiring Person, (ii) a transferee of an Acquiring Person (or of any such Associate or Affiliate) who becomes a transferee after the Acquiring Person becomes such, or (iii) a transferee of an Acquiring Person (or of any such Associate or Affiliate) who becomes a transferee prior to or concurrently with the Acquiring Person becoming such and receives such rights pursuant to either (A) a transfer (whether or not for consideration) from the Acquiring Person to holders of equity interests in such Acquiring Person or to any Person with whom the Acquiring Person has any continuing agreement, arrangement or understanding regarding the transfer of Rights, or (B) a transfer that the Board of Directors of the Company has determined is part of a plan, arrangement or understanding that has as a primary purpose or effect the avoidance of this Section 7(d), shall become null and void without any further action, no holder of such Rights shall have any rights whatsoever with respect to such Rights, whether under any provision of this Agreement or otherwise, and any Right Certificate delivered to the Rights Agent for transfer to an Acquiring Person or any Affiliate or Associate thereof shall be cancelled. The Company shall use all reasonable efforts to ensure that the provisions of this Section 7(d) and Section 4(b) hereof are complied with, but shall have no liability to any holder of Rights Certificates or other Person as a result of its failure to make any determinations with respect to an Acquiring Person or its Affiliates, Associates or transferees hereunder. (e) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither the Rights Agent nor the Company shall be obligated to undertake any action with respect to any purported transfer, split up, combination or exchange of any Right Certificate pursuant to Section 6 hereof or exercise of a Right Certificate as set forth in this Section 7 unless the registered holder of such Right Certificate shall have (i) completed and signed the certificate following the form of assignment or form of election to purchase, as applicable, set forth on the reverse side of the Right Certificate surrendered for such transfer, split up, combination, exchange or exercise, and (ii) provided such additional evidence of the identity of the Beneficial Owner (or former Beneficial Owner) or Affiliates or Associates thereof as the Company shall have reasonably requested. Section 8. Cancellation and Destruction of Right Certificates. All Right Certificates surrendered for the purpose of exercise, transfer, split up, combination or exchange shall, if surrendered to the Company or to any of its stock transfer agents, be delivered to the Rights Agent for cancellation or in cancelled form, or, if surrendered to the Rights Agent, shall be cancelled by it, and no Right Certificates shall be issued in lieu thereof except as expressly permitted by this Agreement. The Company shall deliver to 10

the Rights Agent for cancellation and retirement, and the Rights Agent shall so cancel and retire, any other Right Certificate purchased or acquired by the Company otherwise than upon the exercise thereof. The Rights Agent shall deliver all cancelled Right Certificates to the Company, or shall, at the written request of the Company, destroy such cancelled Right Certificates, and in such case shall deliver a certificate of destruction thereof to the Company. Section 9. Company Covenants Concerning Securities and Rights. The Company covenants and agrees that: (a) So long as the Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Rights may be listed on a national securities exchange, it shall endeavor to cause, from and after such time as the Rights become exercisable, all securities reserved for issuance upon the exercise of Rights to be listed on such exchange upon official notice of issuance. (b) It shall take all such action as may be necessary to ensure that all Common Shares and/or other securities delivered upon exercise of Rights, at the time of delivery of the certificates for such securities shall be (subject to payment of the Purchase Price) duly and validly authorized and issued, fully paid and nonassessable securities. (c) It shall pay when due and payable any and all federal and state transfer taxes and charges that may be payable in respect of the issuance or delivery of the Right Certificates and of any certificates representing securities issued upon the exercise of Rights; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any transfer tax or charge which may be payable in respect of any transfer or delivery of Right Certificates to a person other than, or the issuance or delivery of certificates representing securities issued upon the exercise of Rights in a name other than that of, the registered holder of the Right Certificate evidencing Rights surrendered for exercise, or to issue or deliver any certificates representing securities issued upon the exercise of any Rights until any such tax or charge shall have been paid (any such tax or charge being payable by the holder of such Right Certificate at the time of surrender) or until it has been established to the Company's reasonable satisfaction that no such tax is due. (d) It shall use its best efforts (i) to file on an appropriate form, as soon as practicable following the later of the first occurrence of a Triggering Event or the Distribution Date, a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the securities issuable upon exercise of the Rights, (ii) to cause such registration statement to become effective as soon as practicable after such filing, and (iii) to cause such registration statement to remain effective (with a prospectus at all times meeting the requirements of the Act) until the earlier of (A) the date as of which the Rights are no longer exercisable for such securities and (B) the Expiration Date. The Company shall also take such action as may be appropriate under, or to ensure compliance with, the securities or "blue sky" laws of the various states in connection with the exercisability of the Rights. The Company may temporarily suspend, for a period of time after the date set forth in clause (i) of the first sentence of this Section 9(d), the exercisability of the Rights in order to prepare and file such registration statement and to permit it to become 11

effective. Upon any such suspension, the Company shall issue a public announcement stating that the exercisability of the Rights has been temporarily suspended, as well as a public announcement at such time as the suspension is no longer in effect. In addition, if the Company shall determine that a registration statement should be filed under the Securities Act or any state securities laws following the Distribution Date, the Company may temporarily suspend the exercisability of the Rights in each relevant jurisdiction until such time as a registration statement has been declared effective and, upon any such suspension, the Company shall issue a public announcement stating that the exercisability of the Rights has been temporarily suspended, as well as a public announcement at such time as the suspension is no longer in effect. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Rights shall not be exercisable in any jurisdiction if the requisite registration or qualification in such jurisdiction shall not have been effected or the exercise of the Rights shall not be permitted under applicable law. (e) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, after the Distribution Date it shall not, except as permitted by Section 23, 26 or 27 hereof, take (or permit any Subsidiary to take) any action if at the time such action is taken it is reasonably foreseeable that such action will eliminate or otherwise diminish the benefits intended to be afforded by the Rights. (f) In the event that the Company is obligated to issue other securities of the Company and/or pay cash pursuant to Section 11, 13 or 14 hereof, it shall make all arrangements necessary so that such other securities and/or cash are available for distribution by the Rights Agent, if and when appropriate. Section 10. Record Date. Each Person in whose name any certificate representing Common Shares is issued upon the exercise of Rights shall for all purposes be deemed to have become the holder of record of the Common Shares represented thereby on, and such certificate shall be dated, the date upon which the Right Certificate evidencing such Rights was duly surrendered and payment of the Purchase Price (and all applicable transfer taxes) was made; provided, however, that if the date of such surrender and payment is a date upon which the Common Shares transfer books of the Company are closed, such Person shall be deemed to have become the record holder of such securities on, and such certificate shall be dated, the next succeeding Business Day on which the Common Shares transfer books of the Company are open. Prior to the exercise of the Rights evidenced thereby, the holder of a Right Certificate shall not be entitled to any rights of a shareholder of the Company with respect to securities for which the Rights shall be exercisable, including, without limitation, the right to vote, to receive dividends or other distributions or to exercise any preemptive rights, and shall not be entitled to receive any notice of any proceedings of the Company, except as provided herein. Section 11. Adjustment of Purchase Price, Number and Kind of Securities or Number of Rights. The Purchase Price, the number and kind of securities issuable upon exercise of each Right and the number of Rights outstanding are subject to adjustment from time to time as provided in this Section 11. 12

(a) (i) In the event that the Company shall at any time after the date of this Agreement (A) effect a dividend on the Common Shares payable in Common Shares, (B) subdivide the outstanding Common Shares, (C) combine the outstanding Common Shares into a smaller number of shares or (D) issue any shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of the Common Shares (including any such reclassification in connection with a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing or surviving corporation), the Purchase Price in effect at the time of the record date for such dividend or on the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification, and/or the number and/or kind of shares of capital stock issuable on such date upon exercise of a Right, shall be proportionately adjusted so that the holder of any Right exercised after such time shall be entitled to receive upon payment of the Purchase Price then in effect the aggregate number and kind of shares of capital stock which, if such Right had been exercised immediately prior to such date and at a time when the Common Shares transfer books of the Company were open, the holder of such Right would have owned upon such exercise and been entitled to receive by virtue of such dividend, subdivision, combination or reclassification. If an event occurs which would require an adjustment under both this Section 11(a)(i) and Section 11(a)(ii) hereof or Section 13 hereof, the adjustment provided for in this Section 11(a)(i) shall be in addition to, and shall be made prior to, any adjustment required pursuant to Section 11(a)(ii) or Section 13 hereof. (ii) Subject to the provisions of Section 23, 26 or 27 hereof, in the event that: (A) any Acquiring Person or any Affiliate or Associate of any Acquiring Person, at any time after the date of this Agreement, directly or indirectly, shall (1) merge into the Company or otherwise combine with the Company and the Company shall be the continuing or surviving corporation of such merger or combination (other than in a transaction subject to Section 13 hereof), (2) merge or otherwise combine with any Subsidiary of the Company, (3) in one or more transactions (other than in connection with the exercise or exchange of Rights or the exercise or conversion of securities exercisable for or convertible into shares of any class of capital stock of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries) transfer any assets to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in exchange (in whole or in part) for shares of any class of capital stock of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or for securities exercisable for or convertible into shares of any class of capital stock of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or otherwise obtain from the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, with or without consideration, any additional shares of any class of capital stock of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or securities exercisable for or convertible into shares of any class of capital stock of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (other than as part of a pro rata distribution to all holders of such shares of any class of capital stock of the Company, or any of its Subsidiaries), (4) sell, purchase, lease, exchange, mortgage, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose (in one or more transactions), to, from, with or of, as the case may be, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (other than in a transaction subject to Section 13 hereof ), assets, including securities, on terms and conditions less favorable to the Company than 13

the Company would be able to obtain in arm's-length negotiation with an unaffiliated third party, (5) receive any compensation from the Company or any of its Subsidiaries other than compensation as a director or for full- time employment as a regular employee, in either case, at rates in accordance with the Company's (or its Subsidiaries') past practices, or (6) receive the benefit, directly or indirectly (except proportionately as a shareholder), of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial assistance or any tax credits or other tax advantage provided by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries; or (B) during such time as there is an Acquiring Person, there shall be any reclassification of securities (including any reverse stock split), or recapitalization of the Company, or any merger or consolidation of the Company with any of its Subsidiaries or any other transaction or series of transactions involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (whether or not with or into or otherwise involving an Acquiring Person), other than a transaction subject to Section 13 hereof, which has the effect, directly or indirectly, of increasing by more than 1% the proportionate share of the outstanding shares of any class of equity securities or of securities exercisable for or convertible into equity securities of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of which an Acquiring Person or any Affiliate or Associate of any Acquiring Person, is the Beneficial Owner; or (C) any Acquiring Person shall at any time after the date of this Agreement, become the Beneficial Owner of 20% or more of the Common Shares then outstanding (other than pursuant to any transaction set forth in Section 13(a) hereof); provided, however, that a Person shall not be deemed to have become the Beneficial Owner of 20% or more of the Common Shares then outstanding for the purposes of this Section 11(a)(ii)(C) solely as a result of a reduction in the number of Common Shares outstanding or solely as a result of any acquisition that is approved in advance by the Board of Directors of the Company, in each case unless and until such time as (1) such Person or any Affiliate or Associate of such Person shall thereafter become the Beneficial Owner of any additional Common Shares, other than as a result of a stock dividend, stock split or similar transaction effected by the Company in which all holders of Common Shares are treated equally or in a transaction that is approved in advance by the Board of Directors, or (2) any other Person who is the Beneficial Owner of any Common Shares shall thereafter become an Affiliate or Associate of such Person; then, and in each such case, proper provision shall be made so that each holder of a Right, except as provided below, shall thereafter have a right to receive, upon exercise thereof in accordance with the terms of this Agreement at an exercise price per Right equal to the product of the then-current Purchase Price multiplied by the number of Common Shares for which a Right was exercisable immediately prior to the first occurrence of a Triggering Event, such number of Common Shares as shall equal the result obtained by (x) multiplying the then-current Purchase Price by the number of Common Shares for which a Right was exercisable immediately prior to the first occurrence of a Triggering Event, and dividing that product by (y) 50% 14

of the current per share market price of the Common Shares (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) on the date of the first occurrence of a Triggering Event. (iii) Upon the occurrence of the Distribution Date or a Flip-in Event, if there shall not be sufficient Common Shares authorized but unissued or issued but not outstanding to permit the issuance of all the Common Shares issuable in accordance with the provisions hereof upon the exercise of a Right, the Board of Directors of the Company shall use its best efforts promptly to authorize and, subject to the provisions of Section 9(d) hereof, make available for issuance additional Common Shares or other equity securities of the Company having equivalent voting rights and an equivalent value (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company) to the Common Shares (for purposes of this Section 11(a)(iii), "equivalent common shares"). In the event that equivalent common shares are so authorized, upon the exercise of a Right in accordance with the provisions of Section 7 hereof, the registered holder shall be entitled to receive (A) Common Shares, to the extent any are available and (B) a number of equivalent common shares, which the Board of Directors of the Company shall have determined in good faith to have a value equivalent to the excess of (x) the aggregate current per share market value of all the Common Shares issuable in accordance with subsection (ii) hereof upon the exercise of a Right (the "Exercise Value") over (y) the aggregate current per share market value of any Common Shares available for issuance upon the exercise of such Right; provided, however, that if at any time after 90 calendar days after the first occurrence of a Flip-in Event, there shall not be sufficient Common Shares and/or equivalent common shares available for issuance upon the exercise of a Right, then the Company shall be obligated to deliver, upon the surrender of such Right and without requiring payment of the Purchase Price, Common Shares (to the extent available), equivalent common shares (to the extent available) and then cash (to the extent permitted by applicable law and any agreements or instruments to which the Company is a party in effect immediately prior to the first occurrence of any Flip-in Event), which securities and cash shall have an aggregate value equal to the excess of (1) the Exercise Value over (2) the product of the then-current Purchase Price multiplied by the number of Common Shares for which a Right was exercisable immediately prior to the first occurrence of a Triggering Event. To the extent that any legal or contractual restrictions prevent the Company from paying the full amount of cash payable in accordance with the foregoing sentence, the Company shall pay to holders of the Rights as to which such payments are being made all amounts which are not then restricted on a pro rata basis and shall continue to make payments on a pro rata basis as funds become available until the full amount due to each such Rights holder has been paid. (b) In the event that the Company shall fix a record date for the issuance of rights, options or warrants to all holders of Common Shares entitling them (for a period expiring within 45 calendar days after such record date) to subscribe for or purchase Common Shares (or securities having equivalent rights, privileges and preferences as the Common Shares (for purposes of this Section 11(b), "equivalent common shares")) or securities convertible into Common Shares or equivalent common shares at a price per Common Share or equivalent common share (or having a conversion price per share, if a security convertible into Common Shares or equivalent common shares) less than the current per share market price of the Common 15

Shares (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) on such record date, the Purchase Price to be in effect after such record date shall be determined by multiplying the Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such record date by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of Common Shares outstanding on such record date plus the number of Common Shares which the aggregate offering price of the total number of Common Shares and/or equivalent common shares so to be offered (and/or the aggregate initial conversion price of the convertible securities so to be offered) would purchase at such current per share market price and the denominator of which shall be the number of Common Shares outstanding on such record date plus the number of additional Common Shares and/or equivalent common shares to be offered for subscription or purchase (or into which the convertible securities so to be offered are initially convertible). In case such subscription price may be paid in a consideration part or all of which shall be in a form other than cash, the value of such consideration shall be as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company, whose determination shall be described in a statement filed with the Rights Agent. Common Shares owned by or held for the account of the Company shall not be deemed outstanding for the purpose of any such computation. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever such a record date is fixed; and in the event that such rights, options or warrants are not so issued, the Purchase Price shall be adjusted to be the Purchase Price which would then be in effect if such record date had not been fixed. (c) In the event that the Company shall fix a record date for the making of a distribution to all holders of Common Shares (including any such distribution made in connection with a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing or surviving corporation) of evidences of indebtedness, cash (other than a regular periodic cash dividend), assets, stock (other than a dividend payable in Common Shares) or subscription rights, options or warrants (excluding those referred to in Section 11(b) hereof), the Purchase Price to be in effect after such record date shall be determined by multiplying the Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such record date by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the current per share market price of the Common Shares (as determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) on such record date or, if earlier, the date on which Common Shares begin to trade on an ex-dividend or when-issued basis for such distribution, less the fair market value (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company, whose determination shall be described in a statement filed with the Rights Agent) of the portion of the evidences of indebtedness, cash, assets or stock so to be distributed or of such subscription rights, options or warrants applicable to one Common Share, and the denominator of which shall be such current per share market price of the Common Shares. Such adjustments shall be made successively whenever such a record date is fixed; and in the event that such distribution is not so made, the Purchase Price shall again be adjusted to be the Purchase Price which would then be in effect if such record date had not been fixed. (d) For the purpose of any computation hereunder, the "current per share market price" of Common Shares on any date shall be deemed to be the average of the daily closing prices per share of such Common Shares for the 30 consecutive Trading Days immediately prior to such date; provided, however, that in the event that the current per share market price of the Common Shares is determined during a period following the announcement by the issuer of such Common Shares of (i) a dividend or distribution on such Common Shares payable in such Common Shares or securities convertible into such Common Shares (other than the Rights) or 16

(ii) any subdivision, combination or reclassification of such Common Shares, and prior to the expiration of 30 Trading Days after the ex-dividend date for such dividend or distribution, or the record date for such subdivision, combination or reclassification, then, and in each such case, the current per share market price shall be appropriately adjusted to take into account ex-dividend trading or to reflect the current per share market price per Common Share equivalent. The closing price for each day shall be the last sale price, regular way, or, in case no such sale takes place on such day, the average of the closing bid and asked prices, regular way, in either case as reported in the principal consolidated transaction reporting system with respect to securities listed or admitted to trading on the NYSE or, if the Common Shares are not listed or admitted to trading on the NYSE, as reported in the principal consolidated transaction reporting system with respect to securities listed on the principal national securities exchange on which the Common Shares are listed or admitted to trading or, if the Common Shares are not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange, the last quoted price or, if not so quoted, the average of the high bid and low asked prices in the over-the-counter market, as reported by NASDAQ or such other system then in use, or, if on any such date the Common Shares are not quoted by any such organization, the average of the closing bid and asked prices as furnished by a professional market maker making a market in the Common Shares selected by the Board of Directors of the Company. If the Common Shares are not publicly held or not so listed or traded, or not the subject of available bid and asked quotes, "current per share market price" shall mean the fair value per share as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company, whose determination shall be described in a statement filed with the Rights Agent. (e) Except as set forth below, no adjustment in the Purchase Price shall be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease of at least 1% in such price; provided, however, that any adjustments which by reason of this Section 11(e) are not required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment. All calculations under this Section 11 shall be made to the nearest cent or to the nearest one ten thousandth of a Common Share or other security, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the first sentence of this Section 11(e), any adjustment required by this Section 11 shall be made no later than the earlier of (i) three years from the date of the transaction which requires such adjustment and (ii) the Expiration Date. (f) If as a result of an adjustment made pursuant to Section 11(a) hereof, the holder of any Right thereafter exercised shall become entitled to receive any securities of the Company other than Common Shares, thereafter the number of such other securities so receivable upon exercise of any Right shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions with respect to the Common Shares contained in this Section 11, and the provisions of Sections 7, 9, 10 and 13 hereof with respect to the Common Shares shall apply on like terms to any such other securities. (g) All Rights originally issued by the Company subsequent to any adjustment made to the Purchase Price hereunder shall evidence the right to purchase, at the adjusted Purchase Price, the number of Common Shares issuable from time to time hereunder upon exercise of the Rights, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein. 17

(h) Unless the Company shall have exercised its election as provided in Section 11(i) hereof, upon each adjustment of the Purchase Price as a result of the calculations made in Section 11(b) and Section 11(c) hereof made with respect to a distribution of subscription rights, options or warrants applicable to Common Shares, each Right outstanding immediately prior to the making of such adjustment shall thereafter evidence the right to purchase, at the adjusted Purchase Price, that number of Common Shares (calculated to the nearest one- thousandth of a Common Share) obtained by (i) multiplying (x) the number of Common Shares issuable upon exercise of a Right immediately prior to this adjustment by (y) the Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment of the Purchase Price, and (ii) dividing the product so obtained by the Purchase Price in effect immediately after such adjustment of the Purchase Price. (i) The Company may elect, on or after the date of any adjustment of the Purchase Price, to adjust the number of Rights in substitution for any adjustment in the number of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of a Right. Each of the Rights outstanding after such adjustment of the number of Rights shall be exercisable for the number of Common Shares for which a Right was exercisable immediately prior to such adjustment. Each Right held of record prior to such adjustment of the number of Rights shall become that number of Rights (calculated to the nearest one-thousandth) obtained by dividing the Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to adjustment of the Purchase Price by the Purchase Price in effect immediately after adjustment of the Purchase Price. The Company shall make a public announcement of its election to adjust the number of Rights, indicating the record date for the adjustment, and, if known at the time, the amount of the adjustment to be made. This record date may be the date on which the Purchase Price is adjusted or any day thereafter, but, if the Right Certificates have been issued, shall be at least 10 calendar days later than the date of the public announcement. If Right Certificates have been issued, upon each adjustment of the number of Rights pursuant to this Section 11(i), the Company shall, as promptly as practicable, cause to be distributed to holders of record of Right Certificates on such record date Right Certificates evidencing, subject to the provisions of Section 14 hereof, the additional Rights to which such holders shall be entitled as a result of such adjustment, or, at the option of the Company, shall cause to be distributed to such holders of record in substitution and replacement for the Right Certificates held by such holders prior to the date of adjustment, and upon surrender thereof if required by the Company, new Right Certificates evidencing all the Rights to which such holders shall be entitled after such adjustment. Right Certificates so to be distributed shall be issued, executed and countersigned in the manner provided for herein (and may bear, at the option of the Company, the adjusted Purchase Price) and shall be registered in the names of the holders of record of Right Certificates on the record date specified in the public announcement. (j) Irrespective of any adjustment or change in the Purchase Price or the number or kind of securities issuable upon the exercise of the Rights, the Right Certificates theretofore and thereafter issued may continue to express the Purchase Price and the number and kind of securities which were expressed in the initial Right Certificate issued hereunder. (k) Before taking any action that would cause an adjustment reducing the Purchase Price below the then par value, if any, of the Common Shares or other securities issuable upon exercise of the Rights, the Company shall take any corporate action which may, in the opinion of 18

its counsel, be necessary in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable Common Shares or such other securities at such adjusted Purchase Price. (l) In any case in which this Section 11 shall require that an adjustment in the Purchase Price be made effective as of a record date for a specified event, the Company may elect to defer until the occurrence of such event the issuance to the holder of any Right exercised after such record date the number of Common Shares or other securities of the Company, if any, issuable upon such exercise over and above the number of Common Shares or other securities of the Company, if any, issuable upon such exercise on the basis of the Purchase Price in effect prior to such adjustment; provided, however, that the Company shall deliver to such holder a due bill or other appropriate instrument evidencing such holder's right to receive such additional Common Shares or other securities upon the occurrence of the event requiring such adjustment. (m) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Company shall be entitled to make such reductions in the Purchase Price, in addition to those adjustments expressly required by this Section 11, as and to the extent that in its good faith judgment the Board of Directors of the Company shall determine to be advisable in order that any (i) consolidation or subdivision of the Common Shares, (ii) issuance wholly for cash of Common Shares at less than the current per share market price therefor, (iii) issuance wholly for cash of Common Shares or securities which by their terms are convertible into or exchangeable for Common Shares, (iv) stock dividends, or (v) issuance of rights, options or warrants referred to in this Section 11, hereafter made by the Company to holders of its Common Shares shall not be taxable to such shareholders. Section 12. Certificate of Adjusted Purchase Price or Number of Securities. Whenever an adjustment is made as provided in Section 11 or Section 13 hereof, the Company shall promptly (a) prepare a certificate setting forth such adjustment and a brief statement of the facts accounting for such adjustment, (b) file with the Rights Agent and with each transfer agent for the Common Shares a copy of such certificate, and (c) if such adjustment is made after the Distribution Date, mail a brief summary of such adjustment to each holder of a Right Certificate in accordance with Section 25 hereof. Section 13. Consolidation, Merger or Sale or Transfer of Assets or Earning Power. (a) In the event that, following the Share Acquisition Date, directly or indirectly: (i) the Company shall consolidate with, or merge with or into, any other Person and the Company shall not be the continuing or surviving corporation of such consolidation or merger; or (ii) any Person shall consolidate with the Company, or merge with or into the Company and the Company shall be the continuing or surviving corporation of such merger or consolidation and, in connection with such merger or consolidation, all or part of the Common Shares shall be changed into or 19

exchanged for stock or other securities of any other Person or cash or any other property; or (iii) the Company shall be a party to any statutory share exchange with any other Person; or (iv) the Company shall sell or otherwise transfer (or one or more of its Subsidiaries shall sell or otherwise transfer), in one or more transactions, assets or earning power (including, without limitation, securities creating any obligation on the part of the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries) representing in the aggregate more than 50% of the assets or earning power of the Company and its Subsidiaries (taken as a whole) to any Person or Persons; then, and in each such case, proper provision shall be made so that (A) each holder of a Right (except as otherwise provided herein) shall thereafter have the right to receive, upon the exercise thereof in accordance with the terms of this Agreement at an exercise price per Right equal to the product of the then-current Purchase Price multiplied by the number of Common Shares for which a Right was exercisable immediately prior to the first occurrence of a Triggering Event, such number of validly authorized and issued, fully paid, nonassessable and freely tradable Common Shares of the Issuer, free and clear of any liens, encumbrances and other adverse claims and not subject to any rights of call or first refusal, as shall be equal to the result obtained by (x) multiplying the then-current Purchase Price by the number of Common Shares for which a Right is exercisable immediately prior to the first occurrence of a Triggering Event and dividing that product by (y) 50% of the current per share market price of the Common Shares of the Issuer (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof), on the date of consummation of such Flip-over Event; (B) the Issuer shall thereafter be liable for, and shall assume, by virtue of the consummation of such Flip-over Event, all the obligations and duties of the Company pursuant to this Agreement; (C) the term "Company" shall thereafter be deemed to refer to the Issuer; and (D) the Issuer shall take such steps (including, without limitation, the reservation of a sufficient number of its Common Shares to permit the exercise of all outstanding Rights) in connection with such consummation as may be necessary to assure that the provisions hereof shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly as reasonably may be possible, in relation to its Common Shares thereafter deliverable upon the exercise of the Rights. (b) For purposes of this Section 13, "Issuer" shall mean (i) in the case of any Flip-over Event described in Sections 13(a)(i) or (ii) above, the Person that is the continuing, surviving, resulting or acquiring Person (including the Company as the continuing or surviving corporation of a transaction described in Section 13(a)(ii) above), (ii) in the case of any Flip- over Event described in Section 13(a)(iii) above, the Person acquiring the securities of the shareholders of the Company in such exchange and (iii) in the case of any Flip-over Event described in Section 13(a)(iv) above, the Person that is the party receiving the greatest portion of the assets or earning power (including, without limitation, securities creating any obligation on the part of the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries) transferred pursuant to such transaction or transactions; provided, however, 20

that, in any such case, (A) if (1) no class of equity security of such Person is, at the time of such merger, consolidation or transaction and has been continuously over the preceding 12-month period, registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act, and (2) such Person is a Subsidiary, directly or indirectly, of another Person, a class of equity security of which is and has been so registered, the term "Issuer" shall mean such other Person; and (B) in case such Person is a Subsidiary, directly or indirectly, of more than one Person, a class of equity security of two or more of which are and have been so registered, the term Issuer shall mean whichever of such Persons is the issuer of the equity security having the greatest aggregate market value. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Issuer in any of the Flip-over Events listed above is not a corporation or other legal entity having outstanding equity securities, then, and in each such case, (x) if the Issuer is directly or indirectly wholly owned by a corporation or other legal entity having outstanding equity securities, then all references to Common Shares of the Issuer shall be deemed to be references to the Common Shares of the corporation or other legal entity having outstanding equity securities which ultimately controls the Issuer, and (y) if there is no such corporation or other legal entity having outstanding equity securities, (I) proper provision shall be made so that the Issuer shall create or otherwise make available for purposes of the exercise of the Rights in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, a kind or kinds of security or securities having a fair market value at least equal to the economic value of the Common Shares which each holder of a Right would have been entitled to receive if the Issuer had been a corporation or other legal entity having outstanding equity securities; and (II) all other provisions of this Agreement shall apply to the issuer of such securities as if such securities were Common Shares. (c) The Company shall not consummate any Flip-over Event, unless the Issuer shall have a sufficient number of authorized Common Shares (or other securities as contemplated in Section 13(b) above) which have not been issued or reserved for issuance to permit the exercise in full of the Rights in accordance with this Section 13 and unless prior to such consummation the Company and the Issuer shall have executed and delivered to the Rights Agent a supplemental agreement providing for the terms set forth in subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 13 and further providing that as promptly as practicable after the consummation of any Flip-over Event, the Issuer shall: (i) prepare and file a registration statement under the Securities Act, with respect to the Rights and the securities issuable upon exercise of the Rights on an appropriate form, and shall use its best efforts to cause such registration statement to (A) become effective as soon as practicable after such filing and (B) remain effective (with a prospectus at all times meeting the requirements of the Securities Act) until the Expiration Date; (ii) take all such action as may be appropriate under, or to ensure compliance with, the securities or "blue sky" laws of the various states in connection with the exercisability of the Rights; and 21

(iii) deliver to holders of the Rights historical financial statements for the Issuer and each of its Affiliates which comply in all respects with the requirements for registration on Form 10 (or any successor form) under the Exchange Act. (d) The provisions of this Section 13 shall similarly apply to successive mergers or consolidations or sales or other transfers. In the event that a Flip- over Event occurs at any time after the occurrence of a Flip-in Event, the Rights which have not theretofore been exercised shall thereafter become exercisable in the manner described in Section 13(a) hereof. Section 14. Fractional Rights and Fractional Securities. (a) The Company shall not be required to issue fractions of Right or to distribute Right Certificates which evidence fractional Rights. In lieu of such fractional Rights, the Company shall pay as promptly as practicable to the registered holders of the Right Certificates with regard to which such fractional Rights otherwise would be issuable, an amount in cash equal to the same fraction of the current market value of a whole Right. For the purposes of this Section 14(a), the current market value of a whole Right shall be the closing price of the Rights for the Trading Day immediately prior to the date on which such fractional Rights otherwise would have been issuable. The closing price for any day shall be the last sale price, regular way, or, in case no such sale takes place on such day, the average of the closing bid and asked prices, regular way, in either case as reported in the principal consolidated transaction reporting system with respect to securities listed or admitted to trading on the NYSE or, if the Rights are not listed or admitted to trading on the NYSE, as reported in the principal consolidated transaction reporting system with respect to securities listed on the principal national securities exchange on which the Rights are listed or admitted to trading or, if the Rights are not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange, the last quoted price or, if not so quoted, the average of the high bid and low asked prices in the over-the-counter market, as reported by NASDAQ or such other system then in use or, if on any such date the Rights are not quoted by any such organization, the average of the closing bid and asked prices as furnished by a professional market maker making a market in the Rights selected by the Board of Directors of the Company. If on any such date no such market maker is making a market in the Rights, the fair value of the Rights on such date as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company shall be used. (b) The Company shall not be required to issue fractions of Common Shares or other securities issuable upon exercise or exchange of the Rights or to distribute certificates which evidence any such fractional securities. In lieu of issuing any such fractional securities, the Company may pay to any Person to whom or which such fractional securities would otherwise be issuable an amount in cash equal to the same fraction of the current market value of one such security. For purposes of this Section 14(b), the current market value of a Common Share or other security issuable upon the exercise or exchange of Rights shall be the closing price thereof (as determined in the same manner as set forth for Common Shares in the second sentence of Section 11(d) hereof) for the Trading Day immediately prior to the date of such exercise or exchange; 22

provided, however, that if neither the Common Shares nor any such other securities are publicly held or listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange, or the subject of available bid and asked quotes, the current market value of one Common Share or such other security shall be determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company. Section 15. Rights of Action. All rights of action in respect of this Agreement, excepting the rights of action given to the Rights Agent under Section 18 hereof, are vested in the respective registered holders of the Right Certificates (and, prior to the Distribution Date, the registered holders of the Common Shares); and any registered holder of any Right Certificate (or, prior to the Distribution Date, of the Common Shares), without the consent of the Rights Agent or of the holder of any other Right Certificate (or, prior to the Distribution Date, of the holder of any Common Shares), may in his own behalf and for his own benefit enforce, and may institute and maintain any suit, action or proceeding against the Company to enforce, or otherwise act in respect of, his right to exercise Rights evidenced by such Right Certificate or Common Share certificate in the manner provided in such Right Certificate and in this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing or any remedies available to the holders of Rights, it is specifically acknowledged that the holders of Rights would not have an adequate remedy at law for any breach of this Agreement and shall be entitled to specific performance of the obligations under this Agreement, and injunctive relief against actual or threatened violations of the obligations of any Person subject to this Agreement. Section 16. Agreement of Rights Holders. Every holder of a Right by accepting the same consents and agrees with the Company and the Rights Agent and with every other holder of a Right that: (a) Prior to the Distribution Date, the Rights shall be transferable only in connection with the transfer of the Common Shares; (b) After the Distribution Date, the Right Certificates are transferable only on the registry books of the Rights Agent if surrendered at the principal office of the Rights Agent designated for such purpose, duly endorsed or accompanied by a proper instrument of transfer; (c) The Company and the Rights Agent may deem and treat the person in whose name the Right Certificate (or, prior to the Distribution Date, the associated Common Share certificate) is registered as the absolute owner thereof and of the Rights evidenced thereby (notwithstanding any notations of ownership or writing on the Right Certificate or the associated Common Share certificate made by anyone other than the Company or the Rights Agent) for all purposes whatsoever, and neither the Company nor the Rights Agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary; (d) Such holder expressly waives any right to receive any fractional Rights and any fractional securities upon exercise or exchange of a Right, except as otherwise provided in Section 14 hereof; and 23

(e) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither the Company nor the Rights Agent shall have any liability to any holder of a Right or other Person as a result of its inability to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement by reason of any preliminary or permanent injunction or other order, decree or ruling issued by a court of competent jurisdiction or by a governmental, regulatory or administrative agency or commission, or any statute, rule, regulation or executive order promulgated or enacted by any governmental authority, prohibiting or otherwise restraining performance of such obligation; provided, however, that the Company shall use its best efforts to have any such order, decree or ruling lifted or otherwise overturned as soon as possible. Section 17. Right Certificate Holder Not Deemed a Shareholder. No holder, as such, of any Right Certificate shall be entitled to vote, receive dividends or be deemed for any purpose the holder of the Common Shares or any other securities of the Company which may at any time be issuable upon the exercise of the Rights represented thereby, nor shall anything contained herein or in any Right Certificate be construed to confer upon the holder of any Right Certificate, as such, any of the rights of a shareholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to shareholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action, or to receive notice of meetings or other actions affecting shareholders (except as provided in Section 24 hereof), or to receive dividends or subscription rights, or otherwise, until the Right or Rights evidenced by such Right Certificate shall have been exercised in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or exchanged pursuant to the provisions of Section 27 hereof. Section 18. Concerning the Rights Agent. (a) The Company agrees to pay to the Rights Agent reasonable compensation for all services rendered by it hereunder and, from time to time, on demand of the Rights Agent, its reasonable expenses and counsel fees and other disbursements incurred in the administration and execution of this Agreement and the exercise and performance of its duties hereunder. The Company also agrees to indemnify the Rights Agent for, and to hold it harmless against, any loss, liability, suit, action, proceeding or expense, incurred without gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the Rights Agent, for anything done or omitted by the Rights Agent in connection with the acceptance and administration of this Agreement, including the costs and expenses of defending against any claim of liability arising therefrom, directly or indirectly. (b) The Rights Agent shall be protected and shall incur no liability for or in respect of any action taken, suffered or omitted by it in connection with its administration of this Agreement in reliance upon any Right Certificate or certificate evidencing Common Shares or other securities of the Company, instrument of assignment or transfer, power of attorney, endorsement, affidavit, letter, notice, direction, consent, certificate, statement or other paper or document believed by it to be genuine and to be signed, 24

executed and, where necessary, verified or acknowledged, by the proper Person or Persons. Section 19. Merger or Consolidation or Change of Name of Rights Agent. (a) Any corporation into which the Rights Agent or any successor Rights Agent may be merged or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Rights Agent or any successor Rights Agent shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to the corporate trust business of the Rights Agent or any successor Rights Agent, shall be the successor to the Rights Agent under this Agreement without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, provided that such corporation would be eligible for appointment as a successor Rights Agent under the provisions of Section 21 hereof. In case at the time such successor Rights Agent shall succeed to the agency created by this Agreement, any of the Right Certificates shall have been countersigned but not delivered, any such successor Rights Agent may adopt the countersignature of the predecessor Rights Agent and deliver such Right Certificates so countersigned; and in case at that time any of the Right Certificates shall not have been countersigned, any successor Rights Agent may countersign such Right Certificates either in the name of the predecessor Rights Agent or in the name of the successor Rights Agent; and in all such cases such Right Certificates shall have the full force provided in the Right Certificates and in this Agreement. (b) In case at any time the name of the Rights Agent shall be changed and at such time any of the Right Certificates shall have been countersigned but not delivered, the Rights Agent may adopt the countersignature under its prior name and deliver Right Certificates so countersigned; and in case at that time any of the Right Certificates shall not have been countersigned, the Rights Agent may countersign such Right Certificates either in its prior name or in its changed name; and in all such cases such Right Certificates shall have the full force provided in the Right Certificates and in this Agreement. Section 20. Duties of Rights Agent. The Rights Agent undertakes the duties and obligations imposed by this Agreement upon the following terms and conditions, by all of which the Company and the holders of Right Certificates, by their acceptance thereof, shall be bound: (a) The Rights Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be legal counsel for the Company), and the opinion of such counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection to the Rights Agent as to any action taken or omitted by it in good faith and in accordance with such opinion. (b) Whenever in the performance of its duties under this Agreement the Rights Agent shall deem it necessary or desirable that any fact or matter be proved or established by the Company prior to taking or suffering any action hereunder, such fact or matter (unless other evidence in respect thereof be herein specifically prescribed) may 25

be deemed to be conclusively proved and established by a certificate signed by any one of the Chairman of the Board, the President or any Vice President of the Company and delivered to the Rights Agent; and such certificate shall be full authorization to the Rights Agent for any action taken or suffered in good faith by it under the provisions of this Agreement in reliance upon such certificate. (c) The Rights Agent shall be liable hereunder only for its own gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. (d) The Rights Agent shall not be liable for or by reason of any of the statements of fact or recitals contained in this Agreement or in the Right Certificates (except its countersignature thereof) or be required to verify the same, but all such statements and recitals are and shall be deemed to have been made by the Company only. (e) The Rights Agent shall not be under any responsibility in respect of the validity of this Agreement or the execution and delivery hereof (except the due execution and delivery hereof by the Rights Agent) or in respect of the validity or execution of any Right Certificate (except its countersignature thereof); nor shall it be responsible for any breach by the Company of any covenant or condition contained in this Agreement or in any Right Certificate; nor shall it be responsible for any adjustment required under the provisions of Section 11 or Section 13 hereof (including any adjustment which results in Rights becoming void) or responsible for the manner, method or amount of any such adjustment or the ascertaining of the existence of facts that would require any such adjustment (except with respect to the exercise of Rights evidenced by Right Certificates after actual notice of any such adjustment); nor shall it by any act hereunder be deemed to make any representation or warranty as to the authorization or reservation of any shares of stock or other securities to be issued pursuant to this Agreement or any Right Certificate or as to whether any shares of stock or other securities will, when issued, be validly authorized and issued, fully paid and nonassessable. (f) The Company agrees that it will perform, execute, acknowledge and deliver or cause to be performed, executed, acknowledged and delivered all such further and other acts, instruments and assurances as may reasonably be required by the Rights Agent for the carrying out or performing by the Rights Agent of the provisions of this Agreement. (g) The Rights Agent is hereby authorized and directed to accept instructions with respect to the performance of its duties hereunder from any one of the Chairman of the Board, the President or any Vice President of the Company, and to apply to such officers for advice or instructions in connection with its duties, and it shall not be liable for any action taken or suffered to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with instructions of any such officer. (h) The Rights Agent and any shareholder, director, officer or employee of the Rights Agent may buy, sell or deal in any of the Rights or other securities of the Company or become pecuniarily interested in any transaction in which the Company may 26

be interested, or contract with or lend money to the Company or otherwise act as fully and freely as though it were not Rights Agent under this Agreement. Nothing herein shall preclude the Rights Agent from acting in any other capacity for the Company or for any other legal entity. (i) The Rights Agent may execute and exercise any of the rights or powers hereby vested in it or perform any duty hereunder either itself or by or through its attorneys or agents, and the Rights Agent shall not be answerable or accountable for any act, default, neglect or misconduct of any such attorneys or agents or for any loss to the Company resulting from any such act, default, neglect or misconduct, provided reasonable care was exercised in the selection and continued employment thereof. The Rights Agent shall not be under any duty or responsibility to insure compliance with any applicable federal or state securities laws in connection with the issuance, transfer or exchange of Right Certificates. (j) If, with respect to any Right Certificate surrendered to the Rights Agent for exercise, transfer, split up, combination or exchange, the certificate attached to the form of assignment or form of election to purchase, as the case may be, has either not been completed or indicates an affirmative response to clause 1 or 2 thereof, the Rights Agent shall not take any further action with respect to such requested exercise, transfer, split up, combination or exchange, without first consulting with the Company. Section 21. Change of Rights Agent. The Rights Agent or any successor Rights Agent may resign and be discharged from its duties under this Agreement upon 30 calendar days' notice in writing mailed to the Company and to each transfer agent of the Common Shares by registered or certified mail, and to the holders of the Right Certificates by first-class mail. The Company may remove the Rights Agent or any successor Rights Agent upon 30 calendar days' notice in writing, mailed to the Rights Agent or successor Rights Agent, as the case may be, and to each transfer agent of the Common Shares by registered or certified mail, and to the holders of the Right Certificates by first-class mail. If the Rights Agent shall resign or be removed or shall otherwise become incapable of acting, the Company shall appoint a successor to the Rights Agent. If the Company shall fail to make such appointment within a period of 30 calendar days after giving notice of such removal or after it has been notified in writing of such resignation or incapacity by the resigning or incapacitated Rights Agent or by the holder of a Right Certificate (who shall, with such notice, submit his Right Certificate for inspection by the Company), then the registered holder of any Right Certificate may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a new Rights Agent. Any successor Rights Agent, whether appointed by the Company or by such a court, shall be a corporation organized and doing business under the laws of the United States or of the State of Georgia or the State of New York (or of any other state of the United States so long as such corporation is authorized to do business as a banking institution in the State of Georgia or the State of New York), in good standing, having a principal office in the State of Georgia or the State of New York, which is authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers and is subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authority and which has at the time of its appointment as Rights Agent a combined 27

capital and surplus of at least $50 million. After appointment, the successor Rights Agent shall be vested with the same powers, rights, duties and responsibilities as if it had been originally named as Rights Agent without further act or deed; but the predecessor Rights Agent shall deliver and transfer to the successor Rights Agent any property at the time held by it hereunder, and execute and deliver any further assurance, conveyance, act or deed necessary for the purpose. Not later than the effective date of any such appointment, the Company shall file notice thereof in writing with the predecessor Rights Agent and each transfer agent of the Common Shares, and mail a notice thereof in writing to the registered holders of the Right Certificates. Failure to give any notice provided for in this Section 21, however, or any defect therein, shall not affect the legality or validity of the resignation or removal of the Rights Agent or the appointment of the successor Rights Agent, as the case may be. Section 22. Issuance of New Right Certificates. Notwithstanding any of the provisions of this Agreement or of the Rights to the contrary, the Company may, at its option, issue new Right Certificates evidencing Rights in such form as may be approved by its Board of Directors to reflect any adjustment or change in the Purchase Price per share and the number or kind of securities issuable upon exercise of the Rights made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. In addition, in connection with the issuance or sale by the Company of Common Shares following the Distribution Date and prior to the Expiration Date, the Company (a) shall, with respect to Common Shares so issued or sold pursuant to the exercise or conversion of securities issued prior to the Distribution Date which are exercisable for, or convertible into, Common Shares, and (b) may, in any other case, if deemed necessary, appropriate or desirable by the Board of Directors of the Company, issue Right Certificates representing an equivalent number of Rights as would have been issued in respect of such Common Shares if they had been issued or sold prior to the Distribution Date, as appropriately adjusted as provided herein as if they had been so issued or sold; provided, however, that (i) no such Right Certificate shall be issued if, and to the extent that, in its good faith judgment the Board of Directors of the Company shall have determined that the issuance of such Right Certificate could have a material adverse tax consequence to the Company or to the Person to whom or which such Right Certificate otherwise would be issued, and (ii) no such Right Certificate shall be issued if, and to the extent that, appropriate adjustment otherwise shall have been made in lieu of the issuance thereof. Section 23. Redemption. (a) The Board of Directors of the Company may, at its option, redeem all but not less than all of the then-outstanding Rights at the Redemption Price at any time prior to the Close of Business on the later of (i) the Distribution Date and (ii) the Share Acquisition Date, or on such later date as the Board of Directors may designate prior to such time as the Rights are no longer redeemable hereunder. (b) Immediately upon the action of the Board of Directors of the Company ordering the redemption of the Rights, and without any further action and without any notice, the right to exercise the Rights shall terminate and the only right thereafter of the 28

holders of Rights shall be to receive the Redemption Price. Promptly after the action of its Board of Directors ordering the redemption of the Rights, the Company shall publicly announce such action, and within 10 calendar days thereafter, the Company shall give notice of such redemption to the holders of the then-outstanding Rights by mailing such notice to all such holders at their last addresses as they appear upon the registry books of the Company; provided, however, that the failure to give, or any defect in, any such notice shall not affect the validity of the redemption of the Rights. Any notice which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be deemed given, whether or not the holder receives the notice. The notice of redemption mailed to the holders of Rights shall state the method by which the payment of the Redemption Price will be made. The Company may, at its option, pay the Redemption Price in cash, Common Shares (based upon the current per share market price of the Common Shares (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) at the time of redemption) or any other form of consideration deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors of the Company (based upon the fair market value of such other consideration, determined by the Board of Directors of the Company in good faith) or any combination thereof. (c) At any time following the Share Acquisition Date, the Board of Directors of the Company may relinquish the right to redeem the Rights under this Section 23 by duly adopting a resolution to that effect. Immediately upon adoption of such resolution, the rights of the Board of Directors of the Company to redeem the Rights shall terminate without further action and without any notice. Promptly after adoption of such a resolution, the Company shall publicly announce such action; provided, however, that the failure to give, or any defect in, any such notice shall not affect the validity of the action of the Board of Directors of the Company. (d) If, following the occurrence of a Share Acquisition Date and following the expiration of the right of redemption hereunder, (i) a Person who is an Acquiring Person shall have transferred or otherwise disposed of a number of Common Shares in one transaction or series of transactions, not directly or indirectly involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, which did not result in the occurrence of a Triggering Event such that such Person is thereafter the Beneficial Owner of 10% or less of the outstanding Common Shares, and (ii) there are no other Persons immediately following the occurrence of the event described in clause (i) who are Acquiring Persons, then the right of redemption hereunder shall be reinstated and shall thereafter be exercisable subject to the provisions of this Section 23. Section 24. Notice of Certain Events. (a) In case, after the Distribution Date, the Company shall propose (i) to pay any dividend payable in stock of any class to the holders of Common Shares or to make any other distribution to the holders of Common Shares (other than a regular periodic cash dividend), (ii) to offer to the holders of Common Shares rights, options or warrants to subscribe for or to purchase any additional Common Shares or shares of stock of any class or any other securities, rights or options, (iii) to effect any reclassification of its Common Shares (other than a reclassification involving only the subdivision of 29

outstanding Common Shares), (iv) to effect any consolidation or merger into or with, or to effect any sale or other transfer (or to permit one or more of its Subsidiaries to effect any sale or other transfer), in one or more transactions, of assets or earning power (including, without limitation, securities creating any obligation on the part of the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries) representing more than 50% of the assets and earning power of the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to any other Person or Persons, or (v) to effect the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, then, in each such case, the Company shall give to each holder of a Right Certificate, in accordance with Section 25 hereof, a notice of such proposed action, which shall specify the record date for the purposes of such stock dividend, distribution or offering of rights, options or warrants, or the date on which such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer, liquidation, dissolution, or winding up is to take place and the date of participation therein by the holders of the Common Shares, if any such date is to be fixed, and such notice shall be so given, in the case of any action covered by clause (i) or (ii) above, at least 10 calendar days prior to the record date for determining holders of the Common Shares for purposes of such action, and, in the case of any such other action, at least 10 calendar days prior to the date of the taking of such proposed action or the date of participation therein by the holders of the Common Shares, whichever shall be the earlier. (b) In case any Triggering Event shall occur, then, in any such case, the Company shall as soon as practicable thereafter give to the Rights Agent and each holder of a Right Certificate, in accordance with Section 25 hereof, a notice of the occurrence of such event, which shall specify the event and the consequences of the event to holders of Rights. Section 25. Notices. (a) Notices or demands authorized by this Agreement to be given or made by the Rights Agent or by the holder of any Right Certificate to or on the Company shall be sufficiently given or made if sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid, addressed (until another address is filed in writing with the Rights Agent) as follows: Equifax PS, Inc. ______________________________ ______________________________ Attention: Corporate Secretary (b) Subject to the provisions of Section 21 hereof, any notice or demand authorized by this Agreement to be given or made by the Company or by the holder of any Right Certificate to or on the Rights Agent shall be sufficiently given or made if sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid, addressed (until another address is filed in writing with the Company) as follows: SunTrust Bank, Atlanta Corporate Trust Department 30

P.O. Box 4625 Atlanta, Georgia 30302 Attention: Department Manager (c) Notices or demands authorized by this Agreement to be given or made by the Company or the Rights Agent to the holder of any Right Certificate (or, if prior to the Distribution Date, to the holder of any certificate evidencing Common Shares) shall be sufficiently given or made if sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid, addressed to such holder at the address of such holder as shown on the registry books of the Company. Section 26. Supplements and Amendments. Prior to the Distribution Date and subject to the last sentence of this Section 26, the Company may in its sole and absolute discretion and the Rights Agent shall, if the Company so directs, supplement or amend any provision of this Agreement without the approval of any holders of Rights or shares of the Company. From and after the Distribution Date and subject to the last sentence of this Section 26, the Company may in its sole and absolute discretion and the Rights Agent shall, if the Company so directs, supplement or amend this Agreement without the approval of any holders of Right Certificates in order (i) to cure any ambiguity, (ii) to correct or supplement any provision contained herein which may be defective or inconsistent with any other provisions herein, (iii) to shorten or lengthen any time period hereunder, or (iv) to supplement or amend the provisions hereunder in any manner which the Company may deem desirable, including, without limitation, the addition of other events requiring adjustment to the Rights under Sections 11 or 13 hereof or procedures relating to the redemption of the Rights, which supplement or amendment shall not, in the good faith determination of the Board of Directors of the Company, adversely affect the interests of the holders of Right Certificates (other than an Acquiring Person or an Affiliate or Associate of an Acquiring Person). Upon the delivery of a certificate from an officer of the Company that states that the proposed supplement or amendment is in compliance with the terms of this Section 26, the Rights Agent shall execute such supplement or amendment; provided, however, that the failure or refusal of the Rights Agent to execute such supplement or amendment shall not affect the validity of any supplement or amendment adopted by the Company, any of which shall be effective in accordance with the terms thereof. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no supplement or amendment shall be made at such time as the Rights are not then redeemable which decreases the stated Redemption Price or the period of time remaining until the Final Expiration Date or which modifies a time period relating to when the Rights may be redeemed. Section 27. Exchange. (a) The Board of Directors of the Company may, at its option, at any time after the later of the Distribution Date and the first occurrence of a Triggering Event, exchange all or part of the then-outstanding and exercisable Rights (which shall not include Rights that have become void pursuant to the provisions of Section 11(a)(ii) hereof) for Common Shares at an exchange ratio of one Common Share per Right, appropriately adjusted to reflect any stock split, stock dividend or similar transaction 31

occurring after the date hereof (such exchange ratio being hereinafter referred to as the "Exchange Ratio"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Directors shall not be empowered to effect such exchange at any time after any Person (other than the Company, any Subsidiary of the Company, any employee benefit plan of the Company or any such Subsidiary, or any entity holding Common Shares for or pursuant to the terms of any such plan), together with all Affiliates and Associates of such Person, becomes the Beneficial Owner of 50% or more of the Common Shares then outstanding. (b) Immediately upon the action of the Board of Directors of the Company ordering the exchange of any Rights pursuant to Section 27(a) hereof, and without any further action and without any notice, the right to exercise such Rights shall terminate and the only right with respect to such Rights thereafter of the holder of such Rights shall be to receive that number of Common Shares equal to the number of such Rights held by such holder multiplied by the Exchange Ratio. Promptly after the action of the Board of Directors of the Company ordering the exchange of any Rights pursuant to Section 27(a) hereof, the Company shall publicly announce such action, and within 10 calendar days thereafter shall give notice of any such exchange to all of the holders of such Rights at their last addresses as they appear upon the registry books of the Rights Agent; provided, however, that the failure to give, or any defect in, such notice shall not affect the validity of such exchange. Any notice which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be deemed given, whether or not the holder receives the notice. Each such notice of exchange shall state the method by which the exchange of the Common Shares for Rights will be effected and, in the event of any partial exchange, the number of Rights which will be exchanged. Any partial exchange shall be effected pro rata based on the number of Rights (other than Rights which have become void pursuant to the provisions of Section 11(a)(ii) hereof) held by each holder of Rights. (c) In any exchange pursuant to this Section 27, the Company, at its option, may substitute for any Common Share exchangeable for a Right, (i) equivalent common shares (as such term is used in Section 11(a)(iii) hereof), (ii) cash, (iii) debt securities of the Company, (iv) other assets, or (v) any combination of the foregoing, in any event having an aggregate value which the Board of Directors of the Company shall have determined in good faith to be equal to the current market value of one Common Share (determined pursuant to Section 11(d) hereof) on the Trading Day immediately preceding the date of exchange pursuant to this Section 27. Section 28. Successors; Certain Covenants. All the covenants and provisions of this Agreement by or for the benefit of the Company or the Rights Agent shall bind and inure to the benefit of their respective successors and assigns hereunder. Section 29. Benefits of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to give to any Person other than the Company, the Rights Agent and the registered holders of the Right Certificates (and, prior to the Distribution Date, the Common Shares) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under this Agreement; but this Agreement shall be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the Company, the Rights 32

Agent and the registered holders of the Right Certificates (or prior to the Distribution Date, the Common Shares). Section 30. Determinations and Actions by the Board of Directors, etc. For all purposes of this Agreement, any calculation of the number of Common Shares or other securities outstanding at any particular time, including for purposes of determining the particular percentage of such outstanding shares of which any Person is the Beneficial Owner, shall be made in accordance with the last sentence of Rule 13d-3(d)(1)(i) of the General Rules and Regulations under the Exchange Act as in effect on the date of this Agreement. The Board of Directors of the Company shall have the exclusive power and authority to administer this Agreement and to exercise all rights and powers specifically granted to the Board of Directors or to the Company, or as may be necessary or advisable in the administration of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the right and power to (i) interpret the provisions of this Agreement, and (ii) make all determinations deemed necessary or advisable for the administration of this Agreement (including a determination to redeem or exchange or not to redeem or exchange the Rights or to supplement or amend the Agreement). All such actions, calculations, interpretations and determinations (including, for purposes of clause (y) below, all omissions with respect to the foregoing) which are done or made by the Board of Directors in good faith, shall (x) be final, conclusive and binding on the Company, the Rights Agent, the holders of the Rights and all other parties, and (y) not subject any member of the Board to any liability to the holders of the Rights. Section 31. Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated. Section 32. Governing Law. This Agreement and each Right Certificate issued hereunder shall be deemed to be a contract made under the internal substantive laws of the State of Georgia and for all purposes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal substantive laws of such State applicable to contracts to be made and performed entirely within such State. Section 33. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and each of such counterparts shall for all purposes be deemed to be an original, and all such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument. Section 34. Descriptive Headings. Descriptive headings of the several Sections of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not control or affect the meaning or construction of any of the provisions hereof. 33

ARTICLE II ALLOCATION OF TAX LIABILITIES 2.1 Equifax Group. (a) Current and Prior Periods. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Equifax shall be responsible and liable for all Taxes attributable to the Equifax Group that are imposed for any Pre-Distribution Period. Equifax hereby assumes all such liability and shall indemnify and hold harmless PSI and any member of the PSI Group from and against any share or amount of all Taxes attributable to the Equifax Group that are imposed for any Pre-Distribution Period. (b) Future Periods. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Equifax shall be responsible and liable for all Taxes attributable to the Equifax Group that are imposed for any Post-Distribution Period and shall indemnify and hold harmless PSI and any member of the PSI Group from and against all such Taxes. 2.2 PSI Group. (a) Current and Prior Periods. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, PSI shall be responsible and liable for all Taxes attributable to the PSI Group that are imposed for all Pre-Distribution Periods. PSI hereby assumes all such liability and shall indemnify and hold harmless Equifax and any member of the Equifax Group from and against any share or amount of Taxes attributable to the PSI Group that are imposed for any Pre-Distribution Period. (b) Future Periods. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, PSI shall be liable for all Taxes attributable to the PSI Group that are imposed for any Post-Distribution Period, and shall indemnify and hold harmless Equifax and any member of the Equifax Group from and against all such Taxes. 2.3 Restructuring Taxes. (a) Generally. Notwithstanding Section 2.1 or Section 2.2 to the contrary, Equifax shall be responsible and liable for and shall indemnify and hold harmless each member of the PSI Group from and against any and all Contemplated Restructuring Taxes. Notwithstanding anything in this Article II (other than Section 2.3(b) or Section 2.3(c)) to the contrary, Equifax shall be responsible and liable for, and shall indemnify and hold harmless PSI and any member of the PSI Group from and against, any and all Additional Restructuring Taxes.

Notwithstanding anything in this Article II (other than Section 2.3(c)) to the contrary, PSI shall be responsible and liable for and shall indemnify and hold Equifax harmless from and against, (i) any Additional Restructuring Taxes, and (ii) any liability resulting from a decision that Equifax is liable to Equifax's or PSI's shareholders because of a Final Determination that the Distribution is taxable, but in any case only to the extent such Additional Restructuring Taxes or liability to shareholders is due to a PSI Tainting Act (and not an Equifax Tainting Act). -6-

(c) Liability and Indemnification for Combined Tainting Acts. Notwithstanding anything in this Article II to the contrary, in the event of a Final Determination that Additional Restructuring Taxes are due to a Tax Authority and such Additional Restructuring Taxes are caused by both an Equifax Tainting Act and a PSI Tainting Act, then the liability of Equifax and PSI for any Restructuring Taxes arising from such Final Determination and any liability to shareholders arising from such Final Determination shall be borne fifty percent (50%) by Equifax and fifty percent (50%) by PSI. Each party, jointly and severally with its Affiliated Group, agrees to pay and to indemnify and hold the other party harmless from and against the amount of Additional Restructuring Taxes and liability to shareholders allocated to such first party under this subsection 2.3(c). 2.4 Allocation of Tax Liabilities. For purposes of determining whether any Tax Item are attributed to the PSI Group or the Equifax Group and whether any Tax Item is attributable to a Pre-Distribution Period or a Post-Distribution Period, the following principles shall apply: (a) For purposes of this Agreement, the determination of whether Taxes or Tax Items are "attributable" to a member of the PSI Group or the Equifax Group shall be made using the methods that Equifax has used in Tax Periods prior to the Distribution Date to allocate its Tax liabilities among the various members of its affiliated group. The fact that a member of the PSI Group or the Equifax Group prepared or filed a return with respect to any Taxes is not relevant in determining whether such Taxes are "attributable" to such member. (b) The principles of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-76(b) as reasonably interpreted and applied by Equifax shall apply in determining whether a Tax Item is attributable to a Tax Period provided that (i) no election shall be made under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-76(b)(2)(ii) (relating to ratable allocation of a year's item), and (ii) if the Distribution Date does not coincide with the end of a calendar month, the provisions of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-76(b)(2)(iii) will be applied to ratably allocate the items (other than extraordinary items) for the month that includes the Distribution Date. (c) In determining the apportionment of Tax Items between Pre- Distribution Periods and Post-Distribution Periods, any Tax Items relating to the Separation and the Distribution shall be treated as an extraordinary item described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-76(b)(2)(ii)(C) and shall be allocated to Pre- Distribution Periods, and any Taxes related to such items shall be treated under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-76(b)(2)(iv) as relating to such extraordinary item and shall be allocated to Pre-Distribution Periods. 2.5 Certain Representations and Covenants. (a) The parties hereby make the following representations and covenants. (i) PSI for itself and on behalf of each member of the PSI Group represents to Equifax that the information and representations furnished in any Ruling Document (as modified, qualified or elaborated in any subsequent Ruling Documents) are accurate and complete as of the date hereof, to the extent that such information and representations relate to the PSI Group or the business or activities of such entity. -7-

(ii) Equifax for itself and on behalf of each member of the Equifax Group represents to PSI that, as of the date hereof, there is no plan or intention to take any action inconsistent with the information and representations furnished in any Ruling Documents (as modified, qualified or elaborated in any subsequent Ruling Documents). (iii) Each of PSI and Equifax respectively represents to the other party that, as of the date hereof, it is not aware of any plan or intention by the current shareholders of Equifax to sell, exchange, transfer by gift, or otherwise dispose of any of their stock in, or securities of, Equifax or PSI subsequent to the Distribution, except as described in any Ruling Document (as modified, qualified or elaborated in any subsequent Ruling Documents). (iv) Each of PSI and Equifax respectively covenants to the other party (A) that it will use its best efforts to verify that the foregoing representations made by it in this Section 2.5(a) are accurate and complete as of the Distribution Date and (B) if, after the date hereof, it obtains information indicating, or otherwise becomes aware, that any such representations are or may be inaccurate or incomplete, that it will promptly inform the other party, as the case may be. (b) Each of PSI and Equifax covenants to the other party that, except as permitted in Section 2.5(c) such party: (i) During the two-year period following the Distribution Date, it will not merge or consolidate with any other person, or enter into any transaction that constitutes a liquidation of such entity for federal income tax purposes. (ii) During the two-year period following the Distribution Date, it will not sell, exchange, distribute or otherwise dispose of assets used in the active conduct of the historic businesses relied upon to satisfy Code section 355(b), if such sale, exchange, distribution, or other disposition would cause Code section 355(b) not to be satisfied if such test were applied immediately after such transaction. (iii) Following the Distribution, it will, for a minimum of two years, continue the active conduct of the historic businesses relied upon to satisfy Code section 355(b). (iv) It will not redeem, reacquire or otherwise repurchase stock in a manner contrary to the requirements of Section 4.05 of Revenue Procedure 96-30. (v) During the two-year Period following the Distribution Date, it will not engage in any transaction resulting in the direct or indirect acquisition of such party's stock representing a 50% or greater interest in such party within the meaning of Code section 355(d)(4). (c) A party may take actions inconsistent with the covenants contained in Section 2.5(b), if prior to taking such action: (i) Such party obtains an opinion of counsel, which counsel and which opinion are acceptable to the other party in its reasonable discretion, to the effect that such actions should not affect the Federal income Tax treatment of the Separation and the Distribution -8-

to the parties and the shareholders of Equifax as set forth in any prior private letter ruling issued by the IRS, it being understood that each party agrees to cooperate with the other party and use its reasonable best efforts to assist the other party in attempting to obtain, as expeditiously as possible, any opinion requested by the other party described in this Section 2.5(c)(i); (ii) Equifax obtains a Supplemental Ruling to the effect that such actions will not affect the Federal income Tax treatment of the Separation and the Distribution to the parties and the shareholders of Equifax as set forth in any prior private letter ruling issued by the IRS; or (iii) Such party obtains the written consent of the other party. (d) Supplemental Rulings. (i) Equifax agrees that at the reasonable request of PSI, Equifax shall cooperate with PSI and use its reasonable best efforts to seek to obtain, as expeditiously as possible, a Supplemental Ruling or other guidance from a Tax Authority for the purpose of confirming (A) the continuing validity of any ruling (including another Supplemental Ruling) previously issued by the IRS or any other Tax Authority, or (B) compliance on the part of a member of the PSI Group with its obligations under this Section 2.5. Equifax shall be obligated to seek a Supplemental Ruling requested by PSI unless it reasonably believes that the relevant Tax Authority would not issue such a ruling. Further, in no event shall Equifax file a request for a Supplemental Ruling unless PSI represents that (a) it has read the request for the Supplemental Ruling and any materials, appendices and exhibits submitted or filed therewith (`Supplemental Ruling Documents") and (B) all information (other than information provided by an external expert) and representations, if any, relating to any member of the PSI Group contained in the Supplemental Ruling Documents are true, correct and complete in all material respects. PSI shall reimburse Equifax for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Equifax in obtaining a Supplemental Ruling requested by PSI. PSI hereby agrees that Equifax shall have sole and exclusive control over the process of obtaining a Supplemental Ruling, and that only Equifax shall apply for a Supplemental Ruling. PSI further agrees that it shall not seek any guidance from the IRS or any other Tax Authority concerning the Restructuring except as set forth in this Section 2.5(d). (ii) If Equifax determines that it will obtain a Supplemental Ruling or other guidance from a Tax Authority after the date of this Agreement: (A) Equifax shall keep PSI informed in a timely manner of all material actions taken or proposed to be taken in connection therewith; (B) Equifax shall (1) reasonably in advance of the submission of any such Supplemental Ruling Documents, provide PSI with a draft copy thereof, (2) reasonably consider PSI's comments on such draft copy, and (3) provide PSI with a final copy of the Supplemental Ruling Documents; and (C) Equifax shall provide PSI with notice reasonably in advance of, and PSI shall have the right to attend, any formally scheduled meetings with the Tax Authority (subject to the approval of the Tax Authority) that relate to such Supplemental Ruling. -9-

ARTICLE III REFUNDS OF TAXES Each party shall be entitled to retain or be paid all refunds of Tax received, whether in the form of payment, credit or otherwise, from any Tax Authority with respect to any Tax Returns filed or to be filed by such party in accordance with Article V of this Agreement, provided, however, PSI shall be entitled to retain or be paid all such refunds with respect to any Taxes to the extent such Taxes exclusively pertain to property or operations of the PSI Group. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article III to the contrary, Equifax shall be entitled to be paid and to retain, and PSI shall not be entitled to retain and shall be required to pay over to Equifax, any refunds of Tax received to the extent (i) Equifax indemnified PSI for the Taxes attributable to such refunds, or (ii) Equifax paid to the Tax Authority the Taxes attributable to such refunds and Equifax has not been indemnified by PSI. ARTICLE IV CARRYBACKS FROM SEPARATE RETURN YEARS 4.1 General. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, with the prior written consent of Equifax, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, the PSI Group may elect to carry back to any Taxable Period beginning before the Date of Distribution any Tax Item arising in any Taxable Period beginning after the Date of Distribution that the PSI Group may properly elect to carry back for Federal income Tax purposes or combined state Tax purposes to a Consolidated Return. With respect to any such carryback, Equifax agrees to file such claims for refund and other returns as may be required to claim the Tax refunds attributable to such carryback items and to pay promptly after receipt to PSI the cash amount of any refunds of Taxes, including the cash amount of any interest resulting from the utilization of such Tax Items, after taking into consideration any resulting increase or decrease in the Tax liability of any member of the Equifax Group. To the extent authorized by law, Equifax shall act as collection agent for the PSI Group with respect to any such refund. 4.2 Review and Expenses. The amount of any carryback by the PSI Group shall be reviewed and approved (on the basis of Tax information contained in PSI's Tax Return) by Equifax's certified public accountants as to the amount and validity of such carryback. PSI agrees to reimburse Equifax for its reasonable Expenses incurred in reviewing, filing and securing any PSI refund claims hereunder. 4.3 Subsequent Disallowance. In the event that any Tax attribute for which Equifax has made a payment pursuant to Section 4.1 is subsequently reduced or disallowed, PSI shall indemnify Equifax and hold it harmless from any Tax liability, including interest and penalties, incurred by reason of such reduction or disallowance. ARTICLE V TAX RETURN PREPARATION 5.1 Consolidated Returns. (a) Equifax shall prepare and timely file all Consolidated Returns. PSI shall have a reasonable period under the circumstances to review the 2000 and 2001 Consolidated -10-

Returns.

(b) PSI shall be responsible for preparing all information relating to the PSI Group necessary for Equifax to prepare and file the Consolidated Returns. Such information shall include the annual federal and state, if any, Tax work preparation package, necessary to enable Equifax to prepare the Consolidated Returns, completed and delivered to Equifax on or before the same deadline imposed upon other Equifax business units. Such information shall be used as the basis for Equifax's preparation of the Consolidated Returns. (c) Equifax shall not make any election or consent in connection with such Consolidated Returns without the consent of PSI, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, unless (i) such election or consent is not binding on any member of the PSI Group for any Tax Period; or (ii) PSI may revoke such elections without the consent of any Tax Authority. PSI and the PSI Group agree not to elect to be excluded from any such Consolidated Return.

Equifax shall prepare and timely file all other Tax Returns of any member of the Equifax Group or the PSI Group for all Tax Periods that are exclusively Pre-Distribution Periods and all Straddle Periods; provided however, that PSI shall prepare and timely file Tax Returns for any Pre-Distribution Period and any Straddle Period if such Tax Return pertains exclusively to property or operations of the PSI Group. Notwithstanding anything contained in the previous sentence, Equifax shall continue to file all Tax Returns of the members of the PSI Group for any Pre-Distribution Period if the Tax Return for such period is required to be filed on or prior to the Date of Distribution. PSI shall have a reasonable period under the circumstances to review each such Tax Return. 5.3 Post-Distribution Returns. PSI shall prepare and timely file all Tax Returns of any member of the PSI Group for Tax Periods that are exclusively Post-Distribution Periods, and Equifax shall prepare and timely file all Tax Returns of any member of the Equifax Group for Tax Periods that are exclusively Post-Distribution Periods. 5.4 Cooperation; Exchange of Information. Each party shall be responsible for the timely submission to the other party of information of which it has knowledge regarding any Tax Item which may properly be included in any Tax Return to be filed by the other party or any member of the other party's Affiliated Group, and shall provide any and all other information and documentation (including, but not by way of limitation, working papers and schedules) reasonably requested by the other party for use in connection with the preparation and filing of any Tax Returns. -11-

5.5 Payment of 2000 PSI Tax Liabilities; PSI Tax Benefits. (a) PSI shall pay to Equifax an amount equal to the aggregate amount of Taxes that would be owed by the PSI Group for the Tax Period consisting of the 2000 calendar year to the extent that such Taxes must be paid by Equifax as part of a Consolidated Return (the "2000 PSI Tax Liabilities"). Such amount shall be computed in a manner consistent with Section 2.4(a), and shall be reduced by any Tax Benefit of Equifax attributable to a PSI Tax Item.

(a) PSI shall pay to Equifax an amount equal to the estimated aggregate amount of Taxes that would be owed by the PSI Group for the Tax Period consisting of the 2001 calendar year to the extent that such Taxes must be paid by Equifax as part of a Consolidated Return (the "2001 PSI Estimated Tax Liabilities"). Such estimated amount shall be computed in a manner consistent with Section 2.4(a), and shall be reduced by any Tax Benefit of Equifax attributable to a PSI Tax Item. Notwithstanding the above, such estimated amount shall not include amounts related to separate returns filed on a combined or unitary basis, except to the extent consistent with the manner in which the Tax liabilities on such returns were allocated in prior years. Payment of the 2001 PSI Estimated Tax Liabilities shall be due on or before the tenth (10th) day after receipt by PSI of a notice including the applicable computations prepared by Equifax. (b) Upon the filing of the Consolidated Return for the Equifax Group's Tax Period ending December 31, 2001, the 2001 PSI Estimated Tax Liabilities as of the Distribution Date shall be restated and adjusted by Equifax based upon information then available. An adjusting payment shall be made by Equifax or PSI as shall be required by any restatement or adjustment of the 2001 PSI Estimated Tax Liabilities. Such payment shall be due on or before the tenth (10th) day after receipt by PSI of a notice including the applicable computations prepared by Equifax. (c) Equifax shall pay to PSI any Tax Benefit of Equifax attributable to a PSI Tax Item, to the extent that such Tax Benefit exceeds the amount of the 2001 PSI Tax Liabilities. Payment of such amount shall be due on or before the tenth (10th) day after receipt by PSI of a notice including the applicable computations prepared by Equifax in connection with the filing of Equifax's Federal Consolidated Return for the 2001 calendar year. -12-

ARTICLE VI TAX CONTROVERSIES AND RECORDS 6.1 Tax Controversies. (a) Each of PSI and Equifax shall have full responsibility and discretion in handling, settling, or contesting any Tax Controversy involving a Tax for which such party is liable pursuant to Article II of this Agreement. If a Tax Controversy proceeding involves both (a) one or more issues that would result in Taxes for which Equifax is liable under this Agreement and (b) one or more issues that would result in Taxes for which PSI is liable under this Agreement, then Equifax and PSI shall cooperate with each other to allow each party to conduct the Tax Controversy with respect to those issues that would result in Taxes for which such party is liable. Furthermore, Equifax may participate in any Tax Controversy with respect to Restructuring Taxes regardless of whether it has liability or indemnification obligations with respect to such Taxes under this Agreement. (b) The party responsible for any Tax Controversy shall use all reasonable efforts (taking into consideration all relevant facts and circumstances known to the party) to resist any deficiency assertions by any Tax Authority regardless of which party is ultimately responsible for any such Tax under this Agreement. (c) Equifax shall notify PSI promptly of any communication with the IRS or other Tax Authority relating in whole or in part to any PSI Issue. (i) PSI shall have 30 days after receipt of such notice from Equifax within which to object to the proposed adjustment relating to a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue). If PSI does not notify Equifax within such 30 day period that it objects to the proposed adjustment, then subsections 6.1(c)(ii) through 6.1(c)(v) below shall not apply, and Equifax shall have exclusive control over all stages of the Tax Controversy, including full authority to determine whether and in what manner to contest or compromise the issue, unless and until PSI so notifies Equifax. (ii) If PSI notifies Equifax that it objects to the proposed adjustment relating to a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue), then Equifax shall not thereafter consent to the adjustment or compromise of such PSI Issue without the consent of PSI, but shall cooperate with PSI to resolve the PSI Issue on a basis acceptable to PSI. Prior to the issuance of a notice of proposed adjustment or similar stage in the proceedings, however, Equifax shall be responsible for the conduct of the audit, including matters pertaining to such PSI Issue. Equifax shall notify PSI in advance of any conferences, meetings, and proceedings pertaining to the audit and, at its own expense, PSI shall have the right to attend all such proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is or includes such PSI Issue. (iii) Upon the issuance of a notice of proposed adjustment or similar stage in proceedings, PSI shall assume the conduct of all further proceedings, with counsel selected by it, at PSI's sole expense, insofar as the proceedings relate to a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue), and thereafter PSI and Equifax shall jointly be responsible for the conduct of proceedings to contest such PSI Issue. -13-

(iv) In the event that Equifax receives a notice of deficiency from the IRS, or a similar notice from any other Tax Authority, and such notice relates exclusively to one or more PSI Issues (none of which are Equifax Issues) and does not relate to an Equifax Issue then: (A) upon receiving a written request from PSI, given no later than a date reasonably necessary to permit preparation and timely filing of a petition in the United States Tax Court for redetermination of the deficiency, or a court of similar jurisdiction with respect to Taxes imposed by any other Tax Authority, Equifax shall timely file such petition (at PSI's sole expense); or (B) If (1) PSI does not request Equifax to file a petition for redetermination of the deficiency pursuant to subsection 6.1(g)(i) hereof, (2) PSI requests that Equifax file a claim for refund, and (3) PSI provides Equifax with sufficient funds to pay the deficiency relating to the PSI Issue, then Equifax (at PSI's sole expense) shall file a claim for refund thereof and, if the claim is denied, bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction seeking such refund. (C) In the event that a judgment of the United States Tax Court or other court of competent jurisdiction results in an adverse determination with respect to the PSI Issue, then PSI shall have the right to cause Equifax to appeal from such adverse determination at PSI's sole expense. (D) PSI and its representatives, at PSI's sole expense, shall be entitled to the extent permitted by law to participate in (1) all conferences, meetings, or proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue), and (2) all appearances before any court, the subject matter of which is a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue). The right to participate referred to in this subsection 6.1(c)(iv)(D) hereof shall include the submission and content of documentation, memoranda of fact and law and briefs, the conduct of oral arguments or presentations, the selection of witnesses, and the negotiation of stipulations of fact with respect to a PSI Issue (that is not an Equifax Issue). (v) If the proposed adjustment relating to a PSI Issue is also an Equifax Issue (or if the proposed adjustment relates solely to an Equifax Issue that is not a PSI Issue), then Equifax shall be fully responsible for the conduct of the Tax Controversy, including matters pertaining to any PSI Issue, but Equifax shall use reasonable efforts to involve PSI in the conduct of the Tax Controversy insofar as it relates to any PSI Issue. Equifax shall notify PSI in advance of any such proceedings and, at its own expense, PSI shall attend all conferences, meetings, or proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is or includes any PSI Issue. PSI shall use all reasonable efforts to assist Equifax in resisting any deficiency assertions by any Tax Authority relating to any such PSI Issue. (d) PSI shall notify Equifax promptly of any communication with the IRS or other Tax Authority relating in whole or in part to any Equifax Issue. -14-

(i) Equifax shall have 30 days after receipt of such notice from PSI within which to object to the proposed adjustment relating to a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue). If Equifax does not notify PSI within such 30 day period that it objects to the proposed adjustment, then subsections 6.1(d)(ii) through 6.1(d)(v) below shall not apply, and PSI shall have exclusive control over all stages of the Tax Controversy, including full authority to determine whether and in what manner to contest or compromise the issue, unless and until Equifax so notifies PSI. (ii) If Equifax notifies PSI that it objects to the proposed adjustment relating to a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue), then PSI shall not thereafter consent to the adjustment or compromise of such Equifax Issue without the consent of Equifax, but shall cooperate with Equifax to resolve the Equifax Issue on a basis acceptable to Equifax. Prior to the issuance of a notice of proposed adjustment or similar stage in the proceedings, however, PSI shall be responsible for the conduct of the audit, including matters pertaining to such Equifax Issue. PSI shall notify Equifax in advance of any conferences, meetings, and proceedings pertaining to the audit and, at its own expense, Equifax shall have the right to attend all such proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is or includes such Equifax Issue. (iii) Upon the issuance of a notice of proposed adjustment or similar stage in proceedings, Equifax shall assume the conduct of all further proceedings, with counsel selected by it, at Equifax's sole expense, insofar as the proceedings relate to a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue), and thereafter PSI and Equifax shall jointly be responsible for the conduct of proceedings to contest such Equifax Issue. (iv) In the event that PSI receives a notice of deficiency from the IRS, or a similar notice from any other Tax Authority, and such notice relates exclusively to one or more Equifax Issues (none of which are PSI Issues) and does not relate to an PSI Issue then: (A) upon receiving a written request from Equifax, given no later than a date reasonably necessary to permit preparation and timely filing of a petition in the United States Tax Court for redetermination of the deficiency, or a court of similar jurisdiction with respect to Taxes imposed by any other Tax Authority, PSI shall timely file such petition (at Equifax's sole expense); or (B) If (1) Equifax does not request PSI to file a petition for redetermination of the deficiency pursuant to subsection 6.1(g)(i) hereof, (2) Equifax requests that PSI file a claim for refund, and (3) Equifax provides PSI with sufficient funds to pay the deficiency relating to the Equifax Issue, then PSI (at Equifax's sole expense) shall file a claim for refund thereof and, if the claim is denied, bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction seeking such refund. (C) In the event that a judgment of the United States Tax Court or other court of competent jurisdiction results in an adverse determination with respect to the Equifax Issue, then Equifax shall have the right to cause PSI to appeal from such adverse determination at Equifax's sole expense. -15-

(D) Equifax and its representatives, at Equifax's sole expense, shall be entitled to the extent permitted by law to participate in (1) all conferences, meetings, or proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue), and (2) all appearances before any court, the subject matter of which is a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue). The right to participate referred to in this subsection 6.1(d)(iv)(D) hereof shall include the submission and content of documentation, memoranda of fact and law and briefs, the conduct of oral arguments or presentations, the selection of witnesses, and the negotiation of stipulations of fact with respect to a Equifax Issue (that is not an PSI Issue). (v) If the proposed adjustment relating to a Equifax Issue is also an PSI Issue (or if the proposed adjustment relates solely to an PSI Issue that is not an Equifax Issue), then PSI shall be fully responsible for the conduct of the Tax Controversy, including matters pertaining to any Equifax Issue, but PSI shall use reasonable efforts to involve Equifax in the conduct of the Tax Controversy insofar as it relates to any Equifax Issue. PSI shall notify Equifax in advance of any such proceedings and, at its own expense, Equifax shall attend all conferences, meetings, or proceedings with any Tax Authority, the subject matter of which is or includes any Equifax Issue. PSI shall use all reasonable efforts to assist Equifax in resisting any deficiency assertions by any Tax Authority relating to any such Equifax Issue. 6.2 Cooperation. (a) Equifax and PSI agree to afford full cooperation to one another and to their respective representatives, if any, in any Tax Controversy involving: (i) any Tax Return filed or required to be filed by or for any member of the Equifax Group or the PSI Group for any Pre-Distribution Period, or (ii) any item or issue affecting Equifax's or PSI's potential liability hereunder. (b) Such cooperation shall include, but not by way of limitation: (i) preparing responses to information requests by any Tax Authority; (ii) making available books, records and other documentation (including, but not by way of limitation, working papers and schedules) relevant to such proceeding, and systems support for documentation furnished in electronic form; (iii) making directors, officers, or employees available to appear in person for interview or for testimony; (iv) making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of materials provided hereunder; (v) executing powers of attorney, tax information authorizations and any other necessary or appropriate authorizations; -16-

(vi) executing agreements with the Tax Authority or other documents reasonably necessary or appropriate for the settlement or pursuit of the contest of such issue; and (vii) doing whatever is reasonable in the circumstances to assist the other party in proving that a transaction on or after the Distribution Date does not give rise to Additional Restructuring Taxes. 6.3 Record Retention. The parties, on behalf of themselves and the members of their respective Affiliated Groups, agree to retain all books, records, returns, schedules, documents and all material papers or relevant items of information for periods prior to the Date of Distribution for the later of (a) seven (7) years or (b) the full period of the applicable statute of limitations, including any extensions thereof. If, under legislation enacted after the date of this Agreement, the statute of limitations with respect to a transaction does not begin to run until the IRS or other Tax Authority is notified of the transaction, then the statute of limitations for purposes of subsection 6.3(b) shall also not begin to run until such notification is given.

Equifax and PSI shall give each other prompt notice of any payment that may be due under this Agreement. 7.5 Tax Items. Except to the extent already provided for in this Agreement, the amount of any indemnification payment required hereunder shall be reduced to take into account the Tax Benefit, if any, allowable to the indemnified party resulting from the event giving rise to such indemnification payment and shall be increased to take into account additional Taxes, if any, incurred by the indemnified party resulting from the receipt of such indemnification payment and any additional payment required by this section.

If the Pension Plan Spinoff Date does not occur Immediately after the Distribution Date, the benefits paid to Transferred Individuals under the PSI Pension Plan for periods prior to the Pension Plan Spinoff Date shall be reduced by benefits paid to them under the Equifax Pension Plan. No pension benefits with respect to such Transferred Individuals shall commence from the Equifax Pension Plan while a Transferred Individual is employed by the PSI Group. (b) Asset Allocations and Transfers (1) Determination of Asset Transfer Date and Allocation (A) It is expected that assets will be transferred from the Equifax Pension Trust to the PSI Pension Trust effective as of the date determined under this subparagraph (A) (the "Pension Plan Spinoff Date"). The asset transfer is scheduled to occur Immediately after the Distribution Date, provided that the assets of the Equifax Pension Plan on such date are at least 104% of its Plan Termination Liability on such date. If the assets of the Equifax Pension Plan are not at least 104% of its Plan Termination Liability on such date, either Equifax or PSI may elect not to proceed with the transfer as of the scheduled date. If the transfer of assets does not occur on the scheduled date, Equifax and PSI will mutually reschedule the transfer date; provided, however, such -------- ------- rescheduled date must occur (i) not later than December 31, 2001, and (ii) on a date when the assets of the Equifax Pension Plan are at least 104% of its Plan Termination Liability (or another percentage of such liability that is agreed to by Equifax and PSI). If the assets of the Equifax Pension Plan are not at least equal to the applicable minimum percentage of its Plan Termination Liability on such date, either Equifax or PSI may elect not to proceed with the transfer as of the rescheduled date. -14-

(B) If a Pension Plan Spinoff Date occurs in accordance with the conditions described in subparagraph (A) above, then effective as of the Pension Plan Spinoff Date and pursuant to the procedures described in this Section 3.02(b), Equifax shall transfer from the Equifax Pension Trust an amount of assets equal to the Plan Termination Liability with respect to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Pension Plan to the PSI Pension Trust. In addition, Equifax shall also transfer an amount of assets determined in the sole discretion of Equifax that is in addition to the amount of assets determined in the prior sentence; provided, however, Equifax shall not transfer such -------- additional amount of assets to the extent, determined as of immediately after the Pension Plan Spinoff Date, such transfer would cause (i) the Equifax Pension Plan to be funded at less than 101% of its Plan Termination Liability, or (ii) the PSI Pension Plan to be funded at more than 250% of its Termination Liability. (2) Transfer of Assets to PSI Pension Trusts Effective as soon as practicable after the Pension Plan Spinoff Date, Equifax shall cause to be transferred from the Equifax Pension Trust to the PSI Pension Trust an initial amount of assets in cash (the "Initial Asset Transfer"). The amount of the Initial Asset Transfer shall be not be less than Equifax's estimate, determined by Equifax in its sole discretion, of the cash required by the PSI Pension Plan to make payment of benefits and appropriate expenses from the PSI Pension Trust in accordance with the Plan from the time of the Initial Asset Transfer to the time of the Bulk Asset Transfer, described below. In the event PSI notifies Equifax that the Initial Asset Transfer provides insufficient cash for this purpose, or if Equifax decides to provide additional funds, Equifax will cause to be transferred other amounts of cash or marketable assets (a "Subsequent Asset Transfer"). As soon as practicable after the calculation of each Plan's interest in the Equifax Pension Trust, but in no event before Equifax (or its authorized representative) determines that the calculation and the data on which it is based are acceptably complete, accurate, and consistent, Equifax will cause the appropriate amount of assets to be transferred from the Equifax Pension Trust to the PSI Pension Trust (the "Bulk Asset Transfer"). The amount of assets to be transferred in the Bulk Asset Transfer shall be equal to the interests of the PSI Pension Plan determined pursuant to Section 3.02(b)(1), adjusted by Equifax as of the date of the Bulk Asset Transfer to the extent necessary to reflect a proportionate share of additional pension contributions, actual investment gains and losses experienced in the Equifax Pension Trust, benefit payments, expenses, the Initial Asset Transfer, Subsequent Asset Transfers, data corrections, enhancements, and computational refinements from immediately after the Pension Plan Spinoff Date through the date of the actual transfer of such assets. If circumstances permit and if agreed to by Equifax and PSI, the parties may perform the Bulk Asset Transfer at the same time as the Initial Asset Transfer or any Subsequent Asset Transfers. (3) Transfer of Specific Assets in Bulk Asset Transfer The specific assets to be transferred from the Equifax Pension Trust to the PSI Pension Trust in the Bulk Asset Transfer shall be made up of cash and marketable assets selected by Equifax consistent with the objective of enabling PSI to implement prospectively an investment program for the PSI Pension Trust, but in no event shall Equifax or the Equifax Pension Trust be required to incur unreasonable transaction costs in the process of transferring assets and subsequently re-balancing the investment portfolio held by the Equifax Pension Trust. -15-

Furthermore, Equifax shall not be required to transfer any specific asset or any portion of any specific fund or investment manager account, and Equifax shall not transfer the Venture Capital Assets, as defined in subsection (c) below, and any amount of PSI Common Stock that would place the PSI Pension Plan in violation of the employer stock acquisition limitations of ERISA section 407; provided, however, that Equifax shall transfer interests in group annuity - -------- ------- contracts held by the Equifax Pension Trust to the extent such group annuity contracts (in whole or in part, as the case may be) specifically cover the accrued pension benefits of Transferred Individuals. In transferring specific assets, Equifax makes no representation as to the appropriateness of the resulting asset allocation or investment performance resulting from the specific assets transferred. By accepting the assets transferred, PSI acknowledges that it and not Equifax is serving as the fiduciary for the PSI Pension Trust with respect to the determination and actual transfer of assets from the Equifax Pension Trust and that, acting as fiduciary for the PSI Pension Plan, PSI further acknowledges that it is able to change the asset allocation as it deems appropriate at any time. Once the assets have been transferred to and received by the PSI Pension Trust, such event shall fully and finally foreclose any issue or matter of any nature whatsoever by PSI, the PSI Pension Trust, the PSI Pension Plan, or any other trust(s) related to such Plan against Equifax, the Equifax Pension Trust, the Equifax Pension Plan, or any other trust(s) related to such Plan with respect to the condition, identity, or value of such assets and PSI shall fully indemnify Equifax, its employees, officers, directors, and the Equifax Pension Plan, the Equifax Pension Trust, and any trustees or fiduciaries thereof regarding any Liability or legal or regulatory issue of any nature with respect thereto. (c) Valuation of Venture Capital Assets For all purposes under this Article III, the assets of the Equifax Pension Trust that are invested in a portfolio of venture capital funds (collectively, the "Venture Capital Assets") shall be valued based upon the most recent quarter-end value reported to the Equifax Pension Plan by the venture capital funds, provided that Equifax determines that such valuation remains sufficiently current to be a permissible valuation for purposes of Code section 414(l). (d) Pension Plan Transition Period If the Pension Plan Spinoff Date does not occur Immediately after the Distribution Date, there shall be a transition period (the "Pension Plan Transition Period") during which Transferred Individuals shall be participants in both the Equifax Pension Plan and the PSI Pension Plan. The Pension Plan Transition Period shall begin Immediately after the Distribution Date and shall end effective as of the Pension Plan Spinoff Date. During the Pension Plan Transition Period, Equifax shall retain all assets and Liabilities with respect to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Pension Plan and the PSI Pension Plan shall provide equivalent pension benefits (taking into account service and compensation with Equifax) with an offset for any benefits provided under the Equifax Pension Plan. (e) Negotiation if There Is No Pension Plan Spinoff Date In the event that Equifax is unable to select a Pension Plan Spinoff Date under the conditions described in Section 3.02(b)(1), Equifax and PSI shall enter negotiations as soon as practicable after January 1, 2002 on how to structure the Equifax Pension Plan and the PSI -16-

Pension Plan with respect to Transferred Individuals. During the period that negotiations are ongoing and during any period that Equifax and PSI are unable to reach an agreement that is mutually satisfactory to Equifax and PSI respecting such matters, the Pension Plan Transition Period shall be continued as provided in Section 3.02(d). 3.03 Governmental Compliance Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in the event that at any time any Governmental Authority challenges or seeks to prevent the transfer of assets and Liabilities provided for in Section 3.02, (i) Equifax may, in its sole discretion, retain all assets and Liabilities with respect to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Pension Plan, and require PSI to provide equivalent benefits under plans maintained by it with an offset for any benefits to be provided under the Equifax Pension Plan, or (ii) reach such other agreement as may be mutually satisfactory to Equifax and PSI respecting the matters covered by this Article III. If Equifax, in its sole discretion, retains any Liability of any Transferred Individual under the Equifax Pension Plan, PSI shall fully reimburse Equifax for the full cash costs of, including any administrative expenses relating to, any Liabilities that it has not otherwise agreed to assume that result from the intervention of the Governmental Authority. -17-

Article IV Defined Contribution Plans 4.01 Savings Plan (a) Savings Plan Trust Prior to the Distribution Date, PSI shall establish, or cause to be established, a trust qualified under Code (S) 401(a), which shall be exempt from taxation under Code (S) 501(a)(1), and form part of the PSI Savings Plan. PSI shall, prior to the end of the remedial amendment period for the PSI Savings Plan, apply for a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service that shall provide that the PSI Savings Plan and its related trust satisfy the requirements for qualification under Code sections 401(a) and 501(a), and PSI shall take all actions necessary or appropriate to obtain such letter. (b) Savings Plan Participation Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, the PSI Savings Plan shall assume and be solely responsible for all ongoing rights of Transferred Individuals for future participation (including the right to make contributions through payroll deductions) in the PSI Savings Plan. PSI shall cause the PSI Savings Plan to recognize and maintain all contribution and investment elections made by Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Savings Plan as such elections were last in effect during the period immediately prior to the Distribution Date and shall apply such elections under the PSI Savings Plan for the remainder of the period or periods for which such elections are by their terms applicable (subject in all cases to applicable election change rights of the Transferred Individuals). (c) Assumption of Liabilities and Transfer of Assets Effective on a date selected by Equifax (the "Savings Plan Transfer Date") and except as provided in the last sentence of this Section: (i) the PSI Savings Plan shall assume and be solely responsible for all Liabilities to or relating to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Savings Plan; and (ii) Equifax shall cause the accounts of the Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Savings Plan which are held by its related trust as of the Savings Plan Transfer Date to be transferred to the PSI Savings Plan and its related trust, and PSI shall cause such transferred accounts to be accepted by such plan and trust. Effective no later than the Savings Plan Transfer Date, PSI shall use its reasonable best efforts to enter into such agreements to accomplish such assumptions and transfers and the maintenance of the necessary participant records. As soon as practicable after the Savings Plan Transfer Date, assets related to the accounts of all Transferred Individuals shall be transferred from the Equifax Savings Plan to the PSI Savings Plan in cash or in kind, at Equifax's discretion, and, to the extent practicable, shall be invested in investment options in the PSI Savings Plan which are comparable to the investment options in which such accounts were invested immediately before the Savings Plan Transfer Date. Until such transfer (but subject to reasonable blackout requirements and subject to subsection (d) below), Transferred Individuals shall be able to exercise customary investment discretion over their accounts in the Equifax Savings Plan. No benefits with respect to a Transferred Individual from the Equifax Savings Plan shall be paid while he or she is employed by the PSI Group after the Savings Plan Transfer Date. -18-

(d) Specific Stock Funds in the Equifax and PSI Savings Plan Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, a PSI Common Stock fund shall be added as an investment option to the Equifax Savings Plan, and the PSI Savings Plan shall provide for both an Equifax Common Stock fund and a PSI Common Stock fund as investment options. The PSI Common Stock fund in the Equifax Savings Plan and the Equifax Common Stock fund in the PSI Savings Plan are each referred to as a "Non-Employer Stock Fund" with respect to the applicable Plan. Unless Equifax and PSI agree otherwise, each Non-Employer Stock Fund shall be maintained under the respective Plan through December 31, 2002. After such date, Equifax and PSI agree to cooperate with each other with respect to the disposition of the stock when either party decides to liquidate or otherwise terminate the Non-Employer Stock Fund in its Savings Plan. In the absence of any agreement regarding such liquidation, the liquidation of the Non- Employer Stock Fund shall be made in a ratable manner over a period of six months. Furthermore, at any time that Equifax or PSI decides to sell or otherwise dispose of any amount of shares in their Non-Employer Stock Fund, the selling party shall follow the procedures of Section 4.02 (except to the extent waived in writing by an authorized representative of the other party). The Equifax Savings Plan and the PSI Savings Plan shall each provide that, after the Distribution Date, no new contributions may be invested in, and no amounts may be transferred from other investment options to the Non-Employer Stock Fund under the respective Plan. The Equifax Savings Plan shall provide that no earnings or dividends under its Non-Employer Stock Fund may be reinvested in PSI Common Stock and the PSI Savings Plan shall provide that no earnings or dividends under its Non-Employer Stock Fund may be reinvested in Equifax Common Stock; provided, however, this requirement shall not prohibit such earnings and ----------------- dividends from remaining in the applicable Non-Employer Stock Fund as cash or as an amount that is invested in any non-stock investment in such fund. (e) Miscellaneous Funds In the event that Equifax determines that it is not feasible or appropriate to transfer in-kind the assets of a particular investment fund from the Equifax Savings Plan to the PSI Savings Plan, then the value of the assets in the affected investment, as of the close of business on the Savings Plan Transfer Date (plus actual earnings or losses attributable to such amount from the Savings Plan Transfer Date to the date the assets are actually transferred) shall be transferred in cash to the PSI Savings Plan and PSI shall invest such cash in its Savings Plan and trust in the same manner and proportion as it was invested in the Equifax Savings Plan or otherwise at the direction of the affected participant. 4.02 Non-Employer Stock Fund Procedures (a) Application of Procedures Whenever Equifax or PSI (the "Selling Party") desires to sell or otherwise dispose of any or all of the shares of stock of the other party (the "Notice Party") in their respective Non-Employer Stock Funds, the Selling Party shall follow the procedures for selling or otherwise disposing of such stock, and the Notice Patty shall be entitled to advance notice and a right of first refusal to purchase such stock all as provided in this section. -19-

(b) Right of First Refusal and Notice Procedures When the Selling Party desires to sell or otherwise dispose of any or all of the shares of stock in their Non-Employer Stock Fund, the Selling Party shall first offer such stock for sale to the Notice Party by delivering to the Notice Party's Chief Financial Officer, or his or her designee, a written offer of such shares of stock for sale to the Notice Party. The offer for sale to the Notice Party shall designate the total number of shares of stock desired to be sold (the "Offered Shares") and any special terms of sale, if the Offered Shares will not be sold on the market. (c) Procedures After Notice is Given The Notice Party shall within 30 days after receipt of notice advise the Selling Party in writing whether it desires to purchase the Offered Shares, and the terms upon which such purchase would be consummated. Failure to so notify the Selling Party shall be deemed a rejection of the offer, and the Selling Party after the close of the 30-day period may sell or otherwise dispose of the Offered Shares in its sole discretion. In the event that the Notice Party advises the Selling Party of its acceptance of the offer for sale, such acceptance shall specify a purchase date (the "Purchase Date") that is not less than ten nor more than 30 days after the date of such acceptance, and on which the New York Stock Exchange is scheduled to be open for trading. The purchase price paid for the Offered Shares and the terms and conditions of the payment shall be negotiated and agreed upon between the Selling Party and the Notice Party before the Purchase Date. If the Selling Party and the Notice Party have not agreed upon the price and the terms and conditions for payment by the Purchase Date, the Notice Party shall have the right to purchase all of the Offered Shares for cash immediately following the close of the New York Stock Exchange on the Purchase Date, at a price per Offered Share equal to its closing price on the New York Stock Exchange (but with any adjustment for the size of the block that is necessary, in the judgment of the valuation expert designated by Equifax and PSI for this purpose, to accomplish the sale at fair market value). If the Notice Party does not purchase and pay for all of the Offered Shares on the Purchase Date, it shall be deemed to have completely rejected the offer and all of the Offered Shares may be sold or otherwise disposed of by the Selling Party in its sole discretion. -20-

Article V Health and Welfare Plans 5.01 Assumption of Health and Welfare Plan Liabilities (a) Assumption by PSI Immediately after the Distribution Date, all Liabilities for or relating to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and all Liabilities relating to the Equifax Severance Pay Plan specified in Section 5.11(b), shall cease to be Liabilities of Equifax or the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and shall be assumed by PSI and the corresponding PSI Health and Welfare Plans. Thus, PSI and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans shall be responsible for all Liabilities that pertain to Transferred Individuals regardless of when incurred, including all reported claims that are unpaid, all incurred but not reported claims as of the Close of the Distribution Date, and all claims incurred after the Close of the Distribution Date that pertain to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans. PSI shall be required to make all payments due or payable to Transferred Individuals under the appropriate PSI Health and Welfare Plans for the period beginning Immediately after the Distribution Date, including all reported claims that are unpaid and all incurred but not reported claims as of the Close of the Distribution Date. All treatments which have been pre-certified for or are being provided on an on-going basis to a Transferred Individual under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans as of the Close of the Distribution Date shall continue to be provided without interruption under the appropriate PSI Health and Welfare Plan until such treatment is concluded or discontinued pursuant to applicable plan rules and limitations, and PSI and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans shall be responsible for all Liabilities relating to, arising out of, or resulting from such pre-certified or on-going treatments as of the Close of the Distribution Date. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing in this Section 5.01, neither PSI nor a PSI Health and Welfare Plan shall assume any Liability with respect to: (i) a claim incurred on or prior to the Close of the Distribution Date for which Equifax or an Equifax Health and Welfare Plan has insurance coverage, and (ii) benefit claims for which Equifax is responsible under Section 5.07. Furthermore, except to the extent related to claims referenced in the prior sentence, Equifax shall pay to PSI any prescription drug rebates received by Equifax under the Equifax Major Medical Plan relating to claims incurred for Transferred Individuals in respect of periods beginning Immediately after the Distribution Date. (b) Certain Audit Procedures with Respect to Health and Welfare Plans At periodic intervals beginning Immediately after the Distribution Date, Equifax and PSI shall examine their respective payments and receipts for health and welfare coverages to ascertain whether Equifax has mistakenly made or received payments for coverages with respect to Transferred Individuals and whether PSI has mistakenly made or received payments for coverages with respect to participants and beneficiaries in the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans (other than Transferred Individuals). If any such mistaken payments have been made or received by Equifax or PSI, such mistaken payments and receipts shall first be netted against each other by Equifax and PSI and thereafter such net payments or net receipts shall be further netted against the other party's net payments or net receipts. The party with the remaining amount of mistaken payments shall transfer such amount in cash to the other party at such time or times as agreed upon by Equifax and PSI, but not less than quarterly. Furthermore, at periodic intervals -21-

beginning Immediately after the Distribution Date, Equifax and PSI shall examine the payment of benefits and claims, and reimbursements for expenses, by their respective Health and Welfare Plans to ascertain whether any Equifax Health and Welfare Plan has mistakenly paid claims or benefits, or reimbursed expenses, with respect to Transferred Individuals and whether any PSI Health and Welfare Plan has mistakenly paid claims or benefits, or reimbursed expenses, with respect to participants and beneficiaries in the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans (other than Transferred Individuals). If any such mistaken payments or reimbursements have been made by any Equifax or PSI Health and Welfare Plan, such mistaken payments and reimbursements shall be netted against the other corresponding Health and Welfare Plan's mistaken payments and reimbursements. The Health and Welfare Plan with the remaining amount of mistaken payments and reimbursements shall transfer such amount in cash to the other party's corresponding Health and Welfare Plan at such time or times as agreed upon by Equifax and PSI, but not less than quarterly. 5.02 Establishment of PSI VEBA On or before the Distribution Date, PSI shall establish, or cause to be established, the PSI VEBA, which shall constitute a voluntary employees' beneficiary association under Code (S) 501(c)(9) that is exempt from the imposition of federal income tax under Code (S) 501(a). The PSI VEBA shall be established to provide funding for benefits that are permissible under Code (S) 501(c)(9), and in particular those benefits which Equifax funded through the VEBA as of the Distribution Date. Nothing in this Section 5.02 shall restrict the right of PSI to discontinue providing any benefit or to discontinue funding any benefit through the VEBA after the Distribution Date. 5.03 VEBA Asset Transfers This section shall govern the transfer of assets from the Equifax VEBA to the payment Services VEBA. Not later than as soon as practicable after the Distribution Date, Equifax will transfer assets from the Equifax VEBA to the PSI VEBA in an amount at least equal to the incurred but unpaid claims for which the PSI VEBA is liable as of the Close of the Distribution Date. If the Equifax VEBA contains assets in excess of the amount necessary both to make this transfer and to establish a reserve for the incurred but unpaid claims for which the Equifax VEBA is liable Immediately after the Distribution Date, Equifax will transfer to the PSI VEBA a portion of this excess, determined in its discretion. For this purpose, the Equifax VEBA's Liabilities will be determined by Equifax in accordance with the procedure it uses, as of the Close of Distribution Date, to predict outstanding VEBA Liabilities on an ongoing basis. 5.04 Contributions to, Investments of, and Distributions from VEBAs Equifax shall have sole authority to direct the trustee of the Equifax VEBA, as to the timing and manner of any contributions to the Equifax VEBA, the investment of any trust assets, and the distributions and/or transfers of trust assets, in accordance with applicable law to Equifax, PSI, any Participating Company in the trust, any paying agent, any successor trustee, or any other Person. PSI shall have sole authority to direct the trustee of the PSI VEBA, as to the timing and manner of any contributions to the PSI VEBA, the investment of any trust assets, and the distributions and/or transfers of trust assets, in accordance with applicable law to PSI, -22-

Equifax, any Participating Company in the trust, any paying agent, any successor trustee, or any other Person. 5.05 Vendor Contracts (a) ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, and Letters of Understanding (1) Before the Distribution Date, Equifax shall, in its sole discretion, take such steps as are necessary under each ASO Contract, Group Insurance Policy, HMO Agreement, letter of understanding, and arrangement in existence as of the date of this Agreement to permit PSI to participate in the terms and conditions of such ASO Contract, Group Insurance Policy, HMO Agreement, letter of understanding, or arrangement from Immediately after the Distribution Date through December 31, 2002. Alternatively, Equifax shall take such steps as are necessary to arrange for an ASO Contract, Group Insurance Policy, HMO Agreement, letter of understanding, or arrangement covering PSI that mirrors substantively that covering Equifax. This mirror arrangement shall apply for all or a portion of such period, as necessary under the circumstances. Equifax, in its sole discretion, may cause one or more of its ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, letters of understanding, and arrangements into which Equifax enters after the date of this Agreement to allow PSI to participate in the terms and conditions thereof. Nothing contained in this Section 5.05(a) shall preclude Equifax from choosing to enter into ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, letters of understandings, or other arrangements with new or different vendors. Furthermore, nothing contained in this paragraph (1) shall require Equifax to use more than its reasonable best efforts in complying with the provisions of the first and second sentence of this paragraph (1). (2) Equifax shall have the right to determine, and shall promptly notify PSI of, the manner in which PSI's participation in the terms and conditions of ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, letters of understanding and arrangements as set forth above shall be effectuated; provided, however, Equifax shall use its best efforts to accommodate any - ----------------- reasonable needs communicated to Equifax by PSI that relate thereto. Such terms and conditions shall include the financial and termination provisions, performance standards, methodologies, auditing policies, quality measures, reporting requirements, and target claims. PSI hereby authorizes Equifax to act on its behalf to extend to PSI the terms and conditions of the ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, and letters of understanding and arrangements. PSI shall fully cooperate with Equifax in such efforts, and, for periods through December 31, 2002, PSI shall not perform any act or fail to take any action that would prejudice Equifax's efforts and financial arrangements under the Health and Welfare Plans (other than taking reasonable steps to enter into replacement ASO Contracts, Group Insurance Policies, HMO Agreements, and letters of understanding and arrangements for periods after December 31, 2002, which steps shall not commence publicly prior to January 1, 2002). (b) Payment and Effect of Change in Rates Equifax and PSI shall use their reasonable best efforts to cause each of the insurance companies, HMOs, paid provider organizations and third-party administrators providing services and benefits under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans to -23-

maintain the premium and/or administrative rates based on the aggregate number of participants in the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans, from the Close of the Distribution Date through December 31, 2001, separately rated or adjusted for the demographics, experience or other relevant factors related to the covered participants of Equifax and PSI, respectively. To the extent they are not successful in such efforts, Equifax and PSI shall each bear the revised premium or administrative rates for health and welfare benefits attributable to the individuals covered by their respective Health and Welfare Plans. The assistance that Equifax shall provide PSI pursuant to this subsection (b) shall be provided subject to the terms and conditions of the Transition Support Agreement. 5.06 Equifax Short-Term Disability Plan Any final determination made or settlements entered into by Equifax with respect to claims incurred under the Equifax Short Term Disability Plan by Transferred Individuals prior to the Distribution Date shall be final and binding. Equifax shall transfer to PSI, effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, and PSI shall assume responsibility for (i) administering all claims incurred by Transferred Individuals before the Close of the Distribution Date that are administered by Equifax as of the Close of the Distribution Date, and (ii) all Liabilities under the Equifax Short Term Disability Plan to Transferred Individuals as of the Close of the Distribution Date, in the same manner, and using the same methods and procedures, as Equifax used in determining and paying such claims. Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall have sole discretionary authority to make any necessary determinations with respect to such claims, including entering into settlements with respect to such claims, and shall be solely responsible for any costs, Liabilities or related expenses of any nature whatsoever related to such claims, payments or obligations. 5.07 Retiree Health and Life Insurance Benefits (a) Establishment of PSI Plan Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall adopt or cause to be adopted a PSI Plan or Plans that provide medical and life benefits to retirees. As of Immediately after the Distribution Date, the retiree health and life benefits under such plan or plans shall be substantially identical to the retiree health and life benefits that would have been provided under the Equifax Plan or Plans to similarly situated retirees immediately prior to the Close of the Distribution Date. Thereafter, nothing in this Agreement shall restrict the right of PSI to amend or terminate benefits for retirees. In addition, nothing in this Agreement shall restrict the right of Equifax to amend or terminate, at any time, benefits for retirees. (b) Equifax Retiree Health and Life Benefits In the case of any former employee of the Equifax Group described in Section 1.01(vv)(2)(B)(i) or (ii), Equifax will retain the Liability related to such individual's retiree health and life benefits. In addition, any Transferred Individual who (i) is eligible for retirement under the Equifax Pension Plan as of the Close of Distribution Date or (ii) becomes eligible for retirement from PSI by December 31, 2002 (under the terms of the PSI Pension Plan in effect Immediately after the Distribution Date) shall be eligible for retiree health and life benefits from Equifax. -24-

5.08 COBRA and HIPAA Effectively Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI or a member of the PSI Group shall be responsible for administering compliance and providing coverage in accordance with the health care continuation coverage requirements for "group health plans" under Title X of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended ("COBRA"), and the portability requirements (including the requirements for issuance of certificates of creditable coverage) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 with respect to all Transferred Individuals and other employees and former employees of PSI or a member of the PSI Group and any beneficiaries and dependents thereof who experience a COBRA qualifying event or loss of coverage under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans after the Close of the Distribution Date. Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI or a member of the PSI Group shall be responsible for filing all necessary employee change notices with respect to these persons identified in the previous sentence in accordance with applicable law. 5.09 Leave of Absence Programs Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI or a member of the PSI Group shall assume sole responsibility for the administration and compliance of all leaves of absences and related programs (including compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended) affecting Transferred Individuals. 5.10 Post-Distribution Transitional Arrangements (a) Continuance of Elections, Co-Payments, and Maximum Benefits (1) PSI shall cause the PSI Health and Welfare Plans to recognize and maintain all coverage and contribution elections made by Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans, as such elections were last in effect during the period immediately prior to the Distribution Date, and shall apply such elections under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans for the remainder of the period or periods for which such elections are by their terms applicable (subject to applicable election change rights). Equifax shall cause the claims administrator for the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans to transfer to the claims administrator for the PSI Health and Welfare Plan all data necessary to maintain such coverage and elections. (2) PSI shall cause the PSI Health and Welfare Plans to recognize and give credit for (A) all amounts applied to deductibles, out-of-pocket maximums, and other applicable benefit coverage limits with respect to such expenses which have been incurred by Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans for the remainder of the benefit limit year in which the Distribution occurs, and (B) all benefits paid to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans, during and prior to the benefit limit year in which the Distribution occurs, for purposes of determining when such persons have reached their maximum benefits under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans. (3) PSI shall recognize and cover under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans all eligible employee populations covered by the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans (pertaining to Transferred Individuals) as of the Close of the Distribution Date (determined under the applicable -25-

Plan documents), including all categories of part-time employees (which are fully or partially eligible for employer contributions). (4) PSI shall (A) provide coverage to Transferred Individuals under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans without the need to undergo a physical examination or otherwise provide evidence of insurability, and (B) recognize and maintain all irrevocable assignments and elections made by Transferred Individuals in connection with their life insurance coverage under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and any predecessor plans. (b) Administration (1) Coordination of Benefits for Spouses and Dependents Effective as of the earlier of the first January 1 or the first applicable change in status (as defined under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans) that occurs after the Distribution Date, PSI shall cause the PSI Health and Welfare Plans to permit eligible Transferred Individuals to cover their lawful spouses as dependents if such lawful spouses are active or retired Equifax employees (but were not otherwise covered as a dependent under the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans or other Equifax Plans due to their previous status as both employee and dependent of an Equifax employee). As of the earlier of the first January 1 or the first applicable status change (as defined under the PSI Health and Welfare Plans) that occurs Immediately after the Distribution Date, Equifax shall cause the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans to permit eligible Equifax employees to cover their lawful spouses as dependents if such lawful spouses are active or retired PSI employees. All benefits provided under any such Health and Welfare Plans to a lawful spouse or dependent of the other company's employees shall be coordinated pursuant to the terms and conditions of the applicable Equifax and PSI Plans. (2) Health Care Financing Administration Data Match Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall assume all Liabilities relating to, arising out of or resulting from claims verified by Equifax or PSI under the Health Care Financing Administration data match reports that relate to Transferred Individuals. PSI and Equifax shall share all information necessary to verify Health Care Financing Administration data match reports regarding Transferred Individuals. PSI shall not change any employee identification numbers assigned by Equifax without notifying Equifax of the change and the new Employee Identification Number. (c) Equifax Reimbursement Plans To the extent any Transferred Individual contributed to an account under the Equifax Reimbursement Plans during the calendar year that includes the Distribution Date, effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall recognize any such Transferred Individual's account balance, determined as of the Close of the Distribution Date, and PSI shall thereafter be solely responsible for making any and all payments relative to such account balance of the Transferred Individual for all claims during such calendar year under the applicable PSI Reimbursement Plan. As soon as practicable after the Distribution Date, Equifax shall calculate as of the Close of the Distribution Date the aggregate net balance in the accounts of Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Reimbursement Plans, expressed relative to the contributions -26-

received from such Transferred Individuals. If the contributions received from a Transferred Individual exceed the reimbursements made to or on behalf of such Transferred Individual, the Transferred Individual shall be deemed to have a positive account balance. In turn, if the contributions received from a Transferred Individual are less than the reimbursements made to or on behalf of such Transferred Individual, the Transferred Individual shall be deemed to have a negative account balance. If the aggregate net balance in the accounts of all such Transferred Participants is a positive number, then Equifax shall pay this amount in cash to PSI as soon as practicable after the Distribution Date, and if the aggregate net balance in the accounts of all such Transferred Participants is a negative number, then PSI shall pay this amount in cash to Equifax as soon as practicable after the Distribution Date. 5.11 Severance Pay Plan (a) Transferred Individuals Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall be responsible for all Liabilities relating to the Equifax Severance Pay Plan and all other severance programs and obligations, both written and unwritten, that may pertain to Transferred Individuals. Furthermore, PSI shall be solely responsible for all Liabilities for Transferred Individuals in connection with each Individual Agreement. As of the date of this Agreement, Equifax has, to its best knowledge, provided PSI with a copy of each Individual Agreement. (b) Additional Liability Assumed by PSI Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall also be responsible for all Liabilities relating to the Equifax Severance Pay Plan and all other severance programs and obligations (including Individual Agreements), both written and unwritten, that may pertain to any individual who, as of the Close of the Distribution Date, is receiving benefits under the Equifax Severance Pay Plan or any other severance program, obligation or agreement (including Individual Agreements) with Equifax and whose most recent active employment was with a member of the PSI Group or an entity or affiliate related to the PSI Business. Any final determination made or settlements entered into by Equifax with respect to the Equifax Severance Pay Plan and all other severance programs and obligations relating to individuals described in this subsection (b) prior to the Distribution Date shall be final and binding. Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall have sole discretionary authority to make any necessary determinations with respect to the payment of severance benefits, including entering into settlements with respect to such benefits, and shall be solely responsible for any costs, Liabilities or related expenses of any nature whatsoever related thereto. 5.12 Application of Article V to the PSI Group Any reference in this Article V to "PSI" shall include a reference to another member of the PSI Group when and to the extent PSI has caused the other member of the PSI Group to (a) become a party to an ASO Contract, Group Insurance Policy, HMO Agreement, letter of understanding or arrangement associated with a PSI Health and Welfare Plan, (b) become a self-insured entity for the purposes of one or more PSI Health and Welfare Plans, (c) assume all or a portion of the Liabilities or the administrative responsibilities with respect to benefits which -27-

arose before the Close of the Distribution Date under a Equifax Health and Welfare Plan and which were expressly assumed by PSI pursuant to this Agreement, or (d) take any other action, extend any coverage, assume any other Liability or fulfill any other responsibility that PSI would otherwise be required to take under the terms of this Article V, unless it is clear from the context that the particular reference is not intended to include another member of the PSI Group. In all such instances in which a reference in this Article V to "PSI" includes a reference to another member of the PSI Group, PSI shall be responsible to Equifax for ensuring that the other member of the PSI Group complies with the applicable terms of this Agreement and that the Transferred Individuals employed by such member of the PSI Group shall have the same rights and entitlements to benefits under the applicable PSI Health and Welfare Plans that the Transferred Individual would have had, if he or she had instead been employed by PSI. -28-

Article VI Executive Programs 6.01 Assumption of Obligations Consistent with the principles set forth in Article II and except as otherwise provided herein, effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, the PSI Group shall assume and be solely responsible for all Liabilities to or relating to Transferred Individuals under all Equifax Executive Programs. PSI shall be solely responsible for all such Liabilities, notwithstanding any failure by PSI to complete its obligations under this Article. 6.02 Short-Term Incentive Awards With respect to short-term incentive Awards that would otherwise be payable under an Equifax Plan to Transferred Individuals and that are based in whole or in part on the performance of Equifax for the 2001 performance year ("Equifax- Based Awards"), effective immediately prior to the Distribution a determination shall be made by Equifax of the extent to which the Equifax-Based Awards have been earned for the 2001 performance year as of such date and no further amounts shall be earned by Transferred Individuals after such date. The amounts earned (if any) under the Equifax-Based Awards as of the Close of the Distribution Date shall be payable to Transferred Individuals after December 31, 2001 in accordance with the usual terms of the Equifax Plan; provided, that the Transferred Individual must be employed by PSI on December 31, 2001. With respect to short-term incentive Awards that would otherwise be payable under an Equifax Plan to Transferred Individuals whose Award is based solely on the performance of the PSI Business for the 2001 performance year, such Awards shall be paid by PSI in accordance with the terms of the Equifax Plan under which they were granted. PSI shall be solely responsible for paying all Awards pursuant to this section and shall pay such Awards in cash or options to acquire PSI Common Stock as elected by the Transferred Individual. Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall make new short-term incentive Awards under a Plan established pursuant to Section 2.03 for Transferred Individuals who have Equifax-Based Awards for the period beginning Immediately after the Distribution Date through December 31, 2001. PSI shall establish Award levels, performance criteria and payment terms for such Awards which shall be consistent with the past practices of Equifax with respect to such Awards. PSI shall be solely responsible for paying all such Awards. 6.03 Long-Term Incentive Plan (a) Plan 19 (1999-2001) Equifax will take the actions required, including any necessary plan amendment, to provide that all Transferred Individuals who are participants in Plan 19 (1999-2001) of the Equifax Inc. Performance Share Plan for Officers on the Distribution Date shall be treated as if their employment with PSI counted as employment by Equifax pursuant to the provisions of such Plan. The effect of this treatment shall be that each such Transferred Individual shall receive the payment he or she would have been ultimately entitled to receive under "Plan 19" of said Plan at the expiration of the performance period of the outstanding Awards, provided the Transferred Individual remains employed by PSI through December 31, 2001 and the other terms and -29-

conditions of the Performance Share Plan are satisfied. The payments shall be made in cash and shares of Equifax stock, in accordance with the terms of the Performance Share Plan at the conclusion of the Plan 19 performance period. Equifax shall be solely responsible for the payments of all amounts pursuant to this subsection (a). The Equifax Compensation Committee shall also revise the performance goals for Plan 19, for awards previously granted but not yet earned, to reflect the Distribution and a consequent change in certain anticipated measuring techniques. (b) Plan 20 (2000-2002) and 2001 Awards The outstanding Awards to Transferred Individuals under Plan 20 (2000-2002) of the Plan shall be replaced by Awards to such Transferred Individuals under the PSI Key Management Long-Term Incentive Plan for a performance period ending on December 31, 2002. The Award levels and performance criteria for the Awards shall be designed to allow the Transferred Individuals to earn amounts similar to what they could have received under Plan 20.

(a) Stock Options Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, each Award or grant consisting of an option, regardless of the date of the grant, under an Equifax Stock Incentive Plan that is outstanding as of the Close of the Distribution Date for all Transferred Individuals shall be converted to options for PSI Common Stock with the same material terms and conditions under the PSI Stock Incentive Plan, and shall be transferred to the recordkeeper of the PSI Stock Incentive Plan. As soon as practicable after the Distribution Date, the number of options and the exercise price for such options converted to options for PSI Common Stock shall be determined in accordance with the Conversion Formula. Such converted PSI stock option grants shall continue to vest and become exercisable under the PSI Stock Incentive Plan in accordance with the terms of the original grant under the Equifax Stock Incentive Plan.

The Transferred Individuals' termination of employment with the Equifax Group as a result of the Distribution shall not constitute a termination of employment for purposes of the PSI Plan. Nothing herein shall restrict Equifax's or PSI's rights to amend or terminate their respective Plans in the future. 6.06 Executive Life and Supplemental Retirement Benefit Plan (a) Plan Agreements Equifax and PSI shall take all necessary or appropriate actions to assign to PSI, Equifax's right, title and interest in and to any and all agreements or documents that relate to Transferred Individuals under the Equifax Executive Life Plan, including the split-dollar life insurance agreements and the collateral assignments, effective Immediately after the Distribution Date.

In addition, Transferred Individuals may elect to convert their Equifax restricted stock into shares of PSI Common Stock in accordance with the Conversion Formula. 6.10 Waiver of Dividend Relating to Certain Trusts Prior to the Close of the Distribution Date, Equifax shall cause the appropriate parties responsible for the investment of the assets of the Executive Life Trust, the Equifax Stock Benefits Trust and all other rabbi trusts established by Equifax to waive their receipt of the dividend of PSI Common Stock to be received as a result of the Distribution. 6.11 Automobile Program As of the Close of the Distribution Date, PSI shall assume all of Equifax's Liabilities and obligations with respect to the motor vehicles leased by Equifax for Transferred Individuals pursuant to lease agreements under any Equifax Executive automobile program. -32-

Article VII General 7.01 Payment of and Accounting Treatment for Expenses and Balance Sheet Amounts (a) Expenses All expenses (and the accounting treatment related thereto) through the Close of the Distribution Date regarding matters addressed herein shall be handled and administered by Equifax and PSI in accordance with past Equifax accounting and financial practices and procedures pertaining to such matters. To the extent expenses that pertain to Transferred Individuals are unpaid as of the Close of the Distribution Date, PSI or any member of the PSI Group shall be solely responsible for such payment, without regard to any accounting treatment to be accorded such expense by Equifax or PSI on their respective books and records. The accounting treatment to be accorded all expenses incurred prior to the Distribution Date, whether such expenses are paid by Equifax or PSI, shall be determined by Equifax in its sole discretion. (b) Balance Sheet Amounts PSI shall assume any and all balance sheet liability that relates to any Liability assumed by it under this Agreement as of the Close of the Distribution Date or thereafter. The balance sheet liabilities to be assumed pursuant to this Section shall be determined by Equifax in its sole discretion consistent with past accounting practices, consistently applied. 7.02 Sharing of Participant Information Equifax and PSI shall share, Equifax shall cause each applicable member of the Equifax Group to share, and PSI shall cause each applicable member of the PSI Group to share, with each other and their respective agents and vendors (without obtaining releases) all participant information necessary for the efficient and accurate administration of each of the Equifax Plans and the PSI Plans during the period Equifax and PSI are coordinating with respect to vendor contracts under Section 5.05. Equifax and PSI and their respective authorized agents shall, subject to applicable laws on confidentiality, be given reasonable and timely access to, and may make copies of, all information relating to the subjects of this Agreement in the custody of the other party, to the extent necessary for such administration. Until the Close of the Distribution Date, all participant information shall be provided in the manner and medium applicable to Participating Companies in the Equifax Plans generally, and thereafter until December 31, 2002, all participant information shall be provided in a manner and medium that is compatible with the data processing systems of Equifax as in effect on the Close of the Distribution Date, unless otherwise agreed to by Equifax and PSI. 7.03 Restrictions on Extension of Option Exercise Periods, Amendment or Modification of Option Terms and Conditions PSI agrees that, without the prior written consent of Equifax, neither PSI nor any of its affiliates or Subsidiaries shall take any action to extend the exercise period of or to provide for additional vesting with respect to any PSI options, which were received pursuant to Section 6.04 in replacement of Equifax options, for Transferred Individuals, including providing such -33-

Transferred Individuals with leaves of absences or special termination or severance arrangements. 7.04 Non-Solicitation of Employees/Others For the period through December 31, 2002, PSI and its affiliates and Subsidiaries will not, without the prior written consent of Equifax, and Equifax and its affiliates and Subsidiaries will not, without the prior written consent of PSI, whether directly or indirectly, solicit (in writing or orally) for employment or other services, whether as an employee, officer, director, agent, consultant, or independent contractor, any person who is or was at the time of such solicitation an employee, agent, consultant, independent contractor, representative, officer, or director of the other party; provided, however, that -------- ------- this covenant shall not apply in cases where such solicitation occurs more than 30 days after the individual to be solicited has had his employment or other service relationship with the other party terminated by the employer. 7.05 Reporting and Disclosure and Communications to Participants While PSI is a Participating Company in the Equifax Plans, PSI shall take, and shall cause each other applicable member of the PSI Group to take, all actions necessary or appropriate to facilitate the distribution of all Equifax Plan-related communications and materials to employees, participants and beneficiaries, including summary plan descriptions and related summaries of material modification, summary annual reports, investment information, prospectuses, notices and enrollment materials for the PSI Plans. PSI shall assist, and PSI shall cause each other applicable member of the PSI Group to assist, Equifax in complying with all reporting and disclosure requirements of ERISA for plan years ending on or before December 31, 2002, including the preparation of Form 5500 annual reports for the Equifax Plans, where applicable. 7.06 Plan Audits (a) Audit Rights with Respect to the Allocation or Transfer of Plan Assets The allocation of Pension Plan assets and liabilities pursuant to Section 3.02 and the transfer of assets from Equifax's VEBA pursuant to Section 5.02, shall, at the election of PSI, be audited on behalf of both Equifax and PSI by an actuarial and benefit consulting firm mutually selected by the parties; provided, however, that no audit shall be permitted after the date of the Bulk - -------- ------- Asset Transfer, in the case of the Pension Plans, or the actual transfer of assets, in the case of the Equifax VEBA. The scope of such audit shall be limited to the accuracy of the data and the accuracy of the computation and adherence to the methodology specified in this Agreement and, except as set forth in the penultimate sentence of this Section 7.06(a), such audit shall not be binding on the parties. The actuarial and benefit consulting firm shall provide its report to both Equifax and PSI. No other audit shall be conducted with respect to the allocation of Plan assets and no issue of any nature whatsoever may be raised by PSI once the transfer of assets has been completed. Subject to the following two sentences, no transfer of assets shall occur unless and until PSI agrees to the allocation of assets. To the extent such audit recommends a change to the value of assets allocated to a PSI Plan of less than 5%, the original determination shall be binding on the parties and shall not be subject to the dispute resolution process provided in Section 7.17. To the extent such audit recommends such a change of 5% or more (a "Significant Allocation -34-

Change"), any unresolved dispute between the parties as to whether and how to make any change in response to such recommendation shall be subject to the dispute resolution process provided in Section 7.17. PSI shall pay or shall be responsible for the payment of the full costs of such audit; provided, however, -------- ------- that in the event such audit recommends a Significant Allocation Change and such recommendation is attributable to variances in actuarial assumptions or simplification or modification of the allocation calculated by Equifax, Equifax shall be responsible for the full costs of such audit. (b) Audit Rights With Respect to Information Provided (1) Subject to Section 7.06(b)(2), each of Equifax and PSI, and their duly authorized representatives, shall have the right to conduct audits at any time upon reasonable prior notice, at their own expense, with respect to all information provided to it or to any Plan recordkeeper or third-party administrator by the other party. Subject to Sections 7.06(a) and 7.06(b)(2), the party conducting the audit shall have the sole discretion to determine the procedures and guidelines for conducting audits and the selection of audit representatives. The auditing party shall have the right to make copies of any records at its expense, subject to the confidentiality provisions set forth in the Distribution Agreement, which are incorporated by reference herein. The party being audited shall provide the auditing party's representatives with reasonable access during normal business hours to its operations, computer systems and paper and electronic files, and provide workspace to its representatives. After any audit is completed, the party being audited shall have the right to review a draft of the audit findings and to comment on those findings in writing within five business days after receiving such draft. (2) The auditing party's audit rights under this Section 7.06(b) shall include the right to audit, or participate in an audit facilitated by the party being audited, of any Subsidiaries and affiliates of the party being audited and of any benefit providers and third parties with whom the party being audited has a relationship, or agents of such party, to the extent any such persons are affected by or addressed in this Agreement (collectively, the "Non-parties"). The party being audited shall, upon written request from the auditing party, provide an individual (at the auditing party's expense) to supervise any audit of any such benefit provider or third party. The auditing party shall be responsible for supplying, at its expense, additional personnel sufficient to complete the audit in a reasonably timely manner. (c) Audits Regarding Vendor Contracts From Immediately after the Distribution Date through December 31, 2002, Equifax and PSI and their duly authorized representatives shall have the right to conduct joint audits with respect to any vendor contracts that relate to both the Equifax Health and Welfare Plans and the PSI Health and Welfare Plans. The scope of such audits shall encompass the review of all correspondence, account records, claim forms, canceled drafts (unless retained by the bank), provider bills, medical records submitted with claims, billing corrections, vendor's internal corrections of previous errors and any other documents or instruments relating to the services performed by the vendor under the applicable vendor contracts. Equifax and PSI shall agree on the performance standards, audit methodology, auditing policy and quality measures and reporting requirements relating to the audits described in this Section 7.06(c) and the manner in which costs incurred in connection with such audits will be shared. -35-

(d) Audit Assistance To the extent that either Equifax or PSI is required to respond to any Governmental Authority, vendor or recordkeeper audit, or otherwise conducts an audit with respect to any provision or obligation of the other party under this Agreement, Equifax or PSI, whichever is applicable, shall be required to fully cooperate with the audit, including providing such records and data as may be necessary to respond to any document or data request that may arise by reason of such audit. The party being audited shall provide the auditing party's representatives with reasonable access during normal business hours to its operations, computer systems and paper and electronic files, and provide workspace to its representatives. To the extent the results of an audit result in any correction to the Liabilities involving any Transferred Individuals, PSI shall be solely responsible for all such costs and expenses associated with such Liabilities and any related corrections. 7.07 Beneficiary Designations/Release of Information/Right to Reimbursement All beneficiary designations, authorizations for the release of information and rights to reimbursement made by or relating to Transferred Individuals under Equifax Plans shall be transferred to and be in full force and effect under the corresponding PSI Plans until such beneficiary designations, authorizations or rights are replaced or revoked by, or no longer apply, to the relevant Transferred Individual. 7.08 Requests for Internal Revenue Service Rulings and United States Department of Labor Opinions and Satisfaction of Obligations Arising From Voluntary Compliance Programs (a) Cooperation PSI shall cooperate fully with Equifax on any issue relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement for which Equifax elects to seek a determination letter or private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service or an advisory opinion from the United States Department of Labor. Equifax shall cooperate fully with PSI with respect to any request for a determination letter or private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service or advisory opinion from the United States Department of Labor with respect to any of the PSI Plans relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. (b) Applications Equifax and PSI shall make such applications to regulatory agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Department of Labor, as may be necessary to ensure that any transfers of assets from the Equifax VEBA to the PSI VEBA will neither (i) result in any adverse tax, legal or fiduciary consequences to Equifax and PSI, the Equifax VEBA, the PSI VEBA, any participant therein or beneficiaries thereof, any successor welfare benefit funds established by or on behalf of PSI, or the trustees of such trusts, nor (ii) contravene any statute, regulation or technical pronouncement issued by any regulatory agency. Before the Close of the Distribution Date, PSI shall prepare all forms required to obtain favorable determination letters from the Internal Revenue Service with respect to the tax-exempt status of the PSI VEBA. PSI and Equifax agree to cooperate with each other to fulfill any filing and/or regulatory reporting obligations with respect to such transfers. -36-

7.09 Fiduciary and Related Matters The parties acknowledge that Equifax will not be a fiduciary with respect to the PSI Plans and that PSI will not be a fiduciary with respect to the Equifax Plans. The parties also acknowledge that neither party shall be deemed to be in violation of this Agreement if it fails to comply with any provisions hereof based upon its good faith determination that to do so would violate any applicable fiduciary duties or standards of conduct under ERISA or other applicable law. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, the parties may take such actions as necessary or appropriate to effectuate the terms and provisions of this Agreement. 7.10 No Third-Party Beneficiaries; Non-Termination of Employment This Agreement is not intended and shall not be construed as to confer upon any Person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder. No provision of this Agreement or the Distribution Agreement shall be construed to create any right, or accelerate entitlement, to any compensation or benefit whatsoever on the part of any Transferred Individual or other future, present, or former employee of the Equifax Group or the PSI Group under any Equifax Plan or PSI Plan or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, except as expressly provided in this Agreement: (i) neither the Distribution nor the termination of the Participating Company status of a member of the PSI Group shall cause any employee to be deemed to have incurred a termination of employment which entitles such individual to the commencement of benefits under any of the Equifax Plans, any of the PSI Plans, or any of the Individual Agreements; and (ii) nothing in this Agreement other than those provisions specifically set forth herein to the contrary shall preclude PSI, at any time after the Close of the Distribution Date, from amending, merging, modifying, terminating, eliminating, reducing, or otherwise altering in any respect any PSI Plan, any benefit under any Plan or any trust, insurance policy or funding vehicle related to any PSI Plan. 7.11 Collective Bargaining To the extent any provision of this Agreement is contrary to the provisions of any applicable collective bargaining agreement to which Equifax or any affiliate of Equifax is a party, the terms of such collective bargaining agreement shall prevail. Should any provision of this Agreement be deemed to relate to a topic determined by an appropriate authority to be a mandatory subject of collective bargaining, Equifax or PSI may be obligated to bargain with the union representing affected employees concerning those subjects. In the event a force surplus affecting members of a bargaining unit in both the Equifax Group (on the one hand) and the PSI Group (on the other hand) directly results, due to the provisions of such a collective bargaining agreement, in an employee involuntarily leaving the payroll of the party not declaring the surplus, then the party declaring the surplus shall bear the cost of any severance payable to such employee. 7.12 Consent of Third Parties If any provision of this Agreement is dependent on the consent of any third party (such as a vendor) and such consent is withheld, Equifax and PSI shall use their reasonable best efforts to implement the applicable provisions of this Agreement to the full extent practicable. If any provision of this Agreement cannot be implemented due to the failure of such third party to -37-

consent, Equifax and PSI shall negotiate in good faith to implement the provision in a mutually satisfactory manner. The phrase "reasonable best efforts" as used in this Agreement shall not be construed to require the incurrence of any non-routine or unreasonable expense or liability or the waiver of any right. 7.13 Foreign Plans The treatment of Foreign Plans by Equifax and PSI shall be set forth in Appendix C. 7.14 Effect If Distribution Does Not Occur If the Distribution does not occur, then all actions and events that are, under this Agreement, to be taken or occur before or effective as of the Close of the Distribution Date, Immediately after the Distribution Date, or otherwise in connection with the Distribution, shall not be taken or occur except to the extent specifically agreed by PSI and Equifax. 7.15 Relationship of Parties Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed or construed by the parties or any third party as creating the relationship of principal and agent, partnership or joint venture between the parties, it being understood and agreed that no provision contained herein, and no act of the parties, shall be deemed to create any relationship between the parties other than the relationship set forth herein. 7.16 Affiliates Each of Equifax and PSI shall cause to be performed, and hereby guarantees the performance of, all actions, agreements and obligations set forth in this Agreement to be performed by members of the Equifax Group or members of the PSI Group, respectively, where relevant. 7.17 Dispute Resolution Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach hereof, shall be settled pursuant to the dispute resolution provisions described in the Distribution Agreement. 7.18 Indemnification Effective on the Distribution Date, PSI and each member of the PSI Group agree to jointly and severally indemnify and hold harmless Equifax and each member of the Equifax Group and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents and the Equifax Plans and any related trusts, including the Equifax Pension Trust and the trustees thereof, from and against any and all losses, Liabilities, claims, suits, damages, costs and expenses (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and any and all expenses reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any pending or seriously threatened litigation or claim) (collectively, "Indemnifiable Expenses") arising out of or related in any manner to Transferred Individuals, except for Indemnifiable Expenses arising solely out of a claim which is made by any Person (other than a Person who is a member of the PSI or Equifax Group) and which is related solely to Equifax's exercise of its fiduciary responsibility for the investment of -38-

the assets of the Equifax Plans prior to the Distribution Date (or prior to the Pension Plan Spinoff Date for purposes of the Equifax Pension Plan and prior to the Savings Plan Transfer Date for purposes of the Equifax Savings Plan). In addition, effective on the Distribution Date, Equifax agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each member of the PSI Group and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents and the PSI Plans and any related trusts, including the PSI Pension Trust and the trustees thereof, from and against any and all Indemnifiable Expenses arising solely out of a claim which is made by any Person (other than a Person who is a member of the PSI or Equifax Groups) and which is related solely to Equifax's exercise of its fiduciary responsibility for the investment of the assets of the Equifax Plans prior to the Distribution Date (or prior to the Pension Plan Spinoff Date for purposes of the Equifax Pension Plan and prior to the Savings Plan Transfer Date for purposes of the Equifax Savings Plan). If any action is brought or any claim is made against a party or person in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to this Section 7.18 (the "Indemnitee"), the Indemnitee shall, within twenty (20) days after the receipt of information indicating that an action or claim is likely, notify in writing the party from whom indemnification is sought (the "Indemnitor") of the institution of the action or the making of the claim, and the Indemnitor shall have the right, and at the request of the Indemnitee, shall have the obligation, to assume the defense of the action or claim, including the employment of counsel. If the Indemnitor assumes the defense of the action or claim, the Indemnitor shall be entitled to settle the action or claim on behalf of the Indemnitee without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, unless such settlement would, in addition to the payment of money, materially affect the ongoing business or employment of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee shall have the right to interpret the provisions of its own Plans and to employ its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of that counsel shall be the responsibility of the Indemnitee unless: (i) the employment of that counsel shall have been authorized in writing by the Indemnitor in connection with the defense of the action or claim; (ii) the Indemnitor shall not have employed counsel to have charge of the defense of such action or claim; or (iii) such Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded that there may be defenses available to it which are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnitor (in which case the Indemnitor shall not have the right to direct any different defense of the action or claim on behalf of the Indemnitee). The Indemnitee shall, in any event, be kept fully informed of the defense of any such action or claim. Except as expressly provided above, in the event that the Indemnitor shall not previously have assumed the defense of an action or claim, at such time as the Indemnitor does assume the defense of the action or claim, the Indemnitor shall not thereafter be liable to any Indemnitee for legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnitee in investigating, preparing or defending against such action or claim. Anything in this Section 7.18 to the contrary notwithstanding, the Indemnitor shall not be liable for any settlement of any claim or action effected without its written consent; provided, however, that if after due -------- ------- notice the Indemnitor refuses to defend a claim or action, the Indemnitee shall have the right to defend and/or settle such action, and the Indemnitee shall not be precluded from making a claim against the Indemnitor for reasonable expenses and liabilities resulting from such defense and/or settlement in accordance with this Section 7.18. -39-

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 7.18, there may be particular actions or claims which reasonably could result in both parties being liable to the other under the indemnification provisions of this Agreement. In such events, the Parties shall endeavor, acting reasonably and in good faith, to agree upon a manner of conducting the defense and settlement of the action or claim with a view to minimizing the legal expenses and associated costs that might otherwise be incurred by the parties, such as, by way of illustration only, agreeing to use the same legal counsel. The indemnification provisions of this Section 7.18 shall not inure to the benefit of any third party. By way of illustration only, an insurer who would otherwise be obligated to pay any claim shall not be relieved of the responsibility with respect thereto, or, solely by virtue of the indemnification provisions, hereof, have any subrogation rights with respect thereto, it being expressly understood and agreed that no insurer or any other third party shall be entitled to a "windfall" (i.e., a benefit they would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the indemnification provisions) by virtue of these indemnification provisions. 7.19 W-2 Matters Pursuant to the alternative procedure set forth in Internal Revenue Service Rev. Proc. 96-60, PSI will assume Equifax's obligations to furnish Forms W-2 to all Transferred Individuals for the year in which the Distribution Date occurs. Equifax will provide to PSI the information not available to PSI relating to periods ending on the Distribution Date necessary for PSI to prepare and distribute Forms W-2 to Transferred Individuals for the year in which the Distribution Date occurs, which will include all remuneration earned by Transferred Individuals before the Distribution Date and Forms W-4 provided to Equifax by Transferred Individuals to the extent that PSI is not already in possession of such information. PSI shall prepare and distribute such forms. To the extent permitted by applicable law, in particular Code (S)(S) 3121(a)(1) and 3306(b)(1), PSI shall be deemed a successor employer to Equifax with respect to Transferred Individuals for purposes of calculating the annual wage limitation to which state and federal payroll taxes apply. 7.20 Confidentiality Except as required by applicable law, for the purpose of satisfying any obligation under this Agreement or with the consent of the other party, neither Equifax nor PSI shall disclose to any Person (other than members of the Equifax Group or the PSI Group) any information (including, but not limited to, information regarding fees, expenses, assets, Liabilities and Plan terms) relating to the Equifax Plans, PSI Plans or Transferred Individuals. Each of Equifax and PSI shall be permitted to disclose such information within the Equifax Group and PSI Group only to the extent reasonably necessary in the ordinary course of business. 7.21 Notices Any notice, demand, claim, or other communication under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be given in accordance with the provisions for giving notice under the Distribution Agreement. -40-

7.22 Interpretation Words in the singular shall be held to include the plural and vice versa and words of one gender shall be held to include the other genders as the context requires. The terms "hereof," "herein," and "herewith" and words of similar import shall, unless otherwise stated, be construed to refer to this Agreement as a whole (including all Appendices hereto) and not to any particular provision of this Agreement. The word "including" and words of similar import when used in this Agreement shall mean "including, without limitation," unless the context otherwise requires or unless otherwise specified. The word "or" shall not be exclusive. 7.23 Governing Law/Execution This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, may not be assigned by either party without the prior written consent of the other, and shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assignees. This Agreement may not be amended or supplemented except by an agreement in writing signed by Equifax and PSI. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. [signature page follows] -41-

Appendix C Foreign Plans This Appendix C describes the principles under which Foreign Plans shall be treated. For purposes of this Appendix, outside the U.S. means outside the 50 United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and employed outside the U.S. means compensated under a payroll which is administered outside the United States. C.1 Plans Covering only Employees of Equifax or PSI Effective as of the Close of the Distribution Date or such later date as may be required by applicable law, union, or works council agreement, any Foreign Plan that covers only individuals employed outside the U.S. by the Equifax Group shall be the sole responsibility of the Equifax Group and no member of the PSI Group shall have any Liability with respect to such a Plan; and any Foreign Plan that covers only individuals employed outside the U.S. by the PSI Group shall be the sole responsibility of the PSI Group and no member of the Equifax Group shall have any Liability with respect to such a Plan. C.2 Plans Covering Employees of Both Equifax and PSI (a) Termination of Participation To the extent legally permitted and except as otherwise provided herein, effective as of the Close of the Distribution Date, or as soon as practicable thereafter, PSI and each other applicable member of the PSI Group shall cease to be a Participating Company in each Foreign Plan maintained by Equifax or the Equifax Group and each other applicable member of the Equifax Group shall cease to be a Participating Company in each Foreign Plan maintained by the PSI Group. Equifax and PSI recognize that because of the requirements of local law or administrative considerations, a transition period extending beyond the Close of the Distribution Date may be required during which Equifax or PSI may continue to participate in each other's Foreign Plans. During such transition period, Equifax and PSI agree to cooperate in handling any and all matters with respect to the Foreign Plans. (b) Mirror Plans (1) Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, PSI shall adopt, or cause to be adopted, Foreign Plans for the benefit of employees of the PSI Group employed outside the United States who are eligible to participate in Equifax Foreign Plans and shall cause such PSI Foreign Plans to be substantially identical in all Material Features to the corresponding Equifax Foreign Plans as in effect on the Distribution Date. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence - (i) PSI may satisfy this requirement by extending coverage to such individuals under a Foreign Plan of the PSI Group which was in effect before the Distribution Date and which is, with respect to all Material Features, at least equal to the corresponding Equifax Foreign Plan, and (ii) PSI is not required to adopt a defined benefit pension plan for the benefit of its Canadian employees (but instead shall make an equitable adjustment to the defined contribution plan covering these employees). -45-

(2) Effective Immediately after the Distribution Date, Equifax shall adopt, or cause to be adopted, Plans for the benefit of employees of the Equifax Group employed outside the United States who are eligible to participate in PSI Plans and shall cause such Plans to be substantially identical in all Material Features to the corresponding PSI Foreign Plans as in effect on the Distribution Date; provided, however, that Equifax may satisfy this requirement by extending -------- ------- or continuing coverage to such individuals under an Equifax Foreign Plan of the Equifax Group which was in effect before the Distribution Date. (3) The continuation by Equifax or PSI of separate employment terms and conditions for employees previously covered by the other entity's Plans shall not continue beyond the time legally required. (c) Transfer of Assets As of the Close of the Distribution Date, Equifax and PSI will use their reasonable best efforts to ensure that, to the extent legally permitted: (i) Liabilities of the Foreign Plans of Equifax relating to Transferred Individuals shall be assumed by the appropriate Foreign Plans of PSI; and (ii) an appropriate portion of any assets of the Foreign Plans of Equifax shall be transferred to the appropriate Foreign Plans of PSI, and vice versa. C.3 Severance Issues If under applicable law, any Transferred Individual employed outside the U.S. is deemed to have incurred a termination of employment as a result of the Distribution or any other transaction contemplated by the Distribution Agreement or this Agreement, which entitles such individual to receive any payment or benefit under any Foreign Plan, governmental plan or arrangement or pursuant to any law or regulation, including severance benefits, notwithstanding such individual's continued employment by the PSI Group, then PSI shall be liable for any such payment or benefit and, notwithstanding any other provision hereof, to the extent legally permitted, appropriate adjustments shall be made to the treatment of such individual during such continued employment, including not giving such individual credit for prior service and/or treating such individual as having been newly hired immediately after such deemed termination, for purposes of all applicable Foreign Plans. Liability with respect to such payments shall be the responsibility of PSI. C.4 Legally Permitted For purposes of this Appendix C, "legally permitted" means permitted under the laws of the country, the labor union, works council, or collective agreement without adverse consequences to Equifax, PSI or Transferred Individuals, as determined by Equifax, in its sole discretion, including mandated waiting periods before which working conditions (including benefits) cannot be changed, and upon receiving required agreement from individual employees and/or Plan trustees, foundation boards and members, and any other organizations having a recognized right to determine or affect benefits and/or funding of the Plan. -46-

C.5 Multinational Pooling Equifax and PSI shall keep their existing multinational pooling arrangements intact so long as the parties mutually agree. If there is any dividend payable from the consolidated pooling arrangements with respect to the 2001 pool accounting year, that dividend will be allocated between Equifax and PSI proportionately, based on the contribution to the overall surplus of the pooling arrangements by the Equifax Group and the PSI Group, respectively. Alternatively, any net deficits incurred under any one (or all) consolidated pooling arrangement(s) will be apportioned back to the entity which incurred the deficit proportionately based on each entities' contribution to the net deficit. -47-

Equifax Group; (b) any Third Party Claim arising out of or in connection with any breach of Section 2.3 or any Supplemental Terms relating to permitted uses of Data or compliance with laws applicable to the Data by a member of the Equifax Group, or a breach of any certification made by a member of the Equifax Group in the Supplemental Terms; or (c) any Third Party Claim alleging that Data supplied by a Provider that is a member of the Equifax Group, or the act of providing such Data, infringes upon a copyright or other intellectual property right under the law of the country in which such Data is intended to be used; except such damages, loss, liability and expense resulting from the willful misconduct of a member of the PSI Group. Section 6.3. Insurance and Third Party Obligations. No insurer or any other third party shall be (a) entitled to a benefit it would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the foregoing indemnification provisions, (b) relieved of the responsibility to pay any claims to which it is obligated, or (c) entitled to any subrogation rights with respect to any obligation hereunder. ARTICLE VII INDEMNIFICATION PROCEDURES Section 7.1. Notice and Payment of Claims. If any Equifax or PSI Indemnitee (the "Indemnified Party") determines that it is or may be entitled to indemnification by a party (the "Indemnifying Party") under Article VI (other than in connection with any Action or claim subject to Section 7.2), the Indemnified Party shall deliver to the Indemnifying Party a written notice specifying, to the extent reasonably practicable, the basis for its claim for indemnification and the amount for which the Indemnified Party reasonably believes it is entitled to be indemnified. After the Indemnifying Party shall have been notified of the amount for which the Indemnified Party seeks indemnification, the Indemnifying Party shall, within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, pay the Indemnified Party such amount in cash or other immediately available funds (or reach agreement with the Indemnified Party as to a mutually agreeable alternative payment schedule) unless the Indemnifying Party objects to the claim for indemnification or the amount thereof. If the Indemnifying Party does not give the Indemnified Party written notice objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds therefor within the same thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged its liability for such claim and the Indemnified Party may exercise any and all of its rights under applicable law to collect such amount. Any amount owed under this Section 7.1 that is past due shall bear interest at a simple rate of interest per annum equal to the Prime Rate plus 2%. Section 7.2. Notice and Defense of Third Party Claims. (a) Promptly following the earlier of (i) receipt of notice of the commencement by a third party of any Action against or otherwise involving any Indemnified Party or (ii) receipt of information from a third party alleging the existence of a claim against an Indemnified Party, in either case, with respect to which indemnification may be sought pursuant to Article VI of this Agreement (a "Third Party Claim"), the Indemnified Party shall give the -12-

Indemnifying Party written notice thereof. The failure of the Indemnified Party to give notice as provided in this Section 7.2 shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure to give notice. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, the Indemnifying Party shall by giving written notice thereof to the Indemnified Party, (i) acknowledge, as between the parties hereto, liability for, and at its option, assumption of the defense of such Third Party Claim at its sole cost and expense or (ii) object to the claim of indemnification set forth in the notice delivered by the Indemnified Party pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 7.2 setting forth the grounds therefor; provided that if the Indemnifying Party does not within the same thirty (30) day period give the Indemnified Party written notice acknowledging liability and electing to assume the defense or objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds therefor, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged, as between the parties hereto, its liability to the Indemnified Party for such Third Party Claim. (b) Any contest of a Third Party Claim as to which the Indemnifying Party has elected to assume the defense shall be conducted by attorneys employed by the Indemnifying Party and reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in such proceedings and to be represented by attorneys of its own choosing at the Indemnified Party's sole cost and expense. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle or compromise the claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnifying Party may not agree to any such settlement pursuant to which any remedy or relief, other than monetary damages for which the Indemnifying Party shall be responsible hereunder, shall be applied to or against the Indemnified Party, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. (c) If the Indemnifying Party does not assume the defense of a Third Party Claim for which it has acknowledged liability for indemnification that arises under Article VI, the Indemnified Party may require the Indemnifying Party to reimburse it on a current basis for its reasonable expenses of investigation, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in defending against such Third Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party shall be bound by the result obtained with respect thereto by the Indemnified Party; provided that the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement effected without its consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Indemnifying Party shall pay to the Indemnified Party in cash the amount for which the Indemnified Party is entitled to be indemnified (if any) within fifteen (15) days after the final resolution of such Third Party Claim (whether by settlement, compromise, or the final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or otherwise), or, in the case of any Third Party Claim as to which the Indemnifying Party has not acknowledged liability, within fifteen (15) days after such Indemnifying Party's objection has been resolved by settlement, compromise or the final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. -13-

ARTICLE VIII CONFIDENTIALITY Section 8.1. Exclusions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, "Company Information" does not include any information that before being divulged by the receiving party (a) has become generally known to the public through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (b) has been rightfully received by the receiving party from a third party without restriction on disclosure and without, to the knowledge of the receiving party, a breach of an obligation of confidentiality running directly or indirectly to the disclosing party; (c) has been approved for release to the general public by a written authorization of the disclosing party; (d) has been independently developed by the receiving party without use, directly or indirectly, of Company Information received from the disclosing party; or (e) has been furnished to a third party by the disclosing party without restrictions on the third party's rights to disclose the information. Section 8.2. Confidentiality. (a) Each party acknowledges, and shall cause each member of its Group to acknowledge, that it is in possession of significant confidential or proprietary information concerning the business operations and tangible and intangible property of the members of the other Group. (b) Each party shall, and shall ensure that each member of its Group shall, (i) receive and hold the Company Information of the other party in trust and in strictest confidence; (ii) protect such Company Information from disclosure and in no event take any action causing, or fail to take the action necessary in order to prevent, any such Company Information to lose its character as Company Information; (iii) exercise at a minimum the same care it would exercise to protect its own Company Information; and (iv) not use, reproduce, distribute, disclose, or otherwise disseminate the Company Information of the other party except as authorized pursuant to this Agreement and in the Supplemental Terms attached hereto, as amended from time to time, or any Ancillary Agreement, or except pursuant to a requirement of a governmental agency or of law, without similar restrictions or other protections against public disclosure; provided, however, the receiving party must first give written notice of such required disclosure to the disclosing party, take reasonable steps to allow the disclosing party to seek to protect the confidentiality of the Company Information required to be disclosed, make a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order requiring that the Company Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which disclosure is required, and shall disclose only that part of the Company Information which, in the written opinion of its legal counsel, it is required to disclose. In no event shall the receiving party exercise less than a reasonable standard of care to keep confidential the Company Information. Any and all reproductions of such Company Information must prominently contain a confidential legend. (c) The receiving party may make disclosures of the Company Information of the disclosing party only to Representatives of the receiving party (i) who have a specific need to know such information; and (ii) who the receiving party has obligated under a written agreement -14-

to hold such Company Information in trust and in strictest confidence and otherwise to comply with the terms and provisions of this Agreement. PSI and Equifax agree, and shall ensure that each member of its respective Group agrees, to monitor each such Representative, enforce such agreements with its Representatives, and, upon request by the other party, promptly to furnish to the other party a list of the receiving party's Representatives having had access to such Company Information. (d) Within thirty (30) days following the receipt of a written request from the disclosing party, the receiving party must deliver to the disclosing party all tangible materials containing or embodying the disclosing party's Company Information applicable to a triggering event, together with a certificate executed by the president or any vice president of the receiving party certifying that all such materials in the receiving party's possession have been delivered to the disclosing party or, at the disclosing party's option, certify that all such materials in the receiving party's possession have been destroyed. For the purposes of this Article VIII, a "triggering event" means the cessation of the provision of Data by the disclosing party to the receiving party under this Agreement or the termination of the Agreement. (e) The covenants of confidentiality set forth in this Agreement (i) will apply after the Effective Time to all Company Information disclosed to the receiving party before and after the Distribution Date and (ii) will continue and must be maintained from the Effective Time through the termination of the relationship under this Agreement between Equifax and PSI and (A) with respect to Proprietary Information, at any and all times after the termination of the relationship under this Agreement between Equifax and PSI during which such Proprietary Information retains its status as a "trade secret" under applicable law; and (B) with respect to Confidential Information, for three (3) years after termination of the relationship under this Agreement between Equifax and PSI. Section 8.3. Employee Confidentiality Agreements. The members of the Group have entered into confidentiality and non- disclosure agreements with their respective employees. To the extent that any employee during or after employment violates such agreement and such violation is or may in the future be to the detriment of the other party's Group, at the written request of the affected party, the other Party shall promptly take remedial measures with such employee if and to the extent reasonable under the circumstances to preserve the value of the Data and to enforce its obligations hereunder. The party employing the affected employee shall have the unilateral right to determine the forum for, the manner of proceeding in, and legal counsel for such action and shall be entitled to any damages or other relief against such employee awarded in such action to the extent related to such party's Data or business. Each party shall bear all of its own out-of-pocket costs of pursuing such action and the other party shall cooperate in connection therewith. Section 8.4. Rights and Remedies. (a) If either party, or any member of the Group, should breach or threaten to breach any of the provisions of this Article VIII, the non-breaching party, in addition to any other remedies it may have at law or in equity, will be entitled to a restraining order, injunction, or other similar remedy in order to specifically enforce the provisions of this Article VIII. Each -15-

party specifically acknowledges, and shall cause each member of its respective Group, to acknowledge that money damages alone would be an inadequate remedy for the injuries and damage that would be suffered and incurred by the non-breaching party as a result of a breach of any of the provisions of this Article VIII. In the event that either party, or a member of such party's Group, should seek an injunction hereunder, the other party hereby waives, and shall cause each member of its Group to waive, any requirement for the submission of proof of the economic value of any Company Information or the posting of a bond or any other security. (b) The receiving party shall notify the disclosing party upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Company Information, or any other breach of Article VIII of this Agreement by the receiving party, or any Representative of the receiving party's Group, and will cooperate with the disclosing party in every reasonable way to help the disclosing party regain possession of its Company Information and prevent its further unauthorized use or disclosure. The receiving party shall be responsible for the acts of any Representative of its Group that are in violation of this Article VIII. Section 8.5. Competitive Activities. Subject to the rights and obligations set forth in Article VIII, each party understands and acknowledges that the other party's Group may now market or have under development products that are competitive with products or services now offered or that may be offered by it and/or the members of its Group, and the parties' communications hereunder will not serve to impair the right of either party or any member of its respective Group to independently develop, make, use, procure, or market products or services now or in the future that may be competitive with those offered by the other party's Group, nor require either party and/or the members of its Group to disclose any planning or other information to the other party. Section 8.6. No Implied Rights. All Company Information is and shall remain the property of the disclosing party and/or the member of its respective Group. By disclosing Company Information to the receiving party's Group, the disclosing party and/or the members of its respective Group do(es) not grant any express or implied rights or license to the receiving party's Group to or under any patents, patent applications, inventions, copyrights, trademarks, trade secret information, or other intellectual property rights heretofore or hereafter possessed by the disclosing party and/or the members of its respective Group. ARTICLE IX CONTINUED ASSISTANCE Section 9.1. Continued Assistance and Transition. (a) Following the Effective Time, Equifax and PSI shall, and shall cause each member of their respective Groups to, cooperate in the orderly purchase and sale of Data hereunder. From time to time, at Equifax's or PSI's request and without further consideration, the other party shall, and shall cause each member of the other party's Group, as applicable, to execute, acknowledge and deliver such documents, instruments or assurances and take such other -16-

action as the requesting party may reasonably request to more effectively evidence compliance with the Supplemental Terms applicable to the purchase and sale of Data as reflected in the Supplemental Terms for the applicable Data in effect from time to time, as amended and/or modified by the Provider. Section 9.2. Litigation Cooperation. (a) Upon written request, Equifax and PSI shall, and shall cause each member of its Group to, use reasonable efforts to cooperate in the evaluation and defense of third party Actions regarding (i) Data provided by the other party or a member of its Group hereunder or (ii) arising out of the business of the other party or of any member of the other party's Group prior to the Distribution Date in which the requesting party or any member of its Group may from time to time be involved, at the cost and expense of the requesting party. Such cooperation shall include, without limitation, making its Representatives available as witnesses or consultants to the extent that such persons may reasonably be required in connection with such third party Actions. (b) Equifax and PSI shall, and shall cause each member of its respective Group, to use reasonable efforts to notify the other if it learns of a potential or actual third party claim related to the Data provided pursuant to this Agreement to be brought against any member of the other's Group. ARTICLE X TERM AND TERMINATION Section 10.1. Term. (a) The term of this Agreement shall commence at the Effective Time and shall continue for two (2) years. Section 10.2. Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement: (i) by giving notice to the other if the other party shall have failed within thirty (30) days after the receipt of written notice to remedy any material breach of this Agreement set forth in the notice; or (ii) if the other Party becomes insolvent, or is unable to pay its debts as due, or enters into or files or has filed or commenced against it a petition, arrangement, action or other proceeding seeking relief or protection under the bankruptcy laws of the United States or any similar laws of the United States or any State of the United States or of any other country or jurisdiction, or has a trustee, receiver or liquidator appointed for all or a substantial part of its assets. (iii) upon written notice to the other, if, for any reason, the ownership or control of the other party or any of its operations, becomes vested in, or is made subject -17-

to the control or direction of, any direct competitor of the terminating party or one of its subsidiaries, but such termination shall be applicable only with respect to the products, services or deliverables provided by the terminating party to the portion of the terminated party's businesses that has been affected by the change in control.

Equifax and PSI shall, and as the case may be, shall cause the member of its respective Group which is the holder of such Transferred Asset or Transferred Third Party Agreement prior to transfer, to use all reasonable efforts to provide to the designated member of the other Group all the rights and benefits under such Transferred Asset or Transferred Third Party Agreement and cause such holder to enforce such Transferred Asset or Transferred Third Party Agreement for the benefit of such member of the other Group; provided, however, that the foregoing obligation shall not, in any way, require Equifax, PSI or any member of a respective Group to breach any Transferred Third Party Agreement or incur or suffer any liability with respect to any Transferred Third Party Agreement. Moreover, if any transfer of a Transferred Asset or Transferred Third Party Agreement or provision of a Third Party Right or Third Party Use Right, is not completed by the Distribution Date in accordance with this Agreement for any reason, Equifax and PSI shall, and shall cause the members of its Group to, cooperate in achieving a reasonable alternative arrangement for the affected members of the Groups to obtain the 10

economic and operational equivalent of the intended transfer of such Transferred Asset or Third Party Agreement and/or provision of such Third Party Right or Third Party Use Right, and assumption of the attendant Liabilities, with minimum interference to such members' business operations until such transfer of such Transferred Asset or Third Party Agreement, and/or provision of such Third Party Right or Third Party Use Right, is completed. The costs payable to third parties that are not members of either Group to achieve any such reasonable alternative arrangement shall be the financial responsibility of Equifax. (c) From time to time on and after the Distribution Date, each party shall promptly transfer, and cause the appropriate members of its Group promptly to transfer, to the other party, or the designated member of the other party's Group, any property and other benefits received by such party, or the members of its Group, that are intended to be or are a Transferred Asset or Transferred Third Party Agreement of the other party under this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, funds received by a member of either Group that belong to a member of the other Group (whether by payment of accounts receivable, credits, rebates or other amounts, however described) shall be delivered to the other Group by wire transfer not more than five (5) business days after receipt of such payment. ARTICLE III THIRD PARTY AGREEMENTS Section 3.1. Third Party Agreements.

Agreements as necessary to effect the provisions of this Agreement. Each party will provide the other party with advice on its experience and agreements with the Third Party Providers with regard to obtaining any Required Consent under such Third Party Agreements. Equifax and PSI will each have management and administrative responsibilities for obtaining all Required Consents required as of the Distribution Date to which a member of its respective Group is a party. Equifax shall have the right of prior approval of the terms upon which all Required Consents are obtained.

Equifax and PSI shall timely cooperate with each other in order to facilitate the proper and timely publication of such periodic Required Consents list. If any Required Consent is not obtained with respect to any of the Third Party Agreements or Third Party Use Rights, the parties shall cooperate with each other in achieving a reasonable alternative arrangement for the affected Group to continue to process its work with minimum interference to its business operations until such Required Consents are obtained, including without limitation, implementing the provisions of Section 2.4(b). The cost payable to third parties that are not a member of either Group of achieving such reasonable alternative arrangements with respect to Third Party Rights that are a part of the Transferred Assets or Transferred Third Party Agreements shall be borne by Equifax. (d) The financial obligations of Equifax under Sections 3.2(b) and (c) for Required Consents and alternative arrangements, shall terminate with respect to all such Required Consents and alternative arrangements not identified by the parties to each other in a writing within twelve (12) months after the Distribution Date, and for all Required Consents and alternative arrangements identified thereafter, all such financial obligations shall be borne by the party needing the Required Consent or alternative arrangement to operate under or take assignment of the Third Party Agreement or to obtain such Third Party Right for which such Required Consent or alternative arrangement is required. (e) After the Distribution Date, except as set forth in Sections 3.2(b) and 3.2(c) for Required Consents and alternative arrangements, Equifax and PSI shall each bear financial responsibility and pay the Third Party Providers, under all Transferred Third Party Agreements transferred to its respective Group pursuant to Sections 3.1(a)(i) and 3.1(b)(i) above. 12

ARTICLE VII INDEMNIFICATION Section 7.1. PSI Indemnification of the Equifax Group. On and after the Distribution Date, PSI shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless each member of the Equifax Group, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively the "Equifax Indemnitees") from and against any and all damage, loss, liability and expense, (including without limitation, reasonable expenses of investigation and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses in connection with any and all Actions or threatened Actions) (collectively, "Indemnifiable Losses") incurred or suffered by any of the Equifax Indemnitees arising in connection with the failure of PSI, or any other member of the PSI Group, to timely pay, perform or otherwise discharge, any of the PSI Liabilities or its obligations under this Agreement. 21

Section 7.2. Equifax Indemnification of the PSI Group. On and after the Distribution Date, Equifax shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless each member of the PSI Group and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively the "PSI Indemnitees") from and against any and all Indemnifiable Losses incurred or suffered by any of the PSI Indemnitees arising in connection with the failure of Equifax, or any other member of the Equifax Group, to timely pay, perform or otherwise discharge, any of the Equifax Liabilities or its obligations under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement.

ARTICLE VIII INDEMNIFICATION PROCEDURES Section 8.1. Notice and Payment of Claims. If any Equifax or PSI Indemnitee (the "Indemnified Party") determines that it is or may be entitled to indemnification by a party (the "Indemnifying Party") under Article VII (other than in connection with any Action or claim subject to Section 8.2), the Indemnified Party shall deliver to the Indemnifying Party a written notice specifying, to the extent reasonably practicable, the basis for its claim for indemnification and the amount for which the Indemnified Party reasonably believes it is entitled to be indemnified. After the Indemnifying Party shall have been notified of the amount for which the Indemnified Party seeks indemnification, the Indemnifying Party shall, within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, pay the Indemnified Party such amount in cash or other immediately available funds (or reach agreement with the Indemnified Party as to a mutually agreeable alternative payment schedule) unless the Indemnifying Party objects to the claim for indemnification or the amount thereof. If the Indemnifying Party does not give the Indemnified Party written notice objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds herefore within the same thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged its liability for such claim and the Indemnified Party may exercise any and all of its rights under applicable law to collect such amount. Any amount owed under this Section 8.1 that is past due shall bear interest at a simple rate of interest per annum equal to the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law. Section 8.2. Notice and Defense of Third Party Claims. (a) Promptly following the earlier of either (i) receipt of notice of the commencement by a third party of any Action against or otherwise involving any Indemnified Party, or (ii) receipt of information from a third party alleging the existence of a claim against an Indemnified Party, 22

with respect to which indemnification may be sought pursuant to this Agreement (a "Third Party Claim"), the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party written notice thereof. The failure of the Indemnified Party to give notice as provided in this Section 8.2 shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure to give notice. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, the Indemnifying Party shall by giving written notice thereof to the Indemnified Party, (i) acknowledge, as between the parties hereto, liability for and, at its option, assume the defense of such Third Party Claim at its sole cost and expense, or (ii) object to the claim of indemnification set forth in the notice delivered by the Indemnified Party pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 8.2 setting forth the grounds herefore; provided that if the Indemnifying Party does not within the same thirty (30) day period give the Indemnified Party written notice acknowledging liability and electing to assume the defense, or objecting to such claim and setting forth the grounds herefore, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged, as between the parties hereto, its liability for such Third Party Claim.

Section 9.2. Confidentiality. (a) Each party agrees, and shall cause each member of the Group to agree, that it is in possession of significant confidential or proprietary information concerning the business, operations and assets of the members of the other Group. (b) Each party shall, and shall ensure that each member of the Group shall, (i) receive and hold the Company Information of the other Group in trust and in strictest confidence; (ii) protect such Company Information from disclosure and in no event take any action causing, or fail to take the action necessary in order to prevent, any such Company Information to lose its character as Company Information; (iii) exercise at a minimum the same care it would exercise to protect its own highly confidential information; and (iv) not use, reproduce, distribute, disclose, or otherwise disseminate the Company Information of the other Group, (A) except as authorized pursuant to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, or (B) except pursuant to a requirement of a governmental agency or of law without similar restrictions or other protections against public disclosure; provided, however, with respect to disclosures pursuant to (B) above, the receiving party must first give written notice of such required disclosure to the disclosing party, make a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order requiring that the Company Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which disclosure is required, take reasonable steps to allow the disclosing party to seek to protect the confidentiality of the Company Information required to be disclosed, and shall disclose only that part of the Company Information which, in the written opinion of its legal counsel, it is required to disclose. In no event shall the receiving party exercise less than a reasonable standard of care to keep confidential the Company Information. Any and all reproductions of such Company Information must prominently contain a confidential legend. 24

(c) The receiving party may make disclosures of the Company Information of the disclosing party only to Representatives of the receiving party's Group (i) who have a specific need to know such information; and (ii) who the receiving party has obligated under a written agreement to hold such Company Information in trust and in strictest confidence and otherwise to comply with the terms and provisions of this Agreement or terms and conditions substantially similar to and implementing the same restrictions and covenants as those set forth in this Agreement. PSI and Equifax agree to diligently monitor each such Representative, diligently enforce such agreements with its Representatives, and, upon request by the other party, promptly to furnish to the other party a certified list of the receiving party's Representatives having had access to such Company Information. (d) The covenants of confidentiality set forth in this Agreement (i) will apply after the Distribution Date to all Company Information disclosed to the receiving party before, on and after the Distribution Date and (ii) will continue and must be maintained from the Distribution Date through (A) with respect to Proprietary Information, the period during which the Proprietary Information constituting a part of the Company Information retains its status as a "trade secret" under applicable law; and (B) with respect to Confidential Information constituting a part of the Company Information, for the shorter of a period equal to three (3) years after the Distribution Date, or until such Confidentiality Information no longer qualifies as confidential under applicable law.

To the extent that any employee during or after employment violates any such agreement and such violation is or may in the future be to the detriment of the other Group, at the written request of the affected party, the other party shall, or shall cause the appropriate members of its Group to, promptly bring and diligently pursue an action against such employee if and to the extent reasonable under the circumstances to preserve the value of the assets and Licensed Materials.

Such enforcement against and recovery by a Group member from its breaching employee shall not constitute a release or sole remedy for the members of the other Group injured by such breaching employee's actions, and such members of the other Group may bring a claim against the Group members employing the breaching employee for a breach of this Agreement. Each party shall bear all out-of-pocket costs of pursuing such action and the other party shall cooperate in connection therewith. Section 9.4. Rights and Remedies. (a) If either party, or any member of the Group, should breach or threaten to breach any of the provisions of this Agreement, the non-breaching party, in addition to any other remedies it 25

may have at law or in equity, may seek a restraining order, injunction, or other similar remedy in order to specifically enforce the provisions of this Agreement. Each party specifically acknowledges, and shall cause each member of the Group to acknowledge, that money damages alone would be an inadequate remedy for the injuries and damage that would be suffered and incurred by the non- breaching party as a result of a breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement. In the event that either party, or a member of such party's Group, should seek an injunction hereunder, the other party hereby waives, and shall cause each member of its Group to waive, any requirement for the submission of proof of the economic value of any Company Information or the posting of a bond or any other security. In the event of a dispute between the parties, the non- prevailing party shall pay all costs and expenses associated with resolving the dispute, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees.

The receiving party shall be responsible for the acts of any Representative of its Group that are in violation of this Agreement. Section 9.5. Competitive Activities. (a) Subject to the rights and obligations set forth in Article IX, each party understands and acknowledges that the other party's Group may now market or have under development products that are competitive with products or services now offered or that may be offered by it and/or members of its Group, and the parties' communications hereunder will not serve to impair the right of either party, or any member of the Group, to independently develop, make, use, procure, or market products or services now or in the future that may be competitive with those offered by the other party's Group, nor require either party, and/or the members of its Group, to disclose any planning or other information to the other party. (b) Neither party will be restricted in using, in the development, manufacturing and marketing of its products and services and its operations, any data processing or network management or operation ideas, concepts, know-how and techniques which are retained in the minds of employees who have had access to the other party's Company Information subject to the restrictions set forth in this Agreement. Section 9.6. No Implied Rights. All Company Information is and shall remain the property of the disclosing party and/or the member's of its Group.

(h) Each grant shall specify the period or periods of continuous service by the Optionee with the Company or any Subsidiary that is necessary before the Option Rights or installments thereof will become exercisable and may provide for the earlier exercise of such Option Rights in the event of a Change in Control, retirement, death or disability of the Optionee or other similar transaction or event.

(l) The exercise of an Option Right shall result in the cancellation on a share-for-share basis of any Tandem Appreciation Right authorized under Section 5 of this Plan. (m) No Option Right shall be exercisable more than 10 years from the Date of Grant. (n) Each grant of Option Rights shall be evidenced by an agreement or other written notice from the Company by an officer and delivered to the Optionee and containing such terms and provisions, consistent with this Plan, as the Committee may approve. (o) Each Replacement Award shall reflect the adjustments provided for in the Employee Benefits Agreements and shall have the same material terms and conditions as the award it replaces under the Equifax Stock Incentive Plans, as determined by the Committee. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Plan to the contrary, no Replacement Award in substitution of an award that qualified as an Incentive Stock Option immediately before the grant of the Replacement Award shall contain any term that is more favorable than the terms of the substituted award. 5. Appreciation Rights. ------------------- (a) The Committee may authorize the granting (i) to any Optionee, of Tandem Appreciation Rights in respect of Option Rights granted hereunder, and (ii) to any Participant, of Free-Standing Appreciation Rights. A Tandem Appreciation Right shall be a right of the Optionee, exercisable by surrender of the related Option Right, to receive from the Company an amount determined by the Board, which shall be expressed as a percentage of the Spread (not exceeding 100 percent) at the time of exercise. Tandem Appreciation Rights may be granted at any time prior to the exercise or termination of the related Option Rights; provided, however, that a Tandem Appreciation Right awarded in relation to an Incentive Stock Option must be granted concurrently with such Incentive Stock Option. A Free-Standing Appreciation Right shall be a right of the Participant to receive from the Company an amount determined by the Committee, which shall be expressed as a percentage of the Spread (not exceeding 100 percent) at the time of exercise. (b) Each grant of Appreciation Rights may utilize any or all of the authorizations, and shall be subject to all of the requirements, contained in the following provisions: (i) Any grant may specify that the amount payable on exercise of an Appreciation Right may be paid by the Company in cash, in Common Shares or in any combination thereof and may either grant to the Participant or retain in the Committee the right to elect among those alternatives. (ii) Any grant may specify that the amount payable on exercise of an Appreciation Right may not exceed a maximum specified by the Committee at the Date of Grant. 7

(iii) Any grant may specify waiting periods before exercise and permissible exercise dates or periods. (iv) Any grant may specify that such Appreciation Right may be exercised only in the event of, or earlier in the event of, a Change in Control or other transaction or event. (v) Any grant may provide for the payment to the Participant of dividend equivalents thereon in cash or Common Shares on a current, deferred or contingent basis. (vi) Any grant of Appreciation Rights may specify Management Objectives that must be achieved as a condition of the exercise of such Rights. (vii) Each grant of Appreciation Rights shall be evidenced by an agreement executed on behalf of the Company by an officer and delivered to and accepted by the Participant, which agreement shall describe such Appreciation Rights, identify the related Option Rights (if applicable), state that such Appreciation Rights are subject to all the terms and conditions of this Plan, and contain such other terms and provisions, consistent with this Plan, as the Committee may approve. (c) Any grant of Tandem Appreciation Rights shall provide that such Rights may be exercised only at a time when the related Option Right is also exercisable and at a time when the Spread is positive, and by surrender of the related Option Right for cancellation.

Restricted Shares. The Committee may also authorize the grant or sale of Restricted Shares to Participants. Each such grant or sale may utilize any or all of the authorizations, and shall be subject to all of the requirements, contained in the following provisions: (a) Each such grant or sale shall constitute an immediate transfer of the ownership of Common Shares to the Participant in consideration of the performance of services, entitling such Participant to voting, dividend and other ownership rights, but subject to the substantial risk of forfeiture and restrictions on transfer hereinafter referred to. 8

(b) Each such grant or sale may be made without additional consideration or in consideration of a payment by such Participant that is less than Market Value per Share at the Date of Grant. (c) Each such grant or sale shall provide that the Restricted Shares covered by such grant or sale shall be subject to a "substantial risk of forfeiture" within the meaning of Section 83 of the Code for a period to be determined by the Committee at the Date of Grant and may provide for the earlier lapse of such substantial risk of forfeiture in the event of a Change in Control or other transaction or event; provided, however, that the Restricted Shares covered by any Replacement Award shall be subject to a "substantial risk of forfeiture" for the period provided in the award it replaced, as determined by the Committee. (d) Each such grant or sale shall provide that during the period for which such substantial risk of forfeiture is to continue, the transferability of the Restricted Shares shall be prohibited or restricted in the manner and to the extent prescribed by the Board at the Date of Grant (which restrictions may include, without limitation, rights of repurchase or first refusal in the Company or provisions subjecting the Restricted Shares to a continuing substantial risk of forfeiture in the hands of any transferee). (e) Any grant of Restricted Shares may specify Management Objectives that, if achieved, will result in termination or early termination of the restrictions applicable to such shares. Each grant may specify in respect of such Management Objectives a minimum acceptable level of achievement and may set forth a formula for determining the number of Restricted Shares on which restrictions will terminate if performance is at or above the minimum level, but falls short of full achievement of the specified Management Objectives. (f) Any grant or sale of Restricted Shares may require that any or all dividends or other distributions paid thereon during the period of such restrictions be automatically deferred and reinvested in additional Restricted Shares, which may be subject to the same restrictions as the underlying award.

Deferred Shares. The Committee may also authorize the granting or sale --------------- of Deferred Shares to Participants. Each such grant or sale may utilize any or all of the authorizations, and shall be subject to all of the requirements contained in the following provisions: (a) Each such grant or sale shall constitute the agreement by the Company to deliver Common Shares to the Participant in the future in consideration of the performance of services, 9

but subject to the fulfillment of such conditions during the Deferral Period as the Committee may specify. (b) Each such grant or sale may be made without additional consideration or in consideration of a payment by such Participant that is less than the Market Value per Share at the Date of Grant. (c) Each such grant or sale shall be subject to a Deferral Period of not less than one year, as determined by the Committee at the Date of Grant, and may provide for the earlier lapse or other modification of such Deferral Period in the event of a Change in Control, or other transaction or event. (d) During the Deferral Period, the Participant shall have no right to transfer any rights under his or her award and shall have no rights of ownership in the Deferred Shares and shall have no right to vote them, but the Committee may, at or after the Date of Grant, authorize the payment of dividend equivalents on such Shares on either a current or deferred or contingent basis, either in cash or in additional Common Shares. (e) Each grant or sale of Deferred Shares shall be evidenced by an agreement executed on behalf of the Company by any officer and delivered to and accepted by the Participant and shall contain such terms and provisions, consistent with this Plan, as the Committee may approve. 8.

(a) Each grant of Option Rights awarded pursuant to this Section 8 shall be upon terms and conditions consistent with Section 4 of this Plan and shall be evidenced by an agreement in such form as shall be approved by the Committee. Each grant shall specify an Option Price per share, which shall not be less than the Market Value per Share on the Date of Grant. Each such Option Right granted under the Plan shall expire not more than 10 years from the Date of Grant and shall be subject to earlier termination as hereinafter provided. Unless otherwise determined by the Committee, such Option Rights shall be subject to the following additional terms and conditions: (i) Each grant shall specify the number of Common Shares to which it pertains subject to the limitations set forth in Section 3 of this plan. (ii) In the event of the death or disability of the holder of any such Option Rights, each of the then outstanding vested Option Rights of such holder may be exercised at any time within a stated period after such death or disability, as provided by the Committee in the grant, but in no event after the expiration date of the term of such Option Rights. (iii) If a Non-Employee Director subsequently becomes an employee of the Company or a Subsidiary while remaining a member of the Board, any Option Rights 10

held under the Plan by such individual at the time of such commencement of employment shall not be affected thereby. (iv) Option Rights may be exercised by a Non-Employee Director only upon payment to the Company in full of the Option Price of the Common Shares to be delivered. Such payment shall be made in cash or in Common Shares then owned by the optionee for at least six months, or in a combination of cash and such Common Shares. (v) Any grant may provide for deferred payment of the Option Price from the proceeds of sale through a bank or broker on a date satisfactory to the Company of some or all of the shares to which such exercise relates. (b) Each grant or sale of Restricted Shares pursuant to this Section 8 shall be upon terms and conditions consistent with Section 6 of this Plan. 9. Transferability. --------------- (a) Except as otherwise determined by the Committee, no Option Right, Appreciation Right or other derivative security granted under the Plan shall be transferable by a Participant other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution. Except as otherwise determined by the Committee, Option Rights and Appreciation Rights shall be exercisable during the Optionee's lifetime only by him or her or by his or her guardian or legal representative. (b) The Committee may specify at the Date of Grant that part or all of the Common Shares that are (i) to be issued or transferred by the Company upon the exercise of Option Rights or Appreciation Rights, or upon the termination of the Deferral Period applicable to Deferred Shares or (ii) no longer subject to the substantial risk of forfeiture and restrictions on transfer referred to in Section 6 of this Plan, shall be subject to further restrictions on transfer. (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9(a), the Committee may provide that any grant of Option Rights (other than Incentive Stock Options), Appreciation Rights, Restricted Shares, and Deferred Shares shall be transferable by a Participant, without payment of consideration therefor by the transferee, to any one or more members of the Participant's Immediate Family (or to one or more trusts established solely for the benefit of one or more members of the Participant's Immediate Family or to one or more partnerships in which the only partners are members of the Participant's Immediate Family); provided, however, that (i) no such transfer shall be effective unless reasonable prior notice thereof is delivered to the Company and the Committee and such transfer is thereafter effected in accordance with any terms and conditions that shall have been made applicable thereto by the Company or the Committee and (ii) any such transferee shall be subject to the same terms and conditions hereunder as the Participant. 10. Adjustments. The Committee may make or provide for such adjustments ----------- in the numbers of Common Shares covered by outstanding Option Rights, Appreciation Rights and Deferred Shares granted hereunder, and in the Option Price and Base Price, and in the kind of shares covered thereby, as the Committee, in its sole discretion, exercised in good faith, may determine is equitably required to prevent dilution or enlargement of the rights of Participants or Optionees that otherwise would result from (a) any stock dividend, stock split, combination of 11

shares, recapitalization or other change in the capital structure of the Company, or (b) any merger, consolidation, spin-off, split-off, spin-out, split- up, reorganization, partial or complete liquidation or other distribution of assets, issuance of rights or warrants to purchase securities, or (c) any other corporate transaction or event having an effect similar to any of the foregoing. Moreover, in the event of any such transaction or event, the Committee, in its discretion, may provide in substitution for any or all outstanding awards under this Plan such alternative consideration as it, in good faith, may determine to be equitable in the circumstances and may require in connection therewith the surrender of all awards so replaced. The Committee may also make or provide for such adjustments in the numbers of shares specified in Section 3 of this Plan as the Committee in its sole discretion, exercised in good faith, may determine is appropriate to reflect any transaction or event described in this Section 10; provided, however, that any such adjustment to the number specified in Section 3(c)(i) shall be made only if and to the extent that such adjustment would not cause any Option intended to qualify as an Incentive Stock Option to fail so to qualify, and the Committee may take into consideration, as to any award subject to a proposed adjustment, the potential adverse effect thereof under applicable tax or other laws, and may adjust such awards inconsistently as a consequence of those effects. 11.

To the extent that the Company is required to ----------------- withhold federal, state, local or foreign taxes in connection with any payment made or benefit realized by a Participant or other person under this Plan, and the amounts available to the Company for such withholding are insufficient, it shall be a condition to the receipt of such payment or the realization of such benefit that the Participant or such other person make arrangements satisfactory to the Company and the Committee for payment of the balance of such taxes required to be withheld, which arrangements (in the discretion of the Committee) may include relinquishment of a portion of such benefit. With the consent of the Committee, a Participant or such other person may also make similar arrangements with respect to the payment of any taxes with respect to which withholding is not required. 14. Foreign Employees. In order to facilitate the making of any grant or ----------------- combination of grants under this Plan, the Committee may provide for such special terms for awards to Participants who are foreign nationals or who are employed by the Company or any Subsidiary outside of the United States of America as the Committee may consider necessary or appropriate to accommodate differences in local law, tax policy or custom, which special terms may be contained in an Appendix attached hereto. Moreover, the Committee may approve such supplements to or amendments, restatements or alternative versions of this Plan as it may consider necessary or appropriate for such purposes, without thereby affecting the terms of this Plan as in effect for any other purpose, and the Secretary or other appropriate officer of the Company may certify any such document as having been approved and adopted in the same manner as this Plan. No such special terms, supplements, amendments or restatements, however, shall include any provisions that are inconsistent with the terms of this Plan as then in effect unless this Plan could have been amended to eliminate such inconsistency without further approval by the shareholders of the Company. 15. Administration of the Plan. -------------------------- (a) This Plan shall be administered by the Committee. A majority of the Committee shall constitute a quorum, and the action of the members of the Committee present at any meeting at which a quorum is present, or acts unanimously approved in writing, shall be the acts of the Committee. Except as the Board may otherwise determine, so long as the Company's outstanding Common Shares are owned by Equifax Inc., all matters relating to Awards under the Plan shall be, and hereby are, delegated to the Compensation and Human Resources Committee of Equifax Inc., provided that all actions taken shall be subject to the approval of the Board.

In the event of such delegation, and as to matters encompassed by the delegation, references in the Plan to the Committee shall be interpreted as a reference to the Committee's delegate or delegates. The Committee may revoke or amend the terms of a 14

delegation at any time but such action shall not invalidate any prior actions of the Committee's delegate or delegates that were consistent with the terms of the Plan. (c) The interpretation and construction by the Committee of any provision of this Plan or of any agreement, notification or document evidencing the grant of Option Rights, Appreciation Rights, Restricted Shares, or Deferred Shares, and any determination by the Committee pursuant to any provision of this Plan or of any such agreement, notification or document shall be final and conclusive. No member of the Committee shall be liable for any such action or determination made in good faith. 16. Amendments, Etc. --------------- (a) The Committee may at any time and from time to time amend the Plan in whole or in part; provided, however, that any amendment which must be approved by the shareholders of the Company in order to comply with applicable law or the rules of the New York Stock Exchange or, if the Common Shares are not traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the principal national securities exchange upon which the Common Shares are traded or quoted, shall not be effective unless and until such approval has been obtained. Presentation of this Plan or any amendment hereof for shareholder approval shall not be construed to limit the Company's authority to offer similar or dissimilar benefits under other plans without shareholder approval. No amendment shall, without a Participant's consent, adversely affect any rights of any Participant with respect to any award outstanding at the time such amendment is made. No amendment to this Plan shall become effective until shareholder approval is obtained if (i) the amendment increases the aggregate number of Common Shares that may be issued under the Plan, (ii) the amendment changes the class of individuals eligible to become Participants, or (iii) the amendment extends the duration of the Plan. (b) The Committee shall not, without the further approval of the shareholders of the Company, authorize the amendment of any outstanding Option Right to reduce the Option Price. Furthermore, no Option Right shall be canceled and replaced with awards having a lower Option Price without further approval of the shareholders of the Company. This Section 16(b) is intended to prohibit the repricing of "underwater" Option Rights and shall not be construed to prohibit the adjustments provided for in Section 10 of this Plan. (c) The Committee also may permit Participants to elect to defer the issuance of Common Shares or the settlement of awards in cash under the Plan pursuant to such rules, procedures or programs as it may establish for purposes of this Plan. The Committee also may provide that deferred issuances and settlements include the payment or crediting of dividend equivalents or interest on the deferral amounts. (d) The Committee may condition the grant of any award or combination of awards authorized under this Plan on the surrender or deferral by the Participant of his or her right to receive a cash bonus or other compensation otherwise payable by the Company or a Subsidiary to the Participant. (e) In case of termination of employment by reason of death, disability or normal or early retirement, or in the case of hardship or other special circumstances, of a Participant who 15

holds an Option Right or Appreciation Right not immediately exercisable in full, or any Restricted Shares as to which the substantial risk of forfeiture or the prohibition or restriction on transfer has not lapsed, or any Deferred Shares as to which the Deferral Period has not been completed, or who holds Common Shares subject to any transfer restriction imposed pursuant to Section 9(b) of this Plan, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the time at which such Option Right or Appreciation Right may be exercised or the time at which such substantial risk of forfeiture or prohibition or restriction on transfer will lapse or the time when such Deferral Period will end or the time when such transfer restriction will terminate or may waive any other limitation or requirement under any such award. (f) This Plan shall not confer upon any Participant any right with respect to continuance of employment or other service with the Company or any Subsidiary, nor shall it interfere in any way with the right of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate such Participant's employment or other service at any time. (g) To the extent that any provision of this Plan would prevent any Option Right that was intended to qualify as an Incentive Stock Option from qualifying as such, that provision shall be null and void with respect to such Option Right. Such provision, however, shall remain in effect for other Option Rights and there shall be no further effect on any provision of this Plan. 17. Termination. No grant shall be made under this Plan more than 10 ----------- years after the date on which this Plan is first approved by the Board of Directors of the Company, but all grants made on or prior to such date shall continue in effect thereafter subject to the terms thereof and of this Plan. The Committee may terminate the Plan at any time provided that such termination shall not adversely affect the rights of any Participant or beneficiary under any Award granted prior to the date of such termination. 16

A portion, or all, of each Award shall be forfeited and canceled in all respects, and no cash shall be delivered or paid with respect to the portion of such Award so forfeited and canceled, in the event that the goals established for the Measurement Period are not achieved, all as prescribed by the Committee. The Committee shall deliver to each Participant written notice of the goals established for the Measurement Period to which said Award relates, along with the forfeiture provisions relating to said Award. Even though performance goals established for each Measurement Period are met or exceeded, the Committee shall have the discretion, as to each Participant, to reduce the amount of an Award that would otherwise be paid or to determine that no portion should be paid. The Committee may not increase the amount of an Award that would otherwise be paid. (d) Nothing contained in this Article VI or elsewhere in this Plan shall eliminate, impair or otherwise affect the right of the Employer to terminate or change the employment of any Eligible Executive at any time, and the grant of an Award to any such Eligible Executive shall not be deemed to, and shall not, result in any agreement, expressed or implied, by the Employer to retain such person in any specific position or in its employ for the duration of the Measurement Period with respect to such Award or for any other period. 4

(e) Subject to the provisions of this paragraph, the terms of an Award may provide, if the Committee so directs in each instance, that each Participant may elect, by delivering written notice of such election to the Secretary of the Company during the period defined below, to surrender his or her right to receive up to the full value of the Award that would otherwise be paid to the Participant at the end of the Measurement Period, in exchange for the right to receive an equity interest as described below. In order to be effective, such written notice of election must be delivered to the Secretary of the Company during a period beginning on the third business day following release for publication (in the manner hereinafter set forth) of the Company's quarterly statements of sales and earnings for the final fiscal quarter ending within the Measurement Period and ending on the twelfth business day following said release for publication. Any such election shall be subject to the right of the Committee to disapprove the same, in whole or in part, at any time after such election but prior to the issuance of cash with respect to the particular Award in accordance with the provisions of this Plan. In the event of the death, disability or retirement of a Participant, at any time during the Measurement Period to which an Award relates, the Award shall be distributed as provided in Article VII hereof regardless of any election made by such Participant. The release for publication of the Company's quarterly statements as referred to in the second sentence of this paragraph shall be deemed to have been made at the time such data appears (i) on a wire service, (ii) in a financial news service, (iii) in a newspaper of general circulation or (iv) is otherwise made publicly available. For purposes of this paragraph, the determination of the appropriate equity interest into which the cash award is converted shall be made based on rules adopted by the Committee and uniformly applied, and said rules shall be adopted prior to or at the time of the grant of the Award in question, and the aggregate value of the cash portion and the value of the equity interest for any individual, determined at the date of grant, shall not exceed the maximum referred to in Article V. The equity interest may be an option for purchase of Common Stock, restricted shares of Common Stock, or any other equity interest determined by the Committee. The equity interest may be issued by the Committee on its own action or pursuant to the Company's 2001 Stock Incentive Plan or any such other stock incentive plan as the Committee deems appropriate. ARTICLE VII Death, Disability or Retirement of Eligible Executive ----------------------------------------------------- or Change in Control of the Company ----------------------------------- 7.1 In the event of the termination of employment with the Employer during any Measurement Period of any Participant by reason of the death or disability or retirement of such Participant, the Committee may, but shall not be obligated to, waive the continuation of the employment requirement set forth in section 6.1(a)(i) above. In the event that such requirement is waived, such Participant or his estate, as the case may be, will be entitled to receive an Award in cash equivalent to a pro rata portion of the amount which said Participant would have received, if the employment of such Participant had continued through the Measurement Period for such Award. For purposes of Article VI and this Article VII, a Participant shall not be deemed to have terminated his employment although he retires from said employment, if he continues to serve as 5

an elected officer of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and to serve as a Director of the Company; said Eligible Executive shall be deemed to have terminated his employment when his term of office expires and he is not re- elected thereto, or when he is removed or resigns from office, if earlier. 7.2 This pro rata portion shall be computed as follows: The cash Award which would have been earned based on the level of actual achievement of the Management Objective at the end of the Measurement Period will be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of full calendar months during the Measurement Period prior to the Participant's death, disability or retirement, and the denominator of which shall be the number of full calendar months contained in the complete Measurement Period. 7.3 In the event of the termination of employment with the Employer of any Participant after completing a Measurement Period, but before distribution of his Award is made, such Participant or his estate, as the case may be, will be entitled to receive the Award to the same extent, in the same manner and at the same time as if the employment of such Eligible Executive had not terminated, except that if the Participant has directly or indirectly engaged in any activity that is harmful to the Company or the Employer, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion (including without limitation the disclosure or misuse of any confidential information or trade secrets of the Company or the Employer), then Participant shall forfeit any entitlement to such Award. 7.4 If there is a "change in control of the Company," as hereinafter defined, during any Measurement Period, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Plan to the contrary, any Participant holding any Award shall be irrevocably entitled to receive an amount in cash which is equal to (i) the target award if the change in control occurs during the first measurement year, or (ii) 150% of the target award if the change in control occurs after said first year (but no less than the projected payout determined on the effective date of the change in control if the change in control occurs during the last three months of the Measurement Period). Such payment will be made within sixty (60) days following the change in control of the Company. 7.5 For purposes of this Article VII, a "change in control of the Company" shall be deemed to have occurred upon the occurrence of any of the following events: (a) Voting Stock Accumulations. The accumulation by any Person of Beneficial Ownership of twenty percent (20%) or more of the combined voting power of the Company's Voting Stock; provided that for purposes of this Section 7.5, a Change in Control will not be deemed to have occurred if the accumulation of twenty percent (20%) or more of the voting power of the Company's Voting Stock results from any acquisition of Voting Stock (i) directly from the Company that is approved by the Incumbent Board, (ii) by the Company, (iii) by any employee benefit plan (or related trust) sponsored or maintained by the Company or any Subsidiary, or (iv) by any Person pursuant to a Business Combination that complies with all of the provisions of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) of subparagraph 7.5(b); or (b) Business Combinations.

Additionally, a Participant who makes a second payment election under subsection (a)(2) shall be permitted to make a payment form election at the same time he or she makes the second election under subsection (a)(2). The Participant may choose to have the Account paid either in a lump sum (within 90 days of the distribution date determined under subsection (a)) or in a series of annual installments over a fixed number of years (not to exceed ten years). (2) Limitation on Elections. A Participant shall be permitted ----------------------- to elect a different payment form for amounts that are distributable as of different payment dates under subsection (a). (3) Transferred Benefits.

In the event that 8

the Participant has made more than one such election, the most recent election filed with the plan administrator but no more than 12 months prior to the date payments are to commence will control. (c) Discretion of Committee.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, EQUIFAX PS, INC. has caused this instrument to be executed by its duly authorized officer, effective as of the date specified above. EQUIFAX PS, INC.

EXHIBIT 10.11 [Date] [Name] [Title] [Address] Dear __________: Equifax PS, Inc. (the "Company") considers the establishment and maintenance of a sound and vital management to be essential to protecting and enhancing the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. In this connection, the Company recognizes that, as is the case with many publicly held corporations, the possibility of a change in control exists and that possibility, and the uncertainty and questions that it may raise among management, may result in the departure or distraction of management personnel to the detriment of the Company and its shareholders. Accordingly, the Board of Directors of the Company has determined that appropriate steps should be taken to reinforce and encourage the continued attention and dedication of members of the Company's management, including yourself, to their assigned duties without distraction in the face of potentially disturbing circumstances arising from the possibility of a change in control of the Company. In order to induce you to remain in its employ, the Company agrees to provide you the payments and benefits described in this Letter (in lieu of any severance payments and benefits you would otherwise receive in accordance with the Company's severance pay practices) if your employment with the Company is terminated subsequent to a "Change in Control" of the Company (as defined in paragraph 3) under the circumstances described in paragraph 4. 1. No Right to Continued Employment. This Letter does not give you any right -------------------------------- to continued employment by the Company or a Subsidiary, and it will not interfere in any way with the right the Company or a Subsidiary otherwise may have to terminate your employment at any time. 2. Term of This Letter. The terms of this Letter will be effective as of ------------------- __________, 2001, and, except as otherwise provided in this Letter, will continue in effect until _____________, 2006; provided that commencing on January 1, 2002

Page 2 and each subsequent January 1, the terms of this Letter will be extended automatically so as to remain in effect for five (5) years from that January 1 unless at least sixty (60) days prior to January 1 of a given year, the Company notifies you that it does not wish to continue this Letter in effect beyond its then current expiration date; and provided further that if a Change in Control occurs prior to the expiration of this Letter, this Letter will continue in effect for two (2) years from the Change in Control. 3. Change In Control. No benefits will be payable under this Letter unless ----------------- there is a Change in Control and your employment by the Company is terminated under the circumstances described in paragraph 4 entitling you to benefits.

Page 9 5.3 Additional Retirement Benefit. If you are a participant in the ----------------------------- Company's U.S. Retirement Income Plan (the "Retirement Plan"), the Company will pay you on the fifth (5th) business day following the Date of Termination a lump sum retirement benefit, in addition to the benefits to which you are or would be entitled under the Retirement Plan. That benefit will be a lump sum amount that is the actuarial equivalent of your benefits calculated pursuant to the terms of the Retirement Plan with the following adjustments: (a) regardless of your Years of Vesting Service under the Retirement Plan, you will be treated as if you were 100% vested under the Retirement Plan, (b) the number of Years of Benefit Service used will be the actual number of Years of Benefit Service accumulated as of the Date of Termination plus an additional number of Years of Benefit Service (up to a maximum of five (5) additional years) equal to the number of additional Years of Benefit Service that you would have earned if you had remained an employee of the Company until attainment of age sixty-two (62), (c) the Final Average Earnings (for purposes of applying the benefit formula under the Retirement Plan) will be determined using (I) the highest monthly rate of Base Salary in effect during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the Date of Termination, plus (II) the higher of (A) the highest annual bonus paid to you or paid but deferred on your behalf under the Plan, (B) any earned, but unpaid, bonus accrued for your benefit under the Plan, or (C) your highest target annual bonus under the Plan, whether or not earned, in each case with respect to the three (3) calendar years immediately preceding the Date of Termination and the partial calendar year ending on the Date of Termination, divided by twelve (12) (regardless of the earnings limitations under the Retirement Plan or governmental regulations applicable to those plans), and (d) the monthly retirement benefit so calculated will be reduced by an amount equal to the monthly retirement benefit payable to you under the Retirement Plan. All capitalized terms used in this subparagraph, unless otherwise defined, will have the same meanings as those terms are defined in the Retirement Plan. The actuarial equivalent will be calculated based on the assumptions contained in the Retirement Plan on the Date of Termination; provided that the assumptions on which the actuarial equivalent will be calculated will be no less favorable to you than those assumptions contained in the Retirement Plan on the date of the Change in Control. 5.4 Benefit Plans. ------------- (a) Unless your employment is terminated for Cause, the Company will maintain in full force and effect, for your continued benefit for two

Page 10 (2) years after your Date of Termination, the group health, dental, vision, life insurance. disability and similar coverages in which you are entitled to participate immediately prior to the Date of Termination at the same level as for active employees and in the same manner as if your employment had not terminated. Any additional coverages you had at termination, including dependent coverage, will also be continued for that period on the same terms, to the extent permitted by the applicable policies or contracts. You will be responsible for paying any costs you were paying for those coverages at the time of termination by separate check payable to the Company each month in advance. If the terms of any benefit plan referred to in this subparagraph 5.4(a), or the laws applicable to that plan do not permit your continued participation, then the Company will arrange for other coverages satisfactory to you at the Company's expense that provide substantially similar benefits, or the Company will pay you a lump sum amount equal to the costs you would have to pay to obtain those coverage(s) for the three-year period. (b) If you have satisfied the requirements for receiving the Company's retiree medical coverage on your Date of Termination or will satisfy those requirements prior to the last day of the two-year benefit continuation period provided in item (a) above, you (and your dependents) will be covered by, and receive benefits under, the Company's retiree medical coverage program for employees at your level. Your retiree medical coverage will commence on the date your health care coverage terminates under item (a) above, and will continue for your life (i.e., the coverage will be vested and may not be terminated), subject only to those changes in the level of coverage that apply to employees at your level generally. (c) You will be entitled to continue to participate in the Company's 401(k) Retirement and Savings Plan for the two-year period after your Date of Termination. For purposes of the 401(k) Plan, you will receive an amount equal to the Company's contributions to the 401(k) Plan, assuming you had made contributions to the 401(k) Plan at the maximum permissible level. If the Company cannot contribute those additional amounts to the 401(k) Plan on your behalf because of the terms of the 401(k) Plan or applicable law, the Company will pay to you within five (5) days of the Date of Termination a lump sum amount equal to the additional amounts the Company would have been

Page 11 required to contribute (based upon the terms of the 401(k) Plan as in effect on the Date of Termination). 5.5 No Mitigation Required. You will not be required to mitigate the ---------------------- amount of any payment or benefits provided for in this paragraph 5 by seeking other employment or otherwise, nor will the amount of any payment or benefits provided for in this paragraph 5 be reduced by any compensation earned by you, or benefits provided to you, as the result of employment by another employer after the Date of Termination, or otherwise. 5.6 Tax Gross-Up Payment. If any payments or benefits provided pursuant -------------------- to this Letter or any other payments or benefits provided to you by the Company are subject to an excise tax on an "excess parachute payment" under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code"), or any successor provision of the Code, or are subject to an excise or penalty tax under any similar provision of any other revenue system to which you may be subject, the Company will provide a gross-up payment to you in order to place you in the same after-tax position you would have been in had no excise or penalty tax become due and payable under Code Section 4999 (or any successor provision) or any similar provision of that other revenue system. That gross-up payment will not apply to any excise or penalty tax attributable to any incentive stock option granted to you by the Company or Equifax Inc. prior to April 1, 1998. Any gross-up payment to which you are entitled as a result of the applicability of an excise tax under Code Section 4999 or any successor provision of the Code, or as a result of any excise or penalty tax under any similar provision of any other revenue system to which you may be subject, will be determined in accordance with a "Policy with Respect to Tax Gross-up Payments" adopted, or which will be adopted, by the Board of Directors (or a Committee of the Board), and once that policy is adopted, no amendment of that policy that adversely affects you will be effective with respect to your rights under this Letter without your written consent. 6. Successors: Binding Agreement. ----------------------------- 6.1 Assumption by Company's Successor. The Company will require any --------------------------------- successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company, by agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to you, to expressly assume and agree to perform this Letter. Failure of the

Page 12 Company to obtain that agreement prior to the effectiveness of any succession will be a breach of this Letter and will entitle you to compensation from the Company in the same amount and on the same terms as you would be entitled under this Letter if you terminated your employment for Good Reason within two (2) years following a Change in Control, except that for purposes of implementing the foregoing, the date on which that succession becomes effective will be deemed the Date of Termination. As used in this Letter, "Company" means Equifax PS, Inc. and any successor to its business and/or assets that executes and delivers the agreement provided for in this subparagraph 6.1 or that otherwise becomes bound by all the terms and provisions of this Letter by operation of law. 6.2 Enforcement by Your Successor. This Letter will inure to the benefit ----------------------------- of and be enforceable by your personal or legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, heirs, distributees, devisees and legatees. If you die subsequent to the termination of your employment while any amount would still be payable to you pursuant to this Letter if you had continued to live, all those amounts, unless otherwise provided in this Letter, will be paid in accordance with the terms of this Letter to your devisee, legatee or other designee or, if there be no designee, to your estate; that payment to be made in a lump sum within sixty (60) days from the date of your death. 7.

Modification and Waiver. No provision of this Letter may be modified, ----------------------- waived or discharged unless that waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing by you and that officer as may be specifically designated by the Board of Directors of the Company. No waiver by either party at any time of any breach by the other party of, or compliance with, any condition or provision of this Letter to be performed by that other party will be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at the time or at any prior or subsequent time.

This Letter supersedes (a) any oral agreement between you and ------------ the Company and any oral representation by the Company to you with respect to the subject matter of this Letter, and (b) that letter agreement dated __________, ____ between you and Equifax Inc. pertaining to change in control. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Letter will be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia. 10. Severability.

If any of the events described in --------------------------------------- paragraph 3 constituting a Change in Control occurs, you will be entitled to the payments and benefits provided for in paragraph 5 if your employment is terminated within six (6) months prior to the Change in Control in connection with the Change in Control or your employment is terminated within three (3) years from the date of the Change in Control, unless your termination is (a) because of your death, (b) by the Company for Cause or Disability, or (c) by you other than for Good Reason. The payments and benefits provided for in paragraph 5 will be in lieu of any severance payments you would otherwise receive in accordance with the Company's severance pay practices, but will have no effect on any of the Company's other employee benefit plans or practices, as amended from time to time. 4.1 Cause. Termination by the Company of your employment for "Cause" ----- means termination by the Company of your employment upon (a) your willful and continued failure to substantially perform your duties with the Company (other than any failure resulting from your incapacity due to physical or mental illness), after a written demand for substantial performance is delivered to you by the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (or if you are the Chief Executive Officer, the Chairman of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors) that specifically identifies the manner in which the Chief Executive Officer believes that you have not substantially performed your duties, or (b) your willfully engaging in misconduct that is materially injurious to the Company, monetarily or otherwise. For purposes of this subparagraph 4.1, no act, or failure to act, on your part will be considered "willful" unless done, or omitted to be done,

by you not in good faith and without reasonable belief that your action or omission was in the best interest of the Company. Notwithstanding the above, you will not be deemed to have been terminated for Cause unless and until you have been given a copy of a Notice of Termination from the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (or if you are the Chief Executive Officer, the Chairman of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors), after reasonable notice to you and an opportunity for you, together with your counsel, to be heard before (i) the Chief Executive Officer, or (ii) if you are an elected officer of the Company, the Board of Directors of the Company, finding that in the good faith opinion of the Chief Executive Officer, or, in the case of an elected officer, finding that in the good faith opinion of two-thirds of the Board of Directors, you committed the conduct set forth above in clauses (a) or (b) of this subparagraph 4.1, and specifying the particulars of that finding in detail. 4.2 Disability. Termination by the Company of your employment for ---------- "Disability" means termination by the Company of your employment following and because of your failure to perform your duties as an employee for a period of at least one hundred eighty (180) consecutive calendar days as a result of total and permanent incapacity due to physical or mental illness or injury. Your incapacity must be certified by a licensed medical doctor selected by you. You will continue to receive your full base salary at the rate in effect and any bonus payments under the Plan payable during the one hundred eighty (180) day qualification period until termination of your employment for Disability. After that termination, your benefits will be determined in accordance with the Company's long-term disability plan then in effect and any of the Company's other benefit plans and practices then in effect that apply to you. The Company will have no further obligation to you under this Letter and all supplemental benefits will be terminated. If the Company disagrees with the certification of your incapacity, it may appoint another medical doctor to certify his opinion as to your incapacity, and if that doctor does not certify as to your incapacity, then the two doctors will appoint a third medical doctor to certify their opinion as to your incapacity, and the decision of a majority of the three doctors will prevail. (The Company will bear the costs of the doctors opinions.) 4.3 Good Reason. Termination by you of your employment for "Good Reason" ----------- means termination by you of your employment based on: (a) The assignment to you of duties inconsistent with your position and status with the Company as they existed immediately prior to the

Change in Control Date (as defined below), or a substantial change in your title, offices or authority, or in the nature of your responsibilities, as they existed immediately prior to the Change in Control Date (or if you receive a promotion or an increase in responsibilities or authority after the Change in Control Date, then a change with respect to your enhanced position, status, responsibilities or authority), except in connection with the termination of your employment for Cause or Disability or as a result of your death or by you other than for Good Reason; (b) A reduction by the Company in your base salary as in effect on the date of this Letter or as your salary may be increased from time to time; (c) A failure by the Company to continue the Company's incentive compensation plan(s) ("Incentive Plan"), as it may be modified from time to time, substantially in the form in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control Date, or a failure by the Company to continue you as a participant in the Incentive Plan on at least the basis of your participation immediately prior to the Change in Control Date or to pay you the amounts that you would be entitled to receive in accordance with the Incentive Plan; (d) The Company's requiring you to be based more than thirty-five (35) miles from the location where you are based immediately prior to the Change in Control Date, except for required travel on the Company's business to an extent substantially consistent with your business travel obligations prior to the Change in Control Date, or if you consent to that relocation, the failure by the Company to pay (or reimburse you for) all reasonable moving expenses incurred by you or to indemnify you against any loss realized in the sale of your principal residence in connection with that relocation; (e) The failure by the Company to continue in effect any retirement or compensation plan, supplemental retirement plan, performance share plan, stock option plan, life insurance plan, health and accident plan, disability plan or any other benefit plan in which you are participating immediately prior to the Change in Control Date (or provide plans providing you with substantially similar benefits), the taking of any action by the Company that would adversely affect your participation or materially reduce your benefits under any of those

plans or deprive you of any material fringe benefit enjoyed by you immediately prior to the Change in Control Date, or the failure by the Company to provide you with the number of paid vacation days to which you are then entitled in accordance with the Company's normal vacation practices in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control Date; (f) The failure by the Company to obtain the assumption of the agreement to perform this Letter by any successor, as contemplated in paragraph 6; or (g) Any purported termination of your employment that is not effected pursuant to a Notice of Termination satisfying the requirements of subparagraph 4.4 (and, if applicable, subparagraph 4.1). For purposes of this subparagraph 4.3, "Change in Control Date" means the date six months prior to the date of the Change in Control. 4.4 Notice of Termination. Any purported termination by the Company --------------------- pursuant to subparagraphs 4.1 or 4.2 or by you pursuant to subparagraph 4.3 will be communicated by written Notice of Termination to the other party. For purposes of this Letter, a "Notice of Termination" means a notice that indicates the specific termination provision in this Letter relied upon and setting forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances claimed to provide a basis for termination of your employment under the provision so indicated. Any purported termination not effected pursuant to a Notice of Termination meeting the requirements set forth in this Letter will not be effective. 4.5 Date of Termination. For purposes of this Letter, the date of the ------------------- termination of your employment ("Date of Termination") will be (a) if your employment is terminated by your death, the end of the month in which your death occurs, (b) if your employment is terminated for Disability, thirty (30) days after Notice of Termination is given, or (c) if your employment is terminated by you or the Company for any other reason, the date specified in the Notice of Termination, which will not be later than thirty (30) days after the date on which the Notice of Termination is given. 5. Benefits upon Certain Terminations following a Change in Control. If any of ---------------------------------------------------------------- the events described in paragraph 3 constituting a Change in Control occurs and

your employment is terminated under the circumstances described in paragraph 4 which entitle you to payments and benefits under this paragraph 5, then the following provisions will apply: 5.1 Compensation through Date of Termination. The Company will pay you ---------------------------------------- (a) any unpaid amount of your base salary through the Date of Termination, (b) with respect to any year then completed, any unpaid amount accrued to you pursuant to the Incentive Plan, and (c) with respect to any year then partially completed, a pro rata portion through the Date of Termination of your target annual bonus under the Incentive Plan. For purposes of item (c) above, your "target annual bonus under the Incentive Plan" will be your annual base salary as of the Date of Termination multiplied by the target percentage of your bonus under the Incentive Plan. 5.2 Additional Severance. In lieu of any further salary payments to you -------------------- for periods subsequent to the Date of Termination, the Company will pay as severance pay to you on the fifth (5th) business day following the Date of Termination a lump sum equal to three (3) times the sum of (a) your annual base salary at the highest rate in effect during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the Date of Termination plus (b) the higher of (i) the highest annual bonus paid to you or paid but deferred on your behalf under the Incentive Plan, (ii) any earned, but unpaid, bonus accrued for your benefit under the Incentive Plan, or (iii) your highest target annual bonus under the Incentive Plan, whether or not earned, in each case with respect to the three (3) calendar years immediately preceding the year in which the Date of Termination occurs and the partial calendar year ending on the Date of Termination. For purposes of item (iii) above and subparagraph 5.3, the "highest target annual bonus under the Incentive Plan" for the partial calendar year ending on the Date of Termination will be your annual base salary as of the Date of Termination multiplied by the target percentage of your bonus under the Incentive Plan. 5.3 Additional Retirement Benefit. If you are a participant in the ----------------------------- Company's U.S. Retirement Income Plan (the "Retirement Plan"), the Company will pay you on the fifth (5th) business day following the Date of Termination a lump sum retirement benefit, in addition to the benefits to which you are or would be entitled under the Retirement Plan. That benefit will be a lump sum amount that is the actuarial equivalent of your benefits calculated pursuant to the terms of the Retirement Plan with the following adjustments: (a) regardless of your Years of Vesting Service under the Retirement Plan, you will be treated as if you were 100% vested under the

Retirement Plan, (b) the number of Years of Benefit Service used will be the actual number of Years of Benefit Service accumulated as of the Date of Termination plus an additional number of Years of Benefit Service (up to a maximum of five (5) additional years) equal to the number of additional Years of Benefit Service that you would have earned if you had remained an employee of the Company until attainment of age sixty-two (62), (c) the Final Average Earnings (for purposes of applying the benefit formula under the Retirement Plan) will be determined using (I) the highest monthly rate of Base Salary in effect during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the Date of Termination, plus (II) the higher of (A) the highest annual bonus paid to you or paid but deferred on your behalf under the Plan, (B) any earned, but unpaid, bonus accrued for your benefit under the Plan, or (C) your highest target annual bonus under the Plan, whether or not earned, in each case with respect to the three (3) calendar years immediately preceding the Date of Termination and the partial calendar year ending on the Date of Termination, divided by twelve (12) (regardless of the earnings limitations under the Retirement Plan or governmental regulations applicable to those plans), and (d) the monthly retirement benefit so calculated will be reduced by an amount equal to the monthly retirement benefit payable to you under the Retirement Plan. All capitalized terms used in this subparagraph, unless otherwise defined, will have the same meanings as those terms are defined in the Retirement Plan. The actuarial equivalent will be calculated based on the assumptions contained in the Retirement Plan on the Date of Termination; provided that the assumptions on which the actuarial equivalent will be calculated will be no less favorable to you than those assumptions contained in the Retirement Plan on the date of the Change in Control. 5.4 Benefit Plans. ------------- (a) Unless your employment is terminated for Cause, the Company will maintain in full force and effect, for your continued benefit for three (3) years after your Date of Termination, the group health, dental, vision, life insurance. disability and similar coverages in which you are entitled to participate immediately prior to the Date of Termination at the same level as for active employees and in the same manner as if your employment had not terminated. Any additional coverages you had at termination, including dependent coverage, will also be continued for that period on the same terms, to the extent permitted by the applicable policies or contracts. You will be responsible for paying any costs you were paying for those coverages at the time of termination by separate check payable to the Company each month in

advance. If the terms of any benefit plan referred to in this subparagraph 5.4(a), or the laws applicable to that plan do not permit your continued participation, then the Company will arrange for other coverages satisfactory to you at the Company's expense that provide substantially similar benefits, or the Company will pay you a lump sum amount equal to the costs you would have to pay to obtain those coverage(s) for the three-year period. (b) If you have satisfied the requirements for receiving the Company's retiree medical coverage on your Date of Termination or will satisfy those requirements prior to the last day of the three-year benefit continuation period provided in item (a) above, you (and your dependents) will be covered by, and receive benefits under, the Company's retiree medical coverage program for employees at your level. Your retiree medical coverage will commence on the date your health care coverage terminates under item (a) above, and will continue for your life (i.e., the coverage will be vested and may not be terminated), subject only to those changes in the level of coverage that apply to employees at your level generally. (c) You will be entitled to continue to participate in the Company's 401(k) Retirement and Savings Plan for the three-year period after your Date of Termination. For purposes of the 401(k) Plan, you will receive an amount equal to the Company's contributions to the 401(k) Plan, assuming you had made contributions to the 401(k) Plan at the maximum permissible level. If the Company cannot contribute those additional amounts to the 401(k) Plan on your behalf because of the terms of the 401(k) Plan or applicable law, the Company will pay to you within five (5) days of the Date of Termination a lump sum amount equal to the additional amounts the Company would have been required to contribute (based upon the terms of the 401(k) Plan as in effect on the Date of Termination). 5.5 No Mitigation Required. You will not be required to mitigate the ---------------------- amount of any payment or benefits provided for in this paragraph 5 by seeking other employment or otherwise, nor will the amount of any payment or benefits provided for in this paragraph 5 be reduced by any compensation earned by you, or benefits provided to you, as the result of employment by another employer after the Date of Termination, or otherwise.

5.6 Tax Gross-Up Payment. If any payments or benefits provided pursuant -------------------- to this Letter or any other payments or benefits provided to you by the Company are subject to an excise tax on an "excess parachute payment" under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code"), or any successor provision of the Code, or are subject to an excise or penalty tax under any similar provision of any other revenue system to which you may be subject, the Company will provide a gross-up payment to you in order to place you in the same after-tax position you would have been in had no excise or penalty tax become due and payable under Code Section 4999 (or any successor provision) or any similar provision of that other revenue system. That gross-up payment will not apply to any excise or penalty tax attributable to any incentive stock option granted to you by the Company or Equifax Inc. prior to April 1, 1998. Any gross-up payment to which you are entitled as a result of the applicability of an excise tax under Code Section 4999 or any successor provision of the Code, or as a result of any excise or penalty tax under any similar provision of any other revenue system to which you may be subject, will be determined in accordance with a "Policy with Respect to Tax Gross-up Payments" adopted, or which will be adopted, by the Board of Directors (or a Committee of the Board), and once that policy is adopted, no amendment of that policy that adversely affects you will be effective with respect to your rights under this Letter without your written consent. 6. Successors: Binding Agreement. ----------------------------- 6.1 Assumption by Company's Successor. The Company will require any --------------------------------- successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company, by agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to you, to expressly assume and agree to perform this Letter. Failure of the Company to obtain that agreement prior to the effectiveness of any succession will be a breach of this Letter and will entitle you to compensation from the Company in the same amount and on the same terms as you would be entitled under this Letter if you terminated your employment for Good Reason within three (3) years following a Change in Control, except that for purposes of implementing the foregoing, the date on which that succession becomes effective will be deemed the Date of Termination. As used in this Letter, "Company" means Equifax PS, Inc. and any successor to its business and/or assets that executes and delivers the agreement provided for in this subparagraph 6.1 or that otherwise becomes bound by all the terms and provisions of this Letter by operation of law.

6.2 Enforcement by Your Successor. This Letter will inure to the benefit ----------------------------- of and be enforceable by your personal or legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, heirs, distributees, devisees and legatees. If you die subsequent to the termination of your employment while any amount would still be payable to you pursuant to this Letter if you had continued to live, all those amounts, unless otherwise provided in this Letter, will be paid in accordance with the terms of this Letter to your devisee, legatee or other designee or, if there be no designee, to your estate; that payment to be made in a lump sum within sixty (60) days from the date of your death. 7.

Modification and Waiver. No provision of this Letter may be modified, ----------------------- waived or discharged unless that waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing by you and that officer as may be specifically designated by the Board of Directors of the Company. No waiver by either party at any time of any breach by the other party of, or compliance with, any condition or provision of this Letter to be performed by that other party will be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at the time or at any prior or subsequent time. 9. Construction. This Letter supersedes (a) any oral agreement between you and ------------ the Company and any oral representation by the Company to you with respect to the subject matter of this Letter, and (b) that letter agreement dated __________, ____ between you and Equifax Inc. pertaining to change in control. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Letter will be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia. 10. Severability. If any one or more of the provisions of this Letter or any ------------ word, phrase, clause, sentence or other portion of a provision is deemed illegal or unenforceable for any reason, that provision or portion will be modified or deleted in such a manner as to make this Letter as modified legal and enforceable to the

fullest extent permitted under applicable laws. The validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions or portions of this Letter will remain in full force and effect. 11. Counterparts. This Letter may be executed in two or more counterparts, ------------ each of which will take effect as an original and all of which will evidence one and the same agreement. 12. Legal Fees. If the Company breaches this Letter or if, within three (3) ---------- years following a Change in Control, your employment is terminated under circumstances described in paragraph 4 that entitle you to payments and benefits under paragraph 5, the Company will reimburse you for all legal fees and expenses reasonably incurred by you as a result of that termination (including all those fees and expenses, if any, incurred in contesting or disputing the termination or in seeking to obtain or enforce any right or benefit provided by this Letter). Upon presentation to the Company of the invoice for those legal fees and expenses, the Company will reimburse you monthly for those legal fees and expenses. 13. Indemnification. After your termination, the Company will indemnify you --------------- and hold you harmless from and against any claim relating to your performance as an officer, director or employee of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or other affiliates or in any other capacity, including any fiduciary capacity, in which you served at the Company's request, in each case to the maximum extent permitted by law and under the Company's Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws (the "Governing Documents"), provided that under no circumstances will the protection afforded to you under this paragraph be less than that afforded under the Governing Documents as in effect on the date of this Agreement except for changes mandated by law. You will continue to receive the benefits of, and be covered by, any policy of directors and officers liability insurance maintained by the Company for the benefit of its directors, officers and employees. 14. Employment by a Subsidiary. Either the Company or a Subsidiary may be your -------------------------- legal employer. For purposes of this Letter, any reference to your termination of employment with the Company means termination of employment with the Company and all Subsidiaries, and does not include a transfer of employment between any of them. The actions referred to under the definition of "Good Reason" in subparagraph 4.3 include the actions of the Company or your employing Subsidiary, as applicable. The obligations created under this Letter are obligations of the Company. A change in control of a Subsidiary will not constitute a Change in Control for purposes of this Letter unless there is also a contemporaneous Change in Control of the Company. For purposes of paragraph 1

and this paragraph, a "Subsidiary" means an entity more than fifty percent (50%) of whose equity interests are owned directly or indirectly by the Company.

SUMMARY The following summary highlights selected information contained in this information statement relating to the distribution and the businesses to be contributed to us by Equifax on or prior to the distribution. Because this is a summary, it does not contain all the details concerning the distribution and our business, including information that may be important to you. We urge you to read the entire information statement carefully, especially the risks relating to the distribution, and our business and industry discussed under "Risk Factors" and our financial statements. We intend to change the name of our company prior to the date we mail this information statement. We describe in this information statement the businesses to be contributed to us by Equifax Inc. immediately prior to the distribution, described under "--The Distribution," as if they were our businesses for all historical periods described. After the distribution, we will be an independent public company, and Equifax will have no continuing stock ownership in us. Accordingly, our historical financial results as part of Equifax contained in this information statement may not reflect our financial results in the future as an independent company or what our financial results would have been had we been a stand-alone company during the periods presented. OUR BUSINESS Overview We provide credit and debit card processing and check risk management services to financial institutions and merchants throughout the world. Last year, we processed over 1.7 billion payment transactions, serviced over 27 million card accounts, and authorized over $28 billion of check transactions worldwide. Our business is comprised of two segments, Card Services and Check Services. Card Services provides credit and debit card processing services, and e- banking services. Our card issuer services enable banks, credit unions, retailers and others to issue VISA and MasterCard credit and debit cards, private label cards, and other electronic payment cards. The majority of our card issuer customers subscribe to our full service programs, where we provide essentially all of the operations and support necessary to support a card issuer's credit and debit card issuing program. Our merchant processing services enable retailers and other businesses to accept credit, debit, and other electronic payment cards from purchasers of their goods and services. We provide these services both directly to merchants that accept cards, and through contracts with financial institutions and others where our products and services enable them to service the card processing needs of their merchant customers. Our e-banking business enables banks to provide electronic banking services to their business and individual banking customers. Card Services' target market in the U.S. consists of banks, credit unions, other card issuers, and retailers. Within these markets, we believe we have established ourselves as the leader, based on market share, in providing comprehensive card processing services to credit unions and to independent community bank card issuers. We process for approximately 4,000 U.S. credit unions and approximately 2,200 independent community banks, principally through our strategic alliances with the two premier associations representing independent financial institutions. These associations are the Independent Community Bankers Association, or ICBA, and Card Services for Credit Unions, or CSCU. Our revenue from international card processing operations has grown rapidly since we entered the international market in 1998, and now accounts for 23% of Card Services' revenue. The international card processing market has grown rapidly over the last several years. We believe that strong growth will continue well into the future, fueled by the rapid development of credit economies in Asian-Pacific and South American countries, international expansion of U.S. card issuers, and outsourcing trends among international financial institutions. 1

Check Services provides check risk management products and services which enable retailers, hotels, automotive dealers, telecommunications companies, supermarkets, casinos, mail order houses and other businesses to minimize losses from dishonored checks, maximize check acceptance, and improve customer service. Our diverse and flexible portfolio of check risk management products and services, including check guarantee, check verification, bad check collections, and risk management consulting, allows us to tailor solutions to meet the specific needs of the customer. We believe that strong demand for cost-effective, accurate, and innovative check risk management creates significant growth opportunities for our check risk management business in the U.S., which has benefited from our development and launch of a series of enhanced risk modeling capabilities and check risk management products, and our increased focus on sales and marketing to regional and local retailers to supplement our traditional leadership in the national retailer market. We provide our check risk management products and services internationally in Canada, the U.K., Ireland, France, Australia, and New Zealand. In terms of aggregate market share, we believe we are the leading provider of check risk management products and services in those combined geographies. The low penetration of check risk management products and services in international markets creates a substantial growth opportunity for our Check Services business. Since 1990, our businesses have been operated as part of Equifax. As a whole, Equifax enables and secures global commerce through its information management, transaction processing, direct marketing, and customer relationship management businesses. Equifax serves the financial services, retail, credit card, transportation, telecommunications/utilities, information technology and healthcare industries and government. Through this distribution, Equifax is spinning off its transaction processing businesses, which are the businesses described in this information statement as our businesses. In fiscal year 2000, our businesses accounted for approximately 24% of Equifax's assets, 40% of Equifax's net income, and 40% of Equifax's total revenue. Equifax believes that separating its two major lines of businesses in the distribution will provide Equifax and our company with greater managerial and operational flexibility to respond to changing market conditions in our differing business environments and to achieve our respective strategic and financial objectives. Equifax also believes that the separation will provide Equifax and Equifax PS with additional financial flexibility to pursue growth opportunities and will lead to better investor understanding of the different businesses. Our Strategy Our strategic objective is to strengthen our position as a leading global provider of payment processing and check risk management services. We intend to concentrate on the following strategies to accomplish our objective: . Leverage the competitive strengths of our Card Services business in the U.S., including our CSCU and ICBA alliances, to further increase our share of revenue in the U.S. card and merchant processing markets. . Grow the international customer base and processing volumes of our Card Services business. . Increase Card Services' revenues from new and existing products and services. . Leverage the competitive strengths of our Check Services business, which include what we believe are the industry's most advanced check risk management algorithms and systems, to increase its share of the markets it traditionally serves. . Continue our development and utilization of increasingly sophisticated risk modeling tools in our Check Services segment to differentiate our capabilities from the competition. . Enter new markets such as check cashing, gaming, grocery, government and Internet commerce by combining our current risk management and identity authentication products and services. 2

THE DISTRIBUTION Please see "The Distribution" for a more detailed description of the matters described below. Distributing Company........ Equifax Inc., a worldwide leader in enabling and securing global commerce through its information management, transaction processing, direct marketing, and customer relationship management businesses. Equifax currently operates two major lines of business commonly referred to as information services and payment services. Distributed Company......... Equifax PS, Inc., which will own the payment services businesses conducted by Equifax. Please see "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Business" for a description of these businesses. Distribution Ratio.......... Each holder of Equifax common stock will receive a dividend of one share of our common stock, and the associated common stock purchase right, for every shares of Equifax common stock held on the record date. Securities to be Based on shares of Equifax common Distributed................. stock outstanding on , 2001 and assuming no exercise of outstanding options, approximately shares of our common stock, together with the associated common stock purchase rights, will be distributed. The shares of our common stock to be distributed will constitute all of the outstanding shares of our common stock immediately after the distribution. Equifax shareholders will not be required to pay for the shares of our common stock to be received by them in the distribution, or to surrender or exchange shares of Equifax common stock in order to receive our common stock, or to take any other action in connection with the distribution. Fractional Shares........... Fractional shares of our common stock will not be distributed. Fractional shares held by owners of record will be aggregated and sold in the public market by the distribution agent. The aggregate net cash proceeds of these sales will be distributed ratably to those shareholders who would otherwise have received fractional interests. These proceeds may be taxable to those shareholders. Distribution Agent, Transfer Agent, and Registrar for Shares....... SunTrust Bank will be the distribution agent, transfer agent and registrar for the shares of our common stock. Record Date................. The record date is the close of business on , 2001. Distribution Date........... 11:59 p.m. on , 2001. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Distribution............... Equifax has received a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service to the effect that the distribution will qualify as a tax-free transaction under Sections 355 and 368(a)(1)(D) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. 3

Stock Exchange Listing...... There is not currently a public market for our common stock. We have applied for our common stock to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol " ." If such application is approved, it is anticipated that trading will commence on a when-issued basis prior to the distribution. When-issued trading refers to a transaction made conditionally because the security has been authorized but not yet issued. On the first trading day following the distribution date, when-issued trading in respect of our common stock will end and regular-way trading will begin. Regular-way trading refers to trading after a security has been issued and typically involves a transaction that settles on the third full business day following the date of the transaction. Credit Facility............. We intend to obtain a commitment for an unsecured revolving line of credit. It will fund a cash payment to Equifax of $275 million to reflect our share of Equifax's pre-distribution debt. This line of credit will also be used to fund our working capital and acquisition needs after the distribution. This line of credit will have a variable interest rate based on market rates. The credit agreement will contain financial and non-financial covenants customary for financings of this nature. We expect that the facility will have a three-year term. Relationship between Equifax and Us After the Distribution............... Following the distribution, we will be an independent public company, and Equifax will have no continuing stock ownership interest in us. Prior to the distribution, we will enter into a distribution agreement and several ancillary agreements with Equifax for the purpose of accomplishing the contribution of Equifax's payment services businesses to us and the distribution of our common stock to Equifax's shareholders. These agreements also will govern our relationship with Equifax subsequent to the distribution and provide for the allocation of employee benefits, tax and some other liabilities and obligations attributable to periods prior to the distribution. These agreements also include arrangements with respect to intellectual property and various interim services. The distribution agreement will provide that we generally will indemnify Equifax against liabilities arising out of the payment services businesses being transferred to us and that Equifax generally will indemnify us against liabilities arising out of the businesses Equifax is retaining. Please see "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution" for a more detailed description of these agreements. Post-Distribution Dividend We do not anticipate paying any dividends on Policy...................... our common stock in the foreseeable future. The declaration and payment of dividends after the distribution, however, will be at the discretion of our board of directors. Certain Anti-Takeover Effects..................... Certain provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws may have the effect of making more difficult the acquisition of control of Equifax PS by a third-party in a transaction not approved by our 4

board of directors. Our rights agreement also would make such a transaction more difficult. Moreover, certain provisions of the tax sharing and indemnification agreement we will enter into with Equifax could discourage or delay potential acquisition proposals. Risk Factors................ Shareholders should carefully consider the matters discussed under "Risk Factors." Our Principal Executive 1550 Peachtree Street, N.W. Offices.....................

SUMMARY HISTORICAL AND PRO FORMA COMBINED FINANCIAL DATA Our summary historical and pro forma combined financial data set forth below should be read in conjunction with the "Combined Financial Statements of the Equifax Payment Services division," including the notes to those statements, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," and the "Pro Forma Combined Financial Statements of the Equifax Payment Services division," including the notes to those statements, included elsewhere in this information statement. The historical income statement data for the years ended December 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998 and the historical balance sheet data as of December 31, 2000 and 1999 are derived from the combined financial statements included elsewhere in this information statement that have been audited by Arthur Andersen LLP, Equifax's independent public accountants. The historical income statement data for the three months ended March 31, 2001 and 2000 and for the years ended December 31, 1997 and 1996, and the historical balance sheet data as of March 31, 2001 and 2000 and December 31, 1998, 1997, and 1996 are derived from unaudited combined financial statements that have been prepared by management and are not included in this information statement. Operating expenses in the historical income statements reflect direct charges of the payment services business together with allocations of certain Equifax corporate expenses that have been charged to us based on usage or other methodologies appropriate for such expenses. In the opinion of management, these allocations have been made on a reasonable basis. The summary pro forma combined financial data reflects adjustments to our historical combined balance sheet as of March 31, 2001 as if the distribution to shareholders had occurred on March 31, 2001 and to our historical combined income statements for the three months ended March 31, 2001 and for the year ended December 31, 2000 as if the distribution had occurred on January 1, 2000. The summary pro forma combined financial data we have included in this information statement reflects our historical financial position and results of operations, with adjustments made for the new line of credit that will be used to fund the $275 million payment to Equifax in conjunction with the distribution and the related interest expense; additional operating expenses related to incremental pension expense, insurance costs, corporate headquarters rent, and stand-alone public company costs for audit, director, and stock exchange fees; and the related income tax benefit resulting from the pro forma adjustments. Neither the historical financial information nor the pro forma data presented below is necessarily indicative of what our results of operations or financial position would have been had we operated as an independent company during the periods presented, nor is it necessarily indicative of our future performance as an independent company.

The actual ratio has not yet been determined. (2) Includes adjustment to reflect additional annual expenses of approximately $6.5 million, which specifically relate to incremental pension expense, insurance costs, corporate headquarters rent, and stand- alone public company costs for audit, director, and stock exchange fees. The increase in pension expense is a result of us no longer benefitting from the over-funded status of the consolidated Equifax pension plan. (3) Includes adjustment to reflect interest expense on the $275 million of debt to be used to fund the cash payment to Equifax in conjunction with the distribution, at an annual rate of LIBOR plus 100 basis points (7.54% for the year ended December 31, 2000 and 6.34% for the three months ended March 31, 2001), and includes amortization of financing costs over the three-year term of the debt. No Equifax corporate debt or related interest expense is included in the historical financial statements, as these amounts have not historically been allocated to the operating divisions by Equifax. (4) Includes adjustment to reflect the income tax benefit resulting from the pro forma adjustments using our effective tax rate for the period. (5) Includes adjustment to reflect the capitalization of the Equifax equity investment and the $275 million of debt to be used to fund the cash payment to Equifax in conjunction with the distribution. 7

THE DISTRIBUTION General On October 2, 2000, the board of directors of Equifax announced a preliminary decision to spin-off Equifax's payment services businesses in a tax-free distribution of shares to Equifax's shareholders. On , 2001, the board of directors of Equifax formally approved the distribution of all of the outstanding shares of our common stock and declared a dividend payable to each holder of record of Equifax's common stock at the close of business on , 2001, which will be the record date, of one share of our common stock and an associated common stock purchase right for every shares of Equifax common stock held by such holder on the record date. Please see "Description of Capital Stock--Rights Agreement" for a description of the common stock purchase rights. Manner of Effecting the Distribution The general terms and conditions relating to the distribution are set forth in the distribution agreement between us and Equifax. Under the distribution agreement, the distribution will be effective at 11:59 p.m. on the distribution date, , 2001. Prior to the distribution date, Equifax will deliver all outstanding shares of our common stock to the distribution agent for distribution. For most Equifax shareholders who own Equifax common stock in registered form on the record date, our distribution agent will automatically mail to those shareholders an Equifax PS common stock certificate. For shareholders who own Equifax common stock through a broker or other nominee, their receipt of Equifax PS common stock certificates will depend on the arrangements they have with the nominee holding their Equifax shares. As further discussed below, fractional shares will not be distributed. A delivery of a share of our common stock in connection with the distribution also will constitute the delivery of the common stock purchase right associated with such share. These rights are intended to have anti-takeover effects. The existence of the rights may deter a potential acquiror from making a takeover proposal or a tender offer. For a more detailed discussion of these rights, please see "Description of Capital Stock--Rights Agreement." Unless the context otherwise requires, reference in this information statement to our common stock will include the related common stock purchase rights. Equifax shareholders will not be required to pay for shares of our common stock received in the distribution, or to surrender or exchange shares of Equifax common stock in order to receive our common stock, or to take any other action in connection with the distribution. No vote of Equifax shareholders is required or sought in connection with the distribution, and Equifax shareholders have no dissenters' rights in connection with the distribution. Fractional shares of our common stock will not be issued to Equifax shareholders as part of the distribution. In lieu of receiving fractional shares, each holder of Equifax common stock who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share of our common stock will receive cash for the fractional interest, which may be taxable to such holder. For an explanation of the tax consequences of the distribution, please see "The Distribution--Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Distribution." The distribution agent will, as soon as practicable after the distribution date, aggregate fractional shares into whole shares, sell them in the open market at the prevailing market prices and distribute the aggregate proceeds ratably to Equifax shareholders otherwise entitled to fractional interests. The amount of this payment will depend on the prices at which the aggregated fractional shares are sold by the distribution agent in the open market shortly after the distribution date. We will be responsible for any payment of brokerage fees. The amount of these brokerage fees is not expected to be material to us. In order to be entitled to receive shares of our common stock in the distribution, Equifax shareholders must be shareholders at the close of business on the record date, , 2001. 8

The chart set forth below illustrates the distribution ratio by showing the number of our shares and/or the amount of cash that an Equifax shareholder would receive pursuant to the distribution for varying amounts of Equifax shares held as of the record date for the distribution, assuming a distribution ratio of one share of our common stock for every shares of Equifax common stock held. Shares of Equifax common stock held Shares Shares Shares Shares - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Shares of our 0 shares of our 1 share of our 1 share of our shares of common stock to common stock and common stock and common stock and our be received upon cash for . no cash cash for . common stock and distribution fractional share fractional share no cash Because the distribution will be effected in the manner described above, many of our shareholders may hold odd lots, or blocks of less than 100, of our shares. An investor selling an odd lot may be required to pay a higher commission rate than an investor selling round lots, or blocks of 100 shares. Reasons for the Distribution Equifax's board of directors believes that the distribution is in the best interests of Equifax and its shareholders and that the separation of our businesses from Equifax's other businesses will provide Equifax and our company with greater managerial and operational flexibility to respond to changing market conditions in our differing business environments, as well as provide both companies with additional financial flexibility to pursue growth opportunities. In deciding how to achieve Equifax's business purpose for separating our businesses from the other businesses conducted by Equifax, management determined that a spin-off of our business was the only transaction that would be nontaxable, practical and not unduly expensive. In determining that the separation is in the best interests of Equifax and its shareholders, Equifax's board of directors considered the potential negative effect of restrictions, due to tax considerations caused by the spin-off, on significant stock transactions for both Equifax and us following the distribution. These tax considerations are more fully discussed under "--Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Distribution." The following discussion of the reasons for the distribution includes forward-looking statements that are based upon numerous assumptions with respect to the trading characteristics of our common stock, the ability of our management to succeed in taking advantage of growth opportunities and our ability to succeed as a stand-alone company. Many of these factors are discussed below under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Forward-Looking Statements." Management Considerations. At present, our businesses and the other businesses conducted by Equifax are operated as separate divisions under a single corporate parent entity. The distribution is expected to benefit each of the two divisions, allowing the management of each line of business to design and implement corporate policies and strategies that are based primarily on its business characteristics and most appropriate to each of the respective businesses. Furthermore, management believes that after the separation, there are opportunities to improve our profitability and our business performance as a stand-alone company. Enhanced Ability to Expand the Scope and Level of Services Provided to Customers and to Pursue New Business Opportunities. We also expect that the separation will improve each company's ability to expand the scope and level of services they provide to their respective customer bases, and to pursue new business opportunities. For instance, the largest customers of Equifax's information services group are large, national financial institutions, which compete with our Card Services segment's principal customer base in the U.S., namely the credit unions and independent community banks. Additionally, several significant customers of Equifax's information services business compete with our merchant transaction processing business. We believe that eliminating these existing inherent conflicts through the separation will enable us to offer more 9

aggressively a wider array of services to the credit unions and community banks to enable them to compete more effectively in the payment card market, as well as allow us to compete more aggressively for merchant processing business. Enhanced Ability to Execute Growth Strategies. Each company will also be able to pursue growth strategies that fit the different prospects of each business. We expect that the ability of each company to pursue strategic alliances, acquisitions and other investment opportunities will be enhanced by the provision of differentiated access to the capital markets. Additionally, each line of business will be financially independent and able to concentrate its financial resources wholly on its own operations. Improved Ability to Hire, Retain and Motivate Key Personnel. The distribution will also permit each company to design incentive compensation programs that relate more directly to its own business characteristics and performance and will provide each company with a "pure-play" publicly traded equity for use in its incentive compensation programs. Investor Understanding; Public Relations. The distribution should facilitate a more focused evaluation of the unique investment opportunities of each company given the different market opportunities attributable to each business line. In addition, each company will be able to focus its public relations efforts on cultivating its own separate identity. Interests of Persons in the Distribution Two of our directors, Mr. Thomas F. Chapman and Mr. Lee A. Kennedy, are members of the Equifax board of directors and voted to approve the distribution. Mr. Chapman, the current Chairman of the board of directors and Chief Executive Officer of Equifax, will serve on our board of directors, and as Chairman of our board, for a transitional period of one year after the distribution. For his service as Chairman of our board of directors, Mr. Chapman will receive an annual retainer of $250,000 payable in cash, shares of our common stock, or a combination of both. He will also receive $1,000 for attendance at each meeting of the board or a board committee, and an option to purchase 2,000 shares of our common stock upon the effective date of our 2001 Non-Employee Director Stock Option Plan. Mr. Chapman will remain Chairman of the Equifax board of directors at the time of the distribution. Mr. Kennedy, our President and Chief Executive Officer, will resign from the Equifax board of directors at the time of the distribution. Please see "Management--Executive Compensation." Results of the Distribution After the distribution, we will be an independent public company owning and operating what has previously been Equifax's payment services businesses. Immediately after the distribution, we expect to have approximately holders of record of shares and approximately shares outstanding, based on the number of record shareholders and outstanding shares of Equifax common stock on , 2001 and assuming no exercise of outstanding options, and after giving effect to the delivery to shareholders of cash in lieu of fractional shares of our common stock. The actual total number of our shares of common stock to be distributed will depend on the number of shares of Equifax common stock outstanding on the record date. For information regarding options to purchase our common stock that will be outstanding after the distribution, see "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution--Employee Benefits Agreement" and "Management." Prior to the distribution, we will enter into several agreements with Equifax in connection with, among other things, intellectual property and various services. For a more detailed description of these agreements, please see "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution." The distribution will not affect the number of outstanding shares of Equifax common stock or any rights of Equifax shareholders in their Equifax shares. 10

Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Distribution Equifax has received a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service, or the IRS, to the effect that the contributions constitute a reorganization pursuant to Section 368(a)(1)(D) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the Code, and that the distribution will qualify as a tax-free distribution for federal income tax purposes under Section 355 of the Code. The ruling provides that for U.S. Federal income tax purposes: . Equifax will not recognize any gain or loss upon the distribution; . no gain or loss will be recognized by, or be includible in the income of, a shareholder of Equifax common stock solely as the result of the receipt of our common stock in the distribution, except, as described below, in connection with cash received in lieu of fractional shares of our common stock; . the basis of the Equifax common stock and our common stock in the hands of Equifax's shareholders immediately after the distribution will be the same as the basis of the Equifax common stock immediately before the distribution, allocated between the common stock of Equifax and our common stock in proportion to their relative fair market values on the date of the distribution; . the holding period of our common stock received by Equifax shareholders will include the holding period of their Equifax common stock, provided that such Equifax common stock is held as a capital asset on the date of the distribution; and . shareholders of Equifax who receive cash from the distribution agent in respect of fractional shares will recognize gain or loss on the sale of the fractional share interest equal to the difference between the cash received and the holder's basis in such fractional share interest. Such gain or loss will be capital gain or loss to such holder, provided the fractional share interest is a capital asset in the hands of such holder. Although the ruling relating to the qualification of the distribution as a tax-free transaction is generally binding on the IRS, the continuing validity of the ruling is subject to factual representations and assumptions. Neither Equifax nor we are aware of any facts or circumstances that would cause such representations and assumptions to be untrue. If the distribution were not to qualify as a tax-free transaction, Equifax would recognize taxable gain equal to the excess of the fair market value of our common stock distributed to Equifax shareholders over Equifax's tax basis in our common stock. In addition, each shareholder who receives our common stock in the distribution would generally be treated as receiving a taxable distribution in an amount equal to the fair market value of our common stock received. Even if the distribution otherwise qualifies for tax-free treatment under Sections 355 and 368(a)(1)(D) of the Code, it may be disqualified as tax-free to Equifax under Section 355(e) of the Code if 50% or more of the stock of Equifax or us is acquired as part of a plan or series of related transactions that includes the distribution. For this purpose, any acquisitions of our stock or Equifax's stock within two years before or after the distribution are presumed to be part of such a plan, although Equifax or we may be able to rebut that presumption. If such an acquisition of our stock or Equifax's stock triggers the application of Section 355(e), Equifax would recognize taxable gain as described above but the distribution would generally be tax-free to each Equifax shareholder. Under the tax sharing and indemnification agreement between Equifax and us, we would be required to indemnify Equifax against that taxable gain if it were triggered by an acquisition of our stock. Please see "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution--Tax Sharing and Indemnification Agreement" for a more detailed discussion of the tax sharing and indemnification agreement between Equifax and us. U.S. Treasury regulations require each Equifax shareholder that receives shares of our stock in the distribution to attach to the shareholder's U.S. Federal income tax return for the year in which such stock is received a detailed statement setting forth such data as may be appropriate to show the applicability of Section 11

355 of the Code to the distribution. Within a reasonable period of time after the distribution, Equifax will provide its shareholders who receive our common stock pursuant to the distribution with the information necessary to comply with such requirement. Each Equifax shareholder should consult his or her tax adviser about the particular consequences of the distribution to him or her, including the application of state, local and foreign tax laws, and possible changes in tax law that may affect the tax consequences described above. Listing and Trading of Our Common Stock There is not currently a public market for our common stock. We will apply for our common stock to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol " ." Assuming such listing is approved, it is anticipated that trading will commence on a "when-issued" basis prior to the distribution. A when-issued listing may be identified by the "wi" letters next to the Equifax PS common stock listing on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Tape. If the conditions to the distribution are not satisfied and our shares of common stock are not distributed, all when-issued trading will become null and void. If the distribution occurs as planned, on the first trading day following the distribution date, when-issued trading in our common stock will end and regular-way trading will begin. Equifax common stock will continue to trade on a regular basis and may also trade on an "ex-dividend" basis, reflecting an assumed post-distribution value for Equifax common stock. Ex-dividend trading in Equifax common stock, if available, could last from on or about , 2001 through , 2001. If this occurs, an additional listing for Equifax common stock, followed by the "x" letter, will appear on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Tape. After the distribution, Equifax common stock will continue to be listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "EFX." We cannot assure you as to the price at which our common stock will trade before, on, or after the distribution date. Until our common stock is fully distributed and an orderly market develops in our common stock, the price at which such stock trades may fluctuate significantly. In addition, the combined trading prices of our common stock and Equifax common stock held by shareholders after the distribution may be less than, equal to, or greater than the trading price of Equifax common stock prior to the distribution. The shares distributed to Equifax shareholders will be freely transferable, except for shares received by people who may have a special relationship or affiliation with us. People who may be considered our affiliates after the distribution generally include individuals or entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with us. This will include our directors and certain of our officers. Persons who are our affiliates will be permitted to sell their shares only pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, such as exemptions afforded by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act or Rule 144 thereunder. Reasons for Furnishing This Information Statement This information statement is being furnished by Equifax solely to provide information to shareholders of Equifax who will receive shares of our common stock in the distribution. It is not, and is not to be construed as, an inducement or encouragement to buy or sell any of our securities. The information contained in this information statement is believed by us to be accurate as of the date set forth on its cover. Changes may occur after that date, and we will not update the information except in the normal course of our respective public disclosure obligations and practices. 12

RISK FACTORS You should carefully consider each of the following risks and all the other information contained in this information statement. Some of the following risks relate principally to the distribution while other risks relate to our business in general and the industry in which we operate. Risks Related to Our Separation From Equifax We have no history operating as an independent company, and we may be unable to make the changes necessary to operate as a stand-alone business, or we may incur greater costs as a stand-alone company that may cause profits to decline. Prior to the distribution, our businesses were operated by Equifax as a separate division within Equifax's broader corporate organization rather than as a stand-alone company. Equifax assisted us by providing financing and a number of corporate support functions such as accounting, financial management, tax, human resources administration, legal, and other general support. Following the distribution, Equifax will have no obligation to assist us other than providing the interim services described in "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution." We are in the process of creating our own, or engaging third parties to provide, systems and business functions to replace many of the systems and business functions Equifax provides us. We may not be successful in implementing these systems and business functions or in transitioning data from Equifax's systems to ours in a timely and efficient manner. If we do not have in place our own systems and business functions or if we do not have agreements with other service providers once our interim services agreement with Equifax expires, we may not be able to operate our business efficiently. Because our businesses have not been operated as an independent company, operating independently may result in additional operating costs and lower profits. Our historical financial information may not be representative of our results as a separate company and, therefore, may not be reliable as an indicator of our historical or future results. The historical financial information we have included in this information statement may not reflect what our results of operations, financial position and cash flows would have been had we been a stand-alone company during the periods presented or what our results of operations, financial position and cash flows will be in the future. This is because: . our combined financial statements reflect allocations, primarily with respect to corporate overhead, for services provided to us by Equifax, which allocations may not reflect the costs we will incur for similar services as a stand-alone company; . no allocations have been made in our combined financial statements for debt or related interest expense of Equifax; and . the financial information does not reflect changes that we expect to occur in the future as a result of our separation from Equifax, including changes in how we fund our operations and how we allocate income tax expenses. Therefore, our combined financial statements may not be indicative of our future performance as an independent company. For additional information about our past financial performance and the basis of presentation of our combined financial statements, please see "Selected Financial Data," "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and our combined financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this information statement. Because there has not been a public market for our common stock, its market price cannot be predicted, and you may not be able to resell your shares at or above the initial market price of our stock following the distribution. There has been no trading market for our common stock. Accordingly, we cannot predict the extent to which investors' interest will lead to a liquid trading market or whether the market price of our common stock will be volatile. Some of the Equifax shareholders who receive our shares may sell them immediately following the distribution, which could delay the development of an orderly trading market in our 13

shares. Until an orderly market develops, the prices at which our shares trade may fluctuate significantly. In addition, the price of our shares may be depressed until investors have an opportunity to fully familiarize themselves with our business and how it relates to and competes within our industry. Risks Relating To Our Business and Industry Our market is highly competitive, and some of our competitors may have substantially greater resources than we do. We face direct competition from third party payment processors and companies that market software for the electronic payment industry. We also compete against software and transaction processing systems developed and used in-house by our potential customers. We cannot assure that competitors will not develop products and services that are superior to or that achieve greater market acceptance than our products and services. We expect the market for our products and services to remain highly competitive. Our failure to remain competitive may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operation. The sizes of competitors vary across market segments, as do the resources we have allocated to the segments we target. Therefore, certain of our competitors may have significantly greater financial, technical, marketing or other resources than we do in each of our market segments or overall. As a result, our competitors may be in a position to respond more quickly than we can to new or emerging technologies and changes in customer requirements, or may devote greater resources than we can to the development, promotion, sale and support of their products and services. Moreover, new competitors or alliances among our competitors may emerge and rapidly decrease our market share. We cannot assure you that we can maintain our competitive position against current and potential competitors, especially those with significantly greater resources than we have, or that competitive pressures will not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. A significant portion of our business is derived from two key strategic relationships, and a loss of either of those relationships could adversely affect our profits. We have long-term contractual alliances with two associations representing independent financial institutions in the U.S., the Independent Community Bankers Association, or ICBA, and Card Services for Credit Unions, or CSCU. Under each of these alliances, which expire in 2004, we are the association's exclusive partner for offering card processing services to that association's members. As a result, approximately 24% of our revenues are derived from ICBA and CSCU member institutions. An early termination of, or significant adverse change in, our relationships with either or both of these associations could harm our ability to retain a substantial portion of our customers and to attract new customers, and have a material adverse effect on our business. Demand for our products and services is sensitive to the level of consumer transactions effected by our customers, and accordingly, our revenues could be affected negatively by a general economic slowdown or any other event causing a material slowing of consumer spending. A significant portion of our revenue is derived from transaction processing fees. Any changes in economic factors that adversely affect consumer spending and related consumer debt, or a reduction in credit and debit card use, would reduce the volume of transactions that we process, and have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. We rely heavily on a small number of specific business segments for the majority of our revenues. Revenues of our card processing business are primarily derived from independent community banks and credit unions, while a significant portion of our check risk management services revenues are generated by several large national or regional retail chains. The financial condition of these customers and their willingness to pay for our products and services are affected by general market conditions, competitive pressures, and operating margins within their industry. The retailing industry is currently facing downturns in demand and structural changes in the industry. We could experience declines in revenue as a result of factors adversely affecting independent banks, credit unions, and retailers. Continued consolidation in the financial services and retail industries could reduce our customer base and cause our sales to fall. Consolidation of our customers could result in a smaller market for our products 14

and services. After consolidation, banks and other financial institutions and retailers may realign management responsibilities and reexamine strategic and purchasing decisions with potential adverse effects on demand for our products or services. We may lose relationships with key constituencies within our customer's organization due to budget cuts, layoffs, or other disruptions following a consolidation. In addition, consolidation may result in a change in the technological infrastructure of the combined entity. Our products and services may not integrate with this new technological infrastructure. In addition, the acquiring institution may have its own in-house system or outsource to competitors. To continue to grow profitably, we must expand our share of the credit and debit card transaction processing market and enter new markets, and the failure to do this will adversely affect the value of our shares. Our card processing business is concentrated in the independent community bank and credit union segments of the market and we have achieved a significant degree of penetration of these market segments. While we intend to continue our vigorous pursuit of expansion within these segments, our future growth and profitability will significantly depend upon our ability to penetrate other markets, including emerging markets for electronic transaction processing, such as international transaction processing and Internet payment systems. As part of our strategy to achieve this expansion, we will continue to seek acquisition opportunities, investments and alliance relationships that will facilitate our expansion. We may not be able to complete suitable acquisitions, investments or alliances, and if we do, they may not provide us with the benefits we anticipated. Also, we may not have adequate financial and technological resources to develop products and distribution channels that will satisfy the demands of new markets. To remain competitive and grow our revenues, we must continually update our products and services, a process which could result in increased research and development costs and the loss of revenues and customers if the new products and services do not perform as intended or are not accepted in the marketplace. The credit and debit card transaction processing and check services markets in which we compete include a wide range of products and services including electronic transaction processing, check authorization and other customer support services. The market is characterized by technological change, new product introductions, evolving industry standards and changing customer needs. In order to remain competitive, we are continually involved in research and development projects. These projects carry the risks associated with any research and development effort, including cost overruns, delays in delivery and performance problems. Our market is constantly experiencing technological changes. A delay in the delivery of new products or services could render them less desirable by our customers, or possibly even obsolete. In addition, the products and services we deliver to the electronic payments market are designed to process transactions and deliver reports and other information on those transactions at very high volumes and processing speeds. Any performance issue that arises with a new product or service could result in significant processing or reporting errors. As a result of these factors, our research and development efforts could result in increased costs that could reduce our revenues and operating profit if promised new products are not timely delivered to our customers, or a loss of revenue or possible claims for damages if new products and services do not perform as anticipated. Our revenues from the sale of services to VISA and MasterCard organizations are dependent upon our continued VISA and MasterCard certification and financial institution sponsorship, and loss or suspension of this certification and sponsorship could adversely affect our business. In order to provide our transaction processing services, we must be designated a certified processor by, and be a member service provider of, MasterCard and be designated as an independent sales organization of VISA. This designation is dependent upon our being sponsored by member clearing banks of both organizations and our continuing adherence to the standards of the VISA and MasterCard associations. The member financial institutions of VISA and MasterCard, some of which are our competitors, set the standards with which we must comply. If we fail to comply with these standards, our designation as a certified processor, a member service provider or as an independent sales organization could be suspended or terminated. The termination of our member service provider status or our status as a certified processor, or any changes in the VISA and MasterCard rules that prevent our registration or otherwise limit our ability to provide transaction processing and marketing services 15

for the VISA or MasterCard organizations would result in the loss of business from VISA or Mastercard issuing customers, and lead to a reduction in our revenues. Our customers are subject to a regulatory environment and to industry standards that may change in a manner that reduces the number of transactions in which our customers engage and therefore reduces our revenues. Our customers are subject to a number of government regulations and industry standards with which our products and services must comply. For example, our products are affected by VISA and MasterCard electronic payment standards that generally are changed twice a year. In addition, action by regulatory authorities relating to credit availability, data usage, privacy or other related regulatory developments could have an adverse effect on our customers and therefore could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. If the security of our databases is compromised, our reputation could suffer and we could lose customers. If the security of our databases is compromised, our business could be adversely affected. We collect personal consumer data, such as names and addresses, social security numbers, drivers license numbers, checking and savings account numbers and payment history records. Unauthorized access to our databases could result in the theft or publication of personal confidential information and the deletion or modification of personal records or otherwise cause interruptions in our operations. These concerns about security are increased when we transmit information over the Internet. A security or privacy breach may have any one or more of the following effects: . deter customers from using our products and services; . harm our reputation; . expose us to liability; or . increase our operating expenses to correct problems caused by the breach. If we experience system failures, the products and services we provide to our customers could be delayed or interrupted, which could harm our business and reputation and result in the loss of customers. Our ability to provide reliable service largely depends on the efficient and uninterrupted operations of our computer network systems and data centers. Any significant interruptions could harm our business and reputation and result in a loss of customers. Our systems and operations could be exposed to damage or interruption from fire, natural disaster, power loss, telecommunications failure, unauthorized entry and computer viruses. Although we have taken steps to prevent a system failure, we cannot be certain that our measures will be successful and that we will not experience system failures. Further, our property and business interruption insurance may not be adequate to compensate us for all losses or failures that may occur. We plan to continue expansion of our international operations, which will subject us to additional business risks and may cause our profitability to decline due to increased costs. We believe that the international market for our products is growing rapidly, and we expect to commit significant resources to expand our international sales and marketing activities. As we expand internationally, we will be increasingly subject to a number of risks and potential costs, including: . political and economic instability; . unexpected changes in regulatory requirements and policy, the adoption of laws detrimental to our operations such as legislation relating to the collection of personal data over the Internet or laws, regulations or treaties governing the export of encryption related software; . burdens of complying with a wide variety of other laws and regulations; . failure to adequately manage currency exchange rate fluctuations; . potentially adverse tax consequences, including restrictions on the repatriation of earnings; 16

. potential difficulty of enforcing agreements and collecting receivables in some foreign legal systems; and . general economic conditions in international markets. We may not be able to overcome these barriers or avoid significant expenditures in addressing these potential risks. The reliability of market data included in this information statement is uncertain. We have not independently verified this data, and if it is inaccurate the growth potential of our business and markets may be less than anticipated. We have included market data from industry publications in this information statement. The reliability of the data cannot be assured. Market data used throughout this information statement was obtained from internal company surveys and industry publications. Industry publications generally state that the information contained in these publications has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but that its accuracy and completeness is not guaranteed. Although we believe market data used in this information statement to be reliable, it has not been independently verified. Similarly, internal company surveys, which we believe to be reliable, have not been verified by independent sources. Anti-takeover provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws, our rights agreement and provisions of Georgia law could delay or prevent a change of control that you may favor. Provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws, our rights agreement and provisions of applicable Georgia law, which will be in effect after the distribution, may discourage, delay or prevent a merger or other change of control that shareholders may consider favorable. The provisions of our articles and bylaws, among other things, will: . divide our board of directors into three classes, with members of each class to be elected in staggered three-year terms; . limit the right of shareholders to remove directors; . regulate how shareholders may present proposals or nominate directors for election at annual meetings of shareholders; and . authorize our board of directors to issue preferred shares in one or more series, without shareholder approval. Our rights agreement is designed to protect our shareholders in the event of an unsolicited offer and other takeover tactics which in the opinion of our board, could impair our board's ability to represent shareholder interests. The provisions of the rights agreement may render an unsolicited takeover of our company more difficult or less likely to occur, or might delay, deter or prevent such a takeover. We are also subject to provisions of Georgia law which may restrict certain business combinations. Please see "Description of Capital Stock" for a more detailed description of these provisions, the rights agreement, and these provisions of Georgia law. Also, under Section 355(e) of the Internal Revenue Code, the distribution would be treated as a taxable transaction if one or more persons acquire directly or indirectly 50% or more of our or Equifax's stock, measured by vote or value, as part of a plan that is, or series of related transactions that are, linked to the distribution under the rules of Section 355(e). For this purpose, any acquisitions of our stock within two years before or after the distribution are presumed to be part of such a plan, although we may be able to rebut that presumption. If such an acquisition of our stock triggers the application of Section 355(e), under the tax sharing and indemnification agreement, we would be required to indemnify Equifax for the resulting tax. This indemnity obligation might discourage, delay or prevent a change of control that shareholders may consider favorable. Please see "The Distribution--Certain Federal Income Tax Consequences" and "Relationship Between Equifax and Our Company After the Distribution--Tax Sharing and Indemnification Agreement" for a more detailed discussion of Section 355(e) of the Code and the tax sharing and indemnification agreement. 17

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS This information statement contains forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts, and projections about the industry in which we operate, and management's beliefs and assumptions. Such statements include, in particular, statements about our plans, strategies, and prospects under the headings "Summary," "Risk Factors," "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Business." Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," variations of such words, and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are based on a number of assumptions and estimates that are inherently subject to significant risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, cannot be foreseen, and reflect future business decisions that are subject to change. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. The factors that could affect our results include the matters discussed under the heading "Risk Factors"; a change in the growth rate of the overall U.S. economy, or the international economies where we do business, such that consumer spending and related consumer debt are impacted; a decline or change in the marketing techniques of credit card issuers; a reversal of the trend toward credit card use increasing as a percentage of total consumer expenditures; unanticipated cancellation or termination of customer contracts; risks associated with investments and operations in foreign countries, including regulatory environments, exchange rate fluctuations, and local political, social, and economic factors; and the extent to which we can continue successful development and marketing of new products and services. We caution that such factors are not exclusive. All of the forward-looking statements made in this information statement are qualified by these cautionary statements and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this information statement. Except as required under the federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, we do not have any intention or obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements after we distribute this information statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. 18

DIVIDEND POLICY We do not anticipate paying any dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future because we expect to retain our future earnings for use in the operation and expansion of our business. The declaration and payment of dividends after the distribution, however, will be at the discretion of our board, and will depend, among other things, upon our investment policy and opportunities, results of operations, financial condition, cash requirements, future prospects, and other factors that may be considered relevant by our board of directors, including restrictions on our ability to declare and pay dividends and distributions on our shares of common stock. Georgia law prohibits us from paying dividends or otherwise distributing funds to our shareholders, except out of legally available funds. Accordingly, we cannot pay dividends if as a result, we would be unable to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business, or our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed, if we were to be dissolved at the time of the distribution, to satisfy the preferential rights upon dissolution of shareholders whose preferential rights are superior to those receiving the distribution. 19

CAPITALIZATION The following table sets forth our combined capitalization as of March 31, 2001, on a historical and pro forma basis, to give effect to the distribution as if it had occurred on March 31, 2001. This table should be read in conjunction with "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and our historical and pro forma combined balance sheets, including the notes to those statements, included elsewhere in this information statement. The pro forma information may not necessarily reflect the debt and capitalization of our business in the future or as it would have been had we been a separate, independent company at March 31, 2001, or had the distribution actually been effected on that date. Based upon the relative financial conditions, results of operations, and prospects of our company and Equifax, Equifax determined that $275 million of existing debt would create an appropriate starting capitalization for us. Accordingly, we will make a cash payment to Equifax at the time of the distribution of $275 million. We will use an unsecured revolving line of credit having a three-year term that we intend to enter into prior to the distribution to fund this cash payment to Equifax. March 31, 2001 -----
