Update on TALX

The Latest on the TALX Acquisition

Earlier this month, we cleared two important hurdles along the path for TALX becoming part of Equifax. The first was the expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. The second was the mailing of proxy solicitation materials to TALX shareholders on April 13.

Next up is a special meeting of TALX shareholders scheduled for May 15 in St. Louis, Mo., who will consider and vote upon a proposal to approve the merger agreement. Assuming shareholder approval is obtained, the closing of the transaction will occur on May 16, which will then become the official ‘Day 1’ as TALX joins Equifax.  That’s a faster close than earlier anticipated and will be good news for everyone.

We’re planning a variety of activities to engage employees in both companies in welcome activities. For example, Equifax employees in select offices around the world will have the opportunity to be included in a video to welcome TALX colleagues to the team. We’re also scheduling visits between leaders from both companies to visit various TALX locations and get those employees oriented to Equifax.

In the meantime, Transition teams from both companies continue to meet frequently and have begun brainstorming ideas to ensure we jointly deliver on the promise of the acquisition through TALX’s current mission of being a valued and trusted provider of select outsource services in the Human Resources and Payroll markets.
