Financial Reports

Experian published its Q3 trading results. Revenue grew in constant exchange rate terms, 16% in LATAM, but only 1% in EMEA/APAC.

Brian Cassin, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We delivered a good performance in Q3, in line with our expectations, driven by new products, business wins and consumer expansion. At constant exchange rates, organic revenue growth was 6%, and total revenue growth was 7%. After the impact of foreign exchange rates, total revenue growth was 4%.

“While pressures in the global economy are likely to continue for some time, we expect to remain resilient, supported by the delivery of our growth strategy and growth in countercyclical revenue streams. For the full year, our expectations are unchanged, for organic revenue growth of between 7-9%, total revenue growth of between 8-10% and modest margin accretion, all at constant exchange rates and on an ongoing basis.”

“This is reflected in the raised guidance for 2023 with expected growth of 20-30% in Annual Recurring Revenue and this makes it easier to navigate in the continued turbulent financial climate. A trimmed organization should not be underestimated.”
