IHS Markit (NYSE: INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions, today reconfirmed its 2020 and 2021 financial guidance as presented during the company’s third quarter 2020 earnings call on September 29, 2020.
"Given the dynamic end-market conditions, we committed to providing an increased level of transparency throughout the COVID period to the investment community. We provided our initial 2021 financial guidance earlier this year, which we updated during our Q3 earnings call. Today, we are reconfirming it and will therefore not need to hold a guidance call in November as we have in previous years," said Lance Uggla, chairman and chief executive officer of IHS Markit.
The webcast replay and supplemental information for third quarter 2020 results, which includes 2020 and 2021 financial guidance, are posted at IHS Markit’s Investor Relations website at the following url: https://investor.ihsmarkit.com/news-releases/news-release-details/ihs-markit-reports-third-quarter-2020-results.
As previously announced, IHS Markit will participate and present virtually at the J.P. Morgan 2020 Ultimate Services Investor Conference on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at approximately 2:05 p.m. EST. A live webcast of the presentation will be available at https://investor.ihsmarkit.com.
This communication contains "forward-looking statements" as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which express management’s current views concerning future business, events, trends, contingencies, financial performance, or financial condition, appear at various places in this communication and use words like "aim," "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "future," "goal," "intend," "likely," "may," "might," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "see," "seek," "should," "strategy," "strive," "target," "will," and "would" and similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding: guidance and predictions relating to expected operating results, such as revenue growth and earnings; strategic actions such as acquisitions, joint ventures, and dispositions, the anticipated benefits therefrom, and our success in integrating acquired businesses; anticipated levels of capital expenditures in future periods; anticipated levels of indebtedness, capital allocation, dividends, and share repurchases in future periods; our belief that we have sufficient liquidity to fund our ongoing business operations; expectations of the effect on our financial condition of claims, litigation, environmental costs, contingent liabilities, and governmental and regulatory investigations and proceedings; and our strategy for customer retention, growth, product development, market position, financial results, and reserves. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on management’s current beliefs, expectations, and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy, and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements are more fully discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, along with our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). However, those factors should not be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are based only on information currently available to our management and speaks only as of the date of this communication. We do not assume any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. Please consult our public filings with the SEC or on our website at investor.ihsmarkit.com.
