IRVINE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 19, 2020 — CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global provider of property information, insight, analytics, and data-enabled solutions, today provided 2020 financial guidance and confirmed the date of the release of its 2019 fourth quarter 2019 actual results.

“CoreLogic delivered outstanding revenue growth and margins in the second half and fourth quarter of 2019, driven by acceleration in our core mortgage, platform-related and other high-margin businesses. We also capitalized on higher market volumes in the U.S. and ongoing productivity gains which helped us to drive adjusted EBITDA margins above 30% in the fourth quarter," said Frank Martell, President and Chief Executive Officer of CoreLogic. “Our 2020 financial guidance reflects the significant ongoing expansion of our profit margins as well as positive organic revenue growth trends underpinned by unique data, analytics and data-enabled solutions that, collectively, help millions of people find, buy and protect the homes they love,” Martell added.
