The GEI provides insight into an important area of ESG data reporting

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, January 26, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evertec, Inc. (NYSE: EVTC) ("Evertec" or the "Company") today announced that for the fourth consecutive year it is one of 418 companies across 45 countries and regions selected for the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). The 2022 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) is a modified market capitalization-weighted index that aims to track the performance of public companies committed to transparency in gender-data reporting. This reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership & talent pipeline, equal pay & gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand.

The 2022 GEI expands globally to represent 45 countries and regions, including firms headquartered in Colombia and Uruguay for the first time. Member companies represent a variety of sectors, including financials, technology, and utilities, which collectively have the highest company representation in the index.

Mac Schuessler, President and CEO of Evertec, stated: "To be recognized by the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index for four consecutive years is a source of great pride for Evertec, especially as it demonstrates our strong commitment to ensure diversity and inclusion within our business."

"We are proud to recognize Evertec and the other 418 companies included in the 2022 GEI for their commitment to transparency and setting a new standard in gender-related data reporting," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. "Even though the threshold for inclusion in the GEI has risen, the member list continues to grow. This is a testament that more companies are working to improve upon their gender-related metrics, fostering more opportunity for diverse talent to succeed in their organizations."

The GEI is voluntary and have no associated costs. Bloomberg collected this data for reference purposes only. The index is not ranked. While all public companies are encouraged to disclose supplemental gender data for their company’s investment profile on the Bloomberg Terminal®, those that have a market capitalization of USD 1 billion are eligible for inclusion in the Index.
