On December 12, 2022, Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. (the “Company”) determined that a ransomware cyber-incident had impacted and disrupted a number of the Company’s operational and information technology systems. Promptly upon detecting and containing the incident, the Company launched an investigation and engaged the services of cyber-security experts and advisors, incident response professionals, and external counsel to support the investigation. The Company has notified law enforcement authorities of the incident. While the Company’s investigation is ongoing, based on our analysis to date and due to the Company’s data encryption protocols, we do not believe that client, customer, family or employee data have been compromised. Since the incident was identified and contained, the Company has been working to restore operational and business systems and functionality and we have been in communication with clients and customers about the restoration progress. Although the Company is in the early stages of investigating and assessing the incident, based on the information currently known, the Company currently does not expect the incident to have a material impact on its business, operations or financial results. The Company carries insurance, including cyber insurance, which we believe is commensurate with the size and the nature of its operations.
