DALLAS, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Data Systems Corporation (NYSE: ADS), a leading global provider of data-driven marketing and loyalty solutions, today provided an update on its Card Services segment.

In conjunction with the release of the Company's Master Trust Monthly Noteholder's Statement, the Company is releasing similar metrics for the overall total managed portfolio. The Master Trust data represents a subset of the Company's total managed portfolio, and the Company believes the information presented below provides a more complete view of the Card Services segment.

                                                                                                                                             For the                        For the eight

                                                                                                                                        August 31, 2017                    August 31, 2017

                                                                                                                                                     (dollars in thousands)

    Average receivables                                                                                                                                      $15,744,872                                        $15,765,062

    Year over year change in average receivables                                                                                                                   13%                                               16%

    Net charge-offs                                                                                                                                              $84,113                                           $657,117

    Net charge-offs as a percentage of average receivables(1)(2)                                                                                                  6.4%                                              6.3%


    (1)       Gross loss rates are tracking to Management's expectations of an approximate 50 basis point increase for full year 2017 as compared to 2016. In the first half of 2017, gross loss rates increased approximately
     75 basis points and for the remainder of 2017, gross loss rates are expected to narrow sequentially to approximately 40 basis points in the third quarter and flat in the fourth quarter, as compared to the prior year.


    Net loss rates are expected to be lower in the second half of 2017 as compared to the first half, with the absolute level dependent on the mix of recoveries between third-party sales and in-house collections. As
     compared to third-party sales, in-house collections may result in higher recovery rates, but the timing of recognition may be delayed as the Company increases its in-house collections staff. Net loss rates are
     consistent with the Company's full year 2017 and 2018 consolidated guidance as provided in the Company's second quarter earnings release issued July 20, 2017.


    (2)       Compares to 4.1% and 5.0% for the month and eight months ended August 31, 2016, respectively.
