Financial report summary

  • Difficult conditions in the business and economic environment, as well as political conditions in the United States and elsewhere, may materially adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • Our business is subject to the effects of geopolitical events, weather, natural disasters and other conditions.
  • The exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union could materially adversely impact our business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • Our operating results may materially suffer because of substantial and increasingly intense competition worldwide in the payments industry.
  • We face intense competition for partner relationships, which could result in a loss or renegotiation of these arrangements that could have a material adverse impact on our business and results of operations.
  • Arrangements with our business partners represent a significant portion of our business. We are exposed to risks associated with our business partners, including reputational issues, business slowdowns, bankruptcies, liquidations, restructurings and consolidations, and the possible obligation to make payments to our partners.

  • Surcharging or steering by merchants could materially adversely affect our business and results of operations.

  • Our brand and reputation are key assets of our Company, and our business may be materially affected by how we are perceived in the marketplace.
  • A major information or cyber security incident or an increase in fraudulent activity could lead to reputational damage to our brand and material legal, regulatory and financial exposure, and could reduce the use and acceptance of our charge and credit cards.
  • The uninterrupted operation of our information systems is critical to our success and a significant disruption could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
  • We rely on third-party providers for acquiring and servicing customers, technology, platforms and other services integral to the operations of our businesses. These third parties may act in ways that could materially harm our business.

  • We may not be successful in realizing the benefits associated with our acquisitions, strategic alliances, joint ventures and investment activity, and our business and reputation could be materially adversely affected.
  • Our success is dependent on maintaining a culture of integrity and respect as well as upon our executive officers and other key personnel, and misconduct by or loss of key personnel could materially adversely affect our business.
  • Our business is subject to comprehensive government regulation and supervision, which could materially adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Litigation and regulatory actions could subject us to significant fines, penalties, judgments and/or requirements resulting in significantly increased expenses, damage to our reputation and/or a material adverse effect on our business.
  • Legal proceedings regarding provisions in our merchant contracts could have a material adverse effect on our business and result in additional litigation and/or arbitrations, substantial monetary damages and damage to our reputation and brand.
  • We are subject to capital adequacy and liquidity rules, and if we fail to meet these rules, our business would be materially adversely affected.
  • We are subject to restrictions that limit our ability to pay dividends and repurchase our capital stock. Our subsidiaries are also subject to restrictions that limit their ability to pay dividends to us, which may adversely affect our liquidity.
  • Regulation in the areas of privacy, data protection, account access and information and cyber security could increase our costs and affect or limit our business opportunities and how we collect and/or use personal information.
  • We may not be able to effectively manage the operational, conduct and compliance risks to which we are exposed.
  • If we are not able to protect our intellectual property, or successfully defend against any infringement or misappropriation assertions brought against us, our revenue and profitability could be negatively affected.

  • Adverse financial market conditions may significantly affect our ability to meet liquidity needs, access to capital and cost of capital.
  • Any reduction in our and our subsidiaries’ credit ratings could increase the cost of our funding from, and restrict our access to, the capital markets and have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Adverse currency fluctuations and foreign exchange controls could decrease earnings we receive from our international operations and impact our capital.
  • An inability to accept or maintain deposits due to market demand or regulatory constraints could materially adversely affect our liquidity position and our ability to fund our business.
