Today American Express Company (NYSE:AXP) furnished with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) its monthly Current Report on Form 8-K containing the delinquency and write-off statistics for the U.S. Card Services operating segment’s Card Member loans held for investment. During December 2015, the Company reclassified the Card Member loans related to its co-brand partnerships with Costco Wholesale Corporation in the U.S. and JetBlue Airways Corporation to Card Member loans held for sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
As noted in the filing with the SEC, the sale of the Costco portfolio is subject to the outcome of ongoing discussions. The current expectation is that the Costco portfolio sale will close mid-year. The sale of the JetBlue portfolio is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to be finalized in the first quarter of 2016.
As previously announced, the Company's financial results for fourth quarter and full-year 2015 are scheduled to be announced shortly after the market closes on Thursday, January 21, 2016. The Company will host a live audio webcast of its earnings conference call at 5:00 p.m. (ET) that day.
The call will discuss the Company’s 2015 results and 2016-2017 outlook. It will be hosted by Kenneth I. Chenault, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Jeffrey C. Campbell, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
The live audio webcast will be accessible to the general public through the American Express Investor Relations website at http://ir.americanexpress.com. Earnings presentation materials will be posted on the website prior to the conference call and an audio replay will be available on the website following the call.
