Discover Reports 4Q2013 Financial Results

Discover logo 140pxDiscover Financial Services yesterday reported financial results for the fourth quarter of 2013. Discover card sales volume increased 3% year over year while credit card loans resulting from card usage grew 4%. Net charge-off rate for credit card loans increased 4 basis points from the prior quarter to 2.09% and delinquencies over 30 days past due increased 5 basis points from the prior quarter to 1.72%.

The fourth quarter concluded a strong year for Discover, with record net income for 2013," said David Nelms, chairman and CEO of Discover. "Last year, we grew our card receivables faster than the industry and further established ourselves as a leading direct bank and payments company through expanded product offerings and new payments partnerships."

In Discover's Payment Services segment, revenue declined due to lower transaction processing revenue at its PULSE debit card unit.
