This site includes links to other Internet websites and resources provided by third parties. These websites and resources are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by Alliance Data of the contents of (or any product or services available from) such other sites.

This site contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events and can generally be identified by the use of words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “project” or other words or phrases of similar import. Similarly, statements that describe our business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions or goals also are forward-looking statements.
We believe that our expectations are based on reasonable assumptions. Forward-looking statements, however, are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the projections, anticipated results or other expectations expressed in this site, and no assurances can be given that our expectations will prove to have been correct. See the Risk Factors section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the most recently ended fiscal year for a discussion of these risks and uncertainties. The risk factors may be updated in Item 1A of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed for periods subsequent to our most recently filed Form 10-K.
Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and we undertake no obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.
No Investment Advice or Offer Solicitation
Nothing in this site, including our SEC filings, constitutes investment advice. We provide investor relations materials for your convenience and information only. In addition, investor relations materials and our other site content are not offers to sell or solicitations of an offer to buy any security.
There are no guarantees about the future performance of the stock market or our stock. Before you invest in any security you should protect yourself by becoming an educated investor. We recommend that, at a minimum, you read our latest annual report and Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Form 8-K reports filed with or furnished to the SEC over the past year. Our recent proxy statements for shareholder meetings also contain important information. It is also advisable to learn more about us and our industry through a variety of publicly available materials.
