Discover Profit Falls Due to Year-Ago Settlement

Monday, 20 September 2010 09:21 AM

Credit card company Discover Financial Inc. says third-quarter net income fell, but profit would have nearly doubled excluding a big boost from a lawsuit settlement last year.

Net income was $258.2 million, or 47 cents cents per share. That compares with $552.9 million, or $1.07 per share, last year, which included a $287 million settlement of antitrust litigation involving Visa and MasterCard.

Revenue fell 7 percent to $1.71 billion.

Wall Street expected the Riverwoods, Ill., company to post earnings of 38 cents per share on $1.66 billion in revenue.

Card sales volume rose 5 percent. Loans over 30 days past due fell, and Discover wrote off fewer uncollectable balances.

Shares rose 83 cents, or 5.3 percent, to $16.40 in premarket trading.
