In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has offered forbearance programs to affected cardholders, which provide for short-term modifications in the form of payment deferrals and late fee waivers to borrowers who were current as of their most recent billing cycle prior to the announcement of the forbearance programs. Those accounts receiving forbearance relief may not advance to the next delinquency cycle, including eventually to charge-off, in the same timeframe that would have occurred had the forbearance relief not been granted. Thus, delinquency rates may be impacted by the forbearance relief granted in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.
