(dollars in thousands)
Year over year change in average receivables
Net charge-offs as a percentage of average receivables (1)(2)

May 31, 2018
May 31, 2017
(dollars in thousands)
30 days + delinquencies - principal
Period ended receivables - principal
Delinquency rate (2)
(2) Delinquency and net charge-off rates will be elevated for the first part of 2018 as accounts that were provided a two-month leniency period due to last year's hurricanes will roll through delinquency. In addition, net charge-off
rates will be impacted by lower recovery rates as the Company transitions from third-party sales of written-off
accounts to in-house collections in order to realize higher long-term recovery rates. Both of these factors are
expected to be transitory and dissipate as the year progresses. As such, the Company is targeting a full-year loss rate
