Item 8.01 Other Events
Discover Bank, on behalf of the holder of the Seller Certificate, has previously designated for Discover Card Master Trust I (the Trust) certain Discover Card accounts originated by Discover Bank pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated Pooling and Servicing Agreement dated as of June 4, 2010, as amended (the Pooling and Servicing Agreement), between Discover Bank, as Master Servicer, Servicer and Seller and U.S. Bank National Association, as Trustee. Capitalized terms used in this Item 8.01 and not defined herein shall have the meanings given to them in the Pooling and Servicing Agreement, which is on file with the SEC.
As of September 30, 2011, the Receivables in the Accounts designated for the Trust totaled $33,403,609,700.91 and the total number of Accounts was 22,446,543. Also, as of September 30, 2011, the average account balance was $2,701 (using 12,368,194 active accounts designated for the Trust for which cardmembers had a balance, a monetary transaction, or authorization within the past month), and the average credit limit was $9,484.
We have set forth additional information below about the Accounts that are designated for the Trust.
Geographic Distribution. As of September 30, 2011, the following nine states had the largest Receivables balances and comprised over 50% of the Receivables:
Since the largest amounts of outstanding Receivables (approximately 5% or more of total Receivables) were with cardholders whose billing addresses were in California, Texas, New York, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio, adverse changes in the business or economic conditions in these states could have an adverse effect on the performance of the Receivables.
Credit Limit Information. As of September 30, 2011, the Accounts had the following credit limits:
Account Balance Information. As of September 30, 2011, the Accounts had the following balances:
Seasoning. As of September 30, 2011, all of the Accounts were at least 36 months old. The ages of the Accounts as of September 30, 2011 were distributed as follows:
Delinquency Information. As of September 30, 2011, the Accounts in the Trust had the following delinquency statuses:
Minimum Monthly Payment and Full Balance Payment Rates. Discover Bank calculates the monthly rate of cardmembers that made only the contractual monthly minimum payment due and the monthly rate of cardmembers that paid their full balance due as a percentage of the total Accounts in each case as of the beginning of the month. The rates below are the average of monthly rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
Balance Reductions. The Accounts designated for the Trust may have balance reductions granted for a number of reasons, including merchandise refunds, returns, and fraudulent charges. As of the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the average monthly balance reduction rate for the Accounts designated for the Trust attributable to such refunds, returns and cardmember fraud was 0.59%.
Distribution of the Accounts by FICO® Score. A FICO® score is a measurement derived from a proprietary credit scoring method owned by Fair Isaac Corporation to determine the likelihood that credit users will pay their bills. Although Fair Isaac Corporation discloses only limited information about the variables it uses to assess credit risk, those variables likely include, but are not limited to, debt level, credit history, payment patterns (including delinquency experience), and level of utilization of available credit. FICO® scores for any one individual may be determined by up to three independent credit bureaus. In determining whether to grant credit to a potential account holder, Discover Bank uses a FICO® score as reported by one particular credit bureau. Therefore, certain FICO® scores for an individual account holder based upon information collected by other credit bureaus could be different from the FICO® score used by Discover Bank. FICO® scores of an individual may change over time, depending on the conduct of the individual, including the individuals usage of his or her available credit, and changes in credit score technology used by Fair Isaac Corporation.
FICO® scores are based on independent, third-party information, the accuracy of which we cannot verify. Discover Bank does not use standardized credit scores, such as a FICO® score, alone to determine the credit limit or other terms that are approved or applied on an account. Rather, a FICO® score is one of many factors used by Discover Bank to assess an individuals credit and default risk prior to initially approving an account or changing the terms of an account. To the extent available, FICO® scores are generally obtained at origination of the account and monthly or quarterly thereafter. Because the composition of the Accounts designated for the Trust may change over time, this table is not necessarily indicative of FICO® scores at origination of the Accounts or the composition of the accounts in the Trust at any specific time thereafter.
During September 2011, Discover Bank began using FICO® scores derived from a more current credit scoring model as one factor to assess the credit and default risk of the Discover card portfolio, including the accounts designated for the Trust. As a result of this change, the FICO® scores of the accounts designated for the Trust generally increased. The following table reflects the Receivables as of September 30, 2011, and the composition of Accounts by FICO® score as refreshed during September 2011:
Performance information for the Accounts in the Trust, such as yield, charge-offs and payment rate, is made available in connection with the Trust's Form 10-D filings.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
