  • "We experienced delays in rolling out new technology and credit models that are needed to drive continued improvements in credit quality for our US products. As a result of these and other issues, new customer acquisition and credit quality were both relatively flat with the prior year and anticipated improvements in margins were not realized. Additionally, we experienced a significant increase in UK costs related to complaints by claims management companies as well as high legal costs related to several company initiatives. This affected earnings in the quarter and our outlook for the full year."
