DL Gets Reprieve From Credit Card Processor

Fri Aug 26, 2005 1:16 pm

According to the 8-K report filed today (8/25/05), the company has been given an extension to October 31, 2005 on the existing credit card processing contract.

Not really great news since the extensions provides for a holdback by the processor. Note the new expiration date is just prior to the change in Bankruptcy laws.

Just delaying the inevitable.

Interesting development, but I note the extension is for a date after, not before, the new BK laws come into effect. October 17, 2005 is when things change, this extension of the credit card contract is through October 31, 2005.

The 'good' part of it is that the amount of the holdback was less than originally forecast. That amount can then be applied to any future holdback with the new processor (basically this gives DL more time to negotiate a decrease in the amount of any future holdback with the new processor).

The way i read it, they would holdback $625 million by the end of the agreement.

That's basically a withholding of $625 million in revenue in the next 8 weeks.

I think that's pretty serious.
