American Express Company
American Express Company was founded in 1850 as a joint stock association and was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York in 1965. The Company is a leading global payments, network and travel company that offers its products and services throughout the world.

Products and Services

We provide a variety of products and services worldwide, including, among others:

global card network services;

charge card and credit cards for consumers and businesses worldwide;

consumer and small business lending products;

American Express® Travelers Cheques and Gift Cards;

business expense management products and services;

business travel and travel management services;

consumer travel services;

merchant acquiring and transaction processing;

point-of-sale and back-office products and services for merchants;

banking services to individuals and financial institutions outside the United States; and

magazine publishing.

In certain countries we have granted licenses to partially-owned affiliates and unaffiliated entities to offer some of these products and services.

Our general purpose card network and card issuing businesses are global in scope. We are a world leader in providing charge and credit cards to consumers, small businesses and corporations. These cards, which include cards issued by American Express as well as cards issued by third-party banks and other institutions that are accepted on the American Express network (collectively, “Cards”), are currently issued in over 45 currencies. In 2005, our worldwide billed business (spending on American Express® cards, including Cards issued by third parties) was $484.4 billion. Our Cards permit Cardmembers to charge purchases of goods and services in most countries around the world at the millions of merchants that accept cards bearing our logo. We added a net total of 5.6 million cards in 2005, bringing total worldwide Cards-in-force to 71.0 million (including Cards issued by third parties).

Spend-Centric Model is Competitive Advantage

We believe that our “spend-centric” business model (in which we focus primarily on generating revenues by driving spending on our Cards and secondarily by finance charges and fees) has significant competitive advantages. Card issuers generate the majority of their income through some combination of customer spending (which generates payments from merchants for card transactions), lending (which generates finance charges on revolving credit balances) and customer fees. We have strength in all three revenue streams, and we have a competitive edge in spending. On average, U.S. Cardmembers spend close to four times as much on their American Express Cards as they do on MasterCard and VISA cards. For merchants, our Cardmembers’ higher spending represents greater value to them in the form of higher sales and loyal customers, which gives us the ability to earn a premium discount rate. As a result, we can generate higher revenues from spending and have the flexibility to offer more attractive rewards and other incentives to keep customers spending more on their Cards and offer marketing programs to merchants to enable them to attract high-spending Cardmember customers. This, in turn, drives more business to merchants that accept our Card products. This business model, along with our closed loop network, in which we are both the card issuer and the merchant acquirer, gives us a competitive advantage that we seek to leverage to provide more value to Cardmembers, merchants and Card-issuing partners.


Our network competes with other charge and credit card networks, including, among others, VISA, MasterCard, Diners Club (which, in the United States, has been folded into the network operated by MasterCard), Discover, a business unit of Morgan Stanley (primarily in the United States), and JCB Co., Ltd. (primarily in Asia). The principal competitive factors that affect the network business include:

the number of cards-in-force and amount of spending on these Cards;

the quantity and quality of the establishments where the Cards can be used;

the economic attractiveness to card issuers and merchant acquirers of participating in the network;

the success of marketing and promotional campaigns;

reputation and brand recognition;

innovation in systems, technology and product offerings;

the quality of customer service; and

the security of Cardmember and merchant information.

Our proprietary Card business encounters substantial and intense competition. As a card issuer, we compete in the United States with financial institutions (such as Citibank, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, MBNA and Capital One Financial) that are members of the VISA and/or MasterCard associations and that issue general purpose credit cards, primarily under revolving credit plans, on one or both of those systems, and the Morgan Stanley affiliate that issues the Discover Card on the Discover Business Services network. We also encounter limited competition from businesses that issue their own cards or otherwise extend credit to their customers, such as retailers and airline associations, although these cards are not generally substitutes for our Cards because of their limited acceptance. Because of continuing consolidations among banking and financial services companies and credit card portfolio acquisitions by major card issuers, there are now a smaller number of significant issuers and the largest issuers have continued to grow using their greater resources, economies of scale and brand recognition to compete.

the number and location of merchants willing to accept the form of payment;

the availability to the consumer of other forms of payment;

the amount of fees charged to the consumer;

the compensation paid to, and frequency of settlement by, selling outlets;

the accessibility of sales and refunds for the products;

the success of marketing and promotional campaigns; and

the ability to service the customer satisfactorily, including for lost or stolen instruments.

Our prepaid cards (cards that can be used at many different unaffiliated locations) compete with all of the same payment methods; however, gift cards compete primarily with cash, checks and store-specific gift cards.

Competition in the commercial card (Corporate Card and CPS) business is increasingly intense at both the card network and card issuer levels. At the network level, Diners Club (which, as mentioned above, has been folded into the network operated by MasterCard in the United States and Canada) remains a significant global competitor. In addition, both VISA and MasterCard have increased efforts to support card issuers such as U.S. Bank, JPMorgan Chase, GE Capital Financial Inc. and Citibank (in the United States and globally), who are willing to build and support data collection and reporting necessary to satisfy customer requirements. In the past few years, MasterCard has promoted enhanced web-based support for its corporate card issuing members, and VISA International supported the creation of a joint venture by a number of its member banks from around the world to compete against us and Diners Club for the business of multinational companies. The key competitive factors in the commercial card business are, in addition to the factors cited above under “U.S. Card Services – Competition – Card Issuing Business;

the ability to capture and deliver detailed transaction data and expense management reports;

the number and types of businesses that accept the cards;


the range and innovativeness of products and services to suit business needs;

quality of customer services; and

global presence.
