Item 1112(b) of Regulation AB: Significant obligors of pool assets (Financial information).
     The pool assets held by the American Express Credit Account Master Trust (the “Trust”) do not include any significant obligors.
Item 1114(b)(2) of Regulation AB: Credit enhancement and other support, except for certain derivatives instruments (Financial information).
     Based on the standards set forth in Item 1114(b) of Regulation AB, no information is required in response to this Item.
Item 1115(b) of Regulation AB: Certain derivatives instruments (Financial information).
     Based on the standards set forth in Item 1115(b) of Regulation AB, no information is required in response to this Item.
Item 1117 of Regulation AB: Legal proceedings.
     American Express Company and its affiliates (collectively, “American Express”), including the servicer and the account owners, are, from time to time, subject to various pending or threatened legal proceedings arising out of their card origination, servicing and merchant network services activities. The potential effect of these lawsuits on the certificates issued by the trust cannot be predicted at this time. American Express has been named in a number of purported class actions in which the plaintiffs allege an unlawful antitrust tying arrangement between American Express’ charge cards, on the one hand, and its credit cards and debit cards, on the other, in violation of various state and federal laws. The plaintiffs in these actions seek injunctive relief and an unspecified amount of damages. With the exception of one case pending in California, the cases have been consolidated under the caption “In re American Express Merchants’ Litigation” in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. American Express filed a motion to dismiss all of the actions that were filed in the Southern District of New York prior to April 30, 2004, and, with respect to the case pending in California, to stay the action pending resolution of the motion to dismiss. On March 15, 2006, the District Court granted American Express’ motion, with the District Court finding the claims of those merchants whose card acceptance agreement contained an arbitration clause to be subject to arbitration. That decision was appealed, and in January 2009, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

 


Table of Contents

reversed the District Court. The parties have requested a conference with the District Court to discuss next steps in light of the Second Circuit’s ruling. American Express has filed with the U.S. Supreme Court a petition of certiorari with the Supreme Court from the arbitration ruling of the Second Circuit. That petition is pending. Furthermore, to date the California action continues to be stayed. American Express also filed a motion to dismiss a separate action filed in the Southern District of New York in July 2004, which motion was denied in July 2005. On October 1, 2007, the plaintiffs in such action filed a motion seeking certification of a class, which American Express has opposed. In September 2008, each of American Express and the plaintiffs also moved for summary judgment in their favor in such action. A decision on the summary judgment motions is pending. In March 2009, the court denied the plaintiffs’ motion for class certification without prejudice to renew upon resolution of the pending summary judgment motion.
     Additionally, claims have been filed against American Express challenging contract provisions that prohibit merchants from attempting to switch cardmembers to other forms of payment and that prohibit merchants from discriminating against the American Express Card by placing restrictions on card use (such as surcharging) that are not placed on cards issued by competitors. These claims are also pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, and the Court has filed a scheduling order in the case. In addition, several claims have also been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York alleging that American Express’ “antisteering” rules found in its merchant acceptance agreements violate federal antitrust laws. The plaintiffs filed these actions as being “related to” an action filed in the Eastern District against Visa, MasterCard and certain others (but not American Express). American Express filed its answer to these complaints and also filed a motion to dismiss these complaints as time barred. The Court has not yet ruled on the motion to dismiss and has entered a scheduling order in the action.
     In June 2009, a putative class action was filed against Centurion in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint seeks to certify a class of American Express cardmembers with billing addresses in 16 different states “whose interest rates on their outstanding balances were retroactively increased” by Centurion. The complaint seeks, among other things, damages “in excess of $5,000,000” and unspecified injunctive relief. On December 7, 2009, the Court ordered that the matter be stayed pending decisions on relevant legal issues in other cases not involving American Express.
     In October 2009, a putative class action was filed against Centurion and FSB in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint seeks to certify a nationwide class of American Express cardmembers whose interest rates were changed from fixed to variable in or around August 2009 or otherwise increased. American Express filed a motion to compel arbitration, and plaintiff has indicated they will amend their complaint to limit the class to California residents only.
     During the last few years as regulatory interest in credit card network pricing to merchants and related issues has increased, American Express has responded to many inquiries from banking and competition authorities throughout the world. On October 14, 2008, American Express received a Civil Investigative Demand (CID), dated October 10, 2008, from the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). A CID is a request for information in the course of a civil investigation and does not constitute the commencement of legal proceedings. The DOJ is permitted by statute to issue a CID to anyone whom it believes may have information relevant to an investigation. The receipt of a CID does not presuppose that there is probable cause to believe that a violation of the antitrust laws has occurred or that a formal complaint ultimately will be filed. The DOJ has requested the production of documents and information regarding American Express’s policies relating to merchant surcharging and its “anti-steering” policies that prohibit merchants from discriminating against the Card in favor of other forms of payment. American Express is cooperating with the DOJ’s request. American Express has also received a similar civil investigative demand from the attorney general of the State of Ohio. These investigations are ongoing.

     Information required by Item 1119 of Regulation AB has been omitted from this report on Form 10-K in reliance on the Instruction to Item 1119.
Item 1122 of Regulation AB: Compliance with Applicable Servicing Criteria.
     Each of American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc. (“TRS”), for itself and on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Amex Card Services Company (“ACSC”), American Express Centurion Bank and American Express Bank, FSB, and Regulus Group LLC, for itself and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (“Regulus”) and The Bank of New York Mellon (each, a “Servicing Participant”) has been identified by the registrant as a party participating in the servicing function with respect to the pool assets held by the American Express Credit Account Master Trust. Each of the Servicing Participants has completed a report on an assessment of compliance with the servicing criteria applicable to such Servicing Participant (each, a “Report on Assessment”) as of and for the year

 


Table of Contents

ended December 31, 2009, which Reports on Assessment are attached as exhibits to this Form 10-K. In addition, each of the Servicing Participants has provided an attestation report (each, an “Attestation Report”) by a registered independent public accounting firm regarding its related Report on Assessment. Each Attestation Report is attached as an exhibit to this Form 10-K.
Vendors
     A Servicing Participant may engage one or more vendors, who are not considered servicers for purposes of Regulation AB, to perform specific and limited, or scripted activities that address all or a portion of one or more servicing criteria applicable to such Servicing Participant. In general in these cases, the Servicing Participant has instituted policies and procedures to monitor whether such vendors’ activities comply in all material respects with such servicing criteria, and may elect to take responsibility for assessing compliance with the servicing criteria applicable to such vendors’ activities in such Servicing Participant’s Report on Assessment. Where the Servicing Participant has not instituted such policies and procedures, or where the Servicing Participant does not otherwise elect to take responsibility for assessing its vendors’ activities, the vendor is itself treated as a Servicing Participant and is required to provide its own Report on Assessment and related Attestation Report.
Exceptions
     Except as disclosed below, no Report on Assessment or related Attestation Report has identified any material instance of noncompliance with the servicing criteria identified in such Report on Assessment as applicable to the related Servicing Participant. In addition, no Report on Assessment or related Attestation Report has identified any material deficiency in such Servicing Participant’s policies and procedures to monitor vendor compliance.
     The Bank of New York Mellon: The Bank of New York Mellon’s Report on Assessment and related Attestation Report have identified material noncompliance with one servicing criterion applicable to The Bank of New York Mellon. Specifically, with regard to servicing criterion 1122(d)(2)(i) (which contemplates that payments on pool assets are deposited into the appropriate custodial bank accounts and related bank clearing accounts within the time frames specified in the transaction agreements), certain payments on pool assets were not deposited into the appropriate segregated custodial bank account within the timeframe required by the related transaction documents. The Bank of New York Mellon indicates that the segregated account relating to each specified series of securities was in existence prior to the time deposits were to be made into such account but such account was not utilized in all instances by the trustee as stated above.
     The Bank of New York Mellon further indicates in its Report on Assessment that (i) payments related to each specified series of securities were timely remitted to the investors in such series, and (ii) existing procedures have been reviewed with staff to enable future payments to be deposited into the segregated account for each specified series within the applicable timeframes. We have not independently verified the accuracy of The Bank of New York Mellon’s assertions or the adequacy of its remediation efforts.
Platform Level Reports
     Regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) require that each Servicing Participant complete a Report on Assessment at a “platform” level, meaning that the transactions covered by the Report on Assessment should include all asset backed securities transactions involving such Servicing Participant that are backed by the same asset type. During 2009, TRS’ proprietary facilities conducted paper payment remittance processing services and performed billing disputes services. Regulus also performed paper payment remittance processing services at three locations in the United States. As a remittance processor, Regulus is responsible for, among other services, transmitting payment information to TRS, which TRS in turn uses to update its account obligor records. In its Report on Assessment attached as Exhibit 33.2 to this Form 10-K, Regulus defines its platform to include (i) remittance processing services it provides to customers who are issuers or servicers of asset backed securities transactions and (ii) who have requested confirmation of Regulus’ compliance in connection with loan and/or receivables portfolios that include pool assets for asset backed securities transactions. In addition, eFunds Corporation (“eFunds”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fidelity National Information Services, Inc., also performs billing disputes services at its Gurgaon and Mumbai, India sites. Within guidelines prescribed by TRS, eFunds is responsible for all aspects of billing disputes, from front end capture of information to the resolution of disputes between cardmembers and merchants. The Bank of New York Mellon is Trustee of the Trust. In its Report on Assessment attached as Exhibit 33.3 to this Form 10-K, The Bank of New York Mellon defines its platform to include (i) publicly issued asset-backed securities issued on or after January 1, 2006 (and like-kind transactions

 


Table of Contents

issued prior to January 1, 2006), and (ii) for which The Bank of New York Mellon provides trustee, securities administration, or paying agent services, other than residential mortgage-backed securities and other mortgage-related asset-backed securities.
     None of TRS or the Trust is an affiliate of Regulus or The Bank of New York Mellon.
Item 1123 of Regulation AB: Servicer Compliance Statement.
     Each of TRS, ACSC, American Express Centurion Bank, American Express Bank, FSB and Regulus has been identified by the registrant as a servicer or subservicer with respect to the pool assets held by the Trust. Each of them has provided a Statement of Compliance for the period covered by this Form 10-K (a “Compliance Statement”), in each case signed by an authorized officer thereof. Each Compliance Statement is attached as an exhibit to this Form 10-K.
