Item 2.02 Results of Operations

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, American Express Credit Corporation (the “Company”) will report (a) net loss of $603 million compared to net income of $197 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, (b) provisions for losses of $244 million compared to $151 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 and (c) a ratio of earnings to fixed charges of 1.50 compared to 1.62 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016. The year over year decrease in net income reflects an increase in tax provision due to U.S. tax reforms, as described below.

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”). The Tax Act makes broad and complex changes to the U.S. federal corporate income tax rules.  Most notably, effective January 1, 2018, the Tax Act reduces the U.S. federal statutory corporate income tax rate (the “federal tax rate”) from 35 percent to 21 percent, introduces a territorial tax system in which future dividends paid from earnings outside the U.S. to a U.S. corporation are not subject to U.S. federal taxation and imposes new U.S. federal corporate income taxes on certain foreign operations.

Two provisions of the Tax Act drove a 2017 charge of $858 million which impacted the Company’s earnings in the fourth quarter.  In particular, the Tax Act imposes a one-time deemed repatriation tax on undistributed earnings of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries. In addition, the reduction of the federal tax rate required the Company to remeasure its U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities from 35 percent to the lower rate of 21 percent. The 2017 charge for these items reflects the Company’s best estimate based on information currently available and the Company’s current interpretation of the Tax Act.




 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 hereunto duly authorized.
