PayPal Completes Sale of Consumer Credit Receivables to Synchrony

| By:

Yesterday, PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) announced the closing of its sale of $7.6 billion of consumer credit receivables to Synchrony (NYSE:SYF) for roughly $6.8 billion. At the end of 2017, PayPay announced that it had agreed to sell consumer credit receivables to Synchrony Financial as a part of an expanded relationship between the two companies.

The completion of yesterday’s transaction means that PayPal and Synchrony have extended their existing co-brand consumer credit card program agreement, and Synchrony is now the exclusive issuer of the PayPal Credit online consumer financing program in the U.S., through 2028.

“We’re pleased that we’ve completed the sale of our U.S. consumer credit receivables portfolio,” said President and CEO of PayPal Dan Schulman. “Our agreement with Synchrony accomplishes every goal we set out for our asset light strategy. We look forward to working with Synchrony to double down on our innovative consumer credit experiences for our customers and profitably grow the portfolio over time.”

The relationship between PayPal and Synchrony is not at all new. The two companies have partnered to offer PayPal-branded consumer credit cards to consumers since 2004. Synchrony will update the financial impact of this transaction in its second quarter 2018 earnings call.
