Alliance Data Seeks Acquisitions

Melisa Miller, President of Card Services Group of Alliance Data Systems Corporation (NYSE:ADS) said in the first quarter earnings call, "I would tell you the pipeline is rich with, really, three categories. First of all, portfolios that may be available in the marketplace because they feel their current program is under-leveraged or [steeply retired]. You'd think about that as an acquisition. There are some start-over’s and then there are some start-ups. So you'll see us really delicately balancing all three of those."
