Chase to Take Washington Mutual’s Card Business In House

Columbus, Ga., December 2, 2008 — TSYS announced today that it has entered into an agreement with JPMorgan Chase (Chase) with respect to the discontinuation of the servicing of Washington Mutual Bank’s (WaMu’s) consumer card portfolio by TSYS. In addition, the parties agreed to an extension of the processing agreement between TSYS and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (Toronto Branch) for its Canadian card business through April 30, 2012. Chase will pay TSYS fees for deconversion and termination which both parties have agreed not to disclose. The deconversion is expected to take place in March 2009 after which Chase will process the WaMu portfolio in house on the technology platform it licenses from TSYS.

NYT: Government Seizes WaMu and Sells Some Assets
Published: September 25, 2008

Washington Mutual, the giant lender that came to symbolize the excesses of the mortgage boom, was seized by federal regulators on Thursday night, in what is by far the largest bank failure in American history. Regulators simultaneously brokered an emergency sale of virtually all of Washington Mutual, the nation’s largest savings and loan, to JPMorgan Chase for $1.9 billion, averting another potentially huge taxpayer bill for the rescue of a failing institution. . .

. . . By taking on all of WaMu’s troubled mortgages and credit card loans, JPMorgan Chase will absorb at least $31 billion in losses that would normally have fallen to the F.D.I.C.
