Form 8-K for DISCOVER FINANCIAL SERVICES


12-Dec-2013

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an O


Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation of a Registrant or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On December 12, 2013, Discover Bank (the "Bank"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Discover Financial Services (the "Company"), issued and sold $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 4.200% Notes due 2023 (the "Reopened Notes"). The Reopened Notes constitute a further issuance of, and will be consolidated with, the $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.200% Notes Due 2023 issued by the Bank on August 8, 2013 (the "Original Notes"). The Reopened Notes will have the same CUSIP number as the Original Notes and will trade interchangeably with the Original Notes immediately upon settlement. Upon issuance of the Reopened Notes, the aggregate principal amount of the Bank's 4.200% Notes due 2023 was $1,000,000,000 (the Original Notes and the Reopened Notes are referred to collectively as the "Notes"). The Notes were issued pursuant to a Fiscal and Paying Agency Agreement, dated August 8, 2013 (the "FPAA"), between the Bank, as issuer of the Notes, and U.S. Bank National Association, as fiscal and paying agent. The Notes were issued pursuant to an exemption from registration provided by Section 3(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Notes are direct, unconditional and unsecured general obligations of the Bank and rank pari passu among themselves and all other unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness of the Bank, except deposit liabilities and other obligations that are entitled to any priorities or preferences. The Notes are solely the obligations of the Bank and are neither obligations of, nor guaranteed by, the Company (which is the sole shareholder of the Bank) or any of the Bank's other affiliates.

The Notes mature on August 8, 2023. The Notes will bear interest semi-annually at the rate of 4.200% per annum from August 8, 2013 until the principal of the Notes has been paid in full or a sum sufficient to pay the principal of the Notes has been made available for payment. The Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on February 8 and August 8 of each year, commencing February 8, 2014, and on the date of maturity (each, an "Interest Payment Date"). Payments will include interest accrued to (but excluding) the relevant Interest Payment Date. Interest on the Notes will be calculated on the basis of a 360 day year of twelve 30-day months.

A copy of the FPAA, which includes the form of Note as an exhibit thereto, was filed on August 8, 2013 with the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
