On January 13, 2014, Alliance Data Systems Corporation (the "Company") provided notice to the holders of the Company's 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 (the "Convertible Senior Notes due 2014"), which are scheduled to mature on May 15, 2014, that the Company intends to satisfy its obligation for all conversions occurring on or after January 13, 2014 by paying solely cash.

Beginning January 13, 2014, the settlement amount for the Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 will be computed based on a cash settlement averaging period that will extend from March 17, 2014 through May 12, 2014. Such amounts will be paid to the holders of record at the maturity date, which is May 15, 2014.

Separately but concurrently with the sale of the Convertible Senior Notes due 2014, the Company entered into warrant transactions whereby it sold to J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., as agent to JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, London Branch; Bank of America, N.A.; and Barclays Capital Inc., as agent for Barclays Bank PLC warrants to acquire, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, up to approximately 7.3 million shares of the Company's common stock at an initial strike price of approximately $70.54 (the "2014 Convertible Note Warrants"). The 2014 Convertible Note Warrants will be exercisable and will expire in 79 equal tranches of 45,331 warrants and an 80th tranche of 45,405 warrants with respect to Bank of America and will be exercisable and will expire in 79 equal tranches of 22,665 warrants and an 80th tranche of 22,741 or 22,743 with respect to Barclays and JPMorgan, respectively, beginning on August 13, 2014 and continuing on each business day through December 4, 2014. The 2014 Convertible Note Warrants will not be settled at the maturity of the Convertible Senior Notes due 2014.

The Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 are governed by an indenture dated as of June 2, 2009 (the "Indenture") between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, National Association, as trustee. The descriptions of the Indenture contained herein are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such Indenture, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 2, 2009 and is incorporated by reference herein.
