These factors include, among others, the risks and uncertainties set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company's most recent Annual Report on SEC Form 10-K, as supplemented in subsequent reports on SEC Form 10-Q and 8-K, in particular such risks and uncertainties as:
- student loan portfolio risks such as interest rate basis and repricing risk resulting from the fact that the interest rate characteristics of the student loan assets do not match the interest rate characteristics of the funding for those assets, the risk of loss of floor income on certain student loans originated under the Federal Family Education Loan Program (the “FFEL Program” or “FFELP”) of the U.S. Department of Education (the “Department”), risks related to the use of derivatives to manage exposure to interest rate fluctuations, and risks from changes in levels of student loan prepayment or default rates;
- financing and liquidity risks, including risks of changes in the general interest rate environment and in the securitization and other financing markets for student loans, which may increase the costs or limit the availability of financings necessary to purchase, refinance, or continue to hold student loans;
- risks from changes in the educational credit and services markets resulting from changes in applicable laws, regulations, and government programs, such as the expected decline over time in FFELP loan interest income and fee-based revenues due to the discontinuation of new FFELP loan originations in 2010 and potential government initiatives to consolidate existing FFELP loans to the Federal Direct Loan Program, risks related to the availability of government funds and actual extension of the Companys loan servicing contract with the Department for an additional five years, and the Companys ability to maintain or increase volumes under that contract, and the Companys ability to comply with agreements with third-party customers for the servicing of FFELP and Federal Direct Loan Program loans;
- risks related to a breach of or failure in the Company's operational or information systems or infrastructure, or those of third-party vendors; and
- uncertainties inherent in forecasting future cash flows from student loan assets and related asset-backed securitizations; and
- risks associated with litigation and uncertainties inherent in the estimates and assumptions about future events that management is required to make in the preparation of the Company's consolidated financial statements.
