This presentation by Morgan Stanley is copyrighted and proprietary, and all rights are reserved. Any recording, rebroadcast or other use of this presentation, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of Morgan Stanley is prohibited. 

This presentation is based on information generally available to the public and does not contain any material, nonpublic information. No representation is made that it is accurate or complete. The presentation has been prepared solely for information purposes, it is not a solicitation of any offer to buy or sell any security or instrument, and has not been updated since it was originally presented. 

This presentation may contain forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made, which reflect management's current estimates, projections, expectations or beliefs and which are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially. In particular, the Company's ability to effect a sale of the Company's aircraft leasing business, to realize the full extent of cost savings or benefits from such sale and to assure that subsequent developments (including the ultimate structure, pricing and timing of the transaction) do not cause actual charges to exceed the currently estimated charges to be incurred in the transaction may cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's current estimates, projections, expectations or beliefs. In addition, the future performance of Discover Financial Services is subject to numerous risks impacting the credit card industry that may cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's current estimates, projections and beliefs, including: rising cost of funds pressuring spreads; slow industry growth with rising payment rates; future loan loss rate uncertainty, especially given bankruptcy reform and changing minimum payment requirements; and a consolidating industry with competitive pressures and increasing marketing constraints. For a discussion of additional risks and uncertainties that may affect the future results of the Company, please see "Forward-Looking Statements" immediately preceding Part I, Item 1, "Competition" and "Regulation" in Part I, Item 1 and "Certain Factors Affecting Results of Operations" in Part II, Item 7 of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2004 and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended February 28, 2005 and May 31, 2005 and in other items throughout the Form 10-K and Forms 10-Q. 

The presentation may also include certain non-GAAP financial measures. The reconciliation of such measures to the comparable GAAP figures are included in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our Current Reports on 8-K, which are available on our Web site
