In addition, the company announced a one-year extension of its agreement with its largest bank partner, a three-year extension of its agreement with a different bank partner, and an increase in commitment from a third bank partner of $100 million.

The company gave no update on its ongoing review of strategic alternatives, which was announced in August.
