16. Reportable Operating Segments

The Company is a leading global payments and travel company that is principally engaged in businesses comprising four reportable operating segments: USCS, ICS, GCS and GNMS. Corporate functions and auxiliary businesses, including the Company's publishing business, the Enterprise Growth Group (including the Global Prepaid Group), as well as other company operations are included in Corporate & Other.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2011, the Company changed its segment allocation methodology to better align segment reporting with the Company's previously announced management reorganization, which has been implemented over the last several quarters. The reorganization included the formation of the Enterprise Growth Group, which is reported in the Corporate & Other segment. Starting in the first quarter of 2011, certain business activities such as Loyalty Edge and Global Foreign Exchange Services that were previously managed and reported in the USCS and GCS operating segments, respectively, are now managed by Enterprise Growth and reported in the Corporate & Other segment. The reorganization also included consolidation of certain corporate support functions into the Global Services organization. Greater centralization of activities has led to modifications in the costs being allocated from the Corporate & Other segment to the reported operating segments starting in the first quarter of 2011. Prior period segment results have been revised for these changes.
