Our journey together as Synchrony began on July 31, 2014 with an initial public offering of 125 million shares on the New York Stock Exchange. It marked our first official step in separating from General Electric Corporation and our former identity as GE Capital Retail Finance.
On November 17, 2015, Synchrony officially became a fully independent company with the finalization of an exchange offer on the remaining SYF shares held by GE.
While our company is officially new, we've been around for a long time. Our roots trace back to the Great Depression, when we began serving consumers by financing purchases of GE appliances. Since then, we have grown into the largest provider of private label credit cards in the United States (based on purchase volume and receivables) and provide a diverse range of credit products that continue to help consumers finance their purchases of goods and services. That includes not only private label, but also co-branded credit cards, promotional financing and installment lending, loyalty programs, and Optimizer+plus branded FDIC-insured savings products through Synchrony Bank.
