Cyprus and top EU officials strike a preliminary deal regarding the terms of a rescue package. Deposits below €100K will be transferred from Cyprus Popular Bank (the "bad bank") to the Bank of Cyprus (the "good bank"). Furthermore, deposits above €100K at Cyprus Popular will be taxed and the bank will be shut down. The Bank of Cyprus will reportedly take on all of Cyprus Popular's ELA obligations to the ECB which total ~ €9B.
