    • The sale of H&R Block Bank to BofI Holding (BOFI +4.7%) is expected to close no later than Sept. 30 as the parties have in hand regulatory approvals from the OCC and the Fed.
    • The deal is expected to dilute H&R Block (HRB +8.8%) EPS on an ongoing basis by about $0.08-$0.10 beginning in fiscal year 2016. HRB will also take a one-time $0.02-$0.03 per share charge in FY16.
    • HRB will hold a  (dial-in) conference call at 10 ET.

    • H&R Block (HRB) +7.3% AH after agreeing to sell its banking unit to BofI Federal Bank (BOFI) for an undisclosed price, in a move that takes the tax preparation company out of the banking sector and away from the Fed's oversight.
    • HRB expects the deal to dilute FY 2015 EPS by $0.07-$0.09, and expects to incur one-time transaction related charges of $0.01/share in FY 2014 and $0.02-$0.03 in FY 2015.
    • BOFI +10.1% AH.

    H&R Block's (HRB +2.9%) sale of its banking assets is a positive for several reasons, writes Mark Palmer. First, it removes what had been growing doubt about the ability to unload the deposits at a reasonable price (the sale was for book value). Maybe more importantly, the sale eliminates a level of complexity (and Fed regulation) from HRB, maybe increasing the odds of a takeover a bid. Assessment of the deal's full impact, however, will await details of still-to-be-negotiated revenue sharing agreements.

    H&R Block (HRB +2.4%) rallies after Webush starts coverage with an Outperform and $33 PT. The firm touts H&R's "strong position in the assisted and online tax preparation markets," thinks the Affordable Care Act could lead to higher revenue/filing, and sees potential for the company's reloadable prepaid card business.

    H&R Block's (HRB) 9.2% spike topped today's S&P 500 leaderboard and notched its best day in nearly four years despite posting below-consensus Q4 EPS. Oppenheimer says HRB's data points and upbeat guidance were "sufficiently strong to lead us to expect a strong full tax season result," and BTIG notes the 3.2% dividend “makes it an interesting total-return opportunity."
