11:19 EDTFMDFirst Marblehead announces IRS withdrawing proposed adjustments
First Marblehead announced that the Internal Revenue Service has informed the company that it is no longer challenging the federal tax refunds the company previously received in the amounts of $176.6M and $45.1M. As the company has previously disclosed, the IRS had issued Notices of Proposed Adjustment, or NOPAs, in September 2013 that proposed to disallow the loss that resulted in the tax refunds, as well as require the company to include income from the trust certificate of NC Residuals Owners Trust from the March 31, 2009 sale date through June 30, 2011 in its taxable income for such years. The company expects to receive formal written confirmation of the IRS's decision not to make these adjustments during 3Q15. As for all refunds in excess of $2M, the IRS's decision is subject to the review of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, First Marblehead noted.

10:17 EDTGSFINRA fines Barclays Capital, Citigroup Global Markets, others $43.5M total
FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) – $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) – $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) – $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) – $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) – $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) – $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) – $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) – $4M; Needham & Company LLC – $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms — Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham — had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
