10:33 EDTJPMWebster Financial to acquire HSA business from JPMorgan
Webster Financial (WBS), the holding company for Webster Bank, N.A., said that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire the health savings account, or HSA, business from JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Under the agreement, approximately 700,000 accounts, including an estimated $1.3B in deposits and $175M in investments, will migrate from JPMorgan Chase Bank to HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank, over a transitional period. In the near term, Webster will use approximately 60% of the deposits to pay down short-term borrowings with the remaining funds invested in securities. Transaction consideration will be all cash; the purchase price was not disclosed. Webster expects the transaction to be modestly accretive to earnings per share and return on equity in the first year following closing. The transaction is expected to improve Webster's loan-to-deposit ratio to approximately 80% from 87% pro forma at June 30. The company estimates the transaction will have tangible book value dilution of approximately 3%. JPMorgan Chase has advised Webster that the transaction is not expected to have a material impact on JPMorgan Chase's earnings.

05:31 EDTJPMVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visa’s holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visa’s investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.
