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.

10:56 EDTSHLDSears operations erasing $10/share in value each year, says Credit Suisse
In a note titled "Thinking About 'The End,'" Credit Suisse earlier today said events over the past month "had to shake supplier confidence" in Sears. The firm noted that Sears is generating negative operating cash flow of between $1B-$2B in 2014. Credit Suisse concludes that if Sears' real estate assets are worth as much as bulls think they are, then the company should liquidate since its operations are taking over $10 per share of value away every year. It has Underperform rating on Sears with a $20 price target. Shares of the retailer are down 2%, or 66c, to $28.90 in morning trading.

06:39 EDTCSEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).

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.
