12:15 EDTUSB, VU.S. Bancorp reaches settlement with U.S. Department of Justice
U.S. Bancorp (USB) announced that it has reached a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice in order to resolve an investigation relating to the endorsement of mortgage loans under the Federal Housing Administrationís insurance program. The company cooperated fully with the DOJ investigation and chose to settle this matter for $200M without an admission of liability to avoid the path of costly and protracted litigation as well as distractions to the business. U.S. Bancorp has a legacy of being a respected mortgage lender, including a decades-long, strong working relationship with HUD and its FHA loan programs. In addition, during Q2 and prior to the settlement agreement with the DOJ, the company sold 3M shares of the Class B common stock of Visa (V) resulting in a net pretax gain of $214M. After the sale, the company continues to own approximately 9.6M Visa Class B shares. The combination of the settlement and the sale of Visa Class B shares is expected to be neutral to earnings-per-share in Q2.
