Among financial stocks moving on news:

+ First Internet Bancorp ( INBK ) was swinging between small gains and losses this afternoon following the bank holding company saying underwriters exercised an option to buy nearly 225,750 additional shares, increasing gross proceeds from the deal by $7.5 million. Together with the sale of 1.51 million shares priced at $33.25 apiece, the company issued a total of 1.73 million shares generating around 54.3 million in net proceeds after subtracting underwriter discounts and other offering expenses.

In other sector news:

+ KKR ( KKR ) was edging higher on Monday, earlier climbing almost 2%, after the private-equity firm announced its $9.9 billion buyout of Envision Healthcare ( EVHC ). Under terms of the proposed transaction, Envision investors will receive $46 in cash for each of their shares, a 32% premium to the company's stock price on Nov. 1, 2017, the day before the 45-state chain of physicians' clinics began reviewing its strategic options. KKR also will take on about $4.4 billion in Envision debt. The deal is expected to close before the end of the year.

- Hercules Capital ( HTGC ) was little changed Monday afternoon, drifting south from a fractional mid-morning gain, after the specialty lender said it has nearly $725 million in closed and pending commitments since the start of the year and was on pace for over $1 billion in new commitments this year. Hercules also has originated $313.8 million of new debt and equity commitments through last Friday for 17 new or existing portfolio companies.
