Financial Sector Update for 06/09/2015: OMAM,HRB,DB
Top Financial Stocks
Financial stocks were holding moderate gains, with the NYSE Financial Sector Index rising 0.2% and the S&P Financial 100 Index adding 0.6%.
In company news, OM Asset Management plc ( OMAM ) fell Tuesday after the financial services company last night disclosed plans for a secondary stock offering worth as much as $200 million by a British subsidiary of its parent company.
The selling shareholder, OM Group Ltd, has not yet settled on the number of shares it plans to sell although a preliminary prospectus filed last night with the Securities and Exchange Commission indicated a $200 million maximum for the deal. At Monday's closing price of $18.99 a share, that would work out to around 10.5 million shares, diluting existing shareholder stakes by around 8%, based on its 120.5 million shares now outstanding.
The company will not receive any proceeds from the upcoming offering.
OMAM shares were down nearly 5% at $18.11 apiece, earlier sinking to a session low of $17.87 a share. The stock has traded between $13.25 to $20.05 a share since its October 2014 initial public offering, rising more than 36% over the past 12 months before Tuesday's decline.
