BofI Holding, Inc. Assesses the Financial Impact from Tax Legislation

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

BofI Holding, Inc. (BOFI) (the “Company”), parent of BofI Federal Bank, has assessed the financial impact expected to result from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law December 22, 2017. Based on currently available information, the Company expects to incur a one-time charge of approximately $8-$9 million, or $0.12-$0.14 per diluted share, against its deferred tax asset in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 ended December 31, 2017. The deferred tax asset revaluation relates primarily to the reduced value of deferred tax assets resulting from loan loss reserves.

The Company will receive the benefit of the reduced federal tax rate as of January 1, 2018, through a reduction in the average tax rate applied to the income earned in fiscal year 2018. The reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, starting January 1, 2018, will be partially offset by changes in deductions of certain state and local taxes. Based on currently available information, the Company estimates its GAAP combined federal and state effective tax rate for the remainder of fiscal year 2018 and for fiscal year 2019 to be as follows:

         
9/30/2017 12/31/2017 3/31/2018 6/30/2018 6/30/2019
June 30 Fiscal Year End   Q1 2018*   Q2 2018   Q3 2018   Q4 2018   FY 2019
GAAP effective tax rate excluding DTA adjustment in Q2 2018   42%   29%-31%   35%-37%   35%-37%   28%-30%
 

*Q1 2018 reported tax rate
