Form 8-K for REPUBLIC BANCORP INC /KY/

Regulation FD Disclosure


ITEM 7.01. REGULATION FD DISCLOSURE

As previously disclosed in a Form 8-K filed by Republic Bancorp, Inc. ("Republic" or the "Company") with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 11, 2013, Republic Bank & Trust Company ("RB&T"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Republic, entered into a Purchase and Assumption Agreement dated July 11, 2013, with H&R Block Bank and its sole shareholder Block Financial LLC (the "Agreement"). Pursuant to the Agreement, RB&T will acquire certain assets and assume certain liabilities, including all of the deposits of H&R Block Bank (the "P&A Transaction").

The Agreement provides that all regulatory approvals must be received by September 30, 2013 in order for the P&A Transaction to occur in 2013. If any regulatory approvals are obtained after September 30, 2013, but on or before March 31, 2014, the Agreement provides that the P&A Transaction will occur between April 30, 2014 and June 18, 2014.

On July 15, 2013, RB&T submitted an application for approval of the P&A Transaction to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC") for consideration in conjunction with RB&T's pending application from May 2013 for approval of an internal merger of RB&T and its affiliate, Republic Bank, which would include RB&T's conversion to a national bank. Based on discussions with the OCC, RB&T does not believe that it will receive a decision from the OCC regarding its applications before September 30, 2013. There can be no assurance that all regulatory approvals, which are required in order to complete the P&A Transaction, will be received by March 31, 2014, or at all.

Pursuant to the Agreement, RB&T's ability to offer any H&R Block-branded financial services products to H&R Block's clients is contingent upon the successful completion of the P&A Transaction.

The completion of the P&A Transaction is also subject to the completion of a Joint Marketing Master Services Agreement ("MSA") and a related Receivables Participation Agreement ("RPA"). RB&T and H&R Block, Inc. and its affiliates continue to make progress in separate contract negotiations to enter into the MSA and the RPA. Pursuant to the MSA, if the P&A Transaction is consummated, RB&T would offer H&R Block-branded financial services products to H&R Block's clients. There can be no assurance that the parties will successfully negotiate and execute the MSA and the RPA, nor can there be any assurance with respect to the final terms and conditions of these agreements.

The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a copy of which has been attached as exhibit 2.1 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K dated July 11, 2013.
