As you indicated earlier, and you guys have been pretty consistent, the Black Knight spin is on track for 3Q. Any color you can provide on when we should expect that? More to the front of the quarter or the backend?
Answer: Anthony J. Park, Chief Financial Officer, FNF
I think you saw our news release last week that we did get the private letter ruling, so thats all in order. At this point, its really just an SEC process. We need to file with the SEC. That will happen imminently. You go through a round of comments, they typically take 30 days to review initially. Theyll have comments, well respond as quickly as we can. There is likely going to be a second round of fewer comments. Well address those. And then we have a waiting period from the effective date to the time we can hold a shareholder vote. So my guess right now is probably mid-August would be kind of the likely or best case scenario.
And then the timing for also the spinoff of FNFV and the unwinding of tracking stock structure, is it relatively simultaneous with that?
Answer: Anthony J. Park, Chief Financial Officer, FNF
I think it is, I think its going to be pretty close coincidentally. We did get the private letter ruling, a positive or favorable ruling on that as well, so that part is done. And again, well work through the SEC process and have the vote. That will thats another, we havent really spent any time talking about it, but that is a benefit to FNF as well. Well no longer be a tracking stock, so it makes us index eligible that we arent currently as a tracking stock because both FNF Group and FNFV are currently tracking stocks. So that will be a net positive for us and really open up more opportunity for index funds, index volume within FNFs stock. But I would expect the timing of that to be pretty close to what we see on the Black Knight side.
