First Republic slips in expanded trade

Shares of First Republic fell 18% in extended trading, erasing the afternoon rally sparked by a $30 billion deposit plan announced by the nation’s largest banks.

While the move gives First Republic a significant cash pile, the bank announced after the bell that it had borrowed tens of billions of dollars from the Federal Reserve and the Federal Home Loan Bank over the past week. The outflow of deposits has now “slowed significantly,” the bank said.

First Republic also announced that it was suspending its common stock dividend.
