The BoA warehouse line has been extended to March 14, 2008, but is subject to several "performance triggers" tied to capital, net income, defaults, and related matters. H&R Block is trying to sell Option One and is supposed to make a public announcement regarding the sale process by the end of the week of March 25. According to the Quarterly Data Report, Option One ranks seventh among all subprime originators in the United States.
