The sale will remove student loan assets amounting to $3.8 billion and related liabilities of $3.7 billion from Sallie Mae’s balance sheet, and the proceeds from the transaction will add 8 cents to its 2013 GAAP and core earnings per share. Shares closed up 0.06 percent on the day at $18.38 and have traded in a 52-week range of $12.85 to $18.69.
