H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB) is a global financial services provider. Tax return preparation services are provided by a professional network of ~80,000 tax preparers in approximately 11,000 company-owned and franchise retail tax offices worldwide (U.S., Canada and Australia), and through H&R Block tax software and the emerging platform of virtual tax preparation services.

H&R Block also offers small dollar lending products (Emerald Advance, Refund Advance) and markets Emerald Card, one of the largest reloadable debit cards in America. In addition, value-added services such as Tax Identity Shield and Peace of Mind are offered to its clients.

In fiscal 2021, H&R Block had annual revenues of over $3.4 billion and EBITDA margins of 27.3%, with over 25 million tax returns prepared worldwide and with earnings per share of $3.39, current quarterly dividend of $0.27.

Coincident with the appointment of Jeff Jones as President and CEO, in October 2017, the Company embarked on an ambitious growth-oriented transformation. This transformation is focused on increasing the value of H&R Block to their clients by improving the quality of the customer experience through enhanced service delivery, enabled by modernizing their technology. The plan also includes significant innovation of their digital product offerings, leveraging and monetizing data more extensively, and seeking opportunities to expand their addressable market.

In FY21 H&R Block continued to execute on its Strategic Roadmap, focusing on significant improvements in how to serve its clients. H&R Block delivered results, grew overall return volume faster than the industry, and delivered industry-leading assisted volume, and DIY revenue growth.

As part of investing for the long term, H&R Block acquired Wave Financial (waveapps.com) in 2019.

This acquisition is accelerating the Company's strategic focus on the large and growing self-employed and small business market.
