                                     VOTING

Only holders of record of Common Stock at the close of business on February 24,
2006, will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting or any adjournment thereof.
On February 24, 2006, there were 63,299,265 shares of Common Stock issued and
outstanding, and we had no other class of equity securities outstanding. Each
share of Common Stock is entitled to one vote at the Annual Meeting on all
matters properly presented.

The presence at the Annual Meeting of a majority of the votes entitled to be
cast, represented in person or by proxy, will constitute a quorum for the
transaction of business at the Annual Meeting. Assuming the presence of a
quorum, the eight persons receiving the greatest number of votes of the Common
Stock cast at the Annual Meeting by the holders of stock entitled to vote shall
be elected as Directors of Ocwen. With regard to the election of Directors,
shareholders may vote in favor of or withhold authority to vote for one or more
nominees for Director. Votes that are withheld and broker non-votes in
connection with the election of one or more nominees for Director will not be
counted as votes cast for such individuals and accordingly will have no effect.
Abstentions may be specified on all other proposals.

Assuming the presence of a quorum, the proposal to ratify the appointment of
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as Ocwen's independent registered certified public
accounting firm for 2006, to adopt and approve amendments to our Amended and
Restated Articles of Incorporation, which provide for a one-for-ten (1-for-10)
reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding shares of our common stock and
a ten-for-1 (10-for-1) forward stock split of the issued and outstanding shares
of our common stock immediately after the reverse stock split, and any other
matter properly submitted to shareholders for their consideration at the Annual
Meeting (other than the election of Directors) shall be approved if the votes
cast by the holders of the shares represented at the Annual Meeting and entitled
to vote on the subject matter favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing
the action. Abstentions and broker non-votes will not be counted in determining
the votes cast in connection with the proposal to ratify the appointment of
Ocwen's independent registered certified public accounting firm or the proposal
to adopt and approve Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and thus
will have no effect on such proposals.

                              ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
                                 (Proposal One)

Ocwen's Bylaws provide that the Board of Directors of Ocwen shall be comprised
of between three and eight members, with the exact number to be fixed by the
Board of Directors. Pursuant to the Bylaws of Ocwen, on July 26, 2005, the Board
of Directors fixed the number of directors at eight. Directors are elected
annually and hold office until the earlier of the election and qualification of
their successors or their resignation and removal.

Accordingly, Ocwen will propose eight directors for election at the Annual
Meeting. All eight of the persons standing for election at the Annual Meeting
are currently Directors of Ocwen. There are no arrangements or understandings
between any nominee for director and any other person pursuant to which such
person was selected as a nominee. No Director is related to any other Director
or Executive Officer of Ocwen by blood, marriage or adoption.

If any person named as nominee should be unable or unwilling to stand for
election at the time of the Annual Meeting, the person or persons appointed as
proxies will nominate and vote for a replacement nominee or nominees recommended
by the Board of Directors. At this time, the Board of Directors knows of no
reason why any of the nominees listed below would not be able to serve as
director if elected.

Nominees for Director

The following table sets forth certain information concerning the Directors of
Ocwen:

                   BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Meetings of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Ocwen held five meetings during 2005. No Director of
Ocwen attended fewer than 75% of the aggregate of the number of meetings of the
Board of Directors held during 2005 and the number of meetings held by all
committees thereof on which he or she served during the period. Although Ocwen
does not have a formal policy regarding Director attendance at the Annual
Meeting, Directors are encouraged to attend. Seven members of the Board of
Directors attended the 2005 Annual Meeting, as Martha C. Goss had not yet been
appointed to serve on the Board of Directors.

Independence of Directors

Ocwen's Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that the Board of Directors must
be comprised of a majority of Directors who qualify as independent Directors
under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and applicable law.

The Board reviews annually the relationships that each Director has with the
Company (either directly or as a partner, shareholder or officer of an
organization that has a relationship with the Company). Following such review,
only those Directors who the Board affirmatively determines, through categorical
questionnaire responses that follow the independence standards as set forth by
the New York Stock Exchange, have no material relationship with the Company are
considered independent Directors, subject to additional qualifications
prescribed under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange or
applicable law. Our current Board of Directors has determined that Ms. Goss and
Messrs. Korn, Lacy, Martin and Wish are independent in accordance with
applicable laws and the New York Stock Exchange listing standards.

Committees of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Ocwen has established an Executive Committee, an Audit
Committee, a Compensation Committee, and a Nomination/Governance Committee. A
brief description of these Committees is set forth below.

Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is generally responsible to act on
behalf of the Board of Directors during the intervals between meetings of the
Board of Directors. This Committee did not meet during 2005.

Audit Committee. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors oversees the
relationship with Ocwen's independent registered certified public accounting
firm, reviews and advises the Board of Directors with respect to reports by
Ocwen's independent registered certified public accounting firm and monitors
Ocwen's compliance with laws and regulations applicable to Ocwen's operations
including the evaluation of significant matters relating to the financial
reporting process and system of internal accounting controls of Ocwen and the
review of the scope and results of the annual audit conducted by the independent
registered certified public accounting firm. Each member of the Audit Committee
is independent as defined in regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange
Commission and the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. The Board
of Directors has determined that all members of the Audit Committee are
financially literate. Further, the Board of Directors has determined that Ronald
J. Korn possesses accounting or related financial management expertise within
the meaning of the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and
qualifies as an audit committee financial expert, as that term is defined in
Securities and Exchange Commission rules implementing requirements of the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The Audit Committee operates under a written
charter, a copy of which is available on Ocwen's website at www.ocwen.com. This
Committee met 15 times during 2005.

Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors
oversees Ocwen's compensation and employee benefit plans and practices. The
Compensation Committee also evaluates and makes recommendations to the Board of
Directors for human resource and compensation matters relating to the Executive
Officers of Ocwen. Each member of the Compensation Committee is independent as
defined in the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. The
Compensation Committee operates under a written charter approved by the whole
Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on Ocwen's web site at
www.ocwen.com. This Committee met three times during 2005.

Nomination/Governance Committee. The Nomination/Governance Committee of the
Board of Directors recommends to the Board individuals qualified to serve as
Directors of Ocwen and on committees of the Board; advises the Board with
respect to Board composition, procedures and committees; develops and presents
to the Board a set of corporate governance principles; and oversees the
evaluation of the Board and Ocwen's management. Each member of the
Nomination/Governance Committee is independent as defined in the listing
standards of the New York Stock Exchange. The Nomination/Governance Committee
operates under a written charter, a copy of which is available on Ocwen's web
site at www.ocwen.com. This Committee met two times during 2005.

It is the policy of the Nomination/Governance Committee to consider candidates
for Director recommended by shareholders. In evaluating nominees for Director,
the Nomination/Governance Committee takes into account the applicable
requirements for Directors under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended, and the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. In addition,
the Nomination/Governance Committee takes into account the needs of the Company,
as well as such factors as knowledge, experience, skills, expertise and
diversity. Should a shareholder recommend a candidate for Director, the
Nomination/Governance Committee would evaluate such candidate in the same way as
it evaluates any other nominee.

Shareholders wishing to recommend persons for consideration by the
Nomination/Governance Committee as nominees for election to the Board of
Directors can do so by writing to the Secretary of Ocwen Financial Corporation,
1661 Worthington Road, Suite 100, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409, giving each
proposed nominee's name, biographical data and qualifications. The
recommendation should also include a written statement from the proposed nominee
consenting to be named as a nominee and, if nominated and elected, to serve as a
Director. For consideration, Ocwen must receive such recommendations by November
1, 2006.

Corporate Governance Guidelines

The Corporate Governance Guidelines adopted by the Board of Directors provide
guidelines for Ocwen and the Board of Directors to ensure effective corporate
governance. The Corporate Governance Guidelines cover topics including, but not
limited to, Director qualification standards, Board and committee composition,
Director responsibilities, Director access to management and independent
advisors, Director compensation, Director orientation and continuing education,
management succession and annual performance evaluation of the Board.

The Nomination/Governance Committee will review Ocwen's Governance Guidelines at
least once a year and, if necessary, recommend changes to the Board. The
Governance Guidelines are available on our web site at www.ocwen.com and are
available to any shareholder who requests them by writing to the Secretary of
Ocwen at 1661 Worthington Road, Suite 100, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409.

Executive Sessions of Non-Management Directors

Non-management Directors meet in executive session without management on a
regularly scheduled basis at least four times each year. A non-management
Director presides on a rotational basis as determined by the Board at each
executive session.

Communications with Directors

Any shareholder or other interested party who desires to contact the Board of
Directors or any individual Director regarding Ocwen may do so by mail addressed
to the Secretary of Ocwen at 1661 Worthington Road, Suite 100, West Palm Beach,
Florida 33409. Communications received in writing are distributed to the Board
or to individual Directors as appropriate depending on the facts and
circumstances outlined in the communication received.

                                       11

Code of Ethics

Ocwen has adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to Directors, Officers and
employees of the Company, as required by the New York Stock Exchange rules. Any
waivers from the Code of Ethics must be approved by the Board of Directors or a
Board committee and must be promptly disclosed to shareholders. This Code of
Ethics is available on www.ocwen.com and is available to any shareholder who
requests a copy of the Code of Ethics by writing to the Secretary of Ocwen at
1661 Worthington Road, Suite 100, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409.

                         BOARD OF DIRECTORS COMPENSATION

The non-management Directors of Ocwen are currently compensated by delivering to
each a total annual value of $55,000, which is payable $20,000 in shares of
Common Stock pursuant to a Directors' Stock Plan adopted by the Board of
Directors and shareholders of Ocwen in July 1996 and $35,000 cash (which may be
prorated for a Director serving less than a full one-year term, as in the case
of a Director joining the Board of Directors after an Annual Meeting of
Shareholders), subject to review and adjustment by the Board of Directors from
time to time. Effective July 1, 2005, management Directors of Ocwen no longer
receive an annual retainer for their service on the Board of Directors.
Directors serving as committee chairpersons, with the exception of the Audit
Committee chairperson, receive an additional $5,000 in cash compensation, while
the Audit Committee chairperson receives an additional $10,000 in cash
compensation. Audit Committee members receive an additional $2,500 in cash
compensation. Cash payments are made to the Directors on a quarterly basis and
equity compensation is paid after the annual organizational meeting of the Board
of Directors, which follows the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Ocwen. In
March of 2005, the Board of Directors adopted a Deferred Compensation Plan for
Directors, pursuant to which Directors will be permitted to defer the receipt of
compensation granted under the Directors' Stock Plan. During 2005, 2,683 shares
of Common Stock were granted to each of two non-management Directors of Ocwen.
The remaining three non-management Directors of Ocwen elected to defer their
equity compensation.

The number of shares issued pursuant to the Directors' Stock Plan is based on
the "fair market value" of the Common Stock on the date of grant. The term "fair
market value" is defined in the Directors' Stock Plan to mean the average of the
high and low prices of the Common Stock as reported on the New York Stock
Exchange on the relevant date. Shares issued pursuant to the Directors' Stock
Plan are subject to forfeiture during the 12 full calendar months following
election or appointment to the Board of Directors or a committee thereof, if the
Director does not attend an aggregate of at least 75% of all meetings of the
Board of Directors and Committees thereof of which the Director is a member
during such period.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation

Determinations regarding compensation of Ocwen's employees are made by the
Compensation Committee. No member of the Committee is or at any time was an
officer or employee of Ocwen or any subsidiary, nor did any member of the
Committee have an interest in a transaction which would require disclosure
hereunder.

Report of the Compensation Committee

The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors is responsible for
establishing management compensation policies and procedures to be reflected in
the compensation program offered to the Executive Officers of Ocwen. The
Committee shares jurisdiction with the full Board of Directors over the
administration of and grants under the 1991 Non-Qualified Stock Option Plan.

General Compensation Policies. The broad general salary and benefit guidelines
are determined by the Committee. Ocwen seeks to provide executives with
long-term wealth accumulation capability, conditional upon personal performance,
individual service longevity and consistent high-level financial performance of
Ocwen. With respect to Ocwen's Officers other than Mr. William C. Erbey, the
Committee considered salary and bonus recommendations prepared by Mr. William C.
Erbey or other Executive Officers to determine fiscal 2005 compensation. The
salary adjustment recommendations were based on Ocwen's overall performance in
the past year and an analysis of compensation levels necessary to maintain and
attract quality personnel. It is through this process that Ocwen is able to
compete for and retain talented executives who are critical to Ocwen's long-term
success and align the interests of those executives with the long-term interests
of Ocwen's shareholders.

Annual Incentive Compensation. Ocwen's primary incentive compensation plan for
executives is the 1998 Annual Incentive Plan, as amended. Pursuant to the
current plan, a participant can earn cash, restricted stock and stock option
awards as determined by the Compensation Committee. The awards are based on
objective performance criteria established by the Committee pursuant to the
Plan, which includes corporate profitability, growth in our core businesses,
reduction in non-core assets, cost savings through Six Sigma initiatives and
meeting budget objectives. Each participant has a targeted annual incentive
award that is expressed as a percentage of total target compensation and varies
with the participant's level of responsibility. At the executive level, 20-65%
of each executive's total target compensation is payable only upon achievement
of certain minimum Company and individual performance levels. The incentive
awards are structured so that the compensation opportunities for executives are
related to the level of business unit performance actually achieved.

Other Compensation. The Compensation Committee's policy with respect to other
employee benefit plans is to provide competitive benefits to employees of Ocwen,
including Executive Officers. A competitive comprehensive benefit program is
essential to achieving the goal of attracting and retaining highly qualified
employees.

Tax Considerations. Under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,
as amended (the "Code"), the tax deduction by corporate taxpayers is limited
with respect to the compensation of certain Executive Officers to $1 million per
covered executive unless such compensation is based upon the attainment of
performance objectives meeting certain regulatory criteria or is otherwise
excluded from the limitation. Ocwen obtained shareholder approval of the 1998
Annual Incentive Plan and all amendments thereto in order to qualify awards
under such plans as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the
Code. It is the Compensation Committee's intention to qualify all
performance-based compensation for the exclusion from the deductibility
limitation of 162(m), except in situations where qualifying compensation for the
exclusion would be inconsistent with the overall best interest of Ocwen.

Chief Executive Officer Compensation. In determining the overall compensation
package for the Chief Executive Officer, the Committee considered the
performance of the Chief Executive Officer and the financial performance
achieved by Ocwen during the past fiscal year. For the CEO, incentive
compensation for 2005 was based largely on performance against specific goals,
including corporate profitability, improved asset utilization, growth in our
core businesses, reduction in non-core assets and cost savings, including those
attributable to increased utilization of our India operations centers and to our
Six Sigma initiatives.

    AMENDMENTS TO OUR ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION, AS AMENDED, TO EFFECT A ONE-
   FOR-TEN (1-for-10) REVERSE STOCK SPLIT OF OUR ISSUED AND OUTSTANDING COMMON
  STOCK, FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY BY A TEN- FOR-ONE (10-for-1) FORWARD STOCK SPLIT
                                 (Proposal Two)

Our Board of Directors has authorized, and recommends that you approve,
Amendments to our Articles of Incorporation to effect a one-for-ten (1-for-10)
reverse stock split of our Common Stock, followed immediately by a ten-for-one
(10-for-1) forward stock split. The proposed reverse stock split and subsequent
forward stock split will not take effect unless they are approved by the
shareholders and until Certificates of Amendment to the Articles of
Incorporation are filed with the Department of State of Florida to effectuate
each of the reverse stock split and the forward stock split.

Under the reverse split, ten shares of Common Stock registered in the name of a
shareholder at the effective time of the reverse split will be converted into
one share of Common Stock, followed immediately by a forward stock split under
which each share of Common Stock outstanding upon completion of the reverse
split will be converted into ten shares of Common Stock. Shares of Common Stock
that would be converted into less than one share in the reverse split will
instead be converted into the right to receive a cash payment equal to the fair
market value of such fractional interest, as described below. We will make these
cash payments from our general corporate funds. Any shares we redeem will revert
to authorized but unissued shares. We refer to the reverse and forward stock
splits, together with the cash payments to shareholders with less than one share
after the reverse split, as the "Transaction."

If a registered shareholder holds ten or more shares of Common Stock in his or
her account at the effective time of the reverse split, he or she will not
receive cash for any fractional share in his or her account resulting from the
reverse split, and the total number of shares held by such holder will not
change as a result of the Transaction. Our Board of Directors reserves the right
to abandon the Transaction even if approved by the shareholders.

In deciding whether to proceed with the Transaction, the Board of Directors will
consider factors such as:

     o    the prevailing trading price and trading volume for our Common Stock
          at the time the decision is made;
     o    the anticipated impact of the Transaction on the trading market for
          our Common Stock;
     o    the availability of funds required to make the cash payments to
          shareholders with small holdings whose shares are to be converted into
          the right to receive cash in the Transaction; and
     o    prevailing general market and economic conditions.

In order to complete the Transaction, a majority of the shareholders entitled to
vote at the Annual Meeting must approve amendments to our Articles of
Incorporation. If approved and implemented, the Transaction will become
effective eight days after our Annual Meeting upon the filing of the necessary
amendments to our Articles of Incorporation with the Department of State of the
State of Florida. We refer to this as the "effective date." The forms of the
proposed amendments to our Articles of Incorporation necessary to effect the
Transaction are attached to this proxy statement as Appendices I and II.

                                       20

<PAGE>

If approved and implemented, the Transaction will affect Ocwen shareholders as
follows (for a more detailed description of the effect of the Transaction on our
shareholders, see "Effect on Shareholders" below):

Registered shareholder holding less          Shares will be converted into the
than ten                                     right to receive cash (see
shares of Common Stock                       "Determination of Cash-Out Price"
                                             below)

Shareholders holding Common Stock in         Ocwen intends for the Transaction
street name through a nominee (such          to treat shareholders holding
as a bank or broker)                         Common Stock in street name
                                             through a nominee (such as a bank
                                             or broker) in the same manner as
                                             shareholders whose shares are
                                             registered.  Nominees will be
                                             instructed to effect the
                                             Transaction for their beneficial
                                             holders.  However, nominees may
                                             have different procedures, and
                                             shareholders holding their shares
                                             in street name should contact
                                             their nominees.

The Board of Directors recommends that the shareholders approve the Transaction
for the following reasons, among others (as described in detail under
"Background and Purpose of the Transaction" below): (i) to reduce the number of
shareholders with small accounts, which will reduce administrative expenses to
the Company and (ii) to provide an efficient and cost-effective way for
shareholders holding small amounts of our Common Stock to sell their shares.

Background and Purpose of the Transaction

We have approximately 3,300 shareholders, including approximately 1,300 holders
of record and 2,000 beneficial owners holding shares in street name. As of
February 24, 2006, approximately 1,131 registered holders of our Common Stock
owned fewer than ten shares, representing approximately 89% of the total number
of registered holders of our Common Stock, but less than 0.01% of the total
number of our outstanding shares of Common Stock. In addition, as of February
24, 2006, approximately 40 shareholders holding Common Stock in street name
through a nominee, such as a bank or broker-dealer, owned fewer than ten shares
of our Common Stock, representing less than 2% of the total number of street
name shareholders, but only 0.001% of the total number of outstanding shares of
our Common Stock held by street name shareholders. This large number of
shareholders is due in large part to grants of two shares of Common Stock made
to employees prior to our initial public offering.

The Transaction will provide shareholders holding fewer than ten shares with a
cost-effective way to cash out their investments, because Ocwen will pay all
transaction costs such as brokerage or service fees in connection with the
Transaction. In most other cases, small shareholders would likely incur
brokerage fees disproportionately high relative to the market value of their
shares, if they wanted to sell their stock. In addition, some small shareholders
might even have difficulty finding a broker willing to handle such small
transactions. The Transaction, however, eliminates these problems for most small
shareholders.

The cost of administering each shareholder's account, whether registered or in
street name, is the same regardless of the number of shares held in the account.
Therefore, Ocwen's costs to maintain these small accounts are disproportionately
high when compared to the number of shares involved. We estimate that if we
complete the Transaction we will reduce the total cost of administering
shareholder accounts by at least 20% of our total shareholder administration
costs, or approximately $5,000 per year. Although the amount is difficult to
quantify, we anticipate that the Transaction will result in additional savings
by allowing us to allocate the time of various administrative personnel
currently devoted to administering shareholder accounts to operational matters,
and may eliminate the need for us to hire additional administrative staff.

                                       21

<PAGE>

In light of these disproportionate costs, the Board of Directors believes that
it is in the best interests of Ocwen and its shareholders as a whole to
eliminate the administrative burden and costs associated with the small record
accounts with fewer than ten shares of our Common Stock.

Structure of the Transaction

The Transaction includes both a reverse stock split and a forward stock split of
our Common Stock. If the Transaction is approved by shareholders and implemented
by our Board, the reverse split is expected to occur at 4:59 p.m. eastern time
on the effective date and the forward split is expected to occur at 5:00 p.m.
eastern time on the effective date. Upon completing the reverse split, each
registered shareholder on the effective date will receive one share of Common
Stock for each ten shares of Common Stock held in the holder's account. If the
holder owns ten or more shares on the effective date of the reverse split, any
fractional shares resulting from the reverse split in the account will not be
cashed out, and the total number of shares held by such shareholder will not
change as a result of the Transaction. Any shareholder holding fewer than ten
shares of Common Stock at the time of the reverse split will receive a cash
payment instead of fractional shares. This cash payment will be determined and
paid as described below under "Determination of Cash-Out Price." Immediately
following the reverse split, all shareholders who have not received cash for
their shares will receive ten shares of Common Stock for every one share of
Common Stock they held following the reverse split.

The following examples illustrate the Transaction for hypothetical shareholders,
assuming the cash-out price is $10.00 per share.

two shares                cash-out price of $10.00 per share, Mr. Smith will
                          receive $20.00 in cash.  If Mr. Smith wants to
                          continue his investment in Ocwen, he can, prior to
                          the effective date, buy 8 additional shares of our
                          Common Stock.  Mr. Smith would have to act far enough
                          in advance of the Transaction so that the purchase is
                          completed and the additional share is credited in his
                          account prior to 4:59 p.m. eastern time, on the
                          effective date.

                          does consolidate these accounts, there is no
                          assurance that the accounts will be consolidated by
                          the effective date or, even if they are consolidated,
                          that the financial institution holding the
                          consolidated account will provide timely notice to
                          the transfer agent.  If the transfer agent does not

Effect on Shareholders

Shareholders with a Record Account of Fewer than Ten Shares. If we complete the
Transaction and you are a shareholder holding fewer than ten shares of our
Common Stock in a record account immediately prior to the reverse stock split
(i.e. a "cashed-out shareholder"):

     o    You will not receive a fractional share of Ocwen Common Stock as a
          result of the reverse split.

     o    Instead of receiving a fractional share of Ocwen Common Stock, you
          will receive cash equal to the trading value of the shares you held in
          your record account immediately prior to the reverse split. See
          "Determination of Cash-Out Price" below.

     o    After the Transaction, you will have no further interest in Ocwen with
          respect to your cashed-out shares. These shares will no longer entitle
          you to the right to vote as a shareholder or share in Ocwen's assets,
          earnings or profits. In other words, you will no longer hold your
          cashed-out shares, you will just have the right to receive cash for
          these shares.

     o    You will not have to pay any service charges or brokerage commissions
          in connection with the Transaction.

     o    As soon as practicable after the Transaction, you will receive cash
          for the Ocwen Common Stock you held in your record account immediately
          prior to the reverse split in accordance with the procedures described
          below.

     o    If you hold book-entry shares:

          o    Most of Ocwen's registered shareholders hold their shares of
               Ocwen Common Stock in book-entry form under the Direct
               Registration System for securities. These shareholders do not
               have stock certificates evidencing their ownership of Ocwen's
               stock. They are, however, provided with a statement reflecting
               the number of shares registered in their accounts.

          o    If you are a cashed-out shareholder who holds registered shares
               in a book-entry account, you do not need to take any action to
               receive your cash payment. We will mail a check to you at your
               registered address as soon as practicable after the Transaction.
               By signing and cashing this check, you will warrant that you own
               the shares for which you received a cash payment.

     o    If you hold certificated shares:

          o    If you are a cashed-out shareholder with a stock certificate
               representing your cashed-out shares, you will receive a
               transmittal letter from Ocwen as soon as practicable after the
               Transaction. The letter of transmittal will contain instructions
               on how to surrender your certificate(s) to Ocwen's transfer
               agent, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, for your cash
               payment. You will not receive your cash payment until you
               surrender your outstanding certificate(s) to American Stock
               Transfer and Trust Company, together with a completed and
               executed copy of the letter of transmittal. Please do not send
               your certificates until you receive your letter of transmittal.
               For further information, see "Stock Certificates" below.

     o    All amounts owed to you will be subject to applicable federal income
          tax and state abandoned property laws.

     o    You will not receive any interest on cash payments owed to you as a
          result of the Transaction.

NOTE: If you want to continue to hold Ocwen Common Stock after the Transaction,
you may do so by taking either of the following actions far enough in advance so
that it is completed by the effective date of the Transaction:

                                       23

<PAGE>

     o    Purchase a sufficient number of shares of Ocwen Common Stock on the
          open market and have them registered in your name so that you hold at
          least ten shares in your record account immediately prior to the
          reverse split; or
     o    If applicable, consolidate your record accounts so that you hold at
          least ten shares of Ocwen Common Stock in one record account
          immediately prior to the reverse split.

Registered Stockholders With Ten or More Shares. If you are a registered
shareholder with ten or more shares of Common Stock in your record account as of
4:59 p.m. on effective date of the Transaction, we will first convert your
shares into one tenth (1/10) of the number of shares you held immediately prior
to the reverse split. One minute after the reverse split, at 5:00 p.m., we will
reconvert your shares in the forward stock split into ten times the number of
shares you held after the reverse split, which is the same number of shares you
held before the reverse split. For example, if you were a registered owner of
150 shares of Ocwen Common Stock immediately prior to the reverse split, your
shares would be converted to 15 shares in the reverse split and back to 150
shares in the forward split. As a result, the Transaction will not affect the
number of shares that you hold in record name if you hold ten or more shares of
Ocwen Common Stock in your record account immediately prior to the reverse
split.

Beneficial Owners of Ocwen Common Stock. Ocwen intends to treat shareholders
holding shares of Ocwen Common Stock in street name through a nominee (such as a
bank or broker) in the same manner as shareholders whose shares are registered
in their names. We will instruct all nominees to effect the Transaction for
their beneficial holders. However, these nominees may have different procedures,
and shareholders holding Ocwen Common Stock in street name should contact their
nominees.

Current and Former Employees and Directors. If you are a current or former
employee or director of Ocwen, you may own Ocwen restricted stock and/or hold
options to purchase Ocwen stock through our stock plans. With respect to
restricted shares of our Common Stock, you will be treated in the same manner as
other shareholders. If you hold options to purchase less than ten shares, you
will not receive a cash payment for these options. The Transaction will not
affect the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of these options.

Determination of Cash-Out Price

Under Florida state law, Ocwen is required to pay you "fair value" for any
fractional shares that we redeem. If shareholders approve the proposal at the
Annual Meeting and the Transaction is completed, our Board of Directors has
decided to pay cash for the fractional shares in U.S. dollars equal to the
average official closing price of the Common Stock on The New York Stock
Exchange over the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding the effective
date. The average official closing price over these ten trading days will be
used even if our stock does not trade on one or more of the days. On days that
our stock does not trade, if any, the official closing price will be the same as
the official closing price of the previous day. Our Board of Directors believes
that the closing prices over a period of ten trading days best approximates
"fair value." The Board does not intend to obtain any appraisals or fairness
opinions in connection with the Transaction.

Effect of the Transaction on Ocwen

The Transaction will not affect the registration of the Common Stock with the
SEC under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Similarly, we do not
expect that the Transaction will affect the continued inclusion of the Common
Stock on The New York Stock Exchange. The par value of our Common Stock will
remain at $.01 per share after the Transaction. The number of authorized shares
of Common Stock will not change as a result of the Transaction.

The total number of shares that will be cashed-out and the total cash to be paid
by us will not be determined until after the effective date. By way of example,
if the Transaction had been completed as of February 24, 2006, when the average
official closing price per share of our Common Stock on The New York Stock
Exchange for the previous ten trading days was $9.96, and assuming 2,500 shares
were redeemed, we would have made cash payments for these redeemed shares
totaling $24,895. The actual amounts will depend on the number of fractional
shares redeemed on the effective date. The Transaction will have a de minimus
effect on the proportion of outstanding common shares controlled by our
directors and executive officers.

                                       24

<PAGE>

Stock Certificates

The Transaction will not affect any certificates representing shares of Common
Stock held by registered shareholders owning ten or more shares immediately
before the reverse split. Existing certificates held by any of these
shareholders will continue to evidence ownership of the same number of shares as
set forth on the face of the certificate. Any cashed-out shareholder with share
certificates will receive a letter of transmittal after the Transaction is
completed. These shareholders must complete and sign the letter of transmittal
and return it with their stock certificate(s) to Ocwen's transfer agent before
they can receive cash payment for those shares.

Potential Anti-Takeover Effect

The Transaction will not affect the number of authorized shares. Accordingly,
the Transaction will have the effect of creating additional authorized and
unissued shares of our Common Stock. The increase in authorized and unissued
shares of Common Stock is likely to be minimal based on the number of shares
that will be converted to cash under the Transaction. We have no current plans
to issue these shares; however, these shares may be issued in the future for
general corporate purposes. The increase in authorized but unissued shares of
Common Stock as a result of the Transaction may have the effect of discouraging
an attempt by another person or entity, through acquisition of a substantial
number of shares of Common Stock, to acquire control of us with a view to
effecting a merger, sale of assets, or similar transaction, since the issuance
of new shares could be used to dilute the stock ownership of such person or
entity. The authorized but unissued Common Stock could be issued to a holder who
would then have sufficient voting power to assure that any business combination
or any amendment to our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation would not
receive the stockholder vote required for approval. The Transaction is not being
proposed in response to any effort to accumulate shares of our Common Stock or
obtain control, nor is it part of a plan by management to recommend to the Board
of Directors and shareholders a series of amendments to our Articles of
Incorporation that could be construed to affect the ability of third parties to
take over or gain control.

Regulatory Requirements

Our Common Stock is currently registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act,
and as a result, we are subject to the periodic reporting and other requirements
of the Exchange Act. The Transaction will not affect the registration of our
common stock under the Exchange Act, and we have no present intention of
terminating its registration under the Exchange Act in order to become a
"private" company.

Certain Federal Income Tax Consequences

General Information. We have summarized below certain federal income tax
consequences to us and our shareholders resulting from the Transaction. This
summary is based on U.S. federal income tax law existing as of the date of this
proxy statement. These laws may change, even retroactively. This summary does
not discuss all aspects of federal income taxation that may be important to you
in light of your individual circumstances. Many shareholders, such as financial
institutions, insurance companies, broker-dealers, tax-exempt organizations and
foreign persons, may be subject to special tax rules. Other shareholders may
also be subject to special tax rules, including shareholders who received Common
Stock as compensation for services or pursuant to the exercise of an employee
stock option. In addition, this summary does not discuss any state, local,
foreign or other tax considerations. This summary assumes that you are a U.S.
citizen and have held, and will hold, your shares as capital assets under the
Code. You should consult your tax advisor as to the particular federal, state,
local, foreign and other tax consequences, in light of your specific
circumstances.

We believe that the Transaction will be treated as a tax-free "recapitalization"
for federal income tax purposes.

Federal Income Tax Consequences to Shareholders Who Retain All Shares of Their
Stock. If you continue to hold Common Stock immediately after the Transaction
and receive no cash as a result of the Transaction, you will not recognize any
gain or loss in the Transaction, and you will have the same adjusted tax basis
and holding period in your Common Stock as you had in the stock immediately
before the Transaction.

                                       25

<PAGE>

Federal Income Tax Consequences to Cashed-Out Shareholders. The federal income
tax consequences to cashed-out shareholders will depend in part on whether, in
addition to receiving cash, you or a person or entity related to you continues
to hold Common Stock immediately after the Transaction. The tax consequences of
these alternatives are discussed below.

     o    If you receive cash in exchange for a fractional share as a result of
          the Transaction, do not continue to hold any Common Stock immediately
          after the Transaction, and are not related to any person or entity
          which holds Common Stock immediately after the Transaction, you will
          recognize capital gain or loss in an amount equal to the difference
          between the cash you receive for your stock and your aggregate
          adjusted tax basis in the stock.

     o    If you are related to a person or entity who continues to hold Common
          Stock immediately after the Transaction, you will recognize gain in
          the same manner as set forth in the previous paragraph, provided that
          your receipt of cash either is "not essentially equivalent to a
          dividend," or is a "substantially disproportionate redemption of
          stock," as described below.

          Not Essentially Equivalent to a Dividend. You will satisfy the "not
          essentially equivalent to a dividend" test if the reduction in your
          proportionate interest in Ocwen resulting from the transaction is
          considered a "meaningful reduction" given your particular facts and
          circumstances. The Internal Revenue Service has ruled that a small
          reduction by a minority shareholder whose relative stock interest is
          minimal and who exercises no control over the affairs of the
          corporation will meet this test.

          Substantially Disproportionate Redemption of Stock. The receipt of
          cash in the Transaction will be a "substantially disproportionate
          redemption of stock" for you if the percentage of the outstanding
          shares of Common Stock owned by you immediately after the Transaction
          is less than 80% of the percentage of shares of Common Stock owned by
          you immediately before the Transaction.

In applying these tests, you will be treated as owning shares actually or
constructively owned by certain individuals and entities related to you. If the
taxable amount is not treated as capital gain under any of the tests, it will be
treated first as ordinary dividend income to the extent of your ratable share of
our undistributed earnings and profits, then as a tax-free return of capital to
the extent of your aggregate adjusted tax basis in your shares, and any
remaining gain will be treated as capital gain.

If you receive cash as a result of the Transaction and continue to hold Common
Stock immediately after the Transaction, you generally will recognize gain, but
not loss, in an amount equal to the lesser of the excess of the sum of the
aggregate fair market value of your shares of Common Stock plus the cash
received over your adjusted tax basis in the shares, or the amount of cash
received in the Transaction. In determining whether you continue to hold Common
Stock immediately after the Transaction, you will be treated as owning shares
actually or constructively owned by certain individuals and entities related to
you. Your aggregate adjusted tax basis in your shares of Common Stock held
immediately after the Transaction will be equal to your aggregate adjusted tax
basis in your shares of Common Stock held immediately prior to the Transaction,
increased by any gain recognized in the Transaction, and decreased by the amount
of cash received in the Transaction.

Any gain recognized in the Transaction will be treated, for federal income tax
purposes, as capital gain, provided that your receipt of cash either is "not
essentially equivalent to a dividend" with respect to you, or is a
"substantially disproportionate redemption of stock" with respect to you, under
the tests described above. In applying these tests, you may possibly take into
account sales of shares of Common Stock that occur substantially
contemporaneously with the Transaction. If your gain is not treated as capital
gain under any of these tests, the gain will be treated as ordinary dividend
income to you to the extent of your ratable share of our undistributed earnings
and profits, then as a tax-free return of capital to the extent of your
aggregate adjusted tax basis in your shares, and any remaining gain will be
treated as a capital gain.

You should consult your tax advisor as to the particular federal, state, local,
foreign, and other tax consequences of the Transaction, in light of your
specific circumstances.

Dissenter's Rights

Pursuant to Section 607.1302 of the Florida Statutes and our Articles of
Incorporation and By-laws, you are not entitled to dissenter's rights of
appraisal with respect to the Transaction since our common stock is currently
listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Reservation of Rights

We reserve the right to abandon the Transaction without further action by our
shareholders at any time before the filing of the necessary amendments to our
Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida,
even if the Transaction has been authorized by our shareholders at the Annual
Meeting.

    OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" THE AMENDMENT
    OF OUR ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION TO EFFECT A REVERSE/FORWARD STOCK SPLIT.

                         RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF
             INDEPENDENT REGISTERED CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
                                (Proposal Three)

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Ocwen has appointed
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, independent registered certified public accountants,

     o    Reviewed and discussed with management Ocwen's audited financial
          statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2005;
     o    Discussed with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Ocwen's independent
          registered certified public accounting firm, the matters required to
          be discussed by Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, "Communication
          with Audit Committees;" and
     o    Received and reviewed the written disclosures and the letter from
          PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP required by the Independence Standards
          Board's Independence Standard No. 1, "Independence Discussions with
          Audit Committees" and discussed with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP their
          independence.

In reliance on the review and discussion referred to above, the Committee
recommends to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be
included in Ocwen's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31,
2005.

Audit Fees. This category includes the aggregate fees billed for professional
services rendered for the audits of Ocwen's consolidated financial statements
for fiscal years 2005 and 2004, for the reviews of the financial statements
included in Ocwen's quarterly reports on Form 10-Q during fiscal 2005 and 2004

certified public accounting firm in connection with statutory and regulatory
filings or engagements for the relevant fiscal years.

Audit-Related Fees. This category includes the aggregate fees billed in each of
the last two fiscal years for assurance and related services by the independent
registered certified public accounting firm that are reasonably related to the
performance of the audits or reviews of the financial statements and are not
reported above under "Audit Fees" and generally consist of fees for other attest
engagements under professional auditing standards, internal control-related
matters, audits of employee benefit plans and due diligence.

Tax Fees. This category includes the aggregate fees billed in each of the last
two fiscal years for professional services rendered by the independent
registered certified public accounting firm for tax compliance, tax planning and
tax advice. Of these amounts, $75,309 and $53,509 were related to tax compliance
services for 2005 and 2004, respectively.

All Other Fees. This category includes the aggregate fees billed in each of the
last two fiscal years for products and services provided by the independent
registered certified public accounting firm that are not reported above under
"Audit Fees," "Audit-Related Fees" or "Tax Fees."

The Audit Committee considered the compatibility of the non-audit-related
services provided by and fees paid to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in 2005 and the
proposed services for 2006 and determined that such services and fees are
compatible with the independence of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

The Audit Committee is required to pre-approve the audit and non-audit services
performed by the independent registered certified public accounting firm in
order to assure that the provision of such services does not impair the
auditor's independence. Unless a type of service to be provided by the
independent auditor has received general pre-approval, it will require specific
pre-approval by the Audit Committee. In 2005, less than 1% of the fees
associated with the independent registered public accounting firm services were
not pre-approved by the Audit Committee.

                                                Audit Committee:
March 8, 2006                                   Ronald J.  Korn, Chairman
