                      Ocwen Financial Corporation Announces
                  Board Approval of Reverse/Forward Stock Split

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (March 10, 2006) - Ocwen Financial Corporation (the
"Company") (NYSE: OCN) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved
a proposal to be submitted to shareholders at the Annual Meeting to be held on
May 4, 2006 to amend the Company's Articles of Incorporation to effect a
1-for-10 reverse stock split, followed immediately by a 10-for-1 forward stock
split (the "Reverse/Forward Split"). Assuming shareholders approve the proposal,
the Reverse/Forward Split is currently expected to be completed on May 12, 2006
(the "Effective Date").

As a result of the Reverse/Forward Split, accounts with less than ten shares of
common stock will be converted on the Effective Date into the right to receive a
cash payment for each share held equal in value to the average official closing
price of the common stock on The New York Stock Exchange over the ten trading
days immediately preceding the Effective Date. All shareholder accounts holding
ten shares or more will be unaffected, and the total number of shares held by
such accounts will not change. The Company intends to treat shareholders holding
common stock in street name through a nominee, such as a bank or broker-dealer,
in the same manner as shareholders whose shares are registered in their names.
Accordingly, the Company will instruct all nominees to effect the
Reverse/Forward Split for their beneficial holders. Shareholders who hold shares
in street name may wish to contact their bank or broker-dealer directly for more
information.

The Reverse/Forward Split is intended to reduce the Company's administrative
cost associated with the maintenance of nominal shareholder accounts while at
the same time providing shareholders holding fewer than ten shares with a
cost-effective way to cash out their investment without incurring brokerage or
service fees. While the Company anticipates proceeding with the Reverse/Forward
Split, shareholders should note that the Company's Board of Directors reserves
the right to abandon the transaction at any time before the Effective Date.
Additional information regarding the Reverse/Forward Split is contained in the
Company's preliminary proxy statement for the 2006 Annual Meeting (the
 
                                       3
