Ocwen Financial Announces Operating Results for First Quarter 2020

  • Reported a Net Loss of $25.5 million and a Pre-tax Loss of $87.3 million for the first quarter of 2020 and ended the quarter with $429.9 million of total stockholders' equity, or a book value per share of $3.32.  Financial results included $78 million unfavorable impact on pre-tax loss due to changes in interest rates and a $62 million income tax benefit relating to changes in NOL utilization rules under the CARES Act.
     
  • Pre-tax income before notable items of $2 million, includes a $7 million unfavorable impact of COVID-19 during the quarter and $3 million unfavorable impact due to seasonal changes in employee costs and escrow balances versus the fourth quarter.
     
  • Ended the quarter with $263.6 million of cash despite $58.8 million of MSR financing margin calls and $133.6 million debt repayment.
     
  • Granted 114,600 active COVID-19 forbearance plans, or 8.5% of our total loans serviced as of April 30, 2020 for which we are directly obligated to advance on roughly 27% of these loans which is 7% of the Company’s total owned servicing portfolio.
     
  • Originated and purchased MSR UPB of approximately $4 billion and grew our owned servicing portfolio to $77.2 billion.  Originated approximately $11 billion of annualized volume across all retail and flow channels in March.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocwen Financial Corporation (NYSE: OCN) (“Ocwen” or the “Company”), a leading non-bank mortgage servicer and originator, today reported a net loss of $25.5 million, or $0.19 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to a net loss of $44.5 million or $0.33 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Glen A. Messina, President and CEO of Ocwen said, “The environment we are facing today is nothing like we expected at the start of the first quarter.  Our momentum from 2019 continued into the first quarter with solid progress on our growth strategy, financial performance and business improvement plans. We moved to a remote workforce model while responding to our borrowers need for forbearance relief.  I am extremely proud of how our team has reacted to address the welfare of our employees and ensure business continuity, while maintaining our high standards for operational excellence and compliance.”

Mr. Messina added, “While we are operating in an environment with increased risk, we believe there are increased opportunities in both origination and delinquent servicing.  We believe we are well positioned to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in both high quality MSR and delinquent servicing at very attractive returns.  We expect to have adequate liquidity to operate our business and originate approximately $25 billion in new servicing additions with a target 50/50 mix of owned servicing and sub servicing.” 

Mr. Messina continues, “Because of the uncertainties of operating in the current environment, we are not providing near term earnings guidance.  We continue to be one of the best servicers for non-performing loans with decades of experience. We are highly focused on exploring all strategic options to leverage our proven operating capability in this environment to create positive outcomes for consumers and fully realize the value of our platform for shareholders.”

First quarter 2020 Results

Pre-tax loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $87.3 million, which compares to a $41.1 million loss in the first quarter of 2019. We recorded an income tax benefit of $61.9 million primarily due to the estimated income tax benefit to be recognized under the CARES Act.

First quarter 2020 Business Highlights

  • We closed and originated MSRs with $2.9 billion of unpaid principal balance in the first quarter of 2020.

  • We completed 8,325 modifications in the quarter to help struggling families stay in their homes.

  • Our forward MSR hedge strategy, which includes our reverse MSR, forward lending pipeline and derivative hedge instruments, performed as expected with total coverage against our forward MSR equal to 43% of the decline in our forward MSR value.

  • Our operating expenses for the quarter were $137 million, which were down from our operating expenses of $206 million for the second quarter of 2018; we realized adjusted annualized run rate cost savings of $395 million as compared to the adjusted annualized run rate costs of Ocwen and PHH Corporation combined for the second quarter 2018.

  • Delinquencies, excluding the impact of loans in forbearance due to COVID-19, decreased from 6.3% at December 31, 2019 to 6.1% at March 31, 2020, primarily driven by loss mitigation efforts.

  • The constant pre-payment rate (CPR) decreased from 16.7% in the fourth quarter of 2019 to 14.7% in the first quarter of 2020 due to lower interest rates. In the first quarter of 2020, prime CPR was 17.2%, and non-prime CPR was 12.9%.

  • We elected the fair value option for future draw commitments for HECM loans purchased or originated before January 1, 2019 and recorded a $47.0 million adjustment to retained earnings as of January 1, 2020.

  • Repurchased 5.7 million shares in the quarter for a total cost of $4.6 million

Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain.

Forward-looking statements involve a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. In the past, actual results have differed from those suggested by forward looking statements and this may happen again.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, uncertainty relating to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including with respect to the response of the U.S. government, state governments, the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac, and together with Fannie Mae, the GSEs) and the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae), and regulators, as well as the potential for ongoing disruption in the financial markets and in commercial activity generally, increased unemployment, and other financial difficulties facing our borrowers; the proportion of borrowers who enter into forbearance plans, the financial ability of borrowers to resume repayment and their timing for doing so; reduced collection of servicing fees and ancillary income and delayed collection of servicing revenue as a result of forbearance plans and moratoria on evictions and foreclosure proceedings; impacts on our operations resulting from employee illness, social distancing measures and our shift to greater utilization of remote work arrangements; the adequacy of our financial resources, including our sources of liquidity and ability to sell, fund and recover servicing advances, forward and reverse whole loans, and HECM and forward loan buyouts and put backs, as well as repay, renew and extend borrowings, borrow additional amounts as and when required, meet our MSR or other asset investment objectives and comply with our debt agreements, including the financial and other covenants contained in them; increased servicing costs based on increased borrower delinquency levels or other factors; the size and timing of a potential reverse split of our common stock; our ability to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange; the future of our long-term relationship and remaining servicing agreements with New Residential Investment Corp.

Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as our references to adjusted annualized run rate cost savings and pre-tax income excluding income statement notables. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful supplement to discussions and analysis of our financial condition. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide an alternative way to view certain aspects of our business that is instructive. Below, we present supplemental information (including reconciliations) relating to certain illustrative adjustments to GAAP expenses, and pre-tax income (loss). We believe this information is instructive as an alternative way to view certain aspects of our business. In addition, management believes that these presentations may assist investors with understanding and evaluating our cost re-engineering efforts and other initiatives to drive improved financial performance. However, the adjustments we make to GAAP expenses and pre-tax income (loss) should not be analyzed in isolation or as a substitute to analysis of our GAAP expenses and pre-tax income (loss). There are certain limitations to the analytical usefulness of the adjustments we make to GAAP expenses and pre-tax income (loss) and, accordingly, we rely primarily on our GAAP results and use these adjustments only for purposes of supplemental analysis. For example, annualization of amounts relevant to one quarter may or may not be a good indicator of the relevant full year amount due to facts or circumstances impacting the quarter or the three subsequent quarters, among other factors. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, Ocwen's reported results under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Other companies may use non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar titles that are calculated differently to our non-GAAP financial measures. As a result, comparability may be limited. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on analysis of the adjustments we make to GAAP expenses and pre-tax income (loss).

In the table titled “Income Statement Notables”, we show certain illustrative adjustments to GAAP pre-tax income/(loss) for the following factors (1) Expense Notables (excluding MSR Valuation Adjustments, net), (2) changes in fair value of our Non-Agency MSRs due to changes in interest rates, valuation inputs and other assumptions, (3) changes in fair value of our Agency MSRs due to changes in interest rates, valuation inputs and other assumptions, net of hedge positions, (4) offsets to changes in fair value of our MSRs in our NRZ financing liability due to changes in interest rates, valuation inputs and other assumptions, (5) changes in fair value of our reverse originations portfolio due to changes in interest rates, valuation inputs and other assumptions, (6) gains related to exercising servicer call rights, (7) certain other costs, including pension benefits (collectively, Other) and (8) amortization of NRZ lump-sum cash payments consistent with the intent of providing management and investors with a supplemental means of evaluating our pre-tax income/(loss). Amounts included in Pre-Tax Loss excluding Income Statement Notables and Amortization of NRZ Lump-sum Cash Payments are expected to vary in each period due to changes in interest rates and other factors.
