Ocwen Financial Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Asset Management Vehicles

The loss from continuing operations before taxes for Asset Management Vehicles was $0.1 million as compared to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2009. The carrying value of our investment in asset management vehicles was $13.5 million at June 30, 2010.

Corporate

In the second quarter of 2010, Corporate losses from continuing operations before taxes were $7.1 million compared to pre-tax profit of $3.0 million in the second quarter of 2009. The following unique items impacted the quarter:

  • We sold $46.8 million of auction rate securities on June 29 th at a loss of $1.7 million. In comparison, gains on auction rate securities in the second quarter of 2009 were $6.0 million.
  • We wrote off a $3.0 million interest in a real estate partnership which was deemed uncollectible during the second quarter.

Our exposure to non-core assets subject to valuation estimates has decreased significantly as our portfolio of Auction rate securities, Subordinates and residuals, Loans held for resale and Investments in unconsolidated entities have decreased by 59% since December 31, 2009.

Total consolidated assets increased by 17%, or $308.2 million, to $2,077.5 million during the first six months of 2010, and Total liabilities increased by 30%, or $274.1 million, to $1,177.6 million. These increases were primarily the result of advances from the $6.9 billion in servicing acquired from Saxon.  

Ocwen Financial Corporation is a leading provider of residential and commercial loan servicing, special servicing and asset management services. Ocwen is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida with offices in California, the District of Columbia and Georgia and support operations in India and Uruguay. Utilizing proprietary technology and world-class training and processes, we provide solutions that make our clients' loans worth more. Additional information is available at www.ocwen.com .
