Ocwen Financial Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

The Company does not believe that the recent issues in the residential mortgage business regarding foreclosure processes and loan put backs had a measurable effect on Ocwen's results in the third quarter.

Servicing

In comparison to the third quarter of 2009, revenue was 51% higher, and the total unpaid principal balance serviced increased from $40.3 billion at September 30, 2009 to $76.1 billion at September 30, 2010. Operating expenses increased by 118% primarily due to $33.9 million in transaction expenses related to the HomEq acquisition. Pre-tax income for Servicing of $5.4 million was 69% lower than the same quarter last year but after adjusting for one-time charges income was 121%, or $21.6 million, higher due to growth and unit cost reductions.

Loans and Residuals

Loans and Residuals incurred a loss from continuing operations before taxes of $0.8 million as compared to a loss of $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2009. The balance of assets in this segment was $109.9 million at September 30, 2010, which includes $69.7 million of non-recourse assets associated with the four securitization trusts that we first included in our financial statements in 2010. The improvement in operating results reflects fewer loans becoming non-performing and a flattening of the decline in real estate valuations. 

Asset Management Vehicles

The loss from continuing operations before taxes for Asset Management Vehicles was $0.3 million as compared to $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2009. The carrying value of our investment in asset management vehicles was $12.3 million at September 30, 2010.

Corporate

In the third quarter of 2010, Corporate losses from continuing operations before taxes were $27.0 million compared to pre-tax profit of $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2009. The following items affected results in the quarter:

  • Litigation charge of $20.1 million primarily related to the Cartel judgment of $12.7 million.
  • Reduction in the estimated fair market value of Auction Rate Securities of $3.0 million, versus a $7.3 million increase in the third quarter of 2009.

Total consolidated assets increased by 84%, or $1.49 billion, to $3.26 billion during the first nine months of 2010, and total liabilities increased by 162%, or $1.46 billion, to $2.37 billion. These increases were primarily the result of purchasing and financing advances and mortgage servicing rights for the $6.9 billion in servicing acquired from Saxon and the $22.4 billion in servicing acquired from HomEq.
