Newcastle Announces Completion Of First Closing Of The Aurora Investment

Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE: NCT) announced today that on June 12, 2012, it completed the first closing of its co-investment with Nationstar Mortgage LLC related to their acquisition of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) from Aurora Bank FSB, a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Bancorp Inc. The first closing relates to MSRs on two government-sponsored enterprise (“GSE”) loan pools with an unpaid principal balance of $16.1 billion. Newcastle is acquiring the right to receive 65% of the monthly cash flow generated by the MSRs, net of a base fee paid to Nationstar. Newcastle will not own the servicing rights and therefore will not have any servicing duties, advance obligations or liabilities associated with the portfolio. As previously disclosed, the closing of the investment in the remaining MSRs on the private label pools, is expected to occur on or about June 26, 2012, and we plan to post a presentation on our website outlining the entire Aurora investment at that time.


The Company invests in real estate debt and other real estate related assets, including excess mortgage servicing rights. The Company is organized and conducts its operations to qualify as a real estate investment trust (REIT) for federal income tax purposes. The Company is managed by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC, a global investment management firm.
