TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Walter Investment Management Corp. (NYSE MKT: WAC) (the "Company") announced today the commencement of a registered underwritten public offering of 4,500,000 shares of its common stock.

The Company today also announced the commencement of a registered underwritten public offering of $265.0 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior subordinated notes due 2019. The Company intends to grant the underwriters of the notes offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $25.0 million aggregate principal amount of the convertible senior subordinated notes.

There can be no assurance that such refinancing will occur at all or will occur on terms favorable to the Company.
