Walter Investment Management Corp. Announces The Completion Of $825 Million Incremental First Lien Term Loan Facility

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Walter Investment Management Corp. (NYSE: WAC) ("Walter Investment" or the "Company") announced today that it has completed the arrangement of it's incremental first lien term loan facility which was upsized due to significant demand from its original $475 million launch.

Credit Suisse Securities ( USA) LLC, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding Inc. and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated assisted the Company with the arrangement of an incremental $825 million facility to its existing $700 million senior secured first lien term loan facility maturing on November 28, 2017.  The Company intends to use the proceeds of borrowings to fund previously announced acquisitions of mortgage servicing rights (MSRs), to pay related transaction costs and expenses and for working capital and general corporate purposes.  The financing represents the completion of all necessary financings for committed projects including the ResCap and Bank of America MSR purchases and provides substantial remaining liquidity for the Company.

Mark J. O'Brien, Walter Investment's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "As a result of favorable conditions in the debt markets and strong reception of the Walter Investment credit, we were able to upsize the incremental facility to obtain the necessary funding for the acquisition of the Bank of America MSRs at very attractive terms.  We are very pleased by the substantial support we received from the lender group as well as with the competitive terms of the facility and associated attractive cost of capital.  We remain optimistic about the solid fundamentals in our sector and look forward to continuing our strong track record of growth and returns to all of our stakeholders."
