In connection with the proposed transactions, Altisource and Ocwen will execute a five-year extension until 2025 of certain existing services agreements. Additionally, Ocwen will not develop similar fee-based services that would directly or indirectly compete with the services provided by Altisource to the Homeward Residential Holdings, Inc. and Residential Capital, LLC servicing portfolios. The proposed purchase price is subject to working capital and other adjustments, and consummation of the transactions is subject to a number of contingencies that are customary for a transaction of this nature, including various third party and regulatory consents and approvals. The purchase of the ResCap Fee-Based Businesses is also subject to Ocwen's closing of the underlying acquisition of the mortgage servicing platform from Residential Capital LLC, which is expected later in February 2013.
