Nationstar Mortgage Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: NSM

Nationstar’s servicing portfolio, as measured by unpaid principal balance (“UPB”), increased 5% to end the fourth quarter at $208 billion compared to the prior quarter ending balance of $198 billion. 2012 ending UPB was up 94% over 2011 ending balance of $107 billion.

“2012 was a very successful and important year for Nationstar, and we have made great strides in building one of the leading residential mortgage services companies in the United States,” said Jay Bray, Chief Executive Officer of Nationstar. “Each quarter this year, we consistently achieved meaningful sequential growth in revenue and earnings while delivering high returns to our shareholders. We invested in infrastructure and built capacity in preparation for our landmark servicing portfolio acquisitions, Aurora and Bank of America. We continue to organically grow servicing with a continued focus on portfolio recapture and expansion of our builder and other origination channels. Our Solutionstar initiative is expanding our fee-based services offering across the entire mortgage lifecycle. We look forward to further growth in 2013 with a rigorous focus on delivering value to our shareholders. We remain focused on providing homeownership solutions to our customers and best-in-class servicing performance for investors.”

Chief Financial Officer David Hisey said, “Our strong financial results reflect our continued focus on increasing profitably as we capitalize on the many growth opportunities in front of us. Servicing profitability is a high priority for us, as reflected in the increase in servicing profit and margins in the fourth quarter. Origination margins remained near historical highs as we continued to grow volumes in multiple channels. We raised additional capital at lower costs to support our capital-light growth strategy and drive shareholder returns. In 2013 we will continue to focus on profitable growth across all of our business segments. Within servicing, we will look to drive down cost per loan, delinquencies, and advance financing costs as we scale the platform over time. We will also pursue fee-based services acquisitions that meet our return thresholds.”
