Nationstar Mortgage Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Servicing AEBITDA increased 59% in the current quarter to $66.9 million compared to $42.1 million in the third quarter 2012 and was up 88% from $35.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Servicing AEBITDA margin was 42% in the current quarter, and servicing AEBITDA as a percentage of UPB was 13 basis points, an increase from the 9 basis point level in the prior quarter. Full year 2012 servicing AEBITDA was $181.2 million, up 69% from 2011.

In December 2012, Nationstar closed on a $13 billion GNMA forward portfolio. Nationstar has executed on flow agreements that are expected to produce $15 billion in annual volume. Nationstar expects flow servicing of $25-50 billion in annual potential as the program grows with additional clients.

Nationstar’s 60 plus day delinquency rate increased to 15.3% of UPB, up from 15.1% in the third quarter. This slight increase is related to fourth-quarter boardings of higher delinquency portfolios.

The Solutionstar business’ REO unit managed the sale of over 2,600 homes in Q4 2012. Solutionstar plans to significantly expand the REO management business in 2013, as REO properties under management are expected to significantly increase with the closing of the private-label MSR portfolio acquisitions from Bank of America.

Origination

Origination revenue increased 28% to $173.1 million in fourth quarter 2012 on a 72% quarterly increase in origination volume to $3.1 billion in fundings. Full year origination revenue was $486.9 million, up 294% from 2011. This was primarily due to the significant increase in origination volume – up 132% year-over-year – to $7.9 billion in 2012 total fundings. Wide spreads between the primary and secondary markets also supported the increase in revenues over prior periods.

Excluding the newly launched correspondent channel, origination revenue as a percentage of funded volume was 682 basis points, with total origination revenue including correspondent at 562 basis points. Of the $3.1 billion in fundings, 82% were from the consumer direct/builder/wholesale channels, and 18% were from the new correspondent channel.
