ATLANTA, May 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocwen Financial Corporation, (NYSE:OCN), a leading financial services holding company, today reported Net income of $45.1 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of 2013 compared to Net income of $19.3 million, or $0.14 per share, for the first quarter of 2012.

Ocwen's normalized pre-tax earnings were $101.4 million, a 90% increase over normalized pre-tax earnings in the first quarter of 2012 and a 22% increase over the fourth quarter of 2012. The adjustments in the first quarter of 2013 included: $38.2 million of transition expenses; the write-off of $17.0 million of unamortized deferred costs and discount associated with the early termination and replacement of a senior secured term loan facility; and $5.1 million of contribution from sold operations. Ocwen generated Cash flow from operations of $401.9 million.

For more detail on normalizing items as well as prior earnings releases and SEC filings please refer to the "Shareholder Relations" section of our website at www.ocwen.com .

"The Company's string of record quarterly revenues will continue into the second quarter as we benefit from a full quarter of ResCap revenue and our recent acquisition of Ally Bank's mortgage servicing rights," commented Bill Erbey, Ocwen's Chairman. "Ocwen's core earnings and cash-flow were strong in the first quarter, and we should see these trend higher as a percentage of revenue as we drive down costs and delinquencies on newly acquired business. Ocwen's lower funding costs and improving pre-pay speeds on non-prime loans should also support better performance versus our original expectations."
