New Residential Announces Additional Closing Of Previously Announced Excess MSR Transaction

New Residential (NYSE: NRZ, “New Residential”) announced that on July 18, 2013 it completed an additional closing of excess mortgage servicing rights (“Excess MSRs”) that it agreed to acquire as part of the previously announced transaction between Nationstar Mortgage LLC (“Nationstar”) and Bank of America (the “Transaction”). This closing relates to loans that are owned, insured or guaranteed by Ginnie Mae (“GNMA”) with an unpaid principal balance (“UPB”) of about $34 billion, which represents all of the GNMA UPB associated with the Transaction.

New Residential invested approximately $65 million to acquire the right to receive one-third of the monthly cash flow generated by the mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”), net of a basic fee paid to Nationstar. Nationstar is the servicer of the loans and has retained a one-third interest in the Excess MSRs; a Fortress Investment Group managed fund has acquired the remaining one-third interest. New Residential will not own the servicing rights and therefore will not have any servicing duties, advance obligations or liabilities associated with the portfolio.

Under the terms of this investment, to the extent that any loans in the portfolio are refinanced by Nationstar, the resulting MSRs will be included in the portfolio, subject to certain limitations. This is expected to significantly reduce the impact of prepayments on New Residential’s investment.

New Residential expects to complete the remainder of the Transaction in the third quarter, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing requirements.
