PHH Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: PHH

Mortgage Production and Mortgage Servicing

Mortgage Production Segment Profit

Mortgage Production segment profit in the second quarter of 2013 was $44 million, down 44% from $78 million in the second quarter of 2012 and down $1 million from the first quarter of 2013. Segment profit declined from the second quarter 2012 primarily due to a 20% decline in IRLCs expected to close, a 33 bps decline in total loan margin and greater operating expenses as a result of higher retail origination volume. A slight decline in sequential quarter segment profit reflected the impact of narrower total loan margin offset by 9% growth in IRLCs expected to close.

Mortgage Servicing Segment Profit

Mortgage Servicing segment profit in the second quarter of 2013 was $81 million, which included a favorable $155 million market-related fair value adjustment to our MSR, primarily from an increase in mortgage interest rates, which was offset slightly by $1 million in hedge losses. The MSR fair value adjustment for prepayments and recurring cash flows was an unfavorable $80 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to an unfavorable $77 million in the first quarter of 2013. Loan servicing income includes losses associated with the termination of reinsurance agreements of $21 million and $16 million in the second quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Repurchase and foreclosure-related charges during the second quarter of 2013 decreased to $11 million from $39 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $15 million in the first quarter of 2013. Repurchase and foreclosure-related charges were reflective of the continued decrease in repurchase requests as the Agencies have continued to focus on reviewing loans from pre-2009 origination years.

Interest Rate Lock Commitments

IRLCs expected to close of $5.4 billion in the second quarter of 2013 declined 20% from the second quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting declining demand for refinancings attributable to rising interest rates, a decline in wholesale/correspondent volume as we remain focused on cash usage and the relative profitability of wholesale/correspondent originations, and a continued shift in mix toward fee-based production. IRLCs expected to close increased 9% from $5.0 billion in the first quarter of 2013, driven by sequential quarter growth in home purchase volume and the addition of HSBC as a private label client, partially offset by a greater portion of our production done on a fee-for-service basis.
