PHH Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

Total Loan Margin

Total loan margin on IRLCs expected to close for the second quarter of 2013 was 348 bps, a 24 bps decrease from the first quarter of 2013 and 33 bps less than the second quarter of 2012. Margins narrowed in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to rising mortgage interest rates. Margins generally widen when mortgage interest rates decline and tighten when mortgage interest rates increase, as loan originators attempt to balance origination volume with operational capacity.

Mortgage Closing Volume

Total second quarter 2013 mortgage closings were $14.8 billion, a 15% increase from the second quarter of 2012. Retail closings increased 21% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012 and 16% compared to the first quarter of 2013, reflecting our strategy of growth in our retail channels. Retail closings represented 91% of our total closings during the second quarter of 2013. Fee-based closings continued to trend higher in the second quarter of 2013, increasing to 51% of total retail closings. This was up from 43% of total retail closings in the second quarter of 2012 and 47% of total retail closings in the first quarter of 2013. Our private label agreement with HSBC that was launched in the second quarter of 2013 did not meaningfully contribute to closing volume in the quarter.

Unpaid Principal Balance of Mortgage Servicing Portfolio

At June 30, 2013, the UPB of our capitalized servicing portfolio was $133.1 billion, down 3% from March 31, 2013, and 10% from June 30, 2012. These decreases reflect prepayments that were not fully offset by additions from new loan production.

At June 30, 2013, the UPB of our total loan servicing portfolio was $228.6 billion, a 26% increase from March 31, 2013, and a 19% increase from June 30, 2012. The sequential quarter and year-over-year increases in our total loan servicing portfolio primarily reflect approximately $47 billion of subservicing UPB that we assumed from HSBC in the second quarter of 2013, partially offset by the aforementioned declines in the UPB of our capitalized servicing portfolio.
