Ocwen Financial Announces Operating Results For Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013

  • Q4 Net income of $105 million and Revenue of $556 million
  • Full-year 2013 Net income of $294 million and EPS of $2.02   

ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocwen Financial Corporation, (NYSE:OCN), a leading financial services holding company, today reported Net income of $105.3 million, or $0.74 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to Net income of $65.3 million, or $0.47 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Ocwen generated revenue of $556.0 million, up 135% from the fourth quarter of 2012. Income from operations grew by 56% to $215.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to $137.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Full year Net income for 2013 is $294.1 million, or $2.02 per share, as compared to $180.9 million, or $1.31 per share, for 2012. Revenue for 2013 of $2.0 billion is a 141% increase from 2012.

Pre-tax earnings on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $120.1 million, a 57% increase as compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. Ocwen's normalized pre-tax earnings for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $166.9 million, a 100% increase from the fourth quarter of 2012.  Ocwen incurred a total of $46.8 million in normalized expenses in the fourth quarter of 2013 that are primarily transition-related expenses associated with 2013 transactions.

Full year pre-tax earnings on a GAAP basis for 2013 were $335.2 million, a 30% increase over 2012. Full year normalized pre-tax earnings for 2013 increased by 101% over 2012 from $289.4 million to $581.2 million.

"Our solid financial performance enabled us to initiate a stock repurchase program in the fourth quarter while maintaining the strongest capital ratios among our peers," commented Bill Erbey, Ocwen's Chairman. "We are working cooperatively with the New York Department of Financial Services to address its concerns that led to an indefinite hold on our transaction with Wells Fargo. Longer-term we believe developments remain positive for our business, particularly in three areas. First, prepayments continue to trend lower, lengthening the duration of our assets. Secondly, Ocwen's continued ability to help homeowners with foreclosure alternatives along with an improving economy continues to drive down delinquencies on loans we service and further slows prepayments. Lastly, the OASIS financing that we just closed should enhance our prime origination business. Oasis enables us to reduce our exposure to prepayment risk and lower our cost of capital disadvantage vis-à-vis commercial banks."
