Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NSM) (“Nationstar”), a leading residential mortgage services company, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

For the first quarter 2014, Nationstar reported net income of $24 million, or $0.27 per share, compared to a loss of $51 million, or ($0.56) per share in the fourth quarter 2013.

Pro forma EPS for the first quarter was $0.53, excluding $39 million in one-time expenses. Pro forma EPS for the first quarter was up in comparison to a pro forma EPS loss of ($0.23) in the fourth quarter. Pro forma EPS includes the net MSR mark-to-market impact of ($0.08).

Adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”) for operating segments was $170 million, or $1.89 per share, for the current quarter versus $25 million, or $0.28 per share, in the fourth quarter 2013. In the current quarter AEBITDA margin was 36%.

“Nationstar delivered improved performance across all of our business lines in the first quarter,” said Jay Bray, Chief Executive Officer. “After substantial growth in 2013, our 2014 focus is simple - continue to provide real solutions to homeowners and improve operating profitability and cash flow generation for our shareholders. In addition, we are executing on critical initiatives to drive long-term sustainability and growth. This includes our strategic acquisition of Real Estate Digital ("RED"), a fee-based real estate services company that provides online marketing, data, transaction management and digital media solutions. The acquisition accelerates our plan to offer a fully integrated digital marketplace that provides end-to-end services for every aspect of a real estate transaction. We welcome the RED employees to the Nationstar family.”

Chief Financial Officer David Hisey said, “Our servicing segment continues to increase profitability by generating 7 basis points of operating profitability in the first quarter and is on track towards our 2014 goal of 11 basis points. Reflecting momentum in our fee-based real estate services business, Solutionstar profitability grew at an impressive rate, with revenue increasing 22% and pretax income advancing 21%. In originations, we returned to operating profitability and reduced expenses by 37%. We expect to generate significant investable cash over the course of the year that can be deployed into high return opportunities.”
