I am pleased to be speaking with you today as CEO and I look forward to working with our shareholders in my new role. I see a significant opportunity at PHH to create value for our shareholders, and in a moment I’ll lay out our key strategies to do that. PHH has been a leader in Mortgage Outsourcing and Fleet Management Services for a decade. We have built the client base of leading institutions that view us as a trusted partner to serve their customers and employees. We have been able to leverage our client base and track record into significant tale that provides us a defensible and expandable market position. The fundamentals of our business remains strong. We continue to grow our private-label relationships in mortgage through new client additions and increasing volume of existing clients. Our delinquencies are amongst the lowest in the industry and we generate substantial cash flows from our Mortgage Servicing business. Our Fleet business continues to deliver double-digit annual earnings growth while providing low risk returns and highly predictable cash flows. Going forward, we are focusing on four key strategies to increase shareholder value. First, we will continue to pursue disciplined growth in our three franchise platforms, consisting of mortgage, private-label services, our mortgage relationship with – and our Fleet Management business. Second, we will focus on driving industry-leading operational execution or operational excellence. Third, we will continue our unwavering commitment to customer service, and finally, in the near term, we look forward tight volatile liquidity, cash flow generation from both Mortgage and Fleet and deleveraging the balance sheet. We believe it’s essential to alleviate any concerns regarding our liquidity. Read the rest of this transcript for free on seekingalpha.com
