    First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

    GAAP net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $172.7 million, or ($4.85) per share, as compared to a GAAP net loss of $31.0 million, or ($0.82) per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.  Included in the 2016 net loss are pre-tax, non-cash charges of $226.6 million resulting from changes in valuation inputs and other assumptions used in the fair value of assets and liabilities carried at fair value, or ($3.95) per share after tax(2).  Adjusted EBITDA ("AEBITDA") was $87.1 million and Adjusted Loss for the current quarter was $17.8 million after tax(2), or ($0.50) per share(2)..

    "First quarter performance was significantly impacted by the challenging rate environment. The decline in rates drove a volatile MSR market and negatively impacted results through the revaluation of mortgage servicing rights and accelerated prepayments," said Denmar J. Dixon, Walter Investment's Vice Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President.

    "We are moving with a sense of urgency to improve upon both the customer experience and our operating performance, and we are in the early stages of a transformation of the company. We are working to significantly lower our cost structure while redesigning our processes and driving a culture of excellence at Walter that puts our home-owning customers first," continued Dixon.

    First Quarter 2016 Financial and Operating Overview

    Total revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $66.8 million, a decrease of $244.1 million as compared to the prior year quarter, driven by $196.6 million lower net servicing revenue and fees reflecting a $197.3 million change in fair value charges to mortgage servicing rights.  Additionally, the current quarter reflects $40.8 million lower net gains on sales of loans primarily due to a lower volume of locked loans in the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter. This was partially offset by a shift in mix from the lower margin correspondent channel to the higher margin consumer channel and $19.8 million lower interest income on loans driven by the sale of the residual interests in seven of the Residual Trusts. The quarter also includes $12.4 million in higher other income driven by higher fair value gains related to charged-off loans due to an improvement in collections expectations over time.

    Total expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $343.4 million, 8% lower as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily driven by $15.2 million lower operating expenses due to a decrease in compensation, benefits and incentives resulting from a lower number of employees as compared to the prior year quarter, as well as a decrease in commissions caused by lower originations volume.  The decreases were partially offset by higher severance costs and $10.6 million lower interest expense primarily due to the sale of the residual interests in seven of the Residual Trusts.

    Segment Results

    Results for the Company's segments are presented below.

    Servicing

    During the first quarter of 2016, the Servicing segment added approximately $17.5 billion of UPB to the serviced book of business through a combination of MSR acquisitions, sub-servicing arrangements and originated MSR, ending the quarter with approximately 2.2 million total accounts serviced with a UPB of approximately $255.3 billion. Ditech is nationally ranked as a top 10 servicer by UPB. During the quarter, the Company experienced a net disappearance rate of 13.0% as compared to 13.8% in the prior year quarter which was aided by the retention performance of the Originations segment.

    The Servicing segment had negative revenue of ($63.3) million in the first quarter of 2016, a $207.0 million decline as compared to first quarter of 2015, reflecting the impact of fair value charges to our mortgage servicing rights.  Additionally, interest income on loans was lower in the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter driven by the sale of the residual interests in seven of the Residual Trusts, partially offset by higher other income primarily due to higher fair value gains relating to charged-off loans resulting from an increase in expected collections over time.

    Expense for the Servicing segment was $193.2 million, relatively flat as compared to the prior year quarter.  The current quarter reflects $10.7 million lower interest expense as compared to the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to the sale of the residual interests in seven of the Residual Trusts, offset by $10.3 million higher operating expenses driven by higher legal expenses and costs associated with the conversion to the MSP platform.  Current quarter expenses also included $10.8 million of depreciation and amortization costs. 

    The segment generated AEBITDA of $74.6 million, a decline of 28% as compared to the first quarter of 2015, primarily due to $8.8 million lower net interest income due to the sale of the residual interests in seven of the Residual Trusts, $4.4 million lower net gain on sales of loans, $3.8 million lower insurance revenue, higher legal expenses and elevated expenses related to efficiency and technology related initiatives including the conversion to MSP.  The segment had an Adjusted Loss of $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the prior year quarter's Adjusted Earnings of $40.1 million, driven by the aforementioned items as well as $13.4 million of unfavorable changes in the fair value of servicing rights attributable to higher realization of cash flows reflecting the impact of accelerated prepayments. 

    Originations

    Total pull-through adjusted locked volume for the first quarter of $4.6 billion declined as compared to $6.9 billion in the first quarter of 2015, primarily due to volume decreases in the correspondent lending channel resulting from an increase to return hurdles for acquired MSR and increased market competition. Funded loans in the current quarter totaled $5.0 billion, a decrease of 9.1% from the prior year quarter, with approximately 36% of that volume in the consumer lending channel and approximately 64% generated by the correspondent lending channel. Ditech is nationally ranked as a top 15 originator by UPB.  The combined direct margin for the current quarter was 80 bps, an overall increase of 11 bps from the prior year quarter, consisting of a weighted average of 203 bps direct margin in the consumer lending channel and 24 bps direct margin in the correspondent lending channel as mix shifted from the lower margin correspondent channel to the higher margin consumer channel.  The Originations business delivered a recapture rate of 26% for the current quarter.

    The Originations segment generated revenue of $100.3 million in the first quarter of 2016, a 23% decline as compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to a $37.4 million decrease in net gains on sales of loans driven by a lower volume of locked loans during the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter resulting from an increase in market competition within the correspondent lending channel and lower retention volumes as there was a slight market shift toward increased volumes of purchase money originations and away from refinancing volumes.  These declines were partially offset by a $7.4 million increase in other revenues driven by higher origination fees.  Expenses for the Originations segment of $83.9 million, which include $8.3 million of interest expense and $2.3 million of depreciation and amortization, declined 5% compared to the prior year quarter.

    The segment generated Adjusted Earnings of $17.9 million and AEBITDA of $23.8 million for the first quarter of 2016, a decrease of $26.4 million and $23.0 million, respectively as compared to the prior year quarter, driven primarily by the lower net gain on sales of loans, partially offset by higher origination fee income.

    Reverse Mortgage

    The Reverse Mortgage business grew its serviced portfolio 9% as compared to the prior year to $20.4 billion of UPB at March 31, 2016.  During the first quarter, the business securitized $188 million of HECM loans.  Additionally during the quarter, the business entered into a new $100 million GNMA buy-out facility enhancing its liquidity position.

    The Reverse Mortgage segment generated revenue of $44.1 million for the quarter, flat as compared to the prior year quarter.  Current quarter revenues included a gain of $35.2 million due to the net impact of fair value relating to HECM loans and related HMBS obligations, $6.9 million in net servicing revenue and fees and $2.0 million of other revenues.  Total expenses for the first quarter of $38.0 million were 34% lower as compared to the prior year period, primarily driven by $16.1 million lower curtailment expenses and $6.5 million lower salaries and benefits expense primarily due to lower commissions and bonuses as a result of lower origination volumes, coupled with fewer employees.

    The segment reported an Adjusted Loss of $10.4 million and AEBITDA of ($9.5) million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to Adjusted Loss of $1.3 million and break-even AEBITDA in the first quarter of 2015 reflecting lower securitization volumes and a reduction in net servicing revenue and fees.

    Securitized and funded originations volumes decreased as compared to the prior year quarter as volumes were negatively impacted by the financial assessment rules and the effects of other regulatory changes, as well as operational disruption in the Reverse Mortgage retail channel and a decision to reduce participation in the correspondent market based on current pricing levels.

    Other Non-Reportable Segment

    The Other Non-Reportable segment generated insignificant revenue for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to revenue of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2015.  Revenues in the prior year quarter were primarily driven by $2.6 million gain related to the settlement of a receivable.  Total expenses in the current quarter were $42.7 million, flat as compared to the prior year quarter, and included $35.9 million of interest expense related to corporate debt.

    The Other non-reportable segment had an Adjusted Loss of $34.9 million and AEBITDA of ($1.7) million for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to an Adjusted Loss of $21.4 million and AEBITDA of $12.9 million in the first quarter of 2015.  The approximate $14.0 million decline in each metric is driven primarily by the first quarter of 2015 including $14.4 million of income related to the sale of an investment accounted for using the equity method.

    All of the above factors, risks and uncertainties are difficult to predict, contain uncertainties that may materially affect actual results and may be beyond our control. New factors, risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for our management to predict all such factors, risks and uncertainties.

    Although we believe that the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements (including those relating to our outlook) contained herein are reasonable, any of the assumptions could be inaccurate, and therefore any of these statements included herein may prove to be inaccurate. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that the results or conditions described in such statements or our objectives and plans will be achieved. We make no commitment to revise or update any forward-looking statements in order to reflect events or circumstances after the date any such statement is made, except as otherwise required under the federal securities laws. If we were in any particular instance to update or correct a forward-looking statement, investors and others should not conclude that we would make additional updates or corrections thereafter except as otherwise required under the federal securities laws.

    Amounts or metrics that relate to future earnings projections are forward-looking and subject to significant business, economic, regulatory and competitive uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of us and our management, and are based upon assumptions with respect to future decisions, which are subject to change. Actual results will vary and those variations may be material. Nothing in this press release should be regarded as a representation by any person that any target will be achieved and we undertake no duty to update any target. Please refer to the disclosures in this press release, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2016 and our other filings with the SEC for important information regarding forward-looking statements and the use and limitations of non-GAAP financial measures. Because we do not predict special items that might occur in the future, and our outlook is developed at a level of detail different than that used to prepare GAAP financial measures, we are not providing a reconciliation to GAAP of any forward-looking financial measures presented herein.

    In addition, this press release may contain statements of opinion or belief concerning market conditions and similar matters.  In certain instances, those opinions and beliefs could be based upon general observations by members of our management, anecdotal evidence and/or our experience in the conduct of our business, without specific investigation or statistical analyses. Therefore, while such statements reflect our view of the industries and markets in which we are involved, they should not be viewed as reflecting verifiable views and such views may not be shared by all who are involved in those industries or markets.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    We manage our Company in three reportable segments: Servicing, Originations and Reverse Mortgage. We measure the performance of our business segments through the following measures: income (loss) before income taxes, Adjusted Earnings (Loss), and Adjusted EBITDA. Management considers Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA, both non-GAAP financial measures, to be important in the evaluation of our business segments and of the Company as a whole, as well as for allocating capital resources to our segments. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental metrics utilized by management to assess the underlying key drivers and operational performance of the continuing operations of the business. In addition, analysts, investors, and creditors may use these measures when analyzing our operating performance. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP and our use of these measures and terms may vary from other companies in our industry.

    Adjusted Earnings (Loss) is defined as income (loss) before income taxes plus changes in fair value due to changes in valuation inputs and other assumptions; certain depreciation and amortization costs related to the increased basis in assets (including servicing rights and sub-servicing contracts) acquired within business combination transactions (or step-up depreciation and amortization); goodwill impairment, if any; a portion of the provision for curtailment expense, net of expected third-party recoveries; share-based compensation expense; non-cash interest expense; restructuring costs; estimated settlements and costs for certain legal and regulatory matters; fair value to cash adjustments for reverse loans; and select other cash and non-cash adjustments primarily including certain non-recurring costs; severance; gain or loss on extinguishment of debt; the net impact of the Non-Residual Trusts; and transaction and integration costs. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) excludes unrealized changes in fair value of MSRs that are based on projections of expected future cash flows and prepayments. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) includes both cash and non-cash gains from mortgage loan origination activities. Non-cash gains are net of non-cash charges or reserves provided. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) includes cash generated from reverse mortgage origination activities. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) may from time to time also include other adjustments, as applicable based upon facts and circumstances, consistent with the intent of providing investors with a supplemental means of evaluating our operating performance.

    Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before income taxes; amortization of servicing rights and other fair value adjustments; interest expense on corporate debt; depreciation and amortization; goodwill impairment, if any; a portion of the provision for curtailment expense, net of expected third-party recoveries; share-based compensation expense; restructuring costs; estimated settlements and costs for certain legal and regulatory matters; fair value to cash adjustments for reverse loans; and select other cash and non-cash adjustments primarily certain non-recurring costs; the net provision for the repurchase of loans sold; non-cash interest income; severance; gain or loss on extinguishment of debt; interest income on unrestricted cash and cash equivalents; the net impact of the Non-Residual Trusts; the provision for loan losses; Residual Trust cash flows; transaction and integration costs; and servicing fee economics. Adjusted EBITDA includes both cash and non-cash gains from mortgage loan origination activities. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of fair value option accounting on certain assets and liabilities and includes cash generated from reverse mortgage origination activities. Adjusted EBITDA may also include other adjustments, as applicable based upon facts and circumstances, consistent with the intent of providing investors a supplemental means of evaluating our operating performance.

    Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to (i) net income (loss) or any other performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP or (ii) operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA have important limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations of these metrics are:

    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect cash expenditures for long-term assets and other items that have been and will be incurred, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect certain tax payments that represent reductions in cash available to us;
    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future;
    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect non-cash compensation which is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package;
    • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the change in fair value due to changes in valuation inputs and other assumptions;
    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the change in fair value resulting from the realization of expected cash flows; and
    • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our servicing rights related liabilities and corporate debt, although it does reflect interest expense associated with our servicing advance liabilities, master repurchase agreements, mortgage-backed debt, and HMBS related obligations.

    Because of these limitations, Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplements. Users of our financial statements are cautioned not to place undue reliance on Adjusted Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA.
