    Walter Investment Management Corp. Announces First Quarter 2017 Highlights And Financial Results
    - Reported first quarter 2017 GAAP net income of $1.9 million, or $0.05 per share
    - Leadership team additions bolster servicing, consumer operations and procurement

    FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Walter Investment Management Corp. (NYSE: WAC) today announced GAAP net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 of $1.9 million, or $0.05 per share, as compared to a GAAP net loss of $172.7 million, or $4.85 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The 2017 first quarter net income included a $42.0 million after tax, or $1.14 per share, gain on the sale of the principal insurance agency and substantially all of the insurance agency business, which was completed on February 1, 2017, and a non-cash fair value charge of $6.7 million after tax, or $0.18 per share, due to changes in valuation inputs and other assumptions. Adjusted Loss was $25.4 million after tax, or $0.70 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA ("AEBITDA") was $43.3 million in the current quarter as compared to Adjusted Loss of $24.5 million after tax, or $0.69 per share and AEBITDA of $87.1 million in the prior year quarter.

    "We are focused on building out our leadership and management team, our capital efficiency, including our debt restructuring and core and legacy initiatives, and improving our process efficiency and operational effectiveness," said Anthony Renzi, Chief Executive Officer and President of Walter. "We continue to be confident that the changes underway will put Walter in the best position to succeed but it will take time to implement and realize the benefits of these changes."

    The Company recently changed its principal executive offices from Tampa, Florida to Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, which change was due to, among other things, the Chief Executive Officer and President and certain other senior executive officers of the Parent Company being based in Fort Washington.

    First Quarter 2017 Financial and Operating Overview

    Total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $245.3 million, an increase of $178.5 million as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to an increase of $218.9 million in net servicing revenue and fees partially offset by a $20.5 million decrease in fair value gains on reverse loans and related HMBS obligations. The increase in net servicing revenue and fees primarily resulted from a $273.1 million improvement in fair value losses on mortgage servicing rights driven by changes in valuation inputs or other assumptions. Offsetting this increase was a $44.4 million decline in servicing fees primarily due to the planned shift of the third-party servicing portfolio from servicing to subservicing combined with runoff of the portfolio.

    Total expenses for the first quarter of 2017 were $313.7 million, a decrease of $29.7 million as compared to the prior year quarter, driven primarily by headcount related expenses, including $12.9 million decrease in compensation and benefits resulting primarily from a lower average headcount driven by site closures and various organizational changes, as well as the decision to exit the reverse mortgage originations business, $4.6 million decrease in bonus accruals, $3.5 million decrease related to a change in the commissions structure, and $3.4 million reduction in overtime driven by cost reduction measures.

    In addition, pre-tax income for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, included a $67.7 million gain on the sale of the principal insurance agency and substantially all of the insurance agency business, which was completed on February 1, 2017.

    Results for the Company's segments are presented below.

    Servicing

    Ditech serviced 1.9 million accounts, with a UPB of $220.2 billion as of March 31, 2017. During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the Company experienced a net disappearance rate of 13.56%, an increase of 0.58% as compared to the prior year quarter.

    The Servicing segment reported $33.2 million of pre-tax income for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to a pre-tax loss of $256.3 million in the prior year quarter. During the first quarter of 2017, the segment generated revenue of $147.8 million, a $211.0 million increase as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to an increase of $218.1 million in net servicing revenue and fees. The increase in net servicing revenue and fees primarily resulted from a $273.1 million improvement in fair value losses on mortgage servicing rights driven by changes in valuation inputs or other assumptions. Partially offsetting this increase was a $44.5 million decline in servicing fees primarily due to the planned shift of the third-party servicing portfolio from servicing to subservicing combined with runoff of the portfolio.

    Total expenses in the Servicing segment for the first quarter of 2017 were $180.9 million, a decrease of $12.2 million as compared to the prior year quarter. This decrease was driven by $11.4 million of lower compensation and benefits resulting primarily from a lower average headcount driven by site closures and organizational changes, $5.4 million in lower compensating interest due to a shift from servicing to subservicing, $3.5 million decrease related to a change in the commissions structure, $2.4 million in lower postage and printing costs driven by fewer mailings made during the first quarter of 2017, $1.7 million in lower contractor costs related to the servicing platform conversion that occurred in the second quarter of 2016 and $1.2 million reduction in overtime driven by cost reduction measures. These decreases were partially offset by $8.3 million in higher charges associated with foreclosure and bankruptcy practices, $4.3 million in additional costs associated with the use of MSP and outsourcing initiatives, $3.0 million in higher legal expenses, $2.1 million in professional fees related to the sale of substantially all of the insurance agency business in the first quarter of 2017, and $1.3 million in higher advance loss provision. Current quarter expenses included $13.5 million of interest expense and $8.9 million of depreciation and amortization.

    The Servicing segment reported an Adjusted Loss of $19.6 million and AEBITDA of $30.7 million for the first quarter of 2017, a decline of $8.7 million and $43.9 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year quarter. The declines in these metrics were due to lower adjusted revenues, partially offset by decreased expenses, as described above.

    Originations

    Ditech generated total pull-through adjusted locked volume of $4.9 billion for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of $0.3 billion as compared to the prior year quarter, driven by increases in the correspondent and wholesale lending channels. Funded loans in the current quarter totaled $5.0 billion, which was consistent with the prior year quarter. The combined direct margin for the current quarter was 51 bps, consisting of a weighted average of 148 bps direct margin in the consumer lending channel and 32 bps direct margin in the correspondent channel. The decrease in combined direct margin of 29 bps from the prior year quarter was primarily due to lower gain on sale of loans and fee income margins, partially offset by lower direct expense margins. Gain on sale margins decreased due to the shift in mix to the lower margin correspondent and wholesale channels, combined with lower margins in the consumer channel due to a lower portion of HARP volume. Fee income margins declined during the three months ended March 31, 2017 primarily in the consumer channel as loans continued to fund during the quarter under a program in place through December 31, 2016 in which certain fees were waived. Direct expense margins declined primarily due to lower intersegment expense as a result of lower portion of retention volume subject to the lead fee and lower servicing rights values. The Originations business delivered a recapture rate of 26% for the current quarter.

    The Originations segment reported $10.8 million of pre-tax income for the first quarter of 2017, a decrease of $5.6 million from the prior year quarter. During the first quarter of 2017, this segment generated revenue of $80.8 million, a decrease of $19.5 million from the prior year quarter. Net gains on sales of loans decreased $14.3 million as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower gain on sale margins in the consumer channel combined with a shift in mix from the higher margin consumer channel to the lower margin correspondent and wholesale channels, which was partially offset by an increase in total locked volume during the quarter.

    Total expenses for the Originations segment for the first quarter of 2017 were $70.0 million, a decrease of $13.9 million compared to the prior year quarter, driven by a $7.1 million decrease in intersegment retention expense, a $4.1 million decrease in general and administrative expenses primarily due to lower advertising costs and a $2.4 million decrease in salaries and benefits expenses. Current quarter expenses included $9.4 million of interest expense and $1.0 million of depreciation and amortization.

    The Originations segment reported Adjusted Earnings of $12.2 million and AEBITDA of $12.4 million for the first quarter of 2017, a decrease of $5.5 million and $11.4 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year quarter, due primarily to lower revenues offset by a decrease in expenses, as described above.

    Reverse Mortgage

    The Reverse Mortgage segment serviced 116,452 accounts, with a UPB of $20.5 billion at March 31, 2017. During the current quarter, the business securitized $140.8 million of HECM loans.

    The Reverse Mortgage segment reported $5.3 million of pre-tax loss for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to pre-tax income of $5.0 million in the prior year quarter. During the first quarter of 2017, this segment generated revenue of $22.5 million, a decline of $21.6 million from the prior year quarter, primarily driven by a decrease of $21.0 million in net non-cash fair value adjustments due primarily to higher LIBOR rates in 2017 as compared to 2016. Cash generated by the origination, purchase and securitization of HECMs decreased $3.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the same period of 2016 primarily as a result of overall lower origination volumes due to the exit from the reverse mortgage originations business, partially offset by a shift in mix from lower margin new originations to higher margin tails. The decrease in cash generated was offset by a $3.5 million increase in net interest margin. Current quarter revenues also included $7.5 million in net servicing revenue and fees and $0.3 million of other revenues.

    Total expenses for the Reverse Mortgage segment for the first quarter of 2017 were $27.8 million, a decrease of $10.3 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to $6.3 million decrease in general and administrative expenses driven by $1.9 million decrease in curtailment-related accruals, $1.6 million decrease in loss accruals, $1.1 million lower advertising costs, $0.5 million decrease in contractor fees and $4.9 million decrease in salaries and benefits and loan origination expenses due to the exit from the reverse mortgage originations business. Current quarter expenses included $2.4 million of interest expense and $1.1 million of depreciation and amortization.

    The Reverse Mortgage segment reported an Adjusted Loss of $0.9 million and AEBITDA of $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2017, an improvement of $10.4 million and $10.1 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to the decrease in general and administrative expenses and in salaries and benefits, as described above.

    Other Non-Reportable Segment

    The Other Non-Reportable segment reported $34.3 million of pre-tax loss for the first quarter of 2017, an improvement of $9.7 million as compared to the prior year quarter. Other net fair value gains were $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to other net fair value losses of $2.2 million the same period of 2016 primarily related to increases in the forward LIBOR rate impacting the value of the assets and liabilities of the Non-Residual Trusts.

    The Other non-reportable segment had an Adjusted Loss of $32.6 million and AEBITDA of ($0.3) million for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to an Adjusted Loss of $34.9 million and AEBITDA of ($1.7) million in the first quarter of 2016.

    Debt Restructuring Initiative

    In the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company announced it had engaged Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP and Houlihan Lokey to assist in reviewing a number of potential actions that may be taken to reduce the Company's leverage. These efforts have continued in 2017.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    The Company is managed through three reportable segments: Servicing, Originations and Reverse Mortgage. We evaluate 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; goodwill and intangible assets impairment, if any; a portion of the provision for curtailment expense, net of expected third-party recoveries, if applicable; share-based compensation expense or benefit; non-cash interest expense; exit 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 severance; gain or loss on extinguishment of debt; the net impact of the Non-Residual Trusts; transaction and integration costs; and certain non-recurring costs, as applicable. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) excludes unrealized changes in fair value of MSR 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 for the period in which we were originating reverse mortgages. 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.

    We revised our method of calculating Adjusted Earnings (Loss) beginning with the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 to eliminate adjustments for the step-up depreciation and amortization, which represents depreciation and amortization costs related to the increased basis in assets (including servicing rights and subservicing contracts) acquired within business combination transactions. Prior period amounts have been adjusted to reflect this revision.

    Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before income taxes, plus amortization of servicing rights and other fair value adjustments; interest expense on corporate debt; depreciation and amortization; goodwill and intangible assets impairment, if any; a portion of the provision for curtailment expense, net of expected third-party recoveries, if applicable; share-based compensation expense or benefit; exit costs; estimated settlements and costs for certain legal and regulatory matters; fair value to cash adjustments for reverse loans; select other cash and non-cash adjustments, primarily 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; servicing fee economics; and certain non-recurring costs, as applicable. 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 for the period in which the Company was originating reverse mortgages. 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 that 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.
