FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ditech Holding Corporation (NYSE: DHCP) today announced net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 of $466.9 million compared to net income of $4.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The current quarter net income included a gain from reorganization and impact of fresh start accounting adjustments of $464.5 million and the prior year quarter net income included a gain on sale of business of $67.7 million.

The current quarter also included changes to MSR comprised of $71.6 million of valuation gains offset by $111.4 million of sales and $27.3 million of portfolio runoff. The Company capitalized $27.5 million of MSR from originations in the current quarter. Comparatively, the prior year quarter included changes to MSR comprised of $17.5 million of valuation losses and $41.0 million of portfolio runoff. The Company capitalized $33.9 million of MSR from originations for the prior year quarter.

Effective April 18, 2018, Thomas F. Marano was appointed Chief Executive Officer and President of Ditech Holding. Mr. Marano also serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ditech Holding. Effective February 9, 2018, Jerry Lombardo was appointed Ditech Holding's Chief Financial Officer, and effective April 23, 2018, Ritesh Chaturbedi was appointed Ditech Holding's Chief Operating Officer. Effective May 8, 2018, Seth L. Bartlett was appointed as Lead Independent Director.

Tom Marano, Chief Executive Officer and President, said "I am pleased with the improving performance of our Servicing business; however, I am disappointed with the performance of the Originations business, which was negatively impacted by interest rates during the first quarter. We are focused on improving our Originations segment and reducing our reliance on refinancing activity. Additionally, we are laser focused on reducing costs across all of our business lines and expanding our purchase money origination volume in an effort to become profitable in 2018."

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2018 were $278.5 million, an increase of $33.2 million as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to an increase of $63.9 million in net servicing revenue and fees partially offset by decreases of $17.9 million in net gains on sale of loans and $7.2 million in interest income. Current year net servicing revenue and fees, excluding MSR impacts of $39.6 million, were $137.4 million. Prior year quarter net servicing revenue and fees, excluding MSR impacts of $(58.6) million, were $171.8 million. This decrease was due to portfolio runoff. The decrease in net gains on sales of loans was primarily due to an overall lower volume of locked loans. This decrease was offset partially by increases due to a shift in mix towards the higher margin consumer channel and lower fall out losses in that channel.

Total expenses for the first quarter of 2018 were $279.4 million, a decrease of $34.3 million as compared to the prior year quarter, resulting from decreases of $26.6 million due to a reduction in legal fees, lower contractor costs, lower default servicing expense including improvements in loss reserves, and accretion recorded in the first quarter of 2018 related to fresh start accounting adjustments for advances. Additionally, salaries and benefits decreased by $20.8 million due primarily to a decrease in compensation and benefits from lower average headcount driven by site closures and organizational changes. These decreases were partially offset by goodwill and intangible asset impairment of $10.0 million recorded during the first quarter of 2018.

Other gains increased $395.1 million primarily due to a gain of $464.5 million resulting from the reorganization that was directly attributable to the Chapter 11 bankruptcy and fresh start accounting adjustments.

The Company is dependent on the ability to secure wholesale market financing from third parties on acceptable terms and to renew, replace or resize existing financing facilities as they expire. Continued growth in Ginnie Mae buyout loan activity in the Reverse Mortgage segment will require us to continue to seek additional financing or to otherwise sell or securitize Ginnie Mae buyout assets.

First Quarter 2018 Segment Results

Results for the Company's segments are presented below. Effective January 1, 2018, the Company no longer allocates corporate overhead, including depreciation and amortization, to its operating segments. These amounts are now included in the Corporate and Other non-reportable segment. Prior year balances have been restated to conform to current year presentation.

Servicing

Our subsidiary, Ditech Financial, serviced 1.5 million accounts with a UPB of $183.7 billion as of March 31, 2018.

The Servicing segment reported pre-tax income of $71.7 million for the first quarter of 2018, an increase of $23.4 million compared to the prior year quarter. During the first quarter of 2018, the segment generated revenue of $202.4 million, an increase of $54.6 million as compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to an increase of $64.9 million in net servicing revenue and fees.

Total expenses in the Servicing segment for the first quarter of 2018 were $116.2 million, a decrease of $49.5 million as compared to the prior year quarter, driven by a $14.3 million decrease in salaries and benefits resulting primarily from a lower average headcount, $7.8 million in lower default servicing expense, $7.1 million in reduced legal fees, $6.1 million in accretion recorded in the first quarter of 2018 related to fresh start accounting adjustments for advances, $2.4 million in lower advance loss provision, and $2.3 million in reduced contractor costs. The prior year quarter included $2.1 million in professional fees related to the sale of substantially all of our insurance agency business in the first quarter of 2017. Current quarter expenses included $12.3 million of interest expense and $4.8 million of depreciation and amortization.

Other gains decreased $80.8 million primarily due to a $67.7 million gain on sale of business recorded in 2017 in connection with the sale of substantially all of our insurance agency business offset by a $14.6 million loss recorded as a result of the fresh start accounting adjustments in the 2018 period.

Pre-tax income increased $23.4 million and adjusted earnings (loss) improved $25.2 million for the first quarter of 2018 as compared to the prior year quarter due to lower general and administrative expenses and salaries and benefits, offset in part by lower servicing revenue and fees of $34.0 million.

Originations

Ditech Financial generated total funded volume of $2.8 billion for the first quarter of 2018, a decrease of $2.2 billion as compared to the prior year quarter. The Originations business delivered a recapture rate of 20% for the current quarter.

The Originations segment reported $3.8 million of pre-tax loss for the first quarter of 2018 as compared to $16.3 million of pre-tax income for the first quarter of 2017, which represents a decrease of $20.1 million. During the first quarter of 2018, this segment generated revenue of $61.3 million, a decrease of $19.5 million from the prior year quarter. Net gains on sales of loans decreased $18.2 million as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to an overall lower volume of locked loans. This decrease was offset partially by increases resulting from a shift in mix towards the higher margin consumer channel.

Total expenses in the Originations segment for the first quarter of 2018 were $74.7 million, an increase of $10.3 million compared to the prior year quarter, due to $9.0 million of goodwill impairment recorded and $4.1 million in higher interest expense driven by debt issuance costs incurred in connection with the DIP Warehouse Facilities, which were amortized over the two-month term of the bankruptcy. These increases were partially offset by a $2.3 million decrease in interest expense due to lower average borrowings and a decrease of $2.8 million in salaries in benefits due primarily to lower commissions and incentives in the Originations segment and a decrease in base compensation from a lower average headcount. Current quarter interest expense was $13.5 million and depreciation and amortization was $3.1 million.

Reverse Mortgage

The Reverse Mortgage segment serviced 102 thousand accounts with a UPB of $19.1 billion at March 31, 2018, which includes UPB of $9.4 billion related to on-balance sheet loans and real estate owned. During the quarter, the business securitized $74.4 million of tails.

The Reverse Mortgage segment reported $12.8 million of pre-tax loss for the first quarter of 2018 as compared to pre-tax loss of $2.0 million in the prior year quarter. During the first quarter of 2018, this segment generated revenue of $18.0 million, a decrease of $4.5 million from the prior year quarter. Net interest income on reverse loans and HMBS related obligations increased $5.7 million primarily due to an increase in buyouts, partially offset by an increase in nonperforming reverse loans, which generally have lower interest rates than performing loans. In addition, we had a $1.5 million decline in servicing revenue and fees and $0.7 million lower amortization of servicing rights.

Total expenses in the Reverse Mortgage segment for the first quarter of 2018 were $38.3 million, an increase of $13.8 million from the prior year quarter. The increase in total expenses was driven by a $15.9 million increase in interest expense on master repurchase agreements as a result of higher buyout loan levels, and a higher average cost of debt including the excess amortization of debt costs of $7.1 million.

Other gains increased $7.4 million due to the fresh start accounting adjustments.

Pre-tax loss increased $10.8 million to $12.8 million and adjusted earnings (loss) declined $3.2 million to $(1.1) million for the first quarter of 2018 as compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to higher interest expense, partially offset by the increase in net fair value gains on reverse loans and related HMBS obligations.

Corporate and Other Non-Reportable Segment

The Corporate and Other Non-Reportable segment reported $411.9 million of pre-tax income for the first quarter of 2018, resulting primarily from a gain on reorganization and fresh start accounting adjustments totaling $462.1 million for the first quarter of 2018.

Interest expense decreased $10.6 million for the first quarter of 2018 as compared to the prior year quarter primarily as a result of the extinguishment of the Senior Notes and Convertible Notes in connection with the Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We manage our company in 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 and Adjusted Earnings (Loss). Management considers Adjusted Earnings (Loss) 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) is a supplemental metric 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) is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP and our use of this measure and term 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 Residual and Non-Residual Trusts, transaction costs, reorganization items 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 periods during 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.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) should not be considered as an alternative 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) has important limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations of this metric are:

  • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) does 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) does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) does not reflect certain tax payments that represent reductions in cash available to us;
  • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) does not reflect non-cash compensation that is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package; and 
  • Adjusted Earnings (Loss) does not reflect the change in fair value due to changes in valuation inputs and other assumptions.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted Earnings (Loss) should not be considered as a measure 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) only as a supplement.
