  • Reported EPS of $(2.05) per share driven by $(293) million mark-to-market
  • Grew servicing portfolio to $632 billion, up 15% quarter-over-quarter
  • Boarded 444,000 new customers or 13% of the servicing portfolio in 35 days
  • Originations pretax income increased quarter-over-quarter from $11 million to $45 million
  • Pacific Union and Assurant Mortgage Solutions (AMS) integrations on track

Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (NASDAQ: COOP) (the "Company"), which principally operates under the Mr. Cooper® and Xome® brands, reported a first quarter net loss of $(186) million, $(2.05) per diluted share driven principally by a net fair value mark-to-market on the MSR portfolio of $(293) million. Excluding the mark-to-market and other items, the Company reported pretax operating income of $48 million and after-tax operating income of $36 million equivalent to an after-tax ROTCE of 8.7%. Items excluded from operating income were $(293) million in mark-to-market net of $25 million in fair value amortization that is included in the full mark-to-market, $20 million in merger related costs, $20 million in accounting items and $13 million in intangible amortization.

Jay Bray, chairman and CEO, commented, “2019 is a year of integration and investment for Mr. Cooper, designed to set the stage for sustained growth and higher returns in the years to come. Notable achievements in the quarter included boarding 440,000 new servicing customers from our Pacific Union and Seterus acquisitions and making important progress in the integration of Assurant Mortgage Solutions into Xome.”

Vice chairman and CFO Chris Marshall added, “The first quarter included a mark-to-market that was in line with our expectations, while the underlying profitability of the servicing segment was strong, and originations enjoyed a strong rebound in profitability thanks to improved capital markets conditions and two months’ contribution from Pacific Union.”

Servicing

The Servicing segment is focused on providing a best-in-class home loan experience for our 3.8 million customers while also strengthening asset performance for investors. In the first quarter, Servicing recorded a pretax loss of $(186) million principally driven by a net fair value mark-to-market on the MSR portfolio of $(293) million. The change in fair value mark-to-market revenue compared to the prior period was primarily due to a lower interest rate environment. At the end of the quarter, the carrying value of the MSR was approximately $3.5 billion, equivalent to 115 bps of MSR UPB, and the original cost basis was 83 bps. Servicing earned pretax operating income excluding the full mark of $98 million, equivalent to a servicing margin of 6.8 bps. Pretax operating income improved 11% quarter-over-quarter driven by $20 million benefit from a collapse of a securitization trust, lower amortization, net of accretion due to a lower CPR, and lower income contribution from the reverse portfolio in this quarter relative to the prior quarter.

Mr. Cooper ended the quarter with a servicing portfolio of $632 billion UPB, achieving 15% growth quarter-over-quarter. The growth was primarily driven by the Pacific Union and Seterus acquisitions.

Originations

The Originations segment focuses on creating servicing assets at attractive margins through existing customer relationships and correspondent originations. Originations earned pretax income of $45 million in the first quarter, up from $11 million in the prior quarter. The strong results were driven by the lower interest rate environment, resulting in higher locked volumes and favorable capital markets conditions which led to recovery in gain-on-sale margins.

Mr. Cooper funded 27,294 loans in the first quarter, totaling approximately $5.7 billion UPB with $2.2 billion from the direct-to-consumer channel, $3.1 billion from the correspondent channel, and $0.4 billion from the Wholesale channel. Funded volume improved 5% quarter-over-quarter driven by two months of Pacific Union funded volume.

Xome

Xome provides real estate solutions including property disposition, asset management, title, close, valuation, and field services to Mr. Cooper and third-party clients. The Xome segment recorded pretax income of $8 million or $0 million after excluding intangible amortization and an $11 million change in fair value of the contingent consideration for the acquisition of AMS. Excluding the contingent consideration, profitability reflected the impact of the AMS acquisition, which is moving forward according to plan.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company utilizes non-GAAP financial measures as the measures provide additional information to assist investors in understanding and assessing the Company’s and our business segments’ ongoing performance and financial results, as well as assessing our prospects for future performance. The adjusted operating financial measures facilitate a meaningful analysis and allow more accurate comparisons of our ongoing business operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of or are unrelated to the Company’s and our business segments’ core operating performance, and are better measures for assessing trends in our underlying businesses. These notable items are consistent with how management views our businesses. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operational and planning decisions and evaluating the Company’s and our business segment’s ongoing performance. Pretax operating income (loss) in the servicing segment eliminates the effects of mark-to-market adjustments which primarily reflects unrealized gains or losses based on the changes in fair value measurements of MSRs and their related financing liabilities for which a fair value accounting election was made. These adjustments, which can be highly volatile and material due to changes in credit markets, are not necessarily reflective of the gains and losses that will ultimately be realized by the Company. Pretax operating income (loss) in each segment also eliminates, as applicable, transition and integration costs, gains (losses) on sales of fixed assets, certain settlement costs that are not considered normal operational matters, intangible amortization, and other adjustments based on the facts and circumstances that would provide investors a supplemental means for evaluating the Company’s core operating performance.
