Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
In connection with its participation in the Barclays Global Financial Services Conference on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (the “Company”) disclosed updated guidance on 3Q’20 trends, including the following:

Originations segment earnings before taxes are estimated to be approximately $400 million, based on funded volume of $16 billion, pull-through adjusted lock volume of $19 billion, and pretax margins of approximately 2%, reflecting a strong ramp-up in correspondent production

Servicing segment margins are expected to be approximately break-even, as the benefits of a one-time settlement are expected to be offset by higher amortization, with forward owned CPR running above 25% quarter-to-date

Xome is expected to continue to benefit from strong results in Title, with pretax operating profitability consistent with 2Q’20 levels

Through September 6th, the forbearance rate as a percentage of total customers has remained roughly stable

In connection with the Company’s recently announced plans to hire an additional 2,000 new team members by year end, the Company disclosed that as of June 30, 2020 it had 8,672 employees

The information furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor will such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as may be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
