Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

In connection with a series of investor meetings on November 12, 2020, Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (the “Company”) intends to use an investor presentation furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which includes supplemental disclosures about its subsidiary Xome on pages 28 and 29.  Additionally, the Company disclosed an update on 4Q’20 operational trends, including the following:

Correspondent net lock(1) volumes in the month of October were a record $4.6 billion and fundings were a record $3.6 billion.  Correspondent revenue margins as a percentage of net locks declined to 0.66% in October from 0.81% in the third quarter, as the Company brought pricing in line with market to more aggressively grow volumes.
Direct-to-consumer (DTC) net lock(1) volumes in the month of October were $3.2 billion, and fundings were a record $3.5 billion.  DTC revenue margins increased to 5.82% in October from 5.46% in the third quarter, reflecting favorable secondary market conditions.
Purchase refinance mix on funded volume in the month of October was 66% refinance in the Correspondent channel and 98% refinance in the DTC channel
Prepayment speeds have come in higher than expected so far in the fourth quarter, with forward owned CPRs averaging 28% through November 10th, 2020, compared to 25.9% for the third quarter.  As a result, the Company expects the servicing margin to come in at approximately negative 2.3-2.8 basis points for the fourth quarter, compared to negative 0.1 basis points in the third quarter.

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.
