Other Events.

Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (the “Company”) announced today that it has reached a resolution of certain legacy regulatory matters with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the multi-state committee of mortgage banking regulators and various State Attorneys General, and the Executive Office of the United States Trustee, all of which involve findings from examinations and discussions that were completed in 2014 and 2015, and relate to certain loan servicing practices which occurred during 2010 through 2015.  Subsequent reviews demonstrated that management and the board had taken positive steps to address these issues, that the Company had made significant governance and operational improvements, and that the Company had strengthened internal control systems to ensure that they were appropriate for the size and scope of its operations. The settlements include restitution the Company provided to customers during the last six years.  Additionally, the Company has mutually agreed to a resolution payment in the amount of $28.6 million consisting of remediation, penalties and fees, which the Company will make immediately after the judgment is recorded.   The Company has previously fully accrued for all costs associated with the settlement. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
