Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

 

To the extent required by Item 3.03 of Form 8-K, the information contained in Item 5.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

On August 4, 2020, Ocwen Financial Corporation (the “Company”) filed Articles of Amendment (the “Articles of Amendment”) to the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles of Incorporation”) with the Secretary of State of Florida to effect a one-for-fifteen (1-for-15) reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) and to also reduce the Company’s authorized shares of Common Stock by a factor of fifteen (15). The Articles of Amendment provide that they shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on August 13, 2020 (the “Effective Time”). The Company’s Common Stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange at market open on August 14, 2020 under the new CUSIP number: 675746 606. The trading symbol for the Company’s Common Stock will remain “OCN.”

 

As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, at the Effective Time every fifteen (15) shares of issued Common Stock will be automatically combined and converted into one (1) issued share of Common Stock. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to a fractional share of Common Stock are instead entitled to one (1) whole share in lieu of such fractional share. The Reverse Stock Split does not change the par value of the Common Stock. Upon effectiveness, the number of shares of Common Stock authorized under the Articles of Incorporation will be reduced from 200,000,000 to 13,333,333.

 

The foregoing description of the Reverse Stock Split is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Articles of Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
