* Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures for all periods presented reflect the continuing operations of the Company and exclude the results of the Fleet business and amounts related to the disposition of the business.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax), core earnings or loss (after-tax), core earnings or loss per share, adjusted cash flow, tangible book value and tangible book value per share are financial measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). See the “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for a detailed description of these and certain other Non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of such Non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as required by Regulation G.

** Pro Forma Measures

As previously reported on our July 7, 2014 Form 8-K, we completed the sale of our Fleet business effective on July 1, 2014. Pro forma book value per share is a pro forma measure included in this press release that reflects our estimate of our financial position as of June 30, 2014 after the disposition of the Fleet Business, adjusted for our estimates of the disposition as if it had occurred on March 31, 2014. Pro forma estimates that were used to adjust book value per share include the estimated gain on sale. The actual gain on the sale of the Fleet business may vary from our estimate based upon final determination and settlement of post-closing adjustments.

Mortgage Production

Mortgage Production Segment Loss

Mortgage Production segment loss in the second quarter of 2014 was $27 million, compared to a segment loss of $60 million in the first quarter of 2014 and a segment profit of $44 million in the second quarter of 2013. The lower segment loss during the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 was primarily due to a 26% increase in total closings, which drove greater Mortgage fees, and an 18% increase in IRLCs expected to close, partially offset by an 18 bps decline in total loan margin, which drove an increase in Gain on mortgage loans, net.

Mortgage Closing Volume

Total second quarter 2014 mortgage closings were $9.3 billion, up 26% from the first quarter of 2014 and down 37% from the second quarter of 2013. Retail closings increased 29% from the first quarter of 2014 but declined 33% compared to the second quarter of 2013. Retail closings increased to 97% of total closings in the second quarter of 2014 from 94% in the first quarter of 2014, reflecting our continued emphasis on our retail channels. Fee-based closings represented 65% of total closings in the second quarter of 2014, consistent with the first quarter of 2014 and up from 47% of total closings in the second quarter of 2013. The increased mix of fee-based closings continues to adversely affect the profitability of our Mortgage Production segment as the revenue per loan on fee-based closings is generally lower than the revenue per loan on saleable closings.

Interest Rate Lock Commitments

IRLCs expected to close of $2.1 billion in the second quarter of 2014 increased 18% from the first quarter of 2014, driven by a 46% increase in retail purchase IRLCs expected to close. IRLCs expected to close declined 62% from the second quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting declining demand for refinancings and a shift in mix toward fee-based production.

Total Loan Margin

Total loan margin on IRLCs expected to close for the second quarter of 2014 was 273 bps, an 18 bps decrease from the first quarter of 2014 and 75 bps less than the second quarter of 2013. Margins continued their downward trend in the second quarter of 2014, reflecting declines in industry origination volumes, especially refinancing volumes. Margins generally have widened when mortgage interest rates decline and tighten when mortgage interest rates increase, as loan originators attempt to balance origination volume with operational capacity; however in the first half of 2014, mortgage interest rates have declined, industry volumes have declined, and margins have tightened.

Mortgage Servicing

Mortgage Servicing Segment Profit

Mortgage Servicing segment profit in the second quarter of 2014 was $10 million, compared to a segment loss of $29 million in the first quarter of 2014 and a segment profit of $81 million in the second quarter of 2013. The second quarter of 2014 segment profit included a $12 million unfavorable market-related fair value adjustment to our mortgage servicing rights (MSR), as mortgage interest rates declined in the quarter, and a $20 million net derivative gain related to MSRs. This compares to a $155 million favorable market-related fair value adjustment to our MSR and a $1 million net derivative loss related to MSRs in the second quarter of 2013. The reduction in MSR value for prepayments and recurring cash flows was $40 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $34 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $80 million in the second quarter of 2013. The lower fair value adjustment for prepayments and recurring cash flows for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013 reflects lower prepayments in our capitalized portfolio.

Unpaid Principal Balance (UPB) of Mortgage Servicing Portfolio

At June 30, 2014, the UPB of our capitalized servicing portfolio was $124.0 billion, down 3% from March 31, 2014, and 7% from June 30, 2013. Although prepayments have declined over the past four quarters, they continue to exceed additions from new loan production.

At June 30, 2014, the UPB of our total loan servicing portfolio was $225.9 billion, representing a slight increase from March 31, 2014, and a 1% decrease from June 30, 2013. The 1% year-over-year decrease in our total loan servicing portfolio primarily reflects the aforementioned decline in the UPB of our capitalized servicing portfolio, partially offset by an increase in sub-servicing UPB.

Mortgage Servicing Rights

At June 30, 2014, the book value of our MSR was $1.2 billion, representing a 96 bps capitalized servicing rate. The MSR book value and capitalized servicing rate at March 31, 2014, was also $1.2 billion and 96 bps of the capitalized loan servicing portfolio. The MSR book value at June 30, 2013, was $1.2 billion, representing a 94 bps capitalized servicing rate. During the second quarter of 2014, $21 million in MSR book value was added from loans sold, which was more than offset by a $12 million decrease in MSR book value due to market-related fair value adjustments, a $40 million decrease in MSR book value related to prepayments and the receipt of recurring cash flows, and a $6 million decrease in MSR book value from MSR sales.

Repurchase and Foreclosure-related Charges

We recorded a $1 million repurchase and foreclosure-related reserve release during the second quarter of 2014 as we continued to experience a downward trend in new repurchase requests for more recent origination years (2009 to 2012). In the first quarter of 2014, additions to the repurchase and foreclosure-related reserve were solely attributable to new loan sales, and we did not record any repurchase and foreclosure-related charges. In the second quarter of 2013, repurchase and foreclosure-related charges were $11 million. Total repurchase and foreclosure-related reserves were $110 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014, compared to $120 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. As of June 30, 2014, the estimated amount of reasonably possible losses associated with loan repurchases and indemnifications in excess of total repurchase and foreclosure-related reserves was $25 million, unchanged from the end of 2013, which relates to our estimate of foreclosure-related charges that may not be reimbursed pursuant to government mortgage insurance programs in the event we do not file insurance claims.

Liquidity Update

Liquidity at June 30, 2014, included $964 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, which does not include $274 million in cash related to the Fleet business that is included in Assets held for sale.

As of June 30, 2014, we had no outstanding balances on our unsecured revolving credit facilities. On July 7, 2014, in order to facilitate the sale of our Fleet business, we terminated our unsecured revolving credit facilities.

* NOTE REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures for all periods presented reflect the continuing operations of the Company and exclude the results of the Fleet business and amounts related to the disposition of the business.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax), core earnings or loss per share, adjusted cash flow, tangible book value and tangible book value per share are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. See Non-GAAP Reconciliations below for a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as required by Regulation G.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share involves differences from Segment profit or loss, Income or loss from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income or loss attributable to PHH Corporation and Basic earnings or loss per share attributable to PHH Corporation computed in accordance with GAAP. Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Segment profit or loss, Income or loss from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income (loss) attributable to PHH Corporation or Basic earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s financial performance.

Adjusted cash flow excludes the change in the Cash balance of discontinued operations and involves differences from Net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents computed in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted cash flow should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents.

Tangible book value and tangible book value per share involve differences from Total PHH Corporation stockholders’ equity computed in accordance with GAAP. Tangible book value and tangible book value per share should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Total PHH Corporation stockholders’ equity computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s financial position.

The Company believes that these Non-GAAP Financial Measures can be useful to investors because they provide a means by which investors can evaluate the Company’s underlying key drivers and operating performance of the business, exclusive of certain adjustments and activities that investors may consider to be unrelated to the underlying economic performance of the business for a given period.

The Company also believes that any meaningful analysis of the Company’s financial performance by investors requires an understanding of the factors that drive the Company’s underlying operating performance which can be obscured by significant unrealized changes in value of the Company’s mortgage servicing rights, as well as any gain or loss on derivatives that are intended to offset market-related fair value adjustments on the Company’s mortgage servicing rights, in a given period that are included in Segment profit (loss), Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income (loss) attributable to PHH Corporation and Basic earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations attributable to PHH Corporation in accordance with GAAP.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share measure the Company’s financial performance from continuing operations excluding unrealized changes in fair value of the Company’s mortgage servicing rights that are based upon projections of expected future cash flows and prepayments as well as realized and unrealized changes in the fair value of derivatives that are intended to offset changes in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights. The changes in fair value of mortgage servicing rights and related derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in interest rates and are dependent upon the level of current and projected interest rates at the end of each reporting period.

Value lost from actual prepayments and recurring cash flows are recorded when actual cash payments or prepayments of the underlying loans are received, and are included in core earnings based on the current fair value of the mortgage servicing rights at the time the payments are received.

The presentation of core earnings is designed to more closely align the timing of recognizing the actual value lost from prepayments in the mortgage servicing segment with the associated value created through new originations in the mortgage production segment.

Core earnings metrics are used in managing the Company’s business. The Company has also designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of core earnings targets, subject to potential adjustments that may be made at the discretion of the Human Capital and Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.

Limitations on the use of Core Earnings

Since core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share measure the Company’s financial performance from continuing operations excluding unrealized changes in value of mortgage servicing rights, such measures may not appropriately reflect the rate of value lost on subsequent actual payments or prepayments over time. As such, core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share may tend to overstate operating results in a declining interest rate environment and understate operating results in a rising interest rate environment, absent the effect of any offsetting gains or losses on derivatives that are intended to offset changes in fair value on the Company’s mortgage servicing rights.

Adjusted cash flow

Adjusted cash flow excludes the change in the Cash balance of discontinued operations and measures the Company’s Net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents from continuing operations for a given period excluding changes resulting from the issuance of equity, the purchase of derivative securities related to the Company’s stock or the issuance or repayment of unsecured or other debt by PHH Corporation. The Company believes that Adjusted cash flow is a useful measure for investors because the Company’s ability to repay future unsecured debt maturities or return capital to equity holders is highly dependent on a demonstrated ability to generate cash. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted cash flow may assist investors in determining the amount of cash and cash equivalents generated from business activities during a period that is available to repay unsecured debt or distribute to holders of the Company’s equity.

Adjusted cash flow can be generated through a combination of earnings, more efficient utilization of asset-backed funding facilities, or an improved working capital position. Adjusted cash flow can vary significantly between periods based upon a variety of potential factors including, but not limited to, timing related to cash collateral postings, mortgage origination volumes and loan margins.

Adjusted cash flow is not a substitute for the Net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents for a period and is not intended to provide the Company’s total sources and uses of cash or measure its change in liquidity. As such, it is important that investors review the Company’s consolidated statement of cash flows for a more detailed understanding of the drivers of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, investing activities, and financing activities.

Adjusted cash flow metrics are used in managing the Company’s business. The Company has also designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of adjusted cash flow targets, subject to potential adjustments that may be made at the discretion of the Human Capital and Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.

Tangible book value and Tangible book value per share

Tangible book value is a measure of Total PHH Corporation stockholders’ equity computed in accordance with GAAP excluding the value of goodwill and other intangible assets. Tangible book value per share is a measure of tangible book value, on a per share basis, using the number of shares of outstanding PHH Corporation common stock as of the applicable measurement date. Certain of the Company’s debt agreements contain indebtedness-to-tangible net worth ratio covenants, and such ratios are calculated using a measure of tangible net worth that is calculated on a basis similar to the Company’s calculation of tangible book value. Accordingly, the Company believes that tangible book value and tangible book value per share provide useful supplementary information to investors.
