  • Tangible book value per share increased to $23.95 from $21.42 in the prior quarter

  • Originations segment generated record pretax income of $438 million on record funded volume of $15.6 billion

  • Xome reported pretax income of $15 million and pretax operating income of $18 million

  • As of October 25th, 2020, 6.1% of customers on forbearance, down from peak of 7.2%

  • Repurchased 1.2 million shares of common stock for $23.3 million

  • Redeemed $950 million of senior notes with $100 million in cash and issued new debt of $850 million at 5.5%

  • Expanded total committed advance financing capacity to $2.0 billion, of which $1.5 billion was unused as of 3Q’20

  • Quarter-end unrestricted cash of $946 million

Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (NASDAQ: COOP) (the "Company"), which principally operates under the Mr. Cooper® and Xome® brands, reported a third quarter net income of $214 million or $2.18 per diluted share. Net income included $53 million in debt refinancing costs related to senior note refinanced in the quarter and a negative $29 million in mark-to-market. Excluding the mark-to-market and other items, the Company reported pretax operating income of $348 million. Items excluded from operating income were negative $29 million in mark-to-market, net of the add back of $25 million in fair value amortization that is included in the full mark-to-market, $53 million in debt breakage, $1 million in severance charges related to corporate actions, and $9 million of intangible amortization.

Chairman and CEO Jay Bray commented, "The strong earnings this quarter, including record origination fundings and a 51% operating ROTCE, are the result of our key strengths - great people, technology development as a core competency, and a business model that balances servicing and originations."

Chris Marshall, Vice Chairman and CFO added, "We continued to strengthen the company’s balance sheet during the quarter, redeeming $100 million in senior notes, refinancing $850 million at a coupon of 5.5%, and extending our liquidity runway to almost 6 years. At the same time, we bolstered our advance funding capacity with a $900 million committed facility for Ginnie Mae MSRs and advances."

Servicing

The Servicing segment is focused on providing a best-in-class home loan experience for our 3.4 million customers while simultaneously strengthening asset performance for investors. In the third quarter, Servicing recorded pretax loss of $32 million, reflecting a negative $29 million in mark-to-market. The total servicing portfolio ended the quarter at $588 billion UPB. Servicing earned pretax operating loss, excluding the full mark, of $2 million, equivalent to a servicing margin of negative 0.1 bps. At quarter end, the carrying value of the MSR was $2,669 million, of which $2,663 million was at fair value equivalent to 100 bps of MSR UPB and original cost basis of 86 bps.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company utilizes non-GAAP financial measures as the measures provide additional information to assist investors in understanding and assessing the Company’s and our business segments’ ongoing performance and financial results, as well as assessing our prospects for future performance. The adjusted operating financial measures facilitate a meaningful analysis and allow more accurate comparisons of our ongoing business operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of or are unrelated to the Company’s and our business segments’ core operating performance, and are better measures for assessing trends in our underlying businesses. These notable items are consistent with how management views our businesses. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operational and planning decisions and evaluating the Company’s and our business segment’s ongoing performance. Pretax operating income (loss) in the servicing segment eliminates the effects of mark-to-market adjustments which primarily reflects unrealized gains or losses based on the changes in fair value measurements of MSRs and their related financing liabilities for which a fair value accounting election was made. These adjustments, which can be highly volatile and material due to changes in credit markets, are not necessarily reflective of the gains and losses that will ultimately be realized by the Company. Pretax operating income (loss) in each segment also eliminates, as applicable, transition and integration costs, gains (losses) on sales of fixed assets, certain settlement costs that are not considered normal operational matters, intangible amortization, and other adjustments based on the facts and circumstances that would provide investors a supplemental means for evaluating the Company’s core operating performance.

Forward Looking Statements

Any statements in this release that are not historical or current facts are forward looking statements. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including the severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic; the pandemic’s impact on the U.S. and global economies; federal, state, and local governmental responses to the pandemic; borrower forbearance rates and availability of financing. Results for any specified quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year or any future period. Certain of these risks and uncertainties are described in the "Risk Factors" section of Mr. Cooper Group’s most recent annual reports and other required documents as filed with the SEC which are available at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. Mr. Cooper undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement or any other financial information contained herein, and the statements made in this press release are current as of the date of this release only.
