Origen Financial Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Origen Financial, Inc. (Pink Sheets: ORGN) ("Origen" or the "Company"), a real estate investment trust that manages residual interests in securitized manufactured housing loan portfolios, today announced a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.07 per common share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, as compared to net income, as restated, of $3.9 million, or $0.15 per common share for the first quarter of 2012.  The first quarter 2012 net income was the result of the termination of interest rate swap transactions which resulted in gains of approximately $6.2 million.  Absent such gains, Origen's first quarter 2012 results would have reflected a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.09 per common share.

On May 14, 2013, Origen's Board of Directors declared a common stock dividend of $0.09 per share to be paid to holders of Origen's common stock of record on May 27, 2013.  The dividend will be paid on June 3, 2013 and will approximate $2.3 million. The cash dividend will represent a return of capital.

For the first quarter 2013, net interest income before loan losses and impairment decreased by approximately 15 percent to $4.0 million from $4.7 million for the first quarter 2012.  Non-interest income for the first quarter 2013 totaled $133,000 versus $7.3 million for first quarter 2012 reflecting the prior year gain on termination of interest rate swap transactions. The first quarter 2013 provision for loan losses was $3.3 million versus $5.2 million for the prior year quarter, a decrease of approximately 37 percent.  The decrease in provision for loan losses reflects the declining balances of the Company's static loan portfolio and improvements in recoveries on dispositions of foreclosed and repossessed properties.

Non-interest expenses, including $1.8 million of loan servicing expenses, were $2.6 million for the first quarter 2013, as compared to $2.9 million, including $2.1 million of loan servicing expense, for the year ago quarter, a decrease of approximately 10 percent.  Loan servicing expenses constituted approximately 69 percent and 72 percent of total non-interest expenses, respectively, for first quarter 2013 and 2012.
