Origen Financial Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

May 29, 2014, 16:00 ET from Origen Financial, Inc.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 29, 2014 /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 $97,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, as compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.07 per share of common stock outstanding for the first quarter of 2013. On May 27, 2014, Origen's Board of Directors declared a dividend on common stock of $0.08 per share to be paid to holders of Origen's common stock of record on June 12, 2014.  The dividend will be paid on June 20, 2014 and will approximate $2.1 million.

Net interest income before loan losses and impairment decreased by approximately 7.5 percent for the first quarter 2014 to $3.7 million as compared to $4.0 million for the first quarter 2013.  Such decrease is the result of the continued runoff of the Company's securitized loan portfolio and the corresponding reduction in bonds payable. The first quarter 2014 provision for loan losses was $1.7 million versus $3.3 million for the prior year quarter, a decrease of approximately 48 percent. The decrease is the result of declining loan balances, as well as improvements in delinquency levels and increased recovery percentages on the dispositions of foreclosures and repossessions. 

Non-interest expenses, including $1.5 million of loan servicing expense, were $2.4 million for the first quarter 2014, as compared to $2.6 million, including $1.8 million of loan servicing expense, for the year ago quarter, a decrease of approximately 8 percent.
