SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Origen Financial, Inc. (Pink Sheets: ORGN) ("Origen"), a real estate investment trust that manages residual interests in securitized manufactured housing loan portfolios, today announced a net loss of approximately $3.7 million or $0.14 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, as compared to a net loss of approximately $2.5 million, or $0.10 cents per share, for the second quarter of 2009. For the six months year to date, Origen realized a net loss of approximately $8.0 million, or $0.31 per share, as compared to a net loss of approximately $2.0 million, or $0.08 per share, for the same period in 2009. Origen's Board of Directors did not declare a dividend on its common stock for the second quarter of 2010.
The second quarter 2010 provision for loan losses was approximately $6.1 million versus approximately $5.0 million for the prior year quarter, an increase of 22 percent. Year to date, the loan loss provision totaled approximately $14.0 million as compared to a provision of approximately $9.0 million for the first six months of 2009, an increase of 56 percent. The aging of Origen's static loan portfolio as loans enter the peak years for delinquencies and defaults, as well as overall economic conditions, especially the increased unemployment rate, has increased the level of loan loss reserves needed and has resulted in increased loan loss provisions. Non-interest expenses, including loan servicing fees, totaled $4.1 million for the second quarter 2010 and $8.4 million for the six months year to date, representing decreases of 29 percent and 24 percent, respectively, from the year ago periods.
Net cash flows from operations and the sale of securities enabled Origen to pay down $9.2 million of principal on related party debt during the quarter. Year to date through June 30, 2010, principal pay downs totaled $12.2 million.
Ronald A. Klein, chief executive officer, stated, "Our strong cash flows allowed us to continue to reduce our related party debt during the quarter. Subsequent to quarter end, we paid down an additional $1 million of the debt, and we anticipate liquidating the balance of the debt prior to year end."
