Walter Investment Management Corp. Announces Results for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2012, Guidance for 2013 and Recent Events

TAMPA, Fla., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Walter Investment Management Corp. (NYSE: WAC) ("Walter Investment" or the "Company") today announced highlights and results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

  • The GAAP net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $22.1 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $66.4 million or $2.41 per diluted share for 2011. The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter was $34.1 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.  2012 results were impacted by a charge of $48.6 million, reflecting the loss on the early extinguishment of the Company's debt. 

  • Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $241.7 million, slightly above the high end of the range of previously provided guidance of $225 to $240 million.  This compares to 2011 Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA of $211.0 million, reflecting 15% year-over-year growth, strong earnings from incentives and performance based fees, and growth in the EBITDA contributions from the ARM and Loans and Residuals segments, as well as a solid contribution from the Reverse Mortgage business acquired near the end of the year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $64.1 million, reflecting increased cash flows from the residual trusts and a solid contribution by the Reverse Mortgage business.  This compares to Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA of $55.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

  • Core earnings for the full year doubled to $83.1 million after taxes, or $2.73 per diluted share, as compared to $41.5 million after taxes, or $1.50 per diluted share, for the full year 2011. Core earnings for the fourth quarter was $22.5 million after taxes, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $16.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of last year.  

Recent Developments

  • On December 31, 2012, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Security One Lending ("S1L"), a leading retail and wholesale reverse loan originator based in San Diego, California.  The assets acquired and liabilities assumed in conjunction with this transaction have been included in the Company's consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2012.

  • On January 3, 2013, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire approximately $93 billion in unpaid principal balance ("UPB") of Fannie Mae backed residential servicing assets ("MSRs") and other intangibles, including related advance receivables of approximately $1 billion, from Bank of America ("BofA").   In addition, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire a servicing platform from MetLife Bank.

  • On January 31, 2013, the Company closed an $825 million incremental first lien term loan facility, which was upsized from its original $475 million launch based on significant demand and the company's expectations for its ability to utilize that financing to fund growth opportunities.

  • On January 31, 2013, the Company completed the previously announced acquisitions of the originations and capital markets platforms, as well as the purchases of approximately $44 billion in UPB of Fannie Mae MSRs and other intangibles from Residential Capital, LLC ("ResCap") and $84 billion in UPB of Fannie Mae MSRs and other intangibles from BofA.  Pro-forma for all of the announced acquisitions, the Company's serviced portfolio is estimated at a UPB of $245 billion.

  • On March 1, 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of the correspondent lending and wholesale broker business from Ally Bank, enhancing the channel capabilities of the Originations platform.  The Company also completed the previously announced acquisition of the MetLife Bank servicing platform on this date.

This press release and the accompanying reconciliations include non-GAAP financial measures.  For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures, including the reasons management uses each measure, and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, please see the reconciliations as well as "Use of Non-GAAP Measures" at the end of this press release.  

"We are extremely pleased with the growth and strategic development of our business, as well as our operational accomplishments, in 2012," said Mark J. O'Brien, Walter Investment's Chairman and CEO.  "Our solid execution against our plans is especially evident in the targeted acquisitions of significant Fannie Mae MSRs from ResCap and BofA, our successful efforts in extending our capabilities in the forward market into the reverse sector with the acquisitions of RMS and S1L, and with the very tactical acquisition of the ResCap originations and capital markets platforms, which will diversify our revenue streams and extend the duration of our servicing portfolio through HARP retention and recapture efforts.   We expect each of these acquisitions to contribute to the profitable and sustainable long-term growth of our business and will leverage and enhance the capabilities of our fee-for-service, value–added business model."

"With the closing of the ResCap and BofA purchases, Walter Investment will service a portfolio of nearly 2 million loans with a UPB of roughly $245 billion, concentrated in product backed by our strategic partner, Fannie Mae", continued O'Brien. "The 185% growth in our servicing book as compared to 2011 demonstrates not only our ability to capitalize on the near term opportunities currently available to specialty servicers, but also to do so in a thoughtful and deliberate nature consistent with our strategy and long-term vision for the Company."

Market Commentary and Outlook

In addition to results for the fourth quarter and the full year, the Company also provided additional information on its business development activities and outlook for 2013.

  • The Company's pipeline of business development opportunities continues to include a mix of subservicing, MSR acquisition and servicing platform opportunities and totals in excess of $300 billion in UPB.  Included in this pipeline are portfolios for which we are in exclusive negotiations with a UPB in excess of $40 billion.  Changes in the pipeline reflect the conversion of approximately $20 billion of UPB from the exclusive pipeline in the last 75 days.  Walter Investment continues to expect to convert a high percentage of the transactions in the exclusive pipeline in the near term.  There can be no guarantee, however, that any of the opportunities in our pipeline will result in purchases or contracts added by the Company.

  • Based on continued strong overall market conditions, contributions expected from the transactions completed by the Company last year and in the first quarter of 2013, and the robust pipeline for potential new business, the Company anticipates 2013 Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $650 million to $725 million.

Because we do not predict special items that might occur in the future, and our outlook is developed at a level of detail different than that used to prepare GAAP financial measures, we are not providing a reconciliation to GAAP of our forward-looking financial measures for the year ending December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial and Operating Highlights

The Company's results for all periods presented include the results of Walter Investment, while the results of Reverse Mortgage Solutions ("RMS") have been included for the period subsequent to its acquisition.

The Company's GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter was $34.1 million or $0.98 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $3.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Results for the quarter reflect a charge of $48.6 million related to the loss incurred by the Company on the early extinguishment of its debt.

Core earnings after taxes for the fourth quarter was $22.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $16.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Total accounts serviced were approximately one million with a UPB of $90.1 billion as of December 31, 2012. These amounts do not reflect the acquisitions from ResCap and Bank of America in the first quarter of 2013.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter was $176.4 million, as compared to $155.9 million in the year-ago period.  This year-over-year increase in revenue reflects a $21.5 million increase in servicing revenue and a $2.5 million net increase in other revenues, primarily from the addition of RMS, partially offset by a $3.5 million decline in interest income as compared to the prior year.

Total expense increased from $161.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $188.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  The year-over-year increase reflects the additional operating and overhead costs, including salaries and benefits and general and administrative expenses, of RMS.  Increased expenses also reflected higher legal and due diligence costs associated with increased corporate and business development activities.

Walter Investment ended the quarter with liquidity of $566.8 million, including cash of $442.1 million and availability under our revolver of $124.7 million.  Walter expects to utilize this available cash in the first half of 2013 to fund the purchases and acquisitions noted previously.  Payments of $10.4 million were made to reduce outstanding Company indebtedness during the fourth quarter of 2012.

Segments

The results of the Company's segments are presented in the narrative below.  As a result of the acquisition of RMS a new "Reverse Mortgage" segment has been added.

Servicing

The Servicing segment generated revenue of $102.5 million in the fourth quarter, which included $71.8 million of servicing fees, $19.5 million of incentive and performance-based fees, and $10.8 million of ancillary and other fees.  Expense for the Servicing segment was $90.0 million, which included $20.7 million of depreciation and amortization costs.  The segment generated core earnings before income taxes of $31.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.  This compares to core earnings before income taxes of $27.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Asset Receivables Management ("ARM") and Insurance

The ARM segment generated revenue of $11.3 million and incurred expense of $8.0 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Core earnings before income taxes was $5.4 million.  This compares to revenue of $7.1 million, expense of $6.5 million, and core earnings before income taxes of $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  The year over year increase in core earnings was primarily a result of increased revenues from higher gross collections and a high recovery rate in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Walter Investment's Insurance segment generated revenue of $19.2 million, offset by expenses of $10.4 million for the fourth quarter.  Insurance segment core earnings before income taxes was $10.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.  This compares to revenue of $20.6 million, expense of $12.2 million, and core earnings before income taxes of $10.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Loans and Residuals

The Loans and Residuals segment, which includes the legacy Walter Investment owned portfolio, generated interest income of $36.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, slightly below interest income generated in the fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of anticipated portfolio run-off.  Total expense for the segment was $38.6 million, including $25.9 million of interest expense on securitized debt.  The Loans and Residuals segment generated pre-tax core earnings of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to pre-tax core earnings of $5.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  Pre-tax core earnings declined as compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of lower net interest income and an increase to provision for losses of $2.6 million.

Performance of the Walter Investment legacy portfolio included delinquencies of 6.88% at December 31, 2012, 128 bps higher as compared to those at December 31, 2011, while REO inventory levels declined slightly as compared to the prior year period. 

Reverse Mortgage

The Reverse Mortgage segment generated revenue of $7.0 million for the months of November and December, which included $5.1 million in servicing fees and $1.9 million of net other revenue.  Total expenses were $11.2 million, offset by a $7.3 million other gain from the net impact of HECM loans and GNMA Trust liability fair value adjustments.  Segment core earnings before income taxes was $6.9 million in the fourth quarter.  The Reverse Mortgage segment contributed Adjusted EBITDA of $7.7 million for the last two months of 2012.  Segment core earnings and Adjusted EBITDA for the Reverse Mortgage segment reflect the exclusion of fair value adjustments made in accordance with GAAP and adds as "cash gain" the excess of proceeds received in GNMA financing transactions above the purchase price or cost for the related loans originated or acquired.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting. GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions and in the preparation of financial statements. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures, which it believes are useful to help investors better understand its financial performance, competitive position and prospects for the future.

Core earnings (pre-tax and after-tax), core earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP.  See the Definitions included in this document for a description of how these items are reported and see the Non-GAAP Reconciliations for a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

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. 

Use of Core Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA by Management

The Company manages the business based upon the achievement of core earnings, Adjusted EBITDA and similar targets and has designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of Adjusted EBITDA in order to assess the underlying operational performance of the continuing operations of the business for the year and to have a basis to compare underlying operating results to prior and future periods.

Limitations on the Use of Core Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA

Since core earnings (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings per share measure the Company's financial performance excluding depreciation and amortization costs related to acquisitions, transaction and merger integration-related costs, share-based compensation expense, certain other non-cash adjustments, and the net impact of the consolidated Non-Residual Trust VIEs, they may not reflect all amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA measures the Company's financial performance excluding depreciation and amortization costs, corporate and MSR facility interest expense, transaction and merger integration-related costs, share-based compensation expense, certain other non-cash adjustments, the net impact of the consolidated Non-Residual Trust VIEs and certain other items as defined by our senior secured credit agreement, including, but not limited to pro-forma synergies, they may not reflect all amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Core earnings (pre-tax and after-tax), core earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA involve differences from segment profit (loss), income (loss) before income taxes, net income (loss), basic earnings (loss) per share and diluted earnings (loss) per share computed in accordance with GAAP. Core earnings (pre-tax and after-tax), Core earnings per share  and Adjusted EBITDA should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, segment profit (loss), income (loss) before income taxes, net income (loss), basic earnings (loss) per share and diluted earnings (loss) per share computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance.

Any non-GAAP measures should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP earnings.  Further, the non-GAAP measures presented by Walter Investment may be defined or calculated differently from similarly titled measures of other companies.

Definitions

Core Earnings This disclaimer applies to every usage of Core Earnings and related terms such as Pre Tax Core Earnings, Core Earnings After Taxes and Core Earnings Per Share ("EPS") in this document.  Core Earnings is a metric that is used by management to exclude certain items in an attempt to provide a better earnings per share metric to 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.  Core Earnings excludes depreciation and amortization costs related to business combination transactions, transaction and merger integration-related costs, share-based compensation expense, certain other non-cash adjustments, and the net impact of the consolidated Non-Residual Trust VIEsCore Earnings includes both cash and non-cash gains from forward mortgage origination activities.  Non-cash gains are net of non-cash charges or reserves provided.  Core Earnings excludes the impact of fair value option ("FVO") accounting and includes cash gains for reverse mortgage origination activities.  Core Earnings may also include other adjustments, as applicable based upon facts and circumstances, consistent with the intent of providing investors a means of evaluating our core operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA This disclaimer applies to every usage of Adjusted EBITDA and related terms such as Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA and  Adjusted EBITDA per share in this document.  Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance metric used by management in evaluating the performance of our Company and its segments.  Adjusted EBITDA is generally presented in accordance with its definition in the Company's senior secured credit agreement, with certain exceptions, and represents income before income taxes, depreciation and amortization, interest expense on corporate debt, transaction and integration related costs, the net effect of the non-residual VIEs and certain other non-cash income and expense items. Adjusted EBITDA includes both cash and non-cash gains from forward mortgage origination activities.  Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of fair value option ("FVO") accounting and includes cash gains for reverse mortgage origination activities. Adjusted EBITDA includes an adjustment to reflect pro-forma synergies in 2011 and 2012 and to reflect Green Tree as having been acquired at the beginning of the year for periods prior to the actual acquisition date.  Adjusted EBITDA may also include other adjustments, as applicable based upon facts and circumstances, consistent with the intent of providing investors a means of evaluating our core operating performance. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA used in this document differs from the definition in the Company's senior secured credit agreement principally in that (i) the credit agreements include a pro forma adjustment to the projected EBITDA of acquisitions that were made less than twelve months ago and (ii) the senior secured credit agreement does not include the non-cash gains from forward mortgage origination activities in Adjusted EBITDA.

2013 Estimated Adjusted EBITDA and other amounts or metrics that relate to future earnings projections are forward-looking and subject to significant business, economic, regulatory and competitive uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of Walter Investment and its management, and are based upon assumptions with respect to future decisions, which are subject to change.  Actual results will vary and those variations may be material.  Nothing in this presentation should be regarded as a representation by any person that this target will be achieved and the Company undertakes no duty to update this target.  Please refer to the introductory slides of this presentation, as well as additional disclosures in this Appendix and in our Form 10-K and other filings with the SEC, for important information regarding Forward Looking Statements and the use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.
