Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE:NSM) (“Nationstar”) announced today
the launch of a new, capital-light servicing acquisition structure. Nationstar
Mortgage LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary, agreed to sell to New Residential
(NYSE:NRZ) and other investors (“NRZ”) servicing advances of $3.2 billion with
potential for up to $6.3 billion. Nationstar agreed to sell the related rights
to mortgage servicing rights (“RMSRs”) of approximately $58 billion of unpaid
principal balance (“UPB”) with potential for up to $130 billion of UPB.

These transactions are the first of a series in Nationstar’s planned strategic
initiative to launch a low-cost, capital-light acquisition structure. These
transactions enable Nationstar to unlock advance equity of $362 million, with
total potential of up to $681 million for redeployment into high return
opportunities. In addition to reducing Nationstar’s advance funding interest
expense, Nationstar has also transferred the obligation to fund the future
servicing advances of the portfolios to NRZ, improving Nationstar’s balance
sheet efficiency.

The total sale price to Nationstar is $3.2 billion, with a total potential of
up to $6.3 billion at substantially the same terms. Nationstar intends to use
the proceeds for general corporate purposes, including new servicing portfolio
acquisitions and potentially retiring corporate debt.

“We are excited for the strategic possibilities this innovative acquisition
structure opens up for Nationstar,” said Nationstar CEO Jay Bray. “For several
quarters, we have been working rigorously to evaluate capital structure
alternatives for acquisitions to unlock Nationstar’s growth potential.
Nationstar is pleased to announce this transformational deal with NRZ and
leading investors, and we look forward to structuring future servicing
portfolio acquisitions with this low-cost, fee-for-service model.”

Nationstar will continue to service the loans in the transaction portfolios.
Nationstar will receive a base servicing fee and will have the ability to earn
additional fees based on the performance of the portfolio. In addition, other
fees in excess of NRZ’s targeted return will be split equally between
Nationstar and NRZ. Nationstar continues to retain all ancillary,
Solutionstar, and originations revenue. The transaction servicing portfolios
consist of non-agency residential mortgage loans.
