The Announcement

Between September 29, 2017, and October 03, 2017, Ocwen entered into additional agreements with New Mexico, Virginia, and West Virginia to resolve the regulatory actions from these states. Under the terms of the agreement, Ocwen will not acquire any new residential mortgage servicing rights until April 30, 2018. The Company will develop a plan of action and milestones concerning its transition from the servicing system to an alternate servicing system that would not board any new loans onto the REALServicing system.

According to the agreement, in the event that the Company chooses to merge with, or acquire an unaffiliated Company or its assets in order to transfer loans from the REALServicing system, Ocwen will be legible to notify the applicable regulatory agency, prior to the signing of any final agreement and the opportunity to object. In the event that an unaffiliated Company merges with, or acquires Ocwen or Ocwen’s assets, the provisions of the agreement would not limit the transfer of loans from the REALServicing system onto the merging or acquiring the Company’s alternative servicing system.

The Company will engage a third-party auditor to perform an analysis concerning the compliance with certain federal and state laws concerning the escrow, by testing about 9,000 loan files relating to loans secured by residential real property in different states. The Company will also develop and submit a plan for review to enhance its consumer complaint handling process.

Company Growth Prospects

The case concerns the February 2015 filing, in which Ocwen received a letter from the New York Regional Office of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), informing that it was conducting an investigation related to the use of collection agents by mortgage loans services. A year later, in February 2016, the Company received another letter stating that the New York Regional Office was conducting another investigation concerning fees and expenses incurred in connection with liquidated loans and REO properties held in non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities trusts.

Recently, on September 28, 2017, Ocwen entered into agreements with 10 states to resolve the regulatory actions brought by these states, and the two additional states that have previously withdrawn or allowed their respective cease and desist orders to expire. Ocwen did not admit or denied liability in the agreements, whereas of October 03, 2017, the total number of states where the Company had reached a resolution is 15.
