Walter Investment (WAC) announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire approximately $93B of unpaid principal balance of Fannie Mae backed residential servicing assets, including related advance receivables of approximately $1B, from Bank of America (BAC). The purchase price for the mortgage servicing rights of $519M represents a multiple of approximately 2.05x the 27 basis point base contractual servicing fee of the portfolio. The related advance receivables will be purchased at par. The purchase price will be subject to customary adjustments, including an adjustment to actual UPB as of the January 31, 2013 closing date. The company expects the revenues from these MSRs to drive servicing EBITDA margins within its targeted range of 40% to 45% over the life of the portfolio. The Company expects a servicing EBITDA contribution of between $55M-$60M in 2013, and an average servicing EBITDA contribution of between $70M-$80M per year for the following two years.

08:30 EDTWACLawsky reports a positive for mortgage space, says FBR Capital
FBR Capital views reports of New York Department of Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky’s plans to step down in 2015 as a positive for mortgage servicing space. FBR notes Ocwen Financial (OCN) has been the company under the most scrutiny with Lawsky in charge and that Nationstar Mortgage (NSM)) has also received a letter from the regulator. It also views the reports as a positive for Walter Investment (WAC), which it notes has avoided a targeted communication by Lawsky thus far. FBR thinks a softening of the regulatory environment could allow the big banks to start moving product again.
