14:09 EDTOCNOcwen, Altisource, Home Loan Servicing downgraded by Moody's
Moody's earlier today downgraded the following ratings with a negative outlook: Ocwen Financial (OCN) - Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2; Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility to B3 from B2; Senior Unsecured Debt to Caa1 from B3; Altisource Solutions (ASPS) - Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2; Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility to B3 from B2; Home Loan Servicing Solutions (HLSS) -- Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2; Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility to B3 from B2. The rating agency cited the "continued regulatory scrutiny of Ocwen that could lead to the loss of their license to service loans in California along with the seriously impaired franchise value of the three companies." Moody's attributed its negative outlook to the "uncertain outcome of the California Department of Business Oversight regulatory action and its effects on the Ocwen's ability to operate in California." It added that the downgrades to Home Loan Servicing and Altisource were driven by their businesses' reliance on Ocwen.
