Altisource Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results And That The Company Is Actively Exploring Refinancing Its Existing $480 Million Senior Secured Term Loan

LUXEMBOURG, Feb. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (“Altisource” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ASPS) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2016, reporting strong full year service revenue of $942.6 million. Compared to 2015, 22% service revenue growth from customers other than Ocwen Financial Corporation (“Ocwen”) and higher property preservation services offset the expected loss in revenue from Ocwen’s declining portfolio, lower delinquencies and lower pricing for certain technologies.

Fourth quarter 2016 service revenue of $227.2 million was 5% lower than the third quarter of 2016 from seasonally lower REO sales and lawn maintenance and 9% lower than the fourth quarter of 2015 primarily from lower pricing to Ocwen for certain technologies and a decline in the number of loans on REALServicing.

2016 pretax income of $44.3 million and fourth quarter 2016 pretax loss of $19.5 million were impacted by a litigation settlement loss of $28.0 million, which is net of an anticipated $4.0 million insurance recovery. Further, in the fourth quarter of 2016 and the full year 2016, the Company incurred expenses of $3.9 million and $5.3 million, respectively, relating to severance and the exit from certain facilities.

“In 2016, we continued our transformation from a mortgage services company generating the majority of revenue from Ocwen to a real estate and mortgage marketplace company offering many of the same innovative solutions to a diversified customer base. Because the sales cycle was longer than originally projected, our 22% non-Ocwen service revenue growth and earnings were lower than we anticipated. We are disappointed that we did not achieve our anticipated non-Ocwen revenue growth but the progress made in 2016 positions us for a higher rate of non-Ocwen growth in 2017 and beyond,” said Chief Executive Officer William B. Shepro.

Mr. Shepro further commented, “I firmly believe in the value we’re creating. The market reception for our products and services is very strong, and we are gaining more visibility into our growth prospects. We believe the ongoing investments we are making in our growth will produce a high return on investment and are critical to the franchise we are building.”

  • Sold 2,732 homes, primarily for Altisource Residential Corporation (“RESI”) and, to a lesser extent, for other clients
  • Negotiated a $60 million payment to Altisource, if RESI disposes 50% or more of its single family rental portfolio managed by Altisource, in return for a limited waiver of our exclusive right to provide property management and other services to RESI
  • Launched the buy-renovate-sell program in 2016; acquired 119 homes, 14 of which were sold
  • Received a residential rental property management vendor rating of 2 from Morningstar Credit Ratings in February 2017

While 2016 service revenue was flat compared to 2015, adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource(1) of $117.2 million declined by 24%. This was primarily the result of increased investments to support the Company’s growth initiatives, service revenue mix changes and software price concessions provided to Ocwen. Fourth quarter 2016 adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource(1) of $18.9 million was 36% lower than the third quarter of 2016 from seasonally lower REO sales and lawn maintenance, $3.9 million of costs to exit certain facilities and severance costs related to cost reduction initiatives, and service revenue mix. Fourth quarter 2016 adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource(1) was 53% lower than the fourth quarter of 2015 from lower service revenue, higher investments to support the Company’s growth initiatives and the $3.9 million of costs relating to our cost reduction initiatives.

The Company’s 2016 diluted earnings per share of $1.46 and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) of $4.59 were further impacted by an increase in the 2016 effective income tax rate from 16% in 2015 to 29% in 2016. The effective tax rate increased primarily due to the $28.0 million litigation settlement loss and lower pretax income margins. These items changed the mix of taxable income across the jurisdictions in which the Company operated. Fourth quarter 2016 diluted loss per share of $1.08 and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) of $0.55 were also impacted by an adjustment to increase the effective income tax rate for the first three quarters of 2016 from 20% to 29%. Over the next several years, the Company expects that its effective cash income tax rate will return to a rate that is closer to the Company’s historical rate.

The Company also announced that it is actively exploring refinancing its existing $480 million Senior Secured Term Loan to, among other things, extend the maturity date. There can be no assurance that the Company will complete the refinancing transaction.

Pretax income (loss) attributable to Altisource, adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource, adjusted net income attributable to Altisource and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP measures used by management, existing shareholders, potential shareholders and other users of our financial information to measure Altisource’s performance and do not purport to be alternatives to income (loss) before income taxes and non-controlling interests, net income (loss) attributable to Altisource or diluted earnings (loss) per share as measures of Altisource’s performance. We believe these measures are useful to management, existing shareholders, potential shareholders and other users of our financial information in evaluating operating profitability more on a continuing cost basis as they exclude amortization expense related to acquisitions that occurred in prior periods as well as the effect of more significant non-recurring items from earnings. We believe these measures are also useful in evaluating the effectiveness of our operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance. Furthermore, we believe the exclusion of more significant non-recurring items enables comparability to prior period performance and trend analysis.

It is management’s intent to provide non-GAAP financial information to enhance the understanding of Altisource’s GAAP financial information, and it should be considered by the reader in addition to, but not instead of, the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each non-GAAP financial measure is presented along with the corresponding GAAP measure so as not to imply that more emphasis should be placed on the non-GAAP measure. The non-GAAP financial information presented may be determined or calculated differently by other companies.

Pretax income (loss) attributable to Altisource is calculated by deducting non-controlling interests from income (loss) before income taxes and non-controlling interests. Adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource is calculated by adding intangible asset amortization expense plus litigation settlement loss, net of $4.0 million insurance recovery, plus impairment losses and deducting the gain associated with the reduction of the Equator Earn Out) from pretax income (loss) attributable to Altisource. Adjusted net income attributable to Altisource is calculated by adding intangible asset amortization expense (net of tax) plus litigation settlement loss, net of insurance recovery (net of tax), plus impairment losses (net of tax) and deducting the gain associated with the reduction of the Equator Earn Out (net of tax) from GAAP net income (loss) attributable to Altisource. Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) attributable to Altisource plus intangible asset amortization expense (net of tax), plus litigation settlement loss, net of insurance recovery (net of tax), plus impairment losses (net of tax) less the gain associated with the reduction of the Equator Earn Out (net of tax) by the weighted average number of diluted shares.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are as follows:
