Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE:NSM), which principally operates
under the Mr. Cooper® and Xome® brands, reported second quarter GAAP net
income of $58 million, or $0.59 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis,
the Company reported earnings for the second quarter of $52 million, or
$0.53 per diluted share.

"Nationstar continues to deliver solid operating results with all
segments experiencing growth. Servicing profitability is improving ahead
of expectations, and significant opportunities exist for further growth.
Originations grew in profitability and volume, and it is focused on
providing solutions for our 3.2 million customers. Xome sales and order
volumes increased with the continued addition of new third-party
clients," said Jay Bray, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We have
received all required approvals for our merger transaction with WMIH and
we expect to close the merger on July 31. We appreciate the support of
our shareholders, the WMIH shareholders and our partners who have
provided these approvals. We look forward to growing our differentiated
platform and building value for our shareholders and customers."


Servicing supports home ownership for our 3.2 million customers and
earns recurring revenues from mortgage servicing rights and
subservicing. The Servicing segment earned $88 million GAAP pretax
income or $72 million adjusted pretax income (5.8 basis points).
Adjusted pretax profitability improved 5% from the prior quarter
primarily due to lower expenses. Expenses improved by $16 million or 9%
quarter-over-quarter as a result of improved efficiencies in the segment.

Nationstar boarded $20 billion UPB, ending the second quarter at $498
billion. An estimated $65 billion UPB, consisting of both mortgage
servicing rights and subservicing, is scheduled to board in the second
half of the year. Nationstar continues to evaluate significant servicing
growth opportunities and expects to end the year with over $530 billion.

Nationstar is targeting adjusted servicing profitability in excess of
6.0 basis points on average for the full year 2018 which will be
propelled by lower prepayment environment, portfolio additions, and
continued cost savings initiatives.
