Altisource Announces Second Quarter Financial Results and Attractive Client Wins

Share:

LUXEMBOURG, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. ("Altisource" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:ASPS) today reported financial results for the second quarter 2018.

Second quarter service revenue of $208.9 million increased by 11% compared to the first quarter of 2018, driven by growth in the buy-renovate-lease-sell, Hubzu® and property preservation and inspection businesses.  Second quarter 2018 service revenue was 12% lower than the second quarter of 2017 primarily from the reduction in size of the Ocwen Financial Corporation ("Ocwen") servicing portfolio resulting from loan repayments, loan modifications, short sales, REO sales and other forms of resolution and Front Yard Residential Corporation's ("RESI") smaller portfolio of non-performing loans and REO. These declines were partially offset by non-Ocwen service revenue growth in the buy-renovate-lease-sell, property preservation and inspection, renovation management and Owners.com® businesses.

Second quarter 2018 diluted earnings per share was $0.09 and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) was $0.60, compared to first quarter 2018 diluted loss per share of $(0.24) and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) of $0.48.  Second quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share was higher than the first quarter of 2018 from higher service revenue, partially offset by higher interest expense.  Second quarter 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share was 35% lower than the second quarter of 2017 primarily from higher interest expense and lower service revenue in 2018 and a gain on debt repurchase in 2017.

Second quarter 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) excludes $4.4 million of pretax loss related to the April 3, 2018 debt refinancing ($0 in the second quarter 2017) and mark-to-market pretax gain of approximately $1.5 million from our investment in RESI shares (not included in the determination of net income in 2017).

"I'm pleased with our second quarter financial performance.  Compared to the mid-point of our full year 2018 scenarios, adjusted diluted earnings per share for the first half of 2018 is 53% of the mid-point," said Chief Executive Officer William B. Shepro.

Mr. Shepro further commented, "More importantly, we are making excellent progress on the sales front as our industry consolidates to high performing vendors.  We believe our recent wins with some of the largest financial institutions in the mortgage industry and the progress we are making onboarding these customers will provide strong diversified revenue growth."

Pretax income (loss) attributable to Altisource, adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource, adjusted net income attributable to Altisource, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted cash flows from operating activities, adjusted cash flows from operating activities less additions to premises and equipment and net debt less marketable securities, which are presented elsewhere in this earnings release, 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, diluted earnings (loss) per share, cash flows from operating activities and long-term debt, including current portion, 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 and cash flow generation more on the basis of continuing cost and cash flows as they exclude amortization expense related to acquisitions that occurred in prior periods and non-cash share-based compensation, as well as the effect of more significant non-recurring items from earnings, cash flows from operating activities and long-term debt net of cash on-hand and marketable securities.  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.  The non-GAAP financial information should not be unduly relied upon.

Pretax income (loss) attributable to Altisource is calculated by removing non-controlling interests from income (loss) before income taxes and non-controlling interests.  Adjusted pretax income attributable to Altisource is calculated by removing intangible asset amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, unrealized gain (loss) on investment in equity securities, the write-off of net discount and debt issuance costs from debt refinancing and non-controlling interests from income (loss) before income taxes and non-controlling interests.  Adjusted net income attributable to Altisource is calculated by removing intangible asset amortization expense (net of tax), share-based compensation (net of tax), the write-off of net discount and debt issuance costs from debt refinancing (net of tax) and unrealized gain (loss) on investment in equity securities (net of tax) from net income (loss) attributable to Altisource.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to Altisource after removing intangible asset amortization expense (net of tax), share-based compensation (net of tax), the write-off of net discount and debt issuance costs from debt refinancing (net of tax) and unrealized gain (loss) on investment in equity securities (net of tax) by the weighted average number of diluted shares.  Adjusted cash flows from operating activities is calculated by removing the cash payment related to the net litigation settlement loss and the increase (decrease) in short-term investments in real estate from cash flows from operating activities.  Adjusted cash flows from operating activities less additions to premises and equipment is calculated by removing the cash payment related to the net litigation settlement loss, the increase (decrease) in short-term investments in real estate and additions to premises and equipment from cash flows from operating activities.  Net debt less marketable securities is calculated as long-term debt, including current portion, minus cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities.
