PHH Corporation Announces First Quarter 2012 Results16:15 EDT Tuesday, May 01, 2012 MT. LAUREL, N.J. (Business Wire) -- PHH Corporation (NYSE: PHH) (“PHH” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the Company reported net income attributable to PHH Corporation of $75 million or $1.32 per share. Core earnings (after-tax)* and core earnings per share* for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, were $53 million and $0.93, respectively. “We had a solid quarter, and we are making progress against our four key strategies,” said Glen A. Messina, president and CEO of PHH Corporation. “The mortgage originations environment remains favorable with low mortgage interest rates and priced-in margins the widest we have seen in some time. Volumes in our retail mortgage origination channels remained at robust levels, while our Fleet business continued its solid, double-digit growth. We have more than doubled our unrestricted cash balance since year-end and have significantly improved our liquidity position. In April, we retired our 2012 unsecured debt maturities, and we believe that the execution of our liquidity and capital plan will provide sufficient liquidity to meet our debt service obligations, fund potential increases in repurchase and indemnification requests and operate our businesses.” Messina added, “I continue to see significant opportunity at PHH to create value for our shareholders. We believe our reported results do not reflect fully the underlying strength of our businesses. We experienced an increase in our foreclosure-related charges as a result of a significant uptick in mortgage repurchase demands, primarily from the GSEs. We believe our focus on operational excellence should reduce defects and minimize our exposure to this risk in future years. We have identified opportunities and are developing initiatives to improve our operational effectiveness and profitability.” Liquidity and Capital Raising Update Liquidity at March 31, 2012, included: $875 million in unrestricted cash and equivalents $509 million in availability under unsecured revolving credit facility During the first quarter, the Company issued $250 million of 6% convertible senior notes due 2017 and repurchased $51 million in face value of its 4% convertible notes due 2012. On April 16, 2012, the Company repaid the $199 million remaining outstanding principal balance of the 4% convertible notes due 2012. Unrestricted cash and equivalents at the end of the first quarter, pro forma for the retirement of the 4% convertible notes due 2012, was $676 million. Fannie Mae Early Funding Facility The Company also today announced that PHH Mortgage Corporation, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, renewed its master agreement with Fannie Mae and entered into certain other amendments to its agreements with Fannie Mae, including an amendment to its $1 billion committed early funding letter agreement. For additional information concerning the terms of the amendment to the committed early funding letter agreement, please refer to the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which are available in the Investors section of the Company's website at www.phh.com and are also available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.   Summary Consolidated Results(In millions, except per share data)     Three Months EndedMarch 31,20122011 Net revenues $ 777 $ 665 Income before income taxes 124 85 Net income attributable to PHH Corporation 75 49   Basic earnings per share attributable to PHH Corporation $ 1.32 $ 0.87   Non-GAAP Results* Core earnings (pre-tax) $ 76 $ 57 Core earnings (after-tax) 53 34   Core earnings per share $ 0.93 $ 0.61   Adjusted cash flow $ 269 $ 123   * Non-GAAP Financial Measures Core earnings (after-tax), core earnings (pre-tax), core earnings per share, adjusted cash flow, tangible book value and tangible book value per share are financial measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

The fair value of our MSRs is estimated based upon projections of expected future cash flows from our MSRs considering prepayment estimates, our historical prepayment rates, portfolio characteristics, interest rates based on interest rate yield curves, implied volatility and other economic factors.   Mortgage Production and Mortgage ServicingMortgage Production Segment Profit Mortgage Production segment profit in the first quarter 2012 was $117 million, 125% greater than the first quarter of 2011 and up 36% from $86 million in the fourth quarter 2011. First quarter segment profit reflects a strong level of IRLCs expected to close from the continuation of high refinance originations that began in the third quarter 2011 and strong gain on sale margins. First quarter 2011 Mortgage Production segment profit of $52 million reflects a $68 million gain on the sale of 50.1% of the equity interests in Speedy Title and Appraisal Review Services (STARS), our appraisal services business. Mortgage Servicing Segment Loss Mortgage Servicing segment loss in the first quarter 2012 was $26 million. The segment loss was driven by two key factors: an aggregate $26 million in negative changes in the fair value of our MSR and related derivates and $65 million in foreclosure-related charges. The changes in the fair value of our MSR and related derivates includes $64 million in prepayments and receipts of recurring cash flows and $5 million in net derivative losses offset by $43 million in market-related fair value adjustments on our mortgage servicing rights, primarily attributable to an increase in mortgage interest rates. Significantly greater foreclosure-related charges in the first quarter 2012 were reflective of a significant increase in repurchase requests, primarily from the GSEs. We expect repurchase requests and foreclosure costs to remain high during 2012 and potentially into 2013. Interest Rate Lock Commitments IRLCs expected to close of $6.9 billion in the first quarter 2012 represented a 36% increase from the first quarter 2011, reflecting the continuation of the high level of refinancing originations that began in the third quarter 2011. The sequential decline in IRLCs is primarily due to the intended reduction in origination volume in our correspondent channel. Total Priced-in Margins In the first quarter 2012, total priced-in margin on IRLCs expected to close continued its increasing trend and remained at an elevated level. Total priced-in margin increased 78 basis points from the fourth quarter 2011 and was 117 basis points greater than the first quarter 2011. These margins reflect continuing high levels of refinancing activity. Although we expect priced-in margins to eventually decline from current levels, we believe these margins could remain elevated throughout 2012, reflecting a longer term industry view of the returns required to manage the underlying risk of mortgage production and servicing. Mortgage Closing Volume Total first quarter 2012 mortgage closings were $14.0 billion of which 68% was retail and 32% was wholesale/correspondent. This volume represents an 11% decrease from the fourth quarter 2011, reflecting the decrease in IRLCs expected to close in the fourth quarter 2011 compared to the third quarter 2011. Mortgage closings are likely to decline again in the second quarter 2012 as a result of the sequential quarter decline in IRLCs expected to close in the first quarter 2012. Unpaid Principal Balance of Mortgage Servicing Portfolio At March 31, 2012, the UPB of our capitalized servicing portfolio was $149.7 billion, a 6% increase over the UPB at March 31, 2011 and a 2% increase over the UPB at the end of 2011. At March 31, 2012, the UPB of our total loan servicing portfolio was $184.9 billion, an 8% increase over the UPB at March 31, 2011 and a 1% increase over the UPB at the end of 2011. Mortgage Servicing Rights At March 31, 2012, the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights was $1.3 billion, an increase of 7% from the balance at the end of 2011. This change reflects $108 million in MSR added from the capitalization of new servicing rights, reflecting loans sold in the quarter, and $43 million in market-related fair value adjustments, partially offset by $64 million in negative fair value adjustments related to prepayments and the receipt of recurring cash flows. Foreclosure-related Charges Foreclosure-related charges in the first quarter 2012 were $65 million, a substantial increase from $15 million in the first quarter 2011 and a quarterly average of $20 million over the course of 2011, as a result of a significant uptick in repurchase demands, primarily from the GSEs. Total foreclosure-related reserves were $165 million at quarter-end, which reflects the losses the Company believes are probable. As of March 31, 2012, the estimated amount of reasonably possible losses in excess of the recorded liability was $140 million. This estimate assumes that repurchases and indemnifications remain at an elevated level through the year ended December 31, 2013, our success rate in defending against requests declines and loss severities remain at current levels. Our estimate of reasonably possible losses does not represent probable losses and is based upon significant judgments and assumptions which can be influenced by many factors, including: (i) home prices and the levels of home equity; (ii) the criteria used by investors in selecting loans to request: (iii) borrower delinquency patterns; and (iv) general economic conditions. Actual losses incurred in connection with loan repurchases and indemnifications could vary significantly from and exceed the recorded liability. We may also be required to increase our loan repurchase and indemnification liability in the future. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that actual losses or estimates of reasonably possible losses associated with loan repurchases and indemnifications will not be in excess of the recorded liability or that we will not be required to increase the recorded liability in the future. Other Mortgage Servicing Expenses Other expenses in our Mortgage Servicing segment increased by $13 million, primarily attributable to increases in expenses associated with servicing delinquent and foreclosed loans and real estate owned, including provisions for compensatory fees and litigation costs related to foreclosure processing. Fleet Management ServicesSegment Profit Fleet Management Services segment profit was $24 million in the first quarter 2012, up 50% from the first quarter 2011, reflecting stronger net revenues, primarily from growth in fleet management fees, as well as lower funding costs. First quarter 2012 segment profit was $5 million greater than in the fourth quarter 2011. Fleet Lease Income Fleet lease income declined slightly in the first quarter 2012 compared to the first quarter 2011, due to a 3% decline in the average number of leased vehicles, partially offset by an increase in net investment in leases, reflecting the growth in average lease balances. Fleet Management Fees Fleet management fees increased to $47 million in the first quarter 2012 from $42 million in the first quarter 2011, reflecting an increase in fee-for-service average unit counts. Maintenance service, fuel, and accident management average units all increased in the first quarter 2012 compared to first quarter 2011 despite a 3% decline in the number of leased vehicles, reflecting our strategy to increase penetration of our accounts with fee-based services.

Adjusted cash flow involves differences from Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents computed in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted cash flow should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents. Tangible book value and tangible book value per share involve differences from Total PHH Corporation stockholders' equity computed in accordance with GAAP. Tangible book value and tangible book value per share should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Total PHH Corporation stockholders' equity computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial position. The Company believes that these Non-GAAP Financial Measures can be useful to investors because they provide a means by which investors can evaluate the Company's underlying key drivers and operating performance of the business, exclusive of certain adjustments and activities that investors may consider to be unrelated to the underlying economic performance of the business for a given period. The Company also believes that any meaningful analysis of the Company's financial performance by investors requires an understanding of the factors that drive the Company's underlying operating performance which can be obscured by significant unrealized changes in value of the Company's mortgage servicing rights, as well as any gain or loss on derivatives that are intended to offset market-related fair value adjustments on the Company's mortgage servicing rights, in a given period that are included in Segment profit (loss), Income (loss) before income taxes, Net income (loss) attributable to PHH Corporation and Basic earnings (loss) per share attributable to PHH Corporation in accordance with GAAP. Core earnings (loss) (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings (loss) per share Core earnings (loss) (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings (loss) per share measure the Company's financial performance excluding unrealized changes in fair value of the Company's mortgage servicing rights that are based upon projections of expected future cash flows and prepayments as well as realized and unrealized changes in the fair value of derivatives that are intended to offset changes in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights. The changes in fair value of mortgage servicing rights and related derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in interest rates and are dependent upon the level of current and projected interest rates at the end of each reporting period. Value lost from actual prepayments and recurring cash flows are recorded when actual cash payments or prepayments of the underlying loans are received, and are included in core earnings based on the current fair value of the mortgage servicing rights at the time the payments are received. The presentation of core earnings is designed to more closely align the timing of recognizing the actual value lost from prepayments in the mortgage servicing segment with the associated value created through new originations in the mortgage production segment. The Company believes that it will likely replenish most, if not all, realized value lost from changes in value from actual prepayments through new loan originations and actively manages and monitors economic replenishment rates to measure its ability to continue to do so. Therefore, management does not believe the unrealized change in value of the mortgage servicing rights is representative of the economic change in value of the business as a whole. Core earnings metrics are used in managing the Company's mortgage business. The Company has also designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of core earnings targets, subject to potential adjustments that may be made at the discretion of the Human Capital and Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors. Limitations on the use of Core Earnings Since core earnings (loss) (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings (loss) per share measure the Company's financial performance excluding unrealized changes in value of mortgage servicing rights, such measures may not appropriately reflect the rate of value lost on subsequent actual payments or prepayments over time. As such, core earnings (loss) (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings (loss) per share may tend to overstate operating results in a declining interest rate environment and understate operating results in a rising interest rate environment, absent the effect of any offsetting gains or losses on derivatives that are intended to offset changes in fair value on the Company's mortgage servicing rights. Adjusted cash flow Adjusted cash flow measures the Company's Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents for a given period excluding changes resulting from the issuance of equity, the purchase of derivative securities related to the Company's stock or the issuance or repayment of unsecured or other debt by PHH Corporation. The Company believes that Adjusted cash flow is a useful measure for investors because the Company's ability to repay future unsecured debt maturities or return capital to equity holders is highly dependent on a demonstrated ability to generate cash. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted cash flow may assist investors in determining the amount of cash and cash equivalents generated from business activities during a period that is available to repay unsecured debt or distribute to holders of the Company's equity. Adjusted cash flow can be generated through a combination of earnings, more efficient utilization of asset-backed funding facilities, or an improved working capital position. Adjusted cash flow can vary significantly between periods based upon a variety of potential factors including, but not limited to, timing related to cash collateral postings, mortgage origination volumes and margins, fleet vehicle purchases, sales, and related securitizations. Adjusted cash flow is not a substitute for the Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents for a period and is not intended to provide the Company's total sources and uses of cash or measure its change in liquidity. As such, it is important that investors review the Company's consolidated statement of cash flows for a more detailed understanding of the drivers of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, investing activities, and financing activities. Adjusted cash flow metrics are used in managing the Company's mortgage and fleet businesses. The Company has also designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of adjusted cash flow targets, subject to potential adjustments that may be made at the discretion of the Human Capital and Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors. Tangible book value and Tangible book value per share Tangible book value is a measure of Total PHH Corporation stockholders' equity computed in accordance with GAAP excluding the value of goodwill and other intangible assets. Tangible book value per share is a measure of tangible book value, on a per share basis, using the number of shares of outstanding PHH Corporation common stock as of the applicable measurement date. Certain of the Company's debt agreements contain indebtedness-to-tangible net worth ratio covenants, and such ratios are calculated using a measure of tangible net worth that is calculated on a basis similar to the Company's calculation of tangible book value. Accordingly, the Company believes that tangible book value and tangible book value per share provide useful supplementary information to investors.   NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS – CORE EARNINGS(In millions, except per share data)   See “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above in this press release for a description of the uses and limitations of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures.     Regulation G ReconciliationThree Months EndedMarch 31,20122011 Income before income taxes ― as reported $ 124 $ 85 Less: net income attributable to noncontrolling interest   10     3   Segment profit 114 82 Market-related fair value adjustments (1) (43 ) (25 ) Net derivative loss related to MSRs   5   ― Core earnings (pre-tax) $ 76   $ 57     Net income attributable to PHH Corporation ― as reported $ 75 $ 49 Market-related fair value adjustments, net of taxes (1)(2) (25 ) (15 ) Net derivative loss related to MSRs, net of taxes(2)   3   ― Core earnings (after-tax) $ 53   $ 34     Basic earnings per share attributable to PHH Corporation ― as reported $ 1.32 $ 0.87 Market-related fair value adjustments, net of taxes (1)(3) (0.45 ) (0.26 ) Net derivative loss related to MSRs, net of taxes   0.06   ― Core earnings per share $ 0.93   $ 0.61     (1)   Represents the Change in fair value of MSRs due to changes in market inputs and assumptions used in the valuation model.   (2) An incremental effective tax rate of 41% was applied to the MSRs valuation adjustments to arrive at the net of taxes amounts.   (3) Basic weighted-average shares outstanding of 56.657 million and 56.109 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, were used to calculate per share amounts.     NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS – CORE EARNINGS BY SEGMENT(In millions)   See “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above in this press release for a description of the uses and limitations of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures.   Regulation G Reconciliation         First Quarter 2012MortgageProductionSegmentMortgageServicingSegmentFleetManagementServicesSegmentOther Segment profit (loss) $ 117 $ (26 ) $ 24 $ (1 )   Market-related fair value adjustments(1) ― (43 ) ― ― Net derivative loss related to MSRs   ―   5     ―   ―   Core earnings (loss) $ 117 $ (64 ) $ 24 $ (1 )     First Quarter 2011MortgageProductionSegmentMortgageServicingSegmentFleetManagementServicesSegmentOther Segment profit (loss) $ 52 $ 14 $ 16 $ ―   Market-related fair value adjustments(1)   ―   (25 )   ―   ―   Core earnings (loss) $ 52 $ (11 ) $ 16 $ ―   (1)   Represents the Change in fair value of MSRs due to changes in market inputs and assumptions used in the valuation model.     NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS – ADJUSTED CASH FLOW(In millions)   See “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above in this press release for a description of the uses and limitations of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures.   Regulation G Reconciliation   Three Months EndedMarch 31,2012   2011 Net increase in Cash and cash equivalents $ 461 $ 130 Less: Change in unsecured borrowings (192 ) ― Issuances of common stock   ―   (7 ) Adjusted cash flow $ 269   $ 123       NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS ― TANGIBLE BOOK VALUE(in millions except share and per share data)   See “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above in this press release for a description of the uses and limitations of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures.     Regulation G Reconciliation   March 31,December 31,20122011 PHH Corporation stockholders' equity ― as reported $ 1,554 $ 1,442 Goodwill (25 ) (25 ) Intangible assets   (33 )   (33 ) Tangible book value $ 1,496   $ 1,384   Common shares issued and outstanding 56,645,733   56,361,155   Tangible book value per share $ 26.41   $ 24.56     PHH CorporationInvestorsJim Ballan, 856-917-4311jim.ballan@phh.comorMediaHeather McElrath, 856-917-7628heather.mcelrath@phh.com
