Item 8.01. Other Events.
Purchase Agreement
On August 8, 2016, New Residential Mortgage LLC (“NRM”), a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of New Residential Investment Corp. (the “Company”), entered into a flow and bulk agreement for the purchase and sale of mortgage servicing rights (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Ditech Financial LLC (“Ditech”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, NRM agreed to (i) purchase the mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) and related servicing advances with respect to approximately 272,000 existing residential mortgage loans in Federal National Mortgage Association pools with a total unpaid principal balance (“UPB”) of approximately $33 billion (the “Existing MSRs”) for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $215 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments set forth in the Purchase Agreement, and (ii) provide ongoing daily pricing to Ditech for the purchase of MSRs from Ditech relating to new mortgage loans originated or purchased by Ditech on a flow basis and pooled into Federal National Mortgage Association, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation or Government National Mortgage Association (collectively, the “Agencies”) securities (the “Flow MSRs”). The initial term of the Purchase Agreement is three years, with annual, one-year renewals thereafter, subject to certain termination rights; provided, that, NRM may decline to provide pricing for Flow MSRs on any day and may terminate the Purchase Agreement with respect to Flow MSRs on 30 days’ notice. The purchase of the Existing MSRs and any Flow MSRs are subject to, among other customary conditions, the approval of the applicable Agencies. Ditech will initially service the mortgage loans related to the Existing MSRs and the Flow MSRs pursuant to the Subservicing Agreement referred to below.
On August 8, 2016, in connection with the entry of the Purchase Agreement, Walter Investment Management Corp. (“Walter”), a Maryland corporation and the parent of Ditech, provided NRM with a payment and performance guaranty of Ditech’s obligations, including repurchase and indemnification obligations, under the Purchase Agreement.
Subservicing Agreement
On August 8, 2016, in connection with the entry of the Purchase Agreement, NRM and Ditech entered into a subservicing agreement (the “Subservicing Agreement”), pursuant to which Ditech agreed to act as subservicer for NRM and perform all of the actual servicing activities (“subservicing”) required under the servicing agreements relating to the Existing MSRs, any Flow MSRs purchased by NRM under the Purchase Agreement and certain other MSRs that may be acquired in the future by NRM. Under the Subservicing Agreement and related documents, Ditech will perform all daily servicing obligations on behalf of NRM, including collecting payments from borrowers and offering refinancing options to borrowers for purposes of minimizing portfolio runoff. Ditech agreed to perform subservicing on behalf of NRM at fixed prices set forth in the Subservicing Agreement for an initial term of one year, with annual, one-year renewals thereafter, subject to certain termination rights set forth in the Subservicing Agreement. With respect to NRM, the initial term of the Subservicing Agreement will expire on the first anniversary of the effective date and shall automatically terminate unless renewed on a month-by-month basis, subject to certain termination rights set forth in the Subservicing Agreement.
WCO Transaction
NRM, Walter and Walter Capital Opportunity, LP have agreed in principle for the purchase and sale of substantially all of the assets of Walter Capital Opportunity, LP and its subsidiaries (“WCO”), along with certain related assets owned by Walter, which, collectively, represent approximately $35 billion UPB of MSRs for a purchase price of approximately $264 million. The transaction, which is subject to negotiation and execution of definitive documentation, is expected to contain similar general terms, including term, representations and warranties, covenants and indemnification, and be subject to similar conditions precedent, such as regulatory and government-sponsored enterprise approvals, as the Purchase Agreement described above, as well as additional terms and conditions customary for a transaction of this type. There can be no assurance that definitive documentation will be entered into on the terms described herein, or at all. Upon acquisition of the assets in the WCO transaction, Ditech will subservice the related mortgage loans for NRM under the Subservicing Agreement described above.
