The Company plans to report its complete results in a news release to be issued after the market close on Wednesday, August 5th. The news release will be available online at www.ir.pennymacfinancial.com.

The following reflects the Company’s expectations for the quarter ended June 30, 2015:

  • Loan production volume of approximately $13 billion in unpaid principal balance (UPB), compared to $9 billion in UPB the prior quarter
  • Total net revenue in the range of $190 million to $203 million, compared to $140 million the prior quarter

The Company expects to report total consolidated cash and short-term investments of approximately $98 million, bank borrowings of approximately $1.7 billion, and a servicing portfolio of $136 billion in UPB at June 30, 2015. Bank borrowings include mortgage loans sold under agreements to repurchase, borrowings under a mortgage loan participation and sale agreement, and borrowings under a note payable.

The estimates set forth above are based solely on currently available information, which is subject to change and has not been reviewed by our independent auditors. We have not finalized our review of financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and during the course of our review we may identify items that would require us to make adjustments to our preliminary operating results described above. As a result, the discussion above constitutes forward-looking statements and, therefore, we caution you that these statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including possible adjustments to our preliminary operating results and the risk factors highlighted in our public filings.

This press release contains a non-GAAP financial measure which is being provided only as supplemental information. Investors should consider this non-GAAP financial measure only in conjunction with the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is included in this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net income attributable to PFSI common stockholders plus net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, decrease (increase) in fair value and provision for impairment of mortgage servicing rights carried at lower of amortized cost or fair value, increase (decrease) in fair value of excess servicing spread payable to PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust, hedging losses (gains) associated with MSRs, and stock-based compensation expense to the extent that such items existed in the periods presented. Adjusted EBITDA is a metric frequently used in our industry to measure performance and management believes that it provides supplemental information that is useful to investors.

Adjusted EBITDA is an unaudited financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and this measure may vary among other companies. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
