BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. ("Nationstar" or the "Company") (NYSE: NSM). Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Nationstar shares between February 27, 2014 and May 4, 2015, inclusive (the "Class Period") may move the Court no later than August 1, 2015 to be appointed as a class representative.
Nationstar generates revenues primarily through its loan servicing business. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period the Company misled investors into believing that Nationstar was improving its profitability as a result of increased servicing revenue on its expanding loan portfolio. Unbeknownst to investors, Nationstar allegedly engaged in unethical and allegedly illegal behavior in connection with servicing the loan portfolio. The complaint alleges Nationstar had been overcharging borrowers and illegally enhancing its profits through illicit practices, such as charging for repeated, unnecessary inspections, which resulted in additional late payment fees, and pressuring mortgagors to carry out expensive modifications and refinances on their mortgages. On May 5, 2015, Nationstar issued disappointing first quarter 2015 financial results in part related to enforcement actions by government regulators to limit the Company’s allegedly unethical and/or illegal business practices. The Company reported a net loss of $48.3 million, on revenues that had fallen 15% year-over-year. On this news, shares of Nationstar fell by over $6.60 to close at $19.51 per share on May 5, 2015.
