In addition to the notable items presented above, our results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 include $5 million and $13 million, respectively, of expenses associated with the sale and separation of our Fleet business, net of transition services revenue.

Glen A. Messina, president and CEO of PHH Corporation, said, "One year ago we completed the sale of our Fleet business and presented a strategic plan to revise our capital structure, re-engineer our business and position the company for growth. We have continued to execute on these strategies during the second quarter of 2015 through the substantial conclusion of our private label contract renegotiations and the achievement of nearly 50% of our annualized targeted re-engineering benefits. While we have made good progress on our re-engineering activities, we have more work to do. We have encountered delays in executing our strategies to drive organic growth and our servicing segment continues to operate at a loss. Provided market and interest rate conditions materialize as expected and we successfully complete our strategic initiatives, we expect core earnings before one-time items to improve from the second quarter levels and approach break even for the second half of the year. On the same basis, we expect to return to profitability in 2016."

Messina added, "As we reflect on the many accomplishments over the past year, we are ever mindful of the dynamic regulatory climate and the uncertainty it creates regarding the potential consequences of legacy practices. In light of these regulatory uncertainties, the volatile nature of our industry and our need to increase scale to meet our return objectives, we currently believe it is prudent to conserve our liquidity, and have elected to delay our Board-authorized share repurchase program. We remain committed to executing a capital deployment framework to achieve our long-term return objectives and will continue to evaluate our overall capital structure and liquidity position as we progress."

Mortgage Production

Mortgage Production Segment Results

Mortgage Production segment profit in the second quarter of 2015 was $3 million, compared to a segment loss of $19 million in the first quarter of 2015 and a segment loss of $27 million in the second quarter of 2014. The $22 million improvement in segment results during the second quarter of 2015 compared to the first quarter of 2015 was primarily due to a $29 million increase in Origination and other loan fees driven by a 22% increase in private label closing units and the impact of operating benefits from certain amendments to our private label agreements that was partially offset by a $11 million increase in Total expenses primarily related to higher closing volume. The $30 million improvement in segment results in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2014 was due to a $45 million increase in Total revenue driven by a 30% increase in Total closings, a $9 million improvement in Unsecured interest expense driven by lower Corporate borrowings and the impact of operating benefits from certain amendments to our private label agreements, that were partially offset by a $13 million increase in Total expenses, primarily from higher closing volume and higher allocated costs.

Mortgage Production Statistics

Total second quarter 2015 mortgage closings were $12.1 billion, up 29% from the first quarter of 2015 and up 30% from the second quarter of 2014. The increase in total closings compared to the second quarter of 2014 was mainly driven by a 67% increase in refinance closings from lower relative interest rates. Fee-based closings as a percentage of total closings continued to remain high in the second quarter of 2015, decreasing slightly to 66% of total closings from 67% of total closings in the first quarter of 2015 and increasing from 65% of total closings in the second quarter of 2014. Our Mortgage production results reflect the progress we have made to realize operating benefits from amendments to certain private label agreements; however, the higher mix of fee-based closings has adversely impacted profitability since the revenue per loan on fee-based closings is generally lower than saleable closings.

IRLCs expected to close of $2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2015 increased 1% from the first quarter of 2015 and 5% from the second quarter of 2014. Total loan margin on IRLCs expected to close for the second quarter of 2015 was 299 bps, a 16 bps decline from the first quarter of 2015 and a 26 bps increase from the second quarter of 2014. The decline from the first quarter of 2015 is consistent with the short-term drop in interest rates experienced during the first quarter of 2015 as loan margins tend to widen in periods of declining interest rates as industry participants attempt to balance origination volume with operational capacity.

Mortgage Servicing

Mortgage Servicing Segment Results

Mortgage Servicing segment loss in the second quarter of 2015 was $46 million, compared to a segment profit of $57 million in the first quarter of 2015 and a segment profit of $10 million in the second quarter of 2014. Segment loss for the second quarter of 2015 included a $69 million favorable market-related fair value adjustment to our MSRs, partially offset by a $49 million net derivative loss related to MSRs. This compares to a $12 million favorable market-related fair value adjustment to our MSRs and a $53 million net derivative gain related to MSRs in the first quarter of 2015. The $69 million favorable market-related fair value adjustment for the second quarter of 2015 was primarily attributable to a 36 bps increase in the modeled mortgage rate. The sequential quarter decline in segment results was also driven by an increase in Total expenses primarily resulting from a $34 million provision for legal and regulatory matters and a $6 million provision for certain non-recoverable fees associated with foreclosure activities that were incurred during the second quarter of 2015.

Mortgage Servicing Statistics

At June 30, 2015, the unpaid principal balance (“UPB”) of our capitalized servicing portfolio was $104.7 billion, down 7% from December 31, 2014, and 16% from June 30, 2014. Our capitalized servicing portfolio continues to decline as payoffs, curtailments and sales have exceeded additions from new loan production. During the second quarter of 2015, we continued to execute sales of newly-created MSRs for which we retain the right to subservice the underlying loans.

At June 30, 2015, the UPB of our total loan servicing portfolio was $225.2 billion, representing a 1% decrease from December 31, 2014, and an immaterial change from June 30, 2014. The slight decrease in our total loan servicing portfolio since the end of 2014 primarily reflects the declines in our capitalized servicing portfolio and a sale of a delinquent GNMA portfolio, which transferred in the first quarter of 2015 that was partially offset by an increase in our subservicing UPB. The increase in subserviced loans was primarily driven by fee-based closings and sales of newly-created MSRs.

Mortgage Servicing Rights

At June 30, 2015, the book value of our MSR was $1.0 billion, representing a 97 bps capitalized servicing rate. The MSR book value and capitalized servicing rate at December 31, 2014 was $1.0 billion and 89 bps of the capitalized loan servicing portfolio. The MSR book value at June 30, 2014 was $1.2 billion, representing a 96 bps capitalized servicing rate. During the second quarter of 2015, $28 million in MSR book value was added from loans sold and $69 million was added from market-related fair value adjustments, which was partially offset by a $51 million decrease related to prepayments and the receipt of recurring cash flows, and a $12 million decrease from MSR sales.

Liquidity Update

Liquidity at June 30, 2015 included $880 million in unrestricted Cash and cash equivalents, excluding cash held in variable interest entities. During the second quarter of 2015 we completed an exchange of 99% of our Convertible notes due 2017 for $274 million of cash and 10.076 million shares of our Common stock. A $30 million pre-tax loss was recorded related to this exchange. After completing this transaction, as of June 30, 2015, we had $617 million total principal of unsecured debt outstanding with our next maturity date in September 2019.

* NOTE REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures for all periods presented reflect the continuing operations of the Company and exclude the results of the Fleet business and amounts related to the disposition of the business.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax), core earnings or loss per share, adjusted cash flow, tangible book value and tangible book value per share are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. See Non-GAAP Reconciliations below for a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as required by Regulation G.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share involves differences from Segment profit or loss, Income or loss from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income or loss attributable to PHH Corporation and Basic earnings or loss per share attributable to PHH Corporation computed in accordance with GAAP. Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, Segment profit or loss, Income or loss from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income or loss attributable to PHH Corporation or Basic earnings or loss per share from continuing operations computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s financial performance.

Adjusted cash flow excludes the change in the Cash balance of discontinued operations and involves differences from Net increase or 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 or 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.

Non-GAAP metrics are used in managing certain aspects of the Company’s business. For example, management’s reviews of results incorporate Non-GAAP metrics and certain of the Company’s debt agreements contain covenants calculated using a measure similar to the calculations of the Non-GAAP metrics. The Company has also designed certain management incentives based upon the achievement of targets related to Non-GAAP metrics. 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 or loss, Income or loss from continuing operations before income taxes, Net income or loss attributable to PHH Corporation and Basic earnings or loss per share from continuing operations attributable to PHH Corporation in accordance with GAAP.

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share

Core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share measure the Company’s financial performance from continuing operations 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.

Limitations on the use of Core Earnings: Since core earnings or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or loss per share measure the Company’s financial performance from continuing operations 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 or loss (pre-tax and after-tax) and core earnings or 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 excludes the change in the Cash balance of discontinued operations and measures the Company’s Net increase or decrease in cash and cash equivalents from continuing operations for a given period excluding changes resulting from the issuance or repurchase 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 loan margins.

Limitations on the use of Adjusted Cash Flow: Adjusted cash flow is not a substitute for the Net increase or 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.

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.
