MOORPARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PennyMac Financial Services, Inc. (NYS: PFSI) today reported net income of $48.2 million for the second quarter of 2013, on revenue of $110.8 million. Net income attributable to PFSI common stockholders reflecting the post-IPO period of May 9 through June 30 is $2.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. The full-quarter equivalent earnings per diluted share would have been $0.38.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Total revenue of $110.8 million, up 5 percent from the prior quarter
  • Mortgage Banking revenue of $97.2 million, up 6 percent from the prior quarter
  • Investment Management revenue of $13.5 million, down 3 percent from the prior quarter

"PennyMac Financial is building the leading non-bank mortgage specialist company and continues to demonstrate growth in all of our underlying business drivers," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stanford L. Kurland. "Our pace of growth in correspondent lending slowed somewhat, due to higher mortgage rates and the resulting origination market conditions. However, we continued to demonstrate significant organic growth in loan servicing, driven by our production activities. Our investment management business continues to contribute management fees and performance-driven incentive fees and is poised for additional growth with many attractive investment opportunities being pursued for PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYS: PMT) in particular."

Mortgage Banking Segment

PFSI's Mortgage Banking Segment encompasses loan production, which includes retail lending and correspondent lending both for its own account and on behalf of PMT for which it provides fulfillment services, and loan servicing, which includes owned servicing and subservicing. Mortgage Banking revenues were $97.2 million, an increase of 6 percent from the first quarter, driven by a 38 percent increase in net servicing fees to $22.1 million, as the servicing portfolio grew 23 percent during the quarter. Higher net gains on mortgage loans held for sale and origination fees also contributed to the increase in Mortgage Banking revenues. During the quarter, PFSI's production activity totaled $8.9 billion, of which $4.3 billion was fee-based fulfillment activities for PMT.

Loan Production

During the second quarter, PennyMac Financial originated and managed the acquisition of $4.6 billion in UPB of loans for its own account, and interest rate lock commitments (IRLCs) totaled $5.3 billion, compared to $4.0 billion and $4.3 billion, respectively, in the first quarter. PFSI generated $42.7 million in net gains on mortgage loans held for sale in the second quarter, a 7 percent increase from the first quarter and a 188 percent increase from the same period a year ago. The net gain on mortgage loans acquired for sale is detailed in the following table:

Fees earned from fulfillment of correspondent loans on behalf of PMT totaled $22.1 million in the second quarter, compared to $28.2 million in the first quarter. PFSI performs fulfillment services for conventional conforming and jumbo loans acquired by PMT in its correspondent lending business. These services include reviews of loan data, documentation and appraisals to assess loan quality and risk; the approval of correspondent sellers and monitoring of their ongoing performance; and the subsequent sale and securitization of loans in the secondary mortgage markets for PMT. The decrease in fulfillment fees was primarily due to the reduction in conventional funding volume from the first quarter.

Loan Servicing

Net servicing fees for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $22.1 million, an increase of 38 percent from the first quarter. The following table presents a breakdown of the net servicing fees:

The total servicing portfolio reached $44.4 billion in UPB, an increase of 23 percent from March 31, 2013 and 254 percent from June 30, 2012. Of the total servicing portfolio at June 30, 2013, prime servicing was $39.4 billion in UPB and special servicing was $5.0 billion in UPB. The Company subservices $25.5 billion in UPB for its advised entities, an increase of 19 percent from March 31, 2013 due to correspondent acquisitions and distressed whole loan acquisitions by PMT. PFSI's MSR portfolio grew to $18.2 billion in UPB, an increase of 25 percent over the prior quarter driven by its own correspondent acquisitions of government-insured loans, as well as PFSI's retail lending activities. The table below details PFSI's servicing portfolio as of June 30, 2013:

Investment Management Segment

PennyMac Financial earns a management fee and incentive compensation from PMT and two Investment Funds, which had combined net assets of approximately $1.8 billion as of June 30, 2013. Total revenue for the Investment Management segment was $13.5 million, down 3 percent from the first quarter, but up over 76 percent from the same period last year. Base management fees, excluding performance-based incentives, were up 4 percent over the previous quarter on PMT's increased equity. Incentive fees and carried interest were $6.7 million, a slight decrease from the first quarter, as the Investment Funds' first quarter performance outpaced second quarter results.


Expenses for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $60.5 million, an increase of 20 percent from the first quarter, driven by compensation and interest expenses. Compensation expense increased to $42.3 million, a 19 percent increase from the first quarter. This was largely due to continued headcount growth commensurate with the Company's expansion and the accrual of certain incentive compensation expenses above first quarter levels. Interest expense totaled $4.2 million, an increase of less than $1 million from the prior quarter on increased utilization of the credit facilities associated with correspondent lending.

"As the origination market slows down and shifts to a purchase-money market, we are taking a close look at the pace of growth in our operations," noted Mr. Kurland. "The shifts in the mortgage market, however, underscore the power of PennyMac Financial's business model, with contributions from loan production, loan servicing, and investment management, and a significant percentage of our revenues from recurring fees."

"Our servicing portfolio continues to grow rapidly through organic production, and we have significant opportunities to continue profitable market share gains in our correspondent and retail lending businesses. PMT, the REIT that we manage, has been very active putting capital to work in multiple opportunities including distressed whole loans, jumbo loans, and its correspondent lending activities, which helps grow our servicing portfolio and increase investment management revenues over time. I am excited about all of these opportunities PFSI is pursuing which we expect to drive substantial profitability and earnings growth over the long-term."
