Month: May 2021

first_img Ocwen Financial has re-initiated its two-year-old stock repurchase program after a nine-month suspension, according to an 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.The stock repurchase program was originally announced on October 31, 2013, by the Ocwen board of directors, for an aggregate of $500 million of the company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The company announced that it was suspending the stock repurchase program on February 5, 2015.“The company believes it is appropriate at this time to reinitiate our stock repurchase program effective November 19, 2015,” Ocwen said in the SEC filing. “As of November 19, 2015, the approximate remaining value of shares that may be repurchased under the program is $129.7 million.”When contacted by DS News, Ocwen declined to comment on the re-initiation of the stock repurchase program. In the SEC filing, the company said there can be no assurance to how many shares it will purchase at any given period under the share repurchase program, if any at all are repurchased. Purchases under Ocwen’s program may be made on market or in privately negotiated transactions, according to the filing.Ocwen announced earlier in November that it had closed an offering of fixed-rate asset-backed term notes issued by Ocwen Master Advance Receivables Trust (OMART) and totaling $600 million in aggregate principal. The sale of the notes marks a bright spot for the Atlanta-based servicer after a down third quarter. In late October, Ocwen announced a net loss of $66.8 million for the quarter. Also, toward the end of September, Ocwen laid off about 300 employees, or approximately 10 percent of its U.S. workforce. In mid-September, toward the end of Q3, Ocwen settled a class action suit for $140 million in a Miami court with homeowners who had sued over inflated “force placed insurance” premiums.

The three-member panel of judges led by Chief Judge Carl Stewart was hearing a case filed by three shareholders of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac against the FHFA, its Director as well as the Treasury and its Secretary.The shareholders contended that the Treasury and the FHFA exceeded their statutory authority under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008 and challenged an agreement between the FHFA as conservator to Fannie and Freddie and the Treasury Department. Under the agreement in question, the shareholders claimed that the Treasury provided billions of taxpayer dollars in capital. In exchange, the GSEs were required to pay the Treasury quarterly dividends equal to their entire net worth in an exchange known as the “net worth sweep.” The shareholders were unhappy with the bailout out terms of this agreement and filed a suit arguing that the agreement rendered their shares valueless.They also contended that the agreement was arbitrary and capricious under the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. § 706(2)(A) (“APA”), while claiming that the FHFA was unconstitutionally structured because it was headed by a single Director, “removable only for cause, does not depend on congressional appropriations, and evades meaningful judicial review.”After the hearing, the three-member bench dismissed the shareholders’ statutory claims and granted summary judgment in favor of the FHFA and Treasury on the constitutional claim. “Because we find that the FHFA acted within its statutory authority by adopting the net worth sweep, we hold that the Shareholders’ APA claims are barred by § 4617(f),” the judges ruled. “But we also find that the FHFA is unconstitutionally structured and violates the separation of powers. Accordingly, we affirm in part and reverse in part.”A recent ruling by a New York Judge had also upheld a previous ruling that said the Bureau of Financial Protection (BCFP) was unconstitutional for the same reason.Read the detailed ruling and background of the case here.Learn More about recent BCFP rulings:CFPB vs. PHH Dismissed: RESPA Enforcement ImplicationsCFPB vs. PHH—An Unexpected Conclusion Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
