FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., May 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- loanDepot, Inc. (NYSE: LDI), (together with its subsidiaries, "loanDepot" or the "Company"), the innovative consumer lending and real estate services provider that is using its proprietary mello® technology to deliver best-in-class experiences to its customers, today announced results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2021.

"We are proud of our first quarter results and thank the customers who have entrusted us with one of the most important financial transactions of their lives: the purchase or refinance of the place that means everything — their home," said loanDepot Founder and CEO Anthony Hsieh.

"loanDepot was intentionally and purposely built to be different and our focus on the customer and technology experience has allowed us to set ourselves apart from others in the marketplace and have a record-breaking 2020 and first quarter 2021," continued Hsieh. "Our at-scale, successful, diversified operating model coupled with our customer-centric, technology-driven mindset has allowed our brand to become one of the most-recognized in the industry today, and a true differentiator for our company. Our brand, and its promise, is one of the main reasons that loanDepot has increased our already-industry leading organic customer recapture rate by 9% quarter over quarter. As we look forward to the remainder of 2021, we are confident that loanDepot will continue to thrive. We will continue to establish new products and services and evaluate acquisitions, and, most importantly, always be sure that we are taking great care of our stockholders, team members and the more than 30,000 individuals and families that count on us each month."

loanDepot continued to demonstrate that its differentiated offering and diversified operating model positions the Company for success amid shifting market conditions.

  • Expansive Product and Service Offering Coupled with a Leading Brand: The Company's broad suite of products and services and powerful data and analytics capabilities have been intentionally constructed to provide customers with a robust set of best-fit choices, which ensures the Company thrives in any market environment. Thanks to the brand and reputation built over the last eleven years, loanDepot has one of the most recognized brands in the industry today and an NPS score on par with best-in-class consumer technology goods and services leaders.
  • Diversified Business Model: loanDepot's dual focus on its Retail and Partner strategies enables the Company to raise awareness and generate leads broadening its "top of funnel" consumer reach. These strategies position the Company to continue to thrive despite changing rate cycles.
  • Variable Expense Base: Our technology enabled platform allows us to scale our operations for changes in volume in a highly efficient manner. This platform, coupled with our continuous focus on expenses, means we can continue to deliver value while adjusting to a changing market.
  • Sophisticated Financing Approach: Through its multiple sources of liquidity—including loan funding warehouse facilities, MSR facilities, off-balance sheet gestation facilities, mello securitizations and cash on hand—loanDepot has established a sophisticated and flexible financing approach that allows the Company to fund its loan origination business and protect against foreseeable market risks.

Current Market Conditions:
Across the mortgage industry, the first quarter was marked by rising interest rates as well as the continuing slowdown in the volume of refinancings.

  • Interest rates began to rise in late Q1 and there has been a corresponding reduction in market opportunities and gain on sale margins throughout the industry. While the rise in interest rates was expected, the shift began earlier in 2021 than was generally anticipated.
  • Competitive pressures from pricing strategies implemented by other market participants had a market-wide impact on margins.
  • The Company continues to see strong demand for purchase transactions fueled by interest rates, that while rising, remain at low levels, coupled with continued constraints on supply.

(1)

Gain on sale margin represents the total of (i) gain on origination and sale of loans, net, and (ii) origination income, net, divided by loan origination volume during period.

(2)

Pull through weighted gain on sale margin represents the total of (i) gain on origination and sale of loans, net, and (ii) origination income, net, divided by the pull through weighted rate lock volume. Pull through weighted rate lock volume is the unpaid principal balance of loans subject to interest rate lock commitments, net of a pull-through factor for the loan funding probability.

(3)

On February 11, 2021, the Company's common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Since loanDepot did not have any shares outstanding prior to this date, earnings per share ("EPS") information was not determinable. The diluted EPS calculation for the three months ended March 31, 2021 only includes net income attributable to loanDepot, Inc. of $44.9 million divided by the diluted weighted average shares of Class A and Class D common stock outstanding for the period from February 11, 2021 to March 31, 2021.

See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a discussion of how we define and calculate Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA, and for a reconciliation of these metrics to their closest GAAP measure.

Operational Results

  • Rate lock volume of $45.8 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2021 resulted in quarterly total revenue of $1.3 billion, which represents an increase of $17.6 million, or 1%, from the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Record loan origination volume for the first quarter of 2021 was $41.5 billion, an increase of $4.1 billion or 11% from the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Our Retail and Partner strategies delivered $7.9 billion of purchase loan originations and $33.6 billion of refinance loan originations during the first quarter of 2021.
  • Net income for the first quarter of 2021 decreased to $427.9 million as compared to $547.2 million in the prior quarter. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2021 decreased to $319.4 million as compared to $375.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The quarter over quarter decreases were driven by the decline in gain on sale margins and increased variable expenses from higher loan origination volume.
  • Total expenses for the first quarter of 2021 increased $119.4 million, or 16% from the fourth quarter of 2020, due to IPO related expenses of $63.5 million of which $58.7 million was stock-based compensation expense related to the IPO stock grant. Additionally, expenses increased due to higher direct expenses from record loan originations, additional personnel expense to support the growth in our business and higher marketing costs as we expanded our national brand campaign.
  • Disciplined and purposeful investments in the Company's technology enabled a 2% decline in cost per loan for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

Other Highlights

  • On April 21, 2021, the Company declared a special cash dividend on its Class A common stock and Class D common stock. LD Holdings Group LLC ("LD Holdings"), a subsidiary of the Company, declared a simultaneous special cash dividend on its units. The aggregate amount of the special dividend to be paid by the Company and LD Holdings is $200.0 million, or $0.612 per share or $0.615 per unit, as applicable (the "Special Dividend"). The Special Dividend will be paid on May 18, 2021 to the Company's stockholders and LD Holdings' members of record as of the close of business on May 3, 2021.
  • loanDepot has continued to invest in the strength of its brand through partnerships with Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Miami Marlins. Earlier this year, loanDepot was named the presenting sponsor of the American and National League Championship Series and named the Official Mortgage Provider of both MLB and the Miami Marlins. The Company also secured exclusive naming rights for loanDepot park, the home of the Miami Marlins and world-class special events.
  • For the first quarter of 2021, our organic refinance consumer direct recapture rate1 increased to 72% as compared to 66% for the fourth quarter of 2020. This highlights the efficacy of our marketing efforts and the strength of our customer relationships, which includes our growing servicing portfolio that reached a record level of $129.7 billion in unpaid principal balance serviced as of March 31, 2021.
  • Continuing its track record of creating strategically beneficial joint ventures, loanDepot entered into a partnership with Schell Brothers, a premier builder of energy efficient homes in Delaware and Virginia. The new joint venture, named Henlopen Mortgage, pairs Schell Brothers' innovative, highly personalized home options with loanDepot's seamless borrowing experience, powered by its proprietary mello™ technology.
  • loanDepot prioritizes community involvement in the areas its team members live and work and believes its efforts are intrinsic to the Company's success. The Company announced various key initiatives that exemplify its strong commitment to communities nationwide, including the "Home Means Everything" MLB campaign through which loanDepot will donate $25 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America for each RBI during the 2021 regular season.
  • We believe our position as the second most recognized mortgage brand grew even stronger through our ongoing national television ad campaign delivering over 12 billion household impressions from May 2020 through March 2021. Our extensive data analytics also allowed us to capitalize on the 1.8 million average monthly website visits and 582 million online media exposures during the first quarter of 2021.

1 We define organic refinance consumer direct recapture rate as the total unpaid principal balance ("UPB") of loans in our servicing portfolio that are paid in full for purposes of refinancing the loan on the same property, with the Company acting as lender on both the existing and new loan, divided by the UPB of loans in our servicing portfolio that paid in full for the purpose of refinancing the loan on the same property.

Record quarterly originations drove an increase in loans held for sale at March 31, 2021, which increased by 26% from the prior quarter to $8.8 billion. The balance on our warehouse lines of credit increased by 26% during the quarter due to the increased origination activity. Total funding capacity with our lending partners increased to $10.3 billion at March 31, 2021 from $8.1 billion at December 31, 2020. The increase of $2.2 billion was due to the addition of one new facility with a funding capacity of $500 million maturing in February 2024 as well as increases to existing facilities. Available borrowing capacity was $2.0 billion at March 31, 2021.

On March 26, 2021, we completed an offering of $600 million of 6.125% unsecured senior notes due 2028. Proceeds from the offering will be used for general corporate purposes, including to pay down certain operating indebtedness, and to fund the Special Dividend to our equity holders through a distribution to holders of our Class A and Class D common stock and to unitholders of LD Holdings.

Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents were $630.5 million at March 31, 2021. The increase in cash from December 31, 2020 was primarily due to earnings and the issuance of $600 million in senior notes, partially offset by tax distributions of $6.0 million as required under the Company's operating agreement and profit distributions of $160.3 million as allowed under the Company's operating agreement

The fair value of mortgage servicing rights increased by 57%, or $644.2 million during the first quarter to a record $1.8 billion. This increase was driven by $529.5 million of new additions and a $231.0 million increase in the fair value due to a decrease in prepayment speed assumptions and increased interest rates during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, partially offset by runoff of $118.1 million. During the first quarter of 2021, servicing retained loan sales increased as a result of the record level of loan originations.

The unpaid principal balance of our servicing portfolio increased $26.8 billion, or 26%, to $129.7 billion compared to $102.9 billion as of December 31, 2020, driven by an increase in servicing-retained loan sales. We continued to invest in growing our high-quality servicing portfolio and not only increased total loan originations but also the percentage of our servicing customers who chose to refinance with us. For the first quarter of 2021, our organic refinance consumer direct recapture rate was 72%, highlighting the efficacy of our marketing efforts and the strength of our customer relationships.

Servicing income increased $18.2 million, or 28.3% to $82.6 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $64.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

As of March 31, 2021, approximately 1.4%, or $1.9 billion, of our servicing portfolio was in active forbearance. This represents a decline from 2.4%, or $2.4 billion as of December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with information in addition to our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA as non-GAAP measures. We believe Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors regarding our results of operations because each measure assists both investors and management in analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. They facilitate company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations in hedging strategies, changes in valuations, capital structures (affecting net interest expense), taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities (affecting relative depreciation expense) and the amortization of intangibles, which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance, as well as certain historical cost (benefit) items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for revenue, net income, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies.

We define "Adjusted Total Revenue" as total revenues, net of the change in fair value of mortgage servicing rights ("MSRs") and the related hedging gains and losses. We define "Adjusted Net Income" as tax-effected earnings before change in fair value of contingent consideration, stock compensation expense and management fees, IPO expense, and the change in fair value of MSRs, net of the related hedging gains and losses, and the tax effects of those adjustments. We define "Adjusted Diluted EPS" as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock and Class D common stock outstanding for the applicable period, which assumes the proforma exchange of all outstanding Class C common shares for shares of Class A common stock. We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as earnings before interest expense and amortization of debt issuance costs on non-funding debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of MSRs, net of the related hedging gains and losses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, stock compensation expense and management fees, and IPO related expense. Adjustments for income taxes are made to reflect historical results of operations on the basis that it was taxed as a corporation under the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore subject to U.S. federal, state and local income taxes. We exclude from each of these non-GAAP measures the change in fair value of MSRs and related hedging gains and losses as this represents a non-cash non-realized adjustment to our total revenues, reflecting changes in assumptions including discount rates and prepayment speed assumptions, mostly due to changes in market interest rates, which is not indicative of our performance or results of operations. We also exclude stock compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense, management fees and IPO expenses as management does not consider these costs to be indicative of our performance or results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA includes interest expense on funding facilities, which are recorded as a component of "net interest income (expense)", as these expenses are a direct operating expense driven by loan origination volume. By contrast, interest and amortization expense on non-funding debt is a function of our capital structure and is therefore excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • they do not reflect every cash expenditure, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payment on our debt;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced or require improvements in the future, and Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirement for such replacements or improvements; and
  • they are not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended as alternatives to total revenue, net income (loss), net income attributable to the Company, or Diluted EPS or as an indicator of our operating performance and should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as measures of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations. We compensate for these limitations by using Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA along with other comparative tools, together with U.S. GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. See below for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
