FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Nov. 1, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2021. 

"The third quarter proved to be another strong milestone in market share growth, increasing to 3.5% from 2.4% during the same quarter last year," said loanDepot Founder and CEO Anthony Hsieh. "Our growing brand, proprietary mello tech stack, diversified channel strategy--which is the industry's only at-scale model of this type--and the hard work and enthusiasm of our talented employees delivered higher revenues, higher earnings, and higher earnings per share.

"Our results demonstrate the agility and operational flexibility of our multi-channel strategy which enables us to succeed in any market condition, including challenging ones. The results of the third quarter are only a preview of what is to come in the future as we intend to continue to hire the best, leverage our brand, develop and apply innovative technology solutions, drive down costs and add more products and services to help our customers successfully navigate one of the most important financial transactions of their lives.

"Our marketing engine and customer acquisition abilities are one of the best in the business. Notably in October, we wrapped up the successful first year of our multi-year partnership with Major League Baseball by dominating media exposure at one of the biggest stages in professional sports: the League Championship Series presented by loanDepot. Our brand reached millions of baseball fans during ALCS and NLCS and was further supported by the launch of a new national advertising campaign featuring the success stories of real loanDepot customers. We believe our market share increase is a direct result of our growing investments and increased marketing reach, as well as our technology that matches customers to the best loan officer for their needs across our multi-channel strategy. And, thanks to our 'Home Means Everything,' RBI campaign, we donated more than $665,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, exemplifying our deep commitment to communities in which we live and work and delivering life-changing support for more than four million young people nationwide.

"Looking ahead, we believe our industry is moving towards consolidation of service providers for products and services for the homeowner and loanDepot is leading the way. We are uniquely positioned with the brand, technology and scale to invest in these additional products and services. The loanDepot Grand Slam is paving the way towards this consolidation with early success in the form of substantial increases in purchase lead volume, real estate agent introductions, and real estate listings. We won't stop there; we're already planning to offer additional products and services for the benefit of our customers."

Hsieh concluded, "We remain focused on our long-term strategy and vision to become the most trusted homeowner fulfillment company in the world, using our industry-leading position to drive the type of value and ease that today's customers expect and demand. loanDepot represents an incredible value, and we are confident we will continue to accelerate our growth, increase our market share, serve our customers, employees, shareholders and communities while outperforming in the long term."

Current Market Conditions:

  • Higher interest rates resulting in lower refinance transaction volumes.
  • Continuing strong demand for purchase transactions, which is somewhat adversely impacted by supply constraints on new and resale housing and seasonal slowdown in buying activity.
  • Increasing homeowners' equity supports strong demand for cash-out refinance volume.
  • Decreasing number of borrowers experiencing distress, with lower delinquencies and fewer borrowers in forbearance.
  • Sharper focus on industry consolidation and expansion of ancillary products and services to capture additional revenue sources and expand customer engagement points.

(1)

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.

(2)

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.

(3)

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.

(4)

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 includes net income attributable to loanDepot, Inc. divided by the diluted weighted average shares of Class A and Class D common stock outstanding for the period after February 11, 2021.

Operational Results

  • Rate lock volume of $43.7 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2021 resulted in quarterly total revenue of $923.8 million, which represents an increase of $143.8 million, or 18%, from the second quarter of 2021.
  • Loan origination volume for the third quarter of 2021 was $32.0 billion, a decrease of $2.5 billion or 7% from the second quarter of 2021.
  • Our Retail and Partner strategies delivered $11.0 billion of purchase loan originations and $21.0 billion of refinance loan originations during the third quarter of 2021.
  • Net income for the third quarter of 2021 increased to $154.3 million as compared to $26.3 million in the prior quarter. The quarter over quarter increase was primarily driven by the increase in rate lock volume and gain on sale margins, and a decrease in personnel expense.
  • Primarily as a result of higher net income, adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 increased to $238.3 million as compared to $109.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of fair value changes of our mortgage servicing rights, net of hedging results, and other non-core operating expenses.
  • Total expenses for the third quarter of 2021 decreased by $4.6 million, or 1% from the second quarter of 2021, due primarily to lower personnel expenses, partially due to the cost cutting initiatives that we initiated in the second quarter, and somewhat offset by higher marketing and advertising expenses.

Other Highlights

  • Returned value to shareholders through a regular cash dividend of $0.08 per share paid on October 18, 2021, to shareholders of record on October 4, 2021.
  • For the twelve month period ending September 30, 2021, our preliminary organic refinance consumer direct recapture rate2 increased to 71% as compared to the final recapture rate of 61% for the twelve month period ending September 30, 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 $145.3 billion in unpaid principal balance serviced as of September 30, 2021. This increase was against the backdrop of growing our servicing portfolio in-house and relying less on third party sub-servicing arrangements.
  • We believe our position as the second largest independent retail mortgage brand grew even stronger through our ongoing national television ad campaign delivering over 20 billion household impressions from May 2020 through September 2021. This resulted in an increase in website visits during the third quarter by 16% from the third quarter of 2020.
  • Millions of consumers recently interacted with the loanDepot brand as the presenting sponsor of two of the nation's preeminent sporting events - the ALCS and NLCS, which averaged approximately five million viewers per game over each six game series.
  • The fourth annual War Heroes on Water (WHOW) sport fishing tournament founded by loanDepot CEO Anthony Hsieh and supported by loanDepot, served 100 veterans directly and raised $1.4 million for WHOW's philanthropic partner, Freedom Alliance, to serve the needs of thousands more. In addition to the "Home Means Everything" RBI Campaign, loanDepot was also honored as the first "Corporate Champion" for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast in recognition of our continued passion and support for its mission.

Our Partner Channel originates loans through our network of approved mortgage brokers, as well as a series of exclusive joint ventures with some of the nation's largest homebuilders and depositories, who market our broad spectrum of products utilizing our innovative mello® technology platform to efficiently underwrite, process and fund mortgage loans, while delivering an exceptional customer experience. During the third quarter of 2021, our Partner Channel accounted for $7.0 billion, or 22%, of our loan originations. Margins in this channel have been adversely impacted by increased competitive pressures from some of the larger wholesale focused lenders.

The returns were complemented by $3.0 million of income recorded from our joint ventures for the third quarter of 2021, reflecting the wide variety of industry partners we work with in the channel.

The increase in unpaid principal balance of our servicing portfolio was driven by an increase in servicing-retained loan sales, offset somewhat by sales of $13.5 billion of unpaid principal balance during the quarter. We continued to invest in growing our high-quality servicing portfolio, which is also a valuable origination source for us.

As of September 30, 2021, approximately 1.1%, or $1.6 billion, of our servicing portfolio was in active forbearance. This represents a decrease from 1.4%, or $1.9 billion as of June 30, 2021.

The increase in cash and cash equivalents from June 30, 2021 was primarily due to net proceeds of $152.4 million from the bulk sale of MSR servicing rights and loans sold in excess of loans originated during the quarter, partially offset by a reduction in debt obligations from the paydown of repo facilities. A decrease in loans held for sale at September 30, 2021, resulted in a corresponding decrease in the balance on our warehouse lines of credit as loans sold exceeded loan originations. Total funding capacity with our lending partners increased to $11.1 billion at September 30, 2021 from $9.5 billion at June 30, 2021. The funding capacity increase of $1.6 billion was primarily due to the addition of one new facility and increased commitments on existing facilities. Available borrowing capacity was $2.8 billion at September 30, 2021.

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.
