Nationstar Mortgage (“Nationstar”), headquartered in Lewisville, Texas, just outside of Dallas, is a leading residential
mortgage loan servicer and one of the largest non-bank servicers in the United States as measured by aggregate principal
balance of loans serviced. In addition to its core servicing business, Nationstar originates conforming, Fannie Mae, FHA,
FHLMC, VA, Jumbo and USDA residential mortgage loans. Since its inception in 1997, Nationstar has experienced
success by providing exceptional customer service and a wide range of competitive mortgage-related services.
Nationstar’s majority shareholders are funds managed by Fortress Investment Group LLC, a private equity firm with $50+ billion in assets under management. Once a subsidiary of homebuilder Centex, Nationstar was acquired by Fortress-managed funds in 2006. At the time of the transaction, Nationstar (then named Centex Home Equity) was a subprime lender. Like many of its peers, Nationstar exited the subprime lending business in late 2007 and is now one of the leading servicers in the mortgage business.
As major banks exit or scale back from the mortgage servicing business due to a refocus on core customers, capital requirements, and regulatory scrutiny, Nationstar has grown its business and capitalized on this historic opportunity in the servicing business. Nationstar’s growth is reflected in its 84% compound annual growth rate in AEBITDA since 2008. Nationstar’s last reported quarter delivered $1.1 billion in revenue (Q3’12 annualized) and $492 million in EBITDA (Q3’12 annualized).
Nationstar’s business model produces recurring, fee-based revenues based upon contractually established servicing fees, and Nationstar is exposed to minimal credit risk with respect to loans serviced. Nationstar maintains substantial levels of funding and liquidity through multiple capital and funding sources, including major financial institutions and investment banks.
