Altisource Responds to Potential Transaction Between Ocwen and New Residential

LUXEMBOURG, May 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. ("Altisource" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:ASPS) today issued the following statement in response to a potential transaction between Ocwen Financial Corporation ("Ocwen") and New Residential Corporation ("NRZ"):

Altisource is aware that Ocwen and NRZ have each stated that there are on-going negotiations to reach an agreement that would convert certain of NRZ's existing rights to mortgage servicing rights ("MSRs") to fully-owned MSRs.  We view efforts by Ocwen and NRZ to reach an agreement that reduces uncertainty and strengthens the relationship between NRZ and Ocwen as a positive development.

Altisource has long-term service agreements with Ocwen to provide various fee-based services on an exclusive basis. Altisource has invested substantial resources in acquiring and developing the infrastructure and services it provides to Ocwen and remains committed to providing these services and supporting Ocwen.  Altisource expects that any potential agreement between Ocwen and NRZ will be consistent with and respect Altisource's service agreements with Ocwen.  Altisource is in communication with both Ocwen and NRZ.
