Dear Fellow Shareholder:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I cordially invite you to attend the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (the “Annual Meeting”), which will be held at the registered office of the Company located at 33, Boulevard Prince Henri, L-1724 Luxembourg City, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Central European Time. We will also hold an Extraordinary Meeting of Shareholders (the “Extraordinary Meeting”) at 9:30 a.m. Central European Time on the same day and in the same location. The Board of Directors is convening the Extraordinary Meeting in order to consider renewing and extending the Board of Directors’ authorization to issue shares of the Company’s common stock within the limits of the Company’s authorized share capital, as well as certain amendments to the Company’s articles of association, as more fully set forth in the accompanying materials. Further details regarding admission to the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting as well as the business to be conducted at these meetings are also more fully described in the accompanying materials.
We intend to hold the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting in person; however, we are actively monitoring the protocols and restrictions that the Luxembourg government may implement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that could prevent us from having an in-person meeting. If it is not possible to hold the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting in person, or if we conclude that providing alternatives for access by remote communication is appropriate, we will announce alternative or additional arrangements as promptly as practicable, which may include conducting the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting solely by means of remote attendance or conducting a hybrid Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting with alternatives for in-person or remote attendance. If you are planning to attend our Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting, please monitor protocols and restrictions implemented by the Luxembourg government and check our press releases at http://ir.altisource.com/press-releases for updated information.
It is very important that you be present or represented at the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting regardless of the number of shares you own or whether you are able to attend in person. If you are a shareholder of record (that is, you hold your shares in your name as a holder of record with our transfer agent), you may authorize your proxy by the Internet or by mail as described in the accompanying materials for the Annual Meeting. For the Extraordinary Meeting you may authorize your proxy by mail only. If you hold your shares through a bank or broker, please follow the voting instructions you receive from your bank or broker. This will not prevent you from voting in person but will ensure that your vote is counted if you are unable to attend or are limited to remote attendance.
Thank you for your support of and interest in Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A.
Sincerely,
William B. Shepro
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

2021 Highlights
Altisource® is an integrated service provider and marketplace for the real estate and mortgage industries. Combining operational excellence with a suite of innovative services and technologies, Altisource helps solve the demands of the ever-changing markets we serve. Traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “ASPS,” Altisource is organized under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Set forth below is a partial summary of Altisource’s 2021 performance. Please refer to our 2021 Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for a more complete description of our 2021 performance.
Altisource demonstrated resiliency during 2021, a year defined by challenges from the pandemic and related borrower relief programs that significantly impacted our revenue and earnings. We strengthened our balance sheet, ending 2021 with $98.1 million in cash representing a 68% increase in cash compared to 2020.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Proxy Summary   
In the fourth quarter of 2021, we completed the sale of our equity interests in our Pointillist subsidiary for approximately $102 million in cash and an additional approximately $3.5 million deposited in an indemnification escrow, generating an $89 million post-tax gain. We used $20 million of the proceeds to repay the outstanding balance on our revolving line of credit.
We reduced 2021 cash operating costs (excluding outside fees and services) by 25% compared to 2020. During 2021, the Company implemented certain cost reduction measures to address potential impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including a temporary reduction of the base salary of Mr. Shepro, Ms. Esterman and certain other senior leaders. These reductions commenced on March 1, 2021 and continued until December 1, 2021. In addition, Mr. Shepro voluntarily waived on a permanent basis his housing allowance, effective March 1, 2021, and the use of one company leased vehicle, effective June 1, 2021.
The restricted share units (“RSUs”) granted pursuant to the 2021 Long-Term Incentive Awards for executive officers and other employees were calculated using a fixed share price rather than the average 30-trading day share price preceding the grant date which was the method historically used to determine the number of RSUs granted. A $15 share price was applied to determine the number of RSUs granted, rather than the average $10.56 share price over the preceding 30-trading day period, resulting in a smaller number of RSUs being granted. The smaller number of RSUs granted reduced shareholder dilution when compared to the grants that would have been applied using the historical methodology. Further, Mr. Shepro voluntarily reduced his target 2021 Long-Term Incentive Award by seventy percent (70%), from 83,997 RSUs to 25,199 RSUs.
2021 referrals to Hubzu, our online real estate sale platform, were 30% higher than 2020, including a 62% increase in foreclosure referrals and a 6% decrease in REO referrals. As of December 31, 2021, Hubzu inventory included over 6,300 homes, representing a 27% increase compared to December 31, 2020, including a 67% increase in foreclosure inventory and a 5% decrease in REO inventory.
In the second quarter of 2021, we entered into an agreement with Ocwen Financial Corporation (together with its subsidiaries, “Ocwen”) extending the terms of certain services agreements from August 2025 through August 2030 and expanding the scope of solutions to include, among other things, the opportunity for the Company to provide first and second chance foreclosure auctions on Federal Housing Administration (“FHA”) loans, field services on Ocwen’s FHA, Veterans Affairs and United States Department of Agriculture loans, and title services on FHA and Veterans Affairs loans, subject to a process to confirm Altisource’s ability to meet reasonable performance requirements.
Service revenue from our Origination business grew by 11% in 2021 to $58.0 million compared to 2020. The Lenders One cooperative that we manage increased membership by 13% in 2021 and launched several new products, including an on-line solution designed to make it easier for Lenders One members to order and receive solutions through a single point of entry and to automate loan manufacturing processes.
Culture and Community Support
We function by a set of core values communicated by management to our employees and available on our website. The following core values, which are regularly referenced in our employee communications, guide the conduct of Altisource and its employees:

Act with IntegrityExhibit unwavering integrity, compliance and ethical conduct at all times

Energize PeopleEnable exceptional people to inspire their teams and drive results

Empower InnovationReward the relentless creation of innovative and compliant solutions to achieve our mission and generate value for our customers

Exceed Customer ExpectationsDeliver best-in-class results and customer service

Win as a TeamEmbrace the passion, energy and power of our global teams to win as “One-Altisource”

Enrich CommunitiesCreate positive impacts for the communities where we live and serve
While we continued to strive to create a positive impact in the communities where we live and serve, we adjusted our social and environmental engagement efforts in 2021 in response to the continued difficulties presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Proxy Summary   

In the United States, we undertook many successful community support initiatives, including our participation in the “Pledge to Safety” program created to implement additional safety measures to combat COVID-19; the “National Wreaths Across America,” supporting fallen veterans; and “Toys for Tots” and the Salvation Army “Angel Tree” programs which include donations and presents to children. In addition, we continued to provide funding and support to several charities, some of which are hosted by our valued clients. We donated to the Carrington Charitable Foundation which provides free air transportation to post-9/11 combat veterans and their families as well as to the Veterans Financial Services Advisory Council (VFSAC), which also supports veterans in their search for housing and critical services.

In India, we partnered with a leading non-profit organization, “Give India”, to provide ground level support and relief to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We donated funds to procure oxygen generating plants, medical equipment, and food. We also continued our partnerships with other non-governmental organizations such as Akshaya Patra to provide meals to underprivileged children and Kalike Trust to build sustainable processes to reduce infant mortality and improve mother and child health in rural Karnataka.

In Uruguay we provided food donations to soup kitchens.
Environment
We recognize the scientific consensus that climate change is a reality and that human activities are responsible for increasing the concentration of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere. We acknowledge that we have an impact on the environment through our operations and, in accordance with our Environmental Policy (available at http://www.altisource.com/environmental-policy), we are taking action to reduce such impact.
During 2021, we reduced the square footage of our locations by 33% and continued with our efforts to reduce the use of paper, energy, and water. In addition, upon a recommendation from the Company’s Corporate Responsibility Management Committee, the Board established a target of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared to 2019, the last year we were fully operational in our offices.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Proxy Summary

Refrigeration, air conditioning and fire suppression use materials which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. We will be identifying any possible opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint from these emissions.
In 2022 we intend to continue to assess our real estate portfolio, telecommuting and transport programs to evaluate ways to further reduce our impact on the environment, including by implementing and continuing to foster remote working arrangements.
Human Rights
We are committed to respect for human rights as described in our Human Rights Statement (available at www.altisource.com/humanrights). Among other things, this document reaffirms the Company’s commitment to respect all applicable legal rights of freedom of association and collective bargaining as applicable in the different locations where it operates, provide a safe and healthy workplace, foster socially responsible businesses in which women and minorities can participate on an equal basis, and adhere to applicable laws intended to promote human rights. Consistent with the principles set forth in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, and other policies and procedures, our Human Rights Statement prohibits forced labor and child labor.
Our Vendor Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (available at https://www.altisource.com/vendorscodeofconduct), which is generally made a part of our vendor agreements, requires vendors to embed respect for human rights into their business operations and prohibits: (i) the employment of child labor; and (ii) the use of any compulsory, involuntary or forced labor, which includes slavery, forced contract, human trafficking and any other form of work that is done against a worker’s will.
In 2021, we began asking our vendors to confirm whether or not they have enterprise-level human rights policies or similar documents in place, and to confirm if such documents address the protection of women’s and minorities’ rights and prohibit the use of forced labor and child labor. Vendors without such a document in place are offered the option of accepting and committing to our Human Rights Statement.
Workforce and Diversity
Given the nature of our business, our global workforce consists of various diverse talent groups. The majority of our employees support our Servicer and Origination solutions businesses. We also have a significant number of technology employees developing and maintaining our technology-enabled solutions. As of December 31, 2021, we had 2,024 employees. In the United States, in addition to supporting operations, a number of our employees fill roles that require professional licenses and work in product, sales and marketing, and corporate functions. The India workforce primarily comprises the teams that support operations, technology, and corporate functions, while the Uruguay workforce supports several corporate functions. The executive management team is largely based out of Luxembourg, our headquarters.
Our people practices aim to develop our workforce and retain high performers. We maintain various touchpoints along the employee life cycle to support our employees and improve their experiences. In 2021 we retained 68% of our workforce, which included the retention of 77% of employees deemed high performers. While this is lower than previous years, we believe that the drop in retention performance was primarily driven by strong external market conditions that increased demand for employees with similar skills. Our human resources team partnered with the businesses and support groups to implement a number of measures designed to support our employees, including regular touch points through town halls and team connects, survey tools to allow our workforce to provide feedback and several engagement activities that support keeping the employees ‘connected’ to the larger organization and build a sense of belongingness. We also introduced a renewed employee wellness calendar to support physical and mental well-being for our employees.
Our employees largely continued to work remotely in 2021, except for certain limited teams and functions. We plan to remain a largely remote workforce in the future.
We continued to emphasize employee development and training. Each of our employees on average undertook 40 hours of training in 2021, including a mix of functional, compliance and behavioral learning programs.
We regularly conduct employee talent reviews and succession planning exercises that help us identify and develop key talent and appropriate succession plans.

We believe that our globally diverse, inclusive, and collaborative workforce makes us a more innovative and creative company. We are an equal opportunity employer and our policies prohibit unlawful discrimination or harassment of any kind, including on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizen status, age, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), gender identity or expression (including transgender status), sexual orientation, genetic information, physical or mental disability, marital status, military service and veteran status or any other characteristic protected by applicable law. At Altisource, everyone is valued and appreciated for their distinct contributions to the growth and sustainability of our business. The same principles are included in our Vendor Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
54% of our workforce in the United States, and 42% of our workforce in Luxembourg, self-identify as members of ethnic minority groups.
We value diversity among our supply chain, the overall percentage of minority, LGBTQ+, disabled and veteran owned businesses that provide services to the Company has grown steadily over the past three years.
As highlighted in our Human Rights Statement, employee health and well-being is critical to us. We did not receive any formal employee complaints regarding health and safety during 2021, and to the best of our knowledge, we have not experienced any work-related accidents during the last two years.
As part of our support to our workforce in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ensure our employees in the United States and India have access to health benefits to help address medical costs related to the treatment of COVID-19. Our employees in Luxembourg and Uruguay are covered by their local applicable social security or health programs. To help provide a safe working environment for our employees working from our facilities in the United States, we continued and revised safety measures in line with guidance from the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local health departments, as applicable. For our employees who continue to work from our facilities in India, we established safety measures based on the guidelines provided by the regulatory bodies of the central and state governments and the local municipal corporations. We also hosted vaccination events in India, supporting our employees and their families in obtaining their COVID-19 vaccinations.
As a result of the extension and expansion of the national foreclosure and eviction moratoriums, and the anticipated continued impact to our Default related business, we made the difficult decision to reduce our global workforce in the first two quarters of 2021. There were also adjustments in the workforce for the

Origination business to better align our staffing levels to our operating model. These initiatives impacted approximately 10% of our global workforce through the year.
Shareholder Engagement
We seek to engage with our shareholders and analysts through our quarterly earnings calls, which typically follow our quarterly financial filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Additionally, during 2021, we periodically met with analysts and shareholders. We met with shareholders that collectively represent an estimated 65% of our outstanding shares, to discuss a variety of Company matters including strategy, business performance and operations, compensation practices, Board diversity and capital structure.
Board Composition and Experience
Our Board of Directors and Nomination/Governance Committee are committed to ensuring that the Board is comprised of directors who collectively provide a significant breadth of experience, the ability to effectively chart the strategic course of the Company, represent the interests of shareholders and reflect our corporate values of integrity and ethical conduct. Board diversity continued to be an area of focus during 2021. Our Board and Nomination/Governance Committee addressed this subject at several meetings during the course of the year and undertook efforts to recruit diverse director candidates with relevant experience. In March 2022, the Board appointed Mary C. Hickok to fill the vacant director position created by the resignation of Scott Burg from our Board.
All of our current directors have been nominated by the Board for reelection at the Annual Meeting.

Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. Joint Proxy Statement
Annual Meeting of Shareholders and Extraordinary Meeting of Shareholders
General Information
We have made this joint proxy statement available to you on or about April [ ], 2022 as a holder of common stock of Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (“Altisource” or the “Company”) because our Board of Directors is soliciting your proxy to be used at our Annual Meeting and our Extraordinary Meeting, and any adjournment or postponement thereof. The Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Central European Time for the purposes listed in the Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The Extraordinary Meeting will be held on the same day at 9:30 a.m. Central European Time for the purposes listed in the Notice of Extraordinary Meeting of Shareholders. Both meetings will be held at our registered office located at 33, Boulevard Prince Henri, L-1724 Luxembourg City, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Internet Availability of Proxy Materials
Consistent with historical practice, we are using the “Notice and Access” method of furnishing proxy materials to our beneficial shareholders via the Internet, instead of mailing printed copies of those materials to each shareholder. By doing so, we reduce the environmental impact of the meetings and save costs. On April [ ], 2022, we expect to commence mailing Notices of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Notices”) to participating shareholders. The Notice contains instructions about how to access our proxy materials. If you would like to receive a paper copy of our proxy materials, please follow the instructions included in the Notice. Beneficial shareholders, other than those who previously chose to receive our proxy materials in paper format, will receive an email with links to the online proxy materials. If you previously requested to receive paper copies of the proxy materials by mail, you will receive the proxy materials by mail until you elect otherwise.
Shareholders of record will receive a paper copy of the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting and the Extraordinary Meeting by mail except to the extent they previously requested or authorized delivery of proxy materials electronically. The proxy card included with the proxy materials contains instructions on how to request electronic delivery of future proxy materials for the Annual Meeting.
Who May Vote
You are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting and the Extraordinary Meeting, and any adjournment or postponement thereof, if you were a holder of our common stock at the close of business on March [25], 2022. At the close of business on March [25], 2022, there were [     ] shares of common stock issued, outstanding and able to be voted, and there was no other class of equity securities outstanding. Each share of our common stock is entitled to one (1) vote at the Annual Meeting and one (1) vote at the Extraordinary Meeting on all matters properly presented for a vote at such meetings.
Voting Procedures
If you are a shareholder of record, which means you hold your shares through an account with our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, you may vote by one of the following options:
For the Annual Meeting

Over the Internet, at http://www.proxyvote.com, by following the instructions on your proxy card or the instructions that you received by email; or

By completing, dating, signing and returning the proxy card by mail.
For the Extraordinary Meeting

By completing, dating, signing and returning the proxy card by mail.
If you are a beneficial holder, meaning you hold your shares in “street name” through an account with a bank or broker, please follow the voting directions on the voting instruction form that your bank or broker provides to you.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
 
Your ability to vote over the Internet depends on the voting procedures of your bank or broker.
If you vote over the Internet, your vote must be received by Altisource no later than 9:59 p.m. Central European Time (3:59 p.m. Eastern Time) on May 16, 2022 in order to allow sufficient time to tabulate the votes prior to the start of the meetings.
Shareholders may also vote in person at the meetings. All shareholders must present proof of share ownership as of the record date and valid government-issued photo identification to vote in person at the meetings. If your shares are held by a bank or broker, you must also obtain and present a “legal proxy” from the holder of record to vote at the meetings. For specific instructions, please refer to the proxy card, notice or email notification you receive.
Even if you plan to attend the meetings, we recommend that you vote your shares in advance of the meetings in one of the manners available to you so that your vote will be counted if later you are unable to attend or are limited to remote attendance.
How a Proxy Works
If you properly submit your proxy as instructed, and do not revoke it prior to its use, it will be voted in accordance with your instructions. Other than as discussed below with respect to “broker non-votes,” if no contrary instructions are given, each proxy received for the Annual Meeting will be voted “FOR” each of the nominees for Director named in this joint proxy statement and “FOR” each of the other proposals identified in the agenda for the Annual Meeting; each proxy received for the Extraordinary Meeting will be voted “FOR” the proposals identified in the agenda for the Extraordinary Meeting; and, with regard to any other business that properly comes before either meeting, each proxy will be voted in accordance with the discretion of the persons appointed as proxies.
If the shares you own are held by a bank or broker and you do not provide specific voting instructions to your bank or broker on a “non-routine” item as defined by the New York Stock Exchange, the bank or broker will be prohibited from voting your shares. This is commonly referred to as a “broker non-vote.” Only our proposal related to the appointment of our independent registered certified public accounting firm is routine; all other proposals are expected to be “non-routine” proposals. Therefore, if you do not instruct your bank or broker how to vote your shares with respect to non-routine proposals, your shares will not be voted on the non-routine proposals.
How to Revoke a Proxy
Your proxy may be used only at the relevant meetings and any adjournment or postponement thereof, and may not be used for any other meeting. You have the power to revoke your proxy at any time before it is exercised by:

providing written notice, received by our Corporate Secretary at the following address:
Gregory J. Ritts, Corporate Secretary
Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A.
33, Boulevard Prince Henri
L-1724 Luxembourg City
Grand Duchy of Luxembourg;

submitting a properly executed proxy bearing a later date; or

appearing at the relevant meeting and giving the Corporate Secretary notice of your intention to vote in person.
Quorum and Voting Information
Although Luxembourg law does not require a quorum for the conduct of business at the Annual Meeting, in accordance with the requirements of the Nasdaq listing standards, the Company has established that the presence at the Annual Meeting of holders of at least thirty-three and one-third percent (3313%) of our issued
 
16

TABLE OF CONTENTS
 
and outstanding shares of common stock able to be voted, represented in person or by proxy, will constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at the Annual Meeting.
For the transaction of business at the Extraordinary Meeting, the presence of holders of at least fifty percent (50%) of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock able to be voted will constitute a quorum in accordance with Luxembourg law. Under Luxembourg law, if a quorum is not reached at an extraordinary meeting for the purpose of resolving on the agenda thereof, the meeting may be adjourned or postponed to a later time at which time no quorum will be required, provided that certain notice procedures are fulfilled. In accordance with the requirements of the Nasdaq listing standards, in the event of such adjournment or postponement of the Extraordinary Meeting, the Company will require a quorum of thirty-three and one-third percent (33 1/3%) of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock able to be voted for the transaction of business. Abstentions and “broker non-votes” will be treated as present for purposes of a quorum.
Assuming a quorum, each of the five (5) nominees for Director will be elected as a Director of Altisource at the Annual Meeting so long as the votes cast in favor of such nominee exceeds the votes cast against such nominee. You may vote for, against or abstain from voting for one (1) or more nominees for Director.
The following Annual Meeting proposals will be approved if the votes cast in favor of the action exceed the votes cast against the action: (i) the proposal to approve the appointment of Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. to be our independent registered certified public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022 and Atwell S.à r.l. to be our certified auditor (Réviseur d’Entreprises) for all statutory accounts as required by Luxembourg law for the same period; (ii) the proposal to approve the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021; (iii) the proposal to receive and approve the Directors’ reports for the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts for the year ended December 31, 2021 and to receive the report of the supervisory auditor (Commissaire aux Comptes) for the Luxembourg Annual Accounts for the same period; (iv) the proposal to allocate the results in the Luxembourg Annual Accounts for the year ended December 31, 2021; (v) the proposal to approve the discharge of each of the Directors of Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. for the performance of their mandates during the year ended December 31, 2021 and of the supervisory auditor (Commissaire aux Comptes) for the performance of her mandate for the same period; and (vi) any other matter properly submitted for your consideration at the Annual Meeting. Because the advisory vote to approve the compensation of Altisource’s named executive officers as disclosed in the Proxy Statement (“Say-on-Pay”) is non-binding and advisory in nature, there is no required number of votes that would constitute approval. While the results of the Say-on-Pay vote are not binding on the Company, our Board of Directors intends to carefully consider the shareholder votes resulting from the Say-on-Pay proposal.
Assuming a quorum, the following Extraordinary Meeting proposals will be approved if the votes cast in favor of the action exceed two-thirds of the shares validly voted: (i) the proposal to (a) amend the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to renew and extend the current authorization of the Board of Directors to issue shares of the Company’s common stock, within the limits of the Company’s authorized share capital of one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) which includes the current authorization and, in connection with any such issuance, to limit or cancel the preferential subscription rights of shareholders, each for a period of five (5) years, and (b) receive the report issued by the Board of Directors pursuant to article 420-26 (5) of the Luxembourg Law of 10 August 1915 on commercial companies, as amended (the “Luxembourg Company Law”); and (ii) the proposal to amend the relevant provisions of the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to effectuate recent changes in the Luxembourg Company Law, in particular further to the Luxembourg regulation dated 5 December 2017 coordinating such act, and make certain other administrative changes as set forth in the proposed amended provisions of the Articles of Incorporation; and (iii) any other matter properly submitted for your consideration at the Extraordinary Meeting.
Any other matter properly submitted for your consideration will be approved with such vote as required by Luxembourg law. Abstentions and broker non-votes will not be counted in determining the number of votes cast in connection with the proposals on the agendas of the Annual Meeting and Extraordinary Meeting.

PROPOSALS TO BE CONSIDERED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
Proposal One: Election of Directors
Our Articles of Incorporation provide that our Board of Directors shall consist of no less than three (3) and no more than seven (7) members, with the exact number to be decided by our shareholders.

All nominees other than Mr. Aldridge currently serve as our Directors. There are no arrangements or understandings between any nominee and any other person for selection as a nominee.
If any nominee is unable or unwilling to stand for election at the time of the Annual Meeting, the shares represented by a validly executed proxy will be voted for the election of such other person as the Board of Directors may recommend in place of such nominee, unless the Board of Directors chooses to reduce the number of Directors serving on the Board.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS
THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” EACH OF THE NOMINEES FOR DIRECTOR

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Board of Directors and Corporate Governance
Meetings of the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors (also referred to herein as the “Board”) plays an active role in overseeing the Company’s business and representing the interests of the Company and its shareholders. Directors generally attend all meetings of the Board of Directors and all meetings of Committees on which they serve. Directors are also consulted for advice and counsel between formal meetings.
Our Board of Directors met ten (10) times and took action pursuant to written consent one (1) time in 2021. During 2021, each of our Directors attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of Board meetings and meetings of the Committees on which they served during their applicable period of service.
Independence of Directors
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that a majority of our Directors must qualify as independent Directors under the Nasdaq listing standards and applicable law.
Our Board of Directors annually reviews the direct and indirect relationships that the Company has with each Director. The purpose of this review is to determine whether any transactions or relationships are inconsistent with a determination that the Director is independent. Only those Directors who are determined by our Board of Directors to have no material relationship with Altisource are considered independent. This determination is based in part on the analysis of questionnaire responses that follow the independence standards and qualifications established by the Nasdaq and applicable law. The Board of Directors also considers beneficial ownership of our common stock by each of the Directors in its analysis, as set forth under “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management,” although our Board of Directors generally believes that stock ownership tends to further align a Director’s interests with those of our other shareholders. Please see “Minimum Stock Ownership Requirements” under the Board of Directors Compensation section for additional information.
The Board of Directors has determined that all of our current Directors other than Mr. Shepro are independent under the Nasdaq listing standards. Mr. Shepro is deemed not to be independent because he serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Altisource. The Board of Directors has determined that upon his election, Mr. Aldridge will also qualify as independent.
Executive Sessions of Independent Directors
Our independent Directors met in executive session of the Board of Directors without management four (4) times in 2021.
Board Leadership Structure
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that the Board may appoint a lead independent director unless the Chairman of the Board is an independent director. Mr. Shepro, our Chairman of the Board, is also our Chief Executive Officer, and, as a result, the Board believes that it is in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders to appoint a lead independent director. Mr. Müller-Ineichen currently serves as Lead Independent Director. The lead independent director, among other responsibilities, presides over periodic meetings at which only our independent directors are present, serves as a liaison between the independent directors and the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and performs such duties as our Board may otherwise determine from time to time.
The Board of Directors appointed Mr. Shepro as Chairman of the Board in May 2019. Our Board believes that it is appropriate to combine the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at this time due to Mr. Shepro’s critical role in our strategy, his experience with the Company and its customers, and his longevity with the Company. Mr. Shepro is responsible for the design, in consultation with the Board of Directors, and execution of the Company’s strategic plan. Our Board of Directors believes that he is the appropriate person to serve as its Chairman.

Board of Directors and Corporate Governance   
Committees of the Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors has established an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee, a Compliance Committee, a Nomination/Governance Committee and an Executive Committee. Except as otherwise required by applicable laws or rules, the Committees’ responsibilities and procedures are designed to remain flexible, so that they may be in a position to best react or respond to changing circumstances or conditions. A brief description of each committee is provided below.
Audit Committee.   The Audit Committee of our Board of Directors: (i) oversees the relationship with our independent registered certified public accounting firm and certified auditor; (ii) provides assistance to our Board of Directors with respect to matters involving the accounting, auditing, financial reporting and internal control functions; (iii) establishes procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints and allegations received by the Company relating to the financial reporting process and our system of accounting, internal accounting controls, auditing and federal securities law matters; (iv) reviews and approves transactions in which a “Related Person” ​(as defined by SEC Regulation S-K and in accordance with the Company’s Related Person Transactions Policy) has a material interest; (v) reviews the scope and results of the annual audit conducted by the independent registered certified public accounting firm, including any significant matters regarding internal controls over financial reporting; and (vi) reviews the Company’s internal audit plan, internal audit budget and risk management report on an annual basis. The Audit Committee is also empowered to retain, at the Company’s expense, such independent counsel or other advisors as it deems necessary in connection with its responsibilities.
The members of the Audit Committee during 2021 were Messrs. Müller-Ineichen, Burg and Morettini, with Mr. Müller-Ineichen serving as the Committee Chair. Mr. Burg resigned as a member of the Compensation Committee effective March 1, 2022, upon his resignation from the Board of Directors. Following Mr. Burg’s resignation from the Board and Ms. Hickok’s appointment in March 2022, Ms. Hickok became a member of the Audit Committee. Each member of our Audit Committee is independent as defined in regulations adopted by the SEC and the Nasdaq listing standards. Our Board of Directors has determined that all members of our Audit Committee are financially literate, possess accounting or related financial management experience that results in the individual’s financial sophistication within the meaning of the Nasdaq listing standards, and qualify as audit committee financial experts as that term is defined in SEC rules. Pursuant to the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, no director may serve as a member of the Audit Committee if such director serves on the audit committee of more than two other public companies, unless the Board determines that such simultaneous service would not impair the ability of such director to effectively serve on the Audit Committee.
Our Audit Committee operates under a written charter approved by our Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on our website at www.altisource.com and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. On an annual basis, the Audit Committee reviews its charter and presents any recommendations for amendments to the Board. The Audit Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and delivers a report to the Board setting forth the results of its evaluation, including an assessment of the adequacy of its charter. The charter was last reviewed by the Audit Committee in December 2021. The Audit Committee met ten (10) times in 2021. The Audit Committee met in executive session simultaneously with the Company’s internal and external auditors three (3) times, solely with the Company’s internal auditors one (1) time and solely with the Company’s external auditors four (4) times in 2021.
Compensation Committee.   The Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors oversees our compensation and employee benefit plans and practices. Our Compensation Committee also evaluates and makes recommendations to our Board of Directors for compensation and other human resources matters relating to our executive officers. The Compensation Committee reviews and subsequently approves all executive compensation programs, any severance or termination arrangements applicable to executive officers and any equity compensation plans that are not subject to shareholder approval. The Compensation Committee also has the power to review our other compensation plans, including the goals and objectives thereof. The Compensation Committee is responsible for reviewing Director compensation and recommending changes, subject to the approval of our shareholders. The Compensation Committee has the authority to administer awards under our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan.
The Compensation Committee may request that any of our Directors, executive officers, employees or others attend its meetings to provide advice, counsel or pertinent information as the Committee requests. Certain

executives are involved in the design and implementation of our executive compensation program. Our Chief Executive Officer generally attends Compensation Committee meetings, except that he is not present during any voting or deliberations related to his own compensation. Mr. Shepro actively participated in performance determinations and compensation discussions for other executive officers, including making recommendations to the Compensation Committee as to the amount and form of compensation. The Compensation Committee exercises its discretion in accepting, rejecting or modifying any such executive compensation recommendations. The Compensation Committee will generally delegate executive compensation matters (other than for Named Executive Officers) to the Chief Executive Officer for execution and, in limited circumstances, further development following approval by the Committee.
In addition, the Compensation Committee has delegated authority to the Chief Executive Officer to approve equity awards of up to 5,000 stock options or 5,000 restricted shares (or similar equity instrument) per employee (other than Named Executive Officers), with an exercise price of up to $50 per share and in an aggregate amount of up to 75,000 stock options or restricted shares (or similar equity instrument) per calendar year. Awards approved by the Chief Executive Officer pursuant to this delegation are reported to the Compensation Committee on a regular basis.
The Compensation Committee is also empowered to retain independent compensation consultants, counsel or other advisors as it deems necessary in connection with its responsibilities at the Company’s expense. In determining whether a compensation consultant, counsel or other advisor is independent, the Compensation Committee considers all factors set forth in SEC rules and the Nasdaq listing standards with respect to advisor independence, as well as any other factors the Compensation Committee deems relevant.
The members of the Compensation Committee during 2021 were Messrs. Burg, Morettini and Müller-Ineichen, with Mr. Burg serving as the Committee Chair until his resignation as a member of the Compensation Committee effective March 1, 2022, upon his resignation from the Board of Directors. Following Mr. Burg’s resignation from the Board and Ms. Hickok’s appointment in March 2022, Ms. Hickok became a member and the Chair of the Compensation Committee.
Each member of the Compensation Committee is independent as defined by the Nasdaq listing standards, as revised in 2013. While we have no specific qualification requirements for members of the Compensation Committee, our members have knowledge and experience regarding compensation matters as developed through their respective business experience in both management and advisory roles, including general business management, executive compensation and employee benefits experience. We believe that their collective achievements and knowledge provide us with extensive diversity in experience, culture and viewpoints.
Our Compensation Committee operates under a written charter approved by our Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on our website at www.altisource.com and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. On an annual basis, the Compensation Committee reviews its charter and presents any recommendations for amendments to the Board. The Compensation Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and delivers a report to the Board setting forth the results of its evaluation, including an assessment of the adequacy of its charter. The charter was last reviewed by the Compensation Committee in December 2021. The Compensation Committee met six (6) times and took action pursuant to written consent one (1) time in 2021.
Compliance Committee.   The Compliance Committee of our Board of Directors assists the Board of Directors with developing, monitoring and evaluating the Company’s compliance function, including its compliance management system, and the Company’s compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations governing its businesses. The Compliance Committee performs such other duties as may be prescribed pursuant to its charter. The members of the Compliance Committee for 2021 were Messrs.

of its charter. The charter was last reviewed by the Compliance Committee in December 2021. The Compliance Committee met four (4) times in 2021.
Nomination/Governance Committee.   The Nomination/Governance Committee of our Board of Directors makes recommendations to the Board of individuals qualified to serve as Directors and committee members for our Board of Directors, advises the Board with respect to Board composition, procedures and committees, develops and presents our Board of Directors with a set of corporate governance guidelines and oversees the evaluation of our Board of Directors. The Nomination/Governance Committee may retain, at the Company’s expense, such independent counsel or other advisors as it deems necessary.
The members of the Nomination/Governance Committee during 2021 were Messrs. Burg, Morettini and Müller-Ineichen, with Mr. Morettini serving as the Committee Chair. Mr. Burg resigned as a member of the Nomination/Governance Committee effective March 1, 2022, upon his resignation from the Board of Directors. Each member of the Nomination/Governance Committee is independent as defined by the Nasdaq listing standards.
Our Nomination/Governance Committee operates under a written charter approved by our Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on our website at www.altisource.com and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. On an annual basis, the Nomination/Governance Committee reviews its charter and presents any recommendations for amendments to the Board. The Nomination/Governance Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and delivers a report to the Board setting forth the results of its evaluation, including an assessment of the adequacy of its charter. The charter was last reviewed by the Nomination/Governance Committee in December 2021. The Nomination/Governance Committee met four (4) times in 2021.
The Nomination/Governance Committee regularly assesses the appropriate size of the Board of Directors and whether any vacancies on the Board are anticipated. The Nomination/Governance Committee then identifies various potential candidates for Director. Candidates may come to the attention of the Nomination/Governance Committee through current members of the Board of Directors, professional search firms, shareholders or industry sources.
When recommending nominees to the Board, the Nomination/Governance Committee considers candidates based on merit, against objective criteria relating to the candidate’s knowledge, experience, skills and expertise, with due regard for the benefits of diversity on the Board of Directors. In considering diversity, the Nomination/Governance Committee considers differences that relate to gender, age, ethnicity, race, national origin, cultural background, disability, religion and other relevant personal distinctions. The Nomination/Governance Committee assesses the effectiveness of our Board Diversity policy as part of its annual review of the composition of our Board of Directors and considers the results of this assessment when evaluating director nominees. Our Board Diversity Policy is available on our website at www.altisource.com.
In evaluating a particular candidate, the Nomination/Governance Committee will also consider factors other than the candidate’s qualifications and background, including: (i) the current composition of the Board of Directors and the interplay of the candidate’s experience with the backgrounds of the current members of our Board of Directors; (ii) whether the candidate meets the independence standards set forth under applicable laws, regulations and the Nasdaq listing standards; (iii) the balance of management and independent Directors; (iv) the need for Audit Committee expertise; and (v) the evaluation of other prospective nominees.
In connection with this evaluation, one or more members of the Nomination/Governance Committee, and others as appropriate, will interview prospective nominees. After completing the evaluation and interviews, the Nomination/Governance Committee makes a recommendation to the full Board of Directors as to the persons who should be nominated by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors determines whether the candidates will be nominated and presented to the shareholders for election, after considering the recommendation and report of the Nomination/Governance Committee.
The Nomination/Governance Committee considers director candidates recommended by shareholders. If you want to recommend persons for consideration by our Nomination/Governance Committee as nominees for election to our Board of Directors, you can do so by writing to our Corporate Secretary at Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A., 33, Boulevard Prince Henri, L-1724 Luxembourg City, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Should you recommend a qualified candidate for Director, our Nomination/Governance Committee would evaluate such candidate in the same manner that it evaluates any other candidate. You should provide each proposed

nominee’s name, biographical data, qualifications and expertise. Your recommendation should also include a written statement from the proposed nominee consenting to be named as a nominee and, if nominated and elected, to serve as a Director. Any recommendation that a shareholder desires to have included in our proxy materials for consideration at our 2023 annual meeting of shareholders must be received at our registered office no later than December 5, 2022. Please see the “Shareholder Rights” and “Shareholder Proposals” sections for additional information regarding shareholder proposals.
Our Nomination/Governance Committee addressed the subject of Board diversity in several meetings during the course of the year and undertook efforts to recruit a diverse director candidate with relevant experience in the mortgage industry. At the recommendation of the Nomination/Governance Committee, in March 2022, the Board of Directors appointed Mary C. Hickok to fill the vacant director position created by the resignation of Scott Burg from our Board.
Executive Committee.   Our Executive Committee generally acts on behalf of our Board of Directors during the intervals between meetings of our Board of Directors and otherwise assists the Board in handling matters that, in the opinion of the Chairman of the Board, should not be postponed until the next scheduled meeting of the Board. The members of our Executive Committee during 2021 were Messrs. Shepro and Müller-Ineichen, with Mr. Müller-Ineichen serving as the Committee Chair.
Our Executive Committee operates under a written charter approved by our Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on our website at www.altisource.com and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. On an annual basis, the Executive Committee reviews and approves its charter and presents any recommendations for amendments to the Board. The Executive Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and delivers a report to the Board setting forth the results of its evaluation, provided that such performance evaluation shall not be necessary where minimal action was taken during the year. The charter was last reviewed by the Executive Committee in December 2021. The Executive Committee did not meet and took no action pursuant to written consent in 2021.
Corporate Governance Guidelines
The Corporate Governance Guidelines adopted by our Board of Directors provide guidelines for effective corporate governance and to promote the effective functioning of the Board and its Committees. The Corporate Governance Guidelines cover topics such as Director qualification standards, Board of Directors and committee composition, Director responsibilities, minimum stock ownership requirements for our non-management Directors and our Chief Executive Officer, anti-hedging and anti-pledging policies, Director access to management and independent advisors, Director compensation, Director orientation and continuing education, management succession and annual performance reviews of the Board of Directors.
Our Nomination/Governance Committee reviews our Corporate Governance Guidelines at least once a year and, if necessary, recommends changes to the Corporate Governance Guidelines to our Board of Directors. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines were last reviewed by the Nomination/Governance Committee in December 2021. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines are available on our website at www.altisource.com.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Board of Directors and Corporate Governance   

No Shareholder Rights Plan:   Altisource does not maintain a shareholder rights plan (sometimes called a “poison pill”)
The Board of Directors and its Committees monitor developments in governance best practices to assure that the Board continues to meet its commitment to represent shareholder interests.
Shareholder Engagement
Engagement with our shareholders helps us gain useful feedback on a wide variety of relevant topics, which may include corporate governance, compensation practices, Board diversity, capital structure, business performance and the strategy of the Company. If such feedback is received, it is shared regularly with the Company’s management and the Board and may be considered in setting the governance practices and strategic direction for the Company. Shareholder feedback may also help us to better tailor the public information we provide to address the interests and inquiries of our shareholders and other interested parties.
Altisource from time to time interacts and communicates with shareholders in a number of forums, including quarterly earnings presentations, SEC filings, investor conferences and meetings and press releases. In furtherance of the Company’s commitment to constructive communication and engagement with shareholders, the Company’s policy regarding communications by shareholders and other interested parties with the Board of Directors is designed to promote effective engagement with shareholders and clearly outline the parameters for such engagement.
Shareholders who wish to contact our Board of Directors or any individual Director regarding Altisource may do so by mail addressed to our Corporate Secretary at Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A., 33, Boulevard Prince Henri, L-1724 Luxembourg City, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg or by email to the Office of the Corporate Secretary at corporate.secretary@altisource.lu. Relevant communications received in writing are distributed to our Board of Directors or to individual Directors, as appropriate, depending on the facts and circumstances outlined in the communication received.
Code of Ethics
We have a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to our Directors, officers and employees as required by the Nasdaq listing standards. We also have a Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers that applies to our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and the members of the Chief Financial Officer’s financial leadership team. The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and the Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers are available on our website at www.altisource.com. On an annual basis, the Board of Directors reviews and approves the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and the Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers. The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics was last reviewed by the Board of Directors in December 2021 and the Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers was last reviewed by the Board of Directors in December 2021. Any amendments to the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics or the Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers, as well as any waivers that are required to be disclosed under SEC rules or the Nasdaq listing standards, must be approved by our Board of Directors or the Audit Committee and will be posted on our website at www.altisource.com or otherwise disclosed in accordance with such rules.
Risk Management and Oversight Process
Our Board of Directors and its Committees play a key role in the oversight of the Company’s risk management.
Through regular reviews with management and internal and external auditors, the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee monitor Altisource’s enterprise risks, including credit risk, liquidity risk, operational risk and legal and regulatory risk. In its periodic meetings with internal and external auditors, the Audit Committee discusses the scope and plan for the internal audit department and, in conjunction with management, considers whether accounting and financial controls are aligned with business risks. In its periodic meetings with the external auditors, the Audit Committee reviews the external audit scope, the external auditors’ responsibilities and independence under the Standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”), accounting policies and practices and other required communications.
Our Audit Committee annually performs, and reports to the Board of Directors on, an enterprise risk assessment with management to review the principal risks that could adversely affect our business, and to monitor the

Board of Directors and Corporate Governance   
steps management is taking to map and mitigate these risks. This enterprise risk assessment reviews: (i) operational risks; (ii) financial risks; (iii) legal and regulatory compliance risks; (iv) reputational risks; (v) technology risks; (vi) privacy risks; (vii) data security (including cybersecurity) risks; (viii) strategic risks; and (ix) other risks that could adversely affect our business.
Our Board of Directors and Compliance Committee monitor the overall compliance function, including the compliance management system, and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and related risks, through regular reviews with management. At least quarterly, our Compliance Committee reviews and discusses with management the Company’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and compliance programs.
In addition, working closely with management, our Nomination/Governance Committee assists our Board of Directors in monitoring the Company’s governance and succession risks, and our Compensation Committee assists our Board of Directors in monitoring the Company’s compensation policies and related risks.
The role of our Board of Directors in risk oversight is consistent with the Company’s leadership structure, with the Chief Executive Officer and other members of management having responsibility for assessing and managing the Company’s risk exposure, and the Board of Directors and its Committees providing oversight of the management of these risks.
Hedging
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines prohibit our executive officers from pledging or otherwise encumbering shares of the Company’s common stock as collateral for indebtedness and from entering into any transaction that is designed to hedge or offset any decrease in the market value of the Company’s common stock. We also maintain a Management Directive (Management Directive No. 5: Prevention of Insider Trading and Other Prohibitions) detailing our trading window period policy and our insider trading policy, which contains similar prohibitions.
Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability and Human Rights
Altisource’s Corporate Responsibility Management Committee oversees the policies, procedures and strategies regarding corporate responsibility, sustainability and environment. The Committee typically meets quarterly and includes our Chief Legal and Compliance Officer, Chief Financial Officer and other key operational executives. Our Board of Directors oversees the Corporate Responsibility Management Committee and receives regular updates on the effectiveness of our corporate responsibility initiatives.
At the recommendation of the Corporate Responsibility Management Committee, in December 2021, the Board of Directors established a target of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared to 2019, the last year we were fully operational in our offices.

Board of Directors Compensation
Compensation Arrangements for Non-Management Directors
Altisource’s director compensation program is designed to attract and retain highly qualified non-management directors. Our Compensation Committee believes that compensation for non-management directors should consist of both equity and cash to compensate members for their service on the Board of Directors and its committees and to align their interests with our shareholders.
In line with our philosophy that the interests of our Directors should align with the interests of our shareholders, and to encourage active membership, non-management Directors who attend at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of the Board of Directors and Committees on which they serve are entitled to receive an award of shares of our common stock at the end of the applicable service year based on an award value periodically approved by our shareholders. We determine the number of shares to be granted by dividing the award value by the average of the high and low prices of our common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the first day of the service year.
For the 2020 to 2021 service year, each of our non-management Directors who attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of the Board of Directors and Committees on which they served received 12,786 shares of our common stock at the end of the service year, based on an award value of $120,000 divided by the average of the high and low prices of the common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 20, 2020 (the first day of the 2020 to 2021 service year).
For the 2021 to 2022 service year, our non-management Directors who attend at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of the Board and Committees on which they serve will receive 17,180 shares of common stock at the end of the service year, based on an award value of $120,000, divided by the average of the high and low prices of the common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 19, 2021 (the first day of the 2021 to 2022 service year). Since Mr. Burg attended all of the meetings for the 2021 to 2022 service year while he served on the Board, he will receive 13,462 shares of common stock, based on a prorated award value of $94,030. Because Ms. Hickok has attended all of the meetings since her election to the Board, she will receive 3,718 shares of common stock, based on a prorated award value of $25,970.
In addition, in line with our philosophy that the interests of our Directors should be aligned with those of our shareholders, new non-management Directors are granted a one-time award of 500 restricted shares of common stock, which are scheduled to vest in four (4) equal installments, with the initial portion vesting on the date of the annual meeting following the award and vesting continuing on the dates of the next three (3) annual meetings.
As approved by our shareholders at our 2016 annual meeting of shareholders, each non-management member of our Board of Directors also receives the following annual cash compensation, in quarterly installments:

a retainer of $54,000;

an additional $100,000 to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, if not a member of the Company’s management(1);

an additional $25,000 to the Audit Committee Chair;

an additional $17,500 to the Compliance Committee Chair;

an additional $15,000 to the Compensation Committee Chair;

an additional $12,500 to the Nomination/Governance Committee Chair;

an additional $10,000 to all Audit Committee members (other than the Audit Committee Chair);

an additional $10,000 to all Compliance Committee members (other than the Compliance Committee Chair);

an additional $7,500 to all Compensation Committee members (other than the Compensation Committee Chair); and

As a management Director, our current Chairman of the Board does not receive an annual retainer or any other additional compensation for his service on the Board of Directors

Board of Directors Compensation   

an additional $5,000 to all Nomination/Governance Committee members (other than the Nomination/ Governance Committee Chair).
The Company also pays or reimburses our Directors for their reasonable travel, lodging, food and other expenses related to their attendance at Board, Committee or shareholder meetings or other corporate functions. In response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, in April 2020 the cash compensation of the independent members of the Board was reduced by 50% for six months; in October 2020, the cash compensation of the independent members of the Board was adjusted to 80% of the pre-reduction cash compensation. Effective December 2021, the cash compensation of the independent members of the Board was adjusted to 100% of the applicable pre-reduction cash compensation.
Certain Directors are also required to file Luxembourg tax returns in connection with the compensation that they receive as Directors of Altisource. In connection with this requirement, as approved by our shareholders at the 2018 Annual Meeting, the Company pays for tax preparation services for any Luxembourg tax returns that must be filed by non-resident Directors as a result of their membership on the Board of Directors of Altisource.
Non-Management Director Compensation for 2021
The following table summarizes: (i) cash compensation earned in 2021 by each non-management member of our Board of Directors who served as a Director during 2021; (ii) stock awards made to our non-management Directors in 2021 for their service in the 2020 to 2021 service year; and (iii) any other compensation received in 2021. Mr. Shepro, as a member of the Company’s management, does not receive an annual retainer or any other additional compensation for his service on the Board of Directors.

Cash compensation for our non-management directors is established on a “service year” basis running from one annual meeting of shareholders to the next annual meeting of shareholders and is paid in equal installments at the end of each quarter during which the non-management director served as a member of our Board of Directors. Director compensation may be prorated for a Director serving less than a full one (1) year term, as in the case of a Director joining the Board of Directors after an annual meeting of shareholders but during the service year. This table shows the amounts earned for service in 2021, including amounts earned for service in the fourth quarter of 2021 and paid in the first quarter of 2022.

Non-management Directors who attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of the Board of Directors and Committees on which they served for the 2020 to 2021 service year were entitled to receive an award of Altisource common stock at the end of such service year. The number of shares of common stock was determined by dividing $120,000 by the average of the high and low prices of the common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the first day of the service year. This table shows the aggregate award date fair value of such shares on the date awarded in May 2021.

On the date of his initial election to our Board of Directors, Mr. Burg received a one-time grant of 500 shares of common stock. This award was scheduled to vest in four (4) equal installments beginning on the date of the 2019 annual meeting of shareholders and the final installment vesting on the date of the 2022 annual meeting of shareholders, subject to Mr. Burg’s continued service on the Board. Due to Mr. Burg’s resignation from the Board of Directors on March 1, 2022, the final installment will not vest. All cash compensation related to Mr. Burg’s service as a Director was paid to STS Master Fund, Ltd.

Mr. Müller-Ineichen’s cash compensation was paid in euros, using the following exchange rates that were in effect on the 15th day of the last month of the quarter for which the payment was made: for the first quarter 2021, an exchange rate of 0.83794 euros to the U.S. dollar; for the second quarter 2021, an exchange rate of 0.82474 euros to the U.S. dollar; for the third quarter 2021, an exchange rate of 0.84642 euros to the U.S. dollar and for the fourth quarter, an exchange rate of 0.88735 euros to the U.S. dollar. The cash amounts reported herein are the U.S. dollar amounts prior to conversion to euros.

Board of Directors Compensation   
Minimum Stock Ownership Requirements
To further align our non-management Directors’ interests with those of our shareholders, our Board of Directors has adopted minimum stock ownership requirements for non-management Directors. Pursuant to these ownership requirements, each non-management Director is required to attain and maintain stock ownership at a level equal to three times his or her annual cash retainer. The minimum number of shares is determined as of the date of such person’s initial election as a non-management director, or if elected prior to the policy’s adoption, the date when he or she first became subject to this policy. Each non-management Director has two years from the effective date of his or her initial election or from the date on which he or she first becomes subject to the policy, whichever is later, to comply with these requirements. The minimum stock ownership level will not change as a result of fluctuations in the market price of the Company’s common stock. Incremental increases in the level of required stock ownership will be determined as of the effective date of any increase in the annual cash retainer paid to non-management Directors. Each of our Directors either currently meets the applicable minimum stock ownership requirements or is expected to come into compliance with these requirements within the period noted above. The minimum stock ownership requirements for our non-management Directors and our Chief Executive Officer are set forth in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which are available on our website at www.altisource.com.
