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 2023 performance. Please refer to our 2023 Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for a more complete description of our 2023 performance.
Corporate and Financial

Spent 2023 focused on building a product and sales pipeline, improving operational efficiencies, reducing costs, and strengthening the balance sheet as the Company continued to seek to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, governmental moratoriums and loss mitigation measures that affect the timing of the recovery of the market for default-related services

Improved total Company loss from operations by $16.4 million in 2023 compared to 2022 by (i) improving operating income as a percentage of service revenue in the Servicer and Real Estate and Origination segments to 19.1% in 2023 from 13.2% in 2022, and (ii) reducing the operating loss from certain corporate functions as a percentage of total Company service revenue to (31.4)% in 2023 from (36.1)% in 2022, primarily through efficiency initiatives and cost savings measures

Amended the senior secured term loans and revolving credit facility to, among other things, extend the maturity dates to April 2025, with the Company’s option to extend the maturity dates to April 2026, subject to certain conditions. The conditions to the extensions to April 2026 include (i) par paydown of the senior secured term loans of at least $30 million, which condition was satisfied in September 2023, (ii) payment of

a 2% payment-in-kind extension fee on or before April 30, 2025, (iii) representations and warranties being true and correct as of such date, and (iv) there being no default or event of default as of such date

Generated $38.8 million in net proceeds from the sale of common stock and used $30 million to partially repay the term loans; details are as follows:

On February 14, 2023, we closed on an underwritten public offering to sell 4,550,000 shares of our common stock (inclusive of 550,000 shares that were sold pursuant to the underwriters’ full exercise of their option to purchase additional shares of common stock), out of our treasury shares, at a price of $5.00 per share, generating net proceeds of approximately $21.2 million, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses; we used $20 million of the net proceeds to repay the term loans

On September 12, 2023, we closed an underwritten public offering of 5,590,277 shares of our common stock (inclusive of 729,166 shares that were sold pursuant to the underwriters’ exercise of their option to purchase additional shares), out of our treasury shares, at a price to the public of $3.60 per share, generating net proceeds of approximately $18.3 million, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses; we used $10 million of the net proceeds to repay the term loans

As of the Record Date, Altisource holds 3,010,088 shares of common stock as treasury shares under Luxembourg law

Ended the year with $32.5 million of cash and cash equivalents, $15.0 million available under a revolving credit facility and $191.6 million of net debt
Business Segments

In the face of serious market headwinds, service revenue in the Servicer and Real Estate segment was only down 4% and service revenue in the Origination segment outperformed the overall market with a decline of 11% compared to a 36% decline in industrywide residential origination volume

Improved income from operations in the Business Segments by $7.0 million to $26.1 million, representing 19.1% of service revenue, in 2023 compared to $19.0 million, representing 13.2% of service revenue, in 2022, primarily through efficiency and cost cutting initiatives

Ended 2023 with a weighted average sales pipeline between $43 million and $53 million of potential estimated revenue on a stabilized basis based upon forecasted probability of closing (comprised of between $27 million and $33 million in the Servicer and Real Estate segment and between $16 million and $20 million in the Origination segment)

Generated 2023 sales wins which we estimate represent potential annualized revenue on a stabilized basis of $58.4 million for the Servicer and Real Estate segment and $10.3 million for the Origination segment
Industry:

Industrywide foreclosure initiations were 4% lower in 2023 compared to 2022 (and 31% lower than the same pre-COVID-19 period in 2019)

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Proxy Summary   

Vision statement: Drive innovation that powers the mortgage and real estate lifecycle.

Mission statement: To be the trusted provider of mortgage and real estate solutions that help our customers thrive.

Our Core Values:

Act with Integrity—Exhibit unwavering integrity, compliance and ethical conduct at all times

Energize People—Enable exceptional people to inspire their teams and drive results

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

Exceed Customer Expectations—Deliver best-in-class results and customer service

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

Enrich Communities—Create positive impacts for the communities where we live and serve
To create a positive impact in the communities where we live and serve, we undertook several initiatives to support the underprivileged.
In the United States, we sponsored numerous events and charitable organizations supporting and addressing the housing needs of veterans. We also partnered with a foundation to help provide scholarships to teen cancer survivors.
In India, we partnered with the Sankalp India Foundation to help provide equipment for the Blood and Thalassemia Centre, provided medicine support for 451 children and provided partial support toward bone marrow transplants for 11 children. We also continued to partner with the Akshaya Patra Foundation, to provide meals to underprivileged students.
During 2023, we did not use corporate funds for the purpose of political advocacy or campaign contributions.
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 and our vendors impact the environment through our activities, in particular those related to transport and selection of materials, employee and vendor travel, and disposal of IT assets. In accordance with our Environmental Policy (available at http://www.altisource.com/environmental-policy), we are taking action to reduce such impact and our vendor code of conduct requires our vendors to comply with the same Environmental Policy.
A substantial portion of carbon emissions associated with employees commuting to and from work locations was eliminated due to our transition to remote work for most employees.
During 2023, we reduced the square footage of our office locations and continued with our efforts to reduce the use of paper, energy, and water, and achieved our goal of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 10% compared to 2022.
At the recommendation of the Corporate Responsibility Management Committee, our Board of Directors established a 2024 target of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 5% compared to 2023.

We have undertaken several efforts to reduce and mitigate these risks and remain committed to the respect of human rights as described in our Human Rights Statement (available at www.altisource.com/humanrights).

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. We have developed policies and procedures to establish and foster an equal opportunity and non-discrimination culture.
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.
Workforce and Diversity
Our global workforce consists of various diverse talent groups. The majority of our employees support our Servicer and Real Estate, and Origination businesses; we also have a significant number of technology employees developing and maintaining our technology-enabled solutions and infrastructure. As of December 31, 2023, we had 1,071 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. In India, our workforce primarily comprises the teams that support operations, technology, and corporate functions, while in Uruguay, the workforce supports operations and several corporate functions. The executive management team is largely based in Luxembourg, our headquarters.
Our people practices aim to develop our workforce and retain high performers. In 2023, we retained 92% of employees deemed high performers, excluding Company initiated separations. We had regular touchpoints through the employee life cycle, including one-on-one connects, skip meetings and employee surveys to understand the employee needs and align our people practices accordingly to meet these needs. During the year, our human resources team continued to implement initiatives to expand diversity, equity and inclusion. Initiatives included training and awareness sessions for managers, women leadership talks, mentoring initiatives for the diverse population, awareness campaigns on pride, and mental health and cultural history months. There were also several events focusing on both physical and mental wellness in a remote environment.
We continued to emphasize employee development and training. Each of our employees on average undertook 21 hours of training in 2023, including a mix of functional, compliance and behavioral learning programs. We expanded our learning modules in 2023, which include podcasts, behavioral learning programs and several other self-paced online programs, in addition to our regular online trainings.

or harassment of any kind, including on the basis of race, color, caste, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), gender identity or expression (including transgender status), sexual orientation, marital status, military service and veteran status, physical or mental disability, protected medical condition as defined by applicable law, genetic information, 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.
In the United States, 24% of leadership roles (Director and above) are held by women and 24% by people of color, while 47% of employees are women and 41% are people of color. Our focus on creating awareness through diversity learning workshops, panel discussions with employees and promotion of a diversity statement helps to provide a comprehensive ecosystem for diversity to flourish.
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 are critical to us. We did not receive any formal employee complaints regarding health and safety during 2023, and to our knowledge, we have not experienced any work-related accidents during the last three years.
As a result of the pandemic’s impact on the default market and our default related businesses, and the impact that higher interest rates had on certain of our origination related businesses, we made the difficult decision to reduce our global workforce in 2023 to better align our staffing levels to revenue. These initiatives impacted approximately 33% of our global workforce throughout 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”). During 2023, we met with shareholders collectively representing a majority of our outstanding shares, as well as analysts, to discuss a variety of matters, including Company strategy, business performance and operations, compensation practices and capital structure.
Board Composition and Experience
Our Board of Directors and Nomination/Governance Committee are committed to ensuring that our Board of Directors 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. During 2023, when discussing the future of our Board of Directors, our Nomination/Governance Committee continued to consider the potential benefits of onboarding candidates with relevant experience that reflect the diversity of the society where we operate.
Our Board of Directors has nominated all our current directors for reelection at the Annual Meeting.

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.
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, 2024, in order to allow sufficient time to tabulate the votes prior to the start of the meeting.
Shareholders may also vote in person at the meeting. 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 meeting. If a bank

Proxy Statement   
or broker holds your shares, you must also obtain and present a “legal proxy” from the holder of record to vote at the meeting. For specific instructions, please refer to the proxy card, notice or email notification you receive.
Even if you plan to attend the meeting, we recommend that you vote your shares in advance of the meeting in one of the manners available to you so that your vote will be counted if later you are unable to attend in person.
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 proxy statement and “FOR” each of the other proposals identified in the agenda for the Annual Meeting and, with regard to any other business that properly comes before the 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.” All of our proposals other than the proposals related to the appointment of our independent registered certified public accounting firm and certified auditor and our annual accounts, 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 these proposals, your shares will not be counted.
How to Revoke a Proxy
Your proxy may be used only at the relevant meeting 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 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 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. 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 RSM US LLP as our independent registered certified public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2024 and until the Company’s 2025 annual meeting of shareholders, and the appointment of Atwell S.à r.l. as 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, 2023; (iii) the proposal to receive and approve our Directors’ report for the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts for the year ended December 31, 2023 and to receive our supervisory auditor’s (Commissaire aux Comptes) report 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, 2023; (v) the proposal to approve the discharge of each of our Directors for the performance of their mandate during the year ended December 31, 2023 and our supervisory auditor (Commissaire aux Comptes) for the performance of her mandate for the same period; (vi) the advisory vote to approve the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in this Proxy Statement (“Say-on-Pay”); (vii) the proposal to approve the amendment of our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) to increase the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the Plan by an additional 3.3 million shares; and (viii) any other matter properly submitted for your consideration at the Annual Meeting. Because the advisory vote to approve the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in this Proxy Statement (“Say-on-Pay”) is non-binding and advisory in nature, there is no required number of votes that would constitute approval. While our Board of Directors intends to carefully consider the shareholder votes resulting from the Say-On-Pay proposal, the final vote will not be binding on us and is advisory in nature.
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 agenda of the Annual Meeting.

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.
We are proposing the five (5) nominees listed below for election as Directors at the Annual Meeting until the next annual meeting of shareholders or until their respective successors have been elected and qualified, subject to their earlier death, resignation or removal.
All nominees 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 our Board of Directors may recommend in place of such nominee, unless our Board of Directors chooses to reduce the number of Directors serving on our Board of Directors. At this time, our Board of Directors knows of no reason why any of the nominees would not be able or willing to serve as Director if elected.

Board of Directors and Corporate Governance
Meetings of our Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors 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 our Board of Directors and Committees on which they serve. Directors are also consulted for advice and counsel between formal meetings.
Our Board of Directors met twelve (12) times in 2023 and took action pursuant to written consent one (1) time.
In accordance with Luxembourg law and the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, our Board of Directors has appointed the Company’s Chief Executive Officer to serve as the Managing Director (administrateur délégué) of the Company to conduct the daily management of the Company. The Managing Director took no action pursuant to written consent in 2023.
During 2023, each of our Directors attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the meetings of our Board of Directors and Committees on which they served, in each case, during their period of service.
During 2023, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer declared a conflict of interest and abstained from voting during our Board of Directors’ approvals of the following transactions: (i) the ratification of the Compensation Committee’s approvals as they relate to his 2022 Service Year Recommended Incentive Award, and his 2023 Annual Incentive Plan and Scorecard; and (ii) our Board of Directors’ approval of the 2024 Annual Incentive Plan Scorecard and Methodology, as it relates to his scorecard.
Although we expect directors to attend each annual meeting of shareholders, we have no formal policy requiring such attendance. All the directors attended last year’s annual meeting.
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. Our Board of Directors also considers each Director’s beneficial ownership of our common stock in its independence analysis, as set forth under “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management.” Our Board of Directors believes that stock ownership by Directors is positive in that it 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.
Our Board of Directors has determined that all of our current Directors, other than Mr. Shepro, are independent under the Nasdaq listing standards. Our Board of Directors determined that Mr. Shepro is not independent because he also serves as Chief Executive Officer.
Executive Sessions of Independent Directors
Our independent Directors met in executive session of our Board of Directors without management four (4) times in 2023.
Board Leadership Structure
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that our Board of Directors may appoint a lead independent director unless the Chairman of our Board of Directors is an independent director. Mr. Shepro, our Chairman of our Board of Directors, is also our Chief Executive Officer, and, as a result, our Board of Directors believes that
 
19

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Board of Directors and Corporate Governance   
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 of Directors may otherwise determine from time to time.
Our Board of Directors appointed Mr. Shepro as Chairman of our Board of Directors in May 2019. Our Board of Directors believes that combining the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer is appropriate at this time due to Mr. Shepro’s critical role in our strategy, his experience with the Company and its customers across business cycles, and his longevity with the Company. Mr. Shepro is responsible for the design, in consultation with our 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.
Committees of our 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 Company’s 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 accounting, auditing, financial reporting and internal control functions; (iii) establishes procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of concerns, 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 our 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 our Audit Committee during 2023 were Messrs. Müller-Ineichen and Morettini and Ms. Hickok, with Mr. Müller-Ineichen serving as the Committee Chair. 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 our Board of Directors 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 https://ir.altisource.com/corporate-governance and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. The Audit Committee reviews its charter annually and presents any recommendations for amendments to our Board of Directors. The Audit Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and reports to our Board of Directors on the results of its evaluation, including an assessment of the charter’s adequacy. The Audit Committee last reviewed its Charter in December 2023. The Audit Committee met nine (9) times in 2023. The Audit Committee met in executive session with the Company’s internal auditors four (4) times, with the Company’s external auditors four (4) times, and simultaneously with the internal and external auditors three (3) times.
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 per employee and/or up to 5,000 restricted shares (or similar equity instrument) per new hire and existing employees (other than Named Executive Officers), for an aggregate amount of up to 75,000 stock options and/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 2023 were Ms. Hickok and Mr. Müller-Ineichen, with Ms. Hickok serving as the Committee Chair.
Each member of the Compensation Committee is independent as defined by the Nasdaq listing standards, as revised in 2013. 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 https://ir.altisource.com/corporate-governance and is available in print to any shareholder who requests it. The Compensation Committee reviews its charter annually and presents any recommendations for amendments to our Board of Directors. The Compensation Committee also evaluates its performance under its charter and reports to our Board of Directors on the results of its evaluation, including an assessment of the charter’s adequacy. The Compensation Committee last reviewed its charter in December 2023. The Compensation Committee met four (4) times in 2023 and took action pursuant to written consent three (3) times.
Compliance Committee.   The Compliance Committee of our Board of Directors assists our 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.

Nomination/Governance Committee.   The Nomination/Governance Committee of our Board of Directors has provided our Board of Directors with a set of corporate governance guidelines, oversees the evaluation of our Board of Directors and recommends to our Board of Directors individuals qualified to serve as Directors and committee members. It also advises our Board of Directors with respect to its composition, procedures and committees. 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 2023 were Messrs. Morettini and Müller-Ineichen, with Mr. Morettini serving as the Committee Chair. Each member of the Nomination/Governance Committee is independent as defined by the Nasdaq listing standards.

The Nomination/Governance Committee regularly evaluates the appropriate size of our Board of Directors. When a vacancy is anticipated, the Nomination/Governance Committee selects several candidates for Director. Candidates may be recommended to the Nomination/Governance Committee by current members of our Board of Directors, professional search firms, shareholders or industry sources.
When recommending nominees to our Board of Directors, 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 our 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 the Company’s 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 https://ir.altisource.com/corporate-governance.
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 our Board of Directors and the interplay between the candidate’s experience and 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.
As part of this evaluation, prospective nominees will be interviewed by one or more members of the Nomination/Governance Committee, and others as appropriate. After completing the evaluation and interviews, the Nomination/Governance Committee recommends individuals for nomination to our full Board of Directors. After considering the Nomination/Governance Committee’s recommendation and report, our Board of Directors decides which candidates will be nominated and presented to the shareholders for election.
The Nomination/Governance Committee considers director candidates recommended by shareholders. If you would like to recommend persons for consideration by our Nomination/Governance Committee as nominees for

Shareholder Rights
We are committed to governance policies and practices that serve the interests of the Company and its shareholders in accordance with Luxembourg law. The following is a summary of our policies and practices that provide rights to our shareholders:

Our Board of Directors and its Committees monitor developments in governance best practices to assure that our Board of Directors 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 our Board of Directors 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 our 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 corporatesecretary@altisource.com.

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.

Ethics for Senior Financial Officers in December 2023. 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 https://ir.altisource.com/corporate-governance 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, our Board of Directors and 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 periodically performs, and reports to our 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 steps management is taking to map and mitigate these risks. This enterprise risk assessment generally reviews: (i) strategic risks; (ii) financial risks; (iii) sales and marketing risks; (iv) operational risks; (v) legal and compliance risks; (vi) technology risks including data privacy risks and cybersecurity risks; and (vii) 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 our Board of Directors and its Committees providing oversight of the management of these risks.
Share Hedging, Margin Lending, Share Pledging
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.

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 our 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 our 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 2022 to 2023 service year, our non-management Directors who attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of our Board of Directors and Committees on which they served received 12,327 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 18, 2022 (the first day of the 2022 to 2023 service year).
For the 2023 to 2024 service year, our non-management Directors who attend at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of our Board of Directors and Committees on which they serve will receive 28,037 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 17, 2023 (the first day of the 2023 to 2024 service year).
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 our 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), if not a member of the Company’s management(1);

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

an additional $5,000 to all Nomination/Governance Committee members (other than the Nomination/ Governance Committee Chair).

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

The Company also pays or reimburses our Directors for reasonable travel, lodging, food and other expenses incurred while attending Board of Directors, Committee or shareholder meetings, or other corporate functions.
Certain Directors are also required to file Luxembourg tax returns in connection with their compensation as Altisource Directors. 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 our 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 our Board of Directors after an annual meeting of shareholders but during the service year. This table shows the amounts earned for service in 2023, including amounts earned for service in the fourth quarter of 2023 and paid in the first quarter of 2024.

Non-management Directors who attended at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all meetings of our Board of Directors and Committees on which they served for the 2022 to 2023 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 2023.

On the date of her initial election to our Board of Directors, Ms. Hickok received a one-time grant of 500 shares of common stock.

All cash compensation related to Ms. Hickok’s service as a Director is paid to STS Master Fund, Ltd. Shares granted to Ms. Hickok for her service as a Director are transferred to the account of DPR CC LLC, a C-Corp wholly-owned by Deer Park/STS Master Fund Ltd. As of December 31, 2023, DPR CC LLC held 250 unvested shares granted to Ms. Hickok.

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 currently meets the minimum stock ownership requirements. 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 https://ir.altisource.com/corporate-governance.

Mr. Shepro’s base salary is set in U.S. dollars and paid in euros. His base salary was converted to euros using an exchange rate of 0.83 euros to the U.S. dollar in accordance with his employment agreement. The base salary reported on the table above is the U.S. dollar base salary prior to conversion to euros. Mr. Shepro volunteered to temporarily modify his cash compensation effective November 1, 2023 by providing the Company with the option to replace up to 30% of his base salary with a grant of unrestricted Altisource common stock on a quarterly basis (the “Adjustment”). Beginning on the effective date of the Adjustment, the cash portion of Mr. Shepro’s base salary may be reduced by up to 30% at the election of the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors (the “Reduced Amount”). At the end of each calendar quarter (each a “Period”), so long as the Adjustment is in place, the Compensation Committee will determine the portion of the Reduced Amount to be paid in Altisource common stock, with the remainder of the Reduced Amount (if any) to be paid in cash. To the extent that the Company opts to pay any portion of the Reduced Amount in Altisource common stock, such stock grant will occur on the last day of the applicable quarter and vest immediately, with the amount of common stock granted being determined based on the lower of the average closing stock price for such quarter and the closing stock price on the day immediately preceding the date of such grant. The amount of Mr. Shepro’s cash compensation reduction in 2023 was paid in Altisource common stock in January 2024. To the extent the Company opts to pay a portion of the Reduced Amount in cash, such amount paid will be increased to include interest on such amount based on the average 3-month U.S. Treasury rate in effect for such Period in a manner to make Mr. Shepro whole

Salary levels are also considered upon relocation, promotion or change in job responsibility. In addition, base salaries of our Luxembourg-based Named Executive Officers may be subject to inflationary adjustments from time to time as required by applicable Luxembourg law.

Annual Incentive Compensation
The Compensation Committee sets the target incentive compensation for our Chief Executive Officer and approves the target incentive compensation for all other Named Executive Officers. The annual incentives for our Named Executive Officers (and other employees eligible for an annual incentive) are subject to adjustment based on a variable bonus pool (the “Bonus Pool”), with the size of the pool being subject to change by an amount equal to 25% of any increase or decrease of Adjusted EBITDA calculated based on: (1) service revenue differences from budget multiplied by the budgeted Adjusted EBITDA margin multiplied by 12.5% and (2) Adjusted EBITDA differences from budget multiplied by 12.5%.
Target incentive compensation is reviewed periodically, and adjustments may be made based on market information, internal review of the Named Executive Officer’s compensation in relation to other executives and performance. In addition, the Chief Executive Officer’s target incentive compensation historically has been adjusted commensurate with inflationary salary indexation under Luxembourg law. The incentives are typically paid in a mix of cash and equity as approved by our Board of Directors.
For the year ended December 31, 2023, our Named Executive Officers had the following target annual bonus amounts, subject to adjustment based on changes to the Bonus Pool: Mr. Shepro—$1,391,208, Ms. Esterman—$300,000, and Mr. Ritts—$246,000.
The table below includes the performance metrics for the annual incentive compensation for the year ended December 31, 2023:

William B. Shepro 40% 60%
Michelle D. Esterman 25% 50% 5% 20%
Gregory J. Ritts 25% 50% 5% 20%
For the 2023 service year, the Bonus Pool achievement was originally 69.9%; however, our Board of Directors exercised its discretion and reduced the Bonus Pool to 42% of target due to Company performance.

Gregory J. Ritts $ 246,000 79.4% $ 195,367 $ (61,319) $ 134,048 54.5%
Our Board of Directors also determined that the 2023 annual incentive compensation earned by our Named Executive Officers would be paid entirely in RSUs (as opposed to mix of cash and equity). Historically, the cash portion of the annual incentive compensation was paid immediately. The RSUs which were substituted for the cash portion of the 2023 annual incentive compensation will vest on the first anniversary of the grant date, with the remainder of the RSUs vesting equally on the first and second anniversaries of the grant date. As a result, 80% of the 2023 annual incentive compensation will vest on the first anniversary of the grant date, with the remainder vesting on the second anniversary of the grant date, subject to continued employment. The table below summarizes the RSU equity to be received as part of the 2023 annual incentive compensation, which is included in the Summary Compensation Table for 2023. The number of RSUs awarded was determined by dividing the value of actual incentive earned by the Named Executive Officer by the average closing price of ASPS common stock for the 30 trading days preceding the February 20, 2024 grant date.

Mr. Shepro voluntarily reduced his earned incentive by $209,270 or 41.1% from an earned incentive of $509,270 to a paid incentive of $300,000. The reduced amount was repurposed to increase the Bonus Pool available to certain other employees. As a result, the amount actually received by Mr. Shepro’s equates to an Overall Attainment Percentage of 21.6%.
2023 Long-Term Incentive Plan Awards
In March 2023, the Compensation Committee approved the 2023 Long-Term Incentive Plan equity awards (“LTIP”) for our Named Executive Officers. The awards are comprised equally of time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance and market-based RSUs.
The time-based RSUs will vest in three equal annual increments on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date, subject to employment status and other conditions as set forth in the applicable award agreements.
The award of performance and market-based RSUs will be determined in a two-step process. In the first step, RSUs vest based on the degree of the Company’s achievement of pre-established goals tied to the Company’s 2023, 2024 and 2025 adjusted earnings per share (a non-GAAP measure). Based on the Company’s level of performance versus the adjusted earnings per share goals, the RSUs will have the opportunity to vest between zero percent (0%) and up to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the initial target levels (the “Initial Award Size”). In the second step, the Initial Award Size may be modified based on Altisource’s Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) versus the return of the Russell 2000 Index during the applicable performance period (2023-2025), resulting in final earned RSUs equal to zero percent (0%) and up to two hundred twenty-five percent (225%) of the Initial Award Size.
Any earned performance and market-based RSUs will vest, subject to continued employment, entirely on the third anniversary of the grant.
As illustrated in the graphic below, adjusted EPS (earnings per share) and relative TSR results determine the portion of performance and market-based RSUs earned.
[MISSING IMAGE: fc_award-4clr.jpg]
The 2023 LTIP equity awards are designed to incent the achievement of adjusted earnings per share goals and stock-price appreciation over a multi-year period, supporting a long-term focus and further aligning executive compensation with shareholder interests and market practice, as well as supporting the retention of our executives.
The 2023 LTIP equity awards were approved for our Named Executive Officers, as follows:

Amendment of EPS goal for 2021, 2022 and 2023 LTIP awards
In 2023, the Compensation Committee elected to exercise its discretion to revise the 2023 adjusted EPS goal for each of the 2021, 2022 and 2023 LTIP awards. This change factors in the adjustment of the average number of

shares outstanding in calculating the LTIP adjusted EPS target for each award to include: (1) the 5,590,277 shares of common stock sold pursuant to the underwritten public offering closed on September 12, 2023; and (2) the common stock subject to warrants held by our lenders (as adjusted as a result of our partial repayment of the Term Loans). Based on the targets approved by the Compensation Committee, the level of achievement for 2023 on the adjusted EPS goal was 67.3%. The achievement for the 2021 LTIP awards was reduced by 50% by applying the TSR against the Russell 3000 stock market index metric of the award. The achievement for the 2022 and 2023 LTIP awards will be modified by the performance of the TSR against the Russell 2000 for the applicable three-year performance period.

Executive Compensation   
Employment Agreements
Altisource is party to Luxembourg employment agreements with each of our Luxembourg-based Named Executive Officers, as required by Luxembourg law. The employment terms of each agreement continue indefinitely until the executive ceases being a Luxembourg employee of Altisource. The agreements provide for a base salary and annual incentive compensation based on the satisfaction of relevant performance criteria. In addition, the executives may receive relocation and foreign living allowances, as well as benefits such as health insurance. Please see the “Relocation and Foreign Living Allowances” section and the Summary Compensation Table under the “Executive Compensation” section above for additional details.
In order to terminate the employment agreement, each party must provide notice in accordance with the applicable time periods set forth in article L.124-1 of the Luxembourg Labor Code; provided, however, in the event of termination by the Company for “Cause” ​(“motifs graves,” as defined in article L.124-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code), no notice period is required. In addition, in the event of termination by the Company without “Cause” or, in some instances, resignation by the executive for “Good Reason,” the executive will receive severance benefits as described below. Furthermore, the executive may be entitled to receive additional payments in accordance with article L.124-7 of the Luxembourg Labor Code if executive has been employed for more than five (5) years, which period has been satisfied by each of our Luxembourg-based Named Executive Officers.
The agreements also include a covenant not to disclose our confidential information and to enter into an intellectual property agreement. In addition, the agreements include covenants of non-competition for a minimum period of one (1) year, and non-solicitation of two (2) years, or one (1) year in the case of the Chief Executive Officer, following the termination of the agreement. The agreements are governed, interpreted and subject to the limitations of, and performed pursuant to and in accordance with, the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
In 2021, our Board of Directors approved a severance arrangement for our Chief Financial Officer, who would receive a severance payment equal to one year’s base compensation paid in twelve equal installments in case of termination without cause.
Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change of Control
As discussed above, Messrs. Shepro and Ritts have entered into employment agreements with the Company. Under these agreements, if employment is terminated due to retirement or disability or otherwise without cause, as defined therein, the Company will pay all standard relocation costs to relocate the executive officer to the United States. If the Company terminates the employment of the foregoing Named Executive Officers other than for “Cause” ​(“motifs graves,” as defined in L.124-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code) and, in the case of Mr. Shepro, if he terminates his employment for “Good Reason” ​(as defined in his employment agreement), the Company shall make a cash payment of twelve (12) months’ base salary (in the case of Mr. Shepro) and four (4) months’ base salary (in the case of Mr. Ritts) in addition to certain notice and additional payments as may be required under articles L.124-1 and L.124-7 of the Luxembourg Labor Code. In the case of Mr. Shepro, the Company shall also pay at least one (1) year of target incentive compensation in such instances. Additionally, if the Company terminates the employment of Mr. Shepro other than for “Cause” after October 1 of the service year, and before incentives are paid for the respective service year, Mr. Shepro will be entitled to receive incentive compensation for such service year. The employment agreement of Mr. Ritts additionally provides that, in the event of a Change of Control (as defined therein), the Company shall make a lump-sum cash payment to Mr. Ritts equal to twelve (12) months’ base salary plus one (1) year’s target incentive compensation. Additionally, if such Change of Control happens after October 1 of a service year and before incentives are paid for such service year, Mr. Ritts will be entitled to receive incentive compensation for such service year with such payment to be prorated to the date of such Change of Control if occurring between October 1 and December 31 of such year. Subsequent to such Change of Control, if Mr. Ritts is terminated other than for Cause, his severance payment would be limited to the statutory notice and such other payment obligations required under articles L.124-1 and L.124-7 of the Luxembourg Labor Code. If the Company terminates one of the foregoing Named Executive Officers for “Cause,” the Company may do so without notice and with no obligation to make any further payments to such executive, other than amounts accrued and unpaid at the date of termination.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Executive Compensation   
With respect to stock options, upon termination of a Named Executive Officer’s employment other than for “Cause,” as defined by the applicable stock option agreement, or by reason of resignation, the Named Executive Officer will typically be entitled to retain any vested portion of prior awards granted and any unvested market-based options for which the vesting hurdles have already been achieved. Typically, the Named Executive Officer’s right to retain any options following termination of employment is subject to the requirement that he or she has been employed with the Company for a period of at least two (2) years, which period has been satisfied by each of our Named Executive Officers. Upon termination of employment for “Cause,” all vested and unvested stock options awarded pursuant to such agreement will be forfeited.
In addition, certain of the stock option agreements provide for accelerated vesting of service-based options. Typically, upon a Named Executive Officer’s death, disability or, in some instances, retirement (as defined in the applicable stock option agreement), service-based options will immediately vest; provided however that the Named Executive Officer’s right to the acceleration of options following termination of employment is typically subject to the requirement that he or she has been employed with the Company for a period of at least three (3) years in the case of retirement and two (2) years in other instances, which periods have been satisfied by each of our Named Executive Officers. Additionally, pursuant to certain of these agreements, if there is a change of control transaction (“Transaction”), the Compensation Committee may, inter alia, adjust the vesting conditions of the options in its discretion, which could result in the immediate vesting of some or all of the options. Under the terms of the stock option awards granted to our Named Executive Officers on and after April 15, 2015, in the event of a Transaction, a buyer will have the option to cancel the stock options in exchange for the stock options’ intrinsic value or allow them to remain in place. Generally, for termination not due to death, disability or retirement, a Named Executive Officer has six (6) months within which to exercise vested stock options pursuant to our stock option agreements.
With respect to restricted shares and RSUs granted to our Named Executive Officers, in some instances if the executive officer’s employment is terminated due to death, disability, or retirement (as defined in our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan and the applicable award agreements) unvested restricted shares and RSUs shall immediately vest, subject to the requirement that such executive officer has been employed with the Company for a period of time prior to the death, disability or retirement, as applicable, which periods have been satisfied by each of our Named Executive Officers. If the Named Executive Officer voluntarily resigns or his or her employment is terminated for “Cause,” any unvested restricted shares and RSUs will be forfeited. In some cases, if the Company terminates a Named Executive Officer’s employment for reasons other than “Cause,” as defined by the applicable award agreement, certain unvested restricted shares and RSUs will vest after 30 days of such termination. In addition, certain restricted share and RSU awards provide for the vesting of unvested restricted shares and RSUs in the event of a Transaction.
Except as specified above, any portion of an equity award not vested will generally be forfeited unless alternate arrangements are made at the discretion of the Compensation Committee.

William B. Shepro was the PEO for each of 2021, 2022 and 2023.

SEC rules require certain adjustments be made to the Summary Compensation Table totals to determine Compensation Actually Paid as reported in the Pay versus Performance Table. Compensation Actually Paid does not necessarily represent cash and/or equity value transferred to the applicable named executive officer without restriction, but rather is a value calculated under applicable SEC rules. In general, Compensation Actually Paid is calculated as Summary Compensation Table total compensation adjusted to include the fair market value of equity awards as of December 31 of the applicable year or, if earlier, the vesting date (rather than the grant date).
(3)
Our non-PEO named executive officers for 2022 and 2023 were Michelle D. Esterman and Gregory J. Ritts and our non-PEO named executive officers for 2021 were Michelle D. Esterman, Gregory J. Ritts and Marcello Mastioni.
(4)
TSR is calculated based on a fixed $100 investment as of December 31 of the previous year, with the return on such investment measured as of market close on the last trading day of the year being reported.
The following table outlines the adjustments made to the compensation earned by our PEO and non-PEO Named Executive Officers, as presented in the Summary Compensation Table, to derive the Compensation Actually Paid to our PEO and non-PEO Named Executive Officers.

Executive Compensation   
The following graphs denote the relationships between net income and TSR with actual compensation paid to the PEO and the average compensation actually paid to Non-PEO Named Executive Officers:
[MISSING IMAGE: bc_executive-4clr.jpg]
[MISSING IMAGE: bc_compenasation-4clr.jpg]
The TSR from December 31, 2020, to December 31, 2021 was negative $12.89, for the period December 31, 2021 to December 31, 2022, was negative $26.55, and for the period from December 31, 2021 to December 30, 2023, was negative $62.37. Net income of Altisource was approximately $11.8 million in 2021, net loss of approximately $53.4 million in 2022 and a net loss of approximately $56.3 million in 2023.
Named Executive Officer Compensation
The actual compensation paid to the PEO increased from 2021 to 2022 by 11.1%, from approximately $1.78 million in 2021 to approximately $1.98 million in 2022 and decreased by 69.9% from 2022 to 2023 to approximately $0.60 million in 2023. The increase in actual compensation paid in 2022 was mainly due to the termination of a 2021 temporary reduction in the PEO’s salary, which was made in response to the financial condition of the Company. The decrease in actual compensation paid in 2023 was mainly due to (i) decrease at the end of the year fair value of awards granted in prior year of $865,194, (ii) decrease in fair values of awards granted in prior year that vested in 2023—change in fair value as of vesting date from end of prior year of $336,571 and (iii) fair value at the end of prior year of awards granted in prior years that failed to meet applicable vesting conditions during year of $195,235.
The average actual compensation paid to our non-PEO Named Executive Officers decreased from 2021 to 2022 by 16.2% from approximately $762,000 in 2021 to approximately $639,000 in 2022 and decreased by 59.2% from 2022 to 2023 to approximately $260,658 in 2023. The decrease in actual compensation paid in 2022 was mainly due to the elimination of one Named Executive Officer position and a reduction of incentive compensation. The decrease in average actual compensation paid in 2023 was mainly due to (i) decrease at the end of the year fair value of awards granted in prior year of $306,552, (ii) decrease in fair values of awards granted in prior year that vested in 2023—change in fair value as of vesting date from end of prior year of $90,127 and (iii) fair value at the end of prior year of awards granted in prior years that failed to meet applicable vesting conditions during year of $40,626.

Report of the Audit Committee
As described more fully in our charter, the Audit Committee reports to and acts on behalf of our Board of Directors by providing oversight of the financial management, independent auditors and financial reporting procedures of the Company. The Company’s management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of the Company’s financial statements, the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting and procedures that are reasonably designed to assure compliance with accounting standards and applicable laws and regulations.

In connection with these responsibilities, the Audit Committee met with management and our independent registered certified public accounting firm to review and discuss the December 31, 2023 audited consolidated financial statements. The Audit Committee has discussed with the independent registered certified public accounting firm the matters required to be discussed by the PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 1301, Communications with Audit Committees.

Proposal Three   
Proposal Three: Approval of the Company’s Luxembourg Statutory Accounts
Pursuant to Luxembourg law, the Luxembourg Annual Accounts and the Consolidated Accounts must be submitted each year to shareholders for approval at the Annual Meeting.
The Luxembourg Annual Accounts are prepared in accordance with Luxembourg generally accepted accounting principles and consist of a balance sheet, a profit and loss account and the notes for the unconsolidated Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. entity. There is no statement of movements in equity or statement of cash flows included in the Luxembourg Annual Accounts under Luxembourg generally accepted accounting principles. Profits earned by the subsidiaries of Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. are not included in the Luxembourg Annual Accounts unless such amounts are distributed to Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. The Luxembourg Annual Accounts as of and for the year ended December 31, 2023 reflect total assets of $758.4 million and a loss for the year then ended of $338.4 million.
The Consolidated Accounts are prepared in accordance with IFRS, and consist of a balance sheet, statement of operations, statement of changes in stockholders’ equity, statement of cash flows and the accompanying notes. The Consolidated Accounts present the financial position and results of operations for Altisource and all its subsidiaries as if the individual entities were a single company. As of December 31, 2023, the Consolidated Accounts reflect a total deficit of $130.3 million and net loss for the year then ended of $54.6 million.
Pursuant to Luxembourg law, following shareholder approval of the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts, such accounts must be filed with the Luxembourg trade registry as public documents. If Altisource does not receive shareholder approval of the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts, we cannot make this filing.
Altisource’s Luxembourg Statutory Accounts will be available to shareholders at our registered office, during business hours, by appointment, subject to location limitations, if any, that may be imposed by the Luxembourg government, from May 16, 2024 until the conclusion of the Annual Meeting.

Proposal Four   
Proposal Four: Receipt and Approval of our Directors’ Report for the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts and Receipt of our Supervisory Auditor’s Report for the Luxembourg Annual Accounts
Under Luxembourg law, our Board of Directors is required to prepare an annual Directors’ report for our Luxembourg Statutory Accounts (the “Directors’ Report”). The Directors’ Report presents the Luxembourg Statutory Accounts for the relevant fiscal year, provides an explanation as to the results and certain other required Company matters and proposes the allocation of such results to the shareholders.
Luxembourg law also requires our supervisory auditor (Commissaire aux Comptes) to provide an annual report confirming that the Company’s Luxembourg Annual Accounts agree with the Company’s accounting records and documents.
The Directors’ Report for the year ended December 31, 2023 and the Supervisory Auditor’s Report for the Luxembourg Annual Accounts for the same period will be available to shareholders at our registered office, during business hours, by appointment, subject to location limitations, if any, that may be imposed by the Luxembourg government, from May 16, 2024 until the conclusion of the Annual Meeting.

Proposal Five   
Proposal Five: Allocation of the Results in the Luxembourg Annual Accounts
Each year, the shareholders of Altisource are required to approve the allocation of the results of the unconsolidated Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. entity, as determined by the Luxembourg Annual Accounts.
Luxembourg law requires that at least five percent (5%) of the net profits, if any, for the Luxembourg Annual Accounts be allocated to a legal reserve; provided, however that an allocation ceases to be compulsory when the legal reserve reaches ten percent (10%) of the share capital of Altisource, but again becomes compulsory when the reserve amount falls below this threshold. As the Company had a net loss pursuant to its Luxembourg Annual Accounts for the year ended December 31, 2023, no such allocation is required.
As of December 31, 2023, the Luxembourg Annual Accounts for Altisource reflect total assets of $758.4 million and a loss for the year then ended of $338.4 million. As noted in Proposal Three, profits earned by subsid
