Feb 21, 2023

Move advances Vision 2025 strategy, allowing for greater operational efficiency and diversification of revenue streams

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Creating the best possible experience for customers, loanDepot, Inc. ("LDI" or "Company") (NYSE: LDI), has successfully migrated 100 percent of mortgage loans serviced by its third-party sub-servicer to its in-house platform. The move, which began in early 2021 and is now complete, enhances operational efficiency and allows the Company to diversify revenue streams.

"Bringing this two-year effort to the finish line is a true testament to loanDepot's ongoing investment in our in-house servicing capabilities and, in turn, our customers," said LDI Managing Director of Operations and Servicing Dan Binowitz. "Providing best-in-class customer service is our top priority and owning the entire customer journey enables us to build loyalty by providing the most hassle-free and streamlined service possible."

With the transition complete, loanDepot will continue to invest in its in-house servicing business, complementing its origination strategy to serve customers through the entire mortgage journey. This enables the Company to capture additional revenue opportunities over time by leveraging its marketing and customer acquisition expenses across a diverse set of products and services.

"Completing the migration of our servicing portfolio as part of loanDepot's purpose-driven strategy allows us to serve customers in the way they want to be served – and has cost-saving and revenue generating implications," said LDI President and CEO Frank Martell. "It strengthens our customer relationships while increasing the value of the portfolio to us by generating additional revenue opportunities."

This move advances loanDepot's Vision 2025 strategy by eliminating mortgage sub-servicing costs and further reducing third-party vendor spending, which is a significant step in realigning the Company's structure to serve customers more efficiently in the current market while building improved customer loyalty and brand affinity.
