Quoting Management: Glen A. Messina, president and CEO of PHH Corporation, said, “Over the past year and a half, through the execution of our strategic priorities, PHH has made significant progress in placing the company in a position of strength to deal with the cyclical and dynamic nature of the mortgage industry. In the second quarter, our financial performance reflected the impact of a rising interest rate environment, which drove an increase in the value of our mortgage servicing rights and negatively impacted our mortgage origination volume. I’m pleased with the progress the company is making in managing through this transition period to a rising interest rate environment. Our results were also impacted by a charge related to the commutation of our remaining Atrium reinsurance contract. The Fleet business continued to provide solid profitability.”
