Explanatory Note


This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) is being filed to amend the Current Report on Form 8-K previously filed (the “Original 8-K”) by Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (the “Company”) on April 18, 2013, regarding the entry by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Altisource Solutions S.à r.l. (“Altisource”), into an Agreement (the “Agreement”), dated April 12, 2013, with Ocwen Financial Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ocwen Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (collectively, “Ocwen”). This Amendment supersedes the Original 8-K in its entirety.


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 12, 2013, Altisource entered into the Agreement with Ocwen, to establish additional terms related to the existing servicing arrangements between Altisource and Ocwen in connection with Ocwen’s acquisition of certain mortgage servicing platform assets of Residential Capital, LLC (the “ResCap Business”).


The Agreement provides that during the term of the existing servicing arrangements (which currently have terms expiring on August 31, 2025, subject to certain renewal rights) between Altisource and Ocwen, (i) Altisource will be the exclusive provider, except as prohibited by applicable law, to Ocwen and all of its subsidiaries and affiliates, of certain services related to the ResCap Business, (ii) Ocwen will not establish similar fee-based businesses that would directly or indirectly compete with Altisource services as they relate to the ResCap Business and (iii) Ocwen and all of its subsidiaries and affiliates will market and promote the utilization of Altisource’s services to their various third party relationships. Additionally, the parties agreed to use commercially reasonable best efforts to ensure that the loans associated with the ResCap Business are boarded onto Altisource’s mortgage servicing platform. The cash consideration paid or payable by Altisource to Ocwen under the Agreement totals $128.75 million, $80.0 million of which was paid on April 12, 2013, with the remaining $48.75 million to be paid in monthly installments for up to five months following the closing. Ocwen will be responsible for all applicable conversion or other restructuring costs incurred by Altisource to provide the services under the Agreement.


On March 29, 2013, Altisource and Ocwen entered into certain amendments to their existing servicing arrangements as required by the Agreement.  These amendments were reported by the Company pursuant to a current report on Form 8-K filed on April 4, 2013.


The Company analyzed the fair value of expected future revenues and operating expenses in establishing the cash consideration paid or payable to Ocwen in connection with the Agreement and believes that the total consideration paid under the Agreement is substantially similar to the consideration that would have been paid under a comparable agreement between unrelated parties.  See the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed on April 2, 2013 for a description of the Company’s relationship with Ocwen.


This description of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the entire Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Original 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
