Item 8.01 Other Events.


In a press release dated October 18, 2012, Home Loan Servicing Solutions, Ltd. (“HLSS”) noted a $0.03 per share benefit in its earnings resulting from reduced amortization due to deferral of certain modifications as Ocwen Financial Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Ocwen”) tested delinquent loans for eligibility under the Home Affordable Modification Program, Tier 2.  HLSS further noted that ending the quarter on a Sunday delayed receipt of certain loan pay-offs.  HLSS noted that these factors combined to reduce the annualized prepayment rate from 15.2% to 12.6% in its second quarter.


As of September 30, 2012, HLSS held rights to mortgage servicing rights representing approximately $46,500,000,000 in unpaid principal balance for mortgages that are serviced by Ocwen.
