Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this current report may be deemed to be forward-looking statements under certain securities laws, including the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the pending acquisition of PHH Corporation (PHH) by Ocwen, required approvals, the expected timing of the acquisition and other statements other than in relation to historical facts. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “believe”, “expect”, “foresee”, “forecast”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “estimate”, “goal”, “strategy”, “plan” “target” and “project” and similar expressions of future or conditional verbs such as “will”, “may”, “should”, “could”, or “would” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. Our business has been undergoing substantial change which has magnified such uncertainties. Readers should bear these factors in mind when considering such statements. Forward-looking statements involve a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside the control of Ocwen and PHH, that could cause actual results to differ materially. In the past, actual results have differed from those suggested by forward looking statements and this may happen again. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and we disclaim any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on these statements as a number of important factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the possibility that the proposed transaction does not close when expected or at all. Additional information about these and other factors can be found in Ocwen’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and its quarterly and current reports since such filing, each filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and available at the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov)
