Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On February 27, 2012, Ocwen Financial Corporation (“Ocwen”) formed a new wholly owned subsidiary, Ocwen Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (“OMS”), under the laws of the United States Virgin Islands. OMS was created as part of an initiative to consolidate the ownership and management of Ocwen’s global servicing assets and operations under a single entity and cost-effectively expand Ocwen’s United States-based servicing activities. OMS’ principal place of business is in St. Croix, within a federally recognized economic development zone where qualified entities are eligible for certain benefits.

 

As part of this initiative, Ocwen’s Executive Chairman William C. Erbey has relocated to St. Croix to serve as OMS’ Chairman and CEO. On August 21, 2012, the Ocwen Board of Directors approved Ocwen’s purchase of Mr. Erbey’s residence in Atlanta, Georgia, for his cost-basis in the home of $6,477,000. Ocwen also incurred approximately $24,000 of related transaction costs. The transaction is consistent with Ocwen’s standard senior executive relocation policy and practice.
