SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Origen Financial, Inc. (Pink Sheets: ORGN) ("Origen" or the "Company"), a real estate investment trust that manages residual interests in securitized manufactured housing loan portfolios, today announced net income of $587,000, or approximately $0.02 per share of common stock outstanding, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as compared to a net loss of $70,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2013 a net loss of $2.1 million or $0.08 per share was realized as compared to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.05 per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. The results for 2012 include a gain of approximately $6.2 million relating to the termination of certain of Origen's interest rate swap transactions with Citibank, N.A.

On February 19, 2014, Origen's Board of Directors declared a dividend on common stock of $0.08 per share to be paid to holders of Origen's common stock of record on March 3, 2014.  The dividend will be paid on March 13, 2014 and will approximate $2.1 million.

Net interest income, before loan losses and impairment, decreased by approximately 20 percent for the fourth quarter 2013 to $3.5 million from $4.3 million for the fourth quarter 2012 and decreased approximately 16 percent to $15.2 million for the full year 2013 versus $18.0 million for 2012.  Such decrease is the result of the continued runoff of the Company's securitized loan portfolio and the corresponding reduction in bonds payable. The fourth quarter 2013 provision for loan losses was $1.9 million versus $3.3 million for the prior year quarter, a decrease of approximately 42 percent. The provision for loan losses for the full year 2013 was $10.2 million as compared to $17.4 million for 2012, also a decrease of approximately 42 percent.  Such decreases are a result of the declining loan balances, as well as improvements in delinquency levels and increased recovery percentages on the dispositions of foreclosures and repossessions.  The Company also recorded a reversal of a prior impairment on a purchased loan portfolio in the fourth quarter 2013.  The reversal approximated $1.0 million and was the result of improved cash flows on the purchased loan portfolio. Such portfolio was originally recorded as a loan pool purchased with evidence of deterioration of credit quality.

Non-interest expenses, including $1.6 million of loan servicing expense, were $2.6 million for the fourth quarter 2013, as compared to $2.7 million, including $1.9 million of loan servicing expense, for the year ago quarter, a decrease of approximately 4 percent.  Full year 2013 non-interest expenses, including $6.8 million of loan servicing expense, were $10.3 million as compared to $11.4 million, including $7.9 million of loan servicing expense, for the prior year, a decrease of approximately 11 percent.
