Home Point Capital’s Origination segment originates and sells residential real estate mortgage loans. These loans are sourced through three channels. The primary channel is Wholesale, where the Company works with mortgage brokerages to source new customers. In the Correspondent channel, customers are acquired through a network of mortgage banks and financial institutions. The Direct channel retains serviced customers in the Home Point Capital ecosystem.
The Origination segment recorded a contribution loss of $8.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to contribution margin of $187.3 million in the prior-year quarter and $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Origination Segment – Financial Highlights and Summary of Key Performance Indicators
Home Point Capital’s Servicing segment generates revenue through contractual fees earned by performing daily administrative and management activities for mortgage loans that were primarily sourced by the Company’s Originations segment. These loans are serviced on behalf of investors/guarantors, primarily Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae. In February 2022, Homepoint announced an agreement with ServiceMac, LLC (“ServiceMac”) pursuant to which ServiceMac will subservice all mortgage loans underlying MSRs Homepoint holds. ServiceMac is expected to begin subservicing loans for Homepoint in the second quarter of 2022. Once ServiceMac begins subservicing loans for Homepoint, they will perform servicing functions on Homepoint’s behalf, but Homepoint will continue to hold the MSRs.
The Servicing segment generated a contribution margin of $83.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $64.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 and $74.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To provide investors with information in addition to our results as determined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), we disclose Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin as “non-GAAP measures,” which management believes provide useful information to investors. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for revenue, net income, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies.
We define Adjusted revenue as Total net revenue exclusive of the impact of the change in fair value of MSRs related to changes in valuation inputs and assumptions, net of MSRs hedge and adjusted for Income from equity method investment.
We define Adjusted net income as Net income (loss) exclusive of the impact of the change in fair value of MSRs related to changes in valuation inputs and assumptions, net of MSRs hedge.
We exclude changes in fair value of MSRs, net of hedge from each of Adjusted revenue and Adjusted net income (loss) as they add volatility and are not indicative of the Company’s operating performance or results of operation. This adjustment does not include changes in fair value of MSRs due to realization of cash flows, which remain in each of Adjusted revenue and Adjusted net income (loss). Realization of cash flows occurs when cash is collected as customers make scheduled payments, partial prepayments of principal, or pay their mortgage in full.
We define Adjusted net margin by dividing Adjusted net income by Adjusted revenue.
We believe that Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin can provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results. These measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies.
We believe that the presentation of Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin provides useful information to investors regarding our results of operations because each measure assists both investors and management in analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin provide indicators of performance that are not affected by fluctuations in certain costs or other items. Accordingly, management believes that these measurements are useful for comparing general operating performance from period to period, and management relies on these measures for planning and forecasting of future periods. The Company measures the performance of the segments primarily on a contribution margin basis. Additionally, these measures allow management to compare our results with those of other companies that have different financing and capital structures. However, other companies may define Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin differently, and as a result, our measures of Adjusted revenue, Adjusted net Income, and Adjusted net margin may not be directly comparable to those of other companies.
