Countrywide Continues to Set Records for Originations, Applications And Pipeline in June

CALABASAS, Calif., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Countrywide Credit Industries, Inc. (NYSE: CCR profile), a diversified financial services provider, released operational data for the month ended June 30, 2001.

"Countrywide established new all-time records in June for all three key production benchmarks: fundings, applications and pipeline," said Stanford L. Kurland, chief operating officer. "Maintaining a trend, June fundings provided the fourth consecutive monthly record at $11.4 billion, 108 percent higher than in June 2000. Refinances are not the only driver as purchase fundings also set a new record at $5.9 billion and provided 52 percent of total fundings. Record average daily applications of $737 million were 104 percent higher than last year. The record pipeline of loans in process of $18.7 billion is 96 percent higher than last year. All-time highs for applications and pipeline are leading indicators that fundings should remain strong in the coming months.

"Countrywide's balanced business model also produced milestones in our servicing sector," Kurland continued. "After surpassing $300 billion in servicing last month, we eclipsed the 3 million-mortgage customer mark in June. Customer growth provides the foundation for cross-selling our various diversification products. The margin of fundings over prepayments was $4.6 billion in June, another new company record. Our counter-balanced mortgage operations are designed to continue growing our portfolio irrespective of interest rate conditions. It is noteworthy that this record was set in an environment of low mortgage rates, emphasizing the company's ability to grow fundings faster than prepayments.

"Countrywide continues to benefit from the successful integration of value-added technology applications to our business," Kurland added. "E-commerce fundings were $5.2 billion in June which was 46 percent of total fundings. Our Wholesale Lending Division continues to set the pace as 88 percent of its fundings were sourced through its website targeting mortgage brokers, http://www.cwbc.com. The Internet and other technology applications have enabled us to grow our production infrastructure in a manner that should minimize the expense of any necessary downsizing.

"Our diversification activities continued to shine in June," Kurland continued. "LandSafe subsidiaries reflected significant growth in closing services unit volume compared to last June. Our insurance agency maintained its growth trends as annual premium reached $239 million and policies-in-force neared 533,000. Securities trading volume remained high at our broker-dealer and exceeded $109 billion last month. Net written premium at Balboa, our insurance carrier, was $27 million. Global Home Loans, our European mortgage processing joint venture, continues to process over 10,000 originations per month and subservices over $40 billion in the United Kingdom.

"Countrywide continues to establish records in its core business of mortgage origination and servicing," Kurland concluded. "While market observers have varying viewpoints about mortgage market conditions, we view this environment as extremely favorable and we continue to capitalize on available opportunities. We are equally enthused about the results being achieved in our various diversification activities. Most recently, we successfully completed our acquisition of a federally chartered bank. This charter will position Countrywide to improve its portfolio retention through a more complete product menu and increased brand awareness; to offer more competitive adjustable-rate products; to bring certain outsourced bank functions in-house; and to diversify its funding sources."
