   Investor Update  June 2019   

 This presentation contains summarized information concerning Mr. Cooper Group Inc. (the “Company”) and the Company’s business, operations, financial performance and trends. No representation is made that the information in this presentation is complete. For additional financial, statistical and business related information, as well as information regarding business and segment trends, see the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K (“Form 10-K”) and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), as well other reports filed with the SEC from time to time. Such reports are or will be available in the Investors section of the Company’s website ( and the SEC’s website ( Looking Statements. This presentation contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 including ROTCE estimates and replenishment of MSR portfolio.  All statements other than statements of historical or current fact included in this presentation that address activities, events, conditions or developments that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business and these statements are not guarantees of future performance. Forward-looking statements may include the words “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual events, results or performance to differ materially from those indicated by such statements. Certain of these risks are identified and discussed in documents Mr. Cooper has filed or will file from time to time with the SEC. These risk factors will be important to consider in determining future results and should be reviewed in their entirety. These forward-looking statements are expressed in good faith, and Mr. Cooper believes there is a reasonable basis for them. However, the events, results or trends identified in these forward-looking statements may not occur or be achieved. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and Mr. Cooper is not under any obligation, and expressly disclaims any obligation, to update, alter or otherwise revise any forward-looking statement, except as required by law. Readers should carefully review the statements set forth in the reports that Mr. Cooper has filed or will file from time to time with the SEC.Basis of Presentation. For purpose of Mr. Cooper's financial statement presentation, Mr. Cooper Group Inc. was determined to be the accounting acquirer in the WMIH Corp. merger. “Predecessor” financial information relates to Nationstar and “Successor” financial information relates to Mr. Cooper. The financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and the three months ended December 31, 2018 reflect the results of the Successor. With respect to the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company has presented the results on a “combined” basis by combining the financial results of the Predecessor for the period from July 1, 2018 through July 31, 2018 and the financial results of the Successor for the period from August 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018. Although the separate financial results of the Predecessor for the period from July 1, 2018 through July 31, 2018 and the Successor for the period from August 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018 are each separately presented under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States, the combined results reported reflect non-GAAP financial measures, because a different basis of accounting was used with respect to the financial results for the Predecessor as compared to the financial results of the Successor. The financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018, and March 31, 2018 reflect the results of the Predecessor.Non-GAAP Measures. This presentation contains certain references to non-GAAP measures. Please refer to the Appendix for more information on non-GAAP measures.   Important Information

   Strategic Investment in Originations  Net Portfolio Replenishment  Mr. Cooper has made significant investments to enhance our origination capabilities in recent years, including the acquisition of Pacific Union, to the point that we believe newly originated MSRs are sufficient to replenish the economic runoff of the MSR portfolio, net of excess spread. We do not expect to need to make bulk acquisitions to sustain our net portfolio.  ⁽¹⁾ Net of estimated excess spread financing (ESF) portfolio runoff⁽²⁾ Excludes subservicing funded originations volume⁽³⁾ Gives credit to a full quarter of Pacific Union originations in 1Q’19. Portfolio replenishment is calculated as originations funded volume divided by MSR portfolio runoff, net.Note: Net portfolio is defined as MSR portfolio less ESF portfolio 

   Strategic Goals: Generating and Sustaining Investor Returns  ⁽¹⁾ ROTCE estimates are forward-looking and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances, certain of which are beyond our control. Actual results could differ materially as a result of several factors, including interest rates, prepayment rates, amortization, economic growth and delinquencies.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful because it provides a perspective on underlying cash generation and a means to assess period-over-period results.  Steady state cash flow refers to our estimate of the cash available for growth and other purposes once we have invested in new MSRs sufficient to maintain the profitability of our net portfolio  Numbers may not add due to rounding  Steady state cash flow does not include any working capital benefits  ⁽³⁾  ⁽³⁾  ⁽³⁾

   ROTCE – 1Q’19  ROTCE is a non-GAAP financial measure that is computed by dividing earnings by tangible common equity. Tangible common equity equals total stockholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets. The methodology of determining tangible common equity may differ among companies. Management believes that ROTCE is a useful financial measure because it measures the performance of a business consistently and enables investors and others to assess the Company’s use of equity. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because we are unable to provide, without unreasonable effort, a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimate of amounts that would be necessary for the reconciliation due to the complexity and inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying future amounts or when they may occur. Such unavailable information could be significant to future results.
