Irvine-based Impac Mortgage Corp. is buying the home loan division from troubled consumer loan provider CashCall Inc. in a deal that elevates Impac to the ranks of the nation’s top home lenders, the company announced Thursday.Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although Impac CEO Joe Tomkinson said it was a leveraged buyout, meaning that a combination of cash and stocks will be tendered.“It’s very good terms,” Tomkinson said. “It allows CashCall to concentrate on their consumer-direct business ... (and) this will put us in the top 20 (lenders).”Impac reported that it provided $2.4 billion in conventional mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2013. The mortgage division of Orange-based CashCall made $6.5 billion worth of mortgages the same year.“That’s almost $9 billion combined. In 2013, that would have ranked us 22nd in the nation,” Tomkinson said. CashCall’s mortgage division volume equaled about $800 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.Impac, an alternative lender that narrowly survived the recession by recasting itself as a conventional mortgage provider, plans to continue operating the online,As I sat in his office not kn,coach outlet, consumer-direct mortgage business under CashCall’s name with its current employees.The deal doesn’t include CashCall’s consumer loan division, which has been dogged by at least a dozen state and federal complaints accusing the firm of deceptive practices and excessive interest rates.There is no indication the deal was tied to those allegations, said Paul Muolo, managing editor for Inside Mortgage Finance, an industry publication.The sale, Muolo said, also allows CashCall to shed the liabilities inherent with the mortgage business.But for Impac, a committed mortgage lender, the deal has huge benefits. Tomkinson said Thursday the key benefit is transforming Impac into a retail mortgage lender, eliminating such middlemen as mortgage brokers.Under the deal, Impac will acquire CashCall’s call center, lead management technology, loan origination system and “significant brand equity,” according to a statement from Impac.The price Impac is paying is contingent on how well CashCall’s call center performs, “with the intent to minimize the financial risk” for Impac, the company said.“Their loans are some of the highest quality we’ve seen,” Tomkinson said. “Because it’s a retail operation, it adds a lot of franchise value to Impac. The market views us as a more sustainable business.”CashCall’s operation also provides an online platform for all of Impac’s products, including government-backed conventional loans, jumbo loans and alternative “non-qualified” mortgages.Unlike brick-and-mortar lenders,and staff, online providers can easily scale up or down the size of their operations as mortgage volumes fluctuate in response to changing interest rates.“It should have a very big impact on (Impac’s) bottom line,” Tomkinson said.CashCall’s marketing director declined to comment on the deal, referring all calls to Impac. He also declined to say how much of CashCall’s total operation the mortgage business represented.Contact the writer: 714-796-7734 or
