Mantra Data Centers to invest $1 Billion to develop data centers in India

 

Mantra Data Centers (“MDC”), an independent data center platform and wholesale colocation provider has announced significant investment plans across India.

MDC will design, build and operate state-of-the-art Data Center facilities with an initial IT load of 20MW in each of the key data hubs: Mumbai, NCR (Delhi), ChennaiBangaloreHyderabad and Kolkata.

The total addressable Indian Data Center market is estimated to surpass $8.5 Billion by 2023 with an increasing share of third party DCs (from ~45% in FY18 to ~62% in FY23).

Global investment in Data Centers announced in the first half of 2021 has escalated to approximately $100 Billion with India benefiting as the largest single market outside the USA, in a report by Headwind Consultants.

“MDC is very well positioned for success in this growing market, with a strong management team, green sourced energy, 1st in class stakeholders, on-time delivery and the right locations to create a network of Tier III & IV Data Centers across India,” commented Mr Jaan M. Chainani, Co-Founder & Managing Director. “Our aim is to help our customers grow seamlessly in the midst of the digitalization of India.”

With a population of over 1.3 Billion, India’s digital growth has been fuelled by digitisation programmes by the Government, internet penetration, increased adoption of cloud, IoT, growing use cases for Augmented / Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence and the roll out of 5G.

The Data Residency Bill is expected to impact E-Commerce, Social Media & BFSI companies as data will need to be stored locally, spurring further Data Center Investments into India.

loanDepot announces second quarter 2021 financial results

 

loanDepot, Inc. (NYSE: LDI), (together with its subsidiaries, “loanDepot” or the “Company”), the innovative consumer lending and real estate services provider that is using its proprietary mello® technology to deliver best-in-class experiences to its customers, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

“Eleven years ago we set out to reshape the mortgage industry with a new, digital-first approach that would thrive across all market conditions. This is why, despite the transition in the mortgage market, we continued to grow in the second quarter with meaningful increases in both market share and purchase loan originations,” said loanDepot Founder and CEO Anthony Hsieh.

“We’ve entered a transitional period and expect to see industry consolidation as some lenders may not be in a position to withstand the headwinds, whereas we are confident and excited for the future. While our revenues were lower on decreased gain on sale margins and rate lock volume during this transitional quarter, our investments and commitment to our core business philosophy continue to fuel our momentum, especially as the industry becomes less fragmented and consumers rightfully demand more robust and integrated products and services from their lender. We will meet and exceed these demands with our just announced loanDepot Grand Slam package that will give homeowners access to real estate, mortgage, title and insurance services within one bundle for their home transaction, increasing ease, speed and peace of mind, all while reducing overall cost to the customer.”

“We can express this confidence,” continued Hsieh, “because our diversified channel strategy, which is the industry’s only at-scale model of this type, and proprietary mello tech stack allow us to continually reduce costs and maximize operational elasticity, so that our loan manufacturing process is true to any given market environment. These unique capabilities, in addition to our world-class, highly-recognized brand and significant top-of-funnel customer acquisition and data matching capabilities ensure that we will continue to grow, responsibly and productively serving our customers, our employees and our shareholders. We are confident we will continue to accelerate our growth, increase our market share and outperform in the long term.”

Current Market Conditions:

The second quarter represented a transitional quarter from the record levels of loan origination volume and profit margins in 2020 into an operating environment characterized by:

  • Lower profit margins resulting from industry overcapacity and increased competitive pressure, particularly in the wholesale partner channel.
  • Higher interest rates resulting in lower refinance transaction volumes.
  • Continuing strong demand for purchase transactions, which is somewhat adversely impacted by supply constraints on new and resale housing.
  • Sharper focus on industry consolidation and expansion of ancillary products and services to capture additional revenue sources and expand customer engagement points.

(1)

Gain on sale margin represents the total of (i) gain on origination and sale of loans, net, and (ii) origination income, net, divided by loan origination volume during period. Gain on the origination and sale of loans, net was adjusted to exclude the change in fair value of forward sale contracts, including pair-offs, hedging MSRs, which are now included in the change in fair value of servicing rights, net on the consolidated statements of income. The Company determined that this change would more appropriately reflect the hedged item and better align with industry practices. Gain on origination and sale of loans, net and change in fair value of servicing rights, net, in the current and prior periods along with the related disclosures have been adjusted to reflect this reclassification.

(2)

Pull through weighted gain on sale margin represents the total of (i) gain on origination and sale of loans, net, and (ii) origination income, net, divided by the pull through weighted rate lock volume. Pull through weighted rate lock volume is the unpaid principal balance of loans subject to interest rate lock commitments, net of a pull-through factor for the loan funding probability.

(3)

On February 11, 2021, the Company’s common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Since loanDepot did not have any shares outstanding prior to this date, earnings per share (“EPS”) information was not determinable. The diluted EPS calculation includes net income attributable to loanDepot, Inc. divided by the diluted weighted average shares of Class A and Class D common stock outstanding for the period after February 11, 2021.

Operational Results

  • Rate lock volume of $42.1 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2021 resulted in quarterly total revenue of $779.9 million, which represents a decrease of $536.1 million, or 41%, from the first quarter of 2021.
  • Loan origination volume for the second quarter of 2021 was $34.5 billion, a decrease of $7.0 billion or 17% from the first quarter of 2021.
  • Our Retail and Partner strategies delivered $10.4 billion of purchase loan originations and $24.1 billion of refinance loan originations during the second quarter of 2021.
  • Net income for the second quarter of 2021 decreased to $26.3 million as compared to $427.9 million in the prior quarter. The quarter over quarter decrease was primarily driven by the decline in gain on sale margins and an increase in servicing rights fair value losses, net of hedge.
  • Reflecting the strength of our core business, adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 exhibited a smaller decline compared to net income, decreasing to $109.3 million as compared to $458.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of fair value changes of our mortgage servicing rights, net of hedging results, and other non-core operating expenses.
  • Total expenses for the second quarter of 2021 decreased by $120.5 million, or 14% from the first quarter of 2021, due primarily to lower variable expenses on loan origination volume and IPO related expenses incurred in the first quarter.

Other Highlights

  • Returned value to shareholders through a regular cash dividend of $0.08 per share paid on July 16, 2021, to shareholders of record on July 1, 2021.
  • Implemented cost cutting initiatives late in the second quarter and early in the third quarter, the results of which we expect to be primarily realized in the second half of 2021. Our technology driven processes allow us to adjust our expenses to changing market conditions, or as demonstrated by our increase in purchase loan originations during the quarter adjust our pipeline to load balance our operational capabilities.
  • Announced the addition of George Brady as Chief Digital Officer and Karin Lockovitch as Chief Risk Officer to our exceptional management team. With the appointments of these highly experienced executives we underscore the Company’s drive to accelerate the pace of innovation, support continued growth, and manage risk.
  • For the second quarter of 2021, our preliminary organic refinance consumer direct recapture rate2 increased to 75% as compared to the final recapture rate of 72% for the first quarter of 2021. This highlights the efficacy of our marketing efforts and the strength of our customer relationships, which includes our growing servicing portfolio that reached a record level of $138.8 billion in unpaid principal balance serviced as of June 30, 2021. This growth was against the backdrop of growing our servicing portfolio in-house and relying relatively less on third party sub-servicing arrangements.
  • Continuing its track record of creating strategically beneficial joint ventures, loanDepot entered into a partnership with Farm Bureau Bank. loanDepot’s streamlined platform makes the Company a partner of choice for home builders and other financial services companies.
  • We believe our position as the second most recognized mortgage brand grew even stronger through our ongoing national television ad campaign delivering over 16 billion household impressions from May 2020 through June 2021. Our extensive data analytics also allowed us to capitalize on the 1.8 million average monthly website visits and 406 million online media exposures during the second quarter of 2021.
  • We firmly believe in our responsibility as corporate citizens to make a positive social impact in the communities in which we work, live and serve. Over the last quarter the Company granted more than $500,000 to organizations across the country, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Surfside Relief Fund and Turn 2 Foundation.

Strategic Channel Overview
Our diverse origination strategy ensures we can serve customers in the way they want to be served, with the right mortgage professional, with the right product, at the right price, at the right time.

The increase in unpaid principal balance of our servicing portfolio was driven by an increase in servicing-retained loan sales, offset somewhat by a sale of $14.4 billion of unpaid principal balance during the quarter. We continued to invest in growing our high-quality servicing portfolio and not only increased total loan originations but also the percentage of our servicing customers who chose to refinance with us.

As of June 30, 2021, approximately 1.4%, or $1.9 billion, of our servicing portfolio was in active forbearance. This represents a decline from 1.7%, or $2.2 billion, as of March 31, 2021.

The decrease in cash and cash equivalents from March 31, 2021 was primarily due to dividend payments during the quarter. An increase in loans held for sale at June 30, 2021, resulted in a corresponding increase in the balance on our warehouse lines of credit. Total funding capacity with our lending partners decreased to $9.5 billion at June 30, 2021 from $10.3 billion at March 31, 2021. The decrease of $0.9 billion was primarily due to a decrease in temporary commitments on existing facilities from lower loan originations during the quarter. Available borrowing capacity was $0.9 billion at June 30, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To provide investors with information in addition to our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA as non-GAAP measures. We believe Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA provide 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. They facilitate company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations in hedging strategies, changes in valuations, capital structures (affecting net interest expense), taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities (affecting relative depreciation expense) and the amortization of intangibles, which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance, as well as certain historical cost (benefit) items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance. 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 Total Revenue” as total revenues, net of the change in fair value of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) and the related hedging gains and losses. We define “Adjusted Net Income” as tax-effected earnings before change in fair value of contingent consideration, stock compensation expense and management fees, IPO expense, and the change in fair value of MSRs, net of the related hedging gains and losses, and the tax effects of those adjustments. We define “Adjusted Diluted EPS” as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock and Class D common stock outstanding for the applicable period, which assumes the proforma exchange of all outstanding Class C common shares for shares of Class A common stock. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as earnings before interest expense and amortization of debt issuance costs on non-funding debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of MSRs, net of the related hedging gains and losses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, stock compensation expense and management fees, and IPO related expense. Adjustments for income taxes are made to reflect historical results of operations on the basis that it was taxed as a corporation under the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore subject to U.S. federal, state and local income taxes. We exclude from each of these non-GAAP measures the change in fair value of MSRs and related hedging gains and losses as this represents a non-cash non-realized adjustment to our total revenues, reflecting changes in assumptions including discount rates and prepayment speed assumptions, mostly due to changes in market interest rates, which is not indicative of our performance or results of operations. We also exclude stock compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense, management fees and IPO expenses as management does not consider these costs to be indicative of our performance or results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA includes interest expense on funding facilities, which are recorded as a component of “net interest income (expense)”, as these expenses are a direct operating expense driven by loan origination volume. By contrast, interest and amortization expense on non-funding debt is a function of our capital structure and is therefore excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • they do not reflect every cash expenditure, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payment on our debt;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced or require improvements in the future, and Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirement for such replacements or improvements; and
  • they are not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended as alternatives to total revenue, net income (loss), net income attributable to the Company, or Diluted EPS or as an indicator of our operating performance and should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as measures of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations. We compensate for these limitations by using Adjusted Total Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA along with other comparative tools, together with U.S. GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. See below for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most comparable U.S. GAAP measures.

Before joining NOAA, he served for 32 years in the U.S. Navy, completing his service in 2017 as the Oceanographer of the Navy. His lifelong commitment to education, science, service, and stewardship has brought him a wealth and knowledge and a stellar reputation. RDML Gallaudet holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the U.S. Naval Academy and a Master’s and Doctorate Degree from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, all in oceanography.

“RDML Tim Gallaudet has been at the forefront leading the efforts to advance science and technology strategies for Artificial Intelligence and Unmanned Systems,” states Ted Curley, President and General Manager at iXblue Defense Systems. “His knowledge of the maritime industry and his familiarity with iXblue makes him a perfect partner in our goal to strengthen and grow our presence in the U.S. defense market.”

“Marine mapping is critical to advancing our understanding, the health, and the sustainable use of our oceans, and iXblue brings a capability to do this like none I have ever seen,” said RDML Gallaudet. “As a lifelong champion of ocean science and technology, I could not be more thrilled to partner with iXblue.”

DBS clinches global accolade for innovation in digital banking

 

DBS has been honoured as the global winner for Most Innovative in Digital Banking by Financial Times publication, The Banker, in its 2021 Innovation in Digital Banking Awards. The bank was also recognised as the Asia-Pacific winner, and won in the Cyber Security category for its Secure Access and Remote Working Solution.

The Banker’s Innovation in Digital Banking Awards recognise the most innovative banks across the world for their digital banking initiatives, strategy, and overall commitment to digital transformation. These awards, now in their second year, are the evolution of The Banker’s Technology Projects of the Year Awards.

Joy Macknight, editor of The Banker, said, “Congratulations to DBS for winning the Global and Asia-Pacific accolades in The Banker’s Innovation in Digital Banking Awards 2021. It is a fitting tribute to a bank that is renowned for being ahead of its peers in adopting emerging technologies that are reshaping the banking industry. During the past year, it launched: DBS Digital Exchange, a blockchain-based ecosystem for fundraising through asset tokenisation and secondary trading of digital assets including cryptocurrencies; NAV Planner, a feature-rich digital advisory solution powered by more than 100 artificial intelligence (AI) models; and a Covid contact-tracing solution using AI/machine learning. These initiatives are testament to DBS’ innovative spirit.”

Piyush Gupta, DBS CEO, said, “We are honoured to be recognised by The Banker for being the most innovative in digital banking globally. DBS has been studying and experimenting with emerging technologies over the years. We believe some of these have reached a tipping point, presenting new opportunities for growth. One area is asset digitalisation, which along with blockchain technologies, has the potential to reshape capital markets. Another is Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning, which we continue to leverage in order to provide customers with hyper-personalised financial solutions. DBS has been successful in our digital transformation over the years because of a pervasive culture of experimentation, agility and innovation, and we will continue on this path so as to be on top of the megatrends shaping the future of banking.”

Separately, DBS was also named Asia’s Best Bank and Asia’s Best Digital Bank by leading financial publication Euromoney in its regional Awards for Excellence 2021. This marks the fourth time that the bank has picked up both accolades, and the third consecutive year that DBS has been recognised by Euromoney as Asia’s Best Bank. Euromoney also named DBS Best Bank and Best Investment Bank in Singapore.

In its 2021 award citation naming DBS Asia’s Best Digital Bank, Euromoney noted: “DBS’ digital capability was tested to the core by Covid, and it not only stepped up but turned the situation to its advantage. From consumer to institutional, DBS used the opportunity to convert clients to digital channels, benefiting from improved economics as it did so. Before long the government was counting on the bank to disburse emergency payments to those under stress. Amid all this, DBS still found the time to do striking new things. The most impressive was the launch of the DBS Digital Exchange, the first instance worldwide of a major bank creating a new platform on this scale… On the wealth side, the DBS NAV Planner was also an important part of the bank’s vision to democratise wealth and increase financial literacy.”

The DBS Digital Exchange (DDEx) has enjoyed strong market traction since its launch in December 2020, with DBS recently announcing DDEx’s maiden Security Token Listing (STO) – the SGD 15 million DBS Digital Bond. The capabilities of DBS NAV Planner have also been further enhanced since its initial introduction in April 2020, with new features including an AI-powered digital investment advisory feature to help individual retail customers make better investment decisions, and a ‘Map Your Money’ interactive dashboard which can project a customer’s future retirement needs based on their current finances.

Global Market for Synthetic Rubbers to Witness Significant CAGR in Coming Years: P&S Intelligence

 

The burgeoning requirement for replacement tires and various other automotive parts, increasing demand for long-lasting rubber, soaring implementation of government initiatives for meeting the escalating need for rubber, mushrooming investments being made by rubber producers and their increasing production capacities, and rising industrialization rate are driving the expansion of the global synthetic rubber market. Because of these factors, the market is predicted to progress rapidly during 2021–2030, according to P&S Intelligence.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns were imposed by the governments of many countries to mitigate the spread of the infection. This caused massive disruptions in manufacturing and supply chain operations, thereby affecting the operations of many industries such as automotive, in which rubber is used extensively. Moreover, the lack of availability of raw materials, delay in trade and latex collection, and the imposition of restrictions on exports and imports caused the closing down of various industries. Because of these reasons, the demand for synthetic rubber fell sharply, which, in turn, affected the growth of the market.

The synthetic rubber market is classified into polybutadiene rubber (BR), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), styrene block copolymer (SBC), butyl rubber (IIR), acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), and ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM), based on product type. Amongst these, the SBR category dominated the market in 2020, and it is predicted to exhibit huge expansion during the forecast period. This is credited to the abrasion resistance characteristic of SBR, which makes it highly suitable for use in building and construction activities and also in healthcare and footwear industries.

Depending on application, the synthetic rubber market is divided into footwear, non-tire automotive, tire, adhesives & sealants, industrial components, and paints & coatings. Amongst these, the tire category contributed the highest revenue to the market in 2020, and it is predicted to grow sharply throughout the forecast period as well. This is ascribed to the surging requirement for replacement tires, because of the soaring sales of two-wheelers and four-wheelers.

Globally, Asia-Pacific (APAC) dominated the synthetic rubber market, both in terms of value and volume, in 2020, due to the high requirement for synthetic rubber in the tire and construction industries in the region. Moreover, many global automakers are setting up their manufacturing plants in the APAC countries to bolster their presence and expand their operations in the region. Currently, the automotive industry in China is flourishing, with a strong focus on manufacturing environment-friendly vehicles, which is, in turn, fueling the demand for synthetic rubber in the region.

The players operating in the global synthetic rubber market are actively focusing on launching products in order to strengthen their position. For example, researchers working at the Fraunhofer Institute developed a new type of synthetic rubber in April 2019. This product is 30–50% less abrasive than natural rubber. Furthermore, the initial tests conducted on the tires manufactured from biomimetic synthetic rubber BISYKA showed that their abrasiveness was less than the ones produced from natural rubber.

Some of the major synthetic rubber market players are Bridgestone Corporation, Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd., LANXESS AG, JSR Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Kumho Petrochemical Co., Ltd., and Denka Company Ltd.
