We believe we now have the capital, liquidity, technology, campus and staffing necessary to further scale our business and grow to become the largest mortgage originator in the country," said Mat Ishbia, chairman and CEO of UWMC. "We welcome the shift to more of a purchase market and the pressure on margins as we believe our business model is built to outperform competitors under those conditions."

The company's board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share on the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, according to the report. The dividend is payable on July 6, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 10, 2021.
