 PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Countrywide Credit Industries Inc. (NYSE: CCR), the nation's largest residential mortgage lender and servicer, announced today that the company produced $4.5 billion of residential home mortgages in September 1993, 42 percent higher than the $3.2 billion produced in September 1992. The company's pipeline of loans in process rose to $9.1 billion at Sept. 30, 1993, vs. $9.0 billion at Aug. 31, 1993, and $6.2 billion at Sept. 30, 1992.
 The company's single-family mortgage servicing portfolio rose to $74.1 billion at Sept. 30, 1993, 72 percent higher than the $43.0 billion portfolio at Sept. 30, 1992. Countrywide's servicing portfolio had a weighted average coupon of 7.5 percent at the end of September 1993, compared to 8.5 percent at the end of September 1992. Prepayments in the company's servicing portfolio totaled $2.4 billion in September 1993.
 "Countrywide's loan activity remained healthy in all of its production divisions," said Stanford L. Kurland, senior managing director and chief operating officer. "The impact of its expansion strategies is taking hold as demonstrated by continued growth in the retail division which produced a record $695 million in September. Countrywide will maintain efforts to increase its share of the mortgage market by executing a well-planned and disciplined growth strategy in its four production divisions. This growth in production capability is the most effective way to build a valuable servicing portfolio."

Refinances represented 75 percent of total fundings, compared to 78 percent in September 1992. Purchase mortgage activity rose to $1.1 billion in September 1993, vs. $0.7 billion in September 1992.
