Share:

NEW YORK, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:NYMT) ("NYMT," the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") today reported results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Summary of Second Quarter 2018:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $23.8 million, or $0.21 per share (basic), and comprehensive income to common stockholders of $17.2 million, or $0.15 per share.
  • Net interest income of $17.5 million and portfolio net interest margin of 239 basis points.
  • Book value per common share of $5.76 at June 30, 2018, a decrease of less than 1% from March 31, 2018, resulting in an economic return of 2.9% for the quarter and an annualized economic return of 5.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Declared second quarter dividend of $0.20 per common share that was paid on July 26, 2018.
  • Issued and sold 12,145,144 shares of common stock, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $73.8 million, under our at-the-market equity offering program.      

Subsequent Developments:

The Company announced today that it had begun the process to internalize the management of its distressed residential loan strategy as part of an effort to expand its capabilities in self managing, sourcing and creating single family residential credit assets.  The Company has recently hired ten investment professionals to build and expand its single family residential credit asset platform.   The Company expects that the single family residential credit team will ultimately be comprised of 15 to 20 professionals in total. The Company believes the internalization of the management of the distressed residential loans, as well as expanded capabilities in sourcing and originating will strengthen the Company's ability to capitalize on future credit investment opportunities.

In connection with the internalization, the Company notified Headlands Asset Management, the external manager of its distressed residential loan portfolio, that it will allow its management agreement with the manager to expire on June 30, 2019.   This represents a continuation of steps taken in recent years by the Company to fully internalize its investment portfolio management.  In May 2016, the Company announced the internalization of its multi-family credit investment platform through the acquisition of RiverBanc LLC.  During the second quarter, the Company completely exited out of its Agency IO strategy, which had been managed externally prior to January 1, 2018.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The Company delivered another quarter of stable earnings and book value, with GAAP EPS of $0.21 per common share and book value at $5.76, down $0.03 from the previous quarter. Multi-Family continued to be the significant contributor during the quarter, with both net interest income and unrealized gains increasing from the prior quarter. The Company was opportunistic in raising capital through its at-the-market equity offering program raising approximately $73.8 million during the quarter, resulting in $0.03 accretion to overall book value.

As the Company has grown in recent years, we have taken steps to internalize the investment management of our various investment portfolios. In May 2016, we acquired our external manager for our multi-family credit investments and during the quarter, we exited our Agency IO portfolio, which had been externally managed. We are pleased to announce that we have begun the process to internalize the management of our distressed residential loan strategy.  As part of an effort to expand our capabilities in self managing, sourcing and creating single family residential credit assets, we have added ten investment professionals to our single family residential credit investment team.

In connection with this internalization, we provided Headlands notice that we intend to cause our management agreement with them to expire when its term ends in June 2019.  Headlands has been a valued and trusted partner and advisor to us since 2010 and we are grateful for their many contributions to our growth.

We believe that internalization of all our credit investing functions, including both multi-family and single family residential, will strengthen the Company's ability to identify and secure future investment opportunities in this key strategic area."

Second Quarter Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $23.8 million as compared to $23.7 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

We generated net interest income of $17.5 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 239 basis points for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 as compared to net interest income of $19.8 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 286 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  The $2.3 million decrease in net interest income in the second quarter was primarily due to lower net interest income generated by our distressed residential portfolio.  Our distressed residential portfolio experienced a decrease in asset yield of 174 basis points and an increase in cost of funds of 42 basis points, which resulted in a decline in net interest margin of $2.4 million in this portfolio as compared to the prior quarter.  The decline in net interest margin in the Company's distressed residential portfolio is mainly attributable to changes in expected cash flows resulting from greater loan sale activity in the second quarter as compared to the first quarter of 2018.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, we recognized other income of $20.0 million as compared to other income of $21.0 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  The change in other income is primarily comprised of the following:

  • An increase in net unrealized gains on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts of $4.5 million.
  • An increase in realized gains on residential mortgage loans, including distressed residential mortgage loans of $3.1 million.
  • An increase in net realized loss on investment securities and related hedges of $5.2 million resulting from the final liquidation of our Agency IO portfolio, partially offset by an increase in unrealized loss recovery of $4.7 million previously recognized on these assets and included in the net unrealized gain on investment securities and related hedges as discussed below.
  • An increase in net unrealized gain on investment securities and related hedges of $0.9 million primarily consisting of a $4.7 million increase in gain from our Agency IO portfolio offset by a $3.8 million increase in unrealized loss from our interest rate swaps accounted for as trading instruments for accounting purposes.
  • A decrease in other income of $3.8 million, which is due to a $2.1 million impairment loss recognized on the real estate development property owned through the Company's 50% interest in an entity that owns and develops land and residential homes in Kiawah Island, SC.  The Company's $2.1 million impairment loss is partially offset by the $1.0 million non-controlling interest share of the loss. In addition, the first quarter activity included a $2.3 million gain recognized by a consolidated variable interest entity from the sale of its multi-family apartment property in March 2018.

The following table details the general and administrative expenses for the quarters ended June 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018 respectively (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
General and Administrative Expenses   June 30, 2018   March 31, 2018
Salaries, benefits and directors' compensation   $ 3,173     $ 2,556  
Base management and incentive fees   809     833  
Other general and administrative expenses   2,103     2,100  
Total general and administrative expenses   $ 6,085     $ 5,489  

The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily related to the annual awards in equity compensation paid to the board of directors in the second quarter.

The following table sets out the operating expenses related to our distressed residential mortgage loans and the operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities for the quarters ended June 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
Operating Expenses   June 30, 2018   March 31, 2018
Expenses related to distressed residential mortgage loans   $ 1,811     $ 1,603  
Expenses related to operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities   873     1,606  
Total operating expenses   $ 2,684     $ 3,209  
 

The decrease in operating expenses in the second quarter can be primarily attributed to a decrease in expenses related to our  operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities due to the sale of a multi-family apartment property in the prior quarter.

The results of operations applicable to the operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities included in the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 are as follows (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended

Net income from operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities   380  
Net income from operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities attributable to non-controlling interest   (274 )
