New York Mortgage Trust Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

NEW YORK, May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq:NYMT) (“NYMT,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) today reported results for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

/EIN News/ -- Summary of First Quarter 2017:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $16.0 million, or $0.14 per share, and comprehensive income to common stockholders of $18.9 million, or $0.17 per share.
  • Net interest income of $13.9 million and portfolio net interest margin of 270 basis points.
  • Book value per common share of $6.08 at March 31, 2017, delivering an economic return of 2.4% for the quarter and an annualized economic return of 9.8%.
  • Declared first quarter dividend of $0.20 per common share that was paid on April 25, 2017. 
  • Completed the issuance of $138.0 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes due 2022 that resulted in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $127.0 million at an all in cost to the Company of approximately 8.24%.
  • Sold pools of distressed residential mortgage loans with a carrying value of approximately $50.9 million for aggregate proceeds of approximately $62.6 million, which resulted in a net realized gain, before income taxes, of approximately $11.7 million.
  • Purchased CMBS securities, including a first loss PO security issued by a Freddie Mac-sponsored multi-family K-Series securitization, for a gross purchase price of approximately $112.5 million.
  • Purchased Non-Agency RMBS backed by re-performing and non-performing loans for a gross purchase price of approximately $41.1 million.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The Company delivered a solid 2.4% economic return for the first quarter, or 9.8% on an annualized basis. Overall, markets generally rallied during the first quarter, with credit spreads tightening for many higher-yielding assets, including for our multi-family and distressed residential assets where we saw significant improvement in credit spreads from the fourth quarter of 2016. The Company was also able to take advantage of greater buy-side demand for distressed residential assets during the first quarter, completing the sale of approximately $51 million of distressed residential loans during the quarter for a realized pre-tax gain of $12 million. Collectively, these developments helped the Company generate GAAP net earnings of $0.14 per share and comprehensive income of $0.17 per share for the first quarter.

As previously announced, the Company received approximately $127 million in net proceeds from its convertible debt offering in January 2017. The Company has utilized those proceeds to help fund its acquisition of its targeted assets during the quarter, which included approximately $113 million of CMBS securities and approximately $41 million in distressed residential securities. Of significance, included in the CMBS investments during the first quarter was a $29 million investment in a first loss Freddie Mac K-Series securitization, which marks our first new investment in a K-Series securitization in over three years. These new investments had very little impact on first quarter results though, as approximately $104 million of the new investments settled toward the end of the first quarter. We anticipate these investments will provide a greater contribution to the Company’s earnings in the second quarter, which should more than offset the interest expense associated with the convertible debt.

Consistent with the Company’s previously stated intentions, the Company continued to transition its portfolio to one focused increasingly on residential and multi-family credit assets and continues to believe that a portfolio increasingly focused on these types of credit assets is well-suited to deliver sustainable positive economic returns over the longer term.”

First Quarter Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $16.0 million, an increase of $6.3 million from the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase is primarily due to an increase in other income in the first quarter as a result of increased sales activity in our distressed residential loan portfolio and an increase in net unrealized gains on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts primarily due to the tightening of credit spreads during the quarter.

We generated net interest income of $13.9 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 270 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The change in net interest income of $0.9 million from the fourth quarter of 2016 was primarily driven by:

  • An increase in interest expense of $2.0 million related to the issuance of $138.0 million principal amount of convertible notes in January 2017. 
  • An increase in net interest income of $0.6 million from our Agency IO portfolio in the first quarter due to a decrease in prepayment rates in the first quarter of 2017 from the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • An increase in net interest income of $0.5 million from our Agency ARMs and Agency fixed-rate RMBS portfolio due to a decrease in prepayment rates and decrease in average liabilities in the first quarter.
  • An increase in net interest income of $1.1 million from our multi-family portfolio due to an increase in average interest earning multi-family assets during the first quarter. The increase in average interest earning multi-family assets can be attributed to new multi-family CMBS investments made during the first quarter, which includes a first loss PO security issued by a Freddie Mac-sponsored multi-family K-Series securitization. In addition, average cost of funds decreased during the first quarter.
  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $1.2 million from our distressed residential portfolio due to a decrease in asset yields as well as an increase in financing costs in the first quarter.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, we recognized other income of $16.7 million, primarily from the following:

  • Net unrealized gains amounting to $1.4 million recognized on our multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts for the first quarter.
  • Realized losses of $2.4 million and unrealized gains of $1.5 million on our investment securities and related hedges, related to our Agency IO portfolio, for the first quarter.
  • Realized gains of $1.2 million on our investment securities related to our sale of CMBS securities during the first quarter.
  • Net realized gains of $12.0 million from the sale of pools of distressed residential mortgage loans during the first quarter.
  • Other income of $2.8 million, which primarily included income from our multi-family investments in unconsolidated entities during the first quarter.

The following table details the general, administrative and other expenses incurred during the first quarter of 2017 and the fourth quarter of 2016:

    Three Months Ended
General, Administrative and Other Expenses   March 31, 2017 December 31, 2016
Salaries, benefits and directors’ compensation   $ 2,835   $ 2,030  
Base management and incentive fees   3,078   1,303  
Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans   2,239   2,382  
Other general and administrative expenses   2,052   1,505  
Total   $ 10,204   $ 7,220  
 

Total general, administrative and other expenses for the first quarter of 2017 were approximately $10.2 million, up from $7.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase can be primarily attributed to incentive fees earned on our distressed residential loan strategy due to increased sales activity during the first quarter of 2017. The increase in salaries, benefits and directors' compensation can be attributed to an increase in estimated bonus compensation as well as an increase in stock based compensation expense due to the increase in number of employees from the internalization of RiverBanc and the issuance of restricted stock to these employees.
