About New York Mortgage Trust

New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. is a Maryland corporation that has elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”). NYMT is an internally managed real estate investment trust, or REIT, which invests in mortgage-related and financial assets and targets residential mortgage loans, including second mortgages and loans sourced from distressed markets, multi-family CMBS, direct financing to owners of multi-family properties through mezzanine loans and preferred equity investments and other commercial real estate-related investments, Agency RMBS consisting of fixed-rate, adjustable-rate and hybrid adjustable-rate RMBS and Agency IOs consisting of interest only and inverse interest-only RMBS that represent the right to the interest component of the cash flow from a pool of mortgage loans. RiverBanc LLC, The Midway Group, L.P. and Headlands Asset Management, LLC provide investment management services to the Company with respect to certain of its targeted asset classes. For a list of defined terms used from time to time in this press release, see “Defined Terms” below.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented: “We manage the Company’s business with three goals in mind - to provide stable distributions, to maintain a stable book value and to identify and execute transactions that provide opportunistic growth. The 2015 fiscal year has been a very challenging year for the Company’s portfolio. A volatile interest rate environment coupled with ever-constant uncertainty around monetary policy, inconsistent economic data and an overall lack of market liquidity for certain security segments have all weighed heavily on our strategy and performance year to date. In light of these challenges, for the first time in over 3 years, we reduced our dividend payout ratio to $0.24 per share from $0.27. Our decision to reduce the quarterly dividend in September was primarily a function of our earnings performance year to date and our view of the current return environment for new investments. In our view, the supply of investment opportunities that we believe can deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns has declined, and that has made capital reinvestment more difficult in recent quarters. In response to this investment environment, we have maintained a defensive posture, electing to remain under-invested rather than deploying capital to investment strategies that may not satisfy our return criteria. This defensive strategy has resulted in lower current earnings but has delivered a stable book value over the course of the quarter.

Our distressed residential loan portfolio delivered the gains that we had anticipated earlier this year, generating over $24 million in gross realized gains from sales during the quarter, which are gains that were not previously reflected in our earnings or book value. As discussed previously, we initiated a residential second lien program during the third quarter of 2015 and continue to build out our network of lenders. While we believe this product will provide an attractive income stream for the Company over the long term, the current low interest rate environment has limited the overall consumer demand for this product and thus our ability to accumulate these loans is at a slower pace than originally planned.

We continue to concentrate on our credit residential strategy and remain focused on investment opportunities that will provide attractive long term potential returns."

Net Interest Income

The decrease in net interest income of approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the corresponding period in 2014 was driven by:

  • An increase in net interest income of approximately $5.0 million in our distressed residential loan portfolio due to an increase in average interest earning assets in this portfolio. Average interest earning assets in this portfolio increased to $591.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to $254.7 million in the corresponding period in 2014.

  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $1.8 million and $0.9 million in our Agency IO and Agency RMBS portfolios, respectively, due to a decrease in average interest earning assets in these portfolios and higher prepayment rates.

  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $0.8 million in our multi-family portfolio due to a reduction in this portfolio’s average interest earning assets.

  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $2.4 million due to the sale of CLO securities in the second quarter of 2015.

Other Income

The decrease in other income of approximately $12.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the corresponding period in 2014 was driven by:

  • A decrease in realized gain on investment securities and related hedges of $20.0 million. Our Agency IO portfolio experienced an increase in realized losses on its derivative instruments of $3.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to the same period in 2014. In addition, realized gains in our multi-family portfolio decreased by $16.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 due to the sale of a single multi-family CMBS in the third quarter of 2014 that resulted in a realized gain of $16.5 million.

  • An increase in net unrealized loss on investment securities and related hedges of $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, primarily related to our Agency IO portfolio. For the three months ended September 30, 2015, our Agency IO portfolio was negatively impacted by increased prepayment levels and overall interest rate volatility.

  • A decline in net unrealized gains on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts of $20.3 million due to widening credit spreads in the third quarter of 2015.

  • An increase in realized gains on distressed residential mortgage loans of $26.4 million due primarily to the sale of two pools of distressed residential mortgage loans with a carrying value of $120.3 million for aggregate proceeds of approximately $144.2 million in September 2015.

Comparative Expenses (dollar amounts in thousands)

Three Months Ended September 30,
General, Administrative and Other Expenses2015 2014 $ Change
Salaries, benefits and directors’ compensation$1,196 $1,244 $(48)
Base management and incentive fees3,676 7,752 (4,076)
Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans3,261 1,491 1,770
Other1,697 1,126 571
Total$9,830 $11,613 $(1,783)

The decrease in base management and incentive fees for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014 was primarily driven by a decrease in incentive compensation earned by RiverBanc. In the third quarter of 2014, RiverBanc earned incentive compensation from the sale of the multi-family CMBS security that generated $16.5 million in realized gains.

The increase in expenses related to distressed residential mortgage loans for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014 is due to a higher average balance of loans outstanding, thereby resulting in higher servicing costs, work-out costs and due diligence costs.

Income Tax Expense

The increase in income tax expense of approximately $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014 was primarily due to increased loan sale activity in our distressed residential loan portfolio during the third quarter of 2015 as compared to third quarter of 2014. The realized gain on sale from loan activity is transacted in a taxable REIT subsidiary for REIT compliance purposes and accordingly is subject to local, state and federal taxes.
