New York Mortgage Trust Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 02, 2016 (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, 2016.

Summary of Second Quarter 2016:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $11.2 million, or $0.10 per share.

  • Net interest income of $16.7 million.

  • Portfolio net interest margin of 321 basis points.

  • Book value per common share of $6.38 at June 30, 2016, delivering an economic return of 2% for the quarter.

  • Completed a residential structured financing transaction resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $167.7 million for the quarter.

  • Completed the acquisition on May 16, 2016 of the outstanding membership interests in RiverBanc LLC ("RiverBanc"), RB Multifamily Investors LLC ("RBMI") and RB Development Holding Company LLC ("RBDHC") that were not previously owned by the Company. In acquiring a 100% ownership interest in RiverBanc, the Company has internalized the management of its multifamily investments. The Company anticipates achieving certain synergies related to processes and personnel as a result of this internalization. RBMI and RBDHC are investment vehicles managed by RiverBanc.

  • Purchased approximately $98.7 million of Non-Agency RMBS backed by re-performing and non-performing loans during the quarter.

  • Declared second quarter dividend of $0.24 per common share that was paid on July 25, 2016.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We took significant steps during the second quarter to accelerate the transition of our portfolio to one focused increasingly on residential and multi-family credit assets. Consistent with this approach to capital allocation, we acquired an additional $98 million of distressed residential securities and $15 million of Freddie Mac K Series CMBS during the quarter, while reducing our net capital allocated to Agency RMBS by approximately 11%.

We expect this ongoing reallocation of capital will benefit our portfolio and our operating performance over the next several quarters as we believe that a greater focus in credit exposures in both the residential and multi-family sectors will provide better risk adjusted returns under the current economic market conditions. As part of our strategy to further capture the expected continued growth opportunity in the multi-family sector, we completed the internalization of RiverBanc during the second quarter. We anticipate a growing pipeline of multi-family investments in the coming quarters as a result of the internalization of RiverBanc and our increased capital commitment to this asset class.

The second quarter was marked by a continued difficult investment environment as evidenced by diminished daily trading volumes in non Treasury and Agency markets, due, in part, to reduced inventory positions and reduced risk taking tolerances at Wall Street firms. This new trading paradigm has reduced the investment opportunities available to our Company while lengthening the time to become fully invested. Our earnings for the second quarter were negatively impacted by a number of factors, including delays in redeploying capital into our target asset classes due to the challenging environment for new investments which has resulted in our operating at less than desired leverage levels. In addition, the lengthening of time required to clear loan sales in our distressed residential loan portfolio caused a transaction expected to close in the second quarter to be delayed until the third quarter. Even though we did not generate the desired realized gains in the second quarter, we continue to believe that an annualized return of 15% for our distressed residential loan portfolio is achievable for this year. We continue to focus on long term results while protecting the enterprise value of the Company, delivering a 9.8% annualized economic return for the first half of 2016.”

Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $11.2 million, a decrease of $2.5 million from the first quarter of 2016.

We generated net interest income of $16.7 million and portfolio net interest margin of 321 basis points, a decrease of $1.0 million and 12 basis points, respectively, from the first quarter of 2016. The decrease was primarily driven by:

  • A decrease in net interest income of $1.2 million from our Agency IO portfolio due to an increase in prepayment rates.

  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $0.6 million in our distressed residential portfolio due to an increase in interest expense of $0.8 million resulting from an increase in average liabilities during the period. This was partially offset by an increase in interest income of $0.2 million due to investments made in Non-Agency RMBS backed by re-performing and non-performing loans during the second quarter.

  • An increase in net interest income of $0.9 million from our multi-family portfolio due to an increase in average interest earning assets during the second quarter. The increase in average interest earnings can be attributed to new multi-family preferred equity investments made and investment securities purchased during the second quarter.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, we recognized other income of $10.1 million, primarily from the following:

  • Unrealized gains amounting to $0.8 million recognized on our multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts.

  • Realized gains of $1.8 million and unrealized losses of $0.7 million on our investment securities and related hedges, primarily related to our Agency IO portfolio.

  • Other income of $8.1 million, which is primarily from gains recognized as a result of the Company's re-measurement of its previously held membership interests in RiverBanc, RBMI, and RBDHC in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It also included income from our investments in unconsolidated entities, including income from our common and preferred equity ownership interests in RBMI until May 16, 2016, the date of acquisition.

The following table details the general, administrative and other expenses incurred during the first and second quarters of 2016:

Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans 2,740 3,194
Other 745 781
Total $9,936 $9,359

Total general, administrative and other expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were approximately $9.9 million, up from $9.4 million for the first quarter of 2016. Total expenses included base management and incentive fees of $3.0 million and expenses associated with direct operating costs of our distressed residential mortgage loans of $2.7 million. There was an increase in the Company's salaries and benefits during the quarter due to the internalization of RiverBanc into the Company, which was partially offset by a decrease in base management and incentive fees.
