New York Mortgage Trust Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 03, 2017 (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, 2017.

Summary of Second Quarter 2017:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $11.1 million, or $0.10 per share, and comprehensive income to common stockholders of $14.9 million, or $0.13 per share.
  • Net interest income of $15.7 million and portfolio net interest margin of 312 basis points.
  • Book value per common share of $6.02 at June 30, 2017, delivering an economic return of 2.3% for the quarter and an annualized economic return of 9.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2017.
  • Declared second quarter dividend of $0.20 per common share that was paid on July 25, 2017.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The Company delivered a 2.3% economic return for the second quarter and a 9.5% annualized economic return for the first six months of the year. The Company had GAAP earnings of $0.10 per share and comprehensive earnings of $0.13 per share for the second quarter. The Company’s net interest margin improved to 312 basis points from 270 basis points in the first quarter, largely due to improved net margin in our distressed residential loan portfolio and increased average interest earning assets in our CMBS multifamily portfolio.

The credit markets continued to improve in the second quarter with spreads in many markets tightening to levels not seen in many years. This has benefited our current residential and multi-family portfolios, both in our securities investments as well as our direct lending. We expect to profitably exit several multi-family JV equity investments that were made over the last two years in the third quarter. We will continue to participate in the Freddie Mac K Series multi-family program and expect an additional opportunity to invest in a first loss security in 2017. Our portfolio margin will benefit in the third quarter from the $26.3 million preferred equity investment we closed in July. This investment has an expected return of over 12%. While the consummation of these types of credit investments continue to involve significant lead times, they remain an attractive use of capital that we will continue to pursue with vigor.

While competition for certain credit assets continues to be crowded, our diverse portfolio investment strategy allows us to seek other attractive opportunities and monetize previous investment decisions. Given the prevailing market conditions for the sourcing of new investments in credit assets, we will also consider new investments in non-credit assets that we believe will compensate us appropriately for the risks associated with them. We believe that our portfolio is well-positioned to adapt to changing market and economic conditions."

Second Quarter Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $11.1 million as compared to $16.0 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The $4.9 million decrease is primarily due to lower gains from decreased sales activity in our distressed residential loan portfolio partially offset by increased net interest margin and recovery of incentive fees.

We generated net interest income of $15.7 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 312 basis points for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 as compared to 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 increase in net interest income of $1.8 million and improved net margin of 42 basis points was primarily driven by:

  • An increase in net interest income of $1.3 million from our multi-family portfolio due to an increase in average interest earning multi-family CMBS assets resulting from purchases at the end of the first quarter that were held for the entirety of the second quarter.
  • An increase in net interest income of approximately $1.4 million from our distressed residential portfolio due to an increase in asset yields in the second quarter.
  • A decrease in net interest income of $0.4 million from our Agency IO portfolio in the second quarter primarily related to lower asset yields resulting from increased prepayment rates and higher financing costs in the second quarter.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, we recognized other income of $8.2 million as compared to other income of $16.7 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The decrease in other income of $8.5 million is primarily driven by:

  • A decrease in realized gains on distressed residential mortgage loans of $9.6 million resulting from decreased sales activity.
  • A decrease in net unrealized gains on investment securities and related hedges of $2.6 million primarily related to a decrease in pricing on our Agency IO portfolio.
  • An increase in realized gain on investment securities and related hedges of $2.3 million primarily due to increases in net gains recognized on investment securities and related hedges in the Agency IO portfolio partially offset by a decrease in realized gains on CMBS.
  • An increase in income from operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities of $2.3 million during the second quarter related to the consolidation in accordance with GAAP of two multi-family apartment properties in which the Company has preferred equity investments.
  • A decrease in other income of $0.6 million primarily due to a decrease in income on our investments in unconsolidated entities.

The following table details the general and administrative expenses incurred during the second quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2017 (dollar amounts in thousands):

Three Months Ended
General and Administrative Expenses June 30, 2017 March 31, 2017
Salaries, benefits and directors’ compensation $2,920 $2,835
Base management and incentive fees (109) 3,078
Other general and administrative expenses 2,145 2,052
Total general and administrative expenses $4,956 $7,965

Total general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2017 were approximately $5.0 million as compared to total general and administrative expenses of approximately $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2017. The decrease in general and administrative expenses of $3.0 million can be primarily attributed to the recovery of incentive fee expense on our distressed residential loan strategy due to lower gains from decreased sales activity during the second quarter of 2017 as compared to the first quarter of 2017.

The following table details the operating expenses related to our distressed residential mortgage loans and the consolidated multi-family apartment properties during the second quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2017 (dollar amounts in thousands):

Three Months Ended
Operating Expenses June 30, 2017 March 31, 2017
Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans $2,218 $2,239
Expenses related to operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities 4,415
Total operating expenses $6,633 $2,239

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 were $6.6 million as compared to $2.2 million for the first quarter of 2017. The increase in total operating expenses of $4.4 million is primarily attributable to recognition of expenses related to consolidated multi-family apartment properties beginning in the second quarter of 2017.

The results of operations applicable to the consolidated multi-family apartment properties included in the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 are as follows (dollar amounts in thousands):
