Subsequent Events

On October 13, 2017, the Company closed on an underwritten public offering of 5,400,000 shares of the Company's 8.00% Series D Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, including 400,000 shares issued pursuant to the exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option. The net proceeds to the Company from the issuance of its Series D Preferred Stock amounts to approximately $130.4 million after deduction of underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.

The Company used substantially all of the net proceeds from the issuance of the Series D Preferred Stock to purchase $58.7 million in multi-family CMBS, to fund a $4.7 million preferred equity investment and the remainder to purchase Agency RMBS.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The Company delivered a 3.8% economic return for the third quarter and an 11.3% annualized economic return for the first nine months of the year. The Company had GAAP earnings of $0.22 per share and comprehensive earnings of $0.23 per share for the third quarter. As of September 30, 2017, the Company’s book value per common share was $6.05, up $0.03 from the previous quarter.

The credit markets continued their improvement from the second quarter into the third quarter with spreads in many markets tightening to levels not seen since before the financial crisis. In light of the run up in valuations on certain credit assets, the Company elected to opportunistically sell approximately $42 million in CMBS, a number of which had been acquired by the Company during the prior twelve months, for a realized gain of approximately $4.9 million. In addition to the sales of these multi-family securities, the Company also exited three multi-family joint ventures for total proceeds of approximately $26 million, realizing income of $3.7 million. The Company’s distressed loan portfolio also contributed nicely to the Company’s results for the quarter, with loan sales generating a pre-tax gain of $7.3 million. The Company used a substantial portion of the net sales proceeds generated during the quarter to acquire or fund additional investments, including $44 million in residential loans and $35 million in preferred equity investments.

Subsequent to quarter end, on October 13, 2017, the Company issued $135 million of its 8% Series D Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, which will lower our average long-term cost of capital. The Company has invested approximately $63 million of the proceeds into multi-family investments, including a first loss Freddie Mac K series securitization, making this security the second Freddie Mac first loss security acquired by the Company in 2017, with the balance going into our Agency MBS strategy. We continue to believe that our portfolio is well-positioned to adapt to changing interest rate and economic market conditions."

Third Quarter Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $24.6 million as compared to $11.1 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The $13.5 million increase is primarily due to increased sales activity in our distressed residential loan portfolio, realized gains on sale of CMBS investments and income recognized on our joint venture investments and mezzanine loans.

We generated net interest income of $13.3 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 281 basis points for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 as compared to net interest income of $15.7 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 312 basis points for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The decrease in net interest income was primarily driven by a decrease in net interest income of approximately $2.7 million from our distressed residential portfolio due to a decrease in average interest earning assets in the third quarter.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, we recognized other income of $24.9 million as compared to other income of $8.2 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The increase in other income of $16.7 million is primarily driven by:

  • An increase in realized gains on distressed residential mortgage loans of $4.3 million resulting from increased sales activity.
  • An increase in other income of $4.6 million, which is primarily due to income recognized from redemption of three of the Company's joint venture investments and a mezzanine loan payoff during the period.
  • An increase in realized gain on investment securities and related hedges primarily due to an increase in realized gains from the sale of CMBS during the quarter.
  • An increase in net unrealized gains on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts of $0.9 million primarily due to a tightening of credit spreads on multi-family CMBS acquired by us during the year.

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

Three Months Ended
General and Administrative Expenses September 30, 2017 June 30, 2017
Salaries, benefits and directors’ compensation $2,456 $2,920
Base management and incentive fees 1,386 (109)
Other general and administrative expenses 1,786 2,145
Total general and administrative expenses $5,628 $4,956

Total general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were approximately $5.6 million as compared to total general and administrative expenses of approximately $5.0 million for the second quarter of 2017. The increase in general and administrative expenses can be primarily attributed to the incentive fee expense on our distressed residential loan strategy due to increased sales activity during the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the second 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 third quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2017 (dollar amounts in thousands):

Three Months Ended
Operating Expenses September 30, 2017 June 30, 2017
Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans $2,225 $2,218
Expenses related to operating real estate and real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities 3,143 4,415
Total operating expenses $5,368 $6,633

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $5.4 million as compared to $6.6 million for the second quarter of 2017. The decrease in total operating expenses of $1.3 million is primarily attributable to non-recognition of depreciation and amortization expense in the third quarter due to the reclassification of the two multi-family apartment properties that are consolidated in the Company's financial statements in accordance with GAAP from operating real estate held in consolidated variable interest entities to real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities.

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 September 30, 2017 are as follows (dollar amounts in thousands):
