Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The Company continues to deliver solid results, generating GAAP earnings per share of $0.08 and comprehensive earnings per share of $0.18 for the second quarter. Book value per common share at June 30, 2019 of $5.75 was unchanged from the prior quarter, resulting in a total economic return of 3.5% for the quarter. When combining operating results for the first two quarters of 2019, the Company has generated a total economic return of 8.8%, which represents a 17.7% return on an annualized basis, with comprehensive earnings per share of $0.47 exceeding common dividends paid to date in 2019 by 17.5%.

Our investment team remained active during the second quarter, sourcing and closing on more than $500 million in credit sensitive assets, bringing our total investment portfolio to $4.2 billion at June 30, 2019. To fund a portion of this investment activity, the Company continued to opportunistically access the public capital markets during the second quarter through a follow-on offering and an at-the-market equity offering program, raising aggregate net proceeds of $136.7 million at levels that were 4% accretive to our current book value.

               

While the last twelve months for the Company have been filled with new hires, an increase in our equity capital base to over $1.7 billion and the acquisition of more than $2.0 billion in new credit investments, the NYMT team remains focused on fulfilling its objective to deliver long-term stable distributions to our stockholders over changing economic conditions - having delivered a total economic return of 13.7% over the twelve months ended June 30, 2019 while maintaining a dividend payment rate of $0.20 per share, our tenth straight quarter at that level."

Jason Serrano, NYMT's President, added: "Against a slowing macroeconomic backdrop, we are excited about our ability to produce compelling risk adjusted returns while utilizing conservative levels of recourse leverage, 1.8x as of June 30, 2019.  In the quarter, credit spreads across multi-family and single-family markets tightened in sympathy with the broader markets.  Agency MBS spreads have widened year to date, even as investment grade corporate credit spreads have tightened.  Our rotation into credit continues to add value to our shareholders, as agency MBS exposure as a percentage of our investment portfolio has declined by 21.1% through the first six months of 2019 and represents just 9.8% of our total equity as of June 30, 2019.  We believe our corporate liquidity and ability to take advantage of mispricing through proprietary sourcing channels in the residential credit sector has never been stronger."

Second Quarter Earnings Summary

Net Income

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $16.5 million as compared to $38.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

We generated net interest income of $25.7 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 216 basis points for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to net interest income of $26.2 million and a portfolio net interest margin of 240 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.  The change in net interest income in the second quarter was primarily driven by:

  • A decrease of $1.9 million in net interest income on our residential credit portfolio due to lower asset yields in the second quarter.  In the first quarter, there was an increase in delinquent interest collected on loans that were past due or non-accrual as of the beginning of the period. 

  • An increase of $1.7 million in net interest income on our multi-family credit portfolio primarily from income recognized on our first loss PO CMBS investments purchased in the latter part of the first quarter.

  • A decrease of $0.3 million in net interest income on our Agency RMBS portfolio primarily due to an increase in prepayment rates.

The main components of other income for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively, are detailed in the following table (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
Other Income   June 30, 2019   March 31, 2019
Recovery of loan losses   $ 1,296     $ 1,065  
Realized gain on investment securities and related hedges, net       16,801  
Realized gain on distressed and other residential mortgage loans at carrying value, net   2,054     2,079  
Net gain on distressed and other residential mortgage loans at fair value   12,271     11,010  
Unrealized loss on investment securities and related hedges, net   (15,007 )   (14,586 )
Unrealized gain on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts, net   5,207     9,410  
Loss on extinguishment of debt       (2,857 )
Income from real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities       215  
Other income   2,740     7,728  
Total other income   $ 8,561     $ 30,865  

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, we recognized other income of $8.6 million primarily comprised of the following:

  • Total net gain of $12.3 million from our distressed and other residential mortgage loans held at fair value,  comprised of a $9.9 million unrealized gain due to tightening credit spreads during the quarter and a $2.4 million realized gain during the period resulting primarily from sale activity.

  • Realized gain of $2.1 million from our distressed and other residential mortgage loans at carrying value, net resulting primarily from sale activity during the quarter.

  • Unrealized loss of $15.0 million from our interest rate swaps accounted for as trading instruments, which is offset by unrealized gains on our available for sale securities of $20.1 million reported as a component of other comprehensive income ("OCI").

  • Unrealized gain of $5.2 million on our Consolidated K-Series investments driven primarily by tightening credit spreads.
  • Other income of $2.7 million comprised primarily of $1.7 million in unrealized gains on joint venture equity investments, $1.7 million in income from preferred equity investments accounted for as investments in unconsolidated entities, and a $0.5 million gain on early redemption of a preferred equity investment.  The Company also recognized $1.5 million in net losses from our interest in a real estate development property, which will be offset by a $0.7 million non-controlling interest share of these losses.

The following table details the general and administrative expenses for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
General and Administrative Expenses   June 30, 2019   March 31, 2019
Salaries, benefits and directors' compensation   $ 6,492     $ 5,671  
Base management and incentive fees   543     723  
Other general and administrative expenses   2,780     2,516  
Total general and administrative expenses   $ 9,815     $ 8,910  

The change in general and administrative expenses is primarily related to the annual awards in equity compensation paid to non-employee directors of the Company in the second quarter.

The following table sets out the operating expenses related to our distressed and other residential mortgage loans and the real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
Operating Expenses   June 30, 2019   March 31, 2019
Expenses related to distressed and other residential mortgage loans   $ 2,579     $ 3,252  
Expenses related to real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities       482  
Total operating expenses   $ 2,579     $ 3,734  

The decrease in operating expenses in the second quarter can be primarily attributed to a decrease in servicing fees on distressed and other residential mortgage loans and a reduction in expenses related to real estate held for sale in consolidated variable interest entities as a result of the sale of a multi-family apartment property in February 2019.

Comprehensive Income

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, we reported comprehensive income to common stockholders of $36.6 million, as compared to $51.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. The main components of comprehensive income for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively, are detailed in the following table (dollar amounts in thousands):

    Three Months Ended
    June 30, 2019   March 31, 2019
NET INCOME ATTRIBUTABLE TO COMPANY'S COMMON STOCKHOLDERS   $ 16,478     $ 38,214  
OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME        
Increase (decrease) in fair value of available for sale securities        
Agency RMBS   12,971     16,796  
Non-Agency RMBS   1,074     4,623  
CMBS   6,076     5,293  
ABS   (29 )    
Total   20,092     26,712  
Reclassification adjustment for net gain included in net income - CMBS       (13,665 )
TOTAL OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME   20,092     13,047  
COMPREHENSIVE INCOME ATTRIBUTABLE TO COMPANY'S COMMON STOCKHOLDERS   $ 36,570     $ 51,261  
                 

The change in OCI can be attributed primarily to the reclassification of unrealized gains reported in OCI to net income in relation to the sale of certain multi-family CMBS investments in the first quarter.  In addition, pricing on our Agency RMBS, non-Agency RMBS and CMBS improved since March 31, 2019 contributing $0.10 per share in comprehensive income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.
