Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The Company had GAAP earnings per share of $0.02 and comprehensive earnings per share of $0.11 for the fourth quarter and, importantly, held book value per common share steady at $5.65, down just 1% from the prior quarter. For the year, the Company generated GAAP earnings per share of $0.62 and $78.7 million in net interest margin, an increase of 36% from the prior year. The Company’s ability to maintain a stable book value in the face of difficult market conditions for much of the year, particularly in the latter half of the fourth quarter, helped the Company deliver an economic return of 2.3% for the quarter and 7.5% for the year - solid results despite the challenging operating environment. Fourth quarter results were largely impacted by year end spread widening, much of which has reversed in January. The Company opportunistically accessed the capital markets during the fourth quarter, completing an accretive raise of approximately $85 million of common equity, bringing total capital raised during the year to approximately $260.3 million, all of which was accretive to book value.

2018 was a transformational year for the Company.  We moved to internalize our last externally-managed business, residential distressed credit, adding a team of professionals that not only covers distressed residential assets but increases our capabilities across many other residential credit opportunities.  In January 2019, the Company hired Jason Serrano as our President. Jason has extensive experience in all aspects of residential investing and his leadership, ability and vision are welcome additions to our firm.  For the year the Company expanded its investment portfolio by 33% and its capital base by 21%, originating or acquiring over $1.3 billion in predominately credit assets, including $360 million in multifamily credit and $885 million in residential credit, a new single-year record for the Company.

We are excited about the year ahead, having added approximately $900 million of new investments in the fourth quarter, most of which were funded in December and will start to contribute to earnings in a meaningful way in the first quarter.  We raised approximately $84 million of common equity in the first quarter of 2019, bringing the Company’s common equity market capitalization to over $1 billion. We believe the Company is well-positioned to capitalize on its recent success and expand its credit focused investment portfolio, which we believe will continue to deliver long-term stable dividends while preserving book value for our shareholders."

Fourth Quarter Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.7 million as compared to $28.0 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

The main components of other income for the quarters ended December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018, respectively, are detailed in the following table (dollar amounts in thousands):

  Three Months Ended
Other Income (Loss) December 31, 2018 September 30, 2018
(Provision for) recovery of loan losses $(2,492) $840

Other income 7,589  4,757 
Total other income $1,217  $24,303 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, we recognized other income of $1.2 million primarily comprised of the following:

  • Unrealized gain of $5.7 million on our Consolidated K-Series investments.
  • Net gain of $8.1 million from our distressed and other residential mortgage loans held at fair value, primarily from $5.0 million unrealized gains and $3.1 million realized gains during the period.

  • Unrealized loss of $15.5 million from our interest rate swaps accounted for as trading instruments.               

The following table details the general and administrative expenses for the quarters ended December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands):

Other general and administrative expenses 2,445  1,977 
Total general and administrative expenses $9,620  $7,040 
         

The change in general and administrative expenses is primarily related to an increase in management fees during the period.

Total operating expenses $4,471  $2,872 
         

The increase in operating expenses in the fourth quarter is primarily attributed to growth in our residential credit portfolio and includes due diligence expenses for the $688.7 million of loan purchases during the quarter.
