Colony Credit Real Estate, Inc. (NYSE: CLNC) (“Colony Credit Real Estate” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Kevin P. Traenkle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Colony Credit Real Estate, commented, “2019 is off to a good start for Colony Credit Real Estate. Our operating performance is on budget and we have successfully executed the first of our planned strategic transactions -- the disposal of approximately 89% of our interests in real estate private equity funds. The aggregate sales price of approximately $142 million is in line with the Company’s carrying value on such interests. Furthermore, the Company has already received $63 million in proceeds, with the substantial portion of the remaining $79 million of proceeds anticipated in the second quarter of 2019.”

Mr. Traenkle added, “As these private equity interests did not meaningfully contribute to the Company’s 2018 core earnings, we expect the reinvestment of these proceeds into targeted assets to be highly accretive.”

First Quarter 2019 Significant Developments and Subsequent Events

  • First quarter 2019 GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $14.9 million, or $0.11 per common share, and core earnings of $11.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. Excluding: (i) $35.5 million of realized losses related to completed foreclosure proceedings under a mezzanine loan; and (ii) $2.0 million of realized losses and transactions costs associated with the sale of real estate private equity interests: core earnings of $49.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definitions

Core Earnings

We present Core Earnings, which is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure of our performance. We believe that Core Earnings provides meaningful information to consider in addition to our net income and cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP” or “GAAP”). This supplemental financial measure helps us to evaluate our performance excluding the effects of certain transactions and U.S. GAAP adjustments that we believe are not necessarily indicative of our current portfolio and operations. We also use Core Earnings to determine the incentive fees we pay to our Manager. For information on the fees we pay our Manager, see Note 11, “Related Party Arrangements” to our consolidated financial statements included in Form 10-Q to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In addition, we believe that our investors also use Core Earnings or a comparable supplemental performance measure to evaluate and compare the performance of us and our peers, and as such, we believe that the disclosure of Core Earnings is useful to our investors.

We define Core Earnings as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) attributable to our common stockholders (or, without duplication, the owners of the common equity of our direct subsidiaries, such as our OP) and excluding (i) non-cash equity compensation expense, (ii) the expenses incurred in connection with our formation, (iii) the incentive fee, (iv) acquisition costs from successful acquisitions, (v) depreciation and amortization, (vi) any unrealized gains or losses or other similar non-cash items that are included in net income for the current quarter, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income or loss, or in net income, (vii) one-time events pursuant to changes in U.S. GAAP and (viii) certain material non-cash income or expense items that in the judgment of management should not be included in Core Earnings. For clauses (vii) and (viii), such exclusions shall only be applied after discussions between our Manager and our independent directors and after approval by a majority of our independent directors. Core Earnings reflects adjustments to U.S. GAAP net income to exclude impairment of real estate and provision for loan losses. Such impairment and losses may ultimately be realized, in part or full, upon a sale or monetization of the related investments and such realized losses would be reflected in Core Earnings.

Core Earnings does not represent net income or cash generated from operating activities and should not be considered as an alternative to U.S. GAAP net income or an indication of our cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, a measure of our liquidity, or an indication of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. In addition, our methodology for calculating Core Earnings may differ from methodologies employed by other companies to calculate the same or similar non-GAAP supplemental financial measures, and accordingly, our reported Core Earnings may not be comparable to the Core Earnings reported by other companies.

The Company calculates Core Earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, based on a weighted average number of common shares and operating partnership units (held by members other than the Company or its subsidiaries).
