NEW YORK, Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq:NYMT) (“NYMT,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) today reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Summary of Third Quarter 2016:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $20.0 million, or $0.18 per share.

  • Net interest income of $15.5 million.
  • Portfolio net interest margin of 282 basis points.
  • Book value per common share of $6.34 at September 30, 2016, delivering an economic return of 3.1% for the quarter and 8.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
  • Sold distressed residential mortgage loans with a carrying value of approximately $30.4 million for aggregate proceeds of approximately $37.1 million, which resulted in a net realized gain, before income taxes, of approximately $6.7 million.
  • Funded $32.4 million of preferred equity investments in multi-family properties.
  • Purchased approximately $75.7 million of Non-Agency RMBS backed by re-performing and non-performing loans bringing our total investment in Non-Agency RMBS to $175.9 million at September 30, 2016.
  • Declared third quarter dividend of $0.24 per common share that was paid on October 28, 2016. 

Subsequent Developments:

On October 26, 2016, the Company repaid $55.9 million of outstanding notes from its November 2013 collateralized recourse financing, which was collateralized by multi-family CMBS issued from three separate Freddie Mac-sponsored multi-family K-Series securitizations.  In connection with the repayment of the notes, approximately $181.9 million of multi-family CMBS collateral value was transferred back to the Company.

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, NYMT’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The Company’s investment portfolio generated solid returns and a stable book value during the quarter, as evidenced by a total economic return of 3.1% and book value of $6.34 per share.  Overall, portfolio performance benefited primarily from our multi-family and residential credit assets, including sales of distressed residential mortgage loans producing $6.7 million of net realized gains for the quarter.

We continued to transition our portfolio during the quarter to one increasingly focused on multi-family and residential credit assets, purchasing $75.7 million of Non-Agency RMBS backed by distressed residential loans and originating $32.4 million in multi-family preferred equity investments, while further reducing our capital allocation to Agency RMBS by 9% during the quarter. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we also repaid $55.9 million of outstanding notes issued by one of our multi-family CMBS collateral recourse financings. As a result of the repayment of this financing, we were able to unlock approximately $181.9 million of multi-family CMBS that served as collateral. We expect to securitize these assets again in the near future on terms that will be more favorable than the terms of the prior financing, which was originated in November 2013.

On a macro-level, interest rates continued their volatile but range-bound movements, with the 10-year U.S. Treasury note yield hitting a historic low in July at 1.36%, only to go back up to 1.60% by quarter end. The markets in which we compete for investments continue to be challenging, as asset pricing remains high due in large part to greater competition for assets. Because of this, we continue to be diligent in our search for investments consistent with our goal to deliver attractive risk adjusted spreads.”

Earnings Summary

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, we reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $20.0 million, an increase of $8.8 million from the second quarter of 2016. 

We generated net interest income of $15.5 million and portfolio net interest margin of 282 basis points, a decrease of $1.1 million and 39 basis points, respectively, from the second quarter of 2016.  The decrease was primarily driven by:

  • A decrease in net interest income of $1.4 million from our Agency IO portfolio due to an increase in prepayment rates and increase in financing costs.

  • A decrease in net interest income of approximately $0.3 million in our distressed residential portfolio due to an increase   in interest expense of $0.6 million resulting from an increase in average liabilities during the period.  This was partially offset by an increase in interest income of $0.3 million due to investments made in Non-Agency RMBS backed by re-performing and non-performing loans during the second quarter.
  • An increase in net interest income of $0.6 million from our multi-family portfolio due to an increase in average interest earning multi-family assets during the third quarter.  The increase in average interest earning multi-family assets can be attributed to new multi-family preferred equity investments made during the third quarter. In addition, yield on the interest earning assets in our multi-family portfolio increased during the period and average cost of funds decreased during the quarter.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, we recognized other income of $16.6 million, primarily from the following:

  • Unrealized gains amounting to $0.7 million recognized on our multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts.

  • Realized gains of $2.3 million and unrealized gains of $1.6 million on our investment securities and related hedges, primarily related to our Agency IO portfolio.
  • Net realized gains of $6.4 million recognized on our distressed residential mortgage loans primarily resulting from the sale of pools of distressed residential mortgage loans.
  • Other income of $5.6 million, which primarily included income from our investments in unconsolidated entities during the period.

The following table details the general, administrative and other expenses incurred during the second and third quarters of 2016:

    Three Months Ended
General, Administrative and Other Expenses   September 30,

Salaries, benefits and directors’ compensation   $ 2,705   $ 2,763

Expenses on distressed residential mortgage loans   2,398   2,740  
Other   1,125   745  
Total   $ 8,705   $ 9,936  

Total general, administrative and other expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were approximately $8.7 million, down from $9.9 million for the second quarter of 2016. The $1.5 million decrease in the Company’s management and incentive fees is primarily due to a change in methodology of calculation of management fees on our distressed residential mortgage loan portfolio from 1.5% of assets under management to 1.5% of invested capital beginning in the third quarter of 2016 and the internalization of RiverBanc into the Company in May 2016.
