NEW YORK, Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq: NYMT) (“NYMT,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) today reported results for the second quarter of 2020.

Summary of Second Quarter 2020:
(dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data)

Net income attributable to Company's common stockholders $ 107,517  
Net income attributable to Company's common stockholders per share (basic) $ 0.28  
Net interest income $ 28,526  
Portfolio net interest margin 2.43 %
Comprehensive income attributable to Company's common stockholders $ 190,121  
Comprehensive income attributable to Company's common stockholders per share (basic) $ 0.50  
Book value per common share at the end of the period $ 4.35  
Economic return on book value for the quarter (1) 13.1 %
Dividends per common share $ 0.05  

            

(1)  Economic return on book value is based on the periodic change in GAAP book value per common share plus dividends declared per common share, if any, during the period.

Key Developments:

  • Reinstated the payment of quarterly dividends on both common and preferred stock and declared preferred stock dividends in arrears for the first quarter of 2020.

  • Completed a non-mark-to-market re-securitization backed by non-Agency RMBS generating net proceeds of approximately $109.3 million.

  • Obtained additional financing for residential loans pledged under a repurchase agreement in the amount of $248.8 million.

  • Sold residential loans for approximately $43.8 million in proceeds, non-Agency RMBS for approximately $37.8 million in proceeds and CMBS for approximately $24.0 million in proceeds.

  • Reduced outstanding repurchase agreements to finance investment securities by $625.8 million from March 31, 2020.

Subsequent Developments:

On July 14, 2020, we completed a securitization of residential loans, resulting in approximately $242.9 million in net proceeds to the Company after deducting estimated expenses associated with the transaction. We utilized the net proceeds to repay approximately $230.6 million on an outstanding repurchase agreement related to residential loans.            

Management Overview

Steven Mumma, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The Company rebounded strongly in the second quarter after the most challenging quarter in its history, generating $0.28 in GAAP earnings and $0.50 in comprehensive earnings and increasing its book value to $4.35 at June 30, 2020, a 12% increase from March 31, 2020.  The Company has focused significant efforts on stabilizing and improving its ability to fund its investment strategy, including reducing mark-to-market securities repo financing to one counterparty totaling $88 million and completing a non-mark-to-market re-securitization of non-Agency securities totaling $109 million during the second quarter, and closing on a $243 million residential loan securitization in July.  Our low leverage leading into the pandemic allowed us to retain over $1 billion of non-Agency credit assets that experienced significant price appreciation in the second quarter.  As we look to the future, we expect to rely less on shorter-term financings that are subject to mark-to-market fluctuations, which we believe will help us to remain opportunistic on the investment side.”

Jason Serrano, NYMT’s President, commented: “The Company delivered a solid performance in the second quarter largely due to the continued discipline of NYMT’s conservative investment culture.  Although we sold assets and de-levered our portfolio in response to the COVID-19 related market disruption, we avoided some of the larger-scale, forced selling that occurred during the first quarter, allowing the Company to retain assets, particularly non-Agency RMBS, that we believe offer attractive price recovery potential. This approach allowed investments on our balance sheet to benefit in the second quarter from a resilient U.S. housing market - a market with tight supply and record low lending rates.  In addition, our operating strategy enabled us to avoid the need to access expensive recapitalization initiatives that were likely to include some level of shareholder dilution.  Instead, we exercised discipline and patiently locked in tighter term financing spreads by accessing the securitization markets and monetized gains from the price recovery with selective asset sales later in the second quarter.  I am proud of our exceptional team, which worked incredibly hard during these unprecedented times.  Together, we have been able to position the Company with a sizeable current cash balance and advantageous financing that we anticipate will provide a path for stable growth under a now-reduced competitive landscape.”
