Book Value per Common Share

At June 30, 2020, our book value was $2.85 per share of common stock, which was an increase of $0.16 from $2.69 at March 31, 2020. The common stock dividend of $0.05 per share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 was declared in the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. That dividend of $0.05 per share, plus the $0.05 common stock dividend for the second quarter, plus the $0.16 increase in book value, resulted in a return on book value per common share of 9.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The return on book value per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was a negative (35.8)%.

Dividend

On June 16, 2020, we declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.05 per share for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. Based upon the closing price of $1.70 on June 30, 2020, the annualized dividend yield on our common stock at June 30, 2020 was 11.8%.

Subsequent Events

On July 23, 2020, we renewed our warehouse line of credit relating to the residential mortgage loans held-for-securitization for an amount of $300 million and a term of one year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Related to Operating Results

In addition to our operating results presented in accordance with GAAP, the following tables include the following non-GAAP financial measures: core earnings (including per common share), total interest income, and average asset yield, including TBA dollar roll income, paydown expense on Agency MBS, and effective total interest expense and effective cost of funds. The first table below reconciles our “Net income to common stockholders” for the three months ended June 30, 2020 to core earnings for the same period. Core earnings represents “Net income to common stockholders” (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure), adjusted for the items shown in the table below. The second table below reconciles our total interest and other income for the three months ended June 30, 2020 (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure) to our total interest income and average asset yield, including TBA dollar roll income, and shows the annualized amounts as a percentage of our average earning assets, and also reconciles our total interest expense (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure) to our effective total interest expense and effective cost of funds and shows the annualized amounts as a percentage of our average borrowings.

The Company’s management believes that:

  • these non-GAAP financial measures are useful because they provide investors with greater transparency to the information that we use in our financial and operational decision-making process;
  • the inclusion of paydown expense on Agency MBS is more indicative of the current earnings potential of our investment portfolio, as it reflects the actual principal paydowns which occurred during the period. Paydown expense on Agency MBS is not dependent on future assumptions on prepayments, or the cumulative effect from prior periods of any current changes to those assumptions, as is the case with the GAAP measure, “Premium amortization on Agency MBS”;
  • the adjustment for depreciation expense on residential rental properties, as this is a non-cash item and is added back by other companies to derive funds from operations; and
  • the presentation of these measures, when analyzed in conjunction with our GAAP operating results, allows investors to more effectively evaluate our performance to that of our peers, particularly those that have discontinued hedge accounting and those that have used similar portfolio and derivative strategies.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for our operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2020. An analysis of any non-GAAP financial measure should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.

_______________________

(1)

At March 31, 2020, we designated our Non-Agency MBS as trading securities. The unrealized loss at that time, instead of being recorded in AOCI, as had been previously done, is now recognized through earnings.

(2)

Net settlement on interest rate swaps after de-designation includes all subsequent net payments made on interest rate swaps which were de-designated as hedges in August 2014 and also on any new interest rate swaps entered into after that date. These amounts are recorded in “Unrealized loss on interest rate swaps, net.”

(3)

Dollar roll income on TBA Agency MBS is the income resulting from the price discount typically obtained by extending the settlement of TBA Agency MBS to a later date. This is a component of the “(Loss) on derivatives, net” that is included in our consolidated statements of operations.

(4)

Paydown expense on Agency MBS represents the proportional expense of Agency MBS purchase premiums relative to the Agency MBS principal payments and prepayments which occurred during the quarter.

(5)

Depreciation expense is added back in the core earnings calculation, as it is a non-cash item, and it is similarly added back in other companies’ calculation of core earnings or funds from operations.

(6)

The trustee reports these as losses in the securitization trusts, but these payments are due upon liquidation or maturity.
