ATLANTA, November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Angel Oak Mortgage, Inc. (NYSE: AOMR) (the "Company," "we," and "our"), a leading real estate finance company focused on acquiring and investing in first lien non-QM loans and other mortgage-related assets in the U.S. mortgage market, today reported financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter and Year-to-Date Highlights

  • QTD GAAP net income of $6.3 million, EPS of $0.25.

  • YTD GAAP net income of $18.1 million, EPS of $0.93.

  • GAAP book value of $19.72 per share as of September 30, 2021, up from $19.48 per share as of June 30, 2021.

  • GAAP return on equity of 5.1% for the third quarter and 6.7% for the nine months of 2021, in each case on an annualized basis.

  • Declared dividend of $0.36 per share for the third quarter 2021, payable on November 30, 2021.

  • Distributable Earnings of $4.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, and $11.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Robert Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "We were very active on the investment front this quarter, taking advantage of strong volumes from our origination partners to deploy capital. We purchased $534.0 million of loans through our proprietary origination channels, bringing our total loan portfolio to over $1.0 billion. Additionally, we completed our first non-QM securitization since our IPO, executing it at very strong pricing and with high quality underlying collateral. On the financing side, we expanded our credit lines by $450.0 million to a total of $1.25 billion, providing us with enhanced capacity to continue funding loan investments and future securitizations. Lastly, we declared a dividend that we believe represents a highly attractive risk-adjusted yield in today’s world. As we look ahead to the balance of 2021 and beyond, we remain focused on continuing to grow our asset base and providing our shareholders with the benefits of unparalleled access to high quality loan investments within the non-QM loan market."

Portfolio and Investment Activity

  • Purchased $543.0 million of residential mortgage loans in the third quarter 2021.

  • As of November 8, 2021, purchased an additional $338.0 million residential mortgage loans, with an additional strong pipeline of loans to close out the year.

  • Completed $316.6 million residential non-QM securitization at a 1.12% weighted average cost of funding.

  • Portfolio totaled $1.7 billion of residential mortgage loans and other target assets as of September 30, 2021.

Capital Markets Activity

In the third quarter, the Company added two financing lines totaling $450.0 million in borrowing capacity, one of which is a committed borrowing facility. As of September 30, 2021, the Company was party to six financing lines which permit borrowings in an aggregate amount of up to $1.25 billion.

We intend to continue financing with a variety of lenders to ensure that during the time frame within which we are aggregating whole loans in anticipation of a securitization transaction, any effects of a liquidity or other event will be minimized to the Company.

Balance Sheet

  • $49.2 million of cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021.

  • Recourse debt to equity ratio of 2.1x as of September 30, 2021.

  • Held residential mortgage loans with a fair value of $1.0 billion as of September 30, 2021.

  • Total liquidity of $749.0 million, including $699.0 million of remaining capacity on the Company’s financing lines as of September 30, 2021.

Dividend

On November 8, 2021, the Company declared a common stock dividend of $0.36 per share for the third quarter of 2021. The dividend is payable on November 30, 2021 to common stockholders of record as of November 22, 2021.

Non-GAAP metrics

Distributable Earnings is a non‑GAAP measure and is defined as net income (loss) allocable to common stockholders as calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding (1) unrealized gains and losses on our aggregate portfolio, and realized gains (losses) on derivatives, (2) impairment losses, (3) extinguishment of debt, (4) non-cash equity compensation expense, (5) the incentive fee earned by our Manager, (6) realized gains or losses on swap terminations and (7) certain other nonrecurring gains or losses. We believe that the presentation of Distributable Earnings provides investors with a useful measure to facilitate comparisons of financial performance between our REIT peers but has important limitations. We believe Distributable Earnings as described above helps evaluate our financial performance without the impact of certain transactions but is of limited usefulness as an analytical tool. Therefore, Distributable Earnings should not be viewed in isolation and is not a substitute for net income computed in accordance with GAAP. Our methodology for calculating Distributable Earnings may differ from the methodologies employed by other REITs to calculate the same or similar supplemental performance measures, and as a result, our Distributable Earnings may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other REITs.
