NEW YORK, August 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BrightSpire Capital, Inc. (NYSE: BRSP) ("BrightSpire Capital" or the "Company") today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and certain updates. The Company reported second quarter 2021 GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(19.7) million, or $(0.15) per share, and Distributable Loss of $(27.1) million, or $(0.20) per share. Excluding realized losses on sales and fair value adjustments, Adjusted Distributable Earnings were $27.0 million, or $0.20 per share. The Company reported GAAP net book value of $11.75 per share and undepreciated book value of $12.66 per share as of June 30, 2021.

Michael J. Mazzei, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "The first half of 2021 has been highlighted by reinstating and increasing our quarterly dividend, internalizing the management of the Company and rebranding, placing a portfolio of development and non-accrual co-investments under contract, and executing on a new CRE CLO. We continue to simplify the business and remain focused on increasing portfolio exposure to senior mortgages."

Mr. Mazzei continued, "The strength of our loan origination business and team resulted in the successful execution of our second managed $800 million CRE CLO and first as an internally managed REIT. The transaction improves our return on equity and the liquidity generated from the transaction will be invested in new senior loan originations. Since late 2020, we have closed or committed over $1.5 billion in senior loans."

Mr. Mazzei continued, "Finally, I am pleased to announce that we have increased our quarterly dividend from $0.14 to $0.16 per share for the third quarter of 2021."

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and contingencies, many of which are beyond our control, and may cause actual results to differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Among others, the following uncertainties and other factors could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: operating costs and business disruption may be greater than expected; uncertainties regarding the ongoing impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its adverse impact on the real estate market, the economy and the Company’s investments (including, but not limited to, the Los Angeles mixed-use development loan, other hospitality loans, and Dublin development financings), financial condition and business operation; the Company's operating results may differ materially from the information presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, as well as in the Company’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission; the fair value of the Company's investments may be subject to uncertainties; the Company's use of leverage could hinder its ability to make distributions and may significantly impact its liquidity position; the ability to simplify the portfolio, realize substantial efficiencies as well as anticipated strategic and financial benefits, including, but not limited to expected cost savings through the internalization or expected returns on equity and/or yields on investments; the timing of and ability to generate additional liquidity and deploy available liquidity, including in senior mortgage loans; whether the Company will achieve its anticipated Distributable Earnings per share (as adjusted), or maintain or produce higher Distributable Earnings per share (as adjusted) in the near term or ever; the Company’s ability to maintain or grow the dividend at all in the future; defaults by borrowers in paying debt service on outstanding indebtedness, borrowers’ abilities to manage and stabilize properties; deterioration in the performance of the properties securing our investments (including depletion of interest and other reserves or payment-in-kind concessions in lieu of current interest payment obligations) that may cause deterioration in the performance of our investments and, potentially, principal losses to us; adverse impacts on the Company's corporate revolver, including covenant compliance and borrowing base capacity; adverse impacts on the Company's liquidity, including margin calls on master repurchase facilities; lease payment defaults or deferrals, demands for protective advances and capital expenditures; the ability of the Company to refinance certain mortgage debt on similar terms to those currently existing or at all; the ability to execute CRE CLO’s on a go forward basis, including at a reduced cost of capital; the conditions to the completion of the co-invest portfolio sale may not be satisfied, or the approvals required for the transaction may not be obtained on the terms expected, on the anticipated schedule, or at all; the timing or ability to payoff off the 5-investment preferred financing following the co-invest portfolio sale and net effect book value for such events (including the extent of purchase price adjustments); and the impact of legislative, regulatory and competitive changes, and the actions of government authorities and in particular those affecting the commercial real estate finance and mortgage industry or our business. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information about these and other factors can be found in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, as well as in BrightSpire Capital’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
