  • 1Q21 loan production volume up 30% Q/Q, totaled $233.04 million in unpaid principal balance (UPB), driven by strong demand for investor loans

  • 1Q21 portfolio net interest margin of 4.10%

  • Book value per common share of $11.12 as of March 31, 2021

  • Loans held for investment (HFI) UPB of $1.99 billion as of March 31, 2021

  • Nonaccrual loans as a percentage of HFI loans was 16.8% as of March 31, 2021

  • 1Q21 nonperforming loan (NPL) resolutions totaled $49 million in UPB, realizing 102.7% of UPB resolved
    ‒ Continued Velocity’s track record of realizing net gains over and above contractual principal and interest on NPLs

Velocity Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VEL) ("Velocity" or the "Company") reported net income of $3.40 million and core income of $6.72 million for 1Q21, compared to $2.58 million and $5.80 million, respectively, in 1Q20. Earnings and core earnings per diluted share were $0.10 and $0.20, respectively, in 1Q21, compared to $0.13 and $0.29, respectively, in 1Q20. Book value per common share was $11.12 as of March 31, 2021, compared to $12.47 as of March 31, 2020.

"As we mark the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, I am increasingly optimistic about the durability of the emerging economic recovery we are seeing as businesses reopen and growth opportunities for Velocity increase," said Chris Farrar, President and CEO. "First quarter production volumes grew 30 percent quarter-over-quarter, and we continue to build momentum with the introduction of new products and re-launching existing products suspended during the pandemic. These initiatives provide our broker network with an expanded menu of options to satisfy their client’s financing needs, which drives higher production volume and accelerated growth of our loan portfolio. Velocity’s business model and integrated operational platform have shown continued resiliency and the ability to emerge from market dislocations stronger and more profitable than before. I am confident that this will be the case for Velocity going forward."

Discussion of results:

  • Net income for 1Q21 totaled $3.40 million, an increase from $2.58 million in 1Q20, driven by improved portfolio performance and significantly lower loan loss provisioning in the current quarter
    ‒ Pretax gain on loan sales in 1Q21 totaled $2.8 million (105% of UPB sold)

  • Core income for 1Q21 totaled $6.72 million, which reflects the exclusion of $3.33 million as a result of refinancing the Company’s corporate debt during the quarter

  • The pretax return on equity was 8.27% in 1Q21, an increase from 6.62% for 1Q20, driven by lower provisioning charges and operating expenses

  • Net interest margin - portfolio decreased 8 bps from 4.18% in 1Q20, to 4.10% in 1Q21, driven by growth in nonperforming loans and higher portfolio-related debt costs

Discussion of results:

  • Strong asset resolution trends continued in 1Q21, with $1.3 million of gains realized on $49.2 million of UPB, compared to $0.66 million and $17.5 million, respectively, in 1Q20.
    ‒ Total resolution gains as a % of UPB resolved were 102.7% in 1Q21, compared to 103.8% in 1Q20

  • Resolution activity in 1Q21 has been split between long-term loans and short-term/forbearance loans
    ‒ Short-term loans do not require prepayment fees and result in a lower gain when paid in full, as compared to long-term loans
    ‒ Forbearance loans are loans granted a COVID-19 forbearance that subsequently became nonperforming

  • Transaction volumes reflect solid operational execution by Velocity’s in-house Special Servicing team

Net interest spread — portfolio related is the difference between the rate earned on our loan portfolio and the interest rates paid on our portfolio-related debt.

(3)

Net interest spread — total company is the difference between the rate earned on our loan portfolio and the interest rates paid on our total debt.

(4)

The debt issuance cost amortization was higher for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as a result of a lower average outstanding borrowing balance from a new financing facility.

(5)

Excluding the one-time debt issuance cost write-off of $2.9 million and prepayment penalties of $1.6 million associated with the $78.0 million payoff of our corporate debt in February 2021, the corporate debt average rate would have been 10.49%; net interest spread — total company would have been 3.06%; and net interest margin — total company would have been 3.52% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

(6)

Excluding the one-time debt issuance costs write-off of $3.5 million and prepayment penalties of $0.3 million associated with the $75.0 million paydown of our corporate debt in January 2020, the corporate debt average rate would have been 10.88%; net interest spread — total company would have been 3.44%; and net interest margin — total company would have been 3.69% for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
