READY CAPITAL CORPORATION REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2022 RESULTS

May 05, 2022 (PRNewswire via COMTEX) -- PR Newswire

NEW YORK, May 5, 2022

- GAAP EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE OF $0.70 - - DISTRIBUTABLE EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE OF $0.52 - - DISTRIBUTABLE RETURN ON AVERAGE STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY OF 13.6% -

NEW YORK, May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ready Capital Corporation ("Ready Capital" or the "Company") /zigman2/quotes/204169771/composite RC +0.15% , a multi-strategy real estate finance company that originates, acquires, finances, and services small-to-medium balance commercial loans, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

"Ready Capital's first quarter results are reflective of our sustained expansion of our core lending channels, the addition of complimentary lending products and the ongoing growth of our business," commented Thomas Capasse, Ready Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The quarter was highlighted by record SBC originations in addition to the closing of the merger with Mosaic Real Estate Credit. Both mark significant milestones in achieving the scale necessary to deliver consistent solutions to our customers."

First Quarter Highlights

  • Completed a $542 million merger with Mosaic Real Estate Credit to expand the Company's ability to provide full life-cycle lending to small balance commercial ("SBC") properties

  • Total investments of $3.1 billion, including $2.2 billion of SBC originations and acquisitions, $769.1 million of residential mortgage loans, and $101.0 million of U.S. Small Business Administration 7(a) loans

  • Closed a $1.1 billion commercial mortgage collateralized loan obligation, the Company's largest CRE CLO to date

  • Raised $107.1 million in gross proceeds in an underwritten public offering of 7,000,000 shares of common stock

  • Declared and paid dividend of $0.42 per share in cash with distributable earnings coverage of the common dividend at 1.3x

  • Net book value of $15.22 per share of common stock as of March 31, 2022

Subsequent Events

  • Closed an underwritten public offering of $120.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.125% senior unsecured notes due 2025

  • Completed the securitization of $276.8 million of fixed-rate SBC loans and issued $204.5 million of senior bonds at a weighted average pass-through rate of 4.2%

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release includes distributable earnings, formerly referred to as core earnings, which is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure. The Company defines distributable earnings as net income adjusted for unrealized gains and losses related to certain mortgage backed securities ("MBS") not retained by us as part of our loan origination business, realized gains and losses on sales of certain MBS, unrealized gains and losses related to residential mortgage servicing rights ("MSR"), unrealized current non-cash provision for credit losses on accrual loans and one-time non-recurring gains or losses, such as gains or losses on discontinued operations, bargain purchase gains, merger related expenses, or other one-time items.

The Company believes that this non-U.S. GAAP financial information, in addition to the related U.S. GAAP measures, provides investors greater transparency into the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, including the determination of dividends. However, because Distributable Earnings is an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and involves differences from net income computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, it should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, the Company's net income computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of Distributable Earnings may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.

In calculating Distributable Earnings, Net Income (in accordance with U.S. GAAP) is adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses on MBS acquired by the Company in the secondary market but is not adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses on MBS retained by Ready Capital as part of its loan origination businesses, where the Company transfers originated loans into an MBS securitization and the Company retains an interest in the securitization. In calculating Distributable Earnings, the Company does not adjust Net Income (in accordance with U.S. GAAP) to take into account unrealized gains and losses on MBS retained by us as part of the loan origination businesses because the unrealized gains and losses that are generated in the loan origination and securitization process are considered to be a fundamental part of this business and an indicator of the ongoing performance and credit quality of the Company's historical loan originations. In calculating Distributable Earnings, Net Income (in accordance with U.S. GAAP) is adjusted to exclude realized gains and losses on certain MBS securities considered to be non-distributable. Certain MBS positions are considered to be non-distributable due to a variety of reasons which may include collateral type, duration, and size.

In addition, in calculating Distributable Earnings, Net Income (in accordance with U.S. GAAP) is adjusted to exclude unrealized gains or losses on residential MSRs, held at fair value. The Company treats its commercial MSRs and residential MSRs as two separate classes based on the nature of the underlying mortgages and the treatment of these assets as two separate pools for risk management purposes. Servicing rights relating to the Company's small business commercial business are accounted for under ASC 860, Transfer and Servicing , while the Company's residential MSRs are accounted for under the fair value option under ASC 825, Financial Instruments . In calculating Distributable Earnings, the Company does not exclude realized gains or losses on either commercial MSRs or residential MSRs, held at fair value, as servicing income is a fundamental part of Ready Capital's business and is an indicator of the ongoing performance.

To qualify as a REIT, the Company must distribute to its stockholders each calendar year at least 90% of its REIT taxable income (including certain items of non-cash income), determined without regard to the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gain. There are certain items, including net income generated from the creation of MSRs, that are included in distributable earnings but are not included in the calculation of the current year's taxable income. These differences may result in certain items that are recognized in the current period's calculation of distributable earnings not being included in taxable income, and thus not subject to the REIT dividend distribution requirement until future years.

The table below reconciles Net Income computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP to Distributable Earnings.
