Management Overview

Steven Mumma, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “During a year in which the Company nearly doubled its equity market capitalization and investment portfolio, the steady and disciplined execution of the Company’s credit-focused investment strategy by its team of professionals has produced impressive results. The Company finished the year on a strong note, generating $0.20 per share of GAAP earnings and $0.21 per share of comprehensive income for the fourth quarter of 2019.   For the full year, the Company earned $0.65 per share in GAAP earnings, while posting comprehensive income of $0.87 per share, equivalent to 109% of common share dividends declared during the year.  The Company’s financial performance generated economic returns of 3.6% and 16.5% for the fourth quarter and full year 2019, respectively. Over the last three years, the Company has delivered an average annual economic return of 12%.

The Company continued to opportunistically access the capital markets through equity issuances during the fourth quarter and full year 2019, raising approximately $339 million and $957 million, respectively.  In fact, during 2019 alone, the Company’s capital markets’ activity contributed approximately $29 million of accretion to book value. Subsequent to the year end, the Company completed two successful raises adding another $512 million in common stock to bring our total equity market capitalization to approximately $2.9 billion.”

Jason Serrano, President, added: “NYMT’s core operating model centers around efficiency and flexibility. The Company’s growth within the Multi-Family and Single-Family strategies was achieved through adherence to these principles. The Company adopts a total return approach and targets investments that will add additional value to our existing portfolio of diverse income-producing assets. By broadening our sources of income through recurring gains and new opportunities that the market may offer, the Company will continue to drive earnings while reducing expense levels on a relative basis. Therefore, the Company will continue to focus on new, niche subsectors to drive total returns and mitigate against the potential volatility associated with high leverage.
               
To provide a deeper understanding of our efforts to deliver exceptional value to our shareholders, we are pleased to announce the release of a new supplemental investor presentation intended to complement the Company’s earnings calls."

In connection with the release of the Company’s financial results, the Company will post a supplemental financial presentation on its website at www.nymtrust.com under "Events and Presentations." Management intends to utilize this supplemental presentation as a discussion guide for the Company’s fourth quarter conference call on Tuesday, February 25, 2020.

Additional Information

We determined that the Consolidated K-Series were variable interest entities and that we are the primary beneficiary of the Consolidated K-Series.

Also, in the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company invested in first loss subordinated securities and certain IOs and senior securities issued by a Freddie Mac-sponsored residential mortgage loan securitization, which we refer to as Consolidated SLST. We determined that Consolidated SLST is a variable interest entity and that we are the primary beneficiary of Consolidated SLST. In accordance with GAAP, the Company has consolidated the underlying seasoned re-performing and non-performing residential mortgage loans of Consolidated SLST including its liabilities, income and expenses in our consolidated financial statements. We have elected the fair value option on the assets and liabilities held within the Consolidated K-Series and Consolidated SLST, which requires that changes in valuations in the assets and liabilities of the Consolidated K-Series and Consolidated SLST be reflected in our consolidated statements of operations.
