Management Overview    

Steven Mumma, NYMT's Chief Executive Officer and President, commented: "Despite the difficult and volatile investment environment for fixed-income investors in 2013, the Company's portfolio and investment strategy produced strong results in the fourth quarter and full year 2013, with net income per share higher by 79% and 3%, respectively, over the corresponding prior periods. The Company benefitted significantly in 2013 from its decision to allocate greater capital to credit sensitive assets that rely on asset selection rather than leverage to generate the Company's targeted returns, with our multi-family strategy leading the way. This approach to capital allocation and asset selection has yielded impressive results, with fourth quarter net interest margin up by 51 and 77 basis points, respectively, over the prior quarter and the fourth quarter of 2012, and has helped us to maintain a stable book value per share throughout 2013, something that was difficult for many mortgage REITs last year. As of the end of 2013, 69% of our capital was allocated to investments in CMBS, multi-family investments and distressed residential mortgage loans, up from 44% last year."

"The Company grew its capital by $159 million in 2013 through accretive equity offerings and has maintained that growth momentum in early 2014, as evidenced by the $75.8 million of common equity we raised in January 2014. Similar to our 2013 offerings, the capital raised in our January 2014 offering was accretive to book value. We intend to continue our focus in 2014 on growing the credit-sensitive portion of our portfolio, while maintaining an opportunistic approach to our Agency IO and Agency RMBS portfolios, and will continue to pursue attractive structured financing opportunities capable of enhancing the yields on these credit-sensitive assets while minimizing the Company's liquidity risk. We believe the portfolio is well-positioned as we move forward in 2014 to take advantage of new interest earning and capital gain opportunities."

The main components of the change in net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the same periods for the prior year are set forth in the following table (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data):

Diluted income per common share  $ 0.34  $ 0.19  $ 0.15  $ 1.11  $ 1.08  $ 0.03

In general, the significant increases in a number of the line items are largely a function of the growth in the Company's stockholders' equity from $322.0 million as of December 31, 2012 to $480.7 million as of December 31, 2013 and the corresponding growth in the size of the Company's portfolio of interest earning assets.

Net Interest Income / Interest Earning Assets

The significant increase in net interest income is directly attributable to the growth in our interest earning assets as compared to the previous year. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company increasingly allocated capital to credit sensitive, higher yielding investments and allocated less capital to its Agency RMBS portfolio, which is lower-yielding. This selective allocation of capital favorably impacted net interest margin for the third and fourth quarters of 2013. The fourth quarter was also favorably impacted by a significant slowdown in prepayment rates in our Agency RMBS and Agency IO portfolios (See table below). The combination of investment allocation to credit sensitive assets and decreased prepayment rates resulted in a 77 basis point increase in net interest spread when comparing the fourth quarter of 2013 to the fourth quarter of 2012 and an increase of 51 basis points as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

The following table sets forth the net interest spread for our portfolio of interest earning assets by quarter for the five most recently completed quarters, excluding the costs of our subordinated debentures:

(1) Average Interest Earning Assets for the quarter excludes all Consolidated K-Series assets other than those securities issued by the securitizations comprising the Consolidated K-Series that are actually owned by us.
(2) Our Average Interest Earning Assets is calculated each quarter as the daily average balance of our Interest Earning Assets for the quarter, excluding unrealized gains and losses.
(3) Our Weighted Average Yield on Interest Earning Assets was calculated by dividing our annualized interest income from Interest Earning Assets for the quarter by our average Interest Earning Assets for the quarter.
(4) Our Cost of Funds was calculated by dividing our annualized interest expense from our Interest Earning Assets for the quarter by our average financing arrangements, portfolio investments, Residential CDOs and Securitized Debt for the quarter.
(5) Net Interest Spread is the difference between our Weighted Average Yield on Interest Earning Assets and our Cost of Funds.

Other Income

Total other income increased by $10.7 million and $20.0 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012, respectively. The changes in total other income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012 were primarily driven by:

  • an increase in net unrealized gains on multi-family loans and debt held in securitization trusts of $7.5 million and $24.8 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, from the corresponding periods in 2012, primarily due to improved pricing on our multi-family CMBS investments as well as an increase in multi-family CMBS investments as compared to the corresponding periods in 2012;
     
  • a decrease in unrealized loss on investment securities and related hedges of $3.8 million and $9.4 million and a decrease in realized gain on investment securities and related hedges of $3.0 and $17.0 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, as compared to the corresponding periods in 2012, which is primarily related to our Agency IO strategy. The increased interest rate volatility combined with illiquidity in the inverse IO market resulted in larger than expected losses in this strategy during the second quarter of 2013, with a partial reversal realized during the third and fourth quarters of this year; and
     
  • an increase in realized gains on distressed residential mortgage loans of $0.5 million and $1.5 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, as compared to the corresponding periods in 2012.

Total  $ 6,255  $ 2,932  $ 3,323  $ 19,917  $ 11,427  $ 8,490

The increase in general, administrative and other expenses was largely attributable to the increase in management fees and expenses related to our distressed residential mortgage loan investments. The increase in management fees was driven in large part by the increase in assets managed by our external managers. The increase in expenses related to distressed residential mortgage loans is due to the significant increase in our investment in this asset class as compared to the corresponding periods in 2012.
