Timbercreek Financial Announces 2022 Second Quarter Results

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timbercreek Financial (TSX: TF) (the “Company”) announced today its financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022 (“Q2 2022”).

Q2 2022 Highlights1

  • Q2 2022 results reflect healthy funding volumes and lower repayments. The Company executed on net new mortgage fundings of $150.8 million, and advances on existing mortgages of $13.9 million, offset by net mortgage repayments of $98.2 million, syndications of $64.5 million and the exchange of two FVTPL loans of $30.0 million for a real estate investment. At the end of the period, net mortgage investments were $1,235.0 million (versus $1,159.6 at year-end 2021). The quarterly transaction volume resulted in a Q2 2022 turnover ratio of 8.1%.

  • Declared $14.5 million in dividends to shareholders, or $0.17 per share, and delivered distributable income and adjusted distributable income of $15.9 million, or $0.19 per share, representing a payout ratio of 91.3% on both distributable income and adjusted distributable income which is well within Management's target payout range.

  • Net income and comprehensive income of $14.7 million which includes $0.5 million of fair value losses on mortgages and investment properties measured at fair value through profit and loss. After adjusting for these losses, adjusted net income and comprehensive income was $15.2 million for the period, up from 13.6 million in the same period last year.

  • Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.17, and basic and diluted adjusted earnings per share were $0.18, reflecting a payout ratio of 91.3% (Q2 2021 – 90.8%) on an adjusted distributable income basis.
    69.9% weighted average loan-to-value
    • 92.5% first mortgages in mortgage investment portfolio
    • 90.8% of mortgage investment portfolio is invested in cash-flowing properties
    • 7.2% quarterly weighted average interest rate on net mortgage investments
      Maintained conservative portfolio risk position focused on income-producing commercial real estate

  • In April, the Company completed the disposition of its interest in the Saskatchewan Portfolio as well as successfully aligned its interest in two FVTPL loans by exchanging them for an interest in the underlying assets of one loan, a portfolio of lands in Ontario, for which it intends to sell.

  • In July, subsequent to quarter end, the Company partially exercised the accordion feature on its credit facility, increasing the facility size to $600.0 million from $575.0 million.

"Against a backdrop of financial market volatility and economic uncertainty, it was another solid quarter for the company, highlighted by the continued resilience and performance of our underlying mortgage portfolio,” said Blair Tamblyn, CEO of Timbercreek Financial. “As we expected, we are seeing the benefit of recent interest rate hikes on our primarily floating rate portfolio, translating into higher interest income. Our long history in this space has shown us that periods of rapid rate increases, while they may impact short-term transaction volume, generally create opportunity for flexible alternative lenders, and we have the capital and team to take advantage of these conditions.”

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company prepares and releases financial statements in accordance with IFRS. As a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, the Company discloses certain financial measures not recognized under IFRS and that do not have standard meanings prescribed by IFRS (collectively the “non-IFRS measures”). These non-IFRS measures are further described in Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") available on SEDAR. Certain non-IFRS measures relating to net mortgages, adjusted net income and comprehensive income and adjusted distributable income have been shown below. The Company has presented such non-IFRS measures because the Manager believes they are relevant measures of the Company’s ability to earn and distribute cash dividends to shareholders and to evaluate its performance. The following non-IFRS financial measures should not be construed as alternatives to total net income and comprehensive income or cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of the Company’s performance.

By their nature, forward looking statements reflect the Company's current views, beliefs, assumptions and intentions and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, known and unknown, including, without limitation, those risks disclosed in the Company's public filings.
