Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, “We could not be more pleased with our current execution and forecasted return on issuing publicly traded five-year Notes to the debt capital markets. Due to the excess demand for these Notes, we increased our capital raise from $50 million to $71.875 million. We plan on using the proceeds of this Offering to pay down existing debt and to continue to grow our alternative loan program, which is funded by joint ventures that leverage securitization structures. Given our consolidated return on average assets (ROAA) of 2.8% and return on tangible common equity (ROTCE) of 20.6% for the first quarter of 2024, capital raised on this basis is accretive to our earnings and return profile and will enable us to continue to grow. We are looking forward to reporting our second quarter 2024 financial results as we are executing on our plan and, we believe, have planted the seeds for a strong quarter.”
