John Erickson, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President, commented, "2013 was a challenging year for the mortgage market and we are pleased to see 2014 begin on a positive footing.  We believe that the actions we took during 2013, from repositioning our portfolio to shrinking our capital base through the repurchase of our common stock, helped drive our performance this quarter and positions us well for the remainder of 2014.   In addition, despite the challenges faced by all fixed-income investors since the onset of QE3, we are pleased that MTGE has produced total economic returns of over 23% since the second quarter of 2012."

NET BOOK VALUE

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's net book value per share was $21.78, or $0.31 per share higher than the net book value per share of $21.47 as of December 31, 2013.

INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's investment portfolio included $5.0 billion of agency securities, $0.7 billion of net long TBA securities, $1.0 billion of non-agency securities, and $41.3 million of investments in agency mortgage REIT equity securities.

The Company accounts for dollar roll positions as derivative instruments and recognizes dollar roll income/loss in other gains (losses), net on the Company's financial statements.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company's net long TBA mortgage portfolio had a fair value and cost basis of approximately $0.7 billion, with a net carrying value of $0.2 million reported in derivative assets/(liabilities) on the Company's balance sheet.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's agency MBS investment portfolio was comprised of $5.2 billion of fixed rate investments, inclusive of the long TBA position, and $0.5 billion of adjustable-rate securities.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's agency fixed rate MBS investments were comprised of $2.0 billion less than or equal to15 year securities, $0.2 billion 20 year securities, $2.3 billion 30 year securities, $0.1 billion 15 year net long TBA securities and $0.6 billion 30 year net long TBA securities.  As of March 31, 2014, less than or equal to 15 year fixed rate investments, inclusive of the net long TBA position, represented 38% of the Company's agency investment portfolio, a slight decrease from 39% as of December 31, 2013, and 30 year fixed rate investments, inclusive of the net long TBA position, represented 51% of the Company's agency investment portfolio, an increase from 48% as of December 31, 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's agency fixed rate mortgage assets, inclusive of the net TBA position, had a weighted average coupon of 3.46%, comprised of a weighted average coupon of 3.04% for less than or equal to 15 year securities, 3.29% for 20 year securities and 3.78% for 30 year securities.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's $1.0 billion non-agency portfolio was comprised of 45% Alt-A, 22% prime, 12% option ARM and 21% subprime securities.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company's non-agency portfolio had a weighted average coupon of 1.49%.

AGENCY CONSTANT PREPAYMENT RATES

The actual CPR for the Company's agency portfolio during the first quarter of 2014 was 5.7%, consistent with the fourth quarter of 2013.  The CPR published in April 2014 for the Company's agency portfolio held as of March 31, 2014 was 8.1%, and the weighted average projected CPR for the remaining life of the Company's agency securities held as of March 31, 2014 was 8.2%, compared to 7.3% as of December 31, 2013. 

The Company amortizes and accretes premiums and discounts associated with purchases of agency securities into interest income over the estimated life of such securities based on actual and projected CPRs using the effective yield method.  The amortization of premiums (net of any accretion of discounts) on the agency portfolio for the quarter was $(10.8) million, or $(0.21) per share.  The Company recognized approximately $(1.4) million, or $(0.03) per share, of "catch-up" premium amortization expense during the quarter, as projected CPR estimates rose for the Company's existing agency securities during the quarter. 

The weighted average cost basis of the Company's agency securities was 104.4% of par and the unamortized agency net premium was $214.7 million as of March 31, 2014.  As such, slower actual and projected prepayments can have a meaningful positive impact, while faster actual or projected prepayments can have a meaningful negative impact on the Company's agency asset yields.

NON-AGENCY DISCOUNT ACCRETION

The weighted average cost basis of the Company's non-agency portfolio was 62.0% of par as of March 31, 2014.  Discount accretion on the non-agency portfolio for the quarter was $10.6 million, or $0.21 per share.  The total net discount remaining was $578.7 million as of March 31, 2014, with $225.4 million designated as credit reserves.

ASSET YIELDS, COST OF FUNDS AND NET INTEREST RATE SPREAD

The Company's average asset yield on its investment portfolio for the first quarter was 3.08%, compared to 3.25% for the fourth quarter.  Excluding the impact of "catch-up" premium amortization recognized due to changes in projected CPR estimates, the annualized weighted average yield on the Company's investment portfolio was 3.17% for the first quarter, compared to 3.06% for the fourth quarter.  The Company's average asset yield as of March 31, 2014 was 3.20%, a 2 bps increase from 3.18% as of December 31, 2013.

The Company's average cost of funds during the first quarter (derived from the cost of repurchase agreements and interest rate swaps) decreased 7 bps to 0.92%, from 0.99% during the fourth quarter.  The decrease in the Company's average cost of funds was due to lower average swap costs as a result of lower effective swap balances.  The Company's average cost of funds of 0.97% as of March 31, 2014 increased 9 bps from 0.88% as of December 31, 2013, due to increased average effective swap net pay rates and notional amounts, as well as increased repurchase agreement interest rates. 

The Company's average net interest rate spread, inclusive of dollar rolls, for the first quarter was 2.19%, a decrease of 8 bps from 2.27% for the fourth quarter.  Excluding dollar rolls, the Company's average net interest rate spread for the first quarter was 2.16%, compared to 2.25% for the fourth quarter.  Excluding dollar rolls, the Company's average net interest rate spread was 2.23% as of March 31, 2014, compared to 2.30% as of December 31, 2013.

LEVERAGE AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

As of March 31, 2014, $5.2 billion of the Company's repurchase agreements were used to fund acquisitions of agency and non-agency securities, while the remaining $115.2 million were used to fund purchases of U.S. Treasury securities and are not included in the Company's measurements of leverage.  Including net long TBA securities and excluding investments in RCS and mortgage REIT equity securities, the Company's "at risk" leverage ratio was 5.8x as of March 31, 2014 and averaged 5.3x during the first quarter.

The $5.2 billion borrowed under agency and non-agency repurchase agreements as of March 31, 2014 had remaining maturities consisting of:

  • $2.0 billion of one month or less;
  • $1.2 billion between one and two months;
  • $0.8 billion between two and three months;
  • $0.4 billion between three and six months;
  • $0.3 billion between six and nine months;
  • $0.2 billion between nine and twelve months; and
  • $0.3 billion greater than twelve months.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's agency and non-agency repurchase agreements had an average 101 days remaining to maturity, up from 90 days at December 31, 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had repurchase agreements with 31 financial institutions and less than 6% of the Company's equity was at risk with any one counterparty, with the top five counterparties representing less than 22% of the Company's equity at risk.

The Company's interest rate swap positions as of March 31, 2014 totaled $4.0 billion in notional amount,  at a weighted average fixed pay rate of 2.06%, a weighted average receive rate of 0.24% and a weighted average maturity of 5.4 years.  Excluding forward starting swaps, the Company's interest rate swap portfolio had a notional balance of $2.1 billion and an average fixed pay rate of a 1.21%  as of March 31, 2014.  The Company enters into interest rate swaps with longer maturities with the intention of protecting its net book value and longer term earnings potential. 

The Company also utilizes interest rate swaptions to mitigate the Company's exposure to larger, more rapid increases in interest rates.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company held payer swaption contracts with a total notional amount of $425.0 million and a weighted average expiration of 1.8 years.  These swaptions have an underlying weighted average interest rate swap term of 6.8 years, with a weighted average pay rate of 3.46% as of March 31, 2014.

In addition to its interest rate swaps and swaptions, the Company held a net short position in U.S. Treasury securities and futures with a fair value of $824.3 million

As of March 31, 2014, 90% of the Company's combined repurchase agreement and net long TBA balance was hedged through interest rate swaps, interest rate swaptions, and U.S. Treasury securities and futures.

OTHER GAINS (LOSSES), NET

The Company has elected to record all investments at fair value with all changes in fair value recorded in current GAAP earnings as other gains (losses).  In addition, the Company has not designated any derivatives as hedges for GAAP accounting purposes and therefore all changes in the fair value of derivatives are recorded in current GAAP earnings as other gains (losses).

During the first quarter, the Company recorded $26.8 million in other gains (losses), net, or $0.52 per share.  Other gains (losses), net, for the quarter are comprised of:

  • $(13.1) million of net realized loss on agency securities;
  • $1.4 million of net realized gain on non-agency securities;
  • $67.6 million of net unrealized gain on agency securities;
  • $7.8 million of net unrealized gain on non-agency securities;
  • $(4.9) million in realized loss on periodic settlements of interest rate swaps;
  • $(22.0) million of net realized loss on other derivatives and securities;
  • $(19.1) million of net unrealized loss on other derivatives and securities; and
  • $9.2 million of servicing and other operating income related to the Company's investment in RCS.

Realized and unrealized net gains on other derivatives and securities during the first quarter include $(49.3) million of net loss on interest rate swaps and swaptions, $11.3 million of net gain on U.S. treasury securities and futures, $(7.8) million of net loss on TBA mortgage positions, $(1.8) million of dollar roll loss, and $6.5 million net gain on investments in mortgage REIT equity securities.

Additionally, during the first quarter, the Company recorded $14.0 million in servicing and other operating expense related to its investment in RCS.

ESTIMATED TAXABLE INCOME

REIT taxable income for the first quarter is estimated at $0.61 per share, or $(0.34) lower than GAAP net income per share.

The primary differences between tax and GAAP net income are (i) unrealized gains and losses associated with investment securities, interest rate swaps and other derivatives and securities marked-to-market in current income for GAAP purposes, but excluded from taxable income until realized or settled, (ii) timing differences, both temporary and potentially permanent, in the recognition of certain realized gains and losses (iii) losses or undistributed income of taxable REIT subsidiaries, and (iv) temporary differences related to the amortization and accretion of net premiums and discounts paid on investments.

The Company's estimated taxable income for the first quarter excludes $0.38 per share of estimated net capital losses, which are not deductible from the Company's ordinary taxable income but may be carried forward and applied against future net capital gains for up to five years. 

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had approximately $37.3 million of estimated undistributed taxable income ("UTI"), or $0.73 per share, net of dividends declared.  UTI excludes the Company's net capital loss carryforwards and net deferred gains from terminated or expired swaps and swaptions.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company had estimated cumulative non-deductible net capital losses of $(214.6) million, or $(4.20) per share, which may be carried forward and applied against future net capital gains for up to five years.  Additionally, as of March 31, 2014, the Company had estimated net deferred gains from terminated swaps and swaptions of $80.9 million, or $1.58 per share, which will be amortized into future ordinary taxable income over the remaining terms of the underlying swaps.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

During the first quarter, the Company made open market purchases of 0.2 million shares of its common stock, or 0.4% of the Company's outstanding shares as of December 31, 2013.  The shares were purchased at an average net repurchase price of $19.67 per share, including expenses, totaling $4.2 million.  

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had an additional $134.9 million available for repurchases of its common stock through December 31, 2014, as authorized by the Board of Directors.  The Company intends to repurchase shares when the repurchase price is meaningfully less than its estimate of the current net book value per share.

FIRST QUARTER 2014 DIVIDEND DECLARATION

On March 20, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a first quarter dividend of $0.65 per share, which was paid on April 28, 2014, to common stockholders of record as of March 31, 2014.  Since the August 2011 initial public offering, the Company has declared and paid a total of $318.2 million in dividends, or $8.30 per share.

Capital losses in excess of capital gains represents 2014 year-to-date capital losses in excess of capital gains. The Company's estimated taxable income for the first quarter excludes $0.38 per share of estimated net capital losses, which are not deductible from the Company's ordinary taxable income but may be carried forward for up to five years and applied against future net capital gains, as well as $0.03 per share of gains on terminated swaps and $0.27 per share of gains on terminated or expired swaptions, which for income tax purposes are deferred and amortized into future ordinary taxable income over the remaining terms of the underlying swaps.

(5)

Including a reduction for the average market value of REIT equity securities and our investment in RCS, the average stockholder's equity for the first quarter was $1.0 billion.

(6)

Weighted average cost of funds includes periodic settlements of interest rate swaps.

(7)

 

Estimated dollar roll income is net of short TBAs used for hedging purposes. Dollar roll income excludes the impact of other supplemental hedges, and is recognized in gain (loss) on derivative instruments and other securities, net.

Leverage during the period was calculated by dividing the Company's daily weighted average agency and non-agency repurchase agreements for the period by the Company's average month-ended stockholders' equity for the period less investments in RCS and REIT equity securities.  Leverage excludes U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements.

(9)

Leverage at period end was calculated by dividing the sum of the amount outstanding under the Company's agency and non-agency repurchase agreements and the net receivable/payable for unsettled securities at period end by the Company's stockholders' equity at period end less investments in RCS and REIT equity securities. Leverage excludes U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements.

(10)

Expenses exclude $14.0 million in servicing and other operating expense related to the Company's investment in RCS.

(11)

Average stockholders' equity excludes investments in REIT equity securities and RCS.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements are based on estimates, projections, beliefs and assumptions of management of the Company at the time of such statements and are not guarantees of future performance or results.  Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties in predicting future results and conditions.  Actual results could differ materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements due to a variety of important factors, including, without limitation, changes in interest rates, changes in the yield curve, changes in prepayment rates, the availability and terms of financing, changes in the market value of the Company's assets, the receipt of regulatory approval or other closing conditions for a transaction, general economic conditions, market conditions, conditions in the market for agency and non-agency securities and mortgage related investments, and legislative and regulatory changes that could adversely affect the business of the Company.  Certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements, are included in the Company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  Copies are available on the SEC's website, www.sec.gov.  The Company disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements based on the occurrence of future events, the receipt or new information, or otherwise.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes certain non-GAAP financial information, including net spread income, estimated taxable income and certain financial metrics derived from non-GAAP information, such as estimated undistributed taxable income, which the Company's management uses in its internal analysis of results, and believes may be informative to investors.

Net spread income consists of adjusted net interest income, less total operating expenses. Adjusted net interest income is interest income less interest expense (or "GAAP net interest income"), less other periodic interest rate swap interest costs reported in other gains (losses), net.

Estimated REIT taxable income is pre-tax income calculated in accordance with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code rather than GAAP. Estimated taxable income differs from GAAP income because of both temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition. Examples include (i) unrealized gains and losses associated with interest rate swaps and other derivatives and securities marked-to-market in current income for GAAP purposes, but excluded from estimated taxable income until realized or settled, (ii) timing differences, both temporary and potentially permanent, in the recognition of certain realized gains and losses (iii) losses or undistributed income of taxable REIT subsidiaries, and (iv) temporary differences related to the amortization of net premiums or accretion of discounts on investments. Furthermore, estimated taxable income can include certain information that is subject to potential adjustments up to the time of filing of the appropriate tax returns, which occurs after the end of the calendar year of the Company.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information useful to investors because net spread income is a financial metric used by management and investors and estimated taxable income is directly related to the amount of dividends the Company is required to distribute in order to maintain its REIT tax qualification status. The Company also believes that providing investors with net spread income, estimated taxable income and certain financial metrics derived based on such estimated taxable income, in addition to the related GAAP measures, gives investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. However, because net spread income and estimated taxable income are an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and involve differences from net income computed in accordance with GAAP, net spread income and estimated taxable income should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of net spread income and estimated taxable income may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.
