Altisource Asset Management Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results; Continues to Successfully Deliver on RESI's Strategic Objectives

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Asset Management Corporation ("AAMC" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT:AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2016.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Negotiated a non-binding letter of intent for Altisource Residential Corporation ("RESI") to purchase up to 3,500 rental homes with seller financing from two entities sponsored by Amherst Holdings, LLC, with the first closing expected to occur in the first quarter of 2017.1
  • Successfully integrated RESI's recently purchased portfolio of 4,262 rental properties into its growing single-family rental business.
  • Managed an increase of RESI's fourth quarter 2016 rental revenue by 154% over the third quarter to $24.3 million.
  • Facilitated RESI's agreements for the sale of two loan portfolios sales totaling 2,940 mortgage loans with an unpaid principal balance ("UPB") of $694.7 million for estimated proceeds of approximately 97% of RESI's September 30, 2016 balance sheet carrying value. Upon completion, the sales are expected to represent the divestiture by RESI of substantially all of its mortgage loan portfolio.2
  • Managed RESI's sale of 468 non-rental REO properties.
  • Completed repurchases of $4.2 million of AAMC common stock, bringing total repurchases under AAMC's repurchase program to $260.5 million.

Full Year 2016 Highlights

  • Increased RESI's rental portfolio by 215% to 8,603 homes as of December 31, 2016 from 2,732 properties as of December 31, 2015.
  • Increased RESI's rental revenue by 267% over the 2015 fiscal year to $48.6 million.
  • Diversified the RESI's property management services, adding Main Street Renewal, LLC as an additional nationwide property manager for a large portion of RESI's single-family rental portfolio.
  • Reduced RESI's mortgage loan portfolio by 54% from 7,036 loans with an aggregate UPB of $1.8 billion at December 31, 2015 to 3,474 loans with an aggregate UPB of $823.3 million at December 31, 2016.
  • Assisted RESI in the sale of 2,668 non-rental REO properties compared to the 1,321 REO properties sold in 2015.
  • Facilitated RESI's continued optimization of its funding with longer term financing and higher advance rates.

"Over the past year, we generated substantial growth for RESI's SFR portfolio, ensured the continued improvement of RESI's rental operating metrics and managed RESI's divestiture of legacy loan and REO assets in favor of productive single-family rental properties," stated Chief Executive Officer George Ellison. "Our long-term view remains that AAMC's ultimate success and profitability will be directly attributable to our continued success in executing on RESI's stated business objectives."

Net loss attributable to stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2016 totaled $1.7 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, compared to net loss attributable to stockholders of $8.9 million, or $4.12 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Summary Management Reporting Information

Prior to our deconsolidation of RESI, we evaluated the operations of AAMC on a stand-alone basis in addition to evaluating our consolidated financial performance, which included the results of RESI and NewSource under U.S. GAAP. In evaluating our operating performance and managing our business under the Original AMA, we considered the incentive management fees and reimbursement of expenses paid to us by RESI as well as our stand-alone operating expenses. We maintained our internal management reporting on this basis. The following tables present our consolidating balance sheets and statements of operations, which are reconciled to U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, the entries necessary to consolidate AAMC's subsidiaries, including, but not limited to, elimination of investment in subsidiaries, elimination of intercompany receivables and payables, elimination of fees paid under the asset management agreement and reimbursed expenses, are reflected in the Consolidating Entries column.

Upon our adoption of ASU 2015-02, we are no longer required to consolidate the results of RESI. Therefore, we do not present the table for the current period.

The following tables include non-GAAP performance measures that we believe are useful to assist investors in gaining an understanding of the trends and operating results for our business on a stand-alone basis. This information should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, our financial results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
