Altisource Asset Management Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, November 6, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights and Recent Developments

Negotiated and executed a Termination and Transition Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) with Front Yard Residential Corporation (“Front Yard”) on terms resulting in payments to AAMC of over $54 million plus management fees through the date that Front Yard delivers written notice to AAMC that the transition has been satisfactorily completed.
Further developed new business lines for AAMC, including formation of an investment fund, targeted commencement of a short-term investor loan aggregation business and the establishment of strategic relationships with real estate loan originators.

“We expect that our new business lines will leverage our history and experience in asset management, real estate investing and real estate operations” stated Indroneel Chatterjee, Co-Chief Executive Officer. “We have taken steps to reduce our annual operating expenses, including reductions in our physical office footprint and the optimization of our workforce upon the termination of our asset management agreement with Front Yard. We expect that AAMC will be able to generate management fees and returns on its own investments through each of our new opportunities, and we are targeting the achievement of positive net income for both 2020 and 2021. We believe these new business initiatives will benefit our stockholders over the long term.”

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

AAMC’s net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $11.8 million, or $7.20 per diluted common share, which included a $0.1 million change in the fair value of its shares of Front Yard common stock, compared to a net loss of $3.5 million, or $2.25 per diluted common share, which included a $(1.1) million change in the fair value of its shares of Front Yard common stock, for the third quarter of 2019.

AAMC's net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $0.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted common share, which included a $(5.8) million change in the fair value of its shares of Front Yard common stock, compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.77 per diluted common share, which included a $4.6 million change in the fair value of its shares of Front Yard common stock, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
