Altisource Asset Management Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, August 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Developments

Net income from continuing operations of $2.2 million for the second quarter was fueled in part by (i) the realized gains on sales of the equity securities and the associated dividend income, and (ii) reduced expenses on salaries and benefits due to forfeited bonuses from departed executives.
Maintained liquidity to position the Company to have access to capital to consummate prospective business opportunities. Liquidity consists of $52.0 million in cash and $39.8 million in equity securities.
Paid off the $28.4 million outstanding balance on the margin loan from proceeds of sales of equity securities.
Hired Stephen Krallman as the new Chief Financial Officer of the Company.
Hired Kevin Sullivan to be the new General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of the Company.

“The Company’s attention and focus” stated Thomas K. McCarthy, Interim Chief Executive Officer “continues to be to identify and evaluate business opportunities and acquisition targets in which to potentially focus the Company’s resources. In addition to the fund management and mortgage businesses more closely related to the Company's history, management has explored separate and distinct new business lines. While no final decision has been made on the new businesses that the Company will pursue, the Company is in different stages of discussion with several potential acquisition or merger targets including the fix and flip lending space, one in fee based real estate investment banking and one in a cryptocurrency related business.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

AAMC’s net income to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2021 was $2.2 million compared to a net loss of $(7.8) million for the same period in 2020. Diluted earnings per share was $1.01 for the quarter, compared with a diluted net loss per share of $(4.81) for the same period in 2020.

AAMC's net income to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $8.1 million compared to a net loss of $(11.6) million for the same period in 2020. Due to a $71.9 million gain on settlement of preferred shares in the first quarter of 2021, which was recorded directly to equity, but is included in the numerator for our earnings per share calculations; diluted earnings per share was $37.41 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with a diluted net loss per share of $(7.17) for the same period in 2020.
