Business Wire

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Imperial Holdings, Inc. (IFT) ("Imperial" or the "Company"), a specialty finance company with a focus on providing liquidity solutions to owners of illiquid financial assets, announced today its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Three Months Ended September 30, 2013

Total income was $17.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a total loss of ($14.3 million) for the same period in 2012. The increase was primarily due to an increase in the change in fair value of the Company's investment in life settlements. Total expenses were $11.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $17.2 million for the same period in 2012. The decrease in expenses was primarily due to lower legal fees of $5.8 million.

The Company reported net income of $6.2 million, or $.29 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of ($31.5 million), or ($1.48) per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013

Total income was $93.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $11.8 million for the same period in 2012, an $81.2 million increase. Total expenses were $43.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to total expenses of $52.9 million for the same period in 2012.

The Company reported net income of $49.6 million, or $2.34 per fully diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of ($41.0 million), or ($1.93) per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had $13.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $13.5 million in restricted cash. Restricted cash includes $12.5 million received from the Company’s D&O Carrier and $1.0 million which was contributed by the Company in contemplation of the final settlement of the class action and derivative litigation matters. The September 30th cash balance does not reflect the recently announced sale of the Company’s structured settlements business segment for $12 million. The Company’s book value was $8.35 per share at September 30, 2013.

Life Settlements Portfolio Highlights

At September 30, 2013, the estimated fair value of the Company’s 622 life insurance policies was $292.4 million compared to $113.4 million for 214 life insurance policies at December 31, 2012. The weighted average discount rate used in the Company's fair value model was 19.63% at September 30, 2013, compared to 24.01% at December 31, 2012. The aggregate face value of the Company's portfolio of life insurance policies was approximately $3.0 billion at September 30, 2013.

Antony Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “With the sale of our structured settlements business, our cash position has significantly improved and we have continued to simplify our investment thesis.” Mr. Mitchell concluded, “We will end 2013 a leaner, more nimble organization with reduced operating costs and personnel. Looking ahead, we remain quite optimistic at the opportunities in the Life Settlement space.”
