MANAGEMENT REMARKS

"We are pleased with our Company’s progression during the third quarter as we continue to focus on creating earnings power while maintaining adequate liquidity and increasing book value for our shareholders," said Chief Executive Officer, David Roberts. "During the quarter, we increased our book value per share from $2.75 at June 30, 2020 to $3.34 at September 30, 2020. We generated $0.44 of net income per diluted common share driven by strong performance from Arc Home."

"During the quarter, we were active in the market acquiring Agency whole pools and residential loans as well as completing two securitizations, inclusive of our second rated Non-QM deal in 2020, further transitioning our financing to non-MTM non-recourse from MTM recourse and lowering our cost of funds. We also continued to maintain a low Economic Leverage Ratio of 0.9x, compared to 0.8x at the end of the second quarter," noted Chief Investment Officer, T.J. Durkin.

Mr. Durkin added, "Arc Home continued to experience strong performance during the quarter, with another new record quarter in Agency volumes and gross production margins, expanding on its trend from the second quarter. This resulted in Arc Home achieving record profitability of $29.5 million, up from $16.9 million in the second quarter. As noted in the prior quarter, Arc Home was also one of the first originators to re-enter the Non-QM business and we are seeing the pipeline for that product continue to grow at a healthy pace."

(1) The three months ended September 30, 2020 includes cumulative and undeclared dividends of $5.6 million on the Company's Preferred Stock as of September 30, 2020. The three months ended September 30, 2019 includes cumulative and undeclared dividends of $0.4 million on the Company's 8.000% Series C Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock as of September 30, 2019.

Footnotes

(1) Diluted per share figures are calculated using weighted average outstanding shares in accordance with GAAP. Accumulated and unpaid preferred stock dividends of $11.2 million are reflected in earnings per share. Per share figures are calculated using a denominator of all outstanding common shares including vested shares granted to our Manager and our independent directors under our equity incentive plans as of quarter-end. Book value is calculated using stockholders’ equity less net proceeds of our 8.25% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ($48.9 million), 8.00% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ($110.5 million), and 8.000% Series C Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ($110.5 million) as the numerator. As of September 30, 2020, the liquidation preference for the Series A, Series B and Series C Preferred Stock is $52.8 million, $118.8 million and $118.8 million, respectively. The aggregate liquidation preference of the three series as of September 30, 2020 includes accumulated and unpaid dividends (whether or not authorized or declared) in the amount of $11.2 million. Book value does not include any accrual of undeclared dividends on our Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock.

(2) The investment portfolio at period end is calculated by summing the net carrying value of our Agency RMBS, Residential Investments, Commercial Investments, and where applicable, any long positions in TBAs, and ABS Investments, including securities and mortgage loans owned through investments in affiliates, exclusive of AG Arc LLC. Our Agency RMBS, Residential Investments, Commercial Investments, and where applicable, ABS Investments, are held at fair value. Our Credit Investments refer to our Residential Investments and Commercial Investments. Refer to footnote 4 for more information on the GAAP accounting for certain items included in our investment portfolio. The percentage of fair value includes any net TBA positions and securities and mortgage loans owned through investments in affiliates and is exclusive of AG Arc LLC. As of September 30, 2020, the $1.1 billion Investment Portfolio includes $0.4 million of Agency RMBS and $217.2 million of Residential Investments recorded within "Investments in debt and equity of affiliates" on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. As of September 30, 2020, Agency RMBS includes $0.4 million of Agency Excess MSRs recorded within "Investments in debt and equity of affiliates" on the Company's consolidated balance sheet. As of September 30, 2020, Residential Investments include $39.3 million of Re/Non-Performing Loans, $152.5 million of Non-QM Loans, and $25.4 million of Land Related Financing. As of June 30, 2020, our $1.0 billion Investment Portfolio included $307.1 million of Agency RMBS and Residential Investments recorded within "Investments in debt and equity of affiliates" on the Company's consolidated balance sheet. The above items, inclusive of our investment in AG Arc LLC and other items and less any financing in investments in debt and equity of affiliates, net to $138.7 million and $122.9 million which is included in the "Investments in debt and equity of affiliates" line item on our GAAP consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively. See footnote (6) for further details on AG Arc LLC.

(3) Generally, when we purchase an investment and finance it, the investment is included in our assets and the financing is reflected in our liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet as either "Financing arrangements" or "Securitized debt, at fair value." Throughout this press release where we disclose our investment portfolio and the related financing, we have presented this information inclusive of (i) securities and mortgage loans owned through investments in affiliates that are accounted for under GAAP using the equity method and, where applicable, (ii) long positions in TBAs, which are accounted for as derivatives under GAAP.

This press release excludes investments through AG Arc LLC unless otherwise noted. This presentation of our investment portfolio is consistent with how our management evaluates the business, and we believe this presentation, when considered with the GAAP presentation, provides supplemental information useful for investors in evaluating our investment portfolio and financial condition.

Our obligation to repay our non-recourse financing arrangements is limited to the value of the pledged collateral thereunder and does not create a general claim against us as an entity.
