ATLANTA, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc. (NYSE: IVR) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.(1)

(PRNewsfoto/Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc.)
(PRNewsfoto/Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc.)
  • Net loss per common share of $3.52 compared to a net loss of $7.18 in Q1 2022

  • Earnings available for distribution per common share(2) of $1.40 compared to $1.16 in Q1 2022

  • Common stock dividend of $0.90 per common share, unchanged from Q1 2022

  • Book value per common share(3) of $16.16 compared to $20.78 at Q1 2022

  • Economic return(4) of (17.9%) compared to (25.5%) in Q1 2022

Update from John Anzalone, Chief Executive Officer

"During the second quarter, our book value declined as Agency mortgage valuations remained challenged by the acceleration of monetary policy tightening by the Federal Reserve as it combats the highest rate of inflation in 40 years. In particular, escalating interest rate volatility and increased expectations for asset sales by the Federal Reserve led to sharp underperformance in lower coupon Agency residential mortgage-backed securities ("Agency RMBS"). While our outlook on valuations remains cautious in the near term, we expect the environment for Agency RMBS to improve later this year given the attractiveness of spreads relative to other fixed income sectors and the decline in mortgage origination.

"Given this backdrop, we reduced leverage by 35% during the quarter, taking our debt-to-equity ratio to 3.4x from 5.2x and our economic debt-to-equity ratio(2) to 3.9x from 6.5x. At quarter-end, substantially all of our $4.4 billion investment portfolio, including to-be-announced securities forward contracts ("TBAs"), was invested in Agency RMBS, and we maintained a sizeable balance of unrestricted cash and unencumbered investments totaling $677.1 million.

"Despite the reduction in leverage, earnings available for distribution ("EAD") for the second quarter increased to $1.40 per common share as we expanded our net interest rate margin by rotating our portfolio into higher coupon Agency RMBS that offer a more attractive yield profile. In addition, favorable funding in both repurchase and dollar roll markets continues to support EAD.

"Following the end of the quarter, we have continued to improve our capital structure through repurchases of Series B and Series C Preferred Stock. Since the inception of the repurchase program in May 2022, we have repurchased 5.3 million shares of our Series B and Series C Preferred Stock, representing approximately 30% of our preferred stock outstanding prior to the start of the repurchase program. Further, we continue to evaluate additional investment opportunities to complement our Agency RMBS strategy by expanding our target assets and portfolio diversification."

(1) For all periods presented in this press release, common share and per common share amounts have been adjusted on a retroactive basis to reflect the Company's one-for-ten reverse stock split, which was effected following the close of business on June 3, 2022.

(2) Earnings available for distribution (and by calculation, earnings available for distribution per common share) and economic debt-to-equity ratio are non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") financial measures. Refer to the section entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for important disclosures and a reconciliation to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure.

(3) Book value per common share is calculated as total stockholders' equity less the liquidation preference of the Company's Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock ($153.9 million and $272.0 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2022 and $155.0 million and $287.5 million, respectively, as of March 31, 2022), divided by total common shares outstanding.

(4) Economic return for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 is defined as the change in book value per common share from March 31, 2022 to June 30, 2022 of ($4.62); plus dividends declared of $0.90 per common share; divided by the March 31, 2022 book value per common share of $20.78. Economic return for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 is defined as the change in book value per common share from December 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022 of ($8.31); plus dividends declared of $0.90 per common share; divided by the December 31, 2021 book value per common share of $29.09.

(2) Period-end weighted average asset yields are based on amortized cost as of period-end and incorporate future prepayment and loss assumptions.

(3) Book value per common share is calculated as total stockholders' equity less the liquidation preference of the Company's Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock, ($153.9 million and $272.0 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2022 and $155.0 million and $287.5 million, respectively, as of March 31, 2022), divided by total common shares outstanding.

(4) Earnings available for distribution (and by calculation, earnings available for distribution per common share), effective interest expense (and by calculation, effective cost of funds), effective net interest income (and by calculation, effective interest rate margin), and economic debt-to-equity ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to the section entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for important disclosures and a reconciliation to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders (and by calculation, basic earnings (loss) per common share), total interest income (and by calculation, average earning asset yields), total interest expense (and by calculation, cost of funds), net interest income (and by calculation, net interest rate margin) and debt-to-equity ratio.

Financial Summary

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2022 was $116.1 million compared to $236.8 million for the first quarter of 2022. The change was primarily driven by a $324.9 million net loss on investments in the second quarter of 2022 compared to a $504.4 million net loss on investments in the first quarter of 2022 and a $181.7 million net gain on derivatives in the second quarter of 2022 compared to a $238.9 million net gain on derivatives in the first quarter of 2022. The Company earned $41.1 million of net interest income in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $44.3 million of net interest income in the first quarter of 2022.

Earnings available for distribution increased to $46.1 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $38.1 million for the first quarter of 2022 primarily due to a $9.5 million increase in effective net interest income, partially offset by a $1.5 million decrease in TBA dollar roll income.

Book value per common share for the second quarter of 2022 decreased 22% to $16.16 as escalating inflationary pressures led to increased expectations for tighter monetary policy and elevated market volatility. Agency RMBS valuations were sharply lower for the second consecutive quarter, resulting in the sector's worst first half performance in over 30 years. Book value is estimated to be between $17.01 and $17.71 per common share as of July 31, 2022.

The Company reduced the size of its investment portfolio, including TBAs, by 45% as of June 30, 2022 compared to March 31, 2022 given its expectations that the Federal Reserve's acceleration of monetary policy tightening could result in an increase in market volatility and lower valuations on the Company's holdings. Total average earning assets were $4.7 billion in the second quarter of 2022, down from $7.0 billion in the first quarter of 2022. Total average borrowings were $4.1 billion in the second quarter of 2022, down from $6.2 billion in the first quarter of 2022.

Average net interest rate margin increased 93 basis points to 3.48% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2022 primarily due to higher average earning asset yields. Average earning asset yields increased 141 basis points to 3.82% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2022 primarily due to the Company's rotation into higher yielding Agency RMBS. The Company's Agency RMBS portfolio consisted primarily of 3.0% to 5.0% coupon 30 year fixed-rate securities as of June 30, 2022. Average cost of funds increased 48 basis points to 0.34% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2022 as the Federal Reserve raised the Federal Funds target rate.

The Company's debt-to-equity ratio was 3.4x as of June 30, 2022 compared to 5.2x as of March 31, 2022, and its economic debt-to-equity ratio was 3.9x as of June 30, 2022 compared to 6.5x as of March 31, 2022. The Company decreased leverage in anticipation of market volatility and lower valuations on the Company's holdings.

Total expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were approximately $7.1 million compared to $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2022. The ratio of annualized total expenses to average stockholders' equity(1) increased to 3.01% in the second quarter of 2022 from 2.57% in the first quarter of 2022 primarily due to the Company's lower average stockholders' equity base.

As previously announced on June 27, 2022, the Company declared a common stock dividend of $0.90 per share paid on July 27, 2022 to its stockholders of record as of July 11, 2022. The Company declared the following dividends on August 2, 2022: a Series B Preferred Stock dividend of $0.4844 per share payable on September 27, 2022 to its stockholders of record as of September 5, 2022 and a Series C Preferred Stock dividend of $0.46875 per share payable on September 27, 2022 to its stockholders of record as of September 5, 2022.

(1) The ratio of annualized total expenses to average stockholders' equity is calculated as the annualized sum of management fees plus general and administrative expenses divided by average stockholders' equity.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The table below shows the non-GAAP financial measures the Company uses to analyze its operating results and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in assessing its performance as discussed further below.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company's management should be analyzed in conjunction with U.S. GAAP financial measures and should not be considered substitutes for U.S. GAAP financial measures. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures of its peer companies.

Earnings Available for Distribution

The Company's business objective is to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns to its stockholders, primarily through dividends and secondarily through capital appreciation. The Company uses earnings available for distribution as a measure of its investment portfolio's ability to generate income for distribution to common stockholders and to evaluate its progress toward meeting this objective. The Company calculates earnings available for distribution as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders adjusted for (gain) loss on investments, net; realized (gain) loss on derivative instruments, net; unrealized (gain) loss on derivative instruments, net; TBA dollar roll income; gain on repurchase and retirement of preferred stock; (gain) loss on foreign currency transactions, net and amortization of net deferred (gain) loss on de-designated interest rate swaps.

By excluding the gains and losses discussed above, the Company believes the presentation of earnings available for distribution provides a consistent measure of operating performance that investors can use to evaluate its results over multiple reporting periods and, to a certain extent, compare to its peer companies. However, because not all of the Company's peer companies use identical operating performance measures, the Company's presentation of earnings available for distribution may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by its peer companies. The Company excludes the impact of gains and losses when calculating earnings available for distribution because (i) when analyzed in conjunction with its U.S. GAAP results, earnings available for distribution provides additional detail of its investment portfolio's earnings capacity and (ii) gains and losses are not accounted for consistently under U.S. GAAP. Under U.S. GAAP, certain gains and losses are reflected in net income whereas other gains and losses are reflected in other comprehensive income. For example, a portion of the Company's mortgage-backed securities are classified as available-for-sale securities, and changes in the valuation of these securities are recorded in other comprehensive income on its condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company elected the fair value option for its mortgage-backed securities purchased on or after September 1, 2016, and changes in the valuation of these securities are recorded in other income (loss) in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. In addition, certain gains and losses represent one-time events. The Company may add and has added additional reconciling items to its earnings available for distribution calculation as appropriate. The Company added the gain on repurchase and retirement of preferred stock as a reconciling item to its earnings available for distribution calculation in the second quarter of 2022 because the gain does not represent earnings on its investment portfolio.

To maintain qualification as a REIT, U.S. federal income tax law generally requires that the Company distributes at least 90% of its REIT taxable income annually, determined without regard to the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gains. The Company has historically distributed at least 100% of its REIT taxable income. Because the Company views earnings available for distribution as a consistent measure of its investment portfolio's ability to generate income for distribution to common stockholders, earnings available for distribution is one metric, but not the exclusive metric, that the Company's board of directors uses to determine the amount, if any, and the payment date of dividends on common stock. However, earnings available for distribution should not be considered as an indication of the Company's taxable income, a guaranty of its ability to pay dividends or as a proxy for the amount of dividends it may pay, as earnings available for distribution excludes certain items that impact its cash needs.

Earnings available for distribution is an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and there are other factors that impact the achievement of the Company's business objective. The Company cautions that earnings available for distribution should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP), or as an indication of the Company's cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP), a measure of the Company's liquidity, or as an indication of amounts available to fund its cash needs.
