"Despite facing considerable volatility in the mortgage market during the third quarter, we were able to generate solid economic returns for our shareholders," stated Gary Kain, MTGE's President and Chief Investment Officer. "The non-agency market can be characterized by light supply and continued improvement in prices. On the agency side, consistent with our market outlook, we further repositioned the portfolio away from 30-year MBS and into more 15-year securities and ARMs. We are confident that our commitment to active portfolio management, our growing capabilities across the mortgage investment spectrum and our continued prioritization of risk management over short term metrics should help us to generate attractive returns for our shareholders over the long term."

Commenting on the quarter, John Erickson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "During the third quarter we continued to execute on the stock repurchase plan that was put in place a year ago. During the quarter, we repurchased 3.2 million shares at an average net cost of $19.58 per share, which represents 5.7% of shares outstanding as of the prior quarter end. In addition, despite the challenging macroeconomic backdrop, MTGE has generated an economic return of over 20% since the beginning of QE3 and a life-to-date economic return of over 46%."

NET BOOK VALUE

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's net book value per share was $22.37, or $(0.26) per share lower than the net book value per share of $22.63 as of June 30, 2013.

INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's $7.7 billion investment portfolio included $8.4 billion of agency securities, $(1.6) billion of net short TBA mortgage positions, and non-agency securities of $0.9 billion.

The Company accounts for dollar roll positions as derivative instruments and recognizes dollar roll income/loss in other gains (losses), net on the Company's financial statements. As of September 30, 2013, the Company's net short TBA mortgage portfolio had a notional fair value of $(1,609.9) million and cost basis of $(1,556.9) million, respectively, with a net carrying value of $(53.0) million reported in derivative assets/(liabilities) on the Company's balance sheet.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's agency investment portfolio was comprised of $6,339.3 million of fixed-rate investments, inclusive of the net short TBA position and $448.7 million of adjustable-rate securities.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's fixed-rate mortgage investments were comprised of $3,015.4 million ≤15 year securities, $153.0 million 20 year fixed-rate securities, $4,780.7 million 30 year fixed-rate securities, $(457.7) million 15 year net short TBA and $(1,152.2) million 30 year net short TBA, at fair value. As of September 30, 2013, ≤15 year fixed rate investments, inclusive of the net short TBA position, represented 38% of the Company's agency investment portfolio, an increase from 29% as of June 30, 2013, and 30 year fixed rate investments, inclusive of the net short TBA position, represented 53% of the Company's agency investment portfolio, a decrease from 69% as of June 30, 2013.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's fixed-rate mortgage assets, inclusive of the net TBA position, had a weighted average coupon of 3.49%, comprised of a weighted average coupon of 3.21% for ≤15 year fixed rate securities, 3.29% for 20 year fixed-rate securities and 3.70% for 30 year fixed-rate securities.

As of September 30, 2013, 94% of the Company's fixed-rate agency securities, inclusive of net short TBA mortgage positions, were comprised of securities backed by lower loan balance mortgages and loans originated under the U.S. Government sponsored Home Affordable Refinance Program ("HARP"), which typically have a lower risk of prepayment in a low or declining interest rate environment relative to generic agency securities. The Company defines lower loan balance securities as pools backed by original loan balances of up to $150,000 and HARP securities as pools backed by 100% refinance loans with original loan-to-values of at least 80%. As of September 30, 2013, the weighted average "pay-up" measured across the Company's fixed-rate TBA deliverable mortgage asset portfolio was approximately 0.14% over the corresponding generic TBA price.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's $927.9 million non-agency portfolio was comprised of 54% Alt-A, 19% prime, 11% option ARM and 16% subprime securities.

AGENCY CONSTANT PREPAYMENT RATES

The actual CPR for the Company's agency portfolio during the third quarter of 2013 was 6.7%, compared to 7.4% during the second quarter of 2013. The CPR published in October 2013 for the Company's agency portfolio held as of September 30, 2013 was 5.7%, and the weighted average projected CPR for the remaining life of the Company's agency securities held as of September 30, 2013 was 7.3%, compared to 6.3% as of June 30, 2013. 

The Company amortizes and accretes premiums and discounts associated with purchases of agency securities into interest income over the estimated life of such securities based on actual and projected CPRs using the effective yield method.  The amortization of premiums (net of any accretion of discounts) on the agency portfolio for the quarter was $12.8 million, or $0.24 per share.  The change in the Company's weighted average projected CPR estimate resulted in recognition of approximately $(0.8) million, or $(0.01) per common share, of "catch-up" premium amortization expense during the quarter.

The weighted average cost basis of the Company's agency securities was 104.5% and the unamortized agency net premium was $371.8 million as of September 30, 2013. As such, slower actual and projected prepayments can have a meaningful positive impact, while faster actual or projected prepayments can have a meaningful negative impact on the Company's agency asset yields.

NON-AGENCY DISCOUNT ACCRETION

The weighted average cost basis of the Company's non-agency portfolio was 58.2% of par as of September 30, 2013. Discount accretion on the non-agency portfolio for the quarter was $10.5 million, or $0.19 per share. The total net discount remaining was $615.4 million as of September 30, 2013, with $255.5 million designated as credit reserves.

ASSET YIELDS, COST OF FUNDS AND NET INTEREST RATE SPREAD

The Company's average asset yield on its investment portfolio for the third quarter was 3.04%, compared to 3.17% for the second quarter. Excluding the impact of "catch-up" premium amortization benefit recognized  due to changes in projected CPR estimates, the annualized weighted average yield on the Company's investment portfolio was 3.07% for the third quarter, compared to 3.02% for the second quarter. The Company's average asset yield as of September 30, 2013 was 3.00%, a 10 bps decrease from 3.10% as of June 30, 2013.

The Company's average cost of funds (derived from the cost of repurchase agreements and interest rate swaps) increased 13 bps to 1.21% for the third quarter, from 1.08% for the second quarter. The Company's average cost of funds increased 7 bps to 1.23% as of September 30, 2013 from 1.16% as of June 30, 2013. The increase in the Company's average cost of funds was due to higher average swap costs associated with longer duration swaps commencing during the quarter.

The Company's average net interest rate spread, inclusive of estimated dollar roll income/loss, for the third quarter was 1.63%, a decrease of 67 bps from 2.30% for the second quarter. Excluding estimated dollar roll loss, the Company's average net interest rate spread for the third quarter was 1.82%, compared to 2.09% for the second quarter.  Excluding estimated dollar roll income, the Company's average net interest rate spread was 1.77% as of September 30, 2013, compared to 1.94% as of June 30, 2013.

LEVERAGE AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

As of September 30, 2013, $8.4 billion of the Company's repurchase agreements were used to fund acquisitions of agency and non-agency securities, while the remaining $0.9 billion were used to fund purchases of U.S. Treasury securities and not included in the Company's measurements of leverage. Including net short TBAs outstanding with a cost basis of $(1.6) billion, the Company's "at risk" leverage ratio was 5.7x as of September 30, 2013.  Average at risk leverage during the quarter was 6.3x including the impact of $(0.7) billion of net short TBAs at cost.

The $8.4 billion borrowed under agency and non-agency repurchase agreements as of September 30, 2013 had remaining maturities consisting of:

  • $2,820.0 million of one month or less;
  • $2,324.4 million between one and two months;
  • $1,686.8 million between two and three months;
  • $1,083.3 million between three and six months;
  • $35.1 million between six and nine months;
  • $153.0 million between nine and twelve months; and
  • $250.0 million greater than twelve months.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's agency and non-agency repurchase agreements had an average 90 days remaining to maturity, a decrease from 93 days as of June 30, 2013.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had repurchase agreements with 30 financial institutions and less than 9% of the Company's equity was at risk with any one counterparty, with the top five counterparties representing less than 27% of the Company's equity at risk.

The Company's interest rate swap positions as of September 30, 2013 totaled $4.4 billion in notional amount  at a weighted average fixed pay rate of 1.62%, a weighted average receive rate of 0.26% and a weighted average maturity of 6.2 years.  The Company enters into interest rate swaps with longer maturities with the intention of protecting its net book value and longer term earnings potential. 

The Company also utilizes interest rate swaptions to mitigate the Company's exposure to larger, more rapid increases in interest rates. As of September 30, 2013, the Company held payer swaption contracts with a total notional amount of $2.2 billion and a weighted average expiration of 1.2 years.  These swaptions have an underlying weighted average interest rate swap term of 7.5 years, with a weighted average pay rate of 2.99%.

As a partial offset to its interest rate swaps and swaptions, the Company held a $0.7 billion net long position in U.S. Treasury securities and futures. 

As of September 30, 2013, 88% of the Company's combined repurchase agreement and net short TBA balance was hedged through interest rate swaps and interest rate swaptions, less net long positions in U.S. Treasury securities and futures.

OTHER GAINS (LOSSES), NET

The Company has elected to record all investments at fair value with all changes in fair value recorded in current GAAP earnings as other gains (losses).  In addition, the Company has not designated any derivatives as hedges for GAAP accounting purposes and therefore all changes in the fair value of derivatives are recorded in current GAAP earnings as other gains (losses).

During the third quarter, the Company recorded $(39.2) million in other gains (losses), net, or $(0.72) per share.  Other gains (losses), net, for the quarter are comprised of:

  • $(71.2) million of net realized loss on agency securities;
  • $5.9 million of net realized gain on non-agency securities;
  • $80.9 million of net unrealized gain on agency securities;
  • $(0.4) million of net unrealized loss on non-agency securities;
  • $(14.4) million in realized loss on periodic settlements of interest rate swaps;
  • $65.3 million of net realized gain on other derivatives and securities; and
  • $(105.1) million of net unrealized loss on other derivatives and securities.

Realized and unrealized net gains on other derivatives and securities during the third quarter include $(14.1) million related to interest rate swaps and swaptions, $13.3 million related to U.S. treasury securities and futures, $(6.8) million of dollar roll loss and $(32.2) million of net losses on TBA mortgage positions.

ESTIMATED TAXABLE INCOME

Taxable income for the quarter is estimated at $0.85 per share, or $0.60 higher than GAAP net income per share.

The primary differences between taxable and GAAP net income are (i) unrealized gains and losses associated with investment and derivative portfolios marked-to-market in current income for GAAP purposes but excluded from taxable income until realized or settled, (ii) temporary differences related to amortization of net premiums paid on investments and (iii) timing differences in the recognition of certain realized gains and losses.

The Company's estimated taxable income for the third quarter excludes $(1.16) per share of estimated net capital losses, which are not deductible from the Company's ordinary taxable income, as well as $0.98 per share of gains on terminated swaps and $0.26 per share of gains on terminated or expired swaptions, which for income tax purposes are deferred and amortized into future ordinary taxable income over the remaining terms of the underlying swaps.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

In September 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional $150 million of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock through December 31, 2014.  During the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company made open market purchases of 3.2 million shares of its common stock at an average net purchase price of $19.58 per share, or $62.1 million.  As of September 30, 2013, the Company has $169.2 million available for repurchase out of the total $300 million authorized.

THIRD QUARTER 2013 DIVIDEND DECLARATION

On September 19, 2013, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a third quarter dividend of $0.70 per share, payable on October 28, 2013, to common stockholders of record as of September 30, 2013. Since the August 2011 initial public offering, the Company has declared and paid a total of $251.6 million in dividends, or $7.00 per share.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had approximately $31.7 million of estimated undistributed taxable income ("UTI"), or $0.60 per share, net of dividends declared. UTI excludes the Company's non-deductible net capital losses and net deferred gains from terminated or expired swaptions. As of September 30, 2013, the Company had estimated cumulative non-deductible net capital losses of $(63.1) million, or $(1.19) per share, which may be carried forward and applied against future net capital gains for up to five years, and the Company had estimated net deferred gains from terminated swaps of $33.7 million, or $0.64 per share and net deferred gains from terminated or expired swaptions of $14.2 million, or $0.27 per share, which will be amortized into future ordinary taxable income over the remaining terms of the underlying swaps.

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE

During the third quarter, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MTGE signed definitive documentation to acquire Residential Credit Solutions, Inc. ("RCS"), a fully-licensed servicer of mortgage loans based in Fort Worth, Texas.  RCS has an experienced management team with a fully-developed infrastructure and has obtained approvals from the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae) to hold and manage mortgage servicing rights (MSRs).  Subject to the satisfaction of the closing conditions set forth in the definitive documentation including regulatory approval, MTGE anticipates consummating the transaction in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Not meaningful. Prior to the first quarter of 2013, the Company's net TBA position consisted of short TBAs used for hedging purposes.

(1)      

Table includes non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" for additional discussion of non-GAAP financial measures.

(2)     

Capital losses in excess of capital gains represents calendar year 2013 year to date capital losses in excess of capital gains. The Company's estimated taxable income for the third quarter excludes $(1.16) per share of estimated net capital losses, which are not deductible from the Company's ordinary taxable income but may be carried forward for up to five years and applied against future net capital gains, as well as $0.98 per share of gains on terminated swaps and $0.26 per share of gains on terminated or expired swaptions, which for income tax purposes are deferred and amortized into future ordinary taxable income over the remaining terms of the underlying swaps.

(3)     

Weighted average cost of funds includes periodic settlements of interest rate swaps.

(4)     

Estimated dollar roll income is net of short TBAs used for hedging purposes. Dollar roll income excludes the impact of other supplemental hedges, and is recognized in gain (loss) on derivative instruments and other securities, net.

(5)     

Leverage during the period was calculated by dividing the Company's daily weighted average agency and non-agency repurchase agreements for the period by the Company's average month-ended stockholders' equity for the period.  Leverage excludes U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements.

(6)     

Leverage at period end was calculated by dividing the sum of the amount outstanding under the Company's agency and non-agency repurchase agreements and the net receivable/payable for unsettled securities at period end by the Company's stockholders' equity at period end. Leverage excludes U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements are based on estimates, projections, beliefs and assumptions of management of the Company at the time of such statements and are not guarantees of future performance or results.  Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties in predicting future results and conditions.  Actual results could differ materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements due to a variety of important factors, including, without limitation, changes in interest rates, changes in the yield curve, changes in prepayment rates, the availability and terms of financing, changes in the market value of our assets, the receipt of regulatory approval or other closing conditions for a transaction, general economic conditions, market conditions, conditions in the market for agency and non-agency securities and mortgage related investments, and legislative and regulatory changes that could adversely affect the business of the Company.  Certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements, are included in the Company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  Copies are available on the SEC's website, www.sec.gov. The Company disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements based on the occurrence of future events, the receipt or new information, or otherwise.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes certain non-GAAP financial information, including net spread income, net spread and dollar roll income, estimated taxable income and certain financial metrics derived from non-GAAP information, such as estimated undistributed taxable income, which the Company's management uses in its internal analysis of results, and believes may be informative to investors.

GAAP interest expense does not include interest related to periodic settlements associated with undesignated interest rate swaps. Periodic interest settlements associated with undesignated interest rate swaps are reported in realized gain (loss) on periodic settlements of interest rate swaps on our consolidated statement of operations. As we believe that these items are beneficial to the understanding of our investment performance, we provide a non-GAAP measure called adjusted net interest income, which includes the impact of net periodic settlements of interest rates swaps.  Additionally, we present net spread income as a measure of our operating performance.  Net spread income is comprised of adjusted net interest income, less total operating expenses.  Net spread income excludes all unrealized gains or losses due to changes in fair value, realized gains or losses on sales of securities, realized losses associated with derivative instruments and income taxes. Net spread and dollar roll income includes the impact of estimated net carry income or loss (also known as "dollar roll income/loss") associated with net purchases or sales of agency mortgage backed securities on a forward-settlement basis through the TBA market.

Estimated taxable income is pre-tax income calculated in accordance with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code rather than GAAP.  Estimated taxable income differs from GAAP income because of both temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition.  Examples include (i) temporary differences for unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments and investment securities recognized in current income for GAAP but excluded from estimated taxable income until realized or settled, (ii) temporary differences related to the amortization of premiums and discounts paid on investments, and (iii) timing differences in the recognition of certain realized gains and losses.  Furthermore, taxable income can include certain estimated information and is subject to potential adjustments up to the time of filing of the appropriate tax returns, which occurs after the end of the calendar year of the Company. 

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information useful to investors because net spread income is a financial metric used by management and investors and estimated taxable income is directly related to the amount of dividends the Company is required to distribute in order to maintain its REIT tax qualification status. 

The Company also believes that providing investors with net spread income, estimated taxable income and certain financial metrics derived from such non-GAAP financial information, in addition to the related GAAP measures, gives investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. However, because net spread income and estimated taxable income are incomplete measures of the Company's financial performance and involve differences from net income computed in accordance with GAAP, they should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of net spread income and estimated taxable income may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.
