MuniMae Announces 2012 Results

BALTIMORE, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Municipal Mortgage & Equity, LLC (OTC: MMAB) ("MuniMae" or "the Company,") filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 (the "2012 Annual Report") with the SEC on March 26, 2013. 

The Company reported that comprehensive income allocable to common shareholders, which includes both net income and total other comprehensive income, was $37.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $39.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, there was no longer substantial doubt regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  This assessment was supported by cash flow projections indicating the Company's expected ability to meet its obligations as they become due.  However, these projections reflected management's expectations and are not guarantees of future performance.  As disclosed in the Company's prior annual reports and in its 2012 Annual Report, there are many risk factors, including in particular interest rate risk, which could negatively impact the Company's financial condition and operating results, in some cases, significantly.

Michael Falcone, MuniMae's Chief Executive Officer and President stated, "Our business was severely affected by the financial crisis, but we have been able to stabilize the Company through a combination of actions taken over the course of the past several years including business unit sales, cost reductions, and multiple debt restructurings.  Now we look forward to an opportunity to create additional shareholder value.  Today's announcements are the first steps in that journey."   

The Company's bond portfolio increased in value by $34.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2012 and $33.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2011.  These unrealized gains are recognized through a combination of net income and total other comprehensive income.  Common equity was $44.9 million at December 31, 2012, representing an increase of $40.1 million from reported common equity of $4.8 million at December 31, 2011.  Based on shares issued and outstanding and including employee and Director deferred shares issued at each year-end, the Company's common book value per share at December 31, 2012 was $1.06, compared to a common book value per share at December 31, 2011 of $0.11.  Additional financial details are incorporated in the table below.
