05 Nov, 2015, 06:45 ET from Starwood Property Trust, Inc.

GREENWICH, Conn., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: STWD) today announced operating results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2015.  The Company's third quarter 2015 Core Earnings (a non-GAAP financial measure) were $135.4 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, an increase of 8% from the $125.9 million, or $0.53 per diluted share reported for the second quarter of 2015.  GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2015 was $116.7 million, or $0.49 per diluted share.

"The debt markets were turbulent in the quarter as the supply-demand imbalance in the high yield market spilled into the CMBS universe. Recognizing this downward momentum and that our opportunity set was improving each week, we were exceedingly careful in our loan commitments. While our Lending Segment stepped back momentarily, our Investing and Servicing Segment took advantage of its unique capabilities and invested in several high yielding opportunities. We also made a major equity investment, closing on the initial assets of an affordable multi-family housing portfolio, which should produce low double digit cash yields financed with 18-year fixed rate debt. The Company's loan-to-value ratio of 62% and its leverage level of 1.2x debt-to-equity reflect our conservative nature and our commitment to credit quality. Our continued performance is a testament to the synergies we achieve through our relationship with Starwood Capital Group and the multi-cylinder business platform we have built and is consistent with our core strategy of delivering a safe and predictable dividend accompanied by best-in-class transparency," stated Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Starwood Property Trust.

Mr. Sternlicht continued, "We are differentiated by a seasoned portfolio that enables us to recycle capital in order to take advantage of market dislocations and reinvest in opportunities that generate attractive yields. Our diversified investment focus, coupled with our global expertise across the real estate equity and debt markets, has allowed us to remain invested throughout varying market conditions. However, we will continue to exercise patience as we evaluate the investing landscape and preserve our financial capacity only for the highest quality and best risk-adjusted investments."

Real Estate Property Segment

During the third quarter of 2015, the Property Segment contributed Core Earnings(9) of $6.2 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.  GAAP earnings during the third quarter of 2015 were $1.2 million.

Subsequent to July 1, 2015, the Company entered into definitive agreements to acquire 30 affordable housing communities located throughout Florida for an aggregate acquisition price of $553.2 million.  The acquisition will be funded with a combination of existing cash on hand and debt, including third party debt and the assumption of pre-existing federal, state and county sponsored financing. This portfolio is 98% occupied and is comprised of 8,320 units concentrated primarily in the Tampa, Orlando and West Palm Beach metropolitan areas.  The transaction is expected to close in phases, the first of which closed on October 20, 2015 for $143.2 million and is comprised of seven properties.

Also during the quarter, the Property Segment completed its acquisition of the Ireland portfolio by purchasing the remaining asset, a fully occupied, net leased office property located in Dublin, for approximately $121.9 million

Financing Activities

As of September 30, 2015, the Company had an aggregate outstanding debt balance of $5.1 billion and maximum borrowing capacity of $7.7 billion under its 18 financing facilities and three convertible senior notes, with a debt-to-equity ratio of 1.2x. 

During the third quarter, the Company:

  • Attained membership in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines with a maximum borrowing capacity of $1.0 billion.
  • Amended its largest repurchase facility to upsize available borrowings from $1.25 billion to $1.6 billion.
  • Amended an existing revolving repurchase facility to (i) permanently upsize available borrowings from $250.0 million to $450.0 million; (ii) extend the maturity date to July 2019 assuming exercise of a one-year extension option; (iii) reduce pricing; (iv) unencumber up to $728.4 million of assets; and (v) provide the Company an option to further upsize available borrowings from $450.0 million to $650.0 million subject to certain conditions.
  • Repurchased 1.4 million shares of common stock at an average price of $20.86 for $29.1 million.

Subsequent to quarter end, in October 2015, the Company amended an existing revolving repurchase facility to upsize available borrowings from $325.0 million to $500.0 million and extend the maturity from October 2018 to October 2020, assuming exercise of available extension options.

Interest Rate Sensitivity

The Company should benefit from a rising rate environment, particularly given its high volume of LIBOR-based floating rate loans.  As of September 30, 2015, 82% of the Lending Segment's existing loan portfolio and 100% of its current loan pipeline is indexed to LIBOR. In addition, 82% of the floating rate portfolio benefits from having a LIBOR floor at an average rate of 0.31%.  For the 18% of the portfolio that is fixed rate, the weighted average coupon is 7.8%.  The Company realizes an additional benefit from its fixed rate convertible senior notes, which help limit exposure to rising rates.

The following table summarizes the impact to annual net income from a specified hypothetical change in LIBOR:

Investment Capacity

As of November 2, 2015, the Company has the capacity to acquire or originate up to $2.7 billion of new investments through (i) $366.9 million of expected fourth quarter maturities, prepayments, sales and participations; (ii) $1.9 billion of unallocated warehouse capacity; (iii) $229.5 million of approved but undrawn capacity under existing financing facilities; (iv) $331.4 million of available cash and equivalents and (v) approximately $73.2 million of net equity invested in RMBS that are classified as available-for-sale.

Dividend

On November 5, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.48 per share of common stock for the quarter ending December 31, 2015. The dividend is payable on January 15, 2016 to common shareholders of record as of December 31, 2015. 

2015 Guidance

For 2015, the Company is refining its Core Earnings guidance to a range of $2.13 to $2.17 per diluted share.  This guidance reflects the Company's estimates on the (i) yield on existing investments; (ii) yield on incremental investments inclusive of the Company's existing pipeline; (iii) amount and timing of debt and equity capital deployment to fund new investments; (iv) costs of additional debt and equity capital to fund new investments; (v) pace of amortization of the servicing intangible based on the amount and timing of servicing fees on existing contracts; (vi) taxation associated with the TRSs, particularly the Investing and Servicing TRSs, which house this segment's servicing and conduit loan operations, both of which generate significant taxable income; and (vii) changes in costs and expenses reflective of the Company's forecasted operations.  This guidance does not reflect any impact that may result from repurchases of equity or convertible debt securities pursuant to the Company's existing repurchase program.  All guidance is based on current expectations of future economic conditions, the dynamics of the commercial real estate markets in which it operates and the judgment of the Company's management team.

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this press release which are not historical fact may be deemed forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Although Starwood Property Trust, Inc. believes the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained.   Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's expectations include completion of pending investments, continued ability to acquire additional investments, competition within the finance and real estate industries, economic conditions, availability of financing and other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's reports filed with the SEC.

Footnotes

 

(1)

The difference between the Carry Value and Face Amount of the loans held for investment consists of unamortized purchase discount, deferred loan fees and loan origination costs. The difference between the Carry Value and Face Amount of the available-for-sale securities consists of the unrealized gains/(losses) on the fair value of the securities and unamortized purchase discount.

(2)

Current financings are either floating rate or swapped to fixed rate to match the interest rate characteristics of the underlying asset.

(3)

The current leveraged return represents the compounded effective rate of return earned over the life of the investment based on existing leverage levels as of September 30, 2015, and calculated on a weighted average basis.  Leveraged returns include the loan coupon, amortization of premium or discount, and the effects of costs and fees, all recognized on the effective interest method. Leveraged returns are presented solely for informational purposes and will not equal income recognized in prior or future periods due mainly to the fact that (i) interest earned on the Company's floating rate loans will change in the future when interest rates change, and these leveraged returns assume interest rates remain at current levels and (ii) the leveraged returns assume that the leverage levels existing at September 30, 2015 will be maintained either throughout the remaining term of the applicable credit facilities or the remaining term of the investment, if shorter.  However, leverage levels in future periods will likely fluctuate as the Company manages its day-to-day liquidity.

(4)

The optimal asset-level return assumes (i) maximum available leverage in place or in negotiation for each asset, notwithstanding the amount actually borrowed, and (ii) full syndication of the first mortgage when syndication is deemed probable.

(5)

First mortgages include first mortgage loans and any contiguous mezzanine loan components because as a whole, the expected credit quality of these loans is more similar to that of a first mortgage loan.  The application of this methodology resulted in mezzanine loans with carrying values of $892.3 million being classified as first mortgages as of September 30, 2015.

(6)

Underlying property values are determined by the Company's management based on its ongoing asset assessments, and loan balances that are the face value of a loan regardless of whether the Company has purchased the loan at a discount or premium to par. Assets characterized as first mortgages include all loan components where the Company owns the senior most interest in the loan, which may include subordinated mortgages and/or mezzanine loans.  Assets characterized as subordinated mortgages are the subordinated components of first mortgages where the Company does not own the senior most interest in the loan. Assets characterized as mezzanine loans are mezzanine loans where the Company does not own the senior most interest in the loan. For any loans collateralized by ground-up construction projects without significant leasing or units with executed sales contracts, the fully funded loan balance is included in the numerator and the fully budgeted construction cost, including costs of acquisition of the property, is included in the denominator. For ground up construction loans which have significant leasing or units under contract for sale, the fully funded loan balance is included in the numerator with an estimate of the stabilized value upon completion of construction included in the denominator.  Includes loans held for investment and preferred equity.

(7)

Represents the Company's entire investment, which includes all components of the capital stack that it owns (i.e., first mortgages, subordinated mortgages, mezzanine loans and preferred equity).

(8)

Face amount is $4.5 billion. Differences between face amount and carry value are principally attributable to purchase discounts and changes in fair value.

(9)

Effective July 1, 2015, the Company modified the definition of Core Earnings to exclude acquisition costs incurred for successful acquisitions.  Such costs are capitalized and amortized over the associated property's estimated useful life.

(10)

Includes net operating income for the current quarter, which includes net operating income subsequent to the July 24, 2015 acquisition date for the Ireland portfolio property acquired during the quarter.

(11)

Net carrying value includes all components of the related asset, including properties and intangibles.

(12)

Represents the Company's earnings from unconsolidated entities attributable to the Company's investment in the mall portfolio acquired in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Definition of Core Earnings

Core Earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, is used to compute the Company's incentive fees to its external manager and is an appropriate supplemental disclosure for a mortgage REIT.  For the Company's purposes, Core Earnings is defined as GAAP net income (loss) excluding non-cash equity compensation expense, the incentive fee due to the Company's external manager, acquisition costs from successful acquisitions, depreciation and amortization of real estate, any unrealized gains, losses or other non-cash items recorded in net income for the period, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income or loss, or in net income. The amount is adjusted to exclude one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and certain other non-cash adjustments as determined by the Company's external manager and approved by a majority of the Company's independent directors.
