Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the "Company") announced today exceptional third quarter earnings and dramatic growth in loan originations, revenue and adjusted net income that reflect the growth of Walker & Dunlop and the successful acquisition of CWCapital. Revenues for the third quarter totaled $70.1 million, an increase of 110% from $33.4 million in the third quarter 2011.  The increase in revenues was driven by a 141% increase in loan originations and a 52% increase in servicing fee income. Adjusted net income, which excludes selected expenses1 relating to the acquisition of CWCapital, increased 135% to $14.3 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, from $6.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2011.  GAAP net income for the third quarter 2012 improved 17% from the third quarter 2011 to $7.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share.

"Seventy-five years ago today, Walker & Dunlop was founded by my grandfather and great uncle.  It is a true thrill to be announcing fantastic third quarter results that reflect our firm's market position and dramatic growth on this monumental anniversary," stated Willy Walker, Walker & Dunlop's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Walker & Dunlop is now one of the largest commercial real estate finance companies in the United States. The combination of our vastly expanded origination network, along with our growing servicing portfolio, provides Walker & Dunlop with the market presence and financial wherewithal to achieve our goal of becoming the premier commercial real estate finance company in the United States."

"The acquisition of CWCapital in September is yet another transformative strategic move for our company. Although the third quarter results reflect only one month of the combined entity's financial performance, the impact from CWCapital has been immediate and profound. We worked tirelessly throughout the summer to begin integrating the two firms, and although not complete, we are well on our way to bringing these two great firms together in a rapid and effective manner."

"Our third quarter financial performance shows that we are executing on our strategic business plan exceptionally well. We continue to gain scale and market share in our core commercial loan origination business, with loan originations up 141% over the third quarter 2011. Our servicing portfolio has also grown dramatically, now totaling $33.9 billion, up 113% from the third quarter 2011. The growth in originations and servicing income produced a 110% increase in revenues resulting in 135% growth in adjusted net income over the third quarter 2011."

"After Tuesday's election, the debate over the future of the GSEs begins again, with a re-elected but new Obama Administration, Treasury Department, Congress, and Senate. We expect GSE reform to be a hot topic of debate, and are hopeful a clear path forward for the GSEs is established during the next Congress. What the election did not change is the significant demand for capital to refinance the trillions of dollars of commercial real estate loans that mature between now and 2018. Walker & Dunlop expects to originate between $6.7 billion and $7.4 billion of commercial mortgages in 2012 and between $8 billion and $10 billion of commercial mortgages in 2013, making us one of the largest commercial mortgage lenders in the country.  We will use this market position, access to deal flow, and financial expertise to meet the needs of our customers and capitalize on the massive refinancing market opportunity."

OPERATING RESULTS

LOAN ORIGINATIONS for the third quarter 2012 increased $1.3 billion, or 141%, to $2.2 billion when compared to the third quarter 2011. During the month of September, the newly integrated CWCapital platform contributed approximately $1.0 billion to our third quarter loan originations.   On a standalone basis, Walker & Dunlop's loan originations grew by $247.0 million, or 27%, over the third quarter 2011.

GAINS FROM MORTGAGE BANKING ACTIVITIES were $53.4 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $21.6 million for the third quarter 2011, a 148% increase.  Gains from mortgage banking activities are the revenues recognized through the loan origination and sale process ("loan origination fees"), and gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights ("MSRs").  LOAN ORIGINATION FEES were $27.7 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $9.7 million for the third quarter 2011, a 187% increase.  MSRs were $25.7 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $11.9 million for the third quarter 2011, a 116% increase. Gains from mortgage banking activities as a percentage of loan originations were 245 basis points for the third quarter 2012, compared to 238 basis points in the third quarter 2011, a 3% increase, primarily due to the increase in average loan origination fees.

TOTAL EXPENSES were $58.3 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $23.7 million for the third quarter 2011, an increase of $34.6 million, or 146%.  Personnel expense increased $20.8 million due to commission costs associated with the higher volume of loan originations, new salaries due to the growth of the Company, and the acquisition of CWCapital which included severance expense of $1.1 million.  Total expenses for the third quarter 2012 include $11.7 million of selected expenses attributable to the acquisition of CWCapital, comprised of $7.4 million in amortization of the loan origination pipeline acquired, $2.3 million in legal and banking fees, $1.0 million for transition services paid to the seller, and the aforementioned severance costs. Adjusted total expenses, which excludes selected expenses, were $46.6 million for the third quarter 2012, an increase of 97% from the third quarter of 2011.

ADJUSTED INCOME FROM OPERATIONS, which excludes selected expenses, was $23.5 million for the third quarter 2012, an increase of 144% over the third quarter 2011, resulting in a 34% ADJUSTED OPERATING MARGIN compared to 29% for the same period last year.  GAAP income from operations was $11.8 million for the third quarter 2012, an increase of 22% over the third quarter 2011, resulting in a GAAP operating margin of 17% compared to 29% for the same period last year.

SERVICING PORTFOLIO

The SERVICING PORTFOLIO totaled $33.9 billion at September 30, 2012, a 113% increase from $15.9 billion at September 30, 2011. Walker & Dunlop acquired the right to service $14.5 billion of mortgage loans from CWCapital, with an estimated acquisition date fair value of $130.5 million.

SERVICING FEES were $13.3 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $8.8 million for the third quarter 2011, a 52% increase.  The increase in servicing fees was due to the organic growth of the servicing portfolio over the past year, as well as one month of servicing fees from the portfolio acquired from CWCapital.

The WEIGHTED AVERAGE SERVICING FEE was 23 basis points at September 30, 2012, compared to 22 basis points at September 30, 2011.

CREDIT QUALITY AND RISK-SHARING OBLIGATIONS

The Company's AT RISK SERVICING PORTFOLIO, which is comprised of loans subject to a defined risk-sharing formula, was $12.9 billion at September 30, 2012, compared to $7.2 billion at September 30, 2011, a 79% increase. 

60+ DAY DELINQUENCIES were $19.1 million, or 0.15% of the at risk servicing portfolio, at September 30, 2012.  No loans in the at risk servicing portfolio were 60+ days delinquent at September 30, 2011. 

PROVISION FOR RISK-SHARING OBLIGATIONS for the third quarter 2012 was a recovery of $(0.8) million compared to a charge of $0.9 million in the third quarter 2011, a $1.8 million or 191% decrease. During the third quarter 2012, a previously recognized loss was reversed due to a property being sold at a greater value than anticipated.

The Company had no NET WRITE-OFFS in the third quarter 2012, compared to $0.7 million or 0.01% of the Company's at risk portfolio in the third quarter 2011.  Write-offs represent the cash settlement of provisions for losses recognized in prior periods.

Credit quality within the Company's at risk portfolio remains very strong following the acquisition of CWCapital.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS

Due to the CWCapital acquisition, year-to-date results include eight months of standalone Walker & Dunlop earnings and one month of the combined enterprise. Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $151.2 million compared to $104.8 million for the same period last year, a 44% increase.  The increase in total revenues was largely driven by a 54% increase in loan originations, from $2.7 billion to $4.2 billion, and a 113% increase in the aggregate servicing portfolio, from $15.9 billion to $33.9 billion, since September 30, 2011.

Adjusted total expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, which excludes selected expenses, were $102.1 million, compared to $66.0 million for the same period last year, a 55% increase. Total GAAP expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $114.9 million, a 74% increase over the same period last year.  Personnel expense as a percentage of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was 40%, compared to 32% for the same period last year.

Adjusted net income, which excludes selected expenses, increased 26% to $30.0 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $23.8 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. GAAP net income decreased 7% to $22.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, or $0.96 per diluted share. Adjusted operating margin, which excludes selected expenses, was 32% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 37% for the same period last year.  Our GAAP operating margin was 24% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 37% for the same period last year.

1 Selected expenses include acquisition and integration costs related specifically to the CWCapital acquisition, and amortization of customer contracts acquired from CWCapital.  For details of these selected expenses, and a reconciliation of adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted total expenses, adjusted income from operations, and adjusted operating margin, see "Adjusted Financial Metrics Reconciliation to GAAP" and "Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial statements presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company presents the following non-GAAP financial measures, each of which excludes selected expenses related to the CWCapital acquisition:  adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted total expenses, adjusted income from operations and adjusted operating margin.

These supplemental measures exclude acquisition and integration costs specifically related to the CWCapital acquisition, and amortization of customer contracts and other intangible assets acquired from CWCapital.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures facilitate a review of the comparability of the Company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such costs are not, in our view, related to the Company's ongoing operational performance. We use these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and for benchmarking performance externally against competitors. Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that investors benefit from seeing results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's on-going operating results;
  • the ability to better identify trends in the Company's underlying business and perform related trend analyses; and
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company's underlying business.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, refer to the section of this press release titled "Adjusted Financial Metrics Reconciliation to GAAP."

(1) At risk servicing portfolio is defined as the balance of Fannie Mae DUS loans subject to the risk-sharing formula described below, as well as a small number of Freddie Mac and GNMA/HUD loans on which we share in the risk of loss. Use of the at risk portfolio provides for comparability of the full risk-sharing and modified risk-sharing loans because the provision and allowance for risk-sharing obligations are based on the at risk balances of the associated loans. Accordingly, we have presented the key statistics as a percentage of the at risk portfolio.

 

For example, a $15 million loan with 50% risk-sharing has the same potential risk exposure as a $7.5 million loan with full DUS risk-sharing. Accordingly, if the $15 million loan with 50% risk-sharing was to default, the Company would view the overall loss as a percentage of the at risk balance, or $7.5 million, to ensure comparability between all risk-sharing obligations. To date, all of the Company's risk-sharing obligations that we have settled have been from full risk-sharing loans.

 

(2) There are loans within our servicing portfolio which are greater than 60 days delinquent, for which no allowance has been recorded. We do not anticipate recognizing a loss for these loans upon settlement of our risk-sharing obligation with Fannie Mae because our estimate of the value of the underlying collateral is greater than the unpaid principal balance of the associated loan.
