ZAIS Group Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Aug 06, 2015, 08:00 ET from ZAIS Group Holdings, Inc.

RED BANK, N.J., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ZAIS Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZAIS) ("ZAIS"), today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015.  ZAIS conducts substantially all of its operations through ZAIS Group, LLC ("ZAIS Group"). References to the "Company" herein refer to ZAIS, together with its consolidated subsidiaries and affiliates.

Michael F. Szymanski, Chief  Executive Officer, said, "We continue to execute upon our business plan and are actively pursuing several significant initiatives aimed at growing our residential mortgage and corporate loan businesses focusing on new originations.  During this initial growth phase we remain diligently focused on positioning the Company for profitability and enhanced shareholder value, and we anticipate deploying a substantial amount of the capital raised in the business combination that closed on March 17, 2015 by early fourth quarter of this year.  The new risk retention rules in the U.S. and Europe will require capital solutions on behalf of investment managers, and we are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with one of our long-standing clients to form such a vehicle. We remain confident that the opportunities available to us will produce growth for the Company and allow us to offer investors in ZAIS Group's managed investment vehicles products we could not otherwise offer."

CONSOLIDATED GAAP RESULTS

The Company recorded GAAP net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015 of ($3.5) million compared with GAAP net income of $32.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  GAAP net income (loss) includes results of certain investment vehicles managed by ZAIS Group that are required to be consolidated under GAAP (the "Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group").  The Company recorded pre-tax GAAP net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015 of ($5.2) million compared with pre-tax GAAP net income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of $32.5 million.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had not deployed the proceeds from the business combination and consequently, the Company's results for this quarterly period may not be representative of future financial results once the proceeds from the business combination are fully deployed.

ZAIS Group Parent, LLC ("ZGP"), a majority-owned consolidated subsidiary of ZAIS, is the sole member and owns all of the equity of ZAIS Group. The consolidated financial statements include non-controlling interests of the members of ZGP other than ZAIS (the "ZGP Founder Members") which represent Class A Units of ZGP held by the ZGP Founder Members.

CONSOLIDATED NON-GAAP RESULTS

The Company recorded a net loss (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group) for the three months ended June 30, 2015 of ($5.2) million, or ($0.25) per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding compared with net income (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group) of $21.9 million, or $3.12 per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The number of shares of common stock that was used to calculate ZAIS's earnings per share for all periods prior to the business combination was 7,000,000, representing the interests of the ZGP Founder Members. The year-over-year decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in management fee income and incentive income of $2.2 million and $35.3 million, respectively, partially offset by a decrease in expenses related to compensation of $10.8 million, primarily related to bonuses associated with investment performance in the prior year. The decrease in incentive fees is due primarily to the end of the investment period of a particular fund where the incentive fees are recognized once the final investment performance is determined. 

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported negative Distributable Earnings of ($3.3) million, or ($0.16) per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding compared with Distributable Earnings of $15.7 million, or $2.24 per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2014. 

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported negative Adjusted EBITDA of ($4.8) million, or ($0.23) per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $15.5 million, or $2.22 per diluted weighted average Class A common share outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2014. 

Additionally, the Company had $13.3 million in gross undistributed, unrecognized incentive fee income across investment vehicles managed by ZAIS Group as of June 30, 2015. This income has not been recognized in net income (loss) under GAAP or other Non-GAAP measures of income (loss) and remains at risk and subject to reduction or elimination based on the investment performance of the related ZAIS managed investment vehicle until the contractual measurement period for incentive fees is reached.   

Please see the discussion of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures", including the definitions of net income (loss) (excluding Consolidating Funds of ZAIS Group), Distributable Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA, and reconciliations of such Non-GAAP financial measures to the respective GAAP net income (loss) and pre-tax GAAP net income (loss) measures for the periods discussed above at the end of this press release.

The Company's GAAP net income (loss) and other Non-GAAP measures of income (loss) may fluctuate materially depending upon the performance of investment vehicles managed by ZAIS Group as well as other factors. Accordingly, the GAAP net income (loss) and other Non-GAAP measures of income (loss) in any particular period should not be expected to be indicative of future results.

LIQUIDITY & CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $75.2 million and debt obligations of $1.3 million.

SECOND QUARTER 2015 SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

The Company's Second Quarter 2015 Supplemental Information – June 30, 2015, is available on ZAIS's website at www.zaisgroupholdings.com. To access the presentation, go to the "ZAIS Shareholders" section of the website.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial information, including net income (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group), Distributable Earnings (and per share measures) and Adjusted EBITDA (and per share measures).  Net income (loss) (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group) is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as GAAP net income (loss) excluding the consolidating effects of the Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group.  Distributable Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as GAAP net income (loss), excluding consolidating effects of Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group, net unrealized gain (loss) on investments, compensation expense related to a portion of net operating income of ZAIS Group due to certain employees of ZAIS Group, compensation expense related to incentive income in the form of percentage interests recorded before related incentive income being recognized, equity-based compensation and certain other non-cash and non-operating items. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as Distributable Earnings excluding any applicable taxes, interest expense and depreciation and amortization expenses.

The Company believes that providing investors with this 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 income (loss) (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group), Distributable Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA are incomplete measures of the Company's financial performance and involve differences from net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, they should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, the Company's net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of net income (loss) (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group), Distributable Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.

The following table presents the reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net income (loss) to its non-GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) (excluding Consolidated Funds of ZAIS Group) for the periods presented in this Earnings Release.
