Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
Invesco Mortgage Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) is disclosing certain preliminary results of operations for the quarter ended
December 31, 2020 and as of January 31, 2021. During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, the Company largely completed its reallocation of equity to Agency residential mortgage-backed securities (“Agency RMBS”) following the market disruption associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 98% of the Company’s $8.2 billion investment portfolio was invested in Agency RMBS at year end.
Net income per common share (basic) is estimated to be in the range of $0.58 to $0.60 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020
Core earnings per common share* is estimated to be in the range of $0.09 to $0.11 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020
Book value per common share** is estimated to be in the range of $3.84 to $3.88 at December 31, 2020
Book value per common share** is estimated to be in the range of $4.00 to $4.10 at January 31, 2021
Debt-to-equity ratio*** is estimated to be 5.3x as of December 31, 2020
The above information is preliminary and subject to completion, including the completion of customary financial statement closing and review procedures for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 and the month ended January 31, 2021. As a result, the preliminary results set forth above reflect the Company’s preliminary estimate with respect to such information, based on information currently available to management, and may vary from the Company’s actual financial results as of and for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 and the month ended January 31, 2021. Further, these preliminary estimates are not a comprehensive statement or estimate of the Company’s financial results or financial condition as of and for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 and the month ended January 31, 2021. These preliminary estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and they are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved in any future period. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these preliminary estimates.
These preliminary estimates, which are the responsibility of the Company’s management, were prepared by the Company’s management and are based upon a number of assumptions. Additional items that may require adjustments to these preliminary estimates may be identified and could result in material changes to these preliminary estimates. Preliminary estimates of results are inherently uncertain and the Company undertakes no obligation to update this information. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled or performed any procedures with respect to this preliminary financial information. Accordingly, PwC does not express an opinion or provide any form of assurance with respect thereto.
Core earnings (and by calculation, core earnings per common share) are non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) financial measures. Refer to the section entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for important disclosures and a reconciliation to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
Book value per common share is calculated as total stockholders’ equity less the liquidation preference of Series A Preferred Stock ($140.0 million), Series B Preferred Stock ($155.0 million) and Series C Preferred Stock ($287.5 million); divided by total common shares outstanding of 203,222,108 as of December 31, 2020.
Debt-to-equity ratio is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and is the ratio of total repurchase agreements to total stockholders’ equity. The Company’s U.S. GAAP ratio excludes the impact of off-balance sheet financing of to-be-announced securities (“TBAs”). The Company held TBA contracts with an implied cost basis of $1.8 billion as of December 31, 2020.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In the “Preliminary Results” section above, the Company presents a preliminary estimate of its core earnings per common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. The Company cautions that core earnings per common share not be utilized in isolation, nor should it be considered as an alternative to net income per share attributable to common stockholders computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, or other measurements of results of operations computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
The Company uses the non-GAAP measure core earnings (and by calculation, core earnings per common share), to analyze the Company’s operating results and believes this financial measure is useful to investors in assessing its performance as further discussed below. The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure is net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders (and by calculation, net income (loss) per common share (basic)). The table below presents a reconciliation of the estimated U.S. GAAP net income per common share (basic) to core earnings per share attributable to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. Further information about this non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, and how management uses it, is set forth below this table.
|Three Months Ended|
December 31, 2020
Estimated net income per share attributable to common stockholders (Basic)
|$||0.58 to $0.60|
Estimated Non-U.S. GAAP Core earnings adjustments:
(Gain) loss on investments, net
Realized (gain) loss on derivative instruments, net
Unrealized (gain) loss on derivative instruments, net
TBA dollar roll income
Amortization of net deferred (gain) loss on de-designated interest rate swaps
Estimated core earnings per share attributable to common stockholders
|$||0.09 to $0.11|
The Company calculates core earnings as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders adjusted for (gain) loss on investments, net; realized (gain) loss on derivative instruments, net; unrealized (gain) loss on derivative instruments; TBA dollar roll income; (gain) loss on foreign currency transactions, net; amortization of net deferred (gain) loss on de-designated interest rate swaps; and net (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt. The Company may add and has added additional reconciling items to its core earnings calculation as appropriate.
The Company believes the presentation of core earnings provides a consistent measure of operating performance by excluding the impact of gains and losses described above from operating results. The Company excludes the impact of gains and losses because gains and losses are not accounted for consistently under U.S. GAAP. Under U.S. GAAP, certain gains and losses are reflected in net income whereas other gains and losses are reflected in other comprehensive income. For example, a portion of the Company’s mortgage-backed securities are classified as available-for-sale securities, and changes in the valuation of these securities are recorded in other comprehensive income on its consolidated balance sheet. The Company elected the fair value option for its mortgage-backed securities purchased on or after September 1, 2016, and changes in the valuation of these securities are recorded in other income (loss) in the consolidated statement of operations. In addition, certain gains and losses represent one-time events.
The Company believes that providing transparency into core earnings enables its investors to consistently measure, evaluate and compare its operating performance to that of its peers over multiple reporting periods. However, the Company cautions that core earnings should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP), or as an indication of the Company’s cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP), a measure of the Company’s liquidity, or an indication of amounts available to fund its cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions.
