[Operator Instructions].

first question comes with from KBW. Rahmani Our Jade today

Ryan Tomasello

This Ryan for Jade. is actually on

with Just set current us the appropriate And commentary for the you provide XQ the with IRR, recent starting off, ongoing how the environment, coupled achievable will is on if basis? returns very think if cited was rate go-forward to you that low markets. I but dividend are? be spread strong, level where lending you the IRRs was on if incremental the hoping clearly, can future these feel thinking you're on a double-digit about you just an and originations in level cuts wondering compression some potential And

Matthew Salem

question. quarter. Matt. And we're Ryan, those couple did the I'll this cover Obviously, we very It's -- focused covering thanks to as the try for questions. on a I'll cover of dividend.

it If from bit does benefit a of portfolio, that. so little you forward look there'll positive be rate from curves, some floors, at the a impact the thinking LIBOR about if you're existing impact, some

income, of and sustainability lot we're going will factors we of to to the the I factors, see it that Board, conditions taxable with think and other and financial depend a on it's what have our different earnings. discussion a have ultimately,

And of factors can control those we and we some some can't.

can control we're And rate a it's control. I KREF I'd hope profile risk that curve. can on And competitors that as we what are. say evident we're of what than we forward really positioning good our different the is a focused example

portfolio. sponsorship, created -- think institutional through we've and If types defensive you volatility and look of lower to at quality, we asset property kind our the high-quality a top within business of level we plan transition, markets, each that look underwrite which

we you thing going credit risk curve. And one are we're not the that's to to go going the change not will. going if So our out not to We're change. DNA, --

I financed a when basis. of and will almost best-in-class So which three -- and an be yield at portfolio right, is -- earnings what quarters, non-mark-to-market it of think cost the majority -- yields the output of high-quality our capital, which when it's is on today

So about we're that's now. thinking kind of right it how

last, in so. As I mentioned portfolio or LIBOR has call before, the months XX been the originated it

have near-term so in floors form some protections And the LIBOR prepayment of penalties. we and

Ryan Tomasello

that unlock the in Yes, that's Great. give as Do to drove just moving lending on just helpful. really color into you you And us over saw to IRR view sale. on really book? more what CMBS you for capital the the legacy way based a strong then very bit execute to reinvestment core decision Can a that? that

Patrick Mattson

that Ryan, it's I'll Patrick. take one.

year the at we pretty sold of our sale. in last second quarter, through nice majority less pretty here, recall, which advantage residual value. gain robust a you point and had totaled and took than CMBS portfolio some as million positions in $XX market that a the So recognized of that We

CMBS of the side. sort about our quarter the that this balance of that. of for billion, of we is extension, gross we a up liability value kind sale that $XX view And by this clean-up on $X and a in of sheet so resulted both asset side did And million

able at to So XX% that we through positions. to loan this point, effectively And were we continue sale. senior this be deconsolidate

Ryan Tomasello

Matthew Salem

that. Ryan, it's Matt. I'll take I guess

market an on a we And it about This what's supplement we available It's basis, cash. ROE to about to time. on be ROE We're more thinking today yield I there's as it's is of we -- about that get going a in on create we fully not and don't otherwise at perspective, can It's to think which, I that get little set the different we ratings fully get a target. think on lending really the from depend will buy, have It bit portfolio. range -- yield a incremental about levered ROE. our can way the return the -- a really management. cash trying loan replacing than would about our not it's replacing in core create really business. can

us that's available earnings be to think we against -- a little leverage us see you'll what's the put -- in we From in to that so how us -- available incremental amount of we'll bit about kind it in think what's just can portfolio. the you I of from the relatively terms financing versus And conservative of a market. see perspective,


comes question from JMP Steve Delaney Securities. with next The

Steven Delaney

like it huge The you the deal after in quarter. money have here first you. really the to had to amount you back true with third in power Matt, guys like coming Obviously, your to has that earnings start repayments of in seems deployment I'd allowed really with quarter. show settled

expect around could at quarter and the for range percentage ballpark would in And XXXX? Looking can the was like, $X.X the a make, the the low of range, gave and year's if that a off somewhere you portfolio year-end. pretty you high of you when in, probably paid first for just some When think principal a second you half seems seasoning, year, us about curious repayments of, like shot year. this color year-end ahead, of loans there you what at some you at and on look billion a of sort in a to It trigger come repayments? quick next average

Matthew Salem

relates I I think a as has transitional mean, think, risk either Sure. the the a on the we which, positive would focused lease-up duration Very we repayments, lighter amount I about say. it is of are stabilization, renovation to uncertainty it a lending, to future predict difficult from as it happen. shorter to to relates is, less that the way just perspective, to or

we so And that's positive. a think

potential heavier, One construction, the cetera. loans renovation negative et more that stabilize is is something of for compared less have little that that slightly the because expect the bit you of those bit a to duration little we quickly as would that's or a to

think have I loans that. we've slightly way seen the than and in think I year could some, on you our is so and shorter duration outside, obviously, a the about -- And come three

very I or a modeling very, perspective think something divide factor from closely, of it to So a our by we're would from less perspective. slightly my make balance but just monitoring sense three

Steven Delaney

realized that. That appreciate eyeballs. And I pretty question I you. Congrats Chris, stayed the this you to the of appear And inclusion, helps on that. had it. that out year have be shifting of frame over book I half is, bring the trading SmallCap deployment S&P to over certainly much guys with to in do capital guess the first your certainly now. shares us to market. But something

August apple, a of taken speak, so haven't You to since of the XXXX. bite

or of you the you're speaking the question stock right because big all a consider X of deal are a to you're aspects and frequent piece for trading your that because So bar doing How more doing market to million things? for sort liquidities, to the you visibility, this day. of do is, the with is about need high high valuation technical guys market cap guys follow-ons X to fundamentally, -- how million --

Christen Lee

we the the I very talking we're even IPO our earnings share doing that be strategy will coverage post-IPO proceeds. a very per to bit mean, I dividend lot. with share, the we're our that view think end capital a prudent been there all we markets. per immediate about prior is very now and our sure think has things. We're is And extent about are of about day, But we accessing stock use making adding the -- and earlier that an consistent we sometimes how to on right at frustrated little we something of is of It's kind focused and Yes. think are think about capital the we only price.

have capital short on So we I think us to in the that's available balance term, sheet.

Matt are the -- the good window in a least in at mentioned, near repayments looking pretty have into like As what we the term.

like to plenty capital we we feel judicious. So of we have be but will our fund pipeline, very

course, thoughtful know a pretty metrics. our you with business Of and capital but the all and per we the focus at about other bring earnings share disposal the have ATM how share we on be we'll count avenues in increase

a real in portfolio U.S. the As we structure where of much assets large you know, invest the broader and we have a capital estate own business across

interesting, also the net have yielding given We and a late. seen on that cash targeting of and from been a not a we've basis been anything overly as yields basis. gross It's

the focused the very evaluating the So right yields But risk the returns similar on that now, different transitional are lending strategy, that taking. in given justified create we're return the risk by to seeing the always that extent ways we're market. we're we're to

So have our when of we we about I debt repayment think outstanding. different is several Certainly, repayments, one think options. that's a

more types some optimal of it's non-mark-to-market we or our For the really that's in not necessarily place, CLO And whether facilities way. other term, financing, that's applicable. of not structures, get as

opportunity we getting invest we at an bridge we're we capital. that trying or the then then as time. to originate a deploy on it So short-term and to period cash, when manage we over timing that a And can we're asset, basis, -- that short a get look to if re-originate of sort can to of

Ryan Tomasello

Ryan again.

$XXX of Just repayments on of in north up first, guess, loans the on commentary the around fourth millions would for based closed the pipeline match half, didn't your so or million you mentioned $XXX second that I the repayments XQ. repayments imply And believe the following quarter. of I in or post commentary, somewhere

you might CMBS to of some quarter? So timing level enable as quarter to do in I Or you strategy see EPS expect cash new guess, you headwind into do that the this kind manage you that XQ's going the that gap? fourth fourth manage blips temporary management think

Matthew Salem

Ryan, it's Matt. I'll take that again.

that I X funding I'll net from perspective, a think make comments.

add we few On think have the fourth still we to to side, the origination quarter potentially pipeline. a weeks

that, and up. variable the and obviously, is that's So can numbers change go

side, exactly On And estimating, slip. of pushed seen things never it's the that's repayment clear. things kind what get We've we're can out.

anything, of using market So if new will that some of estimate. be that place. if funding, terms that help in an And we in net a had cash negative drag to clearly, program liquid that's kind then offset of

things drive earnings. I fourth think the that's will a combination quarter of those obviously

Ryan Tomasello

inventory And recently. that IRRs, talk incremental if conserved the your more of of originations, follow-up if on I then pipeline a the on get quarter? condo on And then we views yields, terms condo can us in of property-type geography? as kind those we second some competitors in are wondering market you And loans. what can of questions market. give guess, heard saw with other some I the earlier color about on We've was to what that on is comprised

get your that's still particularly to past, wanted thoughts are loans Just condo deployment done we've York? the if -- in in New an inventory opportunity, attractive as

Matthew Salem

property it what doing. Got pretty And we've and turn it's what's the to multifamily been types. that we've part of looks it to discuss Chris it. identified office all over and in Maybe then in right the first of and pipeline, But terms similar now, just what kind -- can take market. all I'll he is

middle Again, multifamily focused point. on right the well-leased been. through this the sectors We've we've lease-up are say, small down a stories been of side that innovation that it's small at So in similar assets their office transitional then a of way I'd lighter and the side. going on

Christen Lee


inventory we it's would that capable that have yield not condo who that. an well on. focused the of area We providers say market, extremely developers. On given for for that's extremely and they're overly we're opportunistic I definitely liquidity an that financing that utilized of in top-tier really still loans, capitalized, really that there is is us for are sponsors, think bucket there's

market said, incredibly have focused but something that on, Matt it. it's still like does that So not we're liquidity in


The question with from Morgan. JP next comes Shane Rich

Richard Shane

we we're we in coupon spread when a apologize, around on anticipate am to on is to bit think as repetitive, continue rates. things as that know opportunity the this they we to apologize. also There basis. bit, I ROE basis, power. better so to much I was beta were curious little a little all-in recapture think people you scrambling curious rates about following And but about pricing current with very decline, on them rates of decline, going start environment, if to right? if a think that you if know rising. Again, saw a higher I basis be rates an there's And I'm an that low

Matthew Salem


think answer it to I is, the seen. be remains

relatively rise, have As spread there's saw floor seen What coupons we that the market. the compression, rate forward as mentioned, been remain we consistent expectations we've is LIBOR with similar changed and obviously.

relatively stable forward all versus around LIBOR. So in have expectations coupons been

that widening, could Now for remains see a if I market. the you that LIBOR floor spread think question dynamic changes, that's

Richard Shane

there percentage of Presumably, we is obviously, And see that negotiating as rates move, it. LIBOR floors. X% high or better there? ticking loans is Got the down with some power

Patrick Mattson

was with originate at Yes, sit difficult to as as spot a adjust. now we some is I gap, And the starting bigger the gap when there you've certainly, even least rising seen Patrick. were LIBOR LIBOR market. the That we're are. start compression where spot X% very see where the and are at that's the what we market LIBOR what floors And spot and you floors see floors much floor. to the market a moment. reflective decline, of that the in loans. between it's today, now And think that At seeing is meaning we're think to in get market at to closer rate said, what the I if time Rick, they was those X.XX%, as that are the the rates X%
