CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, Aug. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Front Yard Residential Corporation (“Front Yard” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RESI) today announced its financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Entered into a new asset management agreement with Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC”) on May 7, 2019, providing an improved fee structure that further aligns interests and incentivizes performance and growth.
  • Established a Board Strategic Review Committee to explore strategic alternatives for the company.
  • Increased revenues by 26% to $51.6 million compared to the second quarter of 2018.
  • Core Funds from Operations per diluted share was $0.05 for the second quarter of 2019.1
  • Stabilized Rental Core Net Operating Income Margin was 59.7%.1
  • 94.1% of stabilized rentals were leased at June 30, 2019.
  • Sold 160 non-core assets for proceeds of $27.9 million and a $3.3 million gain over carrying value during the second quarter of 2019.
  • Amended Credit Suisse and Nomura warehouse lines, improving fee structures and reducing interest rate spreads from 3.00% to 2.30% on borrowings secured by rental properties.

“With the internalization of property management completed in the first quarter of 2019, Front Yard had direct control over its portfolio for the first time in the second quarter,” stated George Ellison, Chief Executive Officer. “We successfully transferred externally managed homes onto our internal platform well ahead of schedule, quintupling the size of our platform. In doing so, we have experienced some operational challenges that impacted our results this quarter. We are already executing on measures to address these challenges that we expect to drive better results going forward. Along with the improvements to our asset management structure and the strong fundamentals underlying the single-family rental market, Front Yard is very well positioned to deliver long-term value to its stockholders.”

Front Yard Residential Corporation

Regulation G Requirement: Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(In thousands, except share and per share amounts)
(Unaudited)

In evaluating Front Yard’s financial performance, management reviews Funds from Operations (“FFO”), Core Funds from Operations (“Core FFO”), Stabilized Rental Net Operating Income (“Stabilized Rental NOI”), Stabilized Rental Net Operating Income Margin (“Stabilized Rental NOI Margin”) and Stabilized Rental Core Net Operating Income Margin (“Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin”), which exclude certain items from Front Yard’s results under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These metrics are non-GAAP performance measures that Front Yard believes are useful to assist investors in gaining an understanding of the trends and operating metrics for Front Yard’s core business. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, Front Yard’s reported results under U.S. GAAP.

The following provides related definitions of, and a reconciliation of Front Yard’s U.S. GAAP results to FFO, Core FFO, Stabilized Rental NOI, Stabilized Rental NOI Margin and Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin for the periods presented:

FFO and Core FFO: FFO is a supplemental performance measure of an equity real estate investment trust (“REIT”) used by industry analysts and investors in order to facilitate meaningful comparisons between periods and among peer companies. FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) as GAAP net income or loss excluding gains or losses from sales of property, impairment charges on real estate and depreciation and amortization on real estate assets adjusted for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments.

We believe that FFO is a meaningful supplemental measure of our overall operating performance because historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, as reflected through depreciation. Because real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, management considers FFO an appropriate supplemental performance measure as it excludes historical cost depreciation, impairment charges and gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated homes from GAAP net income. By excluding depreciation, impairment and gains or losses on sales of real estate, FFO provides a measure of our returns on our investments in real estate assets. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the homes that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures to maintain the operating performance of the homes, all of which have real economic effect and could materially affect our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited.

Our Core FFO begins with FFO and is adjusted for share-based compensation; acquisition and integration costs; non-cash interest expense related to deferred debt issuance costs, amortization of loan discounts and mark-to-market adjustments on interest rate derivatives; and other non-comparable items, as applicable. We believe that Core FFO, when used in conjunction with the results of operations under GAAP, is a meaningful supplemental measure of our operating performance for the same reasons as FFO and is further helpful as it provides a consistent measurement of our performance across reporting periods by removing the impact of certain items that are not comparable from period to period. Because Core FFO, similar to FFO, captures neither the changes in the value of the homes nor the level of capital expenditures to maintain them, the utility of Core FFO as a measure of our performance is limited.

Although management believes that FFO and Core FFO increase our comparability with other companies, these measures may not be comparable to the FFO or Core FFO of other companies because other companies may adopt a definition of FFO other than the NAREIT definition, may apply a different method of determining Core FFO or may utilize metrics other than or in addition to Core FFO.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP to FFO and Core FFO:

  Three months ended
June 30, 2019
GAAP net loss $(25,017)
   
Adjustments to determine FFO:  
Depreciation and amortization 19,936 
Impairment 1,576 
Net gain on real estate and mortgage loans (3,842)
FFO (7,347)
   
Adjustments to determine Core FFO:  
Acquisition and integration costs 651 
Non-cash interest expense 2,534 
Share-based compensation 1,811 
Other adjustments 5,025 
Core FFO $2,674 
   
Weighted average common stock outstanding - basic and diluted 53,714,998 
FFO per share - basic and diluted $(0.14)
Core FFO per share - basic and diluted $0.05 

Stabilized Rental: We define a property as stabilized once it has been renovated and then initially leased or available for rent for a period greater than 90 days. All other homes are considered non-stabilized. Homes are considered stabilized even after subsequent resident turnover. However, homes may be removed from the stabilized home portfolio and placed in the non-stabilized home portfolio due to renovation during the home lifecycle or because they are identified for sale.

Stabilized Rental NOI, Stabilized Rental NOI Margin and Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin: Stabilized Rental NOI is a non-GAAP supplemental measure that we define as rental revenues less residential property operating expenses of the stabilized rental properties in our rental portfolio. We define Stabilized Rental NOI Margin as Stabilized Rental NOI divided by rental revenues. We define Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin as Stabilized Rental NOI divided by core rental revenues from Stabilized Rentals, which are rental revenues less tenant charge-back revenues attributable to our Stabilized Rentals.

We consider Stabilized Rental NOI and Stabilized Rental NOI Margin to be meaningful supplemental measures of operating performance because they reflect the operating performance of our stabilized properties without allocation of corporate level overhead or general and administrative costs, acquisition fees and other similar costs and provide insight to the ongoing operations of our business. In addition, Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin removes the impact of tenant charge-backs that are included in both revenues and expenses and therefore have a no impact to our net results of operations. These measures should be used only as supplements to and not substitutes for net income or loss or net cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP. These net operating income measures should not be used as indicators of funds available to fund cash needs, including distributions and dividends. Although we may use these non-GAAP measures to compare our performance to other REITs, not all REITs may calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same way, and there is no assurance that our calculation is comparable with that of other REITs. While management believes that our calculations are reasonable, there is no standard calculation methodology for Stabilized Rental NOI, Stabilized Rental NOI Margin or Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin, and different methodologies could produce materially different results.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP to Stabilized Rental NOI, Stabilized Rental NOI Margin and Stabilized Rental Core NOI Margin:

  Three months ended
June 30, 2019
GAAP net loss $(25,017)
   
Adjustments:  
Revenues from non-stabilized properties 22 
Net gain on real estate and mortgage loans (3,842)
Operating expenses on non-stabilized properties 1,210 
Depreciation and amortization 19,936

Mortgage loan servicing costs 194 
Interest expense 21,165 
Share-based compensation 1,811 
General and administrative 7,992 
Management fees to AAMC 3,556 
Income tax expense 6 
Other expense 1,019 
Stabilized Rental NOI $30,279 
   
Rental revenues $51,553 
Less: rental revenues from non-stabilized properties 22

Less: tenant charge-back revenues from Stabilized Rentals (876)
