Altisource Asset Management : Reports First Quarter 2021 Results (Form 8-K)

Altisource Asset Management Corporation Reports First Quarter 2021 Results

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, May 17, 2021(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Altisource Asset Management Corporation ('AAMC' or the 'Company') (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Developments

•Fueled by cash resources emanating from the sales and termination of discontinued operations late last year, the Company invested in equity securities concentrated in Real Estate Investment Trusts ('REITs'). The purpose was to secure investment income while the Company reviews new business opportunities.
•Net income of $5.9 million for the first quarter was fueled in part by (i) the market value appreciation of those REIT equity securities as well as the associated dividend income, and (ii) the gain on the sale of subsidiaries to Front Yard Residential Corporation.
•Settled ongoing litigation with Putnam Investments, LLC and its affiliates (collectively 'Putnam'), one of the plaintiffs in the litigation related to the Company's Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

'The Company's attention and focus' stated Thomas K. McCarthy, Interim Chief Executive Officer 'is to identify, evaluate and where applicable, pursue new business opportunities. In the meantime, the Company is keeping its options open and no final decision has been made.'

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

AAMC's net income for the first quarter of 2021 was $5.9 million compared to a net loss of $3.8 million for the same period in 2020. Due to a $71.9 million gain on the settlement of preferred shares, which was recorded directly to equity, but is included in the numerator for our earnings per share calculations, diluted earnings per share was $37.41 for the quarter, compared with a diluted net loss per share of $2.35 for the same period in 2020.

About AAMC

AAMC has historically been an asset management company that provides portfolio management and corporate governance services to investment vehicles but given the sale and discontinuance of certain operations the Company is in the process of repositioning itself.
