_____________________________________

(1)

Reflects the impact of consolidating the assets, liabilities and non-controlling interests of Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2017-D ("2017-D") and Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2018-C ("2018-C"), which are 50% and 37%, respectively, owned by third-party institutional investors.

(2)

All quarters for loan interest income and interest income on investment in debt securities and beneficial interests have been updated to reflect gross interest income before provision for credit benefit/(losses).

(3)

Interest income on investment in debt securities and beneficial interests issued by our joint ventures is net of servicing fees.

(4)

Total revenue includes net interest income, income from equity method investments and other income.

(5)

Average equity includes the effect of an aggregate of $115.1 million of preferred stock issued during the three months ended September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

(6)

Average daily cash balance includes cash and cash equivalents, and excludes cash held in trust.

(7)

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the average daily cash balance excludes $51.0 million of funds on deposit in a non-interest bearing account for a transaction that closed on September 25, 2020. Including the $51.0 million on deposit, average daily cash was $148.0 million.

(8)

All quarters have been updated to reflect average asset level debt balance from total average debt balance.

Our consolidated net income attributable to common stockholders decreased $1.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Our gross interest income increased $0.2 million, and our interest expense declined $1.3 million. Our book value increased to $15.35 per common share from $15.20 at June 30, 2020 primarily from the effects of a $4.3 million mark to market increase in the fair value of our debt securities as prices of mortgage backed securities have continued to increase from first quarter lows.

The decrease in our earnings compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was primarily driven by an increase in the amount of our earnings allocated to non-controlling interests, a decrease in earnings from our equity method investments, and an increase in the amortization expense for the put option on our outstanding warrants. The decrease in earnings from our equity method investments was primarily due to the flow through impact of the decline in share price on shares of our stock held by our manager and our servicer. Additionally, our $83.4 million of investments in joint venture debt securities and beneficial interests which were made in the third quarter were on our consolidated balance sheet for a weighted average of only five days during the quarter and therefore provided minimal benefit to our earnings for the third quarter.

Our net interest income prior to the recovery of the provision for credit losses increased $1.6 million over the prior quarter primarily driven by a decrease in our overall cost of funds by approximately 49 basis points during the third quarter and increases in the average balances of our mortgage loan and securities portfolios. We expect our cost of funds to continue to decrease materially in the current interest rate and credit environment.

Our net interest income after the recovery of the provision for credit losses increased $1.3 million over the prior quarter. We had a recovery of $4.0 million of provision for credit losses on our loan and securities portfolios on a consolidated basis, and $3.0 million after allocating $1.0 million to non-controlling interests. This compares to a recovery in the quarter ended June 30, 2020 of $4.3 million, and $4.4 million after $0.1 million of losses to non-controlling interests. The reversal of the provision for credit losses was primarily triggered by better than expected loan performance and its related impact on future cash flows as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cash flow extension has not been as material thus far as we anticipated earlier in the year.

We acquired 244 RPLs for $41.2 million with UPB of $46.3 million and underlying collateral values of $65.3 million, one NPL for $0.5 million with UPB of $0.5 million and underlying collateral value of $0.7 million, and originated two SBC loans with UPB of $1.9 million and underlying collateral values of $3.9 million. These loans were acquired and included on our consolidated balance sheet for a weighted average of 67 days of the quarter. We ended the quarter with $1.1 billion of mortgage loans with an aggregate UPB of $1.2 billion.

We recorded $0.2 million in impairments on our REO held-for-sale portfolio in real estate operating expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $0.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. We continue to liquidate our REO properties held-for-sale at a faster rate than we acquire properties, with seven properties sold in the third quarter while five were added to REO held-for-sale through foreclosures. Our inventory of REO held-for-sale declined by 52% year-to-date through September 30, 2020 as more REO properties were acquired by third parties at foreclosure and foreclosure sales were delayed due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect these trends to continue into the fourth quarter of 2020.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, we repurchased and retired $2.5 million of our senior convertible notes which carry a coupon rate of 7.25% for a total purchase price of $2.3 million.

We use securities and loan repurchase agreements, among other means, to fund our investment activities. Our securities repurchase agreements are subject to margin calls based on the fair value of the security. Due to the turmoil in the financial markets resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, we received an unusually high volume of margin calls from our financing counterparties during the first quarter of 2020, of which the majority was recovered during the second quarter of 2020. During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, we further recovered cash collateral on a net basis in the amount of $6.6 million from lenders and had $1.0 million of cash collateral on deposit with financing counterparties at September 30, 2020. At September 30, 2020, we held $284.7 million of debt securities in our joint ventures. Of the total debt securities, $265.1 million were pledged as collateral on our repurchase borrowing lines and $19.6 million of debt securities were unencumbered at September 30, 2020. Additionally, we retained $227.2 million in securities from our secured borrowings which are not presented in our consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2020. Of the total retained securities, $98.1 million were pledged as collateral on our repurchase lines and $129.1 million were unencumbered at September 30, 2020. Our investments in beneficial interests in the amount of $86.2 million at September 30, 2020 were unencumbered.

We collected $56.4 million of cash during the quarter as a result of loan payments, loan payoffs, sales of REO and cash collections on our securities portfolio to end the third quarter with $135.2 million in cash and cash equivalents. $44.0 million of our cash collections were derived from our mortgage loan and REO portfolios as a result of loan payments, loan payoffs and sales of REO during the quarter and $12.4 million were derived from interest and principal payments on investments in debt securities and beneficial interests. Of the $44.0 million of cash collections from mortgage loans and REO, we received $21.4 million from loans paying the full amount of principal, past due interest and charges. We also sold $38.9 million of senior debt securities previously issued by our joint ventures and held as investments and retired the corresponding repurchase agreements through which these were financed.

During the quarter we completed our fourth rated securitization, Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2020-B, which closed on August 6, 2020 with an aggregate of $97.2 million of AAA rated senior securities and $17.3 million of A rated securities issued with respect to $156.5 million of mortgage loans, all of which were RPLs. The AAA through A rated senior securities have a weighted average coupon of 1.874% and represent 73.2% of UPB of the underlying mortgage loans.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020 we co-invested with two third-party institutional investors to form two joint ventures, and retained an aggregate $83.4 million of varying classes of related securities and beneficial interests, to end the quarter with $370.9 million of combined investments in securities and beneficial interests. We acquired 10.01% of each class of the securities of Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2020-C ("2020-C") for a net investment of $41.5 million and 10.01% of each class of Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2020-D ("2020-D") for a net investment of $41.9 million, which were on our Consolidated balance sheet for an average of only five days during the quarter and provided minimal benefit to our earnings.

2020-C acquired 2,564 RPLs and NPLs with UPB of $435.1 million and an aggregate property value of $693.0 million. The senior securities represent 78% of the UPB of the underlying mortgage loans and carry a 2.25% interest rate. Based on the structure of the transaction we do not consolidate 2020-C under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP").

2020-D acquired 2,591 RPLs and NPLs with UPB of $441.0 million and an aggregate property value of $690.4 million. The senior securities represent 75% of the UPB of the underlying mortgage loans and carry a 2.25% interest rate. Based on the structure of the transaction we do not consolidate 2020-D under GAAP.
