Press Release

Five Oaks Investment Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results And Announces Second Quarter 2017 Common and Preferred Stock Dividends
Continued Simplification and Streamlining of Business Model

NEW YORK, March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Oaks Investment Corp. (NYSE: OAKS) ("we", "Five Oaks" or "the Company") today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter, the Company reported GAAP net income of $10.6 million, or $0.72 per basic and diluted share, a comprehensive loss of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, and core earnings (1) of $2.8 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share. For the year, the Company reported GAAP net loss of $11.5 million, or $0.79 per basic and diluted share, a comprehensive loss of $20.4 million, or $1.39 per basic and diluted share, and core earnings (1) of $10.9 million, or $0.75 per basic and diluted share. The Company also reported a net book value of $6.00 per share on a basic and diluted basis at December 31, 2016, which reflects, in large part, the increase in the Company's share count resulting from the issuance of stock in connection with the payment of a deficiency dividend in December 2016, as well as the cash portion of this dividend.

The Company also announced that on March 14, 2017, its board of directors declared monthly cash dividend rates for the second quarter of 2017 of $0.05 per share of common stock for the months of April, May and June. Further, in accordance with the terms of the 8.75% Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ("Series A Preferred Stock"), the board of directors has also declared monthly cash dividend rates for the second quarter of 2017 of $0.1823 per share of Series A Preferred Stock.

2016 and Subsequent Events Summary

  • Realized a negative economic return on our common stock of 16.0% for the year after accounting for dividends of $2.04. (2)
  • On a pro forma basis, after adjusting our net book value per common share at September 30, 2016 for the cash and stock portions of the deficiency dividend paid in December 2016, the remaining change in net book value per share during the fourth quarter was $(0.19) per share on a basic and diluted basis.
  • Continued the reduction of Non-Agency RMBS exposure from $121.5 million at December 31, 2015 to $12.8 million at December 31, 2016 (on a non-GAAP combined basis); since year end, we have sold $7.6 million of the remaining exposure, substantially completing our reduction in Non-Agency RMBS exposure.
  • Continued to redeploy capital released from selling down our credit exposure into Agency RMBS, which increased from $375.3 million at December 31, 2015 to $790.2 million at December 31, 2016.  In order to minimize the potential impact of interest rate volatility, the increase was composed of purchases of Agency hybrid-ARMS.
  • Commencing on August 1, 2016, we ceased to aggregate prime jumbo mortgage loans, and no longer maintain warehousing facilities to fund loan purchases.  The reduction in personnel and related business infrastructure expenses of the prime jumbo business will be substantially complete by March 31, 2017.
  • On April 25, 2016, we effected a re-securitization of certain first loss Multi-Family MBS securities backed by Freddie Mac K Certificates with a certificate principal balance of approximately $32.1 million, permitting the repayment of all related repurchase agreement financing.  Additionally, on April 21, 2016, we sold first loss securities from another Freddie Mac K series transaction with a certificate balance of approximately $79.7 million, plus related interest-only securities, permitting the repayment of all related repurchase agreement financing.
  • On November 9, 2016, we declared a deficiency dividend of $19,384,684, or $1.3275 per common share, which was paid by the issuance of 2,936,864 common shares at a price of $5.28 per share and the remainder of $3,878,042 in cash.  The deficiency dividend was paid in order to reduce our undistributed taxable income from 2013 and in accordance with REIT rules and regulations in connection with a determination of an inability to offset net gains realized on certain hedging transactions in 2013 against net capital losses realized on the sale of mortgage-backed securities.  We recorded a charge of $1.86 million in the third quarter for interest charges projected to be payable to the IRS in the first quarter of 2017. On March 8, 2017, we paid an amount of $2.01 million to the IRS, and accordingly will record an additional interest charge of $0.15 million in the first quarter.

(1) Core Earnings is a non-GAAP measure that we define as GAAP net income, excluding impairment losses, realized and unrealized gains or losses on the aggregate portfolio and certain non-recurring upfront costs related to securitization transactions or other one-time charges. As defined, Core Earnings includes interest income or expense and premium income or loss on derivative instruments.

(2) Economic return is a non-GAAP measure that we define as the sum of the change in net book value per common share and dividends declared on our common stock during the period over the beginning net book value per common share.

Management Observations

David Carroll, Five Oaks' Chairman and CEO commented: "The latter part of 2016 was certainly interesting and eventful for both the markets and for Five Oaks. The unanticipated election of Donald Trump was viewed positively for both equity and credit markets, and reflationary for fixed income markets. The 10-year treasury rose from a low of 1.59% to a high of 2.64%, representing a 105 bps low to high range. The 2/10's spread widened from 81 bps to as high as 136 bps. Typically such conditions are negative for levered buyers of fixed rate mortgages and hence mortgage REIT book values, while curve steepening is positive for re-investment opportunities. We believe the Fed will tighten a few times this year which is now reflected in the steepening curve and higher rates across the curve. We also believe the longer term direction of rates is highly dependent on the new administration's success in implementing its reflationary growth plans for the economy. Given the political gridlock we have seen over the last several years we would not be surprised to see implementation of the new administration's economic and fiscal plan take longer than the markets appear to be pricing in.

After adjusting for the stock and cash components of our December 2016 deficiency dividend, our net book value per share was down approximately 3% from $6.19 to $6.00 in the fourth quarter. I believe that our performance in the quarter was solid given market volatility, due in significant part to our methodical and active hedging, focus upon intermediate floating-rate Agency hybrid securities and a tightening in credit spreads. Agency spreads tightened as rates increased and the curve steepened in the hybrid agency sector, while the 30-year Agency sector widened and extended into the sell-off. We continued to opportunistically sell down our legacy Non-Agency positions, which we exited completely in the first quarter of 2017, and also made opportunistic sales of our Multi-Family and new issue Non-Agency subordinate positions in order to further reduce our reliance on repo funding of credit risk assets. We reinvested proceeds into new issue Agency hybrids at yields and spreads we consider attractive as rates increased. 

As communicated previously, we intend to continue to focus on a business strategy that is both simpler to understand and more cost efficient. We now intend to focus our balance sheet assets primarily on intermediate Agency hybrid floating rate securities and Freddie Mac K-series Multi-Family exposure while looking also for term funded credit opportunities when they arise. Investing in Agency hybrid securities should allow us to capture yield while seeking to minimize extension risk. Hybrid securities also typically benefit from roll down the curve, which is amplified as the yield curve steepens - as it did particularly in the fourth quarter. Our simplified business strategy and exiting the prime jumbo aggregation business has allowed us to meaningfully bring down our expense base, a process we believe will be substantially completed by the end of the first quarter. We also booked our first meaningful volume of business as backstop guarantee provider for what we believe to be limited rep and warranty risk on prime jumbo residential mortgage loans sold through MAXEX's LNEX Exchange.

Looking back on our full year 2016, I believe we have made great strides in simplifying our business model, improving our funding and liquidity and increasing the portfolio's cash generation capacity.  Although we are small, I believe our portfolio rebalancing has enhanced Five Oaks' positioning in the mortgage REIT sector heading into 2017".

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. securities laws that are subject to risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements include information about possible or assumed future results of the Company's business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, plans and objectives. You can identify forward-looking statements by use of words such as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "plan," "continue," "intend," "should," "may" or similar expressions or other comparable terms, or by discussions of strategy, plans or intentions. Statements regarding the following subjects, among others, may be forward-looking: the return on equity; the yield on investments; the ability to borrow to finance assets; and risks associated with investing in real estate assets, including changes in business conditions, interest rates, the general economy and political conditions and related matters. Forward-looking statements are based on the Company's beliefs, assumptions and expectations of its future performance, taking into account all information currently available to the Company. Actual results may differ from expectations, estimates and projections and, consequently, you should not rely on these forward looking statements as predictions of future events. Forward-looking statements are subject to substantial risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond the Company's control. Additional information concerning these and other risk factors are contained in the Company's most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available on the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov.

All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements that the Company makes, or that are attributable to the Company, are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by law, the Company is not obligated to, and does not intend to, update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

For financial statement reporting purposes, GAAP requires us to consolidate the assets and liabilities of the FREMF 2011-K13 Trust; FREMF 2012-KF01 Trust; and CSMC 2014-OAK1 Trust.  However, our maximum exposure to loss from consolidation of the consolidated trusts is limited to the fair value of our net investment therein. We therefore have also presented certain information as of December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 that includes our net investments in the consolidated trusts. This information as well as core earnings, economic return and comparative expenses constitute non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K, as promulgated by the SEC. While we believe the non-GAAP information included in this press release provides supplemental information to assist investors in analyzing that portion of our portfolio composed of Non-Agency RMBS and Multi-Family MBS, and to assist investors in comparing our results with other peer issuers, these measures are not in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, our financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our GAAP financial results and the reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Additional Information

As of December 31, 2016, we have determined that we were the primary beneficiary of two Multi-Family MBS securitization trusts, the FREMF 2011-K13 Trust, and the FREMF 2012-KF01 Trust. As a result, we are required to consolidate the trusts' underlying multi-family loans together with their liabilities, income and expenses in our consolidated financial statements. We have elected the fair value option on the assets and liabilities held within the trusts, which requires that changes in valuation in the assets and liabilities of these trusts be reflected in our consolidated statements of operations.

A reconciliation of our net capital investment in multi-family investments to our financial statements as of December 31, 2016 is set forth below:

As of December 31, 2016, we have determined that we were the primary beneficiary of one prime jumbo residential mortgage securitization trust, CSMC 2014-OAK1. As a result, we are required to consolidate the trust's underlying prime jumbo residential loans together with its liabilities, income and expenses in our consolidated financial statements. We have elected the fair value option on the assets and liabilities held within the trust, which requires that changes in valuation in the assets and liabilities of the trust be reflected in our consolidated statements of operations.

A reconciliation of our net capital investment in Non-Agency RMBS to our financial statements as of December 31, 2016 is set forth below:
