SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

Chicago, IL — November 5, 2015 - Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation (the “Company,” “ACRE,” “we,” or “our”) (NYSE:ACRE), a specialty finance company primarily engaged in principal lending and mortgage banking of commercial real estate investments, reported record net income of $9.4 million or $0.33 per diluted common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. In addition, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter 2015 dividend of $0.25 per common share payable on January 19, 2016 to common stockholders of record on December 31, 2015.

 

“Our strong third quarter earnings demonstrate continued progress toward achieving our annual earnings goals,” said Robert L. Rosen, Chairman and Interim Co-Chief Executive Officer of ACRE. “Our earnings were driven by continued stable principal lending results as well as both solid production and a favorable product mix in mortgage banking.”

 

“Given the recent volatility in the credit markets, we are finding our diverse offerings and flexible capital to be a point of differentiation to borrowers,” said John Jardine, President and Co-Chief Executive Officer of ACRE.  “We are witnessing improved terms and incrementally more attractive investment opportunities across the capital structure as market participants search for consistent lenders in the face of recent volatility.”

 

“Our loan portfolio and balance sheet remain well positioned given our strong credit performance, available liquidity and moderate leverage,” said Tae-Sik Yoon, Chief Financial Officer of ACRE. “We expect to have sufficient available cash to repay our convertible notes maturing in December 2015. In addition, we continue to explore debt financing options that could help us further optimize our capital structure.”

 

2015 GUIDANCE UPDATE

 

For the year ending December 31, 2015, the Company is reaffirming its estimated net income per diluted common share to be between $1.12 to $1.18.

 

The Company’s guidance is based upon management’s current expectations regarding (1) the timing and amount of, and returns on, originations in the Principal Lending and Mortgage Banking segments in the Company’s existing pipeline, (2) the timing and amount of repayments in the Principal Lending and Mortgage Banking segments, (3) the availability and cost, including advance rates, of additional debt capital to fund new investments and commitments on existing investments, refinance existing indebtedness and for general corporate working capital purposes, (4) interest rate volatility, (5) change in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights and derivatives held by the Company, (6) taxation associated with the Company’s taxable REIT subsidiaries (“TRS”), including most significantly the TRS that holds the Mortgage Banking segment, (7) changes in the Company’s operating costs and expenses, (8) impact of raising additional debt or equity capital and (9) material acquisitions or dispositions by the Company. The Company’s guidance is also based on current expectations of market conditions, including but not limited to the level of lending and borrowing spreads, the lack of a federal government shutdown and the continuing operation of government agencies, commercial real estate loan volumes and government-sponsored enterprise activity and the judgment of the Company’s management team. There is no guarantee or assurance that such activities will occur as expected or at all. The Company’s earnings estimates are forward-looking statements and are subject to risks and other factors described elsewhere in this press release. The Company will discuss the earnings estimates on its November 5, 2015 conference call. Actual events or conditions may differ materially from these assumptions and therefore, actual results may vary significantly.

(1) The difference between the Carrying Amount and the Outstanding Principal face amount of the loans held for investment consists of unamortized purchase discount, deferred loan fees and loan origination costs.  The table above excludes non-controlling interests held by third parties. See reconciliation below of the Carrying Amount as included within the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.

(2) Unleveraged Effective Yield is the compounded effective rate of return that would be earned over the life of the investment based on the contractual interest rate (adjusted for any deferred loan fees, costs, premium or discount) and assumes no dispositions, early prepayments or defaults. The Total Weighted Average Unleveraged Effective Yield is calculated based on the average of Unleveraged Effective Yield of all loans held by the Company as of September 30, 2015 as weighted by the Outstanding Principal balance of each loan.

 

As of September 30, 2015, 90% of the Principal Lending segment’s loans held for investment portfolio consisted of floating rate loans and 83% consisted of senior mortgage loans, respectively (as measured by outstanding principal), excluding non-controlling interests held by third parties.
