  • $0.40 of Core Earnings per diluted common share(6)
    • $0.45 excluding a $0.05 retrospective adjustment
      • Interest income declined by $0.08 from last quarter primarily due to lower yields and a smaller portfolio in the first quarter

      • The larger portfolio duration gap in place since the middle of the fourth quarter more than offset the modest basis widening experienced, given the substantial rally in rates

    • $(0.71) or (4.0)% due to Credit Investments
      • Credit spreads across fixed income asset classes widened materially during the quarter due to liquidity constraints, shrinking broker-dealer balance sheets, and as many risk assets exhibited strong correlations with the price of oil

MANAGEMENT REMARKS

"The first quarter of 2016 was characterized by heightened volatility, as credit spreads widened materially during the quarter, and mortgage and asset backed securities experienced severe re-pricing," commented Jonathan Lieberman, President and Chief Investment Officer. "January and February were among the most stressful periods for our markets since March 2009, however, in March and April there was a favorable broad-based recovery in risk assets. Given this challenging investment environment, the investment team reduced overall leverage, increased the duration gap, and continued our strategic objective of rotation and reallocation to credit investments."

"Despite these headwinds, underlying fundamentals and mortgage collateral performance continues to remain very strong and home prices are increasing," said Chief Executive Officer David Roberts. "Additionally, Arc Home continues to make progress to begin nationwide operations upon receipt of the approvals required to acquire the mortgage originator. We are on track to obtain these consents in the second quarter of 2016."

As of March 31, 2016, the weighted average yield on the Company's investment portfolio was 4.75% and its weighted average cost of funds was 1.73%. This resulted in a net interest margin of 3.02% as of March 31, 2016. (3)

We recognized net realized losses of $13.0 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2016. We sold certain real estate securities realizing a net loss of $1.4 million and settled TBAs realizing a net gain of $0.2 million. Additionally, we recognized $2.6 million of realized loss due to the settlement of certain derivatives and $9.2 million of realized loss due to other-than-temporary-impairment or OTTI, charges on certain securities and loans. OTTI is recorded when there is an adverse change in cash flows where the fair value of a security is less than its carrying amount. Of the $9.2 million, $4.7 million was taken on floating rate credit bonds and Agency IO.

Premiums and discounts associated with purchases of the Company's securities are amortized or accreted into interest income over the estimated life of such securities, using the effective yield method. The Company recorded a $(1.4) million, or $(0.05) per share, retrospective adjustment due to the change in projected cash flows on its Agency RMBS, excluding interest-only securities and TBAs. Since the cost basis of the Company's Agency RMBS securities, excluding interest-only securities and TBAs, exceeds the underlying principal balance by 2.8% as of March 31, 2016, slower actual and projected prepayments can have a meaningful positive impact, while faster actual or projected prepayments can have a meaningful negative impact on the Company's asset yields.

FINANCING AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

The Company, either directly or through its equity method investments in affiliates, has entered into financing arrangements with 37 counterparties, excluding FHLB, under which it had debt outstanding with 21 counterparties as of March 31, 2016. The weighted average funding cost was 0.8% for Agency RMBS and 2.2% for our credit investment portfolio.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release presents certain non-GAAP financial results and financial metrics derived therefrom, which are calculated by including or excluding unconsolidated investments in affiliates, TBAs, and U.S. Treasuries as described in the footnotes. AG Mortgage Investment Trust, Inc.'s management believes that these non-GAAP measures, when considered with the Company's GAAP financials, provide supplemental information useful for investors in evaluating the results of the Company's operations.

This press release also contains Core Earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company's presentation of Core Earnings may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies, who may use different calculations. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our GAAP financial results and the reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Core Earnings are defined by the Company as net income excluding both realized and unrealized gains/(losses) on the sale or termination of securities and the related tax expense/benefit or disposition expense, if any, on such sale or termination, including (i) investments held in affiliated entities and (ii) derivatives. As defined, Core Earnings include the net interest earned on these investments on a yield adjusted basis, including credit derivatives, investments in debt and equity of affiliates, inverse Agency interest-only securities, interest rate derivatives or any other investment activity that may earn or pay net interest. One of the objectives of the Company is to generate net income from net interest margin on the portfolio and management uses Core Earnings to measure this objective.

A reconciliation of GAAP net income to Core Earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the three months ended March 31, 2015 is set forth below:

Footnotes

(1) Per share figures are calculated using a denominator of all outstanding common shares including all shares granted to our Manager and our independent directors under our equity incentive plans as of quarter end. Net book value uses stockholders' equity less net proceeds of the Company's 8.25% Series A and 8.00% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock as the numerator.
(2)

Generally when we purchase a security and employ leverage, the security is included in our assets and the leverage is reflected in our liabilities on the balance sheet as either repo, Securitized Debt, or loan participations payable. We invested in certain credit sensitive commercial real estate securities and mortgage loans through affiliated entities for which we have used the equity method of accounting. Throughout this press release where we disclose our investment portfolio, we have presented the underlying assets and repurchase financings consistently with all other investments and financings. This presentation excludes investments through AG Arc LLC. Additionally, GAAP requires TBAs to be accounted for as derivatives, representing a forward purchase, or sale, of Agency RMBS. We have included any net TBA positions as part of Agency RMBS in our portfolio composition unless otherwise stated. This presentation is consistent with how the Company's management evaluates the business and believes that it provides the most accurate depiction of the Company's investment portfolio and financial condition. See footnote 17 for further details on AG Arc LLC.

(3)

The total investment portfolio at period end is calculated by summing the fair market value of our Agency RMBS, any net TBA position, Residential Investments, Commercial Investments, and ABS, including securities and mortgage loans owned through investments in affiliates, exclusive of AG Arc LLC. The percentage of Agency RMBS and Credit Investments is calculated by dividing the respective fair market value of each, including any net TBA positions as Agency RMBS and securities and mortgage loans owned through investments in affiliates as Credit Investments, by the total investment portfolio. See footnote 17 for further details on AG Arc LLC.

(5) This represents the weighted average monthly CPRs published during the quarter, or month, as applicable, for our in-place portfolio during the same period. Any net TBA position is excluded from the CPR calculation.

The hedge ratio at quarter end was calculated by dividing the notional value of our interest rate swaps, net positions in U.S. Treasury securities, IO Index notionals, and interest rate swaptions, including receive fixed swap notionals and long positions in U.S. Treasury securities as negative values as applicable, by either Agency financing or total financing. See footnote 14 for further details on our definition of total financing and Agency financing.

(9) The yield on our investment portfolio represents an effective interest rate, which utilizes all estimates of future cash flows and adjusts for actual prepayment and cash flow activity as of quarter end. This calculation excludes cash held by the Company and excludes any net TBA position.
(10) The cost of funds at quarter end was calculated as the sum of the weighted average funding costs on total financing outstanding at quarter end and the weighted average of the net pay rate on our interest rate swaps, the net receive/pay rate on our Treasury long and short positions, respectively, and the net receivable rate on our IO index derivatives, if any. Both elements of the cost of funds at quarter end were weighted by the outstanding repurchase agreements, securitized debt and loan participations payable outstanding at quarter end, excluding repurchase agreements associated with U.S. Treasury positions. The cost of funds excludes any net TBA position.
(11) The management fee percentage at quarter end was calculated by annualizing management fees recorded during the quarter and dividing by quarter end stockholders' equity.
(12) The other operating expenses percentage at quarter end was calculated by annualizing other operating expenses recorded during the quarter and dividing by quarter end stockholders' equity.
(13) Undistributed taxable income per common share represents total undistributed taxable income as of quarter end. Undistributed taxable income is based on current estimates and is not finalized until we file our annual tax return, typically in September of the following year.
