Management Overview

Jason Serrano, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented: “The Company’s investment portfolio was transformed over the course of 2021 by our continued pursuit of organically-sourced opportunities through proprietary loan and joint venture pipelines. This strategic focus culminated in the fourth quarter with record quarterly investment acquisitions and fundings, portfolio yields at the highest level in nearly 10 years and a stable book value. We believe a diversified portfolio growth strategy centered around recurring income streams will provide stability to earnings in 2022. With industry leading low Company recourse leverage and flexibility aided by our low-cost operating structure, we are taking a more offensive posture to pursue opportunities in the higher rate environment for continued portfolio growth. We believe this is the path to enhance earnings.”

Stock Repurchase Program

On February 15, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to $200.0 million of its common stock through March 31, 2023. The stock repurchase program does not require the purchase of any minimum number of shares. The timing and extent to which the Company repurchases its shares will depend upon, among other things, market conditions, share price, liquidity, regulatory requirements and other factors, and repurchases may be commenced or suspended at any time without prior notice. Acquisitions under the share repurchase program may be made in the open market, through privately negotiated transactions or block trades or other means, in accordance with applicable securities laws.

The Company intends to only consider repurchasing shares of its common stock when the purchase price is less than the last publicly reported book value per common share and expects to fund the share repurchases from current liquidity.

Reconciliation of Financial Information

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including undepreciated earnings and undepreciated book value per common share. Our management team believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered with our GAAP financial statements, provide supplemental information useful for investors as it enables them to evaluate our current performance using the same metrics that management uses to operate the business. Our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies, who may use different calculations. Because these measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they 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 of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP should be carefully evaluated.

Undepreciated Earnings

Undepreciated earnings is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure defined as GAAP net income (loss) attributable to Company's common stockholders excluding the Company's share in depreciation expense and lease intangible amortization expense related to operating real estate, net. By excluding these non-cash adjustments from our operating results, we believe that the presentation of undepreciated earnings provides a consistent measure of our operating performance and useful information to investors to evaluate the effective net return on our portfolio. In addition, we believe that presenting undepreciated earnings enables our investors to measure, evaluate, and compare our operating performance to that of our peers.

A reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to Company's common stockholders to undepreciated earnings for the respective periods ended is presented below (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data).

Undepreciated Book Value Per Common Share

Undepreciated book value per common share is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure defined as GAAP book value excluding the Company's share of cumulative depreciation and lease intangible amortization expenses related to operating real estate, net. By excluding these non-cash adjustments, undepreciated book value reflects the value of the Company’s rental property portfolio at its undepreciated basis. The Company's rental property portfolio includes single-family rental homes directly owned by the Company and consolidated multi-family apartment communities. We believe that the presentation of undepreciated book value per common share is useful to investors and us as it allows management to consider our investment portfolio exclusive of non-cash adjustments to operating real estate, net and facilitates the comparison of our financial performance to that of our peers.

A reconciliation of GAAP book value to undepreciated book value and calculation of undepreciated book value per common share as of the dates indicated is presented below (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data).
