Broadmark Realty Capital Announces First Quarter 2020 Results

– Originated $107 Million of Loans –

– Strong Liquidity with No Debt and $258 Million of Cash –

– Launched Broadmark Private REIT, Providing Additional Capital Source –

SEATTLE--()--Broadmark Realty Capital Inc. (NYSE: BRMK) (the “Company”), an internally managed commercial mortgage real estate investment trust focused primarily on short-term real-estate-backed senior loans, today announced operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Our first quarter results demonstrate the strength of our operational model and balance sheet. Our originations were in excess of $100 million. We also launched our private REIT, which is actively raising capital to fund participations in our loan originations,” said Jeff Pyatt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadmark.

Furthermore, we ended the quarter with substantial cash on hand and no debt outstanding, enabling us to serve our borrowers’ near-term funding needs while also positioning us to take advantage of opportunities to grow our market share as other credit-dependent lenders pull back. Certainly, there will be disruptions resulting from COVID-19, including slowing construction activity. We are committed to working with our borrowers as we navigate these challenging times while delivering the service that has made us a lender of choice for so many builders. We continue to originate new loans, and we are confident in the long-term prospects for construction lending and the need for additional housing as we emerge from this crisis.”

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO CORE EARNINGS

(in thousands, except for per share amounts)

 

 

Definition of Core Earnings
 
Core earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure used by management as a supplemental measure to evaluate our performance. We define core earnings as net income attributable to common stockholders adjusted for: (i) impairment recorded on our investments; (ii) realized and unrealized gains and losses on our investments; (iii) non-capitalized transaction-related expenses; (iv) non-cash stock-based compensation; (v) amortization of our intangible assets; and (vi) deferred taxes, which are subject to variability and generally not indicative of future economic performance or representative of current operations.
 
Management believes that the adjustments to compute “core earnings” specified above allow investors and analysts to readily identify and track the operating performance of the assets that form the core of our activity, assist in comparing the core operating results between periods, and enable investors to evaluate our current core performance using the same measure that management uses to operate the business. Core earnings excludes certain recurring items, such as gains and losses (including impairment) and non-capitalized transaction-related expenses because they are not considered by management to be part of our core operations for the reasons described herein. As such, core earnings is not intended to reflect all of our activity and should be considered as only one of the factors used by management in assessing our performance, along with GAAP net income which is inclusive of all of our activities.
 
Core earnings does not represent and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or as a substitute for, or superior to, cash flows from operating activities, each as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and our calculation of this measure may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other companies. Set forth below is a reconciliation of core earnings to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure:
