Resource Capital CEO Discusses Q4 2010 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

And with that I'll turn the call back to Jonathan.

Jonathan Cohen

Thank you, Purvi. First, a few highlights, for the three and year ended December 31, 2010. We had adjusted net income of $0.33 and $1.15 per share diluted respectively, as compared to the three months and year ended December 31, 2009 of $0.36 and $1.45.

Estimated REIT taxable income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010 was $0.14 per share diluted and $0.85 per share diluted respectively, as compared to $0.34 and $1.23 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2009.

We announced a dividend of $0.25 per common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 for $14.6 million in aggregate, which was paid on January 26, 2011 to stockholders of record. Book value was $5.99 for common share as of December 31, 2010.

With those highlights out of the way, I will now introduce my colleagues. With me today are, Dave Bloom, Senior Vice President in charge of Real Estate Lending; and David Bryant, our Chief Financial Officer; as well as Purvi Kamdar, our Director of Investor Relations.

The fourth quarter and fiscal year 2010 saw great improvement in our outlook for Resource Capital. As demonstrated by our adjusted net income, we earned $0.33 for the quarter, over 30% more than our $0.25 dividend. We made significant investments and restarted our commercial mortgage origination platform.

While we expanded greatly our commercial finance operations and our syndicated bank loan business, we continue to shrink our exposure to legacy real estate loans, with payoffs and sales on a combined $112 million of commercial real estate loans from the troubled period, those originated during the troubled period of 2006, 2007, almost all of these subordinate loans.

We started to reinvest these dollars and are seeing a market increase in net interest income. With these result and with our new investments, I reiterated as I have before that we are dedicated to $1 cash dividend for 2011 calendar year. We as managers and shareholders are working hard to build a company that can both pay a substantial dividend and increase shareholder value by building and growing business platforms.
