Arbor's CEO Discusses Q1 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

We also have around $115 million of net unencumbered assets, which combined with our cash on hand and cash posted against our swaps gives us approximately $220 million of value. This in addition to approximately $235 million of value between the equity in our CDO vehicles and our real estate owned assets for a total value of approximately $455 million.

We also have been effective in managing our CDOs receiving all of the cash distributions from these vehicles to date. We have three vehicles in place with the ability to invest in new assets until January 2012 in one of our CDOs. While there can be no assurances our CDO vehicles will continue to cash flow in the future. We will remain focused on optimizing and utilizing these facilities when possible.

As I mentioned earlier, we will also continue to wind the value of our legacy assets selectively lend and investment opportunities and utilize our CDO financings to enhance our returns and increase our core earnings overtime.

As we’ve discussed in the past, we’ve been very successful in repurchasing our debt of deep discounts recording significant gains and retaining substantial amount of our equity value. In the first quarter, we repurchased $1.5 million our CDO debt for $600,000 recording a gain of proximately $900,000 and we will continue to evaluate the repurchase of our CDO debt going forward based on availability, pricing and liquidity.

Additionally, as we mentioned in our last call, we started to acquire some of the real estate securing our loans and investment taking Type 2 properties in the first quarter totaling $132 million subject to $55 million our first lien debt. Paul will take you through the accounting related to these transactions in a moment.

I will stress that we believe we’ve experienced our – we have an experienced asset management team with a diverse set of skills including the ability to develop and operate real estate, which gives us the ability to better manage and enhance the value of our investments.
