Resource Capital CEO Discusses Q3 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

And with that I’ll turn it back to Jonathan.

Jonathan Cohen

Thank you Purvi. First a few highlights. Our GAAP net income was $14.9 million or $0.20 per share diluted, and $37.3 million or $0.54 per share diluted for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Compared to 14.1 million or $0.27 and 28.8 million or $0.64 per share diluted for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, respectively.

Funds from operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $16.2 million or $0.22 per-share diluted and 40.2 million or $0.59 per share diluted respectively.

Total revenues increased by $4.3 million or 22% and $17.1 million or 35% compared to the three and nine month ended September 30, 2011 respectively. We paid a dividend of $0.25 per common share for the quarter or 19.2 million in the aggregate on October 27, 2011 to stockholders of record as of September 30, 2011.

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

Resource Capital saw another quarter of growth, lower credit provisions and good cash flow. We were also very active in terms of moving forward with our plans, reaching important goals and strategic objectives.

We continue to build our investment portfolio while paring some older and riskier real estate positions. In fact, we originated close to $40 million of real estate whole-loans for the quarter and into October, and are in the process of closing even more.

In this same timeframe, we purchased approximately $15 million in real estate equity investments, distressed and value add. And we opportunistically converted two loans with close to $35 million outstanding into equity ownership. We sold some positions and received over $13 million of cash from repayments this quarter.
