Imperial Holdings, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter And Year End 2012 Results

In the Structured Settlement business segment, income was $4.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $3.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Segment expenses decreased by $2.0 million to $4.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $6.7 million in the year ago period. The decrease was attributed to lower marketing costs and general and administrative expenses. Segment operating loss was $660,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to a segment operating loss of $2.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The Company originated 209 transactions during the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 255 during the same period of 2011.

Full Year Ended December 31, 2012

Total income was $19.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, a 57% decrease over total income of $44.2 million for 2011. Total expenses were $63.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to total expenses of $83.4 million for 2011, a reduction of $19.6 million, or 24%. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $44.6 million, or ($2.10) per share compared to a net loss of $39.2 million or ($2.03) per share for 2011, an increase of $5.5 million or 14%.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had $20.3 million of cash and cash equivalents, and marketable securities. The book value of the Company at December 31, 2012 was $5.97 per share.

$45 Million Bridge Financing

The Company also announced today it has closed on its previously announced $45 million bridge facility. The facility was provided by affiliates of some of the Company’s largest shareholders, including Indaba Capital Management, Nantahala Capital Management, NS Advisors and Brooklyn Capital Management (a/k/a Bulldog Investors).

Antony Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We ended 2012 with positive momentum in both our Life Finance and Structured Settlements business segments. During the quarter we benefited from an increase in the fair value of our life settlement assets, as well as significantly lower legal expenses.” Mr. Mitchell added, “More recently, we successfully completed our previously announced $45 million financing facility with some of our major shareholders. It will ensure our ability to make premium payments on our life insurance policies into 2014. The facility also provides us with additional flexibility as we progress towards sourcing a longer term financing solution.”
