FREDERIKSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Asset Management Corporation (AAMC or the Company) (OTCQX:AAMC) announced today financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2013. Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $1.5 million or $0.64 per share based on a weighted average of 2.3 million shares outstanding.
Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $2.3 million or $1.00 per share based on a weighted average of 2.3 million shares outstanding.
Second quarter business performance highlights:
On April 5, 2013, we completed an acquisition of a portfolio of non-performing residential mortgage loans (NPLs) for Residential having an unpaid principal balance, or UPB, of $172.1 million.
On May 1, 2013, we completed a follow-on equity offering for Residential of 17,250,000 shares at $18.75 per share from which Residential received net proceeds of $309.5 million.
In addition, during the quarter we agreed to acquire two NPL portfolios for Residential with $470 million in UPB. These recent transactions are expected to close in July 2013.
Net investment gains for the quarter totaled $8.9 million.
Chairman William Erbey stated, "I am pleased with the continued strong performance of AAMC and its management team on behalf of Residential in NPL acquisitions, loan resolutions and capital raising, three key pillars of Residential's business. Upon closing of the most recent transactions, Residential's NPL acquisitions will total approximately 4,100 loans representing $820 million in UPB and $625 million in underlying property value. Through AAMC's efforts, Residential is well on its way to achieve its first year goal of acquiring loans that will eventually result in 5,000 rental properties."
"I am encouraged by the early results of Residential's NPL portfolio and the progress made in loan resolutions in the short time period since inception of operations," said Chief Executive Officer Ashish Pandey. "Our success in portfolio acquisitions for Residential and the positive early results in loan resolution reflect our sound execution of Residential's business plan and strategy."
