04/28/2022

DALLAS, April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NexPoint Real Estate Finance, Inc. ("NREF" or the "Company") (NYSE: NREF) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

NREF reported net income of $18.7 million, or $0.81 per diluted share1, for the three months ended March 31, 2022, respectively, as compared to net income of $25.1 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, respectively.

NREF reported earnings available for distribution2 of $27.1 million, or $1.23 per diluted share1, for the three months ended March 31, 2022, respectively.

Matt McGraner, Chief Investment Officer of NREF, said "Once again, NREF delivered another strong quarter for our shareholders, generating $1.23 per diluted share of earnings available for distribution, an increase of 186% compared to the same period last year.  As we enter a period of potential instability with rising rates and inflation, we believe our defensively constructed portfolio and diversified capital stack will prove to be resilient in turbulent environments."

  • Outstanding total portfolio of $1.6 billion, composed of 70 investments4
  • Single-family rental ("SFR"), multifamily, life sciences, and self-storage represent 44.0%, 53.7%, 2.1%, and 0.1% of the Company's debt portfolio, respectively

  • On January 14, 2022, we purchased $19.6MM of a preferred equity investment with a current yield of 10.0%
  • On January 25, 2021, three single‐family rental first mortgage loans with an aggregate principal amount of $32.1MM were repaid in full
  • On January 27, 2022, we purchased $41.8MM of a preferred equity investment with a current yield of 10.5%

1 Weighted-average diluted shares outstanding assumes vesting of all outstanding unvested restricted stock units and the conversion of all redeemable non-controlling interests.
2 Earnings available for distribution and cash available for distribution are non-GAAP measures. For a discussion of why we consider these non-GAAP measures useful and reconciliations of earnings available for distribution and cash available for distribution to net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, see the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" sections of this release.
3 Loan to value is generally based on the initial loan amount divided by the as-is appraised value as of the date the loan was originated or by the current principal amount as of the date of the most recent as-is appraised value. For our CMBS B-Pieces, LTV is based on the weighted average LTV of the underlying loan pool.
4 As of April 27, 2022 and CMBS B-Pieces reflected on an unconsolidated basis.
5 Net income attributable to common stockholders in 2Q 2022 is estimated to be between $7.6MM and $9.3MM. See reconciliations below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are based on management's current expectations, assumptions and beliefs. Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as "anticipate", "estimate", "expect," "intend," "may", "should" and similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's business and industry in general, the Company's performance during turbulent environments and ability to create attractive financing opportunities and second quarter 2022 guidance, including net income, EAD and CAD. They are not guarantees of future results and forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement, including the ultimate duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the effectiveness of actions taken, or actions that may be taken, by governmental authorities to contain the outbreak or treat its impact, as well as those described in greater detail in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly those described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and are encouraged to review the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and the Company's other filings with the SEC for a more complete discussion of risks and other factors that could affect any forward-looking statement. The statements made herein speak only as of the date of this press release and except as required by law, the Company does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. A "non-GAAP financial measure" is defined as a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of income, balance sheets or statements of cash flows of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures used within this press release are earnings available for distribution ("EAD") and cash available for distribution ("CAD"). EAD has replaced our prior presentation of Core Earnings. In addition, Core Earnings results from prior reporting periods have been relabeled EAD. In line with evolving industry practices, we believe EAD more accurately reflects the principal purpose of the measure than the term Core Earnings and will serve as a useful indicator for investors in evaluating our performance and our long-term ability to pay distributions.

EAD is defined as net income (loss) attributable to our common stockholders computed in accordance with GAAP, including net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests and realized gains and losses not otherwise included in net income (loss), excluding any unrealized gains or losses or other similar non-cash items that are included in net income (loss) for the applicable reporting period, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income (loss), or in net income (loss) and adding back amortization of stock-based compensation. We use EAD to evaluate our performance which excludes the effects of certain GAAP adjustments and transactions that we believe are not indicative of our current operations and to assess our long-term ability to pay distributions. We believe providing EAD as a supplement to GAAP net income (loss) to our investors is helpful to their assessment of our performance and our long-term ability to pay distributions. We also use EAD as a component of the management fee paid to our manager. EAD does not represent net income or cash flows from operating activities and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income, an indication of our GAAP cash flows from operating activities, a measure of our liquidity or an indication of funds available for our cash needs. Our computation of EAD may not be comparable to EAD reported by other REITs.

We calculate CAD by adjusting EAD by adding back amortization of premiums, amortization and depreciation and amortization of deferred financing costs and by removing accretion of discounts and non-cash items, such as stock dividends. We use CAD to evaluate our performance and our current ability to pay distributions. We also believe that providing CAD as a supplement to GAAP net income (loss) to our investors is helpful to their assessment of our performance and our current ability to pay distributions. CAD does not represent net income or cash flows from operating activities and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income, an indication of our GAAP cash flows from operating activities, a measure of our liquidity or an indication of funds available for our cash needs. Our computation of CAD may not be comparable to CAD reported by other REITs.
