Highlights

  • Mortgage portfolio of $765.7 million, 2.7% increase from December 31, 2020

  • High quality mortgage portfolio

    • 87.8% of portfolio in first mortgages

    • 96.0% of portfolio is less than 75% loan to value

    • average loan-to-value is 60.9%

  • Quarterly net income of $10.6 million, up 11.4% from the third quarter of the prior year

  • Quarterly basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.25

"We are very pleased with our Q3 and year to date results, and we are on track for a very successful year. We had one of our strongest quarters ever for loan originations at $118.6 million, with Ontario contributing 62% of funded loans and BC contributing 38%. The BC portfolio has grown significantly from $164 million at the beginning of the year, to $245 million today. The Ontario team has also been very productive, but there has been much more loan turnover in that province. Overall, the Atrium portfolio grew to a record $766 million by the end of the quarter. While we expect a higher level of repayments in Q4, we do have a solid pipeline of new loans. The mortgage portfolio remains defensively positioned with a modest average loan to value of 60.9%, and 96% of the portfolio being conventional mortgages (less than 75% loan to value)," said Rob Goodall, CEO of Atrium.
