"We are off to a very good start in 2022, after achieving record earnings in calendar 2021. We ended the first quarter with assets of $824.9 million and mortgages of $791.4 million, both being the highest recorded in Atrium's history. The strength of our underwriting team continued to show, with mortgage advances of $140 million in Q1, the second highest in our history. Our $0.25 earnings per share were also at near record levels, and the quality of our loan book is outstanding. This loan quality is exemplified by very low arrears levels, 98.3% of the mortgage portfolio being conventional mortgages (defined as less than 75% loan to value), and the portfolio loan to value average being only 61.1%. So we are well positioned to outperform for the balance of 2022," said Rob Goodall, CEO of Atrium.
