Atrium Mortgage Investment Corporation Announces Second Quarter Results

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 28, 2021) - Atrium Mortgage Investment Corporation (TSX: AI) (TSX: AI.DB.C) (TSX: AI.DB.D) (TSX: AI.DB.E) today released its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2021.

Highlights

  • Mortgage portfolio of $710.6 million, 4.7% decrease from December 31, 2020

  • High quality mortgage portfolio

    • 84.0% of portfolio in first mortgages

    • 91.9% of portfolio is less than 75% loan to value

    • average loan-to-value is 61.2%

  • Quarterly net income of $10.6 million, up 8.2% from the second quarter of the prior year

  • Quarterly basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.25

"We are pleased with our Q2 and year to date results, and we are on track for a very successful year. The loan quality of the portfolio was stable with previous quarters, and we have repositioned the portfolio to the point where over 99% of our mortgages are now located in our two preferred markets, Ontario and BC. The mortgage portfolio has a conservative average loan to value of 61.2% and a $10 million loan loss provision which will protect the balance in the event of a downturn. In Q2, we were able to mostly offset a record $148 million of repayments with a high level of originations ($93 million). We continue to have a solid pipeline of new loans, although repayments in Q3 may offset most of our new originations. We are encouraged by the increased vaccination rates and lower level of new COVID 19 cases across Canada, but we will remain very diligent in underwriting new loans given the continuing economic threat of emerging variants. While the housing market and industrial sector has remained strong throughout the pandemic, we are cautiously optimistic that the retail and office sectors will begin to recover as the general economy strengthens," said Rob Goodall, CEO of Atrium.
