Bimini Capital Management Announces First Quarter 2020 Results

VERO BEACH, Fla., May 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bimini Capital Management, Inc. (OTCQB:BMNM), (“Bimini Capital,” “Bimini,” or the “Company”), today announced results of operations for the three month period ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net loss of $22.3 million, or $1.92 per common share
  • Book value per share of $1.52
  • Company to discuss results on Friday, May 15, 2020, at 10:00 AM ET

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Beginning in mid-March 2020, the global pandemic associated with the novel coronavirus COVID-19 (“COVID-19”) and related economic conditions began to impact our financial position and results of operations. As a result of the economic, health and market turmoil brought about by COVID-19, the Agency MBS market experienced severe dislocations. This resulted in falling prices of our assets and increased margin calls from our repurchase agreement lenders. In order to maintain our leverage ratio at prudent levels, maintain sufficient cash and liquidity, reduce risk and satisfy margin calls, we sold assets at levels significantly below their carrying values. We timely satisfied all margin calls. The Agency MBS market largely stabilized after the Federal Reserve announced on March 23, 2020 that it would purchase Agency MBS and U.S. Treasuries in the amounts needed to support smooth market functioning. The following summarizes the impact COVID-19 has had on our financial position and results of operations through March 31, 2020.

  • We sold approximately $171.2 million of MBS during the three months ended March 31, 2020, realizing losses of approximately $5.8 million. Substantially all of the realized losses sustained in the quarter were a direct result of the adverse MBS market conditions associated with COVID-19.
  • Our MBS portfolio had a fair market value of approximately $54.4 million as of March 31, 2020, compared to $217.8 million as of December 31, 2019.
  • Our outstanding balances under our repurchase agreement borrowings as of March 31, 2020 were approximately $52.4 million, compared to $210.0 million as of December 31, 2019.
  • We recorded an additional valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets of approximately $11.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020.
  • Our stockholders’ equity was $17.6 million as of March 31, 2020, compared to $40.0 million as of December 31, 2019.

In response to the Shelter in Place order issued in Florida, management has invoked the Company’s Disaster Recovery Plan and its employees are working remotely. Prior planning resulted in the successful implementation of this plan and key operational team members maintain daily communication.

Although the Company cannot estimate the length or gravity of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak at this time, if the pandemic continues, it may continue to have adverse effects on the Company’s results of future operations, financial position, and liquidity in fiscal year 2020.

In addition, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which will provide billions of dollars of relief to individuals, businesses, state and local governments, and the health care system suffering the impact of the pandemic, including mortgage loan forbearance and modification programs to qualifying borrowers who may have difficulty making their loan payments. On April 13, 2020, the Company received $152,000 through the Paycheck Protection Program of the CARES Act in the form of a low interest rate loan.  The Company has evaluated the other provisions of the CARES Act and does not believe it will have material effect on our consolidated financial statements. The Federal Housing Financing Agency (the “FHFA”) has instructed the GSEs on how they will handle servicer advances for loans that back Agency RMBS that enter into forbearance, which should limit prepayments during the forbearance period that could have resulted otherwise. During the forbearance period the Company will continue to receive scheduled principal and interest each month on its Agency RMBS securities.  There can be no assurance as to how, in the long term, these and other actions by the U.S. government will affect the efficiency, liquidity and stability of the financial and mortgage markets. To the extent the financial or mortgage markets do not respond favorably to any of these actions, or such actions do not function as intended, our business, results of operations and financial condition may continue to be materially adversely affected.

Details of First Quarter 2020 Results of Operations

(1) Effective duration is the approximate percentage change in price for a 100 basis point change in rates.  An effective duration of 3.266 indicates that an interest rate increase of 1.0% would be expected to cause a 3.266% decrease in the value of the MBS in the Company’s investment portfolio at March 31, 2020.  An effective duration of 3.196 indicates that an interest rate increase of 1.0% would be expected to cause a 3.196% decrease in the value of the MBS in the Company’s investment portfolio at December 31, 2019. These figures include the structured securities in the portfolio but not the effect of the Company’s hedges. Effective duration quotes for individual investments are obtained from The Yield Book, Inc.

Financing and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had outstanding repurchase obligations of approximately $52.4 million with a net weighted average borrowing rate of 1.26%.  These agreements were collateralized by MBS with a fair value, including accrued interest, of approximately $54.6 million.  At March 31, 2020, the Company’s liquidity was approximately $5.9 million, consisting of unpledged MBS and cash and cash equivalents.

We may pledge more of our structured MBS as part of a repurchase agreement funding, but retain cash in lieu of acquiring additional assets.  In this way, we can, at a modest cost, retain higher levels of cash on hand and decrease the likelihood we will have to sell assets in a distressed market in order to raise cash.  Below is a list of outstanding borrowings under repurchase obligations at March 31, 2020.

In connection with its interest rate risk management strategy, the Company economically hedges a portion of the cost of its repurchase agreement funding and also its junior subordinated notes by entering into derivative financial instrument contracts.  The Company has not elected hedging treatment under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in order to align the accounting treatment of its derivative instruments with the treatment of its portfolio assets under the fair value option election. As such, all gains or losses on these instruments are reflected in earnings for all periods presented.  As of March 31, 2020, such instruments were comprised entirely of Eurodollar futures contracts.

The tables below present information related to outstanding Eurodollar futures contracts at March 31, 2020.

Book Value Per Share

The Company's Book Value Per Share at March 31, 2020 was $1.52.  The Company computes Book Value Per Share by dividing total stockholders' equity by the total number of shares outstanding of the Company's Class A Common Stock. At March 31, 2020, the Company's stockholders’ equity was $17.6 million, with 11,608,555 Class A Common shares outstanding.

Stock Repurchase Plan

On March 26, 2018, the Board of Directors of Bimini Capital Management, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a Stock Repurchase Plan (“Repurchase Plan”).  Pursuant to Repurchase Plan, the Company may purchase up to 500,000 shares of its Class A Common Stock from time to time, subject to certain limitations imposed by Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Share repurchases may be executed through various means, including, without limitation, open market transactions.  The Repurchase Plan does not obligate the Company to purchase any shares. The Repurchase Plan was originally set to expire on November 15, 2018, but it has been extended twice by the Board of Directors, first until November 15, 2019, and then unit November 15, 2020.  The authorization for the Share Repurchase Plan may be terminated, increased or decreased by the Company’s Board of Directors in its discretion at any time.

Since inception of the program through March 31, 2020, the Company repurchased a total of 70,404 shares at an aggregate cost of approximately $166,945, including commissions and fees, for a weighted average price of $2.37 per share.

Management Commentary

Commenting on the first quarter, Robert E. Cauley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The first quarter of 2020 was perhaps the most devastating period ever witnessed in the United States and across the globe in terms of the impact on our health, way of life and particularly economic activity.  The COVID-19 Pandemic that first emerged in China during the fourth quarter of 2019 quickly spread around the globe and threatened the welfare and safety of everyone.  Given the fact the virus causing the pandemic was a novel virus, and therefore no one had an immunity to it, coupled with the ease with which is spread, necessitated drastic action be taken to safeguard society before the COVID-19 respiratory illness could cause health care centers to be hopelessly overwhelmed.  The actions taken, social distancing, shelter in place, among others, had devastating effects on economic activity across the globe.  The effects were first felt in the financial markets including the agency MBS market, which is the sole market we invest in, and the treasury rates market which significantly impacts our portfolio.

“As it became clear economic activity was on the verge of collapse, businesses and investors moved to raise cash as quickly as possible. The resulting selling of financial assets drove prices down quickly and margin calls became numerous, forcing levered investors to reduce leverage.  Assets traded in the most liquid markets or in a gain position were the first to be sold.  The Agency MBS market, the sole market the Company invests in, was one such market that witnessed the first wave of selling (in addition to U.S. Treasuries).  Bimini sold approximately 75% or our MBS portfolio, more than was needed to maintain adequate cash levels. We also reduced our hedge positions materially. In the end, we were left with enough liquidity to allow us to opportunistically redeploy our remaining capital once the market had settled.

“Given the importance of the mortgage market to the U.S. economy, particularly the Agency MBS market, the breakdown of the market prompted the Fed to intervene by, among other things, purchasing more U.S. Treasuries and Agency MBS in an effort to stabilize the market.  While the Fed’s initial steps proved inadequate, eventually, on March 23, 2020, the Fed announced an essentially unlimited asset purchase program for U.S. Treasuries and Agency MBS, including two day settlement periods.  The Fed went on to introduce many other facilities to support additional markets over the following days and weeks.  However, the action on March 23rd stabilized the Agency MBS market and asset prices quickly began to recover.  The Company was able to withstand the disruption to the Agency MBS market, although it did realize approximately $5.8 million of losses on the assets sold and book value on a per share basis was reduced by approximately 56%. At this time, Bimini was able to redeploy capital opportunistically.  Like Bimini, the share prices of all mortgage REIT’s were severely depressed in early April.  Bimini opted to purchase additional shares of Orchid Island at a substantial discount to March 31, 2020 book value.  The potential return on the shares exceeded returns available in the MBS markets simply because we could acquire exposure to the same market at a price that reflects the substantial discount to Orchid’s March 31, 2020 book value.  Moving forward, we anticipate the markets to slowly recover, funding levels to be very low and MBS investments – either via direct investment in securities or indirectly via shares of Orchid, to remain attractive.

“Orchid Island realized a 25.8% reduction in its shareholders equity during the first quarter and this will lower our management fees in coming months.  Per recent public disclosure Orchid has indicated its shareholder equity has partially recovered from the level as of March 31, 2020.  We welcome this news.  To the extent Orchid recovers further and is able to continue to grow its capital base in the future we will see our management fee revenues increase.  We hope to continue to execute on our strategy of organically growing our investment portfolio in an effort to utilize our tax NOL’s that expire later this decade.  It appears that now that we and Orchid have stabilized, we will be able to generate sufficient revenues to cover our costs and therefore will be able to resume execution of our strategy.  The events related to the COVID-19 pandemic have set us back, but have not precluded us from continuing on our intended path.”
