____________________________________________________________

(1)

Reflects the impact of consolidating the assets, liabilities and non-controlling interests of Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2017-D ("2017-D"), which is 50% owned by third-party institutional investors as of March 31, 2022.

(2)

Interest income on investment in debt securities and beneficial interests issued by our joint ventures is net of servicing fees.

(3)

Net decrease in the net present value of expected credit losses represents the net decrease to the allowance resulting from changes in actual and expected cash flows during the quarter. It represents the net increase of the present value of the expected cash flows in excess of contractual cash flows offset by any incremental provision expense on the Mortgage loan pools and Beneficial interests. The decrease is calculated at the pool level for Mortgage loans and at the security level for Beneficial interests. To the extent a pool or Beneficial interest has an associated allowance, the decrease in expected credit losses is recorded in the period in which the change occurs, otherwise it is recognized prospectively as an increase in yield.

(4)

Total revenue includes net interest income, income from equity method investments and other income.

(5)

Average equity includes the effect of an aggregate of $115.1 million of preferred stock.

(6)

Average daily cash balance includes cash and cash equivalents, and excludes cash held in trust.

(7)

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the average daily cash balance excludes $9.4 million of funds on deposit in a non-interest bearing account which closed on August 20, 2021. Including the $9.4 million on deposit, average daily cash was $94.4 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the average daily cash balance excludes $22.1 million, $17.5 million and $9.4 million of funds on deposit in a non-interest bearing account which amounts closed on June 17, 2021, June 24, 2021 and August 20, 2021, respectively. Including the aggregate of $49.0 million on deposit, average daily cash was $125.7 million.

Our consolidated net income attributable to our common stockholders was $3.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to $7.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

Our net interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 prior to the net decrease in the present value of expected credit losses was $14.6 million, an increase of $0.4 million over the prior quarter. Gross interest income was relatively flat quarter over quarter. Our interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 decreased $0.4 million compared to the prior quarter primarily as a result of calling Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2019-C during the fourth quarter of 2021.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a $4.0 million decrease in the net present value of expected future credit losses primarily driven by higher than expected payments received on our mortgage loan portfolio during the quarter. We generally acquire loans at a discount and record an allowance for expected credit losses at acquisition. We update the allowance quarterly based on changing cash flow expectations in accordance with the current expected credit losses accounting standard, otherwise known as CECL.

Our Other loss/income line includes a $4.0 million, or $0.17 per share, impairment of our Investment in Beneficial Interests in Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2018-D and 2018-G ("2018-D and -G"). The two trusts were redeemed in the second quarter of 2022 and the underlying mortgage loans were re-securitized in Ajax Mortgage Loan Trust 2022-A ("2022-A"). (See Subsequent events, below.) Although we continue to own approximately the same interest in the underlying mortgage loans and related cash flows, we account for our beneficial interests as legal securities. The beneficial interests were settled in the second quarter through receipt of a combination of the beneficial interest in 2022-A and cash received from the sale of the underlying loans to 2022-A. Loan prices have undergone significant disruption since year end and the decline in loan prices versus December 31, 2021 resulted in lower than expected current cash proceeds at redemption. As a result we recognized an impairment loss in the quarter ended March 31, 2022. The impairment is effectively a cash flow timing difference. We expect to recover the impairment as accretion on the beneficial interest in 2022-A as the underlying expected cash flows remain unchanged. By comparison, when we re-securitize our wholly owned secured borrowings, we do not recognize any gain or loss because the transaction is treated as a refinancing through the redemption and issuance of the notes and the beneficial interest is not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet as a separate legal security. We only record an impairment on loans carried on our balance sheet if the carrying value exceeds fair value. Because we acquire loans at a discount, at the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the carrying value of our loans remained below fair value.

We recorded a loss from our investments in affiliates of $63 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to a gain of $89 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2021. The loss is primarily due to the flow through impact of mark to market losses of $132 thousand on shares of our stock held by our Manager and our Servicer. We account for our investments in our Manager and our Servicer using the equity method of accounting.

Our operating expenses decreased on a quarter over quarter basis by $0.4 million due to $0.6 million in lower tax consulting and compliance fees. In the first quarter we increased amortization of the warrant put option liability by $0.4 million. The warrant put option is callable beginning in July 2023.

We recorded $0.2 million in impairments on our REO held-for-sale portfolio in real estate operating expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 primarily due to the costs of holding the properties. We sold three properties in the first quarter and three properties were added to REO held-for-sale through foreclosures. Limited housing inventory has accelerated our REO liquidation timelines while we are continuing to experience some delays in foreclosure proceedings relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We ended the quarter with a book value of $15.95 per common share, compared to a book value per common share of $15.92 for the quarter ended December 31, 2021. The increase in book value is due to the anti-dilutive effect of our convertible senior notes, offset by a reduction in common equity from net fair value decreases of $9.8 million primarily from joint venture debt securities, or approximately $0.42 per share.

Our taxable income for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was $0.49 per share, compared to $0.40 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

We collected $85.3 million of cash during the first quarter as a result of loan payments, loan payoffs, sales of REO, payoff of securities and cash collections on our securities portfolio to end the quarter with $70.7 million in cash and cash equivalents. Cash collections of $66.6 million were derived from our mortgage loan and REO portfolios as a result of loan payments, loan payoffs, and sales of REO during the quarter, and $18.7 million were derived from interest and principal payments on investments in debt securities and beneficial interests.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, we invested an additional $6.1 million in Gaea to increase our total investment to $25.5 million, or 22.2%. In addition to common stock, we received 371,103 warrants to purchase additional shares at $16.41 per share for a two year period following the date that the common stock commences trading on a trading market. We continue to account for our investment using the equity method of accounting.

We purchased four NPLs with UPB of $1.0 million at 56.7% of property value. These loans were acquired and included on our consolidated balance sheet for a weighted average of 38 days of the quarter.

Subsequent Events

On April 14, 2022, with an accredited institutional investor we refinanced our 2018-D and 2018-G joint ventures into 2022-A and retained $47.7 million of varying classes of agency rated securities and equity. We acquired 23.28% of the securities and trust certificates from the trust. 2022-A acquired 811 RPLs and NPLs with UPB of $215.5 million and an aggregate property value of $518.8 million. The AAA through A rated securities represent 71.9% of the UPB of the underlying mortgage loans and carry a weighted average coupon of 3.47%. This is the first fully rated securitization structure to include a substantial amount of NPLs. Approximately 33.9% of loan UPB in 2022-A was 60 days or more delinquent. Based on the structure of the transaction we will not consolidate 2022-A under U.S. GAAP. Our percentage ownership in 2022-A is approximately the same as our combined prior investments in 2018-D and -G.

On May 5, 2022, our Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.26 per share to be paid on May 31, 2022 to stockholders of record as of May 16, 2022.

Since quarter end, we have acquired two residential RPLs in two transactions from two different sellers with aggregate UPB of $0.2 million, and one NPL in one transaction from a single seller with UPB of $0.2 million. The purchase price of the RPLs was 93.1% of UPB and 44.3% of the estimated market value of the underlying collateral of $0.4 million. The purchase price of the NPL was 94.0% of UPB and 46.2% of the estimated market value of the underlying collateral of $0.3 million.

We have agreed to acquire, subject to due diligence, 26 residential RPLs in seven transactions, and 27 NPLs in one transaction, with aggregate UPB of $6.7 million and $3.9 million, respectively. The purchase price of the residential RPLs is 97.2% of UPB and 42.6% of the estimated market value of the underlying collateral of $15.3 million. The purchase price of the NPLs is 102.0% of UPB and 46.3% of the estimated market value of the underlying collateral of $8.6 million.

Net decrease in the net present value of expected credit losses represents the net decrease to the allowance resulting from changes in actual and expected cash flows during the quarters ended March 31, 2022, December 31, 2021, September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021. It represents the net increase of the present value of the expected cash flows in excess of contractual cash flows offset by any incremental provision expense on the Mortgage loan pools and Beneficial interests. The decrease is calculated at the pool level for Mortgage loans and at the security level for Beneficial interests. To the extent a pool or Beneficial interest has an associated allowance, the decrease in expected credit losses is recorded in the period in which the change occurs, otherwise it is recognized prospectively as an increase in yield.
