CIFC Corp. Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CIFC Corp. (NASDAQ: DFR) ("CIFC" or the "Company") announced its results of operations for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Highlights

  • Adjusted Earnings Before Taxes ("AEBT") for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $6.2 million compared to $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2012.
  • GAAP net income attributable to CIFC Corp. was $0.7 million, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss attributable to CIFC Corp. of $8.5 million, or $0.42 per fully diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012.
  • On September 24, 2012, the Company closed a five year strategic relationship with General Electric Capital Corporation's ("GE Capital") Bank Loan Group.  The Company believes that this strategic relationship could provide CIFC with significant new opportunities to create new CIFC-managed investment products, including those involving GE Capital loan originations and/or vehicles for which GE Capital provides financing.  Further, partnering with GE Capital positions the Company for unique opportunities given GE Capital's strength as a leading corporate lender coupled with CIFC's loan asset management platform.
  • On July 26, 2012, the Company successfully closed a new collateralized loan obligation ("CLO"), CIFC Funding 2012-I, Ltd. ("CIFC 2012-I"). As of September 30, 2012, CIFC 2012-I had AUM of $447.2 million.
  • Subsequent to the quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company successfully launched a new CLO, CIFC Funding 2012-II, Ltd. ("CIFC 2012-II"), which closed on November 9, 2012 and represents approximately $725.0 million of additional CLO AUM.

Executive Overview

"The third quarter was particularly exciting for us. We continue to successfully launch and close new loan funds, with CIFC Funding 2012-I closing in the second quarter followed by CIFC Funding 2012-II, one of the largest post credit crisis CLOs in the market, closing earlier this month," said Peter Gleysteen, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"In addition, we successfully closed the previously-announced five year strategic alliance with GE Capital's Bank Loan Group, and we are now actively pursuing new business opportunities with their team."

"The increase of the third quarter's AEBT from the second quarter was primarily attributable to a few factors, including an initial advisory fee payment and an equity distribution on a newly closed fund and an incentive management fee received from a CLO which reached its incentive management fee hurdle during the quarter."

AEBT (Non-GAAP)

AEBT is a non-GAAP financial measure that management utilizes to analyze performance and manage operations. This non-GAAP financial measure was developed by management after the April 2011 merger (the "Merger") between the Company and Commercial Industrial Finance Corp. ("Legacy CIFC") given the Company's decision to focus on its core asset management business. The Company believes AEBT reflects the nature and substance of the business and the economic results driven by investment advisory fee revenues from the management of client funds, which are primarily CLOs.

To derive AEBT, the Company starts with the GAAP statement of operations, deconsolidates all of the CLOs and collateralized debt obligations ("CDOs") consolidated by the Company (the "Consolidated CLOs") and then eliminates and adjusts certain other items. A summary description of AEBT is included in Exhibit 1.1 to this press release and a detailed calculation of AEBT and a reconciliation between GAAP net income (loss) attributable to CIFC Corp. and AEBT is set forth in Exhibits 1.3 to 1.7 to this press release.

AEBT may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as it is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore may be defined differently by other companies. In addition, AEBT should be considered an addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.

The discussion of AEBT and GAAP results herein focuses on the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the second quarter of 2012 as management determined the comparison to the most recent quarterly period is more useful than comparisons to prior year periods. Please refer to the Company's September 30, 2012 10-Q filing for discussions of the comparative results to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Net Revenues

Investment Advisory Fees

During the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, the Company earned investment advisory fees from its management of CLOs, CDOs and other investment products. Investment advisory fees from CLOs and CDOs totaled $13.4 million and $12.1 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively. The increase of investment advisory fees was primarily due to the third quarter collection of (i) the first payment of subordinated investment advisory fees for a recently closed CLO (while most CLOs pay us advisory fees quarterly, a CLO's initial payment may relate to a period longer than one quarter), (ii) an incentive management fee payment from a CLO which reached its incentive management fee hurdle during the quarter, and (iii) a one-time deferred management fee payment.

Investment advisory fees from CLOs comprised 94% and 93% of the total investment advisory fees the Company earned during the three months ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively.

Net Investment and Interest Income

Net investment and interest income totaled $1.8 million and $0.9 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively. The increase in net investment and interest income is primarily due to the receipt of the first subordinated note distribution of $1.0 million on the Company's investment in a recently closed CLO. While most CLOs make distributions quarterly, a CLO's initial distribution often relates to a period longer than one quarter.

Expenses

Expenses totaled $9.3 million and $10.5 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively. The decrease was primarily the result of decreases in (i) other general and administrative expenses of $0.7 million, (ii) professional services of $0.5 million and (iii) compensation and benefits of $0.4 million. The decrease in other general administrative expenses is primarily driven by certain one-time technology charges during the second quarter. Additionally, the second quarter included the expenses related to the annual equity awards for the independent members of the board of directors.  The decline in professional services is primarily driven by the second quarter inclusion of expenses related to the creation of certain new investment products and recruiting fees which did not recur in the third quarter. These decreases were partially offset by increases in occupancy and depreciation and amortization expense of $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively, resulting from the relocation of the corporate headquarters to a larger space in the same building during the third quarter.

Net income attributable to CIFC Corp. was $0.7 million, or $0.03 per fully diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to a net loss attributable to CIFC Corp. of $8.5 million, or $0.42 per fully diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  The increase in net income attributable to CIFC Corp. is primarily the result of reductions in expenses and income tax expense, partially offset by increased losses within net other income (expense) and gain (loss).

Total expenses decreased by $4.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  In addition to the expense items already discussed previously within the AEBT section above, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $1.8 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 to fully impair the intangible asset associated with a management contract for a CLO which was called for redemption during the period.

Net other income (expense) and gain (loss) decreased by $5.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012. This decrease is primarily the result of fluctuations in fair value of contingent liabilities that resulted in increased unrealized losses in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and strategic transaction expenses related to the strategic relationship with GE Capital during the same period.

The net results of the Consolidated CLOs are included in net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests (which generally is comprised of the debt and subordinated note investments of third parties in these CLOs and CDOs) on the consolidated statement of operations.  These results are primarily driven by the changes in fair value of the assets and liabilities of the Consolidated CLOs.  These results are not indicative of the performance of the consolidated CLOs and CDOs or the cash distributions received by investors from such Consolidated CLOs.

AUM

Investment advisory fees earned from investment products the Company manages on behalf of third party investors are the Company's primary source of revenue. These fees typically consist of management fees based on the account's assets and, in some cases, incentive fees based on the returns the Company generates for the account.

(1)  AUM numbers generally reflect the aggregate principal or notional balance of the collateral and, in some cases, the cash balance held by the CLOs and CDOs and are as of the date of the last trustee report received for each CLO and CDO prior to the respective AUM date.

AUM increased during the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012, primarily as a result of the addition of four "Navigator CLOs" acquired from GE Capital as part of our strategic relationship and the closing of CIFC 2012-I.  The Navigator CLOs and CIFC 2012-I increased AUM by $718.5 million and $447.2 million, respectively, as of September 30, 2012.  These increases were partially offset by declines in AUM for certain CLOs and CDOs which have reached the end of their contractual "reinvestment periods", after which periods capital is returned to investors as assets pay down.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2012, total liquidity was comprised of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $63.0 million. The decrease of $18.0 million in cash and cash equivalents from the June 30, 2012 balance is primarily attributable to investments the Company made during the period.  This included a $25.1 million investment in a warehouse ($13.6 million in cash and $11.5 million in loans) and a $9.0 million investment in CIFC 2012-I.  Additionally, the Company made a $4.5 million cash payment related to the closing of the strategic relationship with GE Capital.  These cash outflows were partially offset by operating cash inflows.

Exhibit 1.1

AEBT is a non-GAAP financial measure that management utilizes to analyze performance and manage operations. The Company believes AEBT reflects the nature and substance of the business and the economic results driven by investment advisory fee revenues from the management of client funds, which are primarily CLOs.  The Company is required under GAAP to consolidate certain variable interest entities, which include certain of the CLOs the Company manages. This required consolidation results in a presentation that materially differs from the way management views the business and as a result management developed AEBT, a non-GAAP metric for measuring the performance of its core business.

To derive AEBT, the Company starts with the GAAP statement of operations, deconsolidates all of the CLOs and CDOs consolidated by the Company (the "Consolidated CLOs") and then eliminates and adjusts certain other items. A detailed calculation of AEBT and a reconciliation between GAAP net income (loss) attributable to CIFC Corp. and AEBT is set forth in Exhibits 1.3 to 1.7 to this press release and a summary description is set forth below.

AEBT includes the following:

1.  Investment advisory fees net of any fee sharing arrangements;

a.  In accordance with the Company's revenue recognition policy, senior management fees are recognized as revenue on an accrual basis, while subordinated and incentive management fees are recognized on a cash basis;

2.  Net investment and interest income as follows:

a.  Distributions on the Company's investments in CLO subordinated notes (also known as "CLO equity");

b.  Interest income on the Company's investments in CLO debt investments;

c.  Net interest income from balance sheet investments (which included RMBS until the liquidation of that portfolio);

d.  Net investment and interest income from warehouses established from time-to-time to facilitate closing new CLOs or other funds and gains (losses) on assets within such warehouses, determined and accrued upon formalizing a transaction (not upon settlement);

e.  Realized gains (losses) from dispositions of core assets;

3.  Routine expenses directly attributable to generating revenues;

4.  Corporate interest expense;

5.  Depreciation and amortization expenses of fixed assets.

AEBT excludes the following:

1.  Realized and unrealized gains (losses) on dispositions of non-core assets;

2.  Unrealized gains (losses) on core assets;

3.  Non-recurring operating expenses, and one-time strategic transaction expenses (such as expenses related to the strategic relationship with GE Capital's Bank Loan Group and the Merger);

4.  Non-cash expenses such as amortization and impairment of intangible assets;

5.  Income taxes.

(4)  Net investment and interest income in 2012 quarterly periods are significantly lower than that in 2011 quarterly periods due to the Company's exiting certain non-core activities, which process was substantially completed during the first quarter of 2012.

(5)  The Company refined its definition of AEBT to include warehouse net investment and interest income during the fourth quarter of 2011. As such, the previously disclosed AEBT for the third quarter of 2011 has been recast to include such net investment and interest income.

(A)  Represents AEBT.

(1)   Adjustments to eliminate the impact of the Consolidated CLOs.

(2)   Adjustments to reflect AEBT net of fee sharing arrangements. During 2012 the Company eliminated certain fee sharing arrangements relating to CLOs managed by CypressTree Investment Management, LLC, a subsidiary of the Company acquired by Legacy CIFC in 2010, resulting in the Company retaining more of the investment advisory fees received from these CLOs. In order to eliminate these fee sharing arrangements, the Company made payments of $0.3 million, $3.0 million and $2.9 million during three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, respectively.

(3)   The establishment of interest income for distributions received on the Company's investments in the DFR Middle Market CLO, Ltd. ("DFR MM CLO"), interest income and realized gains (losses) underlying the Company's total return swap warehouse ("Warehouse TRS") and realized gains (losses) from the on-balance sheet warehouse. Through February 7, 2012, the Company owned 100% of the subordinated notes of the DFR MM CLO and was required to consolidate the DFR MM CLO. As management views the economic impact of the Company's investments in the DFR MM CLO as the distributions received on those investments, the calculation of AEBT eliminates the GAAP net income (loss) on the DFR MM CLO (included within Net Results of Consolidated Variable Interest Entities) and includes the distributions received on the Company's investments in the DFR MM CLO. As management views the economic impact of the Warehouse TRS to be similar to a traditional warehouse borrowing arrangement, the calculation of AEBT eliminates the GAAP net income (loss) on the Warehouse TRS (included within Net Results of Consolidated Variable Interest Entities) and includes the net interest income and gains (losses) underlying the Warehouse TRS. This excludes a loss of $1.4 million determined and accrued upon formalizing a transaction (not upon settlement) which was included in GAAP net income during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and within AEBT during the three months ended December 31, 2011.

(4)   Elimination of intangible asset amortization.

(5)   Reclassification of corporate interest expense from other income (expense) and gain (loss) to expenses.

(6)   Elimination of net gains (losses) on the Company's proprietary investments and items (primarily non-recurring in nature) which are included within Other, net.

(7)   Elimination of strategic transactions expenses.

(8)   Elimination of income tax expense (benefit).

(9)   Elimination of impairment of intangible assets.

(10)  Elimination of restructuring charges.

(11)  Adjustment establishes interest expense underlying the Warehouse TRS.

(12)  Elimination of the benefit of the insurance settlement received related to the reimbursement of legal fees  associated with the Company's settlement with the SEC, which was previously disclosed in the March 31, 2011 10-Q filing. In addition, eliminates certain professional fees related to the sale of the Company's investments in the DFR MM CLO.

(13)  Elimination of the gain on the sale of the Company's rights to manage Gillespie CLO PLC.

(14)  Elimination of the GAAP net income (loss) related to the DFR MM CLO and the Warehouse TRS.
