Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

6:00 am ET July 29, 2022 (BusinessWire) Print

---Subsequent to end of second quarter-

--Declared third quarter 2022 dividend of $0.33 per common share and a supplemental dividend of $0.02 per common share

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE:ACRE), a specialty finance company engaged in originating and investing in commercial real estate assets, reported generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") net income of $10.0 million or $0.20 per diluted common share and Distributable Earnings(1) of $19.2 million or $0.38 per diluted common share for the second quarter of 2022.

"We generated another strong quarter of earnings that were driven by incremental investment activity and positive sensitivity of our floating rate loans to rising interest rates," said Bryan Donohoe, Chief Executive Officer of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation. "We continue to expect to fully cover our regular and supplemental dividends from our Distributable Earnings for the full year."

"With a 2.4x debt-to-equity leverage ratioas of the second quarter of 2022 combined with a strong liquidity position, we believe we are well positioned to navigate the current capital market environment," said Tae-Sik Yoon, Chief Financial Officer of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation. "Our net interest income should continue to benefit from rising interest rates as 98% of our loans are floating rate while 36% of our liabilities are fixed rate or hedged."

SCHEDULE I

Reconciliation of Net Income to Non-GAAP Distributable Earnings

Distributable Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that helps the Company evaluate its financial performance excluding the effects of certain transactions and GAAP adjustments that it believes are not necessarily indicative of its current loan origination portfolio and operations. To maintain the Company's REIT status, the Company is generally required to annually distribute to its stockholders substantially all of its taxable income. The Company believes the disclosure of Distributable Earnings provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's ability to pay dividends, which is one of the principal reasons the Company believes investors invest in the Company. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Distributable Earnings is defined as net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding non-cash equity compensation expense, the incentive fees the Company pays to its Manager (Ares Commercial Real Estate Management LLC), depreciation and amortization (to the extent that any of the Company's target investments are structured as debt and the Company forecloses on any properties underlying such debt), any unrealized gains, losses or other non-cash items recorded in net income (loss) for the period, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income or loss, or in net income (loss), one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and certain non-cash charges after discussions between the Company's Manager and the Company's independent directors and after approval by a majority of the Company's independent directors. Loan balances that are deemed to be uncollectible are written off as a realized loss and are included in Distributable Earnings. Distributable Earnings is aligned with the calculation of "Core Earnings," which is defined in the Management Agreement and is used to calculate the incentive fees the Company pays to its Manager.

Reconciliation of net income attributable to common stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Distributable Earnings is set forth in the table below for the three months and twelve months ended June 30, 2022 ($ in thousands):
