First Quarter 2022 Results

“Despite elevated volatility, soaring interest rates, and weakness in most equity and fixed income markets, Ellington Financial experienced only a moderate book value decline in the first quarter, thanks to our hedging strategies and diversified portfolio, together with the outperformance of several of our credit strategies,” said Laurence Penn, Chief Executive Officer and President.

“We continued to reap significant benefits from our loan portfolios in the first quarter, as they not only generated positive returns, but thanks to their short duration, they also continued to supply us with a steady stream of recyclable capital through paydowns and payoffs. Also during the quarter, we executed on a series of strategic financing transactions which, combined with the capital returned through portfolio paydowns, have provided us with significant dry powder to deploy, just as we see reinvestment yields rising rapidly and pricing dislocations emerging in various sectors.

“On the final day of the quarter, we successfully completed a $210 million 5-year senior unsecured note offering, which was NAIC-1 rated and priced at a spread of 3.32% to the 5-year Treasury. The offering was timely, as the cost of capital on the notes is significantly lower than the returns we are seeing on new investments. As a result, we expect this offering to be accretive to earnings in the months ahead. In addition, through April we have completed three loan securitizations so far this year, which has locked in additional long-term non-mark-to-market financing on both our non-QM mortgage portfolio and our consumer loan portfolio.

“Moving forward, our strong balance sheet and ample liquidity should allow us to capitalize on the many highly attractive investment opportunities we are seeing, particularly in our proprietary loan pipelines. Furthermore, our loan originator affiliates, with the support of Ellington Financial behind them, should now be in a prime position to grow their market share and visibility, as some of their competitors have been forced to scale back operations in the face of losses triggered by rapidly rising interest rates.”

Financial Results

The Company’s total long credit portfolio3 grew by 11% in the first quarter, to $2.301 billion as of March 31, 2022. The quarter-over-quarter increase was driven primarily by continued growth of its non-QM, residential transition, and small balance commercial mortgage loan strategies. The Company’s portfolio of consumer loans declined sequentially due to the successful completion of a loan securitization, while opportunistic sales of CLOs decreased the size of that portfolio. Over the same period, the Company’s total long Agency RMBS portfolio decreased by 11% to $1.502 billion, driven by net sales, paydowns, and mark-to-market declines.

The Company’s overall debt-to-equity ratio, adjusted for unsettled purchases and sales, increased to 3.2:1 as of March 31, 2022, as compared to 2.8:1 as of December 31, 2021, driven primarily by increased borrowings on its larger credit portfolio and by the senior unsecured note issuance on the final day of the quarter. Similarly, the Company’s recourse debt-to-equity ratio, adjusted for unsettled purchases and sales, also increased over the course of the quarter, to 2.3:12 from 2.0:1.

The Company’s credit strategy generated total gross income of $16.5 million, or $0.28 per share, while its Agency strategy generated a gross loss of $(20.1) million or $(0.34) per share.

During the quarter, the Company’s CMBS, non-Agency RMBS, residential re-performing loan, CLO, and corporate debt and equity strategies had the highest returns on allocated equity, inclusive of related hedges. Meanwhile, strong net interest income4 drove positive results in its short-duration loan portfolios, including small balance commercial mortgage loans, residential transition loans, and consumer loans. In addition, the Company’s portfolio of retained non-QM tranches appreciated during the quarter, driven by substantial appreciation of its non-QM interest-only securities, as rising mortgage rates led to lower actual and projected prepayment speeds. The Company also had significant net gains on its interest rate hedges.

In contrast, rapidly rising interest rates and widening yield spreads generated significant net unrealized losses on the Company’s unsecuritized non-QM loans, while also compressing gain-on-sale margins for the Company’s loan originator affiliates. LendSure, while still profitable for the quarter, revised downward its earnings projections for 2022, and Longbridge generated a net loss for the quarter. As a result, the Company experienced a significant unrealized loss on its strategic investments in loan originators. Importantly, Longbridge’s net loss was due to a reduction in the value of its MSR portfolio, whereas its origination segment was still profitable during the quarter.

The first quarter was challenging for leveraged Agency RMBS portfolios. Volatility increased, interest rates rose sharply, and the yield curve flattened significantly, as the market reacted to revised expectations for the Federal Reserve, which signaled a faster interest rate hiking cycle and an accelerated pace of balance sheet runoff. Rapidly rising inflation and geopolitical uncertainty further contributed to the volatility, and the MOVE index, which measures interest rate volatility, reached its highest level since the 2020 COVID liquidity crisis.

Agency RMBS experienced significant duration extension with interest rates materially higher, while the volatility drove significant widening in yield spreads. Agency RMBS prices declined sharply during the quarter, and Agency RMBS significantly underperformed U.S. Treasury securities and interest rate swaps. As a result, net realized and unrealized losses on the Company’s Agency RMBS exceeded net interest income and net realized and unrealized gains on interest rate hedges, and the Company had a significant net loss for the quarter in its Agency strategy, on a mark-to-market basis.

Since the Company’s specified pools are relatively seasoned they offer both prepayment protection and extension protection relative to their TBA counterparts, which are now beginning to include newer issue, more prepayment-sensitive pools. While the surge in mortgage rates during the quarter caused the value of prepayment protection to fall substantially, it also enhanced the value of extension protection. After taking into account these partially offsetting factors, pay-ups for the Company’s existing specified pool portfolio declined over the course of the quarter. However, the Company net sold pools during the quarter, and these net sales generally consisted of pools with lower payups. Overall, average pay-ups for the Company’s specified pool portfolio declined only slightly quarter-over-quarter, to 0.59% as of March 31, 2022, as compared to 0.82% as of December 31, 2021.

During the quarter, the Company continued to hedge interest rate risk through the use of interest rate swaps and short positions in TBAs, U.S. Treasury securities, and futures. Additionally, the Company continued to maintain a long TBA portfolio concentrated in lower coupons.
