Company Release - 11/6/2014 6:00 AM ET

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 

THIRD QUARTER 2014 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Loan origination volume of $3.1 billion
  • Total revenues of $98.1 million
  • GAAP net income of $15.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $20.7 million
  • Servicing portfolio of $41.2 billion at September 30, 2014

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the "Company") reported today total revenues of $98.1 million for the third quarter 2014, up 33% from $73.7 million for the third quarter 2013.  GAAP net income and adjusted net income2 for the third quarter 2014 were the same at $15.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share. This is compared to third quarter 2013 GAAP net income of $8.1 million, or $0.23 per diluted share and adjusted net income of $8.7 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2014 was $20.7 million compared to $10.9 million for the third quarter 2013, a 90% increase.

"This quarter marks the highest loan origination volume in the history of Walker & Dunlop and reflects the dramatic growth and market leadership position we have gained over the past several years," commented Walker & Dunlop Chairman and CEO Willy Walker.  "Our originations for the quarter increased by 77% year over year, outpacing the growth of the overall commercial real estate market that saw originations increase by 16% during the same period. Of our $3.1 billion volume, we originated $2.3 billion of loans with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, up dramatically over previous quarters, driving a 33% increase in total revenues to $98.1 million.  We continue to see pressure on servicing fees in this competitive lending environment, yet due to the volume of loan originations and growth in servicing fees, net income almost doubled from the same quarter last year to $15.1 million.  Servicing income surpassed $25.0 million this quarter for the first time ever due to the aggregate portfolio now exceeding $41.2 billion.  Adjusted EBITDA was up 90% to $20.7 million, benefitting from increased servicing fees and interest income from our balance sheet lending.  It is wonderful to see our lending with the GSEs grow so dramatically while watching the investments we have made over the past several years start to impact our financial results."

"As we look forward," Walker continued, "the recent acquisition of Johnson Capital will add 34 loan originators to the Walker & Dunlop platform and more than double the size of our Capital Markets group.  Commercial loan maturities are set to increase over 70% between 2014 and 2015, and we will continue to focus on expanding our platform to capture as much deal flow over the coming years as we possibly can.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are back as the dominant sources of capital to the multifamily industry, and our market leadership position with the GSEs is showing its value daily.  We will continue to expand our loan origination platform while also scaling our GSE, HUD, balance sheet, and CMBS lending operations.  It is this combination of access to deal flow and lending expertise that makes our business model so profitable and unique.  2015 is going to be a very active year, and we have positioned our firm extremely well to be a major provider of credit to the commercial real estate industry."  

OPERATING RESULTS

TOTAL REVENUES were $98.1 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to $73.7 million for the third quarter 2013, a 33% increase. The increase was driven by the increase in loan originations and servicing fees. Within the components of revenue, mortgage banking gains increased 40% to $63.3 million, servicing fees increased 9% to $25.0 million, net warehouse interest income increased 183% to $5.0 million, and other revenue increased 37% to $3.6 million.

GAINS FROM MORTGAGE BANKING ACTIVITIES for the third quarter 2014 were $63.3 million compared to $45.3 million for the third quarter 2013, a 40% increase.  LOAN ORIGINATION FEES were $35.4 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to $23.8 million for the third quarter 2013, a 49% increase. GAINS ATTRIBUTABLE TO MORTGAGE SERVICING RIGHTS ("MSRs") were $27.8 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to $21.5 million for the third quarter 2013, a 30% increase.  Competition and an increase in average loan size resulted in lower average servicing fees on Fannie Mae originations, which tempered the volume-driven increase in gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights.

TOTAL EXPENSES were $73.6 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to GAAP total expenses of $60.9 million and adjusted total expenses2 of $59.9 million for the third quarter 2013.  The increase in total expenses was due to an increase in variable compensation related to the record loan origination volume and an increase in bonus expense based on the year over year improvement in company performance, an increase in interest expense on corporate debt resulting from our additional corporate borrowing in the fourth quarter of 2013, and an increase in the provision for credit losses. Personnel expense for the third quarter 2014 was $41.9 million, an increase of 35% from $31.1 million for the third quarter 2013 primarily due to higher variable compensation, partially offset by a reduction in salaries and benefits expense due to a decrease in headcount. Personnel expense as a percentage of total revenues in the third quarter 2014 was 43%, compared to 42% in the same quarter last year.

INCOME FROM OPERATIONS was $24.5 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to GAAP income from operations of $12.7 million and adjusted income from operations2 of $13.8 million for the third quarter 2013. OPERATING MARGIN was 25% for the third quarter 2014 compared to GAAP operating margin of 17% and ADJUSTED OPERATING MARGIN2 of 19% for the third quarter 2013.

ADJUSTED EBITDA was $20.7 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to $10.9 million in the prior year, a 90% increase. The increase is primarily due to growth in servicing fees, increased interest income from loans held for sale and loans held for investment, and higher origination volumes and associated fees, partially offset by higher personnel expense.

LOAN ORIGINATION VOLUME

LOAN ORIGINATIONS were $3.1 billion for the third quarter 2014 compared to $1.8 billion for the third quarter 2013, a 77% increase.  Loan originations with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were $2.3 billion, up 193% from the third quarter 2013, and HUD volumes totaled $162.6 million a 40% decrease from the third quarter 2013.  Brokered loan originations totaled $538.1 million, a 12% decrease from the third quarter 2013.  Interim loan originations totaled $82.9 million, an 18% decrease from the third quarter 2013. Originations for the Company's CMBS partnership were $49.8 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to zero for the same quarter last year.

SERVICING PORTFOLIO

The SERVICING PORTFOLIO totaled $41.2 billion at September 30, 2014, a 7% increase from $38.7 billion at September 30, 2013.  With an average loan term of over ten years and the WEIGHTED AVERAGE SERVICING FEE at 24 basis points, we continue to benefit from this very profitable and stable cash annuity.  SERVICING FEES were $25.0 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to $23.0 million for the third quarter 2013, a 9% increase. 

CREDIT QUALITY AND RISK-SHARING OBLIGATIONS

The Company's AT RISK SERVICING PORTFOLIO, which is comprised of loans subject to a defined risk-sharing formula, was $16.1 billion at September 30, 2014 compared to $14.9 billion at September 30, 2013. 

The Company's at risk servicing portfolio continues to demonstrate strong credit performance:

There were no 60+ DAY DELINQUENCIES at September 30, 2014 compared to six basis points of the at risk portfolio at September 30, 2013. 

THE PROVISION FOR RISK-SHARING OBLIGATIONS associated with loans in the at risk servicing portfolio was $1.2 million for the third quarter 2014 compared to a net recovery of $0.2 million for the third quarter 2013. NET WRITE-OFFS for the third quarter 2014 were $2.1 million, or one basis point of the September 30, 2014 at risk servicing portfolio, compared to $3.7 million for the third quarter 2013, or two basis points of the September 30, 2013 at risk servicing portfolio.  Net write-offs represent the settlement of the Company's guaranty obligations related to losses provisioned for in prior periods.

The on-balance sheet INTERIM LOAN PORTFOLIO, which is comprised of loans for which we have full risk of loss, was $207.2 million at September 30, 2014 compared to $119.4 million at September 30, 2013.  Although all of our interim loans are current and performing, the Company provides a general reserve for potential losses.  For the third quarter 2014, the provision for loan losses was $0.3 million compared to zero for the third quarter 2013.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS

TOTAL REVENUES for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $248.2 million compared to $233.6 million for the same period last year, a 6% increase.  The increase in total revenues was largely driven by a 17% increase in LOAN ORIGINATIONS from $6.1 billion to $7.1 billion. GAINS FROM MORTGAGE BANKING ACTIVITIES decreased slightly from $151.3 million to $150.1 million.  Gains attributable to MSRs declined primarily because of lower average Fannie Mae servicing fees due to competition and the size of loans originated. This decline in gains attributable to MSRs was partially offset by a 9% growth in servicing fees and increases in both net interest income and prepayment fees.  In the first nine months of 2014, 31% of total revenues came from servicing and asset management fees, up from 29% in the same period last year, moving us closer to our goal of 50% by the end of 2017.

GAAP TOTAL EXPENSES for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $190.8 million compared to GAAP total expenses of $184.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, an increase of 3%.  ADJUSTED TOTAL EXPENSES for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $190.3 million compared to adjusted total expenses of $181.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, an increase of 5%.  The increase in total expenses was largely due to an increase in corporate debt expense, partially offset by a decrease in operating expenses. Personnel expense as a percentage of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 40% compared to 41% for the same period last year, demonstrating that the Company is effectively managing costs and maintaining efficiency as it grows.

GAAP OPERATING MARGIN for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 23% compared to GAAP operating margin of 21% and ADJUSTED OPERATING MARGIN of 22% for the same period last year.  GAAP NET INCOME for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $35.2 million compared to GAAP net income of $30.3 million for the same period last year, an increase of 16%.  ADJUSTED NET INCOME for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $35.5 million compared to adjusted net income of $32.5 million for the same period last year, an increase of 9%.

ADJUSTED EBITDA was $61.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $38.6 million for the same period last year, a 59% increase.  The increase was driven by growth in our non-origination income such as servicing fees and net interest income, as well as by continued expense management.

1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure the Company presents to help investors better understand our operating performance.  For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income, refer to the sections of this press release below titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Adjusted Financial Metrics Reconciliation to GAAP."

2 The amortization of customer contracts acquired from CWCapital, and other acquisition and integration costs related specifically to the CWCapital acquisition, are not reflective of our ongoing operations and have been excluded to facilitate a comparison of our period over period results.  For details of these adjustments for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, and a reconciliation of adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted total expenses, adjusted income from operations, and adjusted operating margin, refer to the sections of this press release below titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Adjusted Financial Metrics Reconciliation to GAAP."  There were no adjustments made during the second and third quarters 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures  

To supplement the financial statements presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company presents the following non-GAAP financial measures, each of which excludes certain expenses that are not reflective of our ongoing operations:  adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted total expenses, adjusted income from operations and adjusted operating margin. These supplemental measures exclude the amortization of customer contracts acquired from CWCapital and other acquisition and integration costs related specifically to the CWCapital acquisition. 

In addition, the Company presents adjusted EBITDA which is not a recognized measurement under GAAP. When analyzing our operating performance, readers should use adjusted EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, GAAP net income. Adjusted EBITDA represents GAAP net income before income taxes, interest expense on our term loan facility, depreciation and amortization, provision for credit losses, net of write-offs, stock based incentive compensation charges, and removes the benefit of non-cash revenues such as gains attributable to MSRs. In addition, adjusted EBITDA further excludes the impact of the aforementioned amortization of customer contracts and other acquisition and integration costs related specifically to the CWCapital acquisition. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management's discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. The amounts shown for adjusted EBITDA may also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in our debt instruments, which are further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges, that are used to determine compliance with financial covenants.

The Company believes that adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted total expenses, adjusted income from operations and adjusted operating margin facilitate a review of the comparability of the Company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis because the amortization of customer contracts and other acquisition and integration related costs are not, in our view, related to the Company's ongoing operational performance. We use these non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA, to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and for benchmarking performance externally against competitors. Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that investors benefit from seeing results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's on-going operating results;
  • the ability to better identify trends in the Company's underlying business and perform related trend analyses; and
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company's underlying business.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, refer to the section of this press release below titled "Adjusted Financial Metrics Reconciliation to GAAP."

(1) At risk servicing portfolio is defined as the balance of Fannie Mae DUS loans subject to the risk-sharing formula described below, as well as an immaterial balance of Freddie Mac and GNMA-HUD loans on which we share in the risk of loss. Use of the at-risk portfolio provides for comparability of the full risk-sharing and modified risk-sharing loans because the provision and allowance for risk-sharing obligations are based on the at risk balances of the associated loans. Accordingly, we have presented the key statistics as a percentage of the at risk portfolio.

For example, a $15 million loan with 50% DUS risk-sharing has the same potential risk exposure as a $7.5 million loan with full DUS risk-sharing. Accordingly, if the $15 million loan with 50% DUS risk-sharing was to default, the Company would view the overall loss as a percentage of the at risk balance, or $7.5 million, to ensure comparability between all risk-sharing obligations. To date, all but three of the Company's risk-sharing obligations that we have settled have been from full risk-sharing loans.

(2) Represents the maximum loss we would incur under our risk-sharing obligations if all of the loans we service, for which we retain some risk of loss, were to default and all of the collateral underlying these loans was determined to be without value at the time of settlement. The maximum exposure is not representative of the actual loss we would incur.
