Company Release - 8/3/2016 6:00 AM ET

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

SECOND QUARTER 2016 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Record total transaction volume of $5.4 billion, up 42% from Q2'15
  • Record total revenues of $147.9 million, up 30% from Q2'15
  • Record net income of $32.0 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, up 59% from Q2'15
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $27.1 million, down 6% from Q2'15
  • Acquired a $3.8 billion HUD servicing portfolio
  • Servicing portfolio of $57.3 billion at June 30, 2016, up 20% from June 30, 2015

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the "Company") reported second quarter 2016 net income of $32.0 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, a 59% increase from second quarter 2015 net income of $20.2 million, or $0.67 per diluted share. Total revenues were $147.9 million for the second quarter 2016, a 30% increase over the second quarter 2015.  Second quarter 2016 total revenues and net income were at their highest levels in the Company's history. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2016 was $27.1 million compared to $28.9 million for the second quarter 2015, a 6% decrease.

"The second quarter of 2016 was the most active and profitable quarter in our Company's history as the combination of very liquid debt capital markets and continued investor demand for commercial real estate drove our record transaction volume," commented Willy Walker, Walker & Dunlop's Chairman and CEO.  "The second quarter was our first quarter ever with total transaction volume over $5 billion and earnings per share of over a dollar.  Walker & Dunlop's extremely strong top and bottom line performance, coupled with significant capital deployment, pushed our annualized return on equity to 25%.  For the third time in the last six quarters, Walker & Dunlop generated a return on equity of 20% or greater, reflecting the benefit of our scaled lending platform, high margin servicing business, and prudent management of costs and capital.

"The long-term prospects for our business look very good," continued Walker. "Multifamily housing fundamentals remain very strong as more and more Americans decide to rent versus buy.  Historically low interest rates are allowing Walker & Dunlop borrowers to refinance and acquire properties with the lowest financing costs of their careers. And increased regulation on commercial banks, coupled with the FHFA increasing the combined 2016 multifamily lending caps for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from $62 billion to $70 billion, presents a very favorable regulatory landscape for a non-bank financial services company like Walker & Dunlop.  These significant macro trends, together with our exceptional team, brand, and market position, make us very excited about our business and ability to achieve our vision of creating the premier commercial real estate finance company in the United States."

SECOND QUARTER 2016 OPERATING RESULTS

TOTAL REVENUES were $147.9 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $113.9 million for the second quarter 2015, a 30% increase. The increase was the result of higher transaction volume, led by the strength in Fannie Mae lending volume, which drove gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights up 72%.

GAINS FROM MORTGAGE BANKING ACTIVITIES for the second quarter 2016 were $102.5 million compared to $70.0 million for the second quarter 2015, a 46% increase.  This increase was driven primarily by the substantial growth in loan origination volume, highlighted by a significant increase in lending volume with Fannie Mae. GAINS ATTRIBUTABLE TO MORTGAGE SERVICING RIGHTS ("MSRs") were $55.6 million for the second quarter 2016, a 72% increase from $32.4 million for the second quarter 2015.  LOAN ORIGINATION FEES were $46.9 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $37.6 million for the second quarter 2015, a 25% increase.   

SERVICING FEES were $32.8 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $28.1 million for the second quarter 2015. The 17% increase in servicing fees was driven by continued growth of the portfolio from loan origination volume.  

NET WAREHOUSE INTEREST INCOME, which includes net interest earned on loans held for sale and loans held for investment (the Company's on balance sheet interim loan portfolio), was $3.6 million for the second quarter 2016, a 46% decrease from $6.6 million for the second quarter 2015. The decrease in net warehouse interest income was a result of the lower average balance of loans held for sale during the quarter resulting from lower first quarter 2016 loan origination volume.

TOTAL EXPENSES were $96.2 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $81.3 million for the second quarter 2015, an 18% increase, which was primarily driven by a 21% increase in personnel costs due to increased headcount and increased variable compensation costs resulting from higher transaction volume and the Company's strong financial performance during the quarter. As a percentage of total revenues, personnel expense was 38% during the second quarter 2016 compared to 40% in the prior year's second quarter. Additionally, amortization and depreciation costs increased 13% due to the growth of the servicing portfolio year over year.

PROVISION FOR CREDIT LOSSES was $0.3 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $0.4 million for the second quarter 2015 as the credit quality of our at risk portfolio remains stable with no 60+ day delinquencies.

OPERATING MARGIN was 35% for the second quarter 2016, up from 29% for the second quarter 2015. The increase in operating margin was driven by the scale of the loan origination business, as $5.4 billion of total transaction volume drove total revenues up 30%, while total expenses grew only 18%.

NET INCOME was $32.0 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2016 compared to net income of $20.2 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2015. The 59% increase in net income was driven by increased total transaction volume and gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights.

ADJUSTED EBITDA was $27.1 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $28.9 million for the second quarter 2015, a decrease of 6%. The decrease was driven by the increase in the percentage of earnings related to gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights, which are non-cash revenues.     

ANNUALIZED RETURN ON EQUITY was 25% for the second quarter 2016, up from 20% for the second quarter 2015. In the second quarter 2016 return on equity benefitted from increased total revenues and net income.

TOTAL TRANSACTION VOLUME

TOTAL TRANSACTION VOLUME for the second quarter 2016 was $5.4 billion, up 42% from $3.8 billion for the second quarter 2015.  Total transaction volume includes loan origination and investment sales volumes. 

LOAN ORIGINATION VOLUME was up 37% from the second quarter 2015 to $4.8 billion. Loan originations with Fannie Mae were $2.4 billion, an increase of 111% from the second quarter 2015.  Brokered loan originations totaled $1.1 billion, a 13% increase from the second quarter 2015.  Loan originations with Freddie Mac were $1.0 billion, a 9% decrease from the second quarter 2015. Interim loan originations were $158.6 million for the second quarter, a 49% increase from the second quarter 2015. HUD loan originations totaled $111.9 million, a 25% decrease from the second quarter 2015. CMBS originations were $30.7 million for the second quarter 2016, an 11% decrease from the second quarter 2015.

INVESTMENT SALES VOLUME was $624.0 million for the second quarter 2016 compared to $319.0 million for the second quarter 2015, a 96% increase from the second quarter 2015.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

On February 9, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $75.0 million of its outstanding common stock over a one-year period.  During the second quarter 2016, the Company repurchased 121 thousand shares for a total cost of $2.7 million. Year-to-date, the Company has repurchased 396 thousand shares for a total cost of $9.2 million.

SERVICING PORTFOLIO

The SERVICING PORTFOLIO totaled $57.3 billion at June 30, 2016, an increase of 20% from $47.7 billion at June 30, 2015. During the quarter, the Company purchased a $3.8 billion HUD servicing portfolio.  With the addition of these HUD loans together with the strong lending volume during the second quarter, the servicing portfolio grew at an impressive pace, adding $6.3 billion of loans during the quarter.  At June 30, 2016, the portfolio had a weighted average remaining term of 10.4 years and a 25 basis point WEIGHTED AVERAGE SERVICING FEE.

CREDIT QUALITY

The Company's AT RISK SERVICING PORTFOLIO, which is comprised of loans subject to a defined risk-sharing formula, was $21.3 billion at June 30, 2016 compared to $18.4 billion at June 30, 2015.  There were no 60+ DAY DELINQUENCIES in the Company's at risk servicing portfolio at June 30, 2016 and 2015.

There were no NET WRITE-OFFS for the second quarter 2016 compared to $0.8 million for the second quarter 2015.

The on-balance sheet INTERIM LOAN PORTFOLIO, which is comprised of loans for which Walker & Dunlop has full risk of loss, was $242.1 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $317.3 million at June 30, 2015.  All of the Company's interim loans are current and performing at June 30, 2016.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS

TOTAL TRANSACTION VOLUME for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $8.0 billion compared to $8.1 billion for the same period last year, a 2% decrease.

TOTAL REVENUES for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $242.1 million compared to $226.0 million for the same period last year, a 7% increase.  The increase in total revenues was largely driven by a 25% increase in gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights and a 17% increase in servicing fees, partially offset by a 12% decrease in origination fees.

TOTAL EXPENSES for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $166.2 million compared to $158.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015, an increase of 5%.  The increase in total expenses was due primarily to increased personnel expenses and amortization and depreciation costs. Personnel expenses as a percentage of total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was 37% compared to 38% for the same period last year.

OPERATING MARGIN for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was 31% compared to operating margin of 30% for the same period last year. Increased scale in the business year over year provided a lift to operating margin, as revenues grew 7% while expenses increased only 5%.

NET INCOME for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $47.5 million, or $1.55 per diluted share, compared to net income of $41.5 million, or $1.32 per diluted share, for the same period last year, a 15% increase.

ADJUSTED EBITDA was $59.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $64.3 million for the same period last year, a 7% decrease.  The decrease was driven by significant growth in gains attributable to mortgage servicing rights, which are non-cash revenues.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial statements presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. The presentation of adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. When analyzing our operating performance, readers should use adjusted EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before income taxes, interest expense on our term loan facility, and amortization and depreciation, adjusted for provision for credit losses net of write-offs, stock-based incentive compensation charges, and non-cash revenues such as gains attributable to MSRs and unrealized gains and losses from CMBS activities. 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.

We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and for benchmarking performance externally against competitors. We believe that this non-GAAP measure, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials, provides 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.

We believe that adjusted EBITDA has limitations in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with net income.  For more information on adjusted EBITDA, refer to the section of this press release below titled "Adjusted Financial Metric 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, substantially all of the 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.
