(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq)

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC” or the“Company”) (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • The Company has acquired and originated more than $79.1 million in loan commitments and has earned $1.9 million from loan interest and fee income during the third quarter of 2022.
  • As of September 30, 2022, AAMC's cash position was $13.5 million, which is net of the $97.7 million at quarter end for loans held for sale and investment at fair value.
  • The Company entered into a line of credit agreement with Flagstar Bank FSB ('Flagstar'). As of September 30, 2022, the Company has drawn $52.5 million on the line of credit.
  • The Company repurchased 286,873 shares of its common stock from Putnam Focused Equity Fund, a series of Putnam Trust, at $10.00 per share in July 2022.
  • The Company hired a Head of Sales and leased office space in Tampa, Florida for its Alternative Lending Group and has added staff to originate loans.
  • The Company prevailed in our litigation against its former CEO, Indroneel Chatterjee.

“Since March 2022, AAMC's Alternative Lending Group has utilized both its existing capital and new debt financing to place the Company in a strong position to execute on its business plan,” said Jason Kopcak, Chief Executive Officer. 'We do not plan on being an aggregator; however, the current volatility in the fixed income market has delayed our forward flow initiative for selling assets. We continue to make significant strides of bringing new capital to the bridge space as take-out investors for the alternative assets that we are creating.”

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

AAMC's net loss to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2022 was $(4.0) million compared to $(5.7) million for the same period in 2021. Diluted earnings per share was $(2.24) for the third quarter 2022, compared to $4.76 for the same period in 2021. The $4.76 includes a $16.1 million gain from a settlement of preferred stock that is not reflected in the net loss to common shareholders.
