Starwood Property Trust Reports Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

GREENWICH, Conn., Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: STWD) today announced operating results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The Company's second quarter 2017 GAAP net income was $117.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, and Core Earnings (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $136.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share.

"Our performance this quarter was driven by contributions from across our business segments," stated Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Property Trust. "Our $1.5 billion of capital deployment included $871 million of floating-rate large loan originations that should benefit our results in a rising rate environment. Despite the current competitive landscape, we have maintained our disciplined underwriting, with our portfolio LTV remaining modest at just under 63%, consistent with the composition of our portfolio over the last three years.  In addition, our multi-cylinder investment platform and access to diversified funding sources provides us with a competitive advantage, allowing us to continue to deliver attractive returns to our shareholders.

Shortly after quarter end, we expanded our access to attractive capital through membership in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago. In addition, Ten-X entered into a strategic transaction which will allow us to harvest some of the significant embedded value on our balance sheet next quarter.

With a diverse and growing global pipeline, we will continue to patiently deploy capital across our target assets into the best risk-adjusted opportunities."

Dividend

On August 9, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.48 per share of common stock for the quarter ending September 30, 2017. The dividend is payable on October 13, 2017 to common stockholders of record as of September 29, 2017.

Definition of Core Earnings

Core Earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, is used to compute the Company's incentive fees to its external manager and is an appropriate supplemental disclosure for a mortgage REIT.  For the Company's purposes, Core Earnings is defined as GAAP net income (loss) excluding non-cash equity compensation expense, the incentive fee due to the Company's external manager, acquisition costs from successful acquisitions, depreciation and amortization of real estate and associated intangibles and any unrealized gains, losses or other non-cash items recorded in net income for the period, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income or loss, or in net income. The amount is adjusted to exclude one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and certain other non-cash adjustments as determined by the Company's external manager and approved by a majority of the Company's independent directors.
