Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

NOTE 1 — BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS

Signature Group Holdings, Inc. (“Signature”) is a business enterprise with current principal holdings in cash, an industrial supply business operating through its wholly owned subsidiary, North American Breaker Co., LLC (“NABCO” or “Industrial Supply”), and certain financial assets. Signature has significant capital resources and is actively seeking to make acquisitions as well as grow its existing operations.

Signature’s ‘continuing operations’ includes two operating segments, Industrial Supply and Signature Special Situations:

Headquartered in Burbank, California, Industrial Supply is one of the largest independent suppliers of circuit breakers in the country. Industrial Supply’s niche is focused on the replacement market, particularly for commercial and industrial circuit breakers where replacement time is extremely important, but also supplies residential circuit breakers in order to provide its customers with a single source solution for their circuit breaker needs. Industrial Supply operates from seven warehouse locations across the United States, which facilitates next day ground shipping service to a broad section of its customer base.

Signature Special Situations selectively acquires sub-performing and nonperforming commercial and industrial loans, leases, and mortgages typically at a discount to unpaid principal balance. Signature Special Situations may also originate secured debt financings to middle market companies for a variety of situations, including supporting another transaction such as an acquisition, recapitalization or restructuring, and may take positions in corporate bonds and other structured debt instruments, which may be performing, sub-performing or nonperforming, as well as other specialized financial assets.

Additionally, Signature’s operations include a discontinued operations segment, where it holds and manages certain assets and liabilities related to its former businesses, then known as Fremont General Corporation (“Fremont”) and its primary operating subsidiary, Fremont Investment & Loan (“FIL”), as well as Cosmed, Inc. (“Cosmed”), which owns the product formulations of a line of anti-aging skin care products and was designated as a discontinued operation in the fourth quarter of 2012. The assets and liabilities of discontinued operations are being managed to maximize their cash recoveries and limit costs and exposures.

NOTE 2 — FINANCIAL STATEMENT PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Signature, its wholly owned subsidiaries and its majority owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”). The Company accounts for investments in companies over which it has the ability to exercise significant influence, but does not hold a controlling interest, under the equity method of accounting, and records its proportionate share of income or losses in other income (expense) in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Recent accounting standards

In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2013-02, Comprehensive Income: Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2013-02”). ASU 2013-02 requires disclosure of information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income (“accumulated OCI”) by component. In addition, ASU 2013-02 requires presentation, either on the face of the statements of operations or in the notes, significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated OCI by the respective line items of net income, but only

if the amounts reclassified are required to be reclassified to net income in their entirety in the same reporting period under GAAP. For other amounts that are not required to be reclassified in their entirety to net income under GAAP, a cross-reference must be provided to other required disclosures that provide additional detail about those amounts. ASU 2013-02, which will increase disclosures for the Company as outlined above, is effective January 1, 2013. The adoption of ASU 2013-02 is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In the second quarter of 2013, the Company sold its remaining residential real estate loans (the “Residential Loans”). The aggregate carrying value of the Residential Loans, including accrued interest and servicing advances was $22.1 million. Proceeds of $27.1 million were received for the Residential Loans, resulting in a $5.0 million gain, classified as operating revenues of Signature Special Situations in the condensed consolidated statements of income.

Pro forma financial information

Had the Residential Loans been sold as of December 31, 2011, operating revenues of Signature Special Situations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 would have been reduced by $0.8 million and $4.2 million, respectively, related to interest income and change in market valuation allowance recognized on the loans sold. Operating costs for loan servicing-related expenses would have been reduced by $13 thousand and $33 thousand for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Loss from continuing operations and net loss would have increased by $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2012, and would have increased by $4.1 million, or $0.04 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

This pro forma financial information is presented for illustrative purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of the financial position or results of operations for future periods or the results that would have been achieved if the sales of the Residential Loans had been consummated on the dates indicated. The unaudited pro forma financial information does not reflect any adjustments for nonrecurring items. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly the unaudited pro forma financial information have been made. The unaudited pro forma financial information should be read in conjunction with this Report and the Company’s Annual Report.

The Residential Loans were reclassified to held for sale in the second quarter of 2013.

Generally, the residential real estate loans had original maturities of up to thirty years and were typically secured by first deeds of trust on single-family residences. Many of the loans had principal amortization terms in excess of thirty years or no principal amortization (interest-only loans). The loans were generally made to borrowers who did not satisfy all of the credit, documentation and other underwriting standards prescribed by conventional mortgage lenders and loan buyers, such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and are commonly referred to as “subprime” or “non-prime” borrowers. Before the reclassification and sale, the discount on residential real estate loans was accreted to interest income using the interest method over the contractual life, using the contractual terms of each loan.

Commercial real estate loans consist primarily of a participation interest in a pool of adjustable rate multi-family loans.

Commercial loans are comprised of senior debt of a manufacturing company that specializes in retail store fixtures and merchandise displays and includes a revolving line of credit and term note that are secured by the assets of the borrower. The line of credit provides for maximum borrowings of $7.0 million, has an interest rate of prime plus 2.75%, with a floor of 5.75%, and matures on March 31, 2017. The $1.0 million term note has an interest rate of prime plus 2.75%, with a floor of 5.75%, and matures on March 31, 2017, with interest due monthly. Draws on the revolving line of credit are subject to a borrowing base, with any outstanding balance due at maturity. Principal on the term note is due monthly beginning on April 1, 2015, with a final balloon payment due on March 31, 2017. At June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the commercial loans were current and the borrower was in compliance with all loan covenants.

As of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, zero and $2.2 million of residential real estate loans were in nonaccrual status, respectively. No other loans receivable, net were in nonaccrual status as of June 30, 2013 or December 31, 2012. The nonaccrual residential real estate loans represented 10.1% of the $22.2 million recorded investment of all residential real estate loans and 9.1% of the $24.4 million recorded investment of all loans receivable, net as of December 31, 2012.

The average recorded investment of impaired loans receivable was $9.3 million and $11.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively. Interest income recognized on impaired loans receivable was $0.3 million and $1.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

At June 30, 2013, no loans classified as loans receivable, net were modified under troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”) in the twelve months ended June 30, 2013, and three loans aggregating $0.2 million, classified as loans receivable, net at December 31, 2012, were modified under TDRs in 2012. There were no losses on TDRs in the three or six months ended June 30, 2013 or in the year ended December 31, 2012. None of the loans modified under TDRs during the twelve months ended June 30, 2013 reached ninety or more days past due.

Notes Payable

On July 16, 2010, as partial settlement of the Company’s then outstanding 9.0% Trust Originated Preferred Securities (the “TOPrS”), the former holders of the TOPrS received $39.0 million in notes payable, due December 2016, bearing interest at 9.0% per annum (the “Notes Payable”). In 2012, the Company acquired and retired $1.8 million of the Notes Payable. Interest expense on the Notes Payable was $0.8 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $1.7 million and $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The Notes Payable indenture contains covenants that limit the ability of the Company and certain subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions and qualifications, to (i) pay dividends or make distributions, repurchase equity securities, or make guarantee payments on the foregoing; (ii) make payments on debt securities that rank pari passu or junior to the Notes Payable; (iii) effect a change in control of the Company; or (iv) enter into transactions with affiliated parties that are not at arms-length.

Seller notes

Seller notes are comprised of $5.0 million in obligations owed to the former owners of NABCO, issued in connection with the 2011 NABCO business combination. The seller notes had aggregate outstanding balances of $1.8 million and $2.9 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The seller notes mature on January 29, 2016 and are subject to scheduled quarterly principal payments and, subject to certain conditions, accelerated principal payments. Based on NABCO’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) for the year ended December 31, 2012, $1.7 million of accelerated principal payments are due and payable in the year ending December 31, 2013. The seller notes bear interest at 6.00% per annum and interest is paid quarterly. Interest expense on the seller notes was $35 thousand and $66 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $0.1 million and $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

As of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all of the covenants under its debt agreements, which includes restrictions on dividends from Industrial Supply to Signature.

NOTE 9 — COMMON STOCK WARRANT LIABILITY

In connection with the Company’s emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy (the “Bankruptcy Proceedings”) on June 11, 2010 (the “Effective Date”), Signature issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 15 million shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Warrants”). The aggregate purchase price for the Warrants was $0.3 million, due in equal installments as the Warrants vest. The Warrants vested 20% upon issuance and, thereafter, vest 20% annually on the anniversary of the issuance date. As of June 30, 2013, the Warrants are 80% vested and the Company has received $0.2 million of the aggregate purchase price. The Warrants expire in June 2020 and had an original exercise price of $1.03 per share. The Warrants were issued without registration in reliance on the exemption set forth in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Warrants include customary terms that provide for certain adjustments of the exercise price and the number of shares of common stock to be issued upon the exercise of the Warrants in the event of stock splits, stock dividends, pro rata distributions and certain other fundamental transactions. Additionally, the Warrants are subject to pricing protection provisions and are eligible to receive rights to subscribe for the purchase of common stock under rights offering transactions. During the term of the Warrants, the pricing protection provisions provide that certain issuances of new shares of common stock at prices below the current exercise price of the Warrants automatically reduce the exercise price of the Warrants to the lowest per share purchase price of common stock issued.

In October 2010, January 2011, and April 2011, restricted common stock was issued to nonexecutive members of the Board of directors (the “Board”) under the Company’s director compensation program (the “Director Compensation Program”) that each triggered the pricing protection provisions of the Warrants. The restricted common stock issued to nonexecutive members of the Board in April 2011 reduced the exercise price of the Warrants to $0.69 per share. In July 2011, the Company issued approximately 3.0 million shares of common stock as purchase consideration in the NABCO business combination. The NABCO business combination common stock was issued at $0.664 per share, thereby reducing the exercise price of the Warrants to $0.664 per share; however, the holders of approximately 79.3% of the Warrants waived the pricing protection provisions related to shares issued in the NABCO business combination and the exercise price related to those Warrants remains at $0.69 per share.

The Company utilizes a trinomial lattice option pricing model to estimate the fair value of the common stock warrant liability. A decrease in the common stock warrant liability results in other income, while an increase in the common stock warrant liability results in other expense. The following table presents changes in the fair value of the common stock warrant liability during the periods indicated:

NOTE 10 — INCOME TAXES

Income tax expense was $15 thousand and $36 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $93 thousand and $81 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Income tax expense is primarily comprised of estimated income taxes due in jurisdictions where the Company does not have or cannot utilize its net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”). As of December 31, 2012, the Company had estimated federal and California NOLs of approximately $886.9 million and $980.0 million, respectively. The Company’s federal NOLs have a 20-year life and begin to expire in 2027. The Company’s California NOLs have either a 10-year or 20-year life and begin to expire in 2017.

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, the Company considers whether it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets depends on the ability to generate future taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences become deductible. As a result of generating losses since 2006, among other factors, the Company has determined that sufficient uncertainty exists as to the realizability of its deferred tax asset and as such, has placed a full valuation allowance of $373.8 million and $373.7 million on its deferred tax assets at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

In December 2012, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS” or the “Service”), in preparation of its report to the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation (the “Joint Committee”) related to the Company’s $24.8 million refund request for the 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2008 tax years, notified the Company of a proposed adjustment to the reported 2005 alternative minimum taxable income and associated tax (“AMT”). The Service identified a $2.6 million liability as a result of certain disallowed bad debt deductions identified in the 2006 tax year audit. In connection with this proposed adjustment, in February 2013, the Service notified the Company that it was examining the 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2008 tax years. The IRS has requested, and the Company has provided, documentation that the Company believes reduces the 2005 AMT liability to approximately $0.4 million, including $30 thousand of accrued interest through December 31, 2012. The Company remitted a $0.4 million payment to the IRS on January 31, 2013. The Company believes its proposed adjustments will, more likely than not, be allowed under the examination. Although the Company does not have any reason to believe that the Joint Committee will not approve the remainder of the tax refund, received in 2010, there is no assurance that such approval will be given by the Joint Committee or that additional issues will not be raised by the IRS or the Joint Committee during the examination.

NOTE 11 — SHARE-BASED PAYMENTS AND EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

Director Compensation Program

The Director Compensation Program provides for annual grants of restricted shares of the Company’s common stock on the first business day of each calendar year to each nonexecutive Board member. These grants have a grant date fair value of $75 thousand per nonexecutive director, and vest on January 1 of the following year. Compensation to nonexecutive directors joining the Company after January 1 is prorated for the time of service and those awards also vest on January 1 of the following year. Beginning in January 2012, the director compensation awards have been granted under the Amended and Restated Signature Group Holdings, Inc. 2006 Performance Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”).

Incentive Plan

The Incentive Plan provides for the grant of restricted common stock, common stock options, stock appreciation rights, and restricted stock units to employees, nonexecutive directors and consultants. Under the Incentive Plan, the Board is authorized to issue up to 25.0 million shares of common stock, or its equivalent. As of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, there were no stock appreciation rights or restricted stock units outstanding and there were 5.7 million and 8.8 million shares, respectively, available for grant under the Incentive Plan.

Restricted common stock

Restricted common stock awards are granted with various vesting schedules ranging from immediately up to five years. Grants that vest immediately have restrictions on transfer of the common stock for approximately one year. The following table provides details of nonvested restricted common stock for the periods indicated:

On August 6, 2012, upon the certification of the results of the vote of shareholders at the 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the seating of the new Board and the resignation of four independent directors that were not renominated, 1,111,112 shares of restricted common stock vested pursuant to the restricted stock awards.

On May 3, 2013, in connection with his assumption of the duties of the Chief Executive Officer, the Board granted G. Christopher Colville 250,000 shares of restricted common stock. The grant date fair value of the award was $138,750, based on the closing price of Signature’s common stock on the grant date. On June 4, 2013, Mr. Colville resigned as Chairman of the Board and interim Chief Executive Officer and pursuant to his restricted stock awards, 182,927 shares of restricted common stock granted in January 2013, and the 250,000 shares of restricted common stock granted on May 3, 2013, vested in full.

On June 5, 2013, in connection with his appointment as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Craig Bouchard, was granted 250,000 shares of restricted common stock. The shares vest on January 1, 2014 and had a grant date fair value of $167,500.

Share-based compensation related to restricted common stock awards was $0.4 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $0.6 million and $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. At June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the aggregate unamortized value of share-based restricted common stock awards was $0.7 million and $0.7 million, respectively, and will be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.0 years and 1.6 years, respectively.

Common stock options

The Company may issue common stock options to employees under the Incentive Plan, with various vesting schedules ranging from immediately up to four years. The fair value of each common stock option award is estimated on the grant date using either a Black-Scholes option pricing model for service-based awards or a trinomial lattice option pricing model for performance-based awards using assumptions in the following table. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company’s common stock since emerging from Bankruptcy Proceedings, and volatilities of similar entities. The common stock option awards expire eight to ten years following the grant date and the expected lives are based on the simplified method as the Company does not have sufficient common stock option exercise experience to support a reasonable estimate of expected term. The risk-free rate is the yield available on United States Treasury zero-coupon issues with remaining terms approximating the expected term at the grant date. The following table presents weighted average assumptions used in determining the weighted average $0.27 and $0.17 per share grant date fair value of common stock options granted in the six months ended June 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively:

Share-based compensation related to common stock option awards was $0.2 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $0.4 million and $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. At June 30, 2013, the aggregate unamortized value of share-based common stock option awards was $1.2 million and will be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.4 years.

401(k) saving plan

In 2012, the Company implemented a 401(k) savings plan (the “Savings Plan”) under which all full-time employees are eligible to participate. Employee contributions are limited to the maximum amount allowed by the IRS. The Company matches 100% of each employee contribution to the Savings Plan, up to a maximum match of 4% of each employee’s cash compensation. Matching contributions under the Savings Plan during the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were $47 thousand and $15 thousand, respectively, and $0.1 million and $15 thousand during the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

NOTE 12 — LOSS PER SHARE

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to Signature Group Holdings, Inc. by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. For the calculation of diluted earnings per share, the basic weighted average number of shares is increased by the dilutive effect of unvested restricted common stock awards, common stock options and the Warrants determined using the treasury stock method. As a result of the net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, the impact of all outstanding unvested restricted stock, common stock options and the Warrants are excluded from diluted loss per share as their impact would be anti-dilutive.

Furthermore, unvested restricted stock, common stock options and the Warrants are anti-dilutive and excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share if the assumed proceeds upon exercise or vesting are greater than the cost to reacquire the same number of shares at the average market price during the period. The dilutive impact of these securities could be included in future computations of diluted earnings per share if the average market price of the Company’s common stock for the periods presented increases sufficiently.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted loss per share for the periods indicated:

NOTE 13 — FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 825, Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of the estimated fair value of certain financial instruments and the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate such fair values. FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements (“ASC 820”) defines fair value as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

   

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

   

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

   

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. Level 3 assets and liabilities include financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair value requires significant management judgment or estimation.

The Company used the following methods and assumptions to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012:

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents are recorded at historical cost. The carrying value is a reasonable estimate of fair value as these instruments have short-term maturities and market interest rates.

Table of Contents

Investment securities, available for sale

Investment securities, available for sale were comprised of corporate bonds until the bonds were liquidated in March 2013. Estimated fair values for investment securities, available for sale are based on quoted market prices, where available.

Loans receivable, net

Loans receivable, net, consists of residential real estate loans, which were sold in the second quarter of 2013, commercial real estate loans, commercial lines of credit and commercial term notes. The estimated fair values of commercial real estate loans and commercial lines of credit consider the collateral coverage of assets securing the loans and estimated credit losses, as well as variable interest rates, which approximate market interest rates.

The estimated fair value of the residential real estate loans is based on several factors, including current bids and market indications for similar assets, recent sales, discounted cash flow analyses, estimated values of underlying collateral and actual loss severity experience in portfolios backed by similar assets.

The estimated fair value of the commercial term note is based on a discounted cash flow analysis, which includes assumptions about the amount and timing of expected future cash flows, discounted at rates that reflect the inherent credit, liquidity and uncertainty risks associated with the underlying borrower.

Preferred stock

Preferred stock is classified in other noncurrent assets and consists of 4.00% cumulative convertible preferred stock of a privately held commercial loan borrower of Signature Special Situations. The preferred stock has a stated value of $2.0 million and is convertible to 45.0% of the common stock of the company, on a fully diluted basis. The estimated fair value of preferred stock is based on estimates of EBITDA, a sales multiple and a control discount.

Common stock

Common stock is classified in other noncurrent assets and consists of securities the Company received in exchange for its position in a privately held company’s defaulted corporate bonds pursuant to the issuer’s plan of reorganization in bankruptcy. As of June 30, 2013, there was no readily determinable fair value for the common stock. The estimated fair value of common stock is based on the results of operations of the issuer since emerging from bankruptcy, including EBITDA and a sales multiple.

FHLB stock

Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) stock is classified in assets of discontinued operations and recorded at cost. FIL was previously a member of the FHLB of San Francisco and, accordingly, was required to purchase stock in order to maintain a borrowing relationship. The Company can redeem the FHLB stock at par value five years after the surrender of FIL’s bank charter, and on July 25, 2013, the Company redeemed the FHLB stock and received $2.1 million in cash.

Commercial real estate investments, net

Commercial real estate investments, net is classified in assets of discontinued operations and includes participations in community development projects and similar types of loans and investments that FIL previously maintained for compliance under the Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”). The fair value of commercial real estate investments is based on various factors including current bids and market indications of similar assets, recent sales and discounted cash flow analyses. At June 30, 2013, the estimated fair value is based on the public announcement of a tender offer for a company in which FIL held an investment. Prior to the announcement, there were limited divestiture options for the investment.

Lines of credit

Lines of credit are short-term borrowing facilities, used primarily to support ongoing operations. The carrying value is a reasonable estimate of fair value, as these instruments have short-term maturities and market interest rates.

Long-term debt

Long-term debt includes Notes Payable, term loan and seller notes. The fair value of Notes Payable is based on quoted market prices. The fair value of the term loan is based on the market characteristics of the loan terms, including a variable interest rate, principal amortization and maturity date, generally consistent with market terms. The fair value of the seller notes is based on the market characteristics of the loan terms, scheduled and accelerated principal amortization and maturity date, generally consistent with market terms.

Common stock warrant liability

Common stock warrant liability is a derivative liability related to the Warrants that provide for anti-dilution and pricing protection provisions. The fair value of the common stock warrant liability is based on a trinomial lattice option pricing model that utilizes various assumptions, including exercise multiple, volatility and expected term.

Recurring and Nonrecurring Fair Value Measurements

In accordance with GAAP, certain assets and liabilities are required to be carried at estimated fair value and are referred to as recurring fair value measurements. From time to time, the Company is required to measure other assets and liabilities at estimated fair value, typically from the application of specific accounting guidance under GAAP and are referred to as nonrecurring fair value measurements. These adjustments to fair value generally result from the application of lower of cost or market accounting or impairment charges of individual assets. The following table presents the Company’s assets and liabilities measured at estimated fair value based on the fair value hierarchy on a recurring and nonrecurring basis:

Significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of REO are marketability discounts and estimated selling costs. The Company utilizes third party collateral valuation services and real estate Internet websites to estimate the fair value of REO and adjusts these values to account for various factors, such as historical loss experience, anticipated liquidation timing and estimated selling costs. Significant increases in these assumptions would result in a decrease in the estimated fair value of REO, while decreases in these assumptions would result in a higher estimated fair value.

Significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of commercial real estate investments are marketability discounts and estimated selling costs. Significant increases in these assumptions would result in a decrease in the estimated fair value of commercial real estate investments, while decreases in these assumptions would result in a higher estimated fair value.

Significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of common stock warrant liability include the exercise multiple, volatility and expected term. The Company uses these unobservable inputs in a trinomial lattice option pricing model. Significant increases in the exercise multiple or significant decreases in volatility or the expected term would result in a decrease in the estimated fair value of common stock warrant liability, while significant decreases in the exercise multiple or significant increases in volatility or the expected term would result in an increase in the estimated fair value of common stock warrant liability.

Assets and liabilities of discontinued operations include:

Inventory

Inventory consists of a line of skin care products and related materials held at Cosmed.

FHLB stock

FIL was previously a member of the FHLB of San Francisco and, accordingly, was required to purchase stock in order to maintain a borrowing relationship. The Company can redeem the FHLB stock at par value five years after the surrender of FIL’s bank charter. On July 26, 2013, the Company redeemed the FHLB stock and received $2.1 million in cash.

Real estate owned, net

REO, net consists of single-family residential properties acquired through, or in lieu of, foreclosure of loans secured by the properties and is reported at the lower of cost or estimated fair value, net of estimated selling or disposal costs (“net realizable value”). At June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, REO was comprised of one and seven properties, respectively.

Other assets

Other assets include $51 thousand of participations in community development projects and similar types of loans and investments that FIL previously maintained for compliance under the CRA, and $48 thousand of prepaid expenses at June 30, 2013. At December 31, 2012, other assets include $51 thousand of participations in community development projects and similar types of loans and investments that FIL previously maintained for compliance under the CRA, and $38 thousand of prepaid expenses.

Repurchase reserve for loans sold

The Company maintains a repurchase reserve that represents estimated losses the Company may experience from repurchase claims, both known and unknown, based on breaches of certain representations and warranties provided by FIL to counterparties that purchased the residential real estate loans FIL originated, predominantly from 2002 through the first quarter of 2007, which approximated $120 billion in the aggregate. Management estimates the likely range of the loan repurchase liability based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the timing of known claims relative to the loan origination date, the quality of the documentation supporting such claims, the number and involvement of cross-defendants, if any, related to such claims, and a time and expense estimate if a claim were to result in litigation. Additionally, management estimates the likelihood of possible future claims, and considers the unknown population of future claims, based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, historic claim experience activity, settlement arrangements with counterparties, remaining principal loan balances, as well as the passage of time since FIL originated and sold loans. The estimate is based on currently available information and is subject to known and unknown uncertainties using multiple assumptions requiring significant judgment. Accordingly, actual results may vary significantly from the current estimate.

Total outstanding repurchase claims at June 30, 2013 were $101.7 million. Of the outstanding repurchase claims, there has been no communication or other action from the claimants:

 

   

for more than sixty months in the case of $61.6 million in claims, or 60.6% of total claims outstanding;

 

   

for more than thirty-six months, but less than sixty months, in the case of $11.4 million in claims, or 11.2% of total claims outstanding; and

 

   

for more than twenty-four months, but less than thirty-six months, in the case of $28.7 million in claims, or 28.2% of total claims outstanding.

There were no repurchase claims received or settled during the six months ended June 30, 2013. The repurchase reserve liability was $7.0 million and $7.5 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. Recoveries of provisions for repurchase reserves were $0.2 million for each of the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, and $0.5 million for each of the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012.

NOTE 16 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Legal Proceedings

The Company is a defendant in or a party to a number of legal actions or proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business. In some of these actions and proceedings, claims for monetary damages are asserted against the Company. In view of the inherent difficulty of predicting the outcome of such legal actions and proceedings, the Company generally cannot predict what the eventual outcome of the pending matters will be, what the timing of the ultimate resolution of these matters will be, or what the eventual loss related to each pending matter maybe, if any.

In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, the Company establishes an accrued liability for litigation when those matters present loss contingencies that are both probable and estimable. In such cases, there may be an exposure to loss in excess of any amounts accrued. The estimated loss is based upon currently available information and is subject to significant judgment and a variety of assumptions, and known and unknown uncertainties. The matters underlying the estimated loss may change from time to time, and actual results may vary significantly from the current estimate. Therefore, an estimate of loss represents what the Company believes to be an estimate of loss only for certain matters meeting these criteria. It does not represent the Company’s maximum loss exposure.

Based on the Company’s current understanding of these pending legal actions and proceedings, management does not believe that judgments or settlements arising from pending or threatened legal matters, individually or in the aggregate, would have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company. However, in light of the inherent uncertainties involved in these matters, some of which are beyond the Company’s control, and the very large or indeterminate damages sought in some of these matters, an adverse outcome in one or more of these matters could be material to the Company’s results of operations or cash flows for any particular reporting period.

The legal proceedings summarized below include material matters that were resolved or concluded since December 31, 2012, as well as ongoing matters that may have an adverse effect on our business and future financial results.

Final Bankruptcy Decree. On April 15, 2013, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (the “California Federal Bankruptcy Court”) granted the Company’s motion for a final decree, and issued a final decree in the Company’s Bankruptcy Proceedings. The California Federal Bankruptcy Court retained jurisdiction to preside over claims described below in the Colburn and Walker matters. Upon the California Federal Bankruptcy Court entering the final orders in each of the Colburn and Walker claims, the Bankruptcy Proceedings will be closed.

Faigin Matter. On January 15, 2009, Alan Faigin, a former General Counsel of Fremont, filed a complaint against Fremont Reorganizing Corporation (“FRC”) in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles (the “California Superior Court”). On February 3, 2010, Mr. Faigin filed an amended complaint alleging wrongful termination, breach of his employment agreement, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, fraud and misrepresentation, negligent misrepresentation and violation of various California labor codes, among other allegations under a “joint employer” theory. In February 2010, a jury found for Mr. Faigin and awarded him damages in the amount of approximately $1.4 million, which Fremont recorded as an accrued liability in the first quarter of 2010. The Company appealed the California Superior Court decision to the California Court of Appeal (the “Court of Appeal”), which affirmed the lower court decision, and to the California Supreme Court. On February 21, 2013, the California Supreme Court notified counsel for the Company that it would not review the Faigin matter, affirming the Court of Appeal decision and judgment. On April 4, 2013, Mr. Faigin filed a motion for an order releasing funds deposited with the California Superior Court to enforce the judgment. In response, the Company filed a Motion to Stay Execution of Judgment while the Company’s claims against Mr. Faigin, discussed below, are litigated. On May 17, 2013, the judge granted the Company’s Motion to Stay Execution of Judgment and denied Mr. Faigin’s motion to enforce the judgment.

On April 27, 2009, FRC filed a cross-complaint against Mr. Faigin in the California Superior Court for breach of confidence, breach of fiduciary duty, representing conflicting interests and indemnification; and the Company is seeking $4.6 million in damages. On June 9, 2009, the California Superior Court dismissed the cross-complaint pursuant to California’s anti-SLAPP statute. FRC appealed the dismissal of this cross-complaint and on August 30, 2011, the Court of Appeal reversed and remanded the dismissal of FRC’s cross-complaint causes of action against Mr. Faigin for breach of fiduciary duty and breach of confidence. The Company intends to pursue these actions to recover damages it suffered as a result of these breaches. A trial is currently scheduled for January 2014.

Colburn Matter. On December 8, 2009, Gwyneth Colburn, the former Executive Vice President for Fremont’s Commercial Real Estate group, filed a complaint in the California Superior Court against FIL and unnamed defendants for breach of contract related to a management continuity agreement (“MCA”) executed in August 2003, and extended in August 2007, and, separately, filed a proof of claim in the Bankruptcy Proceedings. In the California Superior Court action, Ms. Colburn contends she is owed $3.2 million, while in the Bankruptcy Proceedings, Ms. Colburn filed a $2.6 million proof of claim.

On August 9, 2011, the California Superior Court entered a judgment granting the Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment and dismissing the complaint. On September 22, 2011, Ms. Colburn filed a Notice of Appeal from this dismissal. Appellate briefs from both parties have been filed.

On February 12, 2013, the California Federal Bankruptcy Court denied the Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment. Ms. Colburn’s proof of claim in the Bankruptcy Proceedings remains outstanding and the Company intends to vigorously defend itself against these claims. A trial is currently scheduled for January 2014.

Walker Matter. On June 10, 2011, Kyle Walker, the former Chief Executive Officer and President of FIL, filed a complaint in the California Superior Court against the Company and unnamed defendants for breach of contract, certain California Labor Code violations and breach of fiduciary duty related to his MCA executed in August 2003, and extended in August 2006, and, separately, a proof of claim in the Bankruptcy Proceedings. In the California Superior Court action, Mr. Walker contends he is owed $4.6 million, while in the Bankruptcy Proceedings, Mr. Walker filed a $2.5 million proof of claim.

On August 26, 2011, Mr. Walker dismissed his complaint, without prejudice, against the Company as successor in interest to Fremont, but not as a successor in interest to FIL. On September 19, 2012, the Company obtained the California Superior Court’s final ruling granting the Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment and on October 26, 2012, the judgment was entered. On November 29, 2012, Mr. Walker moved for a new trial, based on the Court of Appeal’s ruling in the Faigin matter. On January 8, 2013, the California Superior Court granted Mr. Walker’s motion for a new trial. On February 5, 2013, the Company filed an appeal of the California Superior Court’s order granting Mr. Walker a new trial.

On February 12, 2013, the California Federal Bankruptcy Court denied the Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment. Mr. Walker’s proof of claim in the Bankruptcy Proceedings remains outstanding and the Company intends to vigorously defend itself against these claims. A trial is currently scheduled for January 2014.

RMBS Defense, Indemnity and Contribution Matters. The Company has received demands for defense, indemnity and contribution from defendants in various residential mortgage-backed securities (“RMBS”) actions. These demands arise from actions in which the Company is not a named defendant and from actions from which the Company has been dismissed after originally being named as a defendant. The demands relate to home mortgages originated by FIL that were then packaged and sold as RMBS. The Company has rejected each of these demands as it is the Company’s position that the demanding parties are being sued for conduct not chargeable to the Company. There is no assurance that the Company will not be named as defendants in additional RMBS related litigation or receive additional demands for defense, indemnity and contribution. It is the Company’s intention to vigorously defend any claims seeking defense, indemnity or contribution, but the Company cannot presently predict whether such claims will be brought or what the outcome would be.

Subpoenas for Information and Documents. In addition to the above-described RMBS litigation, the Company has received and responded to a number of subpoenas for information from federal authorities and other third parties in civil litigation matters in which the Company is not a defendant, but which concern home mortgage transactions involving the Company’s origination and sale of whole loans, and certain RMBS offerings.

Unpaid Claims. As of June 30, 2013, there remained two open claims filed with the California Federal Bankruptcy Court, comprised of the Colburn and Walker claims totaling $5.1 million, as described above.

NOTE 17 — SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

At the annual meeting of shareholders on July 16, 2013, among other proposals, a new Board was elected and the Company’s request to increase the authorized common share count from 190,000,000 to 665,000,000 was approved. With the seating of the new Board on July 16, 2013, 182,927 shares of restricted common stock granted to an outgoing Board member in January 2013 vested in full. Also on July 16, 2013, the Board reappointed Craig Bouchard as the Company’s Chairman of the Board and reaffirmed his title of Chief Executive Officer, positions he previously assumed on June 5, 2013.

On July 26, 2013, the Company filed its Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation with the State of Nevada, reflecting the change in authorized share count.

On August 8, 2013, 24,805 shares of restricted common stock were granted to each of the two new members elected to the Board at the 2013 Annual Meeting. The shares were granted under the Incentive Plan and the Director Compensation Program, and had an aggregate grant date fair value of the awards was $69 thousand.

OVERVIEW

Signature Group Holdings, Inc. is an enterprise that was incorporated as Fremont General Corporation (“Fremont”) in 1972. On June 11, 2010 (the “Effective Date”), Fremont completed a plan of reorganization (the “Plan of Reorganization”) and emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings (the “Bankruptcy Proceedings”) with (i) the present name, (ii) nine new board members and a new management team, (iii) a substantial amount of NOLs, which, as of December 31, 2012, included federal and California NOLs of $886.9 million and $980.0 million, respectively, and (iv) publicly traded common stock.

Since the Effective Date, the Company has been repositioned through the divestiture of non-core legacy assets, becoming a timely filer with the SEC, settling and resolving a substantial number of legacy legal actions, making select investments through Signature Special Situations and acquiring North American Breaker Co., LLC (“NABCO” or “Industrial Supply”) on July 29, 2011, its wholly owned specialty industrial supply company. Management and the Board expect to grow the Company through additional acquisitions, as well as through organic efforts within existing operations.

On April 15, 2013, the California Federal Bankruptcy Court issued a final decree in the Company’s Bankruptcy Proceedings. See “Bankruptcy Proceedings” in Part I, Item 3 of the Annual Report and “Legal Proceeding” in Part II, Item 1 of this Report for more information about the Bankruptcy Proceedings.

On June 4, 2013, the Company reached a settlement with certain shareholders that eliminated a pending proxy contest related to the Company’s 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for July 16, 2013 (the “Annual Meeting”). As part of the settlement, a new slate of directors was presented for election by shareholders at the Annual Meeting and on June 4, 2013, G. Christopher Colville resigned as interim Chief Executive Officer and stepped down as Chairman of the Board, and Craig Bouchard immediately became the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and was appointed Chairman of the Board. At the Annual Meeting, the proposed directors were elected and all of the proposals recommended by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), including a request to increase the authorized common share count from 190,000,000 to 665,000,000, were approved. As discussed in the Company’s proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, the primary reason for the increase in authorized shares is to support the Company’s capital raising and acquisition initiatives, including, potentially, through a series of rights offerings.

The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Report and this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations present the Company’s financial condition and results of operations by operating segment. We report our results of operations under both continuing and discontinued operations. All of the activities related to our operating subsidiaries and our growth strategies, as well as ongoing general corporate functions are included in continuing operations.

Continuing Operations. At June 30, 2013, Signature’s continuing operations had $121.0 million of assets, or 97.3% of our total assets, and $61.0 million of liabilities, or 87.0% of our total liabilities. Continuing operations includes two operating segments, Industrial Supply and Signature Special Situations, and a Corporate and Other category, whose operating costs relate to administrative, financial and human resource activities that are not allocated to specific operations and are excluded from segment results of operations, as management excludes such costs when assessing segment performance.

Industrial Supply. Industrial Supply, headquartered in Burbank, California, is one of the largest independent suppliers of circuit breakers in the country. We focus on the replacement circuit breaker market, particularly for commercial and industrial circuit breakers, where replacement time is extremely important, but we also supply residential circuit breakers. We operate from seven warehouse locations (as of July 1, 2013) across the United States, which enables us to improve customer delivery times, a key attribute of our service-oriented model. Industrial Supply’s assets are primarily comprised of inventory, accounts receivable and intangible assets, and its liabilities are primarily comprised of trade payables, a line of credit and long-term debt.

Signature Special Situations. Signature Special Situations selectively acquires sub-performing and nonperforming commercial and industrial loans, leases and mortgages, typically at a discount to unpaid principal balance (“UPB”). We may also originate secured debt financings to middle market companies for a variety of situations, including supporting another transaction such as an acquisition, recapitalization or restructuring. The Company may take positions in corporate bonds and other structured debt instruments, which may be performing, sub-performing or nonperforming, as well as other specialized financial assets. Based on our periodic analysies of individual investments and portfolios, we may also opportunistically exit investment positions when the benefits of holding the assets no longer outweigh the benefits of selling them. During the second quarter of 2013, a majority of Signature Special Situations’ assets, specifically its portfolio of residential real estate loans, were sold generating cash proceeds of approximately $27.1 million and a gain of $5.0 million. The proceeds are expected to be used in our acquisition efforts and to support the organic growth of our other businesses.

Discontinued Operations. At June 30, 2013, Signature’s discontinued operations had $3.4 million of assets, or 2.7% of our total assets, and $9.1 million of liabilities, or 13.0% of our total liabilities. Discontinued operations presents the financial condition and results of operations of the businesses and operations that are for sale or have been sold or discontinued by the Company, including certain of Fremont’s former operations. Additionally, management is evaluating alternatives for the disposal of the assets of Cosmed,

Table of Contents

Inc. (“Cosmed”), our majority owned subsidiary that owns the product formulations of an anti-aging line of skin care products. As a result, Cosmed’s assets, liabilities and results of operations have been reclassified in discontinued operations for all periods presented. No assurances can be made that an acceptable transaction for the Cosmed assets will close in a timely manner, or at all. Under our business strategy, we seek to maximize the value of the discontinued operations assets and expect to redeploy the proceeds in our continuing operations and manage exposures to outstanding contingencies.

Critical Accounting Policies

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to GAAP and are fundamental to understanding our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. Several of our policies are critical as they require management to make difficult, subjective and complex judgments about matters that are inherently uncertain and affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and operating revenues and costs included in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Circumstances and events that differ significantly from those underlying the Company’s estimates, assumptions and judgments could cause the actual amounts reported to differ significantly from these estimates. These policies govern (i) the repurchase reserve, (ii) deferred tax asset valuation, and (iii) goodwill and intangible assets, each of which is described in Part II, Item 7 of the Annual Report. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and assumptions based on historical experience and various other factors and circumstances. We believe our estimates and assumptions are reasonable under the circumstances; however, actual results may differ significantly from these estimates and assumptions, which could have a material impact on the carrying value of assets and liabilities at the balance sheet dates and our results of operations for the reporting periods.

There were no changes in our critical accounting policies from those disclosed in the Annual Report.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Q2-2013 Highlights

 

   

Net earnings of the Industrial Supply segment increased 38.3% on a 4.3% increase in net sales over the comparable period in 2012. Inventory continued to increase during the quarter in preparation for the summer sales season, to support the ongoing expansion of our warehouse network, and a strategic effort to protect gross margins through opportunistic purchases. With the opening of the Charlotte, North Carolina facility on July 1, 2013, we have achieved our original goal of opening two new locations in 2013 and we now expect to open an additional two locations over the coming twelve months.

 

   

Signature Special Situations recognized a $5.0 million gain on sale of loans during the quarter. While operating results were very strong to date in 2013, this segment’s asset base is now at a size that is not expected to generate material earnings in the next several quarters.

Consolidated Results of Operations - Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

As discussed and analyzed in more detail below in “Segment Results of Operations,” our net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013 decreased $2.0 million to $1.9 million, from a $3.9 million net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease was due to reductions in loss in both continuing and discontinued operations. The loss from continuing operations was $1.9 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to a loss of $3.2 million in the three months ended June 30, 2012. The $1.3 million improvement in loss from continuing operations was due to higher earnings from Industrial Supply, one-time gain on sale from

Signature Special Situations, and reductions in operating costs from Corporate and Other, offset by a significant noncash charge related to our common stock warrant liability and increased professional and compensation expense associated with a proxy contest settled in June. Loss from discontinued operations decreased $0.6 million to $0.1 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $0.7 million in the three months ended June 30, 2012 as the activities in discontinued operations continue to be reduced.

Consolidated Results of Operations – Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2012

As discussed and analyzed in more detail below in “Segment Results of Operations,” our net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2013 decreased $0.4 million to $4.7 million, from a $5.1 million net loss reported for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in net loss was due to reductions in loss from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, which offset an increase in loss from continuing operations. The loss from continuing operations was $4.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to a loss of $2.5 million in the six months ended June 30, 2012. The $1.5 million increase in loss from continuing operations was due to significant noncash charges related to our common stock warrant liability and increased professional and compensation expense associated with a proxy contest settled in June 2013, partially offset by higher earnings from Industrial Supply, one-time gains on sale from Signature Special Situations, and reductions in ongoing professional fees from Corporate and Other. Loss from discontinued operations decreased $1.9 million to $0.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $2.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2012 as the activities in discontinued operations continue to be reduced.
