Special note on forward-looking statements

Our disclosure and analysis in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contain, and our officers, directors and authorized spokespersons may make, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “targets,” “predicts” or “potential” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases that are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and that do not relate solely to historical matters. You can also identify forward-looking statements by discussions of strategy, plans or intentions.

The forward-looking statements contained in this report reflect our current views about future events and are subject to numerous known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and changes in circumstances that may cause our actual business, operations, results or financial condition to differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Factors that may materially affect such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:

Our ability to develop and implement new businesses or, to the extent such businesses are developed, our ability to make them successful or sustain the performance of any such businesses;
Developments in the litigation regarding our redemption obligations under the Certificate of Designations of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Shares”), including our ability to obtain declaratory relief confirming that we were not obligated to redeem any of the Series A Shares on the March 15, 2020 redemption date if we do not have funds legally available to redeem all, but not less than all, of the Series A Shares requested to be redeemed on that redemption date;
Our search for a permanent Chief Executive Officer;
General economic and market conditions;
The failure of our information technology systems, a breach thereto, and our ability to integrate and improve those systems at a pace fast enough to keep up with competitors and security threats; and
The potential for the COVID-19 pandemic to adversely affect our business, financial position, operations, business prospects, customers, employees and third-party service providers.

While forward-looking statements reflect our good faith beliefs, assumptions, and expectations, they are not guarantees of future performance. Such forward-looking statements speak only as of their respective dates, and we assume no obligation to update them to reflect changes in underlying assumptions, new information or otherwise. For a further discussion of these and other factors that could cause our future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, please see Part II, Item 1A in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and “Item 1A. Risk factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“we,” “our,” “us,” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the U.S. Virgin Islands (“USVI”) on March 15, 2012 (our “inception”) and commenced operations on December 21, 2012.Our primary business was to provide asset management and certain corporate governance services to institutional investors. In October 2013, we applied for and were granted registration by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as a registered investment adviser under Section 203(c) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. We historically operated in a single segment focused on providing asset management and certain corporate governance services to investment vehicles. Our primary client was Front Yard Residential Corporation (“Front Yard”), a public real estate investment trust (“REIT”) focused on acquiring and managing quality, affordable single-family rental (“SFR”) properties throughout the United States.

On August 13, 2020, we entered into a Termination and Transition Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) with Front Yard and Front Yard Residential L.P. (“FYR LP”) to terminate the Amended and Restated Asset Management Agreement, dated as of May 7, 2019 (the “Amended AMA”), by and among Front Yard, FYR LP and AAMC, and to provide for a transition plan to facilitate the internalization of Front Yard’s asset management function (the “Transition Plan”). The Termination Agreement was effective on December 31, 2020, the date that the parties mutually agreed that the Transition Plan had been satisfactorily completed (the “Termination Date”) and, the Amended AMA was terminated in its entirety.

As disclosed in our public filings, the Company’s prior business operations ceased in the first week of 2021. During 2021, the Company engaged in a comprehensive search to acquire an operating company with the proceeds received from the sale of its operations in accordance with the Termination Agreement. A range of industries were included in the search, including, but not limited to, real estate lending, cryptocurrency, block-chain technology and insurance operations. Outside professional firms, including among others, Cowen and Company, LLC, an investment bank, and Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, a global law practice, were engaged to provide due diligence, legal and valuation expertise to assist in our search.

In March 2022, AAMC created the Alternative Lending Group (ALG). The Company has committed $40 million to grow the operations of the ALG to perform the following:

Build out a niche origination platform as well as a loan acquisition team;
Fund the originated or acquired alternative loans from a combination of Company equity and future lines of credit;
Sell the originated and acquired alternative loans through forward commitment and repurchase contracts;
Leverage senior management’s expertise in this space; and
Utilize AAMC’s existing operations in India to drive controls and cost efficiencies.

ALG's primary sources of income will be derived from mortgage banking activities generated through the origination and acquisition of loans, and their subsequent sale or securitization as well as net interest income from loans while held on the balance sheet for investment.

In addition to ALG operations, AAMC has also committed to $2.0 million of initial capital to invest into a Crypto ATM business through its Right of First Refusal Agreement with the cryptocurrency company, ForumPay, with the intent to deploy crypto enabled ATMs worldwide. The Crypto ATMs using ForumPay's software will generally allow users to purchase multiple cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, using fiat currency, sell the same cryptocurrencies and eventually remit payments globally either in cryptocurrency or the local fiat currency. The Company will earn revenue by charging fees for utilizing the ATMs for exchange between cryptocurrency and local fiat currency. We will initially invest $2.0 million and plan to invest more as the opportunity warrants.

Basis of presentation and use of estimates

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations. All wholly owned subsidiaries are included, and all intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
7


In management's opinion, the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments that are of a normal recurring nature and are necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods. The interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. We have omitted certain notes and other information from the interim condensed consolidated financial statements presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as permitted by SEC rules and regulations. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our annual consolidated financial statements included within our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Use of estimates

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Loans held for investment or sale, carried at fair market value

We will both originate or purchase alternative loans. These loans will either be classified as held for investment or held for sale depending upon the determination of management. We have elected to measure these alternative loans at fair value on a loan by loan basis. This option is available when we first recognize a financial asset. Subsequent changes in the fair value of these loans will be recorded in our condensed consolidated statements of operations in the period of the change. A fair value measurement represents the price at which an orderly transaction would occur between willing market participants at the measurement date.

We will estimate the fair values of the loans held for investment or sale based on available inputs from the marketplace. The market for the loans that we have or will invest in is generally illiquid. Establishing fair values for illiquid assets is inherently subjective and is often dependent upon our estimates and modeling assumptions. In circumstances where relevant market inputs cannot be obtained, increased analysis and management judgment are required to estimate fair value. This generally requires us to establish internal assumptions about future cash flows and appropriate risk-adjusted discount rates. Regardless of the valuation inputs we apply, the objective of fair value measurement for assets is unchanged from what it would be if markets were operating at normal activity levels and/or transactions were orderly; that is, to determine the current exit price.

See Note 3 for further discussion on fair value measurements.

Interest for these loans is recognized as revenue when earned and deemed collectible or until a loan becomes more than 90 days past due, at which point the loan is placed on nonaccrual status and any accrued interest is reversed against interest income. When a seriously delinquent loan previously placed on nonaccrual status has been cured, meaning all delinquent principal and interest have been remitted by the borrower, the loan will be placed back on accrual status.

Redeemable Preferred stock

Issuance of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in 2014 Private Placement

During the first quarter of 2014, we issued 250,000 shares of convertible preferred stock for $250.0 million (“Series A Shares”) to institutional investors. Under the Certificate of Designations of the Series A Shares (the “Certificate”), we have the option to redeem all of the Series A Shares on March 15, 2020 and on each successive five-year anniversary of March 15, 2020 thereafter. In connection with these same redemption dates, each holder of our Series A Shares has the right to give notice requesting us to redeem all of the Series A Shares held by such holder out of legally available funds. In accordance with the terms of the Certificate, if we have legally available funds to redeem all, but not less than all, of the Series A Shares requested to be redeemed on a redemption date, we will deliver to those holders who have requested redemption in accordance with the Certificate a notice of redemption. If we do not have legally available funds to redeem all, but not less than all, of the Series A Shares requested to be redeemed on a redemption date, we will not provide a notice of redemption. The redemption right will be exercisable in connection with each redemption date every five years until the mandatory redemption date in 2044. If we are required to redeem all of the holder's Series A Shares, we are required to do so for cash at a price equal to $1,000 per share (the issuance price) out of funds legally available therefor. Due to the redemption provisions of the Series A Preferred Stock, we classify these shares as mezzanine equity, outside of permanent stockholders' equity.

8


The holders of our Series A Shares are not entitled to receive dividends with respect to their Series A Shares. The Series A Shares are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $1,250 per share (or an exchange rate of 0.8 shares of common stock for Series A Share), subject to certain anti-dilution adjustments.

Upon certain change of control transactions or upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, holders of the Series A Shares will be entitled to receive an amount in cash per Series A Share equal to the greater of:

(i)  $1,000 plus the aggregate amount of cash dividends paid on the number of shares of common stock into which such Series A Shares were convertible on each ex-dividend date for such dividends; and
(ii)  The number of shares of common stock into which the Series A Shares are then convertible multiplied by the then-current market price of the common stock.

The Certificate confers no voting rights to holders, except with respect to matters that materially and adversely affect the voting powers, rights or preferences of the Series A Shares or as otherwise required by applicable law.

With respect to the distribution of assets upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, the Series A Shares rank senior to our common stock and on parity with all other classes of preferred stock that may be issued by us in the future.

The Series A Shares are recorded net of issuance costs, which were amortized on a straight-line basis through the first potential redemption date in March 2020.

Between January 31, 2020 and February 3, 2020, we received purported notices from all of the holders of our Series A Shares requesting us to redeem an aggregate of $250.0 million liquidation preference of our Series A Shares on March 15, 2020. We did not have legally available funds to redeem all of the Series A Shares on March 15, 2020. As a result, we do not believe, under the terms of the Certificate, that we were obligated to redeem any of the Series A Shares under the Certificate.

Current Litigation

Luxor (plaintiff) v. AAMC (defendant)

On February 3, 2020, Luxor filed a complaint in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, against AAMC for breach of contract, specific performance, unjust enrichment, and related damages and expenses. The complaint alleges that AAMC’s position that it will not redeem any of Luxor’s Series A Shares on the March 15, 2020 redemption date is a material breach of AAMC’s redemption obligations under the Certificate. Luxor seeks an order requiring AAMC to redeem its Series A Shares, recovery of no less than $144,212,000 in damages, which is equal to the amount Luxor would receive if AAMC redeemed all of Luxor’s Series A Shares at the redemption price of $1,000 per share set forth in the Certificate, as well as payment of its costs and expenses in the lawsuit. In the alternative, Luxor seeks a return of its initial purchase price of $150,000,000 for the Series A Shares, as well as payment of its costs and expenses in the lawsuit. On May 25, 2020, Luxor’s complaint was amended to add Putnam Equity Spectrum Fund and Putnam Capital Spectrum Fund (collectively, “Putnam”), which also invested in the Series A Shares, as plaintiff. On June 12, 2020, AAMC moved to dismiss the Amended Complaint in favor of AAMC’s first-filed declaratory judgment action in the U.S. Virgin Islands. On August 4, 2020, the court denied AAMC’s motion to dismiss. On February 17, 2021, in accordance with the terms of the Putnam Agreement described below, Putnam agreed to discontinue all claims against AAMC with prejudice related to the Series A shares. Luxor and AAMC have completed discovery in the action and summary judgment motions are currently scheduled to be filed by June 23, 2022.

AAMC (plaintiff) v. Luxor (defendant)

On January 27, 2020, AAMC filed a complaint for declaratory judgment relief in the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands, Division of St. Croix (“Superior Court”), against Luxor Capital Group, LP and certain of its funds and managed accounts (collectively, “Luxor”) regarding AAMC’s redemption obligations under the Certificate. Pursuant to the Certificate, holders of the Series A Shares are permitted on March 15, 2020 and on each successive five-year anniversary of March 15, 2020 to request AAMC, upon not less than 15 nor more than 30 business days’ prior notice, to redeem all but not less than all of their Series A Shares out of legally available funds. AAMC sought a declaration that AAMC is not required to redeem any of Luxor’s Series A Shares on a redemption date if AAMC does not have legally available funds to redeem all of Luxor’s Series A Shares on such redemption date. Luxor removed the action to the U.S District Court for the Virgin Islands, and, on March 24, 2020, AAMC moved to remand the action back to the Superior Court. On May 15, 2020, Luxor moved to dismiss AAMC's declaratory judgment complaint. Both motions had been fully briefed and submitted to the Court as of July 29, 2020. Due to
9


the more advanced status of the case in New York and the similar issues in the two cases, AAMC determined to terminate the action in the Superior Court and on May 5, 2022, the parties jointly filed a voluntary dismissal of the action without prejudice.

Luxor Books and Records Demand

On April 26, 2021, Luxor, sent a letter to the Company demanding, under the common law of the USVI, the right to inspect certain books and records of the Company (the “Demand”). According to Luxor, the purpose of the Demand is to investigate whether the Company’s Board of Directors may have considered or engaged in transactions with or at the direction of a significant shareholder of the Company or whether the Company’s Board of Directors and/or Company management may have mismanaged the Company or engaged in wrongdoing, may not have properly discharged their fiduciary duties, or may have conflicts of interest. Luxor further alleges that it seeks an inspection of the Company books and records to determine whether the current directors should continue to serve on the Company’s board or whether a derivative suit should be filed.

On May 10, 2021, the Company sent a letter responding to the Demand and declining to provide the Company’s books and records for inspection (the “Response”). The Response states that Luxor does not have a credible basis for the Demand, which is required under the USVI common law; that, as preferred shareholders with no voting rights, Luxor’s purpose for the Demand is not reasonably related to Luxor’s interests as shareholders of the Company because Luxor cannot vote in connection with Board elections or business transactions of the Company; and that Luxor’s Demand serves only to personally benefit Luxor in its private suit against the Company.

AAMC intends to continue to pursue its strategic business initiatives despite this litigation. If Luxor were to prevail in its lawsuit, we may need to cease or curtail our business initiatives and our liquidity could be materially and adversely affected

Settlement Activities

On February 17, 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement dated as of February 17, 2021 (the “Putnam Agreement”) with Putnam. Pursuant to the Putnam Agreement, AAMC and Putnam exchanged all of Putnam’s 81,800 Series A Shares for 288,283 shares of AAMC’s common stock. Additionally, AAMC paid Putnam $1,636,000 within three business days of the effective date of the Putnam Agreement and $1,227,000 on the one-year anniversary of the effective date of the Putnam Agreement, and in return Putnam released AAMC from all claims related to the Series A Shares and enter into a voting rights agreement as more fully described in the Putnam Agreement. Finally, AAMC granted to Putnam a most favored nations provision with respect to future settlements of the Series A Shares. As a result of this settlement, we recognized a one-time gain directly to Additional paid in capital of $71.9 million in the first quarter of 2021.

On August 27, 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the “Wellington Agreement”) with certain funds managed by Wellington Management Company LLP (collectively, “Wellington”). Under the Wellington Agreement, the Company paid Wellington $2,093,000 in exchange for 18,200 Series A Shares ($18.2 million of liquidation preference) held by Wellington, and in return Wellington agreed to release AAMC from all claims related to the Series A Shares. As a result of this settlement, we recognized a one-time gain directly to Additional paid in capital of $16.1 million gain in the third quarter of 2021.

On January 6, 2022, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") with two institutional investors. Under the Settlement Agreement, the Company paid the institutional investors approximately $665 thousand in cash in exchange for 5,788 Series A shares ($5.79 million of liquidation preference) held by the institutional investors. As a result of this settlement, the Company recognized a gain of approximately $5.1 million to Additional paid in capital in the first quarter of 2022.

Recently issued accounting standards

Recently issued accounting standards adopted

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes - Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (Topic 740), which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. Our adoption of this standard in the first quarter of 2022 did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

10


Recently issued accounting standards not yet adopted

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting,” which provides practical expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The expedients and exceptions provided by the amendments in this update apply only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference the London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate expected to be discontinued as a result of reference rate reform. These amendments are not applicable to contract modifications made and hedging relationships entered into or evaluated after December 31, 2022. ASU No. 2020-04 is effective as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022 and may be applied to contract modifications and hedging relationships from the beginning of an interim period that includes or is subsequent to March 12, 2020. We will adopt this standard when LIBOR is discontinued. We are evaluating the impact the new standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, but do not anticipate a material impact.

2. Discontinued Operations

Our primary client prior to December 31, 2020 had been Front Yard Residential Corporation (“Front Yard”), a public real estate investment trust (“REIT”) focused on acquiring and managing quality, affordable single-family rental (“SFR”) properties throughout the United States. All of our revenue for all periods presented prior to December 31, 2021 was generated through our asset management agreements with Front Yard.

On August 13, 2020, AAMC and Front Yard entered into a Termination and Transition Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company and Front Yard have agreed to effectively internalize the asset management function of Front Yard. The Termination Agreement provided that the Amended AMA would terminate following a transition period to enable the internalization of Front Yard’s asset management function, allow for the assignment of certain vendor contracts and implement the transfer of certain employees to Front Yard and the training of required replacement employees at each company. In addition, Front Yard acquired the equity interests of AAMC's Indian subsidiary, the equity interests of AAMC's Cayman Islands subsidiary, the right to solicit and hire designated AAMC employees that oversaw the management of Front Yard's business and other assets of AAMC that were used in connection with the operation of Front Yard's business.

The transition period ended at the close of business, December 31, 2020, the time that AAMC and Front Yard mutually agreed that all required transition activities had been successfully completed (the “Termination Date”). On the Termination Date, the Amended AMA terminated, and the Company completed the assignment of our lease in Charlotte, North Carolina to Front Yard. Additionally, on December 31, 2020, we completed the sale of our Cayman Islands subsidiary. On January 1, 2021, in connection with the Termination Agreement, the Company completed the sale of our India subsidiary.

The Company had no assets and liabilities related to our discontinued operations that constituted the Disposal Group at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Discontinued operations includes (i) the management fee revenues generated under our asset management agreements with Front Yard, (ii) expense reimbursements from Front Yard and the underlying expenses, (iii) the results of operations of our India and Cayman Islands subsidiaries, (iv) the employment costs associated with certain individuals wholly dedicated to Front Yard and (v) the costs associated with our lease in Charlotte, North Carolina, that was assumed by Front Yard on December 31, 2020. The operating results of these items are presented in our consolidated statements of operations as discontinued operations for all periods presented and revenues and expenses directly related to discontinued operations were eliminated from our ongoing operations.

3. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Our initial loan portfolio was acquired on March 31, 2022. As these loans were purchased on the balance sheet date, the purchase price of the loans is deemed to be the fair market value. Future changes in fair value will be recurring and reported through our condensed consolidated statements of operations on a quarterly basis in the period of the change. Of the loans purchased, 2 loans represent 65% of the outstanding balance as of March 31, 2022.

For financial reporting purposes of our alternative loans, we will follow a fair value hierarchy established under GAAP that is used to determine the fair value of financial instruments. This hierarchy prioritizes relevant market inputs in order to determine an "exit price" at the measurement date, or at the price at which an asset could be sold or a liability could be transferred in an orderly process that is not a forced liquidation or distressed sale. Level 1 inputs are observable inputs that reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets. Level 2 inputs are observable inputs other than quoted prices for an assets or liabilities that are obtained through corroboration with observable market data. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs (e.g., our own data or assumptions) that are used when there is little, if any, relevant market activity for the asset or liability required to be measured at fair value.

In certain cases, inputs used to measure fair value fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, the level at which the fair value measurement falls is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input requires judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability being measured.

The following table presents the assets that are reported at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022, as well as the fair value of hierarchy of the valuation inputs used to measure fair value. We did not have any assets that were reported at fair value as of December 31, 2021. We did not have any liabilities to report as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had no securities outstanding. We did not transfer any assets from one level to another level during the year ended December 31, 2021.

Investment gains/losses in the three months ended of 2021 and 2020 are summarized as follows ($ in thousands):

Investment gains and losses include unrealized gains and losses from changes in fair values during the period on positions that we owned in 2021, as well as gains and losses on positions sold during the period. As reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows, we received proceeds from sales of Front Yard common stock of $47.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2021. No proceeds were received in three months ended March 31, 2022 because no investments were held. In the preceding table, investment gains/losses on equity securities sold during the period reflect the difference between the sales proceeds and the fair value of the equity securities sold at the beginning of the applicable quarterly period.



4. Borrowings
13


In 2021, the Company began borrowing under a standard margin arrangement with our banking institution. The margin account is secured by the securities held in our brokerage account with this institution. We paid interest on all of our borrowings each month when a balance was owed. All indebtedness on the margin agreement was paid off as of December 31, 2021. The Company had no borrowings outstanding at March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.

5. Leases

We lease office space under operating leases in Christiansted, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Bengaluru, India.

As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, our weighted average remaining lease term, including applicable extensions, was 4.8 years and 5.1 years, respectively, and we applied a discount rate of 7.0% and 7.0%, respectively, to our office leases. We determine the discount rate for each lease to be either the discount rate stated in the lease agreement or our estimated rate that we would be charged to finance real estate assets.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, we recognized rent expense of $49,000 and $50,000, related to long-term operating leases, respectively. We have had no short-term rent expense in March 31, 2022 and 2021 reporting periods. We include rent expense as a component of general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. We had no finance leases during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

We do not currently have any reserves for our legal proceedings.  The following updates and restates the description of the previously reported matters:

Litigation regarding Luxor Capital Group, LP and certain of its managed funds and accounts ("Luxor")

Please refer to Note 1 – Section Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in 2014 Private Placement.

Executive Arbitrations

Former Chief Executive Officer, Indroneel Chatterjee

On May 3, 2021, Mr. Chatterjee, commenced an arbitration against the Company and each of its directors. The arbitration complaint alleges that the Company’s April 16, 2021 for cause termination of Mr. Chatterjee was in breach of Mr. Chatterjee’s
14

Amended and Restated Employment Agreement and made extra contractual claims against the Company for not affording Mr. Chatterjee a “fair procedure” and placed him in a “false light” by disclosing Mr. Chatterjee’s termination in its public announcement of the for cause termination. In addition, the arbitration complaint also asserts a tort claim against each of the Company’s directors relating to that termination and against the Company for its April 16, 2021 public announcement of the for cause termination. Mr. Chatterjee’s arbitration complaint seeks unspecified damages for his contract claims including for loss of income, stock and bonus, and punitive damages on his tort claims. On June 10, 2021, the Company and its directors responded to the arbitration complaint and advanced counterclaims against Mr. Chatterjee. On October 20, 2021, the arbitrator granted the Company’s motion to dismiss with respect to Mr. Chatterjee’s “fair procedure” and “false light” claims, but denied the motion to dismiss the tort claim against each of the directors. The arbitrator has set a trial date for October 24-28, 2022. The Company and the directors intend to vigorously defend the claims.

Erbey Holding Corporation et al. v. Blackrock Management Inc., et al.

On April 12, 2018, a partial stockholder derivative action was filed in the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands, Division of St. Croix under the caption Erbey Holding Corporation, et al. v. Blackrock Financial Management Inc., et al. The action was filed by Erbey Holding Corporation (“Erbey Holding”), John R. Erbey Family Limited Partnership (“JREFLP”), by its general partner Jupiter Capital, Inc., Salt Pond Holdings, LLC (“Salt Pond”), Munus, L.P. (“Munus”), Carisma Trust (“Carisma”), by its trustee, Venia, LLC, and Tribue Limited Partnership (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”) each on its own behalf and Salt Pond and Carisma derivatively on behalf of AAMC. The action was filed against Blackrock Financial Management, Inc., Blackrock Investment Management, LLC, Blackrock Investments, LLC, Blackrock Capital Management, Inc., Blackrock, Inc. (collectively, “Blackrock”), Pacific Investment Management Company LLC, PIMCO Investments LLC (collectively, “PIMCO”) and John and Jane Does 1-10 (collectively with Blackrock and PIMCO, the “Defendants”). The action alleges a conspiracy by Blackrock and PIMCO to harm Ocwen Financial Corporation (“Ocwen”) and AAMC and certain of their subsidiaries, affiliates and related companies and to extract enormous profits at the expense of Ocwen and AAMC by attempting to damage their operations, business relationships and reputations. The complaint alleges that Defendants’ conspiratorial activities, which included short-selling activities, were designed to destroy Ocwen and AAMC, and that the Plaintiffs (including AAMC) suffered significant injury, including but not limited to lost value of their stock and/or stock holdings. The action seeks, among other things, an award of monetary damages to AAMC, including treble damages under Section 605, Title IV of the Virgin Islands Code related to the Criminally Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, punitive damages and an award of attorney’s and other fees and expenses.

Defendants have moved to dismiss the first amended verified complaint. Plaintiffs and AAMC have moved for leave to file a second amended verified complaint to include AAMC as a direct plaintiff, rather than as a derivative party. On March 27, 2019, the Court held oral argument on Defendants' motions to dismiss the first amended verified complaint and Plaintiffs' motion for leave to file the second amended verified complaint. The Court held additional oral argument on the pending motions on October 25, 2021. The Court has not yet decided the pending motions.

At this time, we are not able to predict the ultimate outcome of this matter, nor can we estimate the range of possible damages to be awarded to AAMC, if any. As such, we have not recorded a liability for this matter at March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic in the United States and globally, our business, our employees and the economy as a whole could be adversely impacted. The magnitude and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our cash flows and future results of operations could potentially be significant and will largely depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, the success of actions taken to contain or treat the pandemic, and reactions by consumers, companies, governmental entities and capital markets.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had significant effects on global markets, supply chains, businesses and communities. As a result of increased COVID-19 vaccination rates and significant reopening of the economy, related risks appear to have decreased. Nevertheless, the Company has taken appropriate actions to mitigate the negative impact the virus has on the Company by reducing employee travel, allowing employees to work remotely, and canceling in-person meetings when possible.

7. Share-Based Payments

On September 20, 2021, we granted 3,000 shares of restricted stock to management with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $24.83. The restricted stock units will vest in three equal annual installments on September 20, 2022, 2023 and 2024 subject to forfeiture or acceleration.

On June 28, 2021, we granted 5,000 shares of restricted stock to management with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $19.64. The restricted stock units will vest in three equal annual installments on June 28, 2022, 2023 and 2024 subject to forfeiture or acceleration.

On February 24, 2021, we granted 82,671 shares of restricted stock to members of management with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $26.25. The restricted stock units immediately vested.

On October 15, 2020, we granted 10,000 shares of restricted stock to former members of management with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $19.29. The restricted stock units were to vest in three equal annual installments, on October 15, 2021, 2022, and 2023. These shares were forfeited in April 2021 upon their resignations.

On January 30, 2020, in order to induce our former Chief Executive Officer to join the Company, we granted 60,000 shares of restricted stock and 60,000 stock options to our former Chief Executive Officer. The restricted stock and stock options had a weighted average grant date fair value of $13.11 and $10.61, respectively. The restricted stock units will vest in three equal annual installments on January 30, 2021, 2022, and 2023. On April 16, 2021, the former Chief Executive Officer was terminated for cause, and as a result, 40,000 unvested restricted stock units and 60,000 unvested options were forfeited at that date.

Our Directors each receive annual grants of restricted stock equal to $60,000 based on the market value of our common stock at the time of the annual stockholders meeting. These shares of restricted stock vest and are issued after a one-year service period, subject to each Director attending at least 75% of the Board and committee meetings. During 2021, we granted 7,236 shares of stock pursuant to our Equity Incentive Plans with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $24.88.

We recorded $0.07 million and $2.4 million of compensation expense related to our share-based compensation for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we had an aggregate $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively, of total unrecognized share-based compensation cost to be recognized over a weighted average remaining estimated term of 1.0 years and 1.2 years, respectively.

8. Income Taxes

We are domiciled in the USVI and are obligated to pay taxes to the USVI on our income. We applied for tax benefits from the USVI Economic Development Commission (“EDC”) and received our certificate of benefits (the “Certificate”), effective as of February 1, 2013. Pursuant to the Certificate, as long as we comply with its provisions, we will receive a 90% tax credit on our USVI-sourced income taxes until 2043. By letter dated December 21, 2020, the EDC approved a temporary waiver (the “Waiver”) of the Company’s minimum employment requirements to five full-time USVI employees for the period from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.

At March 31, 2022, the Company had two less USVI employees than what is required under the provisions of the Waiver. The Company is also continuing to seek to hire USVI employees to meet the requirements of the Waiver. The Company's Chief Financial Officer and General Counsel have relocated to the USVI. They will be eligible USVI employees after one year of residency. The Company has hired Jason Kopcak as President and Chief Operating Officer who will begin his employment on or before May 15, 2022. At that time, Mr. Kopcak will relocate to the USVI and will also be an eligible USVI employee after one year of residency.

As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we accrued no interest or penalties associated with any unrecognized tax benefits, nor did we recognize any interest expense or penalties during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

The Company recorded tax expense of $5,000 on a book loss of $3.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2022. The material differences between the effective tax rate and the statutory tax rate are the EDC benefit discussed above and the fact that the USVI EDC is in a full valuation allowance position and incurred a current quarter loss.

10. Segment Information

Our primary business prior to December 31, 2020 was to provide asset management and certain corporate governance services to institutional investors. Because substantially all of our revenue was derived from the services we provided to Front Yard, we operated as a single segment focused on providing asset management and corporate governance services.

Currently, ALG is our primary segment which we will be growing in 2022.

11. Subsequent Events

Management has evaluated the impact of all subsequent events through the issuance of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements and has determined that there were no subsequent events requiring adjustment or disclosure in the financial statements.

Item 2. Management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations

Our Business

Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“we,” “our,” “us” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the United States Virgin Islands (“USVI”) on March 15, 2012 (our "inception"), and we commenced operations in December 2012. In October 2013, we applied for and were granted registration by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as a registered investment adviser under Section 203(c) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. We historically operated in a single segment focused on providing asset management and certain corporate governance services to investment vehicles. Our primary client was Front Yard Residential Corporation ("Front Yard"), a public real estate investment trust ("REIT") focused on acquiring and managing quality, affordable single-family rental ("SFR") properties throughout the United States.

On August 13, 2020, we entered into a Termination and Transition Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) with Front Yard and Front Yard Residential L.P. (“FYR LP”) to terminate the Amended and Restated Asset Management Agreement, dated as of May 7, 2019 (the “Amended AMA”), by and among Front Yard, FYR LP and AAMC, and to provide for a transition plan to facilitate the internalization of Front Yard’s asset management function (the “Transition Plan”). The Termination Agreement was effective on December 31, 2020, the date that the parties mutually agreed that the Transition Plan had been satisfactorily completed (the “Termination Date”) and, the Amended AMA was terminated in its entirety.

As disclosed in our public filings, the Company’s prior business operations ceased in the first week of 2021. During 2021, the Company engaged in a comprehensive search to acquire an operating company with the proceeds received from the sale of its operations in accordance with the Termination Agreement. A range of industries were included in the search, including, but not limited to, real estate lending, cryptocurrency, block-chain technology and insurance operations. Outside professional firms, including among others, Cowen and Company, LLC, an investment bank, and Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, a global law practice, were engaged to provide due diligence, legal and valuation expertise to assist in our search.

Ultimately, in March 2022, AAMC determined to move forward with the newly created Alternative Lending Group (ALG) and grow organically and to pursue an opportunity related to Crypto ATMs.

With a capital commitment of $40 million to grow the operations of ALG, the Company intends to perform the following:

Build out a niche origination platform as well as a loan acquisition team;
Fund the originated or acquired alternative loans from a combination of Company equity and future lines of credit;
Sell the originated and acquired alternative loans through forward commitment and repurchase contracts;
Leverage senior management’s expertise in this space; and
Utilize AAMC’s existing operations in India to drive controls and cost efficiencies.

The type of product we expect to originate or acquire are alternative loans that offer opportunities for rapid growth and allow us to tap into underserved markets. We intend to stay agile on the loan product mix, but we are currently focused on markets not addressed by banks, agency aggregators and most traditional lenders, including but not limited to:

Transitional Loans: bridge loans on single family and commercial real estate;
Ground-up Construction Loans: assisting developers in projects with the primary focus on workforce housing;
Investor Loans: Non-agency loans on investment rental properties that are debt service coverage ratio type loans;
Special Purpose Credit Programs: loans to extend special purpose credit to applicants who meet certain eligibility requirements such as credit assistance programs; and
“Gig Economy” Loans: Loans to professionals, self-employed borrowers, start-up business owners lacking income documentation to qualify for Agency purchase.

In the near future, we expect our main business segment to be ALG, whose primary sources of income will be derived from mortgage banking activities generated through the origination and acquisition of loans, and their subsequent sale or securitization as well as net interest income from loans while held on the balance sheet.

19


In addition to ALG operations, AAMC will also invest capital into a Crypto ATM business through its Right of First Refusal Agreement with the cryptocurrency company, ForumPay, with the intent to deploy crypto enabled ATMs worldwide. The Crypto ATMs using ForumPay's software will generally allow users to purchase multiple cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, using fiat currency, sell the same cryptocurrencies and eventually remit payments globally either in cryptocurrency or the local fiat currency. The Company will earn revenue by charging fees for utilizing the ATMs for exchange between cryptocurrency and local fiat currency.

The Right of First Refusal Agreement includes the following provisions:

Co-marketing efforts between AAMC and ForumPay;
ForumPay to provide advanced technology that includes:
Cash purchases of cryptocurrencies;
Cryptocurrency conversions to cash (in local currency);
Capacity to fund remittances to third parties (in crypto or local currencies); and
AAMC will be responsible for ATM hardware, installation, maintenance, operation and insurance.

We will initially invest $2.0 million and plan to invest more as the opportunity warrants.

For a discussion of the risks associated with the Company's new business, see Item 1A - “Risk Factors” in Part II of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Metrics Affecting our Consolidated Results

Our operating results are affected by various factors and market conditions, including the following:

Expenses

Our expenses consist primarily of salaries and employee benefits, legal and professional fees, and general and administrative expenses and acquisition charges. Salaries and employee benefits include the base salaries, incentive bonuses, medical coverage, retirement benefits, non-cash share-based compensation and other benefits provided to our employees for their services. Legal and professional fees include services provided by third-party attorneys, accountants and other service providers of a professional nature. General and administrative expenses include costs related to the general operation and overall administration of our business as well as non-cash share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards to our Directors. Acquisition charges reflect professional fees incurred solely for the purpose of assisting the Company in the identification of target companies and subsequent due diligence, valuation, and deal structuring services required to properly assess the viability of the target companies.

Other Income

Other income primarily relates to income generated from marketable securities acquired and sold by the Company either through the Front Yard transaction, primarily in 2020 or on the public market in 2021.

Results of Operations

The following sets forth discussion of our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

Results of Continuing Operations

The following discussion compares our results of continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to three months ended March 31, 2021. Our results of operations for the periods presented are not indicative of our expected results in future periods.

Salaries and Employee Benefits

Salaries and employee benefits were $0.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $3.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021. This decrease is primarily due to restricted stock grants which were issued and vested in February 2021.

Legal, Acquisition and Professional Fees

Legal fees increased slightly to $1.4 million from $1.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. This increase is primarily due to legal and consulting fees related to the Luxor litigation and employment issues. We incurred $0.4 million and zero as acquisition costs in three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Professional fees decreased to $0.3 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses decreased slightly to $0.7 million from $0.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Change in Fair Value of Front Yard Common Stock

The change in fair value of Front Yard common stock was $0.0 million and $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. These changes in fair value were due solely to changes in the market price of Front Yard's common stock, as reported on the New York Stock Exchange. Upon the closing of the Front Yard merger in January 2021, the Company received cash in exchange for shares held.

Dividend and Gain on Sale Income

No dividends were received in three months ended March 31, 2022, because no REIT equity securities were held during that period. Dividend income was $2.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021 on REIT equity securities. No gains were recognized on REIT equity securities during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively

Results of Discontinued Operations

On August 13, 2020, we and Front Yard entered into the Termination Agreement, pursuant to which they have agreed to effectively internalize the asset management function of Front Yard. The termination of the Amended AMA and the sale of the certain assets and operations to Front Yard represents a significant strategic shift that will have a major effect on our operations and financial results. Therefore, we have classified the results of our operations related to Front Yard as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Discontinued operations includes (i) the management fee revenues generated under our asset management agreements with Front Yard, (ii) expense reimbursements from Front Yard and the underlying expenses, (iii) the results of operations of our India and Cayman Islands subsidiaries, (iv) the employment costs associated with certain individuals wholly dedicated to Front Yard and (v) the costs associated with our lease in Charlotte, North Carolina, that was assumed by Front Yard. On January 1, 2021, we completed the sale of the remainder of the Disposal Group and recorded a pre-tax gain on disposal of $7.5 million. See Item 1 - Financial statements (unaudited) - “Note 2. Discontinued Operations” for further information.

We had no results from discontinued operations in the three months ended March 31, 2022.

21


Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2022, we had cash and cash equivalents of $54.4 million compared to cash and cash equivalents of $78.3 million as of December 31, 2021. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to the purchase of loans in the ALG. At December 31, 2021, we held no Front Yard common stock. We are developing new sources of income through our strategic business plan. We believe these sources of liquidity are sufficient to enable us to meet anticipated short-term (one-year) liquidity requirements. Our ongoing cash expenditures consist of: salaries and employee benefits, legal and professional fees, lease obligations and other general and administrative expenses.

As referred to in Note 1 in our consolidated financial statements, the Company has settled with certain owners of its Series A Shares which has reduced the outstanding balance from $250 million to approximately $144 million. The remaining outstanding Series A Shares are owned by Luxor in which we are currently in litigation over various claims.

AAMC intends to continue to pursue its strategic business initiatives despite this litigation. See “Our Company.” If Luxor were to prevail in its lawsuit, we may need to cease or curtail our business initiatives and our liquidity could be materially and adversely affected. For more information on the legal proceedings with Luxor, see “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and “Item 3. Legal Proceedings” in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Loans held for investment, at fair value

On March 31, 2022, we purchased $17.7 million in loans upon the creation of ALG. These loans primarily relate to business purpose bridge loans for the positioning of real estate properties.

Equity Securities

Between February 9, 2021 and February 17, 2021, we purchased $97.0 million of equity securities with $68 million of cash on hand and $29 million borrowed under a standard margin arrangement with our banking institution. As of March 31, 2022, all equity securities had been liquidated and the standard margin arrangement was paid in full.

Treasury Shares

At March 31, 2022, a total of $268.7 million in shares of our common stock had been repurchased under the authorization by our Board of Directors to repurchase up to $300.0 million in shares of our common stock. Repurchased shares are held as treasury stock and are available for general corporate purposes. We have an aggregate of $31.3 million remaining available for repurchases under our Board-approved repurchase plan.

Market risk includes risks that arise from changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates, commodity prices, equity prices and other market changes that affect market sensitive instruments.

Item 4. Controls and procedures

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company's filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report.

Limitations on Controls

Our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives as specified above. Management does not expect, however, that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and fraud. Any control system, no matter how well designed and operated, is based upon certain assumptions and can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that its objectives will be met.
