Colony Credit Real Estate, Inc. Announces

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

LOS ANGELES, August 8, 2019 – Colony Credit Real Estate, Inc. (NYSE: CLNC) (“Colony Credit Real Estate” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Kevin P. Traenkle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Colony Credit Real Estate commented, “We are pleased with our second quarter progress towards delivering a stabilized portfolio of core holdings. Originations activity, portfolio rationalization efforts and quarter-over-quarter in-place core earnings growth all continue on a positive trajectory, despite deterioration in market conditions during the quarter impacting select non-core, low-yielding positions within our portfolio.”

Mr. Traenkle added, “We have been prioritizing earnings growth through the deployment of our excess liquidity and rotating out of select assets that provided minimal and in some cases no yield. Through new and existing borrower relationships, we’ve committed approximately $1.2 billion in new investments year-to-date and $3.4 billion since listing 18 months ago. Over this short period, this primary focus has resulted in an approximately 20% increase in annualized Core Earnings excluding gains and losses from $170 million to $203 million. Our excess liquidity has been converted primarily into high quality loans and other target assets, generating attractive yields. The focus of management is to deliver a stabilized steady state portfolio by continuing to drive operating results, including new originations, portfolio management and earnings growth.”

Mr. Traenkle continued, “From the onset of launching Colony Credit Real Estate, the plan as articulated has consistently been to rotate out of non-core assets, including the sale of our real estate private equity interests and other opportunistic asset dispositions. Significantly, the Company has reduced its exposure to non-core assets identified at the time of listing by over 50%. Pursuing this portfolio rationalization strategy may impact our interim financial statements; however, we are confident in our ability to execute the transition, continue to grow earnings and close the gap between current share price and net asset value.”

Second Quarter 2019 Significant Developments and Subsequent Events

 

   

Second quarter 2019 GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(107.3) million, or $(0.84) per common share, and core earnings of $36.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share.

During the second quarter, recorded $119 million of loan loss provisions at CLNC ownership share related to four separate borrowers and a $10 million impairment of real estate held for investment at CLNC ownership share, resulting from changes in market conditions during the quarter, including a reduction in the estimated holding period

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definitions

Core Earnings

We present Core Earnings, which is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure of our performance. We believe that Core Earnings provides meaningful information to consider in addition to our net income and cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP” or “GAAP”). This supplemental financial measure helps us to evaluate our performance excluding the effects of certain transactions and U.S GAAP adjustments that we believe are not necessarily indicative of our current portfolio and operations. We also use Core Earnings to determine the incentive fees we pay to our Manager. For information on the fees we pay our Manager, see Note 11, “Related Party Arrangements” to our consolidated financial statements included in Form 10-Q to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In addition, we believe that our investors also use Core Earnings or a comparable supplemental performance measure to evaluate and compare the performance of us and our peers, and as such, we believe that the disclosure of Core Earnings is useful to our investors.

We define Core Earnings as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) attributable to our common stockholders (or, without duplication, the owners of the common equity of our direct subsidiaries, such as our OP) and excluding (i) non-cash equity compensation expense, (ii) the expenses incurred in connection with our formation, (iii) the incentive fee, (iv) acquisition costs from successful acquisitions, (v) depreciation and amortization, (vi) any unrealized gains or losses or other similar non-cash items that are included in net income for the current quarter, regardless of whether such items are included in other comprehensive income or loss, or in net income, (vii) one-time events pursuant to changes in U.S. GAAP and (viii) certain material non-cash income or expense items that in the judgment of management should not be included in Core Earnings. For clauses (vii) and (viii), such exclusions shall only be applied after discussions between our Manager and our independent directors and after approval by a majority of our independent directors. Core Earnings reflects adjustments to U.S. GAAP net income to exclude impairment of real estate and provision for loan losses. Such impairment and losses may ultimately be realized, in part or full, upon a sale or monetization of the related investments and such realized losses would be reflected in Core Earnings.

Core Earnings does not represent net income or cash generated from operating activities and should not be considered as an alternative to U.S. GAAP net income or an indication of our cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, a measure of our liquidity, or an indication of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. In addition, our methodology for calculating Core Earnings may differ from methodologies employed by other companies to calculate the same or similar non-GAAP supplemental financial measures, and accordingly, our reported Core Earnings may not be comparable to the Core Earnings reported by other companies.

The Company calculates Core Earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, based on a weighted average number of common shares and operating partnership units (held by members other than the Company or its subsidiaries).
