Stock market symbol
TSX: MKP

TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2015 /CNW/ - MCAN Mortgage Corporation ("MCAN", the "Company" or "we") reported strong third quarter 2015 earnings today. 

Q3 2015 Operating Results

Net income for the third quarter of 2015 was $7.2 million, up 48% from $4.9 million in the prior year, while earnings per share increased from $0.23 to $0.32.  Return on average shareholders' equity was 11.36% for the quarter, up from 8.74% in the prior year.

The increase in net income from the third quarter of 2014 was primarily due to higher securitization income from a significant increase in our participation in the market MBS program, higher equity income from MCAP in the current quarter and an increased recovery of deferred taxes, partially offset by a higher loss on realized and unrealized financial instruments.

Year to date net income increased to $23.4 million from $18.3 million in the prior year, primarily due to the items noted above for the third quarter.  For the year to date, earnings per share totalled $1.09, up from $0.89 per share in the prior year, while year to date return on average shareholders' equity increased from 11.10% to 13.02%.

Corporate assets totalled $1.09 billion at September 30, 2015, up $13 million from June 30, 2015.  Activity for the quarter included increases of $24 million in mortgages and $8 million in marketable securities and a decrease of $19 million in cash and cash equivalents.  Our corporate mortgage portfolio increased from $857 million at June 30, 2015 to $881 million at September 30, 2015, which included increases of $34 million in uninsured single family and $15 million in commercial loans and a decrease of $27 million in insured single family.  The growth in uninsured single family is due to the continued increase in volumes from our internal Xceed origination platform throughout 2015, while insured single family decreased as a result of high securitization volumes during the quarter.

We sold $182 million of new MBS through the market MBS program.  Income from the market MBS program increased significantly due to growth of 151% in the average market MBS mortgage portfolio balance. 

Net Investment Income - Corporate AssetsNet investment income from corporate assets was $9.0 million in the current quarter, up from $8.7 million in the prior year.

Mortgage interest income

Mortgage interest income decreased from $12.8 million in the prior year to $12.3 million in the current quarter.  The average mortgage portfolio balance decreased from $918 million to $902 million and the average mortgage portfolio yield decreased from 5.52% to 5.25%. The current quarter included discount income of $370,000 recognized on the payout of impaired uninsured single family mortgages that had been acquired as part of the acquisition of Xceed, which is excluded from the average mortgage portfolio yield as it is a non-recurring item.

The spread of our corporate mortgage yield over the term deposit average rate decreased from 3.07% in the prior year to 2.93% in the current quarter.  Lower market rates for the funding of new single family mortgages and a 0.30% decrease in the prime rate have both contributed to the decline in the average mortgage portfolio yield throughout 2015. 

The uninsured single family mortgage average portfolio increased significantly over the prior year as a result of the continued increase in volumes from our internal Xceed origination platform.  The decrease in the construction loan portfolio is a result of the measured approach that we took to new loan originations in early 2015 and the geographic rebalancing of the portfolio given the current economic uncertainty in Western Canada, in addition to us experiencing a steady volume of loan repayments.

Equity income from MCAP

Equity income from our investment in MCAP increased from $835,000 in the prior year to $2.0 million in the current quarter.  MCAP earned higher origination fees, gains on sales of mortgages and servicing fees in the current quarter.  MCAP's origination volumes were $4.5 billion in the third quarter of 2015.  MCAP had $51.5 billion of assets under administration as at August 31, 2015.  The current quarter may not be indicative of future results.  Our share of equity income from MCAP has historically varied from quarter to quarter as a result of seasonal variations in MCAP's mortgage fundings and short term changes in interest rate spreads that impact MCAP's gains on sales of mortgages and origination fees; however MCAP's annual earnings have been increasing with its growth in assets under administration and mortgage originations.

Realized and unrealized losses on financial instruments

We hedge mortgage funding commitments to mitigate interest rate risk by entering into forward starting interest rate swaps with a financial institution as part of this hedge.  If the hedged mortgage is securitized through the market MBS program, the offsetting economic gain (loss) is generally realized over the term of the mortgage through higher (lower) spread income.  MBS spreads were lower than usual in the current quarter issuances due to reduced demand for MBS in the market.  If the hedged mortgages are sold to third parties on a whole loan basis, offsetting gains or losses are recognized in the period that the mortgages are sold. 

The realized and unrealized loss on financial instruments was $1.4 million in the current quarter compared to a loss of $119,000 in the prior year. The current quarter loss was due to a 0.20% decrease in the interest rate on our forward starting swaps during the quarter.

Other net investment income

Fees consisting primarily of extension, renewal and letter of credit fees earned on our corporate mortgage portfolio, increased to $1.2 million in the current quarter from $713,000 in the prior year.  The increase is primarily due to a non-recurring deferred profit participation fee received on a commercial loan.

Term deposit interest and expenses decreased to $5.2 million in the current quarter from $5.3 million in the prior year.  The decrease was due to a drop in the average term deposit rate from 2.45% in the prior year to 2.32% in the current quarter, partially offset by the impact of a $28 million increase in the average term deposit balance from $822 million to $850 million.

Mortgage expenses, consisting primarily of mortgage servicing fees, decreased to $900,000 in the current quarter from $945,000 in the prior year as a result of a lower average mortgage portfolio. 

We recorded $149,000 of recoveries of credit losses during the quarter compared to $73,000 in the prior year.  In the current quarter, we had a $430,000 recovery of an individual allowance recorded against an impaired construction loan upon the sale of the underlying collateral.  This was partially offset by $313,000 of collective provisions recorded as a result of the significant increase in the corporate mortgage portfolio in the current quarter.  The prior year had a recovery of collective provisions due to a decrease in the corporate mortgage balance.  Net write-offs were $3,000 (0.1 basis points) in the current quarter, down from $4,000 (0.2 basis points) in the prior year.

Net Investment Income - Securitization AssetsNet investment income from securitization assets was $1.2 million in the current quarter compared to a loss of $96,000 in the prior year.  Net investment income from securitization assets relates to MCAN's participation in the market MBS program and, in the prior year, the Canada Mortgage Bonds ("CMB") program. For further details on these programs, refer to the "Securitization Programs" section of the Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A"). Net investment income from the market MBS program has increased in recent quarters as we have continued to securitize insured single family mortgages through this program. 

Market MBS Program

Net investment income from the market MBS program was $1,246,000 in the current quarter, up from $397,000 in the prior year.  Mortgage interest income was $6.9 million, up from $2.9 million in the prior year.  The average portfolio balance increased from $411 million to $1,030 million, while the average yield increased from 2.64% to 2.67%.  Interest on financial liabilities from securitization was $5.3 million in the current quarter, up from $2.3 million in the prior year.  The market MBS liability average balance increased from $417 million to $1,038 million while the average interest rate decreased from 2.24% to 2.02%.

We sold $182 million of MBS to third parties in the current quarter compared to $197 million in the prior year.  For the year to date, we have sold $500 million, up from $390 million in the prior year.

CMB Program

In the prior year, we incurred a net loss of $492,000 from the CMB program. 

Operating ExpensesOperating expenses were $3.6 million in the current quarter, unchanged from the prior year.  Salaries and benefits increased by $188,000 due to an increase in the number of employees, while general and administrative expenses decreased by $207,000 as a result of lower professional fees.

Income TaxesIn the current quarter we had a recovery of deferred taxes of $528,000 compared to a provision of $165,000 in the prior year.   

Taxable income was $6.9 million ($0.31 per share) in the current quarter compared to $584,000 ($0.03 per share) in the prior year.  The increase was due to higher taxable income from MCAP and lower MBS program upfront cash outflows in the current year.  In the current quarter, we incurred $3.1 million of up-front origination costs on mortgages securitized through the market MBS program, which are expensed for tax purposes and amortized for accounting purposes, compared to $3.4 million in the prior year. 

Credit QualityImpaired mortgages decreased from $5.7 million at June 30, 2015 to $3.7 million at September 30, 2015.  The total impaired mortgage ratio decreased from 0.27% to 0.15% during the quarter, while the corporate impaired mortgage ratio also decreased from 0.58% to 0.34%.

Impaired uninsured single family mortgages increased by $2.0 million during the quarter, relating primarily to mortgages in Ontario and one mortgage based in Alberta. Subsequent to quarter end, $586,000 of these mortgages were resolved by way of payout or return to non-arrears status.

Impaired construction loans decreased by $4.0 million during the quarter as a result of the resolution of a previously impaired residential construction loan upon the sale of the underlying collateral.  Arrears in this asset class can be volatile given the relatively low volume of loans and the significant individual loan sizes.

Corporate mortgage arrears were $27 million at September 30, 2015, down from $29 million at June 30, 2015.  Securitized mortgage arrears increased from $12 million to $13 million during the quarter.  Despite the economic volatility and continued weakness in oil prices and any potential impact across Canada, our total mortgage arrears have not increased significantly during 2015 and our impaired mortgage ratios have decreased.  We continue to diligently monitor mortgage arrears given current economic conditions.

Financial Position:  Total assets were $2.27 billion as at September 30, 2015, consisting of $1.09 billion of corporate assets and $1.18 billion of securitization assets.  Corporate assets increased by $13 million in the current quarter, which included increases of $24 million in mortgages and $8 million in marketable securities and a decrease of $19 million in cash and cash equivalents.  Our corporate mortgage portfolio increased from $857 million at June 30, 2015 to $881 million at September 30, 2015, which included increases of $34 million in uninsured single family and $15 million in commercial loans and a decrease of $27 million in insured single family. 

Securitization assets increased by $156 million during the quarter, primarily due to the securitization of $182 million of mortgages through the market MBS program less $26 million of net repayments. 

As we securitize mortgages into the market MBS program, assets are effectively transferred from corporate mortgages to securitized mortgages on the balance sheet.  The change contributes to changes in asset levels when corporate mortgages are securitized in the following quarter.

Term deposit liabilities were $857 million at September 30, 2015, up slightly from $854 million at June 30, 2015.

Financial liabilities from securitization were $1.16 billion at September 30, 2015, up from $1.0 billion at June 30, 2015.  The increase of $154 million in the current quarter consisted of $182 million of new liabilities issued through the market MBS program and a $28 million repayment of existing market MBS liabilities. 

During the quarter, we raised $15.1 million of new share capital through a rights offering in which 1,406,084 new common shares were issued.  The rights offering also created $87 million of additional income tax asset capacity.

Total shareholders' equity was $255 million at September 30, 2015, up from $238 million at June 30, 2015. Activity for the quarter included the above noted rights offering, net income of $7.2 million, the issuance of $1.5 million of new common shares through the dividend reinvestment plan, the payment of the third quarter dividend of $6.3 million and a decrease to accumulated other comprehensive income of $736,000.

DividendThe Board of Directors (the "Board") declared an increase to the quarterly dividend from $0.28 per share to $0.29 per share effective with the 2015 fourth quarter regular dividend to be paid January 4, 2016 to shareholders of record as of December 15, 2015. 

Asset CapacityAs at September 30, 2015, our remaining income tax asset capacity, based on our target income tax assets to capital ratio of 5.75, was $191 million.

Outlook:  We expect Canadian real estate markets to remain balanced for the remainder of 2015. We continue to observe some weakness in Alberta housing markets as the province adjusts to the lower oil prices and the employment concerns for the province.  We expect the majority of Canadian housing markets to remain in a balanced state with inventory levels at historical lows and strong consumer demand due to historically low mortgage rates. Housing markets are expected to encounter moderation and potential instability over the next few quarters as Canada adjusts to lower sale volumes in some markets such as Alberta. Financial markets have adjusted to the volatility within bond markets as a result of the rate cuts by the Bank of Canada and indications that further monetary policy changes are possible should economic conditions warrant such measures. The results of the federal election and new government policies could create further volatility in Canadian financial markets.

The Bank of Canada recently downgraded its economic outlook again as the country reacts to lower prices of oil and other commodities.  In July the Bank lowered its forecast for 2015 GDP growth to 1.1 percent from 2 percent. The Canadian economy is now expected to grow just 2 percent in 2016 and 2.5 percent in 2017.  The more realistic outlook is expected to delay eventual interest rate hikes in Canada. This continues to soften the impact on the housing market as lower rates are integrated into markets, facilitate increased consumer spending and stabilize economic growth.

he key concerns are low economic growth and that any increase in unemployment rates will have a spillover effect to consumer confidence. Housing markets continue to benefit from the low interest rate environment, relatively stable unemployment rates and restricted supply in our core markets. Volatility in the stock market and continued weakness in the global price of oil could have a negative influence on the economy for the latter part of 2015 and early 2016.  Although mortgage rates remain low, volatility within the long term bond market is expected to impact mortgage spreads.

Our growth strategy remains focused on our insured and uninsured single family mortgage portfolio sourced through our direct Xceed origination platform. As a result of the repositioning of our construction pipeline that was carried out through the first part of 2015, we expect the construction book to see growth in the coming quarters. Although our actual corporate asset growth rate of 6% was below our annualized 10% target of $78 million for the year to date, we believe that we have repositioned our origination strategy to account for the impact of the oil markets on Alberta housing, and we continue to observe origination growth in these asset classes and expect originations to remain steady through the remainder of the year.  We expect the origination and portfolio growth over the remainder of 2015 will allow us to grow our corporate assets, further diversify and re-balance our mortgage portfolio while optimizing returns and lowering our risk profile.

We expect construction activity to moderate nationally, with British Columbia and Ontario benefiting from the continued decline in the Canadian dollar and increased export gains on provincial GDP growth.  Following this year's rate cuts by the Bank of Canada and the recent downgraded growth projections for the Canadian economy, management continues to closely monitor our construction portfolio.  We believe that our portfolio remains well balanced with seasoned projects with strong presales and seasoned builders and developers.  We expect interest rates to remain at historic lows for the remainder of 2015.

We participated in the MBS securitization market with regular issuances throughout the third quarter of 2015. We expect volumes to moderate in the fourth quarter of 2015 as the mortgage market adjusts to a seasonally slower housing market and MBS spreads remain compressed. In the third quarter, we issued $182 million of new MBS. To date, we have retained the residual economics of the MBS (the "interest-only strip"). We regularly review the economics of this retention strategy and will assess the impact of future sales of a portion of the MBS interest-only strips going forward to facilitate portfolio growth.

Non-IFRS Measures:  The following metrics are considered to be Non-IFRS measures and are defined in the "Non-IFRS Measures" section of the MD&A:  Return on Average Shareholders' Equity, Taxable Income, Taxable Income Per Share, Average Interest Rate, Net Interest Income, Impaired Mortgage Ratios, Mortgage Arrears, Common Equity Tier 1, Tier 1 and Total Capital Ratios, Total Exposures, Regulatory Assets, Leverage Ratio, Assets to Capital Multiple; Risk Weighted Assets Ratios, Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Total Liquid Assets and Liquidity Ratios, Income Tax Assets, Income Tax Liabilities, Income Tax Capital, Income Tax Assets to Capital Ratio, Income Tax Asset Capacity, Market Capitalization, Book Value per Common Share and Limited Partner's At-Risk Amount.

MCAN is a public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the symbol MKP and is a reporting issuer in all provinces and territories in Canada.  MCAN also qualifies as a mortgage investment corporation ("MIC") under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act").

The Company's primary objective is to generate a reliable stream of income by investing its corporate funds in a portfolio of mortgages (including single family residential, residential construction, non-residential construction and commercial loans), as well as other types of financial investments, loans and real estate investments. MCAN employs leverage by issuing term deposits eligible for Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation ("CDIC") deposit insurance up to a maximum of five times capital (on a non-consolidated tax basis in the MIC entity) as permitted by the Tax Act.  The term deposits are sourced through a network of independent financial agents. As a MIC, MCAN is entitled to deduct from income for tax purposes 100% of dividends, except for capital gains dividends, which are deducted at 50%.  Such dividends are received by the shareholders as interest income and capital gains dividends, respectively.

MCAN's wholly-owned subsidiary, Xceed, focuses on the origination and sale to third party mortgage aggregators of residential first-charge mortgage products across Canada.  As such, Xceed operates primarily in one industry segment through its sales team and mortgage brokers.

MCAN also participates in the NHA MBS program.
