– Total Production of $194.8 Million of Loan Commitments –

– Industry Leading Balance Sheet with $223.4 Million of Cash –

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Broadmark Realty Capital Inc. (NYSE: BRMK) (the “Company”), an internally managed secured real estate finance company, today announced operating results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Jeff Pyatt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadmark, commented, “We were pleased to conclude the year with another quarter of accelerating originations and risk reducing amendments, that reached over $190 million in total commitments. Within our current markets and beyond, we see ongoing opportunity to expand our reach and gain market share in the highly fragmented specialty residential lending industry. Our market fundamentals remain highly attractive, with sustained population inflows and present housing deficits leading to significant and growing demand for construction, which in turn drives demand for our loans. With our substantial liquidity and new revolving credit facility for cash management, we are well positioned to deploy our capital to meet that demand.”

“Despite the challenges of 2020, we believe we executed exceptionally well, supported by our best-in-class balance sheet, disciplined underwriting, and, most of all, the hard work and dedication of our team. We look forward to building on our success in 2021 and beyond, growing our reputation as a lender of choice and creating additional value for our stockholders,” Mr. Pyatt concluded.

BROADMARK REALTY CAPITAL INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO DISTRIBUTABLE EARNINGS
(in thousands, except for per share amounts)

Definition of Distributable Earnings

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020, and for all subsequent reporting periods ending on or after December 31, 2020, to more appropriately reflect the principal purpose of the measure, the Company has elected to present “distributable earnings”, a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by management to evaluate the Company’s performance. Distributable earnings replaces the Company’s prior presentation of “core earnings”. The Company defines distributable earnings as net income attributable to common stockholders adjusted for: (i) impairment recorded on the Company’s investments; (ii) unrealized gains or losses on the Company’s investments (including provision for credit losses); (iii) non-capitalized transaction-related expenses and first year public company transition expenses; (iv) non-cash stock-based compensation; (v) depreciation and amortization of the Company’s intangible assets; and (vi) deferred taxes, which are subject to variability and generally not indicative of future economic performance or representative of current operations.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded a $4.5 million increase in the CECL allowance through provision expense, which has been excluded from distributable earnings consistent with other unrealized gains (losses) pursuant to the Company’s policy for reporting core earnings. Unlike in its historic presentation of core earnings, the Company expects to recognize such potential credit losses in distributable earnings if and when such amounts are deemed nonrecoverable upon a realization event. This is generally at the time a loan is repaid and an amount of principal outstanding is charged-off, or in the case of foreclosure, when the underlying asset is sold and the amount of proceeds is less than the principal outstanding at the time of foreclosure.

Management believes that the adjustments to compute “distributable earnings” specified above allow investors and analysts to readily identify and track the operating performance of the Company’s assets, assist in comparing the operating results between periods, and enable investors to evaluate the Company’s current performance using the same measure that management uses to operate the business. Distributable earnings excludes certain recurring items, such as unrealized gains and losses (including provision for credit losses) and non-capitalized transaction-related expenses, because they are not considered by management to be part of the Company’s primary operations for the reasons described herein. As such, distributable earnings is not intended to reflect all of the Company’s activity and should be considered as only one of the factors used by management in assessing the Company’s performance, along with GAAP net income which is inclusive of all of the Company’s activities.

As a REIT, the Company is required to distribute at least 90% of its annual REIT taxable income and to pay tax at regular corporate rates to the extent that it annually distribute less than 100% of such taxable income. Given these requirements and it is believed that dividends are generally one of the principal reasons stockholders invest in its common stock, the Company generally intends to attempt to pay dividends to its stockholders in an amount equal to its net taxable income, if and to the extent authorized by the Company’s board of directors. Distributable earnings is one of many factors considered by the Company’s board of directors in declaring dividends and, while not a direct measure of taxable income, over time, the measure can be considered a useful indicator of the Company’s dividends.

Distributable earnings does not represent and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or as a substitute for, or superior to, cash flows from operating activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP, and the Company’s calculation of this measure may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other companies. The table below is a reconciliation of distributable earnings to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure:
