Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 10, 2022) – Atrium Mortgage Investment Corporation (TSX: AI) today released its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Highlights

  • Record mortgage portfolio of $817.0 million, a 6.5% increase from December 31, 2021

  • High quality mortgage portfolio

    • 91.9% of portfolio in first mortgages

    • 99.1% of portfolio is less than 75% loan to value

    • average loan-to-value is 62.3%

  • Quarterly net income of $10.7 million, up 0.5% from the comparative period

  • Quarterly basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.25

“We had a very busy Q2, with a record level of mortgage advances of $223.9 million and record repayments of $199.5 million in the quarter. We ended the second quarter with assets of $830.4 million and mortgages of $817.0 million, both being the highest recorded in Atrium’s history. We had record quarterly revenues of $18.2 million and earned $0.25 per share. The quality of our loan book remains strong, as evidenced by very low arrears levels, 99.1% of the mortgage portfolio being conventional mortgages (defined as less than 75% loan to value), and the portfolio loan to value average being only 62.3%. I believe that we are defensively positioned to withstand the impact of softening market conditions over the next several quarters. And with over 66% of our mortgage portfolio being priced off of prime, our average mortgage rate should continue to increase in future quarters,” said Rob Goodall, CEO of Atrium.
