VERO BEACH, Florida, Feb. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc. (NYSE: ARR, ARR PrA, and ARR PrB) (“ARMOUR” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2016.
Q4 2016 Highlights and Financial Information Q4 2016 key results: $94.1 million ($2.46 per Common share) net income under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”)$30.0 million ($0.71 per Common share) Core Income including “drop income” (as defined below), which represents an annualized return of 9.8% based on stockholders’ equity at the beginning of the quarter$0.66 per share Common dividends for Q4 at the rate of $0.22 per month2.72% average yield on assets and 1.40% average net interest margin11.15% annualized average principal repayment rate (“CPR”)36,745,000 (approximately) weighted average diluted Common shares outstanding

Book value at January 31, 2017, was estimated to be $24.59 per Common shareAdditional updated information on the Company’s investment, financing and hedge positions can be found in ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc.’s most recent “Company Update.” ARMOUR posts unaudited and unreviewed Company Updates on www.armourreit.com.  GAAP Net Income
For the purposes of computing GAAP net income (loss), the change in fair value of the Company’s derivatives is reflected in current period net income, while the change in fair value of its Agency Securities is reflected in its statement of comprehensive income (loss). GAAP net income for Q4 2016 was approximately $94.1 million, including mark-to-market gains on derivatives and Non-Agency Securities of $203.3 million and $5 million, respectively, and $(113.6) million of realized losses on derivatives. Core Income, Including Drop Income
Core Income, including drop income, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, was approximately $30.0 million, exceeding total dividends paid in the quarter. “Core Income” represents a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income excluding impairment losses, gains or losses on sales of securities and early termination of derivatives, unrealized gains or losses on derivatives and certain non-recurring expenses, plus drop income (as defined below). Core Income may differ from GAAP net income, which includes the unrealized gains or losses of the Company’s derivative instruments and the gains or losses on Agency, Non-Agency and Interest-only Securities. The Company may enter into to-be-announced (“TBA”) dollar roll transactions that generate “drop income.” Drop income is defined as the difference in price between two TBA contracts with the same terms but different settlement dates. Drop income is the economic equivalent of the assumed net interest spread (yield less financing costs) and is calculated as the difference between the spot price for regular settlement and the forward settlement price on the trade date. Dividends
The Company paid dividends of $0.22 per Common share of record for each month in Q4 2016. Payments to Common stockholders for Q4 2016 were approximately $24.3 million. The Company also paid monthly dividends of $0.171875 per outstanding share of 8.250% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and $0.1640625 per outstanding share of 7.875% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, resulting in aggregate payments to preferred stockholders of approximately $3.9 million in Q4 2016.  Common dividends in the amount of $0.19 per Common share were paid on January 30, 2017, to holders of record on January 17, 2017. Common dividends in the amount of $0.19 per Common share have been declared for holders of record on February 15, 2017 (payable February 27, 2017). The board of directors determines the Common share dividend rate based upon the REIT requirements and other relevant considerations. Dividends in excess of taxable REIT income for the year (including any amounts carried forward from prior years) will generally be treated as non-taxable return of capital to Common stockholders. Per Share Amounts
Per Common share amounts are net of applicable Preferred Stock dividends and liquidation preferences. The denominators used to calculate per Common share amounts for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, reflect, to the extent dilutive, the effects of 0.03 million unvested stock awards. Portfolio
As of December 31, 2016, the Company’s Agency Securities portfolio consisted of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae mortgage securities, substantially all of which are fixed rate securities, and was valued at $6.5 billion on a trade date basis. The Company’s Non-Agency Securities portfolio was valued at $1.1 billion and the Company’s Interest-Only Securities portfolio was valued at $33.6 million at quarter end. During Q4 2016, the annualized yield on average assets was 2.72%, and the annualized cost of funds on average liabilities (including realized cost of hedges) was 1.32%, resulting in a net interest spread of 1.40% for Q4 2016. Portfolio Financing, Leverage and Interest Rate Hedges
As of December 31, 2016, the Company financed its mortgage backed securities portfolio with approximately $6.8 billion of borrowings under repurchase agreements. The Company’s leverage ratio as of December 31, 2016, was 6.24 to 1 (8.92 to 1, including TBA Agency Securities purchased forward and excluding debt related to forward settling sales). As of December 31, 2016, the Company’s liquidity totaled approximately $517.8 million, consisting of approximately $271.8 million of cash and equivalents, plus approximately $246.0 million of unpledged securities (including securities received as collateral). As of December 31, 2016, the Company’s repurchase agreements had a weighted-average maturity of approximately 22 days, an average rate of 1.07% and a haircut of 7.45%. The Company had a notional amount of various maturities of interest rate swap contracts of approximately $4.2 billion with a weighted average swap rate of 1.79%. Regulation G Reconciliation
Core Income excludes impairment losses, gains or losses on sales of securities and early termination of derivatives, unrealized gains or losses on derivatives and certain non-recurring expenses, plus drop income. The Company believes that Core Income is useful to investors because it is related to the amount of dividends the Company may distribute. However, because Core Income is an incomplete measure of the Company’s financial performance and involves differences from net income computed in accordance with GAAP, Core Income should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s financial performance. The following tables reconcile the Company’s results from operations to Core Income and Core Income per Common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 (dollar amounts in millions, except per share amounts):   Core Income  (in millions)GAAP net income $94.1 Book to tax differences:  Non-Agency Securities (6.1)Interest-only Securities (9.5)Other than temporary impairment of Agency Securities 6.5 Changes in interest rate contracts (103.3)Loss on sale of Securities 37.1 TBA drop income 11.2 Core Income $30.0
