“We are very pleased to report record operating earnings for both the fourth quarter and the full year, posting operating EPS of $0.42 and $0.63, respectively,” said Joe Jolson, chairman and CEO of JMP Group. “While all of our business units made positive contributions, JMP Securities earned $0.68 per share on an operating basis, driven by record advisory revenues as well as strong capital markets revenues. We also took affirmative steps toward our stated objectives of monetizing corporate investments and retiring long-term debt. At year end, Harvest Capital Credit Corporation announced its pending sale to Portman Ridge Finance Corporation; and, earlier this month, we redeemed $10 million of our 7.25% senior notes due in 2027. We expect both of these transactions to be accretive to operating EPS. Most importantly, our impressive momentum has continued into 2021, and we are optimistic that a stabilizing U.S. economy could serve as a positive backdrop as the year progresses.”

“We had a terrific year, and we are enthusiastic about our prospects for 2021,“ said Mark Lehmann, CEO of JMP Securities. “At JMP Securities, revenues climbed to a new high, totaling $118.5 million for 2020. Our investment banking revenues were well diversified, with 60% from public equity and debt capital raising and 40% from strategic advisory and private placements. Our M&A business is maturing as we had envisioned when we committed to building out our capabilities several years ago, with senior hires proving productive on our platform and contributing to record annual advisory fees of $40.5 million. From an equity capital markets standpoint, we have a stronger backlog in the technology sector than ever before. At the same time, our life sciences franchise was our biggest contributor to revenues last year, and we hope to build on our momentum in that area in 2021.”

Brokerage

Net brokerage revenues for the quarter were $4.9 million, an increase of 10.1% from $4.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, net brokerage revenues were $18.9 million, an increase of 7.4% from $17.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Total capital markets revenues, which consist of net brokerage revenues produced by the institutional equities division in addition to equity and debt origination revenues generated by the investment banking division, were $25.6 million and $78.9 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to $19.0 million and $59.9 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively.

Asset Management

Asset management fees for the quarter were $2.0 million, an increase of 13.7% from $1.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, asset management fees were $8.3 million, an increase of 12.0% from $7.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.

A summary of the company’s client assets under management for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, and for comparable prior periods, is set forth below.

Principal Transactions

Principal transactions generated a net realized and unrealized gain of $1.8 million for the quarter, compared to a net realized and unrealized loss of $5.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, principal transactions generated a net realized and unrealized loss of $18.5 million, compared to a net realized and unrealized gain of $1.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The year-over-year difference is largely due to the impairment of CLO equity owned by JMP Group. A reduction in the net present value of forecasted cash flows through the end of the expected life of the collateralized loan obligations required impairment charges in the amount of $4.4 million and $21.7 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter was $0.5 million, a decrease of 12.0% from $0.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, net interest income was $1.7 million, a decrease of 68.6% from $5.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The year-over-year difference is primarily due to a change in the recognition of income from investments in collateralized loan obligations following the sale of a majority interest in JMP Credit Advisors to Medalist Partners in March 2019.


Expenses

Compensation and Benefits

Compensation and benefits expense for the quarter was $33.0 million, compared to $22.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. As a percentage of net revenues, compensation and benefits expense was 61.6%, compared to 95.0% for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, compensation and benefits expense was $95.1 million, compared to $77.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. As a percentage of net revenues, compensation and benefits expense was 82.4%, compared to 77.3% for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The year-over-year increases in compensation expense and compensation ratios are inclusive of a severance cost of $2.1 million related to management restructuring that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Non-Compensation Expense

Non-compensation expense was $7.6 million and $28.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to $8.5 million and $36.2 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively.

Share Repurchase Activity

JMP Group did not repurchase any outstanding common shares during the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Personnel

At December 31, 2020, the company had 180 full-time employees, compared to 183 at September 30, 2020, and 209 at December 31, 2019.


Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the GAAP financial results presented in this press release, JMP Group presents the non-GAAP financial measures discussed below. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the company’s current financial performance. Furthermore, company management believes that this presentation enables a more meaningful comparison of JMP Group’s financial performance across various periods. However, the non-GAAP financial results presented should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in a manner consistent with GAAP. A limitation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is that the adjustments concern gains, losses or expenses that JMP Group generally expects to continue to recognize. The adjustment of these non-GAAP items should not be construed as an inference that these gains or expenses are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Therefore, both GAAP measures of JMP Group’s financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Operating Net Income

Operating net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that (i) excludes compensation expense related to share-based awards and deferred compensation, (ii) reverses impairment charges related to CLO equity, (iii) reverses a restructuring charge, (iv) excludes the impact of the early retirement of debt issued by JMP Group and a collateralized loan obligation, or “CLO,” (v) excludes transaction costs related to a CLO, (vi) excludes amortization expense related to a CLO, (vii) reverses unrealized gains or losses related to real estate investment properties, (vi) reverses net unrealized gains and losses on strategic equity investments and warrants, and (vii) assumes an effective tax rate. In particular, operating net income adjusts for:

  • the grant of restricted stock units and options;
  • net deferred compensation, which consists of (a) deferred compensation awarded in a given period but recognized as a GAAP expense over the subsequent three years, less (b) GAAP expense recognized in a given period but already reflected in the operating income of a prior period; the purpose of this adjustment is to fully reflect compensation awarded in a given year, notwithstanding the timing of GAAP expense;
  • the impairment of CLO equity recorded among principal transactions, as the company believes that the forecasted reduction in future cash flows will be mitigated by a change in the interest rate environment and that distributions will be larger than currently projected;
  • a charge recorded in connection with severance costs deriving from a management restructuring and reduction in headcount;
  • expenses associated with the redemption of senior notes due 2023 in the third quarter of 2019 and the resulting acceleration of the amortization of remaining capitalized issuance costs;
  • transaction costs related to the refinancing of notes issued by JMP Credit Advisors CLO III;
  • amortization expense related to an intangible asset resulting from the repurchase of a portion of the management fees from JMP Credit Advisors CLO III;
  • unrealized gains or losses on commercial real estate investments, adjusted for non-cash expenditures, including depreciation and amortization;
  • unrealized mark-to-market gains or losses on the company’s strategic equity investments as well as certain warrant positions; and
  • a combined federal, state and local income tax rate of 26% at the consolidated taxable parent company, JMP Group.

A reconciliation of JMP Group’s net income to its operating net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, and for comparable prior periods is set forth below.

On a GAAP basis, the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the quarters ended September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, was 19,628,340 and 19,401,844, respectively. On a GAAP basis, the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the years ended December 31, 2020, and December 31, 2019, was 19,613,057 and 20,188,887, respectively. All such share counts were equivalent to the weighted average number of basic shares outstanding, due to the company’s net loss for the periods. Under GAAP, in a period of net loss, dilutive securities are disregarded in the calculation of earnings per share.


Book Value per Share

At December 31, 2020, JMP Group’s book value per share was $3.18. Adding back accumulated depreciation and amortization expense related to commercial real estate investments that is recognized by JMP Group as a result of equity method accounting reflects the reversal of that expense in the calculation of operating net income. The add-back includes a tax provision related to the expense reversed in a given period, due to the company’s election to be taxed as a C corporation as of January 1, 2019. As a result, adjusted book value per share was $4.03 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, as set forth below.

Cautionary Note Regarding Quarterly Financial Results

Due to the nature of its business, JMP Group’s quarterly revenues and net income may fluctuate materially depending on many factors, including: the size and number of investment banking transactions on which it advises; the timing of the completion of those transactions; the size and number of securities trades which it executes for brokerage customers; the performance of its asset management funds and inflows and outflows of assets under management; gains or losses stemming from sales of or prepayments on, or losses stemming from defaults on, loans underlying the company’s collateralized loan obligations; and the effect of the overall condition of the securities markets and economy as a whole. Accordingly, revenues and net income in any particular quarter may not be indicative of future results. Furthermore, JMP Group’s compensation expense is generally based upon revenues and can fluctuate materially in any quarter, depending upon the amount and sorts of revenue recognized as well as other factors. The amount of compensation and benefits expense recognized in a particular quarter may not be indicative of such expense in any future period. As a result, the company suggests that its annual results may be the most meaningful gauge for investors in evaluating the performance of its business.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, but not limited to, the anticipated effects of COVID-19 on the company’s business, results of operations and financial condition, and the potential timelines for reopening the economy and its improvement. Forward-looking statements reflect JMP Group’s current expectations or forecasts about future events, including beliefs, plans, objectives, intentions, assumptions and other statements that are not historical facts. The words “may,” “could,” “should,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “predict” and similar expressions and their variants, as they relate to JMP Group, may identify forward-looking statements.
