Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NYSE:NLY) today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2014.

Financial Performance

GAAP net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 was $658.3 million, or $0.71 loss per average common share, compared to GAAP net income of $354.9 million, or $0.36 per average common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, and GAAP net income of $1.0 billion, or $1.07 per average common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The decrease in net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 compared to the quarters ended September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was primarily attributable to mark-to-market losses on our interest rate swaps. Core earnings for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 was $298.9 million, or $0.30 per average common share, compared to $308.6 million, or $0.31 per average common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, and $350.1 million, or $0.35 per average common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. “Core earnings” represents a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income (loss) excluding gains or losses on disposals of investments and termination of interest rate swaps, unrealized gains or losses on interest rate swaps and Agency interest-only mortgage-backed securities, net gains and losses on trading assets, impairment losses, net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest, and certain other non-recurring gains or losses.

GAAP net loss for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $842.3 million, or $0.96 loss per average common share and GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $3.7 billion, or $3.86 per average common share. Core earnings for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, were $1.1 billion or $1.14 per average common share and $1.2 billion, or $1.21 per average common share.

Net interest margin for the quarters ended December 31, 2014, September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was 1.56%, 1.61% and 1.78%, respectively. Net interest margin represents the Company’s annualized economic net interest income, inclusive of interest expense on interest rate swaps, divided by its average interest-earning assets. For the quarter ended December 31, 2014, the average yield on interest earning assets was 2.98% and the average cost of interest bearing liabilities, including interest expense on interest rate swaps, was 1.69%, which resulted in a net interest spread of 1.29%. Our average yield on interest earning assets was relatively unchanged for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Our average yield on interest earning assets decreased for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013 due to higher amortization expense in the current quarter resulting from faster prepayment speeds. Our average cost of interest bearing liabilities increased for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2014 due to higher interest expense on interest rate swaps. Our average cost of interest bearing liabilities decreased for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013 due to lower interest rate swap and swaption notional balances as a percentage of repurchase agreements.

Wellington J. Denahan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Annaly, commented on the Company’s results. “We fully expect the Federal Reserve to adjust policy accommodation sometime this year and the markets to endure higher levels of volatility. We look forward to the opportunities that will accompany that adjustment and remain comfortable in our continued ability to deliver attractive relative returns.”

Kevin Keyes, President of Annaly, added “In addition to our size, liquidity and industry-low leverage, our diversified Agency and Commercial strategies help to insulate the Company from heightened volatility while providing complimentary and more durable earnings over time.”

Hedge Portfolio

At December 31, 2014, the Company had outstanding interest rate swaps with a net notional amount of $31.5 billion and interest rate swaptions with a net notional amount of $1.8 billion, representing 47% of the Company’s repurchase agreements. Interest rate swaps and swaptions represented 48% of the Company’s repurchase agreements at September 30, 2014 and 92% of the Company’s repurchase agreements at December 31, 2013. Changes in the unrealized gains or losses on the interest rate swaps are reflected in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss). The purpose of the interest rate swaps is to mitigate the risk of rising interest rates that affect the Company’s cost of funds. Since the Company pays a fixed rate and receives a floating rate on the notional amount of the swaps, the intended effect of the swaps is to lock in a cost of financing. As of December 31, 2014, the swap portfolio, excluding forward starting swaps, had a weighted average pay rate of 2.49%, a weighted average receive rate of 0.22% and weighted average maturity of 8.38 years.

At December 31, 2014, the Company had outstanding interest rate swaptions with a net notional amount of $1.8 billion. Changes in the unrealized gains or losses on the interest rate swaptions are reflected in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss). The interest rate swaptions provide the Company with the option to enter into an interest rate swap agreement for a specified notional amount, duration, and pay and receive rates. As of December 31, 2014, the long swaption portfolio had a weighted average pay rate of 2.88% and weighted average expiration of 3.59 months. As of December 31, 2014, there were no short swaption positions.
