Imperial Holdings, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

Imperial Holdings, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Imperial Holdings, Inc. (NYS: IFT) ("Imperial" or the "Company"), a specialty finance company with a focus on providing liquidity solutions to owners of illiquid financial assets, announced today its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Three Months Ended June 30, 2013


Total income was $69.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, a $53.0 million increase over the same period in 2012. The increase was driven by the addition of 422 life insurance policies to the Company's life settlements portfolio and a corresponding increase in the fair value of the Company's investments in life settlements. Total expenses were $21.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $16.8 million during the same three month period in 2012. Expenses in the period were driven by charges associated with the establishment of the Company's long-term credit facility of $10.3 million, or $0.48 per share, that could not be capitalized over the life of the facility.

The Company reported net income of $47.7 million, or $2.25 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $625,000, or ($.03) per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2013

Total income was $75.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, a $49.4 million increase over the same period in 2012. Total expenses were $32.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to total expenses of $35.7 million incurred during the same period in 2012.

The Company reported net income of $43.4 million, or $2.04 per fully diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $9.5 million, or ($.45) per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

Life Finance Segment- Second Quarter

In our life finance segment, total income was $65.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, a $53.3 million increase over the same period in 2012. The Company recorded an increase in the fair value of its life settlements portfolio of $64.8 million. The increase was primarily attributable to the addition of 422 life insurance policies, the majority of which were either acquired through the purchase of CTL Holdings, LLC or previously classified as off balance sheet contingent assets. Segment expenses were $13.4 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $5.2 million for the same period in 2012. As discussed above, segment expense increases were driven by closing costs associated with the Company's long-term credit facility and repayment of its bridge loan.

At June 30, 2013 the estimated fair value of the Company's life insurance policies was $265.8 million compared to $113.4 million at December 31, 2012. The weighted average discount rate used in the Company's fair value model was 20.61% at June 30, 2013 compared to 24.01% at December 31, 2012. The aggregate face value of the Company's portfolio of life insurance policies was approximately $3.0 billion at June 30, 2013.

Structured Settlements Segment- Second Quarter

In our structured settlements segment, total income was $3.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2012, a decrease of $500,000. During the three months ended June 30, 2013, 150 structured settlements were sold that resulted in a gain of $3.1 million compared to 265 structured settlements that were sold for a gain of $3.1 million during the same period in 2012. Structured settlement segment expenses were $4.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $5.5 million for the same period in 2012. The decrease in expenses was mostly attributable to lower personnel and marketing costs. Segment operating loss was $480,000 for the second quarter of 2013 compared to a segment operating loss of $1.6 million for the same period in 2012.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $23.6 million of cash and cash equivalents and its book value was $8.06 per share.

Antony Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am pleased to report our first quarter reflecting our now significantly larger life settlements portfolio. We recognized a meaningful increase in book value and will look to pursue additional investment opportunities in order to increase shareholder value."
