Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2021.

Recent Developments

As previously announced on March 18, 2022, the Company has started operations of its Alternative Lending Group (ALG) with a capital commitment of $40 million.  

As of March 31, 2022, the Company pipeline consists of the following:

Description Amount
Loans acquired $18,470,000
Loans under evaluation 9,258,000
Total 27,728,000

Our Interim Chief Executive Officer, Thomas K. McCarthy, has had his engagement extended to May 31, 2022.

Our new President and Chief Operating Officer, Jason Kopcak, will officially start his new position on or before May 15, 2022.

Subsequent to year end, the Company entered into a settlement agreement regarding its outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and has agreed to pay two institutional investors approximately $665 thousand in cash in exchange for 5,788 Series A Preferred shares ($5.79 million of liquidation preference).

In addition, subsequent to year end, the Company has agreed to a settlement in principle with its former General Counsel effective March 2022.

“We are pleased with our current efforts in launching our new Alternative Lending Group (“ALG”) platform. This past year has been challenging for the Company as we attempted to find the best fit given our resources and where we could leverage the experience of our management team. We believe that both our lending plans through ALG complimented by an opportunity with Crypto-ATMs will provide long-term shareholder value. We still have a lot of work to do in 2022, and we believe that we have the right strategy, management team and capital position to capitalize on these two opportunities,” stated Interim Chief Executive Officer, Thomas K. McCarthy.
