Home Capital Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

May 04, 2022

Double-digit loan growth driven by 72% increase in originations

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Home Capital Group Inc. (“Home Capital” or “the Company”) (TSX: HCG) today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2022 First Quarter Report including Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis which are available on Home Capital’s website at www.homecapital.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

“We are starting off with good momentum in growing our mortgage book including record originations in our Classic single-family mortgages,” said Yousry Bissada, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with the rate of our asset growth. The assets we add now will generate income well into the future. Although our net interest margin fell this quarter due to increases in our cost of funds outpacing increases in mortgage rates, we expect to benefit over time from margin increases as spreads normalize.”

  • Net write-offs as a percentage of gross loans were 0.01% in Q1 2022, compared to less than one basis point in Q4 2021 and 0.01% in Q1 2021.
  • Net non-performing loans (represented by Stage 3 loans under IFRS 9) as a percentage of gross loans at 0.11% at the end of Q1 2022, compared with 0.13% at the end of Q4 2021 and 0.38% at the end of Q1 2021.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

From time to time, Home Capital Group Inc. makes written and verbal forward-looking statements. These are included in the Annual Report, periodic reports to shareholders, regulatory filings, press releases, Company presentations and other Company communications. Forward-looking statements are made in connection with business objectives and targets, Company strategies, operations, anticipated financial results and the outlook for the Company, its industry, and the Canadian economy. These statements regarding expected future performance are “financial outlooks” within the meaning of National Instrument 51-102. Please see the risk factors, which are set forth in detail in the Risk Management section of the 2022 First Quarter Report, as well as the Company’s other publicly filed information, which is available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com, for the material factors that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from these statements. These risk factors are material risk factors a reader should consider, and include credit risk, liquidity and funding risk, structural interest rate risk, operational risk, investment risk, strategic risk, reputational risk, compliance risk and capital adequacy risk along with additional risk factors that may affect future results. Forward-looking statements can be found in the Report to the Shareholders and the Outlook section of the 2022 First Quarter Report. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “will,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “estimate,” “plan,” “forecast,” “may,” and “could” or other similar expressions.

By their very nature, these statements require the Company to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainty, general and specific, which may cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and government responses to it, global capital market activity, changes in government monetary and economic policies, changes in interest rates, inflation levels and general economic conditions, legislative and regulatory developments, climate change, competition and technological change. The preceding list is not exhaustive of possible factors.

These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The Company presents forward-looking statements to assist shareholders in understanding the Company’s assumptions and expectations about the future that are relevant in management’s setting of performance goals, strategic priorities and outlook. The Company presents its outlook to assist shareholders in understanding management’s expectations on how the future will impact the financial performance of the Company. These forward-looking statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements, whether written or verbal, that may be made from time to time by it or on its behalf, except as required by securities laws.

Assumptions about the performance of the Canadian economy in 2022 and its effect on Home Capital’s business are material factors the Company considers when setting strategic priorities and outlook. In determining expectations for economic growth, both broadly and in the financial services sector, the Company primarily considers historical and forecasted economic data provided by the Canadian government and its agencies and other third-party providers. In setting and reviewing its strategic priorities and outlook for 2022, management makes certain assumptions about the Canadian economy, employment conditions, interest rates, levels of housing activity, household debt service levels and the Company’s continued access to broker mortgage and deposit markets. These assumptions are discussed in greater detail in the 2022 First Quarter Report.

The global pandemic related to the outbreak of COVID-19 significantly impacts these assumptions. Updated forward-looking macroeconomic assumptions have been incorporated into the models used in the Company’s expected credit loss estimation process. Please see Note 5(C) to the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2022 First Quarter Report for more information on these assumptions. The full extent of the impact that COVID-19, including government and/or regulatory responses to the outbreak, will have on the Canadian economy and the Company’s business remains uncertain and difficult to predict. Please see the Outlook and the Risk Management sections in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis included in the 2022 First Quarter Report for more information.

Regulatory Filings

The Company’s continuous disclosure materials, including interim filings, annual Management’s Discussion and Analysis and audited consolidated financial statements, Annual Information Form, Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders, and Proxy Circular are available on the Company’s website at www.homecapital.com and on the Canadian Securities Administrators’ website at www.sedar.com.
