MMA Capital Holdings Announces Expected Release of Deferred
BALTIMORE, Feb. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MMA Capital Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: MMAC) ("MMA Capital" or the "Company") today announced that it expects to report the release of a portion of the Company's valuation allowance associated with its deferred tax assets that is expected to result in a material increase to net income and common shareholders' equity for the year ended December 31, 2019. Such anticipated release reflects the Company's assessment that, based on all available evidence as of December 31, 2019, it is more likely than not that a portion of the Company's net operating loss carryforwards will be utilized. Evidence evaluated by the Company included, but was not limited to, its three-year cumulative income position, the results and trend of pretax book income from core operations and its forecast of pretax book income.
Michael Falcone, MMA Capital's Chief Executive Officer stated, "As a result of the strategic repositioning of our business over the last two years, especially recent transactions involving the Company's new revolving credit facility and repayment of the Hunt note, we believe that the likelihood that a portion of the Company's deferred tax benefits will be realized has risen to a level where it is appropriate to recognize a net deferred tax asset in the Company's financial statements. Given the expected materiality of this non-cash benefit, and beginning with the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, we expect to disclose supplemental financial metrics that will enable investors to evaluate the Company's performance both with and without recognition of the net deferred tax asset. By doing so, investors will be able to assess the Company's underlying financial performance and trends of its business from period to period without considering the effect of a financial asset whose measurement is calculated and subject to change based on significant judgment."
