FRONT YARD RESIDENTIAL RELEASES INVESTOR PRESENTATION HIGHLIGHTING BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION, ONGOING OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL IMPROVEMENTS AND BOARD’S COMMITMENT TO STOCKHOLDERS
Execution of Strategic Initiatives Has Resulted in Sustainable and Increasing Revenues
and Operating Cash Flows Since 2016
Urges Stockholders to Vote the WHITE Proxy Card “FOR ALL” of Front Yard’s Director Nominees Who Are Highly Qualified and Committed to Enhancing Long-term Value for Stockholders
CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands - May 3, 2019 - Front Yard Residential Corporation (“Front Yard” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RESI) today released an investor presentation in connection with the Company’s upcoming 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on May 23, 2019. Front Yard urges stockholders to protect their investment by voting the WHITE proxy card “FOR ALL” of its highly-qualified director nominees.
The presentation and other important information related to the annual meeting can be found on Front Yard’s website under the Investors Overview tab, or linked here at: https://ir.frontyardresidential.com/investor-relations.
Highlights from the presentation include:
Front Yard’s journey to build a high-performing portfolio of affordable single-family rental homes targeted to operate at a best-in-class yield and provide stockholders with stable and growing returns and residents with houses they are proud to call home;
Front Yard’s successful execution on its strategic initiatives has enabled it to achieve portfolio scale, internalize property management, enhance efficiencies and deliver strong rental property operating metrics, which have laid the foundation for growing Company-wide FFO and improving GAAP results;
Under current leadership, Front Yard has strengthened its balance sheet, optimized its financing structure and fixed or capped interest rate exposure to support its transformation and acquisition strategy;
Front Yard’s highly-effective Board of Directors has the right combination of experience, institutional knowledge, background and leadership, and is committed to strong corporate governance practices focused on long-term growth; and
Snow Park’s significant conflicts of interest, given its large short position in Front Yard and investment in the Company’s external manager, as well as its lack of understanding of Front Yard’s business and clearly articulated strategy. Moreover, Snow Park’s three nominees lack relevant skills and industry experience and we believe their election would jeopardize the successful completion of Front Yard’s business transformation that is well underway and achieving results.
