“Rithm delivered great performance in the first quarter of 2023,” said Michael Nierenberg, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Rithm Capital. “In contrast to the volatile macro environment and the stress in the regional banking sector, we produced consistent results, generating $0.35 in earnings available for distribution per share and posting book value of $11.67 per share.”

“Over a year into the Fed’s aggressive tightening cycle, we have effectively navigated the market and positioned our Company for success. Our focus on credit and risk management, and our opportunistic approach to capital management has served the Company and its shareholders extremely well. Our expansion into the private capital business and our emphasis on quality performance in our existing portfolio will drive our Company through its next phase of growth. With plenty of uncertainty still to play out in the financial services space, Rithm is well-positioned to continue deploying capital into attractive opportunities. We look forward to seeing Rithm’s success as we move through 2023 and beyond.”
