Home Capital Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results
Home Capital Group Inc. ("Home Capital" or "the Company") (TSX: HCG) today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company's 2020 Second 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.
"Today we are reporting year-over-year growth in our originations, our earnings and our return on equity," said Yousry Bissada, Chief Executive Officer. "These results are a demonstration of the quality and dedication of the people at Home Capital, as well as the importance of the work we do to help people become homeowners."
Net Income: $0.65 per share in Q2 2020 compared with $0.53 in Q2 2019
Asset Growth: Mortgage originations grew by 17.1% over Q2 2019
Funding: Deposits through our Oaken channel of $3.68 billion make up 26.2% of total deposits
Credit Quality: Credit provisions of 0.43% of gross loans compared with 0.70% in Q1 2020 and 0.15% in Q2 2019
Home Capital believes that the impact of COVID-19 on its operations will depend on the duration of COVID-19 related restrictions on economic activity, the effectiveness of relief programs at mitigating the economic effects on our customers and the resulting impact on the markets for real estate and consumer credit. The allowance for expected credit losses ("ECL") is sensitive to the inputs used in models, including macroeconomic variables in the forward-looking scenarios and their respective probability weightings as at the reporting date, among other factors. The Company's ECL was determined as of June 30, 2020 based on forecasts and other information available at that date, as IFRS 9 does not permit the use of hindsight in measuring ECL. Since that date, forecasts around the impact of COVID-19 on the economy and the timing of recovery have continued to evolve. Any changes in forward-looking information subsequent to June 30, 2020 will be reflected in the measurement of ECL in future quarters as appropriate. This may add significant volatility to ECL.
"As we begin the gradual process of re-opening, we will continue to act in accordance with our sustainable risk culture and in the best interests of all our stakeholders," said Mr. Bissada. "We are confident both in the capacity of our people and in the strength of our financial resources. Home will continue to be there, supporting our customers, however long the re-opening process takes."

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 2020 Second 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 in the 2020 Second 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 novel coronavirus disease (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 2020 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 2020, management made 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 Company's 2019 Annual Report.
The global pandemic related to the outbreak of COVID-19 resulted in significant changes to 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 2020 Second 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 Impact of COVID-19, the Outlook and the Risk Management sections in the 2020 Second Quarter Report for more information.
The Company has adopted IFRS as its accounting framework. IFRS are the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for Canadian publicly accountable enterprises. The Company uses a number of financial measures to assess its performance. Some of these measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, are not defined by GAAP, and do not have standardized meanings that would ensure consistency and comparability between companies using these measures. Definitions of non-GAAP measures can be found under Non-GAAP Measures in the Management's Discussion and Analysis included in the Company's 2020 Second Quarter Report.
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.
