Walker & Dunlop Announces Benefits from Enactment of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

 

Bethesda, Maryland – January 31, 2018 –  Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the “Company”) announced its expectations for the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act legislation, which was signed into law on December 22, 2017. As a result of the decrease in the federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21%, the Company expects:

 

·

A one-time, non-cash benefit of approximately $59 million to net income, or $1.83 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2017 due to the revaluation of its net deferred tax liabilities at the reduced federal corporate tax rate. 

·

An effective corporate tax rate in 2018 that, at this time, the Company estimates will be in the range of 25% to 28%.

 

Chief Financial Officer,  Steve Theobald,  commented, “As a company with no foreign subsidiaries and few opportunities for tax shields, the reduction in the corporate tax rate due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will have an immediate positive impact on our earnings and cash flow going forward.”

 

As previously announced, the Company will report its fourth quarter and full year 2017 results on February 7, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
