NYSE: SACH Market Overview: Favorable Home Prices ▪ Sachem’s historical primary market (Connecticut) has benefitted from several trends accelerated by the COVID - 19 pandemic: • Movement out of dense urban locations, including New York City, to suburban neighborhoods • Increased demand for larger, more spacious housing as workers adjust to a greater proportion of remote work • Lower interest rates, improving mortgage affordability for home purchasers O NE Y EAR H OME P RICE I NDEX 9 Source: Zillow 20.9% 16.3% 0.0% 5.0% 10.0% 15.0% 20.0% 25.0% May-20 Jun-20 Jul-20 Aug-20 Sep-20 Oct-20 Nov-20 Dec-20 Jan-21 Feb-21 Mar-21 Apr-21 May-21 Jun-21 Connecticut United States



NYSE: SACH Target Market and Opportunity 10 • It can take the SBA 6+ months to close on a large loan • Competitors have tightened their lending criteria • Demand for property has outstripped supply Developers, builders, and investors are facing tightening restrictions in the capital markets • Sachem can close a loan in as quickly as 5 days, whereas our competitors can take 3 - 6 + months • Due diligence is more centered around the value of the collateral rather than the property cash flows or borrower’s credit • Combination of speed and flexibility enables us to adapt to new market conditions More flexibility in structuring loans than competitors to better meet the needs of the borrower • Offsets rate compression and helps us maintain a low foreclosure rate • Collateral less susceptible to value swings in the residential market • Term is generally limited to 1 year to mitigate interest rate risk Sachem’s latest initiative is to focus on larger sized loans with financially stable, experienced developers

Sachem Capital Corp. Investor Presentation


– October 2021 NYSE: SACH Q & A



Sachem Power Point Script


Slide 2 – Safe Harbor


Please take a moment to review the forward-looking statement included in our presentation. You should fully understand the risks of reliance on these statements and should evaluate all statements contained herein completely. Finally, any statement, conclusion or assumption made by Sachem is not a predication of future events.


Slide 3 – Management Team


As you review this slide, let me give you some background on our Company and the commitment of management.


Sachem was formed in December of 2010, as a partnership specifically to address the lack of liquidity in the banking sector, the inability of banks to understand small balance commercial real estate loans and finally their ability to execute in a timely manner. Our immediate goal was to locate sources of capital and more importantly develop a dependable business model that not only generates sustainable profits but remains stout and robust in difficult times. During the period from December 2010 to the date of our IPO in 2017, Sachem sourced 175 partners, raised $28MM in equity capital and obtained a $15MM credit facility. This was a time of rapid loan growth, system and control implementation and of course, fantastic profits. During this period Sachem earned the reputation as the go-to lender in the CT hard money lending space.


The management of Sachem is committed to the success of the company. This commitment can be seen by our large and continued investment in the Company, our initial transition from external to internal management and finally our focus on bottom line results.


As an investor in Sachem, you should look at your investment in us as we look at an investment in our borrower clientele. Does management have enough skin in the game to make the right decisions, to push past difficult times and truly take an interest in the direction of the Company?





Slide 4 – Company Overview


In general, Sachem is a vertically integrated mortgage REIT. We originate, underwrite, fund, service and manage all our first lien mortgages. Our loans are often called hard money loans because they are specifically collateralized by hard real estate assets. We are rarely a seller of our mortgage notes.


Since our inception and through December 2020, Sachem has made approximately 1500 mortgage loans with an approximate principal balance of $381MM. Our historical loss % on these loans is approximately ½ of 1%.


I would like to touch on a few points: First, Sachem is internally managed, with a full-service business model that is highly scalable, second, we are a disciplined underwriter based on conservative property valuations, third, we maintain a conservative approach to portfolio diversification and finally our ability to now access the capital markets for low-cost debt capital fueling loan and revenue growth.



Slide 5 – Investment Highlights


We realize there are many investment choices to invest your hard-earned dollars. In terms of risk v. reward, we think Sachem stacks up pretty well.


Here are some factors for you to consider as you contemplate an investment in Sachem:





1.Management owns greater than 7% of the company and are not sellers of the stock. We are working owners with a focus on bottom line performance.
2.Our loans are high yield assets not directly tied to interest rate fluctuations.
3.Our leverage is low compared to our peers.
4.The management team can protect invested assets and provide stability of growth and profits.
5.Sachem is the benefactor of an aging housing stock resulting in an unrelenting demand for our loan products. Our loan backlog is approximately $60MM.
6.We have a history of significant profits and a track record of managing troubled assets with minimal losses.
7.Our business model is robust, scalable and highly profitable as evidenced by our recent filings.


Slide 6 – Sachem Loan Products


As a non-bank finance company, Sachem is an obvious choice for developers as they look to finance their current opportunity. We have found that ease of finance carries significant weight to the developer finance equation. Why then is Sachem part of the developer value equation?


1.Sachem will lend on most all property types;
2.Sachem will allow additional real estate collateral as well as borrower earnest money deposits. Further, a credit blemish will not deter financing;
3.Time from application to close is short compared to banks;
4.Sachem is bridge financing, so a higher cost of interest and fees is not significant in the overall project economics;
5.Construction draw financing is quick compared to banks; and
6.Sachem can and will extend a note to accommodate a borrower if delays have occurred.





Slide 7 – Strong Economic Backdrop Supporting our Market


As housing ages in the U.S., Sachem is positioned to be a significant player in the growth of the non-bank lending space. Speed of execution coupled with our stellar reputation gives us a first look at most opportunities. The growth of our loan portfolio is only limited by available efficient capital and access to opportunities.


Further, long term trends in existing housing and single-family housing starts show long periods of under capacity and a shortfall of new housing.


Some important points from this slide:


1.Lack of housing, COVID and a limited number of new housing starts have created shortages giving rise to higher prices thus protecting invested loan principal.
2.The age of the housing stock in the U.S. will give rise to renovation opportunities and subsequent “fix and flip” business.


Slide 8 – Market Overview- Sustainable Fix and Flip Activity


If investors and developers can earn reasonable returns on invested capital the fix and flip business will remain strong and quite robust.


Shortages in housing inventory have given rise to rising prices of home resales as developers search for qualifying property to renovate. Quality renovation property is scarce due to moratoriums on foreclosures as well as evictions. Government mandates have slowed the overall pace of foreclosures limiting the supply of distressed fix and flip property. At this point the courts are jammed with cases creating a backlog with significant time delays to unlock capital.





Slide 9 – Market Overview- Favorable Home Prices


Connecticut, our primary market, has enjoyed significant real estate benefits due to the COVID pandemic. First and foremost, rising real estate prices exist throughout New England as people leave densely populated urban areas for more living space, better schools, remote work, and an overall better quality of life. Lower interest rates have made homes more affordable and thus helped push real estate prices higher.


Slide 10 – Target Market and Opportunity


Many of our borrowers will not fit the local bank’s “lending box”. As a result, most of these A-,or B+ loan opportunities find their way to non-bank lenders like Sachem. Our borrowers require quick closings and for this service most often negotiate lower purchase prices on the real estate they are buying. They also look for flexibility in credit determination, loan structuring, and construction funding. Most banks are unable to accommodate these borrowers due to regulatory restrictions. Quite simply, the Banks are fighting a battle with the 600lb gorilla on their back and cannot effectively compete with non-bank finance.


Sachem is now looking for larger loans with more financially stable and seasoned developers. While these loans are often priced more attractively for the borrower, our loan funds are invested for longer periods and often with pre-payment fees and success fees upon completion. The rapid payoff of mortgage notes prior to maturity often occurs in the smaller loans, thus reducing returns while the funds remain idle as new opportunities are located.


Slide 11 – The Sachem Advantage


Our business model is based on just a few key factors:


1.Disciplined underwriting, and unwavering due diligence;
2.Extensive collateral analysis;
3.Flexibility to structure loans;
4.Timely execution and delivery and finally; and
5.Management of the borrower.





We insist on steady and sensible growth in our loan portfolio. As stated previously, we prefer to hold our notes and most often refuse to sell our paper to others. We are comfortable with our notes, their yield and expectation of repayment.


Bottom line results are almost automatic with a properly underwritten loan package.


Slide 12 – Loan Process


As a non-bank real estate finance company, we move quickly and decisively when a funding opportunity presents itself. We are not limited by real estate classification, age, or location when we evaluate a loan opportunity. Our focus is on value and ultimately the borrower’s investment and commitment to the deal. We diversify our portfolio to obtain the best value prospects for our invested dollars.


We do not lend-to-own like some of our competitors. We understand every deal is different and on occasion some extra effort is needed to get the desired result. We will and can assist our borrowers when necessary to work a deal into the clear.


At Sachem, we nurture our borrowers and look for them to be successful as we build our relationship. Their success will lead to our sustained growth and bottom-line net income.


Important take ways from this slide:


1.Ongoing underwriting diligence with appraisals, site visits and background checks;
2.Ability to conclude diligence quickly and fund timely; and
3.Ongoing borrower interaction through servicing personnel and asset management such as ongoing property inspections.





Slide 13 – Origination Locations


Sachem has been predominantly a CT based lender with as much as 90% of our loan originations sourced within 70 miles of our office. Since the end of 2019, the Company has diversified our loan portfolio to include operations in Florida, Texas and nine other states. Our moves beyond the CT border are opportunistic in nature as we search for low risk, high yield opportunities with attractive valuations. We are continually searching for lending partners and originators to assist in providing us deal flow and boots on the ground service. We expect our expansion to continue throughout 2021 and into 2022.


Slide 14 – Loan Portfolio Summary Terms


This slide reflects factual information on our loan products for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Let me clarify a few items.


We have two loan products, a one-year and three-year loan. Origination fees range from 2.0% to 5.0% of the loan principal with credits for prompt payoff. Both loans are interest-only with principal payable at maturity. Approximately 90% of our loans have a note rate more than 12% and approximately 85% of our notes are one-year paper. In a default situation, the interest rate on the note will go to 18% and remain until the default is cured by the borrower.





In recent quarters our gross loan origination income has increased significantly due to our transition to larger loan sizes and increased lending volume. Our maximum loan to value is 70%. No borrower has commitments to Sachem for more than 10% of the portfolio.


Finally, the Company is offering interest rates as low as 6.9% plus origination fees to well qualified and collateralized borrowers with projects that fit specific guidelines for inclusion in our Churchill Credit Facility.


Slide 15 – Loan Portfolio Overview


Our portfolio is designed so no single loan or borrower will cripple our ability to pay dividends to our shareholders. Historically, the residential fix-and-flip portion of our portfolio has averaged between 65% and 70% of total loan balances and is now 60.7% reflecting our transition away from resi- fix and flip to better loan-to-value propositions for our capital.


52% of our loans are $500,000 or more reflecting our move to larger loans and better sponsors.


For clarification, when we mention residential mortgages, we are talking about 1-4 family buildings held for investment or rental. We are not a residential lender to homeowners for their residence and thus are not subject to the lending requirements imposed on Banks.


Consistent loan growth and minimal loss reserves confirms our lending process.





Slide 16 – Summary Financial Performance


As you look at our operating performance since our IPO in February 2017, please take note of the following occurrences within the 18 quarter period, first, in June 2019, the repayment of our Webster Bank line of credit prior to maturity incurring approximately $800,000 in one time costs to terminate the facility, second, in November 2019, the beginning of the restructuring of our balance sheet moving to unsecured bonds to finance our loan growth and finally, the occurrence of the COVID pandemic beginning in February 2020. During this 18-quarter period our average quarterly earnings per share was approximately 10 cents and total assets have grown approximately 5 times to approximately $300 million as of June 30, 2021. Further, we have invested heavily in personnel, technology and workspace during this period. These re-investments in our Company reduce earnings per share (EPS) but reinforce the long trend in earnings and dividends.


Slide 17 – Attractive Returns at Modest Leverage


Prior to our IPO, Sachem grew its balance sheet based on capital contributions from new and existing partners. Simply, this is a crawl before you run strategy, ultra conservative and low overhead. It is also a most difficult way to grow a business. While our current business model has changed somewhat over the years there are important threads we need to review here:


First, virtually all our assets are unencumbered. While our unsecured bonds are more costly than bank finance, the bonds allow us to take advantage of lending opportunities should they arise, contain only one covenant, be repaid without penalty, and allow for additional financing in a timely manner.


Second, our average loan principal has grown significantly during the past two years as we move to better sponsors and collateral.





Third, we are seeking lending partners that have a business mindset similar to ours. This is an attempt to diversify our asset concentration, search for better lending opportunities and get boots on the ground coverage and finally, we are not big on overleveraging our portfolio.


As with all our competitors, Sachem benefits greatly from debt and the use of leverage. Industry wide the use of leverage will boost revenue and ultimately EPS making management look like superstars. Overleverage is like playing with a sharp knife. A slight misstep and pain sets in.


The key is balance. During June of 2021, Sachem raised approximately $45M of preferred stock to bolster our balance sheet, and as you all know we utilize our at-the-market offering to raise equity capital with sales above our book value. This is not a money grab, but an ongoing plan to manage our assets and our downside risk. As you are aware, our financing plan worked perfectly during COVID, as the world instantly looked for capital, we took advantage of lending opportunities. Having the right mix of capital lets our executives sleep well at night and as our investors you should too.


Slide 18 – Sachem Growth Strategy


Our strategy is to upsize our historical lending model from small balance residential fix and flip to larger multifamily, high-quality fix and flip and commercial loans where quality of sponsor and project protect our invested capital.


Slide 19 – Successful Initiatives


As you review this slide there are important takeaways to note.





1.Loan origination volume is expanding as well as origination fees. Remember our review of slide 16 where fee income is an ever-increasing part of our gross revenues.
2.Loan length is decreasing reflecting a robust real estate market and proper underwriting.


One important topic not contained in this slide is the complete restructuring of our balance sheet as we moved from all our assets being secured to unsecured lending with significant equity to weather any market downturn. Our focus is protecting our assets and providing safe reasonable returns.


Slide 20 – Loan Portfolio Performance


At Sachem, we like to lend often and early in the process. Lending early minimizes risk and allows for attractive loan pricing. Lending early also provides room for the refinance lender to return our capital. Significant refinance activity provides multiples of fees like legal, processing, inspection, appraisal and background.


Please take note of the following metrics:


1.Our weighted average interest rate holds up nicely as other lenders fight rate compression.
2.Our average outstanding loan balance is up 84% from 2018.
3.Our average loan term has decreased from 11 to 8 months reducing interest rate risk.
4.Our growth in total assets has increased approximately 244% and lastly
5.Foreclosures, despite COVID, are in check.
6.Consistent loan growth and minimal loss reserves confirms our lending process.





Slide 21 – Balance Sheet Summary


All information contained in this slide is readily available on the SEC website.


As we continue to improve our balance sheet notice the reduction in our debt-to-equity ratio and the increase in our asset coverage. We will continue to bombproof our balance sheet as this real estate market ages.


Slide 22 – Income Statement Summary


All information contained in this slide is also readily available on the SEC website.


As you all know we have accessed our ATM during 2020 raising significant amounts of capital with sales of stock well in excess of book value. During the first half of 2021 we sold approximately 4.5M shares realizing net proceeds, before offering costs, of approximately $27.6M As we grow our shares outstanding, we have maintained our EPS while strengthening our balance sheet.
