Non-GAAP Financial Measures Related to Operating Results

In addition to the Company’s operating results presented in accordance with GAAP, the following tables include the following non-GAAP financial measures: Core Earnings (including per common share), total interest income and average asset yield, including TBA dollar roll income, paydown expense on Agency MBS and effective total interest expense and effective cost of funds. The first table below reconciles the Company’s “net loss to common stockholders” for the three months ended December 31, 2018 to “Core Earnings” for the same period. Core Earnings represents “net loss to common stockholders” (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure), adjusted for the items shown in the table below. The second table below reconciles the Company’s total interest and other income for the three months ended December 31, 2018 (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure) to the total interest income and average asset yield, including TBA dollar roll income, and shows the annualized amounts as a percentage of the Company’s average earning assets and also reconciles the Company’s total interest expense (which is the nearest comparable GAAP measure) to the effective total interest expense and effective cost of funds and shows the annualized amounts as a percentage of the Company’s average borrowings.

The Company’s management believes that:

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for the Company’s operating results for the three months ended December 31, 2018. An analysis of any non-GAAP financial measure should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.

____________________
(1)     Impairment charge on Non-Agency MBS represents the amount applied against current GAAP earnings when future loss expectations exceed previously-existing loss expectations. When future loss expectations become less than previously-existing loss expectations, the difference would be amortized into earnings over the life of the security.
(2)

Net settlement on interest rate swaps after de-designation include all subsequent net payments made on interest rate swaps which were de-designated as hedges in August 2014 and are recorded in “Loss on interest rate swaps, net.”

(3)

Dollar roll income on TBA Agency MBS is the income resulting from the price discount typically obtained by extending the settlement of TBA Agency MBS to a later date. This is a component of the “(Loss) gain on derivatives, net” that is included in the Company’s statements of operations.

(4) Paydown expense on Agency MBS represents the proportional expense of Agency MBS purchase premiums relative to the Agency MBS principal payments and prepayments which occurred during the quarter.
(5) Depreciation expense is added back in the core earnings calculation, as it is a non-cash item, and it is similarly added back in other companies’ calculation of core earnings or funds from operations.
