CORE EARNINGS (1) OF $0.62 PER COMMON SHARE
GAAP BOOK VALUE OF $16.92 PER COMMON SHARE
ADDED $783 MILLION OF RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE LOANS
NEW YORK - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE:CIM) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017 . The Company’s third quarter 2017 GAAP net income was $129.8 million or $0.69 per common share. Core earnings (1) for the third quarter of 2017 was $116.3 million or $0.62 per common share. Economic return on book value for the quarter was 5.3%. (2) During the quarter the Company purchased approximately $783 million in loans which brings loan purchases for the year to $5.8 billion. The Company sponsored one mortgage loan securitization for $783 million and incurred $3.4 million in securitization deal related expenses.

"Chimera's seasoned mortgage loan portfolio and securitizations continue to grow" said Matthew Lambiase, Chimera's CEO and President. "We believe that residential mortgage credit offers some of the best risk adjusted returns in the fixed income market and the further development of this portfolio is central to our strategy of generating a steady, attractive stream of dividend income for our shareholders."

(1) Core earnings is a non-GAAP measure. See additional discussion on page 5.
(2) Economic return on book value is based on the change in GAAP book value per common share for the quarter plus the quarterly dividend declared per common share.

Note: All per common share amounts presented on a diluted basis.

Core earnings

Core earnings is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as GAAP net income excluding unrealized gains on the aggregate portfolio, impairment losses, realized gains on sales of investments, realized gains or losses on futures, realized gains or losses on swap terminations, gain on deconsolidation, extinguishment of debt and certain other non-recurring gains or losses. As defined, core earnings include interest income and expense as well as realized losses on interest rate swaps used to hedge interest rate risk. Management believes that the presentation of core earnings is useful to investors because it can provide a useful measure of comparability to our other REIT peers, but has important limitations. We believe core earnings as described above helps evaluate our financial performance without the impact of certain transactions but is of limited usefulness as an analytical tool. Therefore, core earnings should not be viewed in isolation and is not a substitute for net income or net income per basic share computed in accordance with GAAP.

The following table provides GAAP measures of net income and net income per basic share available to common stockholders for the periods presented and details with respect to reconciling the line items to core earnings and related per average basic common share amounts:

Economic Net Interest Income

Our “Economic net interest income” is a non-GAAP financial measure, that equals interest income, less interest expense and realized losses on our interest rate swaps. Realized losses on our interest rate swaps are the periodic net settlement payments made or received.  For the purpose of computing economic net interest income and ratios relating to cost of funds measures throughout this section, interest expense includes net payments on our interest rate swaps, which is presented as a part of Realized gains (losses) on derivatives in our Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income. Interest rate swaps are used to manage the increase in interest paid on repurchase agreements in a rising rate environment. Presenting the net contractual interest payments on interest rate swaps with the interest paid on interest-bearing liabilities reflects our total contractual interest payments. We believe this presentation is useful to investors because it depicts the economic value of our investment strategy by showing actual interest expense and net interest income. Where indicated, interest expense, including interest payments on interest rate swaps, is referred to as economic interest expense. Where indicated, net interest income reflecting interest payments on interest rate swaps, is referred to as economic net interest income.

The following table reconciles the GAAP and non-GAAP measurements reflected in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
