Deerfield Capital Corp. Announces Exchange Of Remaining $25 Million Of Trust Preferred Securities

CHICAGO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Deerfield Capital Corp. (Nasdaq: DFR) ("DFR" or the "Company") today announced that, effective October 20, 2010, it exchanged the remaining $25 million of its original $120 million tranche of trust preferred securities for $25 million of junior subordinated notes due 2035 (the "New Notes").  The terms of and covenants governing the New Notes are substantially similar to those applicable to the junior subordinated notes issued by DFR on March 4, 2010 in exchange for the other $95 million of its trust preferred securities.  The previously issued junior subordinated notes contained an interest rate accommodation, while the New Notes retain the original annual interest rate applicable to the trust preferred securities of LIBOR plus 3.50 percent.  The covenants governing the New Notes are substantially less restrictive than those applicable to the exchanged trust preferred securities.  

Commenting on the exchange, DFR's chief executive officer, Jonathan Trutter said, "Exchanging the last of our trust preferred securities for new junior subordinated notes with less restrictive covenants greatly enhances our financial flexibility going forward.  This exchange completes a series of transactions during 2010 designed to strengthen our balance sheet."
