Management Overview 

Jim Fowler, Chairman of the Board, commented, "During the third quarter, the Company continued to diversify its inves tment portfolio by investing capital in two alternative asset vehicles. These investments include the purchase, as previously announced, of senior notes of the holding company for Bridger Commercial Funding, a commercial mortgage loan originator, as well as a $10 million investment in a limited partnership that acquired a pool of residential mortgage loans that management believes will generate attractive risk-adjusted returns.

Steven R. Mumma, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The Company invested $10 million in a pool of residential mortgages at a significant discount to the loans' unpaid principal balance, which management believes will result in accretive returns to our overall portfolio. The purchase is part of our strategy of pursuing credit based investment opportunities in the residential and commercial mortgage markets. In addition, during the 2010 third quarter, the Company continued to benefit from trading strategies put into place in 2009, such as its investments in collateralized loan obligations and non-Agency RMBS, while it builds out its portfolio for the future."
