CreXus Investment Corp. Reports Results For The 4th Quarter And Year Ended 2011

On a GAAP basis the Company provided a return on average equity of 18.12%, 6.60%, and 17.61%, for the quarters ended December 31, 2011, December 31, 2010, and September 30, 2011, respectively. On a GAAP basis, the Company provided a return on average equity of 12.03% and 4.53% for the years ended December 31, 2011, and 2010, respectively.

Kevin Riordan, Chief Executive Officer and President of CreXus, commented on the quarter’s results. “The fourth quarter of 2011 continued to demonstrate the breadth of our origination platform. During the quarter we made several new investments, continued to transform low yielding financings into accretive long-term investments, consummated new originations, and expanded our pipeline of opportunities. We closed over $143 million in new investments during the quarter, with several notable transactions: CreXus acquired its first two net lease facilities, two warehouse/distribution centers located in Phoenix, Arizona, for $33 million. We also funded a $29 million senior and mezzanine loan secured by two retail facilities in Indiana, a $20 million mezzanine loan secured by a portfolio of office buildings in Southern California, and a $12 million first mortgage secured by a condominium development in New Jersey.”

Mr. Riordan continued: “A significant wall of commercial real estate debt is slated to mature over the next several years, and institutions here and in Europe are looking to de-lever their balance sheets to adapt to new risk thresholds and capital ratios. Moreover, volatility in the capital markets continues to present attractive, risk-adjusted debt and equity investments. In this environment, I believe CreXus is well-positioned to take advantage of these opportunities.”

With the expansion of our portfolio to incorporate investment properties, we have adopted segment accounting to differentiate the returns between debt and equity investments. The following table summarizes segmented investment portfolio information for the Company:
