Ellington Financial LLC Reports Estimated Book Value Per Share As Of July 31, 2012





OLD GREENWICH, Conn., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ellington Financial LLC (NYSE: EFC) ("Ellington Financial" or the "Company") today announced that its estimated book value per common share as of July 31, 2012, was $24.58, or $24.01 on a diluted basis. These estimates are subject to change upon completion of the Company's month-end valuation procedures relating to its investment positions, and any such change could be material. For month-end reports of its estimated book value per common share, the Company's valuation procedures are generally less comprehensive than the valuation procedures employed for the Company's quarterly and year-end financial statements, as the Company does not necessarily solicit third party valuations on substantially all of its assets, nor do the Company's registered independent public accountants generally perform the types of reviews or audits that they do for the Company's quarterly or annual financial statements. It is possible that, if the Company were to undertake a more comprehensive valuation analysis and/or obtain a review or audit from its accountants for its month-end report, it could determine that its book value per common share as of July 31, 2012 differs materially from the estimate set forth above. There can be no assurance that the Company's estimated book value per common share as of July 31, 2012 is indicative of what the Company's results are likely to be for the three or nine month period ending September 30, 2012 or in future periods, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise our estimated book value per common share prior to our issuance of financial statements for such three and nine month periods.
