PMC Commercial Trust Announces End Of Strategic Review And Executive Changes

Mr. Salit explained that "while our current business plan has been successful and stable, it is our intention to embark on strategic growth initiatives to build shareholder value.  We are evaluating complementary lines of business including leveraged property acquisitions and other non-lending real estate related investments that we believe will be accretive to value and provide a stronger growth platform. We remain committed to executing our current business plan while considering and implementing strategies to maximize shareholder value. We are confident that we are taking the steps necessary to strengthen the Company's balance sheet and results of operations."

Mr. Salit continued, "our emphasis on SBA 7(a) lending since 2007 has produced positive results including increased loan originations each year.  We have achieved these positive results through focused marketing initiatives.  As a result, we have increased total loans funded by a significant amount to $26.6 million in fundings during the first half of 2012 compared to $14.0 million during the same period in 2011.  We are anticipating loan fundings in 2012 to be greater than $50 million compared to $38.4 million in 2011."

Changes to PMC Commercial Trust's Board

Mr. Rosemore's role as a member of the Board and as Chairman of the Board also ended on October 26, 2012.  Mr. Salit has been appointed to replace Mr. Rosemore on the Board and as the Chairman of the Board.

Expected Dividend Declarations

The Board has re-evaluated its current dividend policy and believes that the quarterly cash dividend anticipated to be declared in December 2012 should be reduced to better align it with our core operations.  When established, it is anticipated that the quarterly dividend will be in an amount that can reasonably be expected to be maintained over the next year, although no assurances can be given to that effect.  Currently the Board anticipates the next quarterly cash dividend to be $0.12 per common share.

Forward Looking Statements

Certain matters discussed in this press release are "forward-looking statements" intended to qualify for the safe harbors from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These forward-looking statements can generally be identified as such because the context of the statement will include words such as the Company "expects," "anticipates" or words of similar import.  Similarly, statements that describe the Company's future plans, objectives or goals are also forward-looking statements.  Such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including the financial performance of the Company, real estate conditions and market valuations of its shares, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated.  The Company's ability to meet targeted financial and operating results, including loan originations, operating income, net income and earnings per share depends on a variety of economic, competitive, and governmental factors, including changes in real estate market conditions, changes in interest rates, the Company's ability to access capital under its credit facility or otherwise and the Company's ability to execute its strategic initiatives, many of which are beyond the Company's control and which are described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, the Company can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained.  Shareholders, potential investors and other readers are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements.  The forward-looking statements made herein are only made as of the date of this press release and the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update such forward-looking statements to reflect any changes in expectations, subsequent events or circumstances .
