Special Committee Of CreXus Investment Corp.'s Board Of Directors Announces Retention Of Advisors

CreXus Investment Corp. (NYSE: CXS) today announced that the Special Committee of its Board of Directors has retained Lazard as its independent financial advisor and Goodwin Procter LLP as its independent legal counsel to assist the Special Committee in its work. As CreXus previously announced on November 13, 2012, the Board of Directors formed a Special Committee of independent directors to consider, among other things, a proposal from Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NYSE: NLY) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of CreXus not currently owned by Annaly for $12.50 per share in cash.

The Special Committee has not set a definitive timetable for its evaluation, and no decisions have been made by the Special Committee with respect to CreXus’ response to Annaly’s proposal. There can be no assurance that any agreement will be executed or that Annaly’s proposal, or any other transaction, will be approved or consummated. The Special Committee does not intend to disclose developments regarding these matters until it has determined that there is a need, if any, to update the market.
