(NYSE: DX) reported net income available to common shareholders of $18.3 million, or $0.34 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $18.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2012 and $14.4 million, or $0.36 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company reported net income available to common shareholders of $72.0 million, or $1.35 per common share for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $39.8 million, or $1.03 per common share for the same period in 2011.

Management Remarks

Mr. Thomas Akin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with the consistency of our results. We posted a return on average common equity of 13.0% for the fourth quarter and 13.8% for the full year 2012. We increased equity by $245.4 million during the year to $616.7 million at December 31, 2012 and executed our strategy of allocating more capital to CMBS. We grew book value per common share during the year by $1.10 to $10.30 at December 31, 2012. For the fourth quarter, our net interest spread was a solid 1.93%, a modest decline of 0.07% from the third quarter's 2.00%. Our total portfolio repayments for the quarter were $233.6 million, or less than 6% of our average assets. Our strategy of investing in short duration high quality assets has consistently performed and we remain well positioned for the uncertain investment environment that lies ahead."

Earnings Summary

Net interest income was $21.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $19.0 million for the third quarter of 2012. Average interest earning investments increased to $4,117.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $3,729.1 million for the third quarter of 2012. Our net interest spread for the fourth quarter of 2012 of 1.93% is the difference between the yield on the Company's interest-earning investment portfolio of 3.04% and the cost of funds of 1.11%. For the third quarter of 2012, net interest spread of 2.00% consisted of the yield on the Company's interest-earning investments of 3.12% less the cost of funds of 1.12%. For the fourth quarter of 2011, the net interest spread of 2.56% consisted of the yield on the Company's interest-earning investments of 3.76% less the cost of funds of 1.20%. The net interest spread declined in the fourth quarter due primarily to declining yields on the Company's Agency MBS portfolio from recent purchases of Hybrid ARMs and CMBS IOs and from interest rate resets on ARMs.
