We have also entered into “to-be-announced” (“TBA”) positions to facilitate the future purchase of Agency RMBS. Under the terms of these TBAs, the Company agrees to purchase, for future delivery, Agency RMBS with certain principal and interest specifications and certain types of underlying collateral, but the particular Agency RMBS to be delivered are not identified until shortly before (generally two days) the TBA settlement date. At December 31, 2012, we had $40.0 million net notional amount of TBA positions with a net weighted average purchase price of 104.5%. As of December 31, 2012, our TBA portfolio had a net weighted average yield at purchase of 2.36% and a net weighted average settlement date of March 12, 2013. We have recorded derivative liabilities of $0.1 million reflecting TBA positions.
