Ellington Financial LLC Reports Estimated Book Value Per Share As Of February 28, 2013

OLD GREENWICH, Conn., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ellington Financial LLC (NYSE: EFC) ("Ellington Financial" or the "Company") today announced that its estimated book value per common share as of February 28, 2013 was $25.02, or $24.52 on a diluted basis. Estimated book value per share on a diluted basis takes into account securities convertible into the Company's common shares. These estimates give effect to the previously announced fourth quarter 2012 and special dividends which together amounted to $1.52 per share and are payable on March 15, 2013 to holders of record on March 1, 2013, with an ex-dividend date of February 27, 2013. 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 February 28, 2013 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 February 28, 2013 is indicative of what the Company's results are likely to be for the three month period ending March 31, 2013 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-month period.
