Bimini Capital Management Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

We have concluded that, after the close of its public offering, Orchid is a variable interest entity pursuant to financial accounting rules because Orchid's equity holders lack the ability through voting rights to make decisions about its activities that have a significant effect on its success. We have also concluded that Bimini is the primary beneficiary of Orchid because, under the terms of the management agreement, Bimini has the power to direct the activities of Orchid that most significantly impact its economic performance including asset selection, asset and liability management and investment portfolio risk management. As a result, we will continue to consolidate Orchid in our Consolidated Financial Statements.

The following is a summarized presentation of the unaudited balance sheets as of December 31, 2012, and 2011, and the unaudited quarterly results of operations for the calendar quarters ended December 31, 2012, September 30, 2012, and December 31, 2011.
