Annaly Commences Offer For CreXus Shares

The payment in lieu of a dividend will be based on the dividend paid with regard to the calendar quarter immediately before the calendar quarter during which the Offer expires. CreXus has declared a dividend of $0.25 per share with regard to the first quarter of 2013 payable to holders of record on March 28, 2013. Therefore, if the expiration date of the Offer occurs during the second quarter of 2013, the payment in lieu of a dividend will be $0.002740 for each day between March 29, 2013, and the expiration date of the Offer (including the expiration date). If the Offer expires on April 16, 2013, the amount that will paid with regard to shares that are tendered in response to the Offer, and will be paid as a result of the Merger to CreXus stockholders who do not tender their shares, will be $13.05206 per share.

The Offer is subject to customary conditions in addition to the 51% tender condition. Annaly has the right to waive any or all of those additional conditions. Annaly also has the right to extend the expiration date of the Offer and to amend the terms of the Offer, except that the Agreement and Plan of Merger does not permit Annaly to decrease the offer price, to reduce the number of shares it is seeking or to change the form of consideration.

The Information Agent with regard to the offer is Innisfree M&A Incorporated, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company LLC is the Depositary, and BofA Merrill Lynch is the Dealer Manager.

Notice to Investors

This press release is not an offer to purchase, or a solicitation of sales of, CreXus Common Stock or any other securities. The Offer is made solely by the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. Acquisition and Annaly are filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission today a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO that includes the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal and other documents relating to the Offer. In addition, CreXus is filing with the SEC today a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 that describes, among other things, the unanimous recommendation of CreXus’ Board (with two members who are employees of Annaly not present or voting) that CreXus’ stockholders (other than Annaly and its subsidiaries) tender their shares in response to the Offer and, if approval of the Merger by CreXus’ stockholders is required by applicable law or by the rules of a stock exchange or securities quotation system on which CreXus’ Common Stock is listed or quoted in order to carry out the Merger, that the CreXus stockholders vote any shares of Common Stock they own in favor of approving the Merger. The documents filed with the SEC contain important information, and CreXus stockholders are urged to read them and the exhibits to them in their entirety in connection with their decision whether to tender their shares. Those documents can be obtained at no charge at the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov. In addition, copies of the Offer to Purchase, the Letter of Transmittal and other documents relating to the Offer can be obtained from the Information Agent, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, at 501 Madison Avenue, 20 th Floor, New York, NY 10022 or by calling toll free (877) 687-1875 (for stockholders) or (212) 750-5833 (banks and brokers).
