Q4 2012 Results Initial OperationsJAVELIN commenced operations on October 9, 2012 with the completion of our initial public and private offerings of a total of 7,500,000 Common shares, which raised equity capital totaling $150.0 million. The Company completed the substantial majority of its initial investments in Agency Securities by October 16, 2012 and in Non-Agency Securities by November 9, 2012. The Company completed the substantial majority of its initial hedging by October 16, 2012. Taxable REIT Income and Core Income Estimated taxable REIT income for the initial operating period ended December 31, 2012, was approximately $5.5 million, which represents an annualized return on paid-in capital of 15.8% for this 84 day period. The Company distributes dividends based on its estimate of taxable earnings per Common share, not based on earnings calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Taxable REIT income and GAAP earnings will differ primarily because of the non-taxable unrealized changes in the value of the Company's Non-Agency Securities portfolio and the Company's derivatives, which the Company uses as hedges. These unrealized gains/losses are included in GAAP earnings, whereas unrealized valuation changes are not included in taxable income.
