American Capital Agency Corp. Announces Adjournment Of Annual Meeting To June 28, 2013 With Respect To Charter Amendment

BETHESDA, Md., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Capital Agency Corp. (Nasdaq: AGNC) ("AGNC" or the "Company") announced today that its reconvened 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held earlier today was adjourned with respect to the proposal to amend AGNC's certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of preferred stock from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 shares.  The meeting will reconvene on June 28, 2013, allowing stockholders additional time to vote on the amendment to its certificate of incorporation.

The charter amendment requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of all shares of AGNC's common stock outstanding to pass.  In addition, brokers do not have discretionary authority to vote on the charter amendment and must receive voting instructions from beneficial owners of shares held in street name in order for the shares to be voted on the matter.

During the period of the adjournment, AGNC will continue to solicit proxies from its stockholders with respect to the proposed charter amendment.  Stockholders who have not already done so are encouraged to vote on the proposal.  Stockholders who have already voted need not take any action on the proposal, although they may change their vote for the charter amendment by executing a new proxy, revoking a previously given proxy or attending the adjourned meeting and voting in person, as set forth in AGNC's proxy statement.

The meeting adjournment with respect to the charter amendment proposal will be until 9:00 a.m. EDT, on June 28, 2013, at the Company's offices at 2 Bethesda Metro Center, 12th Floor, Bethesda, MD 20814. 

AGNC filed the proxy statement for its 2013 Annual Meeting with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 20, 2013 pursuant to which the Company is soliciting additional proxies in connection with the charter amendment proposal.  Stockholders are urged to read the proxy statement and other relevant documents filed with the SEC.

If you have not yet voted or wish to change your vote on the charter amendment proposal identified as proposal two in AGNC's proxy statement, we urge you to vote by phone or through the internet using the instructions provided in your voting instruction form or proxy card.  You may also contact Georgeson Inc. at 800-676-0194 if you need assistance with voting.
