(1) The annualized return on average common equity for the second quarter of 2013 was calculated using an adjusted net income to common shareholders of $18.4 million. This amount excludes fair value adjustments of $11.0 million related to long-term interest rate swaps added during the quarter for which the Company did not elect hedge accounting. On a GAAP basis, including the fair value adjustments, our net income to common shareholders and annualized return on average common equity for the second quarter of 2013 were $29.4 million and 21.0%, respectively. Management believes the adjusted return on average common equity is useful to investors because it enhances comparability between the periods presented.

Management Remarks

Mr. Thomas Akin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Mortgage REIT portfolios experienced a volatile combination of rising rates and spreads during the second quarter that sent book values substantially lower. Leverage ratios were also affected and moved sharply higher for most mortgage REITs as book values dropped. At Dynex, we were disappointed to see our book value decrease, but our business model and portfolio remain largely intact as our leverage moved modestly higher and yet remained within our targets. Additionally, because we did not invest in 15-year or 30-year mortgages but instead invested in securities with shorter maturities and more predictable cash flows, our duration extension in the quarter was minimal. Going forward, we expect to maintain our leverage target below 6.5 times consistent with our investment discipline. Our conservative investment strategy of low duration, high quality investments remains applicable in the current environment, and we expect to recover shareholder value as our portfolio rolls down the yield curve and as markets stabilize."
