Dividend Declarations

Common dividends declared for the quarters ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2012 were $0.35, $0.40, and $0.50 per common share, respectively. The Company distributes dividends based on its current estimate of taxable earnings per common share, not GAAP net income. Taxable earnings and GAAP net income will typically differ due to items such as non-taxable unrealized and realized gains and losses, differences in premium amortization and discount accretion, and non-deductible general and administrative expenses. The annualized dividend yield on the Company’s common stock for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, based on the September 30, 2013 closing price of $11.58, was 12.09%, as compared to 12.73% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and 11.88% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.
