Armour Residential Reit, Inc. Company Update April 20, 2016

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

(“ARMOUR” or the “Company”), and any other statements regarding ARMOUR’s future expectations, beliefs, goals or prospects constitute forward-looking statements made within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Any statements that are not statements of historical fact (including statements containing the words “believes,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “estimates” and similar expressions) should also be considered forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include but are not limited to statements regarding the projections for ARMOUR’s business and plans for future growth and operational improvements. A number of important factors could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. ARMOUR assumes no obligation to update the information in this communication, except as otherwise required by law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. This material is for information purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a recommendation for any securities or financial instruments. The statements, information and estimates contained herein are based on information that the presenter believes to be reliable as of today's date, but cannot be represented that such statements, information or estimates are complete or accurate. Actual realized yields, durations and net durations described herein will depend on a number of factors that cannot be predicted with certainty. Estimated yields do not reflect any of the costs of operation of ARMOUR. THE INFORMATION PRESENTED HEREIN IS UNAUDITED AND UNREVIEWED.

Commentary 3 Based on ARMOUR’s interest in acquiring JAVELIN Mortgage Investment Corp., ARMOUR elected not to publish the Monthly Company Update during February and March 2016. ARMOUR’s acquisition of JAVELIN was completed on April 6, 2016. With today’s Monthly Company Update, ARMOUR resumes its custom of publishing Monthly Company Updates. Future editions and the timing of the Updates may take on a different form as ARMOUR continues to evaluate the best way to deliver useful information to our shareholders, equity analysts and credit officers.

ARMOUR Monthly Metrics 4 (1) Some of the data may be based on information preceding the date of the report (i.e., closing prices). (2) A portion of the dividend payable has been subtracted from the book value range based on accrual throughout the month. (3) Leverage does not include TBA dollar rolls or forward settling transactions. Leverage is based on the most recent 10Q/10K at the time of the 1/26/16 report and is based on current equity for the 4/19/16 report.
