PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - Resource America, Inc. (
The Company reported a GAAP net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.3 million, or $0.11 per common share-diluted, and net income attributable to common shareholders of $25.8 million, or $1.25 per common share-diluted, for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, respectively, as compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $3.0 million, or $0.15 per common share-diluted, and a net loss of $8.2 million, or $0.42 per common share-diluted, for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2011, respectively.
Jonathan Cohen, CEO and President, commented, "We are very pleased with the progress we made during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. It was a year in which we showed strong growth and positioned ourselves for even more growth. Our income from continuing operations was $25.9 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, a dramatic increase over the loss of $6.0 million for the year ended September 30, 2011. We paid off $17.6 million of debt and restructured the rest at lower interest rates. We closed the transaction creating CVC Credit Partners, which showed the potential value of our asset management platforms, as we realized a $54.5 million gain, received gross cash proceeds of $25.0 million, retained substantial incentive fees and now own 33% of a world-class global credit management business. Our strong liquidity position has allowed us to repurchase our common shares, and we have bought over 558,000 shares at an average price of $5.88 since October 2011. Our real estate businesses are growing significantly, and Resource Capital Corp., Resource Real Estate Opportunity REIT and our real estate institutional joint ventures raised over $266.0 million in new capital, on which we will earn stable and long term future asset management fees, positioning Resource America for continued growth."

|1.||Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, presents the Company's operations without the effect of its commercial finance operations. The Company believes that this provides useful information to investors since it allows investors to evaluate the Company's progress in both its real estate and financial fund management segments for the three months and fiscal years ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 separately from its commercial finance operations. Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, should not be considered as an alternative to (loss) income from continuing operations before taxes (computed in accordance with GAAP). Instead, adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, should be reviewed in connection with (loss) income from continuing operations before taxes in the Company's consolidated financial statements, to help analyze how the Company's business is performing.|
|2.||Loss from commercial finance operations consists of revenues and expenses from commercial finance operations (including gains or losses from the sale of leases and loans, provision for credit losses and depreciation and amortization) net of non-controlling interests.|
|3.||Income tax provision (benefit) is calculated using the Company's tax rate for the period, excluding one-time tax adjustments.|
|4.||Dilutive shares used in the calculation of adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders per common share-diluted includes an additional 1.0 million shares for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and an additional 1.1 million shares for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011, which were antidilutive for the periods and, as such, were not used in the calculation of GAAP (loss) income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders per common share-diluted.|
