During the fourth quarter of 2022, ARMOUR raised approximately $174.1 million of equity capital by issuing approximately 30,721,000 of the Company’s common shares through its previously announced at-the-market offering program. At December 31, 2022, ARMOUR’s common shares outstanding totaled approximately 162,912,000. The Company estimates that book value per common share at that date was in the range of $5.75 to $5.83, as compared to $5.83 per common share at September 30, 2022.

The Company’s financial reporting closing procedures for 2022 are still in process and, as a result, the Company’s preliminary estimates of the financial information above are based on information currently available to management, including a number of assumptions. Also, these estimates are not comprehensive statements of the Company’s financial position and results as of and for the periods ended December 31, 2022. The Company’s actual financial position and results as of and for the periods ended December 31, 2022 may differ materially from these estimates. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on this preliminary information. These estimates are the responsibility of the Company’s management, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update this information prior to the filing of the Company’s next Form 10-K. These estimates are unaudited and have not been reviewed by the Company’s independent public accountants.

In order to maintain this tax status, ARMOUR is required to timely distribute substantially all of its ordinary REIT taxable income. Dividends paid in excess of current tax earnings and profits for the year will generally not be taxable to common stockholders. Actual dividends are determined at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors, who may consider additional factors including the Company’s results of operations, cash flows, financial condition and capital requirements as well as current market conditions, expected opportunities and other relevant factors.
