Management Remarks

“During the quarter, the Dynex team continued to skillfully navigate a historically volatile macroeconomic environment while maintaining book value within this decade’s range despite a meaningful widening in spreads,” stated Byron L. Boston, Chief Executive Officer. “Although our total economic return has shown a modest decline of (2.3)% year-to-date, we continue to outpace industry indices and the broader fixed income sector. We have remained patient and disciplined, raised and deployed capital, and ended the quarter with significant dry powder.”

Mr. Boston continued, “Our focus on capital preservation has put us in a strong position entering the second half of the year, which we believe will enable us to take advantage of the attractive opportunities we are currently seeing in the mortgage market. We have ample liquidity, our book value has been well-protected, and we have an experienced management team committed to generating attractive returns for our investors. I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us in the second half of 2022.”

Second Quarter 2022 Summary of Results

The second quarter's negative TER of $(1.06) per common share was largely driven by spread widening on Agency RMBS, which comprised the majority of the Company's loss in book value per common share of $(1.45) during the second quarter of 2022. The Company's hedge positioning prevented additional losses in book value per common share by offsetting the impact of higher interest rates on the fair value of its investment portfolio. Realized and unrealized losses in fair value of the Company's investments, net of hedges, of $(49.2) million drove the decline in the Company's comprehensive loss to common shareholders to $(33.5) million, or $(0.85) per common share, for the second quarter of 2022. EAD per common share, a non-GAAP measure which excludes the impact of changes in fair value of the Company's investments and hedges, was $0.40 per common share for the second quarter of 2022, a decline of $0.04 per share from the prior quarter resulting primarily from higher repurchase agreement financing costs.

The following table summarizes the changes in the Company's financial position during the second quarter of 2022, including its components of comprehensive loss to common shareholders:

(1)

Average balance for assets is calculated as a simple average of the daily amortized cost and excludes unrealized gains and losses as well as securities pending settlement if applicable.

(2)

Average balance for liabilities is calculated as a simple average of the daily borrowings outstanding during the period.

(3)

Effective yield is calculated by dividing the sum of gross interest income and scheduled premium amortization/discount accretion (both of which are annualized for any reporting period less than 12 months) and prepayment compensation and premium amortization/discount accretion adjustments (collectively, "prepayment adjustments"), which are not annualized, by the average balance of asset type outstanding during the reporting period.

(4)

Cost of funds is calculated by dividing annualized interest expense by the total average balance of borrowings outstanding during the period with an assumption of 360 days in a year.

(5)

CMBS IO includes Agency and non-Agency issued securities.

(6)

Drop income from TBA securities is calculated by multiplying the notional amount of the TBA dollar roll positions by the difference in price between two TBA securities with the same terms but different settlement dates.

(7)

Adjusted net interest spread includes the impact from TBA drop income of 34 and 22 basis points, respectively.

The Company's net interest income and net interest spread declined during the second quarter compared to the prior quarter as the recent increases in the Federal Funds rate continue to impact the Company's cost of financing its investments. The increase in interest expense compared to the prior quarter was partially offset by an increase in interest income resulting primarily from a modest increase in the effective yield on investments. The Company's shift into higher coupon TBA securities, which began in the first quarter of 2022, continued during the second quarter with moves into 4.0% and 4.5% coupons. The resulting increase in TBA drop income of $1.3 million, which also provided some offset of higher financing costs, helped to cushion the decline in the Company's adjusted net interest income and adjusted net interest spread for the second quarter.

The following table provides detail on the coupon composition of the Company's 30-year fixed-rate Agency RMBS (including TBA securities) as of the dates indicated:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company's operating results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures including EAD to common shareholders (formerly, core net operating income to common shareholders) (including on a per common share basis), adjusted net interest income and the related metric adjusted net interest spread. Because these measures are used in the Company's internal analysis of financial and operating performance, management believes that they provide greater transparency to investors of management's views of economic performance. Management also believes the presentation of these measures, when analyzed in conjunction with the Company's GAAP operating results, allows investors to more effectively evaluate and compare the performance of the Company to that of its peers, although the Company's presentation of its non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

EAD to common shareholders is a non-GAAP metric used by the Company as a measure of the investment portfolio’s return based on the effective yield of its investments, net of financing costs and other normal recurring operating income/expenses, net. It is one of several factors the Board considers in determining the appropriate level of distributions to shareholders, and therefore the Company believes it serves as a useful indicator for investors in evaluating the Company's performance and its ability to pay dividends. In addition to the non-GAAP reconciliation set forth below, which derives EAD to common shareholders from GAAP comprehensive income to common shareholders, EAD to common shareholders is alternatively determined by adjusting net interest income to include interest rate swap periodic interest benefit/cost (if any), drop income on TBA dollar roll transactions, general and administrative expenses, and preferred dividends. Drop income generated by TBA dollar roll positions, which is included in "gain (loss) on derivatives instruments, net" on the Company's consolidated statements of comprehensive income, is included in EAD and in adjusted net interest income because management views drop income as the economic equivalent of net interest income (interest income less implied financing cost) on the underlying Agency security from trade date to settlement date. For reporting periods during which the Company uses interest rate swaps to economically hedge the impact of changing interest rates on its borrowing costs from repurchase agreements, management also includes interest rate swap net periodic interest benefit/cost in adjusted net interest income because management considers such benefit/cost to represent either an offset to or an additional cost of financing in addition to GAAP interest expense. However, these non-GAAP measures do not provide a full perspective on the Company's results of operations, and therefore, their usefulness is limited. For example, these non-GAAP measures do not include the changes in fair value of investments or changes in fair value of and costs of terminating derivative instruments used by management to economically hedge the impact of changing interest rates on the fair value of the Company's portfolio and book value per common share. As a result, these non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's GAAP results as reported on its consolidated statements of comprehensive income. Additionally, similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies may not be computed in the same or similar fashion. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is presented below.
