Apollo Residential Mortgage, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2012 Dividend of $0.75 per Share

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - Apollo Residential Mortgage, Inc. (the "Company" or "AMTG") (NYSE: AMTG) today announced the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.75 per share of common stock for the second quarter of 2012. The dividend is payable on July 31, 2012 to common stockholders of record on June 29, 2012.

The Company's dividend policy is set at the discretion of its Board of Directors and depends upon, among other things, the Company's operating earnings forecast, realized gains and losses and the Company's compliance with REIT distribution requirements, including its estimate of its taxable income. The Company's taxable income differs from the Company's income reported under GAAP, primarily due to differences in the amount of discount accretion and premium amortization recognized and unrealized gains and losses on the Company's mortgage-backed securities and interest rate swaps, which are not components of taxable income.
