Resource America's Leveraged Loan Manager Nominated for Creditflux Best CLO Awards

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Resource America, Inc. (NASDAQ: REXI) (the "Company") announces that its leveraged loan manager, Apidos Capital Management, has been selected as a finalist for several Creditflux CLO manager awards. Apidos is a finalist in the categories of Best 2007 US CLO, Best 2006 US CLO and Best 2005 US CLO. It is the only finalist that has been nominated in all three of these categories. Apidos has also been nominated for Best US CLO manager. The winners will be announced on May 17, 2011 in London. Creditflux uses the Par Plus ratio to evaluate CLOs. According to them, "the Par Plus ratio combines annualized equity distributions since inception with cumulative changes to a CLO's par value. In other words, it measures both equity returns and the ability to avoid losses. In practice, the most successful deals have maintained a high level of par while also making substantial pay-outs to equity holders."
