Resource Capital Corp.'s Securitized Vehicles Nominated for Creditflux Best CLO Awards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Resource Capital Corp. (NYSE: RSO) (the "Company") announced today that all three of its leveraged loan CLO investments managed by Apidos Capital Management LLC (an affiliate of the manager), have been selected as finalists for several Creditflux CLO manager awards. Apidos CLO I, III, and Cinco have been selected as finalists in the categories of Best 2005 US CLO, Best 2006 US CLO and Best 2007 US CLO. 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."
