  of CreXus Investment Corp. by Annaly Capital Management, Inc.

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- November 12, 2012

The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP has commenced an investigation into the
offer extended by Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (Annaly) to acquire CreXus
Investment Corp. (CreXus) (NYSE: CXS).

Annaly currently owns about 12% of CreXus. On November 12, 2012, CreXus
announced that it had received a proposal from Annaly to acquire the remaining
shares of CreXus that Annaly does not already own for $12.50 per share in
cash, a premium of only 13% to CreXus’s closing price on Friday, November 9,
2012.

Annaly’s wholly owned subsidiary, Fixed Income Discount Advisory Co. (FIDAC)
manages CreXus, and two of FIDAC’s employees are on CreXus’ board of
directors.

Wohl & Fruchter’s investigation concerns the fairness of the buyout offer and
the process to be used by CreXus to evaluate the offer in light of the
conflicts of interest posed by Annaly’s existing ownership stake in CreXus and
FIDAC’s management of CreXus.

Persons with relevant information, and CreXus shareholders with questions
about this investigation, are invited to contact our Firm.
