  CreXus Investment Corp. Reports Results for the 4th Quarter and Year Ended
  2012

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- February 19, 2013

CreXus Investment Corp. (NYSE: CXS), today reported GAAP net income for the
quarter ended December 31, 2012 of $17.9 million or $0.23 per average share,
as compared to $41.8 million or $0.55 per average share for the quarter ended
December 31, 2011, and $22.6 million or $0.30 per average share for the
quarter ended September 30, 2012.

GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $71.0 million or
$0.93 per average share as compared to GAAP net income of $108.4 million or
$1.73 per average share for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Common dividends declared for the quarters ended December 31, 2012, December
31, 2011, and September 30, 2012, were $0.32, $0.35 and $0.32 per common
share, respectively. The Company distributes dividends based on its current
estimate of taxable earnings per common share, not GAAP earnings. Taxable and
GAAP earnings will typically differ due to items such as differences in
premium amortization and discount accretion, non-taxable unrealized and
realized gains and losses, provision for loan losses, and non-deductible
general and administrative expenses. The annualized dividend yield on the
Company’s common stock for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, based on the
December 31, 2012 closing price of $12.25, was 10.45%.

On a GAAP basis the Company provided a return on average equity of 7.86%,
18.12%, and 9.83%, for the quarters ended December 31, 2012, December 31,
2011, and September 30, 2012, respectively. On a GAAP basis, the Company
provided a return on average equity of 7.76%, and 12.03% for the years ended
December 31, 2012, and 2011, respectively.

The weighted average yield on commercial real estate loans and preferred
equity was 10.56%, 29.86% and 10.29% at December 31, 2012, December 31, 2011
and September 30, 2012, respectively.
