NEW YORK -- March 8, 2013

Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE: CIM) today filed with theU.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission("SEC") its Annual Report on Form 10-K for
the year ended December 31, 2011 (“2011 10-K”). In the 2011 10-K, Chimera
restated its previously issued (i) consolidated statement of financial
condition included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2010 and (ii) consolidated statements of operations and
comprehensive income (loss), consolidated statements of changes in
stockholders’ equity, and consolidated statements of cash flows for the years
ending December 31, 2010 and 2009, including the cumulative effect of the
restatement on retained earnings (accumulated deficit) as of the earliest
period presented (the “Restatement”).

The Restatement has no material effect on the Company’s previously reported
GAAP or economic book values, the net increase (decrease) in cash and cash
equivalents as presented in its historical Consolidated Statements of Cash
Flows, nor any effect on taxable income.

The Company continues to work diligently to complete the ongoing work on
becoming current on all of its filings required under applicable securities
laws. The Company expects to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the
quarterly period ending March 31, 2012 within 60 days of filing this 2011 10-K
and any subsequent unfiled Quarterly Reports and the 2012 10-K will be filed
as soon as practicable.

For a complete discussion of the Restatement, see the Explanatory Note, Notes
16 and 17 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements, “Item 6 –
Selected Financial Data” and “Item 7 – Management’s Discussion and Analysis of
Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the 2011 10-K.
