MOORPARK, Calif. -- April 23, 2013

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYSE: PMT) (“PMT”) today announced that
its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, PennyMac Corp., plans to make a private
offering of $200 million aggregate principal amount of its Exchangeable Senior
Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”). The initial purchasers will have a 30-day option
from the date of the offering to purchase up to an additional $30 million
aggregate principal amount of Notes from PennyMac Corp. The Notes will be
offered only to qualified institutional buyers (as defined in the Securities
Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”)) pursuant to Rule 144A under
the Securities Act.

The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by PMT and exchangeable
for PMT’s common shares of beneficial interest (“Common Shares”) at any time
until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately
preceding the maturity date. The interest rate, exchange rate and other terms
of the Notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering. The
Notes will be PennyMac Corp.’s senior unsecured obligations and will rank
equally with all of its present and future senior unsecured debt and senior to
any future subordinated debt.

The net proceeds from the offering are intended to be used to fund the
business and investment activities of PMT and its subsidiaries, which may
include the acquisition of distressed mortgage loans or other investments; the
funding of the continued growth of its correspondent lending business,
including the purchase of jumbo loans; the repayment of other indebtedness;
and for general corporate purposes.

Neither the Notes nor the Common Shares issuable upon exchange of the Notes
will be registered under the Securities Act. Neither the Notes nor the Common
Shares issuable upon exchange of the Notes may be offered or sold in the
United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the
registration requirements of the Securities Act.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of
an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state
in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to
registration or qualification under the securities laws of any state. It is
issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
