Resource Capital Corp. Reports Results for Third Quarter 2006

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 2006--Resource Capital Corp. (NYSE: RSO) (the "Company" or "RCC"), a real estate investment trust focused on originating and investing in commercial real estate secured loans, whole loans, B-notes, mezzanine loans, mortgage-related securities and other real estate related assets and, to a lesser extent, higher-yielding commercial finance assets and asset-backed securities, reported estimated REIT taxable income of $9.2 million or $0.52 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2006, as compared to $4.6 million or $0.30 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 an increase of $4.6 million (101%) and $0.22 (73%) per diluted share, respectively. A reconciliation of estimated REIT taxable income to the Company's GAAP net income accompanies this release. As previously reported, on September 28, 2006 the Company sold the remainder of its agency residential mortgage backed securities ("RMBS") portfolio and terminated the related interest rate swap contract in order to redeploy its invested capital into higher earning asset classes. Consequently, included in the Company's operating results for the quarter ended and nine months ended September 30, 2006 is a net loss of $8.3 million and $8.8 million, respectively, incurred as a result of this sale.

Including this transaction, the Company reported a net loss of $2.4 million or ($0.14) per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2006 as compared to net income of $3.8 million or $0.24 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 a decrease of $6.2 million (164%) and $0.38 (158%) per diluted share, respectively. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 was $8.8 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, as compared to net income for the period ended September 30, 2005 of $6.0 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, an increase of $2.8 million (47%) and $0.12 (31%) per diluted share, respectively.

Pro-forma net income from on-going operations excludes the net realized loss from the agency RMBS sale. Pro-forma net income from on-going operations was $5.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2006 as compared to $3.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2005, an increase of $2.1 million. Pro-forma net income was $17.6 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2006 as compared to $6.0 million for the period ended September 30, 2005 an increase of $11.6 million. The following table reconciles net income to pro-forma income from on-going operations for all periods:

(1) For the three months ended September 30, 2006, the weighted
 average number of shares used in calculating the net loss per share-
 diluted is the same as the basic weighted average number of shares as
 a result of a net loss available to common shareholders for the
 period. Diluted shares used in the pro-forma per share-diluted
 computation are 17,720,590.

Pro-forma income from on-going operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and accordingly, should not be considered as a substitute for net (loss) income.

    Highlights for the third quarter and recent developments include:

    --  The Company paid a quarterly dividend of $0.37 per common
        share for the third quarter of 2006, an increase of $0.01 per
        common share or 3% from the dividend paid for the second
        quarter of 2006. This distribution was paid on October 13,
        2006 to all shareholders of record as of September 29, 2006.

    --  The Company's net interest income increased by $2.3 million or

        as compared to $6.0 million for the same period in 2005.

The Company believes that a presentation of estimated REIT taxable income provides useful information to investors regarding its financial condition and results of operations as this measurement is used to determine the amount of dividends that RCC is required to declare to our stockholders in order to maintain its status as a REIT for federal income tax purposes. Since RCC, as a REIT, expects to make distributions based on taxable earnings, RCC expects that its distributions may at times be more or less than its reported earnings. Total taxable income is the aggregate amount of taxable income generated by RCC and by its domestic and foreign taxable REIT subsidiaries. Estimated REIT taxable income excludes the undistributed taxable income of RCC's domestic taxable REIT subsidiary, if any such income exists, which is not included in REIT taxable income until distributed by RCC. There is no requirement that RCC's domestic taxable REIT subsidiary distribute its earnings to the Company. Estimated REIT taxable income, however, includes the taxable income of RCC's foreign taxable REIT subsidiaries because the Company will generally be required to recognize and report its taxable income on a current basis. RCC uses estimated REIT taxable income for this purpose. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of estimated REIT taxable income may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.
