NEW YORK -- (Business Wire)
Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE: CIM) today filed with the U.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

of filing this 2011 10-K and any subsequent unfiled Quarterly Reports
and the 2012 10-K will be filed as soon as practicable.
