"I appreciate the Board's confidence in me to lead Dynex forward as the Company grows and diversifies its investment strategies. The current investment environment is quite friendly to a mortgage REIT investment strategy, and I look forward to the opportunity. We appreciate our shareholders patience over the recent past as we waited for the investment cycle to improve. We are excited about the prospects for Dynex and look forward to growing the Company and increasing value for our shareholders," he said.
