23-Oct-2012

Other Events


ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.

On October 22, 2012, Orchid Island Capital, Inc. ("Orchid"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bimini Capital Management, Inc. (the "Company"), filed a Form S-11 Registration Statement (File No. 333-184538) (the "Registration Statement") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") in connection with a proposed initial public offering of its common stock (the "Offering"). The number of shares of common stock and the price range of the Offering have not yet been determined. The proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used to purchase pass-through residential mortgage-backed securities and structured residential mortgage-backed securities, the principal and interest payments of which are guaranteed by the Federal National Mortgage Association, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation or the Government National Mortgage Association. Orchid intends to qualify and will elect to be taxed as a real estate investment trust ("REIT") under the Internal Revenue of 1986, as amended, commencing with its short taxable year ending December 31, 2012.

The Company, through Bimini Advisors, LLC, its taxable REIT subsidiary (the "Manager"), expects to provide management services to Orchid pursuant to the terms of a Management Agreement that is expected to be entered into by Orchid and the Manager upon completion of the Offering (the "Management Agreement"). The terms of the Management Agreement have not yet been finalized.

The Registration Statement has been filed by Orchid with the SEC but has not yet become effective. The Company cannot assure you that the Offering will be completed, or if completed, what the final terms thereof will be. Orchid's common stock may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the Registration Statement becomes effective. The Offering will be made only by means of a prospectus. When available, a preliminary prospectus related to the Offering may be obtained by contacting:

Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. Attn: Syndicate Department 58 South Service Road, Suite 160 Melville, New York 11747 Telephone: 631-270-1600 Fax: 631-270-1998

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

When used in this Current Report on Form 8-K, statements which are not historical in nature, including those containing words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "should," "expect," "believe," "intend" and similar expressions, are intended to identify "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of
Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). These forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time and on management's good faith belief with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements. In particular, there can be no assurance that the Offering will be completed on the terms contemplated by the Registration Statement, if at all, that the Management Agreement will contain the terms described in the Registration Statement or that the Company will receive management fees or other economic benefits in connection with the Offering. Other important factors that could cause actual performance or results to differ from those expressed in forward-looking statements are described in the Registration Statement, the Company's filings with the SEC, including the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K or Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking statements.
