Carlyle Capital Corporation Limited Issues Update on Its Liquidity
New York, NY – Carlyle Capital Corporation Limited (Euronext Amsterdam ticker
symbol: CCC; ISIN: GG00B1VYV826) (the "Company") today announced that since
filing its annual report on February 28, 2008, the Company has been subject to margin
calls and additional collateral requirements totaling more than $60 million. Until March
5, the Company had met all of the margin requirements imposed by its repo
counterparties. However, on March 5, the Company received additional margin calls
from seven of its 13 repo counterparties totaling more than $37 million. The Company
has met margin calls from three of these financing counterparties that have indicated a
willingness to work with the Company during these tumultuous times, but did not meet
the margin requirements of the four other repo financing counterparties. From this
group of four counterparties, one notice of default has been received by the Company
and management expects to receive at least one additional default notice.
John Stomber, Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Investment Officer of the
Company, said, “The last few days have created a market environment where the repo
counterparties’ margin prices for our AAA-rated U.S. government agency floating rate
capped securities issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not representative of the
underlying recoverable value of these securities. Unfortunately, this disconnect has
created instability and variability in our repo financing arrangements. Management is
actively working with the Company’s repo counterparties to develop more stable
financing terms.”
Since the liquidity crisis in global fixed income markets started in August, the Company
has sold almost $1 billion in non-RMBS assets to improve liquidity and reduce
leverage. The Company has also received significant support from The Carlyle Group,
most notably in the form of a $150 million subordinated revolving credit line.
