Annaly Capital Management, Inc. Announces Completion of Management Internalization and Senior Leadership Changes

Glenn A. Votek to Retire as Senior Advisor and Remain a Director

Steven F. Campbell Appointed Chief Operating Officer

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NYSE: ) (“Annaly” or the “Company”) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of its external manager, Annaly Management Company LLC (the “Manager”), finalizing its transition from an externally-managed REIT to an internally-managed REIT (the “Internalization”). The Company acquired the equity interests of the Manager and its affiliates for a nominal cash purchase price ($1.00) and acquired all assets and liabilities of the Manager, which were immaterial. Pursuant to the Internalization Agreement, dated as of February 12, 2020, the Company did not pay any termination fees that would otherwise be payable in connection with the termination of the Management Agreement.

Following the closing of the Internalization, Glenn A. Votek will retire from his role as Senior Advisor on August 31, 2020, but will continue to serve as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors. Mr. Votek joined Annaly in 2013 and previously served as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and Interim Chief Executive Officer. Additionally, effective immediately, Steven F. Campbell was appointed as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Campbell joined the Company in April 2015 and was most recently serving as the Head of Business Operations where he worked across all business teams and functions to ensure smooth operations of investment processes and execution of corporate initiatives. As Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Campbell will work closely with the executive team to help oversee Annaly’s overall operations and risk management function.

Both Glenn and Steve have been instrumental to the Company’s continued growth and transformation in recent years, and the Company will benefit immensely from Steve’s new role as Chief Operating Officer and Glenn’s continuing service on our Board as we embark on being an internalized company.”
