2011 DIVIDEND TAX INFORMATION

Two Harbors Investment Corp. has elected to be treated as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, for U.S. federal income tax purposes and pays out dividends periodically. Because Two Harbors is a REIT, dividends declared in the last month of a calendar year with a record date in that calendar year, but which are payable in January of the following year, are considered paid for Form 1099 reporting purposes on the record date, not on the payable date, to the extent the REIT has any remaining undistributed earnings and profits (as computed for income tax purposes) as of December 31 of that calendar year.

Shareholders should review the 2011 tax statements received from their brokerage firms or other institutions to ensure that the statements agree to the information set forth below.

As each stockholder’s tax situation may be different and each dividend distribution may have its own separate tax status, stockholders should consult with their tax advisor as to the appropriate treatment.
