On November 20, 2017, ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc. (“ARMOUR”) and ARMOUR Capital Management LP, the external manager of ARMOUR (the “Manager”), further amended and restated the management agreement between ARMOUR and the Manager (as further amended and restated, the “Sixth Amended and Restated Management Agreement”).

The Sixth Amended and Restated Management Agreement primarily:

Extends the base term of the management agreement by two (2) additional years from June 18, 2022, the expiration date of the current term of the management agreement, to June 18, 2024. The termination and extension procedures in the management agreement remain unchanged; and

Redefines the “Termination Fee” to be “an amount equal to four (4) times the Base Management Fee paid to the Manager in the preceding full twelve (12) months, calculated as of the effective date of the termination of this Agreement.” Previously, the Termination Fee was equal to the greater of (a) the Base Management Fee for the remaining term of the management agreement and (b) three (3) times the Base Management Fee paid to the Manager in the preceding full twelve (12) months.

A copy of the Sixth Amended and Restated Management Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the material terms of the Sixth Amended and Restated Management Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
