The results of the quarter were prepared using International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), with a transition date of November 1, 2011.

- Net income after tax of $8.3 million for both the 3 month and 9 month periods ended July 31, 2012.

- Basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.31 and $0.29 for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
- Basic book value per share of $2.26 as at July 31, 2012, increased from $1.96 as at April 30, 2012, primarily due to the above noted one-time gain. Diluted book value per share of $2.10 as at July 31, 2012.

In Q3, 2012, the Company sold $21.8 million of insured mortgages for a net gain of $0.4 million (compared to selling $15.4 million for a net gain of $0.2 million in Q3, 2011).

Management Comments on Results
Mr. Michael Jones, President and CEO, commented that "during the third quarter, we executed an early clean-up of XMT 2 trust as part of the Company's objective of winding down its legacy securitized mortgage portfolio."
"The XMT 2 clean-up call, resulted in a return of cash to the Company of $4.5 million, $3.1 million of which was used to repurchase existing mortgages from the trust. Additionally, D-note holders of XMT 2 were repaid approximately $4.4 million and E-note holders were repaid approximately $10.7 million using proceeds from the mortgages purchased by the Company and funds in the cash collateral account of the Trust," Mr. Jones commented.
"As a result of the conversion to IFRS effective November 1, 2010, the Company was required to consolidate the financial results of the trust including a deficit in the amount of $8.2 million that represented losses on E notes. It was always anticipated that the effect of this consolidation would be reversed at the point the trust was wound up with no economic effect on Xceed, either positive or negative.
The Company's basic book value per share was $2.26 as at July 31, 2012 compared with $1.96 as at April 30, 2012.
In its operations this quarter, the Company continued to expand its broker channel presence and experienced a slight upward trend in origination volumes," Mr. Jones noted.
The Company has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis on SEDAR and they will be posted on the company's website.
These filings provide additional details on the above noted items along with additional information regarding results for the quarter and cautions regarding forward-looking statements. The materials can be accessed at www.sedar.com or on the Company's website at www.xceedmortgage.com.
