Resource America, Inc. Reports Operating Results for the First Fiscal Quarter Ended December 31, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Resource America, Inc. (NASDAQ: REXI) (the "Company") reported adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, a non-GAAP measure, of $1.4 million, or $0.06 per common share-diluted, for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to an adjusted loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, of $2.6 million, or $0.13 per common share-diluted, for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011. A reconciliation of the Company's reported GAAP (loss) income from continuing operations before taxes to adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, a non-GAAP measure, is included as Schedule I to this release.

The Company reported a GAAP net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.4 million, or $0.07 per common share-diluted, for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $185,000, or $0.01 per common share-diluted, for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Jonathan Cohen, CEO and President, commented, "Resource America's first fiscal quarter that ended December 31, 2012 was a solid one that reflects our progress and makes us excited about our prospects. Compared to just a year ago, our assets under management have increased by $2.0 billion, from $13.3 billion to $15.3 billion. In the first fiscal quarter, Resource Capital Corp and Resource Real Estate Opportunity REIT collectively raised over $90.0 million in new capital, which builds those companies and provides us with substantial future management fees. CVC Credit Partners, our corporate credit joint venture, closed a $450.0 million CLO during the first fiscal quarter and another $400.0 million CLO in January 2013, growing that business which is a top performer in a booming industry. Our balance sheet remains solid, with substantial liquidity and little debt, and we are generating positive adjusted operating cash earnings. All of these are positive trends that we expect to build upon."

1. Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common
   shareholders, net of tax, presents the Company's operations without the
   effect of its commercial finance operations. The Company believes that
   this provides useful information to investors since it allows investors
   to evaluate the Company's progress in both its real estate and financial
   fund management segments for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and
   2011 separately from its commercial finance operations. Adjusted income
   (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders,
   net of tax, should not be considered as an alternative to (loss) income
   from continuing operations before taxes (computed in accordance with
   GAAP). Instead, adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations
   attributable to common shareholders, net of tax, should be reviewed in
   connection with (loss) income from continuing operations before taxes in
   the Company's consolidated financial statements, to help analyze how the
   Company's business is performing.

2. Income tax provision (benefit) is calculated using the Company's tax rate
   for the period, excluding one-time tax adjustments.

3. Dilutive shares used in the calculation of adjusted income from
   continuing operations attributable to common shareholders per common
   share-diluted includes an additional 1.1 million shares for the three
   months ended December 31, 2012, which were antidilutive for the period
   and, as such, were not used in the calculation of GAAP loss from
   continuing operations attributable to common shareholders per common
   share-diluted.
