NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance, Inc. (the "Company" or "ARI") (NYSE: ARI), today announced the Company has commenced a public offering of $100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Notes") pursuant to a reopening of its existing series of such Notes. The Company also plans to grant to the underwriters the option to purchase, within a period of 13 days beginning on, and including, the date the Notes are first issued, up to an additional $15,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes at the public offering price, less the underwriting discount, plus accrued interest.

The Notes will bear interest at a rate equal to 5.50% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning on September 15, 2014.

Upon conversion, the Company will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of the Company's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of common stock, at its election. The Notes will mature on March 15, 2019.

ARI intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay amounts outstanding under the Company's repurchase facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and, to the extent not used therefor, to acquire the Company's target assets, which include commercial first mortgage loans, subordinate financings, commercial mortgage-backed securities and other commercial real estate-related debt investments, and for general corporate purposes.
