Dividend Reinvestment Plan

Chimera’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (the “Administrator”), administers our Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “Plan”) for investors wishing to reinvest dividends in additional shares of our common stock.

The following persons are eligible to participate in the Plan:

Record Owners. All record owners (stockholders whose shares are held in their name on the records kept by our transfer agent: Computershare Trust Company, N.A.) of common stock are eligible to participate directly in this Plan.

Beneficial Owners. Beneficial owners (stockholders whose shares are held in the name of a broker, bank or other nominee on the records kept by our transfer agent) of common stock may participate in two ways. A beneficial owner may participate directly by becoming a record owner by having one or more shares transferred into his or her name from that of the applicable broker, bank or other nominee. Alternatively, a beneficial owner may seek to arrange with the broker, bank or other nominee that is the record owner of his or her shares to participate on the beneficial owner’s behalf.
