Ready Capital Prepares for Merger with Anworth

Ready Capital Corporation said Wednesday its shareholders approved the issuance of the company’s common stock in connection with the merger agreement with Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation.

In the all-stock merger agreement, which was announced in December and is expected to close on Friday, Midtown Manhattan-based Ready Capital will acquire Santa Monica, CA-based Anworth through Anworth’s merger with and into a wholly owned subsidiary of Ready Capital.

The merger is expected to create a commercial mortgage REIT with a combined capital base exceeding $1 billion. “The combined company will be in a more formidable position to execute its business plan, improve operating and cost efficiencies, and continue growth in a prudent and profitable manner,” Ready Capital CEO Thomas Capasse said in December.

Capasse will lead the company, headquartered in New York. Ready Capital executives Jack Ross, Thomas Buttacavoli, Andrew Ahlborn and Gary Taylor will remain in their current roles.
