Item 2.02           Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On May 4, 2010, Two Harbors Investment Corp. (“Two Harbors”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2010. A copy of the press release, and a presentation providing further information, are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude net gains on sales of securities of approximately $1.2 million, unrealized losses on interest rate swaps of approximately $0.7 million, net of tax, and gains on other derivative instruments of approximately $0.9 million, to arrive at “Core Earnings.”

Management uses Core Earnings to evaluate results of the business. We believe that analyzing the trends of the underlying business is aided by use of Core Earnings due to the significant impact this measure has on comparability from period to period.  The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

The information in this report, including the exhibit hereto, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. The information in this report, including the exhibit hereto, shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing of the registrant with the Securities and Exchange Commission, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filings (unless the registrant specifically states that the information or exhibit in this particular report is incorporated by reference).
