In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

Terra Firma Capital Corporation Reports Q3 2012 Results
Revenue and Net Income Continue to Grow at a Significant Pace as Loan Origination Increases

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 --

All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars.

Terra Firma Capital Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TII) ("Terra Firma" or the "Company"), a real estate finance company, today announced that income from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased by 334% to $755,605, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, from $174,019, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the comparative period in 2011. Interest income grew 441% to $3,258,720 year to date in 2012 from $602,241 in the year earlier period.

Income from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 grew by 181% to $290,154, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, from $103,160, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the comparative period in 2011. Interest income grew 399% to $1,234,250 for the last quarter in 2012 from $247,125 in the year earlier period.

The substantial growth in Terra Firma's revenues and income from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the year earlier periods was driven primarily by a substantial increase in mortgage and loan investments originated and funded over the past twelve months. The Company's loan portfolio increased to $32.1 million (with a weighted average effective interest rate of 20.2%) as at September 30, 2012 versus $16.7 million and $14.2 million as at December 31, 2011 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Interest expense was higher for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the year earlier periods, as a result of the issuance of $10.1 million of 3-year, 7% convertible debentures in September of 2011 and an increase in the syndicated portion of the Company's loan portfolio to $14.0 million as at September 30, 2012 from $4.8 million and $0.85 million as at December 31 2011 and September 30, 2011, respectively. These funding sources were used to leverage the Company's shareholders' equity to fuel the growth of its loan portfolio and increase the return on its net investment, while limiting its overall portfolio risk profile.

"We are very pleased with our 2012 third quarter and year to date results," commented Mr. Y. Dov Meyer, Terra Firma's CEO and President. "We continue to forge new and strengthen existing relationships with experienced real estate owners and complementary co-lenders - the drivers of growth, sustainability and quality of our loan portfolio."

"We are well positioned to continue the origination of quality real estate lending transactions and growth in revenue and earnings in the final quarter of 2012 and beyond," said Mr. Meyer.

2012 Third Quarter Operational Highlights:

--  During the three months ended September 30, 2012 Terra Firma completed
    two new loan investments totaling $5.7 million on projects in Toronto
    and Ottawa. These investments were funded through the repayment of loans
    at maturity providing net proceeds of $1.7, from the Company's
    syndication in the quarter providing cash proceeds of $2.1 and cash on
--  On September 20, 2012 the Company's Manager exercised its right and
    notified the Company of its intention to terminate its Management
    Agreement effective the close of business on December 31, 2012. 

The Company's Management's Discussion & Analysis and Financial Statements as at and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 have been filed and are available on SEDAR (
