LOS ANGELES, CA – May 10, 2005

Total loans held for investment increased to $2.9 billion, the Company declared a $0.27 per share dividend for the quarter and diluted net loss per share equaled $0.01.

First Quarter Highlights


  Loans held for investment in the REIT portfolio increased by 66% over December 31, 2004 to $2.9 billion;


  The Company generated a 4.6% net interest margin on average loans;


  Total REIT portfolio delinquencies equaled 1.1%;


  Total mortgage loan production of $1.4 billion, of which 62% was wholesale and 38% retail.


Mr. A. Jay Meyerson, Chairman and CEO of Aames, commented, “Our results for the first quarter of 2005 demonstrate our ability to successfully execute our strategy as a mortgage REIT. We continued to build our mortgage portfolio through the origination of loans that meet our underwriting standards and our yield requirements. Pursuing a portfolio strategy enables Aames to produce more stable and predictable earnings and a dividend stream that is less sensitive to quarterly changes in production compared to a reliance on one-time gains produced through whole-loan sales”


Meyerson continued, “In addition, we have begun to see the benefits from our efficiency initiatives and are making solid progress in achieving our long-term cost cutting goals while maintaining a sound production platform. We continue to review our product offering and pricing to assure that we remain competitive. We will not, however, focus simply on lending volume, but will manage to maximize the returns on and quality of our loan portfolio.”
