BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AGNC Investment Corp. (Nasdaq: AGNC) ("AGNC" or the "Company") announced today that it has established an "at the market" equity offering program under which the Company may offer and sell, from time-to-time, up to $750,000,000 aggregate offering price of shares of its common stock through "at the market" transactions through Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as sales agents (the "ATM Facility"). As of the date of this press release, the ATM Facility has not been utilized, and no shares have been sold under the ATM Facility.

The Company has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus and a related prospectus supplement) with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the offering of shares of common stock described in this press release. Prior to investing, prospective investors should read the prospectus in that registration statement, the related prospectus supplement and other documents the Company has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the Company and this offering.
