(NYSE: AI) ("Arlington" or the "Company") has become aware of several third parties erroneously reporting the recent dividend announcement of Atrium Mortgage Investment Corporation, a Canadian non-bank lender traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: AI) ("Atrium") as an Arlington dividend.  Arlington has no affiliation with Atrium, and was just recently made aware of these errors.
