(3) Common stock book value is calculated as total stockholders' equity of $671.5 million less preferred stock equity of $223.8 million at December 31, 2017.

Book value includes $14.2 million of unamortized discount resulting from the value of the conversion option on RSO's convertible senior notes, of which $13.3 million relates to the 4.50% convertible senior notes due 2022 ("4.50% Convertible Senior Notes"). The convertible senior notes' discounts will be amortized into interest expense over the remaining life of each note issuance.

Litigation

  • On February 5, 2018, RSO entered into a settlement agreement with the plaintiff in the Levin v. Resource Capital Corp. securities class action litigation, under which all claims of the plaintiff class would be released in exchange for settlement consideration of $9.5 million, excluding legal fees, substantially all of which would be funded by insurance proceeds. Consummation of the settlement is subject to various customary conditions that are not guaranteed to occur, including court approval.

  • On February 23, 2018, the consolidated complaint in the In Re Resource Capital Corp. Shareholder Derivative Litigation Demand Refused Actions, which consolidates three shareholder derivative suits against certain current and former officers and directors, was dismissed, but remains subject to the plaintiffs' appeal rights.

SCHEDULE I

RESOURCE CAPITAL CORP. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP NET INCOME (LOSS) TO CORE EARNINGS
(unaudited)

RSO uses Core Earnings as a non-GAAP financial measure to evaluate its operating performance. RSO previously used Adjusted Funds from Operations as a non-GAAP measure of operating performance.

Core Earnings exclude the effects of certain transactions and GAAP adjustments that RSO believes are not indicative of its current CRE loan portfolio and other CRE-related investments and operations. Core Earnings exclude income (loss) from all non-core assets, such as Commercial Finance, Middle Market Lending, Residential Mortgage Lending, certain legacy CRE loans and other non-CRE assets designated as assets held for sale at the initial measurement date.(1)

Core Earnings, for reporting purposes, is defined as GAAP net income (loss) allocable to common shareholders, excluding (i) non-cash equity compensation expense, (ii) unrealized gains and losses, (iii) non-cash provisions for loan losses, (iv) non-cash impairments on securities, (v) non-cash amortization of discounts or premiums associated with borrowings, (vi) net income or loss from a limited partnership interest owned at the initial measurement date, (vii) net income or loss from non-core assets,(2) (3) (viii) real estate depreciation and amortization, (ix) foreign currency gains or losses and (x) income or loss from discontinued operations. Core Earnings may also be adjusted periodically to exclude certain one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and certain non-cash items.

Although pursuant to the Third Amended and Restated Management Agreement RSO calculates incentive compensation using Core Earnings excluding incentive fees payable to the Manager, beginning with the three months and year ended December 31, 2017 RSO includes incentive fees payable to the Manager in Core Earnings for reporting purposes.

Core Earnings does not represent net income or cash generated from operating activities and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income or as a measure of liquidity under GAAP. RSO's methodology for calculating Core Earnings may differ from methodologies used by other companies to calculate similar supplemental performance measures, and, accordingly, its reported Core Earnings may not be comparable to similar performance measures used by other companies.

The following table provides a reconciliation from GAAP net (loss) income allocable to common shares to Core Earnings allocable to common shares for the periods presented (in thousands, except per share data):

STRATEGIC PLAN UPDATE

In November 2016, RSO's board of directors approved the Plan, pursuant to which RSO is primarily focused on making CRE debt investments. The Plan includes disposing of certain non-core businesses and investments and underperforming legacy CRE loans ("Identified Assets"), as well as maintaining a dividend policy based on sustainable earnings.
