Eureka Financial Corp. Announces Financial Results for the Quarter and Year Ended September 30, 2012

PITTSBURGH--()--Eureka Financial Corp., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (the “Company”), the parent company for Eureka Bank (the “Bank”), today announced net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $331,000, or $0.27 diluted earnings per share, as compared to $353,000, or $0.28 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2011. For the year ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported net income of $1.5 million, or $1.17 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $1.03 diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011. The increased income for the year ended September 30, 2012 was primarily due to increases in net interest income and non-interest income partially offset by increased non-interest expense and a higher provision for loan losses.

President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Seserko stated, “The Company is pleased to report that fiscal 2012 was a very strong year despite the difficult economic environment. The Company continued to control deposit growth and reallocated $6.0 million from cash and investments to the loan portfolio, which increased by $8.0 million to $112.4 million from $104.5 million at September 30, 2011. This reallocation of funds increased our annualized yield on interest earning assets to 5.51% from 5.43% at September 30, 2011 and increased our net interest margin to 4.36% from 4.18% at September 30, 2011. At September 30, 2012, the Bank remains well capitalized with a core capital ratio of 14.85%, which exceeds regulatory requirements. Also, non-accruing loans, or loans over 90 days delinquent, consisted of only two loans totaling $660,000 at September 30, 2012 on a loan portfolio in excess of $112 million.”

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in the city of Pittsburgh. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol “EKFC.”
