Ameriana Bancorp Reports a Revision to Earnings for the Three-Month and Six-Month Periods Ended June 30, 2015

NEW CASTLE, Ind.--()--Ameriana Bancorp (NASDAQ: ASBI), parent company for Ameriana Bank, today announced that earnings for the second quarter of 2015 previously reported as $278,000, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, have been revised to $188,000, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share. Earnings for the six month period ended June 30, 2015 have been revised from the previously reported $780,000, or $0.26 per basic and diluted share to $690,000, or $0.23 per basic and diluted share.

The revised financial results reflect increases in income tax expense for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2015, to $117,000 and $274,000, respectively. The increase in income tax expense of $90,000 for each period was due to the non-deductible nature of a portion of the merger-related expenses incurred by the Company in the second quarter of 2015.
