Roma Financial Corporation Declares Dividend

Additionally, on the same day, Roma Financial Corporation announced a program to repurchase 5% of its then outstanding stock, equivalent to 360,680 shares.

Inverso, President and CEO.

"It remains the current intention of the Board to continue to pay a dividend quarterly. However, the payment and amount of future dividends will be predicated on the Board's assessment of the Company's financial condition, earnings and capital requirements, and any regulatory actions," he concluded.
