Atlantic Coast Federal Corporation Announces Filing Of Registration Statement

Atlantic Coast Federal Corporation (NASDAQ:ACFC), the holding company of Atlantic Coast Bank (the "Bank"), today announced that Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation, a Maryland corporation and the proposed new holding company of the Bank (the "Company"), filed a registration statement on June 18, 2010, with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the previously announced mutual-to-stock conversion of Atlantic Coast Federal, MHC.

In connection with the conversion, the Company expects to offer for sale between 2,040,000 and 2,760,000 shares of common stock (subject to a 15% increase to 3,174,000 shares) at a purchase price of $10.00 per share in the conversion offering. The shares to be offered for sale represent 65.1% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Atlantic Coast Federal Corporation currently owned by Atlantic Coast Federal, MHC. In addition, at the conclusion of the conversion, the existing shares of common stock held by the public stockholders of Atlantic Coast Federal Corporation will be exchanged for new shares of common stock of the Company at an exchange ratio estimated to be between 0.2337 and 0.3162 (subject to a 15% increase to 0.3636).

The shares of the Company will be offered and sold to the following persons in the following order of priority in the conversion offering: (1) depositors of the Bank as of March 31, 2009; (2) the Bank's employee stock ownership plan and 401(k) Plan; (3) depositors as of the end of the calendar quarter preceding the commencement of the offering; and (4) depositors of the Bank entitled to vote on the conversion proposal. Shares of common stock not purchased in the subscription offering may be offered for sale to the general public in a "community offering," with a preference given first to natural persons residing in the Georgia counties of Chatham, Coffee and Ware and the Florida counties of Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau and St. John's, and then to public stockholders of Atlantic Coast Federal Corporation. The Company also may offer shares not subscribed for in the subscription or community offerings in a syndicated community offering through a syndicate of selected dealers.
