TOWNSHIP OF WASHINGTON, N.J., June 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oritani Financial Corp. -- a federal corporation ("Oritani Federal") (Nasdaq:ORIT), announced today that its stockholders and the depositors of Oritani Bank (the "Bank") each approved the plan of conversion pursuant to which Oritani Financial Corp., MHC will convert to a stock holding company form of organization and Oritani Financial Corp. -- a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), the proposed stock holding company for the Bank, will sell shares of its common stock.

Oritani Federal also announced that the Company expects to sell 41,363,214 shares of common stock at $10.00 per share, for gross offering proceeds of $413.6 million in the offering. Orders for a total of 13,936,932 shares of common stock have been accepted in the syndicated community offering, for which Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated acted as sole book-running manager and Sandler O'Neill & Partners, L.P. and Sterne, Agee & Leach, Inc. acted as co-managers.
