AVENEL, N.J., July 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northfield Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NFBK), the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.10 and $0.18 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, as compared to $0.05 and $0.11 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively.

Commenting on the second quarter results, John W. Alexander, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer noted, "We continue to focus on producing solid earnings by effectively deploying capital, prudently growing loans, and managing risk to protect and generate returns to our stockholders. Our capital continues to significantly exceed that required to be considered "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes, despite the lingering effects of this difficult economic cycle, and weak loan demand. Although we continue to experience elevated levels of loan delinquencies, our underwriting and focus on real estate lending in our marketplace have resulted in a relatively low level of net charge-offs. We continue to be proactive in resolving troubled loans, and are working to maximize collectibility while we work with those borrowers who have a desire to meet their obligations."
