MILLINGTON, N.J., Aug. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSB Financial Corp. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:MSBF) reported net income for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 of $806,000 or $0.16 per diluted common share, compared to a net income of $212,000 or $0.04 per diluted share for the year ended June 30, 2009. The $594,000 increase in net income for fiscal year 2010 as compared to fiscal year 2009 was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.9 million in net interest income, which was partially offset by increases in the provision for loan loss and non-interest and income tax expenses.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, the Company had net income of $174,000 as compared to a net loss of $208,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2009. The $382,000 increase was primarily attributable to an increase of $503,000 in net interest income, in addition to a decrease of $85,000 in the provision for loan loss, which were partially offset by an increase of $226,000 in income tax expense.
Net interest income for fiscal year 2010 was up $1.9 million or 22.2% to $10.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2010 as compared to $8.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2009. The increase resulted from a decrease in interest expense of $1.6 million due mainly to an 85 basis point decrease in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities, partially offset by a $34.3 million increase in the average balance of such liabilities. Interest income for the year ended June 30, 2010 increased by $314,000 or 1.9%, primarily due to an average balance increase of $28.2 million in interest earning assets, offset in part by a 36 basis point decrease in the average yield earned on interest earning assets. The interest rate spread for fiscal 2010 was 3.03%, compared to 2.54% for fiscal 2009. Net interest income increased $503,000 or 22.1%, for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2009, primarily due to a decrease of 69 basis points in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities, partially offset by a $13.0 million increase in average interest-bearing liability balances, resulting in a $448,000 or 25.2% decrease in interest paid on interest-bearing liabilities. Interest income on interest earning assets increased $55,000 or 1.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2009 primarily due to an increase of $7.7 million in average earning asset balances tempered by a 5 basis point reduction in the average yield thereon.
