PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prudential Bancorp, Inc. of Pennsylvania (the "Company") (Nasdaq:PBIP), the "mid-tier" holding company for Prudential Savings Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $1.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 as compared to a net loss of $226,000, or $(0.02) per share, for the same period in 2009. For the nine months ended June 30, 2010, the Company recognized net income of $2.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $(0.12) per share, for the comparable period in 2009. The improved results of operations for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2010 reflected the effect of significantly reduced non-cash other than temporary impairment ("OTTI") charges in the 2010 periods as compared to the 2009 periods with respect to certain of the non-agency mortgage-backed securities received as a result of the redemption in kind during fiscal 2008 of the Company's investment in a mutual fund. Also contributing to the improved results were reductions in the deferred tax asset valuation reserve, which reduced income tax expense incurred in the 2010 periods.
