Riverview Bancorp Earns $1.1 Million In Second Fiscal Quarter

VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. ("Riverview" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RVSB), the parent company of Riverview Community Bank ("Bank"), today reported that net income increased to $1.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $202,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second fiscal quarter a year ago. For the first six months of fiscal 2011 net income increased to $2.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $545,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first six months of fiscal 2010.

"Riverview's second quarter was highlighted by a successful capital raise and continued strong operating performance," said Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. "We posted profits for the second consecutive quarter and have continued to see meaningful improvements throughout the Bank during the first half of fiscal 2011. While credit costs remained elevated, we are seeing signs of a return to normalcy from an operating perspective."

Common Stock Offering

During the second fiscal quarter, the Company successfully raised $18.9 million in net proceeds through an underwritten public offering. The Company issued 11.5 million shares of its common stock, including 1.5 million shares pursuant to the underwriter's over-allotment option. "The successful completion of this offering increased our already-strong capital and liquidity levels and further enhanced the Bank's ability to respond to the banking needs in our communities," added Sheaffer. "To help in accomplishing our goals, we have also hired additional talented and experienced bankers. Together with our existing team, we are looking for opportunities to attract new customers and grow our existing franchise."
