Camco Financial Announces Third Quarter Results, Adjusted Second Quarter Financials

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Oct. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camco Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:CAFI), the financial services holding company for Advantage Bank, announced third quarter financial results and adjusted second quarter financial results. Third quarter results ($11.6 million loss), and the revised second quarter results ($4.1 million loss) reflect a deterioration in the underlying collateral value of certain commercial and residential credits driven by the weak real estate market. The Company's year-to-date loss through September 30, 2010 is $15.6 million ($2.16 per share). The Company previously disclosed that it would be restating its second quarter financials in a Form 8-K that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 27, 2010.

"While it is difficult to share this news, it is important to realize that we are not immune to the continued tough economic conditions and we are being upfront about the challenges we are facing," said James E. Huston, President and CEO. "This is part of the process of weathering the financial storms that we have all experienced over the last several years. We believe this difficult step will provide the necessary and critical foundation going forward."

"For example, our loan volume during third quarter 2010 was among the best quarters we have experienced since the beginning of the recession. We had $32 million in residential originations as of the end of third quarter, representing a 60 percent increase over second quarter and a 79 percent increase over the same quarter 2009," stated Mr. Huston.

Huston continued, "Lower mortgage rates have led to strong mortgage origination volume and increased gain on sale margins. In addition to traditional refinances, we have seen growth in this category based on specialty Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac refinance programs that assist borrowers who have experienced a decrease in their home equity."
