NB&T Financial Group Announces Fourth Quarter Dividend

WILMINGTON, Ohio, Dec. 14, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NB&T Financial Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NBTF), parent company of The National Bank and Trust Company, Wilmington, Ohio, has declared a dividend of $.30 per share payable January 24, 2011 to shareholders as of record December 31, 2010. This dividend represents an increase of $0.01, or 3.4%, from the previous quarter's dividend and the dividend declared in December 2009. John J. Limbert, President and CEO, commented, "We have worked hard this year to increase shareholder value, and our earnings through the first three quarters of this year were well ahead of last year's results. This increase in dividend is our tangible way of sharing this value increase with our shareholders."

The Board of Directors also approved two additional expense items expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2010. First, National Bank and Trust expects to prepay a Federal Home Loan Bank borrowing originally due in September 2011. Secondly, National Bank and Trust intends to allocate the remaining shares in the employee stock ownership plan to participating employees in 2010. Originally, the last remaining allocation was expected to occur in 2011. These two expense items in total are currently expected to reduce this year's and the fourth quarter's pre-tax earnings between $600,000 and $700,000.

NB&T Financial had, as of September 30, 2010, total assets of $692 million, cash management accounts totaling $47 million, and trust assets with a market value of $165 million, resulting in a total of $904 million in assets under management, and currently operates 23 full service offices in seven Ohio counties.
