Magyar Bancorp, Inc. Announces First Quarter Financial Results

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magyar Bancorp (Nasdaq: MGYR) ("Company"), parent company of Magyar Bank, reported today the results of its operations for the three months ended December 31, 2010.

The Company reported net income of $127,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010, compared to net income of $21,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2009.  

Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.022 for the three months ended December 31, 2010, compared with basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.004 for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

"The positive earnings momentum from 2010 continued in our first quarter of 2011 despite continued headwinds from the low interest rate environment and current economic conditions," stated John Fitzgerald, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Interest rates remained at historically low levels for commercial loans and residential mortgages throughout the quarter prompting an increase in prepayments and refinancing activity which impacted our net interest margin.

"We made significant progress in reducing our construction loan portfolio during the quarter to $44.2 million or 11.1% of total loans.  As a result of the positive earnings and reduction in the higher risk-weighted construction loan portfolio, the capital ratios for Magyar Bank increased again this quarter.  Magyar Bank's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio as of December 31, 2010 was 7.88%, while the Total Risk Based Ratio was 12.96%.

"While total non-performing loans did show a slight increase for the quarter, we expect to see this level trend downward during fiscal year 2011 as we see further stability in the loan portfolio and continued progress on disposing of property held as real estate owned.  In our first quarter, we successfully disposed of two properties held as other real estate owned totaling $383,000, and we entered into a contract to sell a condominium project carried at $2.9 million. As of December 31, 2010 the Company had contracts of sale or was negotiating contracts of sale on nine properties with a carrying value of $6.7 million."
