Hampden Bancorp, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Results And Declares Cash Dividend

Hampden Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ - HBNK), which is the holding company for Hampden Bank (the “Bank”), announced the results of operations for the three and six months ended December 31, 2010.

The Company had net income for the three months ended December 31, 2010 of $491,000, or $0.08 per basic and fully diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $670,000, or $(0.10) per basic and fully diluted share, for the same period in 2009. The increase in net income was due principally to a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $1.5 million, or 83.3%. Also, for the three month period ended December 31, 2010, interest expense decreased by $558,000 compared to the three month period ended December 31, 2009. This decrease in interest expense was due to a decrease in deposit interest expense of $400,000 and a decrease in borrowing interest expense of $158,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2009. An offset to this was a decrease in interest and dividend income, including fees, of $516,000, or 7.4%, for the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2009. This decrease in interest income was mainly due to a decrease in debt securities income of $276,000 and a decrease in loan income of $247,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2009.

The Company had net income for the six months ended December 31, 2010 of $1.0 million, or $0.16 per basic and fully diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $832,000, or $(0.13) per basic and fully diluted share, for the same period in 2009. The reason for the increase in net income was due to a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $2.0 million, or 77.3%, for the six months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the six months ended December 31, 2009. Also, for the six month period ended December 31, 2010, interest expense decreased by $1.1 million compared to the six month period ended December 31, 2009. This decrease in interest expense was due to a decrease in deposit interest expense of $740,000 and a decrease in borrowing interest expense of $318,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the six months ended December 31, 2009. A partial offset to this was a decrease in interest and dividend income, including fees, of $772,000, or 5.6%, for the six months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the six months ended December 31, 2009. This decrease in interest income was mainly due to a decrease in debt securities income of $554,000 and a decrease in loan income of $228,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the six months ended December 31, 2009.
