Prudential Bancorp, Inc. Of Pennsylvania Announces First Quarter Results

Stockholders' equity decreased by $1.1 million to $55.9 million at December 31, 2010. The decrease reflected the payment of dividends totaling $482,000 combined with a $738,000 decrease in the unrealized gain on available for sale securities. The decrease in the amount of the unrealized gain reflected the decline in fair value of available for sale securities as a result of increases in market rates of interest as compared to September 30, 2010.

Net interest income decreased $346,000 or 8.7% to $3.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010 as compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2009. The decrease was due to an $813,000 or 12.6% decrease in interest income partially offset by a $467,000, or 18.8% decrease in interest expense. The decrease in interest income resulted from an 89 basis point decrease to 4.47% in the weighted average yield earned on interest-earning assets partially offset by a $23.8 million or 4.9% increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets for the three months ended December 31, 2010, as compared to the same period in 2009. The decrease in the weighted average yield earned was primarily due to the increased amount of cash and cash equivalents as the result of the receipt of the receipt of proceeds from the repayment of investment securities. The yield on cash and cash equivalents is less than the weighted average yield on the investment securities which repaid during the 2010 period. The decrease in interest expense resulted primarily from a 50 basis point decrease to 1.75% in the weighted average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities, reflecting the repricing downward of interest-bearing liabilities during the year, partially offset by a $19.8 million or 4.5% increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities, primarily in certificates of deposit, for the three months ended December 31, 2010, as compared to the same period in 2009. The decline in the weighted average rate paid reflected the continued effect of the low interest rate environment on the Bank's cost of funds as deposits, in particular, certificates of deposit, repriced downward.
