CMS Bancorp, Inc. Announces December 31, 2010 Quarterly Financial Results

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CMS Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:CMSB) (the "Company"), the parent of Community Mutual Savings Bank (the "Bank"), announced results for the three months ended December 31, which reflect net income of $90,000, or $.05 per share, in 2010, compared to net income of $102,000, or $0.06 per share, in 2009.

President and CEO John Ritacco stated that "we continue to see improved core earnings and a better control of our costs. While net income marginally declined in the three months ended December 31, 2010, compared to 2009, net interest income after the provision for loan losses rose by $84,000, non-interest income exclusive of security gains rose by $47,000 and non-interest expense rose slightly by $33,000."

Commenting on the increase in net interest income, Mr. Ritacco reported that "the historical low interest rates have continued to drive high levels of early repayments in our one-to-four-family mortgage portfolio, with early repayments totaling $8.6 million in the three months ended December 31, 2010 versus $763,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2009. Despite the early repayment trend, our loan portfolio declined modestly by $648,000, or 0.4% during the three months ended December 31, 2010 due primarily to the Bank's continued diversification into higher yielding commercial, multi-family, non-residential and construction loans. Our non-interest income continues to improve as the Bank looks to sell its one-to-four family loan originations into the secondary market while continuing to control non-interest expense."

Mr. Ritacco also reported that "the Company's liquidity position remained strong at December 31, 2010, with $58.0 million of cash, cash equivalents and securities available for sale."

The Company reported that the allowance for loan losses as of December 31, 2010 was $1,139,000, up from $809,000 a year ago representing 0.63% and 0.46% of loans outstanding, respectively. Commenting on these results, Stephen E. Dowd, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated that "despite a weak national economy and its effect in our primary market area, the Bank did not experience any significant shift in the loan portfolio, loss experience, or other factors affecting the Bank, other than the planned growth in commercial and commercial real estate loans and the decline in one-to-four-family mortgage loan balances. Since December 31, 2009, we increased the allowance for loan losses by $331,000, due, in part, to economic trends, the continued high unemployment, pressure on local real estate values, commercial loan additions to the non-residential loan portfolio and a modest increase in our portfolio delinquencies."
