SOLON, Ohio, March 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PVF Capital Corp. (Nasdaq:PVFC) (the "Company") announced today a change in the liquidity position and improvement in the tier 1 core capital ratio of its banking subsidiary, Park View Federal Savings Bank (the "Bank"), as a result of the maturity of a $50 million repurchase agreement, which the Bank entered into in March 2006. The borrowing, which matured March 21, 2011, carried an interest rate of 4.99% and was settled by using a portion of the Bank's short-term cash and cash equivalents position, which totaled $131 million at December 31, 2010.

As a result of this maturity transaction, the Company's total assets, which were $830.6 million at December 31, 2010, are expected to decline by approximately 6.0%. The Bank's tier 1 core capital ratio, which totaled 8.84% at December 31, 2010, is expected to improve by approximately 50 basis points as a result of the smaller balance sheet.
