HMN Financial, Inc. (HMN or the Company) (Nasdaq:HMNF) today announced the re-election of Karen Himle and the election of Allen Berning and Bernard Nigon as directors.

HMN also announced that its Board elected Dr. Hugh C. Smith as Board Chair. Dr. Smith will replace Timothy Geisler, who has reached board term limits after serving as an outside director of HMN since 1996 and as Chair since 2001.

Dr. Smith has served as an outside director of HMN since 2009. He was also elected Chair of the Board of Home Federal Savings Bank.

In recognizing the service of Mr. Geisler, Mr. Krehbiel, President of HMN and Home Federal Savings Bank, said “We would like to thank Tim for the superb guidance and insight he has provided as a director of HMN and the Bank for the past 15 years. We also thank him for his leadership as Chair of HMN during the past 10 years. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

The Company also announced that it has determined to defer the payment of the regular quarterly cash dividend on its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the “TARP Preferred Stock”) issued to the Treasury as part of the TARP Capital Purchase Program due May 15, 2011 in the amount of $325,000.

The Company intends to re-evaluate the deferral of these dividend payments periodically in consultation with the OTS taking into account the Company’s financial condition, applicable legal restrictions and other relevant factors.
