Magyar Bancorp, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magyar Bancorp (Nasdaq: MGYR) (the "Company"), parent company of Magyar Bank, reported today the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2011.

The Company reported net income of $19,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared to net income of $3.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Net loss for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 was $211,000 compared to net income of $3.8 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The prior year three- and nine-month periods included a $3.4 million and $3.8 million tax benefit due to the reversal of a portion of a valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax asset.

The Company earned $0.003 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and lost $0.04 per share for the nine months ended June 30, 2011. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2010, earnings per share were $0.61 and $0.66, respectively.

"Our third quarter results continued to be affected by the weak housing market," stated John S. Fitzgerald, President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, "Updated appraisals received on non-performing loans and other real estate owned, which are completed at least annually, continue to reflect depreciation in real estate values, resulting in additional charge-offs on impaired loans of $363,000 and losses on other real estate owned of $132,000 during the quarter. However, we were able to offset these losses with improvement in the Bank's core earnings via a higher net interest margin and lower non-interest expenses. I expect the actions taken over the past 18 months to continue positioning the Bank for higher earnings in the future."
