Brookline Bancorp, Inc. Announces Delay In Reporting Q3 Earnings

Brookline Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: BRKL) (the “Company”) announced today that it will delay its third quarter earnings release, expected to be reported today.

The release is being delayed to allow the Company additional time to finalize its results for the third quarter. In particular, the Company is reexamining certain booked entries that were made to correct differences between the Company’s underlying loan systems and the general ledger. The Company is engaged in a comprehensive review of its loan and general ledger technologies and its journal entries and its reconciliation processes to ensure the accuracy of its loan accounting systems and will announce third quarter earnings when this review is complete.

Paul A. Perrault, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brookline Bancorp, Inc., stated: “pending its completion, it is important to note that this review has not identified any information that would undermine the Company’s strong asset quality metrics, the reported value of its investment portfolio, or its favorable capital position. The Board of Directors took these factors into consideration in approving our regularly scheduled quarterly dividend at its meeting today.”

The Company announced the approval by the Board of Directors of a regular quarterly dividend of $0.085 per share payable on November 18, 2011 to stockholders of record on November 4, 2011.
