Newport Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NFSB), the holding company for Newport Federal Savings Bank (the “Bank”), today announced third quarter earnings for 2011. For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $278,000, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net income of $411,000, or $0.12 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $1.0 million, or $0.31 per basic share and $0.30 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

During the first nine months of 2011, the Company’s assets increased by $8.9 million, or 2.0%, to $458.6 million.
