Brookline Bancorp Announces Strong 2011 Results

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as net earnings from operations, which reflects the reduction in certain professional service fees, tangible book value per common share and tangible stockholders’ equity to tangible assets. These non-GAAP financial measures provide information for investors to effectively analyze financial trends of ongoing business activities, and to enhance comparability with peers across the financial sector. A detailed reconciliation table of the Company's GAAP to the non-GAAP measures is attached.
