First Federal MHC Makes Definitive Announcement On Kentucky First Federal Bancorp Dividend Waiver

HAZARD, Ky. and FRANKFORT, Ky., Sept. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kentucky First Federal Bancorp (Nasdaq:KFFB), the holding company for First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Hazard, Kentucky and First Federal Savings Bank of Frankfort, Kentucky, announced that its majority shareholder, First Federal MHC, has received notice from the Federal Reserve that there would be no objection to a waiver of dividends paid by Kentucky First Federal in the next twelve months. On August 23, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share payable on September 28, 2012, to shareholders of record on September 10, 2012. Earlier that day, the members of First Federal MHC had approved the dividend waiver by casting 64.3% of the eligible votes in favor of the waiver. The results of the vote along with other pertinent materials and declarations were submitted to the Federal Reserve immediately for their final review.

Tony D. Whitaker, Chairman of Kentucky First Federal Bancorp, stated that to his knowledge this was the first solicitation of a member vote for a dividend waiver and will be the first waiver to which there was no regulatory objection since the publication of interim and final rule Reg MM in November of 2011.  He expressed his great appreciation to the members of First Federal MHC for their participation in the vote and to the Federal Reserve for their prompt attention which will allow the dividend on September 28, 2012 to be paid to the public shareholders but withheld from the MHC.

First Federal MHC owns 61.2% of the outstanding stock of Kentucky First Federal.  On August 23, 2012, Kentucky First Federal announced that the Board intends to resume the quarterly dividend schedule the Company has used since its inception with the next dividend record date being on or about October 31, 2012, with payment on or about November 19, 2012. However, future dividends are not guaranteed and are declared at the discretion of the Board.
