United Community Bancorp Announces Suspension Of Quarterly Cash Dividend Pending Completion Of Second Step Conversion

LAWRENCEBURG, Ind., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Community Bancorp (the "Company") (Nasdaq: UCBA) announced today that the Company's Board of Directors has voted to suspend the payment of the quarterly cash dividend on the Company's common stock as a result of the cost and uncertainty associated with United Community MHC's (the "MHC") ability to waive receipt of the Company's dividends.  Due to recent changes in federal regulations applicable to mutual holding companies relating to the waiver of dividends by parent mutual holding companies, the Board of Directors has determined to suspend the payment of any further cash dividends on the Company's common stock until after completion of the MHC's pending second step conversion, which the Company currently anticipates will be completed in the first calendar quarter of 2013.  In recognition that current shareholders will not be receiving dividends until the conversion is completed and the Company establishes a new policy of regular cash dividends, the Company, subject to regulatory approval, also intends to declare and pay a one-time special cash dividend following completion of the conversion.

United Community Bancorp is the holding company of United Community Bank, headquartered in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.  The Bank currently operates eight offices in Dearborn County and Ripley County, Indiana.
