Meetinghouse Bancorp, Inc. Completes Initial Public Offering; Meetinghouse Bank Reports Unaudited Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

Meetinghouse Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), the stock holding company for Meetinghouse Bank (the “Bank”), announced that effective today it has completed its initial public offering in connection with the Bank’s mutual-to-stock conversion transaction. The shares of the Company’s common stock are scheduled to be quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol “MTGB” beginning November 20, 2012. Stock certificates will be mailed on or about November 19, 2012.

The Company sold a total of 661,250 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $10.00 per share in the subscription offering, of which 27,700 shares were purchased by the Bank’s employee stock ownership plan (the “ESOP”). The ESOP was eligible to purchase up to 46,287 shares but was unable to do so because of the volume of subscription orders submitted by the Bank’s eligible account holders and supplemental eligible account holders, each of whom were accorded higher priority subscription rights than the ESOP. The ESOP intends to acquire up to an additional 18,587 shares in the open market subject to market conditions.

Anthony A. Paciulli, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our Board of Directors and employees deeply appreciate the confidence that so many of our long-time depositors have shown in us by participating in the stock offering. We are committed to enhancing shareholder value by operating a strong community bank dedicated to serving the financial needs of our local community and customers.”

The subscription offering was managed by Keefe, Bruyette, & Woods, Inc. Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP acted as special legal counsel to both the Company and the Bank.

The Bank also reported the following unaudited consolidated financial results at and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012:
