Tower Financial Corporation Announces Stock Repurchase Program

FORT WAYNE, Ind., Dec. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tower Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:TOFC) announced today that its board of directors has authorized the repurchase of up to two-hundred fifty thousand (250,000) shares of the Company's common stock, either through open market purchases in accordance with the requirements of Rule 10b‑18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or in privately negotiated block purchases if and to the extent the Company becomes aware that individual blocks of shares are available for repurchase.

"We believe this presents a good opportunity to enhance our shareholders financial position," stated Michael D. Cahill, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Especially in light of our current capital position, and the current trading price of our shares, which is at a discount to our book value, and the anticipation of continuing to significantly build our capital in the upcoming year."


Headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Tower Financial Corporation is a financial services holding company with one subsidiary; Tower Bank & Trust Company (Tower Bank), a community bank headquartered in Fort Wayne. Tower Bank provides a wide variety of financial services to businesses and consumers through its six full-service financial centers in Fort Wayne, and one in Warsaw, Indiana.
