Eureka Financial Corp. Announces Earnings For The Three Months Ended December 31, 2012

Stocks in this article: EKFC

Eureka Financial Corp., (the “Company”), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the “Bank”), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced net income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 of $333,000, or $0.25 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $388,000, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in net income was primarily attributable to an increase in noninterest expense and, to a lesser extent, an increase in the provision for loan losses and a decrease in net interest income. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to increases in regular operational activities. The decrease in net interest income resulted from a decrease in interest income on investment securities that was partially offset by an increase in interest income on loans. The decrease in interest income on securities was primarily the result of called securities and lower rates available on investments available for purchase. The decrease in interest income was partially offset by a decrease in interest expense, primarily due to the low interest rate environment.

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol “EKFC.”
