Rurban Financial Corp. Announces Termination Of 2011 Regulatory Consent Order

DEFIANCE, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rurban Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:RBNF) ("Rurban" or "RFC") announced today that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System informed Rurban, in a letter dated February 11, 2013 that it had terminated the regulatory consent order (the "Order") as of February 8, 2013 with respect to Rurban and its nonbank data services subsidiary, Rurbanc Data Services, Inc. ("RDSI"). The Order, which had been in effect since March 9, 2011, required that RDSI take actions to strengthen its financial condition and operations. Rurban's banking subsidiary, The State Bank and Trust Company ("State Bank") was not a party to the Order.

Mark Klein, President and CEO of Rurban Financial Corp., stated, "The removal of the regulatory order is the final milestone in the successful completion of RDSI's transition to a smaller, more focused provider of item processing and network services. Over the past two years, Rurban has redeployed its resources to enhance efficiencies and expand additional sources of revenue. As a result, Rurban has just completed the most profitable quarter in its history. The partnership we developed with our regulators, in addition to exceptional efforts on the part of our employees, combined to help us achieve this success. We believe that the disciplines acquired during this transition process will continue to enhance our performance going forward."
