ROCKVILLE, Conn., May 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rockville Financial, Inc. ("Rockville Financial" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RCKB), the holding company for Rockville Bank (the "Bank"), today announced that it completed the remaining authorized repurchases under its first stock purchase program, which had approximately 342,000 shares available for repurchase when the Company announced the approval of a new program earlier this week.

The first stock buyback plan was initiated in March 2012 when the Company reached the one year anniversary of its March 3, 2011 stock conversion. Under this plan, the Company was authorized to repurchase up to 2,951,250 shares, or 10% of the outstanding shares at the time the plan was approved.

The average closing price of the Company's common stock over this time period was $12.35 per share, which was 109% of the Company's March 31, 2013 tangible book value of $11.38.

"We are pleased to be announcing the completion of our first stock repurchase program," stated William H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rockville Financial, Inc. "The Company obtained Board approval and regulatory non-objection for a new buyback plan prior to completing the first program in order to maintain our ability to repurchase shares in the market. Rockville is committed to delivering shareholder value and the effective and efficient use of excess capital. We view repurchases as an important capital management tool available to reach that goal."
