United Community Financial Corp. Announces The Termination Of Its Cease And Desist Order

Stocks in this article: UCFC

United Community Financial Corp. (“United Community” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: UCFC), the holding company of The Home Savings and Loan Company (“Home Savings”), announced today that the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (the “Federal Reserve”), under delegated authority of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, has terminated United Community’s Cease and Desist Order (“C&D”) effective July 2, 2013. The C&D had been in effect since August 8, 2008.

Patrick W. Bevack, President and CEO of United Community and Home Savings, said, “We are very pleased that the Federal Reserve has acknowledged the progress we’ve made in restoring the Company to financial stability. The lifting of the C&D reflects the dramatic reduction in our risk profile that we achieved by completing the bulk sale of troubled and other assets in September 2012, combined with the successful completion in June 2013 of the last phase of our $47 million capital raise. Perhaps most importantly, it aligns our regulatory status at United Community with that of Home Savings, since Home Savings’ Consent Order was lifted on January 31, 2013.”

United Community has an understanding with the Federal Reserve that it will not pay dividends, repurchase shares or take on debt without the Federal Reserve’s prior approval.

Bevack added: “We have established a very good working relationship with our Regulators. As a result, we will continue to work closely with the Federal Reserve to ensure that United Community continues to be a source of strength to Home Savings.”

Home Savings is a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Community and operates 33 full-service banking offices and nine loan production offices located throughout Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Additional information on United Community and Home Savings may be found on United Community’s web site: www.ucfconline.com.
