On September 30 th, we announced an agreement to acquire FNBNY, increasing our franchise's scale and continuing our westward expansion into three new markets including Melville, and our first two branches in Nassau County; Massapequa and Merrick.

Net Earnings and Returns

Core net income, which excludes acquisition costs, net of income taxes, for the quarter ended September 2013, was $3.4 million or $.37 per share, compared to $3.4 million or $.39 per share, for the same period in 2012. The decrease in earnings per share reflects the higher shares outstanding for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.
