Stocks in this article: FFCO

MONESSEN, Pa., Jan. 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FedFirst Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:FFCO) today announced that the Company's board of directors has declared a special cash dividend of $0.25 per share on its outstanding common stock, payable on or about February 28, 2014 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 14, 2014. The special dividend is in addition to the Company's regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share that was last paid on December 31, 2013.

"Given our high levels of capital and continued strong performance, our board of directors determined that it is an appropriate time to distribute earnings in the form of a special dividend as a meaningful return on investment to our shareholders," said Patrick G. O'Brien, President and CEO. "Our capital ratios will continue to be very strong after payment of this special dividend with sufficient capital to support regular dividend payments and stock repurchases while maintaining financial flexibility to continue to grow our Company."

FedFirst Financial Corporation is the parent company of First Federal Savings Bank, a community-oriented financial institution operating seven full-service branch locations in southwestern Pennsylvania. First Federal offers a broad array of retail and commercial lending and deposit services and provides commercial and personal insurance services through Exchange Underwriters, Inc., its 80% owned subsidiary.
