United Community Financial Corp. Announces Share Repurchase Program

United Community Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: UCFC), holding company of The Home Savings and Loan Company of Youngstown, Ohio, announced that the UCFC Board of Directors has reinstituted its share repurchase program.

The Board authorized the repurchase of a maximum of 1,477,804 UCFC common shares. The original authorization of the Board in April 2007 approved the repurchase of up to 2,000,000 UCFC common shares.

Gary M. Small, President and Chief Executive Officer of UCFC and Home Savings, stated, “As we implement our capital management strategies in an effort to maximize shareholder value and returns, we recognize the inherent value of the organization, which we believe is not reflected in the current market price of UCFC’s shares. Now that all regulatory orders and agreements have been terminated, we believe that reinstating the prior repurchase program allows us to take advantage of the favorable market price of UCFC shares and is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.”

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Community Financial Corp., Home Savings operates 33 full-service banking offices and ten loan production offices located throughout Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Additional information on UCFC and Home Savings may be found at www.ucfconline.com.
