The Company also reported net income of $44.5 million (including the recognition of $38.7 million of income tax benefit from the reversal of a deferred tax asset valuation reserve) for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

Gary M. Small, President and Chief Executive Officer of United Community and Home Savings, commented that, “The second quarter results reflect solid core earnings progress for Home Savings.
