Highlight of Business Operations:

The Company’s assets totaled $272.9 million at December 31, 2010, as compared to $354.7 million at June 30, 2010. The $81.8 million or 23.1% decrease in total assets was primarily comprised of a $40.9 million or 35.6% decrease in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) - held to maturity, a $36.0 million or 23.5% decrease in investment securities held to maturity, a $1.6 million or 18.6% decrease in FDIC insured certificates of deposit, and a $1.5 million or 2.7% decrease in net loans receivable. The decrease in mortgage-backed securities – held to maturity was primarily due to paydowns on the Company’s mortgage-backed securities portfolio. The decrease in investment securities- held to maturity was primarily due to $49.0 million of issuer redemptions prior to maturity (i.e., calls) of U.S. Government agency bonds, $6.4 million of maturities/calls of investment grade corporate bonds, $5.5 million of maturities of investment grade short-term commercial paper, $4.6 million of maturities/calls of investment grade foreign bonds, $1.6 million of maturities of investment grade corporate utility first mortgage bonds and $900 thousand of maturities/redemptions of tax free municipal bonds, which were partially offset by purchases of $20.9 million of callable U.S. Government agency step-up bonds, $5.5 million of investment grade short-term commercial paper, $3.7 million of investment grade foreign bonds, $3.0 million of investment grade corporate bonds, and $100 thousand of PA housing agency bonds. The decrease in FDIC insured certificates of deposit was due to $4.3 million in redemptions of bank certificates of deposit which was partially offset by $2.7 million in investments in bank certificates of deposit. The Company has reduced its overall investment portfolio due to a marked decline in market interest rates and a narrowing of investment spreads. See “Asset and Liability Management”.

The Company’s total liabilities decreased $81.9 million or 25.0% to $245.0 million as of December 31, 2010 from $326.9 million as of June 30, 2010. The $81.9 million decrease in total liabilities was primarily comprised of a $60.0 million or 54.8% decrease in maturing legacy high-cost long-term FHLB advances and, a $22.4 million or 11.1% decrease in total savings deposits, which were partially offset by a $1.4 million or 11.5% increase in other short-term borrowings. The decrease in long–term FHLB advances was funded primarily by investment cash flows received during the six months ended December 31, 2010. Certificates of deposit decreased $22.2 million, demand and NOW deposits decreased $665 thousand, and advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance decreased $267 thousand, while savings accounts increased $422 thousand and money market accounts increased $299 thousand. The decrease in certificates of deposits is primarily the result of a $10.75 million early partial repayment of a CDARS One Way Buy CD, a $4 million matured cash management CD related to a local government unit and $2 million of maturing brokered deposits during the six

Total stockholders’ equity increased $104 thousand or 0.4% to $27.9 million as of December 31, 2010, from approximately $27.8 million as of June 30, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to Company net income of $273 thousand and other comprehensive income totaling $231 thousand, which were partially offset by cash dividends totaling $411 thousand. Other comprehensive income was principally attributable to unrealized holding gains on two private label mortgage backed securities totaling $228 thousand.

General.

The increase in net income was primarily attributable to a $298 thousand increase in net interest income, and a $21 thousand increase in non-interest income, which were partially offset by a $114 thousand increase in non-interest expense, a $107 thousand increase in income tax expense, and a $16 thousand increase in provisions for loan losses. For the six months ended December 31, 2010, net income decreased $31 thousand or 10.2% and earnings per share (basic and diluted) decreased $0.02 or 13.3% when compared to the same period in 2009.

The increase for the three months ended December 31, 2010 was principally attributable to an $83 thousand increase in ATM related expenses, and a $43 thousand increase in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance expense, which was partially offset by a $12 thousand decrease in employee related expenses. The increase for the six months ended December 31, 2010 was primarily attributable to an $83 thousand increase in ATM related expenses and a $55 thousand increase in FDIC insurance expense, which were partially

Funds used for financing activities totaled $81.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2010. The primary uses included a $60.0 million decrease in FHLB long-term advances, a $14.3 million decrease in wholesale total deposits, and a $7.8 million decrease in retail certificates of deposit. The decrease in FHLB long-term advances reflects paydowns on matured high cost FHLB legacy advances using cash flow from the Company’s investment portfolio. The Company chose to repay $14.3 million of wholesale time deposits using cash flow from repayments on mortgage-backed securities. The $7.8 million decrease in retail time deposits was primarily attributable to a matured $4 million cash management CD for a local government unit. Management believes that a significant portion of our local maturing deposits will remain with the Company.
