February 11, 2014

BALTIMORE, Feb. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Madison Bancorp, Inc. (the Company) (OTCBB:MDSN), the holding company for Madison Square Federal Savings Bank, reported a profit of $18,000 or $0.03 per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to a profit of $72,000 or $0.13 per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Net income for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was $42,000 or $0.07 per basic and diluted common share, as compared to net income of $206,000 or $0.36 per basic and diluted common share for the nine months ended December 31, 2012.

Balance Sheet

Total assets decreased $3,512,000, or 2.3%, from $149,902,000 at March 31, 2013, to $146,390,000 at December 31, 2013 due to a $4,616,000, or 8.2%, decrease in investment securities available-for-sale, partially offset by an increase in net loans receivable of $671,000.

Total deposits decreased by $3,761,000, or 2.8%, to $130,895,000 at December 31, 2013 from $134,656,000 at March 31, 2013. This was primarily due to decreases in our higher cost certificates of deposit and our savings accounts, partially offset by increases in noninterest-bearing deposits and NOW and money market deposit accounts

Income Statement

Net income was $18,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $72,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in net income for the current quarter was primarily the result of a decrease in noninterest revenue resulting from reductions in gains on the sale of investment securities. This decrease in noninterest revenue was partially offset by an increase in net interest income.

Net income was $42,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $206,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in net income for the current period was primarily the result of a decrease in noninterest revenue resulting from reductions in gains on the sale of investment securities and gains on the sale of land and a decrease in net interest income. These decreases to income were only partially offset by a decrease in the provision for loan losses and decreases to noninterest expenses.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses, which excludes noninterest revenue and expense items, was $893,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $813,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, resulting in an increase of $80,000, or 9.8%, and $2,630,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $2,468,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2012, resulting in an increase of $162,000, or 6.5%. For both the three and nine month periods, the increase was primarily the result of decreases in interest expense and provision for loan losses, partially offset by decreases in interest revenue on loans, including fees.

President and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Gavin commented, "We are pleased with our continued profitability. We have benefited from lower interest expense as we have managed the rates on our deposits. Continuing challenges to the banking industry as a whole include an economy which continues to expand at only a modest pace, recent increases and potential further increases to the historically low interest rates of the past few years, a sluggish housing market and the added challenges of navigating regulatory headwinds.  Madison will, however, continue to make efforts to enhance performance by relying on our established areas of expertise:  focusing on asset quality, managing our expenses and providing quality banking services to our customers."

Madison Square Federal Savings Bank operates four full service branch offices located in Perry Hall, Fallston, Bel Air and Baltimore City, Maryland.
