Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., (the “Company”), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the “Bank”), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced earnings for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2014. For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net income of $402,000, or $0.34 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $349,000, or $0.29 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

In February 2012, the Board of Directors of Eureka Financial Corp. (the “Company”), the holding company for Eureka Bank, announced that it had authorized a stock repurchase program to acquire up to 10% of the Company’s outstanding common stock.  Under the program, repurchases will be conducted through open market purchases or through privately negotiated transactions.

Although we successfully completed our second-step conversion two years ago, we realize that the trading of our common stock has been sporadic and the volume of shares traded is low. If you desire to sell your shares and have had difficulty doing so in the open market, I wanted you to know that there is an alternative way to sell your shares. Under the authorized stock repurchase program, we have the ability to purchase your shares directly from you. If you are planning on selling your shares, I encourage you to check with our Chief Financial Officer, Gary B. Pepper, to see if we are interested in repurchasing your shares. If so, we may be able to purchase your shares directly from you without any brokerage commissions.

He can be reached at (412) 681-8400.  Thank you for your continued support of Eureka Financial Corp.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES FINANCIAL RESULTS
FOR THE QUARTER AND YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013

Eureka Financial Corp., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (the “Company”), the parent company for Eureka Bank (the “Bank”), today announced net income for the three months ended September 30, 2013 of $371,000, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, as compared to $331,000, or $0.27 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in income for the quarter reflected an increase in net interest income and decreases in the provision for loan losses and non-interest expense. For the year ended September 30, 2013, the Company reported net income of $1.4 million, or $1.14 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $1.17 diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. The small decrease in income for the year ended September 30, 2013 was primarily due to an increase in non-interest expense. 

President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Seserko stated “The Company is pleased to report that fiscal 2013 was another very strong year despite the difficult economic environment. The Company continued to achieve controlled deposit growth and reallocated $6.5 million from cash and investments to the loan portfolio, which increased by $9.0 million to $121.4 million at September 30, 2013 from $112.4 million at September 30, 2012. This reallocation of funds helped the Company realize an annualized yield on interest earning assets of 5.22% and a net interest margin of 4.30% at September 30, 2013. At September 30, 2013, the Bank remains well capitalized with a core capital ratio of 14.91%, which exceeds regulatory requirements. Also, non-accruing loans, or loans over 90 days delinquent, consisted of only one loan totaling $424,000 at September 30, 2013 on a loan portfolio in excess of $121 million.”

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2012

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., (the "Company"), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the "Bank"), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced net income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 of $333,000, or $0.25 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $388,000, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in net income was primarily attributable to an increase in noninterest expense and, to a lesser extent, an increase in the provision for loan losses and a decrease in net interest income. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to increases in regular operational activities. The decrease in net interest income resulted from a decrease in interest income on investment securities that was partially offset by an increase in interest income on loans. The decrease in interest income on securities was primarily the result of called securities and lower rates available on investments available for purchase. The decrease in interest income was partially offset by a decrease in interest expense, primarily due to the low interest rate environment

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES EARNINGS
FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2011

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp. (the "Company"), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the "Bank"), today announced net income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 of $388,000, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $242,000, or $0.19 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The increase in net income was primarily attributable to an increase in net interest income due to an increase in net loans receivable and investment securities and a 50 basis point reduction in our cost of funds, which decreased from 1.69% at December 31, 2010, to 1.19% at December 31, 2011. The increase in net interest income was partially offset by an increase in income tax expense, due to the higher earnings for the quarter.

President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Seserko stated "The Company had a very strong quarter to start fiscal year 2012. The Company’s assets increased $6.2 million, or 4.8%, from $131.0 million at December 31, 2010 to $137.2 million at December 31, 2011, primarily due to a $1.5 million, or 5.9%, increase in cash and investments and a $7.9 million, or 7.9%, increase in loans. The increase in cash and investments was primarily due to additional securities purchased with the proceeds from our second-step conversion, which was completed in February 2011. At December 31, 2011, the Bank remains well capitalized with a core capital ratio of approximately 14.21%, which exceeds regulatory requirements. Also, non-accruing loans, or loans over 90 days delinquent, consisted of only one loan totaling $6,000 at December 31, 2011, on a loan portfolio in excess of $106 million."

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol "EKFC."

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES FINANCIAL RESULTS
FOR THE QUARTER AND YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2011

Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania (the “Company”), the parent company for Eureka Bank, today announced net income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 of $353,000, or $0.28 diluted earnings per share, as compared to a net loss of $17,000, or $0.01 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  For the year ended September 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $1.3 million, or $1.03 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $719,000, or $0.57 diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010.  The increased income in the periods was primarily due to increases in net interest income and non-interest income partially offset by increased non-interest expense.  The decreased non-interest income for the quarter and year ended September 30, 2010 was due to losses recognized by the Company in connection with the sale of its remaining holdings of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock.

President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Seserko stated “The Company was able to have a very strong year in this tough economic environment.  The Company’s assets increased $10.3 million, or 8.1%, from $127.3 million at September 30, 2010 to $137.6 million at September 30, 2011, primarily due to a $6.0 million, or 26.2%, increase in cash and investments and a $6.5 million, or 6.6%, increase in loans. The increase in cash and investments was primarily due to additional securities purchased with the proceeds from our second-step conversion completed in February 2011.  At September 30, 2011, the Bank remains well capitalized with a core capital ratio of 13.26%, which exceeds regulatory requirements.  Also, non-accruing loans, or loans over 90 days delinquent, consisted of only one loan totaling $22,000 at September 30, 2011, on a loan portfolio in excess of $104 million.”

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., (the “Company”), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the Bank), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced net income for the three months ended December 31, 2010 of $242,000, or $0.19 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $234,000, or $0.19 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2009.  The increase in net income was primarily attributable to an increase in net interest income due to an increase in net loans receivable and investment securities.  These increases were partially offset by an increase in non-interest expense, which was the result of increases in compensation and FDIC insurance expense.

The shares of common stock to be offered by new Eureka Financial Corp. represent the approximately 57.9.% of Eureka Financial Corp.’s common stock that is currently owned by Eureka Bancorp, MHC. 

The shares will be offered  in a subscription offering first to depositors of Eureka Bank with a qualifying deposit as of June 30, 2009, second to the Bank’s tax-qualified employee benefit plans, third to depositors of Eureka Bank with a qualifying deposit as of December 31, 2010 and finally to depositors of Eureka Bank as of December 31, 2010.  Concurrently with the subscription offering, new Eureka Financial Corp. is offering any shares of common stock that are not subscribed for in the subscription offering to members of the general public in a community offering, with preference given first to persons residing in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and then to shareholders of the Company as of December 27, 2010.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES FINANCIAL RESULTS
FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2010

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, (the "Company"), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank, today announced a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2010 of $17,000, or $0.01 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $183,000, or $0.15 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2009. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010, the Company reported net income of $719,000, or $0.57 diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $3.4 million, or $2.71 diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009. The net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 included a deferred tax benefit of $2.6 million related to an other than temporary impairment charge of $7.7 million on the Company’s Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock holdings at September 30, 2008. This deferred tax benefit was not recorded until the first quarter of fiscal 2009 as a result of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 not being enacted into law until October 3, 2008.

President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Seserko stated "The Bank sold all of the remaining shares of the aforementioned preferred stock holdings in the quarter ended September 30, 2010. These sales lowered net income for the fourth quarter by approximately $179,000. The Company was still able to have a very solid year in this tough economic environment. For the year ended September 30, 2010, the Bank experienced over 20.0% deposit growth. At September 30, 2010, the Bank remains very well capitalized with a core capital ratio of 10.10%, which far exceeds regulatory requirements. Also, non-accruing loans, or loans over 90 days delinquent, totaled $58,000 at September 30, 2010, on a loan portfolio in excess of $98 million."

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in the city of Pittsburgh. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol "EKFC."

The foregoing material may contain forward-looking statements concerning the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company. We caution that such statements are subject to a number of uncertainties and actual results could differ materially and, therefore, readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake, and specifically disclaims, any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions that may be made to any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements.

Eureka Financial Corp. Announces
Adoption of Plan of Conversion and Reorganization
 

Pittsburgh , PA - Eureka Financial Corp. (the "Company") (OTCBB:EKFC), holding company for Eureka Bank, announced today that the Board of Directors of the Company has unanimously adopted a Plan of Conversion and Reorganization (the "Plan") pursuant to which Eureka Bank will reorganize from the two-tier mutual holding company structure to the stock holding company structure and will undertake a "second-step" stock offering of shares of common stock of a new corporation formed in connection with the conversion. Eureka Bank converted from a mutual savings bank to the holding company structure and offered and sold a minority of its shares in 1999. Eureka Bank reorganized into the "two-tier" mutual holding company structure by forming the Company in 2003.

Eureka Bancorp, MHC (the "MHC"), which owns approximately 57.9% of the outstanding common stock of the Company, will be merged with and into the Company as part of the reorganization and its shares in the Company will be retired. The new holding company will offer and sell shares of common stock in an amount representing the percentage ownership interest currently held by the MHC, also to be based on an appraisal of the Company, as converted, which will be performed by an independent appraiser. The new holding company will offer shares of its common stock for sale to Eureka Bank's eligible account holders and tax-qualified employee benefit plans and to members of the general public in a subscription and community offering in the manner and subject to the priorities set forth in the Plan. The highest priority will be depositors with qualifying deposits as of June 30, 2009. In addition, existing shareholders of the Company, other than the MHC, will receive shares of common stock of a new Maryland corporation pursuant to an "exchange ratio" designed to preserve their aggregate percentage ownership interest. The exchange ratio will be determined based upon the appraisal of the Company and the results of the offering.

The conversion and reorganization will be subject to approval of Eureka Bank's depositors, the Company's shareholders (including the approval of a majority of the shares held by persons other than the MHC) and regulatory agencies.

Information, including the details of the offering and business and financial information about the Company and Eureka Bank, will be provided in proxy materials and a prospectus when the offering commences, which is expected to be during the first quarter of 2011.

Eureka Financial Corp. is the holding company for Eureka Bank, a federal savings bank headquartered in Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania . Eureka Bank operates two full-service banking offices in the Oakland and Shaler sections of Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania .

This release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy common stock. The offer is made only by the prospectus when accompanied by a stock order form. The shares of common stock of the Company are not savings accounts or savings deposits, may lose value and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements about the conversion and reorganization. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding anticipated future events and can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They often include words such as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," and "intend" or future or conditional verbs such as "will," "would," "should," "could," or "may." Forward-looking statements, by their nature, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results include delays in consummation of the Plan of Conversion and Reorganization, difficulties in selling the conversion stock or in selling the conversion stock within the expected time frame, increased competitive pressures, changes in the interest rate environment, general economic conditions or conditions within the securities markets, and legislative and regulatory changes that could adversely affect the business in which the Company is engaged.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES EARNINGS
FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2008

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp. (the "Company"), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank (the "Bank"), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced earnings for the fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2008. The Company recorded an other-than-temporary impairment charge on its preferred stock holdings of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac of $7.8 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2008. As a result of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 ("EESA"), which was enacted into law on October 3, 2008, the Company will record a deferred tax benefit of approximately $2.6 million in their first fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2008 associated with the other-than-temporary impairment losses. Before the enactment of EESA, such losses would have been treated as capital losses for both tax and financial reporting purposes. Under EESA, ordinary loss treatment is available to financial institutions for such securities.

For the three months ended September 30, 2008, the Company lost $7.8 million, or $11.88 diluted earnings per share, as compared to earnings of $153,000, or $0.12 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2007. For the year ended September 30, 2008, the Company lost $7.2 million, or $5.70 diluted earnings per share, as compared to earnings of $762,000, or $0.60 diluted earnings per share, for the year ended September 30, 2007.

Edward Seserko, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated "While this loss certainly impaired net income for year ended September 30, 2008, the Bank remains well capitalized. We are looking forward to putting this one-time write down behind us and focusing on restoring net income to normal levels."

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in Pittsburgh. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol "EKFC."

The foregoing material may contain forward-looking statements concerning the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORPORATION ANNOUNCES QUARTERLY DIVIDEND

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corporation (the "Company"), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (OTCBB: EKFC), announced today that it is reducing its quarterly dividend from $0.35 per share to $0.15 per share, beginning immediately. The dividend will be paid on October 31, 2008 to stockholders of record at the close of business on October 15, 2008.

Edward F. Seserko, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The Bank’s Tier I capital ratio is expected to be approximately 10.0% at September 30, 2008, after factoring in the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities impairment charge. Under regulatory standards, the Bank will remain "well capitalized.". Nevertheless, the Board of Directors and senior management feel it is imperative to retain and build capital given the current extraordinarily difficult operating environment. Further, the lower dividend reflects the Board’s expectation of lower future net income due to the absence of the receipt of dividend income from holdings of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock, which totaled approximately $500,000 in fiscal 2008. This decision was made after great thought, market evaluation and capital needs analysis."

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in Pittsburgh. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol "EKFC."

The foregoing material may contain forward-looking statements concerning the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORPORATION ANNOUNCES IMPAIRMENT
ON FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC STOCK;
REMAINS “WELL CAPITALIZED”

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corporation (the “Company”), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (OTCBB: EKFC), announced today that it intends to take a non-cash impairment charge on the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred and common stock it owns.  At June 30, 2008, these investments had an amortized cost of $8.2 million and a total market value of $6.8 million.  Management determined that any decline in value of such securities at June 30, 2008 was not other than temporary.

However, since June 30, 2008, the market value of these securities has declined significantly.  On September 7, 2008, the United States Department of Treasury announced that it was seizing control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and prohibiting those entities from paying dividends on its common and preferred securities.  These actions caused the market value of the preferred and common stock to fall to minimal levels.  Because of the apparent unlikelihood that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred and common stock will recover their value, the Company will record an other than temporary impairment charge in its fiscal fourth quarter, which ends September 30, 2008, based on the then existing fair market value of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred and common stock owned by the Company.

Management has calculated that, assuming a worst case scenario in which the securities have no value, that even after the impairment charge, the capital ratios of the Company’s subsidiary, Eureka Bank, will remain above the amounts necessary to be categorized as “well-capitalized” under current regulatory requirements at September 30, 2008.

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates two offices in Pittsburgh .  The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol “EKFC.”  

The foregoing material may contain forward-looking statements concerning the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company.  We caution that such statements are subject to a number of uncertainties and actual results could differ materially and, therefore, readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.  The Company does not undertake, and specifically disclaims, any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions that may be made to any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements.

EUREKA FINANCIAL CORP. ANNOUNCES EARNINGS
FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2007

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Eureka Financial Corp., (the "Company"), the parent holding company for Eureka Bank, (the "Bank"), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today announced earnings for the fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2007. For the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company earned $146,000, or $0.12 diluted earnings per share, as compared to earnings of $244,000, or $0.19 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2006. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007, the Company earned $755,000, or $0.60 diluted earnings per share, as compared to earnings of $1.0 million, or $0.82 diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2006.

The earnings for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007, reflect an increase in interest expense of approximately $550,000 from the fiscal year ended September 30, 2006. This market-driven expense compressed the Company’s margins, which caused the decline in earnings for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007.

The Bank, founded in 1886, is a federally chartered stock savings bank and operates one office in the Oakland community of Pittsburgh. The Company’s common stock trades in the over-the-counter market under the symbol "EKFC."
