New Jersey Community Bank Reports Revised Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results for 2013

FREEHOLD, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - New Jersey Community Bank (OTCQB: NJCB) (the "Bank") reported revised and updated results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. The Bank had originally reported on January 27, 2014, net loss of $212 thousand, or $(0.11) per common share and earnings of $114 thousand, or $0.06 per common share, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively. As revised, the Bank is now reporting net loss of $1.6 million, or $(0.82) per common share and $1.2 million, or $(0.65) per common share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013.

The change in the Bank's reported results is directly related to recording, as of December 31, 2013, a non-recurring $2.0 million litigation charge in connection with a judgment against the Bank relating to a loan on which the Bank was fully repaid. The judgment determined that the payment constituted a "preference" under the bankruptcy code. As a result of this decision, the Bank established a litigation reserve for the full $2.0 million while it is in the process for appealing the court's decision. In addition, the Bank recorded an additional provision for loan loss of $275 thousand to adequately fund the allowance for loan loss relating to increased level of non-performing loans.

Following are the Bank's restated statements of financial condition for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the statements of operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.
