NASB Financial, Inc. Announces Financial Results
Grandview, Missouri (February 8, 2013) - NASB Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: NASB) announced today net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, of $8,317,000 or $1.06 per share. This compares to net income of $7,741,000 or $0.98 per share for the quarter ended

Included in the results of the quarter ended December 31, 2012, is a negative provision for loan losses of $4 million, which was necessary to reduce the Bank's ALLL to a level consistent with the Bank's ALLL methodology. During the quarter, various quantitative factors used in the ALLL methodology showed notable improvement, including a decrease in criticized assets, a decrease in the Bank's level of non-performing assets, and declines in the Bank's commercial real estate, construction and land development portfolios which have generally experienced higher loss rates. Qualitative factors also improved, including renewed strength of the Kansas City area housing market, where all of the Bank's construction and land development loans are concentrated.
NASB Financial, Inc. is a unitary thrift holding company for North American Savings Bank, F.S.B. ("North American" or the "Bank"). As of December 31, 2012, the Bank's tier 1 leverage ratio and total risk-based capital ratio was 14.62% and 19.00%, respectively.
