FREEHOLD, N.J., March 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Jersey Community Bank (OTCBB:NJCB) (the "Bank") reported revised and updated results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. The Bank had originally reported on January 19, 2011, net income of $147 thousand, or $0.09 per common share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010. As revised, the Bank is now reporting net income of $1.3 million, or $0.81 per common share for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010.

The change in the Bank's reported results is directly related to recording, as of December 31, 2010, a one-time non-recurring income tax benefit resulting from the reversal of a $1.2 million valuation allowance on the Bank's deferred income tax assets. As the Bank became profitable during the second quarter of 2010, remained profitable for the remainder of 2010, and projects profitable operations going forward, management determined that maintaining a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets was no longer necessary or appropriate. The largest component of the Bank's deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010, was federal and state net operating losses, which are now expected to be fully realizable.

Following are the Bank's restated statements of financial condition for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and the statements of operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. As a result of the reversal of the valuation allowance, the Bank's reported total assets also increased by $1.2 million, the amount of the deferred tax assets.
