NOTE B - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Roma Bank and Roma Bank’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, Roma Capital Investment Corp. (the “Investment Co.”) and General Abstract and Title Agency (the “Title Co.”), and the Company’s majority owned investment of 91.12% in RomAsia Bank. The consolidated statements also include the Company’s 50% interest in 84 Hopewell, LLC (the “LLC”), a real estate investment which is consolidated according to the requirements of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810, Variable Interest Entities.   All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These statements were prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and, therefore, do not  include all information or footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

NOTE B - BASIS OF PRESENTATION (Continued)

In the opinion of management, all adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements have been made at and for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.  The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire fiscal year or other interim periods.

The December 31, 2011 data in the consolidated statements of financial condition was derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for that date. That data, along with the interim financial information presented in the consolidated statements of financial condition, income, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows should be read in conjunction with the 2011 audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, including the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The Investment Co. was incorporated in the State of New Jersey effective September 4, 2004, and began operations October 1, 2004.  The Investment Co. is subject to the investment company provisions of the New Jersey Corporation Business Tax Act.  The Title Co. was incorporated in the State of New Jersey effective March 7, 2005 and commenced operations April 1, 2005. The Company, together with two individuals, formed a limited liability company, 84 Hopewell, LLC. The LLC was formed to build a commercial office building in which is located the Company’s Hopewell branch, corporate offices for the other LLC members construction company and tenant space. The Company invested $370,000 in the LLC and provided a loan in the amount of $3.6 million to the LLC. The Company and the other 50% owner’s construction company both have signed lease commitments to the LLC.

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).  In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated statements of financial condition and revenues and expenses for the periods then ended.  Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

A material estimate that is particularly susceptible to significant change relates to the determination of the allowance for loan losses.  The allowance for loan losses represents management’s best estimate of losses known and inherent in the portfolio that are both probable and reasonable to estimate.  While management uses the most current information available to estimate losses on loans, actual losses are dependent on future events and, as such, increases in the allowance for loan losses may be necessary.

In addition, various regulatory agencies, as an integral part of their examination process, periodically review the Banks’ allowance for loan losses.  Such agencies may require the Banks to recognize additions to the allowance based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examinations.

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”) Topic 855, Subsequent Events, management has evaluated subsequent events until the date of issuance of this report, and concluded that no events occurred that were of a material nature.


NOTE C - CONTINGENCIES

The Company, from time to time, is a party to routine litigation that arises in the normal course of business.  In the opinion of management, the resolution of such litigation, if any, would not have a material adverse effect, as of March 31, 2012, on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations.


NOTE D – EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of common shares actually outstanding adjusted for Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”) shares not yet committed to be released. Diluted EPS is calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding to include the effect of outstanding stock options and unvested stock awards, if dilutive, using the treasury stock method. Shares issued and reacquired during any period are weighted for the portion of the period they were outstanding.

Outstanding stock options and restricted stock grants for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were not considered in the calculation of diluted earnings per share because they were antidilutive.

NOTE E – STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

Equity Incentive Plan

At the Annual Meeting held on April 23, 2008, stockholders of the Company approved the Roma Financial Corporation  2008 Equity Incentive Plan.

The 2008 Plan enables the Board of Directors to grant stock options to executives, other key employees and nonemployee directors. The options granted under the Plan may be either incentive stock options or non-qualified stock options. The Company has reserved 1,292,909 shares of common stock for issuance upon the exercise of options granted under the 2008 Plan and 517,164 shares for grants of restricted stock.  The Plan will terminate in ten years from the grant date.  Options will be granted with an exercise price not less than the Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of the grant. Options may not be granted for a term greater than ten years.  Stock options granted under the Incentive Plan are subject to limitations under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code.  The number of shares available under the 2008 Plan, the number of shares subject to outstanding options and the exercise price of outstanding options will be adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split, merger, reorganization or other event generally affecting the number of Company’s outstanding shares.

On June 25, 2008, Directors, Senior Officers and certain employees of the Company were granted, in the aggregate, 820,000 stock options and awarded 222,000 shares of restricted stock.

On June 15, 2011, Directors of the Company were granted in the aggregate 32,000 stock options and awarded 54,000 shares of restricted stock.

On November 16, 2011, Senior Officers and certain employees of the Company were awarded 19,350 shares of restricted stock.

At March 31, 2012, there were 471,709 shares available for option grants under the 2008 Plan and 227,814 shares available for grants of restricted stock.

The Company accounts for stock based compensation under FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation.  ASC Topic 718 covers a wide range of share-based compensation arrangements including share options, restricted share plans, performance-based awards, share appreciation rights, and employee share purchase plans. ASC Topic 718 requires that compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements. The cost is measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued.

ASC Topic 718 also requires the Company to realize as a financing cash flow rather than an operating cash flow, as previously required, the benefits of realized tax deductions in excess of previously recognized tax benefits on compensation expense.  In accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 107, the Company classified share-based compensation for employees and outside directors within “salaries and employee benefits” in the consolidated statement of income to correspond with the same line item as the cash compensation paid.

The stock options will vest over a five year service period and are exercisable within ten years. Compensation expense for all option grants is recognized over the awards’ respective requisite service period.

Restricted shares vest over a five year service period. Management recognizes compensation expense for the fair value of restricted shares on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the awards of five years. The number of shares granted and the grant date market price of the Company’s common stock determines the fair value of the restricted shares under the Company’s restricted stock plan.

Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Roma Bank has an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”) for the benefit of employees who meet the eligibility requirements defined in the plan.  The ESOP trust purchased 811,750 shares of common stock as part of the stock offering using proceeds from a loan from the Company.  The total cost of the shares purchased by the ESOP trust was $8.1 million, reflecting a cost of $10 per share.  Roma Bank makes cash contributions to the ESOP on a quarterly basis sufficient to enable the ESOP to make the required loan payments to the Company.  The loan bears an interest rate of 8.25% with principal and interest payable in equal quarterly installments over a fifteen year period.  The loan is secured by the shares of the stock purchased.

NOTE E – STOCK BASED COMPENSATION (Continued)

Shares purchased with the loan proceeds were initially pledged as collateral for the term loan and are held in a suspense account for future allocation among participants.  Contributions to the ESOP and shares released from the suspense account will be allocated among the participants on the basis of compensation, as described by the Plan, in the year of allocation.  As shares are committed to be released from collateral, the Company reports compensation expense equal to the current market price of the shares, and the shares become outstanding for earnings per share computations.  Roma Bank made its first loan payment in October 2006.  As of March 31, 2012, there were 500,583 unearned shares. The Company’s ESOP compensation expense was $139 thousand and $142 thousand, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

NOTE F – STOCK  WARRANTS

RomAsia Bank issued warrants to purchase 150,500 shares of RomAsia Common Stock (the “warrants”), bearing an exercise price of $10.00 per share, to the Founding Stockholders who subscribed initially for 150,500 shares of RomAsia Common Stock and provided $1,505,000 to pay  RomAsia’s organizational expenses. The warrants were issued on June 23, 2008.
 
The warrants will become exercisable in three equal installments on the first, second and third anniversaries after their respective dates of issuance. Warrants will be convertible into one share of RomAsia Common Stock and will be transferable only in compliance with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws.  RomAsia may redeem the Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Warrant at any time after January 1, 2012 upon 60 days prior written notice to the holders thereof.

The Warrants provide that, in the event that RomAsia’s capital falls below certain minimum requirements, the FDIC or the OCC may require RomAsia to notify the holders of the Warrants that such holders must exercise the Warrants within 30 days of such notice, or such longer period as the FDIC or OCC may prescribe, or forfeit all rights to purchase shares of RomAsia Common Stock under the Warrants after the expiration of such period.

The Warrants expire ten years after being issued. In the event a holder fails to exercise the Warrants prior to their expiration, the Warrants will expire and the holder thereof will have no further rights with respect to the Warrants.
 
The Warrant expense for minority shareholders, (8.88% ownership), for the three month ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, was $-0-, and $23,000, respectively, and related deferred taxes were recorded at $-0- and $9,600, respectively. The warrant expense for the majority shareholder, Roma Financial Corporation, was eliminated in consolidation.
 
NOTE G - REAL ESTATE OWNED VIA EQUITY INVESTMENTS

In 2008, Roma Bank, together with two individuals, formed 84 Hopewell, LLC. The LLC was formed to build a commercial office building which includes Roma Bank’s Hopewell branch, corporate offices for the other 50% owners’ construction company and tenant space. Roma Bank made a cash investment of approximately $360,000 in the LLC and provided a loan to the LLC in the amount of $3.6 million. Roma Bank and the construction company both have signed lease commitments to the LLC. With the adoption of guidance in regards to variable interest entities now codified in FASB ASC Topic 810, Consolidation, the Company is required to perform an analysis to determine whether such an investment meets the criteria for consolidation into the Company’s financial statements.  As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, this variable interest entity met the requirements of ASC Topic 810 for consolidation based on Roma Bank being the primary financial beneficiary. This was determined based on the amount invested by the Bank compared to the other partners to the LLC and the lack of personal guarantees. As of March 31, 2012, the LLC had $4.0 million in fixed assets and a loan from Roma Bank for $3.3 million, which was eliminated in consolidation. The LLC had accrued interest payable to the Bank of $11 thousand at March 31, 2012 and during the three months then ended the Bank had paid $25 thousand in rent to the LLC.  Both of these amounts were eliminated in consolidation. Roma Bank’s 50% share of the LLC’s net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $8 thousand.

Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary-impairment (“OTTI”) at least on a quarterly basis, and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such an evaluation.

In determining OTTI under the ASC Topic 320, management considers many factors, including: (1) the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than amortized cost; (2) the financial condition and near term prospects of the issuer; (3) whether the market decline was affected by macroeconomic conditions, and (4) whether the entity has the intent to sell the debt security or more likely than not will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery.  The assessment of whether an other-than-temporary-impairment decline exists involves a high degree of subjectivity and judgment and is based on information available to management at a point in time.  An OTTI is deemed to have occurred if there has been an adverse change in the remaining expected future cash flows.

When OTTI for debt securities, occurs under the model, the amount of the OTTI recognized in earnings depends on whether an entity intends to sell the security or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis. If an entity intends to sell or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis, the OTTI shall be recognized in earnings equal to the entire difference between the investment’s amortized cost basis and its fair value at the balance sheet date.  If any entity does not  intend to  sell  the security  and  it is not  more likely than not that the entity will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis, the OTTI shall be separated into the amount representing the credit loss and the amount related to all other factors.  The amount of the total OTTI related to the credit loss is determined based on the present value of cash flows expected to be collected and is recognized in earnings.  The amount of the total OTTI related to other factors shall be recognized in other comprehensive income, net of applicable tax benefit.  The previous amortized cost basis less the OTTI recognized in earnings shall become the new amortized cost basis of the investment.

NOTE H – INVESTMENT AND MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITIES (Continued)
 
As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s available for sale portfolio in an unrealized loss position consisted of twenty-one securities.  There was one mutual fund, one corporate bond, and seventeen mortgage backed securities in an unrealized loss position for more than twelve months at March 31, 2012.  As of December 31, 2011, the Company’s available for sale portfolio in an unrealized loss position consisted of 26 securities.  There was one mutual fund, two corporate bonds, and twenty-three mortgage backed securities in an unrealized loss position for more than twelve months at December 31, 2011.
 
The available for sale mutual funds are a CRA investment that had an unrealized loss of approximately $80 thousand and $77 thousand at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  They have been in a loss position for the last two years with the greatest unrealized loss being approximately $109 thousand.  Management does not believe the mutual fund securities available for sale are other-than-temporarily impaired due to reasons of credit quality.  Unrealized losses in the mortgage-backed securities, U.S. Government securities and corporate bond  categories are due to the current interest rate environment and not due to credit concerns.  The Company does not intend to sell these securities and it is not more likely than not that we will be required to sell these securities.  As of March 31, 2012, management believes the impairments are temporary and no impairment loss has been realized in the Company’s consolidated income statement for the year ended March 31, 2012.
 
Proceeds from the sale of securities available for sale amounted to $-0- million and $1.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, with a realized gain of $-0- thousand and $19 thousand, respectively, and net losses of $-0- and $2 thousand.

At March 31, 2012, the Company’s held to maturity debt securities portfolio consisted of approximately 157 securities, of which 4 were in an unrealized loss position for less than twelve months and 1 was in a loss position for more than twelve months. No OTTI charges were recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The Company does not intend to sell these securities and it is not more likely than not that we will be required to sell these securities.

As of March 31, 2012, there were 3 Government National Mortgage Association securities, 17 Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation securities, and 15 Federal National Mortgage Association securities in unrealized loss positions. Management does not believe that any of the individual unrealized losses represent an OTTI.  The unrealized losses on mortgage-backed securities relate primarily to fixed interest rate and, to a lesser extent, adjustable interest rate securities.  Such losses are the result of changes in interest rates and not credit concerns. Roma Bank, the Investment Co. and RomAsia Bank do not intend to sell these securities and it is not more likely than not that they will be required to sell these securities, therefore, no OTTI is required.
