Dec 03, 2010 (07:12 AM EST)

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Public Savings Bank's tremendous success delivering non-interest income through payment solutions and plastics as compared to its national competitors was validated in a 2010 benchmarking study by SWS Associates, LLC.

Public Savings Bank generated 4.35% of its average assets as non-interest income in 2010. During the same period, its peers nationally generated only .30% of average assets in non-interest income.

Income generated from deposit accounts was 8 times higher than peers at 0.64% of average assets, vs. 0.08% for peers.

"This study validates our growth strategy," said Jack Miller, CEO of Public Savings. "We set out to build a very different bank -- a bank whose success is based on offering valuable, fee-based products to our customers, not just holding on to their money. We're thrilled that outside evaluators are recognizing our financial success."

The benchmarking study compared Public Savings Bank's financial performance through 3Q 2010 to a national peer group of all FDIC Insured Savings bank's with assets less than $100M.

"We're on an upward trajectory for growth and success," said Miller, "and this study confirms our direction. We expect even greater results in the coming years."
