HARLEYSVILLE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Harleysville Savings Financial Corporation (OTCQB:HARL) reported today that the Company's board of directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $.21 per share on the Company's common stock. The cash dividend will be payable on May 22, 2013 to stockholders of record on May 8, 2013.
Net income for the second quarter was $1,202,000 or $.31 per diluted share compared to $1,221,000 or $.32 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

Commenting on the quarter-end operating results, President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Geib stated, "The low level of interest rates continues to provide a unique challenge for the financial industry. This environment, along with a continued lack in demand for loans, is putting pressure on the interest margins and constraining the growth in the balance sheet. Given these conditions, we are very pleased to report another quarter of solid financial results. Our net interest income, level of non-performing loans and other expenses, are closely monitored and are the key to allowing us to deliver consistent, ongoing returns for our shareholders."
The Company's assets totaled $804.4 million compared to $842.3 million a year ago. Stockholders' tangible book value increased 3.6% to $16.12 per share from $15.56 a year ago.
