STATEN ISLAND, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 12, 2019 / VSB Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: VSBN), the holding company for Victory State Bank, announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.13 per share, payable on July 1, 2019, to stockholders of record on June 21, 2019. Joseph J. LiBassi, Chairman of the Board of Directors, stated, "We are pleased to announce our forty-seventh consecutive cash dividend. Additionally, we have increased our quarterly dividend by 8.3%, or by $0.01 per share."

Raffaele M. Branca, President and Chief Executive Officer, reported, "Our dividend payout ratio is 37.6% on first quarter 2019 earnings. Our first quarter 2019 income reflects the adoption of the new lease standard, which initially increases our lease expense in the earlier years after adoption."

The Bank's initial capitalization of $7.0 million was primarily raised in the Staten Island community. The Bancorp's total equity stood at $35.9 million by March 31, 2019. The Bank operates five full service locations in Staten Island, the main office at 4142 Hylan Boulevard in Great Kills and branches on Forest Avenue in West Brighton, Hyatt Street in St. George, Hylan Boulevard in Dongan Hills and Bay Street in Rosebank. We are planning to open a sixth branch in the July 2019 in the Meiers Corners section of Staten Island, which has received both regulatory and building department approvals.
