ALLIANCE BANCORP, INC. OF PENNSYLVANIA REVISES FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR END RESULTS.
 
Broomall, Pennsylvania.  February 29, 2008 – Alliance Bancorp, Inc. of Pennsylvania (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Global Market:  ALLB) announced today that it has revised its results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2007.  This revision has resulted from the reclassification of unrealized losses on investment securities that have subsequently been identified as other than temporarily impaired.
 
On January 25, 2008, the Company reported net income of $370,000 or $.05 per diluted share and $1.6 million or $.23 per diluted share for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2007, respectively.  However, due to the continued decline in the fair value of the Company’s investment in its $20 million mutual funds portfolio subsequent to year end 2007, the Company has identified the impairment of these securities as other than temporary and has reclassified the December 31, 2007 unrealized pre-tax loss of $860,000 as a charge against operating results.  This reclassification has no impact on previously reported stockholders’ equity as of December 31, 2007.  However, as a result of this charge, the Company is reporting a net loss of $197,000 or $.03 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 and net income of $1.1 million or $.15 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2007.
 
The Company attributes the lower valuations of these mutual funds to a significant widening of spreads primarily due to the mortgage-related securities underlying these funds.  This spread differential is primarily due to the general lack of investor interest for these type of securities in the current market environment.  While the funds are presently returning a 4.75% dividend, their fair value has continued to decline by approximately $240,000 at the end of February 2008 as compared to December 31, 2007.  If this further decline in fair value does not significantly recover before the Company’s next reporting period, an additional impairment charge will be recorded against operating results for the quarter ending March 31, 2008.
 
Alliance Bancorp, Inc. of Pennsylvania is the holding company for Alliance Bank, a Pennsylvania chartered, FDIC-insured savings bank headquartered in Broomall, Pennsylvania.  Alliance Bank operates nine full-service branch offices located in Delaware and Chester Counties, Pennsylvania.

Forward-looking statements, by their nature, are subject to risks and uncertainties.  A number of factors – many of which are beyond the Company’s control – could cause actual conditions, events or results to differ significantly from those described in the forward-looking statements.  The Company’s reports filed from time-to-time with the Securities and Exchange Commission describe some of these factors, including general economic conditions, changes in interest rates, deposit flows, the cost of funds, changes in credit quality and interest rate risks associated with the Company’s business and operations.  Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made.  The Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date the forward-looking statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
