EAU CLAIRE, WI, January 28, 2021 - Citizens Community Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CZWI),
the parent company of Citizens Community Federal N.A. (the “Bank” or “CCFBank”), today reported earnings of $3.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $3.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 and $3.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Net income as adjusted (non-GAAP)1 of $3.7 million, or $0.33 per diluted share was reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $3.3 million, or $0.30 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, the Company earned a record $12.7 million, or $1.14 per diluted share compared to earnings of $9.5 million, or $0.85 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

The Company’s fourth quarter operating results reflected: (1) increased net interest income largely due to increased accretion related to both reductions of purchased credit impaired loans and the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (SBA PPP) debt forgiveness; (2) higher loan loss provisions, primarily due to the impact of loan growth and economic uncertainty; (3) a continued robust refinancing market which led to an all-time high on gains on sale of mortgage loans; and (4) a modest increase in non-interest expenses due to branch closure costs and modestly higher impairment of mortgage servicing right assets, offset by lower compensation and a seasonal reduction in advertising.

Book value per share was $14.52 at December 31, 2020 compared to $14.10 at September 30, 2020 and $13.36 at December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per share (non-GAAP)5 was $11.18 at December 31, 2020 compared to $10.75 at September 30, 2020 and $9.89 at December 31, 2019. Book value per share increased $1.16 in fiscal 2020, a 9% increase from December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per share increased $1.29 in fiscal 2020, a 13.0% increase from December 31, 2019. In addition to building tangible book value per share 13.0% over the past year, the Company paid an annual dividend of $0.21 per share in fiscal 2020. On January 28, 2021, the Board of Directors approved a 10% increase in the annual cash dividend to $0.23 per share. The dividend will be payable on February 25, 2021 to the shareholders of record on February 11, 2021.

Stephen Bianchi, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, in expressing his appreciation of the Citizens team, said, “I am very proud of the focus and commitment by our colleagues to clients, to each other and to the communities we serve. Their dedication in the face of adversity helped the Bank deliver strong returns to stakeholders and positions us well for the future.”

“The continued execution of our strategic priorities resulted in the following highlights; (1) a 13% increase in tangible book value, or $1.29 per share, to $11.18; (2) continued asset quality improvement in the quarter with a $3.4 million, or
