President's Statement

I am pleased to report earnings available to common shareholders of $1,138,000 for the third quarter of 2012; our fifth consecutive quarter with over $1,000,000 in such earnings. Our performance in 2012 continues to be driven by steady improvement in cost of funds; a good year in most noninterest income business lines; continued stability in loan portfolio quality; and success in managing controllable noninterest expenses. While we are satisfied with a double digit percentage increase in earnings available to common shareholders over 2011, we know we can achieve more. We remain confident in our ability to deliver.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I announce today that Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. is declaring a cash dividend of $0.05 per share on our common stock based upon our results of operations for the third quarter of 2012. The dividend is payable November 26, 2012 to shareholders of record November 7, 2012.
