BALTIMORE, April 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BCSB Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCSBD), holding company for Baltimore County Savings Bank, F.S.B., announced that the second step conversion of Baltimore County Savings Bank, F.S.B. from the mutual holding company form of organization to the stock form of organization was completed as of the close of business today. President and CEO Joseph Bouffard stated that this was a major milestone for the Company. Coupled with the recent lifting of a Supervisory Agreement by the Company's primary federal regulator (The Office of Thrift Supervision), BCSB has accomplished two of its major strategic initiatives -- becoming better capitalized and easing regulatory concerns. Bouffard indicated that the raising of capital, in a particularly difficult economic market for financial institutions, was encouraging because it showed investor confidence in the Company. As a result of the conversion and offering, BCSB Bancorp, Inc. became the holding company for Baltimore County Savings Bank, F.S.B., and Baltimore County Savings Bank, M.H.C. and BCSB Bankcorp, Inc. ceased to exist.

Employee Stock Ownership Plan. As part of the conversion, existing shares of BCSB Bankcorp were converted into the right to receive 0.5264 shares of BCSB Bancorp common stock. Cash will be issued in lieu of fractional shares based on the offering price of $10.00. Stock certificates will be mailed to investors in the subscription and community and syndicated community offerings on or about April 11, 2008.
