CARMICHAELS, Pa., Nov. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CB Financial Services, Inc. ("CB") (NASDAQ:CBFV), the holding company of Community Bank, announced it has been admitted to the Sandler O'Neill Sm-All Stars: Class of 2015. The objective of the Sandler O'Neill Sm-All Stars is to identify the top performing small-cap banks and thrifts in the country. In doing this, Sandler O'Neill hopes to uncover the next crop of stellar mid-cap banks before they are discovered by the rest of the world. The Sm-All Stars: Class of 2015 consists of only 34 elite institutions out of 435 publicly traded banks and thrifts with a market cap below $2.5 billion. Each institution was evaluated on growth, profitability, credit quality, and capital strength. CB easily exceeded the median performance metrics in those areas and was one of three banks from Pennsylvania added to this year's list.
"We are honored to be included in the Sandler O'Neill Sm-All Stars: Class of 2015. This recognition is a tribute to our wonderful employees and the outstanding service they deliver everyday to our customers," said Barron "Pat" McCune, Jr., President and CEO.
Community Bank was established in 1901 and is well-known for meeting the financial needs of the markets it serves. CB began trading on the NASDAQ Stock Market following its merger with FedFirst Financial Corporation last fall. The merger created a 16 branch bank operating in five southwestern Pennsylvania counties. CB reported assets of $824.1 million as of September 30, 2015.
