First Savings Bank, F.S.B.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of First Savings Financial Group and First Savings Bank are each comprised of ten persons who are elected for terms of three (3) years, approximately one-third of whom are elected annually.

All of our directors are independent under the current listing standards of the NASDAQ Stock Market, except for Larry W. Myers, who serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of First Savings Financial Group and First Savings Bank, John P. Lawson, Jr., who serves as the Chief Operations Officer of First Savings Financial Group and First Savings Bank, and Samuel E. Eckart, who serves as Area President of First Savings Bank. In determining the independence of directors, the board of directors considered the various deposit, loan and other relationships that each director has with First Savings Bank, including loans and lines of credit to Charles E. Becht, Jr., Pamela Bennett-Martin, and Christopher Fordyce, in addition to the transactions disclosed under “- Transactions with First Savings Bank,” but determined in each case that these relationships did not interfere with their exercise of independent judgment in carrying out their responsibilities as a director.
