 DEDHAM, Mass., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Multibank Financial Corp.

 During the fourth quarter, the sale of certain credit card related assets resulted in after tax gains of $1,350,000.

These factors along with a lower provision for possible credit losses contributed to the improved quarterly results.

 At Dec. 31, 1991 non-performing assets were $176,943,000, down from $189,852,000 at Dec. 31, 1990. Non-performing loans at year-end 1991 were $101,884,000 down from $148,380,000 a year ago.

 Commenting on the company's performance, Multibank Chairman and CEO, David B. Lynch said, "We are encouraged by our profit in the fourth quarter and by decreasing non-performing loans. We look forward to an improved performance in 1992."
