(1) Annualized

Lonnie R. Trasamar, President of Wells Financial Corp. (the Company) (OTC Bulletin Board: WEFP), the holding company of Wells Federal Bank (the Bank), announced annual earnings for 2009 of $2,110,000, up $865,000 or 69.5%, when compared to 2008. Basic and diluted earnings per share for 2009 were $2.72 and $2.71, respectively, up $1.13, when compared to 2008. The increase in net income for 2009 when compared to 2008 resulted, primarily, from an increase in the gain on sale of loans to the secondary market. During 2009 the Bank saw increased activity in the refinancing of loans sold to the secondary market due to a decrease in secondary market interest rates and programs introduced by the secondary market that streamlined the refinance process for the Bank's customers. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 was $440,000, down $15,000 or 3.3%, when compared to the same period in 2008. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $0.57. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $0.59 and $0.58, respectively.

When comparing December 31, 2009 to December 31, 2008, total assets increased by $12,168,000 due to a $32.3 million increase in cash. This increase in cash resulted from an increase in customer deposits of $26 million. Partially offsetting the increase in cash was a $22 million decrease in loans receivable. The decrease in loans receivable resulted, primarily, from decreases in loans for agricultural land and home equity line of credit loans. Liabilities increased by $10.7 million during 2009 due to the increase in deposits mentioned above being partially offset by a $15.4 million decrease in borrowed funds.

Cash Dividend Announcement

On January 19, 2010, the Company's Board of Directors declared a $0.26 per share cash dividend, payable on February 23, 2010 to shareholders of record on February 09, 2010. This is the seventeenth consecutive quarter that the Company has paid a $0.26 dividend.
