Home Financial Bancorp (OTCQB: HWEN) today announced that the expiration date
of its tender offer for the purchase of all shares of its common stock held by
persons owning 1,000 or fewer shares as of the close on September 18, 2012,

In commenting on the results of the offer to date, Kurt D. Rosenberger, the
President of Home Financial Bancorp, stated: “We have received an excellent
response so far in connection with this tender offer and are encouraged that
we will accomplish our goals. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy interfered with
the final days of the original tender offer. For this reason, we have extended
the offer to allow eligible shareholders who want to participate the ability
to do so as we have received expressions of interest from eligible
shareholders who have not yet tendered their shares pursuant to this offer.”

Financial Officer, or Kurt D. Rosenberger, President of Home Financial
Bancorp, at (812) 829-2095, or Eagle Rock Proxy Advisors, the Information
Agent for the offer, by telephone at (855) 413-5856 (toll free) or via email
