  Broadway Financial Corporation Sells $13.1 Million of Non-Performing Loans

                  Reduces Non-Performing Loans by Almost 31%

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- February 20, 2013

Broadway Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Capital Market: BYFC)
today reported that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Broadway Federal Bank, f.s.b.
(the “Bank”), recently completed the sale of approximately $16 million
principal amount of loans, including $13.1 million of non-performing loans.
The non-performing loans represented approximately 31% of the Bank’s estimated
non-performing loans receivable and non-performing loans held for sale as of
December 31, 2012.

The sales were made in cash transactions with two different buyers: a sale of
approximately $14.1 million of single family residential loans, including
approximately $11.8 million of non-performing single family residential loans
representing substantially all of the Bank’s non-performing single family
residential loans, and a separate sale of five church loans with an aggregate
principal balance of approximately $1.8 million, including four non-performing
church loans with an aggregate principal balance of $1.3 million.

The Company does not expect to take any material charge against net income
because of the sale of these loans.

Chief Executive Officer, Wayne-Kent Bradshaw, stated, “These sales represent a
substantial reduction in our non-performing loans, which will significantly
reduce the time and resources that we devote to managing and monitoring
non-performing loans. Furthermore, the sales will allow us to re-focus our
efforts on improving operations, pursuing growth as permitted under our Cease
and Desist Orders, and completing our previously announced Recapitalization.
In addition, we believe that these sales represent a major step in addressing
regulatory requirements for materially reducing our non-performing loans. With
the sales completed, our non-performing loans have been reduced to
approximately $23 million, or 6.4% of total estimated assets, after adjusting
for the sales, as of December 31, 2012.”

Additional information regarding the loan sales will be made available in the
Company’s Form 10-K for 2012, which the Company expects to file in late March.
