PROXY STATEMENT
OF
QUAINT OAK BANCORP, INC.
 
 
ABOUT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS

We are furnishing this proxy statement to holders of common stock of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc., the parent holding company of Quaint Oak Bank. Proxies are being solicited on behalf of our Board of Directors for use at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held at our headquarters located at 501 Knowles Avenue, Southampton, Pennsylvania, 18966 on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 2:00 p.m., Eastern time, and at any adjournment thereof for the purposes set forth in the attached Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders.  This proxy statement is first being mailed to shareholders on or about April 10, 2015.

Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials for the Shareholder Meeting to Be Held on May 13, 2015.  This proxy statement and our 2014 Annual Report are available on our website at www.quaintoak.com/investors/annual-meeting/.

What is the purpose of the annual meeting?

At our annual meeting, shareholders will act upon the matters outlined in the attached Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders, including the election of directors and the ratification of our independent registered public accounting firm.  In addition, management will report on the performance of Quaint Oak Bancorp and respond to questions from shareholders.

Who is entitled to vote?

Only our shareholders of record as of the close of business on the voting record date for the meeting, March 20, 2015, are entitled to vote at the meeting. On the record date, we had 909,719 shares of common stock issued and outstanding and no other class of equity securities outstanding.  For each issued and outstanding share of common stock you own on the record date, you will be entitled to one vote on each matter to be voted on at the meeting, in person or by proxy.

How do I submit my proxy?

After you have carefully read this proxy statement, indicate on your proxy card how you want your shares to be voted.  Then sign, date and mail your proxy card in the enclosed prepaid return envelope as soon as possible.  This will enable your shares to be represented and voted at the annual meeting.

If my shares are held in "street name" by my broker, could my broker automatically vote my shares?

Your broker may not vote on the election of directors, if you do not furnish instructions to your broker.  You should use the voting instruction form provided by the institution that holds your shares to instruct your broker to vote your shares or else your shares may not be voted or may be considered "broker non-votes."

Your broker may vote in his or her discretion on the ratification of the appointment of our independent registered public accounting firm if you do not furnish instructions.  If your broker votes in his or her discretion on proposal two and you did not provide instructions on proposal one, then your shares will be considered "broker non-votes" on the election of directors.

Can I attend the meeting and vote my shares in person?

All shareholders are invited to attend the annual meeting.  Shareholders of record can vote in person at the annual meeting.  If your shares are held in "street name," then you are not the shareholder of record and you must ask your broker or other nominee about how you can vote at the annual meeting.
 
 
 
1

Can I change my vote after I return my proxy card?

Yes.  If you have not voted through your broker or other nominee, there are three ways you can change your vote or revoke your proxy after you have sent in your proxy card.

·First, you may complete and submit a new proxy.  Any earlier proxies will be revoked automatically.

·Second, you may send a written notice to the Secretary of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc., Ms. Diane J. Colyer, Corporate Secretary, Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc., 501 Knowles Avenue, Southampton, Pennsylvania 18966, stating that you would like to revoke your proxy.

·Third, you may attend the annual meeting and vote in person.  Any earlier proxy will be revoked.  However, attending the annual meeting without voting in person will not revoke your proxy.

If your shares are held in street name and you have instructed a broker or other nominee to vote your shares, you must follow directions you receive from your broker or other nominee to change your vote.

What constitutes a quorum?

The presence at the annual meeting, in person or by proxy, of the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock outstanding on the record date will constitute a quorum.  Proxies received but marked as abstentions will be included in the calculation of the number of votes considered to be present at the meeting.

What are the Board of Directors' recommendations?

The recommendations of the Board of Directors are set forth under the description of each proposal in this proxy statement.  In summary, the Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the nominees for director described herein and FOR ratification of the appointment of S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2015.

The proxy solicited hereby, if properly signed and returned to us and not revoked prior to its use, will be voted in accordance with your instructions contained in the proxy.  If no contrary instructions are given, each proxy signed and received will be voted in the manner recommended by the Board of Directors and, upon the transaction of such other business as may properly come before the meeting, in accordance with the best judgment of the persons appointed as proxies.  Proxies solicited hereby may be exercised only at the annual meeting and any adjournment of the annual meeting and will not be used for any other meeting.

What vote is required to approve each item?

Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast with a quorum, a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote represented in person or by proxy, present.  The two persons who receive the greatest number of votes of the holders of common stock represented in person or by proxy at the annual meeting will be elected directors.  Under the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law, abstentions and broker non-votes do not constitute votes cast and will not affect the vote required for the proposal to ratify the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm.

INFORMATION WITH RESPECT TO NOMINEES FOR DIRECTOR,
CONTINUING DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

Election of Directors (Proposal One)

Our Articles of Incorporation provide that the Board of Directors will be divided into three classes as nearly equal in number as the then total number of directors constituting the Board of Directors permits.  The directors are elected by our shareholders for staggered terms, or until their successors are elected and qualified.  At the annual meeting, shareholders of Quaint Oak Bancorp will be asked to elect one class of directors, consisting of two directors, for a three-year term expiring in 2018, and until their successors are elected and qualified.

No director is related to any other director or executive officer by first cousin or closer, except Messrs. Ager and DiPiero who are brothers-in-law.  Each nominee and each director whose term continues currently serves as a director of Quaint Oak Bancorp and its subsidiary, Quaint Oak Bank.

Unless otherwise directed, each proxy executed and returned by a shareholder will be voted for the election of the nominees for director listed below.  If any person named as a nominee should be unable or unwilling to stand for election at the time of the annual meeting, the proxies will nominate and vote for any replacement nominee or nominees recommended by the Board of Directors.  At this time, the Board of Directors knows of no reason why any of the nominees listed below may not be able to serve as a director if elected.

The following tables present information concerning the nominees for director and each director whose term continues, including tenure as a director.  Terms as directors for all directors other than Mr. Clarke include service as a director of Quaint Oak Bank prior to the formation of Quaint Oak Bancorp in 2007.  Ages are reflected as of March 20, 2015.

Committees and Meetings of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Quaint Oak Bancorp has established a Compensation Committee, Audit Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, the Board of Directors of Quaint Oak Bancorp held twelve regular meetings.  No director attended fewer than 75% of the total number of Board meetings and committee meetings on which he served that were held during this period.  The Board of Directors has determined that a majority of its members are independent directors as "independent director" is defined in the Nasdaq listing standards.  Our independent directors are Messrs. Ager, Clarke, DiPiero, Gant, Phillips and Spink. In determining Mr. Ager's independence, the Board considered that Mr. Ager's spouse serves as a non-executive employee of Quaint Oak Bank in her capacity as Assistant Secretary/Deposit Services.

Compensation Committee.  The members of the Compensation Committee are Messrs. Clarke, DiPiero and Phillips, who is Chairman.  The Compensation Committee reviews the compensation of our executive officers and met twice in 2014.  No member of the Compensation Committee is a current or former officer or employee of Quaint Oak Bancorp or Quaint Oak Bank.  The Compensation Committee has adopted a written charter which is available on our website at www.quaintoak.com under the "Investor Relations" heading.

Audit Committee.  The primary purpose of the Audit Committee, as set forth in the committee's charter, is to assist the Board of Directors in fulfilling its fiduciary responsibilities relating to corporate accounting and reporting practices.  The Audit Committee reviews with management and the independent auditors the systems of internal control, reviews the annual financial statements, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K, and monitors our adherence in accounting and financial reporting to generally accepted accounting principles.  The Audit Committee is comprised of three outside directors, Messrs. Gant, Phillips and DiPiero, who is Chairman.  The Board of Directors has not identified a member of the Audit Committee who meets the Securities and Exchange Commission's definition of audit committee financial expert.  The Board of Directors believes that the Audit Committee members have sufficient expertise to fulfill their fiduciary duties.

The Audit Committee meets on an as needed basis and met four times in fiscal 2014.  The Board of Directors and the Audit Committee adopted an Audit Committee Charter which is available on our website at www.quaintoak.com under the "Investor Relations" heading.

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.  The members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of Quaint Oak Bancorp for fiscal 2014 were Messrs. Gant, Phillips and Spink, who is Chairman.  The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee met twice during fiscal 2014.  Nominations for director of Quaint Oak Bancorp are reviewed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and submitted to the full Board of Directors for approval.  The Charter of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is available on our website at www.quaintoak.com under the "Investor Relations" heading.

Board Leadership Structure

Mr. Robert T. Strong serves as our President and Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Robert J. Phillips serves as our Chairman of the Board.  The Board of Directors has determined that the separation of the offices of Chairman of the Board and President enhances Board independence and oversight.  Further, the separation of the Chairman of the Board permits the President and Chief Executive Officer to better focus on his responsibilities of managing the daily operations of Quaint Oak Bancorp, enhancing shareholder value and expanding and strengthening our franchise while allowing the Chairman of the Board to lead the Board of Directors in its fundamental role of providing independent oversight and advice to management.  Mr. Phillips is an independent director under the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.

Board's Role in Risk Oversight

Risk is inherent with every business, particularly financial institutions. We face a number of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, operational risk, strategic risk and reputational risk.  Management is responsible for the day-to-day management of the risks Quaint Oak Bancorp faces, while the Board, as a whole and through its committees, has responsibility for the oversight of risk management.  In its risk oversight role, the Board of Directors ensures that the risk management processes designed and implemented by management are adequate and functioning as designed.  In this regard, the Chairman of the Board meets regularly with management to discuss strategy and risks facing Quaint Oak Bancorp.

Two of our senior executive officers, Mr. Strong and Mr. Augustine, serve on our Board of Directors.  Other members of our senior management attend the Board meetings and are available to address any questions or concerns raised by the Board on risk management or other matters.  Quaint Oak Bank has established an Asset-Liability Committee ("ALCO"), Risk Management Committee and Loan Committee composed of members of the Board and senior management.  The Chairman of the Board and independent directors work together to provide strong, independent oversight of Quaint Oak Bancorp's management and affairs.

Director Compensation

Director Compensation Table.  The following table sets forth total compensation paid to each director of Quaint Oak Bank during fiscal 2014, other than Messrs. Strong and Augustine whose compensation is set forth below under "Executive Compensation."  Quaint Oak Bank does not have a defined benefit pension plan or retirement plan for the benefit of directors.  We did not award any equity shares to our directors in 2014.

Clarke and Gant, as Chairs of Quaint Oak Bank's ALCO Committee and Risk Management Committee, respectively, received $650 per committee meeting.  The other ALCO and Risk Management Committee members are executive officers and did not receive committee meeting fees.  Committee fees are paid only if the meeting is attended.  In addition to the regular annual retainer and meeting fees, the Chairman of the Board received a fee of $2,500 per month during fiscal 2014.

(1)Reflects bonus for the fiscal year, paid in the following fiscal year.

(2)Reflects the grant date fair value in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 for awards of restricted stock and stock options that were granted during the year ended December 31, 2013. The valuation of the restricted stock awards is based on a grant date fair value of $16.20. The assumptions used in valuing the stock option awards are set forth in Note 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

(3)Includes the fair market value, based on a closing price of $19.50 on December 31, 2014, of the shares of Quaint Oak Bancorp common stock and cash dividends allocated to the employee stock ownership plan accounts of Messrs. Strong, Augustine and Schulmeister during fiscal 2014, dividends paid on shares of restricted stock that vested during 2014 and life insurance premiums. All other compensation does not include amounts attributable to other miscellaneous benefits.  The costs to Quaint Oak Bank of providing such benefits did not exceed $10,000.

Narrative to Summary Compensation Table. The Compensation Committee approved a base salary of $255,000 for Mr. Strong in 2014, an increase of $13,000, or 5.4%, over his base salary for 2013.  The dollar amount of his base salary was determined by the Compensation Committee's review of the local market for chief executive officer compensation and was intended to ensure that Quaint Oak Bank remained competitive in attracting and retaining a qualified chief executive officer.  The Compensation Committee approved a bonus pool for all employees for fiscal 2014 which was paid in 2015.  In determining the amount of the bonus pool allocated to Mr. Strong, the Compensation Committee utilized a performance matrix.  The matrix consisted of the following six targets: loan growth; deposit growth; subsidiary production; efficiency ratio; Texas Ratio; and Camel rating, in addition to a limited discretionary amount. The Compensation Committee also considered the awards of restricted stock and grants of stock options to Mr. Strong during the year ended December 31, 2013. In addition, in fiscal 2014, Mr. Strong received dues and membership fees for a local country club as a means of supporting business development.

         At the annual meeting of shareholders of Quaint Oak Bancorp held on May 8, 2013, the shareholders recommended, on an advisory basis, that future advisory votes on executive compensation should be held every three years. Consistent with the shareholder recommendation, the Board of Directors of Quaint Oak Bancorp determined that it will hold an advisory vote on executive compensation every three years. The next advisory vote on the compensation of the named executive officers will be presented at the annual meeting expected to be held in May 2016.

Employment Agreements

Quaint Oak Bank entered into an amended and restated employment agreement with Mr. Strong dated as of December 10, 2008, and an employment agreement with Mr. Augustine dated as of September 14, 2012.  The employment agreements have a three-year term which is automatically extended each year for a successive additional one-year period, unless a party to the agreement gives written notice not less than thirty (30) days nor more than ninety (90) days prior to the annual anniversary date, not to extend the employment term.

The employment agreements provide for minimum base salaries of $220,000 and $154,500 to be paid to Messrs. Strong and Augustine, respectively, which may be increased from time to time by the Board of Directors.  The executives are also eligible for a bonus in such amount as determined by the Board of Directors at their discretion.  The agreements provide for participation in employee benefit plans, currently consisting of life insurance, medical and dental, reimbursement for expenses incurred in performing their duties as officers of Quaint Oak Bank and paid vacation as approved by the Board of Directors.

The employment agreements are terminable with or without cause by Quaint Oak Bank. The executive has no right to compensation or other benefits pursuant to the employment agreement for any period after termination by Quaint Oak Bank for cause, as defined in the agreements.  In the event that the employment agreements are terminated by Quaint Oak Bank other than for cause or by the executives as a result of certain adverse actions which are taken with respect to their employment following a change in control, as defined, of Quaint Oak Bank, then the executives will be entitled to a lump sum cash severance amount equal to 2.99 times their average annual compensation for the last three calendar years, subject to reduction pursuant to Section 280G of the Code, as set forth below.

A change in control is generally defined in the employment agreement to mean a change in the ownership or effective control of Quaint Oak Bancorp or Quaint Oak Bank or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of Quaint Oak Bancorp or Quaint Oak Bank, in each case as provided under Section 409A of the Code and the regulations thereunder.

The employment agreements provide that, in the event any of the payments to be made thereunder are deemed to constitute "parachute payments" within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code, then such payments and benefits shall be reduced by the minimum necessary to result in the payments not exceeding three times the executive's average annual compensation from Quaint Oak Bank that was includable in his gross income during the most recent five taxable years ending prior to the year in which the change in control occurs.  As a result, the severance payment in the event of a change in control will not be subject to a 20% excise tax, and Quaint Oak Bank will be able to deduct such payment as compensation expense for federal income tax purposes.
 
 
10

        In the event that prior to a change in control the employment agreement is terminated by Quaint Oak Bank other than for cause or the executive's death or disability, or by the executive for "good reason," as defined, then Quaint Oak Bank will pay the executive a lump sum cash severance payment equal to three times his current base salary within 30 days following his termination.  Upon his death or disability, Quaint Oak Bank shall pay the executive or his estate or legal representative, a lump sum cash severance payment equal to one times his current base salary within 30 days following the date of termination of employment, plus a lump sum equal to the prorated portion of the bonus that would have been paid if he had remained employed for the full calendar year, based upon the portion of the year that he was able to perform his duties prior to his death or disability.

Retirement Benefits

Retirement benefits are an important element of a competitive compensation program for attracting senior executives, especially in the financial services industry. Our executive compensation program currently includes (i) a 401(k) profit sharing plan which enables our employees to supplement their retirement savings with elective deferral contributions and with matching and discretionary contributions by us, and (ii) an employee stock ownership plan that allows participants to accumulate retirement benefits in the form of employer stock at no current cost to the participant.

401(k) and Profit Sharing Plan.  We adopted the Quaint Oak Bank 401(k) Plan effective May 1, 2012.  To participate in the 401(k) Plan, eligible employees must have completed three months of full time service and attained age 21.  Participating employees may make elective salary reduction contributions of up to $17,500, of their eligible compensation for 2014.  Quaint Oak Bank may contribute a matching contribution to the plan in an amount it determines each year.  We are also permitted to make discretionary profit sharing contributions to be allocated to participant accounts.

Employee Stock Ownership Plan.  In connection with the initial public offering of Quaint Oak Bancorp in July 2007, we established an employee stock ownership plan for our eligible employees. The employee stock ownership plan acquired 111,090 shares of Quaint Oak Bancorp's common stock utilizing a $1.0 million loan from Quaint Oak Bancorp. The original loan to the employee stock ownership plan had a term of 15 years. We may, at our discretion, make additional contributions in the form of debt service which reduces the principal and the term of the loan. Shares are released for allocation to employees' accounts as the debt service payments are made.  Shares released from the suspense account are allocated to each eligible participant's plan account pro rata based on compensation.  Forfeitures may be used for the payment of expenses or be reallocated among the remaining participants. Participants become 100% vested after six years of service or normal retirement age. Participants also become fully vested in their account balances upon a change in control (as defined), death or disability.  Benefits may be payable upon retirement or separation from service.

RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF
INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM (Proposal Two)

Our Audit Committee has appointed S.R. Snodgrass, P.C., independent registered public accounting firm, to perform the audit of Quaint Oak Bancorp's financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2015, and further directed that their selection be submitted for ratification by the shareholders at the annual meeting.

We have been advised by S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. that neither that firm nor any of its associates has any relationship with Quaint Oak Bancorp or Quaint Oak Bank other than the usual relationship that exists between independent registered public accounting firms and their clients.  S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. will have one or more representatives at the annual meeting who will have an opportunity to make a statement, if they so desire, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.

In determining whether to appoint S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. as our independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee considered whether the provision of services, other than auditing services, by S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. is compatible with maintaining their independence.  Each new engagement of S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. was approved in advance by the Audit Committee, and none of those engagements made use of the de minimis exception to pre-approval contained in the SEC's rules.

The Audit Committee selects our independent registered public accounting firm and pre-approves all audit services to be provided by it to Quaint Oak Bancorp.  The Audit Committee also reviews and pre-approves all audit-related and non-audit related services rendered by our independent registered public accounting firm in accordance with the Audit Committee's charter.  In its review of these services and related fees and terms, the Audit Committee considers, among other things, the possible effect of the performance of such services on the independence of our independent registered public accounting firm.  The Audit Committee separately approves other individual engagements as necessary.  The chair of the Audit Committee has been delegated the authority to approve audit-related and non-audit related services in lieu of the full Audit Committee, and presents all such previously-approved engagements to the full Audit Committee.

REPORT OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE

The Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed Quaint Oak Bancorp's audited consolidated financial statements with management.  The Audit Committee has discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm the matters required to be discussed in PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 16, (Communications with Audit Committees).  The Audit Committee has received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent accountant required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent accountant's communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and has discussed with the independent accountant their independence.  Based on the review and discussions referred to above in this report, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited consolidated financial statements be included in Quaint Oak Bancorp's Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than 10% of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc.'s common stock to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by regulation to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.  Other than the Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc. Employee Stock Ownership Plan and Mr. Strong, we know of no person who owns 10% or more of our common stock.

Based solely on review of the copies of such forms furnished to us, or written representations from our officers and directors, we believe that during, and with respect to, fiscal 2014, our officers and directors complied in all respects with the reporting requirements promulgated under Section 16(a).

To:Participants in the Quaint Oak Bank 401(k) Plan and Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc. Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "ESOP")

Re:       Instructions for voting shares of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc.

As described in the enclosed materials, proxies are being solicited in connection with the proposals to be considered at the upcoming Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc.  We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to direct the manner in which shares of common stock of Quaint Oak Bancorp held in your account in the Quaint Oak Bank 401(k) Plan and/or allocated to your account in the Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc. ESOP will be voted.

Enclosed with this letter is the Proxy Statement, which describes the matters to be voted upon, 2014 Annual Report to Shareholders and Voting Instruction Ballot.  After you have reviewed the Proxy Statement, we urge you to vote your allocated shares held in the 401(k) Plan and/or ESOP by marking, dating, signing and returning the enclosed Voting Instruction Ballot(s) to Diane J. Colyer.  Ms. Colyer will tabulate the votes for the purpose of having those shares voted by the Trustees.

We urge each of you to vote, as a means of participating in the governance of the affairs of Quaint Oak Bancorp.  If your voting instructions are not received, the shares held in the 401(k) Plan and/or allocated to your ESOP account will generally not be voted.  While I hope that you will vote in the manner recommended by the Board of Directors, the most important thing is that you vote in whatever manner you deem appropriate.  Please take a moment to do so.

Please note that the enclosed material relates only to those shares which are held in the 401(k) Plan and/or have been allocated to you in your account under the ESOP.  If you also own shares of Quaint Oak Bancorp common stock outside of the 401(k) Plan or ESOP, you should receive other voting material for those shares owned by you individually.  Please return all your voting material so that all your shares may be voted.

Sincerely,
