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 Lakeside Office Park, 607 Lakeside Drive, Southampton, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 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 12, 2010.

Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials for the Shareholder Meeting to Be Held on May 12, 2010.  This proxy statement and our 2009 Annual Report are available on our website at www.quaintoak.com under "Investor Relations."

What is the purpose of the annual meeting?

At our annual meeting, shareholders will act upon the matters outlined in the Notice of Annual Meeting on the cover page of this proxy statement, including the election of directors and 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 29, 2010, are entitled to vote at the meeting. On the record date, we had 1,190,012 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 form how you want your shares to be voted.  Then sign, date and mail your proxy form in the enclosed prepaid return envelope as soon as possible.  This will enable your shares to be represented and voted at the annual meeting.

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

Yes.  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 through a broker, bank, trust or other nominee i.e., in "street" name, then you are not the shareholder of record and you must ask your broker or other nominee how you can vote at the annual meeting.

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 form.

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

·  Second, you may send a written notice to the Secretary of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Ms. Diane J. Colyer, Corporate Secretary, Quaint Oak Bancorp, Lakeside Office Park, 607 Lakeside Drive, 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 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.

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 for such proposal.  You should use the voting instruction card provided by the institution that holds your shares to instruct your broker to vote your shares or else your shares will be considered "broker non-votes."

Broker non-votes are shares held by brokers or nominees as to which voting instructions have not been received from the beneficial owners or the persons entitled to vote those shares and the broker or nominee does not have the discretionary voting power under rules applicable to broker-dealers.  Under these rules, the proposal to elect directors is not an item on which brokerage firms may vote in their discretion on behalf of their clients if such clients have not furnished voting instructions.

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.

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 ParenteBeard LLC for fiscal 2010.

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.

 
2

 
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 three 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.  The affirmative vote of a majority of the total votes present in person and by proxy is required for approval of the proposal to ratify the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm.  Under the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law, an abstention or broker non-vote is not counted as a vote cast and accordingly, will have no effect on the vote to elect directors or ratify the appointment of our independ ent 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 three directors, for a three-year term expiring in 2013, 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 Messrs. Ager, Augustine, DiPiero, Gant, Phillips, Spink and Strong include service as a director of Quaint Oak Bank prior to the formation of Quaint Oak Bancorp.  Ages are reflected as of March 29, 2010.

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, 2009, 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.

Compensation Committee.  The members of the Compensation Committee were Messrs. Clarke, DiPiero and Phillips in fiscal 2009.  The Compensation Committee reviews the compensation of our executive officers and met three times in 2009.  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.

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. DiPiero, Gant and Phillips.  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.

 
6

 
The Audit Committee meets on an as needed basis and met four times in fiscal 2009.  The Board of Directors and the Audit Committee adopted an Audit Committee Charter which is available on our website at www.quaintoak.com.

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.  The members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of Quaint Oak Bancorp for fiscal 2009 were Messrs.

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 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 Stoc k 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) 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 the Company’s management and affairs.

Director Compensation

Members of our Board of Directors receive no compensation for attending meetings of Quaint Oak Bancorp's Board.  During 2009, each director of Quaint Oak Bank other than Mr. Strong received an annual retainer of $4,800 and received $600 for each meeting of the Board of Directors, with one paid absence permitted per year.  For all committees, other than Audit, members received $250 for each committee meeting.  Members of the Audit Committee received $500 per meeting and the Chair received $600.  Mr. Clarke, as Chair of the Asset and Liability Committee ("ALCO"), received $600 per committee meeting.  The other ALCO members, who are executive officers, did not receive committee meeting fees.  Committee fees are paid only if the meetin g is attended.  In addition to the regular annual retainer and meeting fees, the Chairman of the Board received a fee of $2,267 per month during fiscal 2009.

Director Compensation Table.  The following table sets forth total compensation paid to each director of Quaint Oak Bank during fiscal 2009, other than Mr. Strong whose compensation is set forth below under "Executive Compensation."  Mr. Augustine was employed by Quaint Oak Bank as Chief Financial Officer on October 5, 2009 and ceased receiving compensation for Board membership as of the date of hire.  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 2009.

Transactions With Certain Related Persons

Our policies provide that all loans made by Quaint Oak Bank to our directors, officers and employees are made in the ordinary course of business, are made on substantially the same terms, including interest rates and collateral, as those prevailing at the time for comparable loans with persons not related to Quaint Oak Bank and do not involve more than the normal risk of collectability or present other unfavorable features.  All loans made to our directors and executive officers met such criteria.

(1)
Reflects the aggregate grant date fair value computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. The assumptions used in valuing the restricted stock awards and stock option awards are set forth in Note 11 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in our 2009 Annual Report to Shareholders.

(2)Includes the fair market value of the shares of Quaint Oak Bancorp common stock allocated to the employee stock ownership plan accounts of Messrs. Strong and Schulmeister during fiscal 2009 based on a closing price of $8.50 on December 31, 2009,  dividends paid on shares of restricted stock that vested during 2009 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.

The Compensation Committee approved a base salary of $220,000 for Mr. Strong in 2009, which was unchanged from his base salary for 2008.  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 in 2009.  In determining the amount of the bonus pool allocated to Mr. Strong, the Compensation Committee utilized both a performance matrix and considered other notable achievements during 2009.  The matrix consisted of six targets: loan growth, deposit growth, net in come, efficiency ratio, ratio of non-performing loans to gross loans and Camel rating.  In addition, in fiscal 2009, Mr. Strong received dues and membership fees for a local country club as a means of supporting business development.

Employment Agreement

Quaint Oak Bank entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Strong dated as of November 12, 2003.  The employment agreement has a three year term which is automatically extended each year for a successive additional one-year period, unless either party 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.  We amended and restated the employment agreement as of December 10, 2008, in order to comply with final regulations issued by the Internal Revenue Service under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").  Section 409A of the Code governs the deferral of compensation where the director, officer or employee has a legally bi nding right to compensation that is payable in a future year.  Section 409A imposes restrictions with respect to deferral elections, payment events and payment elections.

The employment agreement provides for a minimum base salary of $220,000 to be paid to Mr. Strong, which may be increased from time to time by the board of directors.  Mr. Strong is also eligible for a bonus in such amount as determined by the board of directors at their discretion.  The agreement also provides that Mr. Strong may participate in employee benefit plans, currently consisting only of life insurance, shall be reimbursed for expenses incurred in performing his duties as President and Chief Executive Officer and shall be entitled to four weeks of paid vacation each year and ten days of paid sick leave subject to such increases as the board of directors may approve.

 
10

 
The employment agreement is 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 agreement.  In the event that the employment agreement is terminated by Quaint Oak Bank other than for cause or by Mr. Strong as a result of certain adverse actions which are taken with respect to his employment following a change in control, as defined, of Quaint Oak Bank, then Mr. Strong will be entitled to a lump sum cash severance amount equal to 2.99 times his 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 agreement provides 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 Mr. Strong'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.

In the event that prior to a change in control the employment agreement is terminated by Quaint Oak Bank other than for cause or Mr. Strong's death or disability, or by Mr. Strong for "good reason," as defined, then Quaint Oak Bank will pay Mr. Strong 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 Mr. Strong or his estate or legal representative, a lump sum cash severance payment equal to one times his current base salary within 30 days following his termination, 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.

Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End

Quaint Oak Bancorp made awards of restricted stock and grants of stock options during fiscal 2008 to its executive officers and other employees, which began vesting in 2009.  The table below sets forth outstanding equity awards at December 31, 2009 to our named executive officers.

(1)Based upon filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission and information furnished by the respective individuals.  Under regulations promulgated pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, shares of common stock are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if he or she directly or indirectly has or shares (a) voting power, which includes the power to vote or to direct the voting of the shares, or (b) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or to direct the disposition of the shares.  Unless otherwise indicated, the named beneficial owner has sole voting and dispositive power with respect to the shares. Under applicable regulations, a person is deemed to have beneficial ownership of any shares of common stock which may be acquired within 60 days of the record date pursuant to the exercise of outstanding stock options. Shares of common stock which are subject to st ock options are deemed to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of outstanding common stock owned by such person or group but not deemed outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of common stock owned by any other person or group.

(2)Each beneficial owner's percentage ownership is determined by assuming that options held by such person (but not those held by any other person) and that are exercisable within 60 days of the voting record date have been exercised.

(3)Based on information obtained from an amended Schedule 13G filed by Black River BancVenture, Inc. with the SEC on March 26, 2010.  Black River BancVenture, Inc. reported sole voting and dispositive power with respect to the 117,712 shares.

In general, the allocated shares held in the plan trust as of March 29, 2010, will be voted by the plan trustees in accordance with the instructions of the participants. Any unallocated shares are generally required to be voted by the plan trustees in the same proportion as shares which have been allocated to participants are directed to be voted, subject to each case to the fiduciary duties of the plan trustees and applicable law.  The amount of our common stock beneficially owned by officers who serve as plan trustees and by all directors and executive officers as a group does not include the shares held by the plan trust other than shares specifically allocated to the individual officer’s account.

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. 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 2009, our officers and directors complied in all respects with the reporting requirements promulgated under Section 16(a).


REPORT OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE

The Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed Quaint Oak Bancorp's audited financial statements with management.  The Audit Committee has discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm the matters required to be discussed by the statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, as amended (AICPA, Professional Standards, Vol. 1, AU section 380), as adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T.  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 financial statements be included in Quaint Oak Bancorp's Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

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

On October 1, 2009, Quaint Oak Bancorp was notified that the audit practice of Beard Miller Company LLP, Quaint Oak Bancorp's independent registered public accounting firm, was combined with ParenteBeard LLC in a transaction pursuant to which Beard Miller Company LLP combined its operations with ParenteBeard LLC and certain of the professional staff and partners of Beard Miller Company LLP joined ParenteBeard LLC either as employees or partners of ParenteBeard LLC.  As a result of the combination, on October 1, 2009, Beard Miller Company LLP resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm of Quaint Oak Bancorp, and with the approval of the Audit Committee of Quaint Oak Bancorp's Board of Directors, ParenteBeard LLC was engaged as Quaint Oak Bancorp's independent regi stered public accounting firm.

During the two years ended December 31, 2008 and from December 31, 2008 through engagement of ParenteBeard LLC as Quaint Oak Bancorp's independent registered public accounting firm, neither Quaint Oak Bancorp nor anyone on its behalf consulted ParenteBeard LLC with respect to any accounting or auditing issues involving Quaint Oak Bancorp.

 
14

 
Our Audit Committee has appointed ParenteBeard LLC, independent registered public accounting firm, to perform the audit of Quaint Oak Bancorp's financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2010, and further directed that their selection be submitted for ratification by the shareholders at the annual meeting.

We have been advised by ParenteBeard LLC 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.  ParenteBeard LLC 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 ParenteBeard LLC as our independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee considered whether the provision of services, other than auditing services, by ParenteBeard LLC is compatible with maintaining their independence.  In addition to performing auditing services, ParenteBeard LLC , as Beard Miller Company LLP, performed tax-related services, including the completion of Quaint Oak Bancorp's corporate tax returns in 2009 and 2008.  The Audit Committee believes that ParenteBeard LLC 's performance of these other services is compatible with maintaining their independence.

Audit Fees

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 authorit y 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.

The following table sets forth the aggregate fees paid by us to Beard Miller Company LLP for professional services rendered in connection with the audit of Quaint Oak Bancorp's consolidated financial statements for 2009 and 2008, as well as the fees paid by us to Beard Miller Company LLP for audit-related services, tax services and all other services rendered to us during 2009 and 2008.

    Each new engagement of Beard Miller Company LLP 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 Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the ratification of the appointment
of ParenteBeard LLC as our independent registered public accounting firm
for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2010.
