GOUVERNEUR, N.Y., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles C. Van Vleet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gouverneur Bancorp, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOVB) ("Bancorp" or the "Company") and its subsidiary, Gouverneur Savings and Loan Association (the "Bank"), announced today that the Company's board of directors has declared a semi-annual dividend payment of $0.17 per share for all stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 15, 2016. This dividend will be paid on March 31, 2016.
Mr. Van Vleet commented, "It is with great pleasure that I announce our 33rd consecutive semi-annual dividend paid by the Company. A key reason for Gouverneur Bancorp's success has been its ability to pay more than 16 years of competitive dividends. Cambray Mutual Holding Company, the parent company of Gouverneur Bancorp and majority shareholder of Bancorp stock, has received its third member and regulatory approval to waive its right to dividends, which increases the strength of the Bank."
Founded in 1892, the Bank is a New York State chartered savings and loan association offering a variety of banking products and services to individuals and businesses in its primary market area in southern St. Lawrence and northern Lewis and Jefferson Counties in New York State.
