NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Carver Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: CARV), the holding company for Carver Federal Savings Bank, today announced that on August 17, 2017, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the exchange has not received the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017. As previously disclosed, the Company is currently out of compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because it did not timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K ("Form 10-K") for the period ended March 31, 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Nasdaq Stock Market letter states that the Company has until September 15, 2017 to submit a plan to regain compliance with its rules.
As previously disclosed, the Company was unable to file its Form 10-K on time because, after consultation with BDO USA, LLP, the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, the Company has determined that it will restate its consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016 and its unaudited interim financial statements for each of the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2015 through December 31, 2016. The filing of the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017 will follow this restatement process.
The Company is working diligently with its auditors and other external advisers to complete the necessary work required to file its Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2017, as well as its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017, with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company intends to notify the Nasdaq Stock Market of such filings as soon as it is practicable.
