MAHOPAC, N.Y.— PCSB Bank, a mutual savings bank, will convert to a state-chartered stock savings bank pending state and federal approval, the company announced in a press release.

As part of the conversion, which was unanimously approved by its Board of Trusteers, PCSB Bank will become the wholly owned subsidiary of a new corporation, named PCSB Financial Corporation, which will become the bank holding company of PCSB Bank.

PCSB Financial Corporation will offer shares of common stock for sale to eligible depositors of PCSB Bank and others in a subscription offering. The amount of common stock to be offered for sale will be determined by an independent appraisal. The bank's “Plan of Conversion” establishes Sept. 30, 2015, as the eligibility record date for determining the eligible depositors of PCSB Bank entitled to first priority non-transferable subscription rights to subscribe for shares of common stock in the subscription offering. If any shares of common stock remain unsold after the completion of the subscription offering, the unsold shares may be offered for sale in a community offering, a syndicated community offering and/or a firm commitment offering.

The conversion plan also provides for the establishment of a charitable foundation that will be funded with shares of common stock of PCSB Financial Corporation and cash. The charitable foundation will be dedicated to supporting charitable causes and community development activities in the communities in which PCSB Bank operates.

The bank's plans are subject to regulatory approval by the New York State Department of Financial Services, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, as well as the approval of depositors of PCSB Bank.

A prospectus and/or proxy statement containing detailed information about the conversion plan, the stock offering and business, and financial information about PCSB Financial Corporation and PCSB Bank will be sent to depositors of PCSB Bank when available, which is currently anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2017.

PCSB Bank (formerly Putnam Savings Bank) opened in 1871. It operates from its executive offices, headquarters and 15 branch offices located in Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties.

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

Cuomo’s Frivolous Lawsuits Cost Us Money

Since Donald Trump became president, New York State has filed more than 100 lawsuits against the federal government. This includes those filed by both Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It does not include lawsuits filed by the City of New York. Most of them are political in nature, filed to please the plaintiffs’ voting base. In the real world, if we had filed ...

Beautiful, 'Clean' Coal

After completing his first full year in office—an alarming year, at that— Donald Trump has concluded that climate change is not a significant national threat and that the sacred lands and waters of this country should be sold to the highest bidder. 

The Trump administration has withdrawn from the Paris climate agreement; deregulated national landmarks; freed public lands for ...

Multigrain, Please

I have no craving for white bread; it’s too plain, predictable and tasteless for me. I hunger for a chunk of multigrain or rye, maybe even a good-sized piece of pumpernickel raisin, with a schmear of cream cheese on the side.

I have no appetite for bland, clean-cut, middle-of-the-road, isolationist politics. And I find unsettling the cultural sameness, gross consumerism and incurious ...

I Love 'I Hate Halet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

Bazzo Needs to Get His Facts Straight

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

Once again Mr. Bazzo, in his Feb. 8, column cherry picks facts, ignores other facts, passes along lies and spins so fast to the right that it’s amazing he doesn’t drill himself into the earth.

Bazzo is correct—the economy is doing well, and we should give credit where credit is due. Thank you, President Obama for taking the economy from the brink of another ...
