PCSB Bank to Go Public


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.

Facebook, Fools, Friends and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Since its inception, Facebook has been a regular target of mockery and criticism—everything from, “Do I really need to see a picture of the pastrami sandwich you had for lunch?” to “Why did you help the Russians get Donald Trump elected?”

No one likes to mock and criticize more than I do—just ask all of my former friends. And while I agree that Facebook can ...

It Was the Economy That Got Trump Elected

I am not easily shocked by much anymore. Yet, I was by last week’s column by fellow columnist Bernie Kosberg. Kosberg, whose column runs regularly in Mahopac News and sometimes in Yorktown News, said in the first paragraph: “Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of ...

God Is Just! Schneiderman Is Out!

Whenever you doubt that God is just, remember last Monday. That is the day New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned.

As you know, I have had him in my sights for a long time. He has squandered our tax dollars with more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration. Plus, his lawsuits against Big Oil and trying to nullify our double jeopardy laws. Most will go nowhere as ...

It Wasn’t About the Economy or Jobs

Soon after President Trump was “crowned” by the Electoral College in November 2016, I wrote a column about Putnam County voters that garnered some attention—both good and bad. Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of suitable jobs, but to the overarching fear ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”

Having had the ...
