Greene County Bancorp, Inc. Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend

Stocks in this article: GCBC

Greene County Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:GCBC) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the continuation of the Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.175 per share. The dividend reflects an annual cash dividend rate of $0.70 per share.

The cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 will be paid to shareholders of record as of November 15, 2012 and is expected to be paid on November 30, 2012.

The Company is the majority-owned subsidiary of Greene County Bancorp, MHC (the “MHC”), a federal mutual holding company, which owns 55.1% of the Company’s outstanding common shares. Historically, the MHC has waived its right to receive dividends declared on its shares of the Company’s common stock, and the MHC has waived the receipt of its dividends for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, subject to the non-objection of the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board has adopted interim final regulations that impose significant conditions and restrictions on the ability of mutual holding companies to waive the receipt of dividends from their subsidiaries, and the Board of Directors does not expect that the MHC will obtain the non-objection of the Federal Reserve Board to waive the receipt of its dividends on the Company’s common stock for the September 30, 2012 quarter. Accordingly, it is expected that such dividend will be paid to the MHC. The MHC intends to hold a special meeting of members to vote on a proposal to approve the waiver of future dividends paid by the Company. However, this meeting is not expected to occur in time for the MHC to waive its receipt of the dividend payable for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Greene County Bancorp, Inc. is the direct and indirect holding company, respectively, for The Bank of Greene County, a federally-chartered savings bank, and Greene County Commercial Bank, a New York-chartered commercial bank, both headquartered in Catskill, New York. The Banks serve Greene, Columbia and Albany Counties in New York from twelve full-service branch locations.
