NEW YORK, July 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carver Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:CARV), the holding company for Carver Federal Savings Bank, today announced that on July 15, 2016, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the Company is not in 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, 2016 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

As previously disclosed, the Company was unable to file its Form 10-K on time because the Company will restate its consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015 and each of the quarters of 2015 and 2016, after consultation with KPMG LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
