·3 min read

GOUVERNEUR, N.Y., Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cambray Mutual Holding Company, Gouverneur Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) and Gouverneur Savings and Loan Association (collectively, “Gouverneur”) today announced that Gouverneur and Citizens Bank of Cape Vincent (“CBCV”) have received the requisite regulatory approvals necessary to complete Gouverneur’s acquisition of CBCV and merger of CBCV with and into Gouverneur Savings and Loan Association. The transaction is expected to close on September 16, 2022 and is subject to customary closing conditions.

In addition, unrelated to its pending acquisition of CBCV, the Company also announced today that, in anticipation of the preparation of its financial statements for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022, it has determined that its financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021 understated net income by approximately $200,000 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021 as a result of unrealized deferred tax benefits. The Company expects to correct the error in connection with the preparation and issuance of the Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022.
