State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
The Company was unable to timely file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2011 without unreasonable effort and expense, because the Company also exerted significant efforts toward (1) completing the $55 million private equity capital raise, which closed on June 29, 2011, and (2) analyzing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern if the Company failed to complete the capital raise. The capital raise initiative was the result of the Company's decision to improve its capital ratios and the Office of Thrift Supervision's Order to Cease and Desist dated February 7, 2011 issued to the Company's primary subsidiary, Carver Federal Savings Bank (the “Bank”), to maintain a Tier 1(Core) Capital ratio equal to or greater than nine percent (9%) and a Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio equal to or greater than thirteen percent (13%) by April 30, 2011. Based on the Company's Financial Condition as of March 31, 2011, the total net capital proceeds have increased the Bank's Tier 1 Core Capital Ratio from 5.38% to approximately 12.43% and its Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio from 9.60% to approximately 19.16%.
