As previously disclosed, Carver Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") and its auditor, BDO USA, LLP, were reviewing the reconciliation of certain general ledger accounts and the potential impact on the Company's current and previously issued financial statements. The Company has filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2017 and its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017. The Company is working diligently to prepare its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017 and will file as soon as practicable. The Company anticipates that it will be able to file the Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017 on or before the fifth calendar day following the required filing date as prescribed by Rule 12b-25(b).

(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If the answer is no, identify report(s).
ý Yes o No
3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operation from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
ýYes o No
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
The Company's audited results as of and for the year ended March 31, 2016, as well as the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information for the quarterly periods in 2017 and 2016 were restated in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2017 (the "Restatement"). The Restatement corrected material errors related to reconciling items that were identified as uncollectable that should have been written off in prior periods, as well as adjustments related to loan system maintenance items and payment applications that were not timely processed by Carver Federal Savings Bank on to its core provider system. In addition to these errors, adjustments were made related to other individually immaterial errors including certain corrections that had been previously identified but not recorded because they were not material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. These corrections included adjustments to other liabilities, interest expense and certain reclassification entries. The Company has determined the cumulative impact of the Restatement and error corrections on the quarter ended September 30, 2016 and has disclosed this information in its fiscal year 2017 Form 10-K. Restated financials for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, on which there was a de minimis effect, will be reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements and disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements in the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017. The cumulative impact on the six months ended September 30, 2016 was an increase of $82 thousand in net loss, which will also be reflected in the consolidated financial statements and notes.
