PART III - NARRATIVE
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.
As previously disclosed, Carver Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") and its auditor, BDO USA, LLP, are 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 been working diligently to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2017. Upon filing the Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2017, the Company will file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017 as soon as practicable, but does not expect that it will be filed timely as prescribed on or before the fifth calendar day following the required filing date as prescribed by Rule 12b-25(b) because the Company requires additional time to finalize its audited financial statements.
Although no assurance can be given as to when such audit work can be completed, the Company intends to become current in its financial reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as soon as practicable.
PART IV - OTHER INFORMATION

If the answer is no, identify report(s).
☐Yes ☒ No
The Company has not filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2017.
(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?
☒ Yes ☐ 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 continues to review certain items adjusted in fiscal 2017 that it believes are more appropriately accounted for in the prior periods. Until the review is completed, the impact on the prior quarterly periods cannot be reasonably estimated.
