Hanover Bancorp Approves New Share Repurchase Program

MINEOLA, N.Y., Oct. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanover Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HNVR) (the “Company”), parent company of Hanover Community Bank (the “Bank”), announced that its Board of Directors has approved a Share Repurchase Program. Under this program, the Company may repurchase up to 366,050 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding common stock. The timing and amount of purchases will be dictated by a number of factors.

Under the Share Repurchase Program, repurchases will be made from time to time by the Company in the open market as conditions allow, or in privately negotiated transactions. All or part of the repurchases may be implemented under a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, which would allow repurchases under pre-set terms at times when the Company might otherwise be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed blackout periods.

Except in the case of repurchases under a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, the volume, nature, price and timing of the repurchases are at the sole discretion of management, dependent on the stock price, market conditions, applicable securities laws including SEC Rule 10b-18, corporate and regulatory requirements, capital and liquidity needs or other factors. The Board of Directors may suspend, discontinue, terminate, modify, cancel or extend the Share Repurchase Program at any time and for any reason.

Michael P. Puorro, Chairman and CEO, remarked “We are pleased to announce the approval of this share repurchase program, which reflects our commitment to returning value to our shareholders. While this repurchase program is a testament to our strong capital base, we will proceed cautiously with regards to capital management to ensure we remain well positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities that may arise.”
