In order to consummate the offering, new Polonia Bancorp must sell a minimum of 1,301,563 shares. In order to complete the offering, the Board of Directors has determined to increase the maximum purchase limitations in the offering and offer those persons who subscribed for the initial maximum number of shares in the subscription and community offering the opportunity to increase their orders. New Polonia Bancorp will file a prospectus supplement with the Securities and Exchange Commission increasing the maximum purchase limitation from 37,500 shares to 5.0% of the shares sold in the offering (65,078 shares and 76,562 shares at the minimum and midpoint of the offering range, respectively). Following the receipt of any required regulatory approval, the Company may further increase the purchase limitation to 9.99% of the total number of shares to be sold in the offering, provided orders for stock exceeding 5% of the total offering shall not exceed 10% of the offering.

The Company will make a public announcement prior to any extension of the community offering. The community offering, if extended, may be terminated at any time in the Company's sole discretion.
The closing of the offering remains subject to final regulatory, member and shareholder approvals. We expect to close the offering no higher than the midpoint of the offering range.
Orders received in the subscription and community offering will be maintained by new Polonia Bancorp, with interest on subscribers' funds continuing to accrue until completion of the conversion. All eligible subscribers and community members who properly completed and timely submitted a stock order form will have their orders filled in accordance with the terms of the Plan of Conversion.
