Item 8.01 Other Events
On March 5, 2012, Greene County Bancorp, MHC (the “MHC”), the majority shareholder of Greene County Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), received non-objection from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (the “FRB”) to waive the receipt of the Company’s quarterly cash dividends for the quarters ended December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012. The Company previously announced that the MHC had applied to the FRB to waive these dividends.
Although it is the current intention of the Company to continue to pay regular quarterly cash dividends and it is the current intention of the MHC to continue to waive the receipt of any such dividends, there can be no assurance that the FRB will grant its non-objection to dividend waivers beyond any cash dividend paid for the quarter ending March 31, 2012.

Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, general economic conditions, changes in interest rates, regulatory considerations, competition, technological developments, retention and recruitment of qualified personnel, and market acceptance of the Company’s pricing, products and services.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized.
