CU System
Former Coastway CU applies for stock IPO
CRANSTON, R.I. (4/5/12)--Coastway Community Bank, which converted from Coastway CU to a banking charter in 2009, is seeking regulators' approval to form a depositor-governed mutual holding company.

Creating a mutual holding company typically allows banks to shift to stock ownership through an initial public offering (IPO). A Coastway release said the mutual holding company would be a separate legal entity that would own and control the bank as a subsidiary (Providence Business News April 4).

Depositors will vote on Coastway's plan later this month. The reorganization would then become subject to approval by the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation.

Coastway stated it intends to use the reorganization to expand financial products and services, expand its capital base and establish relationships with other banks and financial service providers.
