OPELOUSAS, La., Sept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — St. Landry Homestead Federal Savings Bank (the «Bank»), a Federally chartered mutual savings bank headquartered in Opelousas, Louisiana, today announced that, in light of the continuing effects of Hurricane Ida on certain areas in Louisiana, the Bank and Catalyst Bancorp, Inc. (the «Company»), the recently formed Louisiana corporation which will become the new holding company for the Bank, have decided to extend the period for the subscription offering of the Company’s common stock from September 8, 2021 until 4:00 p.m., Central Time, on Friday, September 17, 2021. As a result, all orders by eligible account holders, supplemental eligible account holders and other members must now be physically received (not postmarked) by the Company no later than 4:00 p.m., Central Time, on Friday, September 17, 2021.
In addition, the Bank and the Company are commencing the community offering, with a preference given to residents of specified communities served by the Bank.

However, the Company may in its sole discretion and without further notice, elect to close the community offering at an earlier date or time depending upon, among other factors, receipt of orders.
