New York Community Bancorp (NYCB) closed a much-awaited transaction on Monday, drawing in individual investments totaling around $1.05 billion from notable entities such as Liberty Strategic Capital, funds managed by Hudson Bay Capital Management, and Reverence Capital Partners, among others.

The bank announced the deal on March 6, after which its share prices dropped by 6%.

Existing board members include DiNello, Marshall Lux, Lawrence Savarese, Peter Schoels, David Treadwell, and Jennifer Whip.
