NEW YORK -- Dime Savings Bank of New York said it filed with the Office of Thrift Supervision for a public offering of $100 million of noncumulative preferred stock.

The bank said it intended the stock to qualify as Tier I equity for regulatory capital purposes.

Dime said that as of June 30, its leverage-capital ratio was 5.53% and its risk-based ratio was 9.29%, each greater than OTS requirements for that date. The bank said it must meet a 10% risk-based capital-ratio target by Dec. 31, 1994.
