Explanatory Note 

Chemung Financial Corporation (the “Corporation”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment Filing”) to revise certain information in a press release (the “Original Earnings Release”) furnished by the Corporation with its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 21, 2016 (the “Original Filing”).

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On July 21, 2016, the Corporation issued the Original Earnings Release and furnished the Original Filing to announce financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.  On July 28, 2016, the Corporation issued an 8-K announcing that it had received Notice of Entry of a decision and order of the New York Supreme Court for the County of Tompkins in the matter of Fane v. Chemung Canal Trust Company and that it would be establishing a legal reserve of $1.2 million in connection with this case as of June 30, 2016.  The 8-K further stated that the previously-furnished press release, dated July 21, 2016, relating to its results of operations and financial condition for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, should not be relied upon in view of this decision and order and that the Corporation would file a correcting and replacing press release on Form 8-K/A on July 29, 2016.

On July 29, 2016, the Corporation issued a press release (the “Revised Release”) to announce revised financial results for the three and six months ended 2016 to reflect the $1.2 million legal reserve, relating to the matter of Fane v. Chemung Canal Trust Company.  The additional non-interest expense relating to the legal reserve and reduction in income tax expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 are described in the Revised Release, which is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
