Betsy Z. Cohen, Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our earnings growth in the third quarter reflected increases both in net interest and non-interest income. These drivers resulted in growth of 35% in net income, 34% in adjusted operating earnings and 18% in earnings per diluted share. Our leadership position in the prepaid card industry is a primary vector of growth and related fee income increased 36% to $10.2 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year quarter. Average deposits for the third quarter grew 31% and reflected growth in all major deposit categories. At September 30, 2013 our portfolio of loans and securities had grown to $3.2 billion, an increase of $675.1 million, or 27% over September 30, 2012. Outstanding loans increased 8% over that period. Asset growth within our targeted lending segments – Small Business Administration (SBA), security backed lines of credit and small fleet leasing – contributed disproportionately. Although total loans increased by 8%, SBA loans grew 85%, security backed lines of credit by 27% and small fleet leasing by 21%. Despite the growth, the Company remains well capitalized, with book value per share increasing 8%, from $8.73 at September 30, 2012 to $9.39 at September 30, 2013.”
