The Bancorp, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

The Bancorp, Inc. ("Bancorp") (NASDAQ: TBBK), a financial holding company, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Financial Highlights
  • Net income for the second quarter of 2012 increased to $3.9 million compared to $660,000 in the second quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share increased to $0.12 versus $0.02, respectively, for those periods. Diluted earnings per share amounted to $0.24 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.11 for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Key factors driving these results were:
  • 61% increase in quarterly prepaid card fees to $7.1 million compared to $4.4 million in second quarter 2011.
  • 14% increase in quarterly net interest income to $20.9 million compared to $18.3 million in second quarter 2011.
  • 47% increase in quarterly non-interest income (including prepaid card fees) to $10.6 million compared to $7.2 million in second quarter 2011 excluding security gains and other than temporary impairment (OTTI).
  • At June 30, 2012 the portfolio of loans and securities had grown to $2.4 billion, an increase of $360 million, or 18% over second quarter 2011. Outstanding loans increased 7% over that period.
  • Average deposits for second quarter 2012 totaled $3.1 billion, an increase of $732 million or 31% over 2011, reflecting growth in all major deposit categories. The interest paid on deposits between those respective periods decreased to 0.37% from 0.50%.

Betsy Z. Cohen, Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Second quarter 2012 saw a continuation in our earnings growth as a result of significant increases in both our non-interest and net interest income. Adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $10.8 million, a $3.1 million, or 40% increase over the comparable prior year period. Our position as a leader in the prepaid card space continues to drive the increase in non-interest income. On the asset side, we grew our loans 7% over the year in a difficult lending environment. We continue to target what we believe to be lower risk assets including Small Business Administration (SBA) loans, security backed lines of credit and vehicle fleet leasing. Consumer loans, primarily security backed lines of credit, grew 28% over the past year, to $256 million. Due to the historically demonstrated strength of related collateral, losses on security backed loans have been virtually non-existent. The Company is well capitalized, and book value per share increased from $7.90 at June 30, 2011 to $8.54 at June 30, 2012, or an increase of 8%.”
