The Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

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

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 increased to $3.6 million compared to $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 56%.

Financial Highlights
  • 21% increase in total revenues to $35.6 million compared to $29.4 million in third quarter 2011.
  • 57% increase in diluted earnings per share to $0.11 for the third quarter of 2012 versus $0.07 for the third quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share amounted to $0.34 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.18 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
  • 85% increase in quarterly prepaid card fees to $7.5 million compared to $4.0 million in third quarter 2011.
  • 67% increase in quarterly non-interest income (including prepaid card fees) to $11.1 million compared to $6.7 million in third quarter 2011 excluding security gains and other than temporary impairment (OTTI).
  • 10% increase in quarterly net interest income to $21.6 million compared to $19.6 million in third quarter 2011. On a linked quarter basis, net interest income grew at an annualized 13% rate, primarily reflecting higher loan income.
  • The linked quarter net interest margin increased to 2.90% from 2.59%.
  • At September 30, 2012 the portfolio of loans and securities had grown to $2.5 billion, an increase of $372 million, or 17% over third quarter 2011. Outstanding loans increased 9% over that period.
  • Average deposits for third quarter 2012 totaled $2.8 billion, an increase of $295 million or 12% over 2011, reflecting growth in all major deposit categories. The interest paid on deposits between those respective periods decreased to 0.37% from 0.45%.

Betsy Z. Cohen, Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Third 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 $11.3 million, a $2.8 million, or 32% 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 9% 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 35% over the past year, to $276 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 $8.09 at September 30, 2011 to $8.73 at September 30, 2012, or an increase of 8%.”

Financial Results

Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $3.6 million or diluted earnings per share of $0.11, based on 33,172,852 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $2.3 million or diluted earnings per share of $0.07, based on 33,203,662 weighted average shares outstanding, for the three months ended September 30, 2011. Adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $11.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $8.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The following is a reconciliation of adjusted operating earnings to net income available to common shareholders (for the three month period):

As a supplement to GAAP, Bancorp has provided this non-GAAP performance result. The Bancorp believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful because it allows investors to assess its operating performance. Management utilizes adjusted operating earnings to measure the combined impact of changes in net interest income, non-interest income and certain other expenses. Other companies may calculate adjusted operating earnings differently. Although this non-GAAP financial measure is intended to enhance investors’ understanding of Bancorp’s business and performance, it should not be considered, and is not intended to be, a substitute for GAAP.
