The Bancorp, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

The Bancorp, Inc. ("Bancorp") (NASDAQ: TBBK), a financial holding company, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2013.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased to $7.3 million compared to $5.2 million in fourth quarter 2012, an increase of 40%. Year to date net income increased to $25.1 million in 2013 from $16.6 million in 2012, an increase of 51%.

Financial Highlights
  • 27% increase in diluted earnings per share to $0.19 for the fourth quarter of 2013 versus $0.15 for the fourth quarter of 2012. The number of shares used in calculating diluted earnings per share increased to 38.3 million from 33.9 million in 2012. On a year to date basis, diluted earnings per share increased to $0.66 in 2013 from $0.50 in 2012, an increase of 32%.
  • 25% increase in total quarterly revenues to $50.5 million compared to $40.3 million in fourth quarter 2012.
  • 21% increase in adjusted operating earnings, a non GAAP measure, to $16.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 versus $13.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.
  • 40% increase in quarterly non-interest income, to $21.2 million compared to $15.1 million in fourth quarter 2012, excluding security gains and other than temporary impairment charges.
  • 20% increase in prepaid card fees to $11.7 million compared to $9.7 million in fourth quarter 2012.
  • 15% increase in quarterly net interest income to $25.4 million compared to $22.1 million in fourth quarter 2012.

Betsy Z. Cohen, Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our earnings growth in the fourth quarter reflected increases both in net interest and non-interest income. These drivers resulted in growth of 40% in net income, 21% in adjusted operating earnings and 27% in earnings per diluted share. Our leadership position in the prepaid card industry is a primary vector of growth and related fee income increased 20% to $11.7 million for the quarter, compared to fourth quarter 2012. Average deposits for the fourth quarter grew 28% between those periods and reflected growth in all major deposit categories. At December 31, 2013 our portfolio of loans and securities had grown to $3.4 billion, an increase of $699.6 million, or 26% over December 31, 2012. Outstanding loans increased 6% 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. Our targeted lines of business grew as follows: SBA loans by 63%, security backed lines of credit by 25% and small fleet leasing by 12%. Book value per share increased 5%, from $9.06 at December 31, 2012 to $9.53 at December 31, 2013.”

Financial Results

Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders for the three months ended December 31, 2013 of $7.3 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.19, based on 38,349,802 weighted average diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $5.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.15, based on 33,921,763 weighted average diluted shares outstanding, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $16.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to $13.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The following is a reconciliation of net income available to common shareholders to adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP measure:

(1)   As a supplement to GAAP, Bancorp has provided this non-GAAP performance measure. 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 net income calculated pursuant to GAAP.

(1) 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.
