  The Bancorp, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Business Wire

WILMINGTON, Del. -- April 24, 2013

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

Net income for the first quarter of 2013 increased to $7.4 million compared to
$4.0 million in the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 86%.

Financial Highlights

  *67% increase in diluted earnings per share to $0.20 for the first quarter
    of 2013 versus $0.12 for the first quarter of 2012. The number of shares
    for diluted earnings per share increased to 37.8 million from 33.1 million
    in 2012.
  *23% increase in total quarterly revenues to $44.5 million compared to
    $36.2 million in first quarter 2012.
  *54% increase in quarterly non-interest income, primarily in prepaid card
    fees, to $18.9 million compared to $12.3 million in first quarter 2012,
    excluding security gains.
  *8% increase in quarterly net interest income to $22.7 million compared to
    $20.9 million in first quarter 2012.
  *At March 31, 2013 our portfolio of loans and securities had grown to $2.9
    billion, an increase of $692 million, or 31% over March 31, 2012.
    Outstanding loans increased 14% over that period.
  *Average deposits for the first quarter, net of terminations, grew 40% and
    reflected growth in all major deposit categories. After consideration of
    those terminations, our other deposits had grown 40% in the first quarter
    compared to the prior year first quarter. *

Betsy Z. Cohen, Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “For the quarter
ending March 31, 2013, Bancorp experienced increased operating earnings of
$17.3 million, an increase of $4.5 million or 35% from the quarter ending
March 31, 2012. This growth was propelled by increases both in net interest
and non-interest income. These drivers resulted in growth of 86% in net
income, 67% in earnings per diluted share and an efficiency ratio of 59% (down
from 66% a year ago). Our leadership position in the prepaid card industry is
the primary vector of growth. However, 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 14%, SBA grew 179%, security backed lines of credit
by 42% and small fleet leasing by 21%. Despite the growth, the Company remains
well capitalized, with book value per share increasing 10%, from $8.41 at
March 31, 2012 to $9.27 at March 31, 2013.”

* First quarter deposits include seasonal deposits from tax refunds.

Financial Results

Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders for the three
months ended March 31, 2013 of $7.4 million, or diluted earnings per share of
$0.20, based on 37,772,122 weighted average diluted shares outstanding,
compared to net income available to common shareholders of $4.0 million, or
diluted earnings per share of $0.12, based on 33,107,037 weighted average
diluted shares outstanding, for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
Adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP measure, increased to $17.3 million
for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $12.9 million for the
three months ended March 31, 2012. The following is a reconciliation of net
income available to common shareholders to adjusted operating earnings, a
non-GAAP measure:

            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
      (1)   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. Management
utilizes the efficiency ratio to measure overhead as a percentage of revenue.
Other companies may calculate the efficiency ratio 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.
