Item 3.01.  Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On May 18, 2018, The Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") received notification from the Listing Qualifications department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that the Company had previously failed Nasdaq's audit committee composition requirement under Rule 5605(c)(2)(A)(iii) (the "Rule"), which requires, in part, that each audit committee member must not have participated in the preparation of the financial statements of such company or any subsidiary at any time during the past three years.  Mr. John C. Chrystal, a current director of the Company and a former member of the Company's audit committee (the "Audit Committee"), served as the Company's Interim Chief Executive Officer from January to June 2016, and in such role was deemed to have participated in the preparation of the Company's financial statements during that time.  Mr. Chrystal was appointed to the Audit Committee on January 1, 2018, but resigned as a committee member on May 14, 2018 as a result of the Rule.

The letter from Nasdaq acknowledges that the Company regained compliance with the Rule upon Mr. Chrystal's May 14 resignation from the Audit Committee.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
