Item 8.01.Other Events.

 

On December 11, 2019, The Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) was advised by the Federal Reserve Bank, its primary regulator, that the Federal Reserve’s supervisory letter dated May 11, 2015 (the “letter”) has been terminated. The letter had required the Federal Reserve’s pre-approval for the Company’s quarterly payments on its trust preferred securities. The letter had also required Federal Reserve pre-approval for the payment of any potential future dividends on the Company’s common stock and for the issuance of debt.

 

As the letter has been terminated, the requirement for pre-approval for the aforementioned payments or debt issuances has also been terminated. The Company has not paid common stock dividends, but may do so in the future. Funding of any potential future common stock dividend, however, would likely be provided by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, The Bancorp Bank, which itself is subject to a June 2014 FDIC Consent Order (as amended in August 2015) that requires the pre-approval of the FDIC prior to payments to the Company. Please see “Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Regulatory Actions” contained in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "trend," "will," "continue," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "believe," "look forward" or other similar words or terms. Because such statements include risks, uncertainties and contingencies, actual results may differ materially from the expectations, intentions, beliefs, plans or predictions of the future expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that can affect future results include, but are not limited to, those discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition" in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect new or changing information or events after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as may be required by law.
