Item 7.01.Regulation FD Disclosure.


In prior years, The Bancorp Bank (the “Bank”), the wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), has securitized certain of its commercial real estate loans.  As previously disclosed by the Company in its periodic filings and investor communications, if these loans are not sold or securitized, they will be held on the balance sheet as interest-earning assets. Currently, the Bank has decided to retain an existing portfolio of commercial real estate loans totaling $1.6 billion on its balance sheet.  Additionally, the Bank is not planning any future securitizations.  


Damian Kozlowski, President of the Bank and CEO of the Company states: “In the 3rd quarter of 2020, we made a strategic determination as to our securitization business. As has been noted in prior Company disclosure and investor communications, we have been evaluating our securitization platform and its loan portfolio. After assessing its current profitability, market conditions and credit risk, we have decided to discontinue future securitization activity. The loan portfolio, comprised almost entirely of multi-family loans that have experienced few deferrals and delinquencies, will amortize over the next 3-5 years and be replaced by loans originated in other areas. We expect income from the portfolio to be stable over the first 2 years. A portion of the portfolio may be sold as whole loans as space is needed on our balance sheet for other lending activities. Additionally, in order to align the reduced securitization activities with our staffing needs, we have engaged in staff reductions. Our real estate team in our commercial SBA business will continue to originate select transactions.”
