October 29, 2020 5:17 PM

The Bancorp (NASDAQ: TBBK) reported Q3 EPS of $0.40, $0.03 better than the analyst estimate of $0.37.


Damian Kozlowski, The Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continued to add new card programs into our payments ecosystem in the 3rd quarter, as well as adding several new direct rapid funds partners. These new relationships will be announced as new products and services enter the marketplace. Our pipelines continue to be very robust and significantly above historic norms suggesting continued growth in transaction volumes. In the 3rd quarter, we made a strategic determination as to our securitization business. 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. Our real estate team in our commercial SBA business will continue to originate select transactions. For full year 2020, we believe we will achieve at least $1.25 earnings per share. We now believe we have enough information to issue preliminary guidance for 2021. We expect to earn between $1.65 and $1.70 per share. $1.70 per share or approximately $100 million in net income is our current company budget for 2021.”
