Filing Date: July 17, 2014

According to the law firm press release, the Bancorp, Inc. operates as the financial holding company for The Bancorp Bank, which provides various commercial, retail, and related banking products and services to small and mid-size businesses. The Company provides services in Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, and Lehigh counties in Pennsylvania; New Castle County in Delaware; and Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Ocean, and Cape May Counties in New Jersey.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company had under-reserved for loan losses due to adverse loans; (2) Bancorp's operations and credit practices were in violation of the Bank Secrecy Act ("BSA"); and (3) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On April 23, 2014, after the market close, Bancorp announced financial results for the first quarter of 2014, reporting that net income for the period decreased to $298,000, or fully diluted earnings per share of $.01, compared to net income of $7.4 million or $.20 per diluted share for the comparable period in 2013. According to Bancorp's Chief Executive Officer, the quarter was significantly impacted by an additional loan loss provision of $11.8 million principally related to "newly identified adversely classified loans".

On this news, Bancorp shares fell $2.76, or over 15%, to close at $15.84 on April 24, 2014, on unusually heavy trading volume.

On June 10, 2014, the Company filed a Form 8-K with the SEC, announcing that it had entered into a Stipulation and Consent to the Issuance of a Consent Order with the FDIC. The Order became effective on June 5, 2014, and requires the bank to correct the weaknesses in its Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Program.

On this news, shares of Bancorp fell $4.66, or over 28%, on extremely heavy volume, to close at $11.54 on June 11, 2014.

On July 27, 2016, the parties entered into a Stipulation of Settlement. This Settlement was preliminarily approved on August 17. The Settlement was granted final approval, and Final Judgment entered, on December 16, 2016.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
