SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS TO BE HELD ON MAY 19, 2021

 

This Supplement dated May 3, 2021 amends and supplements the Proxy Statement of The Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) dated April 9, 2021 (the “Proxy Statement”), with the following information.

 

Engagement of Proxy Solicitor

Subsequent to filing the Proxy Statement for its 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on May 19, 2021, the Company engaged D.F. King & Co., Inc., an independent proxy solicitation firm, to assist in soliciting proxies on the Company’s behalf. The Company has agreed to pay a fee of $12,500, plus costs and expenses, for these services.

 

Expenses and Manner of Solicitation

As noted in the Proxy Statement, the cost of soliciting proxies will be borne by the Company.  Directors, officers and regular employees of the Company may solicit proxies either personally, by letter or by telephone, but will not be specifically compensated for soliciting such proxies. The Company will reimburse banks, brokerage firms, other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries for reasonable expenses incurred in sending proxy materials to beneficial owners of the Company’s common shares.
