The "Power of Red is Back" expansion strategy continues to move forward and produce positive results. "Since the launch of our expansion plan we have been able to demonstrate consistent growth in the balance sheet by increasing loans and deposits," said Harry D. Madonna, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Republic First Bancorp, Inc. "We're also seeing significant progress on the income statement as quarterly earnings improved by 130% year over year."

On October 11, 2016 we filed a universal shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This will allow us to issue various types of securities including common stock, preferred stock, debt securities and warrants up to an aggregate amount of $100 million. "We're anticipating the need to raise additional capital in the near future to support our continued growth and expansion plan," said Madonna. "The shelf registration statement will provide us with the financial flexibility necessary to complete that process when the time comes."

During the third quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of Oak Mortgage Company, a residential mortgage lending company based in Marlton, NJ. The acquisition closed on July 28, 2016 and the integration into the Bank's operation has gone exceptionally well.

The Company held a grand opening celebration for its newest store in Moorestown, NJ in September and welcomed new fans throughout the month. Construction also began on a second site in Cherry Hill, NJ which is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2017. Additional locations planned for Medford, Sicklerville and Gloucester Township, New Jersey and Fairless Hills and Feasterville, Pennsylvania are currently in various stages of development.

in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $582 thousand, or $0.02 per
