Annapolis Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANNB), parent company of BankAnnapolis, today repaid one-half of its $8.2 million TARP obligation to the U.S. Treasury.

In a transaction approved by the Federal Reserve, its primary regulator, Annapolis Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) redeemed 4,076 shares of its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, issued to the U.S. Treasury Department under the TARP Capital Purchase Program in January of 2009, at a redemption price of $4,076,000.

“We are very pleased to take this significant step forward, which was made possible by the strength and consistency of our earnings and substantial improvement in our asset quality,” said Richard M. Lerner, Chairman and CEO of Annapolis Bancorp, Inc. and BankAnnapolis. “Ten consecutive profitable quarters have solidified our capital ratios and positioned us to make this pay down without having to raise additional capital through a potentially dilutive stock offering. If trends continue, we fully expect to meet our goal of paying off the balance of our TARP obligation before the scheduled dividend rate increases from 5% to 9% in January of 2014.”

Since receiving the TARP investment, the Company has paid the U.S. Treasury over $1.2 million in preferred stock dividends and has never missed a quarterly dividend payment. “We believe the U.S. Treasury made a sound investment in Annapolis Bancorp and, obviously, it has earned a healthy return on that investment,” said Lerner. “We are proud to have met our obligations to the U.S. taxpayer, and prouder still to be able to free up half of what we have been paying to the Treasury in quarterly preferred stock dividends and now make it available to our common shareholders.”

At March 31, 2012, the Company exceeded all federal regulatory requirements for a well-capitalized institution with a Tier 1 capital ratio of 12.7%, a total capital ratio of 14.0%, and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 9.6%. If today’s TARP redemption had been effective on March 31, 2012, the Company still would have surpassed the regulatory guidelines for a well-capitalized institution, with a Tier 1 capital ratio of 11.5%, a total capital ratio of 12.8%, and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 8.6%.

After completion of the redemption announced today, another 4,076 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, with an aggregate liquidation amount of $4,076,000, together with a warrant to purchase up to 299,706 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $4.08 per share, remain outstanding and held by the Treasury Department.

At March 31, 2012, the Company’s tangible book value per common share was $7.51, and its common stock closed yesterday, April 17, 2012, at a market price of $5.70.
