DELMAR BANCORP

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1. Nature of Business and Its Significant Accounting Policies

Delmar Bancorp is a bank holding company which owns all the outstanding shares of capital stock of The Bank of Delmarva, a commercial bank operating in Wicomico and Worcester counties in Maryland, Sussex County in Delaware, and Camden and Burlington counties in New Jersey. The Bank provides financial services to individual and corporate customers, and is subject to competition from other financial institutions. The Bank is also subject to the regulations of certain Federal and state agencies and undergoes periodic examinations by those regulatory authorities. The accounting policies of the Bank conform to generally accepted accounting principles and practices within the banking industry.

Significant accounting policies not disclosed elsewhere in the consolidated financial statements are as follows:

Principles of Consolidation:

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Delmar Bancorp, a bank holding company (the Company); its wholly owned subsidiary — The Bank of Delmarva (the “Bank”), a commercial bank engaged in general commercial banking operations in Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey; Delmarva Real Estate Holdings, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bank of Delmarva, which is a real estate holding company; Davie Circle, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bank of Delmarva, which is a real estate holding company; Delmarva BK Holdings, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bank of Delmarva, which is a real estate holding company; DHB Development, LLC, of which the Bank holds a 40.55% interest, and is a real estate holding company; West Nithsdale Enterprises, LLC, of which the Bank holds a 10% interest, and is a real estate holding company; and FBW, LLC, of which the Bank holds 50% interest, and is also a real estate holding company. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Financial Statement Presentation:

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements do not include all information and notes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, changes in stockholder's equity, and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the results of its operations and its cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019, or for any other period.

Use of Estimates:

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted within the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Adoption of New Accounting Standard:

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases", utilizing the effective date method under the modified retrospective approach. The Company currently leases seven of its office leases under operating leases and one under a finance lease. The Company's present value of future lease payments, measured on a discounted

8

basis, as of January 1, 2019 was $3.6 million, which was recorded as a right-of-use asset included in other assets with an offsetting liability included in other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet. Additional disclosures related to lease commitments are provided in Note 5.

Securities Available for Sale:

Marketable debt and equity securities not classified as held to maturity are classified as available for sale. Securities available for sale are acquired as part of the Bank's asset/liability management strategy and may be sold in response to changes in interest rates, loan demand, changes in prepayment risk, and other factors. Securities available for sale are carried at fair value as determined by quoted market prices. Unrealized gains or losses based on the difference between amortized cost and fair value are reported in other comprehensive income, net of deferred tax. Realized gains and losses, using the specific identification method, are included as a separate component of other income (expense) and, when applicable, are reported as a reclassification adjustment, net of tax, in other comprehensive income. Premiums and discounts are recognized in interest income using the interest method over the period to maturity. Additionally, declines in the fair value of individual investment securities below their cost that are other than temporary are reflected as realized losses in the consolidated statements of income.

Loans and the Allowance for Credit Losses:

Loans are generally carried at the amount of unpaid principal, adjusted for unearned loan fees, which are amortized over the term of the loan using the effective interest rate method. Interest on loans is accrued based on the principal amounts outstanding. It is the Bank's policy to discontinue the accrual of interest when a loan is specifically determined to be impaired or when principal or interest is delinquent for ninety days or more. When a loan is placed on nonaccrual status, all interest previously accrued but not collected is reversed against current period interest income. Interest income generally is not recognized on specific impaired loans unless the likelihood of further loss is remote. Cash collections on such loans are applied as reductions of the loan principal balance and no interest income is recognized on those loans until the principal balance has been collected. Interest income on other nonaccrual loans is recognized only to the extent of interest payments received. The carrying value of impaired loans is based on the present value of the loan's expected future cash flows or, alternatively, the observable market price of the loan or the fair value of the collateral.

The allowance for loan losses is maintained at a level believed adequate by management to absorb probable losses inherent in the loan portfolio and is based on the size and current risk characteristics of the loan portfolio, an assessment of individual problem loans and actual loss experience, the value of the underlying collateral, and current economic events in specific industries and geographical areas, including unemployment levels, and other pertinent factors, including regulatory guidance and general economic conditions. Determination of the allowance is inherently subjective, as it requires significant estimates, including the amounts and timing on historical loss experience, and consideration of current economic trends, all of which may be susceptible to significant change. Loan losses are charged off against the allowance, while recoveries of amounts previously charged off are credited to the allowance. A provision for credit losses is charged to operations based on management's periodic evaluation of the factors previously mentioned, as well as other pertinent factors. Evaluations are conducted at least monthly and more often if deemed necessary.

The allowance for credit losses typically consists of an allocated component and an unallocated component. The allocated component of the allowance for credit losses reflects expected losses resulting from analyses developed through specific credit allocations for individual loans and historical loss experience for each loan category.

The specific credit allocations are based on regular analyses of all loans over a fixed‑dollar amount where the internal credit rating is at or below a predetermined classification. The historical loan loss element is determined statistically using a loss migration analysis that examines loss experience and the related internal gradings of loans charged off over a current 3 year period. The loss migration analysis is performed quarterly and loss factors are updated regularly based on actual experience. The allocated component of the allowance for credit losses also includes consideration of concentrations and changes in portfolio mix and volume.

9

Any unallocated portion of the allowance reflects management's estimate of probable inherent but undetected losses within the portfolio due to uncertainties in economic conditions, delays in obtaining information, including unfavorable information about a borrower's financial condition, the difficulty in identifying triggering events that correlate perfectly to subsequent loss rates, and risk factors that have not yet manifested themselves in loss allocation factors. In addition, the unallocated allowance includes a component that explicitly accounts for the inherent imprecision in loan loss migration models. The historical losses used in the migration analysis may not be representative of actual unrealized losses inherent in the portfolio. It is management's intent to continually refine the methodology for the allowance for credit losses in an attempt to directly allocate potential losses in the loan portfolio under ASC Topic 310 and minimize the unallocated portion of the allowance for credit losses.

Loan Charge‑off Policies

Loans are generally fully or partially charged down to the fair value of securing collateral when:

-

management deems the asset to be uncollectible

-

repayment is deemed to be made beyond the reasonable time frames

-

the asset has been classified as a loss by internal or external review

-

the borrower has filed bankruptcy and the loss becomes evident owing to a lack of assets

Acquired Loans

Loans acquired in connections with business combinations are recorded at their acquisition‑date fair value with no carry over of related allowance for credit losses. Any allowance for loan loss on these pools reflect only losses incurred after the acquisition (meaning the present value of all cash flows expected at acquisition that ultimately are not to be received). Determining the fair value of the acquired loans involves estimating the principal and interest cash flows expected to be collected on the loans and discounting those cash flows at a market rate of interest. Management considers a number of factors in evaluating the acquisition‑date fair value including the remaining life of the acquired loans, delinquency status, estimated prepayments, payment options and other loan features, internal risk grade, estimated value of the underlying collateral and interest rate environment.

Acquired loans that met the criteria for nonaccrual of interest prior to the acquisition may be considered performing upon acquisition, regardless of whether the customer is contractually delinquent, if we can reasonably estimate the timing and amount of the expected cash flows on such loans and if we expect to fully collect the new carrying value of the loans, including the impact of any accretable yield.

Loans acquired with deteriorated credit quality are accounted for in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 310‑30, Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality (ASC 310‑30) if, at acquisition, the loans have evidence of credit quality deterioration since origination and it is probable that all contractually required payments will not be collected. At acquisition, the Company considers several factors as indicator that an acquired loan has evidence of deterioration in credit quality. These factors include; loans 90 days or more past due, loans with an internal risk grade of substandard or below, loans classified as non‑accrual by the acquired institution, and loans that have been previously modified in a troubled debt restructuring.

Under the ASC 310‑30 model, the excess of cash flows expected to be collected at acquisition over recorded fair value is referred to as the accretable yield and is the interest component of expected cash flow. The accretable yield is recognized into income over the remaining life of the loan if the timing and/or amount of cash flows expected to be collected can be reasonable estimated (the accretion method). If the timing or amount of cash flows expected to be collected cannot be reasonably estimated, the cost recovery method of income recognition is used. The difference between the loan's total scheduled principal and interest payment over all cash flows expected to be collected at acquisition, considering the impact of prepayments, is referred to as the non‑accretable difference. The non‑accretable

10

difference represents contractually required principal and interest payments which the Company does not expect to collect.

Over the life of the loan, management continues to estimate cash flows expected to be collected. Decreases in expected cash flows are recognized as impairments through a charge to the provision for loan losses resulting in an increase in the allowance for loan losses. Subsequent improvements in cash flows result in first, reversal of existing valuation allowances recognized subsequent to acquisition, if any, and next, an increase in the amount of accretable yield to be subsequently recognized as interest income on a prospective basis over the loan's remaining life.

Acquired loans that were not individually determined to be purchased with deteriorated credit quality are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310‑20, Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs (ASC 310‑20), whereby the premium or discount derived from the fair market value adjustment, on a loan‑by‑loan or pooled basis, is recognized into interest income on a level yield basis over the remaining expected life of the loan or pool.

Other Real Estate Owned (OREO):

OREO comprises properties acquired in partial or total satisfaction of problem loans. The properties are recorded at the lower of cost or fair value at the date acquired. Losses arising at the time of acquisition of such properties are charged against the allowance for credit losses. Subsequent write‑downs that may be required and expenses of operation are included in other expenses. Gains and losses realized from the sale of OREO are included in other income. At September 30, 2019 there were seven properties with a combined estimated value of $3.6 million included in other real estate owned, and at December 31, 2018 there were nine properties with a combined estimated value of $3.7 million.

Intangible Assets and Amortization:

During the first quarter of 2018 the Bank acquired Liberty Bell Bank. ASC 350, Intangibles‑Goodwill and Other (ASC 350), prescribes accounting for intangible assets subsequent to initial recognition. Acquired intangible assets (such as core deposit intangibles) are separately recognized if the benefit of the assets can be sold, transferred, licensed, rented, or exchanged, and amortized over their useful lives. Intangible assets related to the acquisition are amortized (see Note 12).

Accounting for Stock Based Compensation:

The Company follows ASC 718‑10, Compensation — Stock Compensation for accounting and reporting for stock‑based compensation plans. ASC 718‑10 defines a fair value at grant date to be used for measuring compensation expense for stock‑based compensation plans to be recognized in the statement of income.

Earnings Per Share:

Basic earnings per common share are determined by dividing net income adjusted for preferred stock dividends declared and/or accumulated and accretion of warrants by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for each year, giving retroactive effect to stock splits and dividends. Calculations of diluted earnings per common share include the average dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding during the year, unless they are anti‑dilutive. Dilutive common equivalent shares consist of stock options calculated using the treasury stock method and restricted stock awards (See Note 8).
