State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Customers Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") has determined that it is not able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 (the "Q3 Form 10Q") within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense for the reasons described herein. The Company requires additional time to complete its financial statements to be filed as part of the Q3 Form 10Q to finalize certain matters regarding the financial statement presentation of cash flow activities associated with its commercial mortgage warehouse lending activities.  As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on November 13, 2018, the Company has determined it necessary to restate its financial statements for certain prior periods to classify commercial mortgage warehouse loans as held for investment rather than held for sale, as previously presented, and cash flow activities associated with these commercial mortgage warehouse lending activities to investing activities from operating activities, as previously presented.  The Company intends to file an amended Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 to present the restated financial statements and related disclosures as soon as practicable.  The Company expects to file the Q3 Form 10Q within the five calendar day extension period provided by Rule 12b-25(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
