1st Mariner Bancorp, parent of Baltimore's largest independent bank, reported Tuesday that it lost $2.4 million in the second quarter, or 37 cents per share. That compares with a loss of $469,000, or 7 cents per share, for the corresponding quarter a year ago. Despite the steep loss in the second quarter ended June 30, the company noted that it is smaller than the loss of $3.1 million in the first quarter of this year and the $9.06 million loss in the last quarter of 2008. "It's less bad, but it's hardly good," said banking consultant Bert Ely. "They are still taking losses ... and the losses are not insignificant."

A spokesman at Deutsche Bank's U.S. headquarters in New York declined to speculate on whether there would be more jobs lost at Alex.

Baltimore Bancorp added $25 million yesterday to the $69.6 million loss it had reported for last year's fourth quarter, as a review by federal regulators led the bank to write off even more problem real estate loans.The new write-offs brought the fourth-quarter loss at the parent of the Bank of Baltimore to $94.6 million. The restated loss for the year was $126.5 million. Baltimore Bancorp recorded a $9 million profit in 1990.Elisabeth Albert Hayes, a bank analyst for Chapin, Davis in Baltimore, said the bigger loss means more pressure on the bank's capital levels, which in turn means the company's planned restructuring might have to be more extensive than anticipated.
