Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant, Financial Statements and E

Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

On July 2, 2013, Customers Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company"), after review and recommendation of the Company's Audit Committee, appointed BDO USA LLP ("BDO") as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm for and with respect to the year ending December 31, 2013, and dismissed ParenteBeard LLC ("ParenteBeard") from that role. The Company's principal audit personnel at ParenteBeard resigned from ParenteBeard and joined BDO.

The reports of ParenteBeard on the Company's financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of an opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the Company's two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period preceding ParenteBeard's dismissal, there were: (i) no disagreements with ParenteBeard on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of ParenteBeard, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in its reports on the consolidated financial statements of the Company; and (ii) no "reportable events" (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

The Company has provided ParenteBeard with a copy of this Form 8-K prior to its filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and requested ParenteBeard to furnish to the Company a letter addressed to the SEC stating that it agrees with the statements made above. A copy of ParenteBeard's letter dated July 2, 2013 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

During the Company's two most recently completed fiscal years and through the date of the Company's engagement of BDO, the Company did not consult with BDO regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or contemplated transaction, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided by BDO that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or reportable event, as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) or Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, respectively.
