COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Oct. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank ("IIB" or the "Bank") (OTC BB:IIBK), announced IIB's consolidated unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Mr. Gustavel reported that IIB's net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, was $1.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.0 million, or $(0.61) per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. IIB's net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $1.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.9 million, or $(0.72) per diluted share, for the same nine-month period of 2012. Chairman Gustavel stated, "We are pleased to report significant improvement in asset quality and positive earnings for the fourth consecutive quarter."

The Bank's total assets as of September 30, 2013, increased $52.7 million, or 11.6%, to $505.7 million from $453.0 million at September 30, 2012. Deposits and repurchase agreements increased $49.7 million, or 12.9%, to $434.1 million from $384.4 million at September 30, 2012. Total loans decreased $8.8 million since September 2012 but that decrease included a $12.7 million reduction in nonperforming loans. Also, during that same time frame, other real estate owned decreased $5.4 million. IIB's reserve for loan losses was $5.8 million as of the end of the quarter, or 2.6% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, while net charge-offs for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, were only $9,000.

The Bank's income tax expense for the quarter was offset by a reduction in its valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets. As of September 30, 2013, the Bank still carried a valuation allowance of $8.4 million that may be used to reduce future income tax expenses.

The Bank's capital ratios continue to exceed the thresholds required to be considered "Well-Capitalized" under regulatory guidelines. The Bank's Tier One Capital Ratio and Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio were 11.2% and 16.2%, respectively, at September 30, 2013.

IIB filed its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, (the "Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on October 21, 2013. The Call Report is available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at http://cdr.ffiec.gov/Public/.
