INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On February 20, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis ("FHLBI") declared dividends on Class B-1 and Class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 3.50% and 2.80%, respectively. In addition, the Board declared supplemental dividends for the quarter on Class B-1 and Class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 2.00% and 1.60%, respectively. These dividends will be paid in cash on February 21, 2014.
"We are pleased to have completed another successful year, with strong earnings that allow us to return to our members a solid dividend on their capital investment. We are delighted that our unusually high earnings for the quarter enable us to also pay a supplemental dividend," commented President - CEO Cindy L. Konich.
Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $80.2 million. The increase of $44.7 million compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to higher Other Income that primarily resulted from litigation settlements related to our private-label mortgage-backed securities ("PLMBS") and unrealized gains on derivatives and hedging activities. Net Interest Income After Provision for Credit Losses increased by $5.0 million or 8% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the same period in 2012, due to higher prepayment fees on Advances and lower interest expense on Mandatorily Redeemable Capital Stock, partially offset by lower net interest spreads.
Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $218.0 million. The increase of $74.7 million compared to 2012 was primarily due to higher Other Income that mainly resulted from litigation settlements related to our PLMBS, unrealized gains on derivatives and hedging activities and net realized gains on the sale of PLMBS. Net Interest Income After Provision for Credit Losses increased by $8.2 million or 3% in the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to 2012, due to higher prepayment fees on Advances, a reversal of a portion of the provision for credit losses and lower interest expense on Mandatorily Redeemable Capital Stock, partially offset by lower net interest spreads.
Konich added, "The level of earnings generated in 2013 is particularly beneficial to our Affordable Housing Program as $25 million will be available in 2014 for grants that create or rehabilitate housing that's affordable for low-income families living in our members' communities. This amount is especially fitting since 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the program's inception."
Total Assets at December 31, 2013 were $37.8 billion, a net decrease of $3.4 billion or 8% compared to December 31, 2012. Advances outstanding totaled $17.3 billion. The net decrease of 4% compared to December 31, 2012 was attributable to prepayments by a single depository member, partially offset by a net increase in Advances to all other depository members and a net increase in Advances to insurance company members. Mortgage Loans Held for Portfolio totaled $6.2 billion. The net increase of 3% compared to December 31, 2012 was attributable to purchases of mortgage loans under our MPP Advantage program and purchases of participation interests from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka under the Mortgage Partnership Finance® program. Investments totaled $10.8 billion. The net decrease of 36% compared to December 31, 2012 was primarily attributable to a managed reduction in short-term investments.
Consolidated Obligations at December 31, 2013 totaled $34.0 billion. The net decrease of $2.3 billion or 6% compared to December 31, 2012 was attributable to lower funding needs.
Total Capital at December 31, 2013 was $2.4 billion. The net increase of $167.8 million or 8% for the year ended December 31, 2013 consisted of a net increase in Retained Earnings of $160.4 million and a favorable change in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) of $31.8 million, partially offset by a net decrease in Capital Stock of $24.4 million.
Total Regulatory Capital at December 31, 2013 was $2.4 billion. The decrease of $297.9 million or 11% for the year ended December 31, 2013 consisted of repurchases of excess stock (classified as Capital Stock and Mandatorily Redeemable Capital Stock) totaling $583.6 million, partially offset by proceeds from the sale of Capital Stock, net of redemptions of Mandatorily Redeemable Capital Stock, of $125.3 million and a net increase in Retained Earnings of $160.4 million. Our regulatory capital-to-assets ratio at December 31, 2013 was 6.3%, which exceeds all applicable regulatory capital requirements.
Konich concluded, "Our Bank continues to be well positioned financially to reliably provide low-cost liquidity and longer-term funding to our members, as well as to purchase conforming home mortgages through our MPP."
