INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis ("FHLBI" or "bank") declared dividends on class B-1 and class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 4.00% and 3.20%, respectively. These dividends will be paid in cash on February 20, 2015.
"We're pleased to be able to provide our members with a solid dividend on their capital investment," FHLBI President and CEO Cindy L. Konich said. "Our members' active involvement with the bank helps ensure a safe and reliable flow of liquidity to communities across Indiana and Michigan."
Financial Results Summary
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $17 million. The decrease of $61 million compared to the same quarter in 2013 was due to net proceeds from litigation settlements in 2013 related to private-label mortgage-backed securities ("PLMBS"); unrealized losses on derivatives and hedging activities in 2014; and lower prepayment fees on advances.
Net income for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $117 million, a decrease of $86 million compared to the prior year due to narrower net interest spreads; a decrease in prepayment fees collected on advances; lower net proceeds from litigation settlements related to certain of our PLMBS; unrealized gains in 2013 related to derivative and hedging activities; and realized gains from the sale of PLMBS in 2013.
In 2014, the bank allocated $13 million to its Affordable Housing Program ("AHP"). In 2015, these funds will be available to FHLBI members to help address their communities' affordable housing needs, including housing rehabilitation, construction and accessibility, and homebuyer down-payment assistance. The bank's annual AHP contribution is a fixed amount based on 10% of net earnings before interest expense on mandatorily redeemable capital stock.
"AHP grants are a concrete means for FHLBI to deliver on its housing mission - helping families throughout Indiana and Michigan afford housing by partnering with local financial institutions," Konich explained.
Balance Sheet Highlights
- Total assets at December 31, 2014 were $41.9 billion. The net increase of $4.1 billion compared to December 31, 2013 was primarily attributable to an increase in advances.
- Total liabilities at December 31, 2014 were $39.5 billion. The net increase of $4.1 billion compared to December 31, 2013 was primarily attributable to an increase in consolidated obligations to fund our asset growth.
- Total capital at December 31, 2014 for the Bank was $2.4 billion - essentially unchanged from December 31, 2013.
Advances are secured loans we provide to FHLBI's member institutions. In general, usage of advance products fluctuates in accordance with members' funding needs related to their deposit levels, mortgage pipelines, investment opportunities, available collateral, other balance sheet strategies, and the cost of alternative funding opportunities.
FHLBI's advances outstanding totaled $20.8 billion at December 31, 2014, a net increase of $3.5 billion compared to December 31, 2013, driven by a 22% increase in advances to insurance companies and 19% growth in advances to depository institutions. Advances to insurance company members accounted for 62% of advances at December 31, 2014, while advances to depository members - comprising commercial banks, thrifts and credit unions - accounted for 38% of the advance portfolio.
Mortgage Loans Held for Portfolio
We purchase mortgage loans from members to support our housing mission, provide an additional source of liquidity to members, and diversify our investments. In general, the volume of mortgage loans purchased is affected by several factors, including interest rates, competition, the general level of housing activity in the United States, the level of refinancing activity and consumer product preferences.
Mortgage loans held for portfolio totaled $6.8 billion at December 31, 2014, a net increase of $653 million due to increased member use of our Mortgage Purchase Program ("MPP") Advantage product. MPP Advantage was introduced in 2010, and the original MPP product is no longer offered. As a result, FHLBI's MPP Advantage holdings continue to grow, representing 55% of the bank's mortgage portfolio at December 31, 2014, compared to 41% of the December 31, 2013 portfolio.
The primary source of funds for FHLBI, and for the other 11 Federal Home Loan Banks ("FHLBanks") throughout the U.S., is the sale of consolidated obligations in the capital markets under the authority of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and issued through the FHLBanks' Office of Finance.
FHLBI's consolidated obligations at December 31, 2014 totaled $38.1 billion, a net increase of $4.1 billion compared to December 31, 2013 based on higher funding needs primarily driven by increased demand for advances. The primary liability for these consolidated obligations rests with FHLBI, however, they are the joint and several obligation of all FHLBanks, and are backed solely by the financial resources of the FHLBanks.
FHLBI is a cooperative whose member financial institutions and former members (or their legal successors) own all of our capital stock as a condition of membership or to support their outstanding borrowings. As borrowing levels fluctuate, excess capital stock may result. For the year ended December 31, 2014, total capital increased slightly to $2.4 billion as significant proceeds from the sale of capital stock and an increase in retained earnings were offset by redemptions of excess capital stock.
Total regulatory capital consists of capital stock, mandatorily redeemable capital stock and retained earnings. Our regulatory capital-to-assets ratio at December 31, 2014 was 5.6%, which exceeds all applicable regulatory capital requirements.
